I was doing an all nighter and sitting on the internet when i heard the news. Most people didn't hear til they woke up here in Australia, but I was on a forum at the time, and straight away someone posted something saying "Michael Jackson dead at 50.....Thoughts and favourite songs???" I thought it was a joke. Then more topics like that kept popping up, so I searched google. And Wow. I couldn't believe it. Utterly devastating. I had a little teary in my room I must admit. I think he was great. He was amazing, actually. An absolute legend, and a true performer. And in my opinion a very sensitive, kind and caring human being, who never lived a normal life. I still can't believe it.
Rest in peace.
