an old MJ tribute i’ve nearly forgotten about [edited]

i was casually browsing through my files for some ol school Backstreet Boys songs to add in my music player, and i stumbled upon this old piece i wrote during my internship in 2012 that prolly never got published. but hey, who says i can’t publish it myself even if nobody’s there to read it?

believe me, i wrote this with enough knowledge that i have not just as a fan but (briefly) a researcher, since this was meant for a newspaper. there’s also some extra tidbit i added for extra improvement (kinda?), but i digress.

EDIT [12-8-2017]: i decided to move the tribute piece to my other blog. i’d like to keep this one more casual ish, i guess. oh well.
