OK folks, I don't normally rant...but I have to as I have just had enough.
Michael Jackson is NOT a hero. He was a great entertainer. His songs are great (I have routines to lots of them, Thriller, The Way You Make Me Feel, etc). I enjoyed and will enjoy his music.
BUT, he's also a creepy creepy weirdo who got seriously into drugs and being even weirder with kids that were alone in his house with him, um...GROSS!
So, pray tell, WHY is ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and all the other major news outlets giving him MORE press than when the Pope died? He is a celebrity for crying out loud, he's dead, move on. Stop being weird and sobbing in the street. For goodness sake people, it is not THAT news worthy!
I will probably get hate comments for this post and I don't even care. He was an entertainer. He didn't cure cancer. He didn't change the world. Maybe the world of music, but he didn't change the world, end hunger, violence, strife, government injustices...I just don't see it.
I am not trying to get up on my high horse, for I have no horse and don't think I am high and mighty (my favorite show is Gilmore Girls people!) I just am sickened that major news stations are sending reporters to the Staples center to report on his memorial when there is actual NEWS going on!
Ok, I'm done. A fun preppy post will come later.
