That Jackie's "taking a break" at this pivotal point in her life from her audience, whether current or potential, I think is healthy, especially if it's for the sake of her sanity and a healthy and successful future both personally and careerwise. I don't know her personally. I'm pretty sure none on this proboard or the others that have examined her life and career microscopically since she was born do either. But as a 77 yo grandfather, I tend to see young people through that prism and with some wisdom that comes with having spent 77 years trying to learn from and correct a lot of mistakes and taking wrong turns, which I'll remain in the process of until I take my last breath. I recommend as a fellow fan and audience member and grandfather, consequently ..... let's give her "a break". I think we all know her well enough, that she deserves one and maybe most especially ... from us for awhile. Her future in most ways, may depend on it.
jcas: I totally agree with everything you just said..... except......my only critique is "especially if it's for the sake of her sanity and a healthy and successful future both personally and careerwise"!
Without fans, she will NOT have a successful career, period!!
And to go this long without communicating to her fans that all is OK, is not OK!
If she is still healthy, then her utter disdain for her current fan base is totally unacceptable and makes me believe that she is using this absence to hone and polish a performance that will attract a younger fan base!
I hope I'm wrong, but when the butterfly emerges from this cocoon, we may not like what we see!
