A video clipped from a VHS that was shot on March 1,1996 when Michael Jackson was 37 has surfaced.
He was being interviewed by lawyers about the child sex abuse allegations. The video is being released amid the anticipation of an upcoming documentary about Wade Robson and James Safechuck who claimed that Jackson molested them at his neverland ranch. In the new video, Jackson is being asked about his relationship with Macaulay Culkin, Jordan Chandler and Brett Barnes. Some news outlets claim that Jackson's behavior in the video was odd, but it is hard to read what Mike was thinking. I will say that he seemed to be trying to laugh off the allegations so he may have come off like he was laughing at the situation. Towards the end of the video Mike's tone changed when he said, "I'm a black American man and I'm proud of it, and I'm honored of it...The bleach skin rumor is a rumor, I don't bleach my skin; I'm not gay...Don't judge a person unless you have spoken to them one on one – which is true."
Jackson went on to explain that he surrounded himself with kids because Jesus said to love children and be like children. Jackson tried to explain that in his believe system, Jesus always surrounded himself with children and that he was taught to try to be like Jesus. To this day Macaulay Culkin and Aussie Brett have denied that Mike molested them. None of the alleged victims gave the director their blessing to work on the documentary. Check out the video below.
