Maybe it’s partially a self-fulfilling prophecy but I do believe that, for the most part, it’s quite clear that the more talented you are, the weirder you are. Geniuses are usually at least a little awkward, if not totally socially inept. The most famous composers almost always led strange, and at least somewhat immoral, lives.
Michael Jackson was no different. It’s almost like we have a theoretical choice between having weirdos and unbelievable talent that touches our souls in ways nothing else does, or neither.
When I watch Michael sing and dance, it’s 100% apparent that he was of extreme talent. The way he moved was so unique. The way he sang, the same! His sense of music and rhythm was extraordinary. And he performed with such fervor and passion.

Here’s another one of his performances. Amazing. Man in the mirror
