This Michael pose is one that many remember, a pose that he was popular for. He is wearing his famous white glove and white socks, with his hat that covers his eyes while he performs for you all. Michael Jackson was first a member of the Jackson 5 when he was a kid. The Jackson Five consisted of five members and all of them are brothers (obviously). There is Marlon, Jackie, Tito, Michael, and Jermaine. The king of pop's full name was and still is Michael Joseph Jackson and he was born August 29, 1958. Jackson started his solo career in 1971 with songs like "Rock With You". In 1982 his album Thriller hit the pop charts and there it stayed for months on end. In fact "Thriller" was the best selling album of all time to date.
Michael Jackson is also responsible for the very popular dance move called the "moonwalk" which eventually became his signature move. The moonwalk was originally called the "backslide" but after Jackson got a hold of the step it went from slide to walk. His dancing technique which consisted of jerks, swirls, spins, bends, jumps, and even the occasional standing on his toes, is used even today with many dance moves that are current and upbeat. Break dancers even incorporate Michael Jackson's moves with some of their dance moves as seen in the movie "Step Up 2". He was a man ridiculed for his likes and dislikes, and he was also a man that liked to live a carefree and childish life.
