What do you think when you heard "Pop music"?
I'm thinking about Michael Jackson. He was the legacy of MTV.
At that time (the middle of 80s'), people could get informations of music only in MTV show. There was no youtube, myspace, facebook, even internet. They watched MTV and know what is in fashion of music.
Do you think the next one will be coming up like Michael Jackson?
Actually, No. Sometime, Lady Gaga is compared with him. Her performance is awesome and brilliant like Michael Jackson, but we CAN compare with others via internet. This is the difference from 80s'. Michael Jackson was the only one at that era.
I think Michael jackson was the last superstar in music.
