Michael Jackson
passed away 4 years ago today -- you probably forgot ... but MJ's biggest fans definitely did not, leaving massive piles of flowers outside the King of Pop's mausoleum today.

To give you an idea, one MJ fan group -- called "One Rose for Michael Jackson" -- donated more than 10,000 roses to the grave site.

A rep for Forest Lawn cemetery tells TMZ, fans will continue to be allowed to place flowers at MJ's grave throughout the day ... and the flowers will remain on site for the rest of the week.

TMZ broke the story ... Jackson died from a fatal dose of Propofol on June 25th, 2009. His doctor is currently in jail.

The Hater's should watch the program "Life Of An Icon" by David Gest on BET - then they would see that the Allegations were False and an attempt at Extortion. But they won't! They want instead to post & spread the Lies about Michael and post their Hate-Filled comments instead of seeking out the Truth!

The following passage is by bestselling author and former publicist, Howard Bloom, on his brief experience working with Michael in the mid-1980s. I think it beautifully describes the magic that was Michael Jackson. Enjoy!

We were all bunched together on the opposite side of the pool table from the art director. Michael was in the center. I stood next to him on his left. And the brothers were crowded around us on either side. The CBS art director slid the first of the portfolios toward Michael. He opened the first page, slowly … just enough to see perhaps an inch of the image. As he took in the artwork his knees began to buckle, his elbows bent, and all he could say was “oooohhhhh.” A soft, orgasmic “ooooh.” In that one syllable and in his body language, you could feel what he was seeing.

Do you know the poem by William Blake –

To see a World in a grain of sand,
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour . . .

The intense ambition of that poem, the intense desire for wonder, was alive in Michael. More alive than anything of the sort I’d ever seen. Michael saw the infinite in an inch. As Michael opened the page further, inch by inch, his knees and elbows bent even more and his ”ooohs,” his sounds of aesthetic orgasm, grew even more intense. Standing elbow to elbow and shoulder to shoulder with him, you could feel him discovering things in the brush and inkstrokes that even the artist never saw. By the time he’d opened the full page his body and voice expressed an ecstasy. An aesthetic epiphany. I’d never encountered anything like it. Michael felt the beauty of the page with every cell of his being.

I’ve worked with Prince, Bob Marley, Peter Gabriel, Billy Joel, and Bette Midler, some of the most talented people of our generation, and not one of them had the quality of wonder that came alive in Michael. He saw the wonder in everything. His quality of wonder was beyond anything most of us humans can conceive.

Look, above all other things I’m a scientist. Science is my religion. It’s been my religion since I was ten years old. The first two rules of science are 1) the truth at any price including the price of your life; and 2) Look at the things right under your nose as if you’ve never seen them before and then proceed from there. And that’s not just a rule of science. It’s a rule of art. And it’s a rule of life. Very few people know it. Even fewer people live it. But Michael was it, he incarnated it in every follicle of his being. Michael was the closest I’ve ever come to a secular angel. A secular saint.

Look, I’m an atheist, but Michael was not. He believed he was given a gift by God. He believed he was given talents and wonders and astonishments seldom granted to us very fragile human beings. Because God had given him this enormous gift, he felt he owed the experience of wonder, astonishment, awe, and Blake’s infinities to his fellow human beings. But unlike other generous humans–Bill and Melinda Gates, for example–with Michael giving to others was not just a part-time thing. The need to give to others was alive in every breath he took every single day.

Michael Jackson’s entire life was receiving and giving and the whole purpose of receiving was so he could give. He worked with every cell in his body to give the gift of that amazement, that astonishment to his fellow human beings.

I'm sure the Jackson family will sue every florist that they don't get a percentage from.


Spend that money fools.


I wonder if they are going to graciously donate MJ's flowers from his grave site to the elderly again. "Grandma, Grandpa... Here's some flowers from someone else's grave. You should be honored."

The fans always fail to mention MJ's biggest enemy.
The person who brought him the most grief.
The one that did him the most physical and mental harm.
The one that was responsible for there being accusations of child molestation.
The one that was ultimately responsible for his death.


That person was Michael Jackson.


Fingers can be pointed every which way but MJ was ultimately responsible for his own life because of the way he chose to live it.

I've been crying all day, such a memorable day when all the anti-child-abuse supporter gather and the pedo fire is getting bigger by the minutes. Burn, let it burn, another successful year, and it is so significant when hardly any rabid dares to show their ugly molestation faces. Well, I've heard they are all rounded up the FBI - Hooray, hooray, hooray, three cheers and bottom up!!!
