The First Significant Celebrity Death of My Lifetime

I hate to be another media outlet that is pumping this story, but I need to.

This man composed and performed my favorite song of all time—“Beat it.” He was also my first favorite musical artist. I would dance around in my fuckin’ diapers to that stuff. Sad day. Please understand what he did to (and for) music and recognize that pretty much every artist in every genre has received some form of inspiration from this man. There is plenty more to say, but I will leave it at that.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009), the King of Pop, the musical icon of our generation, please rest in peace. You were one of a kind.

    "Michael Jackson (1958-2009), the King of Pop"
    I read this part wrong, thinking you said king of poop and wondering why, and girlishly giggled to myself for no apparent reason. Then when I saw what it really was I laughed harder. No, it was not funny, and yes, this is why I don't have my own blog.

    Truly a sad day. When videos of your performances are playing at a Burger King in Playa del Carmen, Mexico you know you are a transcendent talent. RIP.
