I get home from NYC and what do I see? Negative images of Mike in the paperand on TV, portraying him like some spoiled kid having a temper tantrum.
Here is what really happened!
Friday July 5th: I went to NYC with Dirty Diana 2000, Chocolate PYT, and SP777. It started off exciting. Luther Vandross was on our plane! (with his
stuck up self) We arrived in NYC around 1 pm got to The Palace hotel around 2. There were fans outside waiting for Michael. We asked the bellman who
took us up to our room if he'd seen any celebrities. He said yes. I said Michael? He said yeah Michael's here! So we're getting all excited just knowing this was our chance to finally get close to Michael.
Well it wasn't our Mike. It was Michael Jordan! What a let down! Anyway we
spent Friday trying to find Mike. Unfortunately no one knew where the lil
dude was! And we never did find out where he was staying. Friday night we
saw MIB2. Michael was great. I know I'm biased but still. 2 short parts in
the movie but he was good! He was agent M.
Back to the Palace, but still no sign of Michael. He simply wasn't there!
Saturday July 6th: This was the most magical day of my 15 years being a fan.
We went to the demo around 12 or so, and there were already tons of people
there! Newspaper reps and media reporters were interviewing everyone. I am
so proud to say the banner we made was a hit! We were also interviewed and
asked to pose for pics holding our banner. It said KING OF POP FANATICS NEW
ORLEANS among other things. Well we figured how the streets work. They were
one way streets so there was only a certain route MJ had to take coming to
the demo. So we stood on the Madison Avenue side of the demo to get a good
spot. Dang we stood out there for 3 hours before Mike showed up but it was
worth it. I tried telling the cops that telling MJ fans to stay put when
Mike comes is just silly. It just cant happen. When you're an MJ fan and you
see Mike, your feet just go! Michael's bus came down Madison Avenue and
people that had no idea what was going on were chasing his tour bus Thats
how we knew it was him coming. Michael's bus got rushed by the fans. We
ignored the police of course! The bus came around the block again and this
is when I finally got a great view of Mike. We held up our banner for him.
He pointed at it and waved at us. OMG OMG OMG OMG.
But that wasn't enough for us!
So we chased the bus, yes chased for blocks! We were trying to give our
banner to MJ. We saw his bus turn left so we went left on another one way
street and tried to catch up with him again. On our way running down the
street, I did have to cuss out this guy in Spanish for insulting us. I
don't know why some hispanic people think they are the only ones who speak
spanish! LOL Anyway, we caught up with Michael again. He was now in the
bottom part of the bus shaking hands with fans who were running beside it.
We saw him again briefly when we were running beside the bus. OMG all I
could see for blocks was people running after that bus. Traffic was stopped.
It was total chaos that only Michael fans can cause!
Saturday night was the party. Much respect to Meca27 who performed. She was
great and I'm not just saying that. She really was good! Unfortunately
Michael didn't show up until like 8:45 or 9pm, but when he did get there no
one was watching the show. All heads were turned in his direction! He waved
and blew kisses and watched the remainder of the show. Michael had a good
time. He arrived with Karen Faye and the nanny(I'm pretty sure that was
her). He sang along with the performers and bopped his head. HE LOOKED
GREAT When he FINALLY got on stage, it was totally crazy. I doubt if anyone
got any good pics besides the people right up front near the stage. He
looked so happy and pleased with us and honored. Mike only was on stage for
a matter of minutes, but I guess I should be grateful for that. I'm such an
ungrateful fan at times LOL
After that we had a plan! CHASE HIM! We went around the corner, figuring by
the time MJs car got to where we were standing the fans chasing him would be
tired Boy were we wrong! Fans had gotten cabs and were sitting there
waiting for MJ's limo to come around so they could follow him LMAO why
didn't I think of that! I ran right up to Michael's limo and just as I was
about to knock on the window, this HUGE bald man with a mustache says(in a
really mean Alien like voice) GET AWAY FROM THE CAR. DAYUM!
The car sped off( as fast as it could with people running in front and all
around it heehee) And he was gone! Like a fart in the wind *sigh* Oh well at least I got close.
Sunday, July 7th was our day of departure! This time, the Neville Brothers
were on our plane. We must attrach celebs! We bought the NY Pnd Daily News.
The pic on the NY post was just disgusting. It was a pic of him on the bus
at the demo. Michael's teeth looked black and the lipstick looked bright red
and it just really wasn't that way! He really looked great and healthy! Why
do the news media make Mike look bad on purpose? This man is wonderful. Who
else can bring together everyone? There were blacks, whites, hispanics,
Asians, people from everywhere! Older people, kids, and every age in
between. If we don't support him, who will!
MICHAEL! MICHAEL! MICHAEL! MICHAEL! Ok I'm calm.
