Top definition
An increasingly common condition where, on hearing a Michael Jackson song, a person spontaneously bursts into an MJ dance routine. Symptoms can include a rhythmic jerking of the neck muscles, slow nodding of the head, pouting and thrusting of the pelvis. The movements are often accompanied by squeals, whoops and shouts of Shamone! In extreme cases the patient exhibits zombie-like characteristics such as clawing fingers and twitching before grabbing their own knees, turning and stomping forwards. This often occurs in the company of others with the same affliction, when the condition becomes collectively known as Flash Mob.

To leave them dispirited or dead, quickly moving on to the next target.

A pathological desire to defame and discredit a good person, which manifests itself mainly in journalists and tabloid reporters, leading to slander, misrepresentation, and a compulsion to ignore the truth in favor of scandal or juicy gossip. One of the most notable practitioners is "Hard Copy"'s Diane Dimond who for the majority of her career has allowed her obsession with Michael Jackson to completely warp her professional ethics and make her credibility a joke.
Journalists with Michael Jackson Syndrome can't tell the truth about anyone more famous and successful than they are--they're pathetic.
