"Colin Powell says Michael Jackson had controversy in his life, but in death his art should be celebrated. . . . "Yes, there were some challenges in his life," Powell told CNN's "State of the Union," which released excerpts of the interview ahead of the broadcast. "Yes, there was a great deal of controversy about him. But he's now passed on. Let's celebrate his art."
The problem isn't the "controversy".
The problem isn't the "challenge".
The problem is the serial sexual abuse of and inappropriate relationships with young boys.
In his next statement, maybe Powell can tell us how many records you have to sell in order to be "celebrated", notwithstanding any child molestation, drug abuse and baby buying.
