So, how does this relate to the death of Michael Jackson? Was Roddy drinking because he was upset over the death, drowning his sorrows? I don't get it. We need answers... there's no reason for this story unless it's directly connected to Michael Jackson and his demise!

But what about Michael? Did Roddy know where they are burying Michael? Who is Roddy`s Dr? Did the DR give Roddy the sip, sip.

Piper tried to force me to put on a pair of dark sunglasses once so I had to kick his ass. He kept screaming "They arent HUMAN !!". No wonder he drinks so much.

missing you mj!    

Some of you people are clueless. Michael Jackson is the big news right now and 95% of the readers on here, wait patiently to see an update about him. When it's all over, other celebs can come back and contribute whatever nonsensical news they want to. But right now, it's all about MJ. It's so much about MJ, that unfortunately anything that's not about MJ is quite mediocre. So, just live with it. If you don't want to see anything about MJ, go to another website, simple as that. Stop coming to TMZ.com, during the time you KNOW VERY WELL it will be only about MJ and complaining about it. Clearly they find his news to be the most interesting and important, as the rest of us, so they'd keep posting it until it all dies down. Get over it, find another site, and shut up. =)

I have no idea who the heck Roddy Piper is, but I sincerely thank him for getting a DUI and thereby having ONE story on TMZ that is not MJ related.

Wait a minute TMZ, was a cousin of MJ's involved? a parent? honestly is there a TMZ story that doesn't have MJ in it? perhaps he was drinking because he was so sad about MJ's passing?

He *deserves* to be busted - for taking up valuable MJ space on this-here website. This is an outrage.
