Posts Tagged ‘Michael Jackson

Seriously?  Seriously?!

Yesterday, you’re “big thing” was that you had “secret Michael Jackson home movies..” and were showing “preview” clips of him doing the Thriller dance with Webster.. showing off a llama.. and hanging out with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs..

Then.. you go to your “feature story” and you didn’t show us anything we hadn’t seen through out those preview clips that you were showing throughout the entire show..

Why do you tease like that? 

That’s not cool at all..

And then you start teasing us about tomorrow’s episode about Michael’s appearance with the Reagans during the “drug-free” campaign that President Reagan was so adamant about.. and all these wild, outrageous stories about Joe Jackson’s love child, and Michael’s gay past.. yadda yadda..

C’mon.

He’s DEAD!!

What does it matter anymore?  Really?  Are all these stories going to just make him so mad that he has to come back to life to defend himself?!

What are you trying to achieve by featuring all these stories about a dead guy?

Have you no respect for dead people? 

Seriously.. leave him alone already.. there are many people still mourning the loss.. and you still inundate us with all these outrageous stories.. think of the family.. think of the children involved..

Think.. just think!

I saw the Michael Jackson memorial yesterday on television.

I cried so much.

It was a beautiful celebration of his life.. his works.. his talent.. his fame.. just him.

The performances were heartfelt… their eulogies and memories were heartbreaking..

I totally felt all their pain from this whole situation..

His brave young daughter said her most heartfelt feelings about her father.. it made me cry like a baby..

His family.. brothers.. sisters.. parents.. children.. sat in the front row.. none came as “The Jacksons”.. they all came.. as.. “The Jacksons” a family mourning the loss of their beloved family member.. I thought it was totally put together nicely… solemly.. and respectfully..

Everything the King of Pop deserves..

Yesterday, Michael Jackson died.  

He was 50 years old, and had three young children.

He was an icon of the 80’s.  I mentioned to my friends that he owned the 80’s.. but my friends were correct in stating that he WAS the 80s..

I have tapes of me, at 3 years old, singing songs like “Beat it” and “Billie Jean.”

I learned how to moon walk.. which I tried to do last night.. and well.. my knees aren’t what they used to be.. so.. it was more like a “moon limp.”

I learned to appreciate his talent at a young age.. sang all his songs.. felt passionate about the social issues he was passionate about..

It is an honor to grow up in the “era of Michael Jackson.”

His recent past doesn’t reflect the amount of talent he possessed.  Nor did it reflect the impact he had on music and dance today. 

Justin Timberlake, Usher, Chris Brown, and all the other young men with the cool dance moves wouldn’t be where they are today if they had not tried to emulate Michael Jackson at some point in their lives..

Many have tried.. and all have failed.. to reach the amount of success he has..

He will be missed.. his music.. and his legacy will live on..

And hopefully.. people can look past the controversy.. and see him for the talent he truly was..
