mj,pls.come back now...

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

My lifelong dream was to see MJ in concert, now my dream will never come true. I have loved him since I saw The Jackson 5 on the Sonny & Cher show back in the 70s. I was only about 3 or 4 but I remember it plain as day. There will never be another talent in my lifetime that will compare to him. He was a true angel from heaven. I will miss him dearly! God Bless You Michael! Maybe now he will get some peace.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I dont even know where to begin. Michael has been my favorite entertainer since I was about 4 years old. There will NEVER be another Michael.He will be greatly missed by his family, frienda and fans.Rest in Peace Michael. I will always love you!

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Tonight is the Oscars, I hope they do a tribute for Michael as well as all the other actors that passed in 2009. I miss M.J. so much, he was great in "The Wiz". Too bad he had no other real movie roles, I always wished he could have been bigger in the film industry as well as music. r.i.p. sweetie.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I am so sorry for Michael's death. He was the King of Pop. His music will live on. His talent will be remembered.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

im sad that mj died but,not surprised.rumours have been circulating for years about his dependency on drugs.we shouldnt blame his doctor.mj paid him to give him the drugs he wanted.the more drugs you take,the more drugs you need until it kills you.it happens everyday.on the 25 of june,it happened to michael jackson.RIP MJ

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

This is very true but its not that simple. The doctors take an oath. When doctors are giving out that kind of medicine for that long a period of time and you know just aS Well as I do that hios doctor along with so many other doctors knew Michael had a rpoblem but ignored it for what?? MONEY. that is what it all comes down to the all mighty dollar. The drug companys pay the doctors to get the grugs out there, the people getting the drugs dont really need all the drugs they are getting pushed on them so they sell them for a profit as does the next in line if they are not using them. People beg,steel,borrow,kill, sell themselfs do what ever it takes to get these drugs.nOW IF THE DRUG COMPANYS AND DOCTORS DIDNT PUSH THE DRUGS IN THE FIRST PLACE WE WOULDNT HAVE THIS PROBLEM. They say they only give the meds to those in need and that people in pain need this medication. I agree there are thousands of people who need this pain medication but there are thousands more that dont, because if they truly did we wouldt have the perscription drug problem we have today. I know if I needed pain medication I wouldnt be selling it. I also hope that if I developed an obvious drug problem that my doctor would care more about me and my life then my MONEY.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

WOW...I couldn't have said that any better myself:)

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

It amazes me that even when alive, no one gave Michael Jackson a chance. They judged him on every move he made. Definitely it couldn't have been easy having everyone calling him a freak. He was an amazing individual whose talent surpassed most. However, even now in death, people are still judging him. LEAVE HIM ALONE! Hes gone now and his spirit is still being rung through the dirt....If your going to pass judgment on someone, start on yourself. Once you grasp that, then you can judge others. His doctor knew full well of what he was doing. I have no sympathy for him what so ever. Should he end up in jail then so be it. He had a medical license and knew what the limits to that were. He chose to break those limits so whatever comes to him, he fully deserves. I feel for the Jackson family, well, most of them. His kids are going to be the ones who suffer the most by everyone still judging their father. Give it a rest already. Rest In Peace Michael. The world clearly wasn't ready for your spirit, your talent and your smile.

Gone Too Soon, every time I hear that song it makes me cry I love you and miss you. I know its better on the other side and you are getting the rest you deserve and hopefully that #*+@ing doctor gets what he deserves taking such a wonderful, loving, and generous soul away from so many people that loved him. I feel bad for janet,paris,prince michael jackson and blanket and also kathryn jackson my heart goes out to all of you. RIP Michael I will miss you and I love you I am a big fan

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I have doubts about this death and that of Brittaney Murphy. Both too similar, too suspicious.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I just love Michael Jackson. No matter what. I may be 13, and I may have known Michael for what was said in 2005 during the allegations , but I realized since he died, that he was a true star, a legend. I will keep his legacy alive. He is the the only, the essential, the greatest, the one and only king of pop. And I just wanted to let Michael know that I will love him,and to let him know that it is just good to know that he is the greatest inspiration that I could ever have. Thanks Michael!!! It will be hard to now live my life how I wanted, but I will now have to find a way to repair the hole that his death caused in my heart. He raised the pop culture standards and then broke them. He made music HIStory with the Jackson 5 and by himself. Thanks Michael, for being the biggest THRILLER the world has ever had. R. I. P. Michael Jackson!!!!

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I read today that It's official MJ's death has been ruled a homacide. He died from an overdose of Diprovan what a waste. Someone needs to be punished for this.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Oh my God.. this makes us so angry. We've suspected this already, but... Michael Jackson was killed. He didn't have to die. He is not supposed to be dead only if somebody didn't break the law. He killed one of the most important people in modern history. mmm~~~ Thank you for the info.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Its a fact that Micheal Jackson was a sensational pop star and more and it is unfortunate the circumstances of his death, but why do so many people try to point fingers and blame others for his drug use rather the man himself? What happened to people being accountable for their own actions?

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Michael Jackson was an entertainer, not a doctor. So, he hired a doctor and paid hundreds of thousand of $$$ to keep him healthy & keep him alive. Doctor gave him the drug. What did Michael know about drugs? nothing. Why would he worry about drugs? He had a doctor to worry about these things for him. He took whatever doctor approved. Michael wanted drugs, it was the doctor's job to say "No" to drugs that would kill him. It's not like Michael Jackson stole drugs from the doctor. When you hire a super expensive personal doctor, you are not supposed to worry about him killing you. It was the doctor's job to control what kind of drug he was taking. Remember, Michael Jackson was a life-time entertainer. He didn't go to college. He hired a doctor to worry about his health for him. If you cannot trust your own doctor, that's a pretty messed up world. ========================= Let's say you are sick. You go to the doctor and say "Give me whatever the drugs so I feel better." And the doctor kills you. Then it's your fault? Does that sound right to you?

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

I get a kick out of listening to Jermaine Jackson on TV. When questioned about knowing if Michael was on presciption drugs, he gave a lot of double talk. If he said yes, the next question would be, did you try to help him? He obviously knew. All the family knew, and did nothing about it. They all helped put him in his grave. There were some that tried to help, but they were over ruled. Michael certainly had his problems, but he was a tremendous talent. A true super star. He was a musical genius. May he rest in peace.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Again, it came as no surprise that Michael's father responded just like Jermaine. He also said he had no knowledge of Michael being on Prescription drugs. He's a liar just like Jermaine. They knew Michael had a problem and did nothing to help him. Let's see who else is in line to follow in these foot steps.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

Ah~~!!! I tried not to say anything bad about Michael Jackson's family member. Did you see Joe Jackson a few days after Michael's death? He was busy promoting his own record company.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

You're right about Joe. I didn't need to go off about him. Most sane people realize what a piece of sh*# he is.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies 50

DEAR JACKSON FAMILY: WE ARE VERY SADDENED WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT MICHEAL'S DEATH. WE GREW UP WITH HIM AND THE JACKSON FIVE. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND MAY HE REST IN PEACE.MAY HIS LEGACY GO ON FOREVER!!! CRAWFORD FAMILY PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies of Heart Attack 50

this is a shock like when Elvis died. my prayers and thoughts go out to the family he is now with Jesus

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies of Heart Attack 50

Michael Jackson is a true King of Pop. This is the most shocking death, also the most important death of this decade. I never knew I liked Michael Jackson this much. I used to make fun on him. 3 day later, I am still crying. We didn't know how good we had it. I miss Michael Jackson. RIP - King Michael Jackson.

Re: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, Dies of Heart Attack 50

Love you mike you are truly the king of pop its sad that we are singing one of his songs for him he is really gone to soon and I hope that the doctor that killed him gets what he deserves he took a thaughtful, caring and giving soul RIP michael I LOVE. Nativequeen
