I Love Michael Jackson

The Legend

I can’t believe it’s been in a year since Michael passed away. I remember I was in university and just couldn’t believe it’s true. “He’s like 50! How on earth would he die?”

It’s so ironic that his music would make a comeback only after his death! After years of negative publicity, his albums sold millions again, his songs were blasted on the radio all over again, and people mimicked his dance moves on the street.

But maybe that’s the way it always was and always will be: you truly appreciate legends and other people you love and admire only after they’re gone.

Now check out one of my favorite M.J. videos: his collaboration with sister Janet Jackson on “Scream”. Dude…their dance moves are flawless. Now those are dance moves I’d like to emulate!

Will & Grace

Will & Grace cast

If you’re not familiar with “Will and Grace”, a show about Will (gay lawyer), Grace (interior designer and Will’s best friend), Karen (a rich socialite who’s never sober), and Jack (a flamboyantly gay struggling actor/singer/dancer/fill in an occupation), you should be.

During its run from 1998 till 2006, the show won 16 Emmys, and made it easier for other “gay-themed” shows to air in the U.S.

I never get bored from watchin this show. Karen has to be my favorite character! She is unruly, disrespectful, obscene, a bad mother, and an unapologetic alcoholic!!

Here’s a classic episode where Jack likes a guy (played by How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris) . But the guy Jack likes is now a straight “ex-gay” man trying to convert Jack to straight. You gotta love Jack & Karen in this one!

Many celebrities have guest-starred on the show: Britney Spears, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Douglas, Sean Penn, Sharon Stone, Glenn Close, Cher, Janet Jackson, and many many more.

Here’s Britney’s cameo appearance on the show (2006). She plays Amber Louise, a conservative Christian & “hardcore lesbian” who becomes Jack’s  sidekick on his talk show.

Rolling Stone Cover of the Week

One of the most memorable and talked about R.S. covers ever:

Janet Jackson
on the cover of Rolling Stone with the hands of ex-husband Rene Elizondo Jr cupping her breasts.
This cover coincided with the more mature “Janet” album era. She had sexier songs, sexier lyrics, sexier pictures, which all added up to a more provocative image.

“Sex has been an important part of me for several years. But it just hasn’t blossomed publicly until now.”
