    This is so sad and unreal, I was hoping and looking forward to see him return to stage again and restore his rep and remind us of what he really should be remembered for. He was himself in a world of actors and marionettes, not taking part in the subjective world so many people strive to live up to to gain social status and rep. In my eyes he helped breaking down racial barriers, and he was a living legend and a genius which lived his dreams; - and for that he was harassed, abused and crucified by the world.

    If you can't understand his accomplishments, you can't expect to understand what a genius he was.

    I read they are looking for the doctor... I can see some parallels to Elvis here, there was a doc in the shadows there too... I still remember the day he died.

    In my opinion Michael Jackson was the last superstar of the world and we will probably never see such talent and fame again.

    I don't have so much music of him but he was a stunning entertainer and perfectionist with a beautifull vocal voice, and I will probably go out and buy more music and dvd's of him.

    It must be hard to live up to an image, knowing that the image is one thing, and the human being is another... but the human being is forgotten by people, overshadowed by the image...

    maybe god saw he needed to rest and brought him home to be with him...

    may he rest in peace

    Very sad. As with so many others, he was definitely a part of my childhood. From time to time my parents joke about me doing “the Michael Jackson dance” when I was little. This basically meant I moved around in a sort of jittering fashion like a crazy person, resembling Jackson’s moves for maybe a second and by accident.

    At EPCOT, I loved the Captain EO ride. I had the Michael Jackson sneakers from L.A. Gear (black with gold, metal circles). I was really young, so I didn’t really listen to or buy albums, but the big singles, especially “Beat It” and “Bad,” I loved. I didn’t end up buying any of his music until the past few years, which is when I got a little deeper into his older stuff and other tracks. I still need to go back and buy all his albums and I’ll do that one day.

    He was a tremendous talent and he’ll be missed.

    I was only ever a lightweight fan but I found him very entertaining and especially enjoyed "Thriller". I always thought the way his detractors used the media to smear him was especially cruel. It cannot have been easy to live a life labelled as "whacko Jacko" and his restraint when taunted was admirable. His almost childlike innocence was ultimately his undoing. I for one am going to miss him.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    That is strange that men of genius die early... or maybe it is logical ...

    I believe most of his fans will keep the tickets for the concerts in memory of Michael...

    I can't judge him more then what iv seen,and heard,
    Ive never heard his songs (Which with I think I'm kinda glad)
    but what Ive seen his kinda creepy, and a weirdo.
    But wasn't he born black And now is err was white?
    But, what the heck r.i.p Michael Jackson.





    Now I'm not trying to offend anyone, this is my own opinion.

    You don't offend anyone Daniel. It would be irrealistic if everybody liked him or thought well of him.

    I used to be a big fan and have plenty of albums. I went to one of his concerts and it was amazing. He was a great performer and a great entertainer. He definately was... how to say it? out of this world. Literally. I don't think that he never lived a real life, no when he was a child and of course, no when he was famous and in all his glory.

    I never knew what to think about all the accusations made about him. I would like to think that they were false.

    I find a bit funny that the father he hated so much is now the one receiving all the spotlight.

    Yet, it is true that he was a genious, and very possibly all contact with reality was impossible. Too many interests from too many people. But he had a great influence in many other artists and he did a lot for the show business.

    It is sad and unexpected that he had to die like this. I would have loved to go to London for another concert

    You know what annoys me ?

    All of the out-pouring of love and affection and appreciation and kind words... he heard none of that.

    Many of the same people were calling him Wacko Jacko and laying on the jokes. TV station reporters especially.

    The memorial service was touching. It is still hard to believe he's dead.
    too bad all these kind words and recognition had to come to him this way. he deserved to hear this while he was still alive.

    I know I'm not saying anything new, but we should all stop focusing on the tragedy that was his death and celebrate the epicness that was his life.

    That being said... have you watched the dance tribute that took place in Copenhagen? Yeah. We're going to do it in Bogota too... times 5. It's going to be insane!

    He was a very messed up man... of course millions loved him, but sometimes that's an absolute curse. In his case it definitely was. One can become too famous, untouchable, and somewhat of a virtual human. Unfortunately, he went the way of Elvis. Another one...
