The 25th day of June. For many, it's a day they will never forget.

On the five-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, many fans will likely recall where they were when they learned of the King of Pop's untimely demise.

It's hard to believe that the late, great King of Pop died five years ago now, succumbing to cardiac arrest in the afternoon of June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.

Dr. Conrad Murray was eventually found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Jackson, who may be gone, but whose legacy lives and thrives.

The Moonwalk
Michael Jackson pioneered so many dance moves, he pretty much is in his own category. No one ever moved like this guy.

Without question, Jackson's death introduced a new generation of fans to his greatness and reinvigorated the loyal followers who loved him from day one.

In a sense, the impact he left is felt more with each passing year. But to say that the entertainer has not rested entirely in peace would be an understatement.

Some of the well-documented personal struggles and eccentricities that made news when he was alive have only been amplified since he left this world.

Michael's three children, Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson - kids he worked so tirelessly to give a normal well-adjusted life - have felt his loss the hardest.

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got together, we gave them our best side-eye, but it didn't seem that far-fetched that people so in love with themselves and attention would gravitate toward each other.

Not so with some of the other big couples in Hollywood, particularly those of the May-December varieties where the age gap is so great one could be the other's parent.

Then there are those pairings that inspire the public collectively asking "what could they POSSIBLY have in common?" Besides fame, that is. (And likely an affinity for kink.)

Some of Hollywood's best and brightest change significant others like normal people change underwear, so it's no surprise that some couplings are pretty bizarre.

Nevertheless, here are 17 weird celebrity couples we can't even believe:

Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis
Before becoming Ashton Kutcher's Baby Mama, Mila Kunis dated Macaulay Culkin...for EIGHT YEARS. Speaking of Ashton...

And speaking of those (sometimes) fleeting May-December romances, check out our gallery of some celebrity couples with big age differences between them.

Michael Jackson would've been friends with Justin Bieber, says Jermaine Jackson. And while the thought of Michael hanging out with a 14-year-old Justin might be a little unsettling, Jermaine claims the King of Pop would've been a positive influence on Bieber.

TMZ caught up with Jermaine at LAX recently and posed some interesting questions to the former jackson 5 member about how Michael would've gotten along with Justin:

Asked how his brother would react to the recent leak of Bieber's racist videos, Jermaine replied, "Michael would've straightened him out. Michael would've spoke to him like a father figure, told him, 'Hey you've gotta cool it, calm down.'"

Responding to the much simpler question of, "Do you think Michael would've been friends with Justin?" Jermaine replied quickly, "Probably so, yeah."

Safe to say that 17-year-old Michael Jackson fan Brett Nichols impressed more than the judges of his school's talent show with his impression of the singer.

He's been invited to Las Vegas by the Jackson Estate to attend a performance of Michael Jackson ONE, the amazing show featuring Jackson's music!

The executors of Michael's estate saw the student's Michael Jackson impression online and were so amazed, they put together a package to send to Nichols.

A Jackson rep confirms that they sent Nichols the new MJ album XScape and an invitation for Brett and his family (mom, dad and sister) to come to Vegas.

They contacted Nichols' principal in Turlock, Calif., who in turn told Nichols and his family, who in turn were excited beyond belief at the praise and opportunity.

Beats a high school talent show trophy any day. If you haven't seen the video above, check it out, Brett is unreal. Does the moonwalk and everything!

The Michael Jackson hologram that "performed" at the Billboard Music Awards was the talk of the event, but would the King of Pop himself approve?

At least one member of his family overwhelmingly believes he would.

"I'd been hearing about the hologram, and people were talking about it, but to see it with my own eyes was incredible, amazing," Michael's brother Jackie said.

"When he got up and started walking around  ... oh, my God, then when he started dancing? Unbelievable," the 63-year-old Jackson continued.

"It took me back. If Michael were here he would say thumbs up!"

As promised, MJ was brought back in lifelike form, singing and Moonwalking to recently released "Slave to the Rhythm" from the singer's posthumous album.

The Billboard Music Awards featured a performance by a Michael Jackson hologram Sunday, leaving fans stunned at how realistically the King of Pop's legacy lives.

Jackson, or the holographic incarnate of Jackson, performed "Slave to the Rhythm," a song from his new posthumous album Xscape. Watch in awe below:

Reminiscent of the Tupac hologram performance alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at Coachella in 2012, the King of Pop looked like he was right there.

One of the greatest entertainers ever digitally danced (moonwalk included) and sang onstage as if he never left us in 2009 after suffering cardiac arrest.

It was awesome, even if we were looking for it heading into the music extravaganza.

The surprise was spoiled late last week after a lawsuit surfaced claiming product infringement and briefly describing a Michael Jackson hologram performance.

Justin Timberlake, the driving force behind "Love Never Felt So Good," said it was always a dream to make a song with his musical idol Michael Jackson.

Now, albeit posthumously for Michael, Justin has realized the dream and produced a video with the late, great King of Pop as well. And it's a good one:

Four minutes long, the video is an obvious homage to Jackson, featuring clips from his past music videos and dancers’ imitating his dance moves.

"Love Never Felt So Good" is part of the album Xscape, featuring MJ’s singing alongside some of the biggest stars today, such as Timberlake and Mary J. Blige.

"Even when Michael was alive, we never stopped working on the song 'Xscape,'" said producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins of the new slate of recordings.

"It was one of the songs where he specifically said to me, 'It has to see the light of day one day.' Everyone did a really great job on this project," he said.

What do you think of Jackson and Justin's new song, and video?
