Enough with the Michael Jackson Stuff
Enough already with the Michael Jackson hysteria. Great singer, great dancer, no significant albums in 18 years, a debacle of a private life whatever you want to think about his issues (or not) with children. He is roughly a contempory of mine so I have seen the whole thing - cute Michael and the Jackson 5, confident Michael breaking out of the R&B genre with Off the Wall and Thriller and finally broke, sick, freaky Michael. Guy had issues probably rightly so if you are a superstar under the age of 10 but this is eerily reminiscent of Elvis which I never understood either. Sorry the guy passed but an icon of humanity he was not. Move on people!
