Sean Lennon has spent a lot of time with Jackson when he was around the age of 8-15.
Sean Lennon ist the son of John Lennon & he was also one of Michael Jackson’s special friends. His friend, Mark Ronson, told a story which defends Michael Jackson and attacks him at the same time (even though Mark didn’t want that). I have to admit that it is very difficult to find facts about his & Michael’s friendship, so this article won’t be the longest one. Sean doesn’t talk about MJ that much & he isn’t really famous as one of Jackson’s boys. He is often forgotten. Sean Lennon lost his father when he was only 5 years old. As we all know, John Lennon was killed in 1980. His son became a close friend of Jackson in 1983, at the age of 8, as he himself sings in his song Bubbles Burst.
After their first meeting, Michael decided that he has to take care of the boy. He said that he feels sorry for the child having no father & that he could be a father to him. Makes sense, since Jackson always talked about his own father & their bad relationship. Sean and Michael really had a close bonding. People seem to forget that just because there aren’t many pictures of them. In 1985, when Sean was 10, he slept in Jackson’s bed. However, Sean says that Jackson never molested him. He and Jackson sometimes had sleepovers with another boy, called Mark Ronson. This man told a story which confused a lot of people. Even though, Mark Ronson also says that MJ never molested him.
Ronson says that he and Sean Lennon used to watch the porn channel at Michael’s house when they were like 10, with Michael laying on the bed right behind them. Ronson told Jackson: “Look,it’s naked girls”. Jackson’s answer was: “Oh stop it,oh stop it, it’s so silly”. Jackson didn’t stop them, he just didn’t look at it, but he allowed those two boys to watch the porn channel. Maybe for Jackson, it was pretty normal that children see two people having sex. He was watching naked women as a child and his father (and older brothers) had sex in the same room while he was laying on his bed, acting like he was asleep.
“It’s a weird story, but I didn’t touch him. We (Lennon & Ronson) used to watch the porn channel because we were like, 10 and ‘Oh my god (boobs)!’ So Michael was in bed. And me and Sean said,’Michael,do you want to see something cool?’ We turned the dial to the porn channel and there were strippers shaking their (boobs) around. We were like, ‘Michael,Michael,how cool is this?’ We turned around and he was cringing, saying,’Ooh stop it,stop it,ohh,it’s so silly.’ We were like,’Michael,you have to look, maybe your not seeing it right, it’s naked girls!’ He was not down with the program whatsoever! I think he had really strong feminist views on porn.” ~ Mark Ronson
Of course, Jackson’s reaction shows that he didn’t like heterosexual porn videos. Even kids had more interest in that than MJ, but still no adult should be laying in bed watching porn videos with 10-year-old boys. You can read more about Jackson’s homosexuality here:
Some more pictures of Michael Jackson & Sean Lennon, aged 9-11:
In 1987, Michael & the now 12-year-old were also seen together. Sean was invited to the set of Bad during the same year.
In 1988, Michael released the movie Moonwalker. Who was one of the main characters? Exactly, his 13-year-old friend Sean Lennon.
Michael also invited him to the set of Smooth Criminal. He wasen’t the only kid that was around while filming the video.
Michael also had contact to Sean’s mother. Here is a picture, in which you can see Sean Lennon & his mother. Sean is here 14 or 15 years old:
It was 1990. According to Mark Ronson, he and his 15-year-old friend Sean Lennon recorded a song with Michael Jackson. 1990 was the last year of Michael Jackson’s & Sean Lennon’s friendship. He has spent most time of his boyhood with Jackson, aged 8 to almost 16. What does Sean say about the boy abuse claims?
“It’s funny! People who think Michael is a diddler always assume that he bought off the families of the kids he molested. You hear it all the time. They say he must have just written a million dollar check to all the kids who threatened to come forward. But look at me. I was one of the kids that he befriended at a young age. I may have spent more time with him than almost anybody else. I’ve seen all kinds of people publiciy speculate that he abused me. But I think my family is actually richer than he is, so it would be quite the trick to buy me and my mother off. It’s ridiculous. No way, Mike is a child abuser. Take it from me. I knew the kids he knew. I would have known if anything funny was going on.”-Sean Lennon
So, Sean says he wasen’t molested, just like Mark Ronson, but it still was strange that Jackson watched porn with them at such a young age.
In 2016, he published a song that is called ‘Bubbles burst’. It is about Michael Jackson’s monkey. Sean admitted that he lost contact to Michael when he turned into a young adult:
Especially interesting is Verse 2 of the song:
We met in the arcade
Playing video games
We both could not believe it was
Like living in a dream
We didn’t understand
Dancing with Peter Pan
What would be the result when we
Turned into young adults
In an interview, Sean said the following:
“I was telling Les [Claypool] about it, and we were talking about song topics, and it just seemed like it fit in with the theme of trippy narratives that our record has. And I thought it’d be interesting to write about something that actually happened. It just felt right. I think I’d resisted much of my life talking about those kinds of stories, because they just seemed so hard to figure out how to translate them or relate them. And I just thought it was an interesting metaphor for what happened to a lot of Michael’s friends who were my age. It felt like there was something odd going on, and I still don’t know what it was. Nothing ever happened with me in an illegal way, but the whole place just felt like I was in some Peter Pan fantasy land. And there was a sense that when Bubbles got too old, he’d have to be gotten rid of, because chimpanzees turn into angry adults or dangerous adults. And it just felt like that was something I could relate to in terms of the whole situation out there. Because there was something Michael liked about hanging out with kids, because they’re so innocent and fun. Then, when you become an adult, it felt like you were a chimpanzee: too old to play with anymore.”~Sean Lennon
