    He is the greatest loss to the music world. He is the one and only pop legend. His dance is awesome. We will always remember you, MJ. May you rest in peace. Let’s think of the good things abt him.

    I guess we can sweep that pesky little child molestation thing under the rug now that he’s dead. If the sparkled glove don’t fit…

    I can’t beleive Mike is gone,now people has no choice but to leave him alone just like the song said when that song came out,I liked it but,not enough people understood it or got the message, but I did and I respect that, he was still a person,and now he’s gone home to our father,so now I guess the media has to bother someone elese.No matter what happen he was still a person, so please JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE so he can rest in peace,I’ll mis you man but I know you’ll have lot’s of love on the other side because god word is all men are to be treated equal and he is with GOD! to the Jackson’s keep your head up everyday get a little better but it’s not going to happen over night I’ll never forget him.

    Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone! Maybe, now the American media realize the severity of their ways. JUST LEAVE ME ALONE. THAT IS WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO SAY. HE JUST WANTED TO LIVE HIS LIFE. JUST A LITTLE PEACE EVIDENTLY HE WAS ASKING FOR TOO MUCH.

    He is the king of pop and we should wait a long long time to get a legend as such.There will always be only one michael jackson,his talent will be admired and remembered always by all generations and his music will never died….I love not only the artist but the man his generosity,shyness,perfectionist and on stage he was simply the best THE KING OF POP umatched by anyone and make all his fans happy and for a while all problems were gone….thank you MJ.
