Whatever the cause, it's a sad loss. May he RIP.

I think we will see him ascend to the same level of memory than good old Elvis.

Wasn't never really a big fan of his; But defiantly was in awe of the natural talent and he sure as hell influenced whatever dance talent I had back in my LA 'club' days. I give him full credit for embarishing that awful disco era out of existance! At 54 I'm still trying to get that 'heal spin to full toe stop' move of his down. Tonight with the few extra brews, the PP KT88's MBs, and lots of nostalgia-I came closer than ever before. Thks MJ!

'Money and Fame; neither are to be what they claim'. I hope history is kinder to the man than what life and the media had made of his 'present'. RIP

I think that the events of his later life show that Michael had a much more difficult life than many of us would imagine necessary, given his enormous talent and success. He paid an enormous price in the process of giving very many people a great deal of pleasure.

Despite the strange emotions (mostly puzzlement) his latter behaviour stirs up for me, he certainly did on some occasions 'fill my heart with joy and laughter', and even move me to tears.

Oooh! Just look over your shoulder, Honey!

The boy that sued Michael Jackson is now in jail so I have some doubts about MJ really has done the things he was accused of.

It was settled for an unknown amount which is pretty abnormal. Who chooses for money if you've been abused ? A sane person would fight till the accused is in jail.

The point is when you have money there are a lot of people wanting that money...

Don't cast the stone. I don't believe a single word media spread about pop stars/actors besides obvious (death). It's all money making machine for all participants.

Remember the "Paul McCartney is dead" thing back
in the 60's?
Maybe somebody will spot Michael at a 7-eleven in the
deep south with Elvis in a few years!

Probably together with Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix buying beer for a party.

MJ has just gone off to that secret island with Elvis, Morrison, Princess Di and few others.

But really, talk about a 1,2,3 whammy. Ed McMan, Farrah and MJ. Yikes! The 70's are over. May they RIP.

In the news they have been talking about too much medication from an injury during rehursing on the concert tour

They also say thats its impossible to get a flight ticket due to so many people travelling to LA(?) from all over USA
THAT is a special american thing and something that would never happen around here

To be honest, I always felt sorry for Michael and thought of him as the most unhappy and lonely human being on this planet, and my first thought was "at last he got peace"
