I’m sorry. Ican’t work up a tear for Michael Jackson. I just can’t.
Yes, he was an enormously talented singer and even though I don’t dance myself, I surely appreciate his talent for dance. Even I can’t deny him that.
But there are people who help this world by leaving it, and I believe he is one. It’s my own distorted lens that I’m looking through, and I realize that, but I still feel it strongly. My heart is not broken. I don’t understand people who are LITERALLY crying right now. I don’ t doubt the depth and sincerity of their feelings, but I sure as hell don’t share them.
Neither of us are wrong, I think.
