Missing Michael Jackson! I pray every day and night that Jehovah let the truth come out regarding his death. If any foul play was involved the person or persons responsible for MJ's death should be dealt with. I also pray that Jehovah will bless, protect and keep MJ's children safe. To: Prince, Paris and Blanket, I know I don't know you, but I have loved your father for over three decades and it's safe to say that I love you also. I pray for you all every night. May Michael's magic be with you forever and may Jehovah's holy spirit guide you in the right direction forever. To: Mrs. Jackson you are indeed a true matriarch.

@ wha: The plastic surgeon (Hoefflin?) is supposed to be releasing a compilation of drawing MJ gave him as gifts, and he said MJ drew lots of pictures of himself as a little boy.

"It does seem to corroborate his preoccupation with his childhood. Because it looks to me like he even wanted to look closer to what he did as a younger child!"

Who made the BIG money off the sale of MJs rehearsal footage?

Sony evidently outbid Columbia, or it changed hands twice.

Read carefully, then reread the current coverage re its sale to Columbia spec. the division of profit.

They awlays say hold for applause like that during these types of rehearsals.

Esp because MJ often sang the entire known song....than added some extra treat at the end.

Miss you boo. RIP

I'm finding it interesting that only a select few have actually seen the rehearsal footage and based on what they saw are shelling out huge sums of money for it. And those who saw it are saying he will win Oscars for it .... I'm really wondering what is in all this footage. They did say he does moonwalk...

I have been following this story she the day he passed.
But the story by Bob Jones really gives insight into what type of man MJ was.
It has really made me rethink MJ as a person.
Yes, he was a great artist, but other areas of his life were just plain wrong.
