okayimhere and Gazrok,
I liked Micheal Jackson in his early days and yes, talent was evident...same with Madonna...I liked watching/singing along to her early works as
well...No denying that talent can be present even while acting like an arse. Heck, some of my fav rockers are guilty of "the move". Perhaps I have
gotten too far off track relevant to this thread/topic. Talent is fine...exhibitionism is something to question and ponder. Heck, I liked MJ so much,
I even did an oil painting of him with his infamous "glitter glove" and glam costume from an album shot. I am being misunderstood again. I don't hate
those performers but I just don't understand why they do what they do.
Sure, it may be all about the "buzz" and media attention and for publicity...I get that. Surely, there are more important things in this world to
ponder and discuss tho. Less "buzz" needs to be paid attention to, relevant to such things, and more "chatter" and "buzz" paid attention to the human
condition, the state of the world...starving, abused, children and kids suffering from the ravages of war. While folks are concerning themselves about
the media garbage, kids and other people all over the world are suffering. Wars are taking place and some poor kids somewhere have a lot more to worry
about and think about than some performer doing their thing.
I never said I hated any of the performers...I just did not understand their dealy. Folks have explained the so-called reasons...I get it relevant to
all of that...I just don't "get" why folks give a hoot. I guess that is why the human condition is what it is today. Sure, we can't worry about such
every minute but we should give it all more pause for thought instead of defending such ridiculous stuff when the world is going to "H" in a hand
basket and future kids right along with it. If folks can't "get" that and continue to worry about the "buzz and the reasons for it...well...sad state
of affairs. I am done responding here.
I never named specific performers relevant to their talents...it was a generalization in reference to "some" performers, not necessarily the ones
mentioned in the topic. We all know there are "some" that fit the bill....not all. Like I said, I liked MJ and did an oil painting of him when he was
young and I could see he had an innocence about him back then and a talent as well. I thought Madonna was pretty and cool back in the early days. It
just seemed to me, they seemed to change as they got older and that is confusing to me. Folks would have loved to go see their shows without the
"extra" stuff involved, that's all.
If anyone here wants to think of me as a mean, prudish ole hag just because I don't understand something...o.k.
We may never know the truth
relevant to MJ and at this point, it is all moot. He's dead. The world is a mess...no one will ever know the truth about MJ.

PS. My MS is killing me today with lotsa sympt/pain so if I am being a"pain" because of it, sorry...not in a very good mood. Perhaps I should stop
the "forum" thing. Blessings to all regardless.

If "Buzz" is such a powerful thing. than perhaps we should all use it for more postive reasons and outcomes to benefilt the world in general...not to
benefit pop stars.
