This week the movie
Aviator, staring Leonardo Di Caprio, hit
theatres, yet with poor ratings. Showing once again, bio's don't make
the grade as violence and sex does. But was one movie that Di Caprio
really put his entire soul into. Directed my one of Michael's best
friends, Martin Scorsese. It's one movie that Michael himself would have
loved to have acted in.
Howard Hughes is one of many of Michael's
idols. And he hoped that Di Caprio would do the man justice. And believe
me he did.
Yet while watching the movie myself, one
couldn't help think of Michael too, as I watched how a great man, loved
by some, despised by others, resembled slightly the same defeat as
Jackson, only in different ways.
Both were two of the world's greatest
people, with great minds and ideals, and both with plans beyond anyone's
imagination that were far beyond anyone's imagination.
Michael for his brilliance in the
entertainment world, Hughes for Aeronautics. Both suffer to some degree
of childhood abuse and share the same thoughts on germ warfare. Other
somewhat similarities are the fact that the public considered them weird
and have idiosyncrasies. Yet these two powerful men were always
under the microscope, driven to their demise by those who couldn't stand
to see them succeed.
Hughes mind was far more brilliant
than most, he was a man beyond his time, and although he suffered from
Compulsive disorder, his successes were rallied for years. His
successors couldn't stand to see him succeed and knew of his
paranoia of germs, took advantage of this fact to take him down.
Michael on the other hand, suffered the same
collapse, his love for children, was the ultimate weapon his enemies
used to take him down, destroying his kingdom.
Yet unlike Hughes, the strength and
fortitude that Jackson has now, will help him see him through the rough
road ahead of him. His faith and family and friends, not to mention
fans, will see him through his turbulence and be there for him every
step of the way. He will not be alone. And we shall see him vindicated
Michael, unlike Hughes, won't let the enemy
take him out, instead he will succeed in being on top, maybe not like
before, but in a much better way through different avenues that will
once again earn the respect once again in the world he once knew and
with those he once done business with.
