Michael's Death

“It seemed to me that his internal essence was at war with the norms of the world. It’s as if he was trying to defy gravity."

Michael Levine, Hollywood publicist

Looking back, I still vividly remember my first blog post.

It was about Michael Jackson.

Never thought I'd have to write a post on his death 4 years after that first post.

Never thought it would end today.

You shattered the barriers of black and white with your music.

You were above what we foolishly term "race".

King of Pop?

I'd say Man of Passion.

Thank you.

No matter what they say, you'd always be defying gravity.

Rest in peace.

Michael Jackson

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

i guess in one way or another, MJ's music has connected with all our lives. it's a great loss to the music industry, considering how much he has made music worth listening to. another genius, buried in the ground. =/
