Today showed the death of the King of Pop. The international outpouring of grief and the shear volume of press generated shows that he was still one of most famous men in the whole world.
A troubled man who is living proof that pushy parents and life in the public eye is a most unhealthy thing sometimes. Yet was undoubtedly one the greatest performers ever. I'm conflicted as some of the stories surrounding him are most uncomfortable, yet he wrote Thriller. The hands down greatest music video ever made. He sold a quarter of a billion albums in his albums, and permiated the public conscience in a way few performers ever do. His impact on popular culture cannot be underestimated as can be demonstrated by the below video.
RIP Michael Jackson.
