As much as I love that Michael is “loved” again by the mainstream it pisses me off to no end because it’s hollow posing. Now it’s acceptable because it fits the mainstream popular narrative. Where were these people when he was alive? Robin Gibb said if Michael was showed half the amount of love he has been shown since he died, he’d still be alive… and that’s true.
Hours after Michael died, John Legend tweeted out some quip about how people should question whether Michael was a true hero to black people or not because of his surgery and skin, yet he’s sitting here telling us people who loved MJ when it wasn’t cool how we should love MJ… yeah ok!!!!
