It takes place as Michael is preparing for a tour and MTV wants to get an interview. Michael’s very press shy, and slowly but surely as they develop a relationship begins to talk about different parts of his life that then get enacted in the show.”

ooooo Billboard, how dare you post something good about Michael. Despite your efforts to destroy it. Michael is the greatest of all, from Robson, D. Reed, Safechuch. They remain, fraudsters, the same losers fraudsters!🤢 This is an inaccurate headline. It has been on an upswing SINCE the year he passed. There are articles to support this. You, Billboard, are supposed to know this. Please do your research instead of letting your inherent bias seep through.

Things didn't go the way you wanted isn't it Billboard? We won't never forget what you did to promote those PROVEN frauds in order to destroy Michael's legacy. MichaelJacksonGreatestOfAllTime An upswing, in spite of you . Still waiting for your photoshoots and cover stories about all the accusers of White Male Rock artists, there are many, but you know that already.

Maybe to you he was a business, but to us fans, he was one of the most kindest, talented, beautiful,caring,genuine human beings on the planet. The way the billboard talks about MJ like it never tried to destroy his legacy makes me sick. Cry more “Beat me, hate me, you can never break me” Haters gonna be hating this....
