MJ

MICHAEL JACKSON

Carry Me
Like You Are My Brother
Love Me Like A Mother
Will You Be There?

Weary
Tell Me Will You Hold Me
When Wrong, Will You Scold Me
When Lost Will You Find Me?

But They Told Me
A Man Should Be Faithful
And Walk When Not Able
And Fight Till The End
But I’m Only Human

(Will You Be There – Michael Jackson)

Hampir 3 minggu berlalu sejak kematian The King of Pop. Tapi ternyata cukup bikin gw ikut sedih jg😦 mgkn krn byk yang ikut bersedih, mgkn krn gw merasa kehilangan sosok luar biasa, mgkn krn merasa terlalu byk hal menyedihkan dalm hidupnya? entahlah..

Dulu gw ga begitu mengenal Michael Jackson (MJ). Yang ada di pikiran gw adalah hal-hal negatif ttg dia krn begitulah yang selalu gw denger dari berita. Cerita tentang operasi plastik kulitnya hingga menjadi putih, cerita pas dia ngegendong anaknya di atas balkon, kasus pelecehan anak, dan sebagainya. Tanpa pernah gue cek lebih lanjut kebenaran beritanya..

So, ketika pemberitaan mengenai meninggalnya MJ muncul, berasa nothing special for me.. Hingga akhirnya pagi itu iseng gue online dan hampir di semua pemberitaan mengisahkan tentang Paris Jackson (putri MJ) yang menyampaikan kalimat mengharukan ketika acara pemakaman itu. Iseng gw klik.. dan gw terharu abiss..

“Ever since i born, Daddy has been the best father you sould imagine. I just want to say, i love you so much”.. (Paris Jackson)

Gw merasa pastilah ada hal yang luar biasa di balik sosok seorang MJ. Jadilah satu harian itu gw menghabiskan banyak waktu utk searching banyak hal tentang MJ. Gw cari interview MJ d Youtube dan menemukan interview MJ dan Oprah pada tahun sekitar 1996 itu. So, ada beberapa hal menarik yang gw temukan. Mengenai tuduhan operasi plastik yang diituduhkan kepadanya:

Oprah: OK, then let’s go to the thing that is most discussed about you, that is, the color of your skin…is most obviously different than when you were younger, and so I think it has caused a great deal of speculation and controversy as to what you have done or are doing, are you bleaching your skin, and is your skin getting lighter because you don’t like being black?
Michael: Number one, as far as I know of there is no such thing as skin bleaching. I have never seen it, I don’t know what it is.
Oprah: Well they used to have those products, I remember growing up always hearing “always use bleach and glow”, but you have to have about 300,000 gallons.
Michael: OK, but number one, this is the situation. I have a skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of my skin, it’s something that I cannot help, OK? But when people make up stories that I don’t want to be what I am it hurts me.
Oprah: So it is…
Michael: It’s a problem for me that I can’t control…but what about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun, to become darker, to become other than what they are. No one says nothing about that.
Oprah: So when did this start? When did your…when did the color of your skin start to change?
Michael: Oh boy, I don’t….sometime after Thriller, around Off The Wall, Thriller, sometime around then.
Oprah: But what did you think?
Michael: It’s in my family, my father said it’s on his side. I can’t control it, I don’t understand. I mean it makes me very sad. I don’t want to go into my medical history because that is private, but that’s the situation here.

Percakapan lengkapnya dapat dilihat di SINI. Penyakit kulit yang diderita oleh MJ namanya adalah Vitiligo yang mengganggu pigmentasi kulit. Untuk gambaran lebih lanjut tentang penyakit ini bs liat di SINI.

Terlepas dari semua tuduhan dan berita miring tentangnya, MJ jg dkenal sebagai sosok yang berjiwa sosial tinggi. Beberapa lagunya yang mengusung tema sosial antara lain: We Are The World (dibuat untuk menggalang dana bagi korban kelaparan Afrika), Heal The World, What More Can I Give, dan Earth Song dengan lirik-lirik yang begitu menyentuh. Dan dia juga mendirikan Heal The World Foundation yang memperhatikan masalah anak-anak. Justru publik lebih suka mengekspos hal-hal negatif berkenaan dengannya..!

MJ terkenal dengan aksi panggung spektakuler, tarian Moonwalk, dan dance robot. Gw rasa ga ada artis yang punya performa panggung yang luar biasa seperti dia. Aksinya di atas panggung selalu meninggalkan kesan WAHH. Mgkn karena dia perfeksionis dan all out di setiap penampilan..

Dan gw ikut berduka atas kepergiannya..

In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tribulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I’ll Never Let You Part
For You’re Always In My Heart.
(Will You Be There – Michael Jackson)

Rest In Peace Michael Jackson..
