However, in 2017 Chris McCarthy, the President of MTV, stated that the statue would be called a "Moon Person" from then on.[73] The statue was conceived by Manhattan Design—also designers of the original MTV logo—based on the 1981 "Top of the Hour" animation created by Fred Seibert, produced by Alan Goodman, and produced by Buzz Potamkin at Buzzco Associates. The statue is now made by New York firm, Society Awards.[74] Since the 2006 ceremony, viewers are able to vote for their favorite videos in all general categories by visiting MTV's website.[75]

Presidential honorsEdit

 
Jackson at the White House with President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan, 1984

In 1984, Jackson was approached to donate "Beat It" as backing music for a commercial on drunk driving.[83] Jackson agreed and it was arranged for the singer to be awarded with an honor from the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan.[83] Prior to collecting the award, President Reagan sent Jackson a telegram, which read:[17]

Your deep faith in God and adherence to traditional values are an inspiration to all of us. You've gained quite a number of fans along the road since "I Want You Back" and Nancy and I are among them. Keep up the good work, Michael. We're very happy for you.

The presentation took place on May 14, 1984, at the White House.[83] Upon reaching the podium, Reagan remarked,  "I hope you'll forgive me, but we have quite a few young folks in the White House who all wanted me to give you the same message. They said to tell Michael, "Please give some TLC to the PYTs."[84] A reference to Jackson's Grammy Award-nominated song, "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)". Reagan also stated that Jackson "is proof of what a person can accomplish through a lifestyle free of alcohol or drug abuse. People young and old respect that. And if Americans follow his example, then we can face up to the problem of drinking and driving, and we can, in Michael's words, beat it."[83][84]

In April 1990, Jackson returned to the White House to be recognized as "Artist of the Decade" by President George H. W. Bush.[85] Two years later, on May 1, 1992, President Bush presented Jackson with an award acknowledging him as "a point of light ambassador".[85][86] Jackson received the award in recognition for his efforts in inviting disadvantaged children to his Neverland Ranch.[86] Jackson was the only entertainer to receive the award.[86]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ In 1986, Jackson netted a deal with Pepsi worth between $12-15 million. It was once held as the most successful payout for a commercial spokesperson until the mid-to-late 1990s and early 2000s when superstars such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé and 50 Cent began to make upwards of $50 million off commercial endorsements. Jackson's record is broken.
  2. ^ Jackson's all-time Wembley record of 504,000 in 1988 was outdone in 2011 by the singing group Take That, who performed at Wembley Stadium for eight consecutive nights performing in front of a record 623,737 people, plus during Jackson's tour, he performed five consecutive nights on July 14, 15, 16, 22, and 23, then after stops in Wales, Ireland, Spain, France and Germany, he returned to Wembley for the last two nights on August 26 and 27, 1988.
  3. ^ Jackson possibly held this record until Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow in 2006 when the tour grossed over $126.8 million worldwide, topping the $125 million set by Jackson in 1989. Since then, other male solo artists such as Roger Waters, Justin Bieber, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney and Bruno Mars have had tours that have grossed more money than Jackson did. The record has since been claimed by Ed Sheeran, who leads among all solo artists and artists in general with his ÷ Tour in 2019.
  4. ^ Though he was listed in Guinness' book as the youngest chart-topper in 1999, in recent years, this was corrected to Stevie Wonder, who as a solo artist, first topped the charts with "Fingertips" in 1963 when he was just 13. Jackson's first solo chart-topper, "Ben", hit number one in October 1972, two months after he turned 14.
  5. ^ This record is likely now broken by Mariah Carey, who like Jackson, also records R&B music, as well as pop. Her recent number one was "All I Want for Christmas is You", which topped the Billboard Hot 100, on December 21, 2019. Jackson's span lasted 22 years and 19 days between "Ben" on October 14, 1972 and "You Are Not Alone" on September 2, 1995. Mariah's span is longer at 29 years and 139 days.[59]
  6. ^ The record now belongs to Pharrell Williams' "Happy".
  7. ^ Although Guinness World Records mentioned 26 wins, according to the American Music Awards' database, he is only credited with 24.
  8. ^ Since the record was set in 2011, Jackson posthumously placed two more top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 including "Love Never Felt So Good" in 2014 and "Don't Matter to Me" with Drake in 2018.
  9. ^ This award would've went to Rod Temperton had "Thriller" won in this category.
  10. ^ Shared with Michael Peters.
  11. ^ Credited to Jackson, Gregg Burge and Jeffrey Daniel.
  12. ^ Credited to Jackson and Vincent Paterson.
  13. ^ Credited to Jackson and Vincent Paterson.
  14. ^ Since this award came after Jackson's death, the award did not go directly to him so it won't count to his awards tally.
