For as long...

For as long as i live, i never want to hear anyone say again(after Usher,Chris Brown Omarion, etc) "He is the next Michael Jackson" because that will never be true. I think the saying "never say never" deserves an exception in this case. Michael Jackson passed away today, 6/25/09 at the UCLA hospital, at the age of 50, and he will forever be remembered. But as most times with deaths of celebrities who have had "problems" you have that fair share of people on the sideline who dwell more on those problems than the actual successes. Not to advocate for what he did or didn't do, i believe that we should remember him for his music, hard work, triumph, and over all megastardome. With albums such as Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory, Invincible, and the list goes on, he is accredited for more than just "singing." We can give him credit for paving the way for SO many of the artists out today, from the lyrics they sing, samples they use, or the steps they dance, Michael Jackson is accredited for so much of it, and the fact that he is definitely one of the greatest performers of our time doesn't hurt either. I know others who are older than me can remember dancing to his music playing on the record player and now to my generation who have him on our ipods and online playlists. I know i can remember my first time seeing the thriller video at the age of about 3 or 4, and i was scared out of my life, but as i grew up and listened to him more and more, like most people i fell in love with the music. From the Jackson 5 to The Wiz from records to tapes to ipods to YouTube videos Michael Jackson you will always be remembered. God Bless you and your family. R.I.P.
