This is my kindergarten school photo. Yes, I am wearing a "Thriller" dress. I also owned, at the time, one sequined glove and a miniature red leather jacket. I'm not even making this up...I was hardcore. Michael Jackson was my childhood. Watching current news reports, I must say, regardless of the circus his life has become, I would be saddened if anything happened to him. 

EDIT: I am saddened.
