EDIT: I have edited this post to talk about MJ’s funeral
You dont have to be his fan to mourn his death. In fact, you dont have to be a fan of music at all to mourn his death.
The death of MJ marked the end of an era, an end to a phenomenon, an end to the life of the real celebrity, a musical genius, the true King of Pop.
I was dancing on his tunes before I started walking. Sadly, my children will never know who this man was.
He was an icon who had seen the worst in his life, his career marred by controversies, always coming back as a real hero. Lately there had been rumors that he had reverted to Islam, if that is true then he was not only accepted wholeheartedly by the people, he had been honored by Allah (SWT) too. If that is not true, he will still remain a worldly legend that people of the coming generations would look up to and admire.
He left too soon but his mortality has made him immortal.
EDIT: MJ’s funeral
I didnt watch the funeral. It was heart wrenching. I couldnt watch people converting MJ’s funeral into a concert. It was too much for me.
Just a while back, someone sent in MJ’s children’s pics and I got tears in my eyes. I dont know how these kids will cope with this. They are soo young and all this attention is completely new to them. MJ tried so hard to keep them away from the spotlight so that they would be able to lead a normal life….now he’s not here to help save his kids from this anymore. May Allah bless them.
