Michael Jackson...two words that will forever be a part of Music History. It is unbelievable that as I type this I sit here remembering how this man influenced me and many of my friends to pursue our dreams of fame and fortune in the music business. From copying his signature moves to imitating his percussive vocalizing (chicka, chicka, uh, uh shumone, daht, Hee Hee Heeeee), his legacy lives on in generations of fans who loved him.

R.I.P. MJ

Fame and hypersensationalism ruined Michael Jackson's perception of himself. I never felt like he could live up to the success of "Thriller" and was constantly trying to match that "kind of" achievement- no doubt the record companies wanted more of the same- which will also ruin an artists life and probally did.

His appearance scared me- it was a testament to reality and what happens after commercialization alters ones life. I have no or little respect for those around him that never helped. Where was Oprah and Suzie Orman when he needed financial advice. People like Justin Timberlake are imitations- Michael was an original, its true that others feed off famous people- I always thought Justin Timberlake wanted something for himself from M.Jackson: dance moves, fans, notoriety.

I thought Madonna's feeble attempts to cash in on the publicity from Michael Jackson were horrid. From her altered kiss scene on MTV with Brittney Spears reminiscent of the Lisa Marie Presley+ Michael Kiss- to her crotch grabbing acts- and her positioning of seating this past tour- legs spread like the "Scream" video. Getting that high pitch in the studio is also work for some of these- wanna be's.

Michael Jackson's music is everywhere today- his physical appearance no longer weighs the sound down. And the "famous" entertainers who imitate him should be kareoke singers. Long live fame and the ignorance that surrounds its acquisition.

I hope people remember there is a family deeply wounded by this. Respect and privacy is something they deserve. I know Mr. Jackson is at peace, singing and dancing with all the greats lost before. My prayers are for his family who are sure to be hounded by media and haters. Please let them be. My tears are flowing..........

$400 million in debt, a tarnished reputation with the brand of "pedophile", a supposed comeback taking place in England only with an emphasis on his "final shows - his final curtain call" and now $85 million in ticket sales that may not be returned to concert-goers, or perhaps they might, dependent on how he died. Bodyguards and an entourage keep the public from seeing Michael Jackson in his own back yard and yet they allow an aerial shot of the body that could have easily been moved without being seen and a newscaster announcing that the body being seen was in fact the body of Michael Jackson - who elses would it be? Where is the emotion in a family member doing a press conference about his youngest brother dying just hours ago? At a time with numerous lawsuits and debt, death washes all of that away and death by cardiac arrest as opposed to suicide keeps the life insurance payout in play. Tell me: Is Michael Jackson really dead or did he just pull off the most famous disappearing act of all time?
