Michael Jackson dead...

Michael Jackson, the king of pop, the greatest pop star ever died due to a cardiac arrest in his room on Thursday. He was 50.
He was born as a cute African-American guy. "Normal", if you will, and very talented. By age 11, he was a hit, and by 14, he has his first #1 hit with Ben ( a touching love song..).


He was a superstar, and one of the first who vanished the gap between black and white music, and eradicated the race barrier. He was the first African-American entertainer to be as popular on MTV as he was.
His album 'Thriller', released in 1982, broke all records and till date is the best selling album of all time.
Though he was a great musician, he was even better performer. as it was stage was his true calling. He popularized the dance steps such as robot and Moonwalk. And I have not seen anyone doing better than him.
He made the whole world moonwalk together...!!
He was an utter genius..
Yes, He was the King of Pop.


He was the guy for the Music Industry, and everything he touched was turning into gold. But then something happened, And it shattered the world around him. 
He once said, 
There's a Mother's Day and there's a Father's Day, but there's no Children's Day. It would mean a lot. World peace.
But, child was the word that made his life a living hell. He kept on saying, he can never harm a child, but to no avail. And this took heavy toll on him,his career and his life.
That child molestation case against him wrecked his career like no one ever has. He was devastated. 
But he continued to say,
Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be lived.


He was never able to reach those standards again, he was never able to be on #1 again.
But he gave himself another chance. He announced a comeback tour. And it was looking like, he would be once again be on the top. And he deserved that chance too, but God had his own will. 



It's an end of era today.
The Industry has lost one of his greats.

For me,

He would always be an icon, a cult status.
I still remember, singing the song 'We Are The World...' on the school stage.
I still remember hearing hits like Off the wall, Beat it...


As he said,


IF YOU ENTER THIS WORLD KNOWING THAT YOU ARE LOVED AND YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD KNOWING THE SAME, THEN EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN BETWEEN CAN BE DEALT WITH...


WE LOVE YOU MJ,
AND WE WOULD MISS YOU...
