Now THAT'S Entertainment

This mornings news came as no surprise, Micheal Jackson is yet again involved in another lawsuit. Marc Schaffel, one of Jackson's former business associates, claims that Michael allegedly owes him a considerable sum of money (it's hard to tell how much it really is because the amount keeps changing in court documents) for various expenses ranging from production fees to personal loans. Like just about everyone else, I consider Michael Jackson to be nothing more than a washed up has been pop star who just can't seem to grasp the fact he is a washed up has been pop star ... he is, and always will be, a legend in his own mind. In other words, I can't think of anyone who would even cross the street to meet him ... even if he was handing out one hundred dollar bills with every handshake. Yet (oddly enough) everywhere in the world he goes, scores of people turn up to publicly pledge their love and support to him. The only thing I can figure, is that they MUST be on the payroll. Let's face it, for the last couple years the only public attention he has been getting is the seemingly endless supply of jokes about his young "friends", his "natural" discoloration, and his "non surgical" alien-like physical transformation over the years. His musical career may be over, but he is still very much an entertainer alright.
