You can't put on a radio station here without being blasted by "I will always love you". Like with Jackson, dying seems to be a real miracle fix. All of a sudden, you're no longer a freak/junkie/weirdo/drunk, but once again you're a pop icon. I think a lot of people prefer their idols dead, that way they can't do anything wrong anymore.
People seem to have a need to first worship somebody, then despise them, then love them again. Look what happened to Britney Spears and George Michael.
"Everything has an end.
Except sausages, which have two..."
