michael jackson

I will not even attempt to analyse the impact of Michael Jackson on the world of music. I simply want to say that in the midst of all the bizarre behavior, mental instability, and sexual abuse accusations (and these things can't be ignored), he was also brilliant; one of a kind. He influenced, more than that, he shaped pop music in a way that few do. He was gifted, talented, brilliant, one of the most iconic pop figure of the last 50 years, and yet, so many uncertainties, questions, strife, conflict… so uncertain of who he was.

The Jackson 5 "I Want You Back", their first #1 hit, on the Ed Sullivan Show 1969.
