Death, Celebrity, and Gods

Two conversations I had regarding the death of my father and @jmacwhoyawit's father, Bernie Mac, its affect on the daughters, fan/entertainer relationships vs entertainer/family, deification of celebrities, humanness, death, God, gods, worship, and the need for humans to worship something.

@The_Suga_Hill >@jmacwhoyawit and I had similar discussion the other day about celebs and deification of people. It's semi-weird.

@The_Suga_Hill Yes! As I child I wondered what would happen if he did die, almost because I wondered if he COULD. But, now we know. #human

@The_Suga_Hill I had a hard time reconciling that with MJ. I still feel like he may've had super body waste disposal system, but yeah.

@The_Suga_Hill That's how I humanize people. I have to bring them down from this god-role and realize, they boo boo just like I do! lol

@The_Suga_Hill Yeah, I think Oprah doesn't think of herself the way other people think of her. They deify her. She cool but she boo boo too!

Shanae @The_Suga_Hill

@jasminepowers LoL, I know right, Oprah is a person I've always wanted to meet and really see for myself if she is all that she seems to be

It's like I said, nothing is impossible unless I'm dead or the person I want to do it with is dead. Oprah, girl, can't wait to meet you!

So, although she's not doing her show, I was wondering, just what if I meet Oprah in real life.

Jasmine Powers @jasminepowers

You know how I have vivid dreams, right? I had one earlier this year about meeting Oprah and we had a good talk.

@jasminepowers Can't argue. It's like we'd rather be dumb than improve and do better.

@jmacwhoyawit Sysapses doesn't connect on MANY things. God gave us a brain, we go to university, debate social justice, but are dumb.

Je'Niece McCullough @BerniesDaughter

@jasminepowers Amen and amen again! And I think that's where the synapses don't connect for folks

Jasmine Powers @jasminepowers

@jmacwhoyawit We are. You had me at Unbound party when DJ Rell was spinning and we were CUT-TIN'-UP. I had asthma attack I danced so hard!

Jasmine Powers @jasminepowers

@jmacwhoyawit Girl, no. I'm stupid. Let me and @poeticgirlchild (my sis) get together. We come up with some STUFF!!

Jasmine Powers @jasminepowers

@jmacwhoyawit Like you said, I/we can't knock it, we are moved by whoever moves us but they are not OUR family/blood.

Je'Niece McCullough @BerniesDaughter

@jasminepowers LOL! I thought I was the only one who thought like that!

06/08/2011 06:47:01 WIB
Jasmine Powers @jasminepowers

@jmacwhoyawit Yeah, I remember being little in 80s having to be told MJ was real/human. I couldn't grasp concept of him boo boo'in lol,

If you're just now reading this, Chirpstory is giving me grief. Things may not make sense but try to follow @jmacwhoyawits dialogue because I'm having trouble grabbing my input.

Okay, it's starting to make sense. Thank God for Twitter's ability to track a convo and tweet URL's. I'm just learning this how to use this API.

Now this makes sense. I've been fooling with this thing for over an hour because I wanted it to be accurate.
