Chris Brown's MJ Tribute Was 'Spectacular,' Jermaine Jackson Says

Posted: 05:20 PM ET

via mtv.com

Chris Brown wasn't the only one getting misty-eyed at Sunday night's BET Awards during his tribute to Michael Jackson. The King of Pop's older brother, Jermaine, told "Extra" that he was also overcome with emotion during the dance routine, in which Brown paid homage to some of MJ's most famous moves and then attempted to sing "Man in the Mirror" before being overcome with emotion and weeping onstage.

"To see [Chris'] performance, it was very emotional for me, because it was an acceptance from his fans from what has happened to him and also paying tribute to my brother," Jermaine said. "It was just a spectacular moment."

Fans and critics have been split on the performance, which some saw as the bursting of an emotional dam for the singer, making his first major public appearance since he pleaded guilty to felony assault in his assault of former girlfriend Rihanna last June. Others speculated that Brown may have manufactured the tears to gain sympathy from fans who abandoned him in the wake of the Rihanna attack.

Exploit is the name of the game...should have a t-shirt made for Jermaine!!!
Makes me want to scream!!!


babycarie   June 29th, 2010 5:25 pm ET

No...makes me want to PUKE!!!


babycarie   June 29th, 2010 5:26 pm ET

Being a fan of Michael does not mean one has to be a fan of his family...I loved Michael but was never a fan of the rest other than Janet, so for those who feel some warped sense of loyalty to the family because they are a fan of Michael, more power to you...but do not assume we all feel that sense of extended loyalty. The family was not the support system they pretend portray now, and they were not a close knit unit...and that is truth. They are a business institution and are out for their own self interests, which now seems to be making money off Michael's death.
Rest in peace Michael...you are in a much better place.
Ciao.


Judie   June 29th, 2010 5:39 pm ET

Chris showed exactly how we all feel,that came from his heart and if you can't see that then you need glasses.Very humbling to watch.


babycarie   June 29th, 2010 5:43 pm ET

And before you get all riled up and self righteous, think about how much Michael hated to be exploited and used and how much he is being used in death by those who are supposed to love him. It all began the ay after he died when Joe shamelessly pimped his new record label...all the publicity moments such as the one year anniversary visit to FL that was photographed and sold to tabloids...the interviews and 'tributes' that seem to always support some other agenda (at the Gary tribute it was announced that Randy's daughter has a CD coming out). It is pure exploitation and just disgusting.
I just wonder what life will be like for MJ3...they will have the money, so the leaches and ugly will follow, and the cousins are sticking close already. Thank God for Michael's sense in not allowing his children to have their inheritance until they turn 40. He knew...he knew that if anything were to happen to him his kids would be the ATM bullseye.
Ugh...enough.


Smith in Oregon   June 29th, 2010 5:50 pm ET

Chris Brown's record sells are plunging and dismal, even his tears for the MJ tribute were phony, Chris Brown should just beat it.


TRUE-TO -YOU   June 29th, 2010 5:51 pm ET

acceptance that is right
keep judgement out of sight
he made a mistake and paid the price
lets all move on and be nice
the only thing i care to see
is cris dance so SPECTACULARLY
and that tribute that he made
from heart and mind will never fade

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have

If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

All of us have in life make mistakes. From these we have opportunity for personal growth, to reevaluate priorities, to set things right, and to "make a change" if necessary. Forgiveness is a part of showing love to others. If we want others to forgive us when we make mistakes, surely we need to do the same for them. "The Man In The Mirror" taught us so much about L.O.V.E. He would be the first to embrace Chris Brown and not judge him.


GARRETT FROM USA   June 29th, 2010 7:15 pm ET

I ACTUALLY DID NOT SEE THAT PARTICULAR PERFORMANCE. BUT I KNOW IF I TRIED TO DO A TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL AND HIS MASTERY OF ENTERTAINMENT I WOULD HAVE BROKEN DOWN TOO. WHY I WOULD DO A TRIBUTE TO HIM WOULD NOT ONLY BE BECAUSE HE WAS A MASTER ENTERTAINER BUT ALSO BECAUSE WHILE NOT PERFECT JUST LIKE THE REST OF US HE WAS A GOOD,LOVING, GOD~FEARING HUMAN BEING THAT DESERVES TO BE REMEMBERED AS SUCH AND WILL BE. LONG LIVE MICHAELS LEGACY


vitoria   June 29th, 2010 8:55 pm ET

what is wrong with the world can anyone show emotional with out
been judged ?
Who does not love Michael and to do a performance like Chris did it takes lot o energy and courage just to try to copy Michael's legendary dancing moves ,come on have some respect and learn how to forgive and enjoy Chris amazing performance , what a lucky guy with a lot of courage to be able to carry out his amazing performance to try to imitate Michael's perfect artistic skills !
Good job Chris look forward to see you soon again ,michael would have been proud !


BTS   June 29th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

Babycarie, do you feel that Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley are also a business institution, as you have stated about the Jackson Family, since they have been making money off the death of Elvis for many years now.


trudy   June 29th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

GOOD JOB CHRIS MICHAEL WOULD OF BEEN PROUD.THE HECK WITH THOSE WHO DONT UNDERSTAND FOREGIVENESS AS M.J. DID. IM NOT A FAN OF YOURS BUT I WILL BUY YOUR MUSIC NOW I THINK YOU PAYED YOURS DUES.


BTS   June 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Though I don't condone Chris Brown's actions with Rhianna, it's amazes that people have vilified this young man and tried to destroy his career, yet you have Charlie Sheen putting a knife to his wife's throat and his career is still going strong. Contract renewed for his tv show....hmm what is wrong with this picture.


ibelieve25   June 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

@BTS
Well...wondered when you were going surface again. Love to you.


HOLLYROCK   June 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

DEAR JERMAINE,THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUBLICLY SHARING YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE TRIBUTE CHRIS GAVE.HE LOVES YOUR BROTHER SO MUCH AND I KNOW YOUR WORDS MEAN ALOT TO HIM.I BLOGGED [BET] THE OTHER NIGHT TO ASK IF THEY WOULD CONSIDER INVITING THE JACKSON BROTHERS TO PERFORM AT THEIR NEXT AWARDS SHOW.SO MANY OF US WOULD BE SO THRILLED TO SEE YOU GUYS.AND BY THE WAY I ,I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE [JACKSON FAMILIY DYNASTY] AND I HOPE THERE IS MORE TO COME.LOVE TO ALL YOUR FAMILY.WE LOVE YOU MORE.


"Pixie Dust "   June 29th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

True-To-You,well said once again.I agree with you 100 %.(Smiles) to you.


babycarie   June 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

BTS June 29th, 2010 9:29 pm ET
Yes...both are business institutions...imo.
Priscilla was not even married to Elvis at the time he died yet to this day uses the Presley name and cashes in on the fortune...Lisa is just his child who inherited from her daddy, so she is entitled to the name and fortune just like MJ3...NOT the other family who have leached off Michael since he became the lead singer of the J5. The exploitation of Michael's death has been beyond gross. And this is my opinion.
RIP Sweet Michael.
As for Cris Brown...I think the whole Rhianna thing is over and he should be allowed to move from under that cloud. However I believe he along with Jermaine milked that performance for effect...I believe it was staged and that although I do not question his admiration for Michael, Cris was acting with self preservation in mind...and again this is my opinion.


butterfly   June 29th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

@True-to-You – now that Larry King is going to hang up his suspenders in the Fall, may I suggest you put your hands up for them asap!!! 😀


ASSATA   June 29th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

LEAVE CHRIS BROWN ALONE , SOCIETY HAS CREATED THE UNFORGIVABLE CRIMES AGAINST A RACE A RACE OF PEOPLE AND CONTINUE TO DO YET YOU PEOPLE FORGIVE LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE YOU HYPOCRITES....


"Pixie Dust "   June 29th, 2010 10:26 pm ET

butterfly,your comment at 10:03 pm,very cute.(Smiles) to you.


LoveConquersAll   June 29th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

For me, it was an inner healing for Chris when he took the stage in spite of his past mistakes... A "redemption" of his heart and soul.

Please understand that, I never condoned what happened, but we are all entitled to a second chance. Hopefully we learn something in the process so that the same mistake is not made again.

With that being said, we are only human, and even though it is part of our nature to judge at times, we have to stop and remember (as hard as it is) to FORGIVE. Michael was a true example of this and he would be proud.

As far as his performance, he did a fabulous job but I have to admit Michael is a tough act to follow. No one will ever "hold a candle" to him...It just makes me miss him even more. (No offense to Chris)

L.O.V.E You Michael!

Wishing everyone a great day/evening...Love to all !!!!


ibelieve25   June 29th, 2010 10:37 pm ET

Very well said.

Yes. Chris was wonderful. Michael would be very proud if he were alive...


Migdalia Narvaez   June 29th, 2010 10:44 pm ET

When Chris Brown started dancing and singing, I just wanted to cry. The longer he was performing, the tighter my chest got. I loved his tribute to Michael Jackson. I loved Michael and I always will. When Chris couldnt sing the last song, cause he couldnt stop crying, I was crying with him also. Anything that have to do with Michael, I cry cause I cant believe he is no longer with us, and the way he was taken from us...... God bless Chris Brown for such a good performance. God be with Michael's Family always and for ever. And God bless his soul. He will always be missed and loved. Miss you and Love you Michael J.


christine canada   June 29th, 2010 10:50 pm ET

I'm not a big fan of Jermaine's. I'll try not to be too judgmental but he does strike me as an opportunist.
Did anyone see Mrs. Katherine J's interview? She mentioned that MJ's kids, for a long time, did not know a lot of Michael's music or the depth of his celebrity. That speaks volumes on Michael's modesty and his overall character. Most notably, he wanted his kids' love and respect as a dad, not a celebrity. Also he wanted to raise respectful, modest, polite kids who did not have a sense of entitlement. He succeeded beautifully. IMO.
I was also happy when Katherine spoke of Debbie Rowe. It seems like they are on the same page regarding the kids – which must be why it's not in the news (good news is ignored). Katherine spoke very highly of Debbie and it definitely looked like she truly feels this in her heart.


James   June 29th, 2010 10:50 pm ET

I think Jermaine summed it up well, spectacular is the only word. As someone who knew nothing about Chris' talents, I was blown away. Even Michael would have been impressed.


butterfly   June 29th, 2010 11:07 pm ET

@cris – hmmm so are we to take it that you know what Michael would feel now??? 🙄
Pls don't crack up now as we need you to keep us strong...

Susan
One more ?....how do you think Jermaine and other family members stating that Murray did not act alone will effect the case for the DA?? Will this help the defense or will this not matter because ultimately Murray was the one who administered and he is accountable regardless of who else might have initiated the event?? Could the defense use this for reasonable doubt saying maybe someone else entered the room during the '2 minutes' Murray left to 'go to the rest room'?? I know they will try and state Michael administered to himself but with the IV in his leg that would have been pretty impossible, and given the fact that propofol is so fast acting...ugh...I really fear Murray will just walk away...that would be beyond tragic.
RIP Michael.

Sorry...I throw all my ?'s at you!!
What's up with Rob Lowe and Tom Barrack?? And why not make this arrangement with Michael when he was alive since Michael had expressed interest in film, and they are co-owners of Neverland and Michael's partnership would have been a win win...and this would have saved Michael from that tour and he would still be here...?? Michael clearly is a much more visionary artist that Lowe...???????????

he will probably be so happy to get a bit of bliss
maybe we can stop him keep him on the show

It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.

Have patience with all things, but especially with yourself.

The whole process of mental, spiritual, and material riches
may be summed up in one word – gratitude.


jamila   June 30th, 2010 2:50 am ET

I agree with Jermaine Jackson that Chris Brown's tribute to MJ was spectacular.Bet knew they had messed up last year with that sorry tribute they put on in place of Chris Brown's tribute. They allowed J-z to manipulate the awards show by having Chris Brown removed and what a horrible show that was, but they redeemed themselves this year by having Chris Brown perform.


jamila   June 30th, 2010 3:02 am ET

All these haters out here hating on Chris Brown are the same ones who were hating on MJ when he was alive. People like that are so full of self hate that it's easy for them to hate others. They need to get themselves right!!!!!!

Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends whom we choose.

Happiness is like a cat, If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you; it will never come. But if you pay not attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap.

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will .

It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do.

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do no pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for power equal to your tasks


Ashley   June 30th, 2010 3:09 am ET

it was so awesome, i think people should just leave Chris Brown Alone,I dont no why people is saying that he was faking it,i Dont no why some of u people are Hating on the guy ,He made a mistake everyone makes Mistakes, Rihanna Had Move on,And so did Chris Brown , i THink he Did Wonderful at the Bet Awards. Michael would Be Every Proud.

Susan62509   June 30th, 2010 3:51 am ET

Babycarie:
I agree with each of your comments posted at 5:26 p.m. and 5:43 p.m., especially being a fan of Michael does not mean one has to be a fan of his family. You are absolutely correct and I'm so proud that you admit it. Many others might feel the same way but are afraid to admit it. That is the difference between leaders and followers. The
Segye Times (Moonies) is a perfect example of how MJ was used by family members. You don't keep assets given to you that you haven't earned and ethically should be returned.

The 02 tour that Michael was to perform, was initiated by Thomas Barrack. They met multiple times in Las Vegas to have discussions and Barrack told MJ that film and a Vegas show would be the next steps after he completed the 02 tour. There were big future plans in the making. Barrack's business had suffered due to the recession and Barrack needed to recoup some of his losses. He new MJ would be the person who could do that for him. Barrack's business is to purchase failing companies and he made millions. The entertainment field is a different area that is not his expertise. Barrack
introduced MJ to Randy Phillips and Randy introduced MJ to Kenny Ortega. MJ would also meet with Steve Wynn who built many resort hotels in Vegas. This is also the time frame that MJ talked with Celine Dion to get her opinions regarding a Vegas show. MJ knew he needed money to get out of debt & Tohme was working for MJ at the time. It was Tohme who brought Barrack and MJ together. MJ's plans to do film, show, videos and books, etc. were also presented to him by Branca a few weeks prior to his death.

With Rob Lowe, Barrack, a restaurant owner and I don't know anything about the 4th member, it appears they are all going outside their professional trades. My guess is they will pool their monies, be the financial backbone to this new company but will have to hire all the pro's to make it work. Why or how Rob Lowe got in with this group is interesting to say the least. lol

@Virtual Friend 1
Hello Virtual Friend, hope that your days and nights are going alright. Well, I was surprise to see that you have not posted back to me and let me as of this day. You are probably busy at work and letting the times pass by. How did you like the Chris Brown Tribute for Michael? I thought it was wonderful to see Chris come out there and do all those wonderful dance moves, but in all honesty he can never take the place of the one and only Michael. My Heart as well as Joy went out to him, and when he hurt, it also hurt me more, even cry harder because I could feel the pains, of missing the real Man in the Mirror. Just, would love to know your point of view of what you thought of the hold performance. Look forward to reading what you have to say about Chris Brown Tribute to Michael J Jackson. It is All for L.O.V.E.


ljamerson   June 30th, 2010 4:01 am ET

I loved the performance... I know it took a lot for chris to get up there and do that performance. America has treated him like an outcast. Rihanna is over it, so why can't america get over it. Who are we to judge chris? That's not our job.. I forgave chris right after it happen... I believe he needs a second chance and as a fan that is what I'm going to give him. Now as far as MJ's family.. I feel like they're just using MJ as a way to get more money.. Its bad enough MJ is gone but now they have a video game coming out.. They need to leave MJ alone and let him rest..


Susan62509   June 30th, 2010 4:15 am ET

Babycarie:

With some of the Jackson family stating "others" are involved "more than 1 person" and "CM was not acting alone" are all statements that impact the general public. The general public in Los Angeles will be where the jury pool comes from. Chernoff's PR lady named Miranda has already made statements to the press that CM's case will be defended by 1) MJ injected himself, or 2) another person(s) killed MJ not CM. With the Jackson family stating they feel others are involved, then they are supporting Chernoff's defense strategy with the public. Chernoff is a smart man and is playing off what the Jackson's are saying to the public. As you said Carie, it just takes one jury member to find a reasonable doubt. IMO, the Jackson's are referring to AEG, but do not state that publically which leads the public to form their own opinion. All this won't harm the DA's case as they have a very strong case for gross negligence, but it could impact the manslaughter charge. The Jackson family needs to support the DA, go after CM first at the trial, remain silent in their conspiracy theories and after CM's trial is over, then pursue the conspiracy theory. I put myself in the DA's shoes. If the defense says someone else killed MJ and the Jackson's are saying that also, I would be ticked off.

kathy 40   June 30th, 2010 5:52 am ET

2all. Some comments on here make ME want to PUKE. Calling themselves MJ fans and being judgemental about CB. What he did was wrong, but what about all the other celebrities, to name a few: Jay-Z (who's now considered a GOD), Eminem (who also made a horrible video about MJ), Charlie Sheen(repeated abuser)and Sean Penn (ask Madonna). History keeps repeating itself. First they SLANDERED and CRUCIFIED Michael Jackson and now it's Chris Brown. What hurts more is that most bashers are BLACK FOLKS. This hurts. CB is supertalented, much more than a lot of R&B singers PUT together.
He deserves a fair chance or else his talent will go to waste.

kathy 40   June 30th, 2010 10:16 am ET

P.S. Michael himself named Chris Brown as a "natural" talented singer and dancer with great potential and if MJ says so who are we to judge CB just because of one terrible mistake. Since then he has shown regret on many ocassions and he is really sorry.


kathy 40   June 30th, 2010 10:37 am ET

@Babycarie. RIP SWEET MICHAEL?? And you bash his family?? He came from this family, no matter how you put it. And please try searching for the right information. When Elvis died he had about $ 5.000.000. I don't like PRISCILLA since she talked down on Michael on OPRAH, but LISAMARIE has her mother to thank for that she inherited all that money on her 30th birthday. Priscilla rewarded herself of course, but in all fairness she deserves it because she manages the business. Jermaine is not my favourite Jackson, but he IS MIchael's brother. So please leave the Jackson family do whatever THEY think is right. Strange people have RIPPED MJ and are still sueing him. It's one lawsuit after the other. So why shouldn't his own family benefit. Michael was always willing to help his family. Joe Jackson once said: "Michael doesn't CARE about money, he could have made much more if he wanted to. He used to turn down very lucrative deals just out of certain principles he had."

I saw the Chris Brown performance and I actually had some mixed emotions. I totally believe his situation with Rhianna is done and over with and he's paid the price for his mistake. He's lost endorsements, record sales, even popularity (fans). Hopefully he's learned from his mistakes. Being a HUGE Michael Jackson fan it's hard for me to look at anyone imitating Michael without disecting EVERY move! My favorite part of the performance was Smooth Criminal. I thought that was genius. His tears....I don't know. On one hand I felt Chris Brown was overwhelmed by being back onstage again .... honoring Michael Jackson .... and being accepted. He's always made it clear he's been a fan of Michael Jackson's from a child. So maybe his emotions just got the best of him. I still have days that I cry when listening to certain songs of Michael's. On the other hand Chris Brown could have just taken advantage an opportunity to gain some sympathy. I don't know....

I was watching Larry King last night and he announced his show will be ending in the fall. I was shocked! I really do enjoy his show. Does anyone know if this will affect the blog? If the show is ending will the blog be coming to an end also?

Well now...if I had said I love the family and wish them well in their exploitation, and send stiff hugs and fake love to all, would that make you all happy?? I have stated 'my opinion' which in this lovely world is not only acceptable but encouraged. I am not a fan of the family, never have been, but that does not mean I cannot be a fan of Michael. So to all who feel that having admiration for one Jackson means marriage to all, good for you! I feel differently. As for Elvis, and might I add both he and Michael are dead (death is not an opinion but a fact), Lisa Marie inherited his fortune that she was entitled to like MJ3 will....and this is not about Elvis, it is about Michael.
The exploitation of Michael's death is inconceivable, and his family is shameless in their quest to get as much as they can while the getting is good. Yes many others have done the same, but family is supposed to protect each other from this abuse, yet there they are riding the wave. That is my opinion and frankly it is the opinion of many. So, if you feel the need to praise God and this family, great...but I feel differently.
As for the lawsuits, many of the family members dragged Michael's name into business ventures without Michael's consent and Michael had to buy his way out of messes his beloved created for him because they needed Michael in order to do anything. So, the lawsuits that are being paid for by Michael's estate are taking care of Michael's debt...as it should be...and if there is nothing left over for anyone other than MJ3, as it should be. Michael carried the financial weight of that family on his shoulders his entire life and is doing so in death...enough!
YES...
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
You are always in my heart.


babycarie   June 30th, 2010 11:56 am ET

Susan
I thank you so much for being my source of information and providing such detailed answers to my sometimes confusing questions!
It just really breaks my heart about Michael.
The family needs to as you said support the DA fully and stop opening their mouths! Janet said Murray administered, which supports the DA but the others need to let the DA get Murray then do what they want with AEG, etc.
And the whole Barrack venture...that was MIchael's dream and he should be here to share in it...damn, it just breaks my heart. Why those who supposedly loved Michael did not throw him over their shoulder and carry his skinny butt to rehab...if he were my brother he might be angry at or even hate me but he would be alive because he would be in lock down rehab...I would have done whatever it took...failed interventions....sorry, but that doesn't wash and I don't care if Michael was 15 of 80!!!
Again, thank you Susan.

I Agree with Jermaine 100%. Chris heard Michael. Bottom line.
End of story. He's repented. Move on. Michael lives through his music.


CuriousCat   June 30th, 2010 12:57 pm ET

@babycarie – you come across as a very angry, hateful person, very sad indeed, though you say you love MJ, not really sure you understand what "love" really is.

Also very surprised to see you here, you stated numerous times that June 25th would be your last post !!!

what happened ?


Lois48   June 30th, 2010 1:02 pm ET

Why is it that so many people can forgive Chris Brown after a year, but yet dragged MJ through mud his entire life? Chris Brown was guilty and Michael was innocent. I would never endorse a guy who has the tendencies to be violent towards a woman or anyone for that matter.

It is sad that we can excuse his behaviour of which he was guilty of but we continue to harbour hateful feelings towards MJ and now his family after MJ "passed" and Michael was innocent, as is his family.

Chris did a good job dancing but that's about it. In my opinion, I would not have let him represent MJ at any level for a tribute. There are many artists out there that are just as good and have much more respect towards others.


nick   June 30th, 2010 1:03 pm ET

get a life haters stop hating your so perferct that you cant forgive him he young its not like he 47 year old woman beater who does it all the time he made that one mistake so yall can go to hell


jane   June 30th, 2010 1:04 pm ET

if it was justin bieber you would forgive him


Lori - Justice for Michael   June 30th, 2010 1:30 pm ET

I am so sad to learn about Larry! That tweet sure got my attention.

Larry, I really appreciated all the opportunities you gave us to discuss Michael here on your blogs. These blogs gave as an opportunity to process everything that has happened since last June 25 2009. Unfortunately, we still have more questions and answers. I want to thank you for this platform and for all of the friends that I have made here. I wonder what will become of your blogs. It will be strange not to have them as the central gathering point. While there are many other blogs and websites, this is the one central place we all visited to converse about Michael. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It seems to me, that no matter what any member of the Jackson family does, or does not do, that they will be reviled for it. They cannot win for trying...as the old saying goes. Everyone just feels they are entitled to weigh in on anything and everything they do and say, I do not think that any of us here can even comprehend how difficult that must be for that family on a daily basis. Then think of how it was for Michael, magnified by infinity. Apparently some fans feel that they are entitled to be the judge and jury and rule on every action or inaction of every member of the Jackson Family, when no one knows what is really happening. None of us is there behind the scenes with them, we do not know the depth of their pain, we do not know what they are doing to process and cope with this tragic loss.

We should know more about the court case after the preliminary hearing in August. Each side will give the skeleton of their strategy for Judge Pastor and we will find out if the State has enough on their side so the matter will be bound over for trial. Maybe at some point we will actually get some answers.

And to all of my blogger buddies that I met here on the LKL thank you for sharing, caring, crying, and processing with me this last year. I heart you all, no matter what side of the fence you happen to be on. It was all part of the process.

And GENE!!!! I wish you would come back, espcially before Larry retires, I miss you and I would love to hear your thoughts on the trial.

I hope we can make these blogs a better place, for what time we have left with them....with the love, L.O.V.E.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL 8)

Ms. D   June 30th, 2010 1:35 pm ET

@Babycarie: Who Are you? you seem to be wounded from something that pertains to the Jackson Family. WHAT HAS THESE PEOPLE DONE TO YOU? Are you and have you been rejected or left out of something, because it is very obvious. GROW UP, GET A LIFE.


Ms. D   June 30th, 2010 1:43 pm ET

Chris Brown was spectacular, and Jermaine knew what he was doing when he chose Chris Brown for the Tribute.


Alexis (from Detroit, MI)   June 30th, 2010 1:53 pm ET

@babycarie: I took the time to read each and every comments that was posted to this topic, and I'm behind u 100% in your opinions about the Jackson Family minus Michael. Perhaps if others take the time to really listen and understand what you are saying, them maybe, just maybe they would see that your views on this whole MJ/Family situation as being true at face value. So yeah, I stand behind you on your opinions because quite frankly, I feel the same way. You also hit it right on the head about people that supposely love him could have tried to save him no matter what it took. Now, as a result of all the craziness, we've lost a man who've won the hearts of millions the world over but no matter what, I will never stop loving Michael for the brilliance human being that he was.

R.I.P my Angel,,,for in my heart, we will never part😦


Alexis (from Detroit, MI)   June 30th, 2010 2:02 pm ET

There is just waaaay too many people caught up in the madness of Michael's death, and regardless to whether people feel that CB was faking his tears to gain sympathy or not, that young man did an excellent job in bringing Micheal to the stage through his flawless dance moves. I have a forgiving heart, and although I don't condone any man putting their hands on a woman causing her bodily injuries, CB served his time, paid his dues, did his service, and apologized repeatedly so now what more is he to do, what more do negative thinking people want from him...this is so pathetic that people acts as though this young man don't deserve to be giving a second chance...wow, how sad😦

doubtingthomas2010   June 30th, 2010 2:47 pm ET

I don't know what was behind this tribute......it happened already. MJ isn't the first person to be exploited and sadly he will not be the last. Instead of putting the negative spotlight on CB and what he did ( which in no means do I condone due to the fact I know someone who was murdered due to domestic violence) I say we teach our kids to respect themselves and others. People are talking about CB and they may know someone who is guilty of the same thing. Instead of throwing stones at this man, let's hope that he has learned from this and is working on his issues and teach our boys and girls to avoid violence. Remember the man he did the tribute for was accused of a vicious crime as well, and even though he was found innocent that dark cloud was still over him. We don't know how he felt after the trail due to that. We don't know if he felt people thought he was really guilty of the crime, and acted strange around him. I don't care who you are, no one likes to be judged. Sometimes we need to put down the stones.

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!!


Lynn   June 30th, 2010 2:56 pm ET

I'm not really sure what to think about Chris's performance. He seemed genuine to me. Like was rpreviously stated by others, I think the emotion was a combination of many events this past year and I do believe he truly is sorry for past mistakes and deserves forgivness like everybody else. His performance was beautiful and heartfelt. As for Jermaine....I try my best not to be judgemental. I will admit to that being difficult for me though where Jermaine is concerned.

Susan/Carrie

I agree with you guys. The family needs to keep quite at least for now or CM is gonna walk. When they talk about Murray not acting alone I too believe they are reffering to AEG but like Susan stated, that is not how it will be preceived by the public. Making these kinds of statements is only going to be twisted to help the defense.


pat davis   June 30th, 2010 3:44 pm ET

Michael's problem was that he was surrounded by a bunch of money hungry people that supplied him with anything he wanted or needed whether or not he wanted or needed it. Like Jermaine said they knew his weakness and used that to their advantage. If you dangle candy in front of a child he's going to want it. I believe this is what they did to Michael. They knew Michael's weakness and used that to murder him.

chris danced great we all make mistakes and he deserves a second chance like everyone else.

Michael Jackson: The Making of a Myth – Part 1

Written by Deborah Ffrench

Monday, 28 June 2010

One year on, from the shocking events that took place in Los Angeles in the summer of 2009, and the universe of questions Michael Jackson's extraordinary death threw into orbit shows no signs yet of being answered satisfactorily. That Jackson actually died on June 25 is not in question. But it is the manner in which he departed that birthed an epilogue of controversy. Courtesy of TMZ's first truly global scoop, conversely at 14.26 pm as the vitality in Jackson's body flickered and died, the world as we knew it would galvanize into unprecedented hyperlife. AOL would call the ensuing web meltdown a "seminal moment in internet history." Jackson's death would precipitate a virtual news blackout of anything that wasn't Jackson related. From then to now, speculations of the Grisham-type variety about the state of Jackson's health and body to conspiratorial scenarios involving AEG, Sony, Jackson's last advisers, and his doctor – have raged like wildfire across the media.

Los Angeles, in the wake of Jackson's death, as well as coping with the influx of mourners and the world's press, also endured a summer of simmering tension between its bullish City Attorney, Carmen Trutanich, and Tim Leiweke – president of AEG, the sports and entertainment jewel-in-the-crown subsidiary of the Anschutz Company. Long-standing billboard issues, the city's huge debt, and good old-fashioned ego, resulted in public sparring for several months as the two men locked horns over who should foot the bill for Jackson's magnificent Staples Center memorial last July. Simultaneously transmitted live in over 22 countries around the world, news sources recorded the worldwide viewing figures as in excess of 1.3 billion, making it the most watched live television broadcast in history. The run-up to that event saw countless tributes from celebrities, heads of state, politicians, friends, and fans. But there was anger and a repetition of old accusations too.

On Capitol Hill, the day after Jackson died, when Congresswoman Diane E. Watson asked the House of Representatives to observe a minute's silence for Jackson, some members protested by leaving the House floor. Congressman John Yarmuth, would later tell radio pundit John Ziegler that the gesture made him feel "almost nauseated." On the same day, Maureen Orth, past correspondent for Vanity Fair, appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe and Today and declared Jackson, "a failure as a human being." On June 29, Rush Limbaugh called the media coverage a "horrible disgrace," and on the eve of the July 7 memorial, Congressman Peter King took the time to release a youtube video pronouncing Jackson, "a pervert" and, "a low life." Diane Dimond, a long-time Jackson detractor, responding to the blogs of grieving fans on her website where she had posted an article just days after Jackson died, wrote that she hoped Jackson's death would be "a teaching moment for millions " adding, "the cyclical nature of molestation that causes the victim to grow up and victimize others .the list of what Michael Jackson's life can teach us is long."

The next few months would bring a seemingly endless stream of graphic, brutal revelations. International speculation about the results of the autopsies, the shock discovery of propofol and other narcotics in Jackson's system, the redefining of his death as a homicide, arguments over how fit for This Is It Jackson had been, ever-changing dates for the final burial of Jackson's body, custody of his three children, as well as the fight for executive control of the Estate; all severely polarized a city with a history of igniting easily.

A succession of tributes at the BET's, VMA's, Emmy's, Grammy's and finally the Oscars – albeit briefly, brought some relief from the rancour. But with the awards season over, the business of determining what and who killed Jackson, returned to the fore when Murray turned himself in to be formally charged in Febuary this year with involuntary manslaughter. The following month, Joe Jackson and his attorney-on-call, Brian Oxman, launched public opening shots against Murray in a 13-page legal document filed at the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Effectively serving notice to Murray's lawyers of their intention to pursue a wrongful death civil suit against their client, Chernoff and his team can hardly have been surprised since a civil suit so often follows or parallels a criminal one.

Headlines that 'Michael could have been saved 'followed in the wake of Oxman's and Joe Jackson accusing Murray of not acting quickly enough or, more damagingly, disclosing vital information to staff at the UCLA Medical center Jackson was taken to. Both Oxman and Joe Jackson claimed that when Jackson arrived at UCLA, staff had to use "aggressive resuscitation" to establish a pulse and a heartbeat, which eventually stopped. In the lead up to Murray's trial – if that actually happens, it is inevitable details such as these will take center stage in the media's coverage. What is also certain, is that this coverage will focus almost exclusively on the most sensational aspects of Jackson's alleged drug dependency for maximum effect and maximum ratings.

In the eye of this storm, the fate of Doctor Murray, a man who increasingly bears the look of someone completely bewildered as to how he arrived at his infamy, seems almost surreal. While the media have consistently placed Murray sharply front and center of the investigation into his death, they have so far declined any public self-reflection on the part they arguably played in creating – or at least, exacerbating the conditions that brought Jackson within touching distance of a fatal tragedy.

This is not a defence of where Murray stands along the line of causality that led to the death of Jackson. Involuntary manslaughter, a paradoxically catch-all yet legally tight charge with barely punitive consequences for someone found guilty of it, needs only the component of reckless judgement to be present, and Murray looks likely to qualify. But the focus by the media – and indeed many of the fans, on Murray's still-to-be-determined culpability, is in reality, also limited. While not exactly the 'fall guy' his defense team have cast him as, the truth is, Murray, who had only been in his ex-employer's life for three years before Jackson died – is not only the only player in this story.

Famously reticent, Jackson – after the success of Off The Wall in 1979 and the phenomenon of Thriller in1982 – had long ago retreated behind carefully constructed PR statements and controlled press calls in an attempt to limit an already chaffing over-exposure. Already no stranger to the knife, in 1979, Jackson had rhinoplasty surgery to remedy damage sustained during a dance session. Later, he would have surgery to restore cohesion to his scalp after the serious burn injuries he suffered while filming a 1984 PepsiCo commercial. By the late 80's, while he was still relatively comparable to 'little Michael' from his Motown days with his brothers, the media were still a relatively neutral presence in Jackson's life. Fantastic tales of 'wacko's' exotic lifestyle at Neverland played in the public gallery as evidence of a bizzare but adorable boy/child.

This neutrality eroded, as Jackson's physicality changed more radically and his perceived 'oddness' began to attract much more criticism and attention in the intervening years between his highly successful Bad tour and the beginning of his promotional chores to support the release of his Dangerous album in 1991. For years, beyond reach of curious onlookers to the magic kingdom he seemed to inhabit, it would, be the momentous events of 1993 that would shatter forever the fragile stand-off that existed between Jackson and the press.

Attempting to scope an overview of the most turbulent and devastating years of Jackson's life is almost impossible for one reason. So much of the truly important information was not covered by the journalists and networks paid to do just that. Most Americans remain unaware to this day that the 'facts' they were presented with in both 1993 or 2003/5, bore no resemblance to the truth of what was actually behind the headlines and ubiquitous Jackson media coverage. The ambivalence that many people have about Jackson's legacy hinges on these omissions, and it for that reason that retracing the steps of the media-led immolation of Jackson's name and reputation remains an important task.

It would of course be both ridiculous and naïve to have expected journalists, editors, and TV networks to have ignored the commercial news 'value' of the accusations Jackson faced from 1993 onwards. But in charting the negative narrative pursued by an entire industry, it can be clearly seen that the media's behavior as a whole – and that of certain individuals within it, went way beyond acceptable standards for any profession. The highly effective 'monsterdom' of Michael Jackson was both deliberate and systematic. But in examining its construction, it is possible we may come to understand how a myth was built.

Most people think they know Jackson's life-story:

Boy accuses Jackson in 1993, Jackson goes missing, Jackson cries on TV, Jackson pays boy off. Jackson gets weirder and whiter, dangles baby off balcony, appears in a documentary with disastrous results, stands trial in 2005 – then gets off because he's a celebrity.

Except that behind these captured media moments lies a much more complex story. A human story.

In relation to 1993: The context of the ferocious custody battle between Jordan Chandler's parents, the use of a controversial drug to extract an accusation from a child, overwhelming evidence to suggest Jordan's father, Evan Chandler, planned and managed to extort Jackson aided by unscrupulous lawyers manipulating the no-win situation of a molestation accusation, and the real reasons why the financial settlement was paid, were given little to no meaningful attention by the media.

Once lit, the biggest story of the early 90's was fanned into a fire by specific media outlets, tabloid brokers, and television journalists using compromised sources – all of which obscured crucial facts from the American public. The reasons are obvious enough.

An industry that needs a fast turnover of fresh news to shift copy and attract audiences is not motivated to 'slow' a news story down. The speed at which a story develops creates its own momentum, regenerating itself in the process. For headlines to have their day, something has to give – and in 1993, it was Michael Jackson.

In the last two decades, the advent of satellite news gathering (SNG) changed the face of the television news industry. Satellite news vehicles could drive to the scene of major stories anywhere and transmit on-site. When the allegations against Jackson first broke on a local LA news channel, few could have guessed that Jackson, at the time a much loved artist and known advocate of childrens' welfare, would so quickly become 'first blood' for the radical new era of 24-hour 'rolling' news reporting.

For America, the first hint of the media saturation that was to come began on August 23, 1993. KNBC-TV, broke the news that Neverland had been raided in its early evening news slot.They had been tipped off the day before by Don Ray, a freelance reporter living in Burbank at the time, after he himself had been called by a source in the early hours the day before. Ray, describing the media tsunami that followed said he, " watched this story go away like a freight train." Indeed it did.

The Jackson coverage would make the hot story 'de jour' – the revelations of Heidi 'Hollywood Madam' Fleiss's black book – pale in comparison. In her 1994 article 'Was Michael Jackson Framed: The untold story' journalist Mary A. Fischer wrote, " within 24 hours, Jackson was the lead story on seventy-three TV news broadcasts in the Los Angeles area alone and was on the front page of every British newspaper."

One of those front pages belonged to Caroline Graham, back then a journalist at the Rupert Murdoch owned British tabloid, The Sun. After an early tip-off, Graham, convinced her editor to hold the front page. The Sun's morning edition ran with 'Jacko Child Abuse Probe ' as its headline story on August 23. The rest of Fleet Street jumped on the scandal a day later.

The pace of events would avalanche, however, as a direct result of the leak of a confidential document to an American TV reporter at Hard Copy – a syndicated tabloid news television show, and its sale within hours to Splash News Service, an LA based agency that operated as a de facto 'clearing house' for tabloid news stories.

A go-between for the anonymous source of the leak met Hard Copy reporter Diane Dimond and her producer Steve Doran, in the early evening of August 23 at an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica. They would leave that meeting with an illegally obtained copy of a report detailing the accusations made by Jordan Chandler and his father Evan Chandler (now deceased), in an interview with the LA Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS). Hard Copy insisted it did not pay for a copy.

Aware of the impending leak, Jackson's security adviser at the time, Anthony Pellicano, in an attempt to beat the press at their own game, held a press conference on August 24. Confirming the investigation was over child abuse claims, Pellicano's disclosure sent seismic ripples through an already bated media.

The reaction to Pellicano's confirmation amongst the media – barely controlled hysteria.

At a time when the police were officially "not disclosing " any information, the threat of the DCFS leak had already claimed its first consequence. It would compel Pellicano to pre-empt the leak, thus revealing the nature of a police investigation that had barely begun to gather evidence. Journalist, Allan Hall, then based at The Mirror – a British tabloid, recalls that at the time, " you had a sense that people were flying in from all over the world." Such was the media appetite for Jackson news that within 48 hours literally hundreds of journalists descended on the City of Angels.

The explosion in ratings across the media that the release of descriptions of graphic, unproven allegations against Jackson generated, would only make the TV networks and editors more willing to pay for information from compromised sources and tabloid brokers. This practice would directly affect the direction and substance of the criminal investigation against Jackson. It would also have a direct bearing on the pressure felt by Jackson and his lawyers when the civil suit was filed in September 1993.

The decision by TV executives, producers, newspaper editors and reporters to use an illegally obtained document to broadcast incendiary accusations to the public, represents the critical point at which the media essentially 'entered' the state's investigation. Nothing had been established, no charges had been made. But yet headlines went around the world linking Jackson's name to something that even the suggestion of – destroys.

On August 25, Dimond, with an overtly 'he's guilty' slant, told an audience of approximately 6.1 million (Nielsen figures), that the report Hard Copy had " exclusively "obtained was " extremely graphic and detailed.right down to the sexual act." Splash, busy fielding offers for copies from LA to Tel Aviv at $750 a time, ensured that the next day every television screen in America tuning in to either NBC, ABC, CNN, would have seen the words written by the social worker who conducted Jordan's interview, " while laying next to each other in bed, Mr Jackson put his hand under [the child's] shorts, " flashing up on their screens.

In those first early days, the real damage to Jackson came not from the police, but from the media roar created by 24-hour rotation of the same allegations, the same pictures, the same soundbites. This roar, would allocate air-time only to the most lurid details of the accusations. The broadcasting of the DCFS report on prime-time television as well as accelerating the pace of the Jackson story, also clearly directed the public to form an opinion based only on an accusation – not proven fact.

The facts were these:

Jordan Chandler, the child at the centre of the allegations, whose family first befriended Jackson in May 1992, categorically denied being molested by Jackson until he was removed from the custody of his mother, June Chandler. Up until August 1993, the only person accusing Jackson of anything, was his father – Evan Chandler.

The relationship between Jordan's divorced parents, already fractious, deteriorated rapidly when Evan's attempts to convince Jackson to buy him a house failed. It was only after this rejection that Evan first raised the issue of molestation. And it was only when Jordan was under the physical control of Evan – a man who would seriously assault his own son in 2006 – that he would then accuse Jackson.

Evan, a dentist, who at one point only narrowly avoided losing his licence after the Board of Dental Examiner's found his work revealed "gross inefficiency " and who aspired to a full time career as a scriptwriter – owed his ex-wife $ 68,000 in child support and had shown little interest in Jordan until he became aware of Jackson's friendship with his son. In 1994, Mary A. Fischer quoted Dave Schwartz, Jordan's step-father, as saying he believed Evan's reasons for insisting Jackson had molested his son were because [Evan] " wants money."

June Chandler, until told by the police in late August '93 that Jackson 'fit the profile of a pedophile,' repeatedly stated that she did not believe Evan's accusations. Her lawyer at the time, Michael Freeman, would tell Frontline in November 1993 (aired Febuary '94) that June 'changed' her mind when she became afraid she would be prosecuted for parental neglect.

The existence of considerable collateral evidence, in the form of tape recordings Schwartz secretly made of conversations between him and Evan between June and July 1993, as well as eye-witness statements, support the view that it was when Evan engaged the services of Barry Rothman – a Los Angeles lawyer with a savage reputation and code violations from the California State Bar against his name – that Evan actualized his intention to extort Jackson.

On July 11, Jackson's lawyer, Bertram Fields, in an effort to head off the lawsuit he had seen coming when Jackson first told him that Evan was demanding a meeting with him back in June, agreed to Evan and Rothman's demand that Jordan be allowed to stay with Evan for one week.

Jordan would never return to his mother's custody. Crucially, it would be over the course of the next few weeks following this transfer of custody that Jordan would accuse Jackson in the presence of a third party.

From July 12 through to August, documental evidence suggests that procedural steps were put in place by Rothman to secure Evan's custody of Jordan, and to ensure that continued.

On June 15, Rothman presented a hypothetical abuse scenario to Mathias Abrams, a psychiatrist who, without meeting either Evan or Jordan, supplied Rothman with a written statement that, " events as presented above provide the basis for the conclusion that reasonable suspicion would exist that sexual abuse may have occurred." If evidence were needed of premeditation by Evan Chandler and Rothman to allege molestation, to many this would be it.

The use of the drug Sodium Amytal on Jordan during 'necessary' dental work by Evan and an attendant anesthesiologist, Mark Torbiner, would be the turning point in these events. Jordan would tell child pyschologist Richard Gardner (now deceased) from the Los Angeles Sexally Exploited Child Unit that when he "woke up," he remembered being asked if "anything had ever happened between [him] and Michael." Jordan, still under the influence of the drug, would reply that it had. Evan Chandler would later state that this was the first time Jordan confessed that Jackson had touched his penis.

From August 4 to August 16, Evan and Rothman initiated the negotiations with Pellicano.Their demand:

$ 20 million from Jackson. In those meetings, it was understood that this money would prevent Evan from making his accusations about Jackson public. These negotiations had irretrievably broken down by August 13.

On August 16, June Chandler, realizing Evan intended to keep her from her son indefinitely, authorized her attorney, Freeman, to apply to the court for the return of Jordan to her custody. Freeman informed Rothman that this order would be applied for the next morning. Rothman immediately informed his client, Evan.

The next day, August 17, Evan took his son Jordan to the psychiatrist Mathias Abrams that Rothman had already primed for exactly this turn of events. Jordan repeated the molestation story. Mathis, required by California law to report such as accusation did so, as Evan and Rothman would have known he would.

The dangers inherent in the use of Sodium Amytal are well documented. Suffice it to say, no other dentists or psychiatrists at the time in 1993 – or indeed now, recommend its use on a child, in the course of dentistry, or as an adequate basis on which any accusation made while 'under' such a drug should ever be upheld as legally or ethically authentic.

Evan, himself, corroborated that he sanctioned the administering of the drug when he was interviewed in 1994 by a reporter from LA's KCBS-TV on May 3, 1994. The news report quoted Evan confirming that he had, " used the drug on his son, but the dentist claimed he did so only to pull his son's tooth and that while under the drug's influence, the boy came out with allegations. "

Despite, unsubstantiated claims circulating on the internet that investigative journalist, Mary A. Fischer, no longer stands by her 1994 GQ article on Jackson, this is not the case. As recently as November 25, 2005, when Jackson had already been acquitted several months before, Fischer restated and updated her 1994 findings about Evan's use of Sodium Amytal on his son. In an interview with Greta Van Sustren on Fox News's – On The Record, Fischer said,

"It's a powerful psychiatric drug which, when under the influence of, a person is highly suggestible. And that drug was given to the boy by the father of the boy and the father's friend who was a dental anesthesiologist. The dental anesthesiologist gave the boy the drug in a dentist's office." Fischer also reconfirmed that in 1993, "there was no corroborating evidence. As there often is in these cases of alleged child molestation, it's easy for someone to make an accusation, but it's very hard to defend against it."

But perhaps the single most important detail that reveals extortion was at the heart of 1993, is the most obvious one. Before the allegations went public, and while the protracted negotiations for a financial settlement that Evan initiated were still progressing, the easiest thing for Jackson to have done would have been to simply pay Evan what he wanted. Jackson did not do this.

Fischer, speaking on a PBS documentary in 1994 observed, "They couldn't reach any kind of mutual agreement, but had they been able to, the interesting thing about it [is], this case would have never gone beyond this room."

This simple fact was apparently lost on the journalists, networks, TV pundits, and general public in 1993, who did not challenge the fact that in an apparently criminal situation where he suspected that his son had been molested, Evan Chandler sought the advice of a notoriously ruthless civil lawyer instead of simply going to the police.

Given that Anthony Pellicano widely distributed the secret recordings of Evan and Schwartz's converstions to the press and CBS, who rushed out the first exclusive coverage of the tapes, a snapshot of the headlines surfacing just days after the allegations first broke, reveals where the media intended to stand on the subject of Jackson's innocence.

'Peter Pan or Pervert?' asked both the New York Post and The Sun in Britain, within days of the story breaking. 'Michael Jackson: A Curtain Closes' opined one, Britain's The Mirror kept it simple and punned one of Jackson's past hits with 'He's Bad', while The Sun ran with 'Jackson Used Me As A Sex Toy,' and The Washington Post – 'Malice In Wonderland.' Even the serious publications stepped into the fray. Notably Newsweek's 1993 cover, 'Is he Dangerous or Just Off The Wall?' and Time's, 'Michael Jackson: The End of Innocence?' would take the debate beyond just the tabloids' walls.

Despite the media's efforts though; a little over seven days after the allegations had broken, and a concerted campaign of damage-control consisting of press conferences called by Pellicano showcasing Wade Robson and Brett Barnes as examples of Jackson's 'healthy' relationships with children, expressions of unity from Jackson's own family, and playbacks of Evan's voice threatening, "it will be a massacre if I don't get what I want " to assembled press scrums – had resulted in a degree of softening towards Jackson in the public's mind.

Opinion polls at the time compiled by A Current Affair, Entertainment Weekly and The National Enquirer, suggested well over 70 % of Michael's target audience, teens and females did not believe the allegations. This percentage was considerably higher amongst African- Americans.

Just when the extortion component of the story was beginning to emerge as a viable reason for the allegations, the media found a way to reignite a story that was in danger of resolving itself. In the absence of any personal statement from Jackson, the momentary 'gain' generated by the release of the tapes, would be shortlived.

Billed at the time as 'explosive new revelations,' the first of these 'witnesses' would be Stella and Phillipe Lemarque, former chefs at Neverland. Using Hollywood investigator and well known tabloid broker, Paul Baressi (known to occasionally use firearms during fee negotiations,) the Lemarques attempted to sell their story that they had seen Jackson 'abusing' the child actor Macaulay Culkin to anyone waving a checkbook. Their story was eventually sold first to The Mirror for an unspecified amount, headlining their exclusive as 'Jacko's New Home Slur,' and subsequently in The globe for $15,000 who ran with 'Peter Pan or Pervert: We caught Jackson Abusing Child Star.'

Lemarque, who alleged that Jackson's technique was to 'get' children so overstimulated that they barely noticed what Jackson was doing to them, when subsequently cross-examined in 2005 by Jackson's lead lawyer, Thomas Meseareau, would admit that Barresi had advised him that saying Jackson's hand was inside Culkin's shorts instead of outside, would significantly raise the asking price they could sell their story for. Indeed, writer Maureen Orth in her 1994 article 'Nightmare in Neverland,' wrote that Barresi actually showed her two written versions of the Lermarques 'story,' that clearly revealed how the fee affected the content.

In '93, after the Lemarque story broke, Culkin publicly denied he had been molested by Jackson. But the press barely covered it, some even suggesting Culkin's denial was an attempt to 'save face.' In Jackson's 2005 trial, Culkin, who was strangely not called by the prosecution as a witness even though under the prosecution's own 'prior acts' criteria he qualified as one of the 'victims,' insisted on testifying after Mr Lemarque's testimony. Under oath, Culkin adamantly denied any such incident occurred and also described the accusations of molestation against Jackson as " absolutely ridiculous." It has since emerged that in 1997 Lemarque owned and ran a hardcore website called 'Virtual Sin,' which has since folded.

However, back in 1993, without the benefit of hindsight to evaluate the Lemarques's credibilty, their story would add considerable fuel to an already blazing fire. The pressure on Jackson, increased simply because the media were willing to pay the price the Lemarques demanded.

The Lemarques 'revelations' would be swiftly followed by two former housekeepers from the Phillipines – the Quindoys. Three days after the first news of the allegations, ABC would send a reporter to Manila to hear their 'eye-witness' account. And once again, the media would pay for the privilege. Meanwhile, Diane Dimond at Hard Copy was also keen to speak to the Quindoys'. The bidding was about to begin.

The fees asked for by 'witnesses' and paid by the media would come to thousands, so great was the demand and commercial value of 'fresh' news in the Jackson story. As Paul Barresi would tell Frontline in1993 (aired Febuary '94), " someone just has to have a story, a half-truth, and you mix with it with a little venom, then you have a tabloid story. "

I thought Chris did a great job and you can tell that he loved Michael so it was from his heart. That's what means the most so it's the best tribute I've seen to date. I almost cried when I saw this because I love and miss Michael too. Even though it has been a year, the pain has not gone away.


Lois48   June 30th, 2010 4:36 pm ET

@ Everyone deserves a second chance, but did MJ get a second chance??

@Lori – great post...yes it will be sad to see Larry go.

Cris are you lacking something upstairs? A brain maybe?


Marguerite   June 30th, 2010 5:16 pm ET

Rhonda- Loved your post.

Curious Cat- There are many that say they are not coming back but they alwsys return. LMAO So I take the words "I am not coming back" to mean- You bet your hiney I will return and often. How are you my friend? Love to you.

cris- I loved your post. There is a lot of truth to the words you posted. Don't let what people say get to you. Let it go in one ear and out the other. When people here attack someone they do so because they are jealous. Love, hugs and smiles to you my friend.

Diana77   June 30th, 2010 5:28 pm ET

mjj4ever777 thank you for your wonderful post. All MJ fans should read this...

ATTENTION for those of you who love Michael as much as I do...Please take the time to read this!

First let me assure you that I come in peace. Next I ask you to hear me out before making any judgment calls.This is all in the name of LOVE.
I ask each and everyone of you who reads this, how much does Michael Jackson really mean to you?

My dear friends, there have been many things that have occurred since June 25th 2009, that "believers" and "non believers" don't agree on and that is ok,as everyone is entitled to their own opinions.But whether you think Michael is "dead" or "alive", whether you believe he was "murdered" or whether you believe everything is a " carefully planned "production", I ask you to put all of that aside for just a few minutes. Please just open your mind to what I have to say as I believe it is very important.
Believers and non believers...how did we as Michael Jackson fans become so divided at a time as crucial as the "death" of the man that bonds us all together? I mean the one thing we all have in common is the fact that we LOVE Michael Jackson and I hope that we all know what he "stood"or "stands" for!!!
Michael spent his entire life trying to unite the world with love. He endured trials and tribulations that no man should ever have had to endure, especially a man like Michael who spent his life dedicated to helping those in need! Michael Jackson was, is and will always be a true Humanitarian...a giver of Love, a giver to the sick and helpless, a giver to those of us who just wanted to listen to his music...he gave, gave, gave and how do we repay him? We wait until he "dies" and then, the people who he thought understood him the most became divided!! How is that for a kick in the face to Michael? Do you think this "division" among his fans would make him happy? NO WAY!!!

If you really truly love Michael, then I ask all Believers and non Believers to please take a few minutes and take a look back on the life of Michael Jackson. Go and listen to the lyrics of his songs...i recommend "Cry", Earth Song, TDRCAU, Black and white, Heal the world, man in the mirror, WILL YOU BE THERE...you get my point, but please, really study those lyrics. Then take a few minutes to check out some of his album covers, watch some of his videos...not only his music, but his "speeches and interviews.' then take a few minutes to watch even one or two videos on "NWO"and "EWO" "Haarp" etc...just open your minds for a moment
Then after doing that, take a look at what is happening around us right now. Do you ever remember a time when Mother Earth was so volatile? Every day we wake up to more death and destruction and what do we do about it? We sit back and think that oh well "we" don't have to worry about it, they will take care of itl! And Michael said " they who, it's up to us!"
Michael has given us sooo many clues throughout his career, as to what "was"or "is" important to him. He made it abundantly clear that we need to make that change!. When we had him here with us, he "tried" to guide us on a path to "CHANGE". He taught us that bringing Love back into the world was important, but we didn't listen! "We had him" folks, just like Maya Angelou said at the "memorial", but when we had him, we didn't make an effort to change!We said we would, but words are just that...words! Actions speak louder than words. Speaking of the memorial, go back and listen to every word spoken during that ceremony and while doing so, close your eyes and let the words you hear, be spoken through Michael, hear his voice, see if you hear his "messages" in those words, some of you may be surprised!

So I ask you this, if we had him and we didn't get it, isn't it a "possibility" that he HAD to "die" in order for us to truly get his message? And because he did "die" are we going to let that be in vain also???
So for those who believe he is gone and are seeking "JUSTICE4MJ"..would this not be "poetic" justice, to honor the man we all love, by being more open minded to all possibilities and to BELIEVE in the importance of his message and the importance of spreading his knowledge to others, in honor of him?
And to all the "believers"...Has Michael's message not reached you either? Must we continue to look for clues and wonder when he is coming back? Must we lose hope at the drop of a hat? What kind of army is that? Certainly not one of Love! Do you honestly believe that Michael did all of this, planned out every last detail, to reward us with a comeback, when we have failed so miserably at understanding what this "hoax" is all about? Do you think he had nothing better to do, then go to all this trouble,to find out we don't get the "message" and then we expect him to come back and reward us with his presence??? FOR WHAT? Failing the "Test".
I'm really afraid that we have done a great injustice to Michael, whether you "Believe", or not!
Michael does not owe us anything!!We owe him!! We need to show Michael...no..., we need to show ourselves, that Michael's life was not in vain...we need to unite all of Michael's family together once again and we need to fight for our rights as human beings, because if we don't, we are truly doomed.That is a fact!
Michael wants us to do this for ourselves..he has given us the tools and the knowledge and now it is up to us.
Michael has been a Hero to all of us for a very long time..it is time for MJ fans around the world to join their hands together and let us reunite again! Let us show Michael that we heard his Pleas for Peace, Love, Understanding and yes,Change. It is time for us to become Michael's heroes! If we fail now, we have failed the one person who has given us so much...Michael! Do you want to live with that for the rest of your lives? I don't.

I could go on and on and on, but if you don't understand by now, well I am truly sorry. I truly hope that everyone will take the time to reflect on all this, because, what harm can it do? if you still can't "connect the dots" in this wonderful adventure, let me say this, the answer has been there right in front of our eyes the whole time.As a wise man once told me, "we only see what we want to see". It is time to raise awareness to everyone and anyone who will listen!We need to open our eyes and our minds, to all possibilities...We need to Believe to Achieve! We need to raise our voices as one... for if there is no UNITY, there is no HOPE! We need to show Michael that WE CAN DO THIS!!!
L.O.V.E= look, observe verify everything
L.O.V.E= law of vibrational energy
L.O.V.E = love overcomes virtually EVERYTHING!!

Only good things will happen, when we use love to guide our way...trust me the reward will be worth it...its not too late, but it may be soon!
Trust in yourselves my MJ family...Michael got "us" to where we are right now, lets let him know that "we" can take it from here!!! sound familiar??

Thank you for taking the time to read this....lets make Michael and ourselves proud!
With the L.O.V.E

I am really happy that MJ3 has not been used/exploited to make money off MIchael's death...yet. Katherine...my heart breaks for her loss but she is no dummy and she is making a huge chunk of change etc. off Michael's death. I know Michal loved his mother but with the shady dealings she has been involved with, maybe she should just take care of MJ3 and stop trying so hard to make $ that she really doesn't need because the per month estate cash is more than enough for a village to live off.. Now, this is my opinion and is not intended to offend, nor had my opinions to date...so all the nasty cats etc. can just go purr elsewhere!! And I guess I will leave the blogs when I feel like it...meow!!!


The Rose   June 30th, 2010 6:54 pm ET

I felt that Chris Brown's performance was heartfelt as he idolized Michael is entire life and that is one of the most powerful songs to sing.
My mother always told me if you don't have anything nice to say about someone you should just keep quiet, I really try not to have an opinion about Jermaine but when his name is mentioned "Word to the Badd" keeps popping into my head. I don't know how a family member even if angered or hurt could write and sing a song like that about his own flesh and blood knowing the world would be listening. Maybe he could heed his own advice, "I'm just very emotional just knowing what has happened. Chris Brown is a human being, and we all make mistakes. We can't condemn him for what has happened. We hope he has learned from it."
I don't think I have ever heard him publicly apologize for what he said in that song about Michael.

Just my opinion....I know I am no judge of someone else's character.

@All,Good evening to you All! I want to say ,as Jodi Gomes said 'redemption ' as regards cris brown .Who of any of us is perfect? Havent we all done something we wished we shouldnt have? Let me be the first to say ....I certainly have.
Once again ,I hope we can look at Michaels family ,as any othere ,one with ups and downs ,challenges ,imperfections,etc.we too need to understand ,the brothers ,get royalties still from their hard work ,and have never stopped working ! and somehow .,I feel any negative comments toward Michaels family ,would just hurt ,him more.would we dare to say the things we write to their faces? and do we really understand the dynamics ,here?
Lastly ,the message is about L.o.v.e...can we improve ,and try to imagine how it would feel to be spoken of in such an unkind way? I say this with Love, there is plenty of ...hate...out there ,lets choose to different!
I Love you all ,and cris ,you are still a gentleman ,and fun too! Love to All maria C.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” –Corinthians

Love will always be a part of our lives. It is the emotion that God has given us to use for him and to other people.

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

Love to ALL!!!!

For change to happen each and every one of us has to make that change. Not tomorrow or next week. But now, today. No more negativity, no more bashing, no more attacking, If you don't have anything good to say then don't say anything at all. Treat everyone at all times the way you want to be treated. No more knifing others in the back. The list goes on and on but I think everyone understand s exactly what I mean.

I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change)

Now comes the hard part to show you actually want to make that change. If you are want to make that change then say so. But you have to mean it and once said there is no turning back .

I Marguerite Want To Make That Change and the Change starts now.

The crowd is tense, the stage is bare.
They look to see, no one is there.
A light snaps on, he stands chest bare.
A wraith like image, they catch his stare.

The music starts, a pulsing rhyme,
His body sways and moves in time.
His hands are raised, his voice, it soars
The crowd ignites, as one it roars.

His dancing, moving like no other,
sends daughters screaming for their mother.
He gives his all, his heart and soul
His music makes the young feel whole.

The lights go dim, he moves away,
To show his magic another day.
The toll it takes no one can see
To be the best for you and me.

All his life he's had to bear
The load of always being there.
To give his life, his heart and soul
Exposed to all, as in a bowl.

No chance to simply be himself,
Forever being on the shelf.
He cannot do the simple things,
Like simple folk, no joy it brings.

Why should he be the one to pay
The price of fame, to fade away?


TRUE-TO -YOU   June 30th, 2010 11:04 pm ET

@judie my friend

This is it!   June 30th, 2010 11:43 pm ET

Oh my dear World,
what has gone wrong,
You aren't what I remember,
where have you gone,
No more freedom for children,
in their play as a child,
Pestisides are being sprayed,
with chemicals of growth gone wild,
A goal to make more money,
is the carrot dangling in the eye,
Places of worship are empty,
our faith is lost but why?
Marriage is no longer sacred,
a divorce is the new trend,
Respect is not shown,
in violence we defend,
A World of before,
for I really do miss,
A World I do remember,
a memory thats nothing like this!

Bless You All~

"Being a fan of Michael does not mean one has to be a fan of his family" "do not assume we all feel that sense of extended loyalty. The family was not the support system they pretend portray now, and they were not a close knit unit...and that is truth. They are a business institution and are out for their own self interests, which now seems to be making money off Michael's death."

____________________________________________________

I couldn't agree with you more, spot on!!!

everyone is entitled to an opinion, and for those who support the jacksons, so be it, but for the others who see them for who and what they are, they TOO have the right to express their feelings as such. after all this IS Larry King's blog, and not a jackson family fan site!!!

there is no such thing as leave the jacksons alone, when they crave the spotlight as much as they do. and it's a total shame (IMO) to see the lows they have gone to exploit Michael. no other family is out and about promoting record labels and artists every chance they get. who else is pointing the fingers at everyone else, but themselves for the destruction of Michael. maybe the jacksons should take a good look in the mirror first before blaming others.

Michael was smart to leave the Johns in charge of his estate, because with his family at the helm, his estate would be worthless in no time, with no financial security for his kids.


Sharon   July 1st, 2010 12:15 am ET

Chris Brown was amazing, I would like to share my thoughts with the family about moving Micheal remains to never lands, I personally think that they should exhume Micheal's body and cremate his remains then build a monument with his remains inside. At the moment the fans need to have access to him,just like ELVIS.


Lori in Massachusetts   July 1st, 2010 12:23 am ET

While I agree Chris Brown deserves a second chance I have to go with my feelings, Michael would never hurt/abuse a woman or anyone for that matter. Usher would have been much better at paying tribute to Michael, he's a good guy , was great friends with him & could have done MJ's moves much better.

As far as what Jermaine has to say I could care less, Jermaine is out for himself along with many of the Jackson's.

I have respect for Katherine, Janet & Michael's children & will keep them in my prayers.


*Michael...L.O.V.E.*   July 1st, 2010 12:53 am ET

Thank you all for your love and support, sunflowers, white roses, cards and letters you sent or brought in celebration. I especially love the sunflowers with the eyes. I'm sorry the whole family couldn't be together on June 25th but we're a show business family and some members had other commitments. We're all a family though, one big family, just know that.

I love you all. I really do. It's all for love...L.O.V.E.


doubtingthomas2010   July 1st, 2010 1:00 am ET

LoveConquersAll – thank you.

Lori- I feel I need to say this. If a performer is a good performer that is one thing, it doesn't mean their character is great. I say this because you mentioned Usher as a better choice because he's a "good guy." I mention this because I know personally that he is a very nasty person- especially to non-famous people. That is how a lot of celebrities are personally. If we went by their character, there would be no entertainment industry. I think it is kind of a shame that all the Jackson's are getting a bad rap except for KJ, Janet and the kids. So ALL his relatives are out for money. Besides, Genieve which I heard is coming out with music a lot of them release music independently and are working on film independently. What is wrong with that? How would we feel if all our family squabbles was put in print and had people all over the world judging it. Really think about that, I don't care who you are no one comes from a family that is perfect and if all your family's dirty laundry was aired like the Jacksons, a lot of people wouldn't know how to face the public. Some of you will probably reply and say, "my family would NEVER......"- really, how do you know how they would react being raised the way the Jacksons were, actually in the same situation they were in. How do you know the relationship he had with his family???? People here are judging the Jacksons, why not the Kennedys??? How are they any better??? The Jacksons entertained for their fortune, how did they make their money??? How many scandals do they have???? Why aren't there specials on the kids in that family???? That is one example, that many here throwing stones should think about-how would you like it if you were wearing those shoes?????

@Family is family when the chips are down we stand strong.No one has the right to judge michaels family we are just outsiders looking in we dont see the bigger picture.Michael loves and cherishes is family it is just ignorant for us to asume that we know them leave them be.Can any of us possibly say we always love are siblings all the time No they annoy us anger us but at the end of the day it is night when it matters the bond is strong .Would you like it if someone publicly bashed your family

MICHAEL STAY STRONG WE HAVE YOUR BACK HUN:)


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 1st, 2010 1:22 am ET

@Mr A

Hope all is well with you and yours. Here is just a small something that I hope that you like.
Friends are angels sent down to Earth to make good days and
and help us find our way.

A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches
your heart.

A Friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of
one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the
gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth
keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

So, please do not let negativeness, chase you away.
Hugs, Love & Blessings...Letta


lois48   July 1st, 2010 1:25 am ET

As Teddy Riley said in an interview (talking about MJ) "He wanted to kill the world's hate. That was his plan".

Remember his message.

@"Michael...L.O.V.E."

How wonderful to see you here on the blog! Well someone must be feeding that misinformation from somewhere however the question is do we have to believe it??

Do hope you are keeping well. Much Love, Light and Peace to you.


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 1st, 2010 1:27 am ET

A true friend is someone you can trust with all your secrets.

You can make more friends in two minutes by being interested
in them than you can in two weeks by trying to get them interested in you.


Marguerite   July 1st, 2010 1:35 am ET

Letta, True and Pixie Dust-– To you three who Have Decided To Make That Change I hold out my hand to you.

@Angie Pie
Hello my dear friend. I know that some days you have a bad time with loads of work. I pray and hope that my daily words help's some and help's other also who may enjoy reading them.

Love is patient, love is kind,
Love does not insist on its own way.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
Hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
– I Corinthians 13:4-8

Now abide, faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of
these is Love.
– I Corinthians 13:13

When the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through washing of rebirth, and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior; so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life .Titus 3: 4-7

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men and women. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for power equal to your tasks.

To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.

We may think God wants actions of a certain kind, but God wants people of a certain kind.

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

Sorry, that it is long , got carry away a little. I get excited at times with spirtual words. Love Hugs, & Blessings to ALL Letta


Rhonda   July 1st, 2010 1:46 am ET

@Michael L.O.V.E

What would life be with out friends like thee
I'll tell you, like no longer being free.
Imagine what life would be so sad and blue
To go through life without that special you.
And I know we live so far away
Through the internet we are like castaways
Never get to touch or hug you for this I only pray
For some day I hope we can meet
To hug and laugh and dance to the beat
I know this would be a treat
For now this is all I see
Is my good friend here with me
Just think what life would be
Without friends like thee

Much Love To You

Letta-
Thank you for your quotes and thoughts in the last couple of days. There is so much truth in each word that you have posted and they are words that I have needed to hear. Thank You!!

Missing MJ and Marguerite-
I 100% support what you both have said!! No matter what side of the fence we are on the message is the same "Make the Change" I am on board and am thankful to you both for making the main thing the main thing!!

To all remember the words of our president:
"We are the ones that we have been waiting for. We are the change that we seek in the world."

What have we done today, this week, even this year to make that change?

Make that Change......

Our road will be smooth and untroubled, no matter what care
life may send, if we travel the pathway together and walk
side by side with a friend

Begin your friendship with kind words and compliments and
live a lifetime as friends.


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 1st, 2010 2:32 am ET

@Rhonda
Here a little something for you. Hope that you like my friend.

Friendship is thoughtfulness – its having regard for other people and
their feelings. When you're a true friend you give thought to what would bring others happiness, whether it's a special gift, giving some loving attention, or helping them celebrate a special occasion. It's thinking about how your actions affect others and caring about how they feel.

Awww here a little bit of wisdom too.

The questions you ask consistently will create either enervation
or enjoyment, indignation or inspiration, misery or magic.
Ask the questions that will uplift your spirit and push you
along the path of human excellence.
Love ya...Letta Blessings to you

@Letta

Good morning Letta!🙂

How are you on this lovely day, dear? I am wonderful, just wonderful and thank you so much for asking. Oh no someone chase me away? That could never happen...could never be! They'd have to physically drag me away whilst kicking and screaming, know this... hahahaha. Although I will admit, yes I was completely caught off guard, taken a back when reading some things on the other blog. It's very unfortunate, truly truly sad the lengths some will go to just to hurt others. I don't understand it and I never will, Letta. Initially I cried...because I was hurt, hurt and confused Letta. How could someone say such horrible things? What is this? Where did this come from?

Then it came to me...an epiphany! NO! I shouldn't be crying, why AM I crying? I know WHO I am...I know WHAT I am and I am none of those horrible things being described or said about me. I am NOT that person...no! It's all quite absurd really...the nerve of some people, to completely make up lies and start horrible rumors. It's completely senseless, useless, evil and WRONG. There is something very wrong here. What are we as a human race...a people becoming? Evolving into? What happened to loving thy neighbor? Having compassion and caring for our fellow brothers and sisters?😥

Something has to be done...MUST be done. There has to be some type of CHANGE here. We're going downhill, at a rapid speed. This may sound cliche or corny but it starts with YOU...it starts with ME, all of us. We must look deep within ourselves, dig DEEP. Figure out what is really underneath...inside. What is at our core? Our very being, our foundation. We must work on ourselves....transform ourselves. Heal ourselves FIRST. Learn to understand ourselves....love ourselves and then that's when we can begin to be a strong and positive force in the world. That is when we can instill and teach our children and younger generations the qualities of life....we MUST give them that gift, the tools and the knowledge...nurture them, inspire them... and most importantly, we must give them love, show them love...lots and lots of LOVE. They're like little sponges....they absorb and take in EVERYTHING, they will then interiorize all of that, it will stay with them, it will become apart of them, become second nature... all the good that you have taught and instilled into them will make them good, honorable people and they will pass all of those great qualities onto their children and on and on and on. It's like a domino effect of sorts. That is when we can make this world a better place. I truly, truly believe that!

@the blog in a whole

Oh my there are so many wonderful posts here. It's really a beautiful thing to witness, to see...all the love, all the positive vibes. Thank you, all of you.

@All of my wonderful, amazing friends.

Gee, thank you. Thanks for everything, all that you have done and continue to do. I love you all so, so much. I couldn't ask for better virtual friends haha. You're all such wonderfully, beautiful people. You're all good, decent people...with pure and innocent hearts truly. I cherish each and every one of you...I will treasure our friendship for many, many years to come. You all make me so happy and proud, I'm so honored to know you, to be in your precense, to have you as my friends. I have never been happier, I have a certain glow when I'm around you, I light up like aC hristmas tree, yes I do really haha. Thanks for sticking up for me, thanks for coming to my rescue, I truly appreciate all of your kind and uplifting words. Thank you, all of you for the laughs, the fun times...the kind gestures, the love, the friendship, for all that you do for Michael, his children and his family...THANK YOU!


babycarie   July 1st, 2010 8:09 am ET

This is never ending exploitation and is just shameful.
What's next...selling his baby curls, baby shoes, baby teeth then perhaps auctioning off sleepovers at the compound where fans can sleep in Michael's old bed?
Poor Michael...no privacy for the departed. Personal memories and private family treasures are obviously not priceless. I hope this is just bs...leave Michael alone to rest in peace!

Katherine Jackson to Produce MJ Movies

7/1/2010 12:25 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned ... Katherine Jackson is knee-deep in a business deal to produce and distribute several movies on Michael Jackson's life, and she is on a collision course with the MJ estate.

Howard Mann, the guy who co-authored Katherine's coffee table book, "Never Can Say Goodbye," is also producing a movie that will feature video from Michael Jackson's childhood through the end of his life.

We're told Katherine has hundreds of hours of video, including the family's big move from Gary, Indiana to L.A. after The Jackson 5 signed with Motown.

We're told Mann just bought the rights to 26 hours of Michael Jackson video ... owned by Michael Jackson's former business partner/confidant Marc Schaffel. We're told Mann has paid Schaffel in the eight figures for the video.

Now here's the problem ... the Michael Jackson estate has the exclusive right to market Michael Jackson's name and image. We're told Mann and company are comfortable with their legal position, because the beneficiaries of the estate - Katherine and Michael's kids - are profiting participants in the movie. In fact, Mann tells TMZ he and Katherine plan on releasing a series of movies.

The estate would not comment, but as far as our research shows, there's no loophole when it comes to marketing Michael Jackson's name and image - whether Katherine and the kids are beneficiaries or not.

Awww dear Mr. A so very true about change that you posted to Letta.🙂
Just always remember that you have a beautiful heart and soul. Please, please never let anyone ever tell you different. You are sooooo sweet I just really want to hug you right now! I am so honored that you're my friend. You know I'm always going to stick up for you because I'm not going to let anyone mess with our friend.😉 Wonderful people like you are so great to be around. Awwwww that is so sweet how you say that you light up like a christmas tree. I light up when I'm around you too. You've no idea... I'm in bliss when you're around. I'm like a child that is being called back into the house from playing with friends. I never want to leave, I get a charge when I'm around you. I wish I hadn't missed your visits the last time you stopped by...I really miss you a lot. I love you plenty and then some. Many hugs and blessings.


babycarie   July 1st, 2010 9:02 am ET

My husband went to the Gulf to assist with the clean up...he will be returning next week...what exact;y will you all be doing to 'make that change' other than using this blog to gain attention? Forgive me but talk is cheap.
This blog is for Michael yet I see the same people here all the time using it for their own attention seeking needs.
The topic is regarding Michael...not love and holding hands and hugs and smiles...all the posts about making a difference are useless unless put into action which cannot be done behind the key board patting yourselves on the backs for words..
To those who 'pledge' this I propose you stop wasting these blogs in support of your ideas and put them into action...because God will be witness, so you will have to answer to a higher power other than the LKL blog.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
You really did work to make a change.

And to profess love to an imposter...make me ill.

Good Morning Everyone🙂 !

@ doubtingthomas2010.....Hi there! I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to comment on your post and @ mjsalive.... about family. I've said from the beginning that I support the Jackson family 100%. I may not agree with everything they say or do, in fact when I see Joe Jackson coming towards a microphone, I cringe! You never know what's going to come out of his mouth. I have family members that drive me nuts BUT I know how and when to deal with them. We don't agree all the time BUT what family does??? At the end of the day, they are still my family and I love them no matter what.

"Pixie Dust "   July 1st, 2010 1:14 pm ET

pat davis,I have to agree with you and mjsalive's posts about family.There is no such thing as a perfect family,no one has a right to judge Michael's family what so ever.Every family has their own way to deal with situations that arise through life.One may not agree ,but is it our place to question, judge or even give an opinion,I think not.As in every family we all strive for happiness,sometimes it isn't all rosey but with that there is always love.Love is the strength that can see a family through.(Smiles) to you..


Lori - Justice for Michael   July 1st, 2010 1:34 pm ET

Good morning/day to the bloggy!

Is it just my imagination, or is this bloggy a whole lot shorter than it was yesterday? I guess the LKL Minions of Moderation (MOM) are hard at work making sure the bloggy is a better place for you and for me.

@pat davis July 1st, 2010 10:06 am ET. I agree with your post about family. We all have them. And sometimes we just don't understand or agree with what the do and say. We can't control them. All we can do is sit back and shake our heads. I guess we can extend this concept and apply it to our bloggy family as well. We don't have to agree with what is posted..but we are all entitled to our opinions whatever they are....

He/she did promise to return and reveal more information someday. I still want me some crystal embellished boots like Orianthi's.

@Lucero, Luda, Lex, GENE, and everyone else I have missed from back in the day, I hope you are still reading even if you no longer post very much. Hope you are well.

Respect the bloggy. With Larry's retirement looming upon the horizon, who knows how many more opportunities we will have to gather together and blog with one another.

Have a lovely day everyone.

To nourish children and raise them against odds is in any time, any place, more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear weapons.At the end of the day, a loving family should find everything forgivable.Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.Family is just accident.... They don't mean to get on your nerves. They don't even mean to be your family, they just are.The family is one of nature's masterpieces

Beautifully stated Letta. You are a treasure and a visionary.

With friendship and love, there is always respect, honesty, consideration, forgiveness, openness, kindness, attentiveness, flexibility, understanding, trust, nourish, advocate, champion, encourage, support and defend. There will always be differences of opinions, but with the above; one can meet at a plateau which is favorable for all.

Thank you for reminding us the value of friendships and love! You are one friend I always cherish!

Thank You my friend

I do try my best because I always try to show love to everyone and respect
I am pretty good at putting others before myself
This is what a friend does
Thank You so much for the beautiful saying
Love To You My Friend


Brownie   July 1st, 2010 7:18 pm ET

It is sad that in our world the act of forgiveness is no longer. It is our forgiving of others that allows us forgiveness for thigs we have done ourselves. Without forgiveness there isn't love.... we need love – – more love in the world for us to survive.

Since when, does one wrong doing totally define a person – or better yet why does that have to define the future we let them have? Who are we to make that determination. Our JOB is to love, and love says to forgive, to understand, to help one change and give one the opportunity to change.

This performer gave a beautiful tribute to Michael Jackson – weather the tears were performed or were from his heart is for the performer to know himself. It is my understanding that the performer was influenced by Michael Jackson; in other words, Michael Jackson had an influence on his musical career and maybe also in other ways. That is wonderful – do we have to crush that...

Celebrate the magic of Michael Jackson – and remember the wonderful message of Love and Peace he brought to the world everyday of his life. Remember the magic he created the wonderment... these are fantastic gifts... remember and celebrate those – don't continue to tear down people.. these are our brothers in this world.. always remember to LOVE to say I love you and to show acts of love and acts of forgiveness... that is part of being human ... part of humanity.

Love & Peace always –

Lynn-IL   July 1st, 2010 10:17 pm ET

So those of us who are trying to make changes in our lives based upon Michael's life work and message have been asked to give an account for what we have done.

This past year I have had some great opportunites to do some things that I might have missed out on otherwise. I've been able to volunteer with an after school program for kids; teaching music to kids that would otherwise not be exposed to the arts. At the same center I've been able to mentor some at risk kids who don't see alot of love in their homes. Its great how they in turn make positive changes in their lives and as a result reach out to other kids.

Environmentally speaking I have tried to spend sometime each week working in the town I live by voluntering to clean up highway litter, working in a community garden and food co-op and also supporting Wine to Water (I actually heard about this from CNN!!) a non-profit group that works to purify water around the world so that people have access to clean water. Check out the site at winetowater dot org.

One other lesson that I have learned from Michael is not an easy one but has been incredibly freeing. I have learned from his example to respond in Love when people lash out in hate towards you. When people seek to undermine the good that you try to do or mock what they don't understand it is so easy to get angry or feel defeated, but in the end that helps no one. So I've really learned from the way he overcame obstacles and the haters in his life, to hold my tounge and respond in love. It a constant struggle, but is freeing when you begin to realize that you are no longer adding to the probem but are becomeing a part of the solution.


Marguerite   July 1st, 2010 10:20 pm ET

cris- Your life is not boring.lol First thing you need to do is calm down and think. I am taking it your phone number was unlisted. Correct? Make a list of everyone that you gave the number to and call them to see if they gave your number to anyone and if they did who. You have to find this out. Who ever told the globe your number is either a person you gave the number to or someone you gave the number to gave it to someone else who gave it to the globe.lol I am sure yu will figure it out. Other than this how are you doing?lol Love an dhugs to you my friend and take care.


pat davis   July 1st, 2010 10:24 pm ET

Just had to share this. On Friday, June 25, 2010, I was outraged at The View when their guest on Michael's one year anniversary was Diane Dimond!!!! I could not believe my eyes!!!! This woman despised Michael Jackson and was one of the ringleaders in the campaign to destroy him. She contributed to his demise during the trial and throughout his career! Obviously The View had not done their homework on this woman or they would not have chosen her. On top of that she has the nerve to have a book out right now about Michael Jackson!!! She couldn't stand him in life, but writes a book and profits off him in death? That's what I call exploiting Michael Jackson!!!


Angel Pie   July 1st, 2010 10:27 pm ET

Wow I can't believe I'm posting again after a few days having computer problems.

@ Letta –
Thank you very much for those beautiful words for Today. I was able to view the blog at work. Thank you for uplifting my spirit at work with those words.

@ Mr A-
Welcome back. Long time no see your postings. For a moment I thought you were totally gone from here. I am sure that many including I are happy to see you back. I hope all is well with you.
O by the way, yes your a beautiful Christmas Tree whose colorful lights twinkle upon an Evergreen tree. A symbol of Hope and Love that last forever and not just one of the Holiest Night of them all. Take care Mr A, hope to see you around again.

Lynn-IL- great post.


doubtingthomas2010   July 1st, 2010 10:38 pm ET

pat davis- I've come to realize a lot of these shows have hosts that only read from cue cards. They aren't doing research. This is a perfect example of people looking into where they are getting their information from. I don't care for that show anyway and I don't think they would be the platform that would vindicate him in the first place.


butterfly   July 1st, 2010 10:41 pm ET

@cris – now remember there is nothing to fear otherwise the fear that you fear most may be visited upon you! When you ask "How did they find me?" – I didn't realise that you were off the radar!😉
Just know the Law of Gravity in that apples fall naturally to the ground...looking forward to seeing you soon seeing that you aren't MJ... 🙂

pat davis   July 1st, 2010 11:17 pm ET

doubtingthomas.....Personally, I do enjoy The View and up until Friday, I always thought the ladies were good about gathering information on their guest. This one really threw me for a loop! They couldn't have done ANY research on Diane Dimond. This woman has never said one kind word about Michael Jackson in her career as a " journalist " , and I use that term loosely. I must say that did cause me to look at the show differently.


"Pixie Dust "   July 1st, 2010 11:18 pm ET

Marguerite, I am happy to hear that you are fantastic, I am doing fantastic myself...Love and Smiles right back to you.


Mary-Jane   July 1st, 2010 11:19 pm ET

@ Brownie:

Your post was beautifully stated and very heart-felt.

However, I interpret the ideology of forgiveness a little different! It is quite possible to forgive others while not completely forgiving yourself. Sometimes, we hold ourselves to a higher level of accountability. For that reason, one can forgive others and not self.

Many years ago, I made a terrible decision that had a profound impact on another being I loved very deeply. To this day, I know the impact of that decision is still there. I live with this on a daily basis and will for the rest of my life. For only in death will there be some resolve.


Rhonda   July 1st, 2010 11:28 pm ET

@You Know
Just a reminder of how wonderful you are
Miss You

Here this stranger stands right in front of me
Is he an imposter imposed to hurt me next
Or a friend to be
Questions pounded in my head, but I was willing to take the chance

The perception you see isn't who he should be perceived
He felt the anger, brought out the pain
Started sealing my broken heart
That was on its way to a grave
A chance was taken and no regrets were made

Beautiful on the inside as well as the out
If he ever sought a soul, I'm here to help
Here hard times have beat him, But still he stands tall
He is understanding of life, Its like he's been through it all
No judgments has ever been past for he's not one to judge

We shared our stories, it seems we share something in common
Cried and laughed
I looked back upon a chance I took way back
He snuck in and stole my trust
But he's my Great Friend who I've grown to love

All My Love

If Whoopie had been on the View she would have mentioned the ridicule Dirty Diane subjected Michael to...Whoopie has always been a huge advocate for MIchael...she even stated on that show that she would and HAS left her children alone with MIchael!! I love Whoopie!! Do not like that show, but love Whoopie!!


babycarie   July 1st, 2010 11:34 pm ET

I did not see the Friday show so if Whoopie was on and did not stick it to Dirty Diane then shame on Whoopie...but still love that she defended Michael...but shame if she did not address Dirty D on her horrid treatment of Michael.

Marguerite   July 1st, 2010 11:38 pm ET

Brownie- It is very sad how people are now. People are so easy to point fingers at others for things that are not even true. All that has to happen is one person says something about another person that is not even true and before you know it that persons reputation is ruined because of vindictiveness of others. It all comes down to jealousy and hate. What I don't understand is why people believe what these vindictive ones say and are so easy to condemn without going to the person and having a one on one conversation with that person.

letta(IbeLIEve)   July 1st, 2010 11:45 pm ET

@A
Hope that you day is going lovely, also my friend, so happy to know that you don’t take with negativity people say to or about you. Well I feel for you to have to go through with you did because of the comment made about you. Well to answer your people seek attention and in order to do so the go after incense people like you. Especially, since there are many on the blog that appreciate reading your opinions, But, you must remember there is also a bad apple lurking to find their next victim. So, please don’t cry or get upset with people who say these horrible words.

Mr. A as long as you know who you are, and what you are capable of that’s all that matters. You are a very nice gentleman, who cares about others feelings. I am so sorry that this person word made you cry, especially for something that is not true. The way I look at anything is like this, If you are not present when something has happen, then you really can’t say it do, that is my outlook on life. Please smile at people like that, all they doing is seeking attention and if you play into their hands then they win.
I agree with you comment about making a Change, here and within ourselves, that is what the message that Michael is talking about. We, as a whole need’s to change for the good of our family, their families etc….Yes, agree that change is needed, but before some can make that change they need to look at themselves, and see what needs to change,. “Love the part about love ourselves and ten that when we can begin to be a stronger and positive force in the World”. This is so true. But the main key is Change, within you and after you learn to love who or whom you become. Just maybe if all take this message at hand our world would be greater. The importance in all this is the children and future children to have a much better life, hopeful without hearing lies all the time. Anyway I can go on and on but I’ll stop just happy that you are okay and standing strong my friend.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another

Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends whom we choose.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 1st, 2010 11:58 pm ET

Yes, some things in my immediate neighbourhood try me sometimes. I find myself feeling guilty when I try to judge things and probably have taken things wrongly or much to heart.

I am now always rethinking the way I think and see things and try to walk in another's shoes, and not to be too judgemental and jumping to the wrong conclusions. Also trying to be more forgiving and loving and going that extra mile.

Whatever good one does in their lives, they are doing it for Jehovah and as some bloggers have pointed out before.......be careful how you treat people, as you never know what is going on in their lives.

@

I know people are entitled to their own opinions, but, it so saddens me when they run down the Jackson Family and the Presley Family in such a horrible manner. Even Larry King's Family.

They are not your family and how dare you talk that way about them. You do not know them personally, so why slander them publicly. That is just gossiping and taken from the tabloid media who thrive on gossip.

If you say you are a fan of Michael Jackson, why talk bad about his family. Don't you think that would be hurting him also. As the biblical saying goes........THE TONGUE IS VERY HARD TO TAME!

Think again about what comes off your tongue before you speak.

Susan62509   July 2nd, 2010 6:53 am ET

Hi Babycarie:
I hope you are doing well today. I have the utmost respect for you because you live in the world of reality. You have the mental capability to spot the blog imposters and people with deceiving agenda's. People have been giving their opinions for over 2010 years and that is part of life. Whether an opinion is stated as a positive or negative is defined by the interpreter and incorporated into their personal belief system. The LKL blog is a perfect example of this. You and I and others on this blog know that Michael died and we will defend him and not have a love or respect for his enablers, users, backstabbers, abusers, and those financially exploiting him for their personal gain. When people walk in our shoes, then perhaps they will understand where we are coming from and realize that hate and negative are incorrect vocabulary words to describe our cause.


This is it!   July 2nd, 2010 7:40 am ET

The morning has come,
the stillness is there,
The sun is shining,
a new day is here,
The waves are rolling,
the beach is bare,
The birds are singing,
a melody they share,
The dew of the grass,
is glistening and bright,
The sky is clear,
a beautiful blue in sight,
A blessing for all,
of the beauty it shows,
The morning says hello,
a perfect gift to bestow

Bless You All~

@Angie Pie
here is something to start your day off my friend.
Love must be sincere, Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful on hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. (Romans 12:9-13)

Faith sees a beautiful blossom in a bulb, a lovely garden in a seed, and a giant oak in an acorn.

hugs, Love, Blessings to you and everyone else

@my friends so true

heaven is no longer heaven
if you do not obey seven
all the powers will disappear
and a pie she will make you fear
a purple haze of mind control
in my life that has no role
the truth you know will always prevail
when it comes you land in jail
love and light how very wrong
you will be all alone my friend be strong
i will not judge you i wish you well
we all have problems in life i can tell
but hurting others is not my way
i have seen the truth thats what i say
its is called looking in the mirror its clear to see
that you were never any good for me
and now that i have the proof
in my heart i see the truth
i did not need to read between the lines
the rules were printed clear you will find
i did not make them and i did not break them
you abuse them and you take them
so becareful who you call a friend so true
just be careful what they want from you
and if its to make you feel bad and sad
then a true friend you never had
a warning to all just take care
and of a certain number just beware
now its all out for all to see
you get the truth you know from me
its quite shocking dont you think
it started when my pc drove me to the brink
and as i am pc stupid what do i do
i call in an expert to help silly true
they explained in simple terms
and the truth is what silly true learns
yes it hurts i must say this
but i could not live in an ignorant bliss
i have made that change it has started with me
and its so liberating can you not see
so to anyone i may have offened
i was in a purple haze and my ways are truly mended

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

cris,sorry to hear that you have to get out of dodge and now on the run.Stay safe.(Smiles) to you.

This is it! .Such a beautiful poem,thanks for sharing.(Smiles) to you.


babycarie   July 2nd, 2010 10:25 am ET

Hello Susan!
I am delightful and hope you are as well!!
I am pleased to be in such wonderful sane company!! You have contributed so much fabulous information to these often times barren bizarre bloggys!!
And it really is sad to see those who come here obviously desperately in need for attention!

I am no fan of anyone who exploits Michael, and I am rethinking my feelings towards Katherine...why would she sell such intimate personal items to such a low life shark to be thrown together for some documentary?? She really surprises me in her quest to exploit Michael, and her efforts could prove damaging to the estate and MJ3...and the $ will be taken via the $13 million owed. I cannot even conceive of selling my daughter's childhood memories...I just cannot understand such a desperate need for money...why not just take the allowance, take care of MJ3 and let Branca et al deal with the rest...shady characters are a huge reason Michael was in debt and here they come again!! Michael never had any privacy, and now even his most intimate family moments are for sale. Would I love to see this stuff...absolutely. Will I see it...no. I never watched TII, and refuse to purchase anything MJ as there is some hidden agenda to exploit him with each item sold.
And to those who see this as hate and that I should have some warped sense of loyalty to the family, again, I AM a fan of Michael...not his family...and YES, that is possible!

cris
Pretty sad.

@ibelieve25

Hello dear, how are you tonight? Oh you don't have to thank me, I meant every single word...truly did....yes. You are all such wonderful and amazing people and I'm so blessed to have you...all of you in my life. I couldn't be happier. Thank you for you.🙂

Oh the chair is just incredible...yes I love it! I have to say, I have never experienced this level of comfort with any other chair/seat in the past. It's really something special, one of a kind .... like a chair/bed all in one...hehe. Actually I prefer to take my naps and rest right here. There are many nights when I have simply fallen asleep with my laptop near me.🙂

I am very appreciate of all the time, effort, and dedication it took to design this amazing gift from you. It was a very kind gesture on behalf of you, thank you, thank you. Wishing you a pleasant night and sending many hugs your way!

@Maura

Hello sweet one, how have you been? Why thank you for those kinds words that you have expressed. That's very sweet of you, Maura. Oh I would love to give you a hug too...really! Hahaha it's funny that you say it's like you're a child being called away or into the house from playing with friends. There are many times when I feel the exact same way you have described here...it is truly a pleasure, a joy being there with all of you. I also wish that I wouldn't ever have to leave or go away...somehow having to leave is always bittersweet, right? I'm so, so sorry that you have been missing my visits and vice versa, Maura. Apparently, we're on two completely different life schedules here!🙂

I have missed you too...very much so, but that is ok. We will certainly meet again, now won't we? I've read that you've been under the weather? Oh dear please take care of yourself, get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and eat healthy and properly. What seems to be the problem?😦

I hope you're feeling better and sleeping well tonight, dear. I am sending many, many warm hugs to you. Take care and get well soon...please.

@LoveConquersAll

Well hello there, how are you? Why thanks so much for your kind and most inspirational words. They have really touched me, moved me in a profound way tonight. You're truly a lovely one, with a beautiful heart and kind spirit. I can really feel that, I truly believe that! I am feeling your positive vibes and peaceful nature right now and I am loving it. It's a beautiful thing...🙂 I am so thrilled to have you as a friend. I thank you.

The thought of me lighting up like a Christmas tree makes you smile and gives you the giggles? Hahah! Ahh that's wonderful, I'm glad I could do that for you, I will have to admit, knowing this has brought me smiles tonight, thank you for that. You're amazing.🙂

I am sending many,many hugs to you. I hope you're sleeping well.

@"Pixie Dust"

Hello, how are you? I haven't had the pleasure of speaking with you until now... but I would just like to thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate them and all you do here. I love reading your comments, you're always so kind and pleasant, it's quite refreshing. Your presence here is greatly needed and appreciated.🙂

@This is it!

Wow, you are it! Your June 30th 11:43pm poem is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. You are poetically gifted, a great writer and also a great thinker. I applaud you. Thank you for sharing your gifts here with us.

@Angel Pie

Hello and thanks for the warm welcome. How are ya? You thought I pulled one of those vanishing acts and would never be seen or heard from again? hahahha. No...never. I could never stay away for too long, I just couldn't, my heart simply wouldn't allow it. I was having problems posting. Ahhh I'm happy to be back, could not be any happier...really. I missed you the other night, wondered where you were.🙂

A symbol of Hope and Love, I love that and thank you but for everything.

@Letta

Hello Letta,

Yes I am doing well and yourself? Thank you for those kind and encouraging words...I appreciate you and all that you do. I'm so proud to call you my friend.🙂

@Maria Copelli

Hello Maria,

I'm not sure where you are right now or where you've been but I do miss you and I miss reading your heartfelt and inspirational words.
I hope and pray that you're happy and well.

take care, Wales in UK loves MJ, you could hide here without hassle.


Mary-Jane   July 2nd, 2010 11:03 am ET

None of us have accurate knowledge of the Jackson's family financial matters including current and future. Yes, we hear reports on TMZ; however, is the information 100% accurate? I would suggest not!

Often when the “breadwinner” in a family is lost, the family can be fearful. First they grieve, then move into fear. All the “what ifs” surface. For this reason, I urge everyone to make no judgment on Katherine. After all, the judgments are based only on assumptions!!!!


"Pixie Dust "   July 2nd, 2010 11:06 am ET

letta(beLIEve) your morning verses and quotes are a pleasure to read,thanks and yes it is a good way to start off everyone's day! Have a wonderful day letta,(Smiles) to you.


babycarie   July 2nd, 2010 11:10 am ET

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!
Enjoy the weekend!

Rest in peace sweet Michael.
MJ3 are smart, strong and independent people who I hope will not be manipulate by anyone!! We will continue to pray for them and hope that the money does not cause them pain the way it did you. Money can buy nice things but not happiness....May they always have laughter and happiness in their lives, and anything else is a bonus!

Peace.


babycarie   July 2nd, 2010 11:18 am ET

The beauty of a BLOG is to state our opinions...and that is what they are designed for...so to those who feel the need to ridicule, feel free to reread my posts as they are not based on assumptions but on information that I question, and do so on the blog. I eve stated 'I hope this is bs' but I am entitled to blog for the purpose of the topic...and that is the problem here...to much self righteous preaching and love fests and not enough substance!!
Katherine is no dummy...and anything relating to topic is fair game for discussion/bloogging...last I looked this is the LKL blog and not church.
Ciao.


Mary-Jane   July 2nd, 2010 11:20 am ET

@ Susan

You stated: .
“Whether an opinion is stated as a positive or negative is defined by the interpreter and incorporated into their personal belief system”

What a profound statement. It is a ""truism"". We organize the world around us through our perceptions, based on our beliefs and life’s experiences. It is seldom about the other but about within!

Thank you for the clarity of thought and wisdom! You are a gift!!


MarinaneS   July 2nd, 2010 11:21 am ET

Oh, Cris goings........ Just do not answer unknown calls you, ignore them and everything will be fine! But it's more like the fact that journalists something to smell out ...........................
Hold on ....... mentally I'm with you .......


babycarie   July 2nd, 2010 11:21 am ET

Read Sada's post...she put it beautifully!!!
"there is no such thing as leave the jacksons alone, when they crave the spotlight as much as they do. and it's a total shame (IMO) to see the lows they have gone to exploit Michael. no other family is out and about promoting record labels and artists every chance they get. who else is pointing the fingers at everyone else, but themselves for the destruction of Michael. maybe the jacksons should take a good look in the mirror first before blaming others."

Prayers to our military people who fight for our continued independence!!!!


doubtingthomas2010   July 2nd, 2010 11:29 am ET

Mary-Jane- I agree with what you're saying, but we don't have proof that he is the "breadwinner" for the whole family as well. Yes Katherine had RELATIVES living with her at Havenhurst and quite honestly its her business who lives there. Let's be honest, those relatives have been living there for years and no one cared until 6/25, MJ's children living there and news reports from "sources." We should wonder who was the person from New York who called CPS about what's going on in that house. I hope all these people passing judgement on this particular family are concerned about children who are being mistreated and people who are "exploiting" their family members in their own backyard. We don't REALLY know what is going on, we just know what the media is putting out there.

In all due respect, you can love MJ all you want, but that doesn't justify passing judgement on the whole family.

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!


ibelieve25   July 2nd, 2010 11:32 am ET

@ Mr. A
You are more than welcome my friend, the chair was built with lots of love for a very special friend. How fitting that it is one of a kind, just as you are. I will always be near Mr. A, only need to look as far as your heart my friend. That's where I'll remain always. Though the journeys of life may take us down different paths, its always nice to come home to see dear friends. Hope your travels are safe, and fun. Until next time Mr. A, much love to you. I will see you soon. Hugs.


Mr A   July 2nd, 2010 11:39 am ET

I have come to a conclusion that this will be my final post here. I would like for everyone to keep in mind what this is really about...it's about Michael, the human being, The Man, the father, the son, the LOVE and the messages he is trying to portray to the world. That's what THIS is all about and of course it's all for L.O.V.E. Keep true, keep strong, keep believing! It has been a pleasure, a joy being here with all of you... truly has! Thank you all for everything, for all that you have done and continue to do daily. You're all good, decent people with pure...innocent hearts. I truly believe that...

Please be kind, be respectful, and considerate of others' feelings. Have love and compassion for all of our fellow brothers and sisters....please remember that we, the human race...we are all in this together. We are one big family...one big unit. No more fighting, arguing, bashing, or petty back and fourth banter. Is this really what Michael would like to see happening amongst his fans? If you have to think twice before making a comment or posting information then don't even bother...It is more than likely going to hurt someone or cause conflict. Don't hold grudges, life is so fragile, so precious...no one knows when their short stay here will be up.

One last thing, always be the best YOU that all of you can possibly be. . Never waver, never give up and never settle for less than what you deseve! Fight for what is right and just! Heal ourselves, Heal our World.

love...Love...LOVE

Goodbye


MarinaneS   July 2nd, 2010 11:48 am ET

@Mr A

Helloooooooooo!
You rejoice me with your presence here. You're very cool!!!
And I always love to read what you write. Returning to this blog, I was so happy once saw your message. You are very kind and sincere person. Thank you!


doubtingthomas2010   July 2nd, 2010 11:55 am ET

Let's all remember, when MJ's kids are having bad days- its the Jackson relatives that they deal with. Its the Jacksons that they have been with since 6/25. When they are happy, it is those people that they are with that many here have a problem with. You don't think MJ ever wronged any of his relatives??? I'm pretty sure MJ has done things that weren't right and made mistakes like everyone else in the world. It's ok to say "don't judge MJ because of media lies" but if something is written about his family is true??? All these stories are put out for the public to feel a certain way about this family I'm not falling for it.

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!


lola   July 2nd, 2010 12:05 pm ET

Pat Davis-
I am outraged as well to hear about Dimond appearing on The View to discuss Michael, let lone on the anniversary of his death! It makes me absolutely nauseous. Is this a new book she is promoting or the book she wrote a few years back? Fans should boycott anything having to do with her and the publishing companies that publish such trash. She appeared on the documentary "MJ's Final Days" discussing the sex life of MJ and Lisa Marie as if she was in the room with them and knew the intimate details of their sex life together. Pathetic! I HATE that woman!


Mary-Jane   July 2nd, 2010 12:09 pm ET

Michael was not only a humanitarian, he was a visionary. He fully understood the importance in the balance of life on this planet. He truly believed that all life is “precious” And for that reason, we need to continue where he left off…..

Without a diverse biosphere, there will be no hope for our species. We “are” caught in the web of life on Earth. We are “only” a link within the long chain. When we continue to destroy all that is around us, how do you expect our species to survive? Life on this planet exists because of the balance. Without that, there is nothing!!! This fight about catastrophic events taking place in the Gulf of Mexico goes deeper than protecting numerous species, some on the brink of extinction …. It goes to the core of our being and our own survival. I hope we can unite so we can put an end or at least suppress our mass destruction tendencies and egocentrisms. The natural occurrence of nature gives way to species propagating and disappearing; however, we are creating an out of balance condition on this planet and with every species we exterminate, we are placing one more nail in our coffin…..


lola   July 2nd, 2010 12:18 pm ET

When a man strikes a woman he crosses a line. A line that should NEVER be crossed, regardless of how well someone dances or rides the coat tails of our beloved Michael. And that person should especially not be put up on a pedestal as entertainers always are. This sends a terrible message to women everywhere – that it is OK to cross that line and should be forgiven. It should not in any case. If a man crosses the line once, he will cross it again. That is a fact. Chris Brown showed his true colors the night he beat up Rhianna, not the night he imitated Mj to evoke sympathy. I hope the public is smarter than that.


lola   July 2nd, 2010 12:28 pm ET

In regards to Katherine Jackson, i think her actions show that she is a mother that loves ALL her children, not just her most famous one. She is not only looking out for herself and Michael's children, but the rest of her brood. That's what a good mother does – protects ALL her children and grandchildren, which she has many of. The sad reality is that Michael is now gone, therefore she must do what she must to keep her very large family financially afloat. It seems they are incapable of doing it by themselves.


Lois48   July 2nd, 2010 12:41 pm ET

Hello and Good Morning to my friends – nice to see the blog mellowing on a bright summer morning. I haven't been blogging much lately due to some family emergencies back East, of which I had to attend. I also have been mourning my sweet dog of 11 years who I had to put down in early June due to bone cancer. It was a tough month in many respects.

@Mary Jane – could not agree with you more. There is no need to make judgments on anyone, as they have not walked in their shoes. I agree the media reports are not 100% accurate in fact, they are 1% accurate.

@Mr. A – nice to see you on the blog and that you are doing well.

@Letta – thanks for the great poems and words of wisdom. Many should heed these words and take note of them. Hopefully we can catch up soon....😉 - it's Friday ya know lol

@This is It – Love reading your poetry. You are an inspiration to many and we look forward to your words of comfort, understanding and analysis.

@Love Conquers All – have been enjoying reading your posts with lots of heart. Many take note when love and positive emotions are weaved through words coming from individuals such as yourself. Oh and welcome to the blogs too lol.....

@Cris – The Globe huh? Well I suggest when you stop running, maybe have a tabloid burning party. Hope you find safe haven.

@Jessie, Mjsalive, Doubting, Tat, Tru, Lori, Pixie, Marg, Rhonda, Tat, Michael Love and others – great posts, we need to keep the faith and hold strong and more importantly LOVE.

Blessing and Love to all, keep safe this long weekend.


Lori - Justice for Michael   July 2nd, 2010 1:11 pm ET

@Happy Friday to the bloggy. Have a safe Independence Day Holiday weekend.

The deepest thanks to our military. I am mourning the loss of local military hero this week. God Rest his soul. God bless his family. Freedom is never Free.

doubtingthomas2010   July 2nd, 2010 1:15 pm ET

lola- I agree violence towards ALL is wrong. And I stated in my previous post that I by no means condone what CB has done. But what are we as a society going to do with men and women like him that are violent towards their partners???? He was rightfully shamed and humiliated- all the deals and sponsorships he lost I agree with, but at the same time can we hope that he gets help so that this won't happen again. As a society isn't it better to try to show the kids younger than him now that his actions are wrong and if they have the same traits show them other outlets than being violent??? I hope you feel the same way about Sean Penn and Charlie Sheen (highest paid actor on tv who shot a woman). I think something needs to be done with men and women like CB who are violent towards their partners. We know in this society violence is wrong albiet physically, psychologically , internet bullying and nothing is really being done about it. If anything, CB should be an example to men that if you are violent towards woman there are strong repercussions. Do you really think he is the only entertainer that is violent????? Why is the media still on this incident instead of showing how to really deal with domestic violence???? We need to hope that this young man is working on his issues and teach the children, teens in our lives to avoid violence. If that is his career, is he supposed to be unemployed now?? If they were to round up all the entertainers who are guilty of domestic violence I don't think there wouldn't be any left. Sad, but very true. They are individuals and have issues like everyone else. I think the focus should be on making sure this man and others like him are getting the help they need to work on in preventing this crime to happen again.


lola   July 2nd, 2010 1:16 pm ET

May I suggest everyone go on the abc website and give your feedback/complaint about Diane Dimond appearing on The View on June 25. This is a slap in the face to millions of fans around the world to have that vulture make even more money off of Michael, even in his death. If the View – or any other show for that matter supports those that made Michael's life a living hell, those shows should be boycotted.


"Pixie Dust "   July 2nd, 2010 2:18 pm ET

Mr.A.thank yo kindly for your post to me.it is truly appreciated.i am sorry you have choosen to leave you will be greatly missed.I have enjoyed reading your posts as well.Sending love and smiles to you.


MarinaneS   July 2nd, 2010 3:22 pm ET

@Mr A
I greet you once again today!
My God, this is news ..... I am so saddened by your last message.
I'm only feeling came from the fact that the Brazil team lost the match. Because of this, I even tears streaming down her cheeks, you can imagine that. I used to about myself even think she could not, except with great difficulty. Oh ....

But here such things happen .... I'm so sorry that you decided to leave. Despite the fact that I have not been able to communicate with you here. I really do not want that, would you leave this blog. You are like a ray of light on this blog that attracts and beckons to me, because you are just a sincere person with boundless kindness and love to all. And I think that in life you love giving a lot of people who surround you and make them happy. And these feelings here were real and they can not be faked, I'm sure of it.

As far as I understood correctly, here are some early bloggers have offended you. And you were very upset and disappointed in these people. But apart from these people there are many others who respect you and see your sincerity and attention to all. So I ask you not to make hasty decisions. But in any case, I respect the decision that you find the correct and necessary to adopt for themselves.

I hope we do not say goodbye!
I wish you a sunny mood, a successful summer, the warm sea or ocean, as well as the sea of smiles and love! And most importantly to remain always in such a sincere and kind person!


babycarie   July 2nd, 2010 3:56 pm ET

OMG!! Did I actually read that it should be okay for Katherine to exploit Michael/his death because Katherine needs to look out for her other GROWN children and keep those other GROWN children in cash??!! I am stunned...and this is why MIchael was abused and used and exploited his entire life...being of that warped sense of entitlement within his family and those who surrounded him.
Wow...
Susan, have a wonderful weekend...thank God you come here to help maintain the stability and sanity!!

Love you!!


The Rose   July 2nd, 2010 4:30 pm ET

Daniel Verse 10: Many shall be purified and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

There is only one true hero and that is God, to divest himself of this earthly body and walk with Him in truth and love, he has most certainly found his greatest joy.

Grief cracks your heart into little pieces and it hurts so very much, and while I am finding it difficult to say goodbye, I must not forget that this was his destiny and part of the bigger plan that GOD has for all of us. "Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, But I'd have had to miss the dance". I will try and not dwell on his loss but rather celebrate his legacy of love, song, dance, philanthropy and humanity.

His musical talent was beyond extraordinary and when you revisit the words to his songs, poems and writings it becomes more and more evident that he was a gifted visionary and was no ordinary man or spirit by far, he was a once in a lifetime talent and we were blessed to witness his genius. You did it Michael, you studied the greats and became one of the greatest, you are a universal legend who achieved immortality.

When I hear a song, see a picture, I will stop and remember you fondly with a smile, with love and always, as a sincere, caring human being who wanted nothing more than to "Heal the World”.

He was a man we never fully understood, but chose to love anyway. Deep in my heart your memory will be kept forever. Rest In Peace.


LoveConquersAll   July 2nd, 2010 4:43 pm ET

@ Mr A

Please don't go...Not now.

Not after you have made my heart soar with your meaningful words. Honestly, you made my day with your post to me. You have left your footprints in my heart, my virtual friend.

Never mind "lighting up like a Christmas tree"...You simply "light up my Life" with your presence here. Nothing but pure LOVE for you.
Please don't stay away too long because we will miss you.

Love, Peace and Warm Hugs to you!!!!


LoveConquersAll   July 2nd, 2010 4:50 pm ET

I do agree with Mr. A about this blog being solely about Michael, the human being, The Man, the father, the son, the LOVE and the MESSAGE.

We must learn to respect each other and come to an understanding as to the differences in our beliefs, but also remember that we all share a common goal...Peace and LOVE ~THAT is the ultimate outcome.

Surely everyone is entitled to what they believe in, however, it is not right to judge, persuade, and ridicule anyone who doesn't share the same beliefs as you. THAT is not setting a good example of what Michael represented and stood for. It is NOT good for our world/planet as a whole. These types of attitudes start wars and conflict. We need to stop the bickering and fighting and it needs to stop now.

We need to LOVE and "Come Together" right now over MICHAEL.

It's time to start setting good examples for our children and our children's children. Love each other now before it is too late to turn back.

Please be good and respectful to ourselves and the earth...
"See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls". – Mother Teresa

LOVE and Peace to all!!!

Candy°°   July 2nd, 2010 5:40 pm ET

Some very nice posts here lately ...

@Mr. A ... very deep messages🙂 Big thank you for posting them!
However, your last one sadly reminds me of a certain "pattern" repeating here on the blog; strange, isn't it? the "others" also left when things reached a certain "pick" ... Sad ... but as anything in life "is a matter of choice" it is also your choice of doing so, and the choice of the others as of what to believe about this all.

But let us all better focus on the "real thing", and that is give our best to make this a better place b4 is to late; signs of the "dark forces" trying to take control are all over the place and increasing in intensity and "visibility" ...

Love & Peace to everyone

@Mr A
Good Evening my friend. I am sorry to see you leave the blog, and I do understand that all good things must come to a end. I do agree with you comment and fighting and bashing. This should not be this way at the end of the day WE all are still FANS of Michael. You are right again about Michael would not like what is happening here. The should be a place where we all come together even in disagree to agree and Respect each other no matter what you belief's may be. It has been a pleasure posting to you on the blog, and I for one hate to see you go, but I understand your feelings and that you must go. I wish you well and pray that all goes well for you. Hugs, Love & Blessings ...Letta

@ doubtingthomas2010

You stated:
"We don't REALLY know what is going on, we just know what the media is putting out there."
*************************************
I concur with that statement 100%. Everything is about money or rhetoric. The media advocate stories that are most likely exaggerated at best and confabulated at worst to sell their product. This is happening all over the US and most of the world. Anything you read, including this web site, one must sift through their cognitive process like straining seeds from the mass ....searching for what is seemingly accurate and can germinate.

Remember the old saying... You are what you eat.

Well I also apply that to.......

You are what you read!!!!!

Mr. A.

While we have had little interaction, when we did engage, it was always very pleasurable and enjoyable. You appear to be a kind and sensitive person.

May your life be filled with enlightenment and joy. May your heart experience love and fulfillment… and my your soul find ever ending peace!
A friend,

@ Pat Davis & Babycarie
Just wanted to say that I'm disgusted, too, about The View inviting evil Diane Demon, so-called journalist. Right away I thought "what would Whoopi say". Needless to say, I won't be watching The View. It sickens me, too, that she's made a career as a vulture to Michael.

Regarding Mrs. Katherine, I believe she might be presenting the unseen photos of Michael in her fight to erase the molestation lies. It seems that after Michael's passing that more of the public is suspicious of the media and open-minded in hearing the truth. Hopefully this is her reason.

@ GAI

My sweet and dear friend, may be this will be my last post to you, may be is time to say good bye and let you go, the most important thing for me is your happiness and if is better for you dont come back, that is fine, no matter if I miss you, anyway you are and will always be in my heart, never forget hearts beat together. I hope some day our paths cross again.
And this is specially for you.... from one of my favorite books:

"All men have the stars," he answered, "but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You– you alone– will have the stars as no one else has them–"
"What are you trying to say?"
"In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... you– only you– will have stars that can laugh!" And he laughed again. "And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure... and your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, 'Yes, the stars always make me laugh!' And they will think you are crazy...."

L.O.V.E and blessings

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

The free bird leaps
on the back of the win
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hillfor the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.
-– Maya Angelou

As I sing from my invisible cage........

Your beautiful name tells all! Such a gentle and kind soul. The words from you are filled with kindness and affirmations. What a thoughtful person you must be. Always helping through inspiring.

@Mr. A:

Maria C. wanted to correct her 6:42 PM post from tonight and say that she wanted to send you a big, giant warm hug and not a "bug". Ha ha! Anyway she just asked me to relay that message to you although I'm quite sure you knew what she meant.

I hope that you are not really permanently leaving the blog and that you will be back at some point. I really enjoy reading everything you write and so do many others here on the blog. You are a genuinely nice, sincere and loving person and it would be really wonderful if you could stay untiil November or whenever.

Maria C. told me she will be getting a new computer soon (not sure exactly when, but soon) and then she will be back on the blog. So, she will be back and I hope that you will too. I know that Maria holds you in her highest regard and thinks the world of you!

Love and Hugs from Maria C and myself.

Pat Davis- I'm still here and will be until they close down the blogs.lol

cris- So sorry to hear you have to get out of dodge and are on the run. That is no fun. Florida is a good place to run to. No state income taxes.rofl You could always move here where I am, Hubby said you would be welcome. No one could find you here. To get to our place you have to go over river, through the woods, past the boonies, past the sicks, through the deslolate waste and up the mountain way back in the trees to find us.rofl Love and hugs to you my friend.


Angel Pie   July 2nd, 2010 11:20 pm ET

@ Mr A –

Sorry that I missed you last night but I was "Lost In Cyberspace" but my computer has been giving me such trouble. O yes I thought you did a vanishing acting until I read your post at work.

Reading your post at work, I am deeply sadden that you have made a decision that you will no longer be posting here. You are a light on this blog. You are among a few on this blog in which one can feel the sincerity of one's words. I can sense your a genuine caring person. I do not understand what made you make that decision but I shall respect that. I will greatly miss you. Where ever you are just remember that there are folks here who will remember you. Even more now if I see a Christmas Tree I shall remember you. Michael left a legacy of Love around the world. You Mr A happens to be one of many of Michael's torches of LOVE that is being passed around. I wish you the best and I will miss you. Please take care , your a very special human being. God Bless –

Angel Pie

You deserve those words...no need to thank me for that my sweet friend. You feel like a child? Well, we can be two children playing outside🙂 Yes Mr. A, leaving is bittersweet because it's hard to leave but it's sweet because there's always a possibility of meeting again. Yes we'll meet again🙂 oh, yes I was under the weather but I'm all better now. Thanks for wondering dear. It was a combination of eating the wrong things, anxiety and allergies. Thank you for telling me to take care of myself....I will try to avoid those foods that start the heartburn or eat them less. I really like tomato sauce and chocolate though lol It is sad to see you leave here but I understand and I support your decision my friend. I will always be here whenever you need me. I promise. Thank you for always being the kind, beautiful person that you are. Love always, hugs and many blessings

Rhonda   July 3rd, 2010 5:30 am ET

@Mr. A

Saying goodbye
Was the hardest thing to do
I never thought I would
Especially not to you.

You always listened
And knew what to say
Knew when to give a hug
When I was having a bad day.

No one will ever take your place
I can always promise you this
It’s hard to find someone like you
So know you’ll always be missed

I was told that you waited until I left the room
before you would come in and say goodbye
Not sure what I did
I am so sorry that I missed your Goodbye
I am hoping it is not forever
True friends are so hard to find
And even harder to let go
But, we must all give the respect
Wishing you the best forever and always
Make sure to continue to drink your juice
and eat your fruit...
I will forever cherish our friendship
It has been such a pleasure to know you
I will forever hold you in my heart
You know where I am at

All My Love To You


Susan62509   July 3rd, 2010 7:23 am ET

Babycarie:
I wish you and your family a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Have fun, eat a lot, relax and enjoy family and friends.

I have a couple of questions that have me mystified and hope you can help me.

With Katherine selling her photo book of MJ and selling family film, why didn't she do that during the past 10 years prior to Michael passing away? That would have created income for her and decreased MJ's debts and stress.

With love, respect, peace and uniting, why is it okay to give opinions on some people, but not others? Diana Dimond gets bashed all the time on this blog. Strangers that post negative comments regarding MJ get bashed on this blog. Strangers get their information from the media and youtube videos and none of us has walked in their shoes or talked to them face to face. Is hypocracy occurring in front of us? What happened to "practice what you preach?"

The definition of the word opinion is: "A belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge. A generally held view." Under this definition you don't need facts to form an opinion.

With the upcoming 4th of July our country will celebrate it's democracy. It's wonderful to have freedom of speech and not have rules shoved down your throat like in a dictatorship.

Chris Brown, just like any other offender, will have to slowly go through the trials and tribulations of getting a good reputation back in the eyes of society. It will take time.


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 3rd, 2010 7:54 am ET

@Mr A
Hope that your weekend is a pleasant one. I know that I posted my good-byes to you and all, but as I was sitting here I was thinking, it a shame a person a nice as you are, kind , and a gentle heart for others has left the blog, I’m assuming due to that cruel demeaning comment allow to be posted on this blog is beyond me. It really upsets me and I assume others that you have decided to leave the blog. You will be missed much my friend. You always, have plenty to share with us on this blog and I sure we have a lot to sure with you. I truly, hope after a while and things have simmer down that you will once again grace us with your comments again. It is terrible hard to say good-bye to a person that has done nothing but shown loving kindness to everyone here on the blog as well as the “House of Love”, so in saying this I pray that this is not a final good-bye, frankly I do not believe in good-bye , but catch later down the road. (Smiles) Seriously you are being missed now and will continue to be missing until your return.
I also added a few quotes below hope you enjoy reading them as well.

Nothing is as strong as gentleness. Nothing is as gentle as real strength.

Good Friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there
.
Let loose of what you can’t control. Serenity will be yours.
Love, Hugs, & Many, Many Blessings your way. Letta

@Angie Pie
Hi, sorry I missed your present last evening rather busy getting ready for a family reunion Sat. With one hour and thirty mins sleep in the last twenty-four hours wow..I am tired but I still manage to post your daily word. This is somewhat a little different hope that you as well as others what I am posting
.
Slow Down
I slow down, simplify and enjoy life.
At any moment, I can restore a sense of peaceful presence in my life. I close my eyes and become aware of my thoughts. I notice my body. I notice my breath. I inhale deeply and exhale slowly.
As I take another breath, I consciously connect with Spirit within me and around me. I relax, knowing that in this instant, all is in perfect order.
Throughout the day, no matter how busy I become, I do this simple exercise. While driving to work, preparing for an important meeting, or getting ready to visit with family or friends, I take a moment to enjoy my oneness with Spirit. Choosing to consciously slow down and become fully present helps me enjoy every single moment of my life.
There is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves.–Ecclesiastes 3:12
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and Everyone on this blog. Letta


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 3rd, 2010 8:05 am ET

Since this is the Holiday Weekend I wanted to shared what Friendship means to me. We have a lot of people come and go in our lives but do we really think about what they mean to you? Well, I as others assume lost a friend here Friday, due to people being cruel and I felt that I needed to post this just to see if this is what Friendship means to you. Hope you enjoy, Love , Hugs, & Blessings, letta

Friend (s) like you happens once in a lifetime. The warmth of a friend’s presence brings joy to our hearts, sunlight to our souls, and pleasure to all of life. The more we nurture our friendships, the greater the happiness that comes our way. Friends – they’re kind to each other’s hopes. They cherish each other. To each of us friendship has a different meaning. For all of us it is a gift. Friendship is a living thing that lasts only as it is nourished with kindness, sympathy, and understanding. A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, Friend are made for caring and sharing. Friends make life a little sweeter. Friendship is the most constant, the most enduring, the most basic part of love.

lola   July 3rd, 2010 1:43 pm ET

Babycarie-
I don't know if you have children, but I am the mother of 5 that are grown and I can assure you, worrying about them and caring for them NEVER stops..........I don't think Katherine would do anything to tarnish Michael's memory/legacy in any way. But, to write a book or autograph belts to create more income is not a bad idea. You can say this is "exploitation", but I don't see it that way. It is a far cry from beating a young 10 year old child to earn the family income. They are totally different issues. A parent doesn't stop loving, caring, or helping their children when they turn 18. It is for life.

lola   July 3rd, 2010 2:03 pm ET

doubtingthomas-
ANY man that strikes a woman, whether he's black, white or purple with pink polka dots, should NEVER be forgiven. It is even worse if it is a person in the public eye, be it an entertainer, politician, athlete, etc. Very few people achieve this type of success and stature. They need to be held up to even higher standards or they should be knocked off their pedestals and replaced by those more deserving. Our society needs better role models than these pathetic losers. Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Michael Vick, etc. need to just take a hike and get lost. There are many more just as talented or more so waiting in line, that are not the undeserving, ungrateful spoiled brats as these guys. Why, as a society, do we set the bar so low?


lola   July 3rd, 2010 2:18 pm ET

Demand more from our public figures, because these are the people our children look up to and want to emulate! Don't be so easy to forgive and forget, when it is damaging to our children.

"with Katherine selling her photo book of MJ and selling family film, why didn't she do that during the past 10 years prior to Michael passing away? That would have created income for her and decreased MJ's debts and stress."

Hi Susan, pls pardon me to jump into your post. I want to share my thoughts here abt Katherine's book. As we know for the past 10 years the false allegation had been haunted MJ & ruined his career, worse, the public assumed he was guilty of the crime that he had never committed even he was acquitted. He did put some personal items for auction but withdrew later due to less attention after the trial. It was sad to say he fell into abyss especially in the US till the sold out 50 concerts in London last year. A book from his mother then would not help her financially, sadly to say it'd be a create some helps to her now. At the same time I'm glad Katherine was candidly stated that she needed money, I also read somewhere that she has 20 millions debts. Where can an 80 years old lady seek financial aids from? Besides, mourning her son, the stress of financial situation must be a huge burden on her shoulders.

I remembered once you wrote here that MJ had lived in an extremely extravagant life style, even he could fulfilled the concerts, the revenues couldn't have continued to support him, let alone his almost 500 millions debts. I couldn't agree more, let's all face the reality, he is more profitable than he was alive, the estate has already generated 1 billion since his tragic passing. I hope both MJ & Katherine will pay off their debts ASAP, same as the medias & the public realize MJ indeed was innocent and a man with great heart.

My love always extend to MJ's family and those who once bought happiness & loves to him in his life, and to all wonderful fans here, let's everyone embrace each other's indifference.

This is it! thank you for sharing the poem and video.the video was very hard to watch as it brought sadness to me.I have been to the zoo once myself,A poor young elephant was chained up you could see he wanted to be set free.He was in such distress he started picking up rocks with his trunk and throwing them at people.very sad it was.We humans have no right to put these animals in captivity,I personally have no desire to ever return to another zoo.I would rather see the animals roam free in their own habitat The birds soar the beautiful skies.

"LOVE would never be a promise of a rose garden unless it is showered with LIGHT of Faith, WATER of sincerity and AIR of passion".

Not a day goes by without missing Michael...
His sweet voice, his sweet smile, his gentle heart and soul, all guided by his passion. A passion for music but also passionate for a cause...a Greater Cause on a Global scale. His vision was to inspire and stir up that passion within all of us to make the world a better place.

We cannot forget to celebrate the message and the "man" behind it all. He has touched our hearts in more ways than he will ever know.
I'm sure we would all love to be able to "Call out his name and look over our shoulders" and see him there!!!

Sorry to go on and on today, just feeling a little down right now.
L.O.V.E and Peace to all!


Beverly - Chicago   July 3rd, 2010 4:16 pm ET

@Maria C:

It's ok. Anything for my sister! It's always a pleasure talking to you and hearing your Michael stories and theories. You are a true friend (I would write "true" in bold if I could, but can't on this blog) and I appreciate that more than you can know.

I hope you get your computer soon because you're missed here on the blog.

I love you, too! Have a great 4th of July weekend!

Love and hugs, Beverly

Hi Lola:

I agree with your post written at 2.03 p.m. You nailed it. Society does need to demand that the entertainment industry needs to be held to higher standards for our children's sake. Time to empty the trash, let these people go to rehab, then prove to society that they have changed for the better.

Your post at 1:43 p.m. If I may elaborate a bit........IMO, Katherine wouldn't deliberate try to ruin Michael's memory/legacy. The belts were being sold with the implication that MJ3 were behind the idea as their signatures were put on a single belt at a very high price. Since Katherine and Joe were behind this venture, some of us feel the children were being exploited. The belts could easily have been designed to reflect the Jackson 5 or Jackson Family for profit. With Katherine as legal guardian and not Joe, this is why her name is being brought up lately. As for her photo book of MJ, this was done with Mann who's millions were made in the pornographic industry. Is Mann taking advantage of Katherine's mourning and financial debt? When Mann was interviewed he stated Katherine was over $10 million in debt and she will make millions off these deals with him. Obviously he didn't care about her privacy to relay that info to the media. Did Mann sit down with Katherine and explain any monies she earns from her photo book will be garnished by Segye Times and she won't receive a dime, but Mann is guaranteed his share? If he didn't then he has manipulated her along with all of MJ's fans. I, as an MJ fan, can survive another day by not purchasing the photo book to line Mann's pockets.

Kenny Ortega and others were aware of the Encino home foreclosure. That house was transferred into MJ's name so Joe and Katherine could avoid losing it to Segye Times. My continuing question is WHY didn't Joe and/or Katherine sell belts, Michael photo's and family movies during the last 10 years to financially take the burden off Michael? Where was the caring or helping their children then?

Giving an opinion and debating what the media and youtube's publish
creates interesting conversation. It's up to each individual to believe what they want. Choice is freedom.

doubtingthomas2010   July 3rd, 2010 8:27 pm ET

lola- I have worked in the New York City Public school system, working with a lot of children of all ages and diversities. And some of them are known to be very violent- boys and girls. There have been times when these young men have gotten into situation with girls and vice versa. What are we to do with them??? Shun them, or show them a better way. As a previously stated I do not condone what he had done, but at the same time everyone needs to learn from their mistakes, and I hope he's doing that. Another thing, I NEVER put any celebrity or public figure on a pedestal. I admire MJ- but I'm aware that he is a man, that I'm pretty sure has made mistakes. It is very easy to shun someone-what about trying to help them out. Don't get me wrong, there are some people that will not change but I firmly believe if this society took a different approach to this situation because it affects couples of all ages, race, orientation that probably these situations won't happen. I knew someone who was murdered in this fashion and I believe if her assailant was given the proper help because he was known to be abusive her death would have been avoided. I have worked with the youth for many years and I can tell you we as a society need to get involved so certain things can be avoided. I for one, hope that this man can truly get the help he needs.


doubtingthomas2010   July 3rd, 2010 8:29 pm ET

lola- Another thing I will tell you IMO-parents need to stop looking to other such as figures on tv for their children to look up to. These are people and sometimes the image isn't real. The first teacher, role model a child has is their parent.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 3rd, 2010 10:20 pm ET

Regarding Domestic Violence – IMO, if a person is known to continually do this type of thing, then they obviously have a problem and need help and be willing to accept it and try and change. Some people can't and won't.

We can write Chris Brown off without giving him another chance, but is that the right thing to do.

We don't know the full story what lead up to that incident. Only the two parties involved know that. Not that I'm condoning it.

No-one should be violent towards another person at all even in this imperfect world.


butterfly   July 3rd, 2010 10:26 pm ET

@doubtingthomas2010
– Hi, I agree with your statement about the parent being the first teacher, a role model for a child. However, sadly not all parents are good role models and thus some children fall between the cracks. What is the solution? Perhaps more community loving support and caring. I remember as a young mother when other caring friends would give me advice and support with my children. I thank them to this day.


mary u from ohio   July 3rd, 2010 10:36 pm ET

I am deeply sadded what is happening.. now Mrs. Jackson is being questioned...

What needs to happen is Fans, People need to stop looking & Waiting for mike's return....


"Pixie Dust "   July 3rd, 2010 10:40 pm ET

Jessie from Auckland NZ, i agree with your post 100%,a person who continually commits domestic violence most certainly needs help,but not always willing to accept help,as they can't admit to their problem ,therefor the violence continues,until the victim seeks help..Thanks for sharing you thoughts on the subject.(Smiles) to you.


"Pixie Dust "   July 3rd, 2010 10:55 pm ET

butterfly,i agree with your post to doubtingthomas2010,there is support groups in ones communities that will gladly give advise and great support with raising a child. but, very few are willing to ask for help.There are so many young mothers and fathers that can barely care for themselves let alone a child.At times these children become a war of the state meaning put into foster care.These children end up having a very rough life,I do believe these are the poor children that fall through the cracks.(Smiles) to you.

doubtingthomas2010   July 3rd, 2010 11:14 pm ET

Pixie Dust- those that fall through the cracks can come from ANY economic background, believe me there are some people who by their actions one would assume they come from a horrible background when they have 2 caring parents at home that have good jobs. Yes there some that become wards of the state and there a plenty that don't and they commit the same crime. This issue needs to be looked as a problem ALL of society is dealing with, not only one particular group.

ibelieve25   July 4th, 2010 1:46 am ET

Again, you change your name, and post more lies. Show me your proof. Slander will get you no where. Let me point out the obvious, just what is a ten year old doing in a chat room anyway?! Hmmm... Sounds like someone wants attention. Show me screen shots, IP address, PROOF of what you say. I can post anything about another person, DOES not make it the truth. For anyone who patted this person on the back, I take it that you also felt Michael was guilty of the same things in 1993 and 2005. Do you see what this person is doing? Grow a brain and figure it out. Mr. A has a gentle Michael like personality, therefore he must be a child molester. Hmmmm.....destroy another innocent person's reputation without proof. What happened to innocent until PROVEN guilty.
Michael, I now completely understand what you have been through with baseless accusations. The lies that people tell, the lengths they will go to destroy you. Again, I am going through that pain with my dear, sweet friend Mr. A. By the way, I am not a ten year old, nor a twelve year old, have been speaking to Mr. A for months now. NOT once has he ever said anything that was not appropriate, nor out of the ordinary for an adult to say. Therefore be careful of wolves in sheep's clothing, spreading lies and rumors. The next person they may accuse is you. Happy July 4th.


ibelieve25   July 4th, 2010 1:47 am ET

@ Mr. A
Sending you love and hugs my friend, hold your head high. I know your heart, and there's not a thing wrong with it. See you soon.


Rhonda   July 4th, 2010 1:49 am ET

@MJJSupporter
I am not sure where you came from and I really don't care. But slander is a serious act. I am not sure about anyone else on this blog, but I will forever believe that you and your friends have made up some horrible lies and it goes to show that people can be so very cruel. I will forever stand up and defend Mr. A, because he is a very kind and gentle HUMAN being. He has a heart of gold and spirit that soars. So you can post all the lies and crap that you and your friends feel so to do...But I for one will never believe you......It is garbage, trash, just like the tabloids and the only thing you are doing is hurting another person by your lies the same thing that Michael had to go through. Does this make you feel good. Are you proud of what you do? Are you able to sleep at night knowing that you are hurting another soul? It is beyond me as to why people want to be so cruel. If you have nothing nice to say, then you shouldn't be saying nothing at all. Mr A is now, forever and always my friend and it really doesn't matter to me what you say because I believe him to be more than what you could ever knock him down to be. A very special person and a friend and that will never change. Get a grip and move on.
Much Love

Knowing this is

True-Too-You:

I wrote a long post to you earlier this evening thanking you for your perfect rhyme and insight regarding the "Mister Perfect" who left the blog. I'm happy I got the opportunity to read it before it was removed by the mod, along with MJJ Supporter comment and mine to you. Your comments and mine were not offensive in anyway to this blog. Does that reveal to you who is claiming to be Mister Perfect? It sure reveals itself to me. The person with the same tactic's as Michael Love? One leaves, then the other one appears. Hummm Too much time on its hands for moderating?


Susan62509   July 4th, 2010 3:07 am ET

rosegarden:

I'm sorry to you. I missed your 3:07 pm comment during my first read through. You make an excellent point between the years of 2005 and 2009. You are absolutely correct. Another way to view it is MJ's fan base would have purchased anything before or after his death. The people that felt MJ was guilty or wasn't a fan in the first place aren't going to purchased anything after his death either.

I appreciate your kindness in your intelligent comment. Thank you.


Lost Soul   July 4th, 2010 3:27 am ET

Hello my friends i hope that is ok for me to say that (Giggling)Thank you for your kind words they warm my heart you are all so dear.It seems to me and others that such unkind words are spoken in haste please be aware of the hurt you are causeing to posters.Remember words are the cause of war and famine a little word can grow
Keep love in your hearts Always


Susan62509   July 4th, 2010 3:54 am ET

rosegarden:

I forgot a question that you asked in your comment "where would an 80 year old lady seek financial aide from?

The estate is providing her $26,000 per month with possible increases every 6 months. Last month was a scheduled hearing for the probate court to review another increase, but it was continued to be rescheduled. Her home is safe because it is in the estate's name (MJ's) and the estate is making her house payment. Basically she won't be making any additional profit from her new business ventures. Segye Times will obtain those profits. Perhaps her goal is to get Segye paid off with the help of Joe and Jermaine. That will take a few years to accomplish. She is definitely feeling the same stress that Michael had been incurring.

MJJ supporter, I said "finally an intelligent post". I should have said "finally, an intelligent post about Mr. A", because there are other intelligent posts on the blog, namely Carie's and Susan's.

The love letters addressed to Mr. A on this Michael Jackson blog sicken me. It's no longer about Michael, it's about trying to get dates with twisted individuals .... And these are adults for God's sake!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!!!!! Excuse-me, but I think I need to to puke a little ....


This is it!   July 4th, 2010 10:32 am ET

Gently I ask,
what is the goal,
To spew only anger,
disrupts one's soul,
Gently I ask,
what is the goal,
With eyes of rage,
to deep to console,
Gently I ask,
what is the goal,
To fear the inner being,
tortures one's control,
Gently I ask,
what is the goal,
Peace, Love and Happiness,
shall make one whole,
Gently I ask....

Bless You All~


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 4th, 2010 10:33 am ET

@mjj supporter
Have you ever heard if you have nothing nice to say about an person then don’t say nothing? Well, I cannot and will not believe that post that you posted yesterday. Mr. A has never been unkind to me. This person that you prescribing are not the person I know, and I really do not believe that he is what you say. This is the problem that someone else went through lies, lies, and lies. Why, you insist on that he is all these people are beyond me. Why, do you insist on doing this, and discrediting someone’s name?
Mr. A is not that person to me. He has always, be kind and treat all with respect and a loving heart person. I do not believe what you posted and will not believe what you posted. This is the problem here already. Some of us do not know who to be kind or respectful of others, and I do not blame Mr. A for leaving with people always bashing and destroying ones name here. I do consider Mr. A my friend and will continue to believe in him and not what you posted here. As far as the other names you posted that suppose to be Aka’s of Mr. A, well I will not even entertain all that. Mr. A is my friend and as a friend I will back him 100 percent. I do not know anything of the others you mention and do not care to know them. My theory about all this if I was not present then I can’t entertain the thoughts, and to be honest neither should others unless you were actually present when all this suppose to had happen. As I stated before people forget how to respect each other and because he may had not agree or rub you the wrong way you come to the blog and try to destroy a person’s name, has very distasteful that is. Met or A if you are reading this post, please know that I am behind you 100 percent and do not let that nasty post. You would think after what Michael went through, that people would think before they post, and get better proof. Mr. A has never come off as interested in talking to kids when we chatted, at the chat room and everyone far as I know are adults not kids. So please take your lies elsewhere, we do not need it here.

@Angie Pie

Standing in the fullness of my true nature, I am free.
I am free. What a powerful statement! By speaking these three simple words, I create the space for true freedom in my life. I release the chains of the past and invite the possibilities of the future.

To be free is to no longer stand in a place of pain, anger and hurt but to move forward into peace, joy and happiness. It is as simple as choosing to accept my divine birthright of freedom rather than the restrictions I have accepted as truth.

I am a spiritual being, unhampered by the limitations of the world. I am free. No longer do I buy into a limited story of my life. Instead, I stand in the fullness of my true nature. I accept that in Spirit and in Truth, I am absolutely and unconditionally free.

If the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.–John 8:36

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Who's the most saintly one of all ....

No, this isn't Michael's message. Hypocrisy isn't Michael's message. Michael was no saint. Michael was a human being. Michael was angry at the injustices. Listen to his lyrics, listen to his Dangerous and History albums. Listen carefully.


Beverly - Chicago   July 4th, 2010 1:36 pm ET

Mr. A. has always conducted himself on the blog in the most respectful, kind, caring and polite manner possible. So, for anyone to make the insinuations they have made against him is completely unacceptable as they are totally untrue. Why does this type of slander happen to the people who deserve it the least?

Always remember to be kind and choose your words carefully because you never know how deeply your remarks can cut someone to the core. You may think that your casual posts or scathing accusations would have no profound effect, but I can assure you they do.

On a lighter note, I hope that everyone has a happy and safe Fourth Of July!


ibelieve25   July 4th, 2010 2:01 pm ET

@ Letta
You go girl.

Susan:
Let me see if I understand you correctly, you have never had any interaction with Mr. A, but seem to agree with someone Else's assessment? Mr. A has NEVER ever made any claims to be someone he is not, nor has he ever said one word that was unkind about anyone..even those who seem to attack him without proof. Not once has he ever done any of those things he has been accused of. I would hope that you Susan would never accuse someone of the awful things poor Michael went through without proof. Concrete proof, because as we all watched with MJ, even words are false when it comes to such wild accusations. Mr. A has NEVER asked for anyone's e-mail here on the blog, nor has he ever made any type of advances to a child in my experiences with him. Again, Susan, I speak from personal experience. The hateful person who keeps posting this crap has yet to show one shred of proof. I have asked them to do so on more than one occasion. This same person tracked me down in a chatroom to hurl these same accusations, and still offered no proof. I can tell you I know what is going on. This person has it in their sick mind Mr. A is Michael. Do you hear me? Yes, that's what is going on. They have tried for months now to get Mr. A to email them, to talk to them...begged for his attention. Since he has chosen to ignore them for his own reasons, they are behaving like a spoiled child. Point the finger, make wild stories up. That'll get his attention now won't it. Interestingly, doesn't it parallel what Michael suffered? When this person who has now changed their name 7 times to post these lies, (at least 7, could be more) could not get me to turn on Mr. A in that chat room, decided to take it up here on the blog. Susan, how would you feel if someone did this to a friend of yours that you know beyond a shadow of doubt, is a good person who has done nothing wrong? Just thought I would share my thoughts, please don't' think I am singling you out Susan, you and I have a mutual respect for each others opinion. I just wanted you to be presented with the facts first so that you can have a more informed choice. Thanks.

@ Rhonda
Breathe. Not worth getting all worked up for. I am sure that once many realize that you are defending Mr. A, you do so with the knowledge that he is not as claimed. They are just upset he comes into your chat and has not paid any attention to them. Wish people would make assumptions about others. Understand that they will see Michael in so many, because that's the impact he has made on us all. He has left this impression in our hearts, so that when we speak, sometimes we do sound like him. That doesn't make us fakes, or trying to play games. That is just proof that we listened to Michael in the way in which he cares for all humanity. I know I carry a tiny piece of him in my heart, but I also know that when it comes to bullies on a play ground, I can only take so much. This MJJSupporter is one of them.
Take care, and please, don't let this effect your health, keep that blood pressure down, will ya?

Letta,I agree with your post ,and I cannot comprehend the hatred and lies,spewed here? why??? Mr.A. has never harmed anyone on here ,can someone help me to understand wht is really the motivating factor here?
maybe we need to be more concerned with the ' mirror' ,and not trying to second guess why we are 'really ' here? It is silly ,and it needs to stop .thank you Letta,for expressing your self.,you are a beacon of Love ,and Light,the hate really needs to stop. Love Maria C.

@MJJSupporter
Please don't post that untrue stuff. If you really were an MJ supporter you wouldn't treat people like this. Please leave this beautiful soul alone!

@ibelieve25,Rhonda, Letta
I totally agree. This person is getting on my nerves going under different names writing tabloid like stuff!

@Maria C
I'm happy to see you back here. I'm sorry that you've been having a rough time with your computer. I hope you're doing well.

@SuzieQ

Love Letters, really?..Since when is words of kindness and friendships considered love letters.....So with everyone posting it has been wonderful knowing you and love to you is now considered love letters.
Amazing......

@Everyone
I can not believe with all the intelligents that is on this blog that everyone is going to automatically take one persons word as to what they think someone did. The people posting about Mr. A is really one person that has multiple names. They keep doing this and it makes it easier to slander people. It is a shame with everything that we all know that Michael had to go through and deal with, that we would automatically assume again that someone is telling the truth....It is all lies, just like the media and tabloids and again you all choose to believe it. I am a little concerened as to why someone would be letting there12 year old into a chat room or forum and not be there with them. So with me telling people that I miss them and that I love them and holding out my hand to you and so forth and so on, I should be considered a pedophile. That is really nice to know....Since when is showing kindness, courtesy, love and compassion a crime. If this is the case, then we are all guilty. I agree with ibelieve on where is the proof....Bring the proof if you are going to accuse.....screen shots, ip address, chat log, forum log whatever it is......Are just tell us what forum was he supposedly at when this occured. I do not understand how everyone gets that someone can be a pedophile in the virtual world...Are they gonna jump through the computer screen and grab you? How do you brush someones hair in the virtual world and most of us on here send virtual hugs and kisses so now are we all pedophiles. because we fit the profile.....If that is the cause then we all are. If you have ever read any of Mr A's post, you will be able to tell that he is no such thing. He is very kind, caring and he wants to spread the message that Michael has left. So now because he is trying to do so he is considered a pedophile. If you all believe that, then you all are just as bad as the ones that tried to hurt and harm Michael....If listening and watching Michael ever taught you anything, it should have been never believe what someone spreads or tells unless you witness it for yourself or it comes straight from them. Posting lies is not intelligent at all....What it is, is very hurtful and a shame that people are still getting treated the way Michael did.....Acting this way is not coming from any of Michael's supporter's or fans....

Doubtingthomas-
Children look up to people in the media not because parents want them to but because they are inundated with the media by movies, Tv and the internet. You sound young and not aware of what it is like raising children in today" world. Kids are often more influenced by their peers and the media than their parents....it shouldn't be, but it is often the case.

@susan62509

i do not know about Mr A
those words were not for him that day
i have only said hello once or twice
and he always seemed very nice
i dont know him and thats the truth
i will not judge him i have no proof
so please dont take my words and spread
cos about him those words were not said

i believe i will be there its all for lovelove is free


lola   July 4th, 2010 4:06 pm ET

Susan62503-
Nice to know we agree on so many issues.
Perhaps Katherine didn't try to sell a book, the belts, etc. when MJ was alive because there wasn't as much interest then as there is now – after MJ's death. This is the heartbreaking sad truth. There is much interest right now, not 2 years ago, and perhaps not 2 years from now. I see her as a strong woman taking control of her family and doing the best she can for ALL her family. God Bless her.


Susan62509   July 4th, 2010 4:08 pm ET

IMO, MJJ Supporter came to this blog to reveal that Mr. A was an imposter. Whether his/her individual statements were correct, none of us know. These are just typed words like tabloids, magazines, books and newspapers and as proven on the LKL blog for a year, some people choose what is factual and what isn't.

Many of you enjoy the writings of Mr. A, Michael LOVE, **mj**, etc. They each write in the context of what you want to hear and into your belief system. Their words are beautifully stated as if it's Michael writing directly to you. Remember Michael LOVE pretended to be MJ. Many of you jump on the bandwagon to praise these people thus providing your heartfelt love which trumps these people to become the blog God. They come to the blog for a short time then burn out and leave. What about you? Most of you have been here since Sept., others since last June. You are the dedicated people to Michael Jackson who don't leave at every whim. You are the people that endure and stand behind your beliefs for the love and justice for Michael. Your own writings are far superior to the Mr. A's, Michael LOVE's and **mj's**. Why not put yourself and your friends here on that pedestal rather than the strangers that pass through the night?

As to my personal opinion on Mr. A, and Michael LOVE I have observed a pattern. I believe they are both female and the same person. When Michael LOVE left this blog, Mr. A. appeared. They both type the same words. They threaten to contact CNN LKL when a blogger disputes them. They both managed to get the LKL mods to delete selected comments written by them. They both state they are leaving, wait for your praises to return and then they return.

Michael Jackson had far more goals in life, not just passing love around, but his charities and the world environment. Love won't keep us or our children alive but cleaning up and saving the environment will. Michael painted the front door, it's up to us to build the house. Michael told Kenny Ortega to build the house and he'll paint the front door. I took Michael's words and put them into an environmental context. Kudos to Michael. He was brilliant.


Susan62509   July 4th, 2010 4:18 pm ET

SusieQ:
Hi lady. It's good to see you again. You are always direct and to the point. I love that about you. Have you seen the pic of MJ flipping off Sony and him holding the sign "Sony Sucks"? He fought for what he believed was right and had the freedom of choice to do so. I was proud to see that he is real human being that gets angry and protests. He wasn't loving or holding out his hand to Sony that day. I wished he was still with us today. I miss him.


LoveConquersAll   July 4th, 2010 4:38 pm ET

Michael not only gave to charities in great monetary proportions, he also gave the gift of himself, which goes to show that it it not always about money. Sure, he earned tons of money because of his many talents but, beyond all of that...His heart was showcased when he would take time to visit orphanages and make sure children were provided for and were comforted. He WALKED his TALK. And he never uttered a word about it.

He showed Love and Compassion for all. Money simply cannot buy that. You can have all of the money and riches in the world, but it does not buy you happiness ~ Maybe for a while but it does not last. The true spirit of Giving of one's self is truly what it is all about. This is what makes Michael stand out above the rest. There is never enough to say about him. He could have just sent money to all of these organizations and did not have to ever take an active role or place himself there as a source of comfort and to mend broken hearts. It was all about giving back, being thankful and sharing what you have with the less fortunate. Michael saw the face of God in these children which is why he was so drawn to them. Such remarkable, not to mention, extraordinary qualities that make us all so proud to call ourselves fans. Now it is up to us to carry out his vision and his wishes...His Army of Love marches on.

Pardon the cliche'..."Money Can't Buy you LOVE" ~ But a sincere heart and soul can by showing a little kindness, empathy and compassion to one another. After all, it's all for Love...L.O.V.E.

Keep the Faith...L.O.V.E to all!


Susan62509   July 4th, 2010 4:50 pm ET

ibelieve25:

I realize you were angry when you wrote your comment in defense of your friend Mr. A. You made the following statement below:

For anyone who patted this person on the back, I take it that you also felt Michael was guilty of the same things in 1993 and 2005. Do you see what this person is doing? Grow a brain and figure it out. Mr. A has a gentle Michael like personality
****
I do not believe the acquisations MMJ Supporter listed regarding Mr. A. What I interpreted was the comparison of blogger alias' she listed and the revelation of being an imposter. There isn't any comparison between Michael Jackson and Mr. A, other than he/she TYPES like a gentle Michael personality. You, Maria C., True-too-you, Luda and many more write with a gentle personality also. You ladies are true fans and don't blow out in the wind when someone contests you. All of you don't insert the crying and hee hee's to emulate MJ.

We have seen and heard MJ for numerous years. We've heard his words from his mouth to our ears. Mr. A is just another typing blogger that is a virtual stranger vs someone we've actually seen or heard.

We had a 12 year old on this blog last Fall. His name was Jack. It was during the Michael LOVE timeframe.

Maria C.it is nice to see your post,you are missed as well.I to hope Mr.A returns to the blog,he just has to overlook those negative posts and only read the positive ones, There are a lot more to the positive side.There he will find he has a lot of friends and love for him.Maria I hope to see you return soon where you can blog on more of a regular basis.Sending many smiles your way.

@mjj supporter

The post that mysteriously disappeared, I read it but yesterday I just did not want to give him any comment because I was very evil and could tell a lot of unnecessary stuff. And now I've cooled ......
From where you have so much hatred??? You have insulted the man who personally to you and other bloggers do not create nothing wrong, Mr. A. absolutely nobody humiliated and insulted. He did not make any dramatic statements, but simply came here and talked with people who share his outlook. And to treat all very respectful and respectfully with all his sincerity and kindness that he showed here. And with your hand, this act seemed really low and not reasonable.
God bless you, let it gives you wisdom, intelligence and insight!


Lost Soul   July 4th, 2010 5:29 pm ET

I thought in my life i have just about experienced it all.Hate jealousy anger happiness sadness but to read this blog i am appalled.How some people have the audacity to instigate hate is beyond me why is this so where is the love' compassion.I have come to the concusion that some of the posters here may not have love in there life it makes me feel sad and disheartned to see this are planet is starved of love it starts with you .Yes you this may be my last post i can not continue to make my heart sad are journey has only just begun
Keep love in your hearts always

@ Mary Jane
Nothing wrong in forgiving ourselves for our mistakes – we are human -we are God's perfect creation – human but perfect in his design. He forgives us – we should be able to forgive ourselves. Not forgiving yourself is keeping you from being all that you can be – all that "HE" intended for you to become.

@Susan62509:

I'm just curious. Why do you believe that Mr. A and *Michael...L.O.V.E.* are actually a female posting on the blog. I would be interested to know how you reached that conclusion. I'm not being sarcastic; I'm really interested.


babycarie   July 4th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

SUZIE Q!!
How are you my love!!
OMG!! You are so RiGHT!! Michael was no wishy washy love child from some bad Woodstock movie!!! He was a man with backbone and attitude and anger and fire, and he showed this in his music and dance...I would not be a fan otherwise!!! I feel like we are in some warped church sometimes on these bloggys!! And the award for the most self righteous and Godly goes to...
Why the big fuss over some stranger when this blog is for MICHAEL JACKSON!!! Remember him??!! Who cares if this Mr. A leaves the blogs...seriously, how sad to beg a stranger to remain and, what? Blog about what??
I hope you are just delightful my lovely Suzie Q!!!!
You are the light in this abyss!!!!!

Hi Susan!!
Hope you had a wonderful 4th!
I do have a daughter and I would never exploit her to pay for her siblings or myself...that is wrong any way you look at it. And I certainly would never sell my personal albums or videos for any price. Katherine is making a lot of money per month, and if that is not enough maybe she should re-evaluate her spending habits. MJ3's money needs to be accounted for, and I am sure that was an unwanted surprise to those thinking the cash would flow freely. Michael was the ATM since the age of '5'!!! He lost out on his childhood! And now in death he remains the ATM...it just is wrong to use his life and memories to generate cash, especially for scum like those associated with Katherine.
Yes, the getting is good now, so that is where all these deals are coming from...sad. And why not during the last 10 years...because Michael was abandoned and the interest was not there...and during the '80's, Michael supplied enough cash so grubbing was unnecessary. My heart breaks for Katherine, but she really needs to think about what she is doing and how it will effect MJ3 and Michael's legacy.
And absolutely, opinions are what these blogs are intended for...opinions regarding the topic of Michael. Death being a fact is not up for opinion...and clearly Michael died or none of this garbage would be going on. And as Sada so very nicely put it, the Jackson's are fair game because they put themselves out there...those who feel differently can disregard and move on.
I wish Michael were here too...he loved fireworks!!!

Happy 4th!
Bless our troops who continue to fight for our freedom!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.

@Lost soul
Sorry for my typo, I wanted to write find in stead of fine lol, but english is not my first language.

I am truely sorry you are sad for some posts, I know kidness and love seem to be disappeared for some people here, but please dont pay attention to unpleasant people, there are still many of us with much love to give, please smile and if you dont have any smile just right now I am sending one from here!

A hug and L.O.V.E


"Pixie Dust "   July 4th, 2010 10:09 pm ET

Lost Soul,Your post at 5:29 pm.I totally understand what you are saying.I have never spoken to you until today.I have read your comments and really enjoyed them.I know there is the odd nasty posts but honestly there are a lot of positive posts.a lot of loving caring people that post on the blog.Please don't leave on account of the very few.There are ones here that would love to be your friend,so please try and reconsider.(Smiles) to you.

@Lost Soul July 4th, 2010 5:29 pm ET

Thank you for your touching post. It is sad, but there will always be people like this out there. One just has to feel pity on them and pray for them.

The biblical quote comes to mind.........if someone smites you on one cheek, give them the other cheek.

I know we are all not perfect and this is a fallen world, but we can strive towards it.


SuzieQ   July 4th, 2010 10:13 pm ET

Carie, Susan, so nice to see you here! Ouuuf, what a relief! I hope your 4th of July weekend was enjoyable. We celebrated Canada Day 3 days ago, on the 1st🙂.

Yes, I don't like it when Michael is portrayed as a meek individual, which he wasn't. He was an extremely passionate being, passionate about many things and not shy to express it either, like he did with Sony, and with Tom Sneddon in one of his songs. I hear anger, lots of anger, in many of his songs, particularly the ones that deal with injustices. Yes he had a lot of love, but it was the real deal and it was genuine. His love was for humanity and for justice, not for some stranger on a blog trying to pass himself as Michael.

And for those who are condemning me for agreeing with MJJ supporter, I do not know if all he/she said about Mr. A. is true or not, but there is no doubt in my mind that Mr. A. is posting under other names and no doubt in my mind that he and the imposter known as 'Michael LOVE' are one and the same. I cannot respect anyone who tries to pass themselves as Michael Jackson. They are not here for Michael, they're here for their own ego, and that is not respectable. Michael, unfortunately, is no longer with us.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 4th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

This blog is pretty tame and quite decent compared to some of the others I have come across.

But of course you will get the occasional ones out of the blue to try you.


"Pixie Dust "   July 4th, 2010 10:25 pm ET

Tatiana,that is so sweet,you send those smiles because remember (Smiles are sunshine and we must scatter them.)Hopefully Lost soul will receive your smile ,and it will brighten his day and warm his heart. (Smiles) to you.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 4th, 2010 10:33 pm ET

@LoveConquersAll July 4th, 2010 4:38 pm ET

Great comment.

I was just pondering on this about Michael too the other day and I believe Michael always had his heart in the right place. He showed it in his actions. He was and is a shining example.


SuzieQ   July 4th, 2010 10:33 pm ET

Sorry Carie, I can't pick a winner ... they're all so good!!!

Good night sweetie! Hope the little one doesn't wake you up too often during the night .... Sweet dreams ....


babycarie   July 4th, 2010 10:37 pm ET

Suzie Q!!!
You are acute and intelligent and if you saw something that leads you to the conclusion that Mr. A and Michael Love are one and the same I believe you!! I don't pay attention to those who come here for self fulfillment so I never read either's posts!!
And...I thought this blog was for MICHAEL JACKSON!!!
Are we in the wrong place?? as there seems to be more ado about nothing and nothing about Michael!!!
I love when Michael has that poster for Sony...with that choice word...no love sent with that!!! 🙂
Love to you my Suzie Q!!!
Happy belated Canada day!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Peace.


mary u from ohio   July 4th, 2010 10:39 pm ET

When a Stranger falls... you give Him/Her Your Hand....
When someone is sick.. you bring them food & comfort....
When someone is sad ... you bring them smiles.... Make them Laugh...
When there is the Love That Finally Shines... You did what We are sent out to do.....
Love & Peace...

It is Much easier for ones to water flowers then to give Love to One Another..
We need Love to Grow.. Just as Planet Need Water..


babycarie   July 4th, 2010 10:46 pm ET

OMG!! Of course I believe my Suzie Q!!!
Suzie is not caught up in the love fest and has a clear mind!!
Love you my Suzie Q!!
BC is wonderful...every 4 hours, but I've become used to it!
I wonder if Michael did the late night feedings?? Probably because he had difficulty sleeping. He really should be here...it sometimes just hits me and makes me feel so sad.
Anyhoo...love to you!
I am happy to see you light up this place!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Night!!


Tatiana   July 4th, 2010 10:50 pm ET

@ "Pixie Dust "
Thanks for your comment, you are a sweet person too. I hope my smile could warm lost soul heart and do his day britgher. I feel really sad when I see a kind person sad and the only thing I can do from here is to send a smile and a hug.

Smiles back to you and Love🙂

Lost Soul- Please do not leave it is nice to see someone post that can see the truth. There are two posters on here who are screaming about people attacking others. Well those two posters are the ones who attack others and not think twice about it. I have been attacked by these two people for the last 4 months more times than i can count. Now that one of their group is on the receiving end it is a bad thing to do. Talk about a double standard. I could have a field day with how they claim to be perfec but I won't. I vowed to make a change and I am keeping to it.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 4th, 2010 11:05 pm ET

Here are some famous Charlie Chaplin (Greatest Comedian In The World) quotes.........

"A day without laughter is a day wasted.

A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.

Actors search for rejection. If they don't get it they reject themselves.

Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference.

Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people.

Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.

I am at peace with God. My conflict is with Man.

I am for people. I can't help it."

I can see now why Michael loved Charlie Chaplin. I am rediscovering him myself and after watching the "Smile" video with the old black and white clips of Charlie Chaplin on it..........I have never laughed so much in a long time. He is like a tonic.

Taken fom the "Smile" song written by Charlie Chaplin........

"That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life it's still worthwhile
If you just smile"

Yes, and we do need to smile more. Just like the beautiful Sunflower.


"Pixie Dust "   July 4th, 2010 11:11 pm ET

Jessie from Auckland NZ,I agree with your comment 100% Michael most certainly had his heart in the right place.A man with a heart of gold He was definitely a shining example to all.(Smiles) to you..


Marguerite   July 4th, 2010 11:19 pm ET

Apathy and evil. The two work hand in hand. They are the same, really.... Evil wills it. Apathy allows it. Evil hates the innocent and the defenseless most of all. Apathy doesn't care as long as it's not personally inconvenienced.
JAKE THOENE, Shaiton's Fire

The small man thinks that small acts of goodness are of no benefit, and does not do them; and that small deeds of evil do no harm, and does not refrain from them. Hence, his wickedness becomes so great that it cannot be concealed, and his guilt so great that it cannot be pardoned.
CONFUCIUS, The Wisdom of Confucius

From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate. ~ Socrates

~ The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less. ~ Eldridge Cleaver

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us. ~ Herman Hesse

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us. ~ Herman Hesse

One does not hate as long as one has a low esteem of someone, but only when one esteems him as an equal or a superior. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Few people can be happy unless they hate some other person, nation, or creed ~ Bertrand Russel

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr

When is the hate and attacking going to end? Is it ever going to end? Enough is enough. If you can't say something nice then leave, hate has no place here on the blogs.

Through all of his personal heartache, Michael stayed strong and always had a positive attitude toward life.

"In a world filled with hate. we must still dare to hope...
In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort...
In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream...
And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe".
~ MICHAEL JACKSON

It is not up to us to judge others or their motives, if any. We are all entitled to believe what we want to believe in. Live and Let Live".
God is the judge. No one is better than anyone else. We are all here for one purpose...to "come together" over Michael ~ Not to ridicule each other and our beliefs if they are not like our own. To each, his own. Keep an open heart and an open mind...It can be a very interesting learning experience.

L.O.V.E, Respect and show a little Compassion for each other as hard as it may be sometimes...That's all.

I believe in a BETTER WORLD...This cannot be attained without Unity and Harmony amongst one another.

Good Night and Much L.O.V.E to ALL!

Mary-Jane   July 5th, 2010 12:16 am ET

Wishing everyone a joyous July 4th. For me this holiday goes deeper than just Independence.... It is also remembrance of those who died to set this country free. I am deeply indebted to those men and women who fought for our independence....

@babycarie
I realize that this is the internet and just a blog...I am also sure that he does have friends other than on the internet. But people do meet and become very good friends from the internet and some not so much. There have been a few who have actually met up and are now outside virtual friends. Like I said we have had a differences and I know that if he chooses to leave the blog it is his choice. I have made some very good friends on this blog and I have made some enemies as you can see. But it doesn't matter to me if it is virtual or real world, no one deserves the kind of treatment that Mr A is getting here or anywhere else. I do realize that there is a lot of people that get slander on here and the real world, and I am not saying they deserve it either. I will always continue to take up for Mr. A regardless of what anyone else thinks of him because I know it to be a lie. I would do the same for you as well as any of the others that I have met on here. As far as the love fest I have no idea. Have I posted poems on here, yes I have and it is not to get a date or anything else. They are posted because of the love that they have in them and it is how I felt at the time. And regardless of this just being virtual I do have my friends on here and it is still wrong that some people have posted something so nasty and cruel about anyone. As I have stated many times, as we are all fans of Michael's, UNTIED WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS, DIVIDED WE FALL and I personally do not want to see Michael's love for anyone fall and I do not want to see any fan be treated the way Mr. A has been treated. He is not on here as anyone else but himself and he deserves better than what he is getting. I do hope that things are going well with you and baby. Please give her my love, big hug and kiss.
Much Love To You

@Simon
You my friend I am speechless
You are a wise person and see many things

MJJ Supporter posts a comment. The Mr. A. fans come to his defense. Show us the proof. MJJ Supporter is bashed by the loving, respectful, hold out your hand, unity movement pouring out their opinions in what they believe is true.

Simon Says posts a comment. Bashes Marg, then Simon says "to all be kind." Huh??? Like MJJ Supporter, Simon gives his/her opinion in what he/she believes is true. Show us the proof. If proof was demanded from MJJ Supporter the same is required from Simon as well.

Opinion and fact are two different things as we all know. When reading comments to follow MJ's teachings of love, peace and respect and to spread it around, then reversing your beliefs to bash another person, doesn't make sense to me. It appears hypocritical. To defend Mr. A without Mr. A defending himself is interesting to say the least. MJ certainly defended himself throughout the years.

Bottom line, we all have our opinions whether they are positive or negative is interpreted by the eyes/ears of your personal belief system. To debate an opinion should be based on the subject matter only and not the person.

Everyone has a right to their opinion. Whatever stance you take in your belief system make sure you practice what you preach. Don't overly broadcast if you can't support it. My opinion only.

Hello my friend, hope that you enjoyed your 4th July weekend time off from work. I know that you are glad to be back at work now?(LOL) Here, is a little something to start your day.

Let Christ's beauty shine throught me, for all the whole word to see.

All life is precious, and intimately interlinked with our own.

A man or woman is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him/her, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes him/her self helpfully to all life that is in need of help.

We cannot command Nature except by obeying her.
– Francis Bacon

The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others.

A good word is an easy obligation; but not to speak ill requires only our silence; which costs us nothing.
John Tillotson

@Mr. A
Hello my good friend. Hope that you have a lovely weekend and now rested as well. I truly hope that all is well since I am pretty sure that you are keeping up with the post and has read the good, as well as the bad things said pertaining to you. As, you know my friend that there are many that feelings differently about those slandering comments, and is here for you and will stand by you, hahahahaha I happen to be one of them. So keep your head up and stay strong because we are here for you. I found a quote that I wanted to post to you here it goes.
Called Dealing with people:
A good deed is never lost: he who sows courtesy reaps friendship; and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Do not think that what is hard for thee to master is impossible for a man; but if a thing is possible and proper to man, deem it attainable by thee. (Marcus Aurelius)

Our greatest glory consists in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. (Oliver Goldsmith)

Hope that you like it. When I read it I thought about you. Smiles. Hugs, Love & many Blessings Letta (hope that even though you are not posting that you are still reading the blog.)

It is interesting to notice how some minds seem almost to create themselves, springing up under every disadvantage, and working their solitary but irresistible way through a thousand obstacles.

Truth will always prevail,
It will never ever fail,
Through good and bad,
It will always stand.

A power that is never surpassed ever,
Truth, that anybody let down never,
This is the power that forever lasts,
Truth serves those who serves it most.

The dispenser of truth rules the world,
Even in a world where Satan has hold.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 6th, 2010 8:29 am ET

Marguerite – Thank you for this quote of MJ's.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” Michael Jackson quote
----

I had two incidents of rude drivers while out driving on the city roads today, and admittedly there was a bit of rage from me towards them, with me tooting my horn back to let them know I was not too happy with what they were doing. One male gave me the fingers.

Afterwards it just left me feeling what the hell is the world coming to, when people cannot even show common courtesy on the roads. Just seems to be all me, me, me. Get out of my way kind of thing.

Reading this quote of Michael's has lifted my spirits some as I was starting to lose a bit of hope. It helps restores one's faith in humanity and reminds one not to give up on things, even though bad things may happen and discourage you. Never give up hope, to continue to persevere.

“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”
“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

"Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us" ~ Martin Luther

"Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see" ~ Martin Luther

letta(IbeLIEve)   July 6th, 2010 2:05 pm ET

I am a powerful, confident child of God.
Taking a moment to measure my level of self-confidence, I ask myself several important questions: How do I carry myself? Do I have good posture? Do I have a positive self-image? Do I communicate clearly to others? Am I able to say "no" when necessary? Am I living authentically? The answers give me a sense of my level of confidence.

I then turn to God in prayer, allowing God's presence to illumine my mind and heart. In the silence, I reconnect with the essence of my being. Newfound energy surges within me, and my heart fills with optimism.

Prayer readies me for any challenge or adventure. I meet the day ahead with ease and grace. My words, actions and manner convey the power of the Christ at work within me.

Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward.–Hebrews 10:35


Sybil-Sally   July 6th, 2010 2:27 pm ET

Dear Mr. A Rhonda LoveConquersAll

I think you are all the same person. Your writing format mirrors each other. This is a sociopathic feature- no regard or concern for other people you fool, manipulate or hurt. You fear no consequences to your phoney l.o.v.e. behavior. You should be ashamed. Mr. Michael Jackson would not be proud to call you fans. You encourage others to believe Mr. Michael Jackson is a liar, a fake and a fraud. That is not a fan, that is sociopath; brainwashing others to sway to your beliefs. You can post all the Michael Jackson quotes, philosopher quotes and even quote the Bible if you so choose. Why don't you start pulling some of your own quotes and feelings in that little bag of wishes you have been hanging on to since 2009 25, June.
Then you blog to yourself as if you are speaking to another person. How sad. I am sorry you are so lonely. What is even more depressing is that you answer your own posts.


babycarie   July 6th, 2010 3:36 pm ET

Bless your heart...you think this blog is for Michael Jackson...I think we all know it has not been for MIchael Jackson in a very long time. Sadly this place has become a lost cause...just read and choke down the vomit.
No one here seems to remember what these blogs are for...they just need this place to fill some void in their lives.
Susan, I applaud your efforts to rationalize...I for one hear every word and really appreciate your infinite wisdom!!!!

How about that Janet performance???!!! WOW!!!

alice   July 6th, 2010 3:56 pm ET

Most people compare Michael to Elvis, however, I see more similarities between Michael and John Lennon. Both had difficult childhoods, both were poets and musical geniuses, both had a strong social conscience and tried to make a difference in the world. Just compare Lennon's "Imagine" to Michael's "Heal The World"- a similar message: to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, both got into the use of drugs and both were killed at the hands of another. Both legends had a tremendous impact on culture and music of the 20th century.


Mary-Jane   July 6th, 2010 4:09 pm ET

@Brownie

Thank you for your considerate and thoughtful post. If I subscribed to a god, I guess life would be simpler and we could excuse our behaviors and place the responsibility on the higher source “God” However, my position is….. I take full responsibility for my behaviors as I have no such belief system. I do not look for an easy way out …. I am in charge of my decisions and choices in life. I will not blame anyone, not my parents, others or a “God” if I believed in it. This is not a popular view, but it is mine……..


Mary-Jane   July 6th, 2010 4:35 pm ET

@Letta

You stated: “It is so wrong for someone to post something so horrible and slandering against another without knowing them personally”

And that is exactly what the ‘tasteless tabloid trash’ do on a daily basis. I personally would like to see a limit on what can be published while not violating our first amendment rights.

Scanning the entire spectrum outside of Michael Jackson, I fully believe the majority of American people in this country accommodate and adopt values and beliefs which are created through a method of indoctrination and inculcation, not original thought. Granted, we all must at some level join societal norms like stopping at a red light… however, where does this end? Are we not just sheeple?


Rock With You Horsegirl   July 6th, 2010 5:06 pm ET

Please all of you try not to get to much involved with theories of how Michael died because it will tear you apart. After MJ's death, there were reports of people including fans committing suicide. If you are thinking about suicidal thoughts, ask yourself this question, where will your soul spend eternity? Think positive thoughts to keep the good memories of MJ alive. As the Bible says, "Think on the things that are of good report."

Michael suffered from years of media abuse...give it a rest that anything a blogger was subjected to even comes close!!
Get real....PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

@Sybil-Sally
Hello there. I'm sorry but you're mistaken. My friends are each under their own names. Also, I've never seen them try to sway people to their beliefs. How would you know who Michael would be proud of? He loves all of his fans. I think Michael would be very proud to call my wonderful friends fans. They're beautiful souls.


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 5:20 pm ET

@ Sybil-Sally

Not sure if I want to even dignify your post with an answer but I will. For your information, I just recently started blogging here and I am NOT trying to "sway" anyone to any beliefs. Just sharing thoughts and and love because that's truly what it is all about. My comments are made here whether you wish to read them or not. If not, then let it be. By the way, I can only speak for myself.

As far as Rhonda and Mr. A are concerned, they have shown nothing but kindness towards me and everyone on this blog. Why do you waste your time "judging others" when you should look at yourself first.

I am only one person who only posts when I can find the time since I do care for my elderly mother. JUDGE that, for yourself. Thank you.

L.O.V.E to all!!!!


Lois48   July 6th, 2010 5:52 pm ET

Unbelievable! – people who profess to keep it to blogging about Michael have got to look in their own mirror because they are certainly not doing what they are preaching, making snide remarks about others on the blogs and then to insinuate Rhonda is Mr. A and LoveConquersAll is got to be the stupidest, most ridiculous post I have ever read to date. This sybil person obviously has a split or several personalities herself to even think such a thing. I feel bad because I believe this person really has mental problems and needs to seek help from a professional.

Some individuals on the LKL blog take things just a little too literal and use this forum to intimidate and bully without facing consequences. Maybe because they are showing their real colours, low self-esteem and other negative factors that have affected their lives. Why do you even care what other's post if you don't believe it?

I think people need to rethink why they are really here. Are you here just to bully and post stupid comments to people who are obviously very caring and forthright real people. This is not a child's playground, so either grow up or move on to a blog that is more suitable for your age because you certainly don't act like adults.


The Rose   July 6th, 2010 6:38 pm ET

His smiling way and pleasant face
Are such a pleasure to recall,
He had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.
Some day we hope to meet him,
Some day, we know not when,
To clasp his hand in the better land,
Never to part again.

If you need me, call and I will come,
Though you cannot see or touch me,
I will be near and if you listen with your heart,
You will hear all my love around you soft and clear.

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


"Pixie Dust "   July 6th, 2010 6:40 pm ET

Mary-Jane   July 6th, 2010 7:50 pm ET

@ Carie

You have mentioned your husband is working in cleaning up the gulf oil leak. I was wondering if you could provide me with any information pertaining to volunteering. Time is of the essence and all the life in that biosphere is dying a horrific death. I am on several volunteer lists; WWF and NWF to gather and clean up the animals. Neither are taking volunteers at this moment in time and the conditions are becoming worse. I just do not want to fly there and sit in a hotel or I would leave today. The area involving clean-up seems to be closed off to the public. I would be willing to post my email addy; however, I do not think CNN would allow for that. I have already exhausted all my sources.

The Oil leak is a tragedy, but not allowing 100,000 American volunteers to actively partake in clean-up efforts is a catastrophe!!! Anything you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks
Oh yes, Michael was a humanitarian and I believe he would be horrified at this situation too….. Thanks


Rhonda   July 6th, 2010 8:01 pm ET

@
Simon Says proof is on the blog...just read it....

As far as being Mr. A fans....we are not his fans, we are his friends, there is a difference....I am not bashing anyone.....And MJJSupporter didnt state just an opinion, it was an outright accusation...there is a difference....As far as me being Mr. A or LoveConquersAll, thank you so much for the compliment.....Two of the most kindest souls on the blog and I get to be compared to them.....Wow, I am honored......But, the last time I checked, I was a female.....have been for quite some years now....so unless I went into a coma and had some kind of operation, I am still a woman and I am all woman thank you.....I am sure Michael can see who his fans or, because the LOVE as you so call it, is exactly what Michael was about. Love for the planet, the children and every person that has ever suffered....so yes I am sure he is proud......And I am well aware of the abuse that Michael took for all those years.....But it doesn't matter if it is years, months, weeks, or just days.....NO ONE deserves to be slandered period.....SO PLEASE to you.......I know that Michael stood up for himself....He always held his head high....Mr. A has also stood up for himself and look at where it has gotten him.....He is still being slandered......Michael was abused more than any star ever could have been and it was very wrong then and it is very wrong now....For him and for anyone else period....

Rock With You Horsegirl: Part of your comment below:

"Please all of you try not to get to much involved with theories of how Michael died because it will tear you apart".
*************************
Personally, I am torn apart because Michael died. I'm not torn apart in how he died. I want justice to be served to the individual(s) that caused this unnecessary death. When the trial begins the truth of how he died will be unveiled and hopefully the powers of justice will prevail as written. CM was grossly negligent confirmed by the medical professionals and the Calif. Medical Board.

@Maura:

Hi Maura, I'm doing well and it's nice to hear from you. I'm just trying to figure out what is going on here on the blog. All of a sudden it seems like some people think that a few of the posters are the same person. Well, that would be a really good joke on all of us if that were true! I have my own personal theories about things on the blog, but they're just my own observations. The only thing that I do believe for absolutely sure is that Michael is still alive. Regardless of who posts on the blog or who they really are.

I hope you are enjoying the summer!

@LoveConquersAll

@Mr. A
Please smile, no frowning and certainly no pacing back and forth....Grab a nice glass of fresh juice and just take a deep breath...Even though you are not here posting.....be sure that you are still here with us and we are here with you.....

Much Love


SuzieQ   July 6th, 2010 8:17 pm ET

@Alice, great, perceptive post. I agree with every word you said, and I dislike comparing Michael to Elvis. Comparing him to John Lennon is much more to the point .... should I add "imo" lol.... no, I think this is not an opinion, it's a fact. And as Carie said, THANK You for a post ABOUT Michael Jackson!

Lois, I cannot believe your 5:52 post made it on this blog!!! The undertone is the most abusive I have seen so far on this blog. Perhaps it's time to look in that mirror (?)


Marguerite   July 6th, 2010 8:22 pm ET

Susan62509- Thank you!!!! It is nice to see someone saying enough is enough. Again thank you.

Jessie from Auckland NZ- Thank you and you are very welcome!!! So sorry to hear you had a bad day. It made my day to read the quote I posted lifted your spirits. I hope you are feeling better now.

Lois48-- There are new posters who who sound like older posters here. Let's face it there are not any posters posting for a long time then all of a sudden new posters are posting an they mainly talk to certain people. Lois I have posted to one of them LoveConquersAll and was ignored and I was being nice. Another thing new posters do not take sides because they are new which is something to think on and consider. This is just my opinion.


SuzieQ   July 6th, 2010 8:25 pm ET

Carie, hello my love. I don't know about that Janet performance. I haven't seen it. To be honest, I'm not what you might call a "Janet fan". Never been. I don't think I can name a song by Janet (except, perhaps Scream ... LOL). As I said before, I am a "Jackson One" kinda person... and although I felt a lot of sympathy for the little sis when Michael died, I was rather disgusted when she spoke about his death publicly for the first time on the day her new album was launched ... anyways, what about that performance? I had seen performances by Janet in the past and found them too ... racy (?) for my taste.... give me Michael over Janet any day ... I don't know if you're a fan of Janet. If you are, sorry!🙂


Susan62509   July 6th, 2010 8:34 pm ET

Hi Babycarie:
I didn't see Janet at the Essence Music Festival. I'll try to locate a video so I can comment back to you.

Carie, am I an unfit mother, have a police record, been in a psycho ward, a famous lawyer, anchor the west coast Red Cross, 25 years old or stripper? lol No one knows, because all I do is type words in a blog room. You know the point I'm trying to make because of your wisdom. Any blogger from the categories that I have listed can be the background of any person on a blog. I can form my opinion on words written, but I certainly do not know the real true background of anyone writing on a blog. It's safer to be on defense and let the buyer beware.

A prime example of the point I'm trying to make is earlier this year when two bloggers (one which still blogs everyday and the other left a month ago) wishing death upon you and your unborn child. Your husband was so upset. I'll never forget that time period as it proves the LOVE conveyed on this blog is not always what is represented in their soul.

Take care gurl. We'll talk soon.


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

@ Marguerite

I am so sorry that you feel that I have ignored you. I did reply to you at least once where I mentioned that I enjoyed your post. I also included you on July 4th, 2010 2:45 pm ET wishing you a Happy 4th of July. I would never ignore anyone. I just want to reach out as a friend.
Much Love to you!


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

@ Maura

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am feeling really discouraged but not to the point where I am ready to leave. I do enjoy posting on this blog and I have made such nice friends. Love to you!

@ Lois 48

Thank you for standing by me. My intentions are all good, believe me.
You are so kind and your words really mean a lot to me.
Much Love to you!

@ Rhonda

I am holding on to your hand as tight as I can...Many thanks, my friend.

By the way, I am a female and I started posting here on June 25, 2009. That day I felt compelled to join the blog after being someone who would visit and just read all of the posts for the past year. I just wanted to join in and spread love and goodness like everyone else. I am no better and certainly no greater, than anyone else. We all share a common bond and that is, OUR LOVE FOR MICHAEL. That's all.

Thank you everyone...L.O.V.E and Peace to all !


babycarie   July 6th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

SUZIE Q!!!
OMG!! 'Racy' is a huge understatement!! Janet really went way too far with this one, IMO!!! 🙂
It was about as raunchy as it gets!! A lot of S&M that is almost x-rated!! I am a One Jackson woman too!!! I am not a fan of Janet and agree about her using Michael's death to pimp her CD, much like she did with that new Tyler Perry movie...ugh!! Her performance is beyond words!
I saw that lois post...please!! And the love is what, selective??? The peace is what, intermittent?? The finger pointing is a spasm??? Seriously!!!!
Love you my Suzie Q!!

Susan!!!
Oh, you are so in tune with all that goes on here! I ignore and bypass most so I am sometimes oblivious...maybe that's why I can stomach coming back!!! I remember getting upset a couple times about stuff on these blogs but realize it is silly to get upset about that nonsense because the human condition does not change but gets even more hateful in the evil of the virtual world!! Cuz this is THIRILLER!!! 🙂


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

@ Everyone

Sorry I meant "I started posting on June 25, 2010 – NOT 2009.


Sybil-Sally   July 6th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

Dear Maura-
Thank you for inquiring within. I have observed this blog for months. I take mental notes and lots of them. You are a nice person, I appreciate your commentary on this matter.

Dear Lois- Lois- I know you are a believer, that is my understanding as to what people who believe Mr. Michael Jackson is still alive referrs to themselves. You sound like you have much anger inside of you. That is a shame. You should really let go of that. Maybe a long walk on the beach or a nice match in tennis. I do not have split personalities; Rhonda/Mr.A/and others have them. I observe very carefully and have caught these aforementioned bloggers making ciritical errors in their blog timing, and few have caught it. From what I recall reading the blogs much earlier after Michael died you work in the field of law, correct? I'm surprised that these kind of mistakes slipped right past you. Thank God you are not a detective. lol. Lois, you should really get over this idea of people having to provide proof that Michael died. I suppose your law firm loses cases by the handfuls because clearly you require something more than proof, you require the body. I hope you are not in criminal law, something like home foreclosure or tax evasion or something of that nature I gather would suit you better. Good luck in all your endevors. But blogging isn't one of them.

Dear Rhonda-
Yes it is a wild ride. You will only need one seatbelt though.


Marguerite   July 6th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

LoveConquersAll - I'm tryin to cause trouble or problems. I just stated the facts. I posted to you when you first started posting and who knows if the posts are still on the blogs now or not.lol When you ignored my posts and posted only to certain posters. I just sat back and watched what was going on and happening. Over the last 4 months I have been attacked and bashed by the very people you say are nice and call friends. Two days ago a truce was called between us and now they are backing up simon says for what this person posted. By the way just a bit of info Simon Says post was deleted 24 hours ago and these friends of yours are talking about the post as if they just read it as well as being still on the blog which it is not. You think they would take the hint from the mods deleting it.......hmmmm


"Pixie Dust "   July 6th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Marguerite, hope you had a wonderful day,sending many smiles your way.


simon says   July 6th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

Sybil-Sally
Sybil-Silly
Look around you
It ain't pretty
Change your name
I know your game
Point the blame
When its your real shame.
Attacking others is all you do
Why can't love be good enough for you
Mr. A is a man I can see
Not a woman as you claim to be
LCA is not the same
Rhonda uses just her name
Quit trying to shift the blame
Your name is fitting
The games you play sickening

Rhonda don't fret
Don't worry yourself
I do know its the real you
Take care Mama Bird
Much love to you.


Marguerite   July 6th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

LoverConquersAll- That first sentence is suppose to read I'm not trying to cause trouble and problems.


Mr A   July 6th, 2010 10:16 pm ET

Wait...what are you all doing? Why the finger pointing, the name calling, the silly accusations? This is not adult behavior, this is adolescent behavior. This is not Love...it's hate and it is wrong.I had hoped that eventually all this would blow over and that would be the end of it, it's all nonsense really. I didn't want to feed the fire, add to the negative atmosphere of the blog right now. Let me set the record straight once and for all. This is really getting out of hand, out of control. I could really care less what you say or think of me but please don't bring innocents into this. It is evil, it is cruel, it is wrong. I am floored...speechless...

I would like to kindly thank all who came to my defense...thank you, all of you from the bottom of my heart. I am forever grateful to all of you. I think of all of you daily. I miss all of you. You are all good, decent people and wonderful friends. What can I say? Thank you for everything...for the love, the friendship, and the support. You know me, you know my heart and that is beautiful. I can truly say that I love all of you.

Carie, you are very correct when you say this is a "Michael Jackson" blog, yes it is. Thank you for saying this. This is not a blog about ME, my personal life ,or what I do or don't do in my free time. It has always been about Michael, I have stood by that reality from the very beginning. I would hope and pray that you all continue to do the same.

@My accusers

I have been accused of being a woman, a terrible name that I will not repeat, michaellove and an imposter all in a matter of days. Now I'm Rhonda and L.C.A. as well? Forgive me but those are some of the most ridiculous and absurd claims I've heard in quite awhile....and believe me I've heard some pretty strange things in my day. Where is all of this coming from? Please don't point fingers or accuse others unless you have concrete proof/evidence and or are 100% sure that the information you're sharing is absolutely, completely, without a doubt accurate. It is not nice to falsely accuse others, it isn't nice to make premature assesments or judgments of others...it is never good or wise to defame someone's character...in both a legal and moral sense. I have only tried to bring love, peace and unity here. I have always treated everyone with the uptmost respect. I have never been inapropriate or provacative in anyway. I am most certainly not any of those things that have been said about me...I have NEVER...not once stated,claimed or insinuated that I'm Michael Jackson...because I AM NOT. IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH?

I am not a woman. So, because I genuinely love and care for all and become overly emotional at times, I'm a woman now? So you think Michael is 'feminine' too then? That is quite silly, and quite disturbing that someone would come up with such an idiotic assesment. Is your hunch also telling you that I'm an alien too? I am not michaellove...we are not one in the same. I won't even bother addressing those horrible, horrible lies about me. I have children of my own, I am not a predator, a monster....some sick soul. I love children but not in the twisted way some are trying to portray here.

@Susan62509

"My fans"? NO, they are not my fans, they are my friends, friends whom I hold very close to my heart, friends whom I love dearly...saying fans is incredibly creepy and it makes me feel quite uncomfortable. I would like and appreciate it if you were to never say that again. Thank you...

@Sybil-Sally

Pardon? Rhonda, L.C.A. and I are all the same being? You are clearly mistaken. Forgive me but that is just some crazy and bizarre thinking. I know them both quite well and they are wonderful people, beautiful people who I call my friends. Two divine women, two kind and sweet natured beings. I love them dearly and I love you too even if you do think I'm a 'sociopath'. I am not encouraging anyone to feel or believe anything. We're all adults. We all have the capability to think,process, and rationalize. We know fact from fiction, illusion and reality. We know that Michael did not die, that he is not dead. I'm sorry if that upsets you. I seldom ever talk about the events of June 25th and so on. So where is this coming from anyway?

Final words...please be kind to one another. The unkind and hurtful words are so uneccesary and uncalled for.

Sending all the love I could possibly send to all of you and more. I wish you all the best, all the goodness that life has to offer. Bless you all!

Goodnight


lois48   July 6th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

@Sybil – it is nice you can make an assessment of me and not even know me.....that says alot about how you judge people. Personally, I don't care what you think or your opinion of me. I am not here to catch critical errors in someone's blogging, I don't waste my time determining if someone is someone else. Not my bag, maybe yours, because it is all child's play, so go play your games somewhere else. Also, you can peg me as a believer but I don't because I don't categorize people as to what they believe or don't.

Maybe you should start heeding Michael's message instead of critizing people you don't even know. Isn't that what we are here for?


doubtingthomas2010   July 6th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

Marguerite- 🙂

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 10:22 pm ET

@ Marguerite

I understand how you feel and I really do enjoy reading your posts and would like to be friends.

What I don't understand is why this is happening on this blog? Honestly I was feeling so overjoyed when I first began posting on 6/25/2010 when I was getting positive responses. I was also enjoying your posts and everyone else's.

I am truly sorry for you not seeing my replies. I noticed that one of my posts actually disappeared and it was something I had written directly to a new blogger on here, "Lost Soul". I never knew what happened to the original post I sent?

I just wish everyone would get along. After all, we can all bring something enlightening to this blog besides picking on each other and what are respective posts are about. Even if we quote the Bible, or quotes by famous people, we are just contributing love and kindness.

If we can't get along on a simple blog, I don't even want to think about what is going to happen in the world as a whole.

I sincerely hope that I have not offended you, Marguerite or anyone else for that matter. THAT was NEVER my purpose here.

Love to you, Marguerite, and all !!!!!


Rhonda   July 6th, 2010 10:27 pm ET

@Sybil
I do not have split personalities. If there was a way for me to post a picture of me on here I would....I am a female.....I have always be a female....I will remain a female......I am not now, nor have I ever been a male....I only have three names I have ever posted under so if you have read these blogs like you say then you would know this...I will give you a hint
Rhonda/mjbeliever/mamabird, which is a nick name I received here on the blog. So you can believe whatever it is that you want to believe it really doesn't matter to me....And no I will need more than one seatbelt....There is many that seems to be taking the ride with me....Which I enjoy tremendously.....The more the merrier.......I have been coming to the blog ever since June of 09 and I am the same now as I was then......So talk on.......And as far as bashing or attacking anyone, I do not do that....I will however defend myself and my friends to the end.......

@simon says
No worries my friend
I am not fretting
I am not worried, because everyone that has ever blogged with me from the start knows my heart and my soul and that is all that matters to me. All My Love To You Simon and come visit me soon...

@LoveConquersAll
Just keep holding on my friend
It gets worse...

Much Love


LoveConquersAll   July 6th, 2010 10:34 pm ET

Instead of picking on other bloggers because of what they post, why can't the people who find fault focus all of that energy on bringing something of themselves to the blog that has to do with Peace, Kindness and Love. It takes more energy to hurt someone than it is to show LOVE. If people want to waste their time hijacking names, pretending to be someone else, then let that be on their conscience.

I don't believe I have ever put anyone down on this blog and if I have unknowingly, I do apologize. Without sounding selfish, I have just put a lot of thought in what I post so that I can hopefully bring positive feedback, not negative. If my posts are received in a negative way, that was not my true intention.

All I can do is try and ignore the negativity and gain strength from the positive. I really wish that we could bring LOVE back to this blog because we should be all one big family...Hopefully a happy one at that!

"It's all for Love...L.O.V.E"

Goodnight and Many Blessings to all!

@Beverly – Chicago
It's great to hear that you're doing well. Yes, you have ran into a real mess. I'm not sure how people think up all of these things. lol That's right my friend, Michael is still alive.🙂 Lots of love hugs and blessings

@Rhonda
Awwww Rhonda🙂 Your posts are already incredible. You are an incredible friend too. Never worry about any of this mess going on. We your friends will always be here. Lots of love hugs and blessings

@LoveConquersAll
Anytime hon🙂 Please don't feel discouraged in the least bit. You are one of the great things about this blog. You are so kind. I'm glad to have you among the friends circle. Lots of love hugs and blessings

@Mr. A
Mr. A, if you are reading this... I'm so sorry that you still are having trouble even when you're not posting. Oh poor dear, you can never catch a break for nothing! I'm sending a big hug to you. It will be okay. Lots of love and blessings too my wonderful friend.

@Simon says
Hello, nice to see you here again Simon. I hope you're doing well. Thank you for always observing and trying to tell people what is really going on. Lots of love hugs and blessings


Sybil-Sally   July 6th, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Dear Rhonda-

I never doubted your were a female. I'm not saying you were a male, female, a hermaphodite, bi, tri or asexual. Please review the following writing styles-

Posted by Mr. A

It is not nice to falsely accuse others, it isn't nice to make premature assesments or judgments of others...it is never good or wise to defame someone's character...in both a legal and moral sense. I have only tried to bring love, peace and unity here. I have always treated everyone with the uptmost respect. I have never been inapropriate or provacative in anyway

Posted by Rhonda

I do not have split personalities. If there was a way for me to post a picture of me on here I would....I am a female.....I have always be a female....I will remain a female......I am not now, nor have I ever been a male....

Notice the writting patterns? the dot dot dot dot dot gives it away. I don't think it is a coincidence. It's really easy to blog on 2 computers and hit the submit button within a few moments of each other. It's too obvious the both of you post very close together and the context of your statements and opinions are all too similar. Just an observation.

Oh and Rhonda just because you post a picture of yourself doesn't mean you can't post under different names. That sounds like a Murray defense.

Dear Lois-
I am not interested in assessing any dimension of your life, just pointing out the statements that you previously made. I don't have any bags, not even under my eyes so you will not live in my head rent-free. You can categorize, label or call yourself whatever you feel comfortable with, the fact remains that you believe Mr. Michael Jackson is a crook and fraud that manipulated the world. In terms of heeding Michael's message, I am not supporting any fraduelent or criminal message you associate with Michael- to lie to the world and endorse criminal behavior on behalf of Conrad Murray and Mr. Michael Jackson. I don't play games- that is a washed out statement that is overused and inappropriate. Besides- I would win anyway.


Timeless   July 6th, 2010 10:47 pm ET

@ Mr.A

Wonderfully articulated my dear friend...May Joy And Love be with you always and the beauty of your soul remain unwavering.

Your Kindness and Compassion is exemplary, have pride in your grace.

Love to you.
(((( OUR World ))))


Rhonda   July 6th, 2010 10:57 pm ET

@Whoever you are

So big deal........I type with dots......so does alot of people.......I have always posted like this most of the time unless I am posting lyrics or a poem...So what....that really proves nothing....but like I said you believe whatever it is that you want to believe...It really doesn't matter to me and I have had this conversation before........if you look at alot of post on here they have dots in them so am I all of those people too......


Mr A   July 6th, 2010 10:59 pm ET

@ Rhonda

Have you heard the news? We're the same person, my dear! Oh yes....we are one in the same. I am you and you are me! I'm sorry I cannot stop laughing. I nearly spilled juice all over myself. Isn't that just the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard? I would just like to say....please don't take any of this to heart, anything that is said or written about you here. It's only a blog afteralll. I myself tend to forget that sometimes.., but please, PLEASE don't get yourself all worked up over things so trivial, so small. They are only words on a screen, right? I have to keep reminding myself. Please take care of you, yourself.

Please continue to be the loving and caring being that you are. You know who and what you are and so do we all. We all know how truly amazing and wonderful you are! Please be well and take care. I wish you eternal happiness, peace and love! All the love in the world and more, Rhonda! Many blessings to you and your familly. I love you Rhonda. So, so much.🙂

@Sybil-Silly

Are you well tonight, dear? Please, this is not healthy and I mean that in the most loving, caring and sincere way possible. Please take care of yourself. Laugh a little, love a little.🙂


lois48   July 6th, 2010 11:00 pm ET

@Sybil – you have no idea what I believe as far as MJ goes, and FYI I do not believe he is a crook, etc...maybe you think so but sorry to disappoint you, but you are wrong again, however you keep posting and embarrassing yourself.

LOVE and PEACE Sybil - I think you need some.

Restless Soul   July 6th, 2010 11:07 pm ET

These are my words and hear them clearly.

What I will say now, is just food for your thought. Please allow me to paint a picture so you can further understand the impact the media has on someone's life. In addition to media, it is important others understand that words expressed have an affect on another in ways you seem to miscomprehend. If you did, you would not do it.

Imagine every aspect of your whole life printed for the world to see.
Imagine the news papers, tabloid and other media countrywide focusing on distortion and misrepresentation of your life for the entire world to see – incessantly.

Imagine reading news reporters calling you names, speculating about your personal life (sexuality, preference, and relationships).
Imagine perceiving your career, relationships and everything you value threatened because of it and feeling you can do nothing about it.
Imagine your integrity, motivations and dignity are repeatedly chastised, exploited and ridiculed based on media distortions and lies.

Imagine feeling the world that once embraced and supported you, now seem to turn away.
Imagine the emotional impact on YOU.

Now, imagine the impact to your loved ones.

Imagine your own voice …..almost silent though you are speaking and trying to set it straight and even those words are analyzed and scrutenized.
Imagine your past (mostly the worst) in gossip, speculation, scrutiny in hundreds of new papers, tabloids, television and radio.
Imagine being called names or considered "guilty" for something horrible you did not even do.
Imagine reporters referring to you using an unkind name that is not yours.
Imagine knowing your reality, but the truth is not vocalized nor supported because other media does not think it is "interesting enough" to report the truth.

NOW again....IMAGINE the emotional impact to you, your family, your loved ones, your supporters....

Imagine this for years to come. Good, now we have that picture painted... tell me: Could you bear this, fight the internal struggle and hold your head up to the world in all your integrity and dignity? I bet you can’t.

You see, that is what the media world does to human beings at the worst. No one in the history of mankind suffered as MJ and his family. NO ONE. He asked for it to stop. He tried to set it straight. He was not supported by many reporters because they "felt it was not interesting enough". Wonder why he wanted to SCREAM?

While we here do stand up for one another, there is a lesson to learn here as you read the above words and internalize it personally.

Now that you have done that, let me ask you.....

Wonder why Mr. A, Rhonda, me, Timeless, Ibelieve )and any other who has been through such bizarre claims and verbal asaults made by some on this blog) want to scream? This blog is world-wide. Many people read this blog. Don't you think that there is something wrong with unproven accusations? Words have weight whether you realize it or not.

It is beyond my comprehension that some do not think it is wrong to criticize in the manner some have about someone and their friends they hold dear here on this blog. It is beyond my comprehension why someone would exert so much energy into defamation of character of others. This is very hurtful and disrespectful. You would not like it one bit should someone do this to you or those you hold dear. Many here like Mr. A, timeless, rhonda, IB, myself and others who stand up for one another do so because we know the truth. We know our friends. These people, and others I have seen here, are some of the most lovliest people in the world. I am happy and proud to be their friends. I am humbled they are my friends. I am sorry some do not see this nor value the connections as we do. But it hurts when you hurt them or question us about how we feel about those we love. How would it be to you? You would be hurt too.

This is all just somethin to think about. The very behaviors in the picture painted above are the very same ones the media did to MJ and his loved ones. It is the same some of you are doing to innocent abd beautiful souls....please stop it, it is not nice.

Please....lets really think about this and be kind to one another. The mess needs to stop.

Much love to my friends here.. You all know who you are. I love you dearly and you are held dearly in my heart as well.

Much love to the beautiful souls out there. Thank you for the love and kindness you demonstrate to others.

Did you happen to notice Jermaine looking directly into the camera in that photo? That really bugs me.
Michael should be here...the silence with Murray is deafening.

@Restless Soul – thank you for your great post. It does have to stop.... unfortunately only a few bad apples can turn a positive vibe into sourness. It is sad that some just don't get it.

LoveConquersAll- Those you call friends are the very people that have been attacking me the last months. A Truce was supposedly called 2 days ago and here they are saying Simon says is right and correct in what they said about me. Byt he way Larry King Mods deleted Simon's post 24 hours ago and Rhonda and Ibelieve are talking to Simon as if he/she just posted. You think they would get the message loud and clear when the mods deleted that post but they did not.

@Mr A
Yes so I have heard.......Oh sorry, I am using dots again.....What people say on this blog sometimes gets me yes....Especially when someone accuses one of my dearest friends with horrible accusations. That does not sit well with me at all......Please do not spill your juice and no spitting on the screen either. Please no frowning and no pacing again.....Maybe you should come and sit in your chair where it is safe.....My daughter and myself are doing okay for now....I was in the hospital on Saturday......But we can discuss that later......You do have something you can check......I will always remain me and you know this.......I miss you and I love you Most.......

All My Love To You

Yes it is all about Michael...It has always been about Michael and Michael would be doing the same thing for his friends as well....

@carie....
I heard about the little girl.....My prayers are with her and her family in this time of need.......My they find her quickly....safe and unharmed....

Maybe, why some people cannot show love is because they are lacking God in their hearts. Without God in our lives we are lost souls.


babycarie   July 7th, 2010 7:39 am ET

Susan
This whole Barrack/Lowe thing really baffles me...more so than this 'blog'! 🙂
This was Michael's dream which just irks me, but Lowe? And did Barrack profit (like countless others) off Michael's death, and would/could he ever use Neverland for anything regarding this Dreamworks type business venture??? I know the two are totally unrelated but Michael seems to be the hop exploitation ticket and it just begs the ?.
And you had mentioned that after the 02 concerts Michael was going to collaborate on film projects...Randy Philips stated that after the 02, the tour would go worldwide....it just seems to me once they got Michael out there he would have been stuck out there indefinitely...??? Their money machine...which he is even in death.

MESSAGE FROM ATTORNEY, TOM MESEREAU, IN RESPONSE TO THE ORGANIZERS & SUPPORTERS OF THE PETITION "MR. MESEREAU, WILL YOU BE THERE?" SPONSORED BY "The WorldWide Michael Jackson FANily"

_____________________________

To Supporters of Michael Jackson and the Jackson family:

Thank you for your generous comments and interest.

Like many of you, I believe Mr. Joseph Jackson could have chosen better and more appropriate legal counsel. However, this is his choice to make.

As you know, Attorney Susan Yu and I are partners in the firm of Mesereau & Yu, LLP. We specialize in criminal defense and business litigation. We do not specialize in probate law or will contests.

Although we are unwilling to participate in legal proceedings where we feel we lack the required expertise, we are supporters of Mrs. Katherine Jackson. I am in touch with certain members of the family and am willing to support them where I feel it is appropriate.

Thank you for your kind petition. Michael was a sensitive and loving person whom the world misses.

Sincerely,

Tom Mesereau

come on now lets have some fun
is rhonda really three in one
cos some would say true is two
a boy or girl what can i do
then you have sybil sally
of that one i cant keep tally
then you have mr A
slandered bad the other day
apparantly they think he is more
and they want to throw him out the door
fingers pointing everywhere
show us proof if you dare
cos careless talk i will not hear
but the truth some may fear
so before you accuse and judge away
get your facts right before you say
cos being slandered is not nice
you really all need to think twice
cos there is only one of me
and thats the way it will always be
and i like to tell the truth
so please dont judge without the proof
and now its time to slip away
cos i dont know who i am today
but then again who are you
and can you say your heart is true
so now you have me in a twist
i hope you get the point of this
but those who know me will understand
they know my heart and hold my hand

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

@Letta(IbeLIEve):

Hi Letta, I hope you are feeling good and taking care of yourself!
Thank you for all of your inspirational messages on the blog recently which have been very uplifting!

I'm not really having doubts about anything. I believe in the validity of Mr. A. I know that a bunch of you are very good friends with Mr. Anonymous and that you cherish his friendship and you should because he is obviously a wonderful person. I know that he cherishes his friendship with each one of you as well. So, you should feel blessed! Friendships like that don't come along very often. You should consider yourselves lucky in that respect.

I just wish that people on the blog would quit attacking one another because it is ultimately counter-productive and creates hurt feelings.

Have a wonderful and beautiful day, Letta!

Love and Hugs,
Beverly

Dance Hall of Fame to induct Michael Jackson

By JOSEPH DALTON, Special to the Times Union
First published in print: Sunday, May 2, 2010
SARATOGA SPRINGS - The late Michael Jackson will be inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame during events Aug. 14 and 15 at the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs. The posthumous honor to the King of Pop is the first time a figure from rock and roll is so honored.
Since the Hall of Fame was established in 1987, 43 dancers and choreographers have been inducted, primarily from the fields of ballet and modern dance. The ranks include George Balanchine, Martha Graham and Bronislava Nijinska as well as Fred Astaire and tap dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. The most recent honorees are Broadway star Tommy Tune and New York City Ballet chief Peter Martins.
The Jackson tribute comes on the heels of a controversial effort two years ago to induct John Travolta. Disagreement and strife arose among the museum's board, advisers and management about whether Travolta, primarily a film actor, deserved such an honor. But there were also complaints about the manner in which the nomination was handled.
Everyone is on board for Michael Jackson, says Michele Riggi, board chairman for the last five years. That includes the nominating committee, which is led by Denise Limoli, a retired dancer with the American Ballet Theatre currently on the faculty of Skidmore College.
**********************************************************
Michael was truly amazing....so much talent in such a small body!!! Dance, sing, compose, draw, write, innovate, etc. etc. etc.

Murray took so much from this world...there is no justice for what he did.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Looks Like Michael Has been buried for the second time... Not once have i seen Michael Name for anything good that he has done...
WHAT,,, DID EVERYONE FORGET ABOUT MICHAEL..


alice   July 7th, 2010 7:21 pm ET

Why wasn't Michael inducted into the dance hall of fame years ago? To think they would attempt to induct Travolta before Michael. Just proves how he was overlooked for his genius the past 15 years. Very upsetting.


"Pixie Dust "   July 7th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

alice,your post at 7:21 pm..I agree Michael should of been inducted into the dance hall of fame many years ago,No offense to John Travolta,mind you but Michael most certainly deserved to have that honor.Yes it is beyond sad.That Michael was put on the back burner so to speak,when he should of always been out front.(Smiles)to you.


babycarie   July 7th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Alice
Agreed...Michael was overlooked for many things over the past ten + years...and when he died all of a sudden everyone wants to jump on the Michael exploitation train. All the accolades he is receiving after death should have been bestowed upon him during his lifetime.
It really is a shame that Michael Jackson has been completely ignored...he deserved/DESERVES much better!!!!

Rest in peace sweet Michael.

@Angie Pie
Good Morning my friend. Wanted to post some food of strength to you before I went to Treatment.
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to be known God.

Also here is something more for your to enjoy.

What is a Friend?

A friend is someone who listens,
A friend is someone who cares.
A friend is someone who understands,
A friend is someone who shares.
It's nice to have a special friend
To tell all your secrets to.
It's nice to know that someone you like,
Is someone who really likes you.
A friend is someone you call on the phone
To talk about nothing at all.
A friend is someone who cheers you up.
And makes you feel ten feet tall.
Everyone would like to have
A special friend it's true
But if you want a special friend,
You need to be one, too.
Will you be there?

Love, Hugs, ^ many blessings my friend. Letta


letta(IbeLIEve)   July 8th, 2010 4:24 am ET

What a Friend means to me:

A friend's an attitude within you,
A talk you can always continue
A feeling you have known awhile,
A thought that sparks an inner smile.

A friend's a person you hold dear,
Who ventures far, yet stays quite near,
Whose presence sets the spirit free,
Who brings out candor and honesty.

A friend shares all your joys and tears,
Feels triumph with you, knows your tears,
Accepts your strengths and weaknesses too,
Won't let small things dull friendship's hue.

A friend will walk life's miles with you,
And nourish values sound and true,
Though paths may sometimes drift apart,
True friendship never leaves the heart.

Have a good day everyone, Hope that the blog is calm now, Love, & Blessings..Letta


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 8th, 2010 5:43 am ET

How about The Nobel Peace Prize for Michael as well. Didn't President Obama get it last time...........


This is it!   July 8th, 2010 6:11 am ET

To live your life as you are dieing,
with every breath you take,
Is living your life to the fullest,
in ever decission you make,
It will take you to a place,
where excitement screams with joy,
It will make you live your life,
with all wonders to enjoy,
It will take your spirit on a ride,
like a roller coaster of fun,
It will make you share your heart,
with loving words for everyone,
It will take you to the edge of a cliff,
to see what lies below,
It will open your soul to all beauty,
with a warm ever lasting glow,
It will make you live your dream,
with open arms to dare,
It will make you render apologies.
to whom for all you care,
It will make your passion shine,
with a glow from deep within,
It will make you extremly happy,
with this new life to begin

Bless You All~

@Maura

Have been watching some of your videos on Youtube............someone there even thought you were Michael.


Susan62509   July 8th, 2010 7:55 am ET

Hi Babycare:

Michael's future dreams of pursuing film was after he finished all the 02 concerts, not just the London venue. MJ's contract with AEG was to tour between 1 to 1.5 years long. Barrick never profitted off Michael when he was alive. In fact, he saved Neverland by forming Sycamore Ranch Corp. with MJ therefore not letting MJ lose 100% of it. Plus during that transaction MJ borrowed approx. $24 million which would have been from Barrick.

Barrick and Rob Lowe and 1 other guy want to join together financially to create a Dreamworks type company. Lowe is on the financial end only, IMO, because his talent is acting. I would believe if Michael were still alive, Barrick would have included Michael into this venture rather than Rob Lowe.


Susan62509   July 8th, 2010 8:10 am ET

Babycarie:

Hi again. I forgot something. I found the video of Janet's Essence Music Festival. I watched 3 performance and am assuming you were commenting on the one where she is wearing the black dress, then removes it later. I didn't care for it at all. I think it's classless when a performer has to go down to this level to get attention especially when children can watch. I concluded that Janet was copying Lady Gaga from Gaga's Alejandro video. There are many Gaga Alejandro videos in the media and the one I'm referring to is the one on CNN. If you search CNN for Lady Gaga's new Alejandro video it will come up. It's the one that begins with marching guys just like MJ did in TII.

I wonder if the fans that contacted Tom Mesereau realize he is a defense lawyer and not a prosecuter? Tom always stands behind MJ. He has very respectful comments regarding MJ's death.


Susan62509   July 8th, 2010 8:18 am ET

Marguerite July 7th, 2010 12:33 pm ET

Babycarie-
You are so right......every word you wrote about Michael being overlooked the past 10 years of his life. I honestly believe if he wasn't, he would still be with us. That is the sad truth. I miss all that he was, and all that he was still yet to be. We have all be robbed of us magic, talent, charisma and humanity.


pat davis   July 8th, 2010 3:44 pm ET

Good Afternoon Everyone🙂 !

@ Jessie, I agree. Michael deserved/deserves The Noble Peace Prize. He's has been nothing but an attiribute to this world through his works of humanity. Just imagine how many lives Michael Jackson is responsible for saving. Or how many young adults he provided scholarships for. He was never honored the way he should have been. How does John Travolta, an actor, get inducted into the Dance Hall Of Fame before Michael Jackson??? I'm still upset that he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award in music AFTER he died! Michael deserved that award after Thriller. He did something that no other entertainer has done or will ever do. He had the biggest selling album of all time. THAT alone is a lifetime achievement for most entertainers yet Michael Jackson accomplished it while in his 20's! Everytime I hear something like this I understand more and more why Michael felt the industry turned their backs on him.


doubtingthomas2010   July 8th, 2010 6:27 pm ET

*Oh poo: the NYT says that Miramax could be sold "within a week" to construction executive Ronald Tutor and Colony Capital, a private equity firm. Conspicuously not mentioned as a likely winner of Miramax: Rob Lowe and his band of wacky Italians. Disappointing.*
*************************************************************************
Susan
I thought Colony Capital and Lowe were looking at this venture together???
And thank you for the info...I guess we can consider Barrack one of the good guys?? But his connection with Tohme has me suspect....where is Waldo???!!! 🙂
And Michael was to tour from 1-2 years...that was a crazy idea!! He hated to tour and was over with that part of his life...as he said, "I go through hell touring." The 02 would have been enough for Michael...50 concerts would have been too much in my opinion. Tragic that he never made it to London.
That Janet performance was beyond anything I have seen her do...disappointing to see her attempt to keep up with the 'trend' of garbage happening today. Oh, well...

Chris Brown's tribute was extraordinarily moving, an awakening moment for him, and for us all. He cried, because he "saw" the man in the mirror. He strongly desires to change his ways, to be a better man. We should afford him this chance. He also loves Michael very much, his light, his childhood idol. Chris, I know you can "make that change. " My heart goes out to you during your journey to betterment. You deserve a second chance. We all need one.

Would you not want for someone to grant you a second chance? Forgiveness is important.

Much love to you,🙂

As Tom Mesereau and Aphrodite Jones stated, that trial 2005 killed Michael...he was just going through the motions of life after...just tragic. He was robbed of his childhood, and then robbed of his life, the life he built for himself, when those false and disgusting accusation came about from GREED!! And now his children and the world are robbed of his beauty.
As you so eloquently stated...
'I miss all that he was, and all that he was still yet to be. We have all be robbed of us magic, talent, charisma and humanity.'

Pat,nice to see you! I appreciated your comment ,and agree! Michael has many 'Lifetime Achievements' ,and broke many records time and time again ,and it is true ,he deserved so much more than what he was given .Love Maria C.


Leela Dinunzio   July 8th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

Carebear ,That was beautiful comment on Chris Brown,yes we all make mistakes ,and why shouldnt he also be given another chance? He did a wonderful job ,in his tribute,his was my favorite ,along with the one from Dancing W/the stars ,last yr,it was excellent too! Nice to see you ,Love Maria C.

"Yes. Chris was wonderful. Michael would be very proud if he were alive..."

@cris

Michael is still very much alive. He was standing outside the home at 100 Carolwood Drive, June 25, 2009, before his disappearance. He was alive at that point in time. I imagine that he and Tito are still enjoying Mexican food.

Love,

The world is awakening to the truth that divine love prevails.
Through global media, I have continual access to information on world events. I know about earthquakes, floods, famine and wars. I know about success and upheaval. But all I really need to know is: Divine love prevails. This is the truth that I hold in my heart.

The power of divine love begins with me. Because of love, I reach out to family, friends and the world community and act with compassion and understanding. Because of love, I keep a positive attitude, beholding the absolute good in each one of us. Because of love, I affirm wholeness and peace for all as I hold the world in prayer.

Prayer by prayer, thought by thought, moment by moment, the heart of every person is touched by the grace and truth of love.

Love covers all offenses.–Proverbs 10:12


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 9th, 2010 7:08 am ET

cant you hear it beating can you not feel the pain
those that keep on playing should hang there heads in shame
yes this is a virtual world but with a human heart
how much more can it take before it falls apart
to many are assuming they know whats in the mind
so now i am asking everyone take care and please be kind
cos in this virtual world deception does run deep
and in the real world for all of you i weep
i for one am not virtual reality is me
so i cannot switch it off the pain will always be
there is no escape not ever so what am i to do
shall we all take a moment and find out who is true
and once again i ask you take care in what you say
cos in this virtual world lies run deeper everyday
they say its all for love well let me tell you this this
i cannot find that love in some it does not exist
so in the virtual world if you cannot be true
in the real world would i be a friend to you

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


claire   July 9th, 2010 7:29 am ET

I said i wasn't going to write this, but so much has changed.

Someone is playing games with me
Messing with my ID i see
So whoever you are
Just tell me this
Do you get enjoyment
Out of your kicks.
Its really not nice for me
To keep on explaning my identity
Trusting someone comes from the heart
And this is the way i will start.
Whoever you are, its not a game
And you should put yourself to shame
So please don't use me in this way
That is all i have to say.

@ TRUE
I am you, you are you, could here really be two TRUES ???

Remember the 25th annirversary, when Michael stood next to his sister Janet and said, We really are two different people.


babycarie   July 9th, 2010 7:41 am ET

Tito tweted that he doesn't speak of it much but he is 'proud to be his brother and I miss him every day'...to those who feel he is laughing at Michael's death tweet him about it...

You all really amaze me...pretend to be fans of Michael, jump on the family boat of defense yet laugh at mock Michael;'s death. Where is the Godly and saintly virtues in such blasphemy??

And to come to these blogs over and over again to contribute absolutely nothing is very disrespectful to Michael, but you all do not care...it is about your virtual friendships. Maybe making some real friends would fill that void?? You all are just like those who turned their backs on MIchael...and use this space for yourselves.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 9th, 2010 8:08 am ET

Yes, thanks to God that the little Missouri girl was found. I saw the video of the community all praying together for this child and shortly after a miracle happened and she was found alive.

I am a believer in the power of prayer and I believe this community's prayers were answered.

Who's watching
Tell me who's watching
Who's watching me

I'm just an average man with an average life
I work from 9 to 5, hey hell, I pay the price
All I want is to be left alone, in my average home
But why do I always feel
Like I'm in the Twilight Zone? and...

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy, whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me, is it just a dream

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I'm trying to avoid
Well, can the people on TV see me, or am I just paranoid?

When I'm in the shower, I'm afraid to wash my hair
Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing there!
People say I'm crazy, just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much
That's why...

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy, whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playin' tricks on me?

Who's watching me
I don't know anymore!
Are the neighbors watching me?
Who's watching
Well is the mailman watching me?
Tell me who's watching
And I don't feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who's watching me now
Who?
The IRS?!

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy, whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me is it just a dream?
I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy, whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me?
Who's watching me?
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Oooh, whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me, can it be?
Who's watching me?
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Whoa-oa-oa
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me?
Who's watching me?
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Can I have my privacy
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me?


KDH   July 9th, 2010 9:57 am ET

it is hard to judge any celebrity's true emotions, they are very well adapted to hiding and playing up to the cameras – whichever suits their needs.
I believe that Chris B, honestly and whole heartily admired MJ and credits MJ for 'his career' (as many young 'hip hop and pop artist do)
I did not watch the awards ceremony, but did see the tribute – no one – and I mean absolutely NO ONE could hold a candle to dearest Michael.. therefore, a more fitting and proper 'tribute' would not have been to attempt to imitate, but rather tribute – perhaps write a song 'to MJ' while images of Michael thru the years displayed behind. CB HAS to have "not seen before" images of he and MJ around somewhere – yes?

I dunno, just my 2 cents for what it is worth.

Where are my friends??
Rhonda ???
Brooklyn ???
TinkTink???
It has been a while – please help me find 'home' again (I sent an email to yahoo! addy) I miss you all.

"LOOK WITHIN"

There is so much beauty in
This wondrous, blue rose
If only we could capture it
Within our very souls

If we could take its beauty
And apply the glow within
Search a little deeper
In the soul beneath our skin

Take what it does stand for
And shed its love abroad
Don't hide the glow within you
But share the love of God

You know you can't touch beauty
Without it rubbing off on you
And spreading it to others
In the kindness that you do

There lies within each one of us
The beauty like this rose
When it's used in touching others
Then its beauty overflows

"It's all for LOVE...L.O.V.E"...Michael Jackson

Love and Peace to Everyone...Have a Pleasant Day!

Here is something that I believed in hope that you like it . Love,hugs, & Blessings. Letta
(P.S.) Hope all enjoyed this post also...it is about Faith

My faith brings results.
By focusing on my blessings, it's easy to prove my faith. As I pay close attention, I notice the small gifts that come my way–a smile, a word of thanks, the sun breaking through the clouds, a succession of green lights on my drive home. These little blessings add up as I choose to focus on the daily miracles in my life.

It is the everyday moments and my present awareness in those moments that define my experience of life. They reflect where I focus my attention and energy. I choose to focus on Spirit's unfailing presence. I have faith that whatever I need is here with me right now. I have faith that every prayer is answered. I have faith that with Spirit all is well.

Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And instantly the woman was

We Had Him:
Written by Maya Angelou
for Michael Jackson
upon his death
recited on June 21, 2010
by Ms. Angelou herself
in tribute to Michael Jackson:

Beloveds, now we know that we know nothing
Now that our bright and shining star can slip away from our fingertips like a puff of summer wind

Without notice, our dear love can escape our doting embrace
Sing our songs among the stars and and walk our dances across the face of the moon

In the instant we learn that Michael is gone we know nothing
No clocks can tell our time and no oceans can rush our tides
With the abrupt absence of our treasure

Though we our many, each of us is achingly alone
Piercingly alone
Only when we confess our confusion can we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him

He came to us from the Creator, trailing creativity in abundance
Despite the anguish of life he was sheathed in mother love and family love and survived and did not more than that

He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style
We had him
Whether we knew who he was or did not know, he was our's and we were his
We had him

Beautiful, delighting our eyes
He raked his hat slant over his brow and took a pose on his toes for all of us and we laughed and stomped our feet for him

We were enchanted with his passion because he held nothing
He gave us all he had been given

Today in Tokyo, beneath the Eiffel Tower, in Ghana's Blackstar Square, in Johannesburg, in Pittsburgh, in Birmingham, Alabama and Birmingham England, we are missing Michael Jackson

But we do know that we had him
And we are the world.

Errol Flynn was one of Hollywood's first heroes. By the time he starred in The Adventures of Robin Hood in 1938, Flynn had already acted in movies for five years and had become a star for his role in Captain Blood.

You could say adventure was in Flynn's blood. His mother was a direct descendant of a sailor on the HMS Bounty, famous for their mutinous crew that overthrew the captain. When he grew up in England he was kicked out of just about every school in which he was enrolled according to Britain's Biography Channel. Flynn's acting was a way for him to deal with his childhood angst. His parents had no interest in plays or acting as his father was a biologist.

His lifestyle choices including much drinking and alcohol and he died at the age of 50 in 1959 in Vancouver. The official cause of death listed on the cover of the autopsy report for Errol Leslie Flynn was myocardial infarction. On top of that, it was found he had cirrhosis of the liver, hardened arteries, and a diseased colon.

In Flynn's case art truly did imitate life. His combative roles often mimicked the tortured and angry soul within. Typecast as a swashbuckling hero who always gets the woman in the end, Flynn was also accused and later acquitted of statutory rape in the early 1940s. Flynn was laid to rest in Los Angeles' Forest Lawn Memorial Park (where Michael Jackson is buried) far from the homelands of his reckless youth.


babycarie   July 10th, 2010 11:22 am ET

Unlike Errol Flynn, Judy Garland's parents both were famous entertainers in their own right. Frank and Ethel Gumm had both starred in vaudeville shows and took their three girls along with them. As
the girls grew older they soon branched out on their own with their mother being their road manager. Frances Gumm was the youngest and she later changed her name to Judy Garland and earned her first Hollywood role in the short musical film Every Sunday in 1936.

Very shortly, Garland would star with Mickey Rooney and then achieve super stardom in the film adaptation of the musical The Wizard of Oz. The long hours of rehearsing and filming took their toll on Garland as she became addicted to amphetamines when studio executives had suggested she try to remain thin for her on screen appearance.

According to Biography.com, Garland was married five times. She was also a Grammy-winning singer for her performance at Carnegie Hall in 1961. She married her fifth husband Mickey Deans three months before her untimely death in London, England, reportedly of an accidental overdose of pills. In 1969, Hollywood mourned the loss of a talent that could never be replaced.

Unlike Errol Flynn, Garland's childhood was surrounded by the love of performing. At a young age she understood what it took to be a successful performer and she tried to translate that success to films. Although her film career was legendary, the high cost was her life at the age of 47.

As we reflect back upon the more recent lives lost, these two legends of the big screen died around the age of 50. Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, was also 50 and reminds me as the combination of both Errol Flynn and Judy Garland. Both Flynn and Garland, as well as Michael Jackson, left behind children that still needed the guidance of the parents who passed away.

Flynn's parents had no performing background whatsoever and worked hard for their family. Garland's parents took their kids on the road and entertained at an early age. Both of their lives have served as a lesson to those of us who study them that no amount of stress, parental pressure, and money is worth your own life. These same demons plague everyday lives on a constant basis.

While we still hear the names of Jackson, Ledger, and Murphy as recent cases of Hollywood's tragic endings let us not forget that these lessons have already surfaced a half century ago. Until our society disfavors what looks good on the outside instead of the heart and soul within, we will continue to allow the lives of those we revere the most to be destroyed needlessly.

Creator of Glee Hints at Britney Spears, Michael Jackson Episodes
Posted on July 9th, 2010 12:11 PM by M.L. House
Show: Glee

Nothing is confirmed, and no quotes are on the record, but it's looking increasingly likely that Glee will dedicate episodes next season to Britney Spears and Michael Jackson.

The Britney rumor has been floating around for weeks and Entertainment Tonight reports creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that he's penning an installment based around this singer's songs.

As for MJ? Glee will air in the coveted post-Super Bowl spot in February. Murphy says he's planning a major tribute episode for that night and said ET was "close" when it guessed Jackson would be at the center of it.

We'll have more on these rumblings when they are closer to fact, but sound off now in our Glee forum:

Which rumored tribute episode has you more excited?

Once again, your post was so enlightening with a lot of valid points.
I particularly loved your comment "No man or woman walks on this earth without pains nor without the desire to simply .... be loved. Everyone deserves to be loved for all they are, all they are not and all they will be"...Very well-stated and so true because that is all that we seek.

It is sad that the media always has to put their own "spin" and apply their own lies and untruths just to make the story more interesting. And no, it is not fair to Mr. Brown. And it was never fair for Mr. Michael Jackson. ~ All to sell a story and peak the interest of some narrow-minded individuals who buy into it.

I know we all have our own pre-conceptions of celebrities and their chosen lifestyles. We all tend to draw our conclusions but nothing is based on fact. The Real fact comes directly from the source, the celebrity, themselves. It is time for us to wake up to the media-bias before it strips and destroys another celebrity of their dignity...After all, they are human beings, with feelings that run deep.

Sorry to go on and on...Hopefully this makes some sense as to what I am trying to convey.

Our hearts stand with Michael as we have always known the real truth, the emotions, the feelings, the true heart and soul of the Man, the human being. It is evident in his actions and his message.

Love and Blessings to you, Restless Soul, and to ALL !

I try to understand why the loss of Michael has been so devastating. There have been many beloved entertainers lost tragically before their time. None quite as tragic, nor as big a loss as Michael. Why? Several reasons come to mind.
Michael's love for his fans and the way he connected with each and every one making us feel he was performing just for each of us. We felt his passion. His humility, kindness and generosity made him feel like a part of us. He died, tragically, before his time, on his way to a huge comeback. Fans feel robbed and cheated from his talent and music. Growing up with him and having his music become the soundtrack of our lives, his loss is like losing a family member. He touched us all, like no other ever did nor ever will. He crossed racial lines and barriers and taught us all the meaning of love thy brother, regardless of race or religion. Touched our hearts in so many ways.


lola   July 10th, 2010 7:16 pm ET

I think another reason you can add to the list is "guilt". Many feel we let Michael slip out of our lives the past 10 years of his life. He was overlooked for many accolades and tributes that only now, afterhis death he is being recognized for. If only we had fought harder for him when he was alive, perhaps he would still be with us. The guilt adds to the tragedy of his loss.


Restless Soul   July 10th, 2010 8:12 pm ET

By the way, I loved Mr. Brown's performance.

My earlier post is just so people are mindful how the media portrays a "story".... and to be mindful about facts versus opinion. And likewise to the media that these are people's lives they report for all the world to see.

I think their story would have been more rounded and fair had they included comments from Mr. Brown himself. We can assume, infer, deduce etc all we want to about what he was feeling and why, but unless Mr. Brown says it himself, would we be correct? It is just somethin' to think about.

I think Mr. Brown's energy and love in his performance was very moving and amazing.

love to you all.

Yes, the lives of a lot of stars, past and present are not the fairytale lives we can wrongly perceive them to be. They can show a different face to the public, all the while going through difficulties in their private lives, which we can never imagine.

They give all to their careers, which can be very demanding and beyond human endurance and still expected to soldier on to achieve perfection at a price.

My hat goes off to all of them and what they have given.

mariam   July 11th, 2010 6:24 am ET

Just like Lady Di , Michael was dissected by the media. An evil machine which destroyed others lives. There is no justice for both of them. Its all about money. I wish their families closure and happinness. They will never be forgotton for their charismatic and pure personalities.


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 11th, 2010 7:30 am ET

if you take the chance to open your mind
a beauty and magic you may just find
a beautiful world that we all can share
just say you believe and you will be there
cos all i see is a great big divide
the ones that believe and the ones that say he died
what has happened to the love for him
michael jackson we call him our king
he always said he loved us most
do we love him more can we use that boast
are we the ones on whom he can depend
the ones who care forever a friend
whatever you believe do you think he would smile
watching us bicker and fight all the while
he is the common bond we all share
so lets unite and show we care
listen to his message take heed of his plea
a better world for all its up to you and me
so how about we make a pact
to bring peace love and understanding back
if he is your hero look to him
think about all what he did bring
he is more then just the dance and song
the greatest humanitarian you know i am not wrong
and this is what i am trying to say
its all for love the michael way
just look in the mirror and make that change wthin
and you can truly say i love you my king

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

This is it!   July 11th, 2010 10:15 am ET

In my time of daring solitude,
standing freely on the shore,
Waves are soundly rolling by,
conveying memories of before,
Tortured with why in the present,
as a sweet memory crashes in,
The ocean screams of happiness,
the salt preserves the time within,
Placid in the daunting moment,
with a warm cradling breeze,
A wave grabs the here and now,
and captures me feet to my knees,
A ray of light sits upon my soul,
with a prayer to part my lips,
The ocean smells my energy,
for a cry of two passing ships,
The now gone with the salty breeze,
only a precious memory to hold,
Another crashing wave comes in,
taking my prayer out to sea I told

Bless You All...With A Beautiful Memory Of Michael~

@mary my friend so true

a diamond is not a priceless gem and this my friend is true
the priceless gem i think you will find is the heart that beats in you
thats why a diamond will never be for me
the only gem that i adore know one will ever see
so if they say diamonds are a girls best friend you know this is not true
the best friend a girl can have is someone with a heart like you

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

"Adversity is the first path to truth."

"BE the labor, great or small...Do it well or not at all."

"Don't be pushed by your problems. Be led by your Dreams."

We need to gather a better understanding of what's truly going on around us, not only in the world, but in our own "backyards" where it all begins. This will help us raise and heighten awareness of our own surroundings and what we, in turn, contribute to the world ~ All in the hopes of creating a better place to co-habitate.

It just takes a little time, effort and a thirst for knowledge on how to solve our existing problems. But even amongst all of the problems, never forget to take time out to experience the "Playfulness of Life".

Thank you, Michael, for your unconditional LOVE you poured out to so many. You will never be forgotten. You'll remain in our hearts.

Hope everyone is having a loving and peaceful day/night!
Keep God, Love and Faith in your Hearts!


Rhonda   July 11th, 2010 4:25 pm ET

My heart is lost
My mind is blank
My soul is hurting
with all the hate
and nasty accusations
People being accused
of horrible things
When there is no proof
to justify such things
Michael's fans turning on
one another
It should not matter
what you believe or don't
It is all still for the love
of Michael
Open your hearts and soul
and look at what is going on here
The hurting must STOP
Name calling must STOP
People are getting hurt
regardless of what you think
Just because you can not see them
does not mean that you can't hurt them
Open your heart and give into the LOVE

Marguerite   July 11th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

This is off topic but what a weekend. The factory where my hubby works at had the hourly union workers (all of production which is 700 workers) decided to go on strike. Hubby is an Engineer which is Salary and middle mangement. Saturday morning at 2am the vote was counted and the strike happened. Then at 7am Saturday morning Hubby got a call stating the factory was locking it's doors. So unless things change there is 1000 people out of work and this factory is the biggest employer in this county we live in and 6 surrounding counties. Luckily Hubby has a job to go to but the majority don't. This has even made the news in the San Francisco and Las Angeles CA newspapers. These are the people that my heart goes out to here and all over the world. People that have lost their jobs. People that can lose their homes and everything thing have.

Marguerite,how are you? Yes it is sad when a person may lose their job due to labor disputes.Hopefully management will continue to negotiate with the union workers and come to an agreement.I hear you loud and clear on this subject.I come from a city that is quite unionized.Hundreds of mill workers were sent home.due to the companies locking their doors.With the help of the union and our government, people where sent to different mills.Ones that could not be placed were then able to go to school " expenses paid "for them to be trained in new careers.I hope that it is short lived and the factory workers can return to work as soon as possible. All the best to you and yours Marguerite (Smiles) to you.

Rock With You Horsegirl   July 11th, 2010 11:16 pm ET

@Doubting Thomas, Rabbi Boteach said in his "Michael Jackson Tapes" book that Michael might have exaggerated the brutality of the police since he was on drugs. What do you think?


Marguerite   July 11th, 2010 11:17 pm ET

Pixie Dust- Doing fantastic all in all, Hubby has a job to go to which most do not have. Everyone has known this might happen for the last year and half the company has threatened more than once to close and lock the doors. The union was in negotiations with the plant the whole month of May, then they had three extentions since then. This last extention ended at 11:59pm Saturday night with the vote going to having a strike. Three weeks ago all management (upper, middle and lower management) were told to empty their offices of all their stuff and take it all home. Not to mention that they were also told to put everything into mothballs in the factory itself. So all management saw the writing on the walls for some time. The union workers have found out that they dug a deep hole they more than likely won't get out of any time soon. You should read the comments on the newpaper blogs. This company has two other factorys, one in France and one in Switzerland that have taken on what this factory has to do . It don't look good.

It lets me know how loved I am,
And keeps me safe from harm

To you my friend I am thankful,

Off its track

The words you spew
These are not you
Rocking your socks will not do
The love is now gone from you
The train should be back
With all aboard..no one left out
With saddened heart
I will now part
Your front row seat
Is meaningless now.
Enjoy it.

doubtingthomas2010   July 12th, 2010 12:04 am ET

Rock With You Horsegirl- I don't think he exaggerated at all. Due to what he was being accused of, they don't treat those particular arrests (not that they treat any) nicely. Some police officers can be very disrespectful and to throw MJ (of all people) in a room with excrement smeared on the wall for hours must have been a treat for those who were involved. And if you look at the police raid that was at Neverland, I'm not surprised. But that wasn't the first time he was attacked by police. An incident in the '80s in Alabama was the first time and he was attacked by police and store owners.

@Rock With You Horsegirl-what do you make of his statement?


doubtingthomas2010   July 12th, 2010 12:28 am ET

In 2008, he did admit at that time of the arrest and trail that he had a problem, but I do feel that the Rabbi is stating his opinion on MJ's physical state at that time.

@doubtingthomas2010, thankyou for your information. I would like more information on what happened to him in Alabama. I think I disagree with the rabbi's statement since the police in California have been known to be unfair. There has also been other cases of police brutality on civilians in other states. It's shown on the news all the time. However, Michael was at the time under the influence of drugs, and the Rabbi did ask the authorities whether they mistreated him in any way, they deny it.


This is it!   July 12th, 2010 6:11 am ET

With all the moons,
that passed me by,
One moon in particular,
caught my dreamy eye,
The sky was dark,
with many stars to see,
The moon smiling,
directly down on me,
The glow was bright,
and the smile was wide,
The stars were twinkling,
to leed me and guide,
The moment was still,
in its time of share,
A picture for my heart,
no other moon to compare

Bless the Eye that can See the Smile~

I think the LAPD were very happy to arrest him and they were making a mockery of his life. The police brutality is real and all what he says comes from suffering. Its all he's been through. FYI my cousins have vitiligo its a devastating disease when your not in the limelight let alone being a star.


mariam   July 12th, 2010 10:52 am ET

Its a serious disease that eats away at your self confidence. Has anyone considered to understand why he had dipigmentation. I can tell you my cousin was so embarassed for people to see her and it affected her relationships and finally she had dipigmentation and she looks abnormally white just like MJ. We didn't make fun of her. She wears make up to hide some patches and uses excessive black eyeliner and lipstick to look normal. For heavens sake have mercy.

Jan   July 12th, 2010 12:44 pm ET

Last month, British journalist Charles Thomson's, devastating article 'One of the Most Shameful Episodes in Journalistic History' exposed the media's horrendous coverage of the Michael Jackson trial. Using trial transcripts and extensive quotes from the media's coverage, he showed how certain newspapers, magazines and TV channels actively lied about what was going on inside the courtroom, fabricated evidence of Jackson's guilt and omitted any testimony which proved his innocence.
But despite being published by one of the biggest websites in the world, the Huffington Post, the article was ignored by the media at large – for obvious reasons.

We can't let the media keep suppressing the truth about the Michael Jackson trial. If the media won't cover the facts on their own, lets give them a push in the right direction.

Lets start by petitioning Rev Al Sharpton – a defender of MJ who interviewed Aphrodite Jones when her book came out – to invite Charles onto his radio show and interview him about the Michael Jackson trial. Rev Al's radio show reaches a huge audience all over America and a global audience on the internet. It could get the truth about MJ's trial to millions of people.

Rev Al's communications officer is Rachel Noerdlinger. You can email her at rachel@noerdlingermedia.com.

Please send her polite emails and include the link to Mr Thomson's article at Huffington Post and his email address, and tell her how many thousands of people would tune into Rev Al's radio show to hear him interview Charles Thomson about the Michael Jackson trial.

Believers or not
They all belong
Aboard the train
Of love built strong
Michael is driving
Make no mistake
All board
Its not about give or take
L.O.V.E
Its always been there
Do you hear me
Do you care
Stop the hate
Stop the mud
Stop the righteous indignation
Leave your egos at the door
Join with MJ on the dance floor
The train should never discriminate
The train is not about hate
Its not about who has a front row seat
Its about the man with the beat
Heal the World did he not say
Four more years is left to save
Will you be there
Do you care
Everyone is a fan
All the same
Believers or not
This is not a game
Simon says once again to all
Be good to each other
Move right along
keep the hate right out of here
Michael does not like like it
So let's bring him more cheer
Positive brings
What positive breeds
Take care one
Take care all
Remember why you first came here
Mend those fences
Mend those bridges
Healing begins with just that cause
Healing ends when we all belong.

Dear MJ's Honey– regards to your 11 July, 2010 post.

I hope you have evidence to back up your claims. You are no fan of Mr. Michael Jackson. You could be very aggressive and insulting. You have never submitted ONE relevant comment regarding any Mr. Michael Jackson topic ever. I challenge you to find a comment you made about any article ever posted- one with opinion and relevance anyway. Your at train..@@ is wierd. You include Firpo Carr on that one track train of yours? Yep- that sure says alot about your love for mr. Michael Jackson. p.s. I am sure Mr. Michael Jackson never wanted to rock your socks or any other footwear of yours.

I don't want to cause any problems or trouble but what I can't fathom is why you will allow posts that basically bash and say nasty comments about other bloggers but yet people like myself, and many others, who post kind words cannot be seen? It goes to show you how the bad stuff can easily slide its way in but the good is cast aside. I am far from perfect and I do try to "preach what I teach" but I do not understand what is happening?
I do hope that this problem is rectified because this is not right.

I agree with so many of the bloggers in that this is and should be about Michael Jackson. There is such a thing as Freedom of Speech, but if if is used in a negative way, it is just not good and it is very hurtful.

I do appreciate the sweet and loving comments but I sure wish that I could be a part of Michael's L.O.V.E Train" above since we all share in our Love for Michael!

I'm not sure if I am going to post anything more at least until there is a new blog. Maybe that will give us a fresh perspective on things.

Love to you and All on this blog!
(Hopefully this comment get posted)...Thank you, Moderators!

Personally, I am torn apart because Michael died. I'm not torn apart in how he died. I want justice to be served to the individual(s) that caused this unnecessary death. When the trial begins the truth of how he died will be unveiled and hopefully the powers of justice will prevail as written. CM was grossly negligent confirmed by the medical professionals and the Calif. Medical Board.

I don't understand you. First you bash Marg and now Tay. You end your nasty comments saying "be good to others". Oxymoron means: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words. This is how you write so your points are washing each other out.

I think Charles Thomson's article should have even more exposure than Sharpton's radio show. All those newspapers that ran those untrue hurtful articles against Jackson in the first plase should niw be eating crow – although it is too late. But, better late than never. How about the New York Times interviewing Thomson? Wall Street Journal? Diane Sawyer and all the other so-called journalists who were any but objective in their reporting? Disgraceful, every last one of them a bunch of cowards.

Sybil,Good day to you! Like , our dear friend Mr.A. I have tried on numerous occasions,day and nite to comment here .It is unfortunate that you feel Mr .A has ....conveniently left the blog?
Most of us are hoping he will come here and feel free to comment ,as he usually does! And I want to say ,it is always a pleasure ,and so refreshing ,to come and read comments that are kind ,and thougtful of all here! I wonder if some of us were face to face ,woulde we dare to say the hurtful ,cruel things to each others 'face'? I guess our 'mirrors' need to be looked into more often!
We dont need to come here and continue to display the Hate ,Michael experienced throughout way too many years! Comeon 'Lets Make That Change'!
I say this with Love Sybil.....lets help each other ....think before we post! Maria C.


Maria Copelli   July 12th, 2010 4:46 pm ET

One of Michael's quotes:

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub – you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.”
– Michael Jackson


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 12th, 2010 6:52 pm ET

@mary my friend so true

rise up this morning smiled with the rising sun
three little birds pitch by my doorstep
singing sweet songs of melodies pure and true
saying this is my message to you
singing dont worry about thing
cause every little thing is gonna be alright

its true these words are from another king
whos songs are messages that he did bring
and with his songs he tried to unite
did not want people to fuss and fight
he also said they can hide from you and me
but the father of creation will always see
there is no hiding place from the lord above
make that change its all for love
the greatest gift that is in all of we
is the love in our hearts so set it free
now listening to buffalo soldier i like that song
the words are enlightening i believe they belong

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


doubtingthomas2010   July 12th, 2010 7:05 pm ET

@RockWithYou Horsegirl- I disagree with the Rabbi's comment as well. He was accused of stealing candy while visiting relatives down South. When this happened, the people involved didn't realize who it was. Jermaine wanted to make this public, because he started receiving death threats after, but the family refused.

@Tay- the same to you.

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message.

I Corinthians 13:3-8

"And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind, love envies not, love vaunts not itself, is not arrogant, love does not behave itself unseemingly, it seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil, rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth, love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things, love never fails."

Seems like there is always controversy on these blogs still... but I think it adds to the mystery of being a virtual blogger.
Michael Jackson is still in many peoples hearts here and that's all that should matter.

Awwww Rhonda that is such a lovely, sweet poem that you wrote for all of us.🙂 Thank you so much. I appreciate your poetry and I appreciate you.

@Sybil-Sally
Hello, could you please lay off of my friend Mr. A. He has never done anything wrong to you or anyone. He has been nothing but kind to everyone. He is a wonderful friend. So saying this things to him or about him is very awful and mean- spirited.

@Mr. A
I and all of our friends are holding your hand. Please pay no mind to any negativity here. Those negative posts could never make it true. Talk with me anytime you want or need. I'm here. All of our friends are here for you and we love you very much.

@All
I am sending plenty of love and blessings to every single person here always. Honestly, none of you will ever be left out in my heart.

This is it!   July 12th, 2010 9:13 pm ET

A sadness and pain,
exposed to the world,
Tears are streaming,
emotions being hurled,
A laughter gone limp,
a smile gone lost,
A memory embeded,
for what was the cost?
A life with a purpose,
a man with a cause,
A plead to the world,
for a healing because,
A skip in his walk,
a twinkle in his eye,
A blessing to the world,
for the man that did try

Bless You All~

~We all cry the same tears for Michael~


doubtingthomas2010   July 12th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

@Caitie- there has been a turn in events, I don't want to mention it too much here, do you listen to Carlotta Chatwood??? If not, you should check her out.


Mary-Jane   July 12th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

@ Susan62509 July 12th, 2010 5:37 pm ET

That quote of Michael's is inspirational.

It reminds me of Kahlil Gibran ..... "Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto.love".....

"But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance
between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond
of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between
the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from
one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat
not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but no into each
other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain
your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near
together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow
not in each other's shadow."

--Kahlil Gibran

This reminds me of respect, admiration and freedom of individuality with those we love........

This can be obtained if we can trust ourselves with our emotions, have the maturity and inner security. This is Not handed on a silver platter, it must be addressed and strived for…It is not a destination but a continued passage...... a process of life. I work with this concept daily.

How have you been
Long time since I have seen you
How have you been
Maybe this place needs more pixie dust
Do you have any to spare


tinkerbell95   July 12th, 2010 10:16 pm ET

@simonsayslove

Hello I have been doing great. I agree this place could use some more pixie dust but many people here stopped believing in Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, Neverland, the Lost Boys, magic and love altogether.

When people stop believing little fairies get weak. Tinkerbell had to fly away to happier places so she could stay strong.😉
But I think I may have a some dust laying around for people like you. LOL

How are you doing?


Caitie:)   July 12th, 2010 10:25 pm ET

@ doubtingthomas2010

Really? Cool! If you get a response, are you able to keep me posted? I have a channel on youtube if you don't want to speak publicly, it's MJisALIVE7.

I WILL BE THERE!

TRUE-TO -YOU   July 12th, 2010 10:55 pm ET

if i can laugh then i am fine
no one can steal this smile of mine
no one will ever make me blue
for following my heart and being true
i will not hang my head in shame
i dont set out to cause any pain
i try to lift the spirits high
so on my carpet i love to fly
i take you all to the place i love
to the moon and stars up way above
but some cannot appreciate this
and try to destroy my special bliss
and as you know i like a dare
and with you all i will continue to share
and i will not back down from a fight
when i know and believe that i am right
i know the power of words unkind
and i always try to keep this in mind
and i know what the power of love can do
it can hug a heart and this is true
and when i say its all for love
i have been inspired by our angel with the glove
and to my king i will always be true
and there is nothing anyone can do
you get to see every part of me
cos thats the only way i can be
i will not say sorry for being who i am
like i will never stop believing in the man
and now its time for my magic flight
to find a star to wish upon tonight

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Thank you simon. Just doing my best. I want everyone to feel the love. You're a sweetie because you expressed this about the train. Yes, exactly Simon. There should be no division. Only unity.🙂 I'm sending lots of love hugs and blessings your way


Maura   July 12th, 2010 11:20 pm ET

Michael, I'm always thinking of you and how much I love you. I want to post this poem that I read today that made me think of you.

The Presence of Love
by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

And in Life's noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy.

You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulse's beat;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.

And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you.


"Pixie Dust "   July 12th, 2010 11:44 pm ET

simonsayslove and Maura,I totally agree everyone should be aboard the love train as we must all unite for the love of Michael.What a better way to do it than that.Sending many ( Smiles) your way.


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 12th, 2010 11:44 pm ET

divisions all around i see
if its all for love how can that be
the love train runs on love we know
so jump aboard and dont be slow
peace and love it is our mission
be true to michael it is his vision
come together fans unite
for truth and justice we will fight
we are the world you know its true
and the choice to save it is up to you
so once again do you dare
to make that change and show you care

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


Maura   July 12th, 2010 11:52 pm ET

@Pixie Dust
Yes a great idea that Simon has said.🙂 I hope everything is going well with you Pixie. I am sending smiles, love, hugs and blessings to you.

Why have we got 4 years to do it, to save the world.

Is this something to do with the Mayan Calendar and 2012.

Only God knows when the end of this world will be. Not even Jesus or the Angels know.

Please enlighten me someone. Thank you.

Jessie from Auckland,NZ,very good question you have,I wish I could enlighten you, but I have no answer.as you said God only knows.If it has anything to do with the Mayan calender and 2012.that could mean almost anything as people have so many different theories on the subject.Some believe this is when dooms day will occur,the end of.Some believe that there may be a new world order,some believe that this is just the end of the Mayan calender and a new one will start in 2012.These are just a few I have heard,to say who is right or who is wrong I really don't know.I honestly don't know if any of us really knows.As you said God is the only one who knows.and I shall leave it with that (Smiles) to you.

Susan62509-- Some people are only happy when they are attacking and bashing others. Simon is now picking on Tay because he/she/it was not having any fun attcking/bashing me because I ignored them. Susan have yu and others just reading noticed that many posters here are posting under 2 or more names? It is pretty bad when posters have to come in under other names just so they can have someone to talk to and interact with. The blogs have become a laughing stock. Some on here have not a clue what the word LOVE means.


LoveConquersAll   July 13th, 2010 1:19 am ET

@ ibelieve25
Nice to see you, my friend! I tried posting the other night as well but was not successful. I will see you again soon, I'm sure...Thank you for your thoughts. Love and Hugs to you!

@ "Pixie Dust"
Hello there. Smiles to you, my friend!

@ Jessie from Auckland, NZ
The year 2012 has been noted as the end of the world due to interpretations of predictions contained in the Mayan calendar. Some believe cataclysmic events will take place. Others believe that the world will not end, but instead humanity will enter a new age, marked by significant changes physically and mentally. Its all up to God's will. Hopefully this information is helpful in answering your question. And yes, I strongly agree "God is Love".
Much Love to you!


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 13th, 2010 1:29 am ET

@marg my friend so true

This is it!   July 13th, 2010 6:04 am ET

Gently was placed,
the heart upon stone,
exposed to the world,
tribulation and pain shown,
A cry called out,
in its time of need,
will you be there,
from the heart it pleads,
Lonely was the cold,
afraid was the pain,
Dampened by the sorrow,
iced by the shame,
The eye's held judgement,
the mouth carried swords,
The loving heart weeped,
from the vicious awards,
The blaze ran high,
the torture laid deep,
The man in the mirror,
laid down to sleep

Bless You Michael~

After 4 years the damage we have done to this planet would be irreversible according to 'scientific research'. Nothing to do with church or God...like this blog is nothing to do with church, or apparently Michael Jackson.
How about MICHAEL JACKSON??!! Enough of the church sermons...I believe in God but I come here to blog about Michael Jackson, not for sermons and LOVE fests...from the posts and those here ALL THE TIME contributing NOTHING, it begs the ? why are you all here?????
It is pathetic reading these blogs...try it sometime and see how much Michael is nonexistent. And this is why all credible bloggers have left....with the exception of Susan and occasionally Suzie Q...look what you all have done to Michael's blog...to his legacy! If he could see this disgrace he would cry.
***************************************************************************
"Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.

Soaring carbon emissions are already causing ice-cap melting and threaten to trigger global flooding, widespread species loss and major disruptions of weather patterns in the near future. "We cannot afford to put off change any longer," said Hansen. "We have to get on a new path within this new administration. We have only four years left for Obama to set an example to the rest of the world. America must take the lead.""

Thank you so much for answering my question and beautifully said. 🙂🙂
It is intriguing alright. Yes, we are living in interesting times. Need to keep our ears and eyes open I think. God bless.


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 7:55 am ET

Susan
That is such a sweet quote...and Michael was referring to REAL love and not the word 'LOVE' splattered all over like the meaning has been lost yet the combination of letters still speaks with substance.
This place really has become the abyss...see you when the care resumes...hopefully there will be more justice for Michael in the courts than he is being shown here.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Rock With You Horsegirl:
Thank you for your explanation. You are a very loving person and honest. I respect you for your qualities.

Caitie:):
Michael's insight and visions were extraordinary. I so wish that his writings and poetry would become more visual to the world. This would create a better understanding of him to those blinded by tabloids.

Simon Says:
Funny person you are.

Marguerite:
I agree with your 1:10 a.m. comment. The posting under 2 or more names has been ongoing for many months. One name will cycle out after a few months, then come back or post under a different name. Most people have a limited vocabulary so identifying the same repetitive words, writing style, and sign off line creates a habitual pattern difficult to break yet easy to spot. Being dishonest and deceiving to their virtual friends is definitely not love. If I understand Sybil-Sally's posts correctly, IMO, this is what she/he is trying to convey to the bloggers so they won't get hurt. The double and triple names being used by the same person should quit the blog and become a politician. lol


Susan62509   July 13th, 2010 9:10 am ET

PixieDust:
Michael's quotes are fabulous to read and stimulates a person to stop and think. He was brillliant. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have sat down and had conversation with him?

Mary-Jane:
Thank you for posting Kahlil Gibran's writings. I enjoy his philosophy of allowing space between love, relationships, etc. as holding on too tightly smothers the other out. We all need a chance to breath. I think someone has you confused with Dodie. Dodie posted on the MJ blog for awhile a few months back. She primarily likes the CNN political sites. She is well versed and knows her government and history extremely well.


The Rose   July 13th, 2010 10:19 am ET

A million times we've needed you,
A million tears we've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone;
Part of us went with you,
The day He called you home.

Grief cracks your heart into little pieces and it hurts so very much, and while I am finding it difficult to say goodbye, I must not forget that this was his destiny and part of the bigger plan that GOD has for all of us. "Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, But I'd have had to miss the dance". You did it Michael, you studied the greats and became one of the greatest, you are a universal legend who achieved immortality.

There is only one true hero and that is God, to divest himself of this earthly body and walk with Him in truth and love, he has most certainly found his greatest joy. My hope is that when Michael entered into eternal sleep he was in divine bliss, he deserved nothing less.

It's all for love......

Since 69'

Jessie from Auckland, NZ July 13th, 2010 12:12 am ET

@

Why have we got 4 years to do it, to save the world.

Is this something to do with the Mayan Calendar and 2012.

Only God knows when the end of this world will be. Not even Jesus or the Angels know.

Please enlighten me someone. Thank you.
____________________

I asked that once and the answer I got was that President Obama had just been elected to office and that Michael felt Obama might not be re-elected . So his term would be four years. So we had only four years to make it right.

Mary-Jane   July 13th, 2010 1:14 pm ET

Carrie & Susan

There is no one person, like President Obama, who has that kind of power…to save our planet. We all must unite. We all must take the responsibility!!!

We can no longer pass the “responsibility” off to a government agency. We cannot continue down this destructive path! All of us, including myself, continue to stick our heads in the sand….. Now if you stick your head in the sand, it will be covered in oil. Michael was a visionary; he could see this……

How much longer before we see this?

How much longer will we allow corporations to devastate our beautiful planet?

I ask everyone… What will it take for us to unite????


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 13th, 2010 1:24 pm ET

yes they put michael on trial
1993 and 2005 was so vile
accusations so unture
but they could not destroy the love for you
how many asked the question why
how much does it take to lie
instead some thought to question you
something i could never do
the tabloids and media i paid them no heed
for salacious gossip i have no greed
the only hungar that i know
is the truth in my heart and thats what i show
innocent but some walked away
what kind of friends are they i say
not the kind to believe in you
a very hard way to find out to
they should have known right from the start
a true friend would know your golden heart
they would be there for you and never hide
no egos or no foolish pride
the only pride that would be on show
would be the pride to stand by the man they love and know

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


Maria Copelli   July 13th, 2010 2:11 pm ET

MJ Tomb - Defaced with Hidden Messages

7/13/2010 12:15 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned Michael Jackson's tomb has been defaced by a stealth band of vandals - who have marked the walls of MJ's mausoleum with hidden messages ... and it's all in permanent ink.

Security at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA is on the lookout for "fans" who have been writing messages in hard-to-spot places outside the main window of the building in which MJ is entombed.

The writing is mostly hidden underneath ledges - or in spots covered by bushes - and contains messages like, "Miss you" and "Keep the dream alive."

Reps at Forest Lawn are pretty ticked off - telling TMZ, "Activity such as this, is a prime example why we are evaluating the level of access to the various entrances of the Great Mausoleum."

Forest Lawn also tells us that anyone caught vandalizing the cemetery will be banned for life.
******************************************************************************
"Fans"...of whom? They wanted their mark there but how is that respectful to Michael?? Much like these blogs...who are the posts really for???

Rest in peace sweet Michael...hopefully the trial will bring you justice.


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 3:24 pm ET

Suzie Q!!!
I hope you are well! I KNOW you are rocking to some Michael music every day!! I am taking BC on her first plane ride!! Nervous doesn't begin to describe how I feel!
Hey...we are here for Michael and he needs you here to keep him relevant and to watch out for his legacy!! Every time I want to just can this place I think of Michael and how so many turned their backs on him when others were using him for their own selfish needs, like here...it just makes me sad for how he lived. I hope that trial produces what justice that the law allows which is a travesty of justice.
Anyway, cheers to you my love Suzie Q!!!!
We have the truth!
We will always be there for our Michael!!!!
RIP Sweet Michael.


tinkerbell95   July 13th, 2010 4:18 pm ET

No I do not think we have met before nice to meet you also.


maryrm   July 13th, 2010 4:29 pm ET

babycarie July 13th, 2010 3:13 pm ET
these so called fans would probably be some of the same ones that didn't let Michael go out in public and enjoy life. the ones that he would have to throw a pillow to begging for some time to sleep. They don't love Michael, they obsess over him. They probably don't even realize they are some of the people who made his life hell.


Maria Copelli   July 13th, 2010 4:50 pm ET

Tinkerbell! Good to see you,you always bring a smile to my face! Stay right on that 'shoulder'! Love Maria c.


Beverly - Chicago   July 13th, 2010 5:23 pm ET

Someone on the blog earlier today asked why are we all here (in reference to the bloggers she disapproves of) and I jusr wanted to say that it should be evident why we are all here. It is for Michael and it is as simple as that. I just do not agree with how some bloggers feel that their posts are more relevant to Michael. All the posts about Michael are relevant. Everyone is here in unity for Michael and some have different ways of expressing their unity or belief in what his "death" entailed or their devotion to him and that may be through references to God or Jehovah or religion or poems or rhymes or in a variety of ways – all of which have their place. No one here should be able to dictate what goes on the blog as long as it is not profanity or ridicule or abuse. What some need to learn is tolerance and acceptance. If you don't agree with something posted on the blog you need to just accept the fact that not everyone in life is going to behave exactly how you think they should behave or believe in exactly what you believe in. Just continue posting what is in your heart and what you, yourself, believe in and allow others to have the right to do the same.

Michael would want his fans to be in harmony, not disharmony.
We should be trying to practice in our own lives and showing by example on the blog of the message that Michael was trying to convey to the world. Let's show him that his efforts were successful and really meant something to the world. All it takes is a little understanding and empathy.


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 13th, 2010 5:33 pm ET

i dont think i will call myself a fan
i am a delusional believer of the man
cos certain fans just like to trash
and think the family is there to bash
and they are the ones who have no clue
headless chickens i will call you
you hang on all the media hype
when believers know its full of tripe
you want to believe in all they say
you think michael would really die this way
all it needs i for you to open your eyes
this cocktail of drugs smells like lies
but then again if this is true
why is the doctor free like me and you
come on now he killed the king
but he is free to keep on practising
and it seems the media cant keep him in sight
that reminds me is it black or white
and it seems everyone has a story to tell
but not coordinating them very well
coincidences there has been more then a few
does that not set alarm bells off for you
still some wont keep an open mind
the real truth they will not find
we all want the truth to prevail for our king
thats why i believe in L.O.V.E and in him
and justice yes that will come to
thats why to michael i am true
so there you have it a believer i be
and i believe that the truth will set him free
so dont ever say that i dont care
its all for love i will be there

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 5:40 pm ET

Oh, please!!!
It has NOTHING to do with tolerance and acceptance...it has to do with relevance! Michael Jackson is the reason? Then where in the posts is he relevant??!!
Sermons are a way of dictation...something to ponder.
'Michael would want'...he would want 'fans' to accept his death and look to justice!
This is not a love feat, and blogs are supposed to be about the topic, and not love fests and virtual friendships!


LoveConquersAll   July 13th, 2010 5:42 pm ET

“And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face... and the world we once believed in will shine again in grace. Then why do we keep strangling life wound this Earth, crucify its soul. Though it's plain to see, this world is heavenly. We could be God's glow... Heal the world.” ~ Michael Jackson

Michael had deep faith in God and his adherence to traditional values was an inspiration to all us, especially young people searching for something real to believe in.


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 5:43 pm ET

And it has nothing to do with bloggers I disapprove...it has EVERYTHING to do with MICHAEL JACKSON!!! These blogs have been abused for selfish reasons and it is sickening...and THAT is what I am referring to!!!


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 5:47 pm ET

'dictating'...
And please all...plead for Mr. A to some back...that is so relevant and about Michael Jackson!!!

Very well-stated post! My sentiments exactly.

“Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.”

@still me just a new name .... the 4 years issue is not so easy to "sort out", however I do NOT think it's about BO being or not re-elected.
It really makes no difference at all if it will BO or someone else.
The "work" has started already, you only have to look around you.
And if you are in the US, just look down to the Coast ...

The key to unlock the right door towards a future of freedom and happiness might be indeed LOVE, that pure, true love for each other, for nature, for everything in the Universe, in one word ... for God!

But it's difficult, it's difficult because we should succeed to detach ourselves from the daily routine, from our small little daily worries, from our daily survival battle, from all those things we were taught are right and true (but are actually not), to be able to brake free from the matrix we live in, etc. Easy to say, hard to do ... I know😦


tinkerbell95   July 13th, 2010 7:16 pm ET

SuzieQ   July 13th, 2010 8:19 pm ET

Carie!!!!!!!! Hi Sweetheart! Missed you. Haven't been here in a while ... this summer has been hectic – nothing that I can discuss on a public blog mind you, but believe me, it's been hectic...

My son and I are well. How have you been, and the little cutie? You're taking my cyber goddaughter on a plane without my permission? I hope it's for vacation. May be you're heading to Canada? 🙂 Wherever you're going, I hope you have a great time!

About these fans who defaced MJ's tomb, OMG! I can sympathize with the pain and the feeling of loss, but this is going too far. Obsession is unhealthy, even when the object is Michael Jackson. As you said so many times before, Michael deserves some peace and some respect, and it seems he can't get it, not even from those who say they love him, the fans ... I wish they would let him rest in peace.

Thinking alot about MJ lately, missing him. When I watch the news and see what a mess this world is, I always wish Michael was still here. This world needs more Michaels ...😦

Love and hugs to you and Baby!


Rebeka Davis - Recife - Brasil   July 13th, 2010 8:20 pm ET

Multiply Love

That our hands may be carriers of peace ...

From petting ...

Of affection ...

Which flows from them the clearest feelings ...

of balms ...

relief ...

strength ...

light ...

That may be in the sprawling wasteland ..

making love sprout between people ..

Multiplying each of us better essence ..

Making us stronger when the storm ..

Letting us see the sun rising ..

That breaks the night ...

What is being done day ...

Which makes beautiful ...

Which makes life!

What is called love ...

It was not me who wrote those words, I do not have the vocation to write, but I think words are so true ... Beautiful

I want you, my friends, feel the love that I send, you are always in my heart
I am sending my love to all bloggers, everyone, believers and non believers ... Everyone who agrees to receive my love ... without discrimination or prejudice, no barriers ... That's what Michael taught me

L.O.V.E

God bless you all ... Always


Maria Copelli   July 13th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Rebeka ,Beautifully stated ,and I Thank you ! Love you my sister ,Maria C.

@ALL,when we show concern ,or empathy ,or consideration ,to each other ....we in turn dignify one another ! This is what some did not give to Michael! I ask ,can we here make that 'change?'
We all have our own reasons for continuing to be here ,We should feel welcomed ,not belittled ,or accused ,or called names. These things can hurt deeply ,cant they?
When we take the time to Lovingly encourage one ,to 'stay' or 'Please come back' ,just maybe it is because we value that individual ,and see the Love they have displayed here .And in such a sometimes Loveless world ,dont we need ones who are kind ,and caring ,around us.They are sort of like embers in a fireplace on a cold snowy night! Some of us are drawn to such ones!
So I will conclude by saying ,as for me ,I would rather be around those who are kind,caring ,loving ,considerate ,than those who are unpleasant ,and rude !
That is just me.
And when I read hurtful comments ,it hurts me ...deeply. Lets learn from Michael's life this one thing .....L.O.V.E. Thank you Moderators! Maria C.


helen   July 13th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

The writing's on the wall – that's for sure! LOL. Oh what a circus....oh what a show!

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

Lots of love and MJ hugs to all! 😛


Rhonda   July 13th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

I have not ever once came on this blog and disrespected Michael or his family. Do I agree with everything they do.......No, I don't......But I will not tear them down for it either.......They are doing what they think is best for Michael......Did Michael not show all kinds of walks of life love.....Yes, he did.....He cares deeply for everyone.......Why do you think he wants to help heal the world, the children, the sick and the devastated. Because that is LOVE.....It doesn't matter to me if it is in real life or virtual life. If I can reach out my hand to someone and say let me be there, let me hold your hand, maybe to just talk and share experiences with each other, to maybe help change someone's life, to show support when they need it most. It comes from the heart and that is what Michael is about. His heart and his soul are the biggest part of him and he showed it all the time, no matter how down he is or was...So, if coming on here and giving love, a hug, a kiss, support, or just to sit and listen, then that is what I will do......I have a lot of friends on this blog and off this blog and there is nothing that I would not do for any of them if they need me too. Virtual or not......Sometimes virtual friends do meet......And it can be the best friendship you have ever had.....or will have....You do not know that some of the words spoken here are very hurtful to some and they do get hurt.....Just because they are behind a screen does not mean that you don't touch their hearts......I am not bashing or attacking anyone and I never have....But I do speak my mind and I will defend my friends and Michael to the end.....Michaels saying in bad....you are throwing stones without your hands.......UNITED WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.......DIVIDED WE WILL FAIL.......AND WHEN I SPEAK THE WORD LOVE, IT MEANS LOVE, NOT JUST A WORD TO ME, BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT I SAY, COMES FROM MY HEART............MUCH LOVE

@Rebeka davis:

Hi Rebeka, I hope you are doing well and thank you for what you posted because it was truly beautiful. We needed that tonight!
Love, Beverly

@Maria C: 9:42 PM:

I agree with what you have stated 100% I'm sure quite a few others feel the same way. I just feel that we should always encourage our fellow bloggers and people in general to be positive and loving toward each other and to show some understanding. I've said this before and I will say it again as a reminder to everyone that the answer is really so simple. "L.O.V.E." really is the answer! Just show some love and compassion and understanding toward each other. These are not just words to be thrown out lightly, but principles to be put into everday practice. You will see some astonishing and positive results in your life if you do put them into practice. Some people "get it" and some people "don't". I just hope that someday they do.
Love to my sister who DOES "get it"! Beverly

@Letta(IbeLIEve):

Hi Letta:

How are you? I hope you are feeling well and your treatments went ok. I just haven't seen you on the blog in the last two days and wanted to make sure you are ok because you are missed.

Love and Hugs, Beverly

TRUE-TO -YOU   July 13th, 2010 11:12 pm ET

@rhonda my friend so true

with what you say i will agree
you talk a lot of sense i see
this blog is for michael who we all adore
but some just want to create a war
do they not understand the heart of him
and all the pain that this must bring
have they never listened to a word he has said
it does not matter if you believe he is alive or dead
he wants his fans to unite
but some still just want to fight
come together will you be there
listen to the words and care
instead of being filled with spite
just fill your heart with love tonight
and rhonda i agree with you
defend our king you know i am true
but on this blog the games they play
make many people walk away
its cowardice and thats not right
to take another name to fight
and just like you i speak my mind
and in just this name i think you will find
and rhonda may i be so bold
i will take your hand to hold
its all for love lets lead the way
and maybe more will join today

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free


Rhonda   July 13th, 2010 11:14 pm ET

@Maria
Thank you Maria
Michael loves every one
Believer's or non
It does not matter to him
But I can tell you this
He is hurting because of all of this
This is not what Michael would do
He would stand here and tell everyone
It's All For LOVE.......L O V E
Try it
It might just change the way you feel

UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL

Much Love


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 11:17 pm ET

Funny...all the LOVE yet no one acknowledges the little girl who needs a bone marrow transplant.
And I also find it funny how the word LOVE is abused here...over and over again.
I would much rather see honesty and bravery within the posts with relevancy to Michael Jackson than a bunch of fluff full of nothingness.
I do not lack love...quite the contrary, but that is not what these blogs are designed for...church is for God and your own personal place is for all you love fests.. Virtual friendships can be carried on in chat rolls and on private blogs, not ones designated for Michael Jackson, and I am perplexed by why this is an outrageous statement.
It really amazes me how Michael Jackson blogs have become some bizarre love fest about this Mr. A who admitted that these blogs are for Michael Jackson.
Michael is being used here much like he was used throughout his life...and that is what I have been saying all along.
These blogs are for Michael...and those who see this as lacking love, then maybe you are the ones who need to reevaluate.
FYI...being a fan of Michael does not automatically sign one up for family loyalty...please!
Suzie Q!!
I will see you soon! Keep Michael in your heart! That damned trial will be happening soon...things have been very eerily quiet. Hopefully that is a good thing??
Love to you and you son!
I hope you are having a delightful summer!
Not Canada....that would be a just me trip!!! 🙂
Love and v-hugs to you!
And I really mean that!
RIP sweet Michael.


babycarie   July 13th, 2010 11:25 pm ET

MaryRM
OMG!! You are so right! They are EXACTLY the type who stole Michael's life...felt like they had the right to touch him and run after him and invade him...like they owned him. They were more concerned about leaving THEIR mark than paying respect to Michael. Just disgusting. Pleased to see you here!!


Rhonda   July 13th, 2010 11:34 pm ET

Yes, I heard about the little girl who needs a bone marrow transplant and my prayers go out to her and her family and I am hoping with all my might that they get a match real quick.

I am not sure about any love fest....Confused on that one.

As for as Mr. A is concerned, he is missed because of his beautiful heart and soul that he would share with everyone. Never an ugly phrase came from his mouth. He always has something kind to say and he is truly a Michael fan....

Do I miss him, yes I do...more than what I can say.....Am I going to beg him to come back....No, I am not......He is grown and he can make that decision on his own. With all the hate that has been thrown at him, I would not blame him if he didn't......Such hateful and cruel things to say and the people that did call themselves fans....I dont see how that can be.....

But please let me state this......

MICHAEL IS THE ONE THAT IS ALL ABOUT LOVE AND LOVE IT SHALL BE.......

MUCH LOVE

@Maria C
It's great to hear that you are enjoying your new computer. Keep the cat away from the keys? Does the cat like to mess with your computer? That's not good....hopefully the kitty will play with some cat toys instead.

@Rhonda
I agree with your post at 10:04. I think you can show love through the virtual world or out in life. And I know that when you say love you are truly genuine. I always feel it. I'm the same way...I don't say it if I don't mean it. Love can transcend through everything. Thank you for the post Rhonda.

@Timeless
Hello Timeless, I'm glad that your post got through. I hope everything has been going well with you lately.

Lots of love and blessings to all three of you

This is it!   July 14th, 2010 6:11 am ET

For one to live in the darkness,
with no light to ever shine,
Eventually hardens the heart,
in all due given time,
It never see's no happiness,
in all beauty that surrounds,
The glass is always half empty,
never half full to be found,
Life's daily simple challenges,
become torture battles within,
It fears the human love,
it torments the soul thru the skin,
It is fed by all negativity,
it's that thread that spools its size,
Chaos glazed with drama,
becomes very precious to its eye's

Bless You All...with eye's to see the light~

You talk L.O.V.E all day long, then you show your true colors in a rhyme. This is why you're not credible.

And by the way everybody, have you ever had too much of a desert? Too much sweet gives you a stomach ache doesn't it? This is what this blog has become. Too "sweet". The self-righteousness on this blog is nauseating. Carie is right: for most here, it isn't about Michael. It's about YOU!

Maria Copelli – July 13th, 2010 12:25 pm ET

Thank you always for your encouraging and inspirational words. Yes, I would agree that Michael was mild-mannered, but I also think that he was a fighter/warrior, which I mean in the best sense of the word, in that he was not aggressive. He fought for what he believed in.

Where you mentioned......... "we need to be reassured this 'system ; will be ending not the world".......... I have also come to the conclusion I think, that the Bible can be taken both literally and also symbolically or in code. Like you have to crack the code sometimes.

God bless.

Yes, I have come across a few variations on this in my researching too. We can probably read different things into it.


babycarie   July 14th, 2010 8:08 am ET

Rhonda
I do not mean to offend...just be Michael's voice. These blogs have been abused for a long time and they are supposed to be for Michael Jackson. If you feel that way about Mr. A, then I hope he/she emails, or better yet calls/visits you. All the long posts and irrelevant childish rhymes chatting to each other with disregard to Michael Jackson....over and over...that is the love fest I refer to, in addition to the days of posts to this Mr. A, ...seriously, I have nothing against this person, and if you all want to start a blogs for this person wonderful, but this place is for Michael Jackson. Some banter is to be expected but posts after posts having nothing at all to do with Michael...that is not fair to Michael or to his legacy.
******************************
Michael Jackson hated to be used...he wanted to be loved unconditionally...and to use his blogs for chat rolls and self fulfilling reasons is not giving this man unconditional love. This has nothing at all to do with acceptance or understanding...it gas to do with relevance for and respect for Michael Jackson.

I do not feel that wanting and hoping for this blog to be about Michael Jackson is asking something outlandish...I mean seriously!! Speak to his music, his dance, some funny stories found...all of that would be a pleasure to see here. But to say that these blogs are for whatever people feel like using them for...NO, they are not! Michael Jackson deserves better!

And the word LOVE is just a bunch or letters unless there is heart felt meaning behind them...and to profess love and exhibit something else is paradoxical...especially when stating the word in anger.


babycarie   July 14th, 2010 8:18 am ET

"The Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California have extended an olive branch to Forest Lawn Cemetery - where MJ is buried - offering to clean up the recent wave of hidden vandalism outside the singer's tomb ... before the cemetery decides to ban MJ fans altogether.

A rep for the group - which organizes a monthly pilgrimage to MJ's burial place - tells TMZ, they want to "fix this mess" so FLC doesn't associate MJ's upstanding fans with a bunch of sharpie-wielding hoodlums.

As TMZ first reported, Forest Lawn is currently on red alert over the illegal doodles - hunting down the artists responsible ... and threatening to ban any potential copycats for life.

No word if Forest Lawn will take the fan group up on their offer."
***********************************************************************************
Good for them!!
Horrible how the tomb was defaced...is that 'love'?? As MaryRM and stated that type of 'fan' is the reason Michael did not have a life,,,'fans' thinking they could just deface him like his tomb. Sad.

LoveConquersAll   July 14th, 2010 1:02 pm ET

For me, anything that symbolizes LOVE "mirrors" Michael Jackson and his message. Yes, this blog should be about his music, his dance and his magic, but we cannot forget to embrace Michael Jackson, the man.

We cannot deny how much "unconditional" love meant to him, however, don't you think we are putting "conditions" on love that is to be shared because we have to restrict ourselves from showing love to each other.

We don't know for sure how Michael would respond to some of things posted, it is not up to us to know this. All we know is his message about love, spreading and sharing it. Love can be expressed in many ways and varies with everyone. Not everyone has an ulterior motive. It's so easy to try and define what someone is saying on the surface, but its what lies beneath that counts the most – what is heartfelt and sincere.

Preaching LOVE is a simple task, Giving it is a real testament.

God is for church but is in everything for me. God exists in my heart, in music and in the beauty of seeing someone smile because of a little kind word or gesture. That's truly what it is all about.

Shannon has my support and my thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family. May God be with this little angel.

Love and Peace to Everyone!


TRUE-TO -YOU   July 14th, 2010 1:14 pm ET

@pixie dust my friend so true

maybe this time i dont see double
but on this blog there is a lot of trouble
when i went someplace to chat
pc hacked and ip tracked
so now so cautious i have to be
cos someone likes to steal id
an innocent smile they will give to you
becareful my friend of what they do
not many smiles i can send today
a virus keeps on coming to play
maybe i seek advice from you
do you think the police could help poor true
so there you go make up your mind
becareful who you trust do not be blind

@suzie q
dont talk to me about love and care
you and your friend have none to share
think back in time and you will see
just how mean you both can be
everyone you have abused
so dont point the finger at me and accuse
i dont set out to cause people pain
but can you and your friend say the same
you have mocked everyone that has posted here
can you hear me loud and clear
you have called them names treated them like dirt
dont you know how deep some you have hurt
now why do you do this let me see
cos some believe and you do not agree
do you want me to list the names you have said
all because we believe he is not dead
and please do not ever post my way
i have nothing more to you to say
a hypocrite i will not be
i dont sit down with misery
at one time i really did try and that suzie is not a lie
but you me and your friend will never see eye to eye

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

babycarie   July 14th, 2010 3:57 pm ET

I believe in God and understand Her message, but this is a blog and not church so the long winded sermons disregarding Michael is not in keeping with Michael Jackson.
Love cannot be truly given on a blog...that is 'virtually' impossible as the meaning can never be anything other than typed words....the meaning is just surface as we do not really know who types the letters of the word...as wise Susan stated .we can be anyone on these blogs and be someone totally different in 'reality.'
No...we will never know what Michael would think or want here because he is dead, but to those who feel they would know what Michael would want which is using the word LOVE over and over and wasting blog space with nothingness, I counter that with his wanting his fans to fight for his justice and to be his voice and to not waste his legacy with
posts that do him a disservice.
Chat rolls were developed for chatting...blogs are for the topic, and these blogs are for Michael Jackson.
That this is so difficult to grasp and respect really is confusing to me, especially since I assume we are all adults...but then again, we do not really know who we are!!


"Pixie Dust "   July 14th, 2010 4:34 pm ET

mariam   July 14th, 2010 4:40 pm ET

Hi all,
I wanted to believe for the past year that he is not dead then with the anniversary ikinda absorbed it. Even after ackowledging this i still have a gut feeling that he's alive. Can someone from the jackson family show us a picture of what happened in the mosoleum. There are still many believers like myself who won't accept the fact that hes gone. Honestly id rather not.


Maria Copelli   July 14th, 2010 5:14 pm ET

Jessie ,good to see you here ! PLease know I agree with you ,some is Literal ,some symbolic for sure ! Point well taken .....thank you for the good vibes and Love you bring here Jesse,maybe I will see u on the new blog! OH and I absolutely agree ,Michael wore his beautiful 'rhino skin' ,when he had to ,how else could one survive? L.OL. One can be polite ,mild mannered ,well mannered ,considerate ...and still get the job done! Thank you Jessie! Love to you Maria C.


SuzieQ   July 14th, 2010 8:23 pm ET

Keep showing your true colors. It's all for love L.O.V.E. I'm sure .... I'll keep saying what needs to be said on this blog and I know my friend will do the same. Some things just need to be said. If they offend, well, tooooooo bad!


Rhonda   July 14th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

@carie
I do not offend very easily. Everyone has the right to their own opinions.
I have always agreed with that. And as I have stated, we have had our differences, but I have not and will not attack or bash. I have never disrespected Michael or his family, because I could never bring myself to do that. I believe with all my heart that Michael has gone through enough in his life that he does not need none of this. And with everything that he went through and what everyone has seen him go through, there should be no reason what so ever for anyone to ever come on a blog about Michael and call someone the nasty and horrible things that they did on a Michael blog. I wonder if this person knows what that could do to a lot of people knowing that they said the same nasty and horrible things about Michael and they did it just like this person. Without any evidence or anything to back it up. Anyone that has every blogged in these blogs with knows that everything I state, I state from my heart. As for as saying love and hugs and all the other stuff no one seems to like.....Please let me try and explain again....Michael was nothing but pure LOVE. It was all he knew how to give and show and that is exactly what I am doing...So to me, yes I am all about Michael, because it is the love that I am trying to spread. We all need to unite as one and start worrying about this planet before it is too late, instead of worrying about who is posting about love...because this world is what needs our love the most. But I will not leave my friends defenseless and I will not abandon them either...Because that is exactly what people did to Michael...The lies, the hate, the betrayal, the back stabbing and that is exactly what is going on over here. People need to open their eyes and realize that they are hurting people and to me that is the most horrid thing someone can do because it goes against everything that Michael stands for. I still and will always have respect for you and alot of the others that come here. But as I stated, if i can help just one person by holding out my hand or saying I love you, then that is exactly what I will do......

UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL
SHOW THE LOVE AND SHOW IT HARD
LET MICHAEL KNOW THAT WE STILL CARE FOR HUMAN LIFE

MUCH LOVE

There is only LOVE, anything else is a separation from LOVE.


Maura   July 14th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

@LoveConquersAll
What you posted makes a lot of sense. I agree. I too think that anything about love represents Michael because that's what he's all about. The person he is inside is the most important. So, for this to be about Michael we have to show respect, love and compassion for one another. Michael believes in God and God is love. Thank you for your wonderful post. Lots of love, hugs and blessings to you.

God bless you Shannon and your family. I pray that a bone marrow transplant is found very soon.


babycarie   July 14th, 2010 10:11 pm ET

Rhonda
The difference...huge difference...is that Michael Jackson was a human being we 'knew'...he was the man we fell in love with because we got to know him....even if from a distance. We watched him shine and dance and laugh, then saw him cry and be attacked and abused and degraded and crushed. These are blogs, and not excusing horrific behaviors, it is not the same thing as what Michael had to endure, not by any means. To even compare is pretty ridiculous, and I say this in defense of Michael.
Michael was plastered all over the tabloids, he could not go out of his home...there is no comparison.
And I have stated my position very clearly...being a fan of Michael Jackson does not mean one has to be a fan of the family. The words 'hate' and 'bashing' are used as much as the word love...just an observation.
Take care Rhonda...life goes on and I for one am hoping for justice next month...justice for the senseless death of Michael Jackson.


babycarie   July 14th, 2010 10:26 pm ET

Mariam
Michael died June 25, 2009...and the family went to FL to pay their respects on the one year anniversary of Michael's death. That is the truth...that is the truth. Tweet Randy, Janet, any Jackson...you know the truth...and as hard as it is to process, Michael id dead.


Rhonda   July 14th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

@carie
I know what Michael went through...I saw it.....Everyone saw it...I am in no means comparing anything...I am just stating the fact that some came on a blog about Michael and brought up something that should have never been said in the first place......No one will ever go through what Michael has......There is no comparison when it comes to Michael. I was just saying it should not have happened to anyone.....I am by no means being ridiculous either.....There has never been a time that I have not and will not defend Michael....I would go around saying love than I would the hateful and nasty things that are being said on this blog......Not something Michael was about....

Maria Copelli   July 14th, 2010 10:57 pm ET

Rhonda ,My heart is with yours,I really relate to all that you shared fro your heart! When my brother died this past spring ,it was the Love ,yes the Love and many hugs ,I received right here 'virtually' that overwhelmed me ,and brought me to my knees ,to feel so much pure Love ,from complete strangers ,I may never meet ,I have never ever even seen! So oh my goodness ,please know one can 'Feel it'! I certainly did ! And one person ,who stood out to me ,who was so genuinely concerned ,among so many others was Mr A. Why ? Because I could feel his compassion ,his concern ,right over the 'Airways' so to speak. Yet he has been so accused ,and name called and hurt .....WHY?
I f any of you doubt that one cannot feel Love .....I am here to say that is not the case for some of us,that is not the case for me!
Sometimes we are lonely ,sad,had a rotten day ,someone was unkind or our Boss yelled at us,or we are flat broke once again ,and then we come home,get our comfy clothes on ,pour a pot of tea and sit and come to this 'Special Place' where we can laugh ,cry ,hurt for Michael ....and in turn we can Care for one another.And isnt that what Michael would want? ,i am sure he too would enjoy going to a place where you can feel free ,talk ,laugh ,put your feet up wear your p.j's.,Laugh ,cry ,hug ,share ..read ....'Listen with ones heart ,and most of all............L.O.V.E If I didnt feel the Love for Michael here ,I wouldnt be here !
I say this with my heart ,it is full .....Love Maria C ,thank you for speaking up Rhonda ! smile.........

@True to you, I am Not Pixie Dust

I think finding REAL friends in the world is much more important. Michael wasn't able to create real friendships because he was forced into isolation. But to cry and dramatize a blogger is unhealthy.
Seriously...that is very unhealthy.
And of course the 'supporters' and 'enablers' will not state the truth.
To all who feel this place brings friendship that does not exist in you real world please look for real friendships.
And this is said with care.

Maria C and True to You,
Thanks for being there. Last summer when news broke out that MJ died I found out my husband was cheating on me. I was devastated but didn't want to hurt my kids and cheat back if you know what I mean. I decided to do something different I listened to his music and it was inspiring and empowered me to regain confidence in myself once more. There were two people I loved MJ and my husband and since he screwed up I turned to MJ. I visited the blog several times and read all there was to be read about him and sometimes prayed I would have someone as nice as him in heaven at least. I am glad that I used my anger in a positive way to learn more about MJ. He was a friend that I will treasure forever and thats why I want to believe that he is still alive.


Maria Copelli   July 15th, 2010 1:15 pm ET

Mariam ,Thanks so much for sharing from your heart ,and I completely empathize with you ! You see some feel real friends cant be made here ,but I must say ,I have met some wonderful People here !

Time is a good healer ,you will get by ,and look who has been there for you ,someone who knows true pain, publicly and yes privately ..Michael.
How wonderful for you to turn to him,and listened with your heart to his messages thru his lyrics his rhythms,his words ,! This was by far a much better way to help your mind and heart to heal from the pain you suffered!
I want you to know ,for sure many ,many people worldwide feel M.J. IS ALIVE. As we sift through questions unanswered ,and oddities ,we all will come to the answers that will invariably ,make sense to each one of us! I say dont close your eyes or your ears .Keep your heart opened ......and in time the Truth will'prevail' smile!. But before I go ,pleasse be reassured ,we are real people here ,with lives friends ,jobs ,families,,kids ,ups and down s fat thin Black .White,we are here for that wonderful Man ,and we come here because of our feelings for him,'dead' or 'Alive'.
Lastly I hoe to read comments from you again ,I can sense you are a sweet caring person ,and I am happy you are here with us! sorry for my typos! i send Love,/hugs to you ...be strong ! Mari C.


mariam   July 15th, 2010 3:16 pm ET

I think I've made a few friends too and hope to keep in touch through the blog. Thanks Maria your really nice talking to.


babycarie   July 15th, 2010 5:13 pm ET

And FYI...Michael died June 25, 2009...and that is the truth.


lois48   July 16th, 2010 8:22 am ET

@Rhonda – you are quite welcome. Some still don't get his message, dead or alive, whatever people believe. That is what is so sad about all of this and some just don't understand where many of us are coming from. I suppose in time and in growth and maturity people will really understand his HIStory.


Maria Copelli   July 16th, 2010 8:11 pm ET

lois48 ,'The message could'nt be any clearer ',we need to just take alook at ourselves...and make that change! Love maria C.

I guess this is directed to babycarie... THANK-YOU!!!!! I have read the things that you have written, and I must say that not only are you well-written, but you are so right about things. I agree with you wholeheartedly! Michael was not just surrounded by users and leaches, but sadly, most of his family do fit into that category, as well. Honestly, where were they when the "users and hangers on" were taking Michael for everything he was worth? They all talk, but we all know that Michael chose not to have anything to do with his family. He actually told his mother to throw Jermaine out of Hayvenhurst, a couple of times. They were definately not as close as Jermaine tries to covince himself. If Chris Brown was sincere, he has that right. If not, then just remember... what goes around, comes around. When it does, I think we will feel a breeze as Michael gets the last laugh. Also, about all of the "reports" that Michael faked his own death? I can honestly say that I wouldn't blame him! At least he could finally live, on his own terms. The kids are the ones who are going to suffer for the family's greed. Strange for people who could barely afford to buy groceries, huh? People thought that it was Michal who "tarnished" the Jackson name. I beg to differ. It is his family. If you check into his will and his trust, he remembered a couple of cousins and Tito's kids. What does this say and am I the only one who hears it?
