Few people -- except for outright sociopaths -- want to be the monster in the story. The more heinous their actions, the stronger a person's investment in making excuses. People can tie themselves in the most intricate knots to justify doing something wrong or to rationalize why what they're doing isn't wrong at all.In his defenses, he had always made out like he was nothing but pure innocence in that he had no designs upon these children, that he was just an overgrown child, who just happened to enjoy sleepovers.
So I'm sure Michael Jackson was lying as blatantly to himself as he was to everyone else. The mind can hold different and conflicting realities and pull up the most convenient and acceptable one as needed, to fit the current situation. It's one of those "amazing human tricks!" at which our species excels.
