Goodbye MJ

Posted on: July 13, 2009

I haven’t written about the death of MJ for a number of reasons.

The main one being how shocked I am at how upset I feel. I still can’t explain it.

I loved MJ while growing up, and my love of dance stemmed from being inspired by Michael Jackson videos. I won many ‘dance a like’ competition!

Listening to the songs that have been on constant rotation since his death has reminded how fantastic he was.

I’ve been disgusted that even in death the media were still trying to paint him as a freak. I have always thought that MJ’s issues made him decide to bleach his skin and jeered along with everyone else when he talked about a skin condition.

Last week, I saw a blog entry that showed that it was in fact the case, and that he tried to stay his natural colour for as long as he could before he decided to go down the depigmentation route.

My first thought was ‘why didn’t the media show this?’ Well of course they wouldn’t, that wouldn’t go along with their wacko jacko portrait.

It makes me sad that his whole life has been spent in the public eye, and I really hope that he is now at peace and watching over his children.

Goodbye Mr Jackson. x x x
