Tribute to "the king" (of pop)!!!

I am a little late on this (by a few days). It was a real real sad day last thursday to hear the news about MJ. He might have been the laughing stock r people during the better part of this past decade or so. But how could you undermine the legend that is MJ??

I probably do not listen to music like his now. But I sure did growing up .....who didn't right? I am sure every kid growing up in the 80s and early 90s must have tried impersonating MJs moves ..... his moon walk (wow... the moonwalk !!!), the kick move and the infamous crotch grab. Not to mention the number of walls with his poster on in the 80s, and kids with the red jacket of his. His popularity and stature was just mind boggling ....and dare i say (again) ...legendary. I still remember how I used to hate U2 for a few years when they won a bunch of Grammys for "Joshua Tree" instead of MJ's "Bad"...although objectively U2 probably had the better album that year.

I hate to talk (or even think) about his personal life. It is an understatement that he had issues. But it should not take any shine out of his achievements as an entertainer. I hope, at least after his death, people stop trying digging out dirt (yeah I'm talking about you ..... you sensitivity and morally challenged TMZ, E!, Hollywood access etc)..... he has been tarnished enough. This man deserves to be remembered in the right ways at least after his demise.

MJ was arguably the most popular global figure in entertainment this past century ....not only for his music but also his revolution in dance and music videos. MTV would not be here today if not for his transformations of music videos to an art, rather than as promos before his time. If you look at entertainment as a bunch of eras, the 80s and 90s were easily MJ's, just as Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra had their own earlier last century. Yes, to me he is up there with them as a legendary icon for music and I hope that is how history will see him.
