Armond White is one of the most creative thinkers alive. His pop culture analysis is razor sharp, unique, and defiant. He is also one of the rare critics who recognizes the meaningful connection between visuals and music. His music video deconstructions are frighteningly cutting edge. When I read his writing, I feel like I am reading my inner id: reject common wisdom, find the fearless truth of your own voice. Anyone with a creative soul will love Armond White.

—Joseph Kahn, film & music video director

Friday, October 16th, 2009

With interest in Michael Jackson so high at this time, we here at thought it would be helpful to post some youtube links where critic Armond White talks about Michael Jackson's Legacy BEFORE Michael's passing.

These two clips are from a music video presentation by Armond White on Michael Jackson. It took place on January 18, 2008 and was entitled, "Pop Video Artists and Hollywood Influence". These two clips (from the introduction to his presentation) focus on the music video JAM. In the music video are rap stars Heavy D, Naughty By Nature, Kriss Kross, and NBA Great Michael Jordan.
