The King is Back

Ok well...maybe not back back as in here.  But Michael Jackson is definitely back in the memestream. 

I just returned from Las Vegas yesterday where I saw Cirque du Soleil's MJ Immortal tribute show to the King of Pop and got my picture taken with another King, a young Elvis look-a-like. 

So I figured this would be the perfect time to blog about several MJ-related news stories I've seen floating across the headlines recently.

Last week on 12/6, the TV show 'Glee' announced it would be doing a huge MJ tribute episode on January 24th.

[Subsequently setting the gleek universe (of which I am a part) all a-twitter.]

Then there's the super weird.

In perfect sync with my casino-filled trip apparently some strands of MJ's hair are being turned into a roulette ball. Wtf?

And on Thursday 12/15 MJ's daughter Paris Jackson will be appearing on The Ellen Show

Some bits and pieces of the interview were released early.  Most notably:

Ellen: The most memorable thing that your Dad said to you was… 

Paris: He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.' I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.

Saturday, 12/18/11:

"Auctions were standing room only...and drew bidders from around the world."

Julien's (Julian=Son of Jupiter=Son of Jack=Jackson) hosted an international pawing over a dead King's things. And just in time for Christmas.

  1. Remember the MJ death nexus? Farrah Fawcett (faucet), Billy Mays (Oxi Clean). Someone opened the floodgates.

  2. good to see you posting again...
