Hi everyone! *takes a bow*
I'm a new member, freshly joined and especially looking forward to sharing thoughts/feelings/opinions on the wonderfully exceptional person we all know as Michael Jackson.
Anyway, my name is Danielle and I feel that Michael has contributed more to this world than most people these days give him credit for. We're just the lucky ones who have happened to gain such insight. ;) He's accomplished an amazing sense of creativity and expression during his life so far, and has my unconditional admiration and support.
This is really all I have to say for now, I hope to get to know (and interact) with you all eventually.
<3 you, Michael.
I'm a newbie. My name is Cass, 15, Philadelphia. I've always listened to Michael, but it never really hit me until the past week how much I liked him.
Well, I already liked him before I saw it, but I saw the Behind the Music of his about a week ago. And it really gave me more of a perspective (sp?) of his hectic life. I can see people's points to that he is crazy or something. But, as most people know- I like weird things and people. Also, I see things and people differently than other people do. Very differently.
His life was in itself very crazy. He was a shy kid, and never really came out of his shell until he was in his mid 20's. (TY VH1 for the info.) And he did never really have any time to mature or grow as a person. This explains his love of childhood.
And, I think that your childhood is the best time of your life. You're sheltered from the evil in the world. Like, I grew up in the early 90's. I never knew it was about grunge music, rap battles and really bad fashions. I mean, I did get a pair or two of jellies, but still.
So, I think he is a genius and a hero for people. For him to hold the innocence of childhood, is inspiring.\
About his looks- If he thinks that he is beautiful or handsome, then let him be. People always say, "Don't care what other people think." Well, we're the side that says stuff that he doesn't care about. Maybe that is his thoughts of it. Everyone has seen worse than that. And he was harassed about the way he looked when he was younger, so it probably ate at him. He is the idea of beauty now.
And I did have a dream the other night, which I'd like to share:
We were back on the cruise, well..for a bit of the dream. I walk into this like...party hall and there was someone getting married. Then, after it, was a like..circus setting and Michael Jackson was performing. Then, after he was done, everyone just left, but he was still there. And so was I. I told him how I admired him so much. But, the twist was that he was in his youth. Like...20's. So, I tried to tell him how scared I was about what was going to happen, and try to tell him what was going to happen. But, I just started to cry.
It was weird. I want to see him again, in my dreams. I want to go back.
I hate this. Everyone keeps on telling me that it's wrong. I'm trying to stay with my standing here, but it's tough. There's so many people that want to tear us down. But, we have to stay strong. Stay with the idea of innocence, the idea that we made on our own. Don't let others influence us! STAY STRONG!
