Yeah really! Those days I was listening to a lot more mainstream pop than rock n roll. I didn't hear all of Achtung until 1997.

Nope. I meant it when I said I dont care what colour someone is. Bono could turn purple for all I really care.
Michael Jackson's change is most likely due to a combination of his surgeries, bleaching, and perhaps even a bit of the claimed vertiligo. Whatever caused it doesn't matter to me in the slightest. I dont care what colour he is now, nor what he was back then. If it is hard to believe that this could not matter in any way to someone, then you have issues, my friend.

i don't think he has issues. michael has issues and that is partly why i care what color he's become...out of concern/ fascination for the mental state that brings such a change about, not because of the color itself.

I can't believe I'm arguing uphill that Michael Jackson is weird.

Who bloody well said he wasn't weird?

Jesus Christ.

Se7en, true that the change itself might incur come curiosity, but not because it actually matters. If typhoon doesn't really care, then good. I care even less about this ridiculous semantic argument than anyone's colour. How's that?

You have to admit that a purple Bono would be pretty cool, though.

I pretty much keep his music and his ever-escalating weirdness separate. Except when I look at "Bad' album cover I always think, why oh why did he have to have more plastic surgery from then on??

I'm good at seperating the man behind the music. If I concentrated on musicians personality with the music, I would be missing out on a lot of great music. I still love michael's music and is able to ignore the headlines.

*Lines up here*

Thriller is still a good album even the person who made it is, nowadays, off his rocker.

I like the video for the song "Thriller" . Scared me when I was a kid, but I find it quite cool now.
