Sounds to me Chico you are upset Michael didn't do you? Now that he's gone, perhaps you can find someone else.

Way to go, DeMar!!! You should have chosen Jam, but I guess that would've been too obvious. :D

TMZ was wrong again, the slam dunk contest was boring and DeMar
DeRozan did not incorperate any of Michael Jacksons moves in any of his dunks.

15 you are SICK!!!!!! Michael has never been into that but, if that is what you think then...... I would never let my children be anywhere near you... Ignorance and disgusting... I would allow my children to sleep in the same bed as Michael... He would not even hurt a flea... Did you not see the truth behind him saying he would slit his rist before hurting a child? He was statein the facts, he was honest and that came from his soul,,,, here check this out and if you cant see the pain.... You have no soul.....

Leave Joe ALONE!!!!
13, no you dont..... Michael probablly got really mad at hearing that one.... You just made me really sad.... My daughter when she turned 5 was touched, wish that upon nobody!!!! I wanted to slaughter the hand that did it.... I gave up my home because, my daughter I could not handle her being near where that happened.... Do not ever say that what you said.. That is awful... I dont think you thought before you spoke..

Michael deserves honor, I wish he were here to see the extent of the love of fans around the world and honestly I still feel that he's here with us ... I love Michael with all my heart, my love goes beyond life.
