What I learned from Michael Jackson

Posted on: June 27, 2012

On the 3rd anniversary of his death and as a tribute to his life and achievements, here’s what I learned from the greatest artist of our time:

-Moon-walking is hard (in my case, impossible), no matter how smooth the soles of your shoes are.

-Always say “Shamon” instead of “come on”. It keeps people guessing what you’re saying and makes them feel like idiots once they’ve read the lyrics.

-You can’t attempt to do the toe stand if you’re not wearing cropped pants and bright socks.

-The Crotch Grab doesn’t look good on a girl.

-Do not try the anti-gravity lean if you don’t have pegs rising from the floor into the heels of your specially-made dancing shoes. If you do, you will fall face-down. Been there, done that.

-Try listening to “Wanna Be Startin’ Something” and not wiggle your foot, tap your desk or move at all. It’s a physical impossibility.

-Only if you are Michael Jackson you get to set wacky trends every decade or so: a sparkling glove on one hand, jackets in all styles, from red leather to sparkling to military-style, and match with a hat if needed.

-You can be as rich and powerful as you want and still be lonely and lost.

-A child that is not allowed to be a child will never really grow up.

-It’ll be a long time before another artist as complete as Michael Jackson comes along.

-And last but not least: If you wanna make the world a better place take a look at yourself and then make a change

My family recently saw the Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson tribute. It was fantastic. He was a one-of-a-kind artist,that’s for sure.

Yes, I remember reading your blog about it and feeling extremely jealous.
Thanks for stopping by

Fabulous post. As a Michael Jackson fan I totally appreciate this.

I wrote this 2 years ago, but MJ’s legacy remains the same.

So, here it goes again:
