Alicia Keys supports Michael Jackson

November 23rd, 2003

As Michael Jackson awaits his January 9 arraignment on child molestation charges, perhaps he can find some comfort in the widespread support from his music peers.

Singer Alicia Keys said she stood behind Jackson and was sympathetic to his plight.
“I feel offended for him, you know what I mean. I feel offended by the way that the media is handling a man who really has been a major force in American culture since the day that he was born virtually,” Keys said. “I really think he deserves much more respect than he’s getting right now…I think the truth is going to come to light, you know what I mean, and this is going to be over. This is kind of embarrassing, you know what I mean, I’m embarrassed.”
Umm, yeah, we know what you mean.

And another article on the same issue…

“I’m upset at the way he’s being treated in the media,” Alicia Keys said. “I think they’re really trying to slander his name, and I really think that’s unfair for the way that he’s contributed to the American culture since the day he was born. I think he deserves much more than that.”

Keys was especially troubled by Wednesday’s press conference announcing the allegations, where Santa Barbara District Attorney Tom Sneddon often answered questions in a rather lighthearted manner (see “Why Is The DA In The Michael Jackson Case Smiling?”).

“It’s not funny,” she said. “This is someone’s life, and I don’t think he should be reduced to a joke. He’s far more than that.”
