On all the music channels, the video for "Smooth Criminal" is chopped in half, and it keeps switching back and forth between fast- and slow-motion. Why?
That's actually the official video released to the music channels, which even in The Eighties couldn't devote that much time to one video. This version also appears over the end credits of Moonwalker.
I understand the Dangerous tour not making it to the U.S. and Canada (the child molestation allegations and painkiller problems of 1993 brought it to a premature end), but there's never been a proper explanation for the HIStory tour afterward — which turned out to be his last — only doing two dates in Hawaii. Anyone here know why this was?
Joe Jackson. Seriously, what the hell is up with him?
He's an abusive parent, and it sounds an awful lot like his own father was abusive. That's a lot of what's up, at least with regard to Michael.
In This Is It, didn't anyone foresee a problem (at the very least, a credibility issue) with using different shots of Michael performing any given song, that are clearly from different takes made obvious by the fact that he's often dressed totally different from one to the next?
