Lisa Marie speaks out about – MICHAEL JACKSON

Lisa Marie, daughter of Elvis and ex-wife of Michael Jackson speaks out, using her blog as an outlet for her grief. 
 
The following is in her own words….
 
He Knew.

Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general.

I can’t recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my Fathers Death.

At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, “I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did.”

I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.

14 years later   I am sitting here watching on the news an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home, the big gates, the crowds outside the gates, the coverage, the crowds outside the hospital, the Cause of death and what may have led up to it and the memory of this conversation hit me, as did the unstoppable tears.

A predicted ending by him, by loved ones and by me, but what I didn’t predict was how much it was going to hurt when it finally happened.

The person I failed to help is being transferred right now to the LA County Coroners office for his Autopsy.

All of my indifference and detachment that I worked so hard to achieve over the years has just gone into the bowels of hell and right now I am gutted.

I am going to say now what I have never said before because I want the truth out there for once.

Our relationship was not “a sham” as is being reported in the press. It was an unusual relationship yes, where two unusual people who did not live or know a “Normal life” found a connection, perhaps with some suspect timing on his part. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much.

I wanted to “save him” I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened.

His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn’t know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.

At that time, In trying to save him, I almost lost myself.

He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated.

When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad.

Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson’s being or actions.

I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.

I was in over my head while trying.

I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision.

The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.

After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.

Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation.

At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.

As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact Scenario I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.

Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him.

He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together.

I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now.

He deserves to be free from all of that and I hope he is in a better place or will be.

I also hope that anyone else who feels they have failed to help him can be set free because he hopefully finally is.

The World is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right.

I really needed to say this right now, thanks for listening.

Hair Bands from RECYCLED CONDOMS !

HEALTH  WARNING !

I’m all for recycling and helping keep the planet green…  This, however, is just a little overboard!  This literally make me sick to my stomach…

Although I know that I probably shouldn’t, I always put my ponytail holder between my teeth as I pull up my hair as I’m sure millions of women do.  NEVER AGAIN!  I may never wear my hair in a pony tail again…

BEIJING (AFP) – Used condoms are being recycled into hair bands in southern China threatening to spread sexually-transmittable diseases they were originally meant to prevent, state media reported Tuesday

In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products, rubber hair bands have been found in local markets and beauty salonsin Dongguan and Guangzhou cities in southern Guangdong province, China Daily newspaper said .

‘These cheap and colorful rubber bands and hair ties sell well . . . . Threatening the health of local people,’ it said .
Despite being recycled, the hair bands could still contain bacteria and viruses, it said .

‘People could be infected with AIDS, (genital) warts or other diseases if they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while waving their hair into plaits or buns,’ the paper quoted a local dermatologist who gave only his surname, Dong, as saying . A bag of ten of the recycled bands sells for just 25 S en (three cents), much cheaper than others on the market, accounting for their popularity, the paper said .

Remembering Michael Jackson

4351-the-essential-michael-jacksonHow come with every celebrity’s death the world goes haywire?  Me included.  Is it the shock that death escapes no one?  I always feel a sense of “shock” and “disbelief” whenever a famous person dies.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t shed heartfelt tears, mourn and grieve over people I don’t know.  I just feel a sense of sadness.  I still remember where I was when Princess Diana died. I was glued to the TV coverage (internet coverage was still expensive).  I would  run out to tell my husband of any new detail that emerged.   I also remember being on my way to work when the announcement of John Lennon’s murder hit  the radio waves.  Give Peace A Chance was playing for days after that.  The death of Elvis…OMG, the King was Dead…the drug abuse…the scandal.  The King of Rock and Roll being found dead on his bathroom floor!

Now will come all of the rumours and stories….Again, don’t get me wrong…that’s what we do here…gossip.  Sorting through all of the facts and fiction, trying to figure out what the truth is.  We all add our opinions and thoughts, to make sense of a young death. 

What I find most upsetting about Michael Jackson’s death is the out pouring of support that has hit the Internet.  Where was the support many years ago when Michael was being investigated for child molestation charges.  Granted he was never found guilty of any charges, but rumours of huge financial settlements have been made.  All of a sudden Michael is dead, and the world is immortalizing him like the second coming of Jesus.  How come after we die, people “forget” the bad things about us, forget how they judged us, and dogged us, and hated us?  Even Martin Bashir, the reporter who spent 8 months with Michael and ambushed him on video is remembering a wonderful human being today. 

Granted Michael was definitely out there, weird in fact.  Between his fascination with children to his many cosmetic procedures, he was definitely a weird bird.  I always enjoyed his music and watching him dance was something else.  I remember being in junior high school when the Jackson 5 recorded ABC, singing along with the radio every time it was played.   I remember the hype before Thriller came out on MTV.  It was an anticipated event.  Moon-walking…..who hasn’t attempted to do it?  Billie Jean, Beat It, Thriller who hasn’t danced to these tunes at one time or another? 

The world has lost a fantastic musical talent, probably one of the greatest of all times.  Anybody that lived through the 80’s can testify to that.  Only time will tell what Michael Jackson will be remembered for.

Michael Jackson’s LIFE and DEATH following Elvis Presley EXAMPLE

Not since the death of Elvis Presley on August 16, 1977 has a death if a musical legend touched so many people until today.  Michael Jackson was pronounced dead today at age at age 50. 

Like Elvis, ( The King of Rock ) and Michael’s former father-in-law, Michael Jackson, ( The King of Pop ) seems to be following in his famous ex-father-in-law’s footsteps in more ways than one, or even two.  Not only were these the most famous two people that have ever lived but they both, at least for a while, also loved Lisa Marie, Elvis’s daughter.   It seems, however, they  may have one other thing in common.  Long time family friend, Brian Oxman, speculates that the King of Pop’s death may have also have been been drug related as was this ex-father-in-laws. 

The family friend was very adimate during his press release about the Jackson’s drug usage and warnings he had given to the family, describing the people around him as “empowering his addiction”. 

Of course no facts will be known until the results of the autopsy are released.

Ron Weisner, producer of the BET Awards (8 p.m. live ET Sunday), says the show is being overhauled to include an opening tribute to Jackson that will include surprise guests, reports USA TODAY’s Edna Gundersen

Michael Jackson's Death Possibly Drug Related?

A Jackson family spokesman and attorney, Brain Oxman, has made a statement that he warned the family that Michael was abusing prescription drugs.   Oxman makes a comment that the Anna Nicole Smith drug situation was nothing compared to what was happening to Michael Jackson. 

 Watch the video below for full details.

 

 

Also, Michael’s former publicist Michael Levine said that he was unsurprised by the death.  ”I must confess I am not surprised by today’s tragic news,” Levine said.  ”Michael has been on an impossibly difficult and often self-destructive journey for years. His talent was unquestionable but so too was his discomfort with the norms of the world.  ”A human simply can not withstand this level of prolonged stress.”

Neverland Welcomes Michael Jackson

michael-jackson-neverland

Michael Jackson was pronounced dead today.  Paramedics were called at approximately 12:26 PM where they found a doctor performing CPR on Michael.  Michael was not breathing and in full cardiac arrest.  Once transported to UCLA Medical Center his condition was listed as grave and he was reportedly in a coma. Details are now emerging that Michael never was revived.

The LA Times have reported, “The circumstances of Jackson’s death remain unclear. Law enforcement sources said that Los Angeles Police Department robbery-homicide detectives have opened an investigation into the death, though they stressed there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing. The detectives plan to interview relatives, friends and Jackson’s doctors to try to figure out what happened. The L.A. County coroner’s office will determine a cause of death.”

 Hundreds of people are converging on the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles as word spreads across radio, television and the Internet that Michael Jackson died.  The crowd, which has been growing  all day is gathered in front of one of the entrances to the hospital.  People in the crowd are openly mourning Michal’s passing while helicopters and news vans are clogging most streets leading to the hospital.

The same scenario is expected worldwide as news of Michael’s death hits other countries.  Michael while shunned since his child molestation charges in the US has remained a huge pop icon worldwide, especially in Germany and Japan.

Rest in Peace Michael
