Michael Jackson (29.08.1958 — 25.06.2009) — American singer.

Michael Joseph Jackson was a famous American singer, dancer, song writer, choreographer, philanthropist and an entrepreneur. He won 15 Grammy Awards and hundreds of other prizes during his life. Michael Jackson was born on the 29th of August, 1958, in the state of Indiana. He was the eighth of ten children of Joseph and Katherine Jackson. His father was a former boxer and a guitarist at the local R&B band. Michael was known to have many troubles with his father, who regularly whipped him and verbally abused. As a child Michael was afraid to sleep alone in his own room as he had nightmares.

When he was only five, he was already a member of a family music band “Jackson Five”. He soon got the place of a lead singer. But working with his father wasn’t easy. He had to go through numerous humiliations. Each time he did something wrong, his father would severely punish him. First time he spoke up about his childhood humiliations in 1993 during The Oprah Winfrey Show. When Michael was ten, “The Jackson Five” band signed a contract with Motown Records. It was the time when they recorded the following hits: “I want you back”, “I’ll be there”, etc. In the mid-1970s the popularity of the band began to fall, while Michael’s solo career began to prosper. In 1977, he made his debut in the musical “The Wiz”. It was then that he started the long-term cooperation with a renowned producer and composer Quincy Jones.

In 1979, Michael released his solo album “Off the Wall”, which topped all the UK and US charts. Moreover, the singer got his first Grammy Award for the song “Do not Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”. In 1982, he released the second album called “Thriller”, which brought him seven Grammy Awards. Seventy million copies of this album were sold worldwide. In spring of 1983, at the show of “Motown 25” for the first time he introduced his famous “moonwalk”, which became his signature dance walk. In 1987, the singer published his autobiography “Walking on the Moon”. In 1991, Jackson signed the largest contract with Sony Records and released his solo album “Dangerous”. He finally proved his status as the first star in the world of show business.

In 1993 the famous pop star was accused of sexual harassment by a thirteen-year-old boy. In December of the same year the singer was strip searched. One of his friends later said that Michael never recovered from this humiliation. He was always known for good attitude towards children, but this case caused irrecoverable damage to his reputation. One year later he married Elvis Presley’s daughter. Some saw it as an attempt to save his reputation, others found the fact that two great musical families united to be rather moving. In 2003, the singer released the album of his greatest hits called “Number Ones”. The great success was gained by “Thriller 25” released in 2008 to denote the 25th anniversary of the legendary album. The King of Pop accidentally died on June the 25th, 2009.

My Favourite Singer (Michael Jackson)

My favourite singer is Michael Jackson. I like his songs very much because they are full of energy and very melodic. I also like the way he dances.

There were nine children in Michael’s family. They lived in a small fourroom house. Later he lived in a house which has seventeen rooms downstairs and sixteen rooms upstaires. It stands in 2,700 acres of ground. Besides the house there are guest houses, a golf course, a swimming pool, tennis courts, stables, gardens, lakes, forests and a zoo.

A lot of strange stories are told about Jackson. It’s difficult to decide whether they are true or not. Michael never gave interviews and was rarely seen in public, except on stage. Certainly his behaviour may seem eccentric. In public he often wore a face mask to protect himself from germs, he slept inside an oxygen capsule, which he believed would help him to live longer. But his manager says that Jackson wasn’t eccentric. He was just shy. Michael sang in public for the first time when he was five. Since that time he had always been in the public eye. And since that time he had been working like a grown-up.

There were times when he came home from school and he only had time to put his books and get ready for the studio. He often sang until late at night, even if it was past his bedtime. There was a park across the street from the studio, and Michael looked at the kids playing games. And he just stared at them in wonder — he couldn’t imagine such freedom, such a carefree life.

He said about himself that in the crowd he was afraid, on stage he was safe. Off stage he felt happiest with animals and children. It’s not a secret that his favourite hero was Peter Pan.

Michael has been called «the child who never grew up», but I think he was a grown-up who was never allowed to be a child.

Whether he was crazy, childish, eccentric or just shy, he was no fool. He created a brilliantly successful image, he made a lot of money and spent it on the things he wanted. Who wouldn’t like to do the same?

Мой любимый певец (Майкл Джексон)

Мой любимый певец- Майкл Джексон. Я очень люблю его песни, потому что они полны энергии и очень мелодичные. Мне также очень нравится, как он танцует.

В семье Майкла было 9 детей. Они жили в маленьком домике. Потом он жил в доме, который имеет 17 комнат на нижнем этаже и 16 комнат наверху. Он находится на 2700 акрах земли. Кроме того, там есть гостевой дом, поле для гольфа, бассейн, теннисные корты, конюшни, сады, озера, леса и зоопарк.

Много странных историй рассказывают о Джексоне. Трудно решить, являются ли они правдивыми или нет. Майкл никогда не давал интервью и редко появлялся на публике, кроме как на сцене. Конечно, его поведение может показаться чудаковатым. На публике он часто носил маску, чтобы защититься от микробов.Он спал в кислородной капсуле, которая, как он считал, поможет ему жить дольше. Но его менеджер утверждает, что Джексон не был эксцентричным. Он просто стеснялся. Майкл спел на публике впервые, когда ему было пять. С тех пор он всегда был в центре общественного внимания. И с тех пор он работал как взрослый.

Были времена, когда он возвращался домой из школы, успевал только сложить свои книги и готовился к студии. Он часто пел до поздней ночи, даже если это было после времени сна. Через дорогу от студии был парк, и Майкл смотрел на детей во время игр. Он смотрел на них с удивлением- он не мог представить себе такой свободы, такой беззаботной жизни.

Он говорил о себе, что в толпе, он боялся, а на сцене он был в безопасности. Вне сцены он чувствовал себя счастливым с животными и детьми. Это не секрет, что его любимый герой- Питер Пэн.

Майкла называли «ребенком, который никогда не выростет, но я думаю, что он был взрослым, которому никогда не позволяли быть ребенком.

Был ли он сумашедшим, инфантильным, эксцентричным или просто застенчивым, он не был глупым. Он блестяще создал успешный образ, он заработал много денег и потратил их на то, что хотел. Кто не хотел бы делать то же самое?
