    Default Tabloid Junkie appreciation thread.

    This song for me is hands down the best MJ song, there is soo much stuff going on it.

    The news in the background the adlibs, the bridge is amazing to listen to!

    Everybody got someone to think about
    Don't everybody got some food to throw
    Everybody got some vicious talk
    Don't everybody got some news today
    Ah, bah, bah, bah bah
    Everybody talk about the end of their idol
    We've got those who accept it from them
    Can't stop anybody from it-then-who's-to-blame but them


    There is an unused line that made that was finally used on the MJOne show

    Everybody talk about sex about ah

    I love this song even though I can barely understand what he is saying in some parts of the song.

    "You're a parasite in black and white" is one of his sharpest lines ever. Brilliant.

    Slander
    With the words you use
    You're a parasite in black and white
    Do anything for news

    This song is amazing. It's so underappreciated in general. This is Michael's best anti media song by far.
    The vocal runs, the layered harmonies, the deep lyrics, the catchy hook and that beat!!!
    I wish more people knew about songs like this, Michael would be even more appreciated than he already is. Way ahead of his time

    Tabloid junkie has been one of my favorite songs since I first heard it - it's the best anti media song ever. I'm surprised the fan community generally didn't rate it highly.

    My sentiments exactly. I think it would have been more appreciated if he made the verses more intelligible. I still love it though.

    I like this song, but the barely-intelligible verses drive me crazy. If the Estate ever released a version with those vocals less breathy and muffled, I'd probably rank it higher.
