RIP M.J.

While it seems like the entire world is mourning the death of pop icon legend, Michael Jackson, I am forced to reminisce about what little I did know about the King of Pop. I remember that when I was 8 years old I spent months going to a jazz class that I hated but that the one thing I was looking forward to was the recital. Our recital routine was to Bad by Michael Jackson and our costumes (is that even what they are called for a "recital"?) for the recital were SWEET. Electric blue spandex and a sequined top that came dangerously close to showing our stomachs. I LOVED it. Unfortunately my lovely sister gave me the CHICKEN POX and I didn't get to dance in the recital! My oldest friend, MMM, had to shake her butt to Michael Jackson all by herself, and she has never let me forget it. :) Those were the days in which M.J. might have been considered normal. Then he turned into this.I know you aren't supposed to speak ill of the dead but I have thought this guy was CRAZY for a very long time now. When I think of Michael Jackson, I think of scandals like.Or how about this?Or his latest look.It is sad to me that such an icon could have gone down such a BIZARRE road. And what will happen to Prince Micheal I., Paris, and Prince Michael II. a.k.a. "Blanket"? Don't even get me started on that fruit cake Debbie Rowe! I understand the hype over his death because he WAS infact the King of Pop at one point in time, but I think that his whole life was a little sad and freaky. He was definitely Wacko Jacko. I am more than a little baffled by his life! I am just hoping the best for his children!

I agree, very sad in so many ways but many other reasons to remember him highly as a musical icon.

You've got to admit, little Michael Jackson was the cutest, coolest, kid ever. AND a music legend.

Sarah, I agree with your mom, he was quite fabulous before he went crazy....I actually did a talent show dance with some of my kindergarteners way back when!!!! Oh, great memories!
