Michael Jackson is NOT dead !!
Yesterday I met a very nice black guy on the street who just got out of a limousine. He was a real nice but also eccentric guy. His face looked like he had lots of plastic surgeries.
We started talking and went for a drink that he offered to pay. During the 40 minutes we sat there he told me lots about his hectic life.
He was born in 1958 in the state of Indiana and raised in a very musical family.
He told me he was a pop-artist and started performing when he was a kid together with his brothers in 1964. Later, in 1971 he started a solo career and scored numerous superhits and made lots of albums and video-clips from the 80's.
At this point he became infinitely more popular than his brotherly group.
Five of his solo albums are among the top-sellers of all time and one of his albums became the largest selling album worldwide in the history of the recording industry with more than 70 million copies sold. The singles from this album sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, another all time record.
In 1983 he introduced an already exsisting dance and made it popular around the world: the Moonwalk.
The moonwalk is a dance technique in which the dancer moves backward while it looks like as if he is walking forward.
He married twice; one of his wifes was Elvis Presley’s daughter, and got 3 children. Both marraiges were short and are some say there were just to keep up an image.
In 1988 he opened his own amusement park on his property but had to close it in 2006 and lived in several countries after that before returning to the US again.
He had a large collection of fine (and expensive) art but also a wide range of stuffed animals and mannequins.
He made several concert tours but the last one was 1996. A new tour was planned for 2009 and the whole world was excited. Despite all the preparations this tour was sadly cancelled.
Quitte a story !!
Sadly I really had to go so we said goodbye. When I left he said:’ By the way, my name is M.J.’
Then …. I woke up and realised it is April 2013………
Michael Jackson is not dead …… he lives forever in our hearts !!!
