Rose McGowan believes Michael Jackson ‘was a bad man’
Rose McGowan – who shared her own story of alleged sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein – wouldn’t want to try to erase Michael’s music from history.
LONDON – Rose McGowan says Michael Jackson fans need to accept that their hero was a bad man, but insists it doesn’t mean they can’t still listen to or enjoy his music.
The 45-year-old actress has offered her opinion on the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary which features allegations from Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim that Jackson sexually abused them as children.
She insists she believes both accusers and says the late King of Pop’s fans need to realise that people are really complex and even though he could be guilty of these crimes, he is still a great musician.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Headliners, she said: “Of course I [believe what these men are saying is true]. Why on earth would anyone want to come out and expose themselves to so much hate if they weren’t trying to regain some control in their own life? Control that had been robbed and stolen, and I’m sorry your hero was a bad man, I’m really sorry your hero was bad. It doesn’t mean that you can’t listen to or enjoy his music, you just have to understand that people are really complex and this person had a particular complexity that hurt a lot of others.” – Source
The A-List Interview: Rose McGowan
You’re starring in the upcoming thriller Rosewood Lane, which was written and directed by Powder’s Victor Salva, whose films often reflect his gay sensibility and outsider mentality. Is that the case with Rosewood Lane?
I don’t think so. And I do not have good clothes in that film either; I had to wear office-lady clothes and it killed me. That was an interesting dynamic, because Victor had never done a movie with a female lead, and he was uncomfortable. He really doesn’t relate to women well. He was open about that, which was slightly jarring, because I don’t really know what to do with that information.
Well, Salva is a convicted and registered sex offender, which might account for some social awkwardness.
Yeah, I still don’t really understand the whole story or history there, and I’d rather not, because it’s not really my business. But he’s an incredibly sweet and gentle man, lovely to his crew, and a very hard worker. – Source
