Yes… it is sad that Michael Jackson died.Â Yes… he was a legend in the music industry.Â Yes… the image that he held (please note the past tense) will be missed.
The fact is that the Michael Jackson that died is not the same person that I used to listen to when I was growing up.Â In fact, in the last several years what has MJ really done or accomplished except become some kind of circus display or curiosity for the media to chase around.Â I have to think that even though his family still loved him because he was a part of the family, he was probably not high on their invite list for birthday parties and social gatherings.
When you look at his career, however, his success does overshadow his flakiness, but only just barely and then only if you took the time to see everything he did.Â There is an entire generation of people now that will only know him at the reclusive nutcase with the masked children, freakish face and a long drawn out court case involving pedophilia.Â Whether the allegations in that case were true or not is for the historians and the lawyers to figure out.Â But when a charge like that is leveled at a person, even if it is false, it is hard to get away from.
I have no remorse for MJ and how he died.Â You see… when you do as many things to your body, even if you think it is for the better, you are weakening it.Â When you look at all the work he had done to his face and all the treatments he was having done to try and live longer and stay younger looking, you have to understand that it is hard on the system.Â I see no difference in what Michael did to himself than that of what a drug addict or a person who has to keep getting piercings and tattoos… then eventually dies of a drug overdoes or septicemia.Â MJ wore his body out and it failed him.Â While we will have to see what the coroner says about this, I have to think that I am not too far of f the mark.
I do hope that he rests in peace, but I have no doubt that he had a hand in putting himself there.Â So you will find no remorse, pity or tears for his loss from me.
If I have offended anyone with this, then I do hope you get over it.Â These are my opinions and I will not apologise for them.
