Real Talk, was the death of Michael Jackson the biggest worldwide mourning for a musician? Has anyone come close? Elvis? Lennon?
>>
Lennon, because he was murdered in cold blood and not a child molestor.
>>
Cant beat MJ
>>
McCartney will top MJ
>>

MJ's death literally broke the internet.
>>
>>61659841
Nah, MJ was big for everyone. Mainly just white people like Paul McCartney.
>>
>>61659883
Black people definitely care more about MJ than white people.
>>
I legit didn't care about MJ. But I didn't grow up with him and kinda thought his music was boring.

I know that isn't true -- I know he contributed to music significantly. Still don't / didn't like him.

(I also don't believe he molested kids. Only that he was probably super fucked up from his childhood and wanted to literally never grow up.)

>>61659480
but he was a wife beater
i think
who cares its the music that matters anyways

well.. it wasn't michael who was important to music, it was quincy jones who made most of the music michael was known for, and the funk brothers is who made the music that made the jackson 5 important.

and they released all the information from neverland ranch, there was child porn all over.

does that mean he touched kids? no, but it makes it hard not to look in that direction

So you can continue to legit not care about him
>>
I think MJ will probably be the most widely mourned death because of the fact that he was only 50 and about to do a final tour, was so incredibly popular globally, and was a pop musician in a time that wasn't so fragmented in terms of musical listening.

Every normal person through the 80s-90s listened to him.

>Every normal person through the 80s-90s listened to him.
this fucking statement
>>
>>61660599
He had that Super Bowl Halftime, Pepsi peddling, MTV, Presley marriage, Billboard kinda radio play.

Nigga was popular among the normals.
>>
>>61660880
oh you meant normal as in normalfag? they're not really interchangeable terms, it's like saying every normal person listened to coldplay in the 00s
>>
>>61661157
I really tried avoiding the term normie, but yeah normalfag person.

You're right about them not being interchangeable.
>>
I live in Memphis, and see the annual pilgrimages to Graceland for the anniversary of Elvis's death. He died before most of us were born, so we can't appreciate how big the reaction was. I don't think MJ even compares.
>>
>>61660498
>implying all the #1 hits Quincy Jones had post Michael Jackson
>>
Michael reached more people worldwide.

We'll see this when Kanye or Timberlake goes desu.
>>
>>61661383
MJ's estate makes way more money than Elvis's. Also the Neverland ranch belongs to someone else so it's not as if there's a place to go except for their original house.
>>
>>61659854
>broke the internet
You mean google. Google =/= Internet
>>
>>61659372
Lennon was probably bigger but MJ had the crazy death plus the insane media circus that followed it with the doctor and the lawsuits and all sorts of other shit. Just like his life his death became a fucking dragged out sideshow too.

I know in my house I heard nothing but MJ for a week straight, my parents were hit hard by that shit.

Sites across the net were falling like dominoes from the amount of traffic

Fuck MJ! His death over shadowed Les Paul! Without Les Paul, and his innovations, MJ wouldn't be able to do at least 90% of the stuff he did, and yet Les Paul's death is a mere footnote while plebs still yammer on about MJ! Again, I say, fuck MJ!
