Pat Lalama Comments On Michael Jackson’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview

December 30, 2003 – ‘Celebrity Justice’ reporter Pat Lalama was on ‘American Morning’ to talk about the Michael Jackson interview on CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ on Sunday night. Lalama talked about Jackson’s comment, “Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.” He told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien: “I believe that he believes that whatever it is he does, and it may just be that he shares his bed with a child, I believe that in his heart, he believes that there is nothing wrong with what he does. I mean, only the judicial system in the end will determine based on the facts whether, you know, what he does is legal or illegal. But I think as a matter of the heart, he doesn’t think he’s doing anything wrong. I do think that when he goes into the explanation of his childhood and how damaged he is, I think he feels that. And I do believe that he lives in that environment, that Peter Pan-like environment.” Check out the entire transcript here.

    I don’t think painful is the right word. It’s more like just plain sad.

    And notice no mention of Christina in that kiss. Ouchies :D

    ^Chris did her kiss the way it was rehearsed-NOT OPEN MOUTHED for extra attention!

    I think Christina would be counting her lucky stars that they didn’t mention her KISS has it was one of the most saddest thing I’ve ever seen; a Popstar who was at the top (Britney) looking so desperate in front of MILLIONS of people worldwide. Madonna & Britney can’t save each other no matter how hard they both try and all the party tricks they have in their bags. They both need to wake up, BRITNEY; You can’t sing but you sure can dance they are lots of stripe clubs around LA go FISH. Or if you want class try VEGAS. MADONNA; Your sale by date passed along time ago, let it go, just keep doing the good job your doing with your KIDS. And relax and just enjoy the SWEET LIFE you have built for yourself.

    Why is the kiss in 2nd place???? What’s the big deal with that? Better: what’s PAINFUL in that? I think it was great. I mean, a creative way to celebrate 20 years of the VMA’s. But WHERE IS CHIRSTINA’S KISS?????? does anyone care about HER kiss??? OF COURSE NOT!!! HAHHAHA!!! Her fame as a b*i*t*c*h is so strong that it is okay if she goes out kissing girls. I mean WHO CARES????!!!

    LOL that’s so funny.. Madonna and Britney Spears kiss on the MTV VMAs… Who was the dirrty mop standing on stage that looked like a dragqueen? Who also kissed Madonna but never got any attention.. ??

    I hate to tell you that you need to tell Christina the same thing, she is the one upset over this, and has to deal with it. As far as Madonna, how many times has she been told she was over, and came back with grammies, hits, etc. And she is co-writing a musical. Sorry, she isn’t going anywhere.
