Janet Jackson, Rihanna and other stars headed to Twitter Saturday to remember Michael Jackson on the second anniversary of his tragic death.

On June 25, 2009, the music world and fans of the King of Pop everywhere were shaken by news of his passing, after Michael suffered a cardiac arrest due to an overdose of propofol.

His doctor, Conrad Murray, was later charged with involuntary manslaughter for purportedly administering the powerful sedative. Murray's trial date has been set for September 8.

Despite the many controversies surrounding his life and death, the iconic music star will always be known for his talent, the award-winning music he left behind and the many artists he will continue to inspire for years to come.

Check out what his family and celebrity fans—including a Glee star set to take the stage at Michael's "last intended venue"—had to say:

Janet Jackson: I MISS U. I LUV U.

Rihanna: MJ We miss you, We love you...often imitated, NEVER duplicated!!! You will live on forever!

Big Boi: R.I.P. Michael Jackson... Damn 2 years.

Darren Criss: Two years ago Michael Jackson died and I had JUST moved to LA. Now I'm playing at the O2 in London, his last intended venue. What a trip.

Latoya Jackson: I read a lot of your tweets and a lot of you are so sad, Michael would want you to rejoice his life! Please do so! Rejoice the kings music!

Usher: MJ....REST THE DEAD!! You live on through what you blessed us all with. Your compassion and dedication compels us to be our greatest...URIV

The red jacket is an obvious rip off of MJ's famous red jacket. This guy and the other brother's are talentless and should start training for real jobs pronto, and stop making children they can't (and won't) support.

Bah! I'm surprised he's not wearing a glove too!
MJ was the one...all the Jacksons fed off MJ anyway they could. Tunes, rhythms, shows, and just loverly being the relatives with their hands out wanting, expecting & demanding more. It would stress me out too, knowing your being used over and over again, where's the love...exactly? Now, they don't need MJ approval anymore. The Jacksons just have to keep MJ in the spotlight or they'll lose their money train $$$$. The parents, all the siblings doing what ever they can contribute to gain $$$ off of keeping MJ publicized. Now we got his children too, ugh! Who can give a crap, MJ is dead, done and way over and out. HELLO!

And as for this tribute to MJ.. give me a freaking break! Jermaine will do anything and sing anywhere to get money and attention. Also can you really blame people and the media for talking about MJ the way they did. He was a good entertainer, but the guy was weird and did a lot of crazy and weird things over the years that of course would attract so much negative attention.

@Chinee (yeah right)

Clearly you don't know what you're talking about. Whereas michael was made a spectacle of around the world his entire family was not. I've said it countless times that black american media did not trash michael's life the way the major networks and tabloids did. If you did not read or follow Michael Jackson and the Jacksons via Johnson Publishing you are totally ignorant to the 40 years of total support the company gave to Michael Jackson. Michael trusted them completely and they NEVER LET HIM DOWN.......not even once!!!!
Truth be told, you don't care about Jermaine one way or the other. Nor did you follow his solo career during his hey day....quit trippin. You more than likely don't like any of his recordings and couldn't name one of his songs. There are millions of people who remember those songs and liked them very much. Grow up or grow a pair. You don't know the true history and significance of the Jacksons.

The major media nets went above and beyond the call of duty to distort and defame Michael for at least two decades. It was a media priority campaign to hurt Michael and they took pride in his demise. From reading your post, people like you were happy about it too.
Of course I thought there was a possibility that Michael was guilty. The untrained eye would believe the allegations as written in the petition as evidence. Nothing could convince them otherwise including a lack of evidence and the truth. There simply was no proof of his guilt. Only accusations, allegations and very strong language being passed off as evidence...... when no evidence existed.
Only after his passing did you hear: don't say or release anything that portrays Mr. Jackson in a negative way......then watch the major networks comply with that request...............................pleazzzzz!

Jermaine did not get a fee from this performance, if you people had some brains or knowledge, award shows don't pay, and even if he did, so what, if this was any other artist like usher, or jay z you will not be saying anything, you are pathetic....
