Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson passed away painfully in 2009, after an amazing career that changed the game in so many ways and earned him the title the ‘King of Pop’.

He undoubtedly influenced a whole swath of artists who came after him with his unique style and incredible talent.

One person who clearly modelled his career after Jackson is Chris Brown, who acknowledged that in a recent post on social media.

Posting a photo of one of his routines juxtaposed with Jackson’s, Brown wrote:

ART IMITATING LIFE. If there was no him, there would be no me.

Indeed. Chris Brown often looks like a mini Michael Jackson when performing and has never hidden his admiration for the legendary artist.
