Wako Jacko

So did anyone else see the Michael Jackson special on ABC last night? I watched about a half hour of it and then I had to turn it off because it was too painful to watch. It was like watching someone in slow motion drop off a cliff with pointy sticks waiting to impale him at the bottom. I can't decide whether to feel sorry for him or disgusted. On one hand he is OBVIOUSLY lying about having only TWO plastic surgery operations. On his nose. To help him breath better. Oh and hit those high notes. Now how is that a good lie? I'll give him that he might have the skin disease. I mean that could happen, but his face is so different from even when he did the Bad album that it can't merely be that his skin lost its pigmentation and he changed his nose, oh and because he went through puberty (because people's faces get distorted by puberty all the time).

Pictoral example:

Young 1971 Michael
The Cutness of Thriller
Little work done not so bad
Is this Michael or Latoya?
Good God Man! Is there a human under there?

And so if he's lying about the plastic surgery, it's not that big a leap to think that he's lying about what's going on when he's got kids sleeping in his bed. I mean some of the statements he made are just plain creepy, ahem, "We go to sleep. I put the fireplace on. I give them hot milk, you know, we have cookies. It's very charming. It's very sweet. It's what the whole world should do." Maybe if he obviously told the truth about something everybody wouldn't be so inclined to believe he's abusing all these kids.

And yet even while watching the small part of the program and knowing he's committing media suicide I can't help but feel sorry for him. I mean he obviously had a horrible childhood, and all his craziness seems to stem from it. And last night he said something about how he just wants to comfort and love children. It made me think that since he had a jackass for a father and seems to have lacked the affection that he needed while growing up that maybe he's trying to give to others what he didn't have. It made me pause and think he's being sincere, but then all the other weird shit he does gets in the way. Like making his children wear veils anytime they go out in public. And even his children's conception/nonexistant mother is weird. And wanting to adopt two children (a boy and a girl) from every continent (Who is he Noah?).

I loved Michael Jackson when I was younger. I made my dad buy me the thriller album and used to scare my sister by playing the Vincent Price voice over again and again. I even had a poster of him on my wall. (Cute Jackson, not the plastic one) And then there was just this downward spiral where everytime he was seen again he looked different and acted even weirder. sigh. It's such a shame too because now no one can even really appreciate any new music he comes out with because we're all so distracted by his lifestyle. I just don't get it. And I think I've decided, I feel sorry for him. Unless he really is hurting kids, then Bad Man!

i didn't see it...but i did hear about it on the radio this morning.
i just feel sorry for the man. i think the f---d up childhood plus the instant money & fame (which can turn even a normal person's head) probably all added up to making him completely confused about reality.
the put-downs from his dad make him hate his face and always want to hide it behind a mask and child abuse and being near his older brothers getting laid on road trips while he was only 7 or 8 probably make him confused about sex in general.
but yes. if he did molest those kids....Bad Man. Bad.

I agree. plasto-man is just tired now.
I mean so what if his dad was a b****-man?
that gives him no rite to "love" these children like this. and if you ever find out mjs e-mail address tell him he sucks and if he wants to
debate on this subject he can e-mail me at gohill80@hotmail.com but i'm only 12 so he better not pull any of this second father shit

you tell 'em, hilary! btw, you posted at 1:56...shouldn't you be in school?

Hillary, don't you mean, "this second father s***"? It's a little early in the day for that kind of thing.

And don't listen to Erica. School is for P***ies. What you need is a job.

You guys are all assholes! evil people!

Michael Jackson is a great and caring person. His music and dancing is still amazing! Michael has done nothing bad to you for you to hate him. Have some respect, he is a legend, very talented and has enspired so many people.

Dont listen to what the media has to say about Michael. A lot of the news is false! They try to make people hate him. They are jelous punks!

Posted by: FanSinceBorn on April 27, 2003 03:29 PM

Jealous of Michael?

That's like wanting to be the sliced-up Thanksgiving turkey!

That's like wanting to have a "successful" career that leaves you oweing more money than you ever made, desperately trying to make some money/hype by pimping bizarre home video footage.

That's like wanting to be snuggly wuggly with young children, any children, when usually people reserve their affection to people close to them, who are close for a reason other than to snuggle.

I don't hate him. I'm not jealous. (Lord, no!) I'm just tired of the freak show. Not that I mind harmless freaks. But is he harmless? If I were his kid, I would be saying, a la Adam Sandler in "The Denise Show": STOP SMOTHERING ME!!!

there's just no way that doing that makes things easier to read OR easier to type. i really believe that that particular spelling of "sedation" could only be dreamed up by someone sitting down with the correct spelling and trying out variations until it reached a specified threshold of bewilderingness. that kind of dedicated work takes time, i tell you!

what kind of commercial involves lighting someone's face on fire at the top of a stairway, anyway?

Posted by: dianna on September 24, 2003 09:28 AM

it was a short-lived marketing strategy which attempted to sell the idea that pepsi is really, really flammable. the tagline was: "burns in your hair! not in your hand." during this period, pepsi's trademark recipe included a small amount of lighter fluid. the signature great taste was not affected.

I love these people that comment trying to make a legitimate argument to what I've stated who have no spelling abilities at all. I'm sorry it has offended your grammer sensibilities again Dianna. Silly people.

Kristen - I giggle, loudly.

Posted by: nuala on September 24, 2003 04:24 PM

my delicate grammar sensibilities! they are so offended! woe! alas!

i think that years from now anthropologists will cite the internet as the single biggest cause of an entire generation's lack of punctuational abilities. for more on that:


you don't remember when michael jackson lit hisself on fire? it had something to do with an exploding light, and falling sparks. it also *sparked* this childhood rhyme:

i pledge allegiance to the flag
michael jackson is a [expletive deleted]
pepsi cola burned him up
now he's drinking 7-up

thank you, thank you very much.

that is brilliant. i think we as a society really don't give kids enough credit for inventive horribleness.

Posted by: dianna on September 24, 2003 10:04 PM

I even remember that rhyme!

Michael Jackson is the main man. I think he is wicked, great and 1 hell of a singer and dancer. My all time favourite Michael Jackson song is Ben when he was just little Michael Jackson. "I love you Michael"

I think Michael has become deranged over the years. As the face got worse so did his personality. Would you send your child to Michael Jackson's Neverland. No! Not unless you experienced the Michael Jackson sleep over kit. www.liquidgeneration.com Anyways we have all seen the pictures over the years, we all know his is demented. We have known this. How many pop singers do you know wear a little white glove and grab their tiny nuts on stage and yell "Hee Hee Heee". I thought it was funny when he lit his hair on fire, I was about 6. Maybe Michael would like prison. Put him in the cell with Tiny and Bubba. Michael will be in never never land sticking dick up the old ass hole! If Michael is infact is not guilty, then clean up your act Michael. Change your clothes, get a face job to make you look normal, stuff a sock in your pants, and act like a man! You are a spectical of our society as the result of your fame. If you are guilty, your gonna make a lot of hard up prisoners happy that most likely are number one fans, so Michael dont drop the soap!
