In the previous blog entry I started to go into the fact that there could be a reason why Michael Jackson chose the day that Farrah Fawcett died to stage his death. I went into the fact that it's possible he chose that day in order to take the attention away from her, not because Michael Jackson wanted the spotlight but because he wanted to give Farrah the opportunity to die in peace. Now why would this matter so much to Michael? Well we know that Michael was a very caring person, regardless of what a few choice people might have said otherwise. There was a possibility that something might have made him feel great empathy for Farrah, and made him plan his death on the same day as hers.
Let me try to explain a little more about what I am referring to. I was watching a video awhile back where I had to stop dead in my tracks. The reason being was that it showed Michael Jackson coming out of a toy store with his children back on May 15, 2009, just about a month before his so-called passing. Someone in the crowd of press people yelled and I quote, "Are you going to watch Farrah Fawcett? Are you going to watch Farrah Fawcett tonight?" At first I wasn't sure what he was talking about, but it just seemed strange to hear Farrah's name come up around Michael Jackson and it had nothing to do with both of them dying on the same day. When you view this video listen carefully to what is being said. You might have to put up your volume in order to hear it. It occurs around the time of: 11:36 on the video.

What I have since discovered through some research, that the member of the media had to be referring to Farrah Fawcett's documentary that she did chronicling her battle with cancer called, "Farrah's story", which was shown around this time.

So what if Michael did watch it? What if not only did he feel such empathy for this woman, but also understood all too well what she was saying about how precious life was and how we shouldn't waste a single minute of it? This might also explain that if he did stage his death why he chose the day she died. Think about this carefully for a moment, what did the news media keep going back to when it came to Farrah's impending death? Not her career in acting, not her valiant fight with Cancer; no they kept going back to the fact that her son Redman was in jail while she was dying. Couldn't you just see it now the day she died, it was all about how was Redman taking this? How does he feel knowing that he let her down because he was in jail and was not with her when she died?
Michael knowing full well what the news media could be like and how they always wanted to sensationalize everything could of decided that if he was going to stage his death, he would do it on the same day Farrah died. Then she could die in peace without dealing with all that media attention, while he took on the scrutiny of the media. Anyway, if Michael did see the documentary I could see him relating so much to all of this, and maybe wondering if it was all really worth it. Yes, Michael loved his fans, they were probably the only thing that made it all worthwhile, but there was a whole lot of other stuff that made being Michael Jackson unbearable.
Plus, one last thing there was speculation that Michael was going to stage his death earlier in the month because of the strange things that had happened regarding early June. Such as the fact that the Jackson family kept saying three weeks in interviews when they are referring to the last time they saw him. The fact that the date of death was changed during the Conrad Murray Involuntary Manslaughter court case from June 9th to June 25, 2009, and the fact that the Judge felt the need to bring public attention to this. Also, for those who don't know at the time of the documentary, doctors weren't giving Farrah much longer to live. They were giving her a matter of weeks which would put her death somewhere at the beginning of June; but of course, she lasted a little while longer.

So it's possible that when Michael chose to stage his death for whatever reason, he decided to do it on the day she died, to give her what he and so many others knew she would want, a chance to die in peace without the media going on a frenzy against her one and only son.
One last connection that I found. I found a photo of Farrah Fawcett, Ryan O'Neal, and Liza Minnelli. If you've been following Michael Jackson over the years you have to know that Michael and Liza Minelli were good friends, so it only makes sense that Michael somewhere along the line would have known Farrah on a personal level. So the question lingers did Michael fake his death on the day that Farrah died to help her?
