Was Michael Jackson Possessed by a Boy-Hungry Alien Glove That Made Him Molest Children? This Musical Says Yes

We here at The Blemish have been on Johnny Depp’s side in his divorce drama with his horrible ex-wife Amber Heard, but Depp might now be going too far, even for me. No, not in his divorce proceedings, all I have to say there is “drag her, King.” I’m talking about the Michael Jackson musical Depp had been attached to but has apparently left in a dispute over the credits.

It’s just as well for Depp because the musical, called For the Love of a Glove, features an alien glove that forces Jackson to molest children.

Yeah, it sounds crazy, but the details THR gave on the show make it sound kind of interesting, too.

Written by L.A. playwright and filmmaker Julien Nitzberg, For the Love of a Glove tells the story of what happens after a group of aliens shaped like bedazzled gloves crash-land in Jackson’s hometown of Gary, Indiana. “It turns out, [the glove] can give people magical musical talent if it drinks their blood and has part of their body inside of it,” Nitzberg, 54, tells Rambling Reporter. “But it can only feed on virgin boy blood.”

Naturally, one alien glove attaches itself to a young Michael Jackson, who eventually learns that he can’t feed all five alien gloves himself, so he starts bringing boys home.

That sounds entirely insane but in the best way. It gets crazier because it’s a Michael Jackson musical without Michael Jackson music. The music for the show is all original compositions instead of a catalogue of Jackson’s greatest hits.

Writer Julien Nitzberg also explains that he sees the play as being an alternative to “cancel culture,” where we try to force everyone who isn’t morally pure to go away forever and instead wants us to embrace a “process culture” where we accept that people’s mistakes don’t define them.

Nitzberg says now is the time to process Jackson’s story rather than cancel his legacy. “We should be in ‘process culture,’ where we process how fucked up people are and understand what made them that way,” he explains. “I think there’s a collective trauma of everyone who grew up as a Jackson 5 fan and a Michael fan. This is a way to process that in a fun way while helping people understand all of the really fucked up stuff that affected Michael’s life.”

Not a bad idea, honestly. Still, kind of feels like a waste of a story about an alien pedophile glove.

You need to update your article and recheck the THR article you linked, Johnny Depp was never involved
“ Update Dec. 4, 12:07 p.m.: An earlier version of the story listed Johnny Depp and his production company Infinitum Nihil as producers of For the Love of a Glove. There is currently a dispute over credits and a rep for Depp says that he and his company are not producing and not involved in any way.”

Please,update your article, Stephen Deuters,Johnny´s assistant, denied Johnny is involved in the production at this musical. He said he is not involved,in twitter. They were fake news trying to smear Johnny as usual.

Sounds like Julien Nitzberg is the pervert, and not Michael Jackson.
