Michael Jackson Eyeglasses



As the world's most famous celebrity and probably music's biggest star, Michael Jackson has an influence that puts anything that has the slightest relation to him under spotlight. The innumerable pairs of shades Michael had on during his tours, at award shows and even in private life throughout his life are no doubt gaining huge attention after his tragic passing. Besides being a music icon, the King of Pop was also a fashion pioneer, whose sporting of Ray-ban aviator glasses and Wayfarer contributed much to both models' later popularity. For any Michael Jackson fan or impersonator out there, a pair of such spectacles would be a must-have and is becoming the iconic signature of Michael Jackson style frames.

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist, entertainer, and businessman. Referred to as the King of Pop, or by his initials MJ, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contribution to music, dance, and fashion, along with a much-publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5, then the Jacksons in 1964, and began his solo career in 1971.

In the early 1980s, Jackson became a dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs, including those of "Beat It", "Billie Jean", and "Thriller", were credited with transforming the medium into an art form and a promotional tool, and the popularity of these videos helped to bring the relatively new television channel MTV to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" made him a staple on MTV in the 1990s. Through stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, to which he gave the name. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style have influenced numerous hip hop, post-disco, contemporary R&B, pop and rock artists.
