What's in a name?  What's in a title?  You can bring your own M.J. story to the table if you wish.  You can draw your own conclusion from the title of this piece if that's what you want.  I can't tell you what you should think.  You'll think what you'll think anyway.Is it too much to ask you not to judge? Look at the art.  Delight in the sheer privilege.  Who was this figure?  Who was he/she/it to you?  Did his work impact your life?  King of Pop.  Complete entertainer.  Serious unanswered questions about his lifestyle.  Serious allegations.  The intended double entendre in the naming of this piece is to allow you, the viewer and participant to determine the side of the argument to which you naturally gravitate.His struggles with colour, his own appearance, gender and hypersensitivity.  His life cut short. This complex figure has been portrayed in countless ways.I chose the hypothetical graphic concert poster in a latin venue to summarize his life.

Did he sell out completely?

Was he completely Sold Out?
