Rain reflected on how Michael Jackson influenced him following the King of Pop’s death on Thursday. “I feel so sad,” the Korean pop singer said. “I’m very sorry to hear this. To me Michael Jackson was my mentor, he was my idol. Because of him, I started dancing. He will be a legend forever. He’s a mentor to all dancers. I’m sorry to hear this. I hope he is happy in heaven.” Video of the comments at Turner.com has since been removed.
