The Day The Universe Stood Still

let me first begin by saying how much my heart is broken. I was raised on the music that was Michael Jackson. He has had a profound influence on my life along with Jimi Hendrix, Prince, and so many other great artists in music. I along with many other devoted fans have always aspired to be like him and blasted his music in my house and danced around like i knew what I was doing lol but his music seems to have a strange power over people, from young children to grown adults.

His energy on stage was almost divine and so magnetic, it pulled you in with the every dance step he took and he looked as if he was glowing. I first came to know of him when I was 4 years old, watching the smooth criminal movie and from that moment on I was hooked! He has made some of the most entertaining music and music movies and has greatly influnced many young artists over the years and his music is the most saught after for sampling.

I have so much respect for this man and love him with all my heart as many do. I first found about his passing when i was at my friend Champagnes house and when she told me, my heart dropped and i was in shock. Reports were swirling around that he was dead but i refused to believe it until she confirmed it online from TMZ news. Then I began to cry and shake. Even now typing this i am still in shock and can't believe it. But to me he will always live on Forever...

Here was what some celebs had to say about the loss of the King of Pop:

Demi Moore: I am greatly saddened for the loss of both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Especially for their children!

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz: Tmz please be wrong. Everyone have hope.

According to reports I have read, singer Cassie Ventura (known to the public as just "Cassie") decided to shave half her hair off because she wanted to be more rock star -ish. If you ask me she didn't have to shave half her hair off to prove her rock and roll exterior but rather done as Rihanna did and cut it short and dyed it a really cool color, that sets herself apart from her peers, and dressed a bit different.In Rihanna's case it really worked for her and we as the public really get to see her for who she really is now, and it's great. With all this being said, I anticipate what her new alblum is going to sound like. Will it pick up where her "me and u" hit sigle left off, or will it take on more of a different tune?
