That Looks About Right

July 1st, 2010 // 80 Comments

So here’s controversial artist Dan Lacey’s latest portraits to commemorate the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, and you’ve got to respect someone who “presupposes” that Michael turned black when he died and then ultimately back into his younger, innocent Jackson 5 form thanks to the mere presence of Tupac. Which almost makes perfect sense until you remember Pac’s not dead and Michael was a Jehovah Witness who touched children so, seriously, shouldn’t there be more fire or is this whole Hell business actually not that bad? Because that could work for me.

    Makes sense. Jesus loves pedophiles. Just ask any priest.

    He was definitely NOT a Jehovah’s Witness and as said earlier they don’t believe any loving God would burn people HE created in eternal hellfire. Thats a horrible way to believe. Get your facts straight before you go trash talking good people. Also the pic is horrible and did not even need to be posted. Stick with boobs since that’s more on your level!

    Not pretty…

    I can see his supernatural master pulling MJs twisted child-raping soul from his lifeless disfigured body, but I’m sure it would have horns, a tail and a pitchfork in one clawed hand…

    i think they’re interesting. they carry alot of the themes that he was a lonely misunderstood man, who was controlled and murdered by the illuminati, as tupic was rumored to be as well…

    I was expecting to see a picture of Michael Jackson in a bed with Satan and Saddam Hussein a la South Park. Seriously, WTF?

    Although I find the masturbation picture very disturbing, I can also see a meaning in it. Apart from his signature glove, he is completely naked in a pose which probably every human being has stroke at least once in their life, whether they like to admit it or not. It shows that no matter how his appearance has changed and no matter what status he had, he was still human. Masturbation is not only a way of achieving pleasure, it also requires loving and accepting the own body. I hope that Michael had reached that stage at one point in his life. It also shows me how old fashioned my views are, to still think of masturbation as something unpleasant in 2010. But what gets me the most is, that my picture of Michael is rather idealized than realistic. Michael never wanted to grow up and masturbation is a symbol of growing into an adult by exploring the new body. Thinking of Michael in any form of sexual activity takes a big piece of his never ending childhood away. If Michael saw this picture, he would probably not feel so bad about it because he loved art and I’m sure that he learned to see and accept himself as an adult some time ago. Having children of his own was the biggest statement he could have made, to confirm that he finally enjoys adulthood or at least the biggest part of it. He took the responsibility of raising his children very serious and he matured with them because he couldn’t have done such a great job if he had not accepted himself as their parent rather than just their play mate. I see the masturbation picture as a statement of Michael, rising into an adult and anyone who sees something wrong with that or sees it as some perversion, should seriously begin to question their stuck up views, just like I did.
