Those who are obsessed with Michael Jackson have been life long fans and love his music and dancing. It is the same with every other band or musician out there. There are die hard fans of every band/musician and those who are not fans don't understand why.
I have lots of friends who are both a freakish talent and have personal challenges to deal with. The artists voted him #2 singer of all time. He might be considered one of the best dancers ever. I've borrowed a few steps. Im always disappointed when people are idolized VS appreciated. I feel sad for MJ. I know a couple of his friends. It's tuf to always be in the eye of ithers he had other more serious issues. As an artist. Hard to find more overall talent.
