The singer, Michael Jackson, is popularly known as the King of hip hop died on June 25, 2009, at his home on North Carolwood drive in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was found in his room, not breathing, and with a slow pulse by his physician, he called for security and administered CPR all to no avail. Jackson was pronounced dead at the medical center.
He was reported to die as a result of excess propofol and benzodiazepine administered by his personal physician after the investigation conducted and the conclusion that Jackson’s death was a homicide, the physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served two years of his four years’ prison sentence. Michael Jackson died when he was of 50 years.
I think that many people view any type of celebrity as invincible and that is because they feel that these people can do anything and that nothing can harm them. I think people believe that celebrities especially those that have gained success over time can’t be harmed by anything. It seems that nothing can touch them including diseases or injuries. That is why it is so unusual to see a celebrity have health problems. People also believe that they would have known about Michael Jackson’s health problems prior to his death.
Even though it seems that celebrities can have health problems, they have plenty of money to make themselves look healthy unlike the general public who looks sick when they step out of the house with an illness.
Any act of controversy can destroy someone’s career. When Michael Jackson was younger, he made great music, people didn’t think anything about him. He was quiet and shy so he kept his life private. However, when people started to hear about how Michael Jackson enjoyed being around children instead of adults, they started to worry about him and thought less and less about his life and music and instead about the problems that Michael Jackson was going through.
People would rather hear and talk about the controversial issues instead of the music. News would rather relay information about a celebrity’s problems. This would make more people watch their news station. So, they tell more about Michael Jackson’s issues instead of the songs he wrote.
Since I grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, that would be the time when I preferred Michael Jackson’s songs. However, I did love some of his later and earlier songs, but I grew listening to his songs especially in the 1990s. My favorite song is Man in the Mirror. I think it has a nice theme to it. I think many people enjoy the era of music that they grew up with. I think that is normal because they loved listening to music the most during their childhood and teenage years.
Michael Jackson had many eras about his music and these eras contained different types of music for Jackson. It is sad that he didn’t live to make more music to see how it would have changed over time.
Many celebrities choose to live their lives out of the spotlight. Especially, when people have children, they want even more privacy in their lives. This is usually done to protect their children. If they start to expose their children to the public, then that gives the public more of a chance to tease and ridicule the children. This would hurt their children.
When Michael Jackson started having children, I believe he became even more private although I think he still had a private life before children. Some people even celebrities want a private life away from the spotlight and paparazzis. To do this, people have a tendency to stay inside in their homes, but they may go out on occasion.
I feel Michael Jackson’s song “Speechless” is often overlooked by fans. One reason for this may be that it was never released to the radio except in South Korea where it was released as a promotional release. In order to be familiar with this song, you would have to be a really huge Michael Jackson fan and have purchased his album “Invincible” in 2001.
I’ve read this song was part of Michael’s tenth and final studio album. I like the song because it’s a love ballad and there are very moving a cappella sections. The lyrics also move me, especially the part: “When I’m with you I am lost for words, I don’t know what to say. My head’s spinning like a carousel, so silently I pray”.
The coolest Michael Jackson dance move is the moonwalk. It is perhaps the most famous and popular dance move which has been incorporated in various dance forms. The moon walk is named as so, because it gives the impression of a person walking forward yet going backwards.
While it seems quite simple and uses a very straightforward visual illusion techniques, mastering this dance move could take quite a while. Apart from the moonwalk, the forward lean is yet another popular dance move. However, this dance move requires specialized setting and shoes, so as to hook the person on to the ground.
Michael Jackson is considered to be more iconic. Both Michael Jackson and Prince used to have their own unique styles, and their own persona which separated them from the rest of the lot. After all, this is exactly what the reason of their widespread popularity became. Both having contributed a lot to the global entertainment industry, cannot really be differentiated from each other.
Nevertheless, Michael Jackson had broken all records by selling huge copies of catchy music and by introducing an all new style of dance. Together, these two factors make him slightly more iconic. Even though, both carry their own importance in the entertainment world.
Michael Jackson is universally known as the king of pop for a number of reasons. Firstly, Michael Jackson is perhaps the only pop artist up till now who has gained unmatchable global recognition by selling millions of records all over the globe. Apart from catchy music, Michael Jackson also introduced an all new form of dance.
Together, both of these contributions set him apart from the rest of the pop artists of his time. This is one of the main reasons why Michael Jackson is universally considered to be the king of pop. However, while this is not the only reason, it is certainly the main one!
