Farewell To The Man In The Mirror
30 August 2015 | by roddekkerSee all my reviews

Even though I would never say that I was/am much of a fan of the late Michael Jackson, I certainly would agree with many that he sure was something of a dynamic entertainer who definitely put a lot of himself into his live performances.

Out of these 10 music-videos of Jackson's (that span from the years between 1979-1992), I can only say that I liked less than half of them.

To me, it was clearly Michael Jackson's videos from the earlier part of his career that impressed me the most.

Unfortunately for Jackson - It appeared that in a number of his latter music-videos he was striving way too hard to be perceived by his adoring fans as some sort of a tough-guy/lady's man. But, as was so obvious, Jackson's looks (due to cosmetic-surgery overload) were just too frail and girlish for him to pull this off convincingly.
