Born – August 29, 1958; Gary, Indiana, U.S.
Died – June 25, 2009; Los Angeles, California, U.S.
Singer, dancer, eternal child.
Rose to fame as a member of the Jackson 5. Quickly became the star of the group, and not just because he really was the only one with any talent.
Went solo, became a ginormous ‘80s superstar after the release of his album, "Thriller." ‘Memba that video? He turned into a werewolf!!
Had a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles who lived in his house and traveled around the world with him - yet was not invited to his funeral. Sad.
Shocked/amused the world with his increasingly strange behavior, such as remaking his home into a giant amusement park.
Was briefly married to Elvis Presley's daughter - not sure the King would have approved of that.
Had three children, gave them weird names, dangled one of them out a window when he was a baby.
Died of a drug-induced cardiac arrest in 2009, but will always be remembered for his music, and for being a strange man-child who may have boned Elvis' daughter.
We miss ya, MJ!
