Thus my message to Michael is: Stop hanging out with kids. If you want to get your freak on, find someone who can take it as well as give it. Does phrase mutual satisfaction ring a bell? And speaking of satisfaction, is it possible to change your skin back to its original color? You, my brother need a tan in worst possible way. Lastly, accept fact that you are no longer megastar who once sold millions of records. Like artists before you, and those who are to follow, all good things come to an end. And your reign as “King of Pop” has reached its finale. And if you don’t believe me, just look at sales of your last album. Dismal numbers aren’t they?
Oh by way Michael speaking of cynicism, African-Americans detest way you play race card. You see it was only when you were arrested that you suddenly discovered your “Blackness”. What happened? Did inmates remind you that underneath those layers of chemically bleached skin, you are still a “Kneegrow?” That’s why if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll concede that you only turn to Black community when it suits you. But soon as things return to normal, or as normal as they can get in your world, you dissipate into your Caucasian chamber and peer lovingly into a sea of White faces.
Like it or not Michael, it is you who must realize that you have become your worst nightmare. Admit that and maybe you can restore some credibility to your career. And while you’re admitting things, ask yourself how many 45-year old men hold hands with boys and give them milk and cookies in bed? I don’t know about you, but if they want milk and cookies that bad, let their parents give it to them. Or have you added pastry chef and milk server to your resume? And on that note I will end my message. Now Mike let me ask you a question, how’s that for a dose of reality?
