I am deeply saddened. I feel like I lost a friend. I'm a completely dramatic person so this may seem silly and a little immature and unnecessary (maybe even a tad weird? yes... I can't explain it) but I was in utter shock over the death of Michael Jackson. I think it's death in general that I don't deal well with but for an icon of that magnitude to be ripped from the world so suddenly, I really had a hard time yesterday handling the news! I listened to his music all night, read the stories... couldn't watch the news because it was just too much.
Growing up I would listen to the albums Thriller and Bad ALL THE TIME. Over and over and over to make sure I memorized all of the worlds. I was slightly in love with him, I'm not going to lie. I remember being over at Bobbi's house and she owned the album HIStory. We would listen to it all night and just talk about how much we loved his music. I'm not kidding that's how much we loved him!!
Even if you aren't a MJ fan because of some things you've heard in the media or don't agree with some of the details of his life, you have probably at least enjoyed a few of his songs. How could you not? A pop icon and legend.
