    Michael Jackson my have been a man by today's

    standards but in his mind he was still a boy. Michael never had a normal childhood,and was frequently abused by his father. The media turned him into a freak,a pervert,a *********. But in reality he never was any of those things. I don't think he was ever really happy in his...

    Such Bad Luck

    I have been an MJ fan since I was 4, though my serious "obsession" began when I was 8. I outgrew the obsession thing before I finished high school, but remained a faithful (and sane) fan. After the trial in 2005 I thought for sure than any opportunity to see him perform was gone...

    Gone Too Soon

    I've been watching the media coverage of Michael Jackson. He was going to tour again soon, and he said at the news conference that it would be his last. Now I feel that it was never meant to be. I have heard that he only weighed about 110 pounds. He looked frail, but, then again...

    My First Celebrity Crush

    Fourth Grade that is how far back my memories begin with Michael.  I had the purse, a button that my Aunt and Uncle bought for me and a strong desire for a Thriller Jacket.  I put a picture up of him on my desk at school and told everyone he was my boyfriend.

    Michael Jackson and the Cult of Personality

    The death of the King of Pop seems to be as bizarre as his life.  His life is a study in contrasts.  An amazing talent, he was scarred by an abusive childhood.  I wrote a complete article on WriteOnNewJersey.com.
