As much as we hope and pray that Michael Jackson gets a chance to rest in peace, that most likely will never happen. A few days after the release date for Michael Jackson’s album “Xscape” was announced (May 13th), reports come out saying the project will feature a song about child molestation.
As the story goes, sources close to the project are alleging there is a new song on the album called “Do You Know Where Your Children Are?” The song is said to be about a young girl who is about 12-years-old being sexually abused by her step father. If the song makes the album, it wouldn’t be the first time Michael Jackson has made a song about the assault of a young child. He previously sang about that on the song “Little Susie” from “HIStory: Past, Present & Future.”
On the other hand, it doesn’t matter if the song is on the project or not. The mere fact there is speculation about a song like this being on a Michael Jackson album when Jackson was burdened by allegations of child molestation is bad enough. While we can all celebrate the King of Pop for his contribution to music and the culture, there will always be that small nagging notion in the back of our minds wondering if he actually did commit the crimes that were levied against him while he was alive. Whoever thought it was a good idea to put a song about sexual assault on children on this upcoming Michael Jackson album isn’t playing with a full deck mentally.
