Was Michael Jackson mentally ill? Or was he a product of bad parenting/bad handlers?

    If you were raised by an intensely abusive father & mentally absent mother... And then were surrounded exclusively by people trying to appease your every whim when you became an adult...Would you have turned out that same way he ultimately did ??? ...... I think his Mammy trying to assign responsibility to AEG for his death shows real insight into the mentality of said family...

    If he wasn't talented, he would have been a serial killer.

    because he was born mentally ill, or because his upbringing warped his mental faculties..?

    I think he was already knee-deep into the plastic surgeries prior to that... So, his journey was already well under way...

    As cliche as it sounds, he never had a real childhood. Even though the older brothers were required to perform at an early age, the volume was turned up a notch when papa Joe realized his cash cow was Michael. What Joe and Katherine did to those kids was nothing short of abusive. I think Michael had a very fragile ego and his upbringing only exacerbated the possibility of mental illness, kinda liked "pushed him over the edge" scenario.

    however his suspect mental state can be attributed to being thrust into spotlight at young age thus being exposed to sex, drugs, fame, attention etc taking place of 'normal' childhood development hence the need to fill his own void by vicariously and endlessly helping children, coupled with the pressures and confinements of being a worldwide sensation, lack of privacy etc. he seemed very bright yet helpless and certainly talented and exploited individual

    I have a Captain EO shirt and sometimes when I wear it I'm worried that people might think I like child molesters. It was a good film. He's a good singer.
