Demise of World Icon Michael Jackson ***


I got the surreal news early yesterday morning, barely an hour after my friend Rita sent out a tweet with the news that Michael Jackson had suffered a cardiac arrest and was in critical condition. Almost immediately, the whole world was abuzz with the news that the ultimate King of Pop had suffered an untimely death in the midst of preparing for his comeback tour next month. I can't recall the time of the tweets. But that's how it is when something so shocking occurs and you lose all feeling and thoughts in that one particular moment in time; wishing that time stood still so you won't have to go on with tomorrow.

Born on August 29 just like me, Michael Jackson kicked off his musical career as the lead singer of the Jackson 5. A phenomenon like none other, Michael Jackson continued a successful solo career to emerge as an iconic superstar worldwide. I have no doubts when I say that the whole world is in tears at the nation of never seeing our one and only King of Pop ever again. I initially wanted to pay a tribute to MJ in my upcoming Music Monday post. But throughout the day, there was a feeling of emptiness within me and I know I'd feel incomplete and won't rest easy without paying respect to the fallen one today. doa

I'll always remember him for his music and his antics as well as the controversies. Even when MJ was accused of child sexual abuse, I was secretly rooting for him. The media made him out to be a sad miserable man but I'd like to think of him as a talented artist who changed the way everybody looked at music when he won a record of 8 awards in the 1984 Grammy Awards. I don't perceive MJ as mean or wacko or eccentric as the media claims. Like I always tell B ... MJ is just a poor misunderstood soul. putuscinte

I am leaving you with my favourite tune I Want You Back from the Jackson 5. The first and second video features this hit song with the second one a remix version of MJ singing the same song, as a kid. I couldn't resist including a third video, one of N Sync and MJ dancing it off on stage! No matter how freaky his appearance seems to get, MJ remains oh so sexy when he performs! malu ihikhik

We want you back Michael so come on people, let's give it up for our King of Pop! Rest in peace MJ and we'll always love you! lovepeluk

Phatelara,  June 27, 2009 2:44 AM

Clearly, he is an inspiration to many, and despite all the (bad) stories about him, I have always thought that no one else knew him better than he himself. Rest in peace, Michael!

Even though I didn't grow up listening to MJ's music much, I wish he is still alive. Poor MJ! :'( Now they're speculating that MJ's death is similar to Anna Nicole Smith's case.

Phatelara,  June 27, 2009 8:19 AM

Oh, my fault la sbb didn't write much about the advertisers. Hehe..
