Leave Me Alone

Single Release0 Comments


Jackson releases Leave Me Alone from The Essential Michael Jackson. The song is composed, written and produced by Jackson. It highlights all of the negative stories and slander that was written about Jackson by the tabloid and broadcast media, including stories about sleeping in a gas chamber and purchasing the ‘Elephant Man’s’ bones.

It’s not true. It’s like looking at a fictitious movie because it’s fiction. It’s science fiction. It’s not true. I know myself and it’s sad when other people have to read those things and they believe it. I know eventually the truth will prevail and I’m about truth.
