When a person dies, be it celebrity or rank unknown, there’s always someone ready to pronounce, “This is what she/he would have wanted.” And they say this with great authority while most of us left behind haven’t a clue.
Since Michael Jackson’s death, family and hangers-on have gathered and “best friends” have surfaced to take part in the creepy activities. Surely some one (or more) claim to have the word on “what Michael would have wanted.” But, sadly, those in charge have missed the boat.
In life, Michael Jackson was adamant about protecting his children from the media. With the exception of the balcony scene, we have not had a look at Paris, Prince Michael or Blanket. There is no way MJ would have wanted them to be paraded out after his death. Surely if there is one who truly cared about Michael Jackson or his children, that person would speak against this exploitation.
Now, after it’s been shown a thousand times, the video of a grieving little girl will be filed away with the pictures of John Kennedy, Jr. saluting his daddy’s casket and Prince Harry’s note to “Mummy” bouncing through the streets of London leading Diana’s funeral procession. We will see the scene again and again any time there is the slightest excuse. And Paris will see it again and again for the rest of her life.
Is this what her protective father would have wanted? I think not.
