VIDZONE UPDATE: The King of Pop, 25 Years Of Badness
If bad ever did mean good (which it increasingly does these days) then it’s now. Not only do we have a celebration of an album so bad it’s called, well… Bad, we have some more badness from the likes of all the VMA winners, Incubus, Breakbot, Lostprophets, Yeasayer and Two Door Cinema Club who all feature this week. The only actually bad meaning bad thing about this is that there are so many bad meaning good things to read about that it will keep you away from your PlayStation for precious extra minutes.
Enough of my unintelligible bibble… Over to Candice to make some sense of everything.
Artist Of The Week – Michael Jackson (Bad 25th Anniversary)
2012 marks the 25th Anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s legendary album, Bad. That’s right, the megastar released the album way back in 1987, which gave the world a mountain of classic hits including ‘Bad’ (duh!), ‘Man In The Mirror’, ‘Smooth Criminal’, ‘Dirty Diana’, ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ and more! Here at VidZone HQ we thought what better way to celebrate this special occasion than by crowning the undisputed King Of Pop as our Artist Of The Week. Dust off that white rhinestone glove, lower that fedora hat, perfect your moonwalk and watch the full playlist now in our Featured and Pop Zones. Shamone!
