It’s one of those days that true fans don’t rely on a calendar to remember…they can’t forget it.  For those of us who require a gentle brain jog, social media gladly and sometimes poetically serves up reminders.


Thousands of adoring fans paid tribute to the King of Pop’s birthday with clips of their favorite songs, snippets of his legendary dance moves or just simple words of love…


It wasn’t just fans who took a moment to remember Jackson on what would have been his 60th birthday.  Singer Janet paid homage to her big brother with a sneak peek at her upcoming video  inspired by his “Remember the Time”.

Jackson released “Remember the Time” in 1992 off his “Dangerous” album. The song climbed the charts to hit the #3 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 fueled by an epic, expensive and expansive video.  With a total run time of nine minutes, Michael’s video was more like a short film.  Jackson spared no expense hiring  Academy Award nominated “Boyz in the Hood” director John  Singleton and A-list celebs Eddie Murphy, model Iman and NBA legend Magic Johnson.

The video  itself was nothing short of an extravaganza… set in ancient Egypt and featured what at the time was considered groundbreaking visual effects.  Jackson shows up as a wizard risking his life after two other performers are executed in failing to entertain the Pharaoh (Murphy) and his Queen(Iman). After he captures the royal couple’s attention, the Queen remembers the wizard as a man she once loved.  The story plays out to the lyrics culminating in one of Jackson’s most spectacular dance routines ever.

Michael’s video had suspense, choreography to perfection, high tech(for the times), big named celebrities and humor all swirling around a beat that couldn’t miss.  Will baby sis Janet’s tribute live up to the original or Michael’s standards? Well, the peek she’s giving fans thus far shows she’s nailed two aspects of the original…dramatic, regal attitude and a sense of humor.

    On topic: Some of you may hate me for saying this but this is my opinion. Janet Jackson is not talented. She doesn’t sing songs, she whispers songs. She can’t act, but I will give her props for dancing; thanks to Paula Abdul. The biggest reason why Janet is a icon? Two names, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis.

    P.S. The woman who was once married to Terry Lewis is ten times more talented than Janet Jackson. Her name is Karyn White, remember her?
