Michael Jackson R.I.P.

26 06 2009

When I first learned of this tragic event I couldn’t believe it, I stood in shock, trying to fully understand the situation.

“He can’t be dead!”, I said to myself, “This can’t be true.”

Sadly, the news was right. I was terrified. Michael Jackson had a massive influence on me since I was a little kid, mesmerized by his dancing moves on stage, trying to imitate his Moonwalk with my friends at school. We bought almost every single album he produced, every video and concert DVDs we could find. Learned many of his songs by heart, and danced to them in celebration…

There’s so much to say about this man. Reasons why I loved him are described in an earlier post. However, I have to say, he didn’t deserve to die like this. He didn’t deserve to suffer throughout his life. He’s had a terrible childhood, producing music since the age of 11. His actions reflected those of the inner child living inside of him.

Michael Jackson was a legend on all frontiers, a wonderful artist, and an inspiring human being. His unexpected death saddens me, along with millions of fans all around the world. My sympathies to his family, friends and fellow fans.

Rest in peace Michael Jackson, your music shall live with us for generations to come. Thank you for everything you did, you’ll never be forgotten.

What About Michael Jackson?!?

Michael Jackson has had a great influence in my life ever since I started listening to his songs back in the ’90s. I am truly amazed and shocked by this man. I know how most of people judge him by his looks and his trial history, but I know there’s much more humanity in this man that probably exceeds our own levels.

And when they say he’s a legend, I just know HE IS. I’d say he’s a legend because of his professionalism and dedication, his lyrics, shows, choreography, and music is just unmatched. And I’m yet to see such a great talent in any other artist on the scene today.

Also, it’s great to know about his rather unknown songs. Songs like “Smile”, “Little Suzy”, “Childhood”, and many others. Those songs are truly inspirational to every human being. Especially when you notice the special treatment Michael has given them. He’s so convincing you know the words are coming out of love from his heart, not out of the greed for money.

I’m not saying he’s the perfect man. He has done some mistakes, but then again, who doesn’t?! The very special and delicate details of his life displayed by the media are nothing – to me- more than a cheap distortion to the image of a great man, a great person, and last of all a wonderful human. Those details are his own damn business, and I don’t have to say anything about them. What matters to me, are the actions. He has a history full of donations and aid to charity organizations, and he spent lots of money into his “Heal the World” project. Actually, it’s more than satisfying to know that he has dedicated some of his greatest songs to the earth and to the people all around the world. Something that has nearly disappeared from today’s albums.

So, what about Michael Jackson?? I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON!!
