Today the world lays to rest one of the most gifted and talented geniuses in modern time. It is a sad day indeed, listening to commentators as they struggle to celebrate him while calling attention to his demons. Soledad O’Brien asked why he was so full of contradictions? I ask the question, “Who isn’t?”
We are all full of contradictions, which is what makes us interesting. I’m confused as to why everyone thinks a man like Michael Jackson would not be. As some display poor taste and judgment by demonizing this man at his memorial, I choose to remember him fondly for his unmatched contributions to the world of music. He will be missed and hopefully some of the humanity that he showed the world, will be shown to him in the coming days. Afterall, he was a human being.
