I honestly, 100% can say I do not really care about Hollywood (Hollyweird, in my opinion)or any one in it. But I do feel bad about Micheal Jackson. Not my favorite artist, not even close. However, even though his personal life had gone to hell... this man managed to become the world's BIGGEST pop icon, and that is a feat if you ask me. I remember growing up in the 80's, everyone LOVED Micheal Jackson. On the radio, in tape decks, later on CD's. Sure, his latest CD's may not have been good music per se' , but I feel that was not the same Micheal Jackson the early years had brought us. Clearly he was tormented by inner demons and the media monster. Sure he was weird. But find me a bigger pop star in the 80's to middle 90's, and I'll write about them. LOL... When I was in Iraq, Iraqi soldiers or Iraqi Policemen trying to make a connection to Americans would always bring up Micheal Jackson. He was common ground. Sure, I am not going to go blaring his music in my truck, that's just not my style. I do respect him though for his music ability, and his ability to influence the world with nothing but music and words.
So... Good Job, MJ. Here is a tribute to ya
