plez sez: on yesterday, the world lost the consummate performer. take james brown, elvis presley, jackie wilson, fred astaire, and sammy davis, jr., roll 'em all up into one person and you get MICHAEL JACKSON!
was he weird? no doubt! but i'll be honest, there are few artists who could perform and raise their craft to a level very rarely seen before or since, MICHAEL JACKSON was one such artist. he is definitely "gone too soon!" plezWorld will remember the KING OF POP through his timeless music and videos.
i saw him in concert as a teenager when he was part of "the jacksons" and then again in the early '90s during his "Dangerous Tour"... the boy was bad! it was amazing to witness so much talent in one human being.
black penny loafers. white socks. the moonwalk!
