Michael Jackson was an incredibly talented child. That can go without saying, even though it was just said. The Jackson 5 were a dynamic group whose music will live forever.
Early work by a solo Michael, showed that he could dominate our world, looking a little strange, but making us all dance like zombies anyways. Unfortunately, Michael Jackson's actual talent degraded from then on until we had the skeleton who died from an insisted upon drug overdose last year.
What happened to him? Well, it could have been the pressure of being so good so young and needing to continue to be the best. It could be his parents, who are still mooching off their son's decayed royalty remains. It could be his siblings who are probably still jealous, except for Janet, who seems to be the only other one to have talent after 1979. Or it could be that this is an example of someone who became so rich and famous so quickly and was able to get whatever he wanted, except to be a white woman.
That said, it has been a year since his death. Can we please stop talking about him. We can play all the great music we want, but can we all just please shut up about the formerly talented, plastic surgery addict, possible pedophile, and definite freakazoid now?
