Tomorrow (September 18) brings the 25th anniversary re-release of Michael Jackson‘s seventh studio album, Bad. Over the past month we’ve celebrated the momentous occasion by revisiting MJ’s 1988 Bad tour performance of “Human Nature”, presenting a rare demo of “Smooth Criminal” (“Al Capone”), listing our favorite pop star covers of Bad tracks and even giving away a copy of the re-release. But we’re not the only ones excited the late King Of Pop’s music milestone.

We chatted up  some of our favorite pop stars about what Bad, the fifth-highest selling album of all time, has meant to them. Kylie Minogue, Miguel, Alex Clare, Wonder Girls and more told us their personal stories of the first time they heard Jackson’s final album of the ’80s and the lasting impression its made, not just on their own music, but on the pop landscape. Whether it was on vinyl, cassette or their iPod — or they were taking in the album’s music videos on VHS tape or while glued to the TV set waiting for MTV to play the them just once more — each artist had their own vivid memory to share.

Watch above, and then reminisce with your thoughts on Bad in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter.
