Michael Jackson

I'm stunned by the news of Michael Jackson's passing. Regardless of his numerous plastic surgeries and bizarre behavior, his impact on music and culture was profound. One of my first cassette tapes (yes, I said cassette tapes) was Dangerous and I can remember being allowed to stay up late to watch the premiere of the Black or White music video. I'll leave you with a Jackson inspired piece of art from a fellow Etsian (my fave is the Madonna monkey).

Thriller was my first tape...he was an odd man, but could he sing and move.

I know it is so sad! My sister and I used to dance and sing to all of his songs. I remember the Black and White video and the Remember the Time making of the video. No matter how childlike he was as an adult, he was still amazing

Thriller was my favorite. I don't like him otherwise though. I think he molested children, disgusting.
