Earlier I wrote a blog called Virtual rape, about the disrespectful videos and pictures out there of Michael. Videos and pictures that almost always has a sexual character. A lot of you felt offended by this blog, you would never do something like that.. Yet more and more seems to fall for this, and this time I will show you some of the pictures. I didn’t do that the last time, out of respect for Michael, but in this blog you will only find manipulated photos of Michael.
No real pictures.. consider yourself warned by now.
These pictures are used as Twitter or Youtube backgrounds, or in forum signatures. There are even topics on forums, dedicated to these pictures, and everybody paste all the pictures they can find of this type.
It seems like most of you find these pictures (and Michael) smoking hot, though some of you get a strange feeling by looking at these pictures. I am one of those that get this strange feeling.
I do find Michael good-looking, adorable and hot too. But not in these pictures. I think he was hot being just Michael – being himself, and not only the young Michael, but the one from all the stages of his life.
One of the pictures I have found, shows Michael in a sleeveless t-shirt and muscular arms. The reality is that this image, is made of Will Smith’s body and Michael’s head. It has nothing to do with reality, Michael never looked like this and frankly I find this picture a little repulsive.
I thought you found MICHAEL hot? Do you love Michael or Will or do you want a hybrid? Wasn’t Michael as himself, good enough for you, since you are drooling over pictures like this? Every picture I am showing you here, only has Michael’s head – the rest belongs to someone else. Click the pictures to see the original photo. If you love Michael, don’t you find it a little disrespectful, to manipulate his image like this?
Does good and loyal fans even need to twist his image like this at all? Aren’t we uniting to protect and preserve the real Michael Jackson? Instead of that “make-believe” that the press made, and many people still believe are the real Michael. Some of the photos in this blog, were found in a forum that has the subtitle; the real friends of Michael.. Hmm..
Well, I know most fans see it as their mission, to teach the world about the real Michael Jackson, and many really does that, but these pictures are not supportive in that. And spreading them among the other fans in forums or social medias, will only make it harder to portray the real Michael.
If I have to put this in clear talk, these pictures are lies. They don’t portray Michael as he really was, and they don’t consist very much of Michael. They are made up, make-believe, product of someones fantasies but most of all; lies.
We didn’t like the way the media lied about Michael, that is something we can agree on without any big discussion. But is it okay for the fans to lie about him?
Aren’t we just doing the same the media did for his whole life? Lying about him and portraying him as something else?
This link is to a collage of manipulated photos of Michael, the original photos are there as well. And once again the word Virtual rape comes to my mind, because he was not like this and he would never participate in photo shoots like this. So I don’t think he would like to be portrayed like this..
Think about what type of fan you are. Do you want to protect and preserve the real image of Michael or this?
If you believe he is alive, respect his privacy. If you believe he is gone, respect his memory..
