It has been a sad morning.

I found out two hours ago that Michael Jackson – aged 50 – legendary, revolutionary, incredible artist and inspiration has died.

watch from 3:30 onward – this is his first moonwalk.

MJ changed the world. He spread his message of self improvement with every second slamming pop chart-topper. He obviously struggled through his later years, but has left one of the most distinct imprints on the world. I personally grew up jumping to his pop, and I still pepper each of my playlists with several favorites.

See ya Michael, long live.
