Though he was accused of child sexual abuse back in 1993, the criminal investigation was closed due to lack of evidence and Jackson was not charged. Michael is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sale of over 750 million units worldwide.

The Bad World Tour began on September 12, 1987, and finished on January 14, 1989.[57] In Japan alone, the tour had 14 sellouts and drew 570,000 people, nearly tripling the previous record of 200,000 in a single tour.[58] Jackson broke a Guinness World Record when 504,000 people attended seven sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium.

Not just the R&B stars - check out the 'wholesome' American Apple Pie stars like Justin Timberlake and even Britney Spears. They all emulate the gloved one - to this day. As stated earlier - it is what it is.

What is octomom's talent? Tricking the system? She seems more like Jackson's accuser if we're going to go there.

You're comment is meaningless: it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Michael Jackson. If you must post about the twisted mother, whose name is Nadya Suleman, mother of 14 children...Sorry but I don't see the connection....???????

Saying that Nadya Suleman is popular is akin to saying John Wayne Gacy is popular. Just because the media is having a feeding frenzy over this crazy lady doesn't make her popular - it makes her infamous.

Jackson may be considered "infamous" here in the states, but everywhere else in the world, he's just plain "famous" - they actually appreciate his talents as a performer.

Nadya's performance consists of spreading her legs and having a doctor insert embryos. Not exactly what I would consider on par with Jackson's accomplishments listed in an earlier thread.
