She said:

“I’ve had a thousand accusations hurled at me that are not true. So my attitude when people tell me things about people is, ‘Can you prove it?”’

The singer believes that, although the victims were recounting their story, nothing can assure the world that they weren’t lying about it. Also, she wonders at times what pushes people to do things like that.

“So I always say, ‘What’s the agenda? What do people want out of this? Are there people asking for money? Is there some kind of extortion thing happening?”

Madonna wants to be free of a lynch-mob mentality and give Michael Jackson the benefit of the doubt until proven guilty. This decision could be a result of the bond she shared with the late singer. He was her date to the 1991 Oscars.

Indeed, everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and Michael Jackson should be no exception. Madonna shouldn’t be criticized for having such a belief!
