39 Michael Jackon  
I started these months ago and never got around to posting them. I screencapped the hell out of the "Black or White" extended version (the original version with the extra four minutes that caused unnecessary controversy). This addition to the music video is some of the best and most memorable footage of Michael Jackson that exists. It is one of my favourite things that he ever did. I have absolutely no idea why it caused any uproar; it is a fantastic piece of self-expressive art and depicts Jackson 'smashing' through hate and racism. There is some brilliant acting in this piece, not to mention beautiful and provocative dance sequences.

Thank you, honey! <3 Let me know how you enjoy it. :) It is pretty easy to find on YouTube but I will link it just in case: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmxtEUiBmIU

Thank you again for the comments. I spent so long on these and am not completely happy with them, but it's better they just get posted than collect dust on my hard drive. :P

Thank you very, very much for sharing this link with me sweetie! *huge, huge hugs & endless love* : D ♥ I wholeheartedly appreciate it and thanks again for sharing your beautiful icons with us. : ) ♥

I just finished watching the video a few minutes ago and my heart is still dancing like crazy over it. : ) ♥ I cannot believe I have never seen this video in it's entirety before because it really is a treasure. I thought it was so beautiful and inspiring again, I was astonished by MJ's dance moves. ; ) ♥ I loved how he kept dancing all the way through it, even as he was destroying the messages of hate all around him. What a beautiful way to fight prejudice: not by hating them back, but through the power of dance. How nice to have a music that is not just visually beautiful, but meaningful and powerful as well. *thumbs up* : ) ♥

Dont even know how I found this place, but I love these icons. Black or White was the first exposure I ever had to Michael Jackson so it's a very special video to me, controversy or not. XD

He was a beautiful person. I love him and miss him so much <3 :)

Thank you! I am so glad you like them. :) And happy to run into another MJ fan. This video is really special to me too. I do not think any other musician has touched my life to the degree MJ has. Like you, I miss him endlessly, every single day, and regret he was taken from us so soon. Thank you again for your comment and so happy an MJ fan has stumbled across my icon journal. ♥
