Having been a fan of Michael Jackson all my life I, like many others were anticipating this program since it was announced. Martin Bashir who was known for his famous interview with Diana followed Michael Jackson around for 8 months. This documentary was the result.
The last time that Michael had participated in such a detailed show was nearly 10 years ago with Oprah Winfrey. In this new one off special Michael tell's about his outrageous lifestyle and for the first time ever the world would get a glimpse of the Jackson children.
One of the most shocking aspects of this documentary was Michael's relationship with a 12 year old cancer sufferer and his admitting to sharing his bed with other children. Since that and other certain other things were revealed (including why his 3 children dont live with there mothers) there hasnt been a day where the press werent digging into michael Jackson's life and making it a living hell. So what, he let's kid's sleep over?! It's the king of pop for crying out loud!
Martin Bashir had deeply upset Jackson during the course of the interview but it still revealed the truth: That Michael Jackson is just a kid at heart.
He's not pedophile and he isnt trying to be something he isnt. He's jut a gifted entertainer with a child's heart.
I do believe that every effort was made to produce an honest portrayal of Michael, but it was some how sabotaged by the voice over's to make the public think of Michael as a negative aspect.
