Not quite over it yet and this is a long overdue post. I wasn't exactly a huge fan but his tragic death at the age of 50 shook me to the very core. I grew up listening to his music (I am an 80s child after all)--my favorites being Rock With You, Don't Stop Til You Get Enough, Rock With You, Human Nature and Why (a track that featured his 3 nephews the 3T, one of which was my ultimate highschool freshman year crush Tai!)
Michael Jackson was an icon and an inspiration in both the entertainment and the fashion industry. One who has touched many lives and helped so many people. I have always admired his style. No matter what people said he always managed to get away with it fashion-wise. I love his blings, all the gold appliques, the gloves. I am especially digging his statement jackets. What a collection!
I do not think the world will ever really move on from this great loss (it's much like Princess Diana in 1997 actually). There will never be another Michael Jackson in this lifetime. And his legacy will live on... he epitomized pop music after all and got us wearing blinged gloves.
