Yikes! Could you give us a warning when you’re going to post an image this frightening?
Sheesh. Isn’t Halloween over?
What, no choice of “freakishly ghoulish?”
Talk about someone who has *issues*….
Why is that white woman on the cover of Ebony?
I look back at the Thriller-era Michael Jackson and weep for what was and what could have been.
Michael, I threatened to run a Katherine Harris photoretrospective if we came in last. Have a heart, man.
Because Sandra Bullock has always been a champion of the various causes in poverty-stricken Africa.
Sure about that?
and yes the subtitle one was a joke…
congrats on leading the vote count on your category in the weblog awards, john!
it proves that becoming a trans-agenda’d individual pays off!
Good fucking god.
re that photo, is there any part of his face that isn’t artificial, other than the eyeballs?
The Other Andrew
In the interests of equal time, and in the interests of getting more votes, I think that one of John’s trusty sidekicks should have to post a picture of Jennifer Connelly, Monica Bellucci, or Laetitia Casta.
Can I change my votes to another blog? What a reward for voting for BJ. Yikes!
Yeah, that’s one funny video. :-) That “mar mar mar goli mar” doesn’t make any sense though. He’s saying beat you with a bullet. But he doesn’t have a weapon on him. Maybe he’s asking her (and maybe the rest of us) out of his misery :D
LOL it’s an Indian impersonator LOL.
Me too, Krista. It makes me sad to think about how much he had to hate himself to change the way he looked so drastically.
It isn’t just the extensive plastic surgery/bleach bathing. It’s the fact that even a critter from Mars could tell he’s had his face done. And redone and done again…
The man makes too much money to go to Big Bob’s Bone Saw and BBQ Hut for his surgery.
But I’d like to shake the hand of the joker who designed the cover.
On the one hand, I agree that from all reports this is a sad individual, should have learned to be happy with his natural appearance, yadda yadda yadda. On the other hand, it’s not up to a bunch of largely-not-African-American bloggers to decide how an African-American entertainer *should* look, is it? Which may be why Ebony chose to put him on the cover in the first place… because, apart from the philosophical issue of racial & cultural identity, MAYJA LOOK, SUCKA! (and getting ya ta LOOK is what selling magazines is all about).
Diana Ross is looking a little peaked. Is her health okay?
It is rather tragic that this very talented man is so seriously mentally ill . . .
I’m a POC, and I see MJ changing his appearance as a sign of self hatred. YMMV.
Robot Chicken had a skit where Michael Jackson was watching a demonstration of a giant robot of himself moonwalking and whatnot. Then it spots the Big Boy outside a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant, goes over to it and starts pulling its pants down. MJ (the ‘real’ one), says “Mmmmmm, Big Boy”.
Seth Green is a riot.
Quality, not quantity. The ‘net already has a K-Lo.
I used to wear my hair like that too, back in the late 70s, when I was a White teenage boy.
Let’s face it, Michael had a complete blackendectomy.
However, it is all right for one blogger to arbitrarily decide the ethnicities of a bunch of other bloggers whom she has never met.
I wonder if this means I’m not allowed to mock Androgyny Coulter’s Adam’s apple. Not that I give a flaming crap, but I do like to know these things.
Dreggas, I’ll see you and indian impersonator and raise phillipino convicts here
that was a “see you one”…
Jake, just don’t mock (m)Ann Coulter’s adams apple over at the GOS, they don’t like that one bit. Why, when she(it) has been calling them traitors and heathens for years now? Maybe because they don’t like the transgender implications?
I half expect Ann Coulter to one day reveal that she is a he (who really likes being a she), and a liberal to boot. And the whole thing was just an experiment to see how much crap could be dished out with the blessings of the right. How outrageous they could get and still have the support of the right.
Man, that would be worth the pain if having to hear about her crap all these years. And the right wing males who drooled over her would gag (or not…lol!).
Now that would be funny!
Ebony Magazine was better inspired when they put Mariah Carey on the cover.
Or Halle Berry,
Man, I bet the airbrushing on that photo landed at least three retouchers in the intensive care ward.
That’s how I know I’m getting old. I can remember when Michael Jackson was talented, black and male.
What Annie said.
How are they on calling her a crazy fucked-up ambulatory piece of garbage? Hmmm. You know, with all of her other ugly personality traits there really is no need to comment on trAnn’s aa or cinder block jaw or big “thank god she isn’t a proctologist” hands.
Ugg. Do NOT want. Performance art is fine (in its place) but we have to draw the line somewhere.
And damn it, now I have “Lola” stuck in my head.
The Other Steve
Speaking of Michael Jackson
The Neverland ranch is in foreclosure
Why not? Are white poeple not allowed to say “batshit crazy” about people of colour? If it’s racist to call MJ a nut and a freak, let me know and I’ll get my liberal card revoked.
well calling Mann Coulter transgendered is offensive to the transgendered and I can kinda understand why. I wouldn’t want any credit or association with that either. Having quite a few T friends I can see why they get a bit miffed in some ways.
As for her being a liberal or something. She is in a relationship with some big named lib and they are in love. She’s nothing more than howard stern for the conservative set.
I have to agree with the stinkin canuck (tongue in cheek). I am an equal opportunity prick. If you are a celebrity I don’t give a flying fuck what your skin color is, if you’re bat shit crazy I will call you bat shit crazy. If you want to be the male, white incarnation of your sister janet then you are, indeed bat shit crazy. It’s not a case of telling them what they “should look like”.
What’s Michael Jackson got to do with Africa? Or anything anymore, for that matter?
To my POV he’s only slightly more relevant than Phil Spector at this point. Would Phil Spector grace the cover of any national magazine in 2007? Maybe “Misogynist Gun Nut Quarterly”.
Jackson probably can’t help being so indulgently weird. He traded in whatever creative energies he once had in his quest for Ultimate Whiteness, and that’s really sad, but not particularly newsworthy.
Ebony or Ivory? More like Photoshop.
Who cares anymore…
