Michael Jackson is no more. A legend a performer passed away and left one and all a bit of a shock and dismay, although his hysteresis dies down over the last decade or so but he remains near mythic icon for pop music. My father though still confused if he was a singer or a dancer but did by a few Michael Jacksons cassettes and one of the first CDs he bought was an MJ compilations.
The hysteria for MJ almost preceded him every where he went and he manage to whip such gigantic wave of emotions, something which may be equaled in the future but will never ever be bettered. Some said that in music industry there was Michael and then there were other while some said he was one man rescue team for the music industry. I don’t know whether Nasem Taleb would consider a black swan event or a white swan. (This has nothing to with him or other being black or white, beige or sky blue.) There was no doubting his fan following, his talent and performance and his ability to zoom past the #1 on all music charts but you can also say that he left behind lots of doubts and confusion. I think he would have to be top few person in last 50 years who bought people alike.
He remained an antonym to the word normal. I think it is safe to conclude there would be no other Michael Jackson. I wanted to do a Michael Jackson post a few months back but wasn’t to be, I wasn’t planning his obituary though. But guess that is how life unwinds. No matter what he did he made jaws drop, despair and affection for him was in equal measure and one could have never ever ignored him. A confusion which is kinds a hereditary, I mean something on similar lines to my father; I wonder if he was a better singer or a better dancer. I think he was par excellence in both which made him perhaps the most loved and revered performer, so much so that the best of performer swear by his name. I often see him and Madonna as parallels, interns of eccentricity, marvelous performances and their mass following.
MJ would remain a legend and I think the fan following will only grow.
The Blonde Bomshell Farah Fawcett died fighting cancer on the same day. I wish to bid her adieu as well.
When Amul posts,you see.
They have dedicated this to Micheal Jackson.
