Thats the trouble we have as a society these days, we place so much pressure onto a singular individual for something like MJ for his singing talent
that the media think they shouldn't have any kind of privacy.
The MSM thinks that because they are a 'celebrity' they should be watched 24/7 as 'someone' may be interested.
They get paid stupid amounts of money and then feel the need to waste shedloads of it, either by sniffing it up their noses, wasting on fast cars,
hookers, payoffs for touching up kids ( apparently) the 'celebrity' needs to keep working so the manager can have his share of the pie, so much so
that the celeb needs 'leisure pharmaceuticals' to keep working .
If we gave these people some time off then maybe these celebs would be able to get some order into their lives. Get a break, but when celebs are so
'popular' according to the media then all kinds of hysteria settles in around them, whether its a stalker or a legion of 'adoring fans' who in my
opinion need to have a reality check, this celeb may give shows they can attend, they may like his music even but the celeb aint wanna get any closer
to the public is he/she/they?
Sure mourn the fact that someone has died but tehn do go overboard, by traveling halfway across the world wailing and crying , my real annoyance is
the fact that 'fans' moan and blub about how their idol has died, idol? IDOL? they liked his music big deal, I liked some of his tracks , but I sure
as hell aint gonna cry myself to sleep over the loss. People die every minute of every day, do we cry for them? no.
So why do we cry for MJ or any other celeb for that matter?
Because the media want us to feel sadness , well Boof*ckingHoo. There ya go. I'm all cried out for MJ.
Its all a media publicity stunt anywaythat cost a 'celeb his life', to keep us distracted while the moneyhoarders stick the knife in our backs and
twist, there are people losing their homes, businesses and families but MJ is dead , cry for him instead.
Billie Jean aint growing on me though although its a good track, I'll listen to it but when teh radios blow every MJ track for non stop 24 hours
then I tend to get annoyed .....
