今天《卫报》凌晨第二版上的头版文章,作者 Richard Williams 的开头句子是这样的:

Michael Jackson may have spent his last years mutating into an ever more freakish version of himself, eventually becoming a prize exhibit in the celebrity zoo, but under the outlandish surface was a singer who had come by his fame not via mere eccentricity or a stroke of luck, but through a genuinely remarkable talent that deserved to conquer the world.

全文:For all his flaws he was the greatest entertainer of his age.

One response so far

    ‘Jackson’s public image has, perhaps irrevocably, been shifted from the pre-pubescent Peter Pan figure of Neverland Ranch to something far less innocent.’

    Human being invariably inclined to stereotype MJ to a category,which,childish, innocent, peter pan, eccentricity, freakish with remarkable talent.

    I need to see another face of such guy.

    He almost 50, more than 40 years performed amongst audience, artist, businessman, government staff. He was supposed to know something as an adult to the world. Dun use ‘ boy-man’ to interpret him again! Tired enough!
