My son wants to listen to a Michael Jackson album but i'm not sure If I feel comfortable letting him endorse such a sick and twisted man. I know he argues that it's about the music, but I just don't want his essence or image in my home.

Should I stick to my guns and ban any Michael Jackson content? or should he be allowed to listen to it?

I think Michael Jackson was a tragic but hugely talented performer - the likes of we might not see for a long time. I'd be happy for my son to listen to his music.

Brilliant thread- well- brilliant responses. I love MN for threads like this.

Think holidaybug had the right idea. Get the thread bacon track or MNHQ will make it HIStory.

It's not something we have ever encouraged in this house. I can't stand to even look at any of his videos any more let alone listen to any of his music. Thankfully ds doesn't listen to his music as it's 'old.'wink

Old music? That's BREAKING NEWS to me. Nice to see other die hard fans here, good to know YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
