Very sad. Michael Jackson was a huge part of my childhood. Even now, Man in the Mirror is played at every one of my friends' weddings. It's one of our songs.

They actually did. They were talking about how the premiere of a MJ video was a MAJOR event on MTV.

the night before i got my A Level results back in the day, i went to see England v Ukraine in newcastle. On the way back it was a 6 hour drive back home to the midlands due to the traffic and we only had one cd. It was History part 1, the greatest hits cd and we listened to it on repeat for 6 hours and never got sick of it. We even got lost and forgot to turn off the motorway we were enjoying it so much

I wasn't born until 6 years later, but I've seen the video many times on TV and Youtube. I can't even watch any Jackson 5 videos right now. That adorable, incredibly talented little boy just breaks me right now.

Wow, MTV acknowledged that they use to be a music channel. I thought today couldn't get any more shocking.

Michael Jackson was like my first pop idol crush. I listened to Thriller on repeat forever (along with various Jackson 5 albums)!!
I feel bad for his children. No father and no real mom who will be there for them.
So incredibly sad.
RIP Michael Jackson

Well, the 2 older children have their mother for sure. Debbie Rowe (his ex-wife) is the mom of his 2 older kids, and she gave custody to Michael after their divorce, but they'll probably be reunited with her now. As for the youngest child, nobody knows who his mother is (likely a surrogate), so it's hard to say what will happen to him. Maybe Debbie (if she gets custody back) will get custody of him too, to keep the kids together.

They were saying that because Debbie Rowe signed away her parental rights not once, but twice, that it's not at all a given that a judge would rule for her to get the kids.

Another song that just came up on my iPod (Adam Lambert's version) that reminds me of Michael's life.

Mad World

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

I imagine MJ would have made arrangements for his children. Surely he has a will.

I turned on the radio and a few stations here are playing him.

PYT

I was out with my girlfriends a couple of months ago and they played it and we were all dancing to it.

They just played a bit of the Thriller video on Mtv and I just remembered how when I was little I made my parents rent the "making of" video a million times. I had such a huge crush on him. That's how I'm going to remember him. I pray he's at peace now.

Jermaine is talking now on CNN giving a press conference. He looks like he's really having a tough time giving the statement. Poor guy. In people's minds he was everything from a legendary genius to an evil freak (which I'll never understand) but to Jermaine (and the other siblings) along with his parents and children, he was a brother, son, and father.

Looks like MTV has finally moved to MJ videos on the west coast.

Either that, or The REal World now looks like an 80s movie with cameos by Whoopi Goldberg, Paula Abdul, Sherman Helmsley, Debbie Gibson and one of those Arquette girls, and the rich girl from Different World and ..... Weird Al Yankovic?

I seriously have no idea what video this is.

Huh, it didn't turn into any video. Just a big collection of 80s stars and then MJ at the end. I've never seen that before.

I have been at a loss for words since I heard. And yes, there have been tears twice already. I'm with Sicy...let's just hold off on the bickering and have some respect for the HUGE loss we're all dealing with. My heart goes out to his family, and especially his children.
