Michael Jackson's children to take stage at awards

Posted: 03:02 PM ET

By Alan Duke, CNN

Los Angeles, California (CNN) - Michael Jackson's two eldest children are scheduled to take the stage this weekend to accept the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their father, Jackson family sources said.

It would be the first public appearance for Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, since their dramatic appearance at the memorial service 12 days after their father's death.

"The whole world is waiting to see these children blossom," said Brian Oxman, a lawyer for Joe Jackson.

Two sources close to the family said the youngest, 7-year-old Blanket, was not expected to appear, although they suggested that might change.

Contrary to some media reports, the sources said there was no plan for the children to sing or dance at the show.

The Recording Academy, which presents the Grammy Awards, will honor the late pop star with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Special Merit Awards ceremony Saturday evening in Los Angeles.

Video of the presentation is likely to be included in Sunday night's musical tribute to Jackson during the Grammy telecast, the sources said.

While Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, is expected to attend, Joe Jackson, his father, decided not to go because of his anger over the behind-the-scenes talks that led to the agreement to have the children accept the award, family sources said.

A well deserved award, Congratulations to the Jackson family. He was brilliant, phenomenal, amazing, and special.

Amazing, no one other than the children should represent their father. Im so happy they shall be there.

His children do him proud!

This is the way it should be! His children were the closest to MJ!

Wish I could see it live!

This is wonderful, Prince and Paris will be there to represent their father. Prince, Paris, and Blanket 3 precious blessings of Michael's life.

The family especially Michael's kids are always in my prayers.


doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 3:49 pm ET

Those are his children, and I don't have a problem with them accepting it.


Lori - Justice For Michael   January 29th, 2010 3:54 pm ET

While I am generally in favor of the media leaving Michael Jackson's children out of the public eye, I think it is appropriate for them to accept their father's posthumous lifetime achievement award. I will be watching this. I do wonder why the family spokesperson, Ken Sunshine, did not make this announcement? Why is Brian Oxman announcing it? He represents Mr. Joseph, and it seems from the article that Mr. Joseph is not going to attend? It would seem the most reliable souce for this announcement would be Mr. Sunshine or Mrs. Katherine's attorneys. In any case, I look forward to seeing the children present while their father is honored. I just wish Michael was here to accept his awards himself.

To all concerned:

Here is another blog about MJ. Please ignore the negativity that will come here in awhile. You know who they are. Misery loves company and please leave them alone. You have your view on MJ and this whole thing and you don't need the approval of anyone here on your opinion. It is a shame that several people have to post response like this up here, but it is true. Leave these individuals alone when they come here with their nonsense. Whatever the truth is, his family is going on with their lives and they REALLY are the ones dealing with this. I don't care how long you've been a "fan", we are on the outside looking in. We don't need to argue with one another. Its getting ridiculous.


Lori - Justice For Michael   January 29th, 2010 4:00 pm ET

...after reading the entire article, I am concerned by some of the other comments. I was especially disturbed to learn that according to the article that Mrs. Katherine has not been receiving the allowance from the estate that she was awarded due to another prior legal matter. Why was this old court case not resolved?

doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 4:09 pm ET

There was mention of this lawsuit on the previous blog. Ok, those men run his estate, but really I don't think they should decide who is going to accept the award.


MourningMJ   January 29th, 2010 4:15 pm ET

Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket were Michael’s most significant achievement and award of his life, so it is quite fitting they should accept on behalf of him. I’m confident the power of God and the strength of Michael will saturate MJ3 with courage and pride as they take the stage on behalf of their daddy to accept an award for the fruits of his labor in which he ultimately sacrificed his soul for. We may only witness this Grammy for one evening, but the lyrics and music of Michael will live on forever. And even if we are blessed to meet Michael on the other side, he will welcome us with endless orchestras and a song for each and every one of us.

@ doubtingthomas2010 January 29th, 2010 3:55 pm ET

I agree with your comment. The blogs have been ridiculous at times due to multiple individuals who seem to want to be combative with each other. I don't understand why it has to be a fight? We are all fans here and most everyone has had something relevent to contribute at one time or another. Are we not all here because we support Michael Jackson? Can we not be mature and agree to disagree? There are relevent bloggers on all sides of this topic. We should not make the mistake of assuming that a few speak for the "all". Don't we all want to learn what really happend? There are many anomalies....answers that make sense would be much appreciated.

Edelweiss   January 29th, 2010 4:28 pm ET

After reading this article, I have such an uneasy feeling. My heart goes out to these children and this family. I don't think anything will really ever be easy for them. So much scrutiny; so many opinions on their each and every move. If they do appear at the Grammy's, I really hope these lovely children won't be picked apart. Many have done so, and it will continue, undeservedly. Ugh... this tears me apart. 😦

Lori - Justice For Michael   January 29th, 2010 4:38 pm ET

@Mourning MJ "he ultimately sacrificed his soul for"?? I am a little confused by your post and maybe you could clarify your meaning. I understand that Michael sacrificed his life...but I am quite confident that he did not abandon, trade, or sacrifice his soul or compromise it in any way. I believe with all my heart and soul that Michael Jackson's soul is safe in the hands of God. Maybe I misconstrued your post? Sacrificing a soul seems a rather dark thing to do...

The Entertainment industry is well aware how Joe and
Jermaine have exploited every situation ..So I'm not
surprised by the the decision of the producers..
(Joe is shameless ,"asking for money, so he can live the high
life??" Joe has 9 other ADULT children )

Who better ,than his beautiful children to accept his "Lifetime
Achievement Award" It's a passing of the Torch "Michael's legacy"
to Prince Paris and Lil Blanket...

@MourningMJ

hello dear friend)
yeah, it's a nie idea for them to accept.. they are the closest to Michael )) and whatever people say but Michael's kids have to get used to spot lights and their fame... if they learn how to behave in spot lights as earlier as possible it will be better for them.. coz the interest of media towards them will be always huge

yeah, our radar is working again) happy to see you) i am fine) how are you dear?


still me just a new name   January 29th, 2010 4:51 pm ET

I am ok with Michael's children accepting his award.. .I am sure Michael drew his inspiration from them and children for a lot of what he wrote and sang...I wish the award will eventually become the "Michael Jackson Lifetime Achievement Award"...for Michael truly represents what a person can achieve in their lifetime...
for those that know how to get a petition going maybe we can get one started to have the award renamed.


doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 4:55 pm ET

As far as Joe Jackson, we just know what they are telling us. Who's to say that his other children don't help him finacially? And fyi he has been known to manage people in the industry and throw concerts. Believe me, if Micheal didn't come out and talk about his history with his father no one would be bashing him right now. That's their history and he stated countless times that he forgave him. There is a speech online were he said it with his own mouth. We don't know personally how hard it has been for him losing his son. Give the man a break and stop throwing stones.

@Thomas...of course it will. But, apparently nothing will stop those folks. I have friends on both sides of the fence and in the middle. I appreciate them all and enjoy their input. 🙂

@Mourning MJ–OK thanks for clearing that up...however, I was taught that we all only had one soul...so I am still a little confused. Are you saying we have one soul when we are living and then a different one that arrives in Heaven to be with God? Or that our "living soul" dies before our celestial soul reaches God's arms? Maybe I missed that lesson at catecism class.

@Diane-MI -sounds like you got it all covered! I also recieved my code from the Opus, have my 3D glasses and my DVD and BlueRay. I am still going to have to check out the Walmart one though. 🙂 And I need someone to hook up all my electronics...I am hoeplessly challenged on that front.

@Connie...maybe they have'nt got the court calendar updated yet. Docketing clerks always have so much to do.

@KINDNESS-
Good to hear you are doing well... We missed each other on the last few posts, lol. So happy Uncle Larry gave us some new blogs for the weekend; you know your the first name I always look for. I agree, that as much as our beloved Michael wanted his beautiful children out of the spotlight, it is bittersweet moments like these that the world will be glued to MJ3 for. I can only hope that the media uses "common sense" to maintain the children's privacy. Michael raised brillant children.

@STILL ME- Oh I love that "The Michael Jackson Lifetime Achievement Award"... That is so beautiful. What a very creative idea, Still Me.

Thank you jan, but if you've been following the blogs thing will change soon enough.

I'm just asking for those of us here that are tired of it, to really try to ignore the individuals-even if they try to call you out. I'm going to try to do so as well if i get a negative comment. They come with the negativity, throw everyone off and start with their same old thing. Let's just ignore them. People post countless things here on these blogs about MJ. Its a form of sharing. If you don't agree, don't answer to it-they weren't sharing their information with you anyway. I'm not going to give those individuals importance because we all know who they are. Its a shame that this won't be the last post like this up here, but just like they feel the need to be negative, I feel the need to post to ignore them.

That judgement should fall on Joe/brothers and not Kate...she should be getting her money...Joe is the one who made the shady deals and pulled her into them.

Someone has said, this would be exploiting the kids… no, I’m sure they are the only ones entitled to receive this award for their father. Noone else from family or friends. The children only! And I think, little Blanket will be there with his Grandmother in the first row, watching his siblings on stage. Would be wonderful! They will feel the love and admiration everyone has and I’m sure, they already KNOW who is/was their father and what he meant to the world. They lived so close together the last years, Michael surely told them a lot and teached them for the future.

MMJ, I saw you "there" and I did the same here as you ^___^

This is the first I have heard that Mrs. Katherine is not receiving her ccourt ordered allowance. I wonder if the other parties are being garnished for the judgment. I guess I need to do some research. This bothers me.

Claims against the estate must be made within 4 months of the Publication of the Notice of Claims date ...so hopefully the deadline will pass and the Executors can determine the value of the estate assets and debts.

Their father's death.

I am a terrible person because I think these blogs should not be used as chat rooms and should respect Mike's death...if that makes me a bad person so be it. I believe Mike needs respect in death as he should have received but did not always receive in life. Death hoax stuff needs to be taken to a death hoax site. These blogs support the fact that Mike died...and his death needs to be respected.
That is all I am looking for...that is what Mike deserves.

Let them do what they want to do. I'm sure if Michael didn't want this he would do something about it, if I'm not mistaken in the Barbara Walters interview she asked him what would you say if your son said he wanted to be on the stage like you. And Michael said he would let him, because it's up to him, but he would lay-out what could happen (i.e. the media, lack of playtime, etc)

I L.O.V.E. YOU MICHAEL.

@ Lori

Even if Katherine is not receiving money from the estate at this point – I think it's possible that she could be receiving life insurance $$ if he MJ her as a direct benefactor on a policy – isn't it? That's one of the ways to make sure people get $$ immediately so they don't have to wait for the estate to settle. What do you think?


helen   January 29th, 2010 5:33 pm ET

@ Connie – IL

How could Katherine not have gotten a penny when just last week it was reported all over the internet that the judge had raised the $60,000 to $85,000. Seems like we would have heard about her not getting a penny yet when all of that was reported. Oh yeah, I just remembered....this was all a dream! None of this really happened! Silly me. Must be why the next step in the opus saga is called Opus REALITY!

I love you, Mike! 🙂 🙂 🙂 And YES, I will be there!

Hi Stu I came by to post some relevant links and I find that I am gone for a few days and the imposter shows up to mess with the blog. I won't be blogging for now. Again, only placing relevant links.

@ Shelli
Hi, hope you are well. I appreciate the info you share on the blog. Bless you!!

@ helen
LMAO!!! Stop!!!!! I cannot stop laughing at this one today. That's right...it was "reported" that she was receiving an increase. Spin...spin...spin...I wonder if they're getting dizzy?


Lori - Justice For Michael   January 29th, 2010 5:42 pm ET

@Diane...Well life insurance is certainly a possibility; but I would suspect that it would have to be accounted for in the estate inventory. I hope Mrs. Katherine is getting the financial assistance that she is entitled too. It would seem likely that Michael would have had insurance policies as part of his complete estate plan. Of course, the public does not know what his estate plan is, so it is all a matter of speculation. Hopefully Michael created an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT) to pay for the estate taxes.

I cannot understand why it is a bad thing to expect the blogs to remain chat free and repsect Mike's death...why is that a bad thing to fight for respect for Mike??? He died and those who think otherwise should seek a death hoax site...this site specifically states 'their father died' in the topic, showing a picture of the children at the memorial and reporting of them accepting the award on behalf of their father... it even references the estate...Mike is dead...that is sad but fact. We do not need to prove it...the article speaks to it as being fact.

Carie, I wish I had an answer to that, but I don't. I can't help you. I also think that he should be respected and honored in death, but I am told I should respect others' opinions instead. Since when is death an "opinion". My mother is dead, and believe me it's not my opinion. It's a sad fact of life.

'Since when is death an opinion'...beautifully said. Any of us who have lost a loved one know that we would not want their death to be mocked and laughed at and made into a joke. Death is not a belief or opinion...it is a fact of life...and Mike died. Your mother died. My brother died. And they are not coming back...I wish they were but they are gone.

Victoria J   January 29th, 2010 5:55 pm ET

@Mourning MJ

Your first post of the day here simply states so beautifully why it is fitting for Michael's precious children to accept this award on his behalf. I must tell you, that I understand perfectly how Michael sacrificed his soul, MMJ, for a soul such as his was misunderstood. He was willing to put his soul (life) on the line, to give it up, to surrender it for what he felt and believed in his heart. The heart and soul are so interconnected in God’s design of our life, our being, our character, the essence of who we are and what we stand for. I believe the sacrifice for Michael was huge. I don’t even think we need to enumerate here all his sacrifices, because as people on this blog who love Michael, we understand what he gave up so that his heart and soul were expressed explicitly in his music and his life. To me, he did sacrifice his soul for a greater cause and for that I am thankful, for his music and his words touch a part of my soul that asks my heart…what are you willing to forfeit in your life for a greater cause? What are you afraid of? Michael drew strength from a higher power to be able to do that here in the flesh. His soul, his heart, his mind, his life was misunderstood, and now it seems everyone wants to understand; and even in that he continues to sacrifice what he could have had.

MICHAEL WOULD BE SO PROUD AND THANK GOD FOR THIS AWARD HE SURE DESERVES IT.
SAD THAT NOTHING HAD BEEN DONE WITH THE QUACK DOC.
WE STILL NEED TO SEE JUSTICE BEING SERVED FOR HIS UNTIMELY DEATH.


babycarie   January 29th, 2010 6:05 pm ET

These blogs have been a disrespectful joke for months but everyone allowed the lunacy to continue to 'keep the peace' at Michael's expense...he is mocked daily...disrespected daily...yet let's just ignote that and 'keep the peace.' BS! That was his entire life!!! And only Tom M. and Aphrodite had the courage to go against the lunacy and say 'hey, that's not right!'
Well hey...it's not right!!!
And those who continue in this manner are not here for Mike.

@ Connie – IL

See the first article Jan posted. I looked at it earlier. Surrendering in order to save the city money. Sounds just like Mike surrendering when he was "falsely accused". The tale of two truths as Ghosts of the Spouses has often pointed out. I got your email earlier. LOL!

I love you, Mike! 🙂 🙂 🙂

I was thinking it could be an impostor because he doesn't type the same as regular Michael..l.o.v.e. but no matter, whoever it is shouldn't waste their time getting angry at nonbelievers I've done that, and it is pointless.

ghosts of the spouses   January 29th, 2010 6:24 pm ET

The thing I hate is that every time you run out of arguments, saying that believers do not respect Michael died.
Apart from the fact that he is alive, but if he were really dead, let alone kill him twice. But is it too much to ask that you understand.

You would need a blog where you cry and complain about him – you are pathetic anyway so please stop it with this "respect"
First because they not are your own business
Second because it is alive.

And then the thing that is even more sad is these people who talk about respect, who came to sift through his life with things that think they know, thereby pushing for a person who had one foot in the grave when he worked at this is it – they tried to boycott the movie and have all accused of having "kidnapped" for the purpose.
Think before you write.


stuci   January 29th, 2010 6:27 pm ET

Carie,noo!There are peaples,who say realy the most horrible things with the agliest words you can imagen about MJ.No moderating at all.Disquasting!


doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 6:28 pm ET

To all concerned, as you can tell its best to continue and ignore. Let them huff and puff. You don't defend with negativity. And what is the point of fighting on a blog???? MJ proved he was a strong man, writing negative comments to someone just leads to foolishness. Please continue to ignore. They just want you to answer them.


doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 6:30 pm ET

ghost of spouses-just ignore it. How do you feel about the kids going to the Grammy's. They just want you to address them. Leave them to the misery. Some here are falling for their trap. Please don't.

doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 6:33 pm ET

@Tamara- please ignore it. I don't think that was who you think it was. I think someone posted that just to get things started.


babycarie   January 29th, 2010 6:33 pm ET

I will never stop fighting for respect for Mike...anyone who believes he faked his death and lied to the world is disrespecting his death and him...and until that garbage stops, we will continue our fight. The hoax crap is just that...and to sit passively by and watch this blatant ignorance would be ignorant of me. Death is not a belief it is a fact...and Michael is dead.
If we have to see all the nonsense abut clues and hints and disrespectful bull, then we will continue to blog our truth.
Why is this such an anger trigger??? Think about that.

HAPPY LYRICS

Sadness had been close as my next of kin
Then Happy came one day, chased my blues away
My life began when Happy smiled
Sweet like candy to a child
Stay here and love me just a while
Let Sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was

Happy, that's you
You made my life brand new
Lost as a little lamb was I till you came in
My life began when Happy smiled
Sweet like candy to a child
Stay here and love me just a while
Let Sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was
(Till now)

Where have I been?
What lifetime was I in?
Suspended between time and space
Lonely until Happy came smiling up at me
Sadness had no choice but to flee
I said a prayer so silently
Let Sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was till now


Maria Copelli   January 29th, 2010 6:48 pm ET

@VICTORIA RE: your 5:55 post.

Thank you Victoria, so kindly for your gentle, yet powerful words. I am extremely appreciative of your support. I was questioned earlier in this forum what my post meant and you have found a way to explain it in such a touching way, but yet so simple as well. As we know, the word "soul" has more than one meaning, but I am confident to say that Michael's soul in spirit form is certainly wrapped up warm and safe, just like a "blanket". Michael indeed made multiple sacrafices, so many overlooked and underestimated. Thank you Victoria, as always, for your loving words.

@ MARIA COPELLI RE: 6:44 post

Wow, thank you Maria. Thank you for your kind words. I can't imagine a more difficult, painful but yet perpetually rewarding experience as a single parent. I know you must certainly harness the strength that God has given you to manage this challenge. I've always said that you don't sop parenting your child because they are an adult. You will always be a mother, Maria, just like me. We will always be a child as well. Our children are certainly rewards; I am blessed that God has given me such a gift. A gift that He trusted me with to nourish and guide; replenish and remind as well. MJ3 will never forget their daddy's magic. Ever. Thank you, Maria- and blessings to you.

@BABYCARIE-
Hi, I hope the baby is doing well! Make sure you get plenty of rest- BC will keep you up the rest of your life, lol. You're going to be a good mom, Carie. Let me know when the MJ maternity wear makes it over your way...

I wonder,everybody just read the 1. part of the article.Read it all!They dont know where to end to stap on this family.This is supoze to be and avard for MJ,a big one,for life time,and thenn they abase hos family with this.I am very angry about this!And both side should be.This is stap on Michael.


Edelweiss   January 29th, 2010 7:39 pm ET

@ stuci

I think the way the article is written is misleading. My guess is that an award such as this is considered part of his career, which in turn, is being handled by the estate administrators, posthumously. Therefore, they are the direct contact point for something like this rather than the family. However, if the estate administrators were on the ball, they would of course be relaying this type of decision on to Katherine Jackson and the rest of the family. I think it is all semanitics and making sure no ones toes are stepped on, when the reality is...the families' toes are the ones who are continually stepped on.


MarinaneS   January 29th, 2010 7:40 pm ET

It can be said to be the first public access children of Michael and we will support them.
And it's wonderful that they will receive Grammy for their father.
I think Michael is certainly very proud of their children.


doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 7:41 pm ET

Now you see why they want a family member to be apart of running the estate.


stuci   January 29th, 2010 7:42 pm ET

Edelweiss,this is weird.This is not about Money,this is about Michael as a person,who he was,the bigest entertainer,and he have muther and childrens,who should have the right for this.And the 1 person invitacion is just crasy...


stuci   January 29th, 2010 7:44 pm ET

Doubtt,yeah,exactly!This is not about money!O my goodnes!


Anne   January 29th, 2010 7:46 pm ET

I voted for Michael Jackson's 1988 concert in the Madison Square Garden poll so he wins the top spot since that is the one he is ahead in. We do not want Led Zepplin to win because of a split vote for two different MJ concerts.


Edelweiss   January 29th, 2010 7:46 pm ET

It is really a sticky situation, legally. The advantage to having independent third parties as administrators is impartiality. Generally speaking, it could be argued that family members could sway things to favor themselves or certain parties (those other than the parties specified by MJ, himself.) In my opinion, the administrators should be a bit more sensitive to the point of view of the family in situations such as these. Perhaps they do not want to show favoritism to anyone within the family. Hard to say. BTW, I am not a lawyer, but I know a LOT of them!

I copied this from RadarOnline:

"This doctor is my hero. He killed that scaumbag of a child molester. Leave the doctor alone. he is a true hero"

Now all of us here have an admiration of MJ, no matter what we believe. We should respect each other , at least we're not dealing with people like that posting here.

Lori - Justice For Michael   January 29th, 2010 8:11 pm ET

@Victoria J – so nice to see you again on the bloggy.I have missed you at the chats on the rare occassions that I have had time to visit them recently. I appreciate your attempt at clarification of Mourning MJ previous posts-it is wonderful that your thoughts are so in tune with each other. That is a rare friendship, indeed. To answer your rhetorical question, there are many things that I am willing to sacrifice, however, my immortal soul is not one of them, and while I believe that Michael elected to sacrifice many, many things, I do not think he included his immortal soul in that list, IMHO opinion of course, as I do not presume to speak for any one else, let alone Michael or God, nor do I tend to preach from the pulpit. I leave that to the many members of my family who are clergy.

@
"Death is not an opinion it is a fact" ...My very wise blogger friend Nicole told me that way back in the summer to keep me on track....I remember the time clearly....reality is often very sad. Thank you, Nicole. 🙂

I also agree that if this current report is accurate, that it is sad that the Grammy folks didn't invite members of the Jackson family directly. There are some things that the estate attorneys are not in charge of and family is one of them. Another reason why it might have been a good idea to include at least one Jackson in the administration of the estate....IMHO.

@Edelweiss...yes indeed, there certainly seems to be an over abundance of attorneys, advisors, spokespersons and the ubiquitous "unnamed source close to ____" fill in the blank with your choice of the following: the investigation; the DA; the family, etc.

No one ever has to say a negative word about Joe Jackson because his behavior speaks for itself.

His attorney says Brian Oxman says Joe Jackson is not going to an event designed to honor the lifetime achievement of his deceased son because he is "angry". I sincerely hope out of respect for his son and for the sake of his grandchildren and his wife Katherine that he does show up at the Grammys' Saturday evening when MJ is honored.


Maria Copelli   January 29th, 2010 8:26 pm ET

Doubting Thomas,thanks for the Radaronline,post ,.WOW ,it truly amazes me to see these kind of hateful responses!This is clearly a person ,who clearly doesnt know Michael,and goes along with the mainstream media tales,malicious lies,I cannot even imagine how hurtful this is for ALL of the Jackson family.This has got to stop.I need to set the record straight,I am not against ALL the media,I am against those that write lies ,to hurt innocent people for higher ratings and millions,of dollars.And write and report these lies ,as if they are FACTS.One thing I have learned since 6-25-09 is to DIG for the truth ,dont just sit and swallow ,'THINK,ANALYZE,QUESTION'.

@VICTORIA-

I just went back to review your post again, I thought there was something that perhaps I missed. No where in your post did I see you mention immortal soul. I am relieved to know that we both are aware there is more than one definition for the word "soul" and you understood my first post without question or challenge as I clearly understood yours as well without question or challenge. Thank you always for your beautiful words of encouragement and for keeping Michael in that very human light that so many overlook or underestimate.

doubtingthomas2010   January 29th, 2010 8:57 pm ET

@Edelweiss and Maria C- I posted that to show that there are other opinions of MJ that are truly disrespectful. No one who blogs here on the regular promotes that. Everyone here has a positive view on the man and I think the blogs should reflect that instead of the same thing over and over again. I've never seen those kinds of post here but they do exist and worst things are written than that. So it makes no sense for us all who admire this man to be negative towards each other.

Hey, everyone...do yourself a favor by not reading the comments on those tabloid sites. They are disgusting and hateful and I am stunned at how fowl people can be towards someone, even if they don't like them. There is something not right with a person who behaves that way and it may not do with the matter at hand but something that has happened in their past. So, my point is, try not to read that stuff. Save yourself some anguish.

I'm looking forward to seeing Paris and Prince at the Grammy's, especially for this special award that I'm sure means very much to them. And my feeling is that if this was not the right thing to do, for whatever reason, the Jackson family wouldn't allow it because they are very protective of them.

christine canada   January 29th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

I'm all for Michael's children being able to accept his lifetime achievement award as long as they truly want to do it and are closely guarded (as much as possible) from the media. As his children, they deserve to be a part of this honour and to witness the fans' love for their father. Also, as some have already said, Paris' speech at the memorial probably did more to humanize Michael and to shine a light on Michael's heart and soul for any fence sitters who were watching. Hopefully at the Grammy's she will have the confidence and strength to honour her daddy and to enlighten the world. If little Blanket wants to join his siblings I hope he gets the opportunity – I just don't want him to feel left out.

______________________________________________________

All ‘This’ and more
DVD release of final Jackson rehearsals is loaded with extras
BY JEN CHANEY, Washington Post
January 29, 2010

“Michael Jackson’s This Is It” isn’t a movie, exactly. It’s more a collection of choreographed walk-throughs and semi-sung performances captured during rehearsals for what would have been Jackson’s splashy return to the concert stage, had he not died unexpectedly last June at the age of 50.

To characterize it as footage rather than a film may sound like a criticism; it isn’t. Actually, the behind-the-scenes, high-class-home-movie vibe of “This Is It,” coupled with the excellent extras that appear on the DVD ($29) and Blu-ray ($40) versions released Tuesday, make this glimpse of/tribute to MJ a more satisfying experience now that it can be viewed in one’s own living room. Somehow, watching the film at home sets a more appropriate tone for a documentary that could have been a special feature on a Michael Jackson concert DVD.

Naturally, people who haven’t seen “It” may be tempted to pore over each frame, searching for clues that Jackson was a man addled, ill and days away from his own demise. They won’t find them. Granted, Jackson never completely belts out any of his many hits, from “Wanna Be Startin’ Something” to “Beat It” to “Black or White,” noting more than once that he’s trying to “save his voice” for the series of 50 dates he was about to embark on at London’s O2 Arena. But he still hits the high notes in “Human Nature.” And there is certainly no question, as he demonstrates while throwing down some signature “Billie Jean” moves, that Jackson still had the capacity to shake his spindly body down to the ground.

While the film gives us a glimpse of what the show might have looked like, the special features offer a wider, more detailed view. A 40- minute documentary, “Staging the Return,” shows us more of the stage props and over-the-top gimmickry that was planned, from the fluttering ghostly puppets slated to swoop above the audience during “Thriller” to the “MJ Air” jet that Jackson was to board as part of his grand finale.

In “The Gloved One,” one of three featurettes, costume designer Zaldy shows off the intricate suits — often bedazzled beyond reason with Swarovski crystals — he designed for Jackson, including a “Billie Jean” ensemble crafted in conjunction with Phillips Technology so it could appropriately light up in synch with the beat. And two of the short films created for the tour, the nearly four-minute “Thriller” vignette and the “Smooth Criminal” short that fuses footage of Jackson with 1940s movie clips of Rita Hayworth and Humphrey Bogart, also can be seen in their entirety on the Blu-ray.

Collectively, it all suggests how spectacular these concerts could have been, and how much of a personal and artistic loss the crew surely felt when it all came to a sudden halt. The DVD shies away, wisely, from trafficking in that grief, although a “Memories of Michael” featurette certainly does its share of lavishing praise on the pop icon. For those seeking to hear directly from Jackson, there are sadly no interviews with him here, just a few peeks at production meetings during which Jackson munches on crackers, softly shares his opinions and, occasionally, bursts out laughing.

“This Is It” may not tell us anything radically new about the glitter-gloved man behind it, as the DVD case promises. But it definitely reveals that in those final days before his death, Jackson and his mammoth creative team had a pretty good sense of how to put on a show.

This is a very thoughtful reflection on what Michael meant to so many. I know it is lengthy, but I found it to be touching - especially given the fact that his sweet babies are accepting an award on his behalf at tomorrow's pre-Grammy function.

If some bloggers can pause with the bickering long enough to read this, the writer below reminds all of Michael's fans why he is loved - and why we miss him so much.
______________________________________________________

What Michael Jackson Taught the World
By Linda Higgins

As I sit here writing this on the seven month anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, fans, friends and family are still struggling to come to terms with why someone so special had to be taken from this earth so soon. In my opinion, there is only one way to make sense of such a tragedy and that is to look for the meaning behind it.

Michael felt he had a higher purpose to his life, which was "to unite the world through love and music" as he stated in his autobiography Moonwalk. I agree with that, because there are many things about his life that points to him having a higher purpose.

Endowed with phenomenal talent that manifested itself at an early age, he saw it as a gift from God and he felt he was meant to cultivate it and use it for the greater good. In fact, he viewed it as a sin not to do so.

His dedication to his craft allowed him to create global success unmatched by anyone else; which also made him the most famous person in the world. Being known by virtually everyone throughout the globe, indicates to me that something greater is at work. Gladys Knight once said in an interview about him: "Not many people are allowed that much fame." Therefore, the fact that he was able to amass such fame shows that whatever his purpose was, it was meant to affect the entire world. She also helped us realize that with great gifts, comes great responsibility: "To whom much is given, much is required," she said.

Some of the gifts he was given to help him fulfill that purpose are evident. They came in the form of talents. He was a brilliant entertainer who brought joy and happiness to millions of fans with his extraordinary music and dance. He has influenced so many people with his creativity and talent. Musicians are inspired by him. Dancers want to imitate him and songwriters want to create with the same sensitivity.

Other gifts are not so obvious; they came in the form of challenges. Challenges he had to endure in order to reflect back to us lessons we were meant to learn. He was given the challenge of a condition that changed the color of his skin. He had people from all races criticize him for that, yet he was one of the few people who honestly embraced all races. The irony of that reveals a lesson in itself. Could that be why he was inspired to write the song "Black or White?"

He was also given the challenge of not having a normal childhood, which caused him to compensate later by creating Neverland. That opened him up to criticism from those who misunderstood his actions. What each person saw in Neverland, whether positive or negative, reflected a perception they had already formed about him.

Albert Einstein once said, "The most important decision we make, is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe." Your answer to that indicates how you interpret events, circumstances and people. It is the reason why one person is able to experience an event in a positive way and another person experience’s that same event in a negative way.

The same concept applies to Michael Jackson. Although millions of people loved his music, many of them didn’t embrace him. They made up their minds years ago when things about him were sensationalized by the media. Therefore, when he was charged with those horrible allegations, much of the world found it easy to believe, because the perception of him had already been shaped in a negative way.

It was during this time that he experienced some of the darkest days he would ever encounter. At a time when he needed people to be there for him most, not very many were. Yet, through it all, he never lost his love for humanity. Again, here was someone able to see nothing but good in others, yet so many people couldn’t see the good in him.

One heart wrenching moment during his memorial service would change that forever though. When Paris said goodbye to her father, it was her words that allowed the world to see that he was a loving, caring human being. "Ever since I was born," she uttered, "Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine, and I just want to say, ‘I love him…so much’."

It was then that the world hung their heads in shame as the realization that he had been falsely portrayed came to light. Her emotional goodbye to her daddy was enough to open hearts in a way that let people know there was more to him than met the eye. From that point on, people became obsessed with learning the truth about him, which led to the shocking discovery of all the injustice he had encountered.

There is guilt felt by many people now because we had no idea of the extent to how badly he was treated. It was only after he died that we became aware of the depth of it. We now ask ourselves, if we had known then what we know now, could we have made a difference somehow? Unfortunately, we will never know, but I feel strongly that he had a higher purpose to his life and that we are meant to learn from it, otherwise his suffering will have been all for not.

When he was alive, the world was too busy judging the messenger that his message couldn’t be heard. The lesson we are meant to learn, the message he tried to convey while he was living, is to care for humanity; to treat people with dignity and respect, because when you do, love grows.

When you find the good that exists in another person, you begin to feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when she opened the door to a world fill with color. You see them through different eyes, the eyes of Love. Love is the ultimate truth, so when you look at someone through those eyes, you are seeing the truth of who they really are. Once that happens, it becomes impossible to judge them in a critical manner anymore, because their true essence has been revealed to you.

The more you look for the goodness in others, the stronger the love within you grows and the more you are able to spread it throughout the world. That love compels you to treat everyone with kindness, caring and compassion. He knew that. He saw the good in everyone, but unfortunately, not everyone was able to see the good in him, until he died. Therein lies the lesson.

I believe Michael Jackson fulfilled his purpose, because he taught the world that love is the answer to all that we are. As you find the good that exists in others, you discover the love that exists within you. It’s only then that you can help make the world a better place. The real tragedy is that it took him having to die in order for us to realize it.

Lori - I'm glad that Michael's children are receiving their dad's award - instead of Jermaine and his children.

Everything else in the article will work itself out. What goes around, comes around.

Allegedly, Jermaine was the braintrust regarding the concerts that he and his parents were sued over back in the day. (Michael was dragged into it because, well, he's Michael Jackson.) Notice that Michael took care of his part because, well, it wasn't his idea to begin with.

If anyone should have to pay for the judgment, it should be Jermaine. His wife has deep pockets. It wouldn't be a hardship to relieve Mrs. K of that pressure.

But anyway...

I personally feel that Omarion has a relevant point. Both he and singers/dancers like Chris Brown idolized Michael - and Michael knew it.

I am sure that the tribute will be fantastic. I also cannot help but wonder if it is another instance of AEG & others milking the tragedy for every penny the conglomerate invested in the London shows.

May not be true, but it is my opinion.

Omarion Throws Fit Over Grammy 'Snub'
January 29, 2010

Former B2K singer Omarion, got all in a tizzy recently over his perceived "snub" by the Grammy committee. In an interview with Vibe, the singer explained his shock at not being included in their tribute to Michael Jackson.

"If I'm not a part of that, then that's not ... I'm not gonna say it's wack," Omarion complained. "But I'm just saying, everyone knows what I do, so if you gon' have an MJ tribute ... I take that back because Stevie [Wonder] did an MJ tribute. Everyone loved Michael. I'm not gon' say that. I'm just meaning the performance [aspect]. How you gon' have a Michael tribute without the playboy? [Laughs]. That's my only thing, and I mean this in the humblest and the most competitive way. I'm competitive - that's what the game is about. Especially after Mike passed away."

While the tribute will not include the diminutive singer, it does feature Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion and Smokey Robinson.

Omarion was recently tapped to judge Season Five of 'America's Best Dance Crew' on MTV. His third album, 'Ollusion' is in stores now.

thank you very much for that article, it is beautifully written.

Regarding the last paragraph, I don't feel that Michael taught me that "love is the answer to all that we are. As you find the good that exists in others, you discover the love that exists within you. It’s only then that you can help make the world a better place. " However, Michael most certainly personified that teaching.

That level of goodness is amazing to see and sadly some still do not recognize it.

It makes me very happy to know the children are recieving Michaels Lifetime Achievment award. They are the ones that should accept this on behalf of thier father. I am looking forward to watching this on Sunday.
This blog is referring to Michaels children, everyone ,please try your very best and keep the peace on this blog.
Remember everyon, this blog is not about us. This blog is nothing personal either. It's about Michaels children recieving his lifetime award.
You guys fight so much and say such mean things to each other.
why what is the purpose of all this hate.
Wake up everyone.. These blogs are about Michael. The most kindest, loving, caring, giving human being that ever existed.
Thank-GOD Michael will never be able to see what these blogs have become, but someday his children just might see these blogs. Is this what you want Michaels children to see? Do you really want his children to see all the hate and anger amongst his fans?
What ever happened to caring for the living-To Make A Better World?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   January 30th, 2010 12:27 am ET

Doubtingthomas - I'm aware that the tribute will cross genres.

Michael Jackson crossed genres.

My point in posting the Omarion article is that Omarion is a talented dancer who flawlessly emulates Michael's moves - and that Michael knew that about both Omarion, Chris Brown, and Ginuwine, among others.

My comment took nothing away from other genres. Michael adopted many of his famous moves from Jackie Wilson, James Brown, and many more of the soulful artists before him.

That is Omarion's beef with being excluded. And that is my point as well.

For those who don't understand what I'm getting at, just keep stepping. I'm not here to debate it to death.

I just want to share relevant information about Michael, his family, and his peers to those who are open to receiving it.

Joe Jackson tells TMZ Prince and Paris have each prepared a speech. Joe says they are both great speakers and Paris has been working on her speech for a week.

As for the buzz that the kids will perform at the Grammys on Sunday - Joe says it ain't happening.

Michael Jackson deserved the award and other recognations as well, as Michael is number one in this world for all things he did and done. No One would ever do the same as what Michael did and done, as never had happened before for other person doing such as what Michael did during his life. Michael is a master of a kind hearted persons of the world, he is a King of POP, a king of UNIVERS, and most of all was also a good father of his three children. That would be normal procedur if His children coming to accept the award as People in every corner of the street arround the world appreciated and love Michael dearly very deeply without ending, all the time, every seconde of the days, who would like I beleive, to see Michael's children as well, after the tragic day. It is the reality and we missed him always very much all the time n days. We love you Michael, we missed you. VIVA Michael Jackson FOREVER.

@Lynn-IL - I see you too....I haven't watched my TII DVD yet...but I do know what jacket you are talking about..I love the bling. I guess that is why I am adding a pound of crystals to each dance costume....I truly believe that there is no such thing as too much bling...and you can quote me on that. LOL Do you remember that night when Nicole was gonna bedazzle a bright orange prison jumpsuit for CM? Fun times.

Lynn, I think the revocation of the will may have been the handwritten one presented to the court by one of the women claiming to be Mrs. MJ...I think the one from the UK...the spousal property hearings are in reference to her as well, I believe. I also though I read somewhere that a hearing re: family allowance was set for sometime in May. Boy would I like to get my hands on that court file....I could read it for days.

Susan62509   January 30th, 2010 7:22 am ET

Nichole S:
Linda Higgins article was beautifully written. Thank you for sharing that with all of us.

1. Katherine is getting a partial allowance. Even though her allowance is getting garnished, a creditor cannot take 100% of your income. It is like child support. You have a percentage that you can keep for survival. The courts can't let you starve. Also, I'm sure Jermaine is getting garnished also. If Joe receives an allowance from the estate, that will be garnished also. Joe isn't going to gain much of anything by pursuing the allowance he feels is due to him.

Per the topic above, Joe has zero say-so regarding rearing or decision making with the J3. He even submitted a letter to the probate court stating that.

I read that Katherine did not receive any tickets for the Grammys until the last minute. Whoever went to the probate court to get permission for the children to attend, didn't need to go there. The executors referred them to the Grammy producers.

Conrad Murray's name will not appear on the D.A. or L.A.P.D. websites until an arrest is made. An investigation has been ongoing for the past 7 months. Once he is arrested & charged, a case # will be assigned to him and then you will see info appear on those websites.

The probate case has not been updated as of today, Saturday. The clerk is busy or may have been absent on Friday. The cases heard on Jan. 28 regarding revocation of the will was for Billie Jean Jackson. Joe's appeal for an allowance was continued until May 26. Joe needs to bring evidence for his claim.


Susan62509   January 30th, 2010 7:28 am ET

From what I understand, the Lifetime Achievement Awards will be given out Saturday evening at the Wilshire Theatre. The tribute for MJ will be held Sunday evening at the Staples Center.

It would be nice if the Grammy's would make an exception and present the award for MJ on Sunday.

I'm pleased that MJ's children will receive his award. Hopefully, after this big event, Katherine will continue to keep them protected from the media until they reach age 18.


Susan62509   January 30th, 2010 7:37 am ET

I got one thing. The last allowance increase was for the children not Katherine.

The blog was very nice today. Good work everybody.

Hi, yes its about waiting and being patient. Have a look back at cris' message above at 3.23amET – that is MJ's choreographer for This is It – just look at the time of day they were tweeting! And the dates! Plenty of food for thought....lol.

I must be off, be well, much love.


Marguerite   January 30th, 2010 9:14 am ET

Michael IS very much Alive !!!!!!


MaryRM   January 30th, 2010 9:28 am ET

On a happier note, I am glad to see Michael's oldest 2 accepting the award for their father, that could be very cathartic and healing for them.

They and the rest of the Jackson family are in my prayers.


Shelli Misoyianis   January 30th, 2010 9:45 am ET

MaryRM,

I saw that, and I'm sure others have as well. Do some research into Firpo Carr, Michael's close friend. 😉

Respect for Mike!!!!!

When the sun comes out,
and lights up the sky,
it opens our minds,
with love for you and for I!
It warms our souls,
and protects our spirits,
it gives love a chance,
for all good merits!
The brightness of the light,
captures one's eye,
a sun kiss to the nose,
and hug from the sky!
The beauty of its color,
brightens the day,
a gift from mother earth,
a lovely spiritual bouquet!

Bless the Sun~

Prince and Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson's two oldest children, have been sweating over addressing the audience at tonight's Special Merit Awards ceremony .. where their dad will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Joe Jackson tells TMZ Prince and Paris have each prepared a speech. Joe says they are both great speakers and Paris has been working on her speech for a week.

As for the buzz that the kids will perform at the Grammys on Sunday - Joe says it ain't happening.

Shelli Misoyianis   January 30th, 2010 10:15 am ET

Stu,

Firpo Carr, Michael's close friend, more than likely is the source of those news releases. 🙂

Dr. Firpo W. Carr is a best-selling author who resides in the Los Angeles area, and who hails originally from Watts via South-Central. He is an internationally known author, scholar, lecturer, former radio show producer, former radio show host, university instructor, documentary producer/writer/director, and former newspaper columnist. He has been a member of the L.A.P.D. and still appears to be affiliated with them.

When peace is felt,
it creates a beautiful serenity,
A forgivness from the heart,
with total amenity!
A silence fills,
one's soul and spirit,
a blessing with a light,
for ones mind to inherit!
Bow your head,
and feel it in the flesh,
it will cleanse your heart,
and totally refresh!
For it is so freeing,
to one's nature and mind,
touch it and feel it
..for it is so kind!

Bless Peace~

Maria Copelli   January 30th, 2010 10:36 am ET

Shelli,good day to you my neighbor!If you are ever near where I live I would Love to meet you!!!!I wanted to say ,Dr.Carr,has done such aheart warming job in his writings on Michael.At the end of one of his articles he said ,he has amoral,and legal responsibilty to Michael,and from all I have seen and read from Firpo,he is doing his very best to fulfill this .Michael Love ,some mths back suggested we read his articles on Mj ,It is good advice!I have learned so much since all this began,and through it all ,my Love for humanity,and Michael have grown.I feel he has been so misunderstood,I am sure he felt misunderstood for the better part of his life.Sometimes when one is a visionary ,like Henry Ford,Einstein,P.T.Barnum,people lift their brows,and say 'what a nut!'But look at there legacies,there achievments,yes people laughed and mocked them too.But ahh,look at the end result!So these visionaries like Michael were 'unstoppable' they just kept on 'keepin on'.And even though we may never fully understand their thought process,we SEE the end results!!My daughter is a visionary also,and even when I dont get what she sees,i am always blown away by the END result!!!!When I bake ,i try to think about things that we dont see in the every day bakery case.Yes this is tiny in comparison ,to what these great people have done,but somehow ,I get it!No award in this world can give Michael what he always wanted ,and needed ,and that is ,'TO LOVE AND TO BE TRULY LOVED',in return.Love to you my new friend,Maria C.


stuci   January 30th, 2010 10:39 am ET

Ohhh gash Shelly!Alvais make me confused...But anyway,even,if its him,do you tink,he would doo this big le?He would got in jail for this,if somebody finde out.

We should ask Allison Duboi...Maybe she knows,whats the true... lol


Maria Copelli   January 30th, 2010 10:58 am ET

Shelli please know I am always happy for Michael ,whenever he is given an award!!I am proud that his beautiful children will be the ones to step up ,and receive this ,much deserved award for their Daddy!!I mean to say ,Michael used his celebrity ,to help so many causes,so many peolpe,with so much Love in his heart.
I feel very happy and emotional for this wonderful man,and his entire family. Love to you Shelli,Maria C

Good morning everyone,
This is a beautiful article lets not ugly it up.

I am glad that the children are accepting the award for ~Michael~ those children are just beautiful.I hope they bring the crowd to their feet. Kleenex ready and waiting.


Shelli Misoyianis   January 30th, 2010 11:38 am ET

Stu,

LOL. 😀 No one is going to jail, Hon. Nothing illegal has been done. We've mentioned before...the key words are ~confidentiality agreement~.
😉 It's amazing the info you can find when you really dig! lol. And you learn a lot!

Neighbor Maria! 😀

Good morning and Happy Saturday to you! 😀 Firpo Carr's articles are inspiring to read, and they really help connect the dots! People always mock who and what they don't understand, but in the end, the joke is on them. It's so important to be immensely open-minded, determined, and non-conforming to achieve the level of greatness Michael, Einstein, Barnum, and countless others have achieved. Just because something doesn't "fit" within your realm of comprehension does not mean it is not possible! That can bear the fruits of hopelessness. Genius and innovation go hand in hand. To say that a past achievement can't be topped is close-minded and discouraging. Michael has ALWAYS tried to top himself, and from the look of things right now, he probably has (times ten)! He's going to be performing in 3-D LIVE at the Grammys! And the best is yet to come!! You always have to keep reaching for the stars and see how high you can go. Records are made to be broken! Believe. Create. Innovate.

Luv,
SHELLI 🙂

@ Shelli

I second your post at 11:38 a.m. this morning! Brilliance and genius require one to be completely outside of the box and outside the realm of normal. Michael has always wanted to do what others think is impossible and has always found a way to achieve it. He and his "cast" (including Firpo Carr) are in full compliance and within the boundaries allowed them by performance art legislation, entertainment contracts, and confidentiality contracts.

We love you, Mike! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Let the show continue....


This is it!   January 30th, 2010 12:27 pm ET

Michael our man,
Michael our love,
do you miss your fans,
and wearing the glove?
We miss you,
more than you know,
the dancing and the singing,
that wonderful beautiful show!
Thank God for our memory,
for you are placed there,
dancing in our hearts,
and singing to our ear!
Tucked away and shielded,
with special care,
No one to harm,
for we will always be there!

Bless you Michael~

I noticed from a google search that so far no credible or major news source has reported on Conrad's impending arrest story (the latest one, of course) or Papa Joe's request from an imaginary court for an allowance on Thursday. I guess the media is tired of being embarrassed (by Michael). My how the tables have turned!

If I would be *Michael L.O.V.E*, I would be very angry because of all RIPpers, who don´t use brains, all "evil imposters" who lie only to make fun of us all! Why do you face it Michael? OK, CNN is full of news, sure, but we can read the news and than leave to any other blog! I am tired to read imposters´ stupidities, aren´t you?

To everyone blogging today...please be nice...this is about Michael's children...we have to remember that at one time pictures of Paris's My Space photos were leaked...which tells me that she does have access to the Internet... I wonder if she is curious enough to google her own name...if so she is smart enough to know which sites are legit and which are not...please take into account that she could find LKL blogs...especially this one since it is about her and her siblings...Paris if you have stumbled into this blog...I know you and your brothers will do your Daddy proud...

I think the kids are accepting the award tonight and not on Sunday night – correct? Don't know if they will televise and replay it Sunday night or not. Does anyone know?


helen   January 30th, 2010 1:50 pm ET

My last comment for the day. There is no lie in the LAPD (Firpo Carr) article. Many of us read that article when it was originally posted on their website and read between the lines. Other agencies are conducting investigations which may or MAY NOT have anything to do with the "cause of death." They investigated the "death" of Michael Jackson and will have no further comment or update. It didn't happen. There is no "death." No mention of his death being a "homicide, injection by another, acute propofol intoxication" in their last article. That information came via a "fake" amended DC (presumably released by Michael and his "cast") four days later and news spread about this through "unnamed law enforcement officials" ACCORDING TO an "amended DC." If this information were true, it would have been included in the last article/update from the LAPD (Firpo Carr) which they posted four days earlier. Michael has all of his bases covered, legally and otherwise. He is a genius which no one can deny. He is the master and is the man behind the curtain. One of the latest articles out about the Grammys regarding the children taking part in the tribute is quoted as saying "according to The Man in charge, anything is possible." The Man = Michael Jackson. And with Michael Jackson – Anything is Possible.

I love you, Mike! 🙂 🙂 🙂 And YES, I will be there.

@still me

Hi,

I don't think Paris has MySpace. I'm going by what has been tweeted by Marlon and Jermaine on ALLJack5ons and Jodi Gomes. So, I'm thinking MySpace would be included. It's been awhile ago, but Jermaine tweeted that Michael's kids don't use the internet. These are the most recent tweets.

ALLJACK5ONS
there are a lot of fake Jacksons on here. marlon & I do not have twitter accts. we only tweet from here. MJ kids don't either.
12:00 AM Jan 29th from web

jodigomes
Marlon, Jermaine, Katherine, Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson do not have Twitter/Facebook. only @alljack5ons real. UNfollow frauds. Pls RT
8:40 PM Jan 28th from web

If Michael's kids don't access the internet now which is a very good thing. It certainly doesn't mean they won't use the internet when they're adults. I think all of us are grateful that Michael's kids don't use the internet. Jermaine's son Jaafar has a twitter acct. it's in their alljack5ons following list. Marlon said that the family members they're following are legit. Having said that, they just might access the internet, even though they may not have acct's. on these social networks. At least I hope they don't anyway. And if they do let's pray they're monitored.

Anyway, are you going to watch the Special Merits Award Ceremony today? Someone posted the link and we'll be able to view it on grammy(dot)com/live


Brenda   January 30th, 2010 2:59 pm ET

Hello All: A real inspirational read on this blog from everyone. Everyone has real insightful, knowledge of Michael The Man. Ecellent. His children were his greatest achievement in his life–They are his children. I'am looking forward to seeing his children accepting his Liftetime Achievment Award. Finally in there own light and not hounded by the media for a shot. So, if you have time to go utube and listen to songs befitting of his princess. In My Daughters Eyes–Martina McBride. Last Dance With My Father–Luther Vandross. Butterfly kisses–Bob Carlisle. And Last Tears In Heaven–Eric Clapton. So I hope u all enjoy. Good Day.

I'm glad that the message of love that Michael has taught us so much is coming of now generation ... I feel accomplished with all I'm seeing

Know my children were raised listening to and learning from Michael

Much, much love to you


isitscary4u   January 30th, 2010 6:42 pm ET

I think the kids acceptance tonight (if it's true) will be very emotional and moving setting the stage for tomorrow night's jaw-dropping surprise if Michael is ready to return. It'll be deepening the illusion of him being gone tonight and then BAM! tomorrow night. Brilliant!

With preparations for Sunday nights Grammys in full force, it has been confirmed that the children of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, will accept a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of their father. Prince Michael Joseph and Paris Michael Katherine will be on stage, along with their mother Debbie Rowe, when their father is honoured. The Grammys’ tribute to Michael Jackson will be broadcasted in 3D.

_________________________________

Debbie Rowe is going to be there?????? WTH! Where does this come from?

They are 3 hours diff and it supposed to start at 3 p.m. PT so 6 p.m. here

Olgeya – the English version clearly says "the following interviews and commentaries are for entertainment only." That is not standard in any form or fashion to be included in a disclaimer. That sentence is then followed by "the opinions expressed are not necessarily those of Sony, blah, blah, blah" which is standard but "the following interviews and commentaries are for entertainment only" is definitely not standard. This is entertainment at its highest level of imagination and we would expect nothing less from Michael.

sandyhouston   January 30th, 2010 7:08 pm ET

I have been torn about this since first hearing the "rumors" about Michael's children being involved in the Grammy's tribute to their father. Now it seems that the rumors are true, though I'm still not clear in what capacity they will be involved. It will be sweet and so precious to see his beautiful children pay tribute to their daddy, and rightly so. They are his heirs, his family. Who else really has a right? I know that Prince and Paris will make their father very proud. And, yes...he will be watching. The God he believes in is a loving God and will not let this moment pass and Michael not know,....in a way that we here on earth cannot understand. But Michael will.
My concern is what happens after this weekend, between the media and Michael's children. Will they leave them alone to live their lives in some kind of peace? Or will the frenzy start? Time will tell. I can only pray for their peace.

They didn't even show the video clips of Michael. The two webcast hosts where shown talking instead of showing the video montage of Michael.


Candy°°   January 30th, 2010 8:56 pm ET

Ohhhh nooooo .... was Dileo accepting the award!
Who said that stuff with kids and all?

And that Grammy live cast is completely spoiled by those 2 stupid guys showing their faces from a so-called backstage (there is not even a backstage, just them bubbling some stuff and not letting us see the live broadcast)!

Fiasco!

Sorry Mike, you have deserved so much more than that!

Let's hope they'll do better tomorrow with that tribute ...

MJJNews Michael Jackson's ex-manager Frank Dileo just accepted the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for Michael.
Michael's children will most likely appear at the Grammys tomorrow.

dnj4mj   January 30th, 2010 9:00 pm ET

Haha, you all got punked!!!
Had to sit through the mafioso Dileo instead, haha... now fingers crossed again that Katherine stays strong for tomorrow night and keeps those babies out of the line of the prying fans and media!!


Candy°°   January 30th, 2010 9:00 pm ET

yep, having F.Dileo to accept the award was a huge prank in itself ....


isitscary4u   January 30th, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Any doubts NOW about who is pulling the strings and is the MASTERMIND behind every article written since June 25th? Nothing from Frank except comments about Michael's SENSE OF HUMOR and thank you for loving him the way I do! He is The Man behind the curtain and in TOTAL control!


Diane in Minneapolis   January 30th, 2010 9:06 pm ET

Maybe MJ3 got a bit of stage fright at the last minute. It looked like Dileo was ill-prepared. Agree with Lori – kind of anticlimactic. Oh well, he still got the award. I think they had to cut away to those two hosts (kind of lame) so that the videos don't end up on youtube or, maybe for copyright reasons. Yikes it was a bad broadcast during the cutaways though – especially since they gave an award to Thomas Edison. Where is it reported that Debbie Rowe will be at the Grammys? Lots of news happening.


gigi   January 30th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

I have to say I was definitely not expecting Frank Dileo. The thought of one of the brothers accepting came to mind if the kids weren't going to be the one's to accept. But, when he called called Frank Dileo, I honestly did burst out whaaaat! O_o and :O)

Goodness.

Well, I maybe the kids will at least have the opportunity to view their dad's tribute on TV tomorrow.


babycarie   January 30th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

"One hopes that these children will have the opportunity to grow and mature at their pace and will be able to do these types of appearances if they so choose and if they enjoy it. One of the things that Jackson had to deal with in his life was a childhood that was not the easiest. The demands of a show biz life and the needs of his family had to at least on some level wear on a young Michael Jackson. While neither Prince Michael Jackson Jr. or Paris Jackson are involved direclty in show business, they will surely have to deal with quite a bit in life. From the death of their father at a young age, to the worldwide notieriety that they will automatically have, to the levels of expectations of their own talent that may or may not be fair, the kids hopefully will be allowed to grow up in a loving, supporting and, to the extent possible, without needless pressure."

RIP Mikey

All day i looked foreward to seeing Michaels' children accept this award but also reading the blogs i felt a great concern for them. If any of the Jacksons saw some of the awful comments some people were making about them i am sure this is why they didn't attend.

"he had a sense of humor like none of you really know .."
OK, I taped that, makes me lough when listening to it now 🙂
"Are you watching the Grammys? Do you believe what that person just said?" .."He'd laugh like hell and you know, just hang up!"

oookkkaaaay Michael ...

PS: I still think the broadcast was a fiasco, ""thanks" to those 2 guys pushing their faces in there all the time, instead of leting us watch the videos; they've sort of spoiled out everything – not only Michael's part, the other artists were treated the same


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   January 30th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

This is messed up.

Frank DiLeo is not family. He should not have been the one to accept that award. He did not know Michael his entire lifetime. However, Michael's family did.

No member of the family controls the money.

No member of the family controls his legacy.

And people still want to say there was no conspiracy surrounding Michael's death.

I beg to differ.

Hi Allure!
Agreed...they need to be protected from the harsh world Mike had to grow up in. They should be left alone to be kids. Mike would want them to play and swim and run and get dirty and eat candy and just be kids!!!

I honestly don't know what's true in these articles. Maybe the kids and Mrs. Katherine was presented with the option of writing their own letters that another family member could read on their behalf. I thought maybe since the award was actually given today. The low-key Special Merit ceremony, would have given them the opportunity if they wanted to, to accept on the behalf of the dad. Without all of the on lookers or the televised public eye if you will.

I think everyone can agree that they certainly don't have to say anything whether be in person, letter, via satellite, etc if they don't want to.

Ok, so I'm watching an episode of "Law & Order." In the episode, this lady in a mini-van drives the wrong way and crashes head-on with another vehicle.

When the tox screen was performed, it was discovered that a nasal spray she used was spiked with - guess what - Propofol.

Now they're tracing the origin of the spray through various pharmacies.

Sound familiar?

Good to see you


isitscary4u   January 30th, 2010 11:20 pm ET

Instead of listening to all the bullcrap that everyone wants to write about the family and what Michael would want and would not want for his children, why not listen to Michael in his own words, straight from the horses mouth. 2005 Question: Who are your real friends? "My brothers and my sisters." What's next? "Film, taking it a new medium, a lot of surprises, not a music video, but a film." About the children: "I'm getting ready to take them on stage with me and let the whole see them. They want to get on stage and I'm ready to take them." In June 2009, he unveiled them and allowed them to be photographed in preparation for the greatest show on earth. Straight from the horses mouth: Youtube Michael Jackson/Geraldo interview parts 1-5. The Jacksons are a family and they are getting JUSTICE for Michael. They are giving the media a taste of their own medicine. It's terrible the way people talk about Michael's family on this blog. Michael said in 2005, he was going to take his children on stage with him. Maybe that will be tomorrow night, maybe not, but maybe.

@Rebeka
Aww TII marathon and now they're at grandma's. I"m always glad to hear that you are all well. My friend, I'm very happy because I've been watching TII & I have snow to play in. Maybe their won't be college classes Monday. That would be good since I am just taking the required courses right now. I wanna dance & sing now but I will in my own time. When I'm not doing required courses. booo~ lol

Happy that everything is well with you

"From sources"...i can't believe we're still buying their crap...when i first read the article about MJ3 attending or might be the one to receive the Lifetime achievement award i was like OMG! It cannot be!..then i realized the source is from source so i was crossing my fingers and toes that it would never happen..
I was really hoping that the children wont appear on that show, though there's no one more suitable or appropriate to accept that award except those 3 kids ( they are the greatest, true Lifetime Achievement Award of MJ, not the trophies nor any certificates, but his children) i believe it would just open gates for those scum, hungry opportunists and we know what they are capable of doing.. we know how MJ was so protective of his children, he faced every mocks and criticisms only to put the kids away from the media eyes so why breaking that rule. I'm glad it didn't happen...i am just glad.......to Mrs. K Jackson we know it's hard but keep the strength we are behind you all the way..


Marguerite   January 30th, 2010 11:52 pm ET

Yet again people fall for what for what the media prints/says. Michael IS Alive.


Letta (I beLIEve)   January 30th, 2010 11:53 pm ET

Hello Bloggers

It is sooooooooo nice to see that everyone is getting alone with each others for a change. It is so nice and calm.

@doubtingthomas
Thank you so much for what you have done. Everyone, is taking you advice and not paying attention to childishness. I've have not posted lately, just reading and I must say it took a lot for me to not join in on what was being posted. That is hard at times but I did it,

I was so happy to read that the kid, were going to accept the award, up until I read some post here. Dileo, is not a family member and should not had been allow to accept this award. Guess, some people has a better pull at getting what they want ah?

Well, I pray that "WE" all will continue to be nice and calm here for the rest of the weekend. Be Bless .

Maura   January 30th, 2010 11:57 pm ET

Hi letta! Hi Marguerite!


isitscary4u   January 30th, 2010 11:57 pm ET

We all know that the clip above is not how things are going to play out tomorrow. They would never give it away by releasing it in its entirety the night before. Michael's magic is all about timing and the element of surprise. It is a "teaser" from Michael just like the stories he and his "cast" put out "as the sources" about the kids accepting the award tonight in the special merit ceremony. He's a genius. Nothing is at it seems and things will be different tomorrow night. Michael may or may not appear, but there is more to it than that.


Maura   January 30th, 2010 11:58 pm ET

doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 12:28 am ET

Thank you Maura-I think MJ's kids attending was brought up in the press for guaranteed ratings for tomorrow's show. I'm pretty sure they aren't the only Jacksons that will be there.


doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 12:32 am ET

@letta-with everyone being respectful, it is very easy to see who causes what and how easy it is to ignore them. They tried, but no one is falling for it.


Maura   January 31st, 2010 12:32 am ET

@di
Hello di. And thankyou. I love quotes and poetry.

@doubtingthomas2010
Yes, that is a possibility. I'd love to see those cuties though.

Although the moderator deleted my link to the Grammy rehearsal footage, it was still touching to watch.

Celine Dion says she's feeling sad, angry about Michael Jackson's death
Nick Patch, THE CANADIAN PRESS
January 30, 2010

LOS ANGELES – Celine Dion says she's still sad and angry about the death of Michael Jackson.

The diva is set to take the stage along with Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Smokey Robinson for a 3-D tribute to Jackson at the 52nd Grammy Awards on Sunday.

It will be the first look at the environmentally conscious mini-movie Jackson created for his "This Is It" tour before his death last June.

After rehearsals on Saturday, Dion was asked how it felt to sing "Earth Song" while images of the King of Pop scrolled by on massive screens overhead.

"Very emotional," said Dion, clad in a grey embroidered T-shirt and jeans, with a white leather jacket and thigh-high grey suede boots.

"Very honoured and emotional at the same time. It's kind of an awkward feeling. Sadness, and mad at the same time that he was top shape.

"You see a lot through the newspapers and it's unfortunate sometimes that people have this (distorted) image, but Michael was on top of his gig and on top of his talent, and seeing the movie and seeing him, how top-shape he was, it's very difficult to accept."

Special glasses are available only in the United States at Target stores, so Canadian viewers might not get the full effect of the visuals, which feature a small girl dancing through a lush jungle and falling asleep to images of polar bears, elephants and zebras charging around onscreen.

The song, however, will still pack a punch. As Dion swayed and danced onstage alongside the others, the group harmonized with pre-recorded vocals from Jackson.

For Dion, Jackson was an "amazing source of inspiration." So much so, that she said he was part of the reason she decided to learn English.

"I wanted the same life – show business," she explained.

"I wanted to sing onstage like him. ... I wanted to be onstage someday with Michael Jackson, especially (to) sing onstage with him maybe one day."

Dion said she didn't want to meet the King of Pop and be unable to tell him how honoured she was because of a language barrier.

"It was because of him in a way that I went to school to learn English," she said.

The Grammy performance is difficult for her, the singer added.

"It is, because I'm not only a fan, but I knew him personally a little bit, I met with him, and it's difficult to know that he was doing perfectly well and that he's no longer with us," she said.

"It's just heartbreaking."

So she took one more opportunity to explain what made Jackson such a special performer.

"Michael was not only a great musician, he was a great dancer, he was a great visionary, he had every instrument inside of his body, he knew exactly what he wanted to hear, what he wanted to do, he was feeling everything," she said.

"I hear 'HOO,"' she says, imitating Jackson's signature high-pitched flourish. "I hear this, it's not even a song, but for me it means everything. ...

"He was very, very special. I'm a big fan of Michael Jackson, period. That's all I can say."

doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 12:38 am ET

@Maura-it won't be too long of a wait.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   January 31st, 2010 12:40 am ET

I'd love to see Michael's children accept the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of their father. Very fitting and what a proud moment it will be for them. God bless them all.

(Please stop the speculating on whether they are really his children or not – they are his children and leave it at that). Leave the Jackson Family alone too.

In regards to a comment made about this being an award for the fruits of his labor in which he ultimately sacrificed his soul for.............yes, I remember in an interview that Michael gave, where he said ........."Yes, I am married, I'm married to my work".


doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 12:43 am ET

@Jessie-I agree, IMO Blanket looks just like him.

Maura   January 31st, 2010 12:59 am ET

lol I don't know who wouldn't want to marry such a beautiful soul. Goodnight and sweet dreams dear.


doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 12:59 am ET

Take care, di.


Sada   January 31st, 2010 1:02 am ET

I am thrilled that Michael is being honored at the Grammys tomorrow and now I am ecstatic that Prince and Paris will be accepting the award on behalf of their dad. 🙂

It's fitting that the kids should accept and not another episode of jermaine or any other jackson accepting just so they can parade themselves and their kids around.

Go Prince, Paris, and Blanket!!!!! ❤


doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 1:03 am ET

@Maura-and every woman who has been with him still talks about him like that.


Maura   January 31st, 2010 1:04 am ET

@doubtingthomas2010
That's right. They were lucky to be with him.


doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 1:05 am ET

doubtingthomas2010   January 31st, 2010 2:05 am ET

@Maura- I was going to send you a special emoticon of Mj, but instead I just found sites that were filled with the most disrespectful comments you can imagine. I mean some of these comments are what people use as away messages. I didn't bother to look anymore. I hope we can all keep peace here because there is still that other view out there.


patucha   January 31st, 2010 2:08 am ET

Here I doesn't snow. Only in the south or middle of my country
But only in winter

Brenda   January 31st, 2010 2:16 am ET

Hello All–Beautiful–I for one thought them having the Grammy Special Merit Award on the internet was great. Another ground breaker. Because it was the first time any of us (KIND OF got invited to watch)
To me it was a great show. Allot of talented and pionering Entertainters. Yes, a little surprised about FD accepting the award. But it still is intriging to get us to watch the show tommorrow. I went away with the feeling that the same person wrote all the speeches. The Jackson family are a very talented family in there on right. Peace.


Maura   January 31st, 2010 2:17 am ET

You're welcome Maura. His hair is thick and gorgeous here. They are a good looking family.

Going to get some rest. To all concerned, let's continue with the peace. Please ignore the "storm" when it blows this way. We don't have to "fight" to get respect. That's the act of a bully. Be clear, I didn't mention any names and if you aren't guilty of these acts, one wouldn't feel offended. Take care to all.

Ciao.

Before I go, yes manda I love the clip as well. It reminds me of their variety show I used to watch back in the day. Only a toddler then, and it was in reruns but I loved it. I posted another one on a previous blog, they were performing, "Dancing Machine." I'm glad you enjoyed it.

How in the world did you all get the peace to begin? I am glad...for Michael's sake....he wouldn't want fans fighting

maura- No we (hubby and I ) out of WV.lol Michael IS Alive.


*Michael...L.O.V.E.*   January 31st, 2010 3:14 am ET

Hello everyone. Are you enjoying the show? Frank added a nice touch this evening. Security at the Staples Center is like Fort Knox. No one can get anything through the metal detectors. Whoever filmed the rehearsal and uploaded it to youtube must have very special privileges. Earth Song has been controversial when performed on past awards shows. Will that be the case tomorrow night? Something to think about while the stage is being set.

It's all for love...L.O.V.E.

What Firpo Carr writes does not represent the point of view of the LAPD. This mythical aura about Carr-the-police-insider is undeserved. Firpo Carr is neither a "close friend" of MJ (in 2004 he was forbidden to speak on MJ's behalf or talking publicly about him), nor a policeman (he worked years ago in the technical department, as a systems analyst; he completed their detective basic training school, as a civilian employee). As for his articles, I appreciate that he writes "positive things" about MJ, but I don't see how all his gossip about MJ's "girlfriends" was necessary.

isitscary4u – January 30th, 2010 8:54 pm ET
Sorry, but if this is the "sense of humor" that you praise, then you have a taste for bad jokes. At least other people believe that MJ faked his death for more serious reasons.

Susan62509 – January 30th, 2010 7:22 am ET
Thank you a lot for this. Boy, your posts are always a ray of light on here!

Now about the children at the Grammys:

Los Angeles, California (CNN), Jan 31 - Michael Jackson's two eldest children will appear on stage Sunday night during the Grammy show tribute to their father, Jackson's father and others confirmed.

It would be the first public appearance for Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, since their dramatic appearance at the memorial service 12 days after their father's death last summer.

The children were to appear at a much smaller Grammy event Saturday night to accept their father's Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, but Katherine Jackson - their grandmother and legal guardian - agreed to the change, a spokesman for the pop star's father said.

Instead, former Jackson manager Frank Dileo made the Saturday night appearance. He also told CNN the Jackson children would be at the Sunday night tribute.

No family members had been invited to take part in either of the Grammy tributes to Michael Jackson until last week when the Jacksons complained, a family source said.

"However, there has been some recent rumors that I am displeased with the idea that Michael's children are accepting the award on my son's behalf," Joe Jackson said in a statement to CNN. "On the contrary, I am very proud of my grandchildren. Katherine and I are the ones who initiated their participation."

The youngest of the three, 7-year-old Blanket, is not expected to attend the show, although that could change, a family source said.

Jackson's oldest son is expected to read a statement on behalf of the family during the Grammy tribute, the source said.

The children will not enter the Los Angeles Convention Center through the media-lined red carpet, the family source said. Instead, they will be escorted backstage by Katherine Jackson, the family source said.

Hi, go back to cris's message Jan 30 3.23amET above – that Twitter will help you to see MJ was tweeting after the time he "supposedly" had died. That Shannon guy is MJ's choreographer for This is It. Its Shannon's twitter.


butterfly   January 31st, 2010 8:06 am ET

Stu, its a pretty big hint dont you think?? 🙂


Shelli Misoyianis   January 31st, 2010 8:18 am ET

Firpo Carr spoke on behalf of the family on a news program a few weeks ago. I think it was Jane Velez-Mitchell's show, "Issues".


EnjoyMJ   January 31st, 2010 8:42 am ET

@*Michael...L.O.V.E.*

I love you more


butterfly   January 31st, 2010 8:43 am ET

@cris

Just wondering whether you have any fresh bones for us to gnaw on....rofl.....the other bones are stale and nothing left to bite on!

Peace, Love Joy to Michael wherever you are.


Maria   January 31st, 2010 8:48 am ET

Shelli: That's right, and he will probably speak again on behalf of the family. Nothing wrong with that, if the family agrees. He was in fact a spokesman for the family even in 2004, when he was asked to refrain from talking to the press about MJ.
I was saying that he is not a police insider. And nobody who is not a police employee is authorized to speak on behalf of the LAPD and to give "hints" about this case. Not even the Jacksons.
Not to mention that nowhere in his articles does Firpo Carr imply that MJ is alive.

About Shannon Holtzapffel: that wasn't a response to a fresh tweet by MJ. This was an expression of Shannon's GRIEF after the death of a man who had told him "God bless you" while he was alive.

Candy°°   January 31st, 2010 9:12 am ET

@all Did you all enjoy the 1st Grammy evening? 🙂

@*Michael...L.O.V.E.* - So nice to see you dropping a line here from time to time!

Now to the Grammy, and Frank ... "he had a sense of humor like none of you really know [...] ", oh boy, but we are slowly getting to know it! Is this a remaking of the Ghosts with a "slightly" modified scenario?

As for controversy, well, those who don't like a certain truth being exposed do always find ways to complain or denigrate, isn't it?
Was not only the Earth Song that caused controversy over the years, there were many other songs as well, you know that ... But OK, if we now consider the present context, with a (for now) failed carb trade agreement and the even bigger controversy surrounding that subject (including leaked documents, more and more people taking a stand, etc.), it's quite interesting to watch the reaction.
Personally I think it will be praised this time, if only for the reason that the main actor is "no more with us".

Do you believe in that law of synchronicity? I admit I had some problems believing that in the beginning, but a chain of events that happened lately (small and big) made me really reconsider ... so I came to the conclusion that yes, that might just be the case right now, and the process is even speeding up by the day.

And there is something more ... I don't know how many were able to pick up on that one, but yesterday in the opening speech something was mentioned about those tiny vibrating strings which were metaphorically compared with musical vibrations! The amaizing thing was not the methaphor itself, but was mentioning that stuff in the 1st place, as for those who know what that theory stands for and what is it trying to prove, everything suddenly gains a sort of a different ... "dimension".

Keep an open mind, right? Cause “An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought in it”

Love to you!

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIyUBdukE0M&w=640&h=360]

I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we'll fly
I believe in the power of you and I

This is the moment
We have dreamed of all our lives
We'll be the change we wish from others
Will stand tall for what is right

And in my heart there'll be no doubt
The arms of the world will come reaching out
And embrace me to be all I can be
No, nothing can stop me ....

------------------
Sounds familiar? 🙂
It all comes together people!

LOVE & PEACE

Cris...michel love...one and the same.

I feel benign to all this award stuff now...Mike is not here and if he were he probably would not be receiving all these accolades that were much deserved prior to his death. Nicities afetr the fact has worn itself out these past 7 months. Had he been recognized over the past ten years for the gifts he gave to the world, and not for his need to shield his children from lunacy and for his health related issues, or whatever the latest gossip was, he might have been right there last night to receive that honor himself. The world turned it's back on Mike and that broke his heart. Murray and an entourage of 'others' are respnosoble for Mike's death, IMO, but the lunacy killed him long before. For the past 7 months his death has been exploited time and time again to promote this or sell that...even in death MJ is used for profit by those who turned their backs on him...sad.

RIP Mikey
1958-2009
Peace.

Protect this child,
and heal its lungs,
let this baby breath,
for its life has begun!
Father heal with your love,
and caress with you hand,

for you do understand,
For this is one Letta's,
precious little gems,
her daughters baby,
who is loved to them!

Bless you Letta~

I just want to take this monment to say thank you. It's so wonderful to see all of you so peaceful here. This is the way it should be. I know I'm not here much anymore, but I do read every chance I get.
The one thing we all have in common is that we love Michael and that we want nothing but the best for his children. Everyone on this blog you are showing just that. Thank you so much.
I had to work yesterday, did anyone watch the link that Lora ottawa posted? Did the children recieve Michaels lifetime award on the merit program or will they accept ti tonight?
Check backl later guys. Again, thank you for keeping it peaceful and pleasant. Let's all do our best to keep it this way.

Victoria J   January 31st, 2010 10:46 am ET

The manner in which Michael Jackson's Lifetime Acheivement Award was accepted is unacceptable! I don't care what happened behind the scenes...who was invited and/or uninvited, who attended/did not attend, who has power, who is powerless, who they thought might accept the award, who did not accept the award, who profits, who loses...Wait, but I do care about who loses and that is Michael's dignity and honor at that little ceremony for a huge award with very great meaning and significance. Sometimes the choicest words are the most heartwarming concerning a mega star's life and his contribution to the music industry, and that should have happened here in this venue. What happened at that place is unacceptable for a manager or anyone for that matter, to have been there unprepared under any circumstances. If he was a friend or a manager of any worth, he would have been prepared with the grandest and sweetest of words written out to read! There is nothing wrong with reading your thoughts on the greatest entertainer to have stepped on this earth. I am very disappointed in how it appears no one gave any thought to Michael. When will this end?

@ Allure – I read too about FC's plans to write such a book. I understand his motivation (he wants to show that MJ wasn't gay and that he didn't like only white women), but I hope it won't happen... I don't think he or anybody else has enough correct information to write such a book and IMO it's tabloid stuff to write a book about MJ's love affairs.

About DiLeo accepting the award:
He obviously didn't prepare any speech, so I guess it was a last minute decision. Perhaps both Joe and Katherine were still upset because they hadn't been invited until last week and this led to her decision to bring the children on Sunday instead of Saturday. Joe had said that Prince and Paris were preparing an acceptance speech, so I guess the initial plan was to offer them the award at the Saturday ceremony. Who knows.

What is your favorite part,
of Michael I say,
Is it all of singing,
and dancing if you may!
Or could it be his laugh,
so sweet and so pure,
touching one's heart,
with joy to assure!
Is it all of his humanitarian,
work that he does,
a healing to the world,
so precious.. because!
Or could it be his love,
for the inncocent child,
bringing them laughter,
and playing as they smiled!
Is it his plead,
to save our planet, we love,
to preserve our beautiful tree's,
and the mammals in our ocean of!
For in my heart I can't pick,
just only one love of he,
for it is the total package,
of Michael that I feel and see!

Bless You Always Michael~

Hi there!! In my opinion Firpo Carr is no different then Ian Halperin...write a book to exploit Mike...MO.
Aphrodite wrote her book against public opinion at the time...others who wrote/write about Mike are looking to profit off Mike. And because Mike is not here to dispute Carr can say Mike told him anything...much like Rabbi Schmuley.
The hoopla surrounding the Grammy's if to generate curiosity/ratings IMO. Maybe the kids will be there tonight?? I guess everyone will again have to tune in...and so it continues...exploitation goes on.
Have a great day...do something fun!!!
Peace.

*******************************

Well said Carie!

I also think it was a publicity stunt to use the 'insinuation' that the MJ children were going to accept the Merit Award yesterday. The article is not genuine in my opinion....most likely posted to attract online viewers to grammy.com/live site! I did have my doubts at first....but unfortunately got on the bandwagon.....lesson learned.

Like DN said: "we were punked".


Diane in Minneapolis   January 31st, 2010 11:19 am ET

Greetings All –

Great to see peaceful blogging! I have my glasses ready for tonight. I read somewhere that Firpo Carr is a distant cousin of the J5 and that he is not an official spokesperson for them. It seemed like there was a falling out a while back – perhaps over religion (???) Anyway – it seems like he still loved Michael because he has spoken out against the naysayers. You never know the motivation for his interviews, books, and blogs about MJ though, money or justice/vindication or both. That fine line gets thinner and thinner these days.

(It is 2 degrees here with windchill below zero – that is the warmest it will be all day!)

@ALL,good day!Isnt it nice to see the peaceful conditions here?we can do it ,and Doubting Thomas has been a good influence,on us here,thank you again!I wanted to say for the record,Firpo Carrs column to me is enjiyabkke and well written with some humor.I feel when all this started,back in June,it was a breth of fresh air to see someone positive,speking up on Michaels familand ofcoures on Michael.I am sure if the Jackson family did not want Firpo to say anything ,he probably would not!But form all I have seen ,he is a bright spot ,when all the media outlets painted Mj ,as astrung out junkie,etc,Firpo always kept it light and positive.I dont know about his L.a.p.d. connections,but he himself on oneof his comment sites,tells what he was doing there with the L.A.P.D.ALL I can say is I feel he is an Allie.And I for one really enjoy his writings.Sorry for my spelling errors!!Love and Peace always .....Maria C

OMG Lora and Carie–Are you serious the children did not accept the award?
I just read Vic's post as well.. When will this ever stop? Is their anyone out there at all that actually cares about Michael? They all are taking his name and doing nothing but making $$$$$$ off of him.
And I bet not a single one of them will donate even a half a red cent to any charity. Michael would've donated it all.
How disappointing. What a dishonor to Michael. Those children should've have been the one's to accept this award.
Dileo needs to take a long walk off a short pier. He had no buisness accepting that. Good God....
Will Michael ever truely be honored for the human being he was?

Diane I know how you feel–It has been absolutely brutaly cold here. Wind chills of -25 a couple days ago. Brrrrr


Anne   January 31st, 2010 11:30 am ET

Victoria- "I do care about who loses and that is Michael's loss of dignity and honor at that little ceremony for a huge award with very great meaning and significance.
__________________________
A lifetime achievement award at the Grammy's is an enormous honor. It is huge. For no one in his family to have shown up at that ceremony to accept the award that honored his lifetime career, the career which ultimately killed him, is so upsetting to me that I cannot even think about it. It looked like no one cared about him enough to put their pride or whatever it was away long enough to think about him, about Michael Jackson the human being who so deserved this honor.

(IMO There is no way the Grammy people did not invite the Jackson family to attend that event. There is something we do not know about this that went on behind the scenes.)


babycarie   January 31st, 2010 11:37 am ET

Ah!!! Showers feel so good!
One last post this am.
Lora...Yeah...PUNKED...and the exploiting goes on!!
As for Firpo Carr...IMO if a book was going to be written it should have been written when Mike was alive...anyone who writes a book now is exploiting his death for profit...again, IMO. Regardless of how kind a person speaks of Mike, books generate profit...and unless the profits go to Mike's charities, they are being written for self serving reasons...IMO. Some who wrote them while he was alive were doing the same, but Mike was on this earth to defend himself if he chose to.
I would like to see little Paris write a book about her daddy one day...that would be one I would most definately purchase!! And Aphrodite Jone's book. But most the others are garbage...IMO.
Have a great day!!

helen   January 31st, 2010 11:39 am ET

Firpo Carr is MUCH MORE than just an insider at the LAPD. The FACTS are listed on his website on his academics page. I, like the Jacksons, am only interested in FACTS.

About Frank Dileo, it was obviously a joke and that is why Frank spoke only of Michael's sense of humor. If Michael Jackson were dead, Frank Dileo's speech would have been a disgrace. If Michael Jackson were dead, Jermaine's speech at the AMAs would have been a disgrace. If Michael Jackson were dead, Janet's behavior during her ABC interview would be a disgrace. The entire family's behavior since June 25th would be a disgrace if Michael were dead. Randy Phillips and AEG representatives would be "the worst people in the world" for how they have come on television and talked about Michael with no human regard for him, saying things like "ya know his death was a messy as his life." Kenny Ortega and Travis Payne would be considered just absolutely heartless and shameful if Michael were dead.

That is what the brothers meant when they tweeted "If you don't think our emotion (not grief) is real. I can only pray for you. See truths when they are revealed to you. Your eyes don't lie – media does." And also "we are united as a family in finding justice for our brother."

I'm not getting caught up in this today. The obvious is the obvious. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

I love you, Mike! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Let the SHOW continue! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂


babycarie   January 31st, 2010 11:44 am ET

Anne/Patty
Maybe the family is seeing the exploitation...maybe Kate is saying 'enough'!!! Maybe she is tired of Mike being used and sbused in death as he was used and abused in life!!! And doesn't want the same for the children...hmmmmm. It is a disgrace...Mike deseved that award years ago...but regardless, Dileo??? WTH!!!!!
Peace all!!!
Love you...I really do!!

We got "punked" as DN said but more so ~Michael~ was.That was just pathetic. I agree something else happened that we don't know about...
And there is something about Firpo that just does not sit well with me,
time will tell I am sure its got something to do with $$$$.

@ Shelli
@ Isitscary4u

Continue on with your educated, intelligent and insightful posts from people who obviously understand "performance art" and the brilliant genius that Michael is and are able to enjoy THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!

@ Michael Jackson

Thank you for fully understanding what your fans needed from you as Kenny Ortega explained on the DVD and thank you for choosing Kenny as your lead man/creative partner in this journey. We needed to see revenge on the media for what they did to you. THANK YOU for GIVING US JUST THAT! You joker! 🙂 🙂 🙂


Patty Anderson   January 31st, 2010 11:54 am ET

Judie-You got that right all about the $$$$$. Such a dishonor to Michael.
Here's some info for tonight. This should be a wonderful tribute with the stars that are performing it.
Children Will Speak At Grammys On Sunday

(30-1-2010) Michael Jackson's children will be represented at the Grammy Awards. A source close to the Jackson family exclusively told E! News that, as of late Friday evening, Michael Jackson's three children will not only attend the Grammys on Sunday, but will take the stage during the planned tribute to the pop icon to "read some sort of speech" about him.

Several other members of the Jackson family are already planning to be in the audience at Los Angeles' Staples Center, as well.

Céline Dion, Carrie Underwood and Usher are among the current chart-toppers who will be participating in the 3-D Michael Jackson Tribute.

Janet Jackson presided over a muscial tribute to her older brother, who died last June, at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Carrie Underwood 'Honored' To Be In Grammy Tribute

(29-1-2010) Carrie Underwood, who was just announced as the national anthem singer for next week's Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, will have a chance to warm up on a very different nationally televised stage this Sunday. She's one of five performers paying tribute to Michael Jackson at the Grammy Awards. As she gears up to rehearse with Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion and Smokey Robinson, Underwood said she just hopes that the five of them can pay a fitting tribute to the late King of Pop.

The Grammys obviously wanted to pay tribute to Michael Jackson and his music, so they wanted to do something that he was passionate about," the "American Idol" alum said. "So, they asked all of us, I guess five of us, to be a part of it. ... I've met Usher. Obviously, I've met Jennifer Hudson. I think I've met all of them actually, but I don't think I've ever sang with any of them, so I'm really very excited to be even considered in that group of names."

The tribute will include never-before-released footage from Jackson's 3-D movie "Earth Song" that was intended to be seen on his This Is It tour last summer. CBS, which airs the Grammy Awards, has teamed up with Target to provide free 3-D glasses to those who want to view the footage in 3-D at home. They will be available until January 31 at Target stores. This is the first time an awards show has broadcast a segment in 3-D.

Hopefully, [the tribute performers are] people that he respected and liked," Underwood said. "I'm just honored they asked me. Of course, we said yes before we knew the details. I'm there, and I think it will be a really cool moment on the show."

Carie – Sure, whoever writes NOW a book about MJ's love affairs is suspect (and would MJ have wanted such a book while alive? it's a rhetorical question!). Have a great day too 🙂

Anne – my thoughts exactly. If Joe says "Katherine and I are the ones who initiated their (the children's) participation", it's hard to believe that the Grammy organizers rejected this proposal and chose DiLeo against the will of Joe and Katherine. If not for other reason, Grammy organizers know that the children's presence is far more interesting for the audience than DiLeo's.


patdavis2010   January 31st, 2010 11:59 am ET

Good morning everyone! Happy Sunday!

I've been reading some post and I thought the Grammy's air tonight. It sounds like some of you have already seen it. What is this about Michael's family not attending? Is this true? The children are suppposed to accept Michael's award. Is this not going to happen? I'm confused 😦 . Could someone please clear this up for me?


Anne   January 31st, 2010 12:00 pm ET

carie – That is just it. I can see nothing exploitative about accepting a lifetime achievement award in an untelevised low key ceremony for family and friends. I do not see how giving Michael Jackson that award could be construed as using him.

babycarie   January 31st, 2010 12:02 pm ET

So they will be at the Big show...and it goes on...still the public was mislead for.....ratings/$$$.
I retract my last post...Mike's life was all about making publicity and money....even for family...IMO. This whole weekend has nothing to do with Mike...it has to do with ratings/profit. Bobby Darren just receives his award, and he died in 1973. Mike died 7 months ago...not that he doesn't deserve all the awards, but ????? Ratings/money...and the beat goes on!!!
Ciao.

Michael's little babies,
tucked away in his heart,
forever and always,
the love shall never part!
An extension of him,
so pure and so sweet,
a deliverance by angles,
to he they greet!
A protection he gives,
that shall forever be,
to his three children,
is a shield of love.. from he!

Bless & Protect Michael's Children~


Anne   January 31st, 2010 12:09 pm ET

If the children appear on the tv show tonight and read a speech during the Earth Song tribute, they will be paid performers and then you can say they are being exploited for ratings because it is a commercially paid tv show. But not by the Grammys because it is the family who requested they participate. I disagree that Michael Jackson was all about making money.


babycarie   January 31st, 2010 12:11 pm ET

Allure
I know what you are saying...but I see the 'leaked' story of the kids being at Sat. show was to generate ratings...$$$. And it worked. Now they will be at Sun. show...or will they? So the curiosity again will generate ratings...$$$. Mike deserved all these awards when he was alive, and deserves them now, but the entire set up to the show is very suspect...and for Dileo to accept last night??? I am sure tonight the entire family will be there...which is fitting. What bothers me is the games played to generate curiosity and ratings. Will Mike's children be there...tune in and see!!!
Oh well.
Onward!!
Peace!!!

patdavis2010   January 31st, 2010 12:21 pm ET

Hi babycarie....how are you sweetie? I hope baby,baby carie is doing fine 🙂 . What upsets me about the whole Lifetime Achievement Award is that it should have been given to Michael years ago. I think it's a shame that Michael is getting all of this praise and recognition now that he is gone. Michael EARNED this achievement in music a long time ago. Thriller alone was a lifetime achievement in music history. His earnings in tours, his record breaking sales, his elaborate music videos, and just as important his humanitary works. All lifetime achievements that should have been rewarded in Michael's lifetime! Not his death.

Susan62509   January 31st, 2010 12:34 pm ET

The children were to appear at a much smaller Grammy event Saturday night to accept their father’s Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, but Katherine Jackson — their grandmother and legal guardian — agreed to the change, a spokesman for the pop star’s father said.
************************
The above came from an article on CNN's homepage today. IMO, once the Grammy's discovered the public opinion to see the children, they did some last minute switch to have the children on stage Sunday instead of Saturday. This will bring their viewer count higher.

Regarding Saturday, if it were my family member, I would have been there leaning against the wall if I had to in order to applaud my sibling, uncle, son.

Firpo Carr's education primarily consisted of computer information systems and secondarily theology. Why is 95% of his website about himself? After reading his site, he reminds me alot of Jermaine.

And I agree...I would have sat on the FLOOR to be there last night...and I would have have clapped loudest!!!! Last night in my opinion is more important than tonights hooplah....and Mike would have been so proud to be is such esteemed company as the fellow recipients...oh well.
And I HAVE to go!!

Helen – thanks. Some people refuse to see the truth no matter how obvious it is.

Susan – His website is probably 95% about himself because it's his website & that's why people create websites – to promote themselves. His next article will be Jacking Michael Jackson – Echoes of Conspiracy. When Michael comes back, the conspiracies against him will be the talk of the town and everyone who once abandoned Michael will be speaking out about how you don't Jack with Michael Jackson. He is the master and he will come out on top! We are discovering the man we never knew.


patdavis2010   January 31st, 2010 12:48 pm ET

babycarie....my kids are great! In fact from 2-4:30 I'll be at my local mall with my daughter selling Girl Scout Cookies! I'll tell ya, it ain't easy being a mom!lol!

Yeah, it really bothers me that Michael can't appreciate all of the acknowledgement he's recieved for his music.

Allure....Hi Allure, how are you today? I just watched the video you posted and I know you weren't happy about Michael's kids accepting the award anyway, so they didn't after all? I'm still so confused. Is this clip what we are going to see tonight? Frank Dileo accepting Michael's award? That sure wasn't much of a speech he gave! I've seen him speak more highly of Michael in interviews! If the kids aren't appearing was this all a publicity stunt for ratings? Everyone will be watching tonight expecting to see Prince and Paris. What is really going on here 😦 .


babycarie   January 31st, 2010 12:48 pm ET

Although I can't blame the kids for wanting to go to the big night of the Grammy's if that is what they want...I cannot imagine what that is like, and to be young and go, how cool! Rhianna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Greenday, etc. That will be so cool for them...so if they do go I hope they have fun!!
Peace!!

isitscay4u:

Most of the websites I have read are to promote their business/profession. Since he lectures, I was expecting him to be writing short articles of his beliefs or theories on different topics.


Diane in Minneapolis   January 31st, 2010 12:59 pm ET

IMHO – something happened at the last minute last night and Dileo had to step in. These are just kids – and they haven't grown up on stage. They could have had last minute stage fright and backed out – who knows? This is a BIG deal and a lot of exposure for them. Also – it's not just an appearance – it's about their dad so there is another layer of emotion. (I have done a lot of public speaking and I would be intimidated by that!) I think whether or not they appear has all to do with their feelings and Katherine's best judgement based on those feelings – and because they are kids – maybe it's minute to minute. Who knows – maybe the same thing will happen tonight. One has to wonder about when this change-up occurred and when it was reported, however. If the Grammy Live people knew hours earlier – they may not have announced it so they could get those hits on their web site.


patdavis2010   January 31st, 2010 1:01 pm ET

MourningMJ....Hi MMJ! How are you today? I enjoyed reading your post to the family. Very heartwarming 🙂 .


babycarie   January 31st, 2010 1:03 pm ET

Diane
Absolutely!! I would not be able to compose myself to speak about my brother and I am adult!! To speak of my dad if he were dead...even now it would be too difficult...for children it would be almost impossible IMO. Babby Darren's son choked up several times. So I agree. But everything 'Mike' is suspect anymore since the exploitation has been a regular occurence since his death IMO.
OMG!! I have to get out of here!!
LOL!!

Hi Diane....When I first heard Michael's children were going to accept his award all these thoughts came to mind..... WOW, Michael's kids are accepting his award! That's big! Are they ready for that? Who's going to be on stage with them? What are they going to say? I can't say I've done a lot of public speaking but I did take a class in Speech and it was nerve racking! It's not easy standing in front of a crowd of people with all eyes and ears on you!


Anne   January 31st, 2010 1:16 pm ET

babycarie- I agree with you that MJ death is being exploited for $.

I wonder if the family realized that MJ's fans were watching the ceremony on the internet and realized that they were not there to honor him? Any one of them could have spoken, it did not have to be the children. They could have all gone up to accept the award. Reuters said they didn't even come.

And yes, to speak about their father so soon after his death....not a good idea. I still get emotional when I talk about Michael at times or even when I listen to certain songs or watch certain video's. Like now all this talk about him, his children and the Grammy's are making me kinda sad. I just don't see how his children are going to be able to do that. To much pressure, way to soon 😦 . They're only kids. I'd love to see them but let them be.

Okay, I gotta snap out of this and get in Girl Scout mode!

For no one really knows,
what really does go on,
only the Jackson's can answer that,
...so really come on!
Please dont point one's finger,

No – it is not at all easy and the difficulty will be compounded tenfold because of the subject matter. That's why I think they are playing it by ear on this.

Just saw "They Don't Care" and "In The Closet" videos. Two of my favorites. Love him in jeans. The "Closet" video of his silhouette shows what an amazingly precise and fluid dancer he was. Love, love, love that Man.

Hello All–Interesting read from all sides. @Letta–My prayers to u for your daughter and granddaughter, hope they are doing well. @Candy I agree with u, like I said early sounded like the same person wrote the grammys presentation. @All–All the nominees were amazing in there on rights, who all struggled in the Industry with controversial songs that got banned. Just like LL Got the Pill–Well it was banned. Maybe, that is what we were to notice the parrells between them all. What ever one believes and has faith in not everthing is motivated by dollars. Peace & Love.

Black jacket glittering as it catches the light,
T-shirt a contrast of viginal white.
His hat tilted downwards, masking his face,
Can he be of this world can he be of this place.

We are sensing the rhythm, hearing the beat,
seeing his body and feeling the heat.
Mesmerising us now as if in a trance,
We are slaves to his rhythm, slaves to his dance.

Long live the king 🙂

Have a nice Sunday!

@TII – You are so sweeet 🙂
Yes, they do care, and we care too! And kiddies should stay away from it all – they are still too young to get involved in all this, and I am sure grandma knows and will continue to protect them well.

Looking forward for the show tonight, the rehearsals looked veeeery promising (although, the question – as M-LOVE also pointed out earlier – as of who leaked that to the tube ... remains open :-))

Keep the spirits high!

It occurs to me that perhaps Firpo Carr could be publishing something about MJ's love life because slime bag Ian Halperin is coming out with a book about MJ dressing up in drag and trolling for gay encounters. Whether he makes a buck at it or not – I tend to think that Firpo is disgusted with all of the misrepresentation of MJ.

isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 2:16 pm ET

Shelli – 😉 For those who think Frank Dileo accepting the award last night was a "last minute switch" and not planned from the beginning by Michael after misleading the press, don't be surprised if there is a "last minute switch" tonight either regarding the tribute. I don't know if Michael is coming back tonight or if it will be several more weeks, months or years but I don't think the tribute will be what we saw rehearsed.

I found the Obama trailer in TII movie to be interesting. A friend and I were watching again last night and she didn't understand the reasoning for it at all. I tried to explain my take on it, not sure if correct. Can someone share their thoughts on it.

MJ's Love Lives Forever


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 2:42 pm ET

Missin MJ – my thoughts are that it is directly related. The way the words were used His Dream made HIStory and HIS vision changed the world. Purposely placed as the trailer. My take.


missin MJ   January 31st, 2010 2:45 pm ET

Yes that is what I got from it. Also words of Believe and Change were used. It seemed strange at first to have a pre election campaign advertisement in the movie that was made long after the election, but as you watched it it became clear as to why it was used. 🙂


dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 2:49 pm ET

@carie
I agree its all about the $ since Mikes death, its disgusting and part of the reason why i WONT buy into any of it.
Last night whatever happened behind the scenes, its obvious Dileo was last minute, even so, whatever happened to SPEAKING FROM THE HEART!! Dileo as Victoria and Allure said shamed Mikes legacy!! Dileo sounds off so much about how close they were, well all i seen from how he spoke was a business arrangement, nothing LOVING AND REAL, he should have taken note from Bobby Daryns son, that was genuine!
If the children were to make an appearance then the low key ceremony yesterday would have been more appropriate, than basically a PERFORMANCE WITH MILLIONS OF EYES WATCHING... this is what tonights deal will be if they appear. They are still only children and i dont think its the place to be for them YET!!

These awards feel empty to me, Michael was forgotten and blackballed, cast aside by a lot of these same now 'do gooders'! I just feel the sentiments are not genuine, using his name for ratings, all the award shows so far have USED him. Im just consoled by the fact that Mike knew he had sold out the O2 over and over and over again, Im happy knowing he KNEW that!

Firpo Carr is a sanctimonious conman, another user.... His mother was friends with Katherine Jackson, thats how the connection happened through JW.... not cousins, etc. Writing a book about Mikes lovelife tells you what type of man this is, no better than Rabbi Shmuck, Mike kept his lovelife soooo private, so Conman Carr knows nothing apart from speculation, which is all he has ever known, as he was told years ago to stop speaking about Mike, by Mike himself!!


Alma   January 31st, 2010 2:49 pm ET

Firpo Carr Mike's friend?

URGENT STATEMENT REGARDING MICHAEL JACKSON:

(Mar. 10, 2004) The following is a press release from Raymone K Bain, publicist for Michael Jackson:

We have heard that the Jackson Family spokesperson, Dr. Firpo Carr, will be holding a press conference today on behalf of the Jackson family regarding a book written about Michael Jackson.

Should this press conference take place, it is being conducted without Michael Jackson’s prior knowledge or approval.

Mr. Jackson sent a letter to Dr Carr dated February 12, 2004, which states in part, “I am respectfully requesting that you please refrain from discussing me, or participating in any discussions regarding me in the media. It does not matter to me whether it is on behalf of my family, if the subject matter is Michael Jackson, you should refrain from making any statements. He continues, “My family has the right to select anyone they so choose to speak on their behalf, and I am sure that they feel you are an effective and loyal spokesperson, who has articulated very clearly their feelings and concerns. However, these interviews are being conducted without my prior approval, and I want them to stop.”

isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 2:58 pm ET

And the family and Michael called upon Dr. Carr once again just four months later starting in July 2004 and turned to him as their PR man and Michael's PR man during the trial in 2005. Update your research!

Judie   January 31st, 2010 3:07 pm ET

Hi DN glad to see you here and there, I agree about Firpo and now the above post from Alma proves it. No one should discuss his love life but him.

@Alma thanks for the article.


Beverly - Chicago   January 31st, 2010 3:11 pm ET

As far as Firpo Carr's book, Is there some controversy as to whether or not Michael is gay? No one needs to write a book to convince me. I think that Michael is a highly sensitive individual with very deep feelings and he values his privacy, but he never once gave me the impression that he was gay.


Diane in Minneapolis   January 31st, 2010 3:11 pm ET

Judie –

Ian has a web site "Ian Undercover". You can go there and leave comments. (I wish Diane Dimond would do a story on him!) Whuut ??

Celine Dion says she's feeling sad, angry about Michael Jackson's death

January 30, 2010
Nick Patch, THE CANADIAN PRESS
The Canadian Press, 2010
LOS ANGELES – Celine Dion says she's still sad and angry about the death of Michael Jackson.

The diva is set to take the stage along with Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Smokey Robinson for a 3-D tribute to Jackson at the 52nd Grammy Awards on Sunday.

It will be the first look at the environmentally conscious "Earth Day" mini-movie Jackson created for his "This Is It" tour before his death last June.

After rehearsals on Saturday, Dion was asked how it felt to sing "Earth Day" while images of the King of Pop scrolled by on massive screens overhead.

"Very emotional," said Dion, clad in a grey embroidered T-shirt and jeans, with a white leather jacket and thigh-high grey suede boots.

"Very honoured and emotional at the same time. It's kind of an awkward feeling. Sadness, and mad at the same time that he was top shape.

"You see a lot through the newspapers and it's unfortunate sometimes that people have this (distorted) image, but Michael was on top of his gig and on top of his talent, and seeing the movie and seeing him, how top-shape he was, it's very difficult to accept."

Special glasses are available only in the United States at Target stores, so Canadian viewers might not get the full effect of the visuals, which feature a small girl dancing through a lush jungle and falling asleep to images of polar bears, elephants and zebras charging around onscreen.

The song, however, will still pack a punch. As Dion swayed and danced onstage alongside the others, the group harmonized with pre-recorded vocals from Jackson.

For Dion, Jackson was an "amazing source of inspiration." So much so, that she said he was part of the reason she decided to learn English.

"I wanted the same life – show business," she explained.

"I wanted to sing onstage like him. ... I wanted to be onstage someday with Michael Jackson, especially (to) sing onstage with him maybe one day."

Dion said she didn't want to meet the King of Pop and be unable to tell him how honoured she was because of a language barrier.

"It was because of him in a way that I went to school to learn English," she said.

The Grammy performance is difficult for her, the singer added.

"It is, because I'm not only a fan, but I knew him personally a little bit, I met with him, and it's difficult to know that he was doing perfectly well and that he's no longer with us," she said.

"It's just heartbreaking."

So she took one more opportunity to explain what made Jackson such a special performer.

"Michael was not only a great musician, he was a great dancer, he was a great visionary, he had every instrument inside of his body, he knew exactly what he wanted to hear, what he wanted to do, he was feeling everything," she said.

"I hear 'HOO,"' she says, imitating Jackson's signature high-pitched flourish. "I hear this, it's not even a song, but for me it means everything. ...

"He was very, very special. I'm a big fan of Michael Jackson, period. That's all I can say."


Candy°°   January 31st, 2010 3:14 pm ET

@missin MJ – I guess I have no option but wait 4 it 😦
But if it's true (and I believe it is, after what you are saying) than ... even more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place ...
I think the secret is: forget about the small details (clues, no clues etc), and just try to see the big picture ... 🙂

But I still have to see that trailer 1st, 'cause I am not sure about some things ...


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 3:16 pm ET

There is a difference between PR and spokesperson. Celine is sad and angry that Michael is not with us as we all are. Angry at the media and sad. She adores Michael just like we all do.


Judie   January 31st, 2010 3:16 pm ET

@Diane,
Whuut? Ian undercover? I think he needs to go under ground and stay his ass there.Whuut a freak.If I left him a comment they would be knocking on my door with handcuffs... such a loser.


dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 3:18 pm ET

Wow, yes of course MICHAEL JACKSON WAS MURDERED ON 25TH JUNE 2009!!
THATS SCREAMING!!!!!!!! touchy touchy touchy!!!!!lol

One thing i hope for if the children appear tonight... that their statement is straightforward so no one can say it was a bunch of clues.
I hope they look straight on and not to the left or god help them if they look up, etc, etc!! Children are children not deceitful, remember that!!

Dear Michael,

My Daughter Sarah woke me up this morning at 7am to tell me of your passing. I was hoping this was some type of publicity stunt that only you or Houdini could pull off.

I remember the first day we met in the summer of 1979 when my family as on tour with your family. The Jacksons and The McCrarys. Did you know we used to be called The McCrary 5? Oh never mind, long story.

When my sister Charity introduced me to you with my brothers Alfred and Sam

at that swanky Texas house party you asked me if I was married and I told you I was separated from my wife Chaye and we were going through a divorce. That's when you folded your hands and said, "I will be praying for you." Then you introduced me to your beautiful cousin Jackie and folded your hands again and said, "I'll be praying for you."

10 minutes later you went to the other side of the room and made the praying gesture and smiled as you pointed at your cousin. I remember you doing this two more times before finally saying good night again saying I will be praying for you.

Michael right now I am praying for you. I am praying for you beautiful parents you introduced me to at The Omni Hotel in Los Angeles on your 45th private birthday party the evening your sister Janet asked me to play 'Triste' and her fiancée Mr. Dupree seemed a little upset as she held both my hands to thank me from her heart for 2 or or three full minutes for playing one of her favorite songs. It was so good to see Jackie that night and Tito and Randy too. Latoya was looking so beautiful as well. Every member of your family are so beautiful and gifted. I remember meeting up with Jermaine at Cocscos and as we shopped together we would talk all about you.

Do you remember that Christmas morning at your home in Beverley Hills when you and your children wanted to hear the children sing?

Seth Riggs called me and at your request asked me to arrange a choir of 12 children to sing at your home on Christmas morning.

I called my sister Charity and we contacted 12 of the best singing kids we knew, of course some of them being our own family members.

We had less than 48 hours to rehearse an coordinate this private production before the children got into the limousines from me and Tammy's home from Sherman Oaks to be convoyed to your Beverly Hills Estate.

Seth proudly was there that morning to vocalize all the young ones as I conducted as the children sang with charity accapella, 'Heal The World, Silent Night, Santa Clause Is Coming to Town ( Jackson style)' amongst other songs as they sang on you staircase and you and your children and family sat in that grand foyer combined with the Cathedral like acoustics I could hear additional voices of angels that morning. It was a sacred moment for us all.

As you hugged Charity and I to thank us we did a group hug with Seth and sumptuously enjoyed The Christmas Buffet you prepared for all of us. For these children it was a Christmas dream come true. If any of you children are reading this letter please share what that morning meant to you.

Your children Michael looked like cherubs.You were such a loving father.

Michael I could never understand how could the press could be so ruthless towards you. You are Michael The Angel.

I will never forget when I had the joy to work with Andre and Sandra Crouch on your Dangerous CD at Westlake Studio and we were recording the background vocals on 'Keep The Faith' and as Andre was conducting we came to an impasse for over 20 minutes until Andre turned to me and said, "Howard fix it!"

So I gave out the parts to the ascending figure of the word 'FAITH' leading to the release and you jumped up and down in the control room saying, "I Love It!"

It was that day you invited me up to the green room with my son Darius who was 12 years old at that time .He was part of a new TV sitcom called Family Matters and you told him, "I hear you have been hanging out with Bobby Brown, he is not a good influence. Here take my number and call me anytime. If you need someone to talk to or spend time with, I'll be there. The only thing is when you call don't ask for me or they won't put you through, ask for Norma Jean, it's the code name."

For the rest of that day at West Lake Studios he spent with you and was in heaven.

All the way home he held your private phone number in his hands aglow and raving about his new awesome friend.

As soon as we got home he asked if he could call you and I said yes of course.

So very excitedly Darius dialed the number and ask for Michael...click! Then he remembered the code name, called back and asked for Norma Jean...click!

Even still to this day he talks about that wonderful day he spent with you at the studio and learned the lesson of how important it is to follow instructions.

Once again and lastly when you went to trial in Santa Barbara and it seemed like the whole world turned their backs on you at another session producer Bruce Swedien pulled my sister Linda and I to the side and said,

"Howard and Linda , don't believe The Press. Michael is an angel... he would never hurt the children."

I never stopped believing in you or the pure soul that you are. I remember when you thanked my sister Charity and I for bringing 10 busloads of ministers and some of their members to support you during your trial at The Santa Barbara Courthouse. We had singers singing on behalf of you innocence and ministers interceding on your behalf for justice.

Thank you for graciously hosting all of us at Neverland not once but twice as we came to show you how much we loved you and believed in your innocence.

It is an outrage what some people will do for money. Greed, Delusion, and Anger is something you wanted to see our world healed of. Michael it's not too late. I know there are others like myself who believe in your dream that we can have a better world if we only Keep The Faith.

As I began writing this letter the sun was shining in Hong Kong and now as I close we are in a Typhoon...strange but Michael...I am not surprised you were always bigger than life and now we know that you are.

You and your music, your smile, your dance, but most of all your message will live in our hearts forever.

You not only are 'The King of Pop', you are also...'The King of Hearts'

We Love You Michael !


carebear   January 31st, 2010 3:20 pm ET

@helen

Thank you so much for your post. I loved it. Are you sure this is performance art alone, I believe that Michael might be in some type of witness protection program, but why was he hiding behind the fountain? I'm certain that Michael was behind that fountain.

Kenny loved the video "messages" to Michael from his fans. He even madea tweet about the video.: Check out his message at his twitter site. 🙂 (KennyOrtegaBlog)

Looking forward to watching Michael's tribute tonight and hope all you are too.

Have a fantastical day one and all, off to visit with my wonderful mother.

Love and ((((hugs)))) to all, 🙂

isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 3:22 pm ET

dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 3:24 pm ET

Hi Judie, Diane,
Sorry didnt see you both.
Yes Judie, what is the point of Mike keeping most personal things private, when so called acquaintances want to spill the beans.... Was all Mikes hard work in maintaining his privacy in vain?? No it wasnt because these so called acquaintances actually know only speculation!! Selling things, using Mikes name to do it and telling lies.... thats a conman to me!!
I just hope tonight stops once and for all the trash... as last night seems to be another bunch of clues.... good god its a more than a bit tawdry now, haha.


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 3:27 pm ET

In KO's latest interview he said "Michael has always had faith in his fans that they would find and see the truth." I guess that is why the movie opens up with "for the fans."

Showing recaps of past Grammy's. Especially 46th Aanual Grammy–First time A rapper ever won grammy. Outcast–The Love Below. Luther Vandergross for his song–Last Dance With My Father. Also, notice how 52nd Grammy Awards is featured. We're All Fans. Gut Feeling.

On a serious note, the will issue is strange, no mention if it was tied to the UK it just read "revocation of will" in court docket and no info on transcripts. Wish you had more info to work your legal magic with!!


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 4:50 pm ET

Lori – Not true. We are watching and listening to the Jacksons when they appear on screen on video. Your eyes don't lie. The media does. We are listening and watching Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega, the dancers, the backup singers, the band when they appear on screen on video. Their emotions on screen on video do not match the "story." Your eyes don't lie – the media does. What we see with our own eyes is how we know the truth. That's what "your eyes don't lie, the media does" means. They have all told contradicting stories about where they were when they heard? They have done this on video on screen so that we could see it and hear it with our own eyes and ears. Your eyes don't lie – the media does. Any grief they have shown (which has been almost nonexistent) has been accompanied by maybe one or two tears. It does not match the reality of losing Michael. Their emotions are almost always come when talking about the way Michael was treated by the media and the system. That is when the occasional tear comes. It is not when talking about "losing" Michael. This family would be absolutely devastated if Michael were dead. It is interesting how the Earth girl in the DVD said "I put water under my eyes to make it look like I was crying." Just random that they included that on the DVD I guess.

@Lori,
I think I know! Reliable news media is not tabloid trash,when you are broadcasting facts that just happened in the world like MJ's death,Haiti, etc., that is truth. The rest is garbage and that is the message MJ was trying to get out there,its sad when you twist the facts into your favor and turn a quote to suit your own needs.
He was talking about when a reporter gives his/her opinion on a story and writes an article or uses the media mainstream to talk about that person with his/her own opinions,not newscasters reporting facts! Big difference.


Lynn-IL   January 31st, 2010 4:53 pm ET

The honest problem with media, as the voice of someone who works in it, is that fact checking is at a minimum because of the 24/7 news cycle, increased competition with online outlets, and the citizen jouralist movement. It is really hard to break a story with that kind of competition so even reputable outlets will run with a story first and then check facts as they go and as they deem necessary. Also media is now controlled by business. As the industry has taken a downturn companies have bought more and interest in outlets. The result is that reporter's content is controlled, in some respects, by corporate CEOs. The news is colored by what they want out and is often colored by point of view not just straight facts. You really have to dig out the story yourself as a reader to get an objective point of view. It's sad but true and its rampant everywhere.


Shelli Misoyianis   January 31st, 2010 4:55 pm ET

isitscary4u,

There is so much "spin" in that article about the children that I was expecting the unexpected. lol. And Frank DiLeo's appearance was about as unexpected as you could get! It did seem like a joke to me. I'm sure tonight will be full of surprises. 😉

People can and do patch up their differences, too. We don't know the Jacksons or any of their friends/business partners personally. How can we make judgments about what's really going on in their lives every day? It seems most assumptions made are based on the media's lies. As Michael has said, "Negative sells. Good news doesn't sell."


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 5:01 pm ET

Shelli – Even I wasn't expecting Dileo. What a joke! And remember, all emotions shown in the reality series was while they were "living in the dream that Michael was dead."

I am not sure we can trust our eyes, either. Sometimes eyes do lie. This is a phenomenon backed up with medical research and research by criminoligists into eye witness accounts. There are many examples of when multiple people witness the exact same event. Their accounts do not match the facts. There have been multiple verifiable studies and many research dollars spent on this....

@Lynn–yes I do understand your comment regarding today's media issues. And I believe that is one reason why the Michael Jackson case is so..shall we say...about as clear as mud? Now I am going to hhave to look at the old post to see what I said....I don't remember being funny!

@Shelli...I was prepared for the unexpected....but I was really not prepared for Frank!

@Judie....I just know that right now I need a glass...it doesn't matter if if it half-full or half empty, I just need me some ice tea. I do recall having one of those delightful annual reviews when the COO told me that I was one of "those glass half-empty kind of people"...and I was never sure if what his meaning was...I never let my glass every get below half....

I think the best solution, and I know it is one that Michael apparently favored because I have read about it in various tabloid media and entertainment "news" sites....is to utilize a Post-It-Note and to stick it on my bathroom mirror....

I got the DVD yesterday and it does have a preview of Pres Obama, looks like a documentary of his campaign (behind the scenes). I was waiting for a release date but they never showed one..if they did, I missed it.
It's called "By the People" and looks really good. I just looked it up..google shows it was an HBO documentary that was shown, may it's now been released as a DVD, perhaps (?).

When I look at that photo I want to cry because I can imagine how devastating it would feel to lose your child. You are in such shock that you just start going through the motions of life so that you do not completely fall apart. She could have had anybody make that trip to Target but I bet she wanted to do it herself because that was the only thing she could do for her son at that moment was to get ready for his children to come live with her.


TRUE-TO -YOU   January 31st, 2010 6:26 pm ET

WHATS THE POINT OF GIVING FACTS
ALL THEY DO IS SPIT IT BACK
THEY WANT TO SEE THE BAD IN HE
THEY WANT TO SLANDER FAMILY
INSTEAD OF USING SENSE AND SIGHT
THEY JUST WANT TO CUSS AND FIGHT
WE BRING THEM PROOF
SHOW THEM THE TRUTH
BUT STILL THEY DENY
AND LIVE THE LIE
WELL IF THEY DO NOT WANT TO SEE
WHAT MORE WILL IT TAKE FROM HE
DOES HE HAVE TO STEP IN HERE
STILL WOULD WE SEE THEM CHEER
THEY WOULD STILL FIND A WAY
TO SAY THAT HE DIED THAT DAY
WELL LET ME TELL YOU THIS ONCE MORE
HE DID NOT DIE OF THAT I AM SURE
HE DID NOT EVEN LIE TO YOU
SO WHY DONT YOU JUST BE TRUE
SAY TO HIM THAT YOU CARE
TELL HIM THAT YOU WILL BE THERE
TELL HIM THAT YOU LOVE HIM SO
AND YOU ARE GLAD HE DID NOT GO
IF THIS SIMPLE THING YOU CANNOT DO
THEN I WILL SAY ITS SHAME ON YOU

I BELIEVE I WILL BE THERE

This is it!   January 31st, 2010 6:40 pm ET

Always so gracious,
for the applauds, he received,
never forgeting to bow,
and thanking all of thee!
His hand would raise,
and the peace sign was given,
a gesture to the world,
from his heart, for all of the living!
All the songs were sung,
for there was no more.
just six little words of,
I Really Do, Love You More!

Bless You Michael~


dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 6:45 pm ET

When Katherine was leaving Target after buying camping gear, it was because Mikes children had never been camping before, so Katherine bought the camping equipment and they pitched up in the grounds of the home at Hayvenhurst with their cousins, i bet they had a ball!!
Also when my husband died so suddenly the grief counsellors told me to shower a few treats onto my son, anything to alleviate his grief... but to also let him talk and vent his feelings... I was able to preoccupy my son with his treats, and it did help, a child grieves differently to an adult. I think Katherine had maybe the same idea to preoccupy the children and get them excited for something they had never done before. Even if it only preoccupies them for a few minutes, its those minutes less spent in grief!! Nothing unusual in her buying camping equipment and choosing it herself, maybe she also needed something to preoccupy her mind if only for a few minutes!

So what if Katherine had the same clothes on!!
Even though the world still carries on its way, in grief our world stops, you just go through the motions.... i dont think i changed clothes for a few days, thank god for my family because i wouldnt have thought about my son needing to eat.... So same clothes for however long is normal in grief!! If you had an inclination then you would see all these actions speak GRIEF!!


isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 6:57 pm ET

DN – It's not abnormal to wear the same suit of clothes for the length of one day. I was just pointing out it was the same clothes because some people have tried to say that wasn't Katherine at Target when indeed it was. Everyone is pretty much in agreement the last thing Katherine would be doing if her son was dead is shopping at Target the next day.


TRUE-TO -YOU   January 31st, 2010 7:07 pm ET

MANY HERE LOVE THE GRIEF
THEY WANT TO BELIEVE IN WHAT THEY SAY

THEY ARE TO IN TO THERE GOSSIP SEE
TO SEE THESE THINGS JUST CANNOT BE
IN JUSTICE THEY PLACE THERE SIGHT
BUT THERE JUSTICE IS NOT RIGHT
FOR THEY WILL NOT BELIEVE THE TRUTH
EVEN NOW THEY SEE THE PROOF
I DO NOT THINK THEY HAVE A MIND
SURELY THEY WOULD NOT STAY BLIND
THEY SAY THEY WILL RESPECT HIS NAME
AND STILL THEY DO IGNORE HIS PAIN
THEY BELIEVE IN ALL THE MEDIA HYPE
EVEN WHEN THEY SEE SUCH TRIPE
WHY DONT YOU JUST GET A CLUE
AND SEE WHAT THEY PUT HIM THRU
ITS ALL FOR LOVE HE TOLD YOU SO
THATS WHY HE STAGED THIS SHOW
SO SOME WILL JUST WALK AWAY
WHILE I BELIEVE THATS WHY I STAY

I BELIEVE I WILL BE THERE


Lynn-IL   January 31st, 2010 7:13 pm ET

Just got done watching some great MJ videos on BET, they have been all Jacksons all day, and gearing up for the Grammy's. This tribute is so long overdue, but it is great that they are recognizing the best entertainer of our lifetime.
I know I posted something lately and it was largely ignored, but I want to say it again because it's important. It is so great to hear the songs that carry Michael's message finally getting the recognition they deserve. The tributes and liscensing deals could have focused on the more commercial, though still artistically brillant, songs like Bad, and Thriller, and all of the rest to move albums. Instead though messages like They Don't Really Care About Us, Come Together, and Earth Song are getting some airplay to a brand new generation of listeners and reminding the whole world what Michael's heart and message are all about. To me that's amazing, and I'm greatful that the entire scope of Michael's career is finally being celebrated by the world!

Love and appreciation Michael for leading the way, I pray we can not only hear your message but work to make it a reality=)


Lynn-IL   January 31st, 2010 7:19 pm ET

You can change the world
(I can't do it by myself)
You can touch the sky
(Gonna take somebody's help)
You're the chosen one

If we all cry at the same time tonight
–Michael Jackson

Great song, great message; what are we going to do about it?


dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 7:23 pm ET

Katherine was in grief and had children to think about... stupidity reigns supreme here or sheer ignorance... obviously never been even close to grief especially when it involves children left behind to take care of. Dont bother commenting when you are obviously ignorant to it... I didnt go to my husbands funeral... so does that mean i wasnt in grief???? It was because my grief was so unbearable that i could never go... you know like Katherine nearly never managed to go to her sons funeral in Sept, who wants a lasting memory of your loved one in a box!!

isitscary4u   January 31st, 2010 7:29 pm ET

DN – Do you think you are the only person on this blog to have lost someone? I lost a brother three years ago. I'm sorry for your loss. The family arrived 77 minutes late for a funeral that was 70 days after "death" and filmed twice in high definition; the first time with trees and a building behind the fake backdrop and the second time without trees and the building behind the "fake" backdrop. Want to talk about obvious ignorance? The truth is right in front of your face.

Does anyone know when is the tribute scheduled?


dnj4mj   January 31st, 2010 7:42 pm ET

@isitscary
Of course i totally aware im NOT THE ONLY ONE who has lost a loved one on the blog.. again your ignorance is apparent to think such a thing. The family was 77mins late (as you calculate the minutes) because Katherine DID NOT WANT TO GO because she was consumed with grief.. and as you have grieved yourself you will know that it is much deeper after a couple of weeks, his funeral was nearly 3months later, IMAGINE HOW HARD THAT WAS FOR HER!!

@lora
Yes lora we all have lost loved ones, and yes i agree NO ONE has the right to judge another persons grief... but a person in grief is recognisable when it is written all over their face, as we all seen in Katherine Jacksons face, at the funeral she had to force herself to attend. Losing a child and one that has been in your life for 50yrs must be an nightmare of anguish in itself.
Im also sorry for your losses lora, yes time only alleviates the pain.. thats it!! your right.

@isitscary
Gosh you love to argue, ok really last post to you
I will never change my mind about certain members of the Jackson family, i will always speak my mind as anyone here will tell you. I do think at least 2 members are implicated in some way to MJs murder... yes heavy i know... but its what my opinion is. Certain members are out for money and money hungry... Thats my opinion of the Jacksons..
I have never told anyone on here the Jacksons are due an apology from them if they have slated the Jacksons, yet you have told i will have to apologise to the Jacksons in the same breath as you was saying the JACKSONS LIE ABOUT MIKE, THEY SEE EVERYONE ELSE DO IT SO DO IT THEMSELVES....
Unlike you i hold myself accountable for what i say and practise what i preach...
However much i am in discord with certain members of the Jackson family, i cannot help but see Katherine Jacksons grief ridden face.
As much as i cannot stand Joe Jackson i will also back him up 100% to expose the cover up of his sons murder... its the last thing he can do for his son, so im with Joe on this one.
As much as i think Randy Jackson knows... i am with him 100% to also expose the cover up of Mikes Murder.
Jermaine Jackson, i cannot stand and never will.

I have never claimed to be a fan of anyone but Mike...and there are no rules that to be a MJ fan I must also love the family. I despise Jermaine...he sold Mike out on numerous ocasions, and continues to do so. But I adore Kate and her grief is REAL!!! She lost her son...her son died and she shows her grief. And the children lost their daddy.
Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009, and his death deserves respect.
RIP MJ
1958-2009

DN, see new blog.


elly   January 31st, 2010 8:13 pm ET

there is something going on behind the scenes that we don't know. cause dileo accepting such an important award is just weird. I don't understand why the grammy would not invite the jacksons to the event. that's very strange. it seems like all these people are doing is taking advantage of michael's death and making money. if the kids are going to talk tonight then it's for rating cause they already handed out the award last night. it would have been better if the kids had accpeted the award. I don't get why these people can't work together to honor a man who has done so much for the music industry. to mock him like this is just outragouse. none of the award shows so far have honored michael they way they should have done. This incredible human being who has done so much dies and these people can't come together to make a deserving tribute for him. I hope in the future katherin jackson does not let the media and the music industry to take advantage of those kids. those kids should focus on being kids not performing at this age. that's what michael wanted for them. to be kids and enjoy life.

Great to see us all together again... Good grief a new blog??? Really i would have thought Larry would have grown tired of the disrespect by now.. must have something to do with that poster and Larry being pissed off by a certain Jermaine.. lol
Meet on the new blog!!

@dnnj4mj

The post was meant for all. Was not pointing fingers as you say at no one. But since that is the case I do not call my friends Hoax Friends. So, who is point negativitiy at whom? This is why fighting starts or continue on these blogs, Because, people always has negativity to throw at others. I did not call your friends that you post to anything, but yet you chose to point that out to me. That IMHO was not called for. No need to answer back, you have already made up your mind to do that or unless you would not had said it. Peace.

@DN
What has Jermaine done that you hate him so..
You say you care for Michael... Jermaine, Tito, Randy, Jackie, Marlon all Michaels Brothers...You say How Hurt Mrs. Jackson Is ..Don't you think it hurts her to see your posts that you can't stand Jermaine.
Michael Loves his Brothers.

LAH, BLAH, BLAH , to you as well. I have no need to post to your negavity of others myself. I am sure that you will clog up the blog with your long, long postings of nothing of interest to me either. I know that I will ignore you that is a promise, Not interested in people with a negativity thinking of others. So, as I said last post no need to post me back but you did instead. But this is my last post to you, so please 'MISS ME", with anything you need to say to or at me, it will be pointless. Not intersted in fighting or bad attitudes here. BYE BYE.

Hi!Anybody here?


Sada   January 31st, 2010 8:44 pm ET

I'll be happy if MJ's kids are at the Grammys tonight, especially for THIS tribute, but I don't think they will be there. Unfortunately, instead we'll see the likes of jermaine, the brothers, and possibly joe. How disappointing!!!

I would rather Prince, Paris, and Blanket carry on the legacy of their dad. JMO


gigi   January 31st, 2010 8:44 pm ET

@Candy at 8:24pm

Hi, there really is no break down schedule that I could find on the grammy site on when things will be shown.

I'm on the east coast so the grammy starts showing at 8pm here.

They might not show the tribute until closer to the mid-end of the show.


stuci   January 31st, 2010 8:46 pm ET

I hope the tribute is in the begening!


gigi   January 31st, 2010 8:47 pm ET

@stuci

I hope so too. That would be wonderful if the tribute is done at the beginning. :O)


stuci   January 31st, 2010 8:49 pm ET

Oooohhh Gigi,i will go crasy,if it will be not in the begening.My son whant me to vake him up.It will be 1 oclock here.I thoughd,i vake him up,woch the tribute,thenn he can go back to slaep.He will be so upsad,if i dont vake him up....


Beverly - Chicago   January 31st, 2010 8:51 pm ET

The full moon influence is obviously still in effect. I've been feeling it all day and trying to stay off the blog because I know too well how it affects me on the blog. Try to keep the peace everyone! It's a great night for Michael and his family. I'm looking forward to seeing the Tribute for Michael (who, by the way, is still alive). Sorry, I couldn't resisit!.

On E was a 1 hour show today about MJ.All about his death,all about his past.They didnt talk about the parts,that are strange,just what the media say all the time.About he was use prop,his father was bad,but they loved each other... DD was in it too,she mostly didnt talk bad about MJ,but she said,MJ devorsed MJ,couse they didnt have sex.That was make me very angry.

gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:10 pm ET

@stuci

Oh, I'm sorry that your son won't be able to see the tribute live. I pretty sure that the clips of the tribute will be shown again. If not MTV VH1 it will definitely be posted by someone on youtube.


stuci   January 31st, 2010 9:14 pm ET

Ohh,no tribute in the begening...


stuci   January 31st, 2010 9:15 pm ET

I hope so in HD 😀


gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:25 pm ET

I think it would be kind of nice if the Grammy's could put out a special video of the tribute like they do the Grammy's nominees albums.

I wonder if the tribute will be posted on the official MJ website.


Candy°°   January 31st, 2010 9:28 pm ET

OK, so what they broadcast on the internet from the so called Grammys is all scam ... Go find a TV channel, or you won't see anything tonight, other than some "fan videos" 😦


gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:29 pm ET

Beyonce is on now. She has the soldiers like the ones in TII. :O)

it's really bad what I hear ...


stuci   January 31st, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I hope so Gigi that they will put it on MJ webside.

Yeah,i was think about the same,just like TII soldiers...

Candy,i think,she was realy good.Live singing sound diferent,thenn studio record.


gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:44 pm ET

They always give those "coming up next" previews of the thing you really want to watch. And it seems like they're always shown 5 or 6 times, before they ever show want you've been waiting all night to see :O)


Candy°°   January 31st, 2010 9:45 pm ET

WOW! That Pink pulled out quite a performance!


stuci   January 31st, 2010 9:48 pm ET

Yes Gigi.We can wait all night.

Candy,that was emasing from Pink.


gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:50 pm ET

@Candy

Yea, I think that's Pink new style now. Doing the aerobics while singing, is a pretty interesting concept. She's certainty not afraid of heights.


gigi   January 31st, 2010 9:56 pm ET

@stuci

:O) well think everyone has got their 3D glasses in the ready position. I know I do.

I'm sure Michael's kids is finding all of this pretty interesting. Whether they're watching at home or there at the grammy's (backstage or in the audience)


gigi   January 31st, 2010 10:00 pm ET

I saw a break down it said the tribute will be shown in 59 minutes.


stuci   January 31st, 2010 10:03 pm ET

doubtingthomas2010   February 1st, 2010 1:22 am ET

Hello to all, great acceptance speech by the children. And they were supported by their family. They are strong and the represented their father well. If you notice, they didn't show any negativity while accepting the award, and it was their father who dealt with a lot of crap throughout the years. So to all the bloggers in here, we should follow that example.

And I'm happy that they acknowledged their family.


doubtingthomas2010   February 1st, 2010 1:28 am ET

@Letta-I hope you and your family or doing well. Please ignore the drama, a lot of times heavy winds blow in here and want you to get caught in it. The winds start to fizz out once you avoid it. When you don't answer back, that angers them more. The negativity wants attention, once you really don't acknowledge them they'll (try to keep starting but) eventually get the point. Leave them in their misery, they like it.

This was beautiful, the 3D didn't work so well on my TV but I still teared up, Michael had and is making such a big impact. It was so beautiful. And Michael Jackson's kids are gorgeous! Prince is so handsome, like his father and Paris is very pretty. I couldn't help but say "awww" after the tribute. His kids were amazing. They are very mature, beautiful and humble. Michael's been raising them so well. He should be honored "Father of the Millenium" (:

I L.O.V.E. YOU MICHAEL.
I WILL BE THERE!

Prince:
We are proud to be here to accept this award on behalf of our father, Michael Jackson," older brother Prince said. "First of all, we'd like to thank God for watching over us for the past seven months. And our grandmother and grandfather for their love and support. We would also like to thank the fans. Our father loved you so much because you were always there for him. Our father was always concerned about the planet and humanity. Through all his hard work and dedication, he's helped with many charities and donated to all of them. Through all his songs his message was simple: love. We will continue to spread his message and help spread the word. Thank you. We love you, Daddy."

Paris:
"Daddy was supposed to be here, Daddy was gonna perform this year," she said, keeping her composure. "He couldn't perform last year. Thank you, we love you, Daddy."

Through the nerves, they both did a brave and beautiful job of paying tribute to their daddy, Michael Jackson, who sadly passed away June 25, 2009.

RIP Michael Jackson
1958-2009
You are always in our hearts.

Lionel's words:
"The stunning anthem and remarkable film he created to accompany it was at the very heart of the groundbreaking concert Michael was preparing just before he died."

RIP Mikey
1958-2009
Respect Michael Jackson's death.
Respect his children.
Respect his legacy.
