Michael Jackson dead at 50
There is clearly no debate that Michael Jackson was indeed “The King of Pop”, and that he was a pop culture icon the likes of which we may not ever see again. Over the course of the next few days we will see countless tributes to the entertainer, but let’s not forget that he was also a very flawed man who committed some pretty despicable acts in the latter part of his life.
I’ll respect him for the entertainer he was, but I am ashamed of the man he became. He’ll go out hailed a hero, when he was anything but. That being said, I’ll acknowledge the pop legend whose songs were woven throughout the tapestries of my childhood and teenage memories. I’ve got a lump in my throat, same as you.
Michael Jackson died after going into cardiac arrest today.
