Michael Jackson fans call for Nobel peace prize nomination

Posted: 05:33 PM ET

Sean Michaels via

Michael & Tito JacksonMore than 15,000 people have signed petitions proposing Michael Jackson for the Nobel peace prize. Fans have taken to the web, hoping to encourage people to nominate the King of Pop for a posthumous award.

The first of the petitions was started by Norwegian fan Ola Hunnestad. Launched in April 2007, the petition has gained considerable momentum since Jackson's death on 25 June. Thousands more have backed the initiative of Los Angeles student Anneliese Nichole Brown, who two weeks ago drafted a letter to the Nobel prize committee.

"Michael's message for humankind has always been rooted in compassion and kindness," Brown wrote. "He has succeeded in a lifelong dedication to the well-being of humanity. Moving beyond all political, social and economic borders, Michael Jackson consistently spread a positive message of global unity, healing and love."

Well I think he certainly deserved to get one when he was alive, but I don't think he can now. Too sad.

Barbara Johnson   July 28th, 2009 5:42 pm ET

A well known prophet and evangelist in Nigeria asked for Micheal Jackson to fly to Nigeria so he could be prayed for and delivered, I wonder why those around him never followed up with such a serious request from the preacher? There are rumours that Micheal was involved in satanism is it true?

Cocovelvet   July 28th, 2009 5:48 pm ET

Thats a wonderful thing to do for MJ, .....but its unfortunate that he is not there anymore to receive it personally. His mother Katherine or the kids can receive it on his behalf.


Malaika Afrika   July 28th, 2009 5:51 pm ET

our KING OF POP is the most deserving person for the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

sarah   July 28th, 2009 6:01 pm ET

Michael deserved all the way... RIP MJ we miss u soo much.... Fans of MJ from Pakistan

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 6:01 pm ET

Yes people sign this petition for our Michael, King Of Pop

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 6:21 pm ET

Anyone knows the petition link?

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 7:02 pm ET

Thanks Adrienne

Toni   July 28th, 2009 7:29 pm ET

Hey, guess who? Hows our angels defense going, I haven't read up yet.
Babara I don't think this loving father of three was into satanism,however he sure was followed by it.
Just watch as much as I could stand on JVM. The more the good ol doc looks guilty, the more they trash Michael and make it look all his fault. Now their saying what KILLED him was years of drugs, that weren't necessarily given by doc.M, and itwas the diprivan that finally did it. So all and all it will be all MJs fault.

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 7:35 pm ET


They get on my nerve.

Toni   July 28th, 2009 7:39 pm ET

If they get on ours this bad, just think of bad they got on MJs and his families.

NINA YIRDAW   July 28th, 2009 7:41 pm ET

No that does not make sense . Although they are trying to say it is all MJ's fault for taking the drugs, there were a whole bunch of Docs involved in the murder of Michael Jackson for smugling these drugs in Michael's body for decades. I think DEA's and FDA's regulation are powerful enough to prorate and justify the meds that were falsely supplied to Michael Jackson years before. Overall all the people who washed their hand with Michael Jackson blood should get their share of punishment for their wrong doing. I don't think it is fair for Michael and his family for these traders to get away with these sad crime.

NINA YIRDAW   July 28th, 2009 7:44 pm ET

Adrienne: so what do I do after I went to the website for the petition??

NINA YIRDAW   July 28th, 2009 7:52 pm ET

We love you Michael. Every bit of you is something I'll always PRIZE!!!!

Michael Firestone   July 28th, 2009 7:56 pm ET

He gave more money and time than ANYONE 2 children. He should have gotten it before we lost him. After We Are The World he should have gotten a nobel prize.

Toni   July 28th, 2009 8:01 pm ET

Nina Yirdaw
Yes they should all pay,but I don't think they will {unfortunately}. It will kill me to see them get off, but God and Michael will be waiting at the golden gates for them, and I doubt they will be able to enter.

Ernest Bryant   July 28th, 2009 8:27 pm ET

Hello Mr. King,
I have waited until now to finally post my thoughts on the Michael Jackson tragedy. I am not surprised about the involvement of his "personal physician".

Given that I have made my livelihood in the surgical field for nearly 30 years; there are certain things that stand to reason. First, I have seen diprivan/propophol in use and I can tell you with a pretty fair amount of certainty, that it is not something that should be in use outside of the operating room and in certain situations, the ICU. And in all cases, it is used under the direction and careful and constant watch of an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist.

Patients receiving this medicine must have their airway monitored 100% of the time. There should be either a tube in their air passage or at the very least, someone there to squeeze an ambu bag to maintain airflow into their lungs.

The mere fact that his doctor "found him" in the room, not breathing, suggests that he left Michael unattended at some point. (A no-no)
So essentially, he abandoned his patient (another breach of protocol). Finally, why would a cardiologist have (propophol) an anesthetic? in his possession outside of a hospital environment. Even if he himself did not bring it into Mr. Jackson’s residence, common sense, and medical ethics should have dictated he not dispense this medication to Mr. Jackson.

In the bottom line, He definitely played a major part in killing Michael Jackson. Dr. Murray cannot even claim that it was given by someone else, especially if Michael was alive when Dr. Murray arrived at his home. You see, Propophol/diprivan takes on average 6 seconds before the patient loses consciousness There would be no way someone else could have given it to Michael prior to Dr. Murray arriving, and Michael not already been unconscious. I hope he spends a very long time in prison for breaking all kinds of medical protocols, all for the sake of money and ego.

daisy   July 28th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

this will be murray's defense:The Elvis-cocktail did it., not him giving the dipriva on MJ's last night. But, he looked great at rehearsal before he died that must account for somethng..

daisy   July 28th, 2009 9:04 pm ET

I will definitely sign the petition. I wish it could have been in his lifetime. He did so deserve it.

Gary Chandler in Canada   July 28th, 2009 9:06 pm ET

and poker should be an Olympic event!!!???
what a JOKE!!!

Luda   July 28th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Why do they always wait that the people die to do those things...
MJ will never know....

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 9:30 pm ET


Yes Michael will know. Believe me. He will know.:)

Dirty Diana   July 28th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

He may not know- but his family and children will. Good deeds are not for Michael anymore, but for the family he left behind.

Daisy   July 28th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Too little too late.

Lynn   July 28th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

This is a great idea. He will get some of the well deserved recognition he earned throughout his life.

lou7200 Tulsa   July 28th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

The only Nobel Prize MJ is qualified for is monetizing his way out of Pedophilia charges. On THAT he was a world class expert.

Don't deminish the Nobel Prize by mentioning it in the same sentence as this creep.

Jacquelyn   July 28th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

lou7200 Tulsa

*cough cough, hater alert. hater alert* Go to the Peter King blog he needs a friend to talk to. He might even take the thing out his mouth to speak to you. You class A jerk. Unless you already are Petey's lover. What you doing taking turns with Billy O. GTFOH

sarah   July 28th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

I agree with Jacquelyn ... Haters plzzzz don't say anything if u don't have anything nice to say okk. GET over it ok... FANS of MJ out numbered all Haters .....Let MJ have his peace which he didn't get when he was alive.... Atleast respect the dead .... Doctor Conrad is 100% guilty , he is the doctor he should know better if MJ asked for that drug why didn't he monitored it correctly ...Doctors supposed to safe lives not the other way around blaming the his patience .... I did sign up for that Nobel prize...MJ deserved that recognition .... Peace....

Reubena   July 28th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

If the vote were up to the people (and I'm talking worldwide – I'm from New Zealand) I believe MJ would receive the Nobel Prize. He is one of the few people in this generation that are truly worthy of it.

Debbie Totten   July 28th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Hello all yes I am going to sign It"s just a shame that he can"t be here to enjoy it It is sad to think that someone has to die before they get what they deserved while alive ande so much more michael you will always be my prize hey lou7200 tulsa what the hell are you thinking he was a very lonely man whit no childhood of his own that man did not do those things after all don"t we still have some childness in all of us I know I do peace to all Let"s try to make this world a better place It" s never to later If not for us then for the children after us

Lois   July 28th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

He definitely deserves it! – I have not been commenting due to the fact it is way too hot here (BC Westcoast), it almost hit 40C ....and the air is can't sit at the puter too much to read all the interesting comments...but I will once it cools down later in the week:) Keep up the fight for MJ....

Toni   July 29th, 2009 12:02 am ET

Hey Lois
I'm in Sask. and its been cool here all wknd and this week so far.

Reubena   July 29th, 2009 12:09 am ET

Dr Conrad needs to come clean as his story just does not wash! There are so many people and of course the Jackson family who are desperately waiting for the truth. I pray the truth comes swiftly.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 12:38 am ET

WOW, I guess I missed it. Good job telling him off. Just another jealous dude.

Thinker   July 29th, 2009 12:52 am ET

I believe he should. He did not only talk about it, he practiced it. Quincy Jones was angry with Micheal because he couldn't understand every time he went to Micheal's house there were blue eyed, white kids running around the house, he said in an interview with NBC Matt Lauer. I said to myself, what an ignorant man. Though he has so much money but yet his soul is not at peace. That is why Micheal should have a nobel price. He did not care whether someone was black, white, green or yellow. Heck, he even incorporate it into his songs. He was a man of action, a visionary and not a preacher. That is why he was my idol and we his fans respected and love him for that.

Question for Qunicy Jones though. Now that you know his children are blue eyed and white, what are you going to do about it? Very sorry you are still ignorant about such matters. But I still respect your work.

Emmy. Lalonde, in Belgium   July 29th, 2009 1:46 am ET

Hhay LARRY, thank you for this article, and an idea on making any petition for Michael Jackson tribute to get a noble prize winner 2010.
I have signed in a petition immediately, as it is a best way to us to tell Michael that we love him really very very dearly. It is also a very good idea that some people thinking about that contributions, to open such petition site for Michael Jackson to get the nomination of NOBLE prize winner, for 2010 as possible, after all what he did, in this real world. He was a champion of humanity, a unique person and a single fight fighter for humankind without any border of races or problems, just by his own will, that he absolutely approved. No one could make it totaly the same neither better, anymore, for yesterday, to day and tomorrow, honestly.. We all time very sad by his passing away, without a miracle to bring him back to alive, morely that he was giving us many happiness really.. Deep in our heart, mind and soul, he is still there. We could never forget Michael in ous life, mostly by his gentle behavior of humankind made by Michael, naturaly, a very best example for all of us all Human in this earth. We recoqnicing him deeply his kindess and activity for what he done for the community, beside we always love him, his talent trought all his very beautiful song, dances, intertainment, and so on, which made all of us very very happy to have him in this real world, seems that he is still alive, as one of our member of the family, so close to our soulem mind and heart. Im feeling deeply bad by his lost by his dead, unfortunately. May Lord blessed Michael Jackson always and GBU. CU.

Lori Quebec Canada   July 29th, 2009 1:47 am ET

Micheal deserves this and he should of got it when he was alive........he did so many good things for people and the world......does anyone have the link to the petition?

Emmy. Lalonde, in Belgium   July 29th, 2009 1:54 am ET

I am sorry, it is not for noble prize as I wrote but for noble peace prize.. YEEEEEEEEhhh. Thanks, GBU

Emmy. Lalonde, in Belgium   July 29th, 2009 1:58 am ET

Yess Lori, just read very well that article and click it on the word
#the petition# mentioned on it, then afrterwods you'll find it easier, automatically. Good luck.

Daisy   July 29th, 2009 2:03 am ET

Wait a minute...Quincy Jones married Peggy Lipton, who is blonde and blue eyed, so that makes no sense at all. I don't think Quincy Jones saw race at all. I think he is a great person. Listen to the Steve Harvey interview with mj on you utbe 2003. It is a very warm , touching interview. Mj talks about how proud and honored he was to be black . If anyone has any doubt , they should listen to the interview.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 2:14 am ET

Theres also a video at a black rally that MJ was speaking at not that long ago, and he said " I know i'm black, all have to do is look in the mirror". Quincy Jones of all people should have never doubted the vitaligo, or doubted Michael about anything.

Lori Quebec Canada   July 29th, 2009 2:18 am ET

thanks Emmy i'll try it........

lostemperor   July 29th, 2009 2:34 am ET

This feels a good thing to do. When I was busy signing, numbers showed, 6 others signed it too. I was perhaps #12,251 a few minutes ago to show the world that Michael deserves this 🙂

John   July 29th, 2009 2:40 am ET

That's too funny, that child molester deserved to be in jail!

Lena, Kiev, Ukraine   July 29th, 2009 2:41 am ET

Where's the link to sign, is there any? I didn't quite get it.
I'd rather MJ gets it than another "peacemaker" president

Toni   July 29th, 2009 2:47 am ET

What "peacemaker president"? Did I miss something. I must have slept through those years.

John   July 29th, 2009 2:55 am ET

MICHAEL JACKSON UNIVERSITY OF ARTS sounds like a good start.

Maureen (UK)   July 29th, 2009 8:58 am ET

Yes, Michael fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. Not only was he a Pop Icon, he spent his own precious time, energy and money, setting up or funding humanitarian projects for children all over the world. No other celebrity has done anything like that. He is a great example to the world and because he connected so well with people through his music, the Nobel Peace Prize would seem less elitist.

mariau   July 29th, 2009 9:04 am ET

He really deserves it.. absolutely deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

idzan ismail of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   July 29th, 2009 9:06 am ET

If Al Gore can get it, why not Michael Jackson,

Thanks for your really useful info on Profocol. Can't understand how anyone would use Profocol outside a hospital setting, it's too risky. I think what happened was immediately after the injection.
RIP Michael

advocacy initiatives and multi-million dollar charity efforts, Michael Jackson raised international awareness and support for some of the most complex and timeless issues confronting the human condition. AIDS, cancer, famine, homelessness, gang violence, racism, totalitarianism, environmental degradation, child abuse, violations of animal rights, restrictions on freedom of speech and other infringements upon basic civil liberties are just some of the difficult subjects Jackson tackled by leveraging the power of his celebrity. Michael Jackson’s intuitive understanding of the problems besetting the human ecological system was uncanny and uncharacteristic for any entertainer close to his magnitude.

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 11:27 am ET

Hey did you guys join Jacquelyn's blog yet? YahooGroups-We Love Michael Jackson-

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 11:31 am ET

I lost all respect for Quincy Jones when I heard him speak about MJ during a special that CBS had right after he died. He has alot of nerve saying anything about MJ not being comfortable in his own skin. Then he went to say some other derogatory things. He should talk, Yes he was married to Peggy Lipton, was involved with Nastasia Kinski. –Come on–Before he starts badmouthing Michael he needs to start looking in the mirror.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 11:31 am ET

Did you check out that website I just put on? Please do. It proves everything we have been saying>

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 11:31 am ET

Where is this link to sign the petition

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 29th, 2009 11:45 am ET

I will sign the petition out of solidarity, but I am sure he will not get it. The members are too conservative to look around the molestation charges.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 29th, 2009 11:53 am ET

Kath Kerr,

Nice to see the people in Montreal. However, I feel sad so many people are "celebrating" now. Where were they 5 years ago???

donatella (from Romania)   July 29th, 2009 11:53 am ET

Of course, Michael Jackson deserves Nobel Prize...starting with 90's he was chosen by fans to get this prize...but, really I don't know what happened then....
At least now, even if it is too late for him, to offer him this prize...
he suppose to receive it for people's appreciation for what he did for this world....HE DESERVES IT....!!!!
Michael, we love you so much...and we will choose you...!!

Toni   July 29th, 2009 11:55 am ET

Yeah, but then they turn around and say they believe in our judicial system here in America. Sound hipocritical to me. He was PROVEN innocent and still gets branded as a pedafile.

Aixa from Argentina   July 29th, 2009 11:55 am ET

I agree with all the fans who think that Michael has done sufficient merit to be Nobel de la Paz.... just with the simple action of make us think about Peace...

And I also agree with those people who ask themselves why does the human race wait until someone dies to really apreciate all the good things, to be grateful ... too sad...

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 11:58 am ET

mariau what link do you want to know

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 12:00 pm ET

Toni, I did read that article–I definitely proves that Murray wanted to cover his tracks-What a pice of S-----t. Calling an eleven year old into the room–Can you imagine the guilt he has placed on the child.

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 12:00 pm ET


Go jump in the lake, but only if you cant swim. How about that one?

Bella   July 29th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

YES, I vote for MICHAEL being award NOBEL PEACE PRICE,

Although it's late, Michael would have really appreciated it...

John, I'd rather be the pinhead rather that the Zit.

Vicky Jones   July 29th, 2009 12:15 pm ET

No one deserves the Noble Peace Prize more than Michael. His humanitarian messages through his songs are clear examples of making the world a better place especially for our children,

Toni   July 29th, 2009 12:16 pm ET

Linda NY

It also sounds like Paris and Blanket saw alot too. I think in those 3-4 hrs, he called those women, did God knows what else, and if other meds are in MJs body, the doc purposly put them there. That is sick to start CPR on a dead body. And she said nothing about anyone else when before Murry called for Prince. So where was the person that called 911? Was he already upstairs with Murry?
And the diprivan supposedly leaves the body within 2hrs right? Well if the blood is no longer circulating through Michaels body, wouldn't the diprivan stay in his blood? Just a thought.

michele canada   July 29th, 2009 12:17 pm ET

where is the article i couldn't find it when i clicked on the link

Toni   July 29th, 2009 12:45 pm ET

Ok I just checked and the site above takes you right to it

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 1:05 pm ET

Toni–you're right–Those kids were traumatized--Oh my god–Poor babies.

Linda from New York   July 29th, 2009 1:09 pm ET

your are on here because?
I thought the law was that you were innocent until proven guilty, Doesn't it apply to everyone–or maybe it just doesn't apply to Michael Jackson.

MJ tribute in Montreal
Loved it. Well done !

Samantha - South Africa   July 29th, 2009 1:37 pm ET

I signed the petition as I think its high time that Michael is finally recognized and honoured for the GREAT humanitarian that he was and for all that he contributed to fellow mankind.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

According to his chef, and others that I think truely cared about him{ including his family}, he did not appear to be drugged up around them. So, either he had stopped {maybe even just recently} or the problem was not as bad as it is being portrayed. I honestly think after reading her article, that this chef would have done something , had see known there was a problem. She said that she had never seen him act like he was on drugs. Like I said before, how do they know that these so called staff that were supposedly getting al of these drugs with these aliases{ which would have been easy to get access too} and supporting their own drug habits or selling them, unknowingly to Michael. I'm sure he did not sit down like most of us and sort through our bills and calculate everything.
I'm not saying that he didn't have a problem, and wasn't getting these medications. However, a 100,000 dollar pharmacy bill? Come on. If as many people saw him coherent as the others saw him drugged, which is it? Maybe we should look at the side that seemed to care the most...............Mesero{SP}, Michaels family, Miko,the God father to his children, the chef, etc. And honestly, do Michaels children look traumatized to you {that is before Michaels death }, and how many people, even some of the vulchers, have said he was a hands on dad and did everything for those kids himself. How could he do that drugged up all the time and sleeping for days ata time.
This story just seems to gat crazier. But I'm going to keep believing the positive side. And all I can say is, THANK GOD for his chef. I am so glad to find out that someone in that house, other than his children, cared about him.

Maureen (UK)   July 29th, 2009 2:03 pm ET

Chef article
What happy home Michael had with his children.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 2:22 pm ET


Sure doesn't sound like a drug infested environment does it?! All of these drug accusations just do not add up to me. I still think if he was taking anything {other than this diprivan}, he was legitamately taking it for severe pain for the lupas dancing moves from rehearsals, etc, depression { i couldn't imagine why ha ha }, and anxiety{ the guy was about to face the most difficult challenge of his life}. Why can't people be more understanding and give this guy the benefit of the doubt. His children should say it all, look at them.

donatella (from Romania)   July 29th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

Thank you guys for signing the MJ Nobel Prize petition....
he really deserves it..........More than ever....!!
i will post that site every single day...till we will reach the target...

To everybody you know...!
He is not alone...we have to show him this...OUR LOVE...Always he wanted love...ONLY LOVE...He didn' ask a lot of things...!!
Every night, I am crying for him, I am thinking to him...

Dirty Diana   July 29th, 2009 2:40 pm ET

Thanks for the Montreal celebration. I wish they had organized that during the time of the trial to show their support. Michael would have loved that!
I signed the petition, but , one has t be living to be nominated. "We are The World" alone should qualify him, if he were only here to enjoy all the adulation.
With all the money now being raised, albums, books (Moonwalker), rehearsal movie coming out in Oct., I would love the money to be used to create a children's hospital: The Michael Jackson Children's Hospital. I think this would make him very proud and it would keep his legacy alive for generations to come.

#1mjfan   July 29th, 2009 3:22 pm ET

i would gladly sign for this petition!!

#1mjfan   July 29th, 2009 3:27 pm ET

quincy jones criticized mj's kids? no way! cuz quincy jones married all white women and has mixed kids. q's been married like 5x.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 3:52 pm ET

Dirty Diana { I love that, good idea for a name. I should have chosen "Billie Jean".}

Anyway, I think the hospital or a special park for ill and handicapped children. Great idea.

Maureen (UK)   July 29th, 2009 3:57 pm ET

Toni, MJ's Personal film.
There has been a sky news short feature today (in the UK) of Michael personal footage, having a birthday party for one of his children at their home. The kids look younger so it must have been taken a few years ago. Paris & prince Michael 1 talk about how they love Daddy. They sing together and do a jigsaw. You've maybe all seen it cos we seem to get MJ info after you.
Looks like Michael was a really caring father, who spent a lot of time with his kids. Wish people had seen this before.

Toni   July 29th, 2009 4:45 pm ET

That's the problem, nobody takes the time to view it for themselves. They listen to the media and tabloids, then convict and crusify.

Stu,Hungary   July 29th, 2009 6:53 pm ET

Hi everybody.I was not close to net and tv today,i hope,i didnt miss anything.

Whenn i was read this newas,i olmost started to cry.Maybe for somebody its to lait and to litle,but i think,its wunderfull,that peaples start something to doo for MJ,so hes name will meen something wunderfull in the future,and clean every dirti out of it.Olso wunderfull to now,that somany peaples love hem this much.I am happy about this.Now i just hope so,that the investigation will go well.

Cocovelvet   July 29th, 2009 8:42 pm ET


I agree with you fully that MUrray is definately the one who gave that drug to MJ if it was found on MJ'S body because as I have seen in that video of Sanja Gupta, someone immediatly looses consciousness after the drug is administered.

Since it was eliarlier reported that MJ phoned someone ( forgot the name), telling him he is not feeling well on that fateful morning, MJ could have told the same to Murray and he had given MJ the drug to put him to sleep. Most people are aware that MJ had a problem of insomnia ( sleep problems), and Murray could have thought that since MJ was particularly under so much stress rehersing , that could have been the problem for him not feeling well.

Mark in St. Louis   July 29th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

MJ sread a lot of peace, especially when he was being a pedophile. Wake up, he was just a very talented entertainer. That's all.

Michael Jackson for The Nobel Peace

Natalie   July 29th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Dr Murray didn't fulfill his ethical obligation to the king of pop!

Laura   July 29th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Hey Lou, from Tulsa, I'm from Tulsa too, although the way our state legislates I ain't too proud to admit it half the time. I will say that - that's only YOUR opinion. Hey is a Tulsan who has loved the work of Michael Jackson for decades and followed his life through study and research. He was acquitted of the child molestation charges, what rock have you been living under? Oh that's right, you're from Tulsa, where many of the uniformed simply spout off their opinions and actually believing that they are in good company.
Most of us are so embarassed by the ignorance that is spewed from our CONSERVATIVE citizens that we simple shake our heads and refuse to argue with your petty thought.

You don't need to say another word, we know you are hatefilled. End of it.

L.E. Glassberg   July 29th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

The Nobel Peace Prize is a great idea. I am wondering if there is anything that can be done to fully exonerate MJ of those charges that tarnished his career and seem to have effected him so deeply? Can Larry or Anderson do a show devoted to this matter?

Laura   July 29th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

Please do not play that song again, about Demerol. It is very painful to listen to and I don't think it will really help anyone, except to have doctors or psychologists and a GOOD music critic to analyze the significance of it, the text the delivery, the time it was made and what was happening in his life. I've heard some claim it is a cry for help, and i would agree. But please, don't play it again, let him rest in peace.

Alda   July 29th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Michael Jackson deserves the Nobel Peace Prize more than anyone else. He never stopped caring making this world a better place.He cared for the children of the world and other important issues long before Angelina Jolie,Oprah,Bono or other celebrities.He cared for our environment and planet earth long before Al Gore and Leo DiCaprio.(Check out earth song)
He cared and dedicated millions of dollars to fight against aids and unprivileged kids of Africa and other countries long before Oprah.
I can't believe and I am so disappointed from media to underestimate such a wonderful contributor to the world. Michael Jackson was an inspiration and this will be well deserved.

caro   July 29th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

mj would 've been very happy with this, he loved to accomplish big very emotional right now, just saw the montreal vid and is so so amazing the power that an extraordinary human can have, i mean look a these kids paying tribute to the king. god is love and love conects us all, michael was an angel from god and his love is still shining even after his dead...sorry if i not very coherent, my english is not very MJ

Melissa Browning   July 30th, 2009 12:26 am ET

Why can't we just let the man R.I.P.? Why must we prevail on all this negativity? M.J. was a very positive spirit in our country, and none of this negativity surfaced until AFTER his death. Lord, I pray I never become famous, because after I die people will trash me for having been a good human being with faults. We ALL have faults. Wake up America! This could happen to anyone of us.
People love you while you're living and donating time and money, but than find as much trash as possible when you die. The media is making so much money on all this sensationalism and individuals are making tons of money on MJ's death (books, t-shirts, cups, pictures, records); everything from A-Z. God really needs to bless America. We have some real issues!

LuCinda Douglas   July 30th, 2009 12:27 am ET

I believe that Michael Jackson was one of the greatest humanitarians ever. He loved all people and wanted the earth to be perfect. I just wish that he was here to accept it.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 12:30 am ET

If you listen, he is actually talking about doctors telling him to trust them, and then he starts saying about demerol. It's actually a slam at the dr,s, but of course the media won't listen close enough to figure it out.

MJLover   July 30th, 2009 12:46 am ET

I support MJ all the way! I believe that he DESERVES this....please people sign up for this because we need to give him the respect that he needed it when he was alive!!!

Dirty Diana   July 30th, 2009 2:17 am ET

Toni (or should I call you Billie Jean?)
" Morhine" is a hard song to listen to....Deepak on LKL tonight seemed affected listening to it.-perhaps it was the first time he ever heard it. He just always appears so sad talking about Michael. I always get the feeling he is trying to tell us there is something horrible in MJ's past but Deepak always stops himself. Perhaps he doesn't want to betray a trust.

He deserves a Nobel Prize..
He was such a kind man and a generous philantrophist..
also many songs were dedicated by him for the betterment of the world..
He was a great person..

Jacquelyn   July 30th, 2009 6:31 am ET

Dirty Diana

He's telling everything else so what would stop him from doing so now. I dont think he does though. Like Michael said his true friends are the ones not known to the world. Deepak is known.

Jacquelyn   July 30th, 2009 6:37 am ET

Melissa Browning

You are wrong, the negativity was there long before Michael passed. The media made sure of that.

Farah   July 30th, 2009 6:45 am ET

i have signed the petition. i request all fans to mobilise as much support as possible-please. MJ desrves this and he should get it. I think alda has said it beautifully. Thanks alda

Barbara from Va   July 30th, 2009 9:49 am ET

Although Jackson was a great entertainer and seemed to be a very caring person, I find the consideration of a Nobel Peace Prize a little over the top. To compare him to the likes of Mother Theresa, Elie Wiesel and Nelson Mandela is outrageous.

LK   July 30th, 2009 10:47 am ET

MJ should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize – he was a humanitarian, he has broken barriers. Isn't this what the world wants a world where race should not be an issue. MJ was all about seeing neither Black nor White. He has made more charitable contributions more than any other entertainer. This man was loved by the World. I met a foreigner from another country who told me that the children in his country could not speak English, but they knew who Micheal Jackson was and could say his name. MJ deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for uniting people of different nationalities & religions together. MJ was love for all mankind. MJ was above love and peace. He was an Humanitarian.

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee need to do what is right, everyone doesn't have to be a politician or an scientist, activist , etc. to get the award. The award says "Peace". Micheal was an extraordinary Peace Maker throughout the world.

Jacquelyn   July 30th, 2009 10:48 am ET

No its not outrageous. Michael did more than anybody in the world. He should be recognized for what he has done.

cassandra   July 30th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

"Another day has gone
I'm still all alone
How could this be
You're not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold...."

My name is Cassandra and I am 15 years old. That verse sums up how I feel right now. I love, not loved, Michael Jackson dearly. He was my idol, my inspiration and my friend. Through his music and actions he has taught me so much. There were times in my life when I didn't even have the strength to go on but when I listened to MJ's words I felt like all my troubles were at a pause and he taught me how to love.

Sometimes I find myself just sitting down and asking God why he had to take him away from of all the people that loved him. I may never find the answer to that question but I know God put Michael in this world for a reason. To show people how to love one another, to bless us with his presence and music and to help all the children he has helped. I may not have actually known Michael but I feel as if I have. You might think I'm crazy but I felt as if he was my best friend. When he died I feel as if I lost apart of my soul and I still cry thinking about it.

We are still grieving his death but also celebrating the wonderful life he led. I continue to pray for his family, especially his children, to stay strong through this tough time. And if I could say one last thing to Michael it would be I love you and the times when you felt low and alone, miles away I was here for you and I was always your friend.

So Today I ask everyone:
Put The Past In The Past Where It Belongs. Forgive Past Mistakes, Forget Past Flaws, He Was A Human Just Like Us, Who Deserves To Be Remembered As One. He Was a Great Man, and Strived To Help to Make the World A Better Place. Remember him For That and His Astonishing Music.

That's why Michael deserves a Nobel Prize.

Rest in Peace, you deserve it Michael.

well said cassandra
God Bless you

Mark in St. Louis   August 1st, 2009 9:47 am ET

MJ does not deserve the Noble Peace Prize.

The poor guy tried to keep it all together but ultimately couldn't find the right help. His mental imbalance caused him to interact with some children inappropriately. Too bad that his support system failed him beginning with his childhood. I'm glad his is finally at peace.

His friends failed him,
His family failed him,
and his money failed him.
