6/25/2009 7:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We last got Michael Jackson on the 9th of June in Beverly Hills -- he was in good spirits, telling our photog there's no reason he wouldn't still be able to moonwalk.

Kudos to #25...very nice. I remembered dancing to "ABC" with my BFF in her living room after school. I've been a fan since. Most of us wil never know what living under constant scrutiny would really be like. MJ knew it from very young. Hiding from all people who pat their rent by finding and perpetuating innuendo, rumors, and dirt. I think it would drive most people constantly wondering who they could really trust. Seems like everyone wanted a pice of Michael and his vulnerability made him a target. The more fame, the more it costs for a little privacy, We've seen this over and over, and not that I condone it, but,. I can honestly see why they self-medicate.

I HOPE PEOPLE WILL FOR ONCE HAVE SOME REQUEST,AND ONLY LEAVE POSITIVE COMMENTS ABOUT MICHAEL. HE WAS A TRULY GIFTED PERFORMER, WITH SO MUCH TALENT. I WAS REALLY HOPING, HE WOULD GET HIS HEALTH AND LIFE BACK TOGETHER. FOR ALL THOSE CRITICS, AND NEGATIVE SOULS OUT THERE, WHO I KNOW ARE GOING TO TRASH HIM. REMEMBER WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. HE HAS LEFT THREE SMALL CHILDREN, A LOVING FAMILY, AND MILLIONS OF FANS WHO LOVED HIM. IF YOU DON'T LOVE HIM. DON'T LEAVE A COMMENT. LEAVE THIS SPACE FOR PEOPLE WHO DID CARE ABOUT HIM, WHO DO WEEP FOR THIS LOSS.
WHETHER OR NOT, YOU CONDONED HOW HE LIVED HIS LIFE. OR WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT HIM. NONE OF US KNOW. GOD IS THE ONLY JUDGE. THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH. LOOK AT YOURSELF. FOR WHATEVER PEOPLE THINK HE MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE DONE. YOU DONT KNOW. I DONT KNOW. ONLY GOD DOES. HE IS OUR FINAL JUDGE.
REMEMBER HIS SMILE. THE WAY HE COULD DANCE, AND WRITE, AND PERFORM, LIKE FEW OTHERS, BEFORE OR AFTER HIM!

I never understood that scarf on his face. Was he afraid of germs, or what?

For Michael! ''When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.''

WE ARE CRYING, WE ARE WEEPING. WE ARE SADDEN. I AM SORRY YOU NEVER GOT YOUR COMEBACK,BUT FOR THOSE WHO LOVED YOU. YOU NEVER LEFT. YOU NEVER HAD TO HAVE A COMEBACK. YOU WERE LOVED. YOU WERE NEVER FORGOTTEN,AND NEVER WILL BE.

WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR LOVING FAMILY, AND YOUR FANS. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER LIKE YOU.

FOR ALL THOSE WHO JUDGE, AND CONDEMN. THEY NEVER KNEW YOU,AND NEVER WILL. YOU BROUGHT SO MUCH JOY TO OTHERS. THAT IS WHAT COUNTS. I AM NOT YOUR JUDGE,AND FOR THOSE WHO DO JUDGE, AND SPEAK ABOUT THINGS, THEY NEVER SAW. THE ONES WHO POINT THEIR FINGERS THE MOST, ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE THE MOST TO HIDE. ''People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.''

Michael Jackson: 'The Thrill' Is Gone

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

The thrill is gone
But it’s leaving began so long ago
When a small shy child
Was bullied and pressured so

A personality became distorted
Into a strange place in the mind
Heading further from that thrill
He had just begun to find



Look at the early Michael
At the sheer joy of the dance
At that wondrous talent
Shining at every chance

In those early years he was magic
A tunesmith beyond compare
It was sad to see him falling
Into a quagmire of despair

Oh everyone tried to deny it
Even he put on a brave face
But the distortion staring outLed to his disgrace

With evey resource at his fingertips
He still died not 51
And you know that shouldn’t have happened
His life had just begun

His first albums will stand the test of time
His legend will of course go on
But there are so many questions
Now that 'The Thrill' is gone.

@ John ... I was thinking the same thing Carlos said it is once in a life time that you get to touch Michael Jackson's hand. He'll probably never forget that he got that chance twice. R.I.P. Michael Jackson... I will be praying for his family as well as Farrah's and Ed's. It's a very sad week. They will be missed greatly!
