MADONNA'S OFF. Strange that such a supposedly international superstar should cause such offence but then again, to repeat a highly unoriginal point: she did build a career out of that. (And so she loves to deny.) I wonder if Michael Jackson would be any more popular? It's only when he got in trouble that people came out of the woodwork and admitted to actually liking him and saying they found his music funky. In many ways he is Madonna's opposite: he mainstreamed himself out so bad he nearly lost all "flava". Also I don't think his recordings do his voice much justice at all. Hearing candid snatches of his singing in documentaries &c - a warm, unusually rich tone resonates out. Far form the helium-shriek he made his trade mark on, particularly, the Bad album ... Ho-hum. The tribulations of a superstar. They say MJ's nearly bankrupt because he feels the need for at least twenty staff to trail behind him wherever he goes. I say Michael drop the staff. Take those veils off your kids' faces for they'll loathe you for them when they're older. And learn to cook for yourself. I've a fantastic recipe for beef stew if you'd only look below!
My two blogs of the day: (1) Creative Writing Blog: Toni V Lee
(2) Living in Shanghai: Val in China
Both well worth a look!
OK the verdict is: this blog definitely stays nonmusical. (Unless the music is actively turned ON.)
Michael Jackson = my little joke
but he does seem to have more fans than anyone else.
Also I don't remember ever hearing anyone say they don't like his music. Which is pretty much a triumph for MJ, don't you think .... (?)
i'm gone. again
