‘I’m not like other guys’

Today would have been the 54th birthday of Michael Jackson. In order to celebrate his day of birth you should rethink twice when you call someone a ‘Monster’. ‘Monster’ could be an animal, a creature of abnormal form; one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character.
It wouldn’t be so hard to remember the time when black people in America were considered animals, white’s property (Dred Scott v. Sandford), non-citizens, and ‘aliens’ (like Hollywood’s famous movie).

In 1983 Michael Jackson redefined what a ‘Monster’ could do in the musical industry turning himself into the owner of the music business itself.

There’s no doubt there have been a couple of little ‘monsters’ out there (can you hear me GaGa?) and you’ve got to give credit where credit is due. But while I take a look about how people dress these days, the glasses they wear a couple of years ago, I can only imagine just one ‘monster’ these days changing the game as Michael Jackson used to do it. Even a famous country singer could introduce him as a reference of one of her songs: Kanye West.

‘Everybody know I'm a motherfucking monster’

Here’s the video when today’s everybody’s favorite ‘Monster’ tributes the King of Pop with some of his most famous images.

Today when I look at my dictionary the definition of ‘Monster‘ says: ‘genius, one of a kind, special, one who deviates the normal or acceptable behavior, a threatening force, one who is naturally skilled and highly successful’. ‘Let God decide’
