Michael Jackson is gone. One thing I think everyone can agree on is that he was a truly tragic figure. Where I differ from most is that I wasn’t a fan.

Get past Motown and I didn’t like his music. He was talented, but I thought it was over produced, over-hyped, and over the years, has served as the model for the likes of Madonna, the Jonas Brothers, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears.  It’s the cynical hype machine music model. The model that says it is not about the music, it’s about the brand and the bottom line. I have trouble believing The King of Pop got any kind of release from his art.

Goodbye Michael Jackson, I hope you get a chance to express yourself where ever you are.
