Wade Robson's Statement on Idol Michael Jackson

Aussie Wade breaks silence

MICHAEL Jackson's closest Australian confidant, Wade Robson, has broken his silence about the iconic entertainer's death.

"Michael Jackson changed the world and, more personally, my life forever," Robson said.

"He is the reason I dance, the reason I make music, and one of the main reasons I believe in the pure goodness of human kind."

Jackson was touring Australia in 1987 when during his stop in Brisbane he met Robson who was just five years old.

Jackson was so impressed with Robson's dancing talent he invited the youngster to perform at his Brisbane concert and then helped Robson, his mother Joy and sister Chantal move to the US two years later. Jackson signed Robson to his music label.

Robson, now aged 26 and based in Los Angeles, is one of the world's best known dance choreographers, working with the likes of Britney Spears, NSYNC, Usher and Pink.

He is the winner of two Emmy Awards for choreography and had his own show on MTV, The Wade Robson Project.

Robson also appeared in three of Jackson's music videos, Black or White, Jam and Heal the World.

"He has been a close friend of mine for 20 years," Robson said.

"His music, his movement, his personal words of inspiration and encouragement and his unconditional love will live inside of me forever.

"I will miss him immeasurably, but I know that he is now at peace and enchanting the heavens with a melody and a moonwalk.

"I love you Michael."

Robson's close relationship at a young age with Jackson, and the nights he spent at Jackson's Neverland ranch, did draw controversy and resulted in Robson being called to testify at Jackson's 2005 molestation trial in California.

Robson defended Jackson and rejected the allegations against him.

Jackson was eventually acquitted.

"Closest Australian confidant"? Really? Are we kind of reaching for people to interview/titles to give the people we interview?
boyfever 27th-Jun-2009 07:46 am (UTC)
It's from an Australian news source so they'd try to make it relevant.
skullset 27th-Jun-2009 07:31 am (UTC)
that's adorable
mindofthebeheld 27th-Jun-2009 07:32 am (UTC)
So I'm a little behind on the autopsy news. Are they treating it like a murder? Or an accident?

I can't believe how sad I am over this. Some of my funniest childhood memories are of me and the siblings trying Michael Jackson dance moves. Like, we thought we'd be the next Jackson 5 or something and we were terrible.
