I can't believe they've released this...so sad. Michael was seriously hurt and I can't see where his hair on the top of his head could ever grow back. Must have been all the oil in his hair.

He kept dancing. He didn't even know he was on fire. Amazing.

Holy cow! They never let on how bad it really was. I'd expect that he probably didn't have hair there anymore. Thats horrible.

Why?    

That's really sick. I'm a voyeur and love US weekly, TMZ and the other pap mags/sites but even I think that is going a little overboard. It made my stomach turn to watch.
