the man was a musical genius, and for that he will be missed.

but all that needs to be said about the downward spiral of michael jackson is the fact that this thread is in the entertainment section of this forum, not the music section.

he was a true shakespearean character.

i hope bono is okay.

I don't care how anyone spins it, you cannot compare an entertainer of any pedigree to the President of the United States. Not to mention comparing the impact of their deaths.

I know his poor kids. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

RIP Michael Jackson.

My Mum went to see him at Aintree when I was little. He didn't interact with the audience much talking wise but she said it was an amazing show, one of the best she had seen. She would be devastated now if she was still here today.

Yeah, the more I think about this the more I think I'm realizing how much of an impact it must be having on a lot of people. If it was Bob Dylan or Paul McCartney (to name a couple), I would be totally floored right now too.

I apologize for my comments earlier in the thread, guys - this really wasn't an appropriate time or place for them. Gotta make sure to think a bit longer before I post in the future.

I bet if you step out of the United States, people will agree with the comparison. I don't know where the original commenter is from, but that might be how he sees it.

What lifestyle? He wasn't overweight, didn't smoke, etc. We really don't know what caused his death - could be genetics.

Excuse me, you leveled the charge that he 'probably committed suicide'?

And he hasn't been making new music, whereas someone like Lennon was. This is not Lennon. Lennon was younger and much more active musically.

CNN keeps playing clips from his videos, this guy really did not just do some of the best videos of all time but some of the best music ever, makes it even sadder that he's gone now

LA Times saying he died is good enough for me. I don't need CNN to get all "we're confirmed it, so now it's true" about it.

I have such mixed feelings. Insanely talented. He was my first pop idol crush. I even had my grandma knit me a yellow sweater vest because he wore one in a poster I had of him (go easy on me - I was, like, 11).

It's hard not to think about the accusations and court cases and whatnot when you think about Michael Jackson, though. Like it or not, true or false, it's tarnished his legacy.

What a sad, weird life.

It upsets me that most teens think of him as a "rapist".
Everyones facebooks are talking about it.
He was a musical genius

Growing up during the 70's and 80's, Michael Jackson was great. I'll remember him that way, a very talented musician. I'm sure a lot of people will mourn his death greatly.

R.I.P.

I like Lennon

and make no judgments about his personal choices with Yoko

I absolutely do not believe anything about being anywhere close to reunion with the Beatles

M J very well may have been on the cusp of a huge comeback with his sold out live shows

that will be the obit, I am sure.
