Why I am a Michael Jackson Fan

Truly, as the greatest artist and performer of our time I have a Michael Jackson fan for almost the whole entirety of my life. Here is a man so misunderstood and misjudged. If only people would open their eyes and not let the biased tendencies of the tabloid trash infect their minds. The ability to allow the infection of constructed ideas is a habitually practised perversion of truth, especially when it comes to the bouc émissaire attitude towards Michael Jackson, and this is an issue which I feel very strongly about. As Michael Jackson has said before, “Do not judge a person, do not pass judgment, unless you have talked to them one on one,” and I really believe this. Remember: “Before you judge me, try hard to love me.”

From around four or five, I have always been enthralled and fascinated by the musical, creative and artistic genius of Michael Jackson. I clearly remember when I discovered Michael Jackson. Dusting off from the shelf a VHS of Dangerous – The Short Films I became hypnotised by the music video: appreciating the Egyptian themed dance choreographies to the point of obsessively imitating every step, every move. I was addicted, and I loved it like an alcoholic loves the taste of ethanol burning down their neck. Of course, my addiction was of a more dignified establishment, as I am sure Mr. Seth Green would agree, when I quote them, “There are two kinds of people in this world: Michael Jackson fans and losers.” Fortunately I find myself fitting into the position of the prior. As my years increased, I began to not only appreciate Michael as an artist, but also as a person with whom I shared many distinct attributes. Below I list three passages from Michael’s 1988 autobiography (Moon Walk). Both contain personality reflections applicable to my own and I provide personal commentary after each in bold:

1) “I think my image gets distorted in the public's mind. They don't get a clear or full picture of what I'm like, despite the press coverage I mentioned early. Mistruths are printed as fact, in some cases, and frequently only half of a story will be told. The part that doesn't get printed is often the part that would make the printed part less sensational by shedding light on the facts.” My own extreme shyness presents an outward image in, public which is very much misunderstood. People assume that because I am shy I must prefer being left alone, when I clearly don’t. This is in the same way that people have come to conclusions over their opinions of Michael without any substantial justification of their views.

2) “I've been accused of being obsessed with my privacy and it's true that I am. People stare at you when you're famous. They're observing you and that's understandable, but it's not always easy. If you were to ask me why I wear sunglasses in public as often as I do, I'd tell you it's because I simply don't like to have to constantly look everyone in the eye.” It’s true that I can be infuriatingly difficult when it comes to being totally stubborn to change, but this is what I have come to accept. Many people have often questioned why I don’t just stop worrying about what other people think. Well it’s easy enough to say it like that, but when you’re in the shoes of a shy person you’ll see how it’s not that easy.

3) “Everybody has many facets to them and I'm no different. When I'm in public, I often feel shy and reserved. Obviously, I feel differently away from the glare of cameras and staring people. My friends, my close associates, know there's another Michael that I find it difficult to present in the outlandish "public" situations I often find myself in.” This is also true. As an extremely shy person, I am very much misjudged and misunderstood in public, but if I really know you and you try to understand me, you will see me for who I really am.

Now, I’ve supported and believed in Michael Jackson since those early days of mine, and I will continue to do so forever. To Michael Jackson:

You’ve set records that were Off the Wall; you should us that you were a Thriller. You’ve been Bad, you’ve been Dangerous, and along the way you’ve even created HIStory. Many have let you down over the course of your career, from your early days touring the Midwest with The Jackson 5 to your (and I am jumping ahead here) upcoming series of performances, ‘This Is It’, you’ve remained unbreakable, and you’ve shown everyone just how Invincible you are.

Mr. Michael Jackson, I’m a fan, and I’m always going to be a fan. There will always be people out there trying to destroy you, but even you have said, “People write negative things because that’s what sells,” and “Ignorance is Prejudice.” God bless you, Keep the Faith, and always remember that there are a lot of people out there, just like me, who have always supported you. You have an allegiance of loyal supporters and we all can’t wait to see what you do next.
