Belinda DileoBelinda Dileo Asks Sheryl Crow To Stop Lying. 14-06-'21

For the last decade, Sheryl Crow, who was once a back-up singer for Michael Jackson during the Bad World Tour, has been making up stories about Michael Jackson to make her relevant and remind the world she is still there – but who really cares!

This last few days, she is at it again! This time she goes after the late Frank Dileo who was Michael Jackson manager during the period 84-89.

She claimed that Dileo has been sexually harassing her during the Tour.

For years, Michael Jackson fans have been denouncing her shady attitude to get her name in the News headlines with no evidence and some times even proving she was actually lying.

And this time, she is finding her match! Belinda Dileo, Frank's daughter, is fighting back in the name of her late father. She is asking Crow to explain why she has to drag her father in the mud when Belinda was actually around and knows the truth.

Crow is jumping on the MeToo Movement to promote live stream show. Everytime Crow has something to promote or to sell, she gets her name in the news outlets to make sure the general public sees it.

Girl, it's time you get called on your bad behaviour!

And we hope Belinda gets to talk to her and set the record straight!

Sheryl Crow: 'We've Come A Long Way Since The Sexual Harassment I Endured During The Michael Jackson Tour'. 12-06-'21

Sheryl CrowIn 1987, a 25-year-old backing singer and aspiring songwriter from Missouri gatecrashed her way into the Los Angeles auditions for Michael Jackson's first ever solo world tour. "Hi Michael, my name is Sheryl Crow and I just moved here," she announced. "I'm a former music teacher and I would love to go on the road with you."

A month later Crow was onstage at the Korakuen stadium in Tokyo, her ears filled with the deafening roar of 75,000 fans. It was the first of 123 concerts over the next 16 months, during which she performed in front of a staggering 4.4 million people. Each night Crow, wearing a bustier and voluminous eighties curls, harmonised with Jackson and shared the limelight on songs like 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You' and 'Man In The Mirror'” It should have been a dream come true.

"Naiveté is such a beautiful thing," says Crow, now 59, a nine-time Grammy winner and one of the most successful artists of her generation. She is speaking on a video call from her home in Nashville, her bedroom walls behind her filled with the art and arcane curios she collects from around the American south. An acoustic guitar lies at rest on the antique couch by her bed. "It was incredible in every way, shape and form for a young person from a really small town to see the world and to work with arguably the greatest pop star," she says. "But I also got a crash course in the music industry."

As the tour progressed, tabloids around the world reported rumours that Jackson was falling for his "sexy backing singer" and even that he had offered her $2m to have his child. In Crow's audiobook memoir 'Words + Music', released last September, she states her belief that these stories were most likely to have been planted by Jackson's manager, Frank DiLeo, "to make Mike look like he was interested in women."

In truth, it was DiLeo who was interested in Crow. He subjected her to sustained sexual harassment throughout the tour, promising to make her a star while threatening that if she refused, or told anyone, he would ensure her career was over before it had really begun. She had never spoken in detail about her experiences with DiLeo prior to 'Words + Music', but two songs on her 1993 debut album made reference to him: "What I Can Do For You', written from the perspective of a powerful abuser, and the stream-of-consciousness 'The Na-Na Song', which includes the defiant couplet: "Frank DiLeo's dong / Maybe if I'd have let him I'd have had a hit song'.

"It's really interesting to go back and revisit some of this old stuff and the experiences that went along with it, and then to compare it with where we are now," says Crow. "To be able to play that stuff about the long bout of sexual harassment I endured during the Michael Jackson tour and to talk about it in the midst of the MeToo movement... it feels like we've come a long way, but it doesn't feel like we're quite there yet."

When the Michael Jackson tour ended in 1989, Crow returned home to her tiny LA apartment and fell into a lengthy period of depression. A high-powered attorney she'd hired told her she should have put up with DiLeo's advances given what he could offer her. From the inside, the music industry didn't look anything like she'd expected.

Billie Jean Video Clip'Billie Jean' Hts 1 Billion Views On YouTube! 10-06-'21

Another landmark figure for the 'King of Pop' has been achieved today! Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean' has passed the billion views on YouTube.

This is the first time for Michael Jackson to get that many views and for a video that was first aired in 1983!

Michael Jackson has now entered a very private club: the Billion View Club. The first member was 'Gangnam Style' in 2012 followed years later by Justin Bieber's 'Baby' in 2015.

Now, all the videos in that club are from an age of digital and to have an artist like Michael Jackson entering the club with a 80s video is a prowess!

A huge thanks to all the Michael Jackson fans who have been working hard to make this happened, from viewing the video to promoting the campaign! Well done all! Michael would have been so proud!
