Michael Jackson the Pop God
He might have died a sudden death, but Jackson leaves us with a music legacy for the ages.
As Michael Jackson made the unfortunate transition from pop-music icon to tabloid staple, one of the most common lines of attack was on his ever-changing appearance, the way his skin dramatically lightened in tone, and his face altered in structure to other accusations of a child molester etc . What's most tragic about Jackson's death, aside from the fact that it comes as he was mounting a comeback to include a sold-out 50-show residence at London's O2 Arena, is that what people will remember about him is his changing face. What they should remember: the way he changed the face of pop music.
I am deeply saddened and shocked by the death of a brother, a son, a daddy.......I am seriously still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that he is gone...he always seemed so much larger than life. I literally grew up watching him on tv and in videos and movies and most of all enjoying his music. The onslaught of so many emotions when I heard the news of his passing is beyond words....
I am still in utter shock hours later. There was an Elvis before we were born and then there was MJ - the most memorable voice in music history.
Let this serve as a reminder people....life is a gift every second you can try to enjoy it as tomorrow is not promised to anyone.
RIP......nobody knows the truth about this man...he may have been wrongfully accused. Nobody lives a perfect life. To his family, I am sorry for your loss. He had great talent!
If there is music in Heaven they will be having the largest biggest bestest concert today to celebrate whacko jacko’s return home
