Child at heart

That he was a special child, his parents knew from the start... and it was not just the usual feeling that all parents had for their children.. he was genuinely different because of his sheer talent for song and dance... and all who saw him perform knew he would have a great future..
but he was raised like a normal child, not that his parents had much of a choice, because they barely made ends meet.. he had a horde of brothers, sisters and cousins, and they had many a gala family gathering..but in spite of all this his parents felt there was something really different about him..
they didnt know whether it was his obsession to look different from his ilk... or his penchant forloneliness... not that he was a compulsive loner, for all though he had never had any girlfriends, he had a battalion of boyfriends who he shared a close bond with... he regularly brought them home, watched videos all night, played songs and generally did a whole lot of things his parents thought were just normal 'boy stuff'...
soon, he lived up to his relatives' predictions and his song and dance made him an internationally acclaimed pop star... but that didnt stop his parents from worrying.. he became obsessed with his looks and his numerous antics regarding his looks made him the laughing stock among his peersand the general public.. and somewhere in between he had a broken marriage as well..but that was their least of their worries..
he was still bringing boys home, and the things he did with them were not exactly 'boy stuff', even by his parents standards..he apparently didnt want to grow up, but that wasnt the only thing he had in common with Peter Pan... he had a ranch he called Neverland.. he brought kids there, played games with them, and when the stories got out, he landed in court...
and gave a whole new meaning to the phrase'boys will be boys'....
until next time, games that you play in childhood....

pearl: yup , i remember.. :).. though u comment more these days :))

elixir: i guess his music is still okay, not as great as before, but okay nevertheless....

blokes said...

nah manu- his music is fantastic- when u reach the ultimate, there is only one way left - to fall! this is more like the fall of an angel and it just shows to prove that if one loses touch with the divine, one loses it all.

Loved the post...hate its source. The man has money and that's all is keeping him in the news rather than in jail.
