Michael Jackson has Died

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8119993.stm

Even though I’ve never been a particular fan of his music, its still a sad loss. What really gets me is how the media criticised and hounded him for so many years and now he’s dead they’re calling him the king of pop. They’re so shallow.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.

    You’re quite right
    Hi Mel! Although I was never a fan of Michael Jackson’s myself, I liked quite a lot of his songs, and, in spite of all his strangeness and controversial behaviour, his death leaves a big gap in the pop world, because there was no-one in it quite like him. But I agree with you that the media are being two-faced about him. Admittedly there were mentions of some of the scandals about him in the tributes to him which I heard this morning, and it’s pretty certain that he didn’t commit suicide due to media pressure on him, but, whether a famous person gets bad publicity or not when they’re alive, they’re suddenly treated as a hero when they die. And that was certainly the case with Michael Jackson today. It’s tragic that he should die just before he was about to make a comeback with concerts in London. His fans must be grieving now, not to mention those who knew him best, his family and friends I mean.
