The tabloids could have a cover story that says, “You’re Looking At This And Reading These Words”, and lots of people would still be like, “Yeah whatever. I’m so sure.” Wednesday the Enquirer said Michael Jackson had taken 10,000 pills over the last 6 months of his life. Today, CNN confirms that, if nothing else, he sure as hell tried. Us magazine says…
Michael Jackson took more than 10 Xanax pills a night, “asking his employees to get the prescription sleep medicine under their names and also personally traveling to doctor’s offices in other states to obtain them,” according to CNN.
One security guard told sheriff’s deputies that he expressed his concern to another staffer about Jackson’s use of 10-plus pills a night.
According to CNN, the second staffer replied: “Jackson was doing better because he was down from 30 to 40 Xanax pills a night.”
Holy crap. All of a sudden 50 doesn’t seem like such a young age to die. If you’re so addicted to drugs that you take 40 Xanax a night, 50 seems like a nice long life. It was like he was challenging his liver to a fight. Like he stood there with a full bottle of pills and a glass of water, looked down at his liver and said, “let’s get it on, bitch!”
