Justin Bieber joins the world in commemorating The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, even as he is taking a day off on his My World Tour.
On his Twitter account, one of Justin’s most powerful media tool, the teen idol expresses his admiration for MJ by changing his Twitter background. It now contains a picture of Bieber wearing a shirt with MJ’s face and with the words ‘Legends Live Forever’ splashed in front.
Together with the picture, Justin Bieber also revealed to his fans that there was a song in his album that was written with Michael Jackson as inspiration. The song was titled ‘Runaway Love’ and he offered it once again in memory of MJ with a wish that the pop icon would rest in peace.
In addition, Justin Bieber is also participating in the 20/20 Michael Jackson special. The Canadian pop singer shared his wish that people would just stop talking nonsense about MJ and just remember the singer and dancer for his great talent. Speaking maturely as a true artist, Justin Bieber pleads to everyone to commemorate MJ for his contribution to the music industry. How Michael was a great entertainer and how he has influenced not only music but every person’s individual life.
Michael Jackson not only made what we now know today as pop music, but the huge popularity of his music forced MTV to do something they had never done before….play music videos by a black artist. He broke down the color barrier in music and his second album THRILLER became the biggest selling album of all time selling 110 million albums. A record that I guarantee you will never be broken again.
May you RIP MJ.
