Re: Michael Jackson is DEAD!
Was out last night at a party when we saw it on the news. Stuck on some tunes and had a bit of a dance.. Can't say i was devistated. I always found it hard to even look at him in the later years...a shadow of the brilliance and the genius he showed in his early career. I cant help but think he died a long time ago.

Hopefully what he will leave behind is a legacy of great music and amazing dancing, and not all the other bullshit and scandle.

RIP

Re: Michael Jackson is DEAD!
I am really quite upset by this. I guess I must be old, but I remember how excited my sister and I were waiting for the first full transmission of the Thriller video on the tv.

He was an intrinsic part of, well, most of my life really. Always there. I was never the mega-fan but loved his stuff in the 80s - and still do.

Bollocks to anyone raking over his private life on a day like this. The man was immense, and there will be many other days apart from this one to tear his memory to shreds.

RIP King of Pop.

Ah yes. BBC1, December 2, 1983. OK, I had to look up the date, but clearly remember the anticipation and excitement throughout the UK at the time, and just being in complete awe at how movie-like it was.

Re: Michael Jackson is DEAD!
I'm pretty bummed about this. We'll never have another quite like him again - the man was a top celebrity from the time he was like 11 years old, an age when most of us were worried about long division and spelling bees. Even 25 years removed from Thriller, the guy still commanded a room in a way that very few could. Who's reached that level of celebrity throughout the years? Is the list really this short - The Beatles, Sinatra, and Micheal Jordan? The guy's entire personal life became national news and it drove the man crazy - I know he brought a lot of it on himself, but above all else you can tell that all the condeming stories in the media, all the rumors and lies, all the constant joking and judging really got to him and affected his life in a terrible way. RIP Mike

Re: Michael Jackson is DEAD!
oh come on; he's done nothing of note for years, apart from behave indecently with small children. the hypocricy surrounding this has been incredible.

1 paedophile down. a very famous paedophile - that's the only difference. good riddance.

Wow, that's only the 16th time i have heard this joke, and it wasn't funny the other 15 times either. What is it about MJ that inspires so many juvenille and unfunny jokes? They are funny if you have maybe like a 5th grader's understanding of the man, but the truth is that no jokes can really envelop the guy's overall weirdness...talk about an easy target...

Good riddance? Hypocrisy? So when Bill Clinton dies will you be saying "one adulterer down"? Will you say similar things about Bill Cosby and Bob Barker because of their sex scandals? Does the fact that Thriller was 25 years ago mean that it doesn't matter if he's alive anymore? Do you really think the only difference between MJ and a paedophile (MJ was aquitted, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt) is that MJ is famous? You do know he made music, right? Like, the best selling album of all time? I'm not even a big MJ fan - but I guess some think that people ought to be defined by the negative things in their life. Nobody's denying that the dude was a total weirdo - and for the record, there's no hard evidence that the guy was attracted to children, or anything more than just a nutball whose every move made headlines. I mean, it's pretty obvious that the lawsuits were filed with the sole purpose of making the parents rich anyway. I'm not defending the guy against these charges - some of that stuff is indefensible - but his music is like, 1000 times more significant than any of that. If you didn't like the man fine, you don't have to comment...when Rick James died were you commenting "who cares, he was a druggie"?? What, exactly, is the hypocrisy??

Re: Michael Jackson is DEAD!
"some of that stuff is indefensible - but his music is like, 1000 times more significant than any of that"

some of that stuff? even if only 'some' of that stuff is indefensible, why do you turn round and defend it with his music? does making significant music make paedophilia ok? i take it you're currently childless? there is no comparison to make between being a druggie and being a paedophile. richie james killed himself - hurt himself, no underage kids given alcohol (sorry; 'jesus juice') and encouraged to share a bed with an adult man who admitted to not thinking that that was abnormal. that's pathetic. clinton? you're comparing adultery to paedophilia?! that's beyond ridiculous.

in my eyes, you don't any more negative than paedophilia; so yes - that's what defines him in my eyes. if it was anybody else on the planet he'd be being vilified, and rightly so. are you saying that because of his success in the 70's that gary glitter should be looked upon as anything else than a sick fuck?

'there's no hard evidence that he was attracted to children'? have you spent the last decade in some sort of trance? he paid $22m or so to keep a case out of court. he came right out and said it was fine to share a bed with young boys.

i can comment all i like because the hypocrisy surrounding this stinks to high fucking heaven; and you're displaying it. there is no defence, great music or no great music. best-selling album of all time or no best-selling of all time. i'm not attacking the music he made at his (distant) peak - i'm attacking him as one father attacking another.
