Speaking what some may be thinking is not always taken kindly. Rupert Everett has made a few comments about the death of Michael Jackson that do not sit well with some. Among the statements, that it was “fortuitous” that Jackson passed away due to the scrutiny that he was to face in his upcoming shows in London.
‘I think it was fortuitous that he died,’ he said. ‘He was supposed to be doing 50 concerts in London. It wouldn’t have mattered how good or bad he was. ‘He wouldn’t have managed to do all of them and the press would have destroyed him.’
Everett went on to say that it was the child molestation case in 2005 that finally did the pop star in.
‘He was crucified by that court case when he was accused of child molestation – that killed him.
Never one to shy away from letting his own opinions known, he went on to discuss how Jackson was a walking ‘performance art’ and that the death of Jackson may herald an end to the way we all look at celebrity.
