What a better way to spend Easter than having a sit down interview with the Reverend Jesse Jackson to shout out to the world that you will be vindicated. That’s just what Michael Jackson did.
“I gain strength from the fact that I know I am innocent. None of these stories are true,” Jackson told the Rev. Jesse Jackson (news – web sites) during an hourlong interview broadcast live over the Internet on Sunday morning. The entertainer said he believes he is the victim of a conspiracy, although he declined to elaborate, citing the court-imposed gag order that prevents him from discussing the ongoing trial in detail.
“I just want to say to fans in every corner of the Earth, every nationality, every race, every language, I love you from the bottom of my heart,” Jackson said toward the end of the interview. “I would love your prayers and your goodwill, and please be patient and be with me and believe in me because I am completely, completely innocent. But please know a lot of conspiracy is going on as we speak.”
Jackson also said he remains in “intense pain” after falling in the shower earlier this month, although he said at another point his health is “perfect.”
Hasn’t Michael learned from the victims family, to get his story straight. You’re either in perfect health or “intense pain,” pick one and stick with it.
Regardless, today could mean some trouble for Jacko if the judge rules whether previous allegations of child abuse made against the pop star can be used in evidence. This would not be a good thing for Jackson, but honestly do you think the majority of the jurors aren’t already aware of this?
