MJ's Pal Hits Back at Critics

She explains all about THAT appearance of his at the World Music Awards...

World Music Awards founder Melissa Corken has spoken out in defence of MJ's 'performance' at the bash last Wednesday night.

Talking to MTV UK News, she said, "Let's get this straight, Michael was coming to collect an award, not perform. He doesn't have a record ready.

"The press picked up on a rumour that he was going to sing 'Thriller'. He was NEVER going to perform 'Thriller'. It was always going to be Chris Brown performing as a tribute"

She continued, "Michael was a little overwhelmed by (the press stories). He said I can't do 'Thriller' because I haven't done it for ten years.

"He wasn't quite ready to perform but he wanted to do something more than just accept his award so he decided to sing some of 'We Are The World'. He was courageous enough to do that."

And while most of the British tabs bigged up how many boos he got, Melissa told us the overall vibe of the show was overwhelmingly positive.

"He's played two times at the WMAs already but this time was even more explosive - I've never felt energy like that before. It was just wonderful. Over 10,000 people from all across the world came to see him.

"I love Michael, everyone assumes he's a diva but he's not - he demands nothing. He's just a really nice simple man. I went to see him and his beautiful children chilling in their hotel room."

And despite all the stick he also got for his appearance, Melissa told us that up close MJ looks fine. "He has beautiful skin and nice hair. He was looking good."

I'm glad she set the record straight. I think the speculation that he was going to perform was way out of proportion. It was way overhyped.

As founder of the WMA's, I'm glad she said something. I know probably she just wants to gloss over all the other logistical miscues at the awards, though. But if she had to say anything, its great that she chose to speak out about Michael.

"I love Michael, everyone assumes he's a diva but he's not - he demands nothing. He's just a really nice simple man. I went to see him and his beautiful children chilling in their hotel room."
Aww. :cloud9

I don't see this particular article as her glossing over logistical miscues. I think she was adressing the specific issue of the way the media lost their f_ckin' minds about what they thought was supposed to be a "performance". And she particularly spoke to it.

Yeah, I didn't mean that she'd do that in his particular article, I meant with her making a public statement in general to address the problems during the awards. Then again? Her job is not to wake a sleeping giant. The media wasn't at all focused the delays between performances or any of the other issues. They focused on MIKE.

Good for her for addressing the madness around him--and making it personal at that! I loved that she upped his appearance. People just don't know what they're missin' out on, too busy talking junk about him!

You got the hint. :P Yeah I noticed the absence too. But I thought the article was particularly on the issue of Mike.

I wonder too if Raymone B. didn't have something to do with making sure these people spoke up about the truth instead of remaining silent and hoping the attention would go away.

I tell ya, people can say what they want about Raymone B. Unless or until she does something worthy of my total and utter hatred (:lol), I'm gonna give her a chance because she's done more for Mike than any PR person has done for him in at least the last 10 years.

Ahhh...very nice article.:D I just don't appreciate the 'name' they call him in their site. What is so hard about writing Jackson?:rolleyes:

But anyway, I liked reading this article especially this part:
And despite all the stick he also got for his appearance, Melissa told us that up close MJ looks fine. "He has beautiful skin and nice hair. He was looking good."

I'm reserving judgement on her. She may not always act when we want her to act, or say the things that we want her to say. Thing is, we're not in her shoes, and cannot even begin to imagine the chaos. Sometimes its frustrating as a fan when certain things go down and it makes you wonder if it could have been prevented, but other than that...Sista has to screw up big time for me to get my steel toed boots out!
