Daughter to Father: Michael Jackson was the Best Daddy

The most touching moment of Michael Jackson’s tribute came in the last few seconds of the broadcast, when his daughter Paris-Michael effectively silenced any criticism of the King of Pop. The remarks that made us laugh, however, came from Brooke Shields and Smokey Robinson.

      Holy smoke! Smokey has definitely had that face pulled back. Hard.

      No matter what you thought of Michael Jackson, today has ended with the aftermath of eueryone’s death and the end of the story. And as to Peter King and his yammering on the House floor, hey, let those without sin……and in the GOP is that a possibility? More like an improbability!

      “Unlike celebrity, death is real. Celebrity — which Michael Jackson experienced in its purest and perhaps most dangerous form — may be the dominant religion of our times, but it is one that openly sells false gods and offers little lasting solace. Celebrity helps sell lots of magazines and commercial time, but celebrity does not trump blood. Michael Jackson was not just a great artist. He was somebody’s brother, and as such, he deserved a proper send-off.” David Wild, Rolling Stone

      RIP

      My favorite memory of MJ was back in the 1980′s when he became friends with a kid no one else wanted to be near. His name was Ryan White.

      Say what you want about his freaky exploits, the man also did some good on the planet. It’s easy to focus on the bad surgery, and the disturbing child abuse charges, and forget that he coordinated and created many charitable events and causes. I found myself suprisingly moved, and for the first time in a long time, remembered the astounding talent he displayed behind the freak show.

      Sad, but too often true, only in death do we remember the best aspects of a person. However, I also hope the freakshow of his life doesn’t get totally whitewashed by “MJ worship”, because that’s an important lesson he can leave us on the destructive effects of unchecked fame.

      That’s irony. A person who daily tells “fags” (yes, that’s the word the bitch uses) to shut up about their rights and stop bothering obama about civl rights…calling me a class act…someone who says gay people are to blame for their oppression is calling me a class act. I’m honored, really. Oh….c’mere….closer! CLOSER! “SUCK MY BALLS!”

      Obviously funerals are for the living. Everyone handles grief in their own way. But having Paris speak, grief stricken and then the heartfelt clutching of the child by the adult for all the cameras of the world to see ….. well, it’s just overboard voyeurism to me.

      I thought it was important for the kids to say something. Say what you will he was a father to those kids. And if she wanted the world to know that he was her father and she will miss him. then by all means says it. Many people (in the USA) only saw him as a freak, child molester, a performer, an artist. (in that order) Many people around the world only saw him as the King of Pop. I personally met MJ and he was very sweet! It’s good to see the other side of him being a loving father and nothing else! it was an honor to meet him. I will never forget it!

      #19 I Pliss – I do mean this gently; I don’t know if it was important for the kids to speak or not. I’ve never been to a funeral yet where children spoke but I’m open minded enough to know my experiences are not the only valid ones.

      And I understand how fans feel that only the negative side of MJ has been shown for so long (mostly his own doing in my mind) but what I objected to was the “photo op” quality of this. It seems to take advantage of a child’s grief for voyeuristic purposes. What I’m driving at is does every thought need to be broadcast or can and should some things be kept private?

      Another thought Where I live, we have a lot of foreign born people, children are gentle and innocent; if you even say hello to them, they will smile and hide their face in their parent’s side. Granted, they are usually a bit younger than Paris, but they are walking well on their own so their not babies. This is one of the things I was thinking about when I wrote my first post.

      What I’m driving at is does every thought need to be broadcast or can some things be kept private?

      The purpose of that extravaganza yesterday was to repair Michael Jackson’s image so that people would not hesitate to buy all of the crap that is about to be produced over the next 20 – 30 years.

      Michael Jackson liked to sleep with little boys.

      @Thom Freeheart: Last I checked, that’s not a criminal offense.

      Som@7SK: It doesn’t have to be a criminal offense to be weird, inappropriate, and revolting. And it is.

      I don’t believe that any of those parents that were honoring Michael Jackson yesterday would have let their sons sleep in the same bed with that freak.

      Thom, the guy is dead, buried or cremated, with a piece of his brain dissected for tests so either way it’s a moot point. If he was a child molester or not it looks like he destroyed himself with his addictions and any punishment he would’ve received from a legal standpoint was trumped by the death sentence he gave himself.
