What did she have to say about that accomplishment after the game she really downplayed it for so long and because this has been an inevitability for so long this was supposed to happen during the installation tournament march right so she's had her time to prepare for when this milestone would have happened it all continued to get pushed back and cancelled so she's had time to contextual is a this is special because of i think the magnitude of that many wins like you never go into coaching. I never thought we'll. I'm gonna try to win a thousand games or anything like that but this is special. I mean having currently the number one team you know being undefeated planning and i will never forget this. I think she was able to really lead into it more. And i think going forward. It'll start to hit her. She kind of joked about she swims every morning today. She finally go in the pool in it would be seeking in. I thought about today when i was swimming. I said you know. I hope we do play. Well i hope you know the record is set and going to be in the pool tomorrow. I'm going to be the same person. Vanderveer surpassed the leap pat summitt to claim this milestone. What kind of relationship do these two legendary coaches share. It was special. You know. I think it really came out. Because in the early nineties tara had made this promise to jennifer if she went to stanford they play at tennessee at least once and that became a twenty five year series because they enjoyed the competitive aspect of it more than anything. She helped me get better as a coach. Because you had to really work hard to prepare and we lost more games than we won against interstate. The enjoyed having to brilliant minds with really talented players going back and forth every single year. And even yesterday tara talking about how. She's hoping that pets looking down on earned smiling we were friends and obviously competitors. She would tell me tire your teammates rebound better. I think all in all you know she had great passion for the game. And i think she sees that with me she was a great mentor and a great friend and i think she'd be proud of us. So that relationship between the two of them was incredibly strong and then even between the two schools gotten incredibly strong zaqueu recently spoke with the number of women who played under vanderveer across her forty two years as a head coach. I what did some of these players tell you about her coaching style. I spoke to aid tucker who is one of towers longest tenured assistance before she retired just a couple years ago and she was talking about kind of value of repetition. Here strong believer repetition for not only are you covering the fundamentals but you cover the same thing over and over and over and then once you've got protection. If you continue to do it again you will become an expert in that task. i think some people think. Don't you have another drill for this or can't we do something else today. But you know. I think you know in hindsight. That's how you build your habits. It'd be doing something over and over. I spoke to jayne appel marinelli dealer day about tara and one of the things she said was it can matter who we were preparing for. We're going to prepare the same exact way every single time that every single day and i mean there were games where we knew. The teams plays better than they knew that. If from that she took that like you can't really be Over prepared as long as you know what's going to happen and you're the best situation for that you're going to succeed over over over to kind of realize like my my life at home with my kids and my husband. My work life my life with friends. I mean every single aspect. I feel like a prepared for and i've thought through. Okay here's option a option b. option so i thought that was kind of poignant is just those life lessons they'd come just from playing basketball are practically applied other portions of her everyday existence on zach rosalyn gold on wednesday who is now a broadcaster actually told you a pretty funny story about how she was. Unable to escape vanderveer's coaching even after her playing days were done. Can you tell us what ross told you about that. It's funny because she had just gotten into broadcasting was just doing game for one of the first times in her career and stands up back at stanford right so tara gives her a call and says hey. You're on campus. Come down to the office on my god. What i thought i was done with this sits down and puts on video and we're looking at a game that i'm calling the broadcaster and she starts going through the game and it's just watching the game minute by minute and she stops. She's watching film like it was ten years go for started the game. We'd listened you. Like i like that rod. Apogee say that would love word the other thing like. Oh we're going to do this. Yeah like even after graduation cars. Coaching me success. And i'll say something about the election and she'll be like i can't believe you're talking about shots. She is somebody who stays so president or blair's lives that she wants him to succeed. She wants to do as well as she can. And this is just a little bit of tar that she could lend in this situation to say. Here's how you can do better. And i want you to succeed. Tara been in the public eye for over four decades now so a lot of fans might feel like they know her really well but some of her former players shared with you aspects of her personality. That many people might not be familiar with. Were there any anecdotes in particular. That stood out or surprised. You you know there were. And i think we only really scratch the surface on somebody whose sole multifaceted so fascinating but one of the things i thought was really funny was neck. Oh k. had mentioned the situation where they were practising and maples pavilion at their home. Arena right before they were supposed to begin. Play in the final four and tar would prepare by like lasting music over over the speakers in maple wants them to be familiar with the idea that you're going to be in a situation where you're going to be playing in front of nineteen thousand people screaming their lungs he would do that. Enhance obviously our focus our concentrations but most importantly our communication because it ended up so that we were in arenas here each other thinking blessing his music and she usually blasts like michael jackson. Whatever it might be from the eighties nineties. And suddenly she turns over and she starts blasting who left the dogs out and all the players are kind of laughing. It's kind of awkward kind of out of character and some spontaneous and she would start dancing and it was just it was really funny. Like in the middle fact is dancing. You know in those theories when you're trying to go through four. I remember all the time. She has a sense of humor. That just doesn't always translate publicly but it's very dry and very very sarcastic and because she can be so hope and his so approachable. Her players always loved her

I got up with Big Frieda over Zoom, and she started off by explaining what it is that she loves that she adores about bounce music. I mean, I love my crowd. First and foremost, I love the culture of bounce music. I love the origin way comes from my love The people that love the music. The sound the base the boom, they're not, You know, I love everything about it. It's You know is what I know. It's what I grew up listening to is what I enjoy. It is my type of music. What do you think it is that the audience gets out of it. Like when? What do you think that when people watch you and your dancers go like what do you think they get out of it? Well, A lot of people have told me over and over that it's like a bounce revival. You know, like they some type of spirit comes within them. And they, you know, they let their self loose and they lay their hair down and they party and they have a good time. I'm so happy you said about survival. I want to play this. Take a listen. Please don't harm being faces. Either room killers all read in about a minute Walk, Walk, walk, walk up in the room maker maker becoming a man's globules. No one's reading you. That is my guest. Big freedom. Performing the title track offer latest Keep Louder, which came out earlier this year featuring I kind of pop. So Bounce revival you in this in the video for that there's bounce and there's gospel music, So let's just let's just get their facts straight here. You started out in the church right in church choir. Did. I started out Very young in church. Um, I later became a choir director and my church home at my high school. I had my own choir somewhere Many quiet around New Orleans traveled the world with a choir. So yes, started in gospel music, and then you had to make a decision right between bounce and gospel. Well, at some point, I'd be it. You know, One sound. I started to get heavier. And so the bounce music and things kind of started to take off for me. I kind of have to make a decision. Yeah, but that was that a hard call. Itwas. It was very hard. Um, you know, I talk to a few people. First. I talked to my mom and then I talked to a few people at the church. I talked to my godmother, Georgia who's in the book. Um, you know about the situation and about what was going on in my life in these transitions, and yeah, it was a hard call. And, you know, my mom always said no matter what, long as you keep God first and everything that you do, I think you'll be okay and that stuck with me and I made my decision right? You're right, because it's not just a matter of like, I don't have a lot of time. Like I have. I have to get me That's part of it. But it's also sort of a spiritual decision, you know? Yeah, it is. You know, I was tossing and turning, you know, while making the decision off, you know, going into over crossing over to bounce music, but I never lost my faith. And I never lost my hope. And I never lost my love for gospel music. Still listen to it all the time. I still you know, Go back and saying what the quiet when we have unions, so I'm still you know, I'm still connected. And And you know, the building is the is just the place and I still have church in. They must love to see you when you come in to sing with the choir again. Oh, yeah, it be like old times. You know, we'd be all happy to see each other, You know, And then I go back into a whole nother person. I'm not freedom. When I go to church, you know, it's like I go back to when I was growing up and where my roots come from, so It brings me back in the aisle. I love to be reminded of where I come from. Well, let's let's bring it back to what you said earlier about about survival. What similarities? You see between bounce and gospel? Well, um, I see a lot of singularities first. I see that, you know, is a gathering of people and then You know, there's something that come over them. You know when they're at abound. Show that something that comes over them when they're at church. I'm also still directing. I'm directing. When I was directing in church. I will open my hands and people will, you know, saying now one pointing my finger and people shaking ass is so it has a lot of similarities. Still, you know, I feel still like, feel kind of feel like the director when I'm on stage. Yeah, The The intention in the process is the same. The result is a tiny bit different. I get it. Yeah. Most most of the time for church, people falling on pews. And, uh, you know, when I'm at abound, shield they're they're falling out with their ass is My guest is my guest is big Frieda. Another thing that struck me in your book, and you mentioned this. Just that actually was how strong your relationship was with your mom. Um, I know I know your mom since past I'm really sorry for your loss, and I I could only imagine what it would have lost. That must be because you get the feeling that your mom just gave you unwavering support. And you tell this story. I was hoping you might tell about the principle. Call in home on you and your mom having to stick up for you know what he well, you know, I always had issues when they came to my hair. And what do you mean? I always wanted to wear my hair all type of ways and exotic and you know hi to the feeling and there's one particular time I had went to school with a foul. That was kind of high like Marge Simpson, You know that high of a style. And the principal was just not happy. When I walked in school. He was just very much not happy. He called my mom right away. He was fun family, and he, you know, cousin. And my mom went to the school and put him right in his place and said that the Children should be worried about their education and not worried about my child's here. So she told him just the two bit where to get off at, But she always defended me. No matter what. She was my queen. She was my rock. She was my biggest cheerleader. And when I told my mom at an early age that I knew that I was gay, she said that she already knew and that she loved me for who I am. So once I had the support of my mom Um, I didn't need approval from anybody else in the world. So my life really begin at that point off, starting to make my own decisions and feeling really finding out who I was and finding my truth. There. I don't need to tell you. There are parents who would not be a supportive right? Oh, yeah, Most definitely. I had friends who Mom was not supported. That wasn't having it that you know, they couldn't do the things that idea or they couldn't go to places I went or, you know they couldn't be themselves. You know, I don't with that growing up as well. A lot of my friends around me had issues at home that they were fighting. And they will come from me and my mom as the outlet. She was the cool, mama. She must be still with you, You know? She's my guarding an angel. She walks inside of me every day. She's in. She's still within me, and she helps to protect and make things happen for me. If you're just tuning in, my guess is Big Frieda. She's known as Queen of Bounce. Her memoir is out now in paperback. It's called God Save the Queen Diva. You've been talking a lot about bounce you've been talking about, you know, keeping going during some of these dark moments, and in the book, you talk about it particularly dark moment You get pretty candid about Hurricane Katrina. You were with your siblings when it struck. Your niece was with you. Who was just a little baby. Can you tell me a little bit about that story? You know, Katrina was really rough in life changing for all of us. You know, we had to be evacuated by boat. Um, you know, we have to cut a hole in the roof to try to get your rescues to even see us who kept flying over us and picking up neighbors, right? Um, next door to us. So we had some really trying times We slept on the bridge. We slept at the convention center for a few days. We went on a cargo plane and got dropped off at an army camp base. What? Then we slept. Yeah, there we slept at a warming campgrounds. Then we went to ST or then we went to the class Louisiana. Then we went. I went to Houston. Then I moved back to New Orleans. So my life was in a really Um, it was a roller coaster, and it was, um Roller coaster of emotions and moving and restructure in my life and finding out where I was going to live, you know, along with my family and I think often Katrina, though, because it gave people a chance to start their lives over, especially if your life was in shambles, or you needed a new start. But for me it also let me know that material. Things don't mean anything long as you could survive and have your life you can get through anything and all that other stuff can be brought again. But you can't buy your life again. And that was the most important for me with survival moments for me and my family to survive during those times, and a lot of times we take tragedies for for granted when we see things on on TV and on the news and on, you know, on the radio. But After experiencing country Noah. I took everything that I saw into account and I felt the pain of those people and what they went through and whatever catastrophic disaster death he had, But Katrina was definitely life changing for New Orleans. On. We're still recovering each day. I don't want to, in any way imply that it was good. I don't want to, in any way imply that it was Ah, anyway. Good thing. It was absolutely devastating thing that happened her Katrina, But like do you think That you'd be Where you are today if you hadn't survive something like that. Not at all. You know, even surviving it. You know, it also put The sound of bounce music even further because we were displaced all over the world, and people started to want to know what's that music? What type of music is that? Can you teach me the dances? You know we were. We were all over the world. They had a little New Orleans all over the world, And when those New Orleans people were displaced, they wanted to listen to their type of music. And it was New Orleans bounce so people in Houston and Atlanta and you know, everywhere we were man. What is that music, you know? Teach me that. Show me that. And I thought if the travel all over people started requesting me And when I got to the different clubs and in venues, it was like Michael Jackson or Prince had a ride because the people were screaming and holiday and like running up to me, like, Oh, my God, I can't believe you here, you know, but it was felt. Like a sense of home and I wanted to bring some joy into those people like that was going through some stuff and I was still trying to bring joy in my own life, so it felt good to go around and see people of New Orleans. And how they missed the culture and how they missed the music. So the music really started to spray it and got me even further. Are you cool with that? Are you cool? When when? When

Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money.

Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles.

Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right.

And I'm going to Scheffel everyday is wanting road, and I'm going to repeat tomorrow, never dies because it's gemstone JAMES BOND for crying out loud. I mean, that must be still even now a highlight just be able to, I recall, I would tell you that was a giant highlight for me, because JAMES BOND, the legacy of that the tradition of those live and let so many amazing songs came out of that movie, and the tradition of many known British offices, while. I really felt very honored to be part of that. And that is, when you first got noticed in the music industry, wasn't you had the backing vocalists for Michael Jackson's, he's, I think between IT safe in the nineteen nine you obviously, on the road with her. Yes. And people started to talk about even hem and that type of thing load of room is which I think you have Sade when all true. There wasn't. I mean there was outlandish things in tabloids that said, I was being paid two million dollars to have his baby. Very true. But yeah, you know, I think aside from getting into the semantics of it without naming names, I would just say that I came out of that tour feeling. Like I didn't sell my soul, but I came home and went right back to waiting tables. And did he know about it? Did he try and help you Jackson? I don't really know. I mean, honestly, by the end of that tour he had fired his manager. And for whatever reason I, I don't know. But I do think that karma is a ruthless teacher. And perhaps that was the karma that, that person deserved Janet Jackson's before minute lasts breeze. This. Yeah. And Oviously she is being asked as well about where is the musical legacy of Michael Jackson, lift following the recent wave relations in leaving Neverland a lotta actually which took place around the time of. That to us. So I just wonder how you fail about that documentary. And also, if you. I didn't see it. I remain comment about it. I'm sure that she's getting hit up a lot. And sure the entire family is I can only speak from my own perspective, and that, that to our changed my life in every way shape and form I didn't even own a passport and I moved from being a schoolteacher to L A, six months later, standing in front of seventy thousand people in Yokohama stadium performing with probably the biggest artists that ever lived, and my relationship Tim, with was very professional. In fact, I would say he was pretty isolated from all of us. So I chose not to watch the documentary, so I don't really have a comment. Do you know that you'll mentioned to that by one of the victims now? So Chuck, he who who's one of the alleges over you put it. He, he said that you were that Michael Jackson would show him pictures of you to sort of try and CEO. See you attracted to women, you say, oh, well, that's weird. Yeah. Yeah. Of course you have what? Surprised that someone wasn't attracted to me. What getting carry on. You. Incredible people on threads contributions from Stevie nicks here. We spike about Keith great shits now. Eric obviously someone you have a rail past with staying gems tire. What's it like to work with some of these legends? Well, I grew up in a really small town. I grew up holding all these people's albums, and studying them and it's a weird thing like I go from, from relationships, like I've known Stevie now for twenty years, and she is the dearest of friends, but at the same time, she's also that person in the you know, the ballet slippers on the cover of Fleetwood MAC and rumors and, and she opens her mouth, and she has the voice that really informed me about what I wanted to do with my life..

"What other breath you can say you're not answering the question because I didn't get to finish my phrase. How can you say there's no hard evidence proving their stories true? But apparently, there's enough evidence proving their stories falls. There's what what no, okay. Here's the problem. We're running out of time. So I wanna play one quo for you before we get cut off. All right. This is Toya Toyota. The toy Jackson. I must tell you that this is very difficult for me. Michael is my brother. I love him great deal. But I cannot and I will not be a salad collaborator of his crimes against small innocent. Children. And if I remain silent. That means that I feel the humiliation at these children filling, and I think it's very wrong. I have seen checks payable to the parents of these children. And I don't know if these children were apparently brought. Parents by mice will or not. But I have seen these tests. And I've seen these checks through my mother. She showed me these checks said Michael bring to these children, and it's a great amount. And I'm not speaking pennies, the some are very very large amount. And this is my first time talking about it. And I never wanted to speak about it. I never wanted to say anything about it. But I think it's sad because I am a big to myself. And I know what it feels like and these kids are going to be scarred for the rest of their life. And I don't wanna see anymore in. It's at small children being affected this way. I love Michael berry dearly. But I feel even more sorry for these children because they don't have a life anymore. Michael Jackson, la- Toya Jackson will gray. Okay. Yes. I have two points one. I want to answer your question you said before and I didn't get chance to answer. There is evidence. That was what I was saying. There is evidence to prove that he is that that was not the case the evidence that they used to try to prove that he was a pedophile was actually kid be used to prove that possibly he's a heterosexual male. That was my point second off. Do you have you done? Do you know what's going on the Toyota? She's come out. And I know she's come out and said that she takes that back. Have you looked at other interviews other claims she has made around this time as well. If you. Any of that? It sound or other interviews like this is a credible person credible source does she made a lot of lies and during that time, and as as we came to find out she had lived in the okay, we know how what you're talking about how they were Jehovah's Witness. What point did that me because Jackson was completely repressed? Completely sheltered lived in that house her whole life until she met this man, and he up -ducted her from the family, and basically had her was talking peace for him. And they literally had object her back. That is the story. I mean that is what happened, and that's not just some tabloid story. That's what happened. So it's not really a credible clip at all. And the fact that you let it go on for so long kind of annoying, quite honestly, but go ahead. What? Okay. Well, we're running out of time. I'm sorry. You are noise by the clip that his sister. And come out to say several. I'm sure I'm sure we could find clips of his nieces and nephews in find some. Researched. You haven't researched any of the other side giving captain open mind whatsoever. That you didn't know any of the information is a little frustrated made me watch the documentary. And I knew all the information in the documentary without having to sit there and subject myself to like child porn made up child porn stories. Like, Jan read. It's the pedophile. Doozy. All right. Well, we're running out of time. Thank you for. Yes. And it was not child pornography. I think that's offensive for you to say that because this was a story about kids. No, it wasn't the film was child pornography. I mean. Stories of child pornography that more than likely didn't happen..

"No, this is at the end of the documentary film. Do you really think that they haven't been getting attacked by Michael Jackson defenders? No. But I just find it interesting that they would use that as times as a ploy to be like, oh, don't criticize us because we already getting death threats and were victims. Basically what you're saying when you're already into the material that's coming out. I mean, it's kind of a manipulative approach. I found the whole film, quite honestly, extremely emotionally manipulative. I didn't understand why they needed to get into the suicide of Wade Robson's father except manipulated into Seaney. Like, it was Michael Jackson's fall because the grandmother said, oh, Michael wanted joy to move and abandoned his father. I mean, she Belaid only said that. And I quite honestly don't believe that story. And if he did want her to move, I mean, I feel like there's more to the story just seemed very sketchy seems like a lot of information is being left out in the situation. You're talking about that you're talking about, you know, nieces and nephews of Michael you're talking about all this stuff Oprah in her past. I mean, we're talking about what happened in bed with these boys and Michael debit. I mean, you don't think like what we were talking about before. If there's gonna be a film about a situation, and they're gonna label it a jockey mentoring. This is about their story journalistic responsibility to to research the entire situation and not just ten in on just these these certain allegations, right? These stories what other documentary, especially dealing with this subject matter only, does that doesn't have on an expert opinion doesn't have on friends. Corroborating the situation that aren't part of the family that could that could gain financially from this situation. I've never seen a documentary because that clay. James stuff at this level. Now the difference. Yeah. The difference in this one is person is dead. Different as the stories being told are something that happened at night with two people in the room. I mean, if we were doing a documentary on the career, Michael Jackson, of course, he had concerts. He put out outcomes everyone heard this music. But there have been documentaries about two people alone at night, and they're being alleged situations of sexual assault and they've been done much better than this. What was like the one on Netflix about that woman? That was abducted. Oh, I got him out remembering any name. But that was about that use and between those two no one else saw and their family didn't know until leader. Absolutely not that was about kidnapping that was about a story that was that guy kidnapped or abducted in plain sight. I believe is what you're talking about talking about in this person, the guy the neighbor had a release napping. Story so different. He also still sexually abused her in private before he kidnapped her. And anyway, the the point is is that documentary was seemed to me like an actual documentary. It became across to me it I believe that this one unfortunately felt really emotionally manipulative so really one-sided excluded. A lot of information seemed very, you know, it seemed like very specific reasons why excluded certain information, there's a lot of leaks, and the there's just a lot of loopholes in the story inconsistencies, and it doesn't seem like people wanna point those out because Oprah endorsed it. And each endorsed it and Sundance endorsed it. That's what seems to people who are defending Michael Jackson with the Duchesne in plain sight in plain sight. There was a relationship. The parents had with the neighbor there is a relationship the neighborhood with the siblings. There There was the. was the kidnapping. There was the return. There was the investigation. So there were. So there are a lot of people involved in those stories and a lot of people that talk to we are talking in this documentary. It's about Wade story and James's story. So when it comes to. Again. There was nobody else around ever in these situations that weren't related to these two individuals. They like I said they talked about situations where other people were there. Why couldn't they get any of those people to do this? Kokin you're talking about why they tried to get Jordi Chandler involved in this documentary..
"michael jackson" Discussed on The Next Best Thing
"He was very much under some of Sony and many other people, but sorry, you you'd ask the question I'm getting with Jordi Chandler. Okay. So the first reports of Jackson having sleepovers the young boys came in Rolling Stone back in ninety two the thirteen year old boys. Father said said privately his son told him that Jackson had been molesting him repeatedly Jordi tolls. A psychiatrist the Jackson had quote, cuddled him and open mouth kissed him. There is no dispute that like I said at eight thirty four Michael slept with Geordie thirteen more than thirty nights in a row. Oh, same bed at the invariably houses. Now, again, you've you said that because of his upbringing, and because of his position that you know, what's weird to us may not be weird to him. Okay. Fine. But doesn't that kind of peculiar behavior? If you're going to say that that weirdness who it may be normal for someone like Michael Jackson, perhaps the sexual acts might of seemed normal. Michael jackson. Well, anything involving the Jordi Chandler case is really hard to take seriously, unfortunately, because we did find out that Evan Chandler was lying for money that he had gone to Michael Jackson before he had alleged. All this had happened to his son had probably it's I mean, I don't know the full specifics of the situation, but there are accounts of him going. Evan Chandler co wrote the movie men in tights with Mel Brooks and wanted to make another movie and was trying to get Michael Jackson to sell to fund this movie and Michael Jackson. Would it? So story is that Evan Chandler, basically. His father Georgy Chandler's father. Okay. Okay. So there's that now let's hear what Michael Jackson's made had to say about this specific situation. And she was there. Did you it anytime? See Michael Jackson, molest, Jordan Chandler. I saw some stuff that I didn't think was appropriate with Mr. Jackson Jordy. What sort of things did you say with with Jordan Chandler Michael kissing on him? Michaels hands very close to George's crotch. It was terrible to see. K? So she's making that up. Possibly. I mean, quite possibly. I mean that is in the realm of possibility with Michael Jackson. History is Jordi Geordies father. Wade Robson interview done it was after all these allegations came up. I mean once that happened. Michael Jackson was a target for anyone who wanted to claim. They had a story about him in Jordy Chandler guy. Like I was talking about. I like I didn't wanna say his name, but he wrote a whole novel claiming this was exposed story of Michael Jackson, Jordi Chamba. So people were coming out of the woodwork to just get their fangs in the story. Whether they're I mean, much like the OJ Simpson trial. I mean, this was very much the same similar situation in that sense. Not since this interview. This interview was done last February. So she had not worked for him for a very long time. She had no reach. She's not suing the estate, so she had no reason to come forth for money. If anything it's just gonna put her in the crosshairs of Michael Jackson fanatics, who you know are gonna come at her for this. I don't. That narrative has been a w- it's been on. I get death threats for doing this radio show. They get death rates. No. I'm sure that no one gets a death threats. But I'm just saying that's interesting that they made a big deal about that both off in the film, and in the interview with Oprah that again, the there seem to be quite an objective approach taken to this quote, unquote documentary..

"They both even still say that they you know, the reason they met Michael at least one of them. Wade was because he won a contest and the prize was to meet Michael he loves Michael he looks was like a God figure. I mean, I don't see that. They were just sitting waiting in the wings for a good time to come out and say these allegations if they weren't true James safety looks tortured by the stuff. I don't think they were waiting for this. I think they both were in desperate financial situations. Like, they had no other choice, but to play this card like we'd Robson. He was a judge dancing. America. Well, wait Rops. You know, there's a lot of accounts from people in the industry say Wade Robson his burnt a lot of bridges. There's lots of stories, you know, I don't know if you even know about how he told everyone that he was choreographing the circus Soleil Michael show and did not get the job through the Michael Jackson state and felt jilted by the Michael Jackson estate. He was supposed to direct step up three or four whatever and had a complete meltdown. He talks to me blames Michael Jackson. He says that's because of the abuse that everything happened, but counts from people who've worked with him in the industry is that he is very era that person, and he's a very duplicitous person. He's an opportunist. This is what brandy Jack brand Jackson said who was with him intimately for nine years off and on until he cheated on her with Britney Spears as well as Princess wife O N, he met his current wife around that time to we'll no one knows who brandy Jackson is in all of his characters as an Asian stuff has absolutely nothing to do with. What may or may not have happened in bed between Wade Robson in Michael Jackson, nothing? I mean, you know, he could be the worst piece of shit ever. Doesn't mean. Michael Jackson, didn't inappropriately touch him perhaps less. I it's just interesting. It's interesting not to say that people like that like somebody like that couldn't have been abused. When they. Were child that is not what I'm saying. I'm just saying this time line doesn't really add up for some people. That's all I'm saying people have researched and looked into it. And the time line of why he decided to take out the lawsuit. Why do you why this documentaries coming out as well is interesting to, you know, some people pointed the interesting facts that the Harvey Weinstein trial was supposed to happen week leaving ever land was released an Oprah Winfrey. As we all hope. Most of us have researched Noverre, well is best friends with Harvey Weinstein or or was. Has nothing Harvey Winton has nothing to do with this. Okay. I would just wanna read one thing. For some people. It does with the word it away from this white perpetrator unto the most one of the most powerful black perpetrator in the birth of one of the most powerful black men in the world. Black interesting. I that I don't think there's anything to do with. I don't think Oprah has always Oprah. Unfortunately in the past has not always been open on the right side of history and other situations. Well, diets colored? No. I mean, she well get into that. That's off so quickly with both Robson and safe check. They previously testified under oath the Jackson, never touched them. But in the there's an article that says, there's a good reason to believe they're telling the truth now Ron zone and a prosecutor in the two thousand and five trial who has tried many sex abuse cases, told the journalist that he understood why Wade Robson and Jimmy safe Joe came out when they did instead of quote when we needed them in quote, especially for male victims,.

"Or or that they just are denying the situation or that they're dealing with their own domestic abuse. And just don't want to just don't wanna admit it. The fact of matter is Michael Jackson fans have been researching his life since he was alive since with fine tooth comb to do with what happened under the sheets when at night. Well, what has to do with that is the fact that there's testimony from seemingly thousands of individuals under those sheep at different times. I mean, they talk in the film about parties with Jordi Chandler mccully Kokin they've given. I mean joy Chandler, if we're getting into his case, he would not officially testify in a criminal trial against Michael checks 'cause he did not agree with his father. I mean, he came out and said that so I mean to stay, you know, to claim him as someone who still hasn't had Justice. Ford with the idea. So did weighed in James. What they testified on behalf of Michael Jackson. No. But one thing is joy Chandler would not testify in nineteen ninety two or nineteen Ninety-three in that case that was is civil lawsuit that got settled he would not they did not open a criminal lawsuit. And the one of the reasons they did not pursue is one the insurance company paid pay them off. Also, the fact of matter is they couldn't do it criminal trial because joy Chandler would not testify against Michael Jackson. So to keep him on the list of people who haven't had Justice against Michael Jackson's crimes is unfair. Because George handler. I would assume even now is an adult would not say that Michael Jackson sexually molested him. Because he said that in the past. There's new dispute that at age thirty four Michael Jackson slept more than thirty nights in a row with the thirteen year old Jordi Chandler at the boy's house with his mother present also at his dad's house and at Neverland. Now does that normal works? No dispute as we all know that Michael Jackson's slept in beds with children of both sexes, and what girls girls girls Wade ropes? In sister admits this on documentary he never slept in the same bed with Michael Jackson yesterday. Did brandy Jackson. Michael Jackson's niece, ju-, search and YouTube and look at interviews. Brandy Jackson admits to sleeping in the same bed as Michael Jackson. This was not a situation where he was learning. Young boys into his bed to molest them and groom them and take advantage of them. Michael Jackson, friends were children because he wanted to have pillow fights and watch..

"Way sex was performed the fear and threats of what would befall them if they ever told anyone Jackson had done their dismissals by Jackson, followed a similar pattern to as puberty approach Robson and safe trick say in the documentary they were abruptly thrown to the curb and replaced with a new younger kids. So we're you move like tearing their personal stories did you removed by those at all. Well, like I said before seeing the documentary today, I had heard the accounts of what their personal stories were. I basically known the details. So I hadn't heard any new facts I wanted to give the benefits out to hear it from them. Even though I heard parts of it from YouTube clips and also just hear it in context of how the film was made it it did not necessarily make me feel anything new about the situation. If that's what your question is. Well, unfortunately, okay. So when you take out the this the details of the situation, the what I found most moving about the documentary more than anything was simply James safe. Chuck seeing him describe the stuff that happened and seeing him talk about it. He looked truly pained and saddened by the whole thing. So it wasn't so much of the saucy details shirt. Yeah. Yeah. No. I mean, his body language his eyes. I can definitely see how you can walk away from that from that film and feel convinced given his how how he tells the story. I I understand what you're saying there to your point before about the article in Vanity Fair, and I don't know if that's the same author who who's done, I think there was one article that was like ten undeniable facts about Michael Jackson, I and I have to say probably Michael Jackson's family, and a lot of people who, you know, have been defending Michael Jackson would not agree with her account of a lot of situations, which is just funny and kind of perfect because it's called tin, undeniable facts, but go ahead the specifics as far as exactly what the sexual abuse was happening. There is a. A book that was written. And I don't even want to say the name of the author because he's a pedophile doozy. And it is basically a fan fiction novel written about Jordi Chandler and Michael Jackson, and the Chambal family has come out since saying that they had nothing to do with it or Chandler had nothing to do with it that this is not real Michael Jackson, actually, sued the sky and won a case of millions of dollars for slander libel. Or, you know, basically for the lies in the book and this book, it seems as though a lot of people have suggested has been the test piece or the basis of a lot of stories that have come out later. Mainly Wade Robson and especially James safe. Chuck people have linked allot of specific details about James safe Chuck story to specific details for penned in this novel. So it's interesting. I mean, a lot of people would say this is a story that has been written about Mike. Jackson, a long time ago, right after he acclaimed some of the most power that any man has ever claimed have it says has ever claimed and not to I I hate bring race into this. But unfortunately, it is he is one of the most powerful black men in our times in our culture. And that does have a point here. A lot of people say that he has been targeted by the powers that be the one percenters. However, you wanna call it. Some people would even label people like David Geffen and other huge executives. Maybe even Tommy Mottola whoever. Have targeted. Michael Jackson for very very long time. I mean, this is somebody who's had the top video of all time, Billie. Jean and could not get a played on MTV on the sole purpose that he was African American. Okay. First of all when MTV was verse starting for the first few years..

"I wanna make an amazing for me you for Cirque. And of course, Michael. So that was in two thousand eleven months before he figured out that he was abused. He's praising Michael Jackson once again, and he also knew Jackson had in the state. So he's lying, and he's sounds like he's desperate. He didn't get the job. And that's what the theme is like he he's he's running around Hollywood trying trying to find work. And when you when you dig into that all a lot of a lot of Hollywood came for him. When he when he when he made these allegations saying that you kinda just burnt bridges in this industry, and you're going broke. And it's just it's it's really bad. I didn't want to get into the Gaza side of it. But that's a lot of his peers are saying that this is the last point contention man before we move on James, save check. But it was a huge one in the fact that they didn't put this in the documentary. Let's we know exactly what the motive for that documentary was in two thousand eleven around that same time he sold some of his Michael Jackson memorabilia months before he realized is abuse was again. So you remember that smooth criminal hat that they went on about in the documentary. He's so he sold that on a website called joins actions auctions. Yeah. He so that six twenty five thousand eleven and ten twenty one two thousand eleven he sold he sold Michael Jackson, bad era gloves. So these laws, and they're gonna be on the screen for you ought to watch them. For you to see him on you to he sold those both of those items months before he realizes abuse. And it was a big shift storm on Twitter, the investigation website and jillions auctions actually has a Twitter account, and they they were being asked about this. And they responded they said Wade consigned his collection to us directly. He was the person we paid when we sold his collection. He needed the money. Where there is direct. But they went on to say wait asked to remain anonymous and said that he did not want anyone to know that it was him selling the items in two thousand eleven but we do not agree to that and listed as the Wade Robson collection. He consigned multiple items in one of those to sell all items of his head value..

And then you have the movable, and I would argue there's there's probably no other artists who is as important to where popular music currently is than Michael Jackson. You can hear him actually, sampled and other people's music. You can hear other artists who've built entire careers. Artists you probably wouldn't even have if there was no Michael Jackson.

How we responded like the dancing that we do is in some ways many ways, Michael Jackson dance. She. So I'm thinking about all of this as I am dragging myself through the winter weather to go watch this movie, that's a lot to carry with you into a screening movie theater, your childhood, all American culture. That's not nothing. No. It's not nothing. But it's weird though, because I carry it with me all the time the reason that it was so heavy, and I think the reason that a lot of people are experiencing this heaviness in this dread about this movie is like I'm carrying around baggage. I didn't even know I had. And then all of a sudden, it feels like baggage, you know, it feels like this thing you've been lugging around with you all these years this love of Michael Jackson, and now like this rocket ship to bliss that is not an easy thing to be willing to let go of talk me through this. You have to sit down and walked this movie. Yeah. Where did you watch? It. The first time I watched it. I watched in an office. It was basically a conference room at HBO. They showed me the movie, I was alone in a. Nice little corner conference room with the TV. And you know, it was me, and my notepad and all my baggage. And it was funny because I watched it by myself. And I realized once I was there in the door was closed in. This thing was starting like, I didn't wanna be there. I just I looked around. And I'm like, I don't wanna do this. I don't want to do it. But you know, I'm fashionable. What does it look like if I open the door and ask him, we can stop we stop. But the ride at our left the bay. So I stayed and I watched the whole thing off four hours. And what's the first thing that you notice about the film? Oh my God. It's so quiet. It's really quite. I think when I was with them. He was happy. He was at the peak of his creativity onions at the peak of his success. So a lot of string music, but what you really are aware of is just that you're gonna hear two people and the people in their lives talk about their relationship. The Michael Jackson was already larger than life. And then he likes you. And who are these people one of them is Wade Robson white one dancing competition. Wake on I and not Intrepidity Robson met. Michael Jackson as Michael Jackson of personal strutted to like Markle. Lush? Started coughing the moose in that same stuff. Did I would say the best one I ever seen in my life. Talking about like a like a six year old kid. Well. Style. Kief it for forty Hefei rolled Dory. He was good. And the other is James safe job. Began as a child actor. He was cast in a Michael Jackson commercial Jackson. And that's how they meant looking for me. I was prepared for this movie to begin with the allegations. I was prepared for them to just be like, here's a Michael Jackson did. But that's not really how it goes. He went into the closet..

"And I felt so uncomfortable at the end of the second Bart or they're showing Wade doing some choreography, you know, just they showed there are several moments throughout the film showing him doing arrogancy at various points in his career. But there's one that's I guess pretty recent. And you're watching him, and it's like he couldn't escape Michael Jackson, even if he tried it is central to his actual work to the thing that he loves it's it's there, and that's not going to go away unless he goes, and like becomes like a long distance trucker, you know, it's just it's not gonna it's not gonna change and the sort of ongoing horror of knowing that a person who. Abused? You allegedly is also somehow central to your creative practices that that's horrific. I found that it he didn't say anything about that. But it just scream very loudly to me, it was really really difficult. I wanna talk briefly about something that comes up in the second part of the film, which is this doesn't come completely out of thin air. There are prior lawsuits criminal charges against Michael Jackson. So in nineteen Ninety-three, there is a civil suit, perhaps, it's complicated. There was a criminal investigation. And at the same time, the family of the boy at the center of this sued than a civil suit and Michael Jackson paid a very large settlement he paid. Ultimately, it was over twenty million dollars to the family and to the lawyers. And then the the criminal investigation was dropped. It got pretty far I got to a grand jury, but it was never prosecuted and then two thousand five there are. Actual criminal. Yes. He's charged with a whole bunch of different with the different young. Boy. Yes that and not boy was in the Martin shared documentary. He was seen a couple years prior to that. And I think actually the documentary was sort of what prompted the second. So the same ally. Prosecutor I believe both times is that correct? Santa Barbara Santa Barbara excuse me spoken like a true Yankee, it's all LA to me. But but yes, so the first time they ultimately do not indict him than this two thousand three Martin Bashir documentary comes out that includes Michael Jackson talking about sleeping in bed with children and explaining it, as, you know, innocent sleepovers, and that as far as I understand it sort of once again, peaked the interest of the district attorney who then opened a much wider investigation into Michael Jackson, which resulted in these charges would try angelie, Anna trial. He was acquitted on chargers right in the comes out. And he's dancing on the roof of his car and doves a really, yeah..

"And Ryan white whom Jackson befriended and supported in his final years battling aids. Yes. Michael Jackson, never had sex with a young boy who had aids. Michael Jackson didn't sexually abuse Bela Farkas who I looked into this. He apparently met twice one while Bella was in a hospital, and then two years later for what appears to be a news reports or hard to come by a day or part of a day when Michael Jackson was playing Budapest the main charge as always is that Robson once said that Michael Jackson didn't abuse him testified under oath, in fact, and then changed his story when the Jackson estate turned him down for a job. Now, all of those things could have happened. In fact, they all do happen. Wade Robson said that that statement of a time line said he didn't abuse me. I testified in abused me. I applied for the shop. I was turned down for this job. It's choreographer it all happened. But also that Michael Jackson abused him. I have to tell you. I wasn't surprised at the weakness of the argument. Have to admit a pretty low opinion of Forbes. It is die. See editorial is a Fox News of the Daily Mail. It's not not Breitbart or celebrities, Ingo dot biz or whatever. But there there does seem to be very little quality control over there. And that inkling whom it's in Forbes aligned with another feeling that I was constantly having as I evaluated. The arguments of the Michael Jackson defenders they felt like the online impassioned ramblings of the nine eleven truth. Here's the unhinged Hillary as a sex trafficker types or the peak oil crowd. If you're a member them their screens flash. And blink their clip our greats their sentences or often on grammatical their YouTube videos, go on forever. Their Twitter handles have four mo- in them. So on the one hand I say to myself you are being a snob. Maybe a perfectly composed argument snob. And you know, it's sometimes true that good arguments. Come in shabby packages on the other hand, it's like all those miracle cure. Available only by Mailer in this exclusive TV offer. I mean it really worked..

"The wrongly convicted are entitled to money from the state users of defective products. Get money from companies and people discriminated against in the workplace get money from their employers or would be employers, by the way, the main purveyors of this argument that save Chuck and rob center in it for the money or the lawyers for the Michael Jackson estate now. State is a fancy word for Michael Jackson's big pile of money, and we all know that the lawyers motivation is that they're in it in order to protect the pile of money. Now that fact itself by itself doesn't discredit the lawyer's arguments or the executives arguments, but we know that we accept it. And we should price it in as it were. So if we believe the lawyer's arguments than we are believing the argument of people being paid to argue the fact that you can't believe the arguments of people who are in it for the pay set with that one. So as I said, the main purveyors of the Michael Jackson didn't do it line or the lawyers. Well, maybe in the upscale precincts of media where I like to dwell, but in fact, for every white shoot lawyer shooing away the suggestion that Michael Jackson was a monster. There are tens hundreds of thousands of online enthusiasts eager to defend their idea of a hero. In some cases. These people. Are related to the Jackson family like tash Jackson. Son of Tito. Here's the thing. Wade Robson was the first defense witness on the stand you have my uncle molested inverse seven years he put him on the stand as his first witness. I mean, that's the dumbest thing you could possibly do in front of all those sheriffs. And all those people I'd say the dumbest thing for a non child molester. Who was cleared of rape at trial is to continue sleeping in bed with little boys. Here's Taj Jackson on Sky News. I can tell you. I've been around people where I've just gotten that energy. And it's like, it's an energy that you're like, that's a bad person. I'll stay away from. And I think if I ever felt that way about my uncle just one hint of it. I wouldn't be here defending them. I wouldn't. I'm not a hint now, I have no reason to believe that Taj Jackson's motives are anything but sincere sincerely believing that his dead is innocent. But it must be said to the extent that his father, Tito or him. He is. Recording artists to to the extent that they have a public interest in their careers. It is certainly due to their association with Michael Jackson with beloved musical superstar. Michael Jackson once that association becomes with revile child molester. Michael Jackson, they're earning potential plummet to it doesn't disqualify them for making an argument, but it informs the argument just as they say Robson supposed financial motivation informs their argument. There was a prominent print piece that defended Michael Jackson. It was cited in slate and other places as raising serious questions about the integrity of leaving Neverland writing in Forbes, Joe Vogel argues, quote, as someone who has done an enormous amount of research on the artist interviewed many people who were close to him and been granted access to a lot of private information. My assessment is that the evidence simply does not point to Michael Jackson's guilt now Vogel who hadn't seen the documentary when he wrote the at four mentioned sentence has also taken to Twitter to advance his argument and to re tweet what he believes are compelling. Fences. He's frequently quoting people who knew Michael Jackson and saw him with children at the time. Who said they never ever thought that Michael Jackson would in any way harm a child. In other words, he's quoting people who if they're wrong countenance child-molestation, that's a motivation there. He also focuses very much on the dynamic that this is a black man accused and the public if they believe in leaving Neverland are believing white accusers. Here's a quote from the Forbes article, it's no accident that one of Jackson's favorite books and movies was to kill a Mockingbird a story about a black, man. Tom Robinson, destroyed by false allegations that could be your favorite book, and you also could have abused little boys. This is in fact, what I believe happened Vogel writes, dozens of individuals who have spent time with Jackson as kids continued to a certain nothing sexual ever happened. This includes hundreds of sick and terminally ill children such as Bela Farkas for whom Jackson paid for life. Saving liver transplant.

"And how we talk a lot about believing victims, and which we should we should believe victims. But then the question becomes when do we believe victims? And is that enough because Wade Robson seems to have been a victim. And you believed him the first time when he said Michael Jackson didn't molest him. And now you believe in the second time when he says he did. And it shows me how complicated that idea is. And how imperfect frankly yet in the first time he was under oath wrote in some ways that should be more believable. He was under penalty of perjury is an illegal setting when he lied that time. I think victimhood is is very complicated state to be in and causes you to do the haven all sorts of ways that might be unpredictable, and it is complicated. But it's it's one of these things where it's like. Who do we believe when do we believe them when is it enough? And when is it enough to clear out the smoke, you raise this really interesting point, which is true. Which is the Jackson estate is not part of this. This is really a four hour not monologue. But almost from the victims, and as a journalist, I've really complicated feelings about that. Because I do think it's unfair to not get response from the people you're accusing of something. But at the same time having watched the documentary, I can also see how it's the only way to elevate their voices as loud as Michael Jackson's voice. It's not journalistic. But at the same time, I wonder if people would see the victims if it weren't for something like this. I mean, the truth is Wade Robson came out years ago and said Michael Jackson molested me. No one really paid attention. He I mean, I remember seeing that at the time, and because I'd seen him testify the other way, I was like what is this about? I can't really tell what this is about. And it seems barely make a ripple. And and nobody changed really the way they thought about Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson didn't get stopped playing on the radio. People didn't stop playing them at their weddings. Nothing happened. I do think this documentary will have much more of an impact because you hear his story at length an isolated. I mean, the state says that Wade Robson is after money both of these men are well, and there's there's, you know, a plausible case to be made at there's there's there's enough evidence of people seeking money for Michael Jackson around these accusations. Right that it is possible to make that argument gets back to the idea of money, and how it just complicates the narrative. These folks maybe after money, but this may also be true. The Doug Marie leaves out a lot. It leaves out a lot. Of the things that happened at the trial. It's somewhat misleading at one point at six. It seems to imply the MacAulay Culkin testified before Wade Robson. And then Wade Robson came on the stand after MacAulay Culkin. But that's not what happened. I was there. The the prosecution rested the defense called it's first witness its first witness was Wade Robson to take the stand. He was the key witness. He was the all star witness for the defense. And I part of me wondered why did the documentary tied to imply that MacAulay Kokin and taking the stand. I and Wade Robson only came after was that to try to sort of soften what he'd done at the trial. He also in the in the documentary. They don't really have in grabble very much with his false testimony at that trial. There's a sentence where he says I wish I'd been in a place where I've been able to give Justice together in our visa the accuser. And all I thought was well, gosh, you know, governor visa might have deserved a little more than that. And I I'm not sure in the documentary for my taste. There was enough rap lane with that. Have you been able to listen to any Michael Jackson music since watching the documentary? I've heard it at grocery stores, and it makes me really uncomfortable..

"This trial was about a horrific crime. Michael Jackson was accused of molesting a thirteen year old boy holding his family hostage. But sets updates were an especially inciteful version of a lot of the coverage back then full of humor. He introduced readers to super fans outside the courthouse and wisecracking journalists inside it he always started by revealing what Michael's armband looked like that day. Portly mean? And how young I was done by think partly the times, and and partly the facts on the ground. I I don't know that I would breathing it now, I'm like, what are you doing cracking jokes? Like, what are you doing? Readers love this by this was very successful. This was like very cliquey clicky cliquey and lots and lots of emails about how great it was when I took a pause people like go back. Go back. Really now. I'm like, wow. That's what people wanted HBO's new documentary leaving Neverland is going to test. Whether this is the story people still want, it's filled with detailed allegations of more abuse. Okay. So when you heard that this documentary leaving Neverland was coming out. What did you think when I heard it was Wade Robson's specifically talking about being molested by Michael Jackson? The first thing I thought about was sitting in a courtroom in watching. Wade Robson say to me and many other people that he had not been listed by Michael Jackson. He seemed very believable when he denied any. This has happened had happened when I watched in the courtroom so just eager to see his manner and see you this guy was who I saw when he was twenty two. And now, you know, he's in his late thirties. I think was there a moment where you're like, I believe what he's saying watching documentary. Absolutely. And it didn't take long. It didn't take long the way he talked the way he described things was extremely believable and credible. And then watching the James save Chuck the other person who's in the documentary corroborate a lot of the same stories that the same things that Michael Jackson had done very believably yard believe him. One hundred percent. I have no doubt that he's telling the truth to me. It was all the details. It was like the fact that James Chuck takes out a box of jewelry that Michael Jackson gave him. And it was each of them talking about all of the places the abuse happened like this room had lock. Wchs and this room had bells. And this is how we practiced not get caught the that James to save taking out the box of jewelry and his hands shaking as he displayed each ring that Michael Jackson seemingly gave him for sex acts. That was the most powerful moment in documentary for me and just made it utterly credible..

"Before we get started. We're talking about the new Michael Jackson documentary on today's show. That means we're gonna be talking about child sexual abuse. Nothing graphic. But I wanted to give you a heads up. One of the most popular thing. Seth Stevenson ever wrote for slate or these dispatches from the Michael Jackson trial. So when the trial was announced there was a lot of media interest, of course, incoming trial. Everyone thought it was going to be a circus.

You know, I'll tell you run just when you think you've seen everything with regard to Michael Jackson. He pulls another stunt shows up in his pajama bottoms in court. I'm not quite sure how well that went over with the judge. And and that's how I pitched it. That's late. My editor's like I want to go out here and cover this trial because it's going to be hugely entertaining. And so I went out to Santa Maria where the courthouse was and the Neverland district in two thousand five I stayed in like, the one these hotel, you know, in this small town. Eight of the Jack in the box. And I went to the trial every day, and I would walk through these throngs of Michael Jackson fans outside the courthouse. And then I covered it. And I was in the room every day, you know, sitting about ten feet away from Michael Jackson at the defense stable, and it was a circus in some sense because there was so much media there, and everyone was doing their hits on TV and the fans are chanting things and waving signs and Michael Jackson every time he shows up..
