8 Reasons Why Michael Jackson is Still King In 2020
Start writing a post

Taking it back many many moons, I remember being about two years old, waking up in the middle of the night and opening my door to complete darkness. In a second, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video started to play.

When the switch happened, where they're in the graveyard and you hear the deep voice, I screamed. I ran and found my grandma on the couch and jumped into her arms. After she calmed me down, she replayed the VHS that she had recorded it on and let me watch.

That was the start of my obsession with Michael Jackson.

I remember where I was and what I was doing when we got the word Michael had passed. Not a day has passed since where you don't hear about him in the media, someway, somehow. No matter what, Michael will always be the king of pop, and nobody can take that from him

1. Michael Jackson has the best music... no discussion.


I feel like it's a no-brainer. Michael Jackson has the best music. He has a little bit for everyone. The soul, the feel, the emotion he shows. His music is one of a kind.

2. He could act without really acting.

HE COULD ACT! If you haven't seen "The Wiz," please do ASAP. Michael played a character but somehow still showed us himself.

3. His style is one for the books.


Michael Jackson's styles are one that will be copied until the end of time. Artists like Justin Bieber and Chris Brown even have music that follow Michael's style.

4. Perfectionist at its best.


Jackson was a perfectionist. He would record a song, and if it didn't fit his image, he wouldn't use it, which is why he has many unreleased songs. He was very precise and had the whole practice makes perfect down to a T when he would have tour rehearsals.

5. He is humble and kind.


Despite his fame, he had a heart full of gold. He loved people and wanted the best for everyone. All that knew him spoke nothing but great things about him.

6. "Thriller"...enough said


"Thriller" is just an iconic album.

7. He's still loved even after his death.


Even though he is gone, his spirit is still very alive.

8. Everyone sees him as the king.


That's all.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion
