Michael Jackson is broke

hmm well i dont know if this has been mentioned much on the interference message boards
but the news of recent days (and not all that big mind you), is that michael jackson is flat out broke

it was bound to happen sometime wasnt it?
when you add all the things which have contributed to his downfall

1. no musical 'hits' for a long time

2. constant bad publicity

3. his lavish living style

and one thinks a lot of his downfall can be attributed to the fact the world had moved on whereas he just stood still

he's probably still thinking its still 1991, where Dangerous caps off a triumpant return after a layoff from his previous smash Bad

but boy oh boy, the world has changed

and all the sudden michael jackson not only has become irrelevant but also uncool, and he gets on the butt of jokes

and here we are in 2002, michael jackson is broke, and the genuine consensus is 'thats hardly surprising!'

ten years ago people would have said this was unthinkable, we made him very rich, we made him very famous, and with good purpose he was part of our hearts, he was a childhood prodigy who had all the setbacks i mean lets all remember where he's come from, toils manfully writing some of the most famous songs of his era, and we rewarded him for it

and unfortunately this fairytale doesnt end well at all, i mean it escapes me how this seemingly fantasy tale of almost a cinderella story where someone who is poor but is deserving because he had it all, finds a seemingly happy ending... then ends up being a pauper

the logic escapes me

i'd just like to bring this up, seeing my mum loves him and all

I knew out of him and madonna she would out last him. I saw it coming years ago. I never really dug him. My mom had his one vinyl and that was ok when I was a kid but ever since then I really don't see what all the hipe was for all these years.

I just realized I got a lot of my early musical influence from my mom. She gave my U2. God I love my mom.

i don't find this very surprising, either. he has his own little mini-country going on at his house. his expensive lifestyle was okay back in the early 90's when he made more than he spent, but people like that, you know will always end up broke. it just took him a little longer to get there.

it's kinda like when mc hammer got that huge house and paying for like 100 dancers onstage with him, it wasn't shocking when he declared bankruptcy. although at least mc hammer tried to help the people that helped him along the way.

i think 'broke' to these people is still many times more than u and i could ever make mind you.

i remember when they were saying sarah fergie was broke, she was still on over 100,000 pounds per year! just not her usual million or whatever it was!

Well I am suprised!

I mean despite any recent big hits and all of the controversey he never really had the big drug problem, or did he?

But in a crowded room full of celebs, if he walked in he would be the biggest fish in the room unless or Mick Jagger were there.

Broke, hmmm. Well he probably still has more $$$$$$$ than me so I can't exactly pity him! But he was a very influential musician, and there was not a better album in (83?) than Thriller.

Normal

Maybe he will sell the rights to all the Beatles music back to Paul McCartny. There has been some talk of that lately. This could explain it. Michael might want the dough.

What's the difference between a Cadillac and a naked 8 year old?











Michael Jackson doesn't have a Cadillac in his garage.
