Considering the 2 were big rivals in the 80's and very early 90's, I wonder if they've gotten a statement from Prince. If it weren't for Mike, Prince wouldn't have been on MTV.

I like Michael's music, but lets be clear here. A 45 year old man sleeping in the same bed with a child that is not his son or daughter or even a relative is ... inappropriate to say the least. I realize he was a manchild and all, but Michael should NOT have been doing this.


Now, that he's gone, I will choose to remember his music and his dancing and forget about his personal shortcomings.

Oh dear lord, The Osmonds were so white bread they made the Jackson 5 look like Zeppelin.

You're kidding, right? Maybe some in the United States but not outside your borders.

Farrah Fawcett's story, on the other hand, was the exact opposite - hers was a story about her mortality, about her fight with her disease, and the strength, courage, and love that she exuded in that fight, and how her illness and Ryan O'Neal's illness brought them back together and their love, and what a beautiful and loving and optimistic person she was.

Ed McMahon was loved for his kind, jovial, and inherently warm nature, for making people laugh with Johnny Carson every night for three decades and for his own infectious laugh, for being a comforting personality, like Johnny, for people to watch every night for those three decades. These are very human characteristics and attributes.

But neither were ever seen as this god-like figure the way Michael Jackson has been for decades.
I think you missed the point of my original question.

Well, at least he didn't actually believe Han Solo died too.

Michael Jordan is the MOST recognizable athlete on the planet, next to Muhammed Ali.

Back then the parallels were uncanny, 5 brothers, the youngest (until Jimmy tried to join the OB's)with the most talent, both on Saturday morning cartoons, and later a sister (or 2 if you count Latoya) getting into the business.

The big difference seems to be in family upbringing. The Mormon Osmonds have had a few issues, but are all pretty much OK, whereas controlling/domineering Joseph Jackson may have had a hand in Michael reaching much greater heights of success and fame, but look at the price.

Not to argue but I think her point is that in say Australia or Japan or Europe, if someone used the initials MJ in a sentence about a famous person, the first name that comes to mind would be Michael Jackson. And she's absolutely right, but I'll let our friends in other countries concur (or correct) on that.

When I hear "MJ" I assume someone's talking to me. Those are my initials and I have been called "MJ" by a handful of people my whole life, lol.

Reading Berry Gordy or Quincy Jones paying their respects seems bizarre and surreal beyond belief.

Don't believe it for one second.
And I lived on 3 different continents for many years.
