Michael Jackson.

He was a musical genius. There are reports that he died today of cardiac arrest. I am at a loss for words. I was hoping he would produce another “Billy Jean”, one of the best POP tracks of all time. I remember sneaking downstairs in the middle of the night when I was a kid to watch the Michael Jackson music video Marathons MTV used to have, and trying to replicate his sweet dance moves. I am so sad.

I leave you with a live performance of Michael Jackson’s Beat it.
