The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List 235

Do you have exciting plans for the weekend? Tomorrow I’ll be starting the day with a power yoga class, and then I’m off to celebrate one of my best friends’ birthdays. And on Sunday, my brother and I are taking our mama out for a special Mother’s Day breakfast. So it should be a really fun 48 hours! Whatever you have planned, I hope you have a great one…

This piece by Hadley Freeman is one of the best articles I’ve read (so far) about the Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland. And, as someone who grew up worshiping MJ, I’ve read a LOT… “Two things can be true simultaneously: Jackson was one of the most talented performers of all time, and a predator; Jackson mourned his lost childhood, and he was a paedophile,” she writes.
