Thank You For The Memories Mike

As you know, I've expressed my love of Michael Jackson's musical genius on CITC in the past. So when a friend called yesterday and told me he went into cardiac arrest and TMZ was reporting that he was dead, I did not want to believe it. But when the LA Times reported it--I did something I've never done before--cry over a celebrity passing away.

Michael Jackson's music and talent have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I can remember as a child sitting around the television with my mom, my dad and my older brother watching Motown's anniversary and all of us going completely insane when Michael did the moonwalk. I remember going to the Capital Centre with my parents and my brother to see MJ in the Bad tour and being overwhelmed by the screams and MJ popping up out of the stage in a wolf mask during his performance of Thriller. Even through all of his problems, his loneliness and private demons, I have loved Michael Jackson's music for the joy it has brought to my life.

I pray for his mom, his children and his family. And I hope that he will best be remembered for the countless hits, his dance, his spirit and the revolution he created in music. CITC salutes you Michael.

So, the rumors were true.... Usher filed for divorce after 22 months of marriage.
I actually feel bad for Tameka because like most of the world, "Twitterville" gives this woman much grief. During the past month or so, she has been engaged in a tweet war with various folks. It's crazy because many people called her out on her various tweets about her "hubby" and how happy they were. Many people said it was a front and that Usher had already moved on. I guess they were right. Oh well, at least old girl knocked out two babies which means... you guessed it... a way to get around that pesky prenup. So, Tameka will be just fine. I know Mama Raymond is doing the happy 'I told ya so' dance.
