On Michael Jackson’s 50th, AOL Keeps it Classy

michael-jackson-changes-z-200a082608.jpg"What does Michael Jackson make you think of?" AOL's PopEater polls it's readers, "His music, his plastic surgery, the scandals, or other?" Well, it appears they aren't really giving them a fair choice, as they have a photo gallery chronicling his "50 Faces in 50 Years." Good heavens! Not that I'm a stan for MJ (I reserve that behavior for Janet, who's about one can of Jesus Juice away from being just as loco), but could his plastic surgery be an easier mark? The topic isn't so unavoidable that there can't be discussions about everything else. Maybe I'm being a little too generous and self-righteous today. To their credit, they didn't say he looked like the ghost of Joan Crawford, which is admirable. However, it would be nice if, on the man's birthday, everyone could say something positive about Michael Jackson. Then tomorrow we can go back to calling him the lovechild of Mickey Mouse and Casper.

    This was just too funny. Thriller and Bad and Dangerous are my favorite albums of his. How's that for positive? How about whenever, as a kid, I heard "Billie Jean" and him singing the line..."she's just a girl who says that I am the one...but the kid is not my son" and seeing the video where the bedsheets were rolling in the wind and the woman sliding from the bed and through the room and me thinking (as a kid now) "what the heck is going on here? what is he talking about, he's the 'one'?" LOL. Ahhh, to be young and innocent. LOL. That video was magical and so was Thriller and pretty much all of the videos from the records I mention. Also, how about this: I used to STARE at the "Thriller" album cover...STARE thinking Michael is so effin' cute! And look at his wrist! Those veins popping out...and ooooh, that's a black panther (or was it a tiger haha) and oooh, he's laying in this nice suit and he looks so comfortable just lying there all SEXY.....(I'm freakin' 7 years old thinking this man is sexy...I didn't even know what sexy was!) To this day when I hear those old records I am put back in that place and time. He was magical IS magical; his legacy will forever be.

  2. This isn't surprising. But those who are for MJ, myself included, know where we stand, as do those who just want to focus on the negative. Not that MJ isn't an odd guy, but his music is still the baddest and best out there, so here's to MJ.-QH
