Michael Jackson Innovations

Michael Jackson was very innovative, some of his dance moves were a trend, even the things he purchased for his home were different than many other famous people. Most of his music is timeless, and Michael's music will last a very long time. Michael Joseph Jackson was born August 29, 1958 and passed away on June 25, 2009. He was born in Gary, Indiana where it snows during the winter weather; Indiana is famous for the Indy 500 - race car driving.

Michael Jackson became very famous when he branched off from the singing group "The Jackson 5." The Jackson 5 group members are Michael Jackson's brothers who are: Tito, Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon, and Michael Jackson. Michael was the youngest of all his brothers, and of the singing group The Jackson 5.

When Michael Jackson began making solo hit records in the 1980s, his career took off to a whole new level not just for him but in music itself. In the 1980s once Michael Jackson became a solo musician, he began to change his hairstyle, his skin tone, and his facial features. He was handsome when he was with The Jackson 5, but he became very handsome and good looking in the 1980s during his solo career. Many of his fans hoped he had stayed the way he looked in the 1980s, and not become over-obsessed with his own appearance.

His style of clothing was creative, and made him stand out from the other musical artist. The innovative clothing style he wore was; the one white glittery glove and the white glittery socks. Michael also wore high-water pants, which means his socks were seen when he wore pants. He wore Penny Loafer shoes all the time; Michael's Jheri Curl hairstyle had the one curl hanging down his the side of his forehead. These are some things that made him innovative as well as his music and dancing.

Many other musical artists had their own unique clothing styles as well. Michael will always leave a remembrance not only in the way of his unique clothing style, but also for his style in dance, song, and music videos.

      If you seen sad eyes, it could be because he didn't have enough people around him that he could actually trust, and that includes his father/Joseph Jackson. But I'm sure Michael trusted some individuals, they just had their own agenda for being his friend.

      I was working and living in Las Vegas many years ago when Michael was still alive. I was in Caesars and he was about 300 feet away standing in the entrance way of one of the forum shops. He was having a forum shops closed down so that he could shop with his family. I stood for a second and looked at him, he was wearing a surgical mask.

      The people were screaming his name and flashes of cameras everywhere exploding. When I tell you that he had the saddest eyes that I have ever seen a person have, it is no joke. I loved his music, videos and I was hoping to see one of his concerts. Never happened. Every time I see his face or hear his music...that is what is left as a memory of him. The man with the saddest eyes I have ever seen a person have. :*(
