Joan Rivers could make you laugh to tears as a comedian and rip your personal fashion style to shreds on the red carpet with her barefaced opinion. Joan Rivers had an amazing career doing exactly what she wanted to do for over 50 years. Her loud raspy tone delighted us in so many ways from her stand up comedy, to talk show host on The Late Show with Joan Rivers and The Joan Rivers Show, her own jewelry and clothing collection for QVC and other shopping channels, her throne on The Fashion Police and her reality show with her daughter Joan & Mellissa: Joan Knows Best. Of the many catch lines or phrases from her trash-talking mouth my favorites are..."Can we talk?" and "Oh grow up!" Working hard and dressing to impress with the amazing kind of energy that Joan Rivers had at 81 years of age well, that's a full life lived.
Joan Rivers was true to her sense of humor through to her death, she made this request to her daughter... “I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!” she wrote. “I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing ‘Mr. Lonely.’ I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé's.”
Gotta love her. RIP Joan Rivers. Wishing peace and love to her family, friends and fans.
Robin Williams brought so much joy to us all. No one can ever dispute his raw talent and his unique sense of humor. I can remember my first encounter with him as Mork of the Mork and Mindy sitcom back in the day "NaNu NaNu" (for those of you that can relate). I never missed an episode. Robin Williams became one of the top actors amongst his peers, whether it was his hilarious antics , his amazing ability to alter the sound of his voice or the tear provoking performances; he earned a place in our hearts and his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. I love every thing about him as a comedian, an actor and a humanitarian.
May the all that suffer find peace of mind and spirit and live life
In God's awesome universe he places in it human-beings, animals, and vegetation to help nourish us so we can grow to become individuals that he will be well pleased with and to fill the void that was once empty. In his magnificent design he left a special place void so that he could fill it with you. No-one had the idea that he would place a woman of such magnitude, wisdom, intelligence and love that would fill the void of so many people. I read these words once "That To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Required" God gave you much and exemplified the chareteristics of sharing, love and commitment to all who beckoned for your assistance and guidance and never once did you require anything from us but a tentative ear to listen to the words that you imparted to us. at first I was sadden when I heard of your passing, but I realized that I have your memories that will bring a smile to my face when all appears hopeless. In closing I just want you to know in spirit, that you will be missed but my void has been filled.
The genus of Michael Jackson the King of Pop is still alive 5 years after his death. Just dropping is "Xscape" the new album from the archives of Michael Jackson's many musical creations. Producer LA Reid who pulled the single "Love Never So Good" knew that this was the beginning of the Icon's rise to resurrection. Although the song was great as a producer Timbaland felt that it needed the collaboration from Justin Timberland to be the cherry on top. It is said that Michael's spirit was there every step, every beat of the way. The name of the album was taken from an expression that Michael used "exscape-ism". LA Reid, Timbaland and Justin Timberlake worked connecting to the epic sound, style and perfection that has and always will be Michael Jackson. The hologram performance on Billboard Music Awards was awesome!
I awakened one day and I am living, breathing, there's people around me that say "I'm your mother, Katherine" and "I'm your father Joseph, "I'm your brother and I'm your sister, we're your family you're a Jackson."
What is this strange thing that I hear, I feel, I want? It sounds so good to me everyone in my family knows this thing; I'm just a little boy that they call Michael. I'm listening to the sounds, I'm listening to a voice when I'm alone and I hear it all. It sounds so good to me ; it's so clear to me that I must sing and dance. Oh how I love it, I'm good at this it's a part of me but I'm just a boy.
Wow! Everybody's screaming, "The Jackson Five" while I'm screaming "I want to play, I want to have friends"...yet the stage is fantastic, I love it.
I can do more, I feel it...I can give and change the world to make it a better place. I'm Michael Jackson, now why don't you see me beyond my natural flaws? I'll change my appearance, now why do you mock and ridicule me. I write, sing and dance so that you will know my heart.
From a boy to a man who am ? I am Michael Joseph Jackson a human being that God made to be one of the greatest entertainers of all times. I know you in the USA, Europe, Africa, Asia and the world. I will always love and share my gift from God; I will always reach out to you with lyrics, my loving spirit and soul in song..."I'm bad you know it!"
Just missing Michael
As many of your brothers and sisters mourn over your passing away, I would just personally like to say thank you, thank you and thank you again for leaving us with a legacy that will surpass the test of times. You have left us with a ruler
to be measured by as individuals; it was your courageousness, strength and
unwavering commitment that will forever be embedded in our hearts, minds and souls. We will always remember that smile of yours and the lesson being that even though you knew you were wrongfully imprisoned you still smiled in the face of those who brought in-justice upon you, when we would’ve been contemplating a way to seek revenge if it had been us in your shoes. Because of your trial we all were a part of it and during those long days and nights that you sat in that 5 by 9 cell your spirit allowed us to deal with our own situations. That only confirmed the words “That Brilliant Minds Come Out of a 5 by 9.With that being said all I want to say is Thank You for the guidance and words of wisdom that
you shared with us and to assure you that your spirit will never die. In the words of Maya Angelou “I TOO
SHALL RISE “…………………………….
