MJ- The KING of POP !!!
        Last year, a news shocked the whole world. It is rarely possible in this selfish and materialistic world that a news can dither the whole world at a time. This can be made possible only by some big persona and big achievers. Last year on 25th June, the King of Pop - Michael Joseph Jackson lost his life at the age of 50. This broke the heart of many pop lovers. Michael Jackson is popular all over the world and everyone knows him. He was bit controversial and polemic too but he was also known for his good deeds and helpful nature. I remember once he came to India and it made a big news all over the world. People used to jump off terraces just to have a jhalak of Michael Jackson. He is shortly known as MJ. Today, we are celebrating the King of Pop - MJ's 52nd birth anniversary. 

           Michael Jackson was born on 29th August,1958. He was an American recording artist, entertainer and philanthropist. MJ is referred as the most successful entertainer of the world by Guinness World Records. He began his solo career from 1971. He was also voted as the No.1 Global Music Icon by music fans in an international poll. Jackson's 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. His other records, including Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995), also rank among the world's best-selling. Jackson is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice.

             His other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records, 13 Grammy Awards , 26 American Music Awards, 13 number-one singles in the United States in his solo career and the estimated sale of over 800 million records worldwide. Jackson won hundreds of awards, which have made him the most-awarded recording artist in the history of music. He was also a notable humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising hundreds of millions of dollars for beneficial causes and supporting more than 39 charities.

             According to Wikipedia-  Aspects of Jackson's personal life, including his changing appearance, personal relationships and behavior, have generated controversy. In 1993, he was accused of child sexual abuse, but the case was settled out of court and no formal charges were brought. In 2005, he was tried and acquitted of further sexual abuse allegations and several other charges after the jury ruled him not guilty on all counts. While preparing for his concert series This Is It, Jackson died on June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest. Before his death, Jackson had reportedly been administered drugs such as propofol and lorazepam. The Los Angeles County Coroner declared his death a homicide, and his personal physician pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter. Jackson's death triggered a global outpouring of grief, and as many as one billion people around the world reportedly watched his public memorial service on live television. In March 2010, Sony Music Entertainment signed a US$250 million deal with Jackson's estate to retain distribution rights to his recordings until 2017, and to release seven posthumous albums over the decade following his death.

            Through my Blog, I would like to wish MJ a VERY VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me and my readers. We are missing you and your art forms.
