Elizabeth Taylor; I Doth My Hat To Thee

Whilst these words were said on the publicly accessible Twitter service, I still think Elizabeth Taylor hits the nail on the head on how I feel about most public grieving "whoopla"s as she calls them.

Jackson's long-time friend Elizabeth Taylor has also declined the opportunity to speak at the memorial.

"I cannot be part of the public whoopla [sic]," she wrote on Twitter.

"And I cannot guarantee that I would be coherent to say a word."

"I just don't believe that Michael would want me to share my grief with millions of others. How I feel is between us. Not a public event."

What is it about people that makes them get so upset about someone dying who they didn't really know? It's pretty much what I moan about in my "I Hate Princess Diana" post.
