Michael Jackson Style

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009), often referred to as The King of Pop or MJ is an American musician and entertainer. The seventh child of the Jackson family, Michael Jackson debuted on the professional music scene at the age of five as a member of the Jackson 5, and went on to become a pop icon as a solo artist. His successful career and controversial, enigmatic personal life have been a part of pop culture for almost four decades. Jackson has dominated pop music since the late 1970s, becoming the first black entertainer to amass a strong cross-over following on MTV with his revolutionary transformation of the music video as an art form and as a promotional tool. The popularity of videos aired on MTV such as Beat It” and “Billie Jean” created a tremendous synergy that helped to put the relatively young channel “on the map” and Jackson continued to be a dominant figure on MTV with videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream”. Jackson died at 50 years of age. “
