It had to happen sooner or later, right? Guess they just waited a respectable amount of time before they started saying Michael Jackson was still alive. In case you hadn't heard, earlier this week, folks were saying how they saw MJ around LA.
There are two ways you can look at this. Let's say this is true. That would mean he faked his death, put his friends and family (assuming they weren't in on it) through all the anguish and bereavement, had that elaborate funeral, etc., all just to escape his fame and debt? From what I know about Michael, he wouldn't go through all this. Yes, he would want to escape, but not to this extreme.
On the other hand, the fact that they're saying he's alive further cements his legacy (as if it needed it).
I was thinking about something this morning. What if he indeed isn't dead, but instead was taken by aliens to a far away planet populated by the celebrities who died too soon. You know the place...its where Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, 2Pac, James Dean, Aaliyah, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez, Selena, end even the Crocodile Hunter, as well as a whole mess of others, have all gone, but the aliens that took them want us to believe they're dead.
lol Yeah, I know, that's a bit far fetched...or is it?
It's all fun to think about that, but one thing is for certain, IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON! I'm a big MJ fan, and I would love for i to turn out that he is alive, just kidnapped and hidden away by the mafia or something, only to be replaced by one of his impersonators. However, that isn't the case. People can't let go of this story, especially the media.
I say this as I'm watching Ted Kennedy's funeral and thinking, this guy was a U.S. Senator, and didn't get 1/4 of the coverage MJ (or Anna Nicole, for that matter) received.
I'm not gonna go off on a rant on that, but rather just say that after this week, we shouldn't hear anymore about MJ, except for on occasional reflection. I say that because it would have been his 51st birthday today, as a matter of fact.
We'll see if that actually happens. In the meantime, who wants to come with me to look for this planet? lol
