Hey Y'all

So, i haven't been on here for a while. I had planned to blog so much last week and it all fell through.

Last Thursday June 25th 2009, the world lost a legend an icon. heaven got a dancing, singing, amazing angel.

Very few people outside of my family know this but i was/am a huge MJ fan. I loved to see him dance and fell in love with dance because of him. When i was younger i wanted to marry him get a chimp name babbles and move to neverland ranch(lol).

He opened the door for many "artist" we hear today. Many artist sing and dance like him. BOTH male and female. He was GREAT at his crafts!!

There will never be any one that will be as great as Michael Jackson, he will be often imitated but never duplicated.

When I heard the news i felt like i lost a family member, i was in denial for a while and then deeply saddened I didn't know how to react. I was angry, and sad.
Proceeding the day of his death, I was stuck to CNN for almost a week straight, missing my daily shows, Barley eating and having limited contact and conversations with the outside world( besides the amazing women in the MJ thread on BHM). I have been OBSESSED with MJ,his songs ( i have 7 of his albums) His videos, hisSTORY.

While he was alive he was often mocked, made fun of. Stalked, talked about, treated like someone/thing from another planet. The good he did was often over looked, in his death it continues. It sadens me that the world is seeing this man get ripped apart and he is not here to defend himself. It sadens me that the "story" is more important then his children. The children JUST lost their dad and NOW terrible things are being said about him. Things in my opinion that are NOT important. It sadens me that his "friends" are spilling the beans about "what they know" and he is not even layed to rest. It's such a sad world we live in. Such a sad reality of what people deem as important.

No matter what MJ looked like, what he was accused of i stayed a fan. I never believed the crazy, horrible allegations of him molesting a child and still to this day i don't. MJ was "different" so it was easy to believe that he was a monster, that he would do mean, evil, disgusting things. It was easy for everyone in glass houses to throw stones, it was easy. But I NEVER believed it and often kept my opinion to myself.

MJ left a legacy of GREAT music, GREAT dancing, GREAT Humanitarian, GREAT human being. What Michael Jackson meant to me was hope, beauty , kindness. He was half of what many people and entertainers try to be. His loving heart even in death continues to give to the less fortunate.

I want people to remember the 50 Million raised for Africa, the 1.5 Million donated to the MJ burn center for burn victims from his pepsi law suit. I want people to remeber that he ALWAYS had people of color in his videos. He broke barriers around the world, on MTV, on TV, on Radio. MJ was one of a kind and i will always love and miss him.

I love you Michael and you will be missed!!!
