Only Elvis and I mean only Elvis could match this man’s iconic status in the world of entertainment. And only Elvis’s death can match the range of emotions that go throughout the world that has followed the untimely death of the ‘King of Pop’. The news flash messages screamed ‘Michael Jackson : Dead at 50″!
funny money dvd As a child of 7 or 8 I was mesmerized by Thriller, the album that is second to none in sales. The video haunted the young imaginations of kids, teens & adults alike. Beat It & Billy Jean were mainstays of any radio channel and music video channels across the globe. I was a huge fan of MJ from the age of 8-13 when I moved my loyalties permanently over to rock. I even had a watch that would play Beat It alarms in synthesized format.
Still we all enjoyed his videos. He went over the top in theatrics and blew his fans off their seats with his dance moves. Then he went crazy and did a few questionable things. His face got bleached white, multiple surgeries on his nose, oxygen tent, his hair catching on fire, questionable marriages, child molestation charges, keeping a private zoo in his land, dangling his baby son over a window……the guy was not right in the head.
And yet, in a few years people will only remember his songs, videos and the moonwalk. Goodbye Michael.
Michael Joseph Jackson
