The death of Michael Jackson was a shocker to some of us, since we all grew up with his music.
For me, I was very taken aback and felt compelled to follow some of it for awhile. I realized that integrating my cultural and societal priorities, then with now, was a continuing process, and that much of the “then” still lurks in the”now”.
For BTs the interaction with celebrity culture and music is not as simplistic as the “chazerish goyim” approach of many FFB’s.
How have people dealt with integrating their musical pasts with their current self?
