Michael Jackson 1958-2009

The latest news to surface our scene since Obama was elected President, was the death of the legendary Michael Jackson. And though this isn't the first time you've heard about this tragic incident, best believe it certainly wont be the last. I received a lot of messages, asking me about how i felt about the death of the King of Pop, and honestly it still doesn't seem real. The fact that someone has died is never a understanding topic for me, I can remember in 2001 when the late great Aaliyah passed, it was so mind bottling that someone so talented and beautiful died so tragically. But the thing about Michael is that his music will live on forever, and as cliche as it sounds, its so true. When the media got final confirmation that Jackson was dead BET, MTV, and VH1 played non-stop MJ videos; surprisingly songs you might have heard on movie soundtracks, or food commercials turned out to be hits from MJ. This was truly a trip back down memory lane, and according to iTunes, upon MJ's death his album sales hit the roof even more than when he was alive. record stores recorded that his albums were cleaned off the shelves from fans that just had to have the last little piece of there beloved icon. But with all the issues surrounding the death of the world's greatest artist; news reports say that there have even been suicides surround the death of MJ. Can you believe fans are actually killing themselves over Miachael?...WOW! but when its all said and done, MJ was the best that ever lived, from the Jackson 5 days to Thriller, he RULED!!!
So from the BLACK TIE AFFAIR, we send our special condolences to the Jackson family, and say may MJ rest in peace.
