Today is the saddest day for fans of Michael. I still cannot believe he is no more!
Very rare is a person who can rise beyond expectations.
Very rare is a personality who can rise above music.
Very rare are people who can become bigger then their selected professions.
A rare performer!
A true artiste!
The most sensitive human!
When Michael is not on stage he would be very shy, fragile and too much sensitive. It would look like he could not even kill a fly. But when on stage, you cannot help but see the sheer brilliance of his performance which only he could do it because he meticulous planned every move while practicing.
He practiced moon walk over years and only when he was satisfied after so many years he went on stage to do that and make audience into frenzy. Lucky are those who have seen him perform live.
He was practicing for the last show...
Michael is no more!
I am still in shock and unable to digest that how can a person go away all of sudden. I am not able to see the TV because the moment I on I see Michael live, with passion, energy, enthusiasm, zest, zeal and in control of his songs.
I switch off the TV.
Michael Jackson has left and may his soul rest in peace; the way he wanted peace. Because I know that except him nobody will understand what he really wanted.
He will continue to create history even after he has left. I am sure about it because just 3 weeks back he said he has countless songs that have been recorded and passed them as legacy to his kids. He will continue to haunt people too.
I have studied some people who do not care for what media want them to be and the confused media goes on painting that person life as if they own them. One amongst them was Howard Hughes. Even after his death, he continued to make news. So will Michael Jackson for generations to come.
There will be many legal cases, right from family, staff, wife, music companies, and shockingly many wills of Jackson will come up many of those will be fake; people are going to be after his legacy, will and catalogs. Media will have busy time but the spirit of Michael Jackson will go on at least for next 100 years. His unused albums will top the charts like never before.
Below are some of the quotes of Michael Jackson...
If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.
It's a complete lie, why do people buy these papers? It's not the truth I'm here to say. You know, don't judge a person, do not pass judgment, unless you have talked to them one on one. I don't care what the story is, do not judge them because it is a lie.
Yeah, Wacko-Jacko, where did that come from? Some English tabloid. I have a heart and I have feelings. I feel that when you do that to me. It's not nice.
Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel.
They did it to try and belittle me, to try and to take away my pride. But I went through the whole system with them. And at the end, I - I wanted the public to know that I was okay, even though I was hurting.
Well, especially now I come to realize - and then - I would do my schooling which was three hours with a tutor and right after that I would go to the recording studio and record, and I'd record for hours and hours until it's time to go to sleep.
I'm happy to be alive, I'm happy to be who I am.
I'm never pleased with anything; I'm a perfectionist, its part of who I am.
I will say again that I have never, and would never, harm a child. It sickens me that people have written untrue things about me.
I remember one time we were getting ready to go to
South America and everything was packed up and in the car ready to go and I hid and I was crying because I really did not want to go, I wanted to play. I did not want to go.
Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.
Because parents have power over children. They feel they have to do what their parents say. But the love of money is the root of all evil. And this is a sweet child. And to see him turn like this, this isn't him. This is not him.
Because I wanted to have a place that I could create everything that I that I never had as a child. So, you see rides. You see animals. There's a movie theater.
And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I'd see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.
You know, let's put it this way, if all the people in
who have had plastic surgery, if they went on vacation, there wouldn't be a person left in town. Hollywood
My mother's wonderful. To me she's perfection.
And my goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance
Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.
-Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958–June 25, 2009)
