Truly saddened to hear he is dead. But at last he will be at peace. A legend who's talent will always play a part in millions of peoples lives forever. His life was never a normal one from start to finish, a child inside a man,truly misunderstood by the smallminded cynics, who no doubt will try to tarnish his legacy now he has gone. His talent will always outlive it all.God bless and rest in peace.

Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole, Michael Jackson....Lives cut too short by not realizing that perscription drugs are NOT safe. Many of these drugs build up in your fat cells to a toxic level... unfortunately these 'stars' believe that because they're under doctor supervision that somehow it makes it safe. RIP to all

That was cute about using the plastic in michael's face to make Legos. I figured they would use it to make sexual toys for women since he has never been in one.

To answer #117. I don't care actually what you do, or do not, want. No, I wasn't raped as a child, but I don't like freaks who rape babies. If you don't want to read what I have to say, I sugges skipping over it.

They said that when Michael was a little boy, Tatumn O'Neal sexually molested him, mayb thats what bothered him-the only thing I saw bizarre was the Debbie Rowe artificially insemination-she needs to be forced to take a DNA -probably wasnt even her eggs!

The real sad thing is the people here who believe the lies!
It's YOUR fault that you are angry and bitter cuz somebody has more than you!

Michael did not ever molest children. he was found innocent. that mother was busted later trying to blackmail some other celebrity.

The 1993 case was paid off so they would leave him alone. Whats 20 million to someone who had 500 million,
He had very bad and manliputive people and advisors , hanger-ons around him taking advantge of him.

So you people who are happy he is gone are actuallly the saddest and most bitter people in the world and you will die a mean and hateful person with NOBODY at your side.

My deepes and sincere condolences go out to the entire Jackson family; bu most especially Mrs Katherine and Joseph Jackson.I pray for them and his children that they will find peace and comfort in Gods wisdom and mercy.I never had the priveledge of witnessing the Jacksons or Michael perform live,it will always be a regret for me. I feel that Michaels' legacy will be the music, the entertainment, the pure genious of Michael that will endure. To all of his Family, True Friends, and Fans remember the contributions he made to the world through his music, his craft and the contributions to various charities worthwhile causes and to humanity.. We will never know the full reasons behind all the controversy in his life, but we do know that he is one if not the Greatest entertainers in the world and his greatness will never be forgotten.

Do NOT disrespect Farrah, by lumping her death with the likes of that child molester! Farrah's death is a tragedy. MJ's? Not so much.
