The way you make me feel... shocked!

For the past few days since the passing of Michael Jackson, the media but mostly society shocks me once again (and not necessary in a good way).

In a certain way I feel for the passing of MJ but only because he was a human being just like you and me, who had dreams, nightmares, desires and just like many of us fears about life and himself. Besides that I do think he was a good artist and entertainer but lost himself as a real person down the road...

By looking at the million picture online of how his face changed so much during the years, he was definitely a completely different person from his childhood pictures to the most recent ones…

So, I think to myself, if a person can change so much during a lifetime (at least physically) and show so many different aspects of himself with so much controversy (and not necessary good one), how come there are so many fanatics and crazy people moaning over him like they knew him so well and he was such a big part of their lives???I just don’t get it.

I guess I don’t get it because I really don’t have any Idols per Se in my life…

Well, that’s not entirely true, I do have people I look up to and of course there are people that have been a big role model in my life, I believe in God (as I was raised Catholic but have my own interpretation of the creator) but besides my family and friends I cannot think of anybody else that I would moan and suffer over their death, like his fans are acting. I have read that besides all the signs, flowers and many others displays of affection and there are even people camping outside the Neverland Ranch to be at his funeral and honor his their idol, and with this behavior they are giving the media so much to feed on…

So, I think people and specially the media should give the man some rest, let him find the peace and tranquility that he did not have in his life and honor his memory by listening and appreciating his music but do not by worshiping him like a false idol…

On a lighter note… today is Friday, so have a great weekend!!!

Your thoughts are right on target. Michael was beyond idol status and his passing makes the media and public lose all sense of reality. Your wish that they respect his legacy and let hime rest is peace is wonderful but I don't believe it will happen anytime soon. I've spent some time in Cayman, by the way, will drop by to check out your views.
