Thank You + My Thoughts On Michael Jackson & Hollywood

I say this VERY bitter-sweetly.  Last week, drfunkenberry.com had it's biggest week by far. With the Perez Hilton/Wil I am story, Farrah Fawcett's expected death and the very unexpected death of Michael Jackson and our credibility shooting thru the roof. Bittersweet I say.

It was much easier earlier in the week to attack Perez and the numbers were high as we were covering the story and being on top of our game, our numbers were looking good.  Petty as crap now in all honesty.

Then Michael Jackson.  Sigh.  The first two sites to report Michael's passing were TMZ and us. Perez had to change his dissing of MJ with a story of his passing so the timing of his was off.  Listen.  It's nothing to be proud of.  We were NOT trying to be the first. We just assumed the CNN's of the world would follow suit.  We didn't know it would take 2 hours for them to confirm his passing. 

After that, our daily pageviews have almost doubled and we know that it is because you trust me/us for the news we bring you.  It means a lot to me and I thank you but again, it is bittersweet.  To have him still here, take away those daily views. It. Just. Doesn't. Matter.

So I have a message for Hollywood and you Celebrity doctors. I want you to hear it loud and clear.  You took away Anna Nicole Smith too soon. You took away Heath Ledger way too soon.  You took Michael Jackson away too soon. Prescribed medicine when not needed is just as lethal as crack, heroin, or meth. 

You so-called doctors, what the heck happened to ethics?  They don't need the crap, don't give it to them.

You celebrities, sometimes when people tell you no, they are not doing it to be dicks. Realize that the ones who give you that crap when you don't need it, don't give a damn about you. They want to be your buddy, but not really.  They just want that life.  They want to write that tell-all book about you because they know sooner or later, your ass is gonna be dead and they will be getting your riches. They are not your friends.

Also, Randy Phillips, did Michael Jackson REALLY pass that physical a few months ago?  I'm not in bed with AEG like Perez so I can say it.  Mr. Phillips, if he really did not pass that physical, all of this is on you as well as that doctor right now. You know that right?  50 shows when he hasn't done a full one in 10 years? Come on now.

I just had to get a few things off my chest everyone and thank you for sticking with us and spreading the word about us.  You having faith in our credibility means a lot to me/us.  Hollywood, it's time to check yourself.-Dr.FB

  1. Motive Means and Opportunity…Who had em? When you rule out all that is not possible, what is left is the truth, however improbable.

  2. That was excellent. It’s nothing short of disgusting to see how evil people are. Like that O’Jays song goes,

    They smile in your face
    All the time they wanna take your place
    The Backstabbers

    I pray that all of the stars in Hollywood take stock of who is around them, who is real and who isn’t and then act accordingly. I don’t wanna see another star end up the way Michael Jackson ended. He didn’t deserve that and the same goes for all the stars out there.

    Thank you Dr FB for giving a damn when it looks like no one out there is doing the same.

  3. I just want the Jackson Family to bring Randy Phillips/AEG all the way down…in the end I hope he gets totally bankrupted. I hope all musicians/artists boycott.

  4. Amen!

    When money gets thrown around, ethics go out the window.

    I’m sure there are celebrities out there with 3 or 4 doctors on the payroll treating various ailments with various prescriptions. And there are assistants or “enablers” in their lives who will go out and fill those prescriptions under their own names so that there are no questions or resistance from pharmacy techs filling the Rx regarding dangerous drug interactions.

    To the celebrities — Celebrity status doesn’t buy you a doctorate in Pharmacology. There ARE people out there that know what’s best for you.

    To the wanna-bes — The lure of money or the chance to be a part of an “entourage” shouldn’t erase your ethics or take away your ability to think for yourself and say NO to someone.

  5. Randy Phillips… 1st he messed up Prince’s sound now he takes a life.

  6. RIP MJ. You are forever missed: http://tinyurl.com/fanreactionpics

  7. …One more thing. How many people will read this and agree with you and comment on here that were haters? A LOT OF YOU. It really makes me sick. I really meant what I said when you people took a part in killing him. You guys have no IDEA the pain you caused that man. He just wanted to try to do good in this world and show love, but all he ever got in return was hate. A celebrity issued a statement saying that Michael told him he didn’t understand why people thought he was weird. Michael thought all of you were weird for not caring about the world, our children, the animals, and the environment. And, he was right.

  8. RIP Michael xx , i am so sad about him passing and not being able to see him at the O2 , 50 dates ? even Prince couldn’t manage that .
    what were they thinking ?
    all these rumours now about his 8 stone body is so upsetting , i really don’t wanna hear such shit , poor michael and his family and dear children , what must they be feeling ?? :(

  9. Thank YOU!!! for calling out AEG… I think people need to look more closely at their role in this.

  10. I can appreciate this. The thing that really makes me angry is that, to me, a legend wasn’t taken away too soon. I could CARE LESS about him being famous. To a lot of people, Michael meant hope, inspiration, dignity, and grace. Above ALL ELSE, he was an exceptional human being. He was one of the greatest humanitarians this world has ever seen. He’s actually in the Guiness Book of World Records for doing the most charitable works. And, the fact that MOST OF HIS WORK was not known speaks VOLUMES. Michael Jackson was a Christian. He said he didn’t wave red flags about what he did, because Jesus said not to. It has to be from your heart, and healing this world was all of Michael’s heart. It really is a shame that everyone is coming out of the woodwork NOW and acting as if they respected him. It’s too late, people. All of you that said hateful things and believed the media (media who is pretty much ALL tabloid status these days for interjecting their personal, nasty opinions) should be utterly ashamed of yourselves. You sincerely HURT one of God’s children. A child of God who make God PROUD. I’ve had several conversations with him and have seen the hurt in his eyes and in his voice over how people wrongly perceive him. You guys helped kill him, too. YOU DID. LEARN FROM THIS and show people some EMPATHY and RESPECT as people.

  11. Here here !! u are so right , fame causes ppl to be addicts and die young , elvis , marilyn munroe and now MJ …..fame who wants it ? its not worth it, loosing your real friends , loosing your privacy , loosing your mind and then loosing your life !
