… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

So what a shock to wake up to the news that Michael Jackson has passed away (I was going to say kicked-the-bucket but thought that too crude)

Make no mistake, I loved the man. I grew up with his music in the house and all over the place. In our community if you didn’t love his music – YOU in fact, were considered wacko! My kids love him just as much, because obviously, they are exposed to the same Jackson 5 and MJ music we were. Come to my house for a party and there’s bound to be “You Rock My World” or “Thriller” thrown into the mix somehow! lol

I think he was a great artist, but obviously lost the plot somewhere along the line. And I’m sure I don’t have to explain myself at all.

Boo and I were fortunate enough to have seen his one and only live show in JHB years back. I think I was about 6-7 months preggers with the TA then. Ja, its LONG ago, and JA, no boep was going to prevent me from attending that show. And I still feel like a 20-something *winks* no comments please! 

I do not understand though how people can be so emotional over him? I mean really?! He was human, for goodness sakes, he was bound to ..er.. pass away SOMETIME. The fact that he’s only 50 makes no diff, does it? Or am I dizzyingly unfeeling again? People die all the time, right? So what makes him so special? Granted, he is an icon. But still a human one? And accoring to me, he’s lived a very full life indeed.

I bawled my eyes out with Diana, but I was in post natal depression, THAT’s why I cried. For days. I can’t cry this time around. He’s had his life. We lost a great but wacko musician, but we will get over this too

MJ – RIP. I’m glad I bought every single album and DVD you had out there. Now I’m sitting on a goldmine!!

Have a fanflippentastic day, you guys!!!

    Hi Dizzy. Yes it is the end of an era but like you I am not going to have hysterics or hold a vigil for him and I too grew up with his music. Keep warm and have a lovely weekend.
