how’s everybody holding up? i’m still having trouble with the unexpected passing of michael jackson (i know there are cynics out there but i’m not having any of that here on popbytes) i’ve been listening to his music non-stop – i’ve got his videos playing on one TV (the other is tuned to CNN) i also keep thinking about how i would sometimes make snarky swipes at him for being so bizarre – there’s no question that he danced to the beat of a very different drummer – but who am i to be so judgmental? his sudden death took me by complete surprise (along with everyone else i know) i guess hindsight is always 20/20 – i’m glad to know he’ll always be remembered for the incredible musical legacy he left us – icons like michael jackson are few & far between … i can’t even imagine anyone ever being able to top his superstar status! i’m grateful to have been witness to part of his brilliant career – my only regret is not having seen him perform live! i figured if his comeback shows went off without a hitch – he’d bring the tour here eventually but sadly we’ll never know what might have been! make sure to visit time magazine’s comprehensive web coverage – below is the commemorative cover being released on monday – i love the shot selected – taken by famed photographer herb ritts – i’m so going to pick myself up a copy – i still can’t believe he’s really gone! popbytes over & out for tonight … xoxo
