Happy Birthday Michael
As much as it pains me to link to the Daily Mail, I was rather intrigued by their article on Michael Jackson turning 50. They have two pictures of him, one of him today and one of what he may have looked like had he not opted for shed loads of surgery. Interesting.
It’s sad really. I recall a conversation from a few days ago with my younger sister. At aged sixteen you’d think the whole Worship Jackson hysteria would have bypassed her but no, she was telling me how her dream in life is to see him live. “I think I’d cry,” she said and umm, I may have agreed…
We then talked about how when he dies it won’t be as big a deal as it should be. I mean come on, he’s a musical genius who’s passing would have been akin to that of Elvis but not now. I fear that his life may just be celebrated with cheap puns in the tabloids and the painful dissection of a “weirdo’s” life.
Oh well, as long as I still enjoy the music right?
