please read great I think

  • on: March 16, 2010, 10:16:15 AM
found this michael said this about the concerts



To quit showbusiness at the height of one's powers is no easy thing. And so when I made my Very Special Unique Exclusive Announcement at the O2 Arena the other day, it meant so much to me to be surrounded by the love of my supporters. You know, it's funny: I could only see about 25 people because of the dark glasses and the way the promoters had set up the lighting. But I'm told it was 40,000, and I believe it. Why wouldn't I? I have a trusting soul. And I believe that trust is a sign of God's work here on earth, like a child's simple smile of innocent wonder at the magical sight of a miraculous unicorn, or a tree.

When I say that these concerts - at the O2 Arena in London in summer 2009 - will be the last I ever play, I mean it: they will be the last concerts I ever play at the O2 Arena in London in summer 2009. If Barbra Streisand can say a painful goodbye and then vanish for ever, so can I.

Oh, I expect to be criticised; there are some very, very devilish people out there. They'll say it's a cynical attempt to pay my multimillion-dollar debts. They'll predict that I'll repeat the trick around the world, to squeeze cash from my dwindling core of pathologically enthusiastic fans. But these critics can't feel love; they can't dream; they've never known the joy of a harmless platonic sleepover. They want to divide us, but in the court of the King of Pop, all are welcome: all races, all ages, all creeds and all major credit cards.

Nor the part about the "Court of the King of Pop".  That's a stretch for me.

Those don't sound like words from Michael to me.  It's just not 'him'.

Sounds like satire to me. It definitely had hints of Michael in it but others were blatantly anti-Michael-esque.

I also think MJ would spell "criticise" the American way "criticize" with a "z".

There were not 40,000 fans, it is not Michael's words.  But, where is the link to source?

I just looked up the writer, Oliver Burkeman.  He seems to post alot of his OWN interpretation of the events.  This is his web page and other articles.

Yeah  when I read that  about the last concerts at the 02 Areana in London but the way I read that is that it was the last concerts at the 02 in London, but not anywhere else so he could do concerts in USA or elsewhere in England, just last concerts at the 02, so we will be alright for Jermains Wembley gig!
