Michael Jackson’s Son Shares Heartfelt Poem For Late Father’s Birthday
Jackson’s oldest son, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. – aka Prince Jackson – lead a
series of touching tributes to the late star on what would have been his 58th
brief post shared via Twitter and Instagram on Monday, Prince, who was only 12
when Michael died, shared a self-penned poem for his dearly departed father.
moving 14-line sonnet – titled “the Myth, the Legend and the Man” – the 19-year-old
wrote: “Happy birthday to the Man who was more than a legend. I love you.”
Prince alluded to
the singer’s troubled life in the poem, but also stressed the importance of
family; specifically drawing attention to how much he cared for his children
before concluding that his father is an archangel.
His sister Paris
later re-grammed his post on her own account, adding: “Love this.. proud of you
big brother. And happy birthday to the man that means more to us than anything
and anyone ever could.”
tragically passed away of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication on
June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest while preparing for his
comeback concert series, but his legacy certainly lives on.
Tito took to social media and declared Monday “Michael Jackson Day” in a tweet, which was then followed by an outpouring of tributes to the late icon.
Madonna shared a collage
of photos of them together, writing: “Happy Birthday to this wonderful and
glorious creature!! The King! Gone too soon!”
family later released a statement, which read: “We’re so touched to
see such an outpouring of love for Michael in celebration with your events,
pics, posts & thoughts. #MichaelJacksonDay”
First off. Moriarty has the paid version of the app, and makes a point of challenging Joan when Joan is sitting in interrogations, or with her mother, or on a date with some guy her mother fixed her up with. Joan, you see, Joan gets REALLY into it. Like really, really into it. She’s competitive, she had to be to get where she was in medicine before her patient died, and she knows a lot of stuff and is good at trivia. Joan always wants to win, but Moriarty gets the better of her from time to time.
laughs when their partner trips on something
It was this one time, they were meeting for coffee and it was finally spring and Joan had raised an eyebrow and inclined her head, wanting to go outside. Moriarty, behind ridiculous bug-like sunglasses, had caught her very expensive shoe on an uneven section of sidewalk and had gone ass over teakettle, coffee flying in this brilliant arc over her head. It landed around her, almost in a perfect circle, and none of it touched her pristine outfit. Somehow, this whole scenario was absolutely hilarious to Joan, and she laughed and laughed and laughed while Moriarty scowled at her and marched back into the coffee shop to see about another cup.
would drop ice down the back of the other’s shirt as a joke
Well that’s a surefire way to get yourself killed, Joan reasons watching as Moriarty looks murder up a the metal awning that they’d taken refuge under. Ice and snow had slipped from it and slid, oh so casually off and onto Moriarty’s head. Her collar is up, but some still gets in anyway. The sound that Moriarty makes as she shimmies and tries to get the ice to melt is most undignified and certainly out of character.
spoils the ending of books/movies
Moriarty likes to make her guesses, she sees Joan’s choices of reading material as unworthy of her time (she’s never much cared for novels), but she’ll guess the ending all the same. Joan will hum at the back of her throat and ignore anything she says regarding the books Moriarty spies in her purse when they meet. She’ll ignore everything but the curve of Moriarty’s lips and how easily they slide against her own.
always posts a picture of the other as their MCM or WCW
“I thought you didn’t do social media.”
“I don’t, by rule.”
“Then what’s this?” Joan holds up her phone and shows her the curious ‘re-gram’ that Oren had sent her with a series of question marks attached.
Moriarty’s face is impassive. “A photograph of you, posted to a social media site where anyone can access the image’s meta data and discover all sorts of interesting things about the photographer.”
“And you’re not janieblority82 on instagram?”
“Of course not, Joan.” Moriarty tilts her head to the side. “I would have taken a better photograph of you. Perhaps naked, just fucked, the sun on your belly and breasts?”
eats the last piece of cake in the fridge before the other can have it
It was Joan’s birthday, after all. The cupcake had been a sweet gesture, one that Joan hadn’t anticipated at all. She’d taken it with a shy feeling at her stomach, not sure how she was supposed to react.
She’s fucking pissed when she finally works up the nerve to eat the cupcake later that evening to find the box empty and a note that simply reads ‘criminal.’
obnoxiously celebrates Monday Punday every week
After Sherlock discovers it, it’s only a matter of time before Moriarty follows his lead, and Joan spends entirely too much time hanging out with Marcus and Andre on Monday evenings.
makes loving hack posts on the other’s Facebook/Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter etc
“I thought you friended me on facebook,” Chad is saying, frowning at his phone. “Instead all I have is this message from you that says that I am unworthy of your time and that my dye job isn’t fooling anyone.”
Joan groans and buries her head in her hands. “I’ve… got this friend. Who likes to guess my passwords.”
“Well tell him message received: loud and clear.” Chad says, storming away.
has to beat their partner in every game
The games they play are twisted, torture. They are minefields of emotions she doesn’t want and feelings she cannot process. Jamie loves the game, she delights in the game, and she plays to win.
Yet somehow, it is the game that finds her at a disadvantage. For Joan Watson will win her every time.
keeps their partner up half the night talking about random stuff
“it’s four in the morning, Jamie.”
“Not here.” A pause, breathing. Joan knows she won’t hang up.
I just created the instagram account @womendps to promote the work of

For this week’s Give Back Tuesday, treat your wardrobe to something stylish while giving back to a great cause! I’ve teamed up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and ShoeDazzle on a wonderful program called #ShoeDazzleCares.
Last year while visiting St. Jude, I met Bailey - one of the strongest, bravest, sweetest girls I’ve ever come across! We sent Bailey one of my favorite Fall shoes from ShoeDazzle so that she could add her own personal touch to them. I’m so impressed with her artwork! I was able to share her masterpiece with everyone at the recent #ShoeDazzleCares luncheon. Bailey’s work was a hit!
Get your hands on a pair of these fall boots and style them to your liking. They’re so comfy and easy to wear with anything. Dress them down for a daytime look or dress them up for a night on the town. As a special bonus, ShoeDazzle is giving out a discount code when they reach 100 re-grams on Instagram. Click here to re-gram the pic and be sure to use the hashtag #ShoeDazzleCares.
All month long, these boots will be raising funds and awareness for St. Jude. ShoeDazzle will be making a donation so that kids like Bailey receive the treatment and care they need!
It’s girls like Zara that make us love our job: We found her photos on Instagram and were immediately hooked. She’s always photographing adventurous girls in breathtaking landscapes or creating killer, colorful still lifes. And the most impressive part: Zara’s only 15! We caught up with the New Zealander to find out more about her work.
AN: short bit of fluff after talking to a friend about how repetitive wedding/ pregnancy/ baby announcements on facebook get….randomness ensued…
be creative and different!” Adam said, pleading with Taylor to go with his
trying to find an innovative way of making an announcement to their fans and so
far they were not in agreement. Taylor wanted to go the cute route while Adam
wanted to trick everyone.
it does fit with our jobs and stuff….and they will probably take it at face
value to start with at least, so that could be funny… And they all want us to release
a single or something together…” Taylor mused, sitting sideways on the sofa
while Adam massaged her feet. “Yeah, I like it.”
