It’s been 10 years to the day (June 25th) since the King of Pop has been gone. And I often wonder how he would feel about the current class of singers. I didn’t know MJ, but I can think of a handful of artists he would want to smack.

Michael Jackson did not hit every note in “Rock With You” for the self-proclaimed “King of RnB” to sing in 1 octave, and cry over the BET Awards.

What ever happened to being discreet?? While you trying to get girls to ‘wobble’ on it, MJ said to “Keep it in the Closet.” Keep your business to yourself.

Mike definitely taught us that it was okay to show emotion. He fake-cried on “She’s Out of My Life.” But Drake real-cries on every song he sings on! Man up.
