Of course the world has stopped to mourn the death of the king of pop. There is NOTHING else on the news! Why are we (as a society so obsessed with this man??????) I have been hearing some the dumbest statements today during this coverage. I thought I would start a thread to share. 1. "He was an entity in himself." (what???? what in the world does that mean??) 2. "More tonight on the SHOCKING death of Michael Jackson." (doesn't everybody die? what is so shocking about a man who had drug problems, emotional problems, ect....for many years dying? Why do we get so shocked when celebrities die? Are they immune?) 3. "Michael Jackson was like my famous older brother. I just cried all day when I learned he had died." People! Get a life!
