Avast! The King Has Died
Last year in school I did a report on Little Richard. When i was researching I read a quote from People Magazine that claimed "There couldn't have been a Michael Jackson without a Little Richard" If that is true than Michael Jackson Sr. outlived Michael Jackson jr. I don't quite know how I feel about his death. You could never quite figure him out. Sometimes, he was a compassionate, caring, beautiful man. He sang "We Are The World" for starving people of africa. He cared so much about children, he opened up an amusement park, and he often invited sick kids to come, and sometimes he payed for kids to go on trips with their families around the world. He was so giving. But then there were parts of him that were sick, wrong, and nasty. Even though he may of thought he had good intent. Like, when he dangled his baby from the balcony of a 4 story german hotel, he was only trying to show the fans his kid, but.... it looked like he wanted to drop his baby. Then there was the time he molested a boy. He looked at it as sharing a bed with a little boy he loved, that needed love. But really, it was kind of a sick act against the law. Michael was everything, he was going places, he was a pop genius, charitable, and kind of creepy. Never thought I'd say this but: I'll miss you Michael.
