Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009), dubbed the “King of Pop“, was an American musician and one of the most commercially successful entertainers of all time. His unique contributions to music and dance, along with a highly publicized personal life, made him a prominent figure in popular culture for four decades.
He started a solo career in 1971, having made his debut in 1964 as a member of The Jackson 5. His 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time, with four others — Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995) — among the best selling. He popularized several physically complicated dance moves, such as the robot and the moonwalk. He is widely credited with having transformed the music video from a promotional tool into an art form, with videos such as Billie Jean, Beat It and Thriller making him the first African American artist to amass a strong crossover following on MTV.
A double-inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, his other achievements feature multiple Guinness World Records — including the “Most Successful Entertainer of All Time” — 13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles, and estimated sales of over 750 million records. He was also a notable philanthropist and humanitarian who donated millions of dollars to 39 charities, and also raised money through his own Heal the World Foundation.
Im not going to talk about the bad things people say about him because i just dont believe a thing!
He was never a freak!!!! And anyone who thinks so is not welcome in here!!No one cared about his childhood and the pain he was going through and the lies they told about him and how that made him feel!People were cruel with him!
He was an angel that God kindly send to us and alot of people didn’t know how to be greatfull for it and made his life a living hell while he was trying to make everything better and make us happy!
I will always love him and i cry so much when i listen to his songs….he will be in my heart forever!
i am here for his family and the ones who need to talk about it! he wanted to change the world and make people more kind and he said that we could if we all cried at the same time…and we did! The day he died the world cried! Nothing will ever be the same and no one can ever get even close to all that he was!
He was special and had a smile that brought light into our lifes even though his heart was broken or he was sad and his eyes were the eyes of someone caring and loving!
I miss you Michael!
