AC January 01, 2010 by Ron Hart

Is This the Latest and Most Meaningful Sign that People Are Re-thinking the Life of the King of Pop?

The world lost one of its most famous and accomplished entertainers, Michael Jackson in 2009. As the New Year arrives, it's been announced that the United States national film archives will add Jackson's landmark Thriller video to its collection; this will be the first music video included in the archives.

Released in 1982, both the Thriller video and the album was a watershed moment in American pop culture. While already famous for his work in the Jackson five and previous solo albums, Jackson's worldwide fame reached almost inconceivable heights as Thriller presented both a sound and visual display that was like nothing before. He was able to adroitly fuse r&b, rock, dance and even a hint of jazz without diluting any of them. Likewise, his sense of style and showmanship transcended the music world and gave Jackson a worldwide influence not seen before or since. While his popularity in the United States may have 'only' rivaled that of the Beatles from a generation before, no other artist had capture populations in every corner of the world the way Jackson did.

Michael Jackson, however, was an unusual man. And while his unique abilities, talents and perspectives unquestionably led to his fame and success, they also gave fodder to his critics, who grew in number dramatically in his later life.

Before his death in 2009, Jackson had been accused twice, once in the 1990's and again in the 2000's, of sexual involvement with children. Despite the fact that Jackson was never found guilty of anything in a a court of law, the allegations proved damaging to his image and to his mainstream appeal. Jackson sadly lost much of his fan support, though he always maintained a loyal cadre of believers in the man, his music, and his stated messages of love and peace.

To the world at large, however, after his death, there seems to be a growing sense that perhaps the man was treated unfairly in life. One of his accusers, Jordan Chandler, has fully admitted that the charges he levied on Jackson were fabricated.

Yes... Michael has indeed been treated extremely unfairly throughout his life... even in death, you can still hear horrible stuff about him... These ppl without an ounce of conscience, will never stop at tearing him down. They just love to put Michael on a pedestal & then pull him right down & watch him break into a million pieces, with glee on their sad, disgusting faces. Evil or Very Mad

its human nature for people to only appreciate someone when they're gone for good... oh well at least more people are aware of his incredible talent and his genuine innocence than to be just another forgotten piece of untold history. it would've been better if his thriller video was included to the US national film archive when he was still alive though.
