Michael Jackson: It’s still OK to sleep with boys

Dec. 26, 2003: A month after being arrested for multiple, sexual child molestation charges, the late pop star Michael Jackson continued to sing the same tune: It’s OK to sleep with boys.

Jackson told CBS News’ “60 Minutes” anchor Ed Bradley he saw no harm in sharing his bed with children.

“Why not? If you’re going to be a pedophile, if you’re going to be Jack the Ripper, if you’re going to be a murderer, it’s not a good idea. That I am not,” he said.

The superstar first prominently professed his advocacy for sleeping with boys in a television documentary earlier in the year.

“It’s what the whole world should do,” Jackson told interviewer Martin Bashir. “Why can’t you share your bed? The most loving thing to do, is to share your bed with someone.”
