Michael Jackson Passes Away, Was Once Involved In a Fine Beverage Scandal

Michael Jackson Jesus Juice

Unless you live in a cave that does not have Wi-Fi, then you’ve undoubtedly heard of Michael Jackson’s death from cardiac arrest today, but did you know about his fine beverage scandal involving serving wine to kids in soda cans?

Entertainment Weekly reported on January 29, 2004 that, “In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, [Jackson’s former business adviser] Myung-Ho Lee claims the singer tried to seduce at least one boy by serving him Coca-Cola cans that were actually filled with wine. Jackson called the white wine ‘Jesus juice’ and the red wine ‘Jesus blood,’ Lee tells the magazine.

Following this, The Smoking Gun would report about a Los Angeles couple trying to trademark a wine using Jackson’s term “Jesus juice” with label that was controversial to say the least.

Jacko will be missed by all at Mutineer, who will be abolishing wine glasses and drinking all wine and other libations out of soda cans for the rest of the day, a practice our layout editor Jordan Luckman does from time to time anyways…

    Ahh Michael, such a tragic figure in American legend. Pop-star, deviant and yet an icon in the music industry. What ever the case you made me love music, but the kiss with Lisa Marie was still creeeeeepy.

    He’s still the King of Pop in my book!

  3. Alan Kropf | Thursday, June 25, 2009

    He’s still the King of Pop in my book…again!

  4. Alan Kropf | Thursday, June 25, 2009

    I would’ve thought that being that he’s the Kind of Pop, someone else would’ve already thought of that?

  5. Alan Kropf | Thursday, June 25, 2009

    Watch your mouth Cruz, ur talking about the King of Pop

  6. Alan Kropf | Thursday, June 25, 2009

    Ok, but seriously, the dude is a musical legend, genius, and icon. Truly a sad day for music…

    Does someone actually make this wine or is it a joke?

    I’ll respectfully disagree with you on this. The elevation of musical legends, icons and geniuses in our culture to a status which completely leaves moral rules up for grabs is something we all need to take a long look at.
    I weigh in not to judge or condemn Michael Jackson but rather to suggest that we need to look closely at ourselves, our pop culture. I urge everyone to look at their hearts here and ask honestly. Would we have felt the same about this man had he did not possessed such awesome gifts? If he were merely the tragic Pagliacci, man-child figure working behind the counter at BevMo, would we be so quick to say ask him to baby sit for our little children while we’re out Friday night simply because he gave us great service at check out? Or would we categorize him differently?
    Not exactly party on subject matter, I know. But here’s the deal. What if we sometimes stepped back just a bit and stopped taking pop culture and our icons less seriously and really looked at them as just people? Maybe, just maybe, someone would have given enough of a shit to intervene in his life and care about him as a person, a flawed, fragile person like each of us. I hate it when “musical legends, geniuses and icons” die without real friends. I hate it that anyone dies without grappling with consequences and accountability like the rest of us.
    The jokes, the satire, the crap that is part and parcel to celebrity death has only just begun here. I’m really gonna need a drink.

    Myung-Ho Lee had a bitter contract dispute with Michael Jackson. The accusation is uncharacteristic of Michael Jackson.
    I raise a toast to your humanity, long may it search you out.
