Negative attention is just as good as positive attention if you ask me...
You know, when I started this venture, I never really expected anyone to read my Michael Jackson meanderings. I hoped people would come, since I write all of this for the fans, but 'hope' is a completely different thing than 'expect'.
Well, check this post from lipstickalley.com. It gave me a great chortle:

Apparently, 'MjloverCiidney' didn't like my Michael Jackson first anniversary post. She called me a 'bitch' and a 'stupid whore' for suggesting that Michael used his newly vitiligo-lightened skin for 'global domination'. I even left her 'shaking her head'.
Of course, I never said any of that. I simply surmised that maybe his record label, Sony Music, misused his vitiligo to whitewash his image and make him more appealing to European/white audiences. You know, a la 'Black or White' being the first single from his Dangerous album when he all of a sudden emerged 'light, bright, and damned near white'.
And the comments I made in regards to the 'blue eye patch' equating Michael's own desire for blue eyes was more of a quasi-Freudian joke.
That's all I said. No harm done.
If 'MjloverCiidney' ever plans to frequent my blog more than just to haphazardly read a post that appears in the Google search engine, she will find that this blog--while it will undoubtedly pump out unpopular opinions regarding Our Beloved--is mentally stimulating on the Michael Jackson tip.
At least I like to think so.
Truthfully, I like to push buttons; I like to get people going. I can't help it. It's a compulsion, like some sort of one-sided competition with the world.
I hope I don't sound conceited because I'm not. Really. :-D
I will say, though, lipstickalley.com has a Michael Jackson subculture that contains some of the most insane individuals I have ever witnessed on the Internet. I'm so surprised, although I shouldn't be, that little solitary Desiree, who has not yet had one thousand visitors, elicited such an angry response. But 'MjloverCiidney' is just the tip of the iceberg, let me tell you...
