Remembering Michael Jackson. Reading and Vocabulary

Posted on Aug 30 2015 - 11:00am by PopESL

Michael Jackson would have turned 57 yesterday, Aug. 29. He died June 25, 2009, at the age of 50.

He’s still as popular as ever with fans.  Six years after his death, Mani Niall, his personal chef for two years, has said he will cook Jackson’s fave foods Saturday to celebrate the star’s birthday. Apparently the King of Pop’s favorites include pizza with shiitake mushrooms, Japanese eggplant and roasted peppers and “ookies” or pecan shortbread cookies.

Niall says that Jackson had a “fairly limited diet” and was “a vegetarian who didn’t like vegetables.”

“He liked pizza, but he didn’t like pasta,” he continues.

Jackson was, and still is, the undisputed King of Pop and nobody has been able to replace him. Michael is the World’s best-selling Pop Solo Artist of all Time, and the 3rd best-selling Recording Act of All time, after the Beatles and Elvis Presley.

Michael’s Album ‘Thriller’ is the best-selling album of all time, with sales of 110 million copies worldwide.
