    Default Madonna on Michael

    Madonna has been doing some serious Michael worship lately, from yesterdays Instagram posts from the London exhibit, regular pics of them together and even a pic showing she sleeps on a pillow he has autographed. I remember an interview from a long time ago asking who she admired, after being REALLY pressed she said MJ and obviously the MTV speech after he passed but did I miss something re how big a fan she was during 80s 90s and 00s?

    *not bashing her by the way, fans united

    No you didn't miss anything. I'm positive she did an interview telling him to get rid of the fedora and white socks. This 'post death' appreciation is pathetic, but she is not the only one.

    Didn't she try to seduce Michael into having sex with her? Michael even called her a witch. He obviously didn't like her as she obviously didn't treat him right, when they spend time together in the early 90s. I'm not buying this fake love she has been showing Michael since his death.

    And she herself acknowledged the turnaround in the VMA speech.

    It might have cleared her conscience and even redeemed her, but it sure did not help Michael when he needed a friend the most. Hopefully her speech put many people in the industry to shame. I doubt it.

    I always found the MTV VMA speech she gave... odd. Some parts were really well done, but so much of it was self-serving when she referenced back to herself so much. Especially when she mentioned about how "she knows what it's like to walk down the street and feel the whole world is against you." To me, that so belittles what Michael had to endure, which she, and virtually no other celebrity, had to go through.

    What? At the VMA speech she talks about "the witch hunt" that began after they had their brief fling in the early 90s about the stories that began coming out about Michael and compared that to her dealings with the press. I was simply juxtaposing them to say Madonna being scandalous and the media going at her was different to the media making Mike into a literal monster.

    Madonna has always loved Michael and she no doubt misses him from the world, in the same way that each and every one of us does. I won't criticise her, diminish her feelings, or right to express them, just because Michael voiced some distrust of her character, or her motives. I just think she was too brash and too forward for there to be a deep long-lasting relationship between them, but there definitely was a spark of romantic interest there on both sides, in my opinion. I admire Madonna's strength and her courage under fire, throughout her entire career. She has always been brutally honest, independent and true to herself and has forged her own way as a true entertainment icon. Her VMA speech was a tribute to Michael, spoken from her own point of view - it was beautiful and truthful.

    That's True,but I feel that all the support,wouldn't have stopped him from doing what he did.

    "We" is referring to the celebs who could get close..

    3 months after the man was dead and gone. Too little far too late.

    Well she explains that "sometimes we have to lose someone to truly appreciate them".

    She's saying that his death changed prompted a re-evaulation/turnaround. She couldn't acknowledge it any earlier, that being the case.

    She was right to use this phrasing, I think. The world's most beloved child/adult had become a target of ridicule and in some cases, far far worse. She's speaking in a very general sense clearly but I think on the whole it paints the right sort of picture. Clearly, we, the fans, are not included in this.
