Is it just me, or can nobody believe Michael Jackson is actually dead. I am not some crazy fan who is in denial, in fact I have only got slightly into him since he passed away, but I don’t think it has really hit home for me, and perhaps a huge majority of music fans around the globe.
If this was a publicity stunt, then my goodness isn’t he clever. His family and cronies have made an absolute killing since his death, which has no doubt paid off all the debts he owed from quite a ridiculous spending spree. I mean the dude had a theme park, like, come on!
But when his brother (Jermaine, Tito, Janet i don’t know who it was or don’t really care) spoke to the press announcing the death of his brother my suspicions were no more. You have to be one sick mother****** to lie about something like that, which put my queries to bed.
But somehow I just can’t accept it in my mind. Of course, I adore music and everything part of it, and perhaps Jackson has had quite possibly the biggest influence since the likes of Elvis and The Beatles. But they aren’t dead to me. Presley and Lennon will always be alive, because their music will live on forever, and I have no doubt in my mind Jacksons will too. He may very well exceed them.
Turn on the radio and listen to what is labelled RnB over the last 5-10 years and every ballad, melody, beat, or dance is all over inspired by Jackson. He was ahead of his time. He set the standard that quite frankly nobody will ever meet.
So, in conclusion, as a music lover, I can never admit he has gone. Maybe physically, but he will always be here/there. His contribution to music was spectacular, and although I’m not his biggest fan, it was only right for me to wish him to rest in peace, and thank him for his input.
