Say Something Nice About Michael Jackson
We know that Michael Jackson was a brilliant musical artist, but as a person, he often seemed conflicted and a tad self-loathing. Still, now that's he's gone, it's not polite to remind people of stuff like that, so let's go out of our way to find only positive things to say about the man and his eyeliner. I'll start:
"His nose didn't overly dominate his face."
"He didn't talk too loudly."
"His glove was often very clean."
"He was very fond of children."
"He gave a lot of money to the Shirley Temple memorabilia industry."
"He wasn't like anyone else in the whole whole world (except maybe LaToya)."
"He was very thin."
And you? Go ahead and sing your praises, girl!
