Diana Ross and Barbara Streisand Defend Michael Jackson’s Legacy
The iconic Diana Ross was recently celebrated at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards but is now speaking out to fans after the Leaving Neverland documentary has produced shock waves across the world. On Twitter, Ross used her own hit “Stop! In the Name of Love” to speak positivity on the legacy of the King of Pop.
This is what’s on my heart this morning. I believe and trust that Michael Jackson was and is A magnificent incredible force to me and to many others.
STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE
— Ms. Ross (@DianaRoss) March 23, 2019
Barbara Streisand also spoke in favor of Jackson over the weekend detailing the two accusers from the documentary were “thrilled to be there” and stating that whatever interaction did not affect their lives. Deadline reports Streisand would go on to release a full statement clarifying her statement: “The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them. The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children. It’s clear that the parents of the two young men were also victimized and seduced by fame and fantasy.”
