I'm pretty sure that most people are going to be blogging about this, if they don't...well Facebook has it covered.
I am not a Michael Jackson fan, I never was. Not even in the third grade when all of the other little girls were. We all know that Lionel Richie is the one that I stay true to. I am a huge Lionel Richie fan, it's no secret that I was and always will be.
I remember the Moon Walk during Billie Jean, Wow! So cool! (please insert my sarcasm)I'm pretty sure that mimes (such as Marcel Marceau) had been doing it for years.
But more so, I remember sitting at Stephanie Cooks house watching Thriller over and over again. I had nightmares nearly every night because of that video. That, I must say was pretty amazing.
One of my friends on Facebook wrote;
"feels bad for the family of Farrah Fawcett. Not only for their loss, but in less than a day there's bigger news."How true, how true.
I'm not a hater! I understand that he was the 'King of Pop.' I get that he was amazingly talented and truly defined the 80's. Not only in music, but in style and dance and video etc....But, what I don't understand is why is everybody mourning so? Don't you feel like we should have been mourning the loss of Michael Jackson about 18 years ago when his life started to unfold? From the vitaligo, plastic surgery, alleged molestations, drug abuse...here, I'll just give you a link to The Smoking Gun.
Unfortunately, the truth is....it is a day in history that will not be forgotten, it will fall under the question of "Where were you when......" Like these;
You found out about the terrorist attacks on 9/11?
Princess Dianna was killed?
You found out JFK was assassinated?
The Space Shuttle Challenger blew up?
Man first walked on the moon?
The Berlin Wall came tumbling down?
Hurricane Katrina hit?
Martin Luther King was assassinated?
I'm sorry, but does it seem as significant?
I will always remember where I was when I found out that Michael Jackson died. Sitting in front of my computer reading status updates on Facebook. More specifically, my Sister-in-law LuJayne's;
