Michael Jackson's Death

3 Years Later

6/25/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062512_jackson_memorial_v2_launch
Today marks the 3-year anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson -- an event that had an impact across the globe.

Tons of lives have been changed since that fateful day ... Conrad Murray went to jail ... MJ's kids have moved in with their grandmother ... numerous doctors have been exposed for sucking up to celebrities and giving them pills they shouldn't have ... and Corey Feldman got another 15 minutes of fame.

Of course, the world mourned together during MJ's memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ... when his daughter Paris choked back tears and said how much she loved her father ... and when Jermaine performed his touching rendition of "Smile."

Michael was eventually laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.

He was only 50-years-old.

I just love how people tend to focus on the fact they STILL think even when the man is buried in a tomb that he molested childred... even though it was already said the two families were trying to extort money in both cases. Such a sad world we are now living in.

Many fans like to denounce the accusations of Michael Jackson trying to turn himself white through bleaching. Vitiligo, which he did have, was often used as the reason for his ever increasing lighter complexion, and some whitening may have been done to even out his appearance along with makeup and tattooing.


Fans will often say that MJ was a proud black man and would not deny his heritage by altering his appearance to be more "white". If that is the case, why didn't he darken his skin instead of lightning it? That could have been done more easily and naturally and with proper use of makeup, his appearance would have looked more normal. Why did he use such hazardous bleaching chemicals and terrible makeup?

Gold diggers lost, Jackson was innocent, even the voices in my head agree with me.

This guy is as bad as Sandusky, if not worse. We should be celebrating his death.

Please take this day to remember victims of child abuse and neglect of all kinds.


Take a few moments to educate yourself and others on the common characteristics of child predators so that hopefully there will be fewer victims in the future. There are far more victims then those that have been exposed in public trials. They often remain silent in fear of their abusers and public opinion.


Educate yourself and educate others on the way these monsters operate because they often walk among us for years and hardly ever see the inside of a jail cell, let alone justice.

I like how LA has a soft stance on child molesters, it seems like Michael gets a pass for touching little boys and giving them wine. Additionally, none of Michael Jackson's kids are biologically his....what a joke.

@Sashanailor They hate Sandusky in LA.

But Michael could dance. Society will forgive a pedophile if he's a really good dancer.

Remember when your parents told you "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it?" Maybe you guys should think about that.

I love how TMZ and many other media outletts try and make this POS out to be something great....he was a pedophile that hated being black so much he had numerous plastic surgery operations to achieve his dream...... of looking like a very old white woman.
