I have a feeling that Michael keeps more of an eye on these things than he let on in the interview.I don't know just a feeling
I agree, LOL. I wouldn't be surprised if he had more specific opinions on stuff like this, behind closed doors, "off the record". I mean, he's not the typical "popstar", he DOES address a lot of very real, relevant issues in his music (Like "Earth Song", "We've Had Enough", TDCAU, etc). And he HAS taken part in more outrightly political things in the past, like performing at that one Democratic fundraiser in 2002, I think it was (he does seem quite cozy with the Clintons, lol
). So who knows, maybe he does have more of a preference but didn't care to elaborate on it in the interview--I get the feeling that he does kind of hold back sometimes..like in LWMJ, with Bashir, even in that last interview, when you could tell that Bashir was irritating the hell out of him, he still
held his tongue pretty much..more so than a lot of other people would've, anyhow, LOL. He's just so mild-mannered and polite, sometimes I can't help but wish he would be more blunt..would've loved to have seen him tell Bashir where to go.
But..I also admire that kind of quiet dignity of his, I love him just the way he is! :) And I can also understand if he is indeed, just not a political person..and he's done so much, through his music, to help and inspire othes to help these causes along. But yeah, I would've loved to have either seen him, or the interviewer, go deeper into it, as I really don't think it was an elaborate enough response or line of questioning to really get the full gist of it, you know? But I also appreciate that that's not really what he was there to talk about, LOL. Ah well...can't agree on everything!
I do think his heart was in the right place though, lol, and understand his point! :)
It's just so great to see him, getting to do an interview with much fresher questions like these, rather than all the plastic surgery crap, questions about the allegations, etc, etc....a very welcome change, if you ask me! :D
