In fact, go ahead and start playing this song as you read through the rest of this post...
This is what I heard blasting from a car in a parking lot this weekend. It was not unlike when MJ died and people were singing all his songs loudly in their cars wherever they drove. I loved it!
I know that a lot of different people liked MJ for different reasons and during different eras.
I also know that looks can be deceiving.
I truly know that you can't judge a book by its cover and can't tell what a person is like based on your first impressions.
Even still, I was in shock when I walked through a parking lot this weekend and heard a car blaring Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" super loud through the car speakers.
I was shocked because I was in Mid-Missouri and the eating locale just didn't seem like the place where MJs fans would be hanging out.
I was shocked because the super-loud music was coming from a black Lincoln Towncar with blacked out windows. Yes, the type of car that is seen as luxury and is used as a limo for the rich in major cities, like NYC.
I was even more shocked when the car parked just to my left and out came a 70+ year old white man dressed in a salmon colored polo shirt and some khaki pants.
Get it, old man!!
