Wanna know something about Michael? Ask our MJ's Love Fan~mily!

Post by Admin on Wed Feb 20, 2013 4:30 pm

I am often asked many questions about Michael Jackson but I am not the only person here who has a wealth of knowledge - many of us do. So I thought it would be cool to have a Q & A thread. If there is a question anyone has about MJ, ask away!

After his gorgeous 'natural' style (afro) MJ used/had a Jheri curl. Different styling techniques created different looks. Water and activator made a stringy curl look, combed out dry made the curls looser and bigger (like when he had his shag) and later he used a newer product called 'wave nouveau' for waves rather than curls. He added extensions occasionally (not often) and wore wigs.

This a cool thread! I may be able to answer something I am sure from time to time Wink

I have one:
I always wondered if it were true that Michael would rehearse choreography and his moves even AFTER he would have performed in a live concert? (Literally after the show late at night)

Michael Jackson's song "Morphine"

Post by Admin on Wed Feb 27, 2013 12:33 am

@midangerous: This is an excellent question. One that has a lot of people analyzing and pondering. Here is an interesting perspective from our wonderful Joe Vogel. 'Michael Jackson: Man in the Music, Part 2 (Morphine)'


Excerpt:
(From "Man in the Music: An Album by Album Guide to Michael Jackson") by Joe Vogel


"Still, for those who gave Blood on the Dancefloor: HIStory in the Mix a serious listen, it was an impressive record indeed. Containing just five new songs, the album is considered an artistic breakthrough by some. "His singing on the first five tracks of new material has never been so tormented, or audacious," wrote Armond White of Village Voice. "'Blood on the Dancefloor' has the vitality of an intelligence that refuses to be placated. . .[It] is a throwdown, a dare to the concept of innocuous Black pop." In a 1997 review, The New York Times' Neil Strauss concurred: "There is real pain and pathos in these new songs... Jackson's pain is often the world's merriment, and this is probably true of his new songs, which fret about painkillers, sexual promiscuity and public image. In many of them, Jackson seems like the elephant man, screaming that he is a human being... In keeping with Jackson's darker mood, the music has grown more angry and indignant. With beats crashing like metal sheets and synthesizer sounds hissing like pressurized gas, this is industrial funk... Creatively, Jackson has entered a new realm."


In the gritty, haunting "Morphine," Jackson tackles a subject he never had before: drug addiction. To a relentless, industrial funk beat, the singer lashes out in visceral bursts of anger, aggression, and pain. "Is truth a game daddy," he screams out at one point. "To win the fame baby/It's all the same baby/You're so reliable." The rage and disappointment, combined with its ear-assaulting sound (music critic Tom Sinclair described it as "alternating Trent Reznor-style sturm und clang with Bacharachian orchestral pomp"), make for a jarring listening experience, particularly for those accustomed to the breezier melodic pop of Off the Wall and Thriller (though it should be noted that songs like "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" and "Billie Jean" were already beginning to uncover the complexity, paranoia and pain represented in these later tracks). But "Morphine" is best viewed as an experiment -- both sonically and lyrically -- in representing the experience of physical/psychological pain as well as its temporary release via narcotic pain relievers like demerol and morphine (both of which Jackson has been reportedly addicted to, on and off, since the early Nineties).

This experience is also brilliantly conveyed in the song's form: About mid-way through the track, the grating beat subsides, symbolically representing the pacifying effect of the drug. "Relax, this won't hurt you," Jackson sings soothingly from the perspective of the drug.


Before I put it in

Close your eyes and count to ten

Don't cry

I won't convert you

There's no need to dismay

Close your eyes and drift away

Demerol

Demerol

Oh God he's taking demerol

Demerol

Demerol

Oh God he's taking demerol

He's tried

Hard to convince her

To be over what he had

Today he wants it twice as bad

Don't cry

I won't resent you

Yesterday you had his trust

Today he's taking twice as much



Demerol

Demerol

Oh God he's taking demerol

Demerol

Demerol

Oh God he's taking demerol


These verses are perhaps some of the most poignant (and tragic) Jackson has ever sung. Beyond the literalness of the drug itself is Jackson's persistent yearning to escape from pain, loneliness, confusion, and relentless pressure. In this brief interlude he beautifully conveys the soothing, seductive, but temporary release from reality. There is a sense of pleading, of desperation, before the high abruptly ends, and the listener is slammed back into the harsh world of accusations and anguish. Sputnik Music described this musical sequence as a "moment of absolute genius." The song, written and composed entirely by Jackson, is one of his most experimental and brilliant creations. It is a confession, a personal intervention, a witness, and a warning.


[Note: This analysis of "Morphine" was written before Michael Jackson's death. It becomes all the more tragic given reports that narcotics like demerol and morphine may have contributed to his passing.]

(Copyright by Joseph Vogel, from Man in the Music: An Album by Album Guide to Michael Jackson)

Personal note: Demerol was not found in Michael's autopsy report. Propofol and benzodiazepines were. (tears falling once again)

Here is the report here:

I think Michael was sharing about enduring pain and teaching about what to avoid in life. He shared so much. We are very fortunate to have had this magical and wonderous man on the same planet with us for the years we did have him. Thank you for all you gave us Michael Jackson!

Miss and Love You Forever Michael

Most of Michael's adult life he was 5'10" (and the best male to dress in men's fashion in the top 3 best men to dress in the history of fashion)

1-Michael Jackson
2-David Bowie
3-Fred Estaire

All 3 men wore 34 Reg and the top designers in the world say they looked BEST in clothes (over every single male model to date!!)

WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I know Michael sometimes wore weave's for his hair and not so much a wig. A weave is much lighter in weight and not a wiggy. If that's such a word lol. No, by wiggy I mean not as false looking because sometimes one can tell when a person is wearing one unless they are ultra expensive and look like real good hair. The weave being very lightweight is just gives thinner hair a little more fullness without it looking too bulky.

My question is ....we know how most blokes always give a double take when they spot a blonde haired woman (for whatever reason LOL) I wonder if Michael did the same when he spotted one Wink Wink Laughing Did he fancy blondes at all?? Laughing

Michael used a lot of chemicals throughout his life to relax (straighten) his natural hair. After years of using these products (and with aging) hair naturally thins out and loses it's fullness. To have to go through all the hassle and tedium after all the years MJ had already done for his hair, it was a great solution to wear a wig from time to time for appearances and events he attended.

Living abroad and a quieter life with the kids (out of such a public life and away from critical eyes) would allow MJ to not be so under the demand to have to always worry over his hair having to appear perfect. He wore very expensive human hair lace front wigs - made specifically for him and I think he looked wonderful as always!!

Check out the "Evolution of MJ's Hair" in gen Convo-I will add more every few days.

And regarding MJ looking twice at blonde babes-who wouldn't? So of course I would say that! Guess why? lol

I know this has nothing really to do with the trial, but why was Michael so terrified of dogs? I personally LOVE dogs both large and small.

Some people are just scared of things, either because of past experiences or just sometimes for no reason at all. I used to be afraid of big dogs because when I was little my cousins big pug knocked me down (playfully) when I came into their house one time.

I've never encountered a dog that didn't bite at least every once in awhile. Even my cute little Yorkie puppy nips now and then.

Katherine Jackson said on the stand today that Michael was afraid of dogs because his brother Randy was badly bitten by one when they were little kids.
