I loved his music, especially thriller :)

I recon his music will live on for at least another 50/60 years

Sucks to be you if you're only focused on the abuse claims, which, fyi, he was never found guilty for in a court, rather aqcuitted or settled out of court.

And even though I had the video clip long before all this, I suggest you (re)watch Thriller. It's awesome, even though it goes for 14 minutes

The fact that he shared his bed with kids is wrong really but I suppose he didn't really deserve to die like that.

I just read in the newspaper that he was killed by an overdose of Morphine by his personal doctor. What a [censored]. RIP Michael.

Didin't like what the guy turned into, but his earlier music and music videos were good.
A morphine OD doesn't seem like too bad a way to go.

Yeah, I've had a few rough days about his death. I had to avoid Facebook, primarily for the reason of all the hate status messages posted about boys being safe. People pay attention to the media way too much. Detroit is hosting candlelight vigils in Hitsville and everything, as this is where the Jackson 5 grew to fame here in Motown. Surely, he died too young [only 50!]. People say he is a freak, but that's because they are jealous they can't have what he has, and that is worldwide fame. True, he had a strong relationship with children and boys if you will, but that's because his terrible father never allowed Michael to have the childhood he always wanted.

My father and I had a strong relationship with music, where he idolized Elvis [who "died from taking a load"] and I idolized Michael Jackson [who "died from getting his beat on with boys"]. It's all celebrity media torture, where people will either take death in a funny manner, or shove it down people's throats. Little do they realize all of the greatest achievements these people have accomplished. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, don't get me wrong. It's always Windows vs. Mac OS vs. Linux vs. whatever, and Black vs. White pretty much. But there always comes a time where you have to give respect to those who have passed away or lost someone meaningful in their lives.

Also, I'm not so sure about the overdose of Morphine from the doctor. If it's true, then CNN and almost every newscast would be televising it. They are about to perform a second autopsy on the King of Pop, but I truly don't want to know how he died either way.

R.I.P. Michael Joseph Jackson. You will be missed.
