Michael Jackson – A That Grape Juice Tribute

Michael Jackson Tribute

Today marks one year since the passing onto eternity of the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Despite 365 long days having passed, the reality that Michael is no longer with us is still hard to fathom. Indeed, during his life, Michael enjoyed an unparallel level of super-stardom, leading many to class him as ‘other worldly’, a fictional character of sorts – who doesn’t die. Unfortunately, the reality of his mortality coldly hit the world on June 25th 2009.

However, today shouldn’t be one for mourning. Rather, the life of this incredible performer, philanthropist, and all-round legend should be celebrated. Cliché-sounding perhaps; yet, in the 50 years Michael spent on this earth, he shared a gift, a talent, which many of us will never see topped in our lifetime. To have experienced such history, I am eternally thankful for.

A lifelong fan, Michael’s passing hit me hard. As a late 80’s baby, Michael Jackson came to represent my childhood (from dancing around to his music at ANY and EVERY opportunity to watching ‘Thriller’ only to run away in a delightful fright when he turned into the monster “go away!”). In later years, I came to appreciate his artistry, as well as the depth and breadth of his message. Indeed, my love for Michael’s music birthed my love for music more generally – hence the eventual creation of this very site. His death (made all the more ‘real’ by the fact I was due to see him – front row centre – at his ‘This Is It’ show), therefore, left me feeling as if a significant part of my childhood died when he did.

Yet with time, comes fresh perspectives. While Michael may physically be no longer with us, he is still very much alive – as are the music and memories he left us with. Put simply, greatness is immortal. Michael Joseph Jackson is immortal.

Therefore, on this the one year anniversary of his passing, That Grape Juice salutes the undisputed King of Pop, King of Dance…King of Music – Michael Jackson.

Long live the King!

Tidbits

A major supporter of Michael’s later work, I feel too much of it went criminally underrated. The following are a couple of my favourites of his more recent material:

We’ve Had Enough

Unbreakable

    Michael’s death hit me hard. I am also an 80s baby and I remember watching his Superbowl performance and video premieres for Remember The Time and Black or White LIVE when they aired. My favorite Michael Jackson’s video and performance is Man In the Mirror. When he did the combination of The Way You Make Me Feel/Man In The Mirrori at the 1988 Grammys, I was speechless. I still remembering the first time I saw this performance at age 13 when VH1 was doing some kind of Grammy Special. He truly was one of kind. No performer will ever match this man’s artistry and talent as an entertainer and musician.

  18. Mensah June 25, 2010

    omg Michael Jackson is dead? since when?

  19. Spunkypoop June 25, 2010

    Dear Michael,

    You inspired me since I was 6 yrs. old. You was the first music artist I liked and mimic’d as a kid. I wanted to be just like you. I used to sing and dance for my family members and friends from age 6 to like 12. Sometimes I got money for it lol. Sometimes I just did it because I knew all your dance steps. lol. I always felt like you was the only artist that related to me, through your music. I can sit here and talk about you all day long. I will keep it short. I just want to say it seemed like yesterday I was in LA in front of your door yelling your name out hoping to get a chance to say hi and how much you inspired me. But you was in the house not feeling well. Then weeks later you was on the news in times square, and my world just stopped for a minute. You are truely the BEST and I love and respect you and I know your legacy will live on through your sister JANET, who I adore as well and think of you everytime I see or hear her. Your more than legacy Your a Movement. I love you, and thank you. M.J.

    -your stan.

  20. UGh June 25, 2010

    @ Sam i feel the exact way. Micheal made me love music and when he passed a part of my childhood died. Thanks for the post. I got emotional reading it.

    I will never forget you MJ and i will love you until eternity. ♥♥♥

  21. Vox June 25, 2010

    Where’s your FARRAH FAWCETT tribute? Freaking racists….

  22. Ashley June 25, 2010

    there will never be another like MJ… i love and miss him.. RIP

  23. MJ – The greatest ever June 25, 2010

    This video always makes me laugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGuiE-NcAno – It perfectly encapsulates the ridiculous timelessness of Michael’s music. Some little kid in a car seat is spontaneously getting down to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” on the radio and getting on rancid when the music is changed to anything other than Michael Jackson…

    This is exactly how it was for me too. Having been born in 1989 and missing out on the height of “Thriller” I still immediately on first listening fell hard in love for the songs of that album and was fascinated by the man himself. Michael Jackson is the only artist whose music which was released from before I was born is rocked on my iPod and still sounds as fresh and as modern, and BETTER, than pretty much all the music out today.

    From ages 2 to 102, this man’s gift was known and respected, all over the world.

  24. Yuan June 25, 2010

    such a beautiful article, thanks!

    Can’t believe one year has passed. Michael, I love you, from the bottom of my heart.

  25. ~TeAM WeeZY~ June 25, 2010

    AW! I sooooo miss MJ! I LOVE him to pieces! <3

    I cried like a baby when he died! It was crazy because I had never cried that much before. Damn, I really loved/love this guy! MAN! I get so emotional that It actually pisses me off!

    Michael Jackson the KING of MUSIC!

    All hail the KING!

    ***TEARS****

    Michael Jackson FOREVER and a day! 🙁

  30. Ghetto Fab June 25, 2010

    Never have I felt so strongly about an artist in my life. Michael Jackson will forever be known as the King! This day marks the day that Pop music DIED! There will never be another one like him. He was a true innovator. The biggest pop star the world has and will ever known. His videos , dance moves, and songs will forever live as ICONIC! RIP MJ I love you!

    Long Live The King!

  31. Ghetto Fab June 25, 2010

    You youngins want to know the definition of “Epic” “Iconic” “Legend” and “inspiration.” look no further. This man’s face is printed right next to those words in the dictionary.

    The one time this comment really means something:

    YOUR F****** FAVORITES COULD NEEEEEEEEEEEVVVEEEEEEEEEERRRR!! NOT EVEN IF THEY LIVED 2 LIFETIMES!

  32. Rob June 25, 2010

    No, no, no. I’m not going to mourn a serial child m*******.

    We all know he hurt those children. We all stopped supporting him because of it. We all watched him become a drug addicted freak. We all turned our backs on him.

    Then when he died, most of us pretended none of that happened. We started calling him the King of Pop again. We erased his crimes.

    Not me. Ever.

  33. Cary June 25, 2010

    For real, these songs SUCK. His recording career didn’t end because of the child molestation allegations. IT ENDED BECAUSE HE WAS NO LONGER ABLE TO CREATE GOOD SONGS.

  34. Lili June 25, 2010

    Im doing my best to stay strong today,Michael.
    I love you from the bottom of my heart.

    R.I.P (Return If Possible)

  35. Lili June 25, 2010

    Rob and Cary,ill try to be polite.

    Now is not the time or place for that kind of talk.
    Please spread your negative opinions to a group of people who care,not a group of people who are currently mourning.
    Today is hard enough for us,we dont need anyone making it worse.

  49. MJfan June 25, 2010

    Mj was a negro. And t his is a word that fits him. The word negro , has its roots from the word negus, which means king. 2 African kings proudly used the term to describe themselves, and in the ancient world, when Africans ruled, negus, a roman term was given to Africans, because Africans were held in high esteem. So, MJ was a true negus(king). His talent and charity has already been demonstrated by his legions of fans, we don’t need to continue to lists, because we know who the King was.

    But to the people who continue to slander MJ name, please research and look at FBI, police records, court trial documentations, Alphondite Jones book, and you will know that there has never been any valid reason to say that MJ was a molestor. So, please gets your facts straight, before jumping on the bandwagon of people who destroyed this man’s character. I’ve read the reports, and testimony and the backstory of the 93 accusations and MJ was set up, so know what you are talking about. Research.

  50. Candy Bling June 25, 2010

    One year already, only seems like yesterday when we lost the greatest entertainer to EVER walk this Earth.

    I’ve been listening to his music all day and remembering as the legend that he is. He lives on forever.

  51. Amar June 25, 2010

    i can remember this very well, i got my a level reaults and at night i went out with my family and on way home at like half 10at night i turned on radio and they said mj is in hospital so we rushed home to find out he had died

  52. LUV-LEE June 25, 2010

    @ ROB

    F*** OFF

  53. royalkev June 25, 2010

    @ Vox, you could have picked a better time to make this mention of Farrah Fawcett. I’m not saying that her life was any less signifant than MJ’s. This post was specifically made to honor him and pay respects to him. Your being direspectful and if you want to do something for Farrah take it upon yourself to look online to be apart of (or create)smething designed just for that. For some reason I doubt that you have a intrest in doing that.
    @ Rob – To you MJ is a m*******,to others he’s a man that has unjustifiably carried the burdens of being a target. After 17 years of investigations by the FBI, there has been nothing incriminating found out. The case of the boy that was allegedly molested has now loss it’s validity. The child, whose now an adult confessed to having his father ( against his will) put him up to that. We can’t be the judge of this and if anything a man is innocent until proven guilty. You want to ignore the truth as much as you want to believe the lies. To each their own. Again, this is a dedication to MJ, your out of line and your words here are inappropriate.
    @Carry, you may not like the songs that are featured on this site today, but MJ certainly was banned and discriminated against while in his prime(this is a similar situation to what Janet has been facing). If he was given a fair shake, History through Invincible would have fared even better. Again, be respectful and keep your negative commentation to yourself!

  54. LUV-LEE June 25, 2010

    R.I.P. MICHAEL JACKSON!!! :'(

  55. S*** June 25, 2010

    Is it the man’s birthday or something??, why is he still being shoved down B****** throats?? He wasnt praised half this much B4 he died. I actually like others more Tu Pac, Aliyah, Selena- MJ finished his legacy, these PPL didnt get a chance to. Let me tell yall something, MUSIC DOES NOT START & END WITH Michael Jackson, well It kinda started with him in a sense but best belive quality Music will still go on long after his death. I dont care about his success, I only respect his Musician ship & his influence most of all (his humanitarianism is a different matter). Im bored out of my mind watching his tired ass videos, with the same spins & turns & same vocals. A lot of his stuff is over rated. Lay off the Kool-Aid & wake up to reality. Hold on now, Dont start trying to sell this mans s*** for gold just yet.

  56. S*** June 25, 2010

    But anyway. R.I.P MJ. He was one of thea very best.

    If only PPL would let him REST IN PEACE.

  57. Last Boy on Earth June 25, 2010

    I just cant handle the fact that even on a tribute thread there is someone talking about other artist sales, it is disrespectful.
    anyway, we love you Michael, forever

  58. MJfan June 26, 2010

    Aaliyah was allright, but let’s be honest, she was no Superstar in the making. People are giving her too much credit. And for the record, MJ was a legend before he went solo. At the ripe age of 17 he became a living legend. His art and music was and is still relevant because what he did was groundbreaking. You must be young, you would know that the reason why people loved MJ music videos, was because they were creative, different, imaginative, thought provoking. The reason why people talk about his art because he talked about the human condition, the plight of the environment. He sang songs that made people take notice of causes. You want people to talk about Tupac, Selena, Aaliyah, tell me how was their music ground -breaking, ok, their art was cut short because of their deaths, but in reality, Tupac, sure he talked about positive things, and was talented, but on the flip side of that, he was a gangsta rapper, who also spoke about violence, and let’s not forget that each time , he went to jail, it was because of allegations of r***. Tupac was convicted, MJ was not. Sure he has that arts center in North Carolina, but hey, his mother created that and set that into motion. Maybe while he was alive, instead of fighting with his fans with Suge Knight, he should have been doing that himself. And Aaliyah, her music could have been more , but it wasn’t, because the girl neither had the voice or the dance moves to move up on the entertainment sprectum. The one reason why people remember her and want to paint her in a could be legend, is because sadly she died a horrible death. But, don’t give credit where credit isn’t earned. I know this generation is accustomed to mediocrity and sub par garbage that is played on the radio, forced consumption of the masses. but that still doesn’t equate to genius. I’m not a hater, I just want people to realize that MJ was the real deal. And as far as the dance moves, ok, MJ in later years did moves that his fans wanted to see, and I guess you didn’t watch the Invisible video, those were new moves, and his historic lean in 1987 Smooth Criminal is still groundbreaking because noone tries to do them. Just because he did the same moves that the fans wanted to see, doesn’t mean that he couldn’t wipe the floor with Neyo, JT, Usher, artists you so want to get the accolades. When they start putting in the work like MJ, and have his talent, and write more about posistivity, than maybe in some ant’s dream, would they become the King of Pop. Give Respect, you don’t like MJ, but please know what you are talking about. MJ died, the world stopped. When Aaliyah died, the only people that cared was the urban audience, and that’s a sad fact.

  59. DIVAZZ June 26, 2010

    @STAY MAD ARE U UPSET BECAUSE RIHANNA IS NO LONGER THE REIGNING QUEEN OF THIS BLOG???? DAMN I MEAN THIS AIN’T ABOUT B****! ARE U BLIND?? GET OFF!! K THIS IS ABOUT HONORING MICHAEL JACKSON’S LIFE AND LEGACY NOT ABOUT WHO SAID WHAT ABOUT RIRI K!!! SO !!!!!!!!!BEAT IT!!!!!!! GO TALK ABOUT RIRI ON HER WEBSITE!!!!! THAT’S WHERE U SHOULD HAVE A FIELD DAY AT!!!!!!!! {{{{MJ 4EVER}}}}}

  60. MJfan June 26, 2010

    BTW: his fans won’t let him rest in peace because white folks won’t let Elvis rest in peace. MJ as a black man should be given the accolades he deserves. we should make sure that the world realizes and respect the fact that a poor little black boy from Gary, Idiana, became the greatest entertainer in the world, because if we let this go, the white historians, music industry will wipe any existence of his accomplishments. They have done this in the past, and continue to do so. That is why.

  61. DIVAZZ June 26, 2010

    @S*** SO WHAT THOSE PEOPLE WEREN’T HALF AS BIG AS MICHAEL WAS SO WHAT DO U EXPECT?????? MICHAEL WAS A GLOBAL SUPER-MEGA STAR!!!!! THEY WERE NOT!! DEAL WITH IT NO ONE REALLY CARES FOR THOSE ARTISTS!!!! K!

  62. Candy Bling June 26, 2010

    @ DUMB S*** If you’re ” bored out of my mind watching his tired ass videos, with the same spins & turns & same vocals” stop watching the vids then. It’s common sense really.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    Selena, Aaliyah, and Tupac are barely mentioned in the mainstream if at all so #BIGFUCKINGFAIL Plus Tupac talked about smoking weed & being from the gutter. Selena & Aaliyah made forgettable music. Stop taking their s*** & turning it into gold.
    S***, HOW IS IT BEING FLUSHED DOWN A TOILET EVERYDAY. I SUSPECT YOU ARE A TWELVE YR OLD WHO WAS MOLESTED TO THROW SUCH SHADE AT A LEGEND. WE ALL KNOW YOU WORSHIP BEYLACEFRONT WHO WOULDN’T HAVE A CAREER WITHOUT MJ. DON’T YOU GET TIRED OF WATCHIN BEYUCKY POP HER C****** IN “B******” FACES EVERY 5 MINUTES. PROBABLY NOT.

    LMAOOOO You must be schizo. How do you talk all that s*** about MJ & then say “But anyway. R.I.P MJ. He was one of thea very best.If only PPL would let him REST IN PEACE.”
    F****** HYPOCRITE. MJ DEALT WITH ASSHOLES LIKE YOU HIS ENTIRE LIFE. JEALOUSY IS UGLY B****. Besides, you have Lady Gaga in your avatar & she WORSHIPED MJ.
    Let me guess, you’re some black ignorant ninja who puts down a legend who was born a black man and made music that appealed to people cross-racially, ethnically, nationally, generationally, and religiously to prop up 3 MEDIOCRE artists who haven’t done nearly as much. I’ll pray for you.

    No, no, no. I’m not going to mourn a serial child m*******.

    We all know he hurt those children. We all stopped supporting him because of it. We all watched him become a drug addicted freak. We all turned our backs on him.

    Then when he died, most of us pretended none of that happened. We started calling him the King of Pop again. We erased his crimes.

    Not me. Ever.

    Rob “we” or “us” didn’t know s***. YOU assume he was guilty because YOU are a media brainwashed c***. Typical. If you have proof of molestation, take it to the D.A.. Either put up or SHUT THE F*** UP. It’s very simple. Clearly “we” all DIDN’T turn our backs on him since he sold out 50 shows in London in RECORD TIME. Amerikkkans turned their back on Michael. It’s their loss, not his. You clearly care enough about MJ to comment on his death. Remember, it’s a thin line between LOVE and hate.

    P.S. No one will mourn your death but your sorry ass family (but then, maybe not)

    That goes for “LIKECAESAR” too !!!!!!!!

    R.I.P. MJ…………… THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER POP ICON

  71. CHERIE June 26, 2010

    TO ALL MJ HATERS: IF YOU TRULY “HATE” SOMEONE, YOU DON’T READ STORIES ABOUT THEM, OBSESS OVER THEM, LEAVE COMMENTS ABOUT THEM, WATCH THEIR VIDEOS ONLINE, OR DO ANYTHING RELATED TO THEM. THERFORE MJ HATERS LOVE MJ MORE THAN THE FANS DO. KEEP HATING. YOU JUST SHOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON & OBSESS OVER HIM. IT’S OKAY, LET IT OUT. EITHER THAT OR SEEK THERAPY. REMEMBER, MICHAEL DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOU & NEITHER DO HIS FAMILY MEMBERS /FANS SO YOUR HATRED IS POINTLESS. MJ IS FOREVER ETCHED IN THE MUSIC HISTORY BOOKS. WHAT THE F*** HAVE YOU DONE WITH YOUR LIFE???????????

    A Beyonce stan saying Michael Jackson is overrated? Ok, I finally heard EVERYTHING in this life lmao

    If people can forgive R. Kelly and Roman Polanski, two proven p*********, they can forgive MJ. HYPOCRISY is a disease.

  74. F*** OFF ROB June 26, 2010

    @ROB,

    If you hate MJ, you should also hate Elvis (f***** Priscilla when she was 14, he was 25), Roman Polanski (r**** & sodomized a 15 year old girl), Woody Allen (had s** with his underaged adopted daughter & married her), R. Kelly (had s** with an underage girl & pissed on her) the list goes on. Don’t be a hypocrite. It makes you sound pathetic.

  75. F*** OFF CARY June 26, 2010

    @CARY

    Clearly the ranting of a shallow brainless fly by night who just discovered MJ and probably believes his only iconic album was Thriller & can’t name 5 MJ songs even if paid to do it.

  76. F*** OFF LIKECAESAR June 26, 2010

    I know LIKECAESAR is gonna show up on this post and ride MJ’s d*** again like the LOV I mean HATER “it” is *sips tea*

  88. Secret Voice June 26, 2010

    People don’t even waste your time arguring with ignant a** foolz that want to compare their favorites peons careers to Michael Jackson.The very fact they act like their peons compare to MJ should tell you these mofos don’t know shyt about music!

    My Grandparents know who MJ was because they are like 63/64 more or less Jackie and Rebbie’s age.My parents are in their 40’s and I’m 20 so he spanded generations.Michael started at a time of segregation.He started in a time of showmanship,there was no damn gimmicks that got pass Motown or the other historic labels like Stax or TSOP.I know all this stuff because my Grands love MUSIC HISTORY and they passed it on to my father! Even though I ‘m only 20,I love me some old music because that stuff sounds good.I can’t stand to hear a gimmick because I know what good music sound like and I know what good music can do for people.

    The thing I loved about Michael Jackson was that he was a real pro that took pride in his art!

  89. TheYoungLion June 26, 2010

    Prince shits on MJ and he’s still alive 😀

  90. THEYOUNGLION EATS PRINCE’S S*** June 26, 2010

    @THEYOUNGLION

    You Prince fans are so INSECURE just like your idol. Michael is still the King of Pop, Madonna is the Queen of Pop & what is Prince again???????????

  91. THEYOUNGLION EATS PRINCE’S S*** June 26, 2010

    @THEYOUNGLION

    You Prince fans are so INSECURE just like your idol LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Michael is still the King of Pop (DEAD or alive) Madonna is still the Queen of Pop & what is Prince again??????????????????

  92. S*** June 26, 2010

    ^^ OK, Ill let MJ have & keep that title but seriously Madonna SUCKS, shes even worse than gaga & yall know how much I cant stand Gaga. Queen of Pop should go to someone else like Britney, Beyonce, Janet or anyone else.

  93. 7774 June 26, 2010

    @THEYOUNGLION

    I do believe that this post is about MJ NOT Prince 🙂 but thanks for trying to keep “the artist” with no throne relevant (but then again, not really)

    P.S. keep disrespecting the dead. your sorry ass is gonna die some day too except no one will cry.

  94. 7774 June 26, 2010

    @S***

    Madonna just got lucky since she marketed herself well (through re-invention) and took the sexuality crap to a whole new level
