Jackson Doc at Sundance

There’s been lots of buzz about Michael Jackson.  First was news of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, a stage musical based on his life which will debut at the Nederlander Theatre in Chicago on October 29th.  Then there’s the new documentary which premiered at Sundance.  Leaving Neverland clocks in at four hours and shines a light on the accusations of Jackson sexually abusing young boys.  There are two main subjects.  James Safechuck says that Jackson often gave him jewelry in return for “engaging in sexual acts” – one of which was a wedding ring he was given during a “mock wedding”!  Choreographer Wade Robson says that Jackson once told him, “You and I were brought together by God” – and then tried to anally penetrate him when he was 14!  Striking back, the Jackson camp points out that both Robson and Safechuck previously testified that Michael never did anything inappropriate.  Since then, both filed unsuccessful lawsuits against the estate.  Oh, did I mention that Jackson allegedly called semen “duck butter”?  Based on that alone, I’m calling this a “must see”.  Thank God HBO will air it later this year.
