As we all know, On Thursday June 25th, Michael Jackson was found not breathing in his home which was believed to be cause by a cardiac arrest. He was immediately taken to a hospital where her was later pronounced dead. He was only 50 years old. The whole world seemed to be devastated that day. Michael Jackson leaves us with decades of timeless music and dance moves that will always be imitated. He was a humanitarian, helping people all over the world. He will truly be missed but is remembered through his legacy.
On July 13, Michael Jackson was suppose to be doing a series of 50 concerts in London. It was called the THIS IS IT tour. Within a matter of about 2 hours 750,000 tickets were sold out. He continues to break records by being the fast selling out artist of all time.
Well...Michael Jackson is my favorite artist. I have collected a lot of his albums, Jackson 5/ The Jacksons albums, and dvds/vhs from back in the day. No other entertainer has been able to make make spend so much money trying collect everything they have done! I strongly believe he was the greatest entertainer of all time. When I found out the news I cried. I got many calls and texts because my friends knew that I was a big fan.
One thing that I was truly upset at is how the media is continue to dog him. The day he passed they're talking about his past charges, his debt, and all this other bad stuff. On the BET awards I think Jamie Foxx said it best "Don't let the media control your opinion about someone" or something like that.
I remember my brother saying when Michael Jackson passes that's gonna be the biggest thing ever. MJ still continues to make headlines and be the talk of the day. I cannot get enough of his music and will hopefully tell my kids and grand kids about his legacy
