Very starnge, seems like the memorial didnt really have his closets friends, just aquanitinces. Where was Ross, Minelli, his lawyer friends, Marlon Brandos son, Lisa Marie Presley. Elizabeth Talyor... I dont think he had many true-friends, but seems odd that his closest friends either where not invited, or chose to stay away.

I thought her comments were very touching. I think it is wonderful that MJ had a friend he could be silly with. Even if they had been in touch in years obviously the family felt their bond was special.

So true#32,but this is what happens when these people lose reality and start thinking they are above it all and surrounds themselves with yes people. Elvis did it and MJdid it.Too bad he and Brooke did not stay in contact.She MADE herslef live in reality (Princeton,marraige,regular friends ...

I believer that MJ is finally at peace. It saddens me though that his family and especially his kids have to suffer through this. He was the BEST entertainer of our time, extremely talented and very kind hearted and the world will miss him. Those that think and/or speak evil things of him, shame on you. The man did good for many, many all over the world and mostly for kids. He just had a true, innocent, kind, heart for kids because he never had a childhood and wanted to make other kids happy. he was also trying to create all the things in his life that he missed growing up by creating Neverland for himself and others to enjoy. I wish I could have known him personally. RIP MJ!

She spoke about him and it was very touching. Couldn't they find someone who had spoken to him in the last year?

Her appearance at the memorial was a sham, a fraud, and an acting job. She hadn't seen or spoken to Michael since 1991? Yeah, that's a real good friend there. Why was she up on stage acting like she was his best friend and that they had so many good memories? I wish the Jackson family told her to scram, she was one of the few black marks on today's events. She was there to get publicity, that was it.

I want to personally thank Brooke for the touching words about MJ. It's comforting to know that he had someone like you in his life to make him smile. I often wondered who brought joy into his life. He's given so much of himself to all the world and he deserved so much in return. His life was a stage and I can only hope he found more love than he so unselfishly gave.

Speculate to break the one you hate
Circulate the lie you confiscate
Assassinate and mutilate
As the hounding media in hysteria
Who's the next for you to resurrect
JFK exposed the CIA
Truth be told the grassy knoll
As the blackmail story in all your glory

It's slander
You say it's not a sword
But with your pen you torture men
You'd crucify the Lord
And you don't have to read it, read it
And you don't have to eat it, eat it
To buy it is to feed it, feed it
So why do we keep foolin' ourselves

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Though everybody wants to
read all about it
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
They say he's homosexual

In the hood
Frame him if you could
Shoot to kill
To blame him if you will
If he dies sympathize
Such false witnesses
Damn self righteousness
In the black
Stab me in the back
In the face
To lie and shame the race
Heroine and Marilyn
As the headline stories of
All your glory

It's slander
With the words you use
You're a parasite in black and white
Do anything for news
And you don't go and buy it, buy it
And they won't glorify it, 'fy it
To read it sanctifies it, 'fies it
Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Everybody wants to read all about it
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
See, but everybody wants to
believe all about it

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
See, but everybody wants to
believe all about it
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
She's blonde and she's bisexual

Scandal
With the words you use
You're a parasite in black and white
Do anything for news
And you don't go and buy it, buy it
And they won't glorify it, 'fy it
To read it sanctifies it, 'fies it
Why do we keep foolin' ourselves
Slander
You say it's not a sin
But with your pen you torture men
Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves

Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
Though everybody wants to
read all about it
Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual
See, but everybody wants to
read all about it

Just because you read it in a magazine

You're so damn disrespectable

I do feel Brooke was being sincere. I'm 38 and there are people I have not seen since 1991 that I would feel that moved about if I had to speak at their funeral.
Who can say why they drifted apart? It isn't important to know that and not helpful to speculate.
Her eulogy meant so much because it demystified Michael Jackson and I think that is crucial to seeing him as a whole person. So much of what we think we know about Michael Jackson was hype. If we are honest with ourselves, you know that is true.

DeepBlue, you asked "couldn't they have found someone who had spoken to him in the past year."
Unfortunately, that's a big part of the reason why he died in the first place. He was a recluse. There is reason to believe that people around him towards the end were enablers to allow him to put his health at risk. These are not real friends of the sort that you would want them to speak at your funeral.
