Dance for me now I'm deeead!

So inevitably, dear readers, you’ve been bombarded with news story after news story re: the Michael Jackson Memorial. Instead of ya’ll thinking m.snowe has been invoking some grotesque show of poetic silence by not writing about this public outpouring of gratuitous grief, m.snowe will clearly state she thinks while he was an exceptional cultural icon and breakthrough artist, all this fuss is a bit ridiculous. But let’s make it into something ridiculous and enjoyable then, shall we?

So the cold and emaciated corpse of Michael got these people to show up and/or contribute:

  • Kobe Bryant
  • Wesley Snipes
  • Spike Lee
  • Smokey Robinson
  • Nelson Mandela (wrote an address, didn’t attend)
  • Diana Ross
  • Queen Latifa
  • Maya Angelou (sent a [bland] poem for the occasion)
  • Mariah Carey

m.snowe’s statement and question to her noble readers is thus: You’re all clearly awesome and worthy of a star-studded affair once you kick the proverbial bucket–so who would you want singing, addressing, poeticizing, etc., for you?

m.snowe won’t tell you all of her own picks yet, but let’s just say Derek Jeter will start by hitting a 50-home run salute, followed by a poetic reading of Rod Stewart’s “Have I Told You Lately” by Dominic West, followed by a dramatic interpretation of m.snowe’s life performed by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
