You died, but you're not popular so I don't care.
This just bugged me.
Yes, Micheal Jackson did die. Yes, he is the king of pop. Yes, his death was random. ...And yes, it's still in the news.
Yes, Farrah Fawcett did die. Yes, she is Charlie's angel. Yes, her death was expected soon. [old age and cancer]. No...she isn't still in the news. She really never was.
This doesn't just happen to celebrities. It happens every where. Even in my small town it did.
Jody Shadon Hash. She was my friend. She died in a house fire her sophomore year. She saved her little cousin. She got blankets and pillows and laid on top of him so he wouldn't die of smoke inhalation, like she did. He lived. She didn't. The news of her death stayed around for a week or so, then it drifted.
Adam Garcia. He wasn't my friend, but I didn't have a problem with him. He died his senior year. Two days after his birthday. He died on a hunting accident, the bullet went right through his stomach. His news is still around. And his death happened in April.
All of the above deaths are sad. But why is it that only the news of two of them stayed around? One word: Popularity.
I don't get that. They all had families, and they should all be remembered. But one shouldn't be remembered more than the other just because of popularity. What has this world come to?
Anyways, I just had to get that off of my chest, because it was bothering me. Everyone who dies should be remembered. What does everyone else think of this?
Another thing I would like people to answer me: before MJ's death, did you have even one song of his on your ipod? ...what about after his death? I am not going to lie: I had two songs of his on my Ipod. Because I liked his music before any other present day teen liked it. Now, I don't listen to it anymore, because I am different. I don't like being like everyone else. "Beat it" was one of my favorite songs, but now that it is popular again, I don't know....I just don't listen to it anymore...
