RIPMichaelJackson

I will surely miss Michael Jackson, he is really worthy of the name King of Pop and he is certainly one of the greatest musicians of all time.

It's really so sad that only after his death, the public finally said anything positive about this amazing talent. When I see the old pictures of Michael as a child, it's heartbreaking to imagine what horror of a childhood he must have had, being forced to take on the limelight by an abusive father. No wonder he became that way later on in his adult years. Shame on those who only now say he was great when all the while, for years you only tormented this poor man in the media. What hypocrites! He's a legend now, that's all you have to say because you are the ones who killed him-who made him drug himself.

He died $400 million in debt and his creditors want some money back on their investment, otherwise you sheep wouldn't be so swept up by the hype of this child molestor. He overdosed because he was a drug addict. He looked like a burn victim by choice, it was his decision to mutilate his own face. I'll concede that 20 plus years ago he was an entertainment force and he was very media savvy and adept at marketing himself but his music hasn't been played much in 15 years because he was a disgusting monster.

brian is 100% correct - I'm sick of all his loony fans being dishonest about the type of person Jackson actually was. Yes, he was enormously talented, but even after Thriller he spent the few records that followed treading water, at least artistically speaking, his most important work already behind him. He didn't record at all after Invincible, a record I own and tried to like.

So Jackson was immensely gifted in his prime but Springsteen and Madonna were the 2 80s icons who continued to produce vital and important pieces post-1980s, not Jackson. And as a person he just wasn't a very good person.

Absolutely brilliant movie, i must say i had a few incertitudes before seeing the movie but they were all solved. If anyone had any speculations about his health before the concert movie shows that MJ was in fit state and all the executions were to perfection...my favorites were probably smooth criminal, they don't really care about us (the background scenery was impressive!!), thriller, and the earth song(who nearly brought tears to my eyes), all the rest were solid too but these stood out for me the most. I have to also give reference to the special back up dancers and the guitarist who were all stunning. Seriously everyone must see this movie now you will not be unfulfilled!!! there is no doubt that he is a true legend. R.I.P MJ .Just saw the film at watchthisisit.info
