I'm sure U2 will acknowledge Michael at some point. A number of U2 songs could be dedicated to Michael.

RIP MJ You were a music GOD!

What a dam sad day it was yesterday! I loved his music from the day I could remember (probably 4 or 5 years old because MJ was sooo huge in my country back in the 80's!). What might have become of him if he lived to have a comeback? Perhaps he would have wowed the world one more time and proved all the critics wrong. What a sad life he lived! Even to the end he didn't even make it to his dream of a comeback What is even more sad then all of this is that there are people including some of my friends who are happy he is dead and are making jokes. Have some fucking taste people if you didn't like him keep it to yourself and let everyone else mourn the loss of a music legend! Either way RIP MJ!!!

I'm guessing you haven't heard their plans for the song...?

Official "Bitch about the stupid mask" thread


I'm sure they'll find some worthy way to honour his memory, though.

Oh, I've heard about it. I'm not so sure I'm into the mask thing, but I'm glad that they're keeping her and her cause in the spotlight. I'm just saying it would be awesome if they acknowledged MJ at some point.

My mom was watching the Dateline special on NBC earlier, and she said that Michael's tour director (I think that's who she said he was) said they recorded all of his rehearsals for the tour, and they were so good they may be able to put together a DVD out of them. That would kick a million different kinds of ass.

I hope wherever he is tonight, he's restored to health, happy, and has his original face back.

It's not Heaven if he's not decked out in the "Rock With You" garb.

God yes. He was such an adorable little boy. I wish the Pepsi fire had never happened because he seemed to use that incident as an excuse to get his first nose job. You were great the way you were, Mike.

I went to the movie theater and saw these 16-year-old thuggies all decked out in their car, driving around with the windows down blasting MJ's music.

Check out some of the tributes from all over the world:

China


Bulgaria


Manila


Paris


Warsaw


Mexico


Russia


India

And a very special subway party in NYC. Check out the guys who walk in, give a laugh and immediately join in the festivities. You'll be hard pressed to find someone who didn't like a single Jackson song:

Holy crap, that blog by Lisa Marie.

Rage on ABC TV in Australia played all his early vids this morning and i was grooving in my kitchen eating brekkie and dancing to Don't stop. What struck me about those early Jackson 5 vids and the early MJ solo vids is how he smiled so much! Really big happy grins. He never ever smiled again like that, in public anyway, after about Bad. God how I missed that!

That video from the train is amazing. His music is what it's all about.

I am very sad to hear that Michael Jackson died yesterday.

He was my first crush when I was 9. It was the first time we had a VCR and we rented Moonwalker from our local off licence. Not only did I think he was handsome but I thought he was an amazing dancer. Watch that video for Smooth Criminal and you can see how many contemparies copy his moves nowadays. I got 2 newspapers because my mum always likes to collect newspapers of important news stories. I got the Sun and the Independent. I hate the Sun in all honesty. When he was acquited of those charges a few years ago they still had to hound him. I know they are a bunch of hippocrites but I got it because it has a story about how the police think he died. He was only 50, that is nothing nowadays and it can't just be the stress of those 50 dates in London. Look at Mick Jagger and he's old enough to be his dad. They reckon he had been taken a strong cocktail of painkillers for many years. Plus all those unnecessary surgery he had on his face puts a strain on your heart. Isn't that what they reckon Kanye West's mum died of last year, a heart attack brought on by a series of major operations? It's nice to see Lisa Marie say such kind things about him. My mum told me yesterday morning at 9am and I couldn't go back to sleep.

Oh and yesterday I switched over to watch Wimbledon and when I saw Sue Barker and John MacInroe talking at first I thought they were discussing a player but no, it was Michael. Latter that evening they even mentioned his death on EastEnders which is shot 6 weeks in advance. They must of dropped that in earlier that day and slotted it into that episode. Also In EastEnders they had one of his songs playing in the background in the pub. This could have also been dropped in. This is my feeling of what should have been done with Live8, they could've dropped Michael in via sattelite as he was acquited a few weeks earlier.
