Because my generation's Elvis is dead. That he was quite likely a child molester, most certainly abused as a child himself and pretty clearly disturbed is sad, but not particularly relevant here.
It's like an immortal has died, and there's no explanation for that.
It actually seems more likely to me that he has faked his death. That the body that will be buried where ever it will be buried is some sort of human clone. Or that one of his children is a clone, and on June 25 he managed to transfer his soul into a new body.
It stretches the mind to think that Michael Jackson could go out on anything but his own terms, however deluded they might be.
And now I'm just another crazy person. Somewhere there's a younger generation, who thinks I'm just an aging fool.
UPDATE: The theory has nearly gone mainstream, as was inevitable. From The (UK) Telegraph:
"He was talking about the prospect of being cloned. He grabbed Uri by both arms and told him, 'I really want to do it Uri, and I don't care how much it costs'."
