FWIW, I had a friend die in February. His dad was a total asshole, but that man cried and cried, and I realized he was more human than I'd ever thought. I don't see one ounce of emotion in Joe Jackson. How sad.

Poor Janet. I'm glad she spoke and not her father.

Otherwise the way people just kept name dropping MJ and then laughing it up during the entire thing was tacky as hell and cringeworthily embarrassing.

I did enjoy seeing Guy BBD and the O Jay's tribute. I think the MJ tribute needs a show all of it's own.

Finally...and I can't for the life of me imagine what the HELL the CEO of BET is thinking...gee, the man merely holds the Guinness record for being the most charitable pop musician in history...do ya think ya mighta just renamed the fucking humantarian award in his name ie the Michael Jackson Humanitarian Award? Some people are obtuse beyond belief.

How are you doing?
"I'm great!"

And then he proceeds to pimp his new record label in the middle of answering a question about Michael's funeral.

I don't know why or how this is affecting me similarly. I keep hearing more and more songs that take me back to a memory, a girl, a heartbreak, a dance, something...someone said it feels like a piece of them or their childhood has died...people can laugh all they want, but I'm feeling it too.

I visited my 91 year old grandma in the hospital today and I assumed she wouldn't even know (or care) about his death, but it was one of the first things she mentioned..."that poor Michael Jackson, how terrible for a man of his age to go so soon."

He is one of the scariest people I've ever seen. Comes across as such a cold, heartless and brutal guy. No wonder Michael was afraid of him all his life. How the family put up with his tyrrany is beyond me

An interesting article about his last months (presuming it's truthful?)

'I'm better off dead. I'm done': How Michael Jackson predicted his death six months ago | Mail Online

Quote:
One of my sources suggested that he might already have had a genetic condition I had never previously come across, called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency – the lack of a protein that can help protect the lungs.

Although up to 100,000 Americans are severely affected by it, it is an under-recognised condition. Michael was receiving regular injections of Alpha-1 antitrypsin derived from human plasma. The treatment is said to be remarkably effective and can enable the sufferer to lead a normal life.

But the disease can cause respiratory problems and, in severe cases, emphysema. Could this be why Jackson had for years been wearing a surgical mask in public, to protect his lungs from the ravages of the disease? Or why, from time to time, he resorted to a wheelchair? When I returned to my source inside the Jackson camp for confirmation, he said: ‘Yeah, that’s what he’s got. He’s in bad shape. They’re worried that he might need a lung transplant but he may be too weak.

While I want to believe there's a reason for every "weird thing" he ever did, I can't shake my earlier understandings of why he was the way he was. I keep getting this feeling that they are trying to do him justice in death, but I have sort of already made up my mind about things surrounding his eccentric lifestyle, so I'm really very skeptical. I guess I can change in the future, but it would have to be very compelling evidence.

Either way, it doesn't stop me from appreciating his music or his endless love for his fans. I will always believe that the love he showed for people who loved him was the most sincere form of Michael, and for that mourn him. I don't think I've ever seen a more humble artist in the presence of his fans.

I would be afraid of Joe Jackson, too.

Warm wishes and kind thoughts, for your grandma. She sounds like a lovely, woman.

You know what is so sad (if you ask me). IS that only 3 days after MJ dies, his dad is out there walking around the BET awards smilling and acting like his son is still alive. Thats really in poor taste. Three days after your son dies, I would think you'de still be too devastated to even get out of your home! But what do I know?

Wow, I saw that CNN Don Lemon interview live as it happened and could not believe it either. Then again, that explains everything so clearly doesn't it? He is one messed up puppy, wonder who abused him when he was young.

As far as the tribute goes..... I was disappointed. It lacked the dept and feeling it deserved imo. It came off almost like a parady especially Jamie Fox's imitation of MJ. Jamie is funny, but that was just strange imo because it came off as a comedy bit rather than a tribute. Beyonce's song/montage was beautiful but what was with her wedding dress thing/outfit? I didn't get it.

Awesome Rolling Stone article from Rob Sheffield. I that guy. I don't really agree with his Bad assessment, but other than that, it's a beautiful tribute.
