True, the man is extremely weird. But we all knew that - and plenty of other people are a banana or two over the bunch. It is also true that Jackson has an eccentric relationship with children, and not all of us would look upon him either as a model father or as the perfect host for our young sons' sleep-overs. But, again, plenty of other grown men have an interest in children that is at least as sinister as Jackson's, and probably more so.
No. The point about Michael Jackson is not that he is odd but that the man is a genius.
As a dancer, he ranks well up there with Fred Astaire and Rudolf Nureyev. As a singer, he has been dazzlingly brilliant since he first cleared his throat on stage when he was eight.
To put it at its lowest, Michael Jackson is an extremely important figure in the history of popular culture.
