Michael Jackson died. I didn't want to write about it because I don't like doing something that everyone and their Mama is doing. But I have a feeling what I have to say is quite different from others.... First off I'd like to make a disclaimer. It is not my intention to be disrespectful because yes this man is dead and yes he was an extremely influential person in more ways then one but.....I'm so tired of hearing about it!!! There I said it! I'm tired of seeing his videos and hearing everyone talking about it. Death is a part of life and his was very unexpected but he's dead, get over it. Was that too harsh? I don't wanna be mean but when other people die they talk about it a few days, I have a feeling this will be a topic for weeks. Now before I get attacked by MJ fans of course I have to recognize all the things this man has done (Well just a few, I don't feel like going through his whole life lol). -- the first black artist's video on MTV, crazy amount of albums sold, of course dancing, singing, lyrics, videos, philanthropy....on and on and on yes we all know this. So I do respect him for all that he has done ignoring all the many problems he had (He was so cute when he was black with a nose :-( too bad that changed).
It's kinda backwards for me to say I'm sick of it because I understand it completely. People were truly touched by him, I'm just not a crazy fan like that. Of course I love his music and videos too, I just wish the world would move on already. But I guess its too soon.
