The Industry Remembers The King

Published: Wednesday 23rd Jun 2010 by Trent

One year ago, the music industry’s greatest entertainer, Michael Jackson, passed away. However, the tremendous legacy of the King of Pop has not been forgotten. Billboard.com compiled a collection of clips in which some of brightest young stars in the game today, including Christina Aguilera, Jason Derulo, Lil Jon, Nelly and others, shared their memories of the icon and inspirational stories about his influence on their careers. Peep the clip below:

There is no doubt that Jackson was the greatest force to emerge from the music world in the last 50 years. His influence on the game is unmatched and the glory of his artistry is within the league of Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder; a class above all others.  Simply put, Michael Jackson is better than your favourite artist. Long live the King.

    That’s my favourite MJ photo

  7. Topman June 23, 2010

    Oh and be real, Michael was on a higher level than Stevie and Aretha, only the Beatles and Elvis can compare.

  8. thekiddz June 23, 2010

    Ugh. I’m done with MJ tributes. Might as well just listen to his records…

    Britney, Beyonce, Justin, Usher, Chris, Gaga, Adam Lambert, Madonna, and even Prince should all be apart of this <3.

  12. Last Boy on Earth June 23, 2010

    there goes the King rolling in his grave once again, people say R.I.P MJ, well, how can He rest in peace while all his songs are being murdered by nobodies? I know I couldn’t

  13. BENJAMIN June 23, 2010

    It won’t be a year until Friday, but still, it sure has been one long year later. Look at all the money his estate has accumulated since his passing…….an estimated $1 billion. The great grandchildren of his kids won’t ever have to work a day in their life.

  14. Sarah1 June 23, 2010

    I agree with Last Boy. They should have great lineups for MJ’s tributes but they never do. What a terrible shame.

  15. DANBOFFICIAL (AALIYAH/RIHANNA/XTINA) STAN) June 23, 2010

    @Commander,

    I could not agree with you more! Where are the true “brightest young stars” as they blog states? I hate how so many ppl “LOVE” Michael Jackson but stood by either laughing or saying NOTHING when the media was TEARING HIM DOWN! Now they want to pay tribute ISN’T THAT A BLIP?

  19. Geronimo Deuces June 23, 2010

    There will only be 1 sweetie, and Chris Brown is 0. Ask Europe.

    <3 <3 <3 MJ we miss you!

  24. Gucci June 23, 2010

    @TheYoungLion

    Prince shits on Michael Jackson? Prince is an icon for gay men like Trent who wish they had the courage to step in a pair of platform shoes without being judged like the queens they are.

    Michael Jackson is the greatest artist the world has ever seen, and probably will ever see honey. Hang it up.

    NEXT. MJ tributes are so LAST YEAR. Trust me MJ would rather not have GRUNTina SCREAMING in his ear for 4 minutes STR8. He’s supposed to be RESTING IN PIECE, How is he supposed to do that by hearing ROARS & GRUNTS from STRAINTina??

    & Speaking of Xtina. Boy have a got good some news for you (tone Deaf) Christina stains. Bionic pulled a Whooping 36,000 copies in Its 2nd week!! with a 76% Decrease. At this rate she’ll go Platinum one day….. One day.

  27. S*** June 23, 2010

    Boy have a got some good news for you Christina stains. Bionic pulled a Whooping 36,000 copies in Its 2nd week!! with a 76% Decrease. At this rate she’ll go Platinum in no time.

    He was the GIFT of the universe, a man of soul and spirit, a man of faith, a man of glory a humble man. Thanks his music that today is “OUR” music he want against the wall of the human society IGNORANCE AND RACISM…He will be the only King that never EVER die…R.I.P. MJ

    @ BEYONCE VS. WORLD

    I like your new avater. I love that pic of THE QUEEN BEY is the Truth.

  31. Chelle..x June 23, 2010

    Michael Jackson was, is and forever shall be, quite simply put and by a clearrrr milee, the single greatest entertainer to have ever lived. Out of all the entertainers who have ever been out there and done it, no one has and no one ever will quite do it like Michael. long Live the King..x

  32. BEYONCE VS. WORLD June 23, 2010

    @S*** THANKS AND I ENJOYED THAT FUNKTINA NEWS I’LL MAKE SURE THE WORD GETS AROUND

  33. shania June 23, 2010

    @chrissystan why would you even mention him, his so irrelevant to the music industry now. he should leave the dancing to him an his mirror. @younglion i think prince is one of the greastest but come on price shits on michael? If you think about all of michaels work you would realise most entertainer would be here with out him. @ Topman when it comes to artistry his better then Elvis. Elvis had no creative control over his work, he just sang the songs, so the comparison trent made is more relevant.

  34. Gucci June 23, 2010

    @Chrissy stan

    How dare you…….I have no words…You’re obviously 12-14 years old and have no idea of what you speak of pumpkin. Chris Brown couldn’t even cough in MJ’s presence. And you’re saying Chris the iron fist dances better than MJ when Chris COPIES ALL OF MJ’s dance moves in the first place? What planet on you on sweetie! Oh you didn’t realize that Chris is recycling all of MJ’s old dance moves did you hun? That’s because you’re a dumbass b****.

    Now sit down and wait patiently for Chris’ career to get pulled out of the European dumpster

  35. S*** June 23, 2010

    Not everyone is gonna like everyone, not even MJ. My Mother doesnt even care for MJ or Mariah. MJ Is not everyone’s greatest. Therefore he can only be considered ‘One of the Greatest ‘ just like Beyonce & Mariah is ‘One of the Greatest ‘. MJ is Not everyone’s best.

  36. S*** June 23, 2010

    & Dont Diss other Musicians just because MJ came 1st or sold more Albums or is for whatever reason more respected. MJ is not “thea best” at absolutely every aspect of musicianship or in every aspect of success. MJ wouldnt want his fans dissing other Artist just to uplift him or make him seem so much better than them & there just useless to music.

  37. danny b June 23, 2010

    @S***

    your name is exactly what is spewing for your mouth… Actually, MJ may not be everyones “Favorite”, but that doesnt mean he is not THE GREATEST… which in fact he is, whther some ppl want to recognize it or not… fan or not, one should at least recognize that MJ is the best thats ever done it… no ones achieved what he has… MJ IS “one of the gretatest” but is also THE GREATEST as well. His fame and artistry had spanned over more generations than the Beatles or Elvis or anybody else… Blacks, whites, asians, latinos, etc…. young,old… you cant really say that about any other entertainer thats ever lived.and this is a FACT, not opinion honestly… more than half of todays artists wouldnt even have careers if it werent for some kind of inspiration from Michael Jackson…

  38. danny b June 23, 2010

    and another thing, this is an MJ post in relation to paying tribute and respect to the King… so dont come on here denouncing what the rest of the world believes… if u wanna think that Mike “isnt the best” then thats YOUR call..(emphasis on YOUR)… but the fact of the matter is that the rest of the world does declare him as the KING of POP…POP meaning all of popular music in general… Pop, Rock, RnB, Soul, etc… Dont try to make it seem like Michael was just another very talented artist… hes the artist that every artist aspires to be…. NO its not necessary to diss othe artists in MJ’s name, but dont denounce his title to defend those artists cuz when it really comes down to it, he is greater than your favorite in all aspects…

  39. Gucci June 23, 2010

    @danny b

    LMAO YESSSSSS boy! You took those words right out of my mouth. I think people forget that MJ has more fans than most of these other artist’s combined and multiplied so throwing shade at him will get you no where.

    @S*** sweetie you need to be flushed……..

  41. S*** June 23, 2010

    @ DANNY B

    Really?? Hes not the best SINGER. His Dancing is in NO WAY Versatile, same spins, tics & moonwalks. Vocally & musically he wasnt that versatile either. Most of his Pop songs sounds the same & most of his R&B songs sounded the same. His music is good generally but Its not thea best, A lot of his work is over rated. Thriller IS NOT thea best Album ever made- only thea most successful. There are better performers out there. Also he doesnt hold every record known to man (Mariah & Elvis had more #1s, Jay Z had more #1 Albums etc) But he did have thea biggest Fan Base & he had the strongest influence on the industry. He doesnt do anything for me but Im not knocking him, He is ONE OF THEA BEST to ever do it- Now, That I cant deny.

  42. danny b June 23, 2010

    @S***

    I wont even take the time to refute the STUPIDEST shyt u just said to ever be posted on this God-forsaken website….. ill just let you reap what u soe when the rest of us MJ stans and any fan of music comes for your ass at any second… hope u have a bullet proof vest…

  43. Jolie June 23, 2010

    @s***….PREACH!….i see u nt sippin none of tht MJ kool-aid…to be honest,i liked the man’s music…bt to me it seems like after he died he started becomin way too overrated…like he is the end-all be-all of music…and to the fool who said MJ is better thn Aretha and Stevie Wonder,puh-leasse!…he may hv sold more thn them bt m sure even he wud agree tht he is nt even on the same level as those two……….

  44. Gucci June 23, 2010

    Sweetheart, even before he died Thriller was the highest selling album of all time…..

    of all time……
    I repeat of all time………

    *cue the flat line*

    Without him, all of your faves would be nobody. He gave every b**** in the music industry their identity, including Flop Brown. He also single handedly created what is now called the music video.

    Now please sit down and stop disrespecting his gift. <3

  45. S*** June 23, 2010

  49. rated x June 23, 2010

    ok I like michael jackson like the next person. I think he’s one of the greatest artist ever lived..but im tired of these half ass tributes. I mean let the man rest..
    sames ones who was bashing michael calling him a child m*******, suddendly give a fugg? i cant get with this s***.

    umm, i dont stan for anybody, cause none of so call celebs paying my bills, but i got to defend some stupidity when i hear some.
    michael jackson paved the way for usher, chris brown, and may other artist out there. yes i do agree people being fake as hell now, that hes dead suddenly they give a s*** about him.
    but michael is always and always gonna s*** on princes talent..i dont give a fugg if prince is gay(that got s*** to do with his music). but u got to give props when props is due. michael is one of the best out there, even though hes dead, dude music is still making millions.

  50. Nika June 23, 2010

    MJ was universal, which made him BIGGER than ANY OTHER artist in history; so YES, he is “THE BEST”. People from different generations, cultures, countries sang MJ songs, tht makes him “TH BEST”, any other artist and fan of MUSIC needs to give this man that respect. I luv and miss u MIke, RIP!!!

  51. The truth June 23, 2010

    S***- If he was so overrtated, why are you on this post, and why does 99 per cent of the music industry copy him, sit the f*** down and shut he hell up

  52. Last Boy on Earth June 23, 2010

    why do you compare Prince to Michael Jackson? Their musical styles aren’t even the same, I love Michael but atleast Prince played all his instruments, I love those 2 artists and they are already in the music history books

  53. LUV-LEE June 23, 2010

    I really wish I would have known all of you that are singing Michael’s praises now like 10 years ago. I really didn’t know you all were out there. They all seem to be coming out of the woodworks now.

  54. ~Team Weezy~ June 23, 2010

    I agree with @Last Boy on Earth. It’s kinda crazy to compare the two because of their distinct differences. But I will say as far as dancing/entertaining and just all around artistry, Michael Jackson is the greatest and as far as musicianship Prince is by far the greatest. But I’m a fan of both.

  55. ~Team Weezy~ June 23, 2010

    He’s supposed to be RESTING IN PIECE, How is he supposed to do that by hearing ROARS & GRUNTS from STRAINTina??

    BWWWAaaaaaaayyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! LMMMMAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    I can’t! I just can’t!

    OMMMMMMMGGGGG!! I just died!

    You all PROVE that MJ was the greatest because you deny the obvious. MJ has sold (legally) 750 MILLION records WORLDWIDE, produced 13 #1 hits (the MOST of any male solo artist in history), won 15 Grammys, produced the highest selling album of all time (Thriller 150 MILLION+ albums), won 347 industry awards (the MOST of any solo artist in history), had his music video “Thriller” be inducted into the National Film Registry of the U.S. Library of Congress (the ONLY music video inducted), been the only artist to have a music video premiere on 3 major TV networks worldwide (MTV, BET, FOX), I could go on & on & on & on & on but I know it will only make the 3 of you mad, so #kanyeshrug

    @THEYOUNGLION Prince hasn’t been relevant since Purple Rain. Sorry

    @JOLIE Stevie Wonder admired Michael & always invited him into the studio to watch him record as a child. He even let Mike re-record a lot of his songs, so #FAIL

  62. TheYoungLion June 23, 2010

    Prince still shits on MJ….. #fact

  63. sarah June 23, 2010

    @THEYOUNGLION #FALSE

    I wonder why Quincy Jones said Prince didn’t refused to sing next to MJ in “We are the World” and he kept making the whole event about himself saying “he just wanted to play guitar” when the song was for F****** CHARITY!!!!! Could it have been the fact that he was intimidated???? mmmm the mind wonders

    Prince inspired Quincy’s motto “LEAVE YOUR EGOS AT THE DOOR”

    BTW MJ was always respectful to Prince, even saying that if he didn’t actualize an idea, God would give it to Prince instead. You Purple Wonder fans are so mad with MJ, but why? Maybe you’re like Madonna, Elvis, Beyonce, and Beatles fans. INSECURE AS F***!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  64. FattDoll June 23, 2010

    You know what irks the hell of me….rewind back to 2005..how many of this random b****** and attention whores took the time to show their face on camera and say…”mike we love you we stand by you be strong”:…hella none!! They were all clowning him.

    @THEYOUNGLION

    I agree!!!!!
    Prince shits on MJ because he plays many instruments and wears high heels *crickets*

    SO why hasn’t he sold more albums, produced more #1 hits, you know the rest????

  67. PRINCE MICHAEL, AND PRINCESS CIARA – AMERICAN ROYALTY June 23, 2010

    @gucci

    U PIECE OF HORSE SH8T. CHRIS BROWN AND CIARA ARE THE ONLY 2 PEOPLE WHO R QUALIFIED TO CARRY ON MICHAEL’S LEGACY OF DANCE AND SONG. IF SOME DAMN CARIBBEAN BILLY GOAT LIKE THAT DAMN WYCLEF BUTCHERS ONE OF HIS MASTERPIECES AGAIN………………….. WHAT HE DID TO “WE ARE THE WORLD” IS EITHER THE MOST HORRIFIC THING TO HAPPEN IN ENTERTAINMENT, OR HE IS THE BIGGEST LAUGHING STOCK ON THE PLANET. MICHAEL’S FANS SHOULD HAVE STONED THAT C***.

    ONE ANSWER: A GUILTY Conscience

    People give praise now because they were too afraid to give it back then. It would’ve made them look bad.

    The only people I respect in regards to MJ are Will.I.Am, Akon, Chris Tucker, Steve Harvey, A. Keys, Britney Spears, and that’s about it. They all defended MJ in his darkest hour.

    Even Lisa Marie Presley is acting all nice now when she bashed him all up ‘n through the media. She had the nerve to insult MJ fans for not putting Sunflowers at his mausoleum. F*** her. She isn’t his widow!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just *a few* MJ rip offs. Sorry folks. Even Beyonce wears “one metallic glove” now smh

  70. EWWdeFU@Kno June 23, 2010

    It is a damn shame that we cannot get a true MICHALE JACKSON TRIBUTE from the young legends in the making CHRIS BROWN & CIARA! The 2 who are direct descendants of MJ! I am tired of the fake media proping up these colorful talentless clowns! We Miss You Michael Jackson!

  71. dash4597 June 23, 2010

    @EWWDEFU@KNO

    We won’t get a proper MJ tribute because the media doesn’t really want to tribute him in the first place. It’s just a ploy for ratings. In the media, ratings are everything. Besides, they hate Chris Brown now for his DV incident & Ciara isn’t “mainstream” enough to be requested for a performance.

  72. dash4597 June 23, 2010

  73. MJ – The greatest ever June 23, 2010

    A post about MJ is too good for this site and it’s largely borderline retarded/12 year old readership who have nothing better to do than argue over whether the likes of Chris Brown, Rihanna and Ciara are the world’s greatest artists ever to grace this planet.

    Nevertheless here’s my contributuion: Michael Jackson’s greatness is so transcendent that human beings are born knowing who he is. Nuff’ said.

    One of the few Michael Jackson tributes worthy of the King: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqW-udLmKsA

  74. LACE June 23, 2010

    @S***

    Hes not the best SINGER. His Dancing is in NO WAY Versatile, same spins, tics & moonwalks. Vocally & musically he wasnt that versatile either. Most of his Pop songs sounds the same & most of his R&B songs sounded the same. His music is good generally but Its not thea best, A lot of his work is over rated. Thriller IS NOT thea best Album ever made- only thea most successful. There are better performers out there.

    ASSHOLE the word is “the” not “thea”. Typical Beyonce stan. Dumb as a pile of f****** bricks just like their yodeling, wig wearing, p**** popping idol.

    The rantings of a DELUSIONAL Beylacefront stan having the nerve to go in on MJ stans. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Your card has already been called. Go back to Creole Yaki and ask who one of her biggest influences is??? MJ ALL DAY.

    He wasn’t a versatile dancer?? LOL MJ had more range than most dancers( hip hop, jazz, tap dance, break dancing, robot, mime, interpretive, ballet ). Let me guess, you think Beyonce is the best dancer ever (DIES WITH LAUGHTER) The Jacksons Variety Show is proof of his dancing genius, not to mention his EPIC music videos. Most of his songs sound the same???LMAOOOO You probably couldn’t name 5 MJ songs let alone tell people what they sound like. Overrated. NO. Elvis was overrated. Never wrote a song in his damn life & couldn’t dance, but he was white & good looking so he got all the praise. Thriller is a BLUEPRINT for all albums. Each song had the potential to be a top 10 hit. Finally. who are these performers who are so much better than MJ (WAITS TO DIE OF MORE LAUGHTER)

    I dont understand why beyonce has never made a very public musical tribute –
    she was obviously soo influenced and she loves him, she could tottally pull off one of his songs soo good(with practice, and she would practice)

  77. pez June 23, 2010

    @JOE SULLIVAN

    Probably because Beyonce is too damn busy. Besides, her fans go to see her. Not to see tributes so #kanyeshrug

  78. Musicality June 23, 2010

    Lol @Ignorant ass Lace: I got over 100 million and counting that begs to differ. Biggest selling record of all time was a fluke? No your knowledge is a fluke. If MJ wasn’t original then what are all the artist out here trying to emulate him? Not only is Thriller great but Michael was the greatest child star that ever touched the stage also. Your talking about 40 mind boggling years in the game. Line them up but can’t NOBODY touch that and damn sure not nobody on the scene today. We just witness a GOD given phenom.

    Gotta admire Michael for the f*cking hypocritical a** bulls**t he put up with for so long. Media always riding his a** because he had the most, fame, power, and influence. Now they are trying to mess with his kids, just because they are white and inheriting a lot of money. Sad. The people who terrorized him have the nerve to act like they did nothing wrong.

    @MUSICALITY

    UM, I think your anger is misdirected. It was “S***” who made those ignorant comments. I defended MJ beneath the comments “S***” made. Reading is fundamental.

  81. MJfan June 23, 2010

    Honestly, with all due respect, I must say the following: HOW IN THE WORLD THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS JUST NOW GIVING MJ HIS PROPS. THE MAN IS DEAD , THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM ALL THIS LOVE AND SUPPORT WHEN THE MAN WAS ALIVE. WHEN THE MAN WAS GOING THROUGH THAT SHAM OF A TRIAL IN 05, WHERE WERE THESE PEOPLE, DID ANY CELEB REALLY GO ON T.V. AND RADIO TO SAY, I’M WITH YOU MJ, AND WE KNOW YOUR INNOCENT.DID ANYONE IN HOLLYWOOD, RYDE WITH MJ WHEN HE CALLED OUT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR THEIR MISTREATMENT AND THIEFERY OF THE BLACK MUSICIANS. NO. DID THEY HONOR MJ BY SHOWING THEIR RESPECT TO HIS ARTISTRY? NO. THERE IS AN INTERVIEW BY 2 SONY EXECUTIVES, WHO TALKED ABOUT IN DETAIL, HOW THE INDUSTRY DID MJ SHADY. I’M WITH JOE JACKSON ON THIS, THEY SHOULD HAVE HONORED MJ WHEN HE WAS ALIVE. THEY HAD THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER, A GENIUS, AND DISSED HIM BECAUSE THAT WAS THE IN THING TO DO. NOW THAT THE MASSES, I.E. THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS MJ CRAZY, THE INDUSTRY WANT TO JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON, AND GET SHINE. THAT IS SAD. MJ HELD IT DOWN FOR BLACK ARTISTS, AND THEY WOULDN’T HAVE THEIR CONTRACTS, OR THEIR ENDORSEMENT DEALS, IF IT WASN’T FOR MJ SHOWING THE WORLD, THAT BLACK ARTIRTS ARE MARKETABLE TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKETS. NOT ONE TIME, DID ANY OF THE ARTISTS THANK HIM, FOR BLOWING UP THE DOORS AND MAKING IT POSSIBLE. SO GIVE ME A BREAK , THAT I’M NOT IMPRESSED. EVEN DAVID GEST ,MJ BEST FRIEND AND THE BODYGUARDS, SONY EXECUTIVES TALKED ABOUT HOW HIS HOLLYWOOD FRIENDS(SOME) TURNED THEIR BACKS ON HIM. FORGIVE ME IF I’M NOT JADED BY THE TRIBUTES. THE MAN DIED, AND DIDN’T GET THE RESPECT HE DESERVE.

    BTW: STOP COMPARING HIM, OR PUTTING HIM IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS OTHER ARTISTS, MJ WAS IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN. AND FOR PEOPLE TO PUT HIM IN THE CATEGORY OF THESE NEW ARTISTS, OBVIOUSLY DIDN’T LOOK AT THIS IS IT, THE MAN WAS A CRAZY GENIUS, WHO TAKES THE TIME, TO MAKE A LIVE PERFORMANCE, SOUND IDENTICAL TO A RECORD, AND DEMANDS THAT HIS BACKUP SINGERS SOUND LIKE HIM, BECAUSE HE DID ALL HIS BACKGROUND VOCALS ON HIS RECORDS. NOT ONE ARTIST THAT IS SO POPULAR NOW THAT YOU YOUNGINS KISS THEIR B***. RESPECT THE KING, AND NEVER COMPARE HIM TO HIS COURT.

    @MJFAN

    F*** THE MEDIA & THE PHONY ASS CELEBS NOW SINGING MJ’S PRAISES!! They all were secretly jealous, hell one British asshole artist named Jarvis Cocker tried to crash MJ’s performance @ the 1996 Brit Awards and people though it was funny. Just because he was “offended by the imagery” GTFOHWTBS!!!!! Cher even showed her envy, saying MJ’s kids should be taken away & she doesn’t “give a f***” about how many fans he has (clearly she did). Then she calls Larry King on June 25, talking all this bs (while clowning his parental skills). All these m************ can go to hell. MJ was larger than the media, larger than the music industry, larger than life. That’s why the media is still using his name:FOR RATINGS!!! They’re even targeting his children. Around the world he was considered a hero, in America, he was treated like the s*** on the bottom of people’s shoes. It’s disgusting.

  83. MJfan June 23, 2010

    THERE IS NO USE IN GOING IN ON BEYONCE STANS, THEY WANT TO BELIEVE THAT A WOMAN THAT HAS SOLD ONLY 23 MILLION RECORDS, AND THAT INCLUDES WITH A GROUP, IS SOMEHOW MORE TALENTED AND VERSATILE THAT A MAN THAT SOLD OVER 250 MILLION RECORDS WITH A GROUP, BECAME A LEGEND BY THE TIME HE WAS A TEENAGER, AND THEN WENT ON TO SELL OVER 750 MILLION RECORDS SOLO, AND BASICALLY SOLD OVER A BILLION RECORDS, WORLDWIDE. HE SOLD OUT CONCERTS, MASS ENDORSEMENT DEALS. HIS RECORD COMPANDY GAVE HIM A 65 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT. NOONE HAS EVER BEAT THAT. MJ WAS INVESTING IN MUSIC CATALOGUES, WHAT ARE THESE YOUNG ARTISTS DOING, WHAT? CREATING FASHION LINES AND ACTING, SPOKESPERSON. MJ MADE HIS MONEY FROM MUSIC ALONE. WHO CAN SAY THAT? DON’T EVER TRY TO SAY MJ ISN’T THE KING AND SOMEHOW BEYONCE IS BETTER, BECAUSE YOU WILL GET SHUT DOWN. AND BY THE WAY, MJ HAD A 3 OCTAVE RANGE. WHICH IS UNNATURAL, AND THEN HE HAD A OPERATION TO MAKE HIS VOICE HIGHER FOR BETTER RANGE. PLEASE STOP IT WITH THE NONSENSE. MJ LIVED FOR HIS ART, AND HIS WORK ETHIC WAS UNNATURAL. HOW MANY FANS GO TO A NEW ARTIST CONCERT, AND PASS OUT JUST BY THEM SINGING? MJ POPULARITY WAS UNNATURAL, DEAL WITH THAT.

  84. MJfan June 23, 2010

    MJ KIDS ARE BIOLOGICALLY H IS, MJ GRANDFATHER IS THE SPLITTING IMAGE OF HIS OLDEST SON. AND BLANKET LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE MJ AS A BOY. AND PARIS LOOKS LIKE DEBBIE ROWE. PEOPLE FORGET THAT MJ PARENTS ARE BOTH MULTIETHIC. AND PEOPLE TALK MESS ABOUT MJ PARENTING SKILLS YET, HIS KIDS ARE WELL-MANNERED, AND HIGHLY INTELLIGENT, AND WELL-ROUNDED. THE ONLY REASON FOR THE MASKS, BLANKETS WAS BECAUSE DEBBIE ROWE DIDN’T WANT THE KIDS TO BE ENDANGERED. THERE WAS A KIDNAPPING PLOT. I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME AS WELL. AS LONG AS MJ KIDS WERE SAFE, OPINIONS DON’T MATTER. AND CHER IS THE LAST PERSON TO GIVE ADVICE OR CONDEMN A PERSON ON PARENTING . SHE BETTER BE GLAD NOONE WILL CALL HER OUT ON THE OBVIOUS.

    Oh and be real, Michael was on a higher level than Stevie and Aretha, only the Beatles and Elvis can compare.

    Lace: My bad but it was hard to tell where you were coming from from your message. 🙂

    @MJFAN
    THANKS FOR NOT LOSING YOUR TEMPER AND FOR SHUTTING DOWN THE IDIOTS WITH CLEAR CONCISE LOGIC.

    THE NERVE COMPARING BEYONCE TO THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIMES – MICHAEL JACKSON

    I HOPE U GO TO ANIMAL PLANET TV ONLINE AND WATCH LATOYA WITH BUBBLES. REMEMBER BUBBLES?? HE HADN’T SAW LATOYA IN YEARS BUT U COULD TELL HE KNEW HER. IT WAS FUN AND HEARTBREAKING AT THE SAME TIME.

  88. U DO DO IS STALKING CIARA June 24, 2010

    MY HEART IS STILL BROKEN OVER MICHAEL’S MISTREATMENT TOO. I DONT KNOW THAT ME OR MY FAMILY WILL EVER GET OVER IT.

    WHEN THESE FOOLS IN ENTERTAINMENT SIT BACK AND SAY NOTHING WHILE THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE CRUCIFIED IN THE PRESS, IT IS ALL ABOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

    It is when an issue is tailored,so as to not offend someone at the expense of accuracy and integrity of the statement/opinion. (remember the story of the Emperor has no clothes)

  89. Lili June 24, 2010

    Yall,I miss Michael!

  90. Macarena June 27, 2010

    Michael will always be in my heart,

    MICHAEL LIVES ON!, FOREVER
