RIP "MICHAEL JACKSON"!!!

July 01, 2009

Neither am I a proud owner of MJ's music collection nor am I a big fan, but yes, as a true music lover, I sincerely appreciate some of his songs and strongly agree with the fact that he was one of a kind- an amazing, amazing artist. 

Though, there were times he did things that he should not do. But now that he is no more we may remember him for his extraordinary contribution to the world of music and nothing else. 

"If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with" quoted Jackson once.



 Tremendous sales of his albums while he was alive, and the number of slowdowns suffered by search engines right after his death is a proof that: Yes, he was loved or rather is loved by millions of people. 

At the height of his career, Jackson was indisputably one of the biggest star in the world, selling over 500 million albums. It is not wrong to say that his only competition was - HIMSELF!!! 

That famous moonwalk step, plastic surgeries and his creative music videos - Michael Jackson was unique!!! Though, it is impossible to ignore a million controversies he was confronted with, whether it's the 1993 child sexual abuse accusation (debatable), or 2002 Berlin controversy, Jackson made news for a lot of  wrong reasons. 

Now, the news is everywhere, but I just felt like it was worth mentioning here. It's up to us which Michael Jackson we want to remember - A man full of controversies or someone that broke the color barrier in music industry- A REAL LEGEND!!!

    No denying MJ was a great artist. But I don't think it is upto us to see the better side of MJ. MJ has to die and live with what he has done. People - whether we like it or not will talk of him as an artist and as a molestor. MJ made his destiny as an artist par excellence - and it was he who made his reputation as a molestor.

    It would be unfair to ask people to forget those and remember him only for his music albums. More than unfair, I guess it isn't pragmatic. People wouldn't do that.
