Michael Jackson’s Mother Denounces ‘The Biggest Lie’ About Her Son

Jul 20 2013, 3:42pm CDT | by ABC News Radio

Carlo Allegri/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Katherine Jackson said her son, Michael Jackson, was a loving father and a doting son, and said it is hard to hear what she believes are misconceptions of the King of Pop, who died in 2009 at the age of 50 after being given a lethal dose of the drug propofol.

“The most difficult thing is to sit there in this court and listen to all the bad things they say about my son,” she said on the stand Friday her family’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live, the company that was promoting the world tour Michael Jackson was preparing for when he died. “[They] call my son a freak, saying he is lazy.

“My son was not lazy,” Jackson, 83, continued. “That is the biggest lie around.”

In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Michael Jackson was a very good artist, his mother said, adding that some of his work has been sold. And of course, “he was born dancing,” she said. “He was in my arms and couldn’t be still, was dancing.”

She also described Michael as a philanthropist who took joy in helping others, including his family. When asked if he ever gave her gifts, Jackson responded, “All the time. He gave me everything, the necessities of life, gifts, cars, jewelry, mobile homes.”

However, she did not think he was physically able to complete the grueling world tour he had planned, and added that she called AEG Live’s CEO Randy Phillips and Jackson’s former manager, Dr. Tohme Tohme, about it. She said she didn’t know Conrad Murray, the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, until after Michael had died.

“When a mother loses a child,” she said, crying, “that’s the worst than can happen to a person.”

“Michael and I were very close,” she added. “He was the son — a mother wouldn’t want a better son than Michael.”

5 Reasons why the VMAs No Longer Matter

Aug 25 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

If video really did kill the radio star, MTV may have in turn killed its own creation: the video. For years, of course, the network has seemingly been video-phobic, devoting nearly all of its time to reality shows, scripted dramas and other programs that beg the question of why the letter "M" still appears in its name. Once a year, though, MTV remembers that videos still exist (even if they air primarily ...
