"I feel like there was just a huge network of people that allowed all that to go on" https://t.co/VTQcy71aCH— Vulture (@vulture) August 5, 2019
Sheryl Crow is speaking out about the molestation allegations brought against late singer Michael Jackson in the documentary Leaving Neverland.
Crow performed with MJ during the years when James Safechuck who appeared in Leaving Neverland was also traveling with MJ.
“[Safechuck] was a great kid and the whole time he was with us — which was the better half of an 18-month tour — I always wondered: ‘What in the world are his parents doing?’, you know?” Crow said. When asked if she guessed what Jackson was doing to Safechuck, Crow said that she thought “there were a lot of exceptions made” because of Jackson’s status at the time. “He didn’t intentionally project it, but it was part of his aura — this almost being untouchable and almost alien-like [figure],” she said, “And yeah, I mean, I’m sad, and I’m mad at a lot of people. I feel like there was just a huge network of people that allowed all that to go on. It’s just tragic.”
