Michael Jackson... His Life Was Not A Waste

How Michael Jackson Ened...

Michael Jackson just passed away earlier today, on Thursday, the 25th of June 2009, at the age of 50 years old. Michael Jackson died today from full cardiac arrest. Paramedics arrived at his house to find him not breathing, then rushed him to UCLA hospital, later on.. naming his death.

How Michael Jackson Started

Michael Jackson started out as one of the Jackson 5, that consisted of him and his 4 brothers. He became the main singer but would later on would go into a solo career.

Michael was often named the King of Pop. He was an amazing singer and put out some good albums that included some of the following titles: “Thriller”, “Off the Wall”, and “Bad”. While his fame grew far and wide and his decisions and actions would take a toll on his career and reputation. Michael Jackson was born and raised a black man, a good looking black man. However for reasons that are officially unknown (Some have theories) Michael wanted to take the appearance of a White man, which lead to excessive plastic surgeries and skin bleaching, "He never could get white enough.." Many people believe why he continued this process to be even whiter then a white man.

Actions That Take Notice...

Michael continued with actions that made some worry, such as hanging his child over a hotel balcony.. this was for the news to be able to take pictures, not for anything more but none the less the child was over the railing and 4 stories up.

A lot believe Michael did this because he wanted both him and his child to feel loved, being taken into a singing career so early in his life unless there was clapping and aww, pictures and such Michael may have not felt loved, which could actually explain a lot of his actions.

My Thoughts And Personal Notes On Michael Jackson:

Michael Jackson was not a bad man, he did make some poor decisions, but with the toxins running through his body from surgeries and bleaching his skin it's no wonder.

Also can you imagine his pressure of becoming famous by the time he was five!? All he wanted was love, emotionally being stunted at the age of a 5-6 years old... due to being pushed into the flashy career. We know more about child physiology now and can help future children from having this happen quite as much. As for why he changed his appearance it comes down to the simple fact he wasn't happy with himself. Not so much with his physical appearance but his inward emotions which lead to being unhappy with his physical appearance and ultimately a lot of his decisions.

You can hate him, I'm not a fan of him my self... but I don't see what the point to being happy about his death, or even saying that it served him right. His life changed the way we see a lot of things today, maybe in a way he's taught us something in his own mistakes, that we should love ourselves more.. how we should treat our children.

Michael Jackson may not be someone to look up to, but he is... someone we should learn from, and for that he will be remembered, Thanks Michael, rest in peace.

RIP: Michael Jackson: (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

This is a very informative blog, thank you for writing it.

There will always be people that love and hate, no matter who the person in question. Michael Jackson in my eyes was a truly gifted performer. He had the ability to captivate an audience like no others. He is in the ranks of Elvis and the Beetles. Mayber our Adam Lambert will be there too!

For those who don't think Michael had talent, go to youtube and watch some of the vidoes of Michael doing the moon walk, or singing "Billie Jean." Michael is in a league of his own and will be missed by millions.

I can only imagine the scars he had from his superstardom. You are right, since he was 5 years old, he was in the lime light. Just imagine not being able to go to the store without being hounded by the press. Michael didn't have a childhood. That is probably why he was so obsessed by children. I don't believe for a moment he was a child molester. I think he was still a child in his mind during all of this.

Rest in peace Michael, I will always love and respect you!

Rvsource, I agree that he was gifted, he really was great.. and though gone will continue to be. I don't think he was a chld molester either, like you said he didn't have a childhood that probably is a big part of why he was like he was.

Rest in peace Michael.

You can Izombiheartzoey, better then being flustered and upset. I am ending this conversation here because I don't feel the need to continue it nor do I think this is an appropriate place. Have a nice day. ^_~
