he shaped what music is today
like it or not music influences a great deal of the world
proof of that is as simple as the economics in music, theres a great deal of money in that area
you ask why make a big deal about him?
same reason people still talk about elvis, biggie, pac, the beatles, etc
only thing is MJ was bigger then any of em
maybe a better question is why do we spend so much time and shine so much spotlight on so many other stupid ass things that have a hell of a lot less
impact than this man has had
Right, but his death doesn't really change all that. And it's not people that are just talking about him that I do not understand.
What I don't understand is all the people who overly emotional about it. I didn't understand it with Kurt Cobain either, and that happened when I
was a teen and many of the other kids I knew were all bent out of shape. Nirvana is one of my favorite bands and has been for awhile. I thought it
sucked when he died, but I didn't and still don't understand peoples emotional attachments to stuff.
To me, they are simply mourning their own loss, not the loss of that person. Like when Cobain died, I was at a loss of any future music, and that
kind of sucked, but that was my loss and had nothing to do directly for his loss. As I didn't actually know him, his loss to me was no different
than any other stranger dieing.
I also do not get people who faint and go all nuts over meeting someone famous either. I just couldn't imagine putting such importance on a person,
and would imagine it to be a nightmare scenario if people did that me. I wouldn't feel "loved", I'd feel "used". How could they love me if
they never knew me, all they loved was what I provided for them. If I hadn't provided that for them, then I would have been just like any other
I simply do not get it. Seems wrong to me.
