      I say we elevate the following and give them the same world praise that little michael is receiving.
      Stevie Ray Vaughn
      Lane Staley
      Kurt Cobain
      Jim Croce
      Ronnie Van Zandt
      Duane Allman
      Dime Bag Darrell
      Tommy Bolin
      i could go on & on. these guys were real musicians, not some plastic princess grabbing his balls and dancing on his toes.

      was watching the “show” yesterday.

      but…all those stories about the friendly family Jackson…wasn’t father Jackson a big childbeating azzhole?

      and what Sharpton said about Michael that he was a major bounderbreaker in the race-thing.
      Thought Nina Simone was more involved in that then him

      This will be my last comment on the Michael Jackson death.. First of all.. I want to say R.I.P. Michael Jackson and ty for all the great music through the years..and my prayers to his kids and family.

      Michael Jackson never did claim to be the King of Rock n Roll.. People gave him the title of King of Pop Music.. His music did cross barriers and brought people of all nationalities together if only for a couple hours.. (too bad Al sharpton and Jesse Jackson don’t take note). They are 2 of the great dividers. I love his music and admire his talent dancing and all the songs he wrote. Genius at it.. I can’t imagine having people by the thousands at my door or everywhere I went following me and having to lock yourself away. I can’t imagine being on stage since I was 5 with no childhood ..all about making money.. Never knowing who is after your money or who is really a friend. Like his brother said yesterday most of us take for granted being able to go out without being followed, analyzed and people looking for anything to write some bad story about you to sell newspapers. Child abuse effects everyone different.. and I do believe he was abused by his father. His father wasn’t a big part of the funeral and he left his father nothing. I think he used Michael for years..Money.. Fred Astaire praised his dancing.

      Like Elvis he dealt with life through prescription drugs it seems.. We’ve heard all kinds of dark stories about Elvis.. even that he would have nothing to do with Priscilla after she had Lisa.. shooting his tv when Robert Goulet came on..he had sleep disorders…would stay up all night.smoking and drinking. Numerous women. The Price of Fame..Elvis and Michael gave all to their fans.. I am not comparing the two as people..just the fame and what it does to some. Eccentric, you betcha.. I don’t even believe Michael Jackson had any idea of reality after the world he lived in so long. That being said, don’t think he was stupid at all.

      After the Bashir interview..

      In response to the Bashir documentary, Jackson’s staff had a “rebuttal video” produced, called Take Two or The Footage You Were Never Meant to See, and presented by Maury Povich. The production included an interview with the family, filmed on the night of February 19, 2003 in Moslehi’s home. This part of the footage was not aired because the videographer Hamid Moslehi refused to hand it over, following a financial dispute with Jackson.[5][6] It was found by police in a search of Moslehi’s home in November 2003, and it showed the accuser’s family praising Jackson, with the accuser insisting no molestation had occurred and that Jackson was “innocent”.[7] Arvizo, his sister Daveline, brother Star and mother Janet were “upfront” and said that inappropriate behavior had “absolutely not occurred” while also calling him a father figure.[7] They also insisted that they slept in Jackson’s bed although Jackson himself always slept on the floor.[7] To further the rebuttal Janet Arvizo issued the statement:

      “The relationship that Michael has with my children is beautiful, loving, father-son and daughter one. To my children and me Michael is part of the family.”[7]. She also stated that she was thinking of taking legal action against Martin Bashir.[7]

      Instead of going to police, Janet Arvizo decided on February 20, 2003 to take her family to be interviewed by the Sensitive Case Unit of L.A.’s Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS), as part of an investigation jointly carried out with the LAPD. A school official from the Los Angeles Unified School District had lodged a complaint out of concern for the boy who would later be Jackson’s accuser, and his younger brother. The official did so out of general neglect by their mother and sexual abuse by Jackson, after watching the Bashir documentary. The entire family insisted that no inappropriate contact with Jackson occurred; moreover, the mother said that the children were never left alone with Jackson. The case was closed; the charges marked as “unfounded.”

      The family planned a trip to Brazil. These plans play a role in the allegations. According to witnesses, the Jackson camp told the family that there were death threats related to the airing against the family. The Arvizos claim that Jackson planned to trap the family in Brazil to keep them from making allegations. However, the defense asked why Jackson would buy the family a two-way ticket to and from Brazil if his plans were to “trap” the family in another country.

      After the interview, the children went back to Neverland, and a day later, their mother came as well after making preparations for the trip to Brazil, although, she says, she did not really want to go.

      Mother was later charged with welfare fraud.

      You can read the rest here..


      Why would a mother or any mother send their kids to his home to stay if they thought he was a child molester or allegations of it? Is he one? I have no clue..part of me says it could be, and another yet says he loved kids..had Neverland for kids.. donated countless money to charities to help kids..and at times was like a kid himself..and maybe he was looking for the childhood he never had.. It’s between him and his maker now..

      As for me.. I will continue to enjoy his music. I grew up with his music.,pray the mother will let the kids stay with the life and people they know.. but we all know the lawyers etc will be out in full force..MONEY, MONEY, MONEY… Unfortunately the world is full of narrow minded people who see everything as black or white..and ignore the shades of gray.

      Well, even an oldie like myself liked his music, thought some aspects of his life probably hard to deal with and this contribued to his “strangeness”, appreciated his giving to charity….but enough already. How many days can this continue??? I feel he will be up for sainthood by the end of the year.

      It was fun watching Magic Johnson try to act like he is literate!

      I tried to belive it for a moment, and then my phone rang. It was reality calling me back.

      The whole thing was a freakin’ circus.

      Here’s my tribute!

      Michael Jackson… started out like a normal kid.
      Could sing and dance like no other. Then Joe figured out he could make a bunch a money from
      it. Beat the farts out of him. He went nuts.
      Tried to escape the pain with drugs and Jesus juice. Played with his nose until it fell off.
      Played with a monkey. Played with himself. Played with some children. Mike enjoyed playing!

      He is now finally free from his mental prison.

      Now we will bury him, shom-on shom-on!

      So just throw your hands up in the air…

      … and shake your IV drip like ya just don’t care

      All the party people in da house say BLANKET!

      The world keeps on spinnin’…

      … and the beat goes on.
