Have You Seen His Childhood?

Say what you will about Michael Jackson, but if this article doesn’t make your heart ache for him, you probably have no soul.

He has even begun to regret having plastic surgery and spends much of his time staring at his reflection in the mirror.

‘I don’t know what I was thinking back then,’ he recently said. ‘Everyone makes mistakes when they’re young, I guess. But I still look OK, don’t I? I mean, for 40?’

When reminded that, in fact, he was about to turn 50, Jackson gave a sad, half smile.

‘It all went by so fast, didn’t it? I wish I could do it all over again, I really do.’

But for Michael Jackson, it seems, the time for a comeback has passed. ‘I’m tired,’ he said last week. ‘I’ve got nothing left to give. I just want to be left alone. Is that so bad?’

As if that isn’t bad enough, they’ve got a digital age-progression photo of how Michael may have looked, had he never undergone the knife.

Kind of normal and attractive, no? I weep for all the things that could have been.

Hey (pre-teen) Ladies!

TwitchFilm has the first photos of my main man, Zac Efron, in character as “Richard” in the upcoming Linklater flick “Me and Orson Welles”!

“The story of a whirlwind week in 1937 NYC when a young aspiring actor (Efron) is thrown into the middle of Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre Company on the eve of the opening of Welles’ historic staging of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. During this week, Richard will find romance with a worldly older woman (Claire Danes), become immersed in a creative experience few are afforded, and learn the downside of crossing the imperious, brilliant Welles (strikingly portrayed by newcomer Christian McKay).  Richard is about to grow up FAST.”

How fast? Fast enough to make him age-appropriate for a hypothetical 20-something blogger with a comprehensive knowledge of several High School Musical dance routines?

In a related matter, this morning a google ad asked me who was hotter, Zefron or the Jonas Brothers. Talk about a no-brainer! The Jonas Brothers don’t even actually exist! Psssht.
