Michael Jackson and Jeremiah

I have very little to say about the recent death of Michael Jackson other than to point out how tragic it is that society can see a person completely self destruct and read about it for entertainment.

I'm not talking about his death, rather the past 30 years of tabloid headlines.

One quick thought - is it possible that Michael Jackson was deliberately trying to challenge the truth of Tanach - after all, doesn't Yermeyahu explicitly say:

כג הֲיַהֲפֹךְ כּוּשִׁי עוֹרוֹ, וְנָמֵר חֲבַרְבֻּרֹתָיו; גַּם-אַתֶּם תּוּכְלוּ לְהֵיטִיב, לִמֻּדֵי הָרֵעַ. כד וַאֲפִיצֵם, כְּקַשׁ-עוֹבֵר, לְרוּחַ, מִדְבָּר.
ירמיהו יג, כ"ג
Can a Kushite [African] change his skin? or a leopard his spots?
