29 August 1958, Indiana.
Pop icon, the most influential solo artist of our time and winner of 13 Grammy awards, Michael Jackson has sold more then 750 million albums worldwide. And even if you are not a Jacko fan you have heard Thriller, Billy Jean, Scream and Black and White.
What went wrong?
Jacko’s personal life has been a feast for tabloids for 4 decades now. Whether it is his appearance and numerous plastic surgeries that have left his face falling apart or the accusations of molesting children at his ranch Neverland to his 2 failed marriages and the constant debates about how his children were conceived – no other person in the world can still create so much media frenzy or debate like Michael Jackson.
He has been charged with child molestation but he was freed of all charges while other suits were settled out of court. The latest rumor has it Jacko took about $23 million dollars in loans and is close to bankruptcy, while his Neverland ranch has just been saved from foreclosure when he finally paid the taxes for the property. The talks of a come back have been ripe for years, but for one reason or another they always fail through. Be as it may, to this day he still remains one of the most influential performer of our time.
