I guess they'll get around to it eventually. Maybe.
They have been showing his videos though. At least at the time I checked it.

I don't see how anyone can say they're as shocked as they were during Lennon's death. They two deaths aren't even in the same realm of each other.

I mean the guy was fucking murdered.

I haven't read through this whole thread and I'm on my phone right now. But I just wanted to say that this is a person why was certainly abused as a child, and deserves a little sympathy. But he spent most of his adulthood building a private fantasyland for himself, as well as spending god knows how much altering his face, body, and skin color, for which there is no excuse, and which personally I find insulting to his black heritage.

The guy could have spent his time and money trying to make the world a better place (imagine what he could have accomplished in Africa, for example). Instead he just retreated further and further into his own delusions. That anyone would worship this guy, or think of him as a role model disturbs me. He represents everything wrong with child stars, frivolous spending, bad parenting, arrested development, etc. And that doesnt include the TWO incidents of being accused of child molestation. Yes, he was acquitted, but they found books of nude children, he admitted to having slumber parties with kids, and supposedly witnesses were threatened and bullied...plus he settled out of court for an exorbitant amount. So I don't think the guy is innocent.

A handful of catchy songs doesn't stack up too well against all the bad stuff. A John Lennon-level tragedy this ain't, and not much of a loss to the music world either. He's been irrelevant for over 15 years.

It's ambiguous, but yeah, probably. Not a big one once you see the movie though.

God forbid MTV show Music Television.

I bet it'll be MJ day on Vh1 or Vh1 Classic tomorrow.

i'm 23 - only Jacko, Freddie Mercury and Diana have been massive deaths in my era/registered on my radar

Obviously if i was around when Lennon dies, yep i'd have been gutted too

This I agree with, but maybe for different reasons. The guy was an undeniable talent, but the future's lack of any true "King of Pop" will be due to the fact that the days of any one artist defining popular music and/or a generation are long hone.
