Michael the Thespian
March 11, 2005

William Shakespeare once wrote:

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts...
Michael Jackson is apparently familiar with the works of Mr. Shakespeare because his child molestation trial is day-to-day drama.

Is it not odd that on the day when 15-year-old Gavin Arvizo is testifying about Jackson molesting him, people aren't talking about the trial, but instead discussing what Jackson was wearing? Brilliant that Michael Jackson. What a crock.

Umbrellas, costumes, dancing on top of cars, sickness, back pain, hospital stays, tardiness, tears, and now pajamas. Distractions, distractions. The man is making a mockery of the judicial process and only reinforcing his mental instability. Enough of the Michael Jackson show.

Jackson, pull yourself together.

Drama? Obviously so much that SkyNews (http://www.sky.com/skynews/home) has a tabbed labelled "Jackson" exclusively for Michael Jackson news.

Don't let Michael fool you. Yes his herrangs are all about distraction and drama, but there is a method to the madness. He is a Master-Manipulator and everyone sits around and says he is nuts (and this would be true) and living in his own world (also true), but he knows what he is doing. He is not Peter Pan and he knows he is not Peter Pan, he just has enough money to get people to listen to him say he is.

Years ago in an interview that I saw with Lisa Marie Presley, she mentioned that he has a normal speaking voice as opposed to that helium-esque voice we hear on tv, and I have heard that several other times from different sources. In my opinion he is a classic sociopath. Yeah he has some deep rooted self-hate issues, I mean look at what he did to his friggin' face, but he is certainly master and commander of his madness...

It is very sad to see one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) talent of our time spend the dusk of his career as the laughing stock of, well... everybody!

I have a soft spot for the mentally ill.

Sondra: I agree with you. It's totally intentional and manipulative and all that jazz. I don't dig manipulation. Not in the least.

Aw man, you missed your chance!
