Who gives a flying f.u.c.k. about other "celebs"? Michael Jackson is /the/ news at the moment and deserves all the coverage. All you losers waiting to find out if Lindsay Lohan has been knocking on Sam Ronson's vag door at 3am again will have to wait.

If it was a white guy we would have heard a little the day he dies and that would it.

It's about time TMZ starts reporting on something other than MJ. Pretty soon you are gonna have to change this site from TMZ to TMJ.

Yes he is dead and I agree he needs to just be buried, his family left in peace to their own business and move on. But, the fans would really like to know, what happened. Whether it is he did od, or if it was foul play, or accidental, or whatever. Point being, once that's provided, his fans will always be curious and depend on TMZ to provide us with that information. Eventually it will all die down, as everything does. So until then, if people aren't interested in how TMZ is running their website, they can always go somewhere else. It's very clear, that they are focused on MJ news, so it's obvious if you are TIRED of the MJ news, to go somewhere else. It's as simple as typing in another website, instead of TMZ. Everything will calm down eventually and come back to normal, but we lost a very HUGE, influential individual in our society. And a lot of people are just curious to know what happened and what's going on, as we're unfortunately not able to get this kind of information without coming to such a website like TMZ.

Honestly, if I was one of those complaining about too much MJ news on TMZ, I would just not visit the website, until all the MJ hype has died down.

Sorry About Your Damn Luck    

there is no one else better to save the day then The HOT ROD! He knew everyone was in need of a break from Jacko so he decided to give us somethin else to talk about. Usually back in the 80's and 90's it was the Hulkster who ran in to save the day, but now a days he is too busy gettin stoned and messing around with his 23 yr old gf. But whatya do? Hey maybe the next post will be Santino Marella coming out and admitting he is Santina Marella also.

P.S. Rosemary dont be bashing The HOT ROD. He gave all his blood sweat and tears to the business, he can do what he wants.

I am rather happy this isnt a Mj story. I am getting rather sick of hearing about MJ this and MJ that. I could careless, but tmz is turning into a MJ site. I want real celeb storys. What about Farrah? What about Ed? And Billy Mays? Did everyone forget about them? Must have, I'm not a big fan of MJ but I'll be glad when this is over. And for Roddy Piper I remember him wresting back in the day.
