Du er her : Forside | Michael Jackson Tekster | Ben Tekst
Born the seventh in a family of nine children in Gary, Indiana, Jackson was launched into show business when his father, a steel-mill worker by trade, assembled a singing group called the Jackson Five with 5-year-old Michael and his four older brothers. Initially, Joseph included Michael in the lineup as a novelty, but it became immediately obvious that his wee son had prodigious musical abilities: his voice possessed a maturity belied by his young years, and his crowd-charming charisma superseded that of most seasoned entertainers. Buoyed by the young prodigy's talents, the Jackson Five moved quickly from local talent contests to a recording contract with Motown. The group generated six top-five singles between 1969 and 1971 — including "I Want You Back" and "ABC" — and would remain a hit-making machine throughout the '70s. As if the pressure of fronting a chart-topping band weren't enough for the adolescent, Jackson was soon tapped by Motown to do solo recordings.

The label was assured it had a superstar in the making, when, in 1971, Jackson's first on-his-own single, "I'll Be There," hit No. 4 on the charts. In addition to his work with his brothers, Jackson recorded more hit solo singles — including "Rockin' Robin" and "Ben" — and solo albums for Motown; in 1976, he and the Jackson Five signed with Epic. During the late '70s, Jackson made a brief foray into film, starring opposite Diana Ross in The Wiz (1978), an African-American update of The Wizard of Oz. The project was unexceptional, save for the fact that it introduced Jackson to legendary producer Quincy Jones, who arranged and conducted the film's score. Jones and Jackson collaborated on the singer's next solo project, Off the Wall (1979), an album that transformed the child star into an adult superstar.

Propelled by such No. 1 hits as "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "Rock With You," the disc sold ten million copies and was barraged with critical praise for its barrier-busting blend of soul and rock and its good-time boogie vibe. (Rolling Stone's notoriously hard-to-please critic, David Marsh, proclaimed Off the Wall "a masterpiece of modern record making.") It seemed impossible that the ever-blossoming artist could top himself, but that's exactly what he did with the 1982 release of a little record he called Thriller. As history notes, the Jones-produced Thriller sold upwards of 40 million copies (more than any album before or since) and received critical kudos and an unprecedented eight Grammy awards.

The album charted a record six top-ten singles, beginning in November 1982 with the Paul McCartney duet, "The Girl Is Mine," and ending a whopping 16 months later with the title track. Jackson sustained Thriller's momentum with the help of music videos, which were gaining rominence thanks to the newborn MTV network. Jackson's brilliant song-and-dance videos for "Billie Jean," "Beat It," and "Thriller" not only helped pioneer the medium (and break MTV's color barrier, for that atter), but they drew praise from such esteemed hoofers as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.

Jackson hit a professional zenith in the summer of 1984, when he reteamed with his brothers (then recording as the Jacksons) for the aptly titled Victory tour. Though Jackson's next albums, Bad (1987) and Dangerous (1991), both topped the charts and sold millions, somehow, the excitement had ebbed. The lyrics, "It don't matter if you're black or white," struck an ironic chord, considering that the singer was obviously becoming ever more Caucasian-looking, thanks to plastic surgery and gobs of make-up. His rapidly altering appearance wasn't the only thing giving folks pause: perception of the once unimpeachable entertainer shifted from a judgment of forgivable eccentricity to one of downright weirdness as more stories of his odd habits like the fact that he kept a coffin, white mannequins, and a shrine to Elizabeth Taylor in his private quarters.

In 1993, Jackson consented to a rare interview with Oprah Winfrey. A huge prime-time audience tuned in to hear Jackson discuss his evolving appearance (which he attributed to a skin pigmentation deficiency and "only two" plastic surgery procedures), his romantic life (he named Brooke Shields as a girlfriend), and his Peter Pan-like existence at his Neverland ranch and amusement park near Los Angeles. The interview succeeded in making Jackson seem human.Jackson turned a dramatic personal corner in May 1994, when he married Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis's daughter, in a secret ceremony in the Dominican Republic. Many saw this surprise move as a blatant P.R. bid to repair a poor image; others found it touching and only fitting that modern music's most prominent families be united in holy matrimony.

Jackson subsequently released an ambitious double album of past hits and new songs called HIStory (1995). It received mixed reviews — praise for the oldies, pans for the new tracks — and sales were disappointing by Jacksonian standards, despite a publicity blitz that went way over the top. The campaign included a prime-time interview with Diane Sawyer of ABC News, during which Jackson and Presley insisted that their marriage was real . All that good lovin' aside, the union lasted but a scant 18 months. However, another marriage was in the cards for Jackson. In November 1996, Jackson announced that his friend Deborah Rowe (an assistant to his dermatologist) was carrying his child. The couple denied all tabloid reports that Jackson was merely renting Rowe's womb and that she was artificially inseminated. As proof of their love, Jackson and Rowe were married in Australia not long after the pregnancy became public knowledge. Three months later, Rowe gave birth to Prince Michael Jackson Jr. Daughter Paris Mich

ael Katherine was born in the spring of 1998.

The couple announced their mutual decision to divorce in fall 1999.Jackson's 1997 album, the part-new, part-remix Blood on the Dance Floor,suggested that the King of Pop is still hung up on his '80s glory days. Four years later, Jacko was back with a new album, Invincible, and a tribute concert in Madison Square Garden, in which a range of celebrities — from Whitney Houston to a Marlon Brando — helped him celebrate 30 years as a solo entertainer.

Even Michael's brothers turned out to honor their more-famous sibling, although the event was not without its share of controversy and sibling rivalry. In the aftermath of the horrific terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Jackson announced plans to record and release an all-star "We Are the World"-like single, with the aim of raising $50 million for the survivors and families of the victims. He enlisted the likes of Britney Spears, Destiny's Child, and the Backstreet Boys for the project.

Født syvende i en familie af ni børn i Gary, Indiana, blev Jackson lanceret i show business, når sin far, en stål-mill arbejdstager af handel, samles en sang gruppe kaldet Jackson fem med 5-årige Michael og sine fire ældre brødre. Oprindeligt, Joseph Michael i kanaludvalg som en nyhed, men det blev umiddelbart indlysende, at hans wee søn havde uhyrligt musikalske evner: hans røst besad en løbetid tilbagevist af sine unge år, og hans crowd-charmerende karisma overhalet de mest erfarne entertainere. Opmuntret af den unge prodigy talenter, flyttede Jackson fem hurtigt fra lokale talenter konkurrencer til en pladekontrakt med Motown. Gruppen genereret seks top-fem singler mellem 1969 og 1971 — herunder "Jeg vil du tilbage" og "ABC" — og ville forblive en hit-making maskine i hele 70 '' erne. Som hvis presset af frontmand en diagram-topping bandet ikke var nok for adolescent, trykkede Jackson blev snart af Motown at solo optagelser.

Etiketten var sikret det havde en superstjerne i fremstilling, når i 1971, Jacksons første på hans-selv-single, "I Be There," ramt No. 4 på charts. Udover hans arbejde med hans brødre, Jackson registreret mere hit solo singler — herunder "Rockende Robin" og "Ben" — og solo album for Motown; i 1976 underskrev han og Jackson fem med Epic. Under de sene '' 70s, foretaget Jackson en kort strejftog i film, instrueret modsatte Diana Ross i The ekspert (1978), en afroamerikanske opdatering af guiden Oz. Projektet var ordinære, Gem for det faktum, at det indføres Jackson at legendariske producent Quincy Jones, der arrangeres og gennemføres den filmmusik. Jones og Jackson samarbejdede på den sanger næste solo projekt, Off the Wall (1979), et album, der omdannes barn stjernen til en voksen superstar.

Fremdrives ved sådanne No. 1 hits som "Don''t Stop ''Til You Get nok" og "Rock med du", disc''en solgt ti millioner eksemplarer og blev barraged med kritiske ros for dens barriere-Busters blanding af sjæl og rock og dens gode-tid boogie vibe. (Rolling Stone''s notorisk hård-at-venligst kritiker, David Marsh, proklamerede Off the Wall "et mesterværk af moderne post beslutningstagning.") Det syntes at de nogensinde opblomstrende kunstneren kunne top selv, men at ''s nøjagtigt hvad han gjorde med 1982 udgivelsen af en smule registrere han kaldte Thriller. Historie noter, den Jones-produceret Thriller solgt op til 40 millioner eksemplarer (mere end nogen album før eller siden) og modtog kritisk kudos og en hidtil uset otte Grammy awards.

Albummet i diagrammet en post seks top-ti singler, begynder i November 1982 med Paul McCartney duetten, "The Girl Is Mine," og slutter en hele 16 måneder senere med titlen styr. Jackson vedholdende Thrillers fart med hjælp af musik videoer, som vinder rominence takket være den nyfødte MTV netværk. Jacksons strålende sang og dans videoer til "Billie Jean", "Beat It," og "Thriller" hjalp ikke kun pioner medium (og bryde MTVS farve barriere, der atter), men de henledte ros fra sådanne ansete hoofers som Fred Astaire og Gene Kelly.

Jackson ramt en professionel Zenit i 1984, når han reteamed med brødrene (derefter registrere som Jacksons) sommeren til rammende med titlen sejr tour. Selvom Jackson''s næste album, Bad (1987) og farlige (1991), begge toppede diagrammerne og solgt millioner, på en måde, ophidselsen havde ebbed. Sangtekster, "det ikke noget, hvis du er sort eller hvid," ramte en ironisk korde, overvejer at sanger naturligvis bliver stadig mere kaukasiske-leder, takket være til plastisk kirurgi og gobs af make-up. Hans hurtigt ændring udseende ikke var den eneste ting at give folk pause: opfattelse af den én gang ulastelige entertainer flyttes fra en dom afsagt af tilgiveligt excentricitet til en af ligefrem Crazy som flere historier om hans ulige vaner ligesom det faktum, at han holdt en kiste, hvid mannequiner og en helligdom til Elizabeth Taylor i sit private kvarter.

I 1993 tiltrådt Jackson et sjældne interview med Oprah Winfrey. En enorm prime time publikum indstillet på at høre Jackson drøfte hans foranderlige udseende (som han tilskrives en huden pigmentering mangel og "kun to" plastikkirurgi procedurer), hans romantisk liv (han opkaldt Brooke Shields som en kæreste), og hans Peter Pan-lignende eksistens på hans Neverland ranch og amusement park nær Los Angeles. Interviewet lykkedes at gøre Jackson synes menneskelige.Jackson slået en dramatisk personlige hjørne i maj 1994, når han giftede sig med Lisa Marie Presley, Elviss datter, i en hemmelig ceremoni i den Dominikanske Republik. Mange oplevede denne overraskelse flytte som en åbenlys P.R. bud til at reparere en dårlige image; andre fundet det rører og kun montering, moderne musik mest prominente familier være forenet i hellige ægteskabet.

Jackson udgav efterfølgende en ambitiøs dobbelt album af tidligere hits og nye sange kaldet historie (1995). Det modtog blandede anmeldelser — ros for svingere, gryder til de nye spor — og salg var skuffende ved Jackson standarder, trods en reklame blitz, der gik måde over toppen. Kampagnen omfattede en prime time interview med Diane Sawyer af ABC News, under som Jackson og Presley fastholdt, at deres ægteskab var reel. Alle at god lovin'' afsat, Unionen varede men en sparsomme 18 måneder. Et andet ægteskab var imidlertid i kortene til Jackson.
