Dr Murray Is Guilty But Michael Jackson Was A Drug Addict!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Okay, so Dr. Conrad Murray is found guilty of involuntary manslaughter of legendarypop singer Michael Jackson. He's going to jail for 4 years but it still doesn't remove the fact that the famed singer was a drug addict.

Yes, the public and the media can blame all the Doctors who gave Jackson the drugs needed to maintain his addiction but it won't remove the factof what the singer had become.

So blame Dr. Murray, Dr. Arnold Klein, and all the pharmacists and the people who helped buy drugs for the singer. Blame it on MJ "not being with a right state-of-mind" during his drug-induced periods. Blame it on his lawyers, assistants, security personnel, AND HIS FAMILY for falling under the spell of the multi-millionaire singer, who could instantly cut-off the money lifeline of anyone who told him "NO."

Michael Jackson was a drug addict plain and simple.

Eerily, he fell under the same lifestyle as his legendary "Father in-Law" Elvis Presley, who died of an overdose and a noteddrug addict.

The "King of Pop" was a 50 year-old man who could not live without pain killers and other prescription medication tohelp him sleep.

His addiction may have stemmed from the infamous Pepsi commercial in which a pyrotechnic malfunction caused him to have severe burns on his head. Experts believe that the pain from the severe burns may have led to his drug addiction to pain killers.He may have become reliant to pain killers even though the pain may have dissipated over the years and it may have stirred his interest to obtain drugs to help him sleep. Others believe that his addiction may have stemmed fromthe tumultuous relationship he had with his Father, Joe Jackson. The singer made no secret that he was emotionally-scarred by his Fatherwhen he was growing up.

While his addiction to drugs was largely kept secret from the public, the singer wouldbe under suspicion of child molestation that was never proven in court. Lord knows how much hush money was spentin order to keephis victims and witnessesquiet.

To this day,the life of Michael Jackson and his familyis still shroudedinmystery. The celebrity of the Jacksons is well-publicized but their private life is largelysecret. Money can be used to groom a star but it can also be used to keep secrets out of the spotlight.

Dr. Murray may be guilty of contributing in the death of Michael Jackson but the singer's insatiable appetite for drugs is well-documented.

MJ never looked at "The Man in the Mirror" to what he had become and he had too many willing and well-paid assistants helping him with his addiction.

In the end, whatever inner demons he had to live with, he just couldn't "Beat it."
