You can happily compare Jacko so The Beetles, Nirvana, Elvis, any other act that pretty much changed the course of music to something different.
It seemed like he thought he could genuinely change the world through music, for this reason could be classed as a legend.
He was HUGE for god knows how long, still is in some areas of the world and has a great supportive fan base, therefore he must have been doing something right and can be classed as a world class entertainer.
For these reasons we should think of his death to be a great loss, not exactly mourn like his your family dog, but he deserves a bit of respect.
Whether the pedophilia rumors are true or not.. he still made some STUPID mistakes in his career, had stupid ideas, and tried to do some really stupid things.
Whether he started changing his body and appearance, or if his nose actually fell off in the shower, or it was some illness that made him look the way he is, I don't like him, I don't like his personality much, I don't like his music unless I'm stupidly drunk and feel like listening to cheesy music.
I'm certainly not going to say it's no loss to the world, but it certainly doesn't need all the coverage on media and it certainly doesn't need a world mourning session.
Sorry to his family and friends.
No doubt he will be missed.
Just not by me.
I dont see why people are so upset about peolpe mourning for him. I didn't know him, so I cant say it will greatly affect me, however I do think it is sad. But also it was equally sad to see how he declined so much from his peak.
Let those who wish to mourn their loss do so in peace and quiet as you would expect yourself when the time for you to mourn comes.[/QUOTE]
Absolutely - but 'peace and quiet' doesn't mean weeks and weeks of media coverage.
The choice of similar threads for this thread are almost as amusing as the headlines over at Digital Spy at the moment ('Madonna 'wanted to join Jackson for O2 gig'').
What have I done of course, my life couldn't even compare to that of Michael Jackson.... the 'legend'. Having never done any of the above, surely it's ok to give it a go though!
I've always needed a good role model!
"his idea" ?????
I knew I should have phrased that differently, I wasn't meaning to imply that it was his idea, more that it was an idea he believed in.
It's all good, i'm just in an over-opinionated mood today
Gotta love the bi-polar
Rolling Stones, Led Zep, Beatles, MJ all of them sold millions of records so someone must have liked them the majority seem to lilke all of these as their record sales suggest so I really don't care what the opinions of anyone else as it doesn't affect me. You're right everyone is entitled to an opinion though. Any the fact that the press will be all over this for months afterward will irritate me all the more.
So we shouldn't get you started on whether Transformers 2 is racist or not?
Haven't seen it, fortunately, lol
Do the 'white' bots dress like eminem?
No but apparently the twin Autobots Mudflap and Skids are horrendeous black gangster minstrel stereotypes. A lot of people seem to have taken offense.
Which beings me to a random point, why doesn't this forum have a Movies sub forum?
