HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE KING! Celebrating 53 Years Of Michael Jackson

Today would have been the 53rd birthday of Michael Jackson, the musical icon who famously traded his childhood so that we could enjoy the gift of his music. Celebrate his life in the gallery inside....

 

Although fans, critics and tabloids have called him many things over the years, the name that Elizabeth Taylor gave him "The King Of Pop" seems to be the one with the most staying power.

With many people able to recount stories of growing up with Michael, and charting the milestones in their lives with his music, it is without a doubt that MJ is one of the most influential muscians of all-time. 

Like Mozart or Beethoven, his musical contributions will stand the test of time and continue to make generation of moonwalkers and silver-gloved fans dance.

But there's also the side of Michael that we rarely saw.  Michael was a doting father and spent a lot of time and money giving to charitable causes.  And we rarely got to see into his private side.

  

Visit the gallery and re-live two rare MJ moments:

 

Imagine seeing firs hand Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Prince (who seemed like he was on another planet) all on stage together in 1983.  Classic!

 

And watch Michael in "Daddy" mode in this rare clips where he wipes noses, sings songs and pampers his kiddies.

 

R.I.P. to the leader of Jackson 5....

I have been a fan of this

I have been a fan of this wonderful genious of a man since the 1970s. I still have every album (ABC and such) and have followed him thoughout his years. I love MJ, and will always remember him. If you don't know already, check out their variety show on youtube and their cartoon. These were staples in our household growing up. I love you, MJ, and even though you are no longer here, your legacy lives on in your music! Happy 53rd b.d.

People on this website are

People on this website are the pure embodiment of negativity. Why is it so hard to just refrain from saying anything if you don't have something positive to say? Michael contributed a whole lot to what music is today and yet there are people on this site who have so much anger towards a man who is dead. It's just sad. I've been reading comments on this website for years now and they keep getting more snide and angry for no particular reason as you don't live with these celebrities nor do they owe you, me or anyone but themselves and the people around them. Being positive starts with yourself if you want to make a change. Michael was a prime example of that. Man in the mirror people!

other than a pedophile,

other than a pedophile, here's why mike was a scum bag: way over paid for the Beatles song log so that Beatles member Paul McCartny couldn't get it and he told Paul over the phone "I'm gonna get that from you"
