sharing the love

Americans, I believe the infamous Michael Jackson interview is on your screens tomorrow. I advise you to watch from behind the sofa, as it is the freakiest thing in the world. Not content with having given his youngest son the same name as his older son, he refers to the infant, in all seriousness, as 'Blanket'. yes, Blanket. Why? Who knows. He's demented.

In one particularly unsettling scene, he feeds the baby with a bottle while the obviously distressed baby writhes in discomfort, his small face covered with a heavy mesh veil. He has told the kids that they don't have a mother, which they repeat to the obviously disturbed Martin Bashir.

Martin Bashir isn't a great interviewer, but the bits where he loses his smooth professional facade and just stares at Jackson in horrified disbelief are definitely worth watching. The whole thing is rather distasteful, but you probably won't be able to look away - even if you're peeking out from behind the sofa...

i missed this programme, but it was a major topic of conversation on the mobile unit last night.

i liked what cher said in an interview, having decided she wasn't friends with him any more: "once you dangle a baby over a balcony, that's it for me." she makes it sound like a common occurrence.

God, you should have seen the bit where he was talking about the baby-dangling incident. "Blanket liked it, he was going 'eeeeeeeee!' with excitement!". Um, for excitement, read 'terror', you insane freak. I love eccentricity, but Jackson has gone way past that and into dangerous freakiness.

I liked the body language of the owner of the shop where Jacko went on his shopping spree. He could hardly contain his excitement.

Yes, it's rare that you see anyone literally rubbing their hands together with glee.

"Brilliant, Jackson's coming in this afternoon! Bring out the job lot of gaudy urns and chess pieces shaped like small baroque churches!"
