Michael, through no fault of his own, viewed life from the perspective of a "deprived" celebrity: The childhood he missed out on became endless fodder for his complaining about his early family life. It's interesting in the article cited above, Michael zeroed in on the nice, comfy possessions of the middle-class.
He was not a socially conscious performer; the working class or ghetto seldom, if ever figured in his lyrics. His "Feed the World" was a one-off,m one, money-making pieve of congratulatory celebrity back-slapping. Never before has a "superstar" embodied such unrelenting, adolescent self-absorption.
When anyone dies before their "time", it's a tragedy. Like his ex-father-in-law, Elvis, the real king of rock and roll - Michael died long after his heyday was over.
