Last night, I picked up a copy of TIME Magazine's special tribute issue to the late King Of Pop. Somehow, I found it appropriate to post about it here, considering how much of an influence Michael Jackson was in the world of popculture. His music broke barriers and his presence transcended even towards movies and cartoons, something that not many artists or performers can say in their lifetime. The issue commemorates Mike's life, from his days with the Jackson Five, his breakout release of 'Thriller', and the later years which placed him in a constant state of controversy and gossip. All these phases are eclipsed though by his sudden passing from this world, which still continues to make news as people continue to speculate on how he died. For me however, I choose to honor the lucrative career of a singer who did more than just give his share of breakthrough performances, but also his heart and soul to the fans as well.
The picture that TIME chose for their cover is from one of the most memorable music videos associated with Mike - "In The Closet". Another one of his more provocative songs, it features Mike strutting his stuff and sporting the very attire you see him wear in the cover of the issue. Let's take a trip back and see some MJ goodness in action.
R.I.P Michael Jackson. The King Of Pop Moonwalks in the skies now.
