Michael Jackson – What His Life Really Meant

Michael Jackson - 1958 to 2009

Michael Jackson - 1958 to 2009

So, what happens to us after we die? Well, if we were any good we would have ten albums in the Top Ten at the same time. We would be on the cover of nearly every  newspaper in the world and we would be the subject of countless blogs. The news of our death would cause the big TV networks and small ones to dump their regular programming to carry the event. People would gather in large numbers at our home and the hospital where we died.  We would have the most popular, currently watched videos on YouTube and our music played all day on the radio. Our death would cause shock, sadness but a flood of happy memories. We would be idolized and our questionable side put into perspective. We would cause the World to stop dead in its tracks and celebrate our life rather than mourn. If we were any good, people would be singing our songs to fill an emptiness they can’t hide.

I suppose it is only after he died Michael Jackson knew what his life really meant.

  2. WOW….Very well said. I think MJ must have had one of the most tortured existences ever; having millions “love” him, but few “know” him.

    I really hope he is at rest now….He deserves it after going and going for over 40 years.

    Sidebar – That tiny smiley face in the top right corner of your blog is a bit disturbing in a strangely funny way lol.

    • ennekaycee, thanks for dropping by and I agree Michael Jackson was a tortured soul. But we make celebrities and we break them. It’s almost like they are our toys.

      The jep pic could be a bit…troubling 🙂


    1. Excessive wealth doesn’t bring us happiness.

    2. Life is filled with ups and downs – you may be rich and famous at one point in time, and poor and notorious at another.

    3. No matter how rich or famous you become, you are still very much imperfect, still as human as anyone else.

    4. The physical can never transcend the spiritual, not even the mental. (Read The Tragic End Of Michael Jackson by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1245924935526&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull)

    5. We have to help ourselves before others can help us. (Read Michael Jackson: The Changing Faces of A Pop Superstar by Anita Singh: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/michael-jackson/5650647/Michael-Jackson-the-changing-faces-of-a-pop-superstar.html)

    6. Don’t over-trust celebrities and personalities – they may not be as nice as they appear to be.

    7. Death often comes unexpectedly.

    8. Take good care of your loved ones before it’s too late.

    9. Why fight so hard, when we leave as we came, alone and empty-handed?

    10. In the end, only kindness matters.

  4. I like what u wrote Aka and what udaka said too. Poor Michael hopefully rests in peace now. Unfortunately people trying to make a buck off him even when he`s dead. I sure hope that his children will have a better life .

  6. Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I am completely new to writing a blog however I
    do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
