MJ

Never cut your dog's hair when you're mourning the loss of your girlhood idol, Michael Jackson. Just look at all those jiggy-jaggy cuts. Poor thing.

Now, MJ is a man whom I've adored for many years. I had a picture of him on my 3rd grade reading folder, wearing that baby yellow vest, with his perfectly styled Jheri curl. "Human Nature" was written across the top. I kissed that picture more than I care to share.

My devotion runs deep. I used to sing "Ben" to my very own rat. (Sick, I know. FYI: I no longer enjoy rodents.) I moon walked. I asked mi madre to buy me a sparkly, white glove (I skipped the red "Beat It" jacket). I was glued to the news when I heard M.J.'s Jheri curl caught fire, while he was shooting the Pepsi commercial.

The only way I can comfort myself in these dark and dire times (besides sipping a diet Dr. Pepper, which I've been sober from for three days straight) is DANCE! Here's a video of me and my homegurl shakin' it like a Polaroid picture to "Beat It." Press play if you dare.

P.S. I totally messed up. That's why my homegurl is shooting me with looks of disgust throughout the entire video (I'll never be cool enough for her. Never.)

The Church is still true.

  4. Katy- you are a pro. We had an MJ book when I was a kid and I thought he looked just beautiful too. I saved all my kisses for a Barry Manilow record we had though.

  5. Gracious! I loved him too. My favorite song was "I Can't Smile Without You." I can't laugh, and I can't sing. I'm finding it hard to do anything! Remember?

  9. Katy, I think I watched this video 5 times in a row. You are HILARIOUS! I think your white-girl side was showing just a teensy bit. :)
    PS. Just incase my kids don't think I'm cool... I remind them quite often.

  10. I remind them of my coolness daily. The older they get, the better they are at rolling their eyes. I know deep down they think I'm da' bomb!
