Alright... call me the Grinch, or the Angry Black Man - I don't care. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I just don't understand what all the hoopla about Michael Jackson dying is for. I mean, I understand that a great artist passed away. It's not like he was murdered... dude had health issues on top of countless and unnecessary surgeries to his mug. It's just crazy that everyone is claiming this to be the saddest day of their life, and people crying, and people forgot that this man TOUCHED KIDS! He was a great artist. Made some dope music, influenced people like Usher, Ne-Yo, Omarion, and Ginuwine. And could dance like no other... But the dude TOUCHED KIDS! He had a Monkey named Bubbles, and a kid named Blanket. He's the same guy that felt that it was okay for a 45 year old man to sleep in the bed with 13 year old boys.
Go to the 1:00 mark if you don't recall.
I liked Mike's music a whole lot, but I can't wait for everyone to cry and mourn the same way when R. Kelly dies (the other pervert). Too many people tend to overlook the wrong doings of celebrities; whether true accusations or not, way too easily. I don't care if Mike really touched those kids or not, but after multiple accusations and multiple out of court settlements... You tell me one person who would have left their child with Mike to play for a day. I didn't think so. Maybe we can get an honest statement from Emmanuel Lewis one day. Hell, Mike should have been on someone's Public Sex Offender list if you ask me. At some point we have to hold the people we put up on these pedestals accountable for something.
You can call me a Michael Jackson hater all you want... it's just funny how everyone had this self-centered notion that Michael Jackson was invincible. I mean just because you live in a hyperbolic chamber doesn't make you immortal. He was a great artist, but a troubled person/thing/it. I mean the dude TOUCHED KIDS for God's sake!!! I would have given him and Robert Kelly the chair two times for that. Fry they asses.
Twitter's server was down temporarily because of all the twitter messages of people crying and mourning. I said it once, and I'll say it again... I empathize for Mike's family, but I do not have sympathy for them. No man, sane or insane, should be sleeping with, touching, kissing, or playing with little boys. Ok, and if the molesting stuff isn't true... He was still a disturbed man. Mike's gone now just the same way as Isaac Hayes, Rick James, and Marvin Gaye. Now go and make yourself a mixtape of these 4 cats and holla at me tomorrow with some real news. That was my vent for the evening. Let's see the world shut down on Easter next year for Jesus' Resurrection Day.
