The only thing that upset me about the death of Michael Jackson was that he died on the same day as Farrah Fawcett and stole all of the press she should have gotten!

It’s amazing how quickly people forgot that in addition to being a great musical artist (not to me, though…he wasn’t my taste in music), he was also a drug adict and accused child molester! Yet, despite that, it’s easy to see that his death is going to join the likes of celebrity-deaths-that-refuse-to-die just like Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Princess Diana.

THAT comment is a perfect example of why many times it’s best to keep your opinions to yourself. Such hatred and cynicism makes me sick to my stomach!

I (a lifetime MJ fanatic) will be there will bells on!

First and foremost, i live in a country whereby if you are proved innocent with a court of law and by your fellow peers, you should be treated that way, there was no proof any of that stuff ever happened, i am sure that if it had, more would have come out of the closet to make sure it did not happen again, i dont think there was even one, that being said, i was not a MJ fan but he did more good for the world then almost the entire ‘follywood’ we have now, sorry but facts are facts

Okay, all accusations of child molestations aside…

If you’re a drug additct by your own freewill, sooner or later, you’re going to “pay the check”! I said the same thing when Heath Ledger bought it!

Simon Overton, MJ was proven innocent, just imagine if you were innocent and found guilty, not so funny now, is it …….read the case and it will become apparent to you and many who like to judge that this was extortion. Mj was proven innocent because there was no evidence, and after interviewing 200 people, i think the LAPD would have found some.
