Now a legitimate double threat, Michael Jackson spews some anti-semetic bile:
On Tuesday, ABC's "Good Morning America" aired portions of a 2003 voice message that Jackson allegedly left for a former adviser, Dieter Wiesner, in which he allegedly accused Jews of leaving performers penniless...
The message was among about a dozen released by attorney Howard King, who represents Wiesner and another former adviser who are suing Jackson.
A transcript of the message provided Wednesday by King's office quotes Jackson as saying:
"They suck them like leeches ... I'm so tired of it. I'm so tired of it.
"They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything and end up penniless. It's a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose."
Jackson's spokeswoman, Raymone K. Bain, said Wednesday the singer had no comment on the report.
Trying to figure out how to blame it on the Jews, no doubt...this is not the first time for MJ:
Jackson infuriated Jewish groups in 1995 when his song "They Don't Care About Us" included the lyrics "Jew me, sue me, everybody do me, kick me, kike me."
Jackson apologized, saying the lyrics were meant to demonstrate the hatefulness of racism, anti-Semitism and stereotyping. He then changed the lyrics.
"Leeches"? "Jew Me"? Well, he sure "demonstrated the hatefulness of racism"!
Look, Jackson, many a pop star has traveled down the sad road of shrinking fame, a cynical public, decreasing revenues, and deviant sexuality. But going down spitting prefabricated anti-Semitism?
Jeez, dude - try an overdose or something; it is so much more dignified...
