Why do people get so “gaga” over celebrities ? Totally baffling to me ! I’m not a MJ fan but I do acknowledge he was a talented, skilled entertainer and musician and of course it’s sad when anyone dies. MJ was like anyone else really; he had his good points and his bad points (which I won’t get into here). In any case I think it is totally irrational the way people adore and even worship celebrities and sports figures…
