Lixo de Tablóide

Tabloid Junkie vem de um período da vida de Michael Jackson, onde a sua reputação é vista como polêmica na opinião pública.

Esta faixa é um ataque direto sobre a integridade da mídia e da facilidade de que as pessoas acreditam no título.


Obviamente Jackson teve seu quinhão de "má imprensa" e decidiu voltar a lutar dentro de sua música.
Este é um tema recorrente em seus últimos álbuns e claramente evidente aqui na "história".
Forte palavras vivas e mais sutil se combinam para criar a sua percepção sobre os meios de comunicação modernos ...



Tabloid Junkie

Speculate to break the one you hate
Circulate the lie you confiscate
Assassinate and mutilate
As the hounding media in hysteria
Who's the next for you to resurrect
JFK exposed the CIA
Truth be told the grassy knoll
As the blackmail story in all your glory

It's slander
You say it's not a sword
But with your pen you torture men
You'd crucify the Lord
And you don't have to read it (read it)
And you don't have to eat it (eat it)
To buy it is to feed it (feed it)
Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Though everybody wants to read all about it
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
They say he's homosexual

In the hood
Frame him if you could
Shoot to kill
To blame him if you will
If he dies sympathize
Such false witnesses
Damn self righteousness
In the black
Stab me in the back
In the face
To lie and shame the race
Heroine and Marilyn
As the headline stories of
All your glory

It's slander
With the words you use
You're a parasite in black and white
Do anything for news
And you don't go and buy it (buy it)
And they won't glorify it ('fy it)
To read it sanctifies it ('fies it)
Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
(Everybody wants to read all about it)
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
(See, but everybody wants to believe all about it)

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
(See, but everybody wants to believe all about it)
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
She's blonde and she's bisexual

Scandal
With the words you use
You're a parasite in black and white
Do anything for news
And you don't go and buy it (buy it)
And they won't glorify it ('fy it)
To read it sanctifies it ('fies it)
Why do we keep foolin' ourselves
Slander
You say it's not a sin
But with your pen you torture men
Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
(Though everybody wants to read all about it)
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
(See, but everybody wants to read all about it)

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
You're so damn disrespectable
