What does Jonathan have to say?



Love or hate...everyone had fascination with Jacko

jackson1I can't say that I loved all of Michael Jackson's music.  I liked a lot of it, and own some of it, but I don't regularly listen that much anymore.  However, I have paid close attention to Jackson as a person throughout the years. I've always been fascinated with his strange habits, but also didn't want to simply dismiss him as a freak.  Actually, he was a freak.  He became famous as a child and became bigger than life worldwide.  Sure, there are plenty of world famous people, but no one as big as him. I can't imagine what that would really be like.  Sting seems to have handled it.  So has Madonna.  Paul McCartney does just fine too.  Why was it different for Jackson?  Was it because he never really had a childhood?  Was it because he literally could not go in public without a complete mob scene taking place? I remember seeing David Bowie once at a restaurant in Miami.  He was with jackson2Iman and they were eating at a table.  People were looking at them, but they were able to have a meal without the entire restaurant going crazy.  That was never a possibility for Jackson.  What is it like to not be able to go outside by yourself in public...ever.  It might make you a little crazy.  By no means am I saying that makes it okay to take advantage of children.  However, I'm not really ever sure if Jackson really did horrible things to kids or if he really was just a kid trapped inside an adult and that the only people he felt comfortable around were children. I'll also never understand all the plastic surgery.  What was he running from?  Why was he so desperate to change his look?  We'll probably never really know the answers to any of these questions.  jackson3The only thing I do know is that you have to have been one talented person to be recognized around the world for good or bad like Michael Jackson was for the last 30 years.

I'm very grateful to everyone who helped me move on. It's sad and surprising to see Sam Lyons go. My wife was even voting for him.

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
