Funny how the same people influenced by his style and music (Usher, Neyo, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake etc) are the same people who made it impossible for him to fit into this new hip-hop era. He was just in a class of his own. They say go when the ovation is loudest, but he didn't even get that last ovation. Sad.

Re: Michael Jackson: A Style Retrospective. by sley4life(m): 8:40pm On Jun 27, 2009
The question i keep asking is which country is MJ really from? He is black, but where does he hail from. Some say nigeria others say congo, some say america but where is his foster home.

Hmmm the whites MJ sought to be identified with by doing plastic surgery and all what not, were the same people who ensured his fall through media and judicial wars.

Just as he was retracing his root back to the Black world by involving people like Rev. Jesse Jackson and others, in his comeback bid, one might not rule out his dogged adversaries' involvement in his sudden death.


RIP Miko

He spent some time in Bahrain, if that helps.

sad sad sad. . .Am trying hard not to cry. . .
Nice compilations spiked,it's loaded with memories. . .
He Came, He Saw, He Conquered BUT He Ruined His Conquest With Vain Materialistic Tendencies.
What An Ironic Life For An Embattled Soul.
He Never Enjoyed His Childhood Because Of The Twin Effect Of Early Fame And Fame Mismanagement.
Fare Thee Well Great One As You Moon Walk Your Way To The Other Realm. . .
With Great Lessons For The Living.

Adieu.

CHILD'S PLAY
Despite his ever-present smile in photos (like this one circa 1970), life at home in the Jackson household was anything but happy. Jackson spoke out about the childhood abuse he endured at the hands of his father during a lengthy 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey. And in the 2003 documentary Living with Michael Jackson, the singer told interviewer Martin Bashir that during Jackson 5 rehearsals, father Joe "sat in the chair and he had this belt in his hand. If you didn't do it the right way, he would tear you up, really get you."

LITTLE SIS
Though he and sister Janet (pictured in 1972) were close as siblings, Jackson had his typical big brother moments, like nicknaming her Dunk because of her size. "You look like a donkey, you're so big," he said. Years later, in 2001, the pair teamed up for the edgy song and video "Scream," which earned them a Grammy nomination. "Everyone sees he is different. There's no question about that," she said in 2007. "He's my brother. I love him regardless."

FUNNY GUY
During a 1972 appearance on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, Jackson showed off his funny bone. "I can't make up my mind whether to be a jet pilot, an astronaut or the governor of Georgia," deadpanned Michael when Bono asked what he wanted to be when he grew up. In his teen years, Jackson (who that year earned an Oscar nomination for Best Song for "Ben") struggled with self-esteem issues – especially about his acne and a nose he felt was too big. "I think every child star suffers through this period because you're not the cute and charming child that you were," he told Oprah Winfrey in '93.

BAND OF BROTHERS
After leaving Motown Records in 1975, Jackson and his brothers changed their name from the Jackson 5 to the Jacksons, releasing six albums between 1976 and 1984. At the time, Michael was the group's lead songwriter, and the period produced hits like "Can You Feel It." Simultaneously, the singer was striking out on his own, pursuing solo projects like 1978's film The Wiz and his celebrated solo album Off the Wall.

Re: Michael Jackson: A Style Retrospective. by IFELEKE(m): 2:20pm On Jun 28, 2009
GOOD TIMES
Teaming up with longtime pal Diana Ross, Jackson celebrated The Wiz's premiere with a bash on Oct. 24, 1978. The two shared a common history and career trajectory, each getting their start as a part of Motown groups before forging solo careers. While they maintained a professional relationship – Jackson later wrote and produced Ross's 1982 single "Muscles" – the two maintained a personal connection over the years.

Re: Michael Jackson: A Style Retrospective. by IFELEKE(m): 2:22pm On Jun 28, 2009
A BRICK IN THE 'WALL'
After his successful turn in The Wiz, Jackson released his fifth solo album, Off the Wall, on Aug. 10, 1979. Coproduced by friend Quincy Jones, the Grammy-winning album spawned hit singles like "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "Rock with You." "He had it all …talent, grace, professionalism and dedication," Jones said in a statement after learning about Jackson's death. "He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever.

KING OF POP:
MOON LANDING
It was the moment that had kids everywhere trying to walk backwards: Jackson, in cropped pants and loafers, debuted the smooth-sliding "moonwalk," one of the most iconic dance moves ever choreographed, during the 1983 primetime special Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever. Singing with his brothers and solo, he performed his hit "Billie Jean" – and left the audience screaming for more. He later reprised the moment at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards
