Not sure where to post this, so I post it in this thread.

In a recent song titled Ice Cream by Blackpink and Selena Gomez, there is a line "In the jeans like Billie, you be poppin' like a wheelie." This is an obvious reference to Billie Jean.

In the Japanese version on their track "Whistle", one of Lisa line is "Smooth criminal, I'm bad, untouchable."

South Korean singer Minzy (ex-2NE1), mentioned MJ again in a recent interviews:

Who are your biggest musical inspirations? Do you have any dream collaborations in mind?
The person who gives me the most musical inspiration is Michael Jackson. His music contains the universal meanings beyond the level of simply enjoying the music. Just like Michael Jackson, I want to become a musician that develops a direction and a philosophy of life.

Say K: You are an inspiration and a role model for a lot of people. Who inspires you and what keeps you on track?

Minzy: I’ve watched and listened to old school classic – Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, TLC, Missy Elliott, Michael Jackson. They’re legends and very important to me.

Miley has always been a MJ fan. I don't like Miley's over the top vulgar sexual behaviour, but I do like a lot of her music myself and have been a fan since the early Hannah Montana days.

Last year she released a song called D.R.E.A.M, where one of the lyrics is "Got the white that's sure to light the floor like in "Billie Jean." This song came out months after Leaving Neverland aired, so it seems as if she doesn't believe that bullshit, which I am grateful for.

I know I'm late on this one but I just noticed she has a MJ tattoo lol

I add Joe Pesci in. The time Michael died, he said nice things about him as a person and as a dad.

Add ET Canada’s reporter Carlos Bustamante. He reveals recently that he’s a fan. Well…I already knew that he’s a fan since he was the host of YTV’s The Zone at the time.

I think we need this as well. It seems we know all the people who are currently dragging Michael's name through the dirt, but let's put a list together of those who are coming to his defense about LN. Please add to the list with a name and short description of the person or post the posts or videos are them defending Michael. This will be very helpful for us at such a hopeless time.

After a rather hectic day, I came home to find a most exhilarating surprise on Twitter - quite possibly THE most timely ReTweet ever, courtesy of none other than...................that romantic fool of Jack Dorsey. Lately, he has become quite the revelation - in between his back & forth with House Republicans (which was also mighty, mighty interesting, mind y'all), his choice of memes and his overall attitudine, he's becoming a most welcome addition to it all, albeit partially expected 😄


viel-viel-dank-jack-S.jpg


The thread itself may actually be the coolest ever


There are soooo many hidden treasures in it all, it's actualy hard to keep track - from numbers and dates to names, from song titles to song lyrics, from the magic of Michael's beatboxing in the studio to the magic of his fingers on film, it was all incredibly exciting to (re)discover. I even learnt a new word - intrapolation 🤓

The musical connections made were awesome, but I gotta say - with utter and assumed subjectivity - Michael took people's grooves and sounds and made them so much cooler, through his sheer brilliance and magic. Or, as someone in the comments, phrased it ever so eloquently......when Mike sampled it......it was his 4eva 😁Yeah, even the comments were not just hilarious, but most propitious also 😸



This time around, it's realy worth sayin'..........thank you, jack. Thank you very much! 🙏

Apparently Maxwell will be performing "The Lady in My Life" on the Billboard Music Awards tomorrow night in honor of the 40th anniversary of Thriller.


What do people think of this? Also, I'll add, I have no idea who Maxwell is, or half of the people mentioned who will be performing otherwise 🤷‍♀️

Maxwell is a soul singer. Don't know much about him. Decent voice but too smooth for me.
