Michael Jackson lived his life on the world stage and, like so many other pop-culture idols, he experienced the extreme highs and lows that constant scrutiny brings.The influence of the legendary entertainer was never limited to his music.

He influenced the world of fashion with his sequined glove, his penny loafers, his red leather jacket, his military embellishments.

His dance moves and videos seemed like the turning point to the brave new world of visual pop music.But like a sweeping novel, his life was divided into chapters and images that sometimes seemed to clash.

There was the child singer who lit up the Jackson 5 like a rocket with his sheer brilliance.There was the handsome young man who dazzled audiences with his soft voice, his stunning moonwalk and his luminous string of hits.

And there were the sad, troubling later pages, when the focus turned to the plastic surgeries that transformed his face, the tabloid coverage of eccentric habits, and the accusations of child molestation that culminated in the 2003 trial where he was ultimately acquitted of all charges.Much like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, Jackson is now one of those landmark entertainers who never grew old enough to give his contemporaries a chance to sit back and gain perspective in real time on the meaning of his life.Rather, his stint as an icon crowded the mind�s eye with a kaleidoscope of images � the precocious kid, the Super Bowl halftime sensation, the man talking about his troubled childhood to Oprah Winfrey, the husband sharing an awkward public kiss with his wife Lisa Marie Presley, and the strange, distant figure dangling his child from a hotel balcony.And there�s one more image � the mysterious person so often photographed venturing warily outside while wearing a mask of some sort.That mask may wind up being the symbol of the enigma that was Jackson.

Few entertainers have maintained a higher profile over the last 40 years.

But, ultimately, the fans and critics who�ve spent so much of their lives watching him are left to wonder what the King of Pop was really like and which parts of his long, strange reign were truth or fiction.Contact JULIE HINDS : 313-222-6427 or [email protected]
