Of course it was odd.

I still haven't seen video of it, but from what I've heard about it, it was weird.

I think he acted without thinking about what he was doing, but I don't blame him for it.

Haven't you ever seen a little kid who was so cute you just wanted to squeeze them until they died?

I think it was really weird.

While that is a rather morbid description, I agree. Some kids are just so cute; it is hard to contain yourself.

But that was still kind of odd, you know? He could have kissed his forehead, or hug him, or do a hundred other things that didn't make him look like Michael Jackson...

The act was a bit weird, but nothing to be worried about in my opinion. Although, comparing it to stroking a cat? Yeah, that's wacko.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/16/06 - 11:58:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that is a bit off the wall.

And then he compared to stroking a cat? That's a fairly common practice. I don't see many people running up to little boys to kiss their tummies.

If I were the boy I'd be traumatized.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 3:46:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds really strange to me. It isn't like he's a pedophile or anything, but it was a rather tacky gesture. There are more tactful ways to demonstrate affection.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 4:07:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, I saw that on TV, sick.
I don't think he'd like it very much if a bunch of 8 year old boys came up and kissed him on his belly.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 4:50:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
He should have just given him a bit of a hug, pat on the shoulder or maybe even a kiss on the top of the head. The stomach thing is quite odd...
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 4:56:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
Strange peoples.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 6:30:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, although it seems that instead of questioning his governable behaviour the press jumps on a stomach kiss. Seems like us Brits arent the only ones with tabloids.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 7:02:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
It was a bit odd, especially the way he rolled up the kid's shirt before kissing him. Still, I don't think it was anything more than a strange gesture.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 7:21:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
I haven't see it, but it does seem a little odd.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 8:19:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
^^ Same here.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 10:41:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
hmm... is it wierd that michael jackson slept with little boys?
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 11:39:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
It seem a little strange to me.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 11:39:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
seemed*
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 11:56:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, it's a little weird.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 4:12:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course it's weird! Blimey, that child must be traumatised!!
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/17/06 - 4:13:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I worry for the poor kid though.

"The most powerful man in my country stroked me, and then kissed my belly."

He's going to have some problems when he grows up.

The only time I could see the justified would be if the little kid said (in Russian, of course) something like "I have a boo-boo on my tummy. Will you kiss it better?" But even then, I would think the, uh... professional, normal response would be "Why don't you let your mommy kiss it better?" or something along those lines.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/1/06 - 4:58:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it's really odd. But I think he shouldn't have did it because of the media, and how abusive they can be.

Who cares it was just a kiss on the stomach. The media makes the biggest deal out of the smallest things
