Museum of Dance -- Making Room for MJ Tribute

7/24/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson won't just get a plaque when he's inducted into the Hall of Fame at the National Museum of Dance next month ... dude is getting an entire garden -- thanks to a band of passionate fans.

TMZ has learned museum officials have agreed to make space for a permanent garden to honor the late icon -- after an MJ fan group informed employees that an influx of flowers would be headed their way on the day MJ will be enshrined. 

So, instead of just letting the flowers die ... the museum's honchos -- along with a local florist -- decided to construct a permanent garden in MJ's honor on the museum's grounds.

There's a tiny catch -- the MJ fan group is gonna have to foot the bill for the garden -- and the size of the garden will be determined by how much cash they raise.

hey Mymjj5

i dont know about that, Mymjj5. even when the kids arrived, MJ, to this day has control. the world is filled with people believing he died. the media has sold us yet again on spins, just like this site. but, there are people that feel within themselves that HE did not die. i personally feel that the career of the entertainer, Michael Jackson has died, not the man. the last concert was titled "This Is it" well, that sums it up for me. He is ready to embark on his final career choice. Film.

and might i quote Jerry Seinfeld...

*"if you believe the media/tabloids, then you deserve to be lied too".

and to the infamous P.T Barnum, who created the Greatest show on earth...

*"There is a sucker born every minute". and he coined that phrase when someone lied about something he was going to do in one of his shows, and P.T just went along with the nonsense, why fight it?? it created a buzz for his shows.

(*not you of course, my dear Mymjj5. but people in general)

If the paypal account is not working you can call 518-584-3470. She is closed until Tuesday. The paypal is connected to her Facebook account, so it might now work for everyone if you don't have an account. Sorry we weren't thinking about that when she set it up that way. All donations go directly to the landscape artist and 100% go to the Garden.

@ Juan

The agenda to continually fatten their pockets no matter what. Not to mention how MJ became outspoken against the perils of the entertainment industry. No more childish demeanor. Michael Jackson had developed into a mature adult who dared to voice his opinion about the morally bankrupt and corrupt music industry.

exactly. it was, and is profitable for all involved, including MJ. He became the success He is with their help. look at all the other singers and groups back in the day, that suffered at the hands of THEM, MJ included. Now people like Prince the artist, is being recognized for his music. Earth Wind and Fire has been included in the new "We Are The World" song, i can actually order "Motown Sounds" from the Time Warner Company and the "Soul Train" dvds, with exclusive footage of the Jackson 5 and our fondest member, Michael Jackson. thanks to someone that pushed them to the side, because it was ordained that "MJ RULE" the industry. ok, so he voiced his ideas, his opinions on them and they felt like he defected? its because of MJ, mottola was fired. i call that power!

and i do LOVE MJ, without a doubt.

"lets call this song song exactly what it is... what it is 3x"

Suffocated

In the beginning it was worth this
Do the worst, feel complete
Passing standards others meet
(What we do best)
Now perfect endings make you anxious
Heavy head, a colder sweat
Leaving nothing here, nothing to regret

Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive
Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive

I miss the old days that we murdered
They're so far gone, out of reach
Watch 'em fade with summer's heat
(Well it goes like this)
Without a break from this distraction
I need a change, a different scene
A new approach to coming clean

Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive
Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive

Still searching for a back door out of here
Reassured that old friends will reappear
Why am I still suffocating
Just hold your breathe deep and I'll keep waiting

Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive
Why am I still suffocating
Constantly devastated just to stay alive

Hi db!

"Now, why would an intelligent person as yourself hold onto that CRAZY notion that MJ isn't Alive BS when you should know full well that MJ ISN'T DEAD???

as far as "SHOW ME YOUR PROOF"....you need to research and arrive at that decision on your own.

I'm only ashamed that I wasn't intelligent enough to arrive at that decision 6 months before I actually did...(btw..a 6 month goose chase)...but then they did put together a rather complex game...a game of deception.

Later db
Peace & Understanding

JoeJ and Majestik weren't at Holmby that night for no reason.

Joe didn't feel unabashed for showing NO remorse at BETS...why should he have?.....(I just thought he was a callous heartless bastard....for months I thought that! Wrong, tellit)
Although he is still a sorry lying callous evil bastard. But let's face it....it runs in the family)

DB...when you're dealing with a game of illusion and deception (such as this one)...it's difficult to come up with "PROOF"....(illusion doesn't = proof)...the object/purpose of a game of illusion/deception is....NO PROOF. WINNER TAKE ALL.

PEOPLE, BEWARE OF SENDING MONEY: WHO IS "SHE"?
61. If the paypal account is not working you can call 518-584-3470. She is closed until Tuesday.

PEOPLE: Before you send money to anyone's Facebook account, make sure it's legitimate. Since the TMZ link is broken, I would suggest that anyone who wants to donate contact the museum directly and ask them how to ensure that your donation goes specifically to the MJ garden and exactly where to send it. Their contact info is:

http://dancemuseum.org/

The National Museum of Dance
99 South Broadway
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Phone 518.584.2225
Fax 518.584.4515
