Seriously WTF was that?
 
2009-03-05 06:52:13 PM  
He really needs to take a sander to the putty.
 
2009-03-05 07:21:55 PM  
well, that was bizarrely entertaining in a WTF kind of way

How does this man remember song lyrics? And on tour, I'd be scared to death that he'd moonwalk right into some pyro.

More than worth the price of admission, right there.

It's be like the Pepsi commercial all over again.
Good times.

His head looks like it is going to fall off.
 
2009-03-05 08:32:22 PM  
He's kinda lookin' like Joey Ramone. Maybe there's some hope for him.

You should look at the Man in the Mirror.
 
2009-03-05 08:50:07 PM  
I hope he springs OJ from prison, and has him and whichever Ramsey parent is still alive as special walk-on guests during the show.

What does he look like?
 
2009-03-05 10:16:01 PM  
He's especially looking foward to the chorus line of 11 year old boys in sparkley hot pants.
 
2009-03-05 10:39:30 PM  
So there's going to be a tour?
 
2009-03-05 10:40:22 PM  
I don't know what was more disturbing: Michael or the 40-something men in the crowd screaming like little girls.
 
2009-03-05 10:46:33 PM  
I know this goes without say but that guy is farking nuts. I cant wait to stand on the sidelines and watch this circus. Should be loads of insane people to watch.
 
2009-03-05 10:48:40 PM  
That didnt even seem real. Are we all on Candid Camera right now or something? Or are they just trying to see how much insane shiat they can distract us with? Jesus.

Please... like he'll actually need to sing.

Say what you will, but as someone who has watched an MJ concert, I will tell you this.

His concerts are UNREAL.
 
2009-03-05 11:11:28 PM  
Hmmm, double meaning.

I meant, "will the real MJ come back to us, please?"

Did not mean he was asking us to come back to him. Although that works.

/I guess which way you read it tells us things about you.
 
2009-03-05 11:16:05 PM  
Anyone notice in the second video his voice goes down an octive.
He honestly looks like a melted space alien drag queen not even human anymore.

He is. Yet he's not.

Discuss.
 
2009-03-05 11:36:24 PM  
Seriously, when he smiles----swear to gawd he looks like Tom Cruise
 
2009-03-05 11:44:31 PM  
If you like his crap sugar-pop music...DIE.
 
2009-03-06 12:08:58 AM  
I saw him at the beach one time. I was laying out trying to tan, and his umbrella kept casting shade on me. So I said to him, "Michael, you're in my sun!"

So was that video.
 
2009-03-06 12:22:34 AM  
If this guy doesn't start watching his act, folks are bound to start thinkin' he's just a bit peculiar, you betcha.
 
2009-03-06 12:59:27 AM  
When you're broke, go make some money..Doesn't matter if we like the guy, or not, he can still sell tickets around the world....I would not pay to see him, but if the ticket was free....

/In a hot minute.
//Just to say I did.

You know how when you have a dream about something, and everything is kind of muddled and doesn't really make any sense?

That's exactly what that video reminded me of. It was surreal.
 
2009-03-06 02:56:32 AM  
If you want to watch the video without the hideous commentary and obtrusive graphics... here it is. (new window)
 
2009-03-06 03:10:37 AM  
Golly, that's sad.
 
2009-03-06 05:58:20 AM  
There were at least 100 screaming fans there... and 99 of them were getting paid for it.

Sugar pop?!?!? Uh, ever heard of a song called "Bad"?

I agree something about it was just off. Then again it was MJ so i guess everything about it is supposed to be off. Maybe its the fact that he looks so unreal it makes the rest of the video seem fake

If only he was like the old Michael. Too bad I'm not old enough to really remember the old Michael. By the time I was old enough to appreciate his music, he was pretty much on the verge of insanity. (Think Scream with Janet area.)

yeah, really. Like anyone really cares anymore.

CCCarnie: If only he was like the old Michael. Too bad I'm not old enough to really remember the old Michael. By the time I was old enough to appreciate his music, he was pretty much on the verge of insanity. (Think Scream with Janet area.)

I think it was just before the "Bad" album for me, so, still in the 80s but he was just starting to look like a woman. "Bad" was the first cassette tape I ever owned.

I wore the crap out of Thriller on vinyl, but being as young as I was, I think it was more the tiger on the album cover and the fact that he was in a lot of magazines. I mean, he was pretty inescapable for awhile, even posing with President Reagan (or accepting an award from him... or something...).

I still like his music (though not really the more recent stuff), but if I take any time to think about the man, it just makes me sad. There are very few people in the world... very few people that have ever existed... with his kind of fame. He's a world-wide icon and I can't even begin to imagine what kind of life that leads to.
 
2009-03-06 10:07:04 AM  
Well, that was freakish.

Though it is a tough call which is more freakish: him or the fans.

Is it just me, or did his sleeve have sergeant's chevrons on it? That's quite a demotion from 'king'

Amazing isn't it? How the way a news item is presented effects peoples opinions of the subject. May I be so bold as to suggest that other news oulets are repeating the poorer quality clips over and over again because they want to point up Jacko's freakishness.
 
2009-03-06 11:39:41 AM  
I am proud to say I've never owned a MJ album. And I was 11 when Thriller came out.

Never understood his popularity.

Tough words for a guy with a screen name straight out of a bestiality forum...
 
2009-03-06 02:16:39 PM  
Did he really need a teletype / teleprompter for that?
 
2009-03-06 04:36:07 PM  
Thanks a lot, Lou Stoolz, I was trying to eat lunch.

Trust me, if you are like me and remember the old, old Michael from the Jackson 5 days, things are REALLY creepy now.

/yeah, get off my lawn
