Michael Jackson was just pronounced dead in La. This has been a sad day losing two celebrities. It doesn't matter if you were a fan or not of either Michael or Farrah, it is sad for both of them to lose their lives so young.

In spite of his increasingly bizarre behavior, he was one of the most exciting performers and made some of the best records and videos of his generation. "Thriller" will stand as one of the best pop albums of all time. Michael, you are at peace at last.

This has indeed been a sad and shocking day. I couldn't believe the news when it first came on. Very well said Jan and Rick. Rest in peace Michael. Your music will live forever.

Gosh, I certainly loved his music. He was just a kid singer when I was a teenager and his music was such a part of my teen yrs. I think most people my age are taking a stroll down memory lane tonight.
He was a very troubled man, but I think he was handling things the only way he knew how. His music will remain but may the man finally have some peace. REST IN PEACE

It has been a horrible week for the entertainment industry. Some people believed Michael was evil, I always believed he never had a childhood and was just trying to have one by befriending and helping children. I might have been wrong and he may have been a monster, but he sure was talented. He was "used" by his parents, but he became a huge celebrity. Billy Jean, Beat It, Thriller, and even the days of the Jackson5-I'll be There, etc. Great music to have grown up with.

I pray he's finally at peace, too.

Well, the news media sure didn't waste any time speculating about everything. Good Lawd! He hasn't even been laid to rest yet. Let the Family and Fans grieve for goodness sake. I guess common decency is out the window now a days in a quest for ratings and sensationalism. I guess it was to be expected though in his case. I think it's a sad day for what used to be called journalism though.

I tried to get a ticket for the memorial. Staples' site came to a stand still within seconds of the announcement.

Now they are going to give a live video feed of the funeral to all TV networks.

It's beyond crazy now.

I was studying to become a funeral director (sort of reverse nursing) and had to come up with a business plan related to the industry. I thought there should be a funeral channel...kinda like court TV. They could show reruns of princess Diana, JFK, etc. Infomercials of preplanning, grief counseling and special live footage on occaisions such as these. Boy would I like to be signing that contract right now!
