Our Thoughts On You- Michael Jackson

The world was rocked because of Michael Jackson's sudden death the other day. Perhaps, because in a celebrity obsessed world his unparalleled fame was matched by his enigmatic personality. The boy who had a stage presence well beyond his years turned into a man who strangely childlike. Who really knows what shaped him the person he became? An abusive father, famed that was too much for his fragile sense of self. His numerous plastic surgeries, spending sprees and allegations of child molestations transformed him into a freakish caricature. But, we can all celebrate him his irresistible music and extraordinary dance moves. The songs that for many of us are touchstones of our lives as we mark his passing we can think of Michael Jackson in many ways. I prefer to remember him as a huge talent whose music still makes me smile, think and remember not the man in the mirror who could never completely change his ways.
