Michael Jackson, to quote a lyric from one of your songs...I want you to know, “You are not alone.” Not anymore. I believe you are now, the angel in heaven you sought so hard to be here on earth. You were so misunderstood, vilified, and beat upon. There was so much mockery and hatred of you, for only one reason. You’re goodness; your luminosity into the beautiful heart you believed could be in every man. You had such generosity, and tried so hard to teach others, to look into the soul; and to not judge based on color, creed or class.
But darkness, doesn’t like beauty to shine. It detracts so much from what it is trying to do. Create dark humanless souls of us all. To replace the radiance that was born within all of us, by God. You spoke of nothing, but love and peace. Your light through your words, and music shone so bright. You’ve brought so much too so many, but only sought pure love for yourself. Your sensitivity brought ridicule. When all you wished most of all was to be embraced and understood. You had such a creative, gentle, kind spirit.
I think what personally stood out to me most of all; was your tender nature. Envy in other people mistook that for weakness, when in reality it is strength. The force of who you were was so strong. Many people wish to have that, but could never achieve it. So they became jealous and spiteful towards your achievements.
We are all afforded different opportunities in life. Instead of being envious, they should have rejoiced with you, in your success and in your life.

There was an earlier post stating that the home was owned by the Nation of Islam and it was they who were charging him the exorbitant monthly rental rate of $100,000. Ummm. So when did Guez convert?

Hey TMZ,

We are SICK of this ridiculous, non-stop coverage of Michael Jackson's death.

The rest of the world continues to spin.

It's long past time to move on.

It was not enought for him to put his face next to Michaels right after his dead. He might have known Michael but not for long, he paid him to come to his birthday party. Even bad publicity is publicity.

the truth hurts huh    

Aren't there laws about not running a business establishment in a home in a totally residential area? Especially Holmby Hills!!! If so - I hope this guy's groping for publicity backfires on his idiot a$$.

This whole circus is disgusting. The only people in this whole mess that I feel sorry for are the children. At this point I imagine that as soon as the eldest turns 18, he should take custody of his siblings and wash his hands of everyone remotely involved in this family, or anyone currently using this death to self promote.

Christian Audigier is a douche bag, He makes some pretty purses and awesome shoes(Which I will still wear proudly LOL). But dammit..that's awful he's already trying to cash in on MJ! What's next? Is he going to buy Jon and Kate's house, because jon wears his clothing? The dumbass.
