They print my message in the Saturday Sun; I had to tell them I ain't second to none

I discovered Michael Jackson when I was six, just before the release of Thriller. The night the album was released, my dad took me to my first midnight release at a record shop, because I'd been saving my allowance for that LP for a month. I think I listened to that record at least three times a day for about eight months. He was my second-ever crush. And he just seemed to keep getting better, for years and years. He was truly an artist, the likes of which we'll never see again.

Yeah, I think the whole "King of Pop" label didn't do him justice, because people don't recognise pop music as an art form. And really, Black or White isn't exactly pop in the sense of being as accessible to the masses as possible, because a lot of the metaphor and symbolism and things went right over people's heads. I know it did with me, anyway.
