guys, nobody wrote anything about Michael Jackson.  Cry

In one way he was my idol. The songs, dance moves ..... he is a LEGEND, and will always be.  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

He was definately a part of my growing up.  While his music wasn't my favorite, you couldn't help but hear it everywhere.  I liked him then, I am impressed with him now.

consumate performer - fantastic for his time - but for me he did achieve the highest by evolving to new forms, to sustain.  to me thats the sign of a great artist - look at picasso, started with descriptive pictures and evolved to cubism, leading all the way...

I liked the guy too, especially in the 80's before he became a bit screwed up.  I guess being a genius can slip you into madness if one does not take care.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Clearly, Madame Giry, genius has turned to madness!

I'm just glad nobody's spelling it "Micheal". That makes me want to shred faces with a shoebrush.

Hey, that's an idea.  When I walk the dogs at night I can hang my shoe brush on my hip as a self-defence weapon.

with two dogs already I don't think a shoe brush is going to make a lot of difference...unless  you use it to scratch behind their ears Smiley

Like him or not...there was Elvis, then there was Michael...both will live forever for their contributions to the music and entertainment industry.

Michael was a friend of mine (not close, but nonetheless). Despite his celebrity, the good and the bad, I knew him as a quiet, introverted, baby-voiced guy with an illusive childhood/teenhood, who just wanted to view the world through rose colored glasses, and hope beyond reality that one day it would turn into the world that he saw. I will miss him.

The most beautiful part of the dance is often found in between the steps... and in the movement within the stillness.

Yes I am sure the person he was  not the person the Media made of him. Fame comes at a very high cost....He was young and had years ahead of him...Sad news
