Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 1st 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 2, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au 'All I do is talk to Michael' Pricilla Ayoub, a huge fan, mourns the death of Michael Jackson. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP291919 SHIREEN KHALIL PRICILLA Ayoub remembers the time very clearly when the King of Pop came to Australia in 1996 for his History tour. Of course she remembers, she jumped the security fence, ran past the police and banged on the limousine window until the legendary artist wound down the window. ''I hid behind the poles and then ran to the car and was hitting the window saying, 'Oh my God Michael Jackson I love you, I love you' and I was crying so much because this was the only chance I would meet him in the real world and then the police came after me,'' Ms Ayoub said. The 36-year-old Burwood resi- dent has been carrying around a suitcase filled with anything and everything Michael Jackson since she was a little girl. ''What I do is get all his posters from when he was young to now and cut them up and I make folders full of posters and I also frame them.'' Since Jackson's death Ms Ayoub has been collecting even more things from newspapers, maga- zines, albums as well as download- ing all of his music on to her iPod which she carries around wher- ever she goes. ''I bought all his DVDs and music and I've ordered everything ofhisIcanfindandithasleftme broke.'' She has spent hundreds of dol- lars on Jackson memorabilia but this one-of-a-kind Jackson fan does not care because ''you're worth it Michael''. When Ms Ayoub received a phone call at 7am from her aunty telling her that her idol died, she didn't believe it. '' I didn't believe anyone. I wanted his parents to come out and tell me that he had passed away and when I heard it was true I was just devastated. I was crying every day,'' she said. ''I got no time to talk to anyone, all I do is talk to Michael Jackson.'' If you haven't figured it out yet Ms Ayoub is no ordinary fan. She has even been wearing a white glove on her right hand every day for one year. ''I do it because I love him, it's just me and I've always loved him and you can't stop me loving him.'' Priddis one of Jackson's mourners SHIREEN KHALIL DAYS have gone by since the death of one of the biggest pop artists in the world and his multitude of fans continue to mourn him. Former Australian Idol con- testant Roshani Priddis is among many fans around the world in shock over Michael Jackson's death. The first song she ever heard was Thriller, which sold 50 million copies. Priddis recently performed Billie Jean in the Women of Soul concert series. ''It's really sad because he was such a genius and I feel horrible the way the media rode him out as being Wacko Jacko and now that he is dead they are saying 'look at the legacy he left' . . . they turned on him and then turned back,'' she said. Jackson felt that he was mis- understood and in a recent documentary, The Life and Death of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop said ''if anyone wantstoknowaboutme... listen to Childhood''. The song explored the life Jackson always wanted. Priddis said she hoped all the negative stories about Jackson, including the child molestation accusations, did not over- shadow his legacy. ''He definitely made such a contribution to music as we know it today.''
