OK so just for the sake of amusement.

Lets suppose that MJ had had a normal childhood but had not gone on to be a musical superstar would that have been a better or worse outcome?

This is my opinion.

in one way you can only appreciate what family did, and in which way they said goodbye, with a huge memorial service for all fans. Michael was a star and he is a king of pop. his fans also wanted to say goodbye. honestly, i cried, because he had something that had meaning to me, especially dancing.

i don't judge that memorial service. it is not nothing bad, because he will not be a star if it wasn't his fans.

but what i don't like is how media is showing him, and what paparazzi are doing to his family. they just don't have respect. i know that they need to sell their stories, but it is disgusting how they are attacking everybody, and sometimes i am a shamed that i am a journalist.  Cry

there was a time that journalists respected a 'private space'simply because thats what their readers demanded.  The real trouble is that we as readers do not demand it any more so anything goes - which is why we end up with untouchable presidents and not great leaders ....

Remember that the journalist are only like that because much of the public wants them to be that way or it would not be so.

everyone has become grist for the mill - when you get down to it all most journalists seem to care about now is their careers Sad

Kids have their own way of dealing with loss. How and why doesn't always make sense to the adult but if they are denied it, it could hurt them for a long time, maybe even for ever, we just don't really know.

I don’t know what the case with MJ daughter was, but if she was just half as insistent as my nephew then I am sure every sensitive person would let the child do what the child needed to do. [/quote]

Sorry, but the family lacks cred...

Of course the word would be 'she wanted to do it' but someone had to put the idea of talking on national TV in her mind - thats not something a normal child comes up with.[/quote]

The fam does lack cred, but Paris is a child...uninvolved in the fam's crap. However, she is a very strong little girl, who always seemed to feel like she had ro defend and protect her dad. Odd? Yes, but true. Children have amazing feelings and insighrs. Not something a normal child comes up with? Completely untrue. DSV's young fam memebr did. At my dad's funeral, my sister asked to play his fav song on her piano. And, as I said, these guys were friends...Paris is no normal child.

I hope you are right - and I hope she is 'no normal child' because that is her nature and not her nurture. 

but as said, the family lacks cred and I'm afraid I am inclined to be cynical on this point - and I am no cynic..

They have always lived on publicity and I suppose it's as the saying goes, "all publicity is good publicity no matter if good or bad".  Now the news is where the kids are going.  MJ's parents say they are going to raise them but I wonder with all the screwed up kids in that family if that's the best option.  I think Janet may be okay if she would take them but I think they will go to his parents.

I think in the end he was just renting it since he had no money.  Or, let's face it, no money in comparrison to just being rich.  Whomever owns the property is for sure going to want to make some bucks and really who would turn that gold mine down?
