I've never been a big fan (outside of a handful of songs). The closest I've ever even come to owning an MJ record was USA for Africa, yet it feels so surreal that he is no longer living. I think it is a testament to how huge a star he was that even non-fans can feel in some way affected by his passing.
Whatever side of the fence you stand on on his infamy (I myself have always been a fairly harsh critic of his behavior), there's just no denying that this is a man who changed the face of music, videos, dance, performance and fame.
He was clearly a troubled soul, yet managed to also give the world a lot of joy and I do hope he is finally at peace.
