During his childhood days M.J. suffered from child abuse and loneliness which he revealed on some of the popular T.V. shows.

Despite of various controversies, M.J’s fans didn’t stop listening to his songs, dancing on his beats and imitating his style with his ‘Moonwalk‘.
Though I am not a big fan of M.J.,yet i thought of paying a tribute to the King of Pop on his birthday as he was a man who despite of facing many ups and downs in his life, has cemented a place in our hearts forever.
