Anything, for Money?
Many of you recently have seen video, audio or print regarding an interview done with singer Aaron Carter. This interview was done with OK! Magazine, and tabloid journalist Daphne Barak was the interviewer.
Much scandal has come from this interview and things that were alleged to have been said. This news went national and international and is all over the internet.
I’m going to share with you some of my thoughts, as well as facts and information, and also an amazing, well-written piece by The Silenced Truth about Michael Jackson website. This truth needs to be known.
The main problem with all that has gone on, is that the stories that have come out have not corroborated one another, and, the stories Aaron has shared in these recent audio interviews, do not corroborate the stories that he himself shared years ago, insisting that Michael NEVER gave him drugs, nor alcohol and that nothing untoward ever happened between himself and Michael.
Why has Aaron changed his story? Did the tabloids lie?
My goal here is to try to clear up some of the mess and bring some sanity back to what is once again, nothing more than a tabloid, sensationalized story, highlighting lies and untruths. I know some will not agree with my covering this subject, but I aim to do this in a very fair, clear, just manner because, I feel, Michael deserves truth. If we don’t get the truth out there and debunk the lies and sensationalism coming out once again, the skewed stories that have changed over the course of time for everyone’s benefit except for Michael’s, regardless of the lack of truth contained in those stories, then who will?
The problem is, there is a portion of the public that believes these tabloid stories and they won’t take the time to check to see if there is any truth to them.. They see it and immediately say “oh my God! I knew it! Here’s proof of what Michael Jackson did, what kind of a person he was”. This is very damaging because, like nearly everything else, they are sound bytes the media uses to make us believe something. They know we’re too darn lazy to research it ourselves…and they know that any story about Michael Jackson is going to net them big profits.
NOW…what about truth? As Michael stated himself “Has the truth gone out of style?”
What we all know by now, is that tabloids LIE….they will twist people’s words, add things, take things out and just outright lie to put out a story that will sell their magazine or newspaper. Also, don’t quickly discredit the timing of this interview and scandal as a possible attempt to taint the jury pool for the upcoming trial against Michael’s physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.
The problem is, tabloids rely on 2 things to make them successful.
The interviewee, the subject/person being interviewed, and most times this person is offered a LOT of money to do the interview…which can be anywhere in the range of 5 and 6 figures…and in doing so, they agree to insinuate, give innuendo to possible scandal, or outright lie or share negative, juicy stories about another person, most often a person of great renown whose name will sell that tabloid or newspaper. So, the tabloids need that interview subject and, they need the public to buy the crap. So the 2 needs a tabloid has are people willing to sell their soul and lie, for money or to give the publication the right to lie because they needed or wanted that money or publicity so badly, and, the gullible, willing public, wanting to fill a void with garbage news.
So, regardless of what has happened here, be it that Aaron’s words were twisted or lied about, or if he indeed said some of these things, either way, Aaron Carter is responsible for his part in this in that he agreed to the tabloid interview, got paid to do it (this is the major draw of doing a tabloid interview) and, being in the entertainment business, he is well aware of what the tabloids are, and what they do. He MUST take responsibility for his part in this, even if the tabloids twisted his words.
In saying this, however, I ask that no hate be directed towards Aaron. We are all better than that. Many may not be happy with this story or the rotating, changing-by-the-minute stories, not to mention the complete lack of respect for another human being, especially someone who has passed on and can no longer defend himself against this, but, we must act out of a place of love, and dignity.
It’s no secret that the tabloids are full of gossip and lies. This is how they make their money. They sensationalize and bring down others for the monetary success of their publication and their journalists. They have their major part as well in ruining reputations and slandering the character of others. The two work together synergistically. The tabloids need those who are willing to accept money to shovel out dirt. If you interview with a tabloid, you had better be aware that what you share is going to be twisted most times, and, that they will require of you to share “dirt”…if they didn’t, they certainly would not be offering that kind of money to do the interviews. Everyone who knows about tabloids, knows this is how they work.
Long-time friend to Michael Jackson, David Nordahl, spoke with me about this in the interview he did with me, stating that he was approached with tabloids carrying briefcases full of money and that they made it clear they were looking for dirt on Michael. He didn’t take the bait because not only did he have dignity and was a true friend, but, he said it very clearly…This is a paraphrase…”there were no such stories…there was nothing bad to say about Michael.”
Dr. Patrick Treacy, who befriended Michael when he lived in Ireland after the 2005 trial, also spoke of having tabloids offering him lots of money to divulge negative stories about Jackson. He didn’t bite either and also shared that there were NO negative stories to share.
Those with dignity will resist, no matter the amount of money.
Below is what was published on the OK Magazine website, highlighting what is supposed to be in the magazine article:
‘MICHAEL GAVE ME DRUGS’
Opening up for the first time about his controversial relationship with Michael Jackson, fellow child star Aaron Carter shares some shocking truths with OK!
On the second anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, his former friend and confidant, Aaron Carter, 23, has come clean about his close – and controversial – relationship with the pop singer, revealing all to internationally renowned interviewer Daphne Barak during a charity visit to Marbella, Spain.
Exposing their most intimate moments together, Aaron tells OK! how MJ gave him drugs and alcohol when he was just 15.
‘I never talked about it… This is the first time. I do… I miss Michael… I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did… But I was also troubled about what he did to me,’ Aaron says.
When asked whether Michael gave him alcohol, Aaron tells Daphne, ‘Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15.’ As for drugs? ‘He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff… We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behaviour bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police…’
For the full story, pick up a copy of this week’s OK! magazine, on sale now! ~
As I’ve stated above, this clip is from OK! Magazine’s website. That is the direct source. I will not post the link because in doing so, it will earn them money from this story for every click.
From this, we have very little idea, other than the audio/video, of what Aaron Carter actually said versus what was printed. As stated previously, the tabloids routinely change a story around and will mince words that were said in an interview to fit what they want the public to think.
We also don’t know if the audio was edited, though, Aaron himself, in this interview below, claims that what he said on video is what he said, and nothing more. Aaron comes across as upset over this injustice and the lie that he supposedly had stated that Michael gave him cocaine. I understand that anger and I am grateful that it seems he tried to clear this up, but the problem is, the damage was already done by agreeing in the first place, to interview with a known tabloid. I am really not sure at this point on what to think. I was angry when I first heard and now, I just simply want the truth out there.
This interview (below) is a defense from Aaron regarding the recent OK! Magazine article. Notice closely that he vehemently denies that Michael ever gave him cocaine, and, he states that there was wine at this party, and he had some, but he NEVER STATES that Michael gave him the wine. THIS is why we have to pay such close attention.
We know that the Arvizo boys, Star and Gavin (Gavin Arvizo was the boy who accused Michael of molestation in 2003….if you want to learn more about that, click HERE), knew there was a wine cellar at Neverland and they broke into the cellar and stole wine from there. When Michael found out about this and other things the family were doing, he was outraged and this is when he started to want them to leave, they knew there were on their way out, and that’s when the trouble, and allegations, began. Aaron, in this interview below, states that the article above is not true, that he never stated that.
Michael’s long-time friend of 25 years, Frank Cascio, had this to say on Twitter when he heard that OK! Magazine had Aaron Carter stating that Michael had given him (Aaron) cocaine:
I knew Michael for over 25 year and NEVER once did he use cocaine or suggest to anyone else to use cocaine. Never!!!!
Rodney Jerkins, who was also a friend of Michael’s and the music producer for “You Rock My World” off of Michael’s “Invincible” Album, had this to say on his Twitter:
ONLY1DARKCHILD Rodney JerkinsReading this interview that @iamaaroncarter did about MJ. Im so tired of people trying to make a name for them self on the count of MJ.
ONLY1DARKCHILD Rodney JerkinsPeople need to chill out and let MJ rest in peace.
What about the original interview audio interview with Aaron Carter? You can listen to that below:
In the above, original video interview, where you can clearly see that this is Aaron Carter, Aaron is asked by Barak if he saw Michael doing drugs or anything, and his answer was:
“Ugh, I mean, there was definitely…things that happened, you know, that were just different, you know, weird. He, ugh, he drank, he drank around me a little bit, and you know, he (then Barak asks him to verify that he was 14/15). Then, in a nearly inaudible question, Aaron was either asked if any of the other kids were drunk, or, if Michael was acting drunk, and he answered, “ugh, yeah.” He then states that he personally didn’t see any drug issues. He goes on to say that the time he spent with Michael he was fine, but then here’s the kicker “well, who knows…the human body builds a tolerance” leaving that room for speculation that the tabloids demand. He then goes on to say “He could have been doing something and I didn’t have a clue…”
The questioning then continues with Barak stating that Aaron only spent 2 days with him and Michael could have hidden something, with Carter stating “absolutely, he could have walked in the bathroom, it takes 2 seconds.”
So, this interview was not as innocent as some think, and it definitely leaves open for speculation, Michael’s character and lifestyle and, even worse, furthers along the rumors and lies that have been out there about Michael for years now. Worse yet, it’s all lies, as you’ll see as you continue to read this blog.
The video then switches directly to a song tribute that Carter states is a message to Michael…and I can’t help but think, no song, no matter how sincere, can make up for betrayal and the damage already done to Michael’s reputation by the lies and innuendos in that interview. It just doesn’t cut it.
Carter states in this interview that he wants to preserve Michael’s legacy…yet, with the words he is using and the fact that he willingly was interviewed by a tabloid, I’m not sure how he expected to do that
Below is some additional audio that was released July 1st (the original was in June). Has the audio been fooled with? Hard to tell and very possible. There is no video accompanying this audio. But, it’s very clear that in this audio, Aaron says this:
“He wanted me to stay in his room. So he got a cot, a bed, uh, and I stayed on the cot, in his room…and it’s must have been 5 o’clock in the morning, he’s on my bed. He’s on the foot of my bed. (listen closely to how Aaron is saying this…there is no doubt it is being said in a way that insinuates that something might not be right and that he is afraid or confused)….”And I wake up (gasp), like, what are you doing? It’s like, you know, I’m 15 years old, you know, like, what are you doing? Like, oh my God. So he went in his bed and I’m like okaaaaay.
Barak then asks Carter, “when he was doing this, where were they? (Michael’s kids). Aaron answers…”they were right in the room next door.
BUT….What about this Aaron?
On his playdate at Neverland with Jackson, who has been charged with child molestation: “Michael and I have been friends for three years. I went to Neverland for his (45th) birthday bash. We were smashing cake in each other’s faces. It was really cool. Until 5 a.m., me, him and Chris Tucker were out on four-wheelers, riding around in the mountains. Nothing happened between me and Michael. We didn’t sleep in the same room, we didn’t share a bed. We have a normal friendship. There’s nothing sexual to it.” ~People Magazine, November 2004
Did you catch that?
“Nothing happened between me and Michael. We didn’t sleep in the same room, we didn’t share a bed.”
Why now then, is Aaron stating that they did sleep in the same room? The party was in 2003, this interview was done in 2004!!!
Teen pop star Aaron Carter is speaking out to PEOPLE about his troubled relationship with his mother and sister – and about his friendship with Michael Jackson.
After Carter’s mother Jane told “Access Hollywood” that her son had spent an unsupervised night with Jackson at his Neverland Ranch, and Carter’s sister Leslie, 18, implied that drug use may have been involved, Carter told PEOPLE: “I don’t do drugs. I didn’t do them with Michael Jackson and I don’t do them with anyone else.”
Carter, 16, had a lot more to say in a frank discussion.
On his mother and sister: “I really don’t like being around them. All I hear is ‘You need to go on television and make me look better.’ I just think, ‘Just be my mother, just be my sister.’ It’s all about money and publicity for them. My last word to (my mother) is that she’s the adult, not me. But it seems to be switched around.
It’s easy to see that this line of audio that was released July 1st (below) insinuates that Michael was doing something sinister to Aaron, when in fact, all Aaron actually states is that supposedly Michael was sitting on the foot of his bed….did this even happen? We know that in several earlier interviews, he stated that he slept in the movie theater and NEVER slept in Michael’s room! Making matters even worse is that, either by his own accord, or the way the audio may have been altered, this scenario, which I doubt ever happened, is portrayed as somehow scary and that he was afraid. His voice comes across as very deliberate in that he is trying to insinuate something sensationalistic. This completely contradicts everything he has previously testified to numerous times.
Here’s the audio:
Now, compare and contrast that with this interview, below, done several years ago. In this interview below, EVERYTHING that Aaron says is completely opposite of what is in the above interviews. Here, Aaron and his brother Nick Carter, are talking about the EXACT SAME PARTY/event that Aaron speaks about above, and yet, he has completely and utterly, changed every aspect of his story.
I am not crazy about Howard Stern (he of course is a shock jock, just after shocking, disgusting information and innuendos..he’s basically a radio tabloid journalist), and I’m not real crazy about how Aaron acts here either in this interview as I feel that some of his behavior, laughing along, etc. are disrespectful to Michael, whom he claims is/was his friend, but you will see, that Aaron’s original story here is completely opposite of what he has shared in the past month.
The transcript I include below of the above interview, from The Silenced Truth
, shows what Aaron said and how he categorically DENIED any wrongdoing on Michael’s part..said Michael NEVER touched him, that he never suggested they have a sleepover, that he NEVER drank wine with him or smoked weed with him. that he NEVER slept in Michael’s room!
Unfortunately, his joking attitude, of stating “I think I was too old” to Howard Stern when it was stated that his hanging out with Michael Jackson was “dangerous”, to me at least, really puts a very LARGE QUESTION MARK on whether Aaron Carter was ever a true friend to Michael. My guess is, I don’t think so. You don’t talk about your friends like this and insinuate that they might be guilty of something that perverse and disgusting, that you know for a fact, they didn’t do.
Aaron also states here that he slept in the movie theater and Chris Tucker slept in another area of the movie theater (for those unaware, Michael had, in the movie theater, several rooms with beds where kids who were bed-bound and ill, could lie in the beds in the movie theater and still watch the movie)
What I want to know is, how did it go from this interview, where Aaron emphatically stated that Michael NEVER touched him, or asked him to sleep over and NEVER drank wine or did drugs, to stating that Michael may have done drugs, Michael drank in front of him sometimes, and he slept in Michael’s room that night. Just how much money was all of that lying worth? 😦
“(I) never (had sleep-overs with Michael Jackson. You know what, actually, Chris Tucker was there too (at the party) and Rodney Jerkins, he was producing his album. […] It was (Michael’s) birthday party. […] Well, we met him through Rodney Jerkins, he was in the studio and he wanted to meet the both of us. […] No, I don’t think he was interested like everybody portrays him to be. He’s definitely – he’s definitely [gets interrupted by host]. […] (He) never (gave me a car). [His brother Nick jumps in to defend him] You don’t even need to. You don’t even need to.Because it really pisses me off that people would think about Michael like that, because… […] Well, you’re wrong. You’re wrong, Howard. You’re wrong, Howard! […] (I was) fifteen (when I hang out with him). […] He never did (buy me a car).[…] He (just) gave me a jacket that he wore for the 2001 anniversary that he did with his brothers. […] (I never smoked weed with Michael Jackson). No, never, nu-uh. […] (Raising hand) I swear I never smoked weed with Michael Jackson. […] [I never drank wine with him.] No, it’s not true, none of this is true. […] Not a damned thing. […] (He never touched me.) Never, never. […] [He never suggested we have a sleepover.]No, never, never heard anything like that.” (from The Silenced Truth website)
Why the change in story Aaron? Was it all tabloid word manuevering? I’m not sure. One thing I know though is, this is an incredible injustice to a man who never wanted anything more than to help bring awareness to the world, and healing.
The Silenced Truth
also shared this on their website, from an exclusive, anonymous, yet verified source of theirs, on what really happened at Neverland that day in 2003 on Michael’s birthday:
“The context in question is a bash held at Neverland Ranch in 2003 celebrating Jackson’s birthday, at which brothers Nick and Aaron carter, Frank Cascio, music producer and publisher Rodney Jerkins, comedy actor Chris Tucker, former boxer Mike Tyson among others, including a variety of admirers, were present. Jerkins also declared the following on his Twitter account: “I’m so tired of people trying to make a name for them self on the count of MJ.”
….And last, but certainly not least, here is what a (very reliable) acquaintance of Michael Jackson’s, who was also present at the mentioned 2003 birthday, has to say following this media hysteria. For security and confidentiality purposes, we are not revealing their identity, but The Silenced Truth are assuring you all they are both accurate and reliable. We are also encouraging you to forward the below statements – that counter everything that has been recently claimed by both Aaron Carter and the transparent media pundits where you can or find fit:
“He´s been lying a lot about that party. I´m not a famous person and what I say (may) have no meaning, but those who were on that party too and who are famous should really speak about what went on there. Karen (Faye) can also do that (…).
I saw Michael leave for just a few minutes to wash (his face) of (sic) that cake (he was smeared with by Aaron Carter), he was later sipping on a glass of wine, and he never finished it. They were out driving around the ranch with the fourwheelers and we were many out there having a laugh about it. When talking to Michael, he (Michael) said he didn´t even know half of the people being there, but he loved that the fans could be there. When he finally left the party after driving around the ranch, he was alone except for one security guy. He invited a few (I was among them) into the house, we were there for about an hour. He left for his bedroom and didn´t ask us to leave, it was more like “Enjoy yourself, I trust you”. And there were (sic) no Aaron Carter anywhere to be found in that house during that night. He´s taken care off by (Chris) Tucker, I think, I didn´t see him after the drive around the ranch. So much more happened, but not a single minute was Michael out of sight, except when he cleaned up himself.
Sorry for ranting, I never tell people about things like this, but right now I feel so mad. (Aaron) must come forward and say he didn´t say (and do) these things (…).”
The above source states:
“…he was later sipping on a glass of wine, and he never finished it.”
This completely corroborates with what artist David Nordahl shared with me. David was a friend of Michael’s for 20 years, and he shared that he only saw Michael drink wine several times, and ONLY ONE GLASS each time!
Below is what The Silenced Truth website shared in full and I think it’s well worth a read. I encourage you to read this to find out yet further truth about the truth behind these interviews:
July 1, 2011: Rodney Jerkins: “People need to chill out and let MJ rest in peace.” …
As you may have unfortunately learned, an interview with singer and former child star, Aaron Carter, conducted by tabloid mogul, Daphne Barak, took place around two weeks ago. and will soon be made available in full. This interview (with OK! Magazine in Australia) features almost grotesque disinformation directed by the interviewer, Barak even apparently influencing some of Carter’s responses regarding his former (famous) friend, Michael Jackson, through speculation and deliberate innuendo, in order that the exhaustingly circulated (and untruthful) portrayal of Jackson as a drug user (and addict) be rebrought and refreshed in the space of the already majorly manipulated public opinion. This interview has been conducted only a few days after the 6th year celebration of Jackson’s vindication (June 13, 2005) in a court of law on June 13, 2005
All misdemeanor counts against a minor (including of administering alcohol to a minor).
The context in question is a bash held at Neverland Ranch in 2003 celebrating Jackson’s birthday, at which brothers Nick and Aaron carter, Frank Cascio, music producer and publisher Rodney Jerkins, comedy actor Chris Tucker, former boxer Mike Tyson among others, including a variety of admirers, were present. Jerkins also declared the following on his Twitter account:
“I’m so tired of people trying to make a name for them self on the count of MJ.”
To find out about who Daphne Barack is, please click on this link, the bold headline of which being more than revelatory: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/03/24/712377/- Daphne-BarakA-meddling-tabloid-vulture-masquerading-as-a-journalist
You may also recall that Barak interviewed Jackson’s former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, shortly before his death in 2009. In video footage available on the Internet of this interview, Rwaramba expresses her frustration over being fired by Jackson’s team, yet Barak’s later publication of this 1 / 10July 1, 2011: interview would feature damaging revelations such as Rwaramba pumping her former employer’s stomach for drugs several times. The former nanny would quickly counter the preposterous quotes being attributed to her. She would state:
“I am shocked, hurt and deeply saddened by recent statements the press has attributed to me. […] The statements attributed to me confirm the worst in human tendencies to sensationalize tragedy and smear reputations for profit.”
Rwaramba’s close friend, Mallika Chopra, defended her friend by explaining how “so-called journalist”, Daphne Barak, presented herself as a confidant, baiting the nanny for foul information and manipulating it for her article.
Has a similar situation occurred in the case of this latest interview conducted by Barak? Was he misquoted as well? This damaging story, eerily similar to previous false allegations made by subjects for pure monetary gains, has been making its insidious rounds on the Internet over the past 2 weeks, when fans of both Jackson and Carter tweeted him promptly to get him to confirm or deny the authenticity of the said interview and, most importantly, of the quotes attributed to him, that read that Jackson had given him both wine and drugs. Since yesterday, such malevolent quotes have been extensively disseminated by tabloids and other media outlets, including CNN, and Carter himself is yet to make an official statement regarding this unfortunate situation. A video of Carter’s actual interview – a so far edited and poorly taped version – has been made available, although beforehand, more apparent misquotations (unless they have been truncated in the actual subsequent video) of Carter would arise:
“I never talked about it…This is the first time. I do… I miss Michael… I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did… But I was also troubled about what he did to me. Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff… We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behavior bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police.” The alleged confessions about the drugs are actually differently expressed in the said footage. Does not it seem like some more innuendo is being thrown in?….
Here is the transcript of Carter’s statements as shown in the video (courtesy of Qbee from MJJC Staff, who adds some of her own relevant comments), which do not include some of the quoted or misquoted comments available online:
Daphne: Question something about being weird.
2 / 10July 1, 2011: Rodney Jerkins: “People need to chill out and let MJ rest in peace.” …
Aaron: “I mean there was definatly (sic) things that happened that were just different, weird, and, uh, he drank around me” ( why) weird ?? and why state MJ drank around him (a dose of dirt $$$) kind of harmless.
Daphne How old were you ?
I was 14 yrrs (sic) so and a .. yeah
Makes it seem a litle inappropriate [TST editor note: Carter was 15 years old.]
Daphne: But Did he ask you to drink ?
Aaron: Yeah, he did, yeah. (Pay Dirt)
He could have answered as he did in previous interviews and said NO, but NO, doesn’t pay here.
Daphne: Was their (sic) any drug issues?
Aaron starts out fine.
Aaron: I personnaly didn’t see any drug issues, you know, I never saw any injections, nothing like that, no, never saw it.
But then Aaron volunteers this .. alluding to the fact MJ could have been using drugs ..
Aaron: The time I spent with him, yes, he was fine. Ya know, but who knows, the human body builds a tolerance for things, ya know .. so, who knows, he could have been doign (sic) something and I didn’t have a clue. So, ya knows (dirt $$)
WHY volunteer this info ? He wasn’t asked for it.
Daphne says something like you were not with him all the time he could have had pills???
Aaron: Right. Absolutely. Sure. He could have walked in the bathroom and took it. Ya know .. it takes 2 seconds .
(Right & Absolutely ???????) no pause for thought (just a little more dirt $$)
There is cut in the video here .. so we don’t know what more he said .. before this.
Aaron wants to play his song probaly (sic) from his new album (The promotional perk he gets for dishing the dirt) .
Sadly, this is how it works.
Aaron: You know, I wanted to Express that ah – A message to him if he could have heard it. Ya know, (cut) and that I’m gonna protect his Legacy (Cut) It’s funy (sic) becuase (sic) a lot of the things that Michael did I wanna do. (cut)
Aaron: This is the tribute.
Daphne: sounds like she says an Ode to Michael.
Aaron sings the song.
Aarons says thank you”
We can only wonder what bits were cut from this interview. Most likely, flattering words about Jackson that tabloid moguls cannot afford to publicize. Daphne Barak is a tabloid journalist that pays very well for dirt. Tom Sneddon, former district attorney of Santa Barbara County, would have undoubtedly used this ‘evidence’ for the 2005 shakedown of a trial, but never did, as it never existed. Moreover, the FBI files, declassified a few months after Michael Jackson’s death, are demonstrating that no incriminations related to him have ever been discovered and documented, despite most extensive investigation.
Here is what long-time friend, Francesco (Frank) Cascio, had to say on this recent allegation on his Twitter account the other day:
“I knew Michael for over 25 year and NEVER once did he use cocaine or suggest to anyone else to use cocaine. Never!!!!”
Michael Jackson’s cousin, Anthony Jackson, wrote:
“When in doubt, listen to your heart instead of what people say” #MichaeLegacy”
In 2006, Aaron Carter (accompanied by brother Nick) appeared on the Howard Stern Show.
(Stern is another pseudo-journalist known to mercilessly poke fun and make defamatory remarks at Jackson)
Here is what Aaron C. had to say about Jackson in this interview (which you can find on YouTube):
“(I) never (had sleep-overs with Michael Jackson.
You know what, actually, Chris Tucker was there too (at the party) and Rodney Jerkins, he was producing his album. […] It was (Michael’s) birthday party. […] Well, we met him through Rodney Jerkins, he was in the studio and he wanted to meet the both of us. […] No, I don’t think he was interested like everybody portrays him to be. He’s definitely – he’s definitely [gets interrupted by host]. […] (He) never (gave me a car). [His brother Nick jumps in to defend him] You don’t even need to. You don’t even need to. Because it really pisses me off that people would think about Michael like that, because… […] Well, you’re wrong. You’re wrong, Howard. You’re wrong, Howard! […] (I was) fifteen (when I hang out with him). […] He never did (buy me a car). […] He (just) gave me a jacket that he wore for the 2001 anniversary that he did with his brothers. […] ( I never smoked weed with Michael Jackson). No, never, nu-uh. […] (Raising hand) I swear I never smoked weed with Michael Jackson. […] [I never drank wine with him.] No, it’s not true, none of this is true. […] Not a damned thing. […] (He never touched me.) Never, never. […] [He never suggested we have a sleepover.] No, never, never heard anything like that.”
In a 2004 interview with PEOPLE, Carter says: “I didn’t do drugs with Michael Jackson.”
Moreover, in a 2010 interview he did with author and journalist, Sandy Lo, Aaron Carter declared the following on his late friend:
“I kind of have some animosity (that he is gone). I knew Michael personally and we grew up very similar (sic). His death, for some reason, made people realize, but only for a minute – that their negativity in this world is what brings everybody down. It’s a very touchy subject for me. Michael was a very timid person. The world made him timid, but he also felt he had to continue to keep himself out there and show his face, because he had all of those fans. He really did love his fans. That was the only thing that kept him going – was his fans and that he wanted to make the world a better place. When he said that, he wanted to help people be more positive and be more caring and giving. It didn’t really happen. People just mourned over the fact that he died instead of realizing what he did. That’s pretty much all I have to say.”
And last, but certainly not least, here is what a (very reliable) acquaintance of Michael Jackson’s, who was also present at the mentioned 2003 birthday, has to say following this media hysteria. For security and confidentiality purposes, we are not revealing their identity, but The Silenced Truth are assuring you all they are both accurate and reliable. We are also encouraging you to forward the below statements – that counter everything that has been recently claimed by both Aaron Carter and the transparent media pundits where you can or find fit:

I saw Michael leave for just a few minutes to wash (his face) of (sic) that cake (he was smeared with by Aaron Carter), he was later sipping on a glass of wine, and he never finished it. They were out driving around the ranch with the fourwheelers and we were many out there having a laugh about it. When talking to Michael, he (Michael) said he didn´t even know half of the people being there, but he loved that the fans could be there.
When he finally left the party after driving around the ranch, he was alone except for one security guy. He invited a few (I was among them) into the house, we were there for about an hour. He left for his bedroom and didn´t ask us to leave, it was more like “Enjoy yourself, I trust you”.
And there were (sic) no Aaron Carter anywhere to be found in that house during that night. He´s taken care off by (Chris) Tucker, I think, I didn´t see him after the drive around the ranch. So much more happened, but not a single minute was Michael out of sight, except when he cleaned up himself.
Sorry for ranting, I never tell people about things like this, but right now I feel so mad.
(Aaron) must come forward and say he didn´t say (and do) these things (…).”
(!) Edited for latest news (from another tabloid, TMZ, but better than nothing..?):
“Aaron Carter’s rep claims the singer NEVER told an entertainment reporter Michael Jackson gave him cocaine and alcohol when he was 15 years old … and says the reporter COMPLETELY FABRICATED the story.
The controversy stems from an article that ran in OK! Magazine in Australia, written by international journalist Daphne Barak
In the article, Carter was quoted as saying, “Yes, [MJ] gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. As for drugs? He gave me cocaine.” But Carter’s rep tells TMZ,
“Nothing was said that was reported” … and directed us toward a YouTube video of the interview with Barak … which seems to back up Aaron’s side of the story. We’ve reached out to Barak for comment — so far, no response.”
Let us hope Aaron Carter himself will make a conclusive statement about this soon… Because as of late, by reading the video’s said interview transcripts, by watching and listening to this interview (which we will choose not to post), and due to yet not addressing this grave issue personally, it is obvious that, to some quite large extents, Carter is being just as responsible as interviewer Daphne Barak and OK! Magazine….
Edit II: The second part of this leaked interview contains an even more damaging scenario and an utterly false one. Carter is alluding to intended child molestation by Michael Jackson. We are not going to be according even more attention to these salacious, money-driven accusations.
Aaron Carter has been undoubtedly paid for this interview and even more to say these kind of lies, therefore is equally to blame for such a horrid betrayal through shameless deceit.
Please, resume above reading for previous quotations of other interviews with Carter denying any kind of impropriety between him and Jackson.
….. For how long will Michael Jackson’s name and memory continue to be frivolously and shamelessly tarnished? How many more so-called friends will continue to betray him, even moreso after his (very suspicious.. and planned) death? For what mundane and evanescent price? How many more lies will his children and other loved ones have to hear? When will his soul be finally left to rest in peace?…
In the meantime, if you wish to contact the following people: Daphne Barak (see above), you can do so on this email address:
To contact Ok Magazine US: Editor: Richard Spencer, email: Richard.Spencer@okmagazine.com

For some more observations on the media’s most perverse strategy to mask an actually very simple, yet profound truth about Michael Jackson, tune in soon for a follow-up bullet. … The media and their chosen accomplices are in this together. The following days, more snippets of this terrible interview will be leaked, among which, it is claimed, even more disturbing revelations. Regardless, please, prepare to arm yourselves with calmness, and know for certain that there is a large media conspiracy against Michael Jackson erupting (yet again..) and that he is innocent of all such mean-spirited allegations as proven. We will keep you posted on this story as it unfolds. ..
