Michael Joseph Jackson was an American recording artist, entertainer, singer, dancer, actor, and businessman who is referred as "King of Pop" or by his initials, "MJ".

He also appeared in a few Disney TV specials, such as Disneyland's 25th Anniversary.
His song "Thriller" was featured as a brief music video in DTV Monster Hits. Another song of that he performed with his brothers The Jackson 5 when he was younger, "I Want You Back", was featured in Guardians of the Galaxy.
He married the daughter of Elvis Presley, the so-called "King of Rock and Roll", and assisted many opperations for changing the color of his skin. He did activism about this, and sang about skin colour in some songs composed by him. He had a very special voice since he was a kid, and when he was younger he was famous for being the singer in Jackson 5, a group formed by some of his siblings. He was the seventh of nine brothers.
- Michael Jackson once expressed interest in purchasing the huge welcoming sign to the Anaheim Disneyland Resort from 1989 to 1999, but was stopped by John Stamos of Full House fame who beat him to it and stored the massive blue and white lettering in the backyard of his California home which can be seen from satellite pictures. Not to be a sore loser, Michael Jackson called John Stamos on the phone to say “congratulations” for his big win.
