Media Storm

Okay…Michael Jackson died.  I can’t just ignore that.

He’s the same age as my mom.  I can’t even reign in that fact in my mind, it seems outrageous that they have anything in common.

I grew up in a post-Thriller age, when he started getting paler and his behavior starting getting stranger.  When I became aware of him as a child, even then I thought he was creepy.

I’m not going to talk about his music, I think it’s redundant to call him a legend, that’s obvious.  I think it’s very tragic that he became such a victim of fame.  Just another reason children should not be famous.

Do I believe he ever touched children inappropriately?  I dunno…sadly all child molesters are victims of molestation themselves.  People go from victims to perpetrators because as adults that which was horrifying as a child becomes pleasing.  Thus, they seek to reenact past trauma.  Molester or not, he clearly suffered from many mental issues.

I bet a lot of people still have no idea Farrah Fawcett died too, cause you wouldn’t know it by watching the news.

Ultimately, two people who were both in a lot of pain are now free from it.  That’s the only good thing about this.

    I have mixed feelings about MJ. Obviously, he’s a victim himself but I also think he victimized and I have a hard time forgiving that. It’s not my job to judge him, G-d will do that.

    His music never rocked my world. I respected it but never had any life-altering effects by his music or him.

    I hope he rests in peace, if that’s what is in the cards for him.

    Farrah, beautiful.
    “The Burning Bed” was amazing and one scene is still clear in my mind. They were in the kitchen and she said something that her husband didn’t like and he just backhanded her. It was so shocking to me because I had never seen a man hit a woman and IT WAS JILL MONROE!!!

    Anyhow, I’m glad she had so much love and support at the end of her life.
