    Michael Jackson my have been a man by today's

    standards but in his mind he was still a boy. Michael never had a normal childhood,and was frequently abused by his father. The media turned him into a freak,a pervert,a *********. But in reality he never was any of those things. I don't think he was ever really happy in his...

    Being an MJ fan made me a better person.

    I wanted to be as compassionate and helpful to the planet and children just like he was.

    Gone Too Soon

    I've been watching the media coverage of Michael Jackson. He was going to tour again soon, and he said at the news conference that it would be his last. Now I feel that it was never meant to be. I have heard that he only weighed about 110 pounds. He looked frail, but, then again...

    Growing up I heard all sorts of stories about Michael Jackson. I was first really introduced to his music when I was about 7,8 or 9, my uncle had a collection of music videos or a concert of him or something and he was showing us on his TV and that was when I first knew what the...

    Keep The Faith

    This gem is found on the "Dangerous" album and it is Top 10 on my MJ list. When I'm feeling down and need to be uplifted, this song is definitely on the playlist.

    I grew up listening to his music

    and I had the honour of meeting him when I was 5. No one could dance like him. He was a amazing artist. Now my son has just 'discovered' him so I get to hear all his songs all over again. :)

     It starts to sink in today, that Michael J belongs to his-story, no pun intended, there although I've got the feeling this guy had been dispossessed of his life from a very early stage in his life. Had this nostalgic streak in his songs. Now of course the media feed on his...

    He was the pervert who slept with boys when he was 50 years old. What a pervert and that is not a question but a true and non judgmental statement or assessment of him.

    He was so innocent. He was like a teddybear, you don't see a childs bedroom without. He was bad, a smooth criminal but healed the world and nobody saw it because they don't care about us. That's ignorant.
