The Jacksons never looked happier then they did in this vintage photo that The WOW Report dug up from somewhere. (It’s Randy, La Toya, and Michael, au natural) After Michael Jackson had most of his plastic surgery and skin lightened, he tried to buy and destroy all the photos he could find of himself before the makeover. Because he was such a public figure it proved to be an impossible task, but he TRIED.

    Someone who worked with him for a while confirmed a few years ago that Jackson’s ruined nose was, in fact, prosthetic, and that he was regretful of all the surgeries. Completely understandable, given the final result.

    Unfortunately, the well of his self-hatred was bottomless. It must have been very, very hard for him to live with himself. And ultimately he couldn’t. :(

    Speaking of La Toya—it was interesting to see that after a lot of speculation that she held the deed to the family home, it turns out to have been in one of MJ’s lawyer’s names.

    What a (completely expected) surprise!

    (And, no, the lawyer wasn’t Howard K. Stern, by the way, but it could have been. Considering that Stern was just ajudged to hold legal title to the home Anna Nicole Smith paid for—presumably leaving Anna’s daughter on the streets, essentially.)

    And why shouldn’t unemployed/unemployable lawyer Stern build a little property portfolio for himself?

    Remember, he was acquitted of causing Anna’s overdose death. And charges were never brought in the untimely death of her young son/heir—which preceded hers.

    A question, if anyone knows: Was Howard also Brittany Murphy’s lawyer?

    Michael Jackson was a tragic figure in the end. I’m just amazed he didn’t die sooner. Doesn’t take away from the music and how brilliant some of it was.

    Another piece of conclusive evidence that MJ’s white, anglo-featured kids are NOT his bio children…

    Wow!! Latoya is unrecognizable and Michael actually looks(for lack of a better word)….human.

    It is very sad that someone HAD, what the majority of the rest of world wants, and could not find happiness in it. It is amazing how powerful the mind can be and how self esteem issues can overtake a persons life.

    Michael and Randy both are handsome kids in that photo. I would not have known that was Latoya (thought it was Rebbie. She was pretty and looked normal in that photo.

    This should go on a billboard at each end of Gary Indiana.

    The so called genius of Michael was a serial child molestor who bought off parents. He should have been hanged by his small and horny black balls under those billboards.

    Alternatively, Strom—you and anyone else with an open mind might want to read “Was Michael Jackson Framed?” by Mary A. Fisher, published by “GQ” magazine in 1994 (available online).

    It remains, perhaps, the ONLY in-depth investigation into the allegations against Jackson.

    The revelations about Evan Chandler, to mention just one part of it, are shocking and very disturbing.

    You remember that Chandler was the father of Jordan, the kid at the heart of the first case. He shot himself to death about six months after Jackson died, after several violent episodes with his son “over money.”

    And don’t get me started about what Fisher uncovered regarding Chandler’s lawyer.

    Read it for yourself.

  11. By Rick
    On April 26, 2011 at

    Chicago, I’m also aware of Chandler’s dubious integrity. Whatever else Michael may have been, I don’t believe he was a pedophile. You have to wade through a lot of Michael’s weirdness and baggage, and weigh it carefully to reach that conclusion I’ll grant you, but it’s what I honestly believe. As for the mother and son at the center of the second set of allegations, she was so clearly a charlatan with a documented history, the case speaks for itself.

  12. By ChicagoLand
    On April 26, 2011 at

    Rick, I’m inclined to agree with you regarding Jackson.

    The best research into the subject correlates that a victim of child sexual abuse will also go on to become an abuser.

    I’m not aware of a history of abuse in Jackson’s background.

    And as the Fisher piece argues convincingly, their was no evidence to support the allegation that Jackson was a pedophile.

    But undoubtedly, he seems to have had an arrested emotional development—which drew him to other “children,” which he, it seems, considered himself to be all of his life.

    The Michael Jackson molestation circus was HUGE in terms of the public interest (and ratings) it garnered, and made the careers of people like Diane Dimond, to name one—people who would not have been interested in letting the facts get in the way of a good story.

    As an aside about the topic above. Just a few years ago “Off The Wall” was reissued—it was one of Jackson’s biggest hits, and the reissue commemorated the 25th (!!) anniversary.

    As you may know, Jackson insisted that the reissued cover only show him from the knees down—erasing completely that all-too familiar image of his handsome then-obviously-black face from view. Man, talk about denial. Sad.

    He was an extremely talented man who had troubles in equal measure.

    MJ despised his father — and if he had not gone under the knife, would’ve been the spitting image of his dad. Of course, there was no way he would let that happen. A talented, but sad, life.

  18. By Reta
    On April 26, 2011 at

    Perhaps they did have somewhat large noses, normal for a lot of blacks, but what they had done to they is horrific. Looking at La Toya on The Apprentice is hard to do. Her nose is scary and monster looking, nearly as horribly as Michael’s final version. maybe she has body dismorphic disorder as well. Tho, she seems like a nice person.

    I think the worst looking thing about this pic it the afros. Esp Michaels, but that was the times too.

  19. By Natalie
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Building a play ranch as a way to attract kids is a classic pedophilia move. He made himself a magnet for kids and how on earth can you NOT question a man who openly admited to sleeping with boys? The “pure love” he talked about is also a classic pedophile excuse to justify the abuse by redefining his actions as love and how it was mutual…the kids loved him and he couldn’t keep them out of his bed. I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe MJ was a pedophile just because he created some music and danced.

  20. By palermo
    On April 27, 2011 at

    I have never seen a more dysfunctional family, the level of self hatred is off the charts. Michael was a very good looking man before he mutilated himself. Almost all of them got nosejobs. You will never convince me he didn’t molest young boys or that he ever had sex with a woman. Of course those kids weren’t his and they are better off now, they had disturbingly weird lives before, always hiding under scarves in public.

    Some very deranged people are totally fixated with Howard Stern, Esq. and his personal affairs. Stern is administrator/ Estate Executor and his duty is to pay the bills. He DOES NOT own Anna Nicole’s house. He simply pays the bills for the Estate. Larry Birkhead has no job and his own income since he obtained custody in 2007. Stern was not Brittany Murphy’s lawyer.

  22. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    ^^^ Hi, Howard K. Stern’s Mom; in response to your disinformation (polite word for bald-faced lie):

    “[Howard K. Stern, the one-time love (sic) of Anna Nicole Smith and the acting executor of her estate, was granted the right to transfer the title of a home purchased by the late actress – a home currently occupied by her surviving child, Dannielynn, and her natural father, Larry Birkhead, can reveal.

    According to court documents obtained exclusively by, Smith - aka Vickie Lynn Marshall - purchased the home in April 2005 using the name Vickie Lynn Marshall but within one day of buying the home, transferred the deed to one of her companies, Hot Smoochie Lips, Inc.

    Stern had requested to transfer the title of the home from Hot Smoochie Lips, Inc. to himself, as the executor of her estate. The judge granted his request Tuesday.

    In the documents filed in Los Angeles Superior court, Stern stated: “Petitioner believes that the Decedent's intent in transferring title to the Corporation was to protect her privacy, and that she inadvertently used the Corporation as the entity to do so rather than establishing a new entity for the purpose of owning the Home.”

    Stern also stated that “Anna Nicole and her daughter. Danielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead, resided in the Home. For continuity, following Anna Nicole's death, Danielynn, a minor who is also the sole beneficiary of the Estate, and Larry E. Birkhead, Danneilynn's natural father, have resided in the Home and continue to do so. The Home therefore has not generated income for the Estate”

    Stern claims that since Smith’s death, “the Estate has made all mortgage, utility and hazard insurance payments on the Home.”

    It is unclear if Stern immediately intends to sell the home, and if so, where Dannielynn or Birkhead will go.

    An attorney for Stern tells that no determination has been made on what is to be done with the property.]“

    Good looking family. Back then.

    Why they mangled their faces is beyond me. They were attractive – trying to get white features ruined their looks.

  24. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    The ESTATE pays the bills.

    “Title” is defined as “right or claim of OWNERSHIP to property.”

    Are you intimating that Stern will be seeking custody of Dannielyn (sole beneficiary to the ANS Estate), as his next move?

    Didn’t he already try that when he claimed—untruthfully—to be her father?

    But you’re quite right. Some people seem to have shown an inordinate interest in the actions and personal affairs of Howard K. Stern…

    those people being homicide detectives, prosecutors, grand juries, etc.

  25. By Reta's Illiterate Rainbow
    On April 27, 2011 at

    reta, you can’t write worth a cuss.

  26. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    It’s interesting to read the court documents regarding Anna Nicole Smith’s house.

    Was the entity (Hot Smoochie Lips, Inc.) that was originally named as owner of the property somehow defective in its Articles of Incorporation, organization, etc.?

    Otherwise, WHY exactly was a change (in ownership) even necessary? Remember, Anna’s corporate entity has owned the home since way back in 2005.

    Maybe the lawyer who set up the corporation can answer these questions.

    Let’s see…oh! How about that? The lawyer in question turns out to be one Howard K. Stern.

    What a small, convenient world, no?

  27. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    And NATURAL FATHER Larry Birkhead’s fulltime job is caring for and ensuring the well-being of his young daughter—a young daughter who has had health issues dating from her birth.

    And, when you consider the RATE OF MORTALITY among her immediate family—her mother, Anna Nicole died suddenly; her step-brother Daniel, who also died suddenly (mere weeks before his mother under questionable circumstances while visting Anna in the hospital in the Bahamas where she had just given birth to Dannielyn)—well, it’s understandable that people in Dannielyn’s life who love her would be concerned for her future.

  28. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    And should anything unfortunate befall Larry Birkhead (one wonders how he ever got out of The Bahamas ALIVE—under the circumstances), would anyone be surprised if custody of Dannielyn would then be awarded to the late Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer and “good friend?”

  29. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Finally, Have you noticed? It always adds “complications” to a given thing—and circumstances unforeseen—when a FOREIGN COUNTRY is thrown into the mix.

    Different laws, standards, customs, etc., from those of the United States, mean that situations (and crimes great and small) can often be effected quite successfully by people who have taken the time to do a little research beforehand.

    Remember Sante Kimes and her son, Kenneth?
    The mother and son duo who shared homicide as a sort of hobby?

    (The excellent book “Son of a Grifter” was written about them; Sante was portrayed in two separate movies by both Mary Tyler Moore and Judy Davis.)

    Well, Sante—whose specialty was securing ownership to property theretofore owned by people who met untimely deaths—also came to love the West Indies.

    And why not? The islands are convenient, lying just outside the US, and provide all sorts of criminal opportunities (and the cover-up of same) for those so inclined.

  30. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    *One correction: The late Daniel would be considered Dannielyn’s half-brother.

  31. By Mona Garrett

    Oh, and while lawyer Howard K. Stern’s mom was on the line earlier in the thread, we were hoping that she might also dispel or confirm the suggestion that the “K” stands for Kevorkian.

    Nope, jess—that’s LaToya. One way to confirm: Look at Randy in that pic—he’s many years younger than Rebbie, much closer in age to La Toya.

  34. By Bluejay
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Larry Birkhead has no discernible talent or brains, and generates no income. Smells fishy. And the lack of prosecuting Stern, possible serial psychopathic killer, is too strange.

  35. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    @Bluejay: Tell me about it.

    And the strangest thing is, that whomever “belicosso” (some variation of the word bellicose, meaning angry?) may be, took the time to respond with a ridiculous LIE—and not just any lie, one that is EXACTLY OPPOSITE from the truth.

    “He [Howard K. Stern] DOES NOT own Anna Nicole’s house,” writes belicosso, and yet, as the court documents PROVE, that is PRECISELY what this recent ruling accomplishes: it transfers LEGAL OWNERSHIP OF ANNA NICOLE SMITH’S HOUSE TO HOWARD K. STERN.

    The question is, why would someone purport such an easily disproved lie?

    Well, if belicosso is Howard K. Smith’s mom, that might explain it; or a PR flack working for him—after all, they’re PAID to lie; or,
    might belicosso be Howard K. Stern himself?—that seems the most likely answer.

    Given all the attention generated by Anna’s death and the “investigation” which followed, Howard K. Stern has an understandable interest in flying under the radar these days.

    But you cannot deny that he has been keeping busy, busy, busy—judging by this court ruling.

    As many have said before, in cases of untimely, unlikely, inexplicable death(s), ask first: “Cui Buono?”

    Literally, WHO BENEFITS?

  36. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Should be: “Howard K. Stern’s mom…” Apologies.

  37. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Three events—which came in rapid-fire succession, even before Anna Nicole died—are more than enough to raise serious questions about this case.

    They are:

    Howard K. Stern’s “marriage” to Anna Nicole in The Bahamas, which subsequently was proved to be (contrary to Stern’s media posturing), NOT a legal marriage—and maybe not even a ceremonial one.

    The horrifying death of Daniel in Anna’s hospital room in The Bahamas following his sudden collapse—and after which Anna was heard to shriek, “You did this!!”—apparently at Howard K. Stern.

    The media circus which ensued when Howard K. Stern asserted paternity of baby Dannielyn—an assertion that he surely knew was UNTRUE at the time, and which others close to Anna had rightfully rejected out of hand.

    Maybe the smartest move Anna Nicole ever made was to refuse to marry Stern—no matter how hard he may have worked to convince her to do so.

    And, obviously, after the death of Daniel, any contemplation of marriage to Stern would have been absolutely out of the question.

    But within a matter of weeks, Anna Nicole was dead, too.

    Resourceful to the last, Stern played one last gambit with the custody circus—a situation which was resolved, by the way, in not only the establishment of Birkhead as the natural father, but an agreement going forward about the role Howard K. Stern would have in matters relating to Dannielyn and her late mother’s estate.

    Due to legal difficulties, Stern has been unavailable to attend to his interests in the Smith Estate fully, until just recently, resulting in the judge handing him the keys and the DEED to Anna’s house.

    There’s a story here. And it’s as obvious as the proverbial elephant in the room.

    Who knows, as a writer and Hollywood insider, maybe it’s something JC might pursue.

  38. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    Typing too fast, but to clarify: The first two events occurred before Anna died; the third—concerning paternity of Dannielyn—ensued AFTER her death. Again, apologies.

  39. By Mona Garrett
    On April 27, 2011 at

    By the way, the report refers to Howard K. Stern as the “acting” Executor/Administrator of her estate. (WTF?)

    If that term is being used in the standard sense, then it means that Stern was named Executor by a judge, and not so designated in her will.


    Just what were Anna’s feeling toward Stern when she died?

    Apparently, she was barely conscious, given the continual drugged stupor she was in; it would have been very easy for someone to take advantage of her reduced mental capacity.

    So Howard K. Stern’s “job” is that he is Administrator for Anna’s estate, right? Cause he’s paid for this.

    And now he’s Larry and Dannielyn’s LANDLORD, too?


    And you gotta wonder about the mega-level of bottom-feeding that allows someone to have “ATTORNEY for Howard K. Stern” attached to their name.

    Certain people just seem to have a knack for this kind of thing (money-grubbing, being a parasite) IN THEIR DNA. :)

  49. By British Teeth
    On April 28, 2011 at

    Kathy Griffin used to have a bit about Anna in her act. She said watching Anna’s awful reality show was a guilty pleasure.

    But boy did Kathy have Howard’s number even way back then. She referred to him as, “That guy who’s trying to take all [Anna's] money.”

    Guess we know how THAT turned out.

    Why, Howard’s exploits practically make him qualified to be a Hollywood talent agent.

    Or head of the federal reserve bank, or new mayor of Chicago (or permanent resident of a federal prison, like that Made-off guy—but let’s not be catty ;) ).

  50. By British Teeth
    On April 28, 2011 at

    But Dannielyn shouldn’t get too comfortable in the only home she’s ever known—the one her dead mother bought—because the new owner is still deciding what he wants to do with it.

    Indications are that he’s going to sell it, in order to “generate income for the estate.”

    Completely understandable, right?

    See, as the “profit” from the estate goes up, so does the percentage that the administrator draws as salary. And yes, “Hollywood Book-Keeping” rules are applicable here.

    So now we’re wondering: Just HOW MUCH CASH can someone squeeze from a corpse?

    Stay tuned, folks!

  51. By Reta
    On April 28, 2011 at

    Mona, I agree with you completely, you are 100% correct in ALL you say about the deadly Stern. I, as Kathy so rightly identified so early on, knew Howard was a slimeball creep way back when Anna’s scary-disgusting show was on. What I could NEVER figure out was how she didn’t figure him out or anyone ELSE figure him out and get in ANNA’s ear. Maybe she was already too far gone by then. It sure looked like it. She appeared to have NO BRAIN whatsoever by then and was a disgusting fat, bloated, drugged up national joke with humomgous silicone tits she flaunted in everybody’s faces. She truly looked like the clown she later played by the pool when she was pregnant but too stoned to even remember she was pregnant and Howard asked her on camera if she had been taking “mushrooms”.

    My belief is that Howard should be in jail for not only THAT little gem of abuse of a pregnant addict, but what it did to the little girl nearby who pleaded with him to take her to the hospital because she was scared and “something was wrong with Anna”. But Howard only filmed, laughing, in front of a scared and worried little girl and a dangerously drugged up and pregnant Anna.

    I believe he murdered Daniel. He was also seen by the hospital employee flushing something down the toilet right afterwards. I believe Anna’s plea “You killed him Howard” which was overheard by employees to be true as well. Why it wasn’t pursued, I don’t know. All, I can say is don’t visit the Bahamas or Aruba because apparently there is no justice there when it comes to Americans.
    I also think Stern killed the canary. He kept her so drugged up for so long trying to gain complete and utter control of all that stood in his way it was obvious and rediculous. That he had the nerve to claim that child as his and lengthen the time it took for Larry to get custody of his daughter is truly dispicible. He should be jailed for that alone. Why Birkhead didn’t press charges for that I don’t know but it pisses ME off and made the baby take that much longer before she could start bonding with the right parent. That she EVER had to have that creepy slimy disgusting murderer touch her at ALL makes me sick to death!
    That he actually went on Larry King and sat there bold-facedly lying, KNOWING he was not the father and there was no chance he was. EVERYONE knew he ws gay and Anna NEVER let him touch her. She said countless times on her show right into the camera that he gave her the creeps and she’d NEVER do him. The only “love” he had for “her” was her money and things she owned and what he thought she might inherit. He’s THE absolute lowest form of life I have EVER seen and that circus of a show after she died, with the crying idiot “Judge” and Howard lying his ass off on the stand made me want to stand outside the courthouse with a highpowered shotgun and a good sight and pick off that looser Howard because it’s obvious the “law” is never going to do it’s job when it comes to him.

  52. By Mona Garrett

    Thank you so much for what you’ve written.

    You reminded me of some of Stern’s “greatest hits” that I’d forgotten about from the show.

    Will justice ever be served in this case? I couldn’t say. But the fact that Stern has “supporters” (i.e. himself, family members, etc.), who come out of the woodwork squawking MEANS NOTHING and is best left ignored.

    Remember that for decades, a bunch of morons regularly chanted, “Leave Michael Skakel alone!”

    Right up until the moment someone FINALLY put him away for murdering Martha Moxley.

    And welcome back, Reta. You have been missed!

  53. By Mona Garrett
    On April 28, 2011 at

    Anna DETESTED Stern because she KNEW he regarded her strictly as an ATM, nothing more.

    She knew there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for a buck. Deep down—when she was lucid—she most likely saw the handwriting on the wall, foretelling her own fate.

    Because just like Michael Jackson was to some, Anna Nicole was worth far more to Stern dead, than alive.

    And infinitely less trouble that way, too. (Again, like Jackson).

    Reta’s post also reminds us of the apparent “hazards” (many captured on camera) facing Dannielyn even before she was born.

    Not everyone, it seems, was looking forward to the arrival of another potential heir to a certain estate.

    “Miracle baby,” indeed.

    Anyone remember Anna from when she first appeared on the scene?

    If you only knew of her during the latter part of her life, or from that pitiful* reality series, then you never saw what she was at first—and what made her truly special.

    In the beginning in LA, she was an unknown model—and to use an over-used, but singularly appropriate word, she was stunning.

    As in, when you first came across her photograph—those black and white shots, in a double-page ad for Georges Marciano Guess jeans—well, you just stopped.

    And gawked—literally.

    Arrested, mid turning-of-the-page, by the images of this big, blonde, healthy young woman, whose beauty was simply other-worldly.

    Of course, in Hollywood it has become a time-honored cliche for pretty, young blonde women to try to capture even just the smallest measure of whatever it was that Marilyn Monroe had, and try to make it somehow their own (usually unsuccessfully).

    But then, suddenly, there she was—some 20 years after Marilyn’s death—in the flesh, an incarnation.

    Only, not exactly. Because what she really was, what you actually believed you were seeing, was someone who just had to be the secret daughter of Marilyn (and some anonymous Adonis).

    The proof in front of your eyes was all that was needed. At that time in her life, Anna Nicole was perfectly beautiful.

    Because she was an unknown when she appeared in those ads, some people thought that she was European. In fact, many assumed that she was the daughter of Anita Eckberg—the Swedish model and actress who had become, like Marilyn, a sex symbol.

    In truth, Anna had been percolating (with a name that was not Anna Nicole) out in the sticks and scrub of Mexia, Texas—harboring, as another cliche goes, those big dreams.

    When those iconic ads first hit public view in the LA Times Sunday magazine, you could practically hear the phones being snatched up around town as movie people clamored to know: “Who—IS THAT?”

    Well they certainly found out in short order.

    Nope, she didn’t have much acting talent, and after that audacious, bright beginning, things went south—quite gradually at first, and then very quickly near the end.

    By the time the hangers-on and other assorted leeches got to her, she was pretty used up.

    Excepting, of course, her potential for a big payout from the estate of her deceased husband. That made her worth keeping around. At least for a while.


    *Watching the show was painful. But one real aspect of her life always seemed apparent in those broadcasts: her love and affection for her son, Daniel, and his for her.

    Ach! Enough with all this negativity! It’s pointless and has never brought anybody back from the dead anyway, right?

    What people seem to conveniently forget is that after A LOT of planning, hard work and sacrifice, lawyer Howard K. Stern is now officially a HOMEOWNER!

    And for that he deserves our congratulations and our praise. Not all this moaning and doom and gloom.

    Let’s not forget that homeownership is nothing to take lightly in California!

    Especially now days, what with all these deadbeats getting foreclosed-on and being thrown out in the streets where they belong!

    This fact alone means that new homeowner Howard K. Stern is part of an elite group. MAZEL TOV!

    (And confidentially, Howard, if you’re having any trouble getting the tenants to vacate your new home, just let me know. I am personally acquainted with a few wide-bodies who would more than happy to “assist you,” if you know what I mean. Like I said, just let me know.)

    Howard, please keep us informed of your plans for the future. I wouldn’t want to miss your housewarming party for anything!

    Isn’t it OK that the judge handed over Anna’s house to Howard K. Stern, because Howard had said he knew what Anna intended to do with her money and stuff?

    And even though the transfer of title to Howard K. Stern represented a material advantage (to say the least) to Howard K. Stern, and an obvious and egregious conflict of interest, didn’t Judge Steinsternberg or whatever do the right thing because, after all,

    Howard K. Stern was Anna’s Executioner?

    It’s a safe bet that Larry Birkhead probably regrets that he didn’t petition to have lawyer Howard K. Stern removed as Anna’s Executor.

    When Stern was embroiled in sundry criminal proceedings would have obviously been the perfect time to do it, but now, since Larry decided to sit tight, he’s going to be stuck with that tapeworm, dog-shit on the bottom of his shoe—choose your favorite metaphor—for a long time.

    But didn’t some book say that Larry and Stern were actually in cahoots?

    Yes, some alleged journalist named Rena or Renal or something, DID write a book purporting that Larry and Howard K. Stern were lovers and conspired to take Anna’s money together.

    HUGE mistake.

    Because Stern promptly sued her ass—as was appropriate. Since the allegations of the relationship (and other miscellaneous “errors”) seem to have sprung entirely from the imagination of the high functioning moron/authoress.

    If she hasn’t settled by now—or doesn’t at some point, she’s likely to end up on the courthouse steps wearing a barrel and trolling for spare change.

    As for Howard K. Stern, her buffoonery represents a stroke of good fortune, inasmuch as it’s (1) A chance to be attached to some positive news, and (2) Another payday!

    Lucky, lucky Howard K. Stern.

    But not as lucky as Larry Silverstein.

    He was the new owner of the World Trade Center. And since his acquisition for pennies on the dollar, with borrowed money, a mere 6 weeks before the event, he had eaten breakfast EVERY MORNING at the top of one of the towers.

    But not that fateful morning.

    He had a “doctor’s appointment” that no one in his family knew about.

    So Larry Silverstein missed breakfast that morning—and everything that followed it.

    But maybe that’s a story for another time. :)

    I like Michael Jackson for what is inside and understand that he went throw so many changes and he was lonely and sad and never had a childhood and that he missed out on so much and I understand that and feel the same way and when you have to grow up so fast and other people control your life and tell you what to do and where to go and how to do things.

    This picture is something that reminds him of the pain of his future that was to come and in this picture,…None of the stressers and lonelyness has not happened to a large degree and that pressure and tentions and worries would follow him for year to come and this picture is Michael Jackson when he was younger and did not know what his life was going to guide him and show him another direction but it is his youth and it is family and Dear love ones that really loved and cared for him and shared life and ideas and plans and this is the pass and the door is opened toward the future.

    Please point me to the article where Micharl made these statements. I would love to see them. If you have any vintage Michael Jackson magazines, etc. you would know there are plenty of photos of Michael in the fro, etc. everywhere. If you ever even saw his mother’s tribute book that she did especially for his fans, you would know that. There’s no way in hell he coud have destroyed them and I doubt he ever said that he did. This is yet another attempt to dredge up some old negative rumors to start yet another boring conversation about Michael and his heritage. Time to give it up folks. Find another victim to terrorize and destroy. Michael’s legacy is being restored as you speak. While you’re here trying to raise the dead, Michael’s future is looking brighter than ever. You’re losing your power to encite by leaps and bounds. Stay here and keep yourselves deleriously entertained. Misery loves company. In the meantime, we’ll keep on making strides towards righting the wrongs. And guess what, we’re so WINNING (-:

    And where, might I ask, is your actual PROOF that he ever tried to have this photo destroyed, or any pre-surgery photos at all? You make this claim, which in turn generates a bajillion comments in regard to this claim, yet you offer NOTHING substantial to actually back it up as verified fact. I am quite familiar with this particular photo and after several years of researching Jackson’s life extensively, have never heard of any such claim to destroy it. That being said, this was an era in which he was very self-conscious about his appearance-NOT bcause it was pre surgery-but because of his extreme acne. I think he did attempt to destroy some of those pics that were very unflattering as they revealed just how ravaged and pockmarked his face was during this time. However, he was not so stupid (as implied here) as to believe he could literally wipe out his whole past history. He was a Jackson, for crying out loud, and his whole life had been played out in front of the cameras. I do agree with most of the comments here that it’s sad he could never just realize and accept what a beautiful young man he was. But for that matter, he was never happy with his appearance at ANY stage of his life, before or after surgery.

    Obviously as he grew older and weirder he became more ashamed of his blackness, as did the sisters. He was fawned over for a few songs and became ultra rich. He had it much better than did the BLACK blues singers of earlier days who had more talent and didnt make much more than a living. They were comfortable in their skin whereas Mike became a pervert who deserved the whip.

    Yet Gene Simmons went on record last year — mind you, a year after MJ died — saying, “There is no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.”

    Michael should have been castrated and received the bull whip instead of being made a saint.

  73. By Strom
    On August 16, 2011 at

    Now Gene is banned from a previously booked concert because of this statement of what most people believe is a fact. Has there been any follow up to see the kids that Michael molested and paid off….has their family stolen the money and the kids become card carrying fags? Enquiring minds want to know.

    No more tributes to Michael the pervert and his greedy family!

    Over time people change? It depends on the time in your life and what you are going throw that goes into a picture of a person…It is all about how you felt and what you where going throw that day…But all in all we all change and down the road we feel better about the way we dress and look and mature…But as far as Destroying pictures of yourself is hard to do? When you have people that love and care about you and want to remember that day…Getting your hand on pictures is hard and is something other people that love you are not going to allow you to get your hands on there pictures.

    Sometimes people don’t feel good about themselves and alway want to look better and take better care of themself and or have problems with certain parts of there body and face and other areas and that is the reason people have Drs that specialize in that area of fixing you up and make you look the way you feel inside. But I am a lucky…I Like myself completely and would not change myself for the world but some people don’t like themselves but…Michael Jackson alway had the love of his fans Male and Female and this people would do anything to meet him and talk to him and get to know him better…..He is a wonderful singer and a wonderful dancer and most of all made this world a better place for me and my family and…I will always love him and believe in him until the day…I die…I am a true fan of his Art and Talent and when he died many of my friends where heart broken…This picture means allot to the world….Because it is the pass and it is a wonderful way of shareing a small part of his life with the world.

    I Can see the Sun coming down on there heads and it must be a lovely day in this picture…But this picture is special and timeless…Because this family will never be together like that again and so it is nice to share this picture with us and allow the world to see Michael Jackson in a whole new way and that means changeing and becoming the person he is from this day foreward?

    When your day goes bad.. And your taking a picture all it reminds you of is that your day was bad to start off with..Remember the bad day in negative ways and it might had been something some one said to you or something bad might had just happened?
