It is a great pity that Rika used this very valuable tool to foster unsubstantiated rumors. That he/she also used an opportunity to use this valuable and what would have been informative means of educating for a subtle attempt to implant a story which was proven false in a Court of Law. No program no matter how worthy will bring about good when there is prejudice involved and ignorance of the facts.

MICHAEL JACKSON

THE READING / TAPESCRIPT

Michael Joseph Jackson (born 1958) is truly a music legend. He
became a superstar at the age of eleven as a member of his family
band The Jackson 5. His solo career earned him the title "King of
Pop". His studio albums have all become classics. Jackson is equally
famous for his high energy and complicated dance techniques such
as the moonwalk.
Jackson dominated the music charts throughout the 1970s, 80s and
90s. His distinctive vocal style, rhythm and fashion were perfect for
the new music video age. MTV enthusiastically played his videos to
the world. His ‘Thriller’ video had all the excitement of a major
movie release. Jackson became a true icon of pop culture and
influenced dozens of today’s top stars.
Jackson’s personal life has created significant controversy and has
earned him a nickname he hates, ‘Wacko Jacko’. He has angered
many by having plastic surgery and lightening his skin to look
white. His reputation was badly damaged in several high-profile
child sexual abuse cases in 2003 and 2005. The courts cleared him
on both occasions.
His awards and records are proof of the phenomenal success he has
achieved. He won World Music Award's Best-Selling Pop Male Artist
of the Millennium, and was the American Music Award's Artist of the
Century. ‘Thriller’ remains the best selling album of all time. ‘Vanity
Fair’ magazine named him the "Most popular artist in the history of
show business".
