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.

TMZ did a story on the tanning Mom, they should do a story on Paris jackson, and all the tanning and fake tanning spray her "family" uses on her to try to darken her complexion.

That's nice black curly hair you have there sweetie.

srsly    

You don't hyphenate "50-years-old." You hyphenate "50-year-old man" but not the former. I see that so often here. TMZ writers need to take a grammar course.

wow    

Hard to believe Michael's gone three years. Still remember where I was when the news came in and the shock. Weird how some celebrities don't get that come back they're working towards. Will remember Michael with music today.

It is still unbelievable. Michael is gone too soon.
And this is a message for callous, unfeeling posters who say "Move On;" there is no such thing as closure for those who are left behind after a death. Would you look a child, a mother, a brother, a father in the eye and tell them to "move on?"

What an ignorant, inappropriate and stupid thing to post.
