There's a choice Michael Jackson's making... we just don't know what it is

152728__mj_lI wish Michael Jackson hadn’t bothered to show up at all for last night’s World Music Awards in  London. Once there, he wandered around the stage, intermittently hugging preteens and rasping a few lines of the "We Are the World" chorus before flinging his jacket into the crowd. If you bother to watch the video, note his attention to detail on the timing of the fling. He really needed it to release on the first "world" of a new verse — primarily so that he could avoid more singing. And towards the end, he pitifully gave up mid-line. He sang, "It’s true, we…" and then cut off, possibly because he’d just realized he has ceased to make a brighter day for you and me.

Did it HAVE to be a children’s chorus?! [Angrysmiley.]

Fans who’d dropped £100-200 on tix (seeing as this was the lame-o WMAs, a good question for them would be "why?") came to the show expecting Jacko to pair up with R&B star Chris Brown for a live version of "Thriller." That didn’t happen, and Brown performed alone. Whatever you think of Brown, that took guts. (Or, more likely, an irate director screaming in his face that he better go out there anyway.) And whatever you think of Jacko, consider this, and weep for those brighter days.

    Annie Annie Annie, I had promised myself I wouldn’t get into any Jackson related topic but what the hell your article is too good not to participate lol!!!!!! I have seen the clip and boy! Jackson’s voice disappeared along his money, his voice on the few words he “sang” was cracked and soo low, besides did he really needed all those “kids!” on stage, has he not learn a thing yet?…I really wonder how somebody like him has still fans…then again O.J. is now with that stupid book now too and I bet it will sell too…Oh well GREAT ARTICLE!!!!!!!!

    Many things on stage at once to remind us of how hard MJ has fallen. The kids to remind us of the scandals, the song to remind us of the era when he sold records, and a drugged out, frail looking Michael reminding us that there stands a man many of us once admired.

    Michael’s faking his vocals in that youtube clip. That is one emperor who hardly ever bothered to get dressed.

    Next move…peddling a book and Fox tv Special…..”I didn’t rape those boys, but if I did, here’s how it happened”……….

    god, how sad to watch those clips and realize that somewhere under that crumbling face and absolutely destroyed mind, a huge fire of a talent once burned…thanks for the reminder, not that it doesn’t make it even sadder…

    The cannot sing anymore. In order to sing, you have to be able to breathe. In order to breathe, you have to have a nose.

  • claudenorth

    The way he was surrounded (engulfed?) by the kids at the end reminded me of SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER. Could MJ be the new Sebastian Venable???

    Mike needs to be locked. THe weirdness he is inflicting upon the world cannot be good for the environment.

  • Ed

    Michael Jackson deservedly earned the name – WACKO JACKO! Those Brits always have balls!
    Anyway, I think MJ needs to get together with Janet and tell his baby sis that she is headed his way, career wise. Janet hasn’t had a single hit since All For You. M Jackson hasn’t had a hit since his Lisa Marie Presely days. Those two are crumbling fast, face and all!

    Doesn’t this man have 1 publicist who can talk him into NOT appearing with kids. It just adds an extra creepy vibe to the entire mess

  • Juju

    I totally agree with Elizabeth. MJ cannot sing anymore, because of too many nose jobs. It is sad that he felt he had to completely change himself. There is nothing left of his old self. His voice was really gone when he did the Victory Tour with his siblings. He covered his mouth on most of the songs because he was not really singing. Too bad for him! And I don’t understand why people are still falling all over him. He is creepy indeed.

    Stars…………..burn out sometimes. So sad.

  • jamal

    you losers need to quit hating on michael, he didnt sing cuz he didnt feel like it

  • Garry

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: What a freak. I recently saw a video clip of him singing when he was about 10 years old. This can’t be the same person–he’s more like some kind of modern, reconstructed, skin-bleached, make-up heavy Frankenstein monster. Every time he appears in public, he makes a spectacle of himself, even when he doesn’t do much of anything (like sing). He’s one sick, perverted puppy.

    Creepy. Just plain creepy.
