Yes, he was a legend. I won't debate that. But his light burnt out YEARS AGO... and since then he has done nothing but become a total freak. The skin bleaching-whatever he's done. The accusations of little boys.
He became nothing more than a sideshow attraction. Fitting I suppose that his "ranch" was a theme park of some sort... but also fitting that it was shut down. His time passed a long time ago. The music from back then is still pretty good (who doesn't like to hear Thriller every now and then?) but the person he became lately was NOT the same person who created all of that hype back in the day.
He's gone. Let's just leave him at some sort of peace and quit with the 50 fucking news stories about it every day.
