Did Everyone Really Love Michael Jackson? (I'm Confused)

    I think time will tell how big MJ's talent was, how much of his music is still around in 20 years from now.

    Personally I did not go much on his stuff, I recognize he had talent, but somehow his music did not move me.

    I still wish that he hadn't been so screwed up by his lack of a childhood etc. with his obvious talents he could have gone on to great things if he had ever reached maturity.

    What amused me was how MJ tried to act tough, like a real man from the hood. He was "Bad". Yeah, right.

    I liked the Old MJ, before he got all farked up.

    I loved his talent. I grew up listening to MJ. Their first hit was when I was 3 or 4. I used to watch their cartoons on Saturday morning and their variety show (on whatever night it came on). During one of my fondest memories of going to LA as a child "Let Me Show You the Way to Go" was playing on the car radio. It was such a LA song. Every time I hear it I think of that time.

    I went to 2 Jackson concerts, the last was the best, it was just after Michael came out with his first solo album. My father took my sister and I and two of our friends. We had a blast and danced all night (Dad sat the whole time).

    When Triller came out, my sister and I saw the video on a big screen at a mall. We were so exicted. I bought the album and my father told me to throw it out. I defied him and told him no. Kept the album, might still have it.

    The last song I like by MJ was "Remember The Time", that song reminds me of the time when I met my hubby and when we used to go out dancing. Hubby was a wonderful dancer, I hope one day he will be healthy enough to dance again.

    There were times that I wished I could have had the opportunity to walk up and MJ and slap him and tell him to grow up and snap out of that shit. I wonder if anyone ever told him no when he became an adult. I remember an interview where Lisa Marie Presley said that MJ little voice wasn't so little in private, that is was a front to keep the Peter Pan persona going. All the plastic surgery, he didn't need. He was a gorgeous young black man before he started in on that crap. Too bad he didn't know it.

    I feel bad for Farrah Fawcett's friends and family. It's been all about Michael.

    Well maybe that's a good thing. Too bad she wasn't given the peace she needed to deal with her condition before she died.

    "You know, they're gonna jack off, watch movies, drink wine, you know. And, you know, he doesn't even really qualify as a pedophile. He's really just this regressed 10-year-old."

    Ok and this was the statement to SUPPORT him in court by the psychologist!!!! The man was a pedo, if he had been just some creepy sick guy living under a bridge near the elementary school just because he wanted to be with the kids? But at one point he could sing so I guess it's ok? You people defending him need to think, what if the SAME evidence had been brought against an elder at the hall?

    He did have a lot of problems, Depak chopra blamed not only prescriptions but being a jw messing him up.....

    I did love his music the thriller album really was great!

    I appreciated Michael's talent--and nobody denies he was talented. I also appreciated how he let his freak flag fly and didn't care who saluted it. I've got a freaky side myself but do not have the guts to let it fly in front of just anybody. I wish I did though.

    As far as the charges of pedophile, he was found not guilty by a jury. I don't know if he was guilty or not. I do believe that like all of us, he had beautiful traits and some ugly ones.

    The guy is dead and he left behind some incredible music. I say let him rest in peace.
