I got home this evening to the very unexpected news of Michael Jackson’s death. It sounds strange but i just never imagined this happening. It seemed like he would go on forever, even writing this now feels so wrong.
The man truly was a legend that changed music. He sacrificed so much of himself in giving us some of the most memorable moments in pop history. I was not always happy with the way he was treated by the press in recent years: for someone who had achieved so much, he deserved better than the ‘wacko jacko’ nickname. I mean, a legend should be allowed to be weird in peace. Anyway, his music and influence will outlive all of that.
Goodbye MJ, you’ll never be forgotten.
*Farrah Fawcett also passed today. R.I.P.
