My husband works for a magazine distribution company and they've already received the notices. Time is just the first of MANY MANY magazines honoring MJ that are coming out next week. Get ready.

Life is a matter of perspective. You either see someone as a drug-addicted pedophile or you see someone as the greatest entertainer and humanitarian of the century. I personally would rather see the glass as half-full. No one is in a position to judge this man. No one is saying that soldiers dying don't deserve magazine covers, and Time has given them plenty. However, Michael Jackson has saved plenty of lives with his humanitarian work and the message of his music. I am one of countless. He was a human being, flawless as all of us are. Last time I checked, both of his accusers had parents with criminal histories of suing for false claims in the past and never stopped changing their stories, hence no jury conviction. Therefore, I am not going to judge. This is a great man who inspired many people, may he rest in peace.

Ann, you have no idea what you're talking about. No one knows the facts about this case yet. (Posted at 2:38PM on Jun 27th 2009 by Ann)


Notasurprise, good points, but there's no reason to trash the deceased.(Posted at 2:40PM on Jun 27th 2009 by Notasurprise)

As for me, I never was a MJ fan... not the man, nor the music. So there's no reason for me to put him on a pedestal now. Why are so many people acting like he was Mother Teresa?

Come on just because he slept with kids gave them "Jesus Juice" dressed like a FRUIT CAKE QUEER doesn't mean he is a child rapist.

He could be incredibly sexy. And it was scary how I felt about him back in the day!

He had just the right mix of anger, sex and talent as an adult performer. As a kid he was sooooooooooo cute! I had his poster right by my Donny Osmond poster in my "Tiger Beat" bedroom back in the 1970s.

They played the "Say Say Say" video last night and I was sobbing buckets of tears over how absolutely HOT he was!

There was something so ethereally beautiful about the combination of his talent and his looks...But then I think the entire family is good looking and talented.

mostpeoplearestupid: I hope the name you chose includes yourself...

In fact, Jacksons own family has stated that his addiction to pain medicines is the probable cause. He had medicines given to him just an hour before he was pronounced dead. Unlike you, I don't think "other" people are necessarily stupid except in your case you have proven me wrong...

Well I too can appreciate what MJ brought to music, but he was also a very odd man with strangeness always around him. He like little boys around him, he left the country to hide when it all went public. I think that Farrah deserves a special edition not MJ! It's too bad that he has over shadowed the loss of Farrah, and she was a wonderful person!

The freaks making money are the doctors he managed to "shop" for multiple prescriptions. They were more interested in making money with no regard to his health, his addictions and ultimately his life.

Here's another freak...the dear Rev. Jesse Jackson, who has to rush to the scene of ANYTHING where he can seize his photo ops and open his big mouth.

Time is putting out a special issue and a lot of people will buy it, and a lot of people would have expected it. There's a demand.

Some of you are confused as to who the freaks are.

WOW, will wonders ever cease. A Time cover without obama on it. WOW, a miracle here and now. I am SO pleased not to have to gaze upon the community agitator this month.
