SMITH magazine asks readers to sum up Jackson's life in six words -- can you do it?

Posted on

It would be difficult to sum up Michael Jackson’s life in 600 words alone, but the editors of SMITH magazine are inviting readers to write epitaphs for the late singer in just six words. The magazine — which has won fans for its six-word memoir compilations — is holding a contest for the three readers who can compose the best “Jackson 6.” My personal favorite thus far?  Mary Elizabeth Williams’ “From ABC to PYT to RIP.”

So PopWatchers, we want to know: What will you be submitting to SMITH magazine? What six words do you feel represent Jackson’s life? Do you think it’s even possible to sum up a life in six words? And what’s your favorite tribute to the singer that you’ve seen so far?
