I grew up in the midst of the Michael Jackson mania. He dominated most of the airwaves of my childhood, and I remember several friends who decorated their binders and peechees (now there's a word you don't hear any more!) with Michael Jackson stickers. I was never a huge fan, but given the era I grew up in, it was impossible to *not* be a fan.

Despite all of the controversy and all of the bizarre stuff he did, the world has lost of its great performers. RIP. I hope he is in peace and happy.

Yes, his life was certainly weird!! A little of everything...lawsuits, scandalous marriages, children by mystery mothers, drugs (prescription, but still), bankruptcy, plastic surgery...and more than anything, talent.

Here here!!! I also wasn't a huge fan, but like you said it was impossible not to be a fan.

And lol, peechee, that word alone made me smile. How about anyone remember the Trapper Keeper's? Ha ha ha. : )
