'Dirty Diana' is about Diana Ross.
Michael Jackson told the truth about his surgeryIt's unfortunate that the "established truth" is that he lied. His face really never changed that much. If you look at those "many faces of MJ" videos each picture shows him making a different face, in different lighting, as well as aging over time etc. His changing skin color is what primarily provides the optical illusion (other factors include his hair styles and his various eye brow trims).
Micheal Jackson "died" to save faceNotice how everyone immediately started to focus on Michael Jackson being the King of Pop rather than the butt of molestation jokes?
Ayatollah Khamenei and Mahmoud Ahemedinijad ordered the murder of Michael Jackson.For two whole weeks, the Iranian establishment tried to impose a blackout on news going out of Iran and failed. Unable to shut down an Internet hive mind which regards censorship as damage and simply routes information around it, they saw no way to avoid having their brutal crackdowns splashed across Western front pages and cable news than to cause the death of a particularly beloved but trainwrecky celeb, causing the Western news outlets to black out all other news for
The leaders of London ordered him dead.They saw his already-sold-out comeback "tour" and worried that there WOULD be imitators, other comebacks-by-doing-an-insane-number-of-shows-at-one-venue-in London. If that happened, the city's image would be transformed from a major world city at the cutting edge of music and arts into EuroBranson.
Michael Jackson was assassinated by Chinese agentsThe resulting news blitz took Western media attention away from the protests and deaths in Western China.
Michael Jackson was a victim of foul play.Sudden cardiac arrest? Sounds awfully familiar...◊
MICHAEL ISN'T DEAD!What? Somebody had to say it.
Michael Jackson is going to jump out of the casket during his memorial service and sing "Thriller".
He committed suicide.There was a recent story about his having cancer. Could it be that the cancer was incurable, and he decided to end his own life rather than waste away?
Publicity StuntHis death is suspiciously close to his planned concert series in July, which was sold out already. The theory goes that a revised 'tribute' concert featuring many different artists will be held, and those who had already bought tickets for his tour can attend this benefit concert instead with the same tickets. So, at the concert, a figure assumed to be a dummy or animatronic puppet will appear as a Zombie from his Thriller music video. Then, the puppet will get up and start the Thriller dance. Then it will be revealed that he's alive. It'll create one of the biggest, wildest, most talked-about events for decades to come, solidifying his status as the King of Pop forever.
Michael Jackson planned to finally perform onstage with "Weird Al" Yankovic on the last of the This Is It concerts.But then he died...
Michael Jackson bleached his skin because he had vitiligo.According to Michael Jackson, he was first diagnosed with vitiligo in 1986. If we assume that he was telling the truth, then we have to account for why he seemed to gradually become paler and paler over the next five to six years until he was basically white, rather than just getting more and more pale patches as the melanin disappeared. So here's the WMG theory: rather than going around with patchy skin or covering the pale patches with dark makeup every day, he bleached his unaffected skin to "even it out".
Someone wrote Jackson's name in the Death Note.It makes so much sense.
Michael Jackson was framed for money.It was obvious that Evan Chandler nursed a personal grudge against Michael Jackson for taking his son Jordan's attention away from him. In addition, accusations of child sexual abuse are easy villainy points to pin and difficult to defend against; and, if you are found guilty, you are effectively punished forever. His quotes lend credence to this.
Michael Jackson was an innovative person.He did a lot in terms of music videos and how to perform on stage; regardless of what you think of him, he was an innovator. Innovator, hmmmm...OH CRAP! MICHAEL JACKSON WAS AN INNOVATOR! It all makes sense now!
Michael Jackson was Karl Kroenen.It's all spelled out in the first movie's artbook: A beautiful child with nearly divine singing talent and loads of curly hair who went through an awkward adolescence and developed a strange, self-destructive surgical addiction, which just about cost him his face, which would have been perfectly fine if he left it alone. He liked to dress in dazzling military academy/marching band style with armbands, and he was always disguised and masked in public to protect himself from germs and being noticed. (The last part didn't work). He surrounded himself with only like-minded people, and he seemed to have an unhealthy fixation on children. And then there's this outfit (bottom of page) from the HIStory tour.
Michael finally got his wish to be one of the Men In Black.He is now Agent M, happily saving the universe and zapping people with the memory wiping thingy. Woe betide whoever has to "babysit" him. Now, if you'll just direct your attention to the device in my hand...
Michael Jackson returned to his home planet.
Michael Jackson is a lich...Made of dog shit. He died during his time with the Jackson Five as a child; but his father still needed him for the cash printing machine, and so he made him into a dog shit lich with dark magic. This explains why he got paler as he got older and why he used sperm donors to conceive his children. Also, his father looks like he's suffering wear and tear from years of using evil magic.
Michael Jackson was a castratoCan't take credit for this one- it was on a friend's journal. If true, it would explain so many things:
Michael Jackson Came Back WrongThere was more to the famous Pepsi commercial incident than we knew. An infamously bad biopic depicted the incident as Jackson's hair catching on fire from a pyrotechnic and then falling down a flight of stairs off the stage. It's entirely possible that that's exactly how it happened. Perhaps he hit his head badly and was rushed to the hospital in secret, but not in time to save him. But he came back anyway... only it wasn't he. Something else was in Michael's body. That something else twisted and deformed him, physically and mentally, over time. Finally, too warped to function, the demon released Michael's body in 2009, allowing him to be at peace at last.
Michael Jackson was killed by Hush in a massive manipulative conspiracy
Michael Jackson's soul was put into a prototype EVA.And the angels won't be able to resist the urge to dance.
Michael Jackson transformed into a giant robot ala Moonwalker and flew to Pluto so that he could join Elvis Presley, John Lennon, George Harrison, and all of the Paul McCartney clones at an intergalatic pub, playing music for various space aliens
Michael Jackson is a TimelordHe had many faces and his last incarnation fall slowly apart just like the Master's 13th body.
Michael Jackson's death revealed the more bitter morals of celebrity life.With all the stereotypical issues with most Celebrity lives, Michael Jackson's skid-to-death decline sticks out as a moral enigma. Everybody prior to his death either honored him but a majority, like the entire American population had made him the butt end to every pedophile joke. To add insult to injury the majority of the U.S. only honored him after his death. This is sort of a fucked up bit of truth because no one had ever held a show commemorating any other celebrities like that before. Billy Mays would have had the same sort of event to remember him. Honestly the broken moral here is- "If you cannot like them alive, honor them when they are dead".
Michael Jackson was kidnapped by True Fae and his "death" was really the death of his Fetch.After the infamous Pepsi fire, Michael was spirited away to Arcadia where he performed for a bratty pre-teen who forced him to perform for his friends in Arcadia. Meanwhile, a sloppily made Fetch was left in his place that slowly decayed (plastic surgeries, lightening of the skin) and became obsessed with Peter Pan because the Michael in Arcadia wasn't aging. The fetch lamented its own existence which drove it to self destructive behavior. It all hit a boiling point last summer when Michael poisoned his Keeper and Moonwalked his way out of Arcadia right in front of his Fetch who had a heart attack and died. Michael now reigns as the Spring King of Los Angeles and holds private performances for his Changeling subjects. His new material is undoubtedly some of the best music ever written but it pains him that he'll never be able to share it with the fans who stuck by him, even through his fetch's bouts of insanity.
Michael Jackson had magical abilitiesBack in the 80's even women seemed to be enchanted by his singing, he must have had magical powers like a genie or he might have been a shapeshifter (no not the 'reptilian' kind), possibly had similar powers to his character in Ghosts or was some sort of magical being.
Sega will come clean about MJ's involvement in Sonic 3 in 2014, or maybe 2019Okay, so the only time someone from Sega spoke about MJ involvement in Sonic 3, the guy claimed that all of MJ tracks had been replaced. However, Brad Buxer has confirmed that MJ did work on at least the ending credits theme, which obviously is still in the game. So, what is happening here? Very simply, Sega isn't allowed to talk about MJ's involvement. As Brad Buxer has said, MJ wasn't satisfied with how his music would sound on a Mega Drive. When he left the project, he had Sega sign a confidentiality agreement: you can leave my tracks in there, but don't ever mention my name in relations to this game (especially, don't use my name to advertise this game). The fact that Michael is now dead and that Brad Buxer has spilled the beans doesn't change anything: Sega is still bound by that contract. How does that lead us to 2014? Well, common sense dictates that such a contract cannot run for all of eternity and must expire at some point; let's say after 20 years (or 25). Sonic 3 was released in 1994, which means that in 2014 (or 2019), Sega will finally be able to tell the truth.
Michael was murdered by Joe.For the Evulz, obviously.
Annie wasn't OK.
Michael died thinking the whole world was hopelessly pervertedThe very idea that what he was doing with those young boys could be viewed in a sexual light never even occurred to him. He probably spent the entire period from 1994 until his death wondering how anybody could simply assume that pedophilia of all things was the most likely explanation.
