He was known as the King of Pop, and no one has ever taken his place. He broke down racial barriers after being the 1st African American to appear on MTV. He spoke his mind through his music, giving inspirational as well as peace and love related messages to the ears of listeners. I admire the wonderful messages he has shared through his songs, and best of all he has never disrespected women or treat women as mere objects of pleasure like some artists do in this era. I admire his one of a kind moonwalk, his brave sense of fashion ( white gloves n socks :P) and his 'I don't care what people say' attitude. Its a waste that my generation won't be able to see first hand what a good performer he was. Enough said, rest in peace mj.
