Michael Jackson Says Thank You

Lawyer tells press that the bed-sharing is over

June 15, 2005 12:00 AM ET

In his first public statement since his acquittal, Michael Jackson used his Web site to express his gratitude to his supporters. "Thank you to my family, friends and fans for all of your love and support," reads the new post signed by the forty-six-year-old pop star.

On Monday in Santa Maria, California, Jackson was found not guilty of all ten charges he faced, including committing lewd acts upon a minor, giving an intoxicant to a minor to assist with committing a felony, and conspiracy to abduct a child.

Jackson's lawyer, Thomas Mesereau Jr., told the Associated Press yesterday that Jackson will cease from sharing his bed with children because it "it makes him vulnerable to false charges."

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
