Michael Jackson had been one of the greatest entertainers of his time. Popular as King of Pop, he was a singer, a lyricist and a dancer. Jackson had a troubled childhood, as a Black American. He left his parents to come to stay in an apartment in New York, which was the house of gays, lesbians and the rejected lot in the society in general. However, Jackson rose to great heights through his music and dance. He married twice and some say that his two wives were responsible for his addiction to drugs.
