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.
