Nobody and I mean NOBODY did it like MJ. He was that dude. Every male pop artist out today from Usher to Chris Brown to Justin Timberlake has been substantialy influenced by the decades of brilliance that Michael Jackson gave to the world. (His sis Janet influenced the current female class.) Yes, he had major controversy in his life for the past 10-15 years (and I think people who abuse children are the worst people on earth), BUT I also believe that his contrbutions to music stand the test of time. You have to love Thriller, Bad, Remember The Time, Man In The Mirror and the countless other hit songs, platintum albums and game-changing videos that he created. He turned music videos into prime-time television events. MJ was a genius. He died too soon. Hopefully, all the money from the upsurge of MJ album sales will benefit his children.
