Alrighty, I am still obsessing on the fact that Michael Jackson as a brand to entertain, still rocks on, because his architecture as an entertaining King, has a life force of it’s own–with or without him.
That’s nuts. For a fragile dude, he sure built a solid kingdom of entertainment to model. Look at this stuff fly. It’s the real deal of a King. Dance is celebrated in these images of art and performance. Monarch butterflies and Doves feature too.
These are the symbols that Jackson’s children and Miss Janet Jackson – MJ’s sister, are presenting to his fans and the world.
There is no more successful American who proved they could cross over and appeal to India, like Michael Jackson. He “lived beyond color lines, geographical borders and boundaries” to paraphrase his sister’s Rhythm Nation lyrics.
He was cross-cultural, all people he saw as being the same. As a culture maker, and America’s King of Pop he saw his role as creating symbology for his fans, so that they could have a sense of global culture that resonated with them all.
Seriously though, as New Zealand is the nation that creates Jackson-Taylor Monarchs in 3D in the 2010′s of cinema mastery –we perhaps need a ‘royal cinematic meeting of entertainment minds’ with one of MJ’s kids or his nieces or nephews (we’re not fussy), to star in our Hobbit films, to cement that point. What a cool idea.
Let me play ‘stand in’ Hollywood casting agent on this one… We’ll go for Blanket Jackson thanks, as a Hobbit prince of Latino descent. :)Having seen both Michael and Janet Jackson both perform live in concert in Auckland at Mt Smart Stadium, New Zealand with friend, Trinity Brooke, I think Blanket would rock, following in the footsteps of the family, in a Hobbit film shot in 3D and Middle Earth. Imagine that! A real Jackson Hobbit too. Perfect!
Enjoy these images, from Blanket’s Estates’ one page ad in the LA Times today. A paper that services a city and associated cities of 20 million people.

A blogger exists to feed a supply and demand relationship of people who love keeping up with the lives of fame obsessed stars. Thankfully though, ex-tabloid editor, Jake Halpern, who was used to dealing with hundreds of crazy stars and their publicists clamoring for magazine column inches every week, quit his job, to write this book.
The Fame Junkies claims that America’s favorite addiction is fame. When you think about it, Jake is not too far from the truth. It goes hand in hand with being a ‘warring’ nation making a name for herself. The essence of winning war is an addiction to have more fame and territory in the world than you already have. America wears the war badge for the Western World’s interests. A downside of empire, is a love of fame.
So, I’m down for Halpern’s views. They seem valid in a city like Hollywood. (more…)
There are still 2 1/2 more months to go, until voting is complete, but at this stage Britney Spears and Beyonce Knowles are tied in a neck and neck race to be the most searched for celebrity women of 2009.
America loves a restored trainwreck star like Spears just as much as they love their President’s #1 pick of star entertainers like Beyonce. Britney has achieved her shared #1 spot at the pinacle of stars masterfully with her comeback Circus album and her successful Circus Tour that her critics said she could not complete. Spears just did it.
Beyonce has just always been an amazing talented quadruple-threat of entertainment from Day 1 when she debuted in Destiny’s Child. She just keeps getting better each year.
Here’s The Top 10 List of Most Googled Celebrity Women in America and the number of search requests for each per month, as at September 2009.
#1. Britney Spears –37,200,000 name searches per month -tie with Beyonce.
#1. Beyonce Knowles–37,200,000 searches per month– tie with Britney Spears.
#3. Miley Cyrus –30,400,00 searches per month.
#4. Madonna–24,900 searches per month.
#5. Taylor Swift–16,600,000 searches per month.
Kristen Stewart is the leading actress of her generation. Here’s what the Twilight Saga megastar has to say about the price of fame and for security reasons having to stay indoors a lot:
“I’ve been working as an actress since I was very young, and I know a lot of people who are actors who don’t have to deal with having a persona The whole meaning of the word is that it’s made up, and it’s like I didn’t even get to make up my own. It can be annoying.”
… “Some nights, I think, ‘You know what? I don’t care. I’m just going to do what I want to do.’ Then the next day I think, ‘Ugh. Now everyone thinks I’m going out to get the attention.’ But it’s like, no, I actually, for a second, thought that maybe I could be like a normal person.”
It’s a high price to pay for playing one character in a film role. So we hear this chick, bigtime! It’s a good thing she has Robert Pattinson as her partner in life and film to console one another. Their fame stakes are just as high as each others.
