"And when the groove is dead and gone, you know that love survives." -Michael JacksonMy heart is broken tonight. MJ was a HUGE part of my life. I remember the first time I saw the Thriller video (I was 6 and flipping through channels late at night), then watching it over and over when I was 11, so excited that I'd be dancing to it in competition. I remember sitting on the floor watching "Scream" with Janet, thinking "this is epic." I remember seeing the "Bad" video at my grandparents' house. I remember my heart breaking when allegations came out against him, and it continued to break for him over the last decade or so. When "Invincible" came out, I bought it the first day and wore it out. We used to blast it on the way to school.
Mike was so ahead of his time, so brilliant, and i still can't believe he's gone. he truly IS the king of pop, and his music will live on forever.
