I admit I probably spend too many minutes of my life making comments on yahoo news stories. Sometimes you just can't help it. You see a story and naturally have an opinion. (And what woman doesn't? lol)
It seems I always start on one story then get distracted by something else and click on that and that and that and then wonder how the heck I wound up where I did.
Here was my chain of events today.
One of the headline stories was some supposed heartfelt performance of Christina Aguilara's. So I clicked on and it led me to YouTube where I watched her sing "Say Something" with some group I've never heard of for about 2 minutes.
On the sidelines where they show other "suggested" videos, Judith Hill caught my eye.
It was her Voice audition. She really stood out on the show to me a couple of years ago,what a beautiful singer. Then I remembered she was going to be on Michael Jackson's last tour before he died. Punched that in and watched her and MJ singing "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" at the rehearsal. What a passionate performance that was! Wow, lucky girl.
(Sorry Christina...your heartfelt song was no comparison but thanks to leading me to one!)
Well,once I heard that it made me think of Billie Jean. I mean, what was the 80's without Billie Jean? lol. Funny watching that video now. The lighted steps, the sleeve lift, the tippy toes. I kept waiting for him to really break out and DANCE but it was surprisingly very restrained. Lots of slo mo and stops. So so 80's. Were we really that campy back then?
You know how one MJ song can keep leading you to the next one. They're like potato chips...can't watch (eat) just one! I HAD to watch "Remember the Time", one of my most favorites. Don't know why but I really dig that song.
It takes about 3 1/2 minutes before the King of Pop shows up.
He's got the dress, the spaghetti strap halter, face paint.
The first thought that popped into my mind was Bruce Jenner!
Wonder if this is what planted the idea into his head. LoL. Let's see, he would have been about 43 when this video came out. Did he see it while he was in Mid Life Crisis territory?
Poor Bruce. What else can we chalk it up to, this sudden "wanting to be a woman"? Maybe not "sudden" but first we heard of it.
A former strong male Olympian reduced to fingernail polish and a straggly ponytail.
This has to be one of the more bizarre stories of 2015. I really didn't believe the rumors until reading he's going to be 'coming out' about it soon. Crazy.
But that's the least of the world's problems. And after watching the MJ video it's not even "news" anymore.
Sorry Bruce, MJ was there first!
