As far as I know it’s not been a particular special anniversary year of Michael Jackson’s death, but nevertheless, the singer has been the talk of the town once more in the past few weeks.
It all started with newspapers breathing new life into the “findings of child porn” at the Neverland ranch, during police investigations years, many years before. Levelheaded fans, as well as Jackson’s family, were quick to remind everyone that these pictures were, in fact, never found. According to reports, pictures were indeed found of pornographic nature, but with adults in it and, in most cases, they were found as part of art books.
Easing the rumor mill is hard though, especially surrounding such a mysterious and estranged man. So a few days later, we all got reminded of it again when a rerun of Martin Bashir’s documentary hit the TV screens.
