Michael Jackson - The Death



I was SO sure of it that I will not be putting up an MJ post on my blog. But....

Anyways, here are my views. I have been talking about this in my comments (to Agnel) and on one of the forums I visit. This is basically a compilation of my comments. Once I start yapping, it's difficult for me to shut up.

There will be two posts of just rambling on. So here goes - My views:

It's funny how death changes everything.

Just saw one of the headlines that read - MJ's rehearsals for the upcoming shows SHOWED THE MAGIC WAS BACK. How much do you want to bet - if the guy (god bless his soul) was alive and did the show - we would be reading stuff like MJ totally washed up, pathetic show. It's over for MJ.

I can't wait to die!

From all the blogs I frequent - there wasn't one which ignored this news (not even RGV). I did feel crappy for not putting up a post on MJ on my blog.. but I didn't know what to put up.
  • I was never really a fan.
  • It wasn't my type of music (heal the world, remember the time, beat it...... just not my taste).
  • I am not awed by dance moves (just doesn't do it for me).

There were times I did speak about MJ - but that was during all those controversial court cases. Of course, I was more interested in the legal arguments than the celebrity involved.

I did chuckle when Farah Khan (out of all the people in the world) was giving interviews and saying stuff like 'I touched the king of pop'. Mithun Da saying 'MJ was my Guru' !!!!???

Of course he had a huge fan following. An icon. It's just... err.. I find it disturbing. That's all. It's hard to explain.

It's along the same lines when Pramod Mahajan died and all of a sudden everyone was out talking good about this guy. Even at that point, I had expressed the same thing. I hated Pramod Mahajan when he was alive, and just because he is dead, doesn't mean I have to like him. The hypocrisy of it all gets to me.

When was the last time any of you heard anything good about the 'KING OF POP'. Seriously?

Chuck the over dose or foul play or heart attack theory. I am glad he is dead. Finally some peace for him. If it wasn't child molestation, then it was breach of contracts. If not that, then his bankruptcy crap and his extravagant lifestyle.

When they couldn't come up with any new gossip, they would resurrect the issues of his skin colour and plastic surgeries. If nothing else, then there was always the chimp story.

Probably he enjoyed all the press and the attention - I didn't know him and I don't really care. It's not that I am being insensitive. I am just brutally honest.

If I don't care about something - I don't. And I have no problem in saying so.

Perhaps he thrived on the publicity. May be he craved it.

From a viewers point of view - I found it pathetic. The media fucked him over while he was alive there is a huge difference between reporting and sensationalising. MJ stories in the media did not qualify as investigative journalism. Hell, it didn't even qualify as journalism.

The stories were disturbing when he was alive and are even disturbing now that he is dead - but I am just happy that this is the last of it and there won't be anymore.
