Oh pleez    

John Mayer needs to get a life. How was he connected to MJ? Pitiful, the guy needs to get a life. He's a loser. I feel like crying. Michael why did you have to leave us?

This is very disappointing. The family should have had a 2 day public viewing and then privately buried Michael. We didn't need a damn concert, we wanted a public viewing to pay our respects. This is so contrary to what Michael always said about his fans, this would have saved the family time and headaches while grieving but at the same time I think it would have provided some joy in seeing just how much Michael was loved.

Michael meant so much to me and to the world, now..... The people who "make" the news not "report" the news made this man leave his country and his home he loved so dearly. The corporate media tore Michael down because he was a unifier and wanted to heal the world literally. He wanted to bring the world together through music, and he did! That scared the certain figures in our world that look to control us all by having us fight amongst each other while they fulfill their ultimate agendas. If Michael were to continue his wave of love that he spread infectiously throughout the world then the people would have realized the truth and we would have had world peace!!! I believe Michael was the ultimate unifier. He broke barriers and paved the way for beautiful world. I am so devastated by the loss of the most beautiful man in the world. He really was a great part of my life and my memories, I feel like I have lost a brother. The triumph and tragedy that is Michael Jackson had left a hole in my heart that is beyond repair at this time... Please continue Michael's work... Thats what he would really want us to do. HEAL THE WORLD!!! No more war, no more violence, no more corruption, no more starving and sick children!!! Please educate yourselves and learn the truth behind why our world is in its current state! Start with 9/11 and go from there!

Jesse and Rev Al, are just like Jon and Kate - publicity whores waiting for any opportunity to be in the limelight no matter the occasion. Can we please just get this overwith and move on. The man, as talented as he was, was a tragedy waiting to happen.

I sent an e-mail to Barry Gibbs thanking him for being one of Michaels true-blue friends...they were very close and he has never come out and spoke about their friendship when all the other 'close friends' were climbing over one another to get on a show or release a statement. I don't know how many of these people on the list were his friends, but if they were and we didn't know about it I would say they were a very good friend. Again, thank you Barry and to all others that were there for him and didn't sell their soul to the devil!

THE MEMORIAL IS STARTING TO LOOK LIKE A FARCE TO ME.

HIS BODY WILL NOT EVEN BE THERE. HIS FAMILY AND HIS FRIENDS MAY NOT EVEN BE THERE.

FAKE MEMORIAL.

IT SHOULD BE AN OPEN CASKET SHOULD FANS CAN SEE THAT HE IS TRUELY GONE.

ANYTHING ELSE IS JUST A 'SHOW'.

DISAPPOINTED IN THIS MEMORIAL!

Will Forest Lawn (where he will be buried tomorrow before the staples chaos) let all you hundreds of millions of idiot fans in to tear up the grounds after tomorrow? This guy killed HIMSELF, so those of you singing his praises and telling him to "rest in peace" need to get a grip, stop living in denial, and realize the truth: that he was a WACKO. Move on with your simple, retarded lives. Oh maybe you won't be able to do that until the toxicology report from his autopsy comes back, showing that HE KILLED HIMSELF with drugs so he could, "get a good night's sleep." No rest for the wicked.....no doubt he is rotting in hell even as I type this.

Wow, what happened to he Celebrity friends? Everyone thinks that this his going to be a huge deal, that they are going to have him there in his coffin. Didn't the Mayors aid announce this morning they are laying him to rest BEFORE the ceremony. This could be very anti-climactic, not the huge hyped deal the media has been selling. Tomorrow will be very interesting. I think the real story will be the long lines at Forest Lawn to pass by his grave when they finally open the site for vewing.

Wow, I thought the famous Vienna Boy's Choir would surely be there. I know Michael helped a lot of little boys hit the high notes.

What a sad public display. Kobe Bryant? What is he the token rapist?

This has turned into "concert" BS. How can these pseudo entertainers (with the exception of a couple) do Michael any justice? You don't bring in the mutts to honor a thoroughbred.
