You people should really be careful in two things: 1) In making judgments: I don't know if those pedophilia accusations are true or not, and I really don't care for that matter. What he did or didn't do was settled between him and the family of that kids. And we've all done enough wrong things to be ashamed of that I don't think any of us have the right to make judgments on someone else, unless of course you're perfect and you have complete knowledge of everything that went on in Michael's (or anyone else's) life. And I really doubt anyone here fits those qualifications.

2) Be careful in idolizing someone else (as I read in some of these comments, Michael is a God and so on), because everybody is fallible and if you idolize someone, chances are they will disappoint you. Rather look at the good qualities in each and every person (whether that's their talent for performance or goodness of character, etc.) and admire them for that quality (in a healthy dose) and try to bring out that good quality in yourself. If everyone did that we'd all live in a much better world.

I thought he only wore one glove at first to try to cover up the patchy skin from his vitiligo (before undergoing procedures to make all his skin uniformly white. Because with vitiligo, some of your skin loses it's pigment, become pale white, but not all so you end up with patchy skin that isn't always nice if you're a celebrity in the spotlight (or for anyone for that matter). So as makeup can cover some patches (on his face for instance) and there are of course surgical procedures that will remove all skin pigment so it's all uniform as I mentioned above, it's probably easier to cover patchy areas with articles of clothing such as a glove. But I'm not saying this is definitely the reason he wears the glove, it's just my guess.

It's cool. Or his idea of it. I personally don't find short pants and tight red tops appealing, but who am I to judge? On the other thing - The pedophile thing may or may not be true, but the man is in a bubble. Any person with common sense wouldn't be on tv talking about being in a bed with children, I don't care how innocent or cute. IF you hate tabloids that much, don't give them anything to talk about. And it's MICHAEL, even someone that only likes 1 of his albums knows this, and his #1 fans don't.

Michael wears the glove, because of all the fast body move that he does, people throught it would be easyer to see how he dances with something to help them so the invented the one glove

Michaelwears one glove according too him "one is cooler than two" thats a direct quete from "Moonwalk" by: Michael Jackson. He'd rather set trends than follow them,.

michael jackson wears the glove because when he dances he moves his hands so fast that u wouldnt be able to see them if he didnt wear the glove. that is also why he wears his trousers a little bit too short and has sparkling sox... coz he moves so fast that u wouldnt be able to see his feet if he didnt wear them :) (his costume designers idea)

The answer is simple to those dumb Mother@#%%ers who think there is something wrong MJ starting his own trend and fashion. F-U-C-K the press Micheal Jackson is THE BEST!!!!

i think michael jackson wears one glove to bring the attention to his hands when he dances. I am not sure though but it makes sense.WHT DO YOUS MICHAEL JACKSON HATERS GO ON A WEB SITE FULL OF MICHAEL JACKSON LOVERS? I knew that just because you have money and are famous you shouldn't get away with breaking the law but, michael didn't break the law. If you would rather believe the newspapers than michael himself yous are just sad.michael jackson is a legand?

love you loads and loads michael nicole xxxxxxxxx

The guys that said MJ wears only one glove because he moves so quickly are correct. The people that said he wears only one because he thinks ones cooler than two are also right. The people paying him out for molesting young kids can get stuffed. That was never proved. And don't say it was becuase he just payed the kids family off, he just wanted a quick end to all the bad media being written. There was so much evidence against the charge that he would have won however the media scrutiny would have been huge. Looking back though, he should've gone through with it to keep most of his North American fans. Trust me on this one, there's like a 5 page document outlining all the facts and proceedings leading up to and following the case. Thanks. Oh, if you'd like to read it, it's on the net somewhere (I forget the address) personally I only got half way through and gave up reading :) catchya.

Michael wears one rhinestone glove because his hand movements are so fast, that with the glove, they're easier to see. Plus, like Michael said, one glove is cooler than two. All of you idiots saying crap about Michael molesting children, etc. need to get your facts straight. If you nosey people want to know so much about his private life, read his book, written by Michael himself - not some autobiography written by a reporter-try- hard. Hmm, and if you say, "I like Michael's music, just not Michael," you are so damn ignorant, it's pathetic! Real fans love EVERYTHING about Michael! Michael, a paedophile? That's just stupid.

I don't know why the one glove, but I do know that if he did have sex with that boy, maybe the boy might have wanted him to. I was still a kid at the time it supposably happend and I would and have enjoyed that kind of relationship with an adult. Not all boys are victims.

Michael only wears one glove because when he was doing motown 25 berry gordy (i Think) told him that if he only wore one glove the audience would be able to see his hand moves more clearly. michael is the best and it it really annoys me when people hate him just cos of the way he looks. you try and be in the limelight for nearly 40 years i think youd feel a bit down on yourself!!!!!!!!!! if you havny got anythin goog to say about him then dnt bother cos hes a GOD.

I read an interview and Michael answered that same question. His reply: "Why one glove? Cooler than two." And I just want to say, that anyone who dares to pay out Michael Jackson must be the real cold hearted freaks!!! If you really hate him that much, why waste your time to tell people who love him?? He is the best, most talented, fabulous, one and only King Of Pop in the entire world, and you people who pay him out bloody know it!! F#ck off and tell someone who cares that you don't like him!!! And Michael jackson, I am your #1 fan, and I love you more than anyone!!!

p.s.- all you Jackson fans, please give me an email!! MJ RULES 4 EVER!!!!!!!!

If you are saying that that M J is above the law then you should be ashamed of your self,we all like his music but when it comes down to it if he has been messing about with children he should be put somewhere so that he no longer has access to them.And if you are trying to say he is A balanced person you must be barking mad,as talented as M J surely is it does not give him the right to go round paying off people to avoid prosecution.In years to come when he dies the truth will out and I hope A few of you blind fools will be around to see the damage that was done because people like you turned A blind eye!

Whats so cool about one glove? Nothing. But there could be a number of reasons why he only wears one 1.He lost the other one 2.The other one is still in the wash 3.He likes to have a free hand to pick his nose 4.He is still saving up for the other one 5.He shook hands with one of the Beatles and said he would never wash that hand again 6.He keeps that hand free to molest young boys like the one whos parents he paid off to stop them going to court.

Im not sure on the answer, but I know where you can find it. Go to Ask Jeeves. com and type in MOONWALK, BY MICHAEL JACKSON the autobiography and you can read it online. In one chapeter he talks about it. But I guess you have to the read the book. You can email me at EROSANTHE12@AOL.COM
