Talent isn’t EVER excuse for immorality.

You got that right. I won’t miss him at all

Talent is no excuse for anything, let alone Jackson’s sick and twisted personal behaviour.
Talent is talent, a gift, an art, a great humanizing influence.
Jackson had loads of it like virtually noone else in pop music since the Beatles.
His iconic musical accomplishments will be remembered by all, and for that alone he will be missed.
