Crotch Grabbing

I know that the title is unseemly but it is what this post is about.....Michael Jackson's crotch grabbing. First of all, I was not a Michael Jackson music fan but I wasn't against his music either. Over the years I had seen snippets of his videos and knew that he liked his hand/crotch dance move but since he has died and the videos have been on non-stop, I've had enough. Not only did he like that dance move but his costumes all seemed to point to the crotch. Okay, I'm an old fogey but what is that crotch thing all about?

I only know that I'm damned tired of hearing his name and seeing his image on just about every stupid channel.....'nuf already. He's dead, and he's going to stay that way. Just to keep it going, LaToya is not claiming he was murdered. She said this in a paid interview -- that tell you what the motivation for keeping the story going? Yup, money.

I think there was a SNL skit
a few decades back that had the
news talking heads saying
"In other news.....General Franco is still dead"

The crotch thing...scandalous, the first couple of times only.

Billie, I second all you said in your blog. I guess I'm an old fogey too.........I just didn't "get" him at all, but some of his music I did like. Since I"m in Canada without a TV I have blessedly not seen any of the coverage - Halleluia!

I think he probably started that trend that is now so prevalent in hip-hop and reggaetone. It really doesn't bother me but I don't see the need for croth grabbing as a dance move.

I do dislike that he is being so glorified. I like his music but the person? Not so much. You will never convince me that he is (was) not guilty of the child molestation charges.

Well you are right about the crotch grabbing. I never did like that part of his dancing. He studied the greats like Astaire and Kelly and a lot of his videos were of that nature until he brought that part in. Other than that, I loved the way he danced, God rest his soul. Have a great day.

Mimi was complaining about all the crotch grabbing in his videos the other day and I told her "at least he is more entertaining than baseball, same amount of crotch grabbing but there is something to watch in between."

Oh, I'm so glad to find out that I'm not alone with this but I still don't know WHY are he did it?

Maybe he had to keep checking that everything was still there. His insecurity was well-known.

Billie,

He sells, that is why so much attention is focus on him and his crotch. Why is him the king of pop? He is just another singer. I do not get it, maybe I am old too...or maybe we are wise not to fall into that.

I've always found that move to be very obscene too.
