scum bag TMZ    

oh really, because everyone else is reporting their recording their speech on saturday and it will be a video tape shown at the awards.

we really don't believe anything TMZ says or posts anymore. You lie because MJ stories are the only thing that gets your website any hits. All about MJ! What would you do without him, HA!

A Lifetime Achievement Award - too bad Michael Jackson couldn't have finished his lifetime. He certainly crammed a lot into the life he had though. I will be glued to my TV set this year and, if his kids are there live or on video, what a tremendous honor for us to witness the occasion. I'm sure their dad would be so very proud of them even though he protected them ferociously from being in the spotlight. Michael Jackson and his music will live on, despite comments borne only from ignorance and hate. We could all learn from his messages, his charity and his songs of humanity (as we will see on Sunday). I feel very fortunate to have been a part of his generation; very sad he wasn't able to complete his dreams. RIP Michael Jackson.

God Bless Prince, Paris and Blanket. I am thrilled to be able to see their maturity and hear the words they have to share about their father. They ARE Michael's living legacies. God Bless them!

Much L.O.V.E. to MJ3
