MICHAEL JACKSON

MICHAEL JACKSON

 

A few of the better MJ articles:

Hua Hsu: “MJ R.I.P.”

Michael Kinsley: “Prisoner of Commerce” (From way back in 1984.)

Ta-Nehisi Coates: “Remembering the Time”

al-Shourouk (Egypt): مدير أعمال سابق لمايكل جاكسون : الأطباء دمروا حياته

Andrew O’Hagan: “Blame it on the Boogie” (Contains details on MJ’s sojourn in Bahrain, including this choice nugget: “According to the Militant Islam Monitor, [MJ] is planning to build a new mosque in Manama.”)

Artist Unknown: “Indian Thriller” (Awesome video that proves Hsu’s thesis above about being a truly global icon.

Special thanks to TBE Michael Jackson correspondent Rebecca, who brought most of these links to TBE’s attention.
