Despite being accused of sexual abuse, pop singer, Michael Jackson will not be ejected from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
TMZ reports that MJ’s two slots in the Hall Of Fame will stay put and won’t be removed or altered in any way. This is coming despite the allegations made in HBO’s doc about the singer.
According to an HOF official, the singer will not be removed because music is music.
HOF honchos say Jackson, as with all of its inductees, was recognized for musical excellence and talent, along with having a lasting impact on rock ‘n’ roll. In other words, MJ changed music, like, forever.
“What’s more … Michael was voted into the Hall (twice) by a voting body of historians, fellow musicians, and music industry professionals. He got in with the Jackson 5 in 1997, and again as a solo artist in 2001, when ‘NSYNC inducted him.”
As for whether his HOF exhibit might be changed at all or possibly even removing memorabilia, but sources say it will stay the same.
A children’s museum in Indianapolis recently removed three pieces of MJ memorabilia items in the wake of Wade Robson and James Safechuck’s claims.
