This is the poster I had on the BACK of my door when I was in the 4th grade. I had to put it on the BACK of the door so that when my mom came in the room she would not have to look at it. I wasn't really allowed to have posters of boys up on my walls. It was the only poster of a boy that I ever had in my room.
Honestly I don't ever remember being infatuated with him like "oh my gosh he's so hot!" (although he was pretty cute before he went and messed it all up). I just know that I have always been enamored by his talent.
I'm a TOTAL pop culture watcher....but I've never been one to become overly emersed into it. I would never sit outside a place like Neverland and wallow in the loss. Nor would I have stood outside the courtrooms when he was undergoing the trial if I lived in that area. I'm just not THAT into it all.
But I will say that to this day I have always remained a fan. The image above is the one that sticks in my mind. His music still brings a smile to my face. I'm sad that will never get to see him in concert because I think he was an entertainment GENIUS!
It was very sad to see his daughter say goodbye to him. There are a lot of people who think he was a lot of things....but WOW...that moment just really humanized him again, don't you think.
Anyway. Think what you want to think. I will always be able to put on an MJ song and "Rock with You"
