Gone Too Soon
Celebs who died before their time.
Today (August 29) would have been the legendary pop star Michael Jackson’s 53rd birthday, but sadly he passed away at the age of 50 in June 2009.

Even though MJ has been gone for over two years now, there is still plenty about his legacy that lives on today, such as the tribute concert his family is planning for October 8. While details are still being worked out, even Beyonce will take part in the sure-to-be memorable event.

To remember the King of Pop on this occasion, Celebuzz put together some of his best moments from his epic, decades-long career.

From his start as a child star to his unforgettable “Thriller” days, check out the gallery to look back at his best moments and watch some of his videos below. Then be sure to let us know which MJ moment is your fave by sounding off in the comments.
