> FP: God bless Elizabeth Taylor for having such a loving and nurturing heart that knows how to love the child within Micheal that was abused and wounded. The media continues to abuse his sensative eccentric soul.
> FP: I don't know him, but I feel like I do understand him a little from being who I am. I can see the kid in him. If he invites me to come over his house to play, I would love to go over there and hoping there are children there too. I would make them all laugh and enjoy the sense of family there. I can see he was so excited about having his baby that he wanted to show the whole world and did not think about the consequences of how people will misunderstand his eccentricity of how he expresses himself.
> I wish I could be friends with him because I will accept him for who he is.
> FP: Pork, it seems like you accept Micheal for who he is and appreciates his music. I think he is a true artist who uses his music to express himself and his creative imagination! I admire him for using his full potential and his courage to do it, which I can't say for myself, unfortunately. I would not consider him a screwball, just eccentric, like an artist who live passionately for his art. Without Art(music) and Children, there is no Micheal Jackson!
I don't know what you guys are talking about?
Do you have children? Have yo watched it?
I have a child with intellectual disabilities-not that that makes me any more entitled to comment...I am also a fourÖand when I publicly hold my infant child over a balcony for whatever childish excitable, prideful reason I would expect to be called on it!
I have sympathy for him But I also have sympathy and understanding for my incredibly abusive mother and father and every other unhealthy person who abused me in my childhood but that doesn't mean I should put aside my logic and insight and embrace fellow fours without questioning their state of mind in regards to children. I donít support my friendís weaknesses and I would hope they donít support mine!
He is extremely unstable and he needs help not pity and not encouragement....as do we all!
You guys obviously, think I' being too harsh but I've seen the negative effects of bad parenting (like we all have), and I don't think it should be supported. Iím certainly glad I got my shit together...I wouldn't have trusted myself or inflicted myself on my daughter when I was medicated and delusional and depressed and sad and entranced!!! The whole cycle would be perpetuated. God forbid! Give me wisdom and insight and honesty AND compassion any day.
Like I said, his heart is in the right place. And Ií not saying his kids should be taken away fro him! I said he gets treated differently because of he is rich and famous, (and as far as yo are concerned- because he is a 4!).
I was an actress and have many well known friends and adit, since moving into film directing, have a bit of a bee in my bonnet about the cult of celebrity-esp: actors!!!!!
I agree with yo- he is like a childÖ.and children can have the best of intentions but lack the self awareness and wisdom(not to mention responsibility), that it takes to raise another human being well. Surely that is obvious despite the seemingly mafia-esque loyalty to 4ísÖ
I feel that this is a ridiculous conversation, Elizabeth Taylor etc...are we supposed to wallow in our collective pain going on about how much 4s suffer and how much empathy we have as 4's or work at redemption, transformation and evolution?
I know what I am interested in!
I don't think his music is particularly expressive at all. The stuff that is emotional seems to come from his stress point-2!
But believe me I love "Thriller" like everybody else!
