Michael Jackson - How Little We Knew

Posted: 12:59 AM ET

By John Jeremiah Sullivan via GQ Magazine

Before the weirdness claimed his legacy, Michael Jackson understood his talent—and what he was willing to do for it—better than we ever have

Michael-Jermaine-JacksonHow do you talk about Michael Jackson unless you begin with Prince Screws? Prince Screws was an Alabama cotton-plantation slave who became a tenant farmer after the Civil War, likely on his old master's land. His son, Prince Screws Jr., bought a small farm. And that man's son, Prince Screws III, left home for Indiana, where he found work as a Pullman porter, part of the exodus of southern blacks to the northern industrial cities.

There came a disruption in the line. This last Prince Screws, the one who went north, would have no sons. He had two daughters, Kattie and Hattie. Kattie gave birth to ten children, the eighth a boy, Michael—who would name his sons Prince, to honor his mother, whom he adored, and to signal a restoration. So the ridiculous moniker given by a white man to his black slave, the way you might name a dog, was bestowed by a black king upon his pale-skinned sons and heirs.

... It's odd to write about a person knowing he may have been, but not if he was, a serial child molester. Whether or not Michael did it, the suggestion of it shadowed him for so long and finally killed his soul. It's said that toward the end he was having himself put under—with the same anesthesia that may have finished him—not for hours but for days. As though being snuffed. Witnesses to his body on the morgue table report that his prosthetic nose was missing. There were only holes in his face. A mummy. He was mostly bald and weighed scarcely more than 100 pounds. Two separate complete autopsies: They cut him to pieces. As of this writing, no one outside the Jackson camp knows the whereabouts of his body. He seems to be resting temporarily in Berry Gordy's unoccupied crypt.

Leave MJ alone..................


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 1st, 2009 1:15 am ET

Mr. Sullivan's article, viewed in its entirety, is somewhat interesting. The introduction used for this blog, however, leaves much to be desired. Rest in peace, Michael. At least you do not have to deal with such nonsense ever again.

And yes, we do want justice for Michael. Anyone who does not, please keep your disrespectful, nasty opinions to yourselves.


Rhonda   September 1st, 2009 1:16 am ET

This is so stupid. His nose was not missing. Will you people not ever leave it alone.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 1st, 2009 1:19 am ET

Gene - Yes, we are tying up the loose ends.

You cannot change ignorance. It is sheer wickedness.


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 1st, 2009 1:23 am ET

Oh my goodness. No disrespect intended Larry, but did you like or dislike Michael?

I cannot tell from the posting of this GQ article within your blogosphere.


lex   September 1st, 2009 1:32 am ET

this is ridiculous mj's nose wasnt missing how could u say somethg so stupid im stick of the same old sh*t with the media leave michael alone already harrass a celebrity dats living

Toni   September 1st, 2009 1:38 am ET

And NOTHING claimed his legacy....It is still very much there!!!!!

LIZ   September 1st, 2009 1:40 am ET


Are there any plans to build a memorial for Michael Jackson similar to Graceland and if so where? I think maybe it should be at NEVERLAND because that was his dream and it created it and built it.
It was originally built to be a happy place where he had so much fund and where he spent the happiest days of his life. Even though he never wanted to go there again because it hade caused him so much grief and pain. His body will not be there just his memorbilia. It is such a beautiful pace and it will more than pay for itself.


Toni   September 1st, 2009 1:40 am ET

Cnn or Larry, are you being paid to trash Michael Jackson?

Thank you for this fine article. I read it when it was posted in GQ. For me it's refreshing that the author sees the evolution of MJ from an aesthetic and symbolic perspective, which is a very rare thing among people who write about him.
His point is that MJ has become his own creation, in every aspect of his life, according to his own vision and with all the risks involved. Nobody else has done it before in such a systematic, spectacular and radical way, and this explains the failure. But this was the fate of an artist, and this is the right way to see all what he has done with his life. In no way is this article disrespectful, on the very contrary!! Definitely not meant for a hurried reading.

Maria - I did not refer to the GQ article itself as being disrespectful. In fact, I read the article in its entirety, and stated that it was interesting.

My 1:15 am post refers to multiple vile, nasty, and rather confrontational comments made tonight against Michael and his dad on a separate blog.

Good night. 🙂

This is crap.
MJ rest in peace. You are loved.

Sheletta   September 1st, 2009 3:44 am ET

WOW: I enjoyed reading this acticle on Michael, except one thing the Molestation theory. It seems to me that if you are charge with a crime as bad as this was, and you are found NOT GUILTY, if really does not matter because the MEDIA, will not let it go. No woner Michael did not returned back to the states for while.

oana   September 1st, 2009 3:57 am ET

This is so stupid!!!!
You have a liitle brain if you "say" so about Michael.

Maria   September 1st, 2009 4:00 am ET

Nicole S. – no problem, I was referring to the poster above me 🙂

Sheletta   September 1st, 2009 4:13 am ET

Well John Jermiah: This is true for some, but not all Michael's fans gave up on him. When he left tha court room with a verdict of not guilty he had fans outside the court cheering him on. Yes, their was a few that turned there backs on him I would agree. I personally never brought that story about him taking advantage of little boys them and I still feel that way now. Why do the Media (including you), keep bring that damn Molestation charges up?

If you asked me and maybe many others, they will feel the same as me when I say that I believe that all those FAKE molestation charges was brought up for "Money Scams out of him/Blackmail, so that they would be able to live off him Fat. It may had work the first time in 1993 I believe (not sure because I did not pay much attention to it, just like later when another came up, did not give that a second thought ether), so this is getting to be sicking. Why, can't you people let him get the peace he so much deserves, because here on earth the media try to destroy him down to nothing. So there are some that hurted Michael as well as the kids that told the lie. Michael work hard for what he accompished in life and to have some people comealong that you are help and bring you down to let all your fans/others see you in handcuff and put on trail for a LIE, yes that did something to him, would it had not been to you, especially that all you did was try and bring happiness into your life.

This hurts, to know how much he is missed very much. He would be now on TOUR, if his life was not taken from him on this very dark sad day in June. Please don't write and judge all for some who done wrong by Michael. If and I do say IF he was here today to see how much unconditional love he has now, would had been the best medicine for him.

Sheletta   September 1st, 2009 4:23 am ET

So piss right now going to bed and have happy thoughts. Good nite EVERYOVE.

P.S. Pray that before they laid Michael down in his permanante home that we hear or see the new with arrest warrans.

simba   September 1st, 2009 4:34 am ET

I read the entire article, because I bought the magazine for the great early pictures of MJ. While the writer tries to give a different perspective on MJ's life than most of the media, he doesn't quite succeed.

He succumbs to the temptation to fit MJ into a pre-conceived narrative. For example, he talks about how lonely he must have been as a young teen, taught by private tutors. But MJ also went to prep school (with Kathy Hilton, for God's sake!). He wasn't educated in a bubble. And he doesn't even deal with the devastating effects of MJ's illnesses and injuries, and the significance of losing all of the pigment from his skin to a black artist constantly in the public eye.

He describes MJ's high post-adolescent singing voice as his "drag voice", seemingly unaware that highly developed upper registers have been popular in "urban" music for decades. And no one uses such loaded language to describe the singing of Frankie Valli, El DeBarge, or Robin Thicke, all of whom sing even higher than MJ.

Although he presents MJ as a relaxed and confident straight guy, the writer seems to buy into Ian Halperin's fantasy of MJ as insatiably gay, even though NO credible male lover has ever been discovered – and we all know how hard the media have been looking!

Mr. Sullivan does acknowledge that MJ's relationship to the black press is confounding to him. Being interviewed by black journalists freed MJ to express himself as an artist, rather than as a defendant. It illustrates the wisdom of Nikki Giovanni's great poem Nikki-Rosa: "I really hope no white person ever has cause to write about me because they never understand". The writer never really "got" Michael Jackson.

jacqueline from holland   September 1st, 2009 4:48 am ET

and think they now it better but they dont
we are the real mj fans so dont scruwing whit us

Alicia   September 1st, 2009 5:06 am ET

ugh!!! not again! why would you print something like this Larry? It's so wrong and dumb. Who cares about anything he wrote??? It didn't even make sense or go together, the pieces of the article. And it was poorly written.

Larry, go to elites TV website and print the article by Mathew Semino called Michael Jackson, the Wounded Messenger. Then we might forgive you for this one.

Pauline (Germany)   September 1st, 2009 6:19 am ET

Thank´s for the hint to the article by Mathew Semino.
Should be posted here by Larry!

SuzieCanada   September 1st, 2009 7:40 am ET

I only read the first few paragraphs of this artice – have to leave soon. Looks like tabloid junk and disgusting! Shame on CNN! When is this going to stop?

Have a good day bloggers!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 1st, 2009 8:02 am ET

What the F*** is this crap again.......CNN you disgust me!

"So the ridiculous moniker given by a white man to his black slave, the way you might name a dog, was bestowed by a black king upon his pale-skinned sons and heirs"

How the hell does this person know that a slave owner named MJ's grandfather Prince? I always thought PARENTS named their children. He does not elaborate on that.........

"Witnesses to his body on the morgue table report that his prosthetic nose was missing. There were only holes in his face. A mummy. He was mostly bald and weighed scarcely more than 100 pounds. Two separate complete autopsies: They cut him to pieces"

Would MJ be pulling at a "prothetic nose" as in the last video of him looking at rehearsals? NO....doesnt make sense!

For the article above: I think a lot of the things he wrote are just speculations. That's OK, everybody has the right to his own opinion.
But what I need now are FACTS, FACTS, FACTS.......

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 8:26 am ET

How can you possibly post such a horrible article about Michael Jackson–but then again I am not surprised? How cruel can you be. We Michael Jackson fans are still trying to come to terms with death and you post this garbage. How dare you? Michael was not a child molester and he legacy was not desroyed. He will always The Greatest Entertainer ever. You can easily see that his legacy will live on through millions-and I mean–Milliions of fans all over the world.

jacqueline from holland   September 1st, 2009 8:27 am ET

allure i hope the facts are comming soon not trash

Anthony   September 1st, 2009 8:27 am ET

Apparently this guy doesn't even know his own magazine's history.

October 1994 Issue of

Was Michael Jackson Framed? The Untold Story
by Mary A. Fischer

The Story: "Did Michael Do It?
The Untold Story of the Events that Brought Down a Superstar"
This 12-page article covers the story of the molestation charges brought against the superstar by 13-year-old boy in the mid-nineties. Only this article tells a different story;one that made Michael the victim of a well-conceived plan to extract money from him, and made a young boy the instrument of destruction by his own father.

"More than that, the story that arises from this perviously unexplored territory is radically different from the tale that [had] been promoted by tabloid and even mainstream jounalists. It is a story of greed, ambition, misconceptions on the part of police and prosecutors, a lazy and sensation-seeking media and the use of a powerful, hypnotic drug. It may also be a story about how a case was simply invented."

Told in amazing detail, it's an examination based on court documents, business records and scores of interviews. What emerges is a persuasive argument that Jackson molested no one and that he himself may have been the victim of extortion.

Judie   September 1st, 2009 8:28 am ET

Bonjour ma chère
They ask strange questions about their relation ship? Incredible! Anyway, I never thought that MJ is gay. Have a look at the video "you are not alone", I mean when a man looks at a woman that way....... must have been something very special.... called love 🙂

Judie   September 1st, 2009 8:34 am ET

Morning Linda,

The wolves are trying to rile the fans again.

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 8:36 am ET

oh–my god-they will not leave him alone–like we said yesterday–women know these things–Michael was not gay–Why is it if you don't sleep around and have a diffrent woman on your arm everynight–you are considered gay? I just don't understand.

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 8:39 am ET

hi judie

Judie   September 1st, 2009 8:40 am ET

This is how I feel so what if he was gay... would I like him any less? No, so what if he took drugs, who are we to say what he felt like all the time. None of these stories true or false will ever change our minds.
Fans forever............!

Allure   September 1st, 2009 8:40 am ET

Hi linda

Allure   September 1st, 2009 8:46 am ET


I got the article "Was Michael Jackson Framed? The Untold Story
by Mary A. Fischer" only last week and studied the whole thing yesterday evening. It reads like John Grisham story, it's really incredible! As a non american I do not know the author of the article. Who is she, can I trust in the story she tells? I really hope it

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 8:47 am ET

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS CR-P ... Why the H-ll are they doing to Michael....I heard that stuff... I don't believe it... Think about it.... as much Michael moved his head dancing you think his wig would of fell off.....and a his nose fell off. Get real.....

Just for instant....Just to say... if it was true.... Do they really think... i would think any less of Michael... NO, NO, NO, NOT AT ALL... he is adorable...He was Funny,, Silly, ,His Dancing, His Soft voice, his Talent....His good looks... everything about him,,, still keeps me watching his home movies, interview, playing his Music, watching his videos.... Michael could of had one eye on to of his head.. I still would would want him.... I would never stop watching him.... It is whats inside that counts.... Michael Spirit has everyone beat... So put that one up on you interviews your moron Media....

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 1st, 2009 8:47 am ET

Don't you find it strange that all these REPORTERS, JOURNALISTS, etc. all knew MJ so intimately that they could write up all this GARBAGE about him..........cannot believe this stuff......NO ONE KNEW MICHAEL SO INTIMATELY BUT A FEW VERY CLOSE FRIENDS.....MJ SAID IT HIMSELF THAT HE COULD COUNT HIS TRUE FRIENDS THAT REALLY KNEW HIM ON 1 HAND!

Just looked at video on Geraldo at large website called "Scarred" and it is said in that video that MJ had lupus that affected his skin and in particular his nose....that is why he had surgeries on his nose to help the scarring from Lupus and that he also had Vitiligo!!!

pat davis   September 1st, 2009 8:51 am ET

This article sickens me. This "journalist" , and I use the term loosely made so many hateful comments. The one that offends me the most is when stated that "they cut Michael to pieces". This being seems to take pleasure in jusst the thought of that. Then the prostetic nose, yeah okay. If Michael had a prostetic nose wouldn't it had fallen off by now, in a performance or an interview? That rumors been around since the 80's! I take offense to comments comparing his family to dogs. This person should go back to school. The reading made no sense, it skipped from one subject to the next, and nothing was valid. All hearsay. A serial child molester? Thats a new one. Gimme a Break. Michael will always be missed and always go down in history as the greatest entertainer that ever lived. MJ 4 LIFE!

Janice   September 1st, 2009 8:53 am ET

The author of this article did Michael a disservice by repeating horrible lies about him. There were elements in the article that were positive but they were overwhelmingly drowned out by the negativity. People need to stop this foolishness and Larry King needs to be more selective about the articles that he posts on this site.

Lora from Ottawa Canada:

Slave masters named their slaves when they bought them. Slaves were nothing more than property. Their last name was their masters' last name, not the real tribal name they were given by their parents in Africa or their other country of origin.

AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN is more romantic, passionate and well behave.. not all but most of them.. they are more well being human..
when they say Love – means so much..

Michael Jackson said this everyday 100 times - because He believed love would heal the wounded heart - love would heal the world..
but because of this jealous MORONS had dirty minded people.. the meaning of love for them is Sex.. and its really absurd and ridiculous..
if all people think love is sex.. i'll better guess.. that we live in the world full of devilish things..
and it sounds scary that this world was diryt and corrupt..

Allure   September 1st, 2009 9:01 am ET

Amy   September 1st, 2009 9:07 am ET

To be fair, Larry should publish the article by Mathew Semino called Michael Jackson, the Wounded Messenger" from elites TV website as suggested by alicia. I've always thought reputable news agencies should give both sides of the story.

céline FR   September 1st, 2009 9:08 am ET

Hi everybody
This is very important
I got this from wikipedia ( about album Invincible ) :
Jackson was waiting for the licenses to the masters of his albums to revert back to him, thus allowing him to promote his old material and preventing Sony from getting a cut of the profit. Jackson expected this to occur early in the new millennium, however, due to the fine print and various clauses in the contract, the revert date is still many years away.
Jackson began an investigation, and it emerged that the attorney who represented the singer in the deal was also representing Sony, creating a conflict of interest. Jackson was also concerned about another conflict of interest. For a number of years, Sony had been negotiating to buy Jackson's music catalog.
If Jackson's career or financial situation were to deteriorate, it would be in Jackson's financial interest to sell his catalog. Thus, Sony had something to gain from Jackson's career failing. Jackson was able to use these conflicts as leverage to exit his contract early.

Now my question is :
Does anyone of you here know the name of this attorney ?

I mean the one M.J fired after his investigation when it occurred he was betraying him and leaking his business secrets to sony

Is it true that this guy now is one of M.J's will executors ??

If that was true I think that would be very very bad for the estate

I think Sony will do anything to bankrupt the estate to push Mrs. Jackson to sell M.J’s remaining part of the catalogue to them

The Jacksons must be very prudent and cautious when dealing with those guys

Mrs Jackson should constantly investigate with her lawyers

they can do the same thing the other attorney did with Michael....

It’s very hard these days to find a loyal and honest friend not to mention a lawyer especially that everybody worships $$$$ and can be -very easily- corrupted

Anabela Guedes, from Portugal   September 1st, 2009 9:09 am ET

more rubbish, trash, garbage, tabloid junkie, whatever you wanna call it!

find out something more useful to do in life, like caring for the others.


Anthony   September 1st, 2009 9:10 am ET

Yes. You can believe it. She wrote the article from actually court documents.

Anabela Guedes, from Portugal   September 1st, 2009 9:10 am ET

those who make such allegations should be prosecuted, ALL of them should go to jail!!

mariau   September 1st, 2009 9:11 am ET

Michael Jackson is a victim of filthy media and filthy people. because of his fame and adoration of his billion fans around the world.. some of them were too madly jealous.
Michael Jackson is a victim of user people.. used his name to be part of popularity.
Michael Jackson is victim of consumers to to take him away MJ's weatlh..
Michael Jackson is a victim of prejudice people that the only they came to their minds is selfishness and arrogant..
Michael Jackson is a victim of critism, racist and popularization..
because of his continous fame and adoration of his billion fans around the world.. until his death.. people used him because they made more money on his name..


Anthony   September 1st, 2009 9:11 am ET

I can't believe a respectable magzine like GQ wrote an article like this.

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 9:11 am ET

-I don't know –after watching that clip–I don't know what to thin of her–when I originally saw the clip–i just thought that she didn't want to talk about her relationship with Michael–but then when diane Sawyer asked why Michael Jackson? she says that she is a litte bit off like that–I don't know what she meant by that.

Anthony   September 1st, 2009 9:14 am ET

The mother of the child that accused Michael of molesting her son was a Grifter. Everyone knew she had a history of filing bogus lawsuits against companies like Sears retail stores.

céline FR   September 1st, 2009 9:15 am ET

I’m pretty sure M.J had changed his will especially during or after the trials
And I remember M.r Leonard Rowe saying in LKL that M.J dismissed those guys a log time ago

So why the only will that shown up is the old one where they were still named as executors

Why we haven’t seen any new will??

Shouldn’t it be with his lawyers or somthin??

Or maybe it’s not in the interest of some people....

Just take a look to what Sony is doing now
They are preparing the reproduction and promotion of the old beatles albums
why NOW ??

why they didn’t do it before.... when Michael was alive
I don’t know what to think…. but all these events look very suspicious

I strongly believe that M.J created lot of enemies when he bought that catalog

Thank u and sorry for my bad english….

LMP did an interview with Oprah, can anyone tell what the audience commented in regards to[LM] her marriage to MJ because she [LM] said "i know" with a long face.

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 9:18 am ET

I never think about sex... It is who i am... Cause i look at it just being together... Love... Holding hands is good enough for me... But I Wanted God more... To be Close... I knew he would protect me.. I didn't want to disappoint him... But that is me... What i am saying ...That i am no better the the next person.... But it is how i want to live my life... When People hear that i don't like sex they think i am lying.... People are so judgemental... just because you don't live like they do....they think there is something wrong with you....

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 9:21 am ET

correct about the mother of that Arvizo kid-and as far as Jordan Chandler is concerned Michael was completely set up by his father. I am sure that Chandler's father had been planning this for along time. Poor Michael never had a chance. If you listen to the tape of Chandler's father talking–he and his lawyer cooked up this whole thing because Michael would not help him in some business dealings. Media needs to do their research–

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 9:24 am ET

No none ever asked Michael what his beliefs were... the media was to interested in Meaningless stuff. Stuff that i didn't care to hear .... I want to learn more about Life and Culture.. what makes Michael tick or people in general ....I hate negative People...

Hi everyone...

Celine FR,

You brought up so many good questions. I wish I had the answers.

Michael Jackson: Triumph and Tragedy

We all feel such a sense of loss and sorrow at the passing of such a gifted and talented artist. He blazed his own trail in dance and music with his talent withstanding the test of time. Michael just made you want to sing and dance, which was perhaps his greatest gift to us. His career and accumulated body of work are the most documented, photographed, filmed and recorded in history. In that regard he will, like Elvis before him, and Marilyn Monroe, continue to entertain us and bring joy into our world each time we watch his videos or listen to his music. He is a cultural icon. We owe him an immeasurable debt of gratitude for the joy and laughter he has brought into our lives.

His life’s work as a philanthropist is exemplary and includes support for over 30 charitable organizations including the Make-a-Wish Foundation, USA for Africa, the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, Heal the World Foundation, Wishes Granted Organization, Boys & Girls Clubs, the DARE program, YMCA, NAACP, United Negro College Fund, and the Michael Jackson UNCF Endowed Scholarship Fund.

On behalf of these and other charities he helped raise over $300 million. In addition he has donated over $50 million of his personal fortune over the years, but even more importantly spent generously of his time visiting cancer patients and burn victims at hospitals around the world. If he learned of a child in pain or suffering whom he could help, he did. While visiting a hospital in Budapest he met a 4-year-old boy desperately needing a liver transplant. This child had been abandoned by his mother and had lived in the hospital his entire life. Touched by his plight, Michael and his wife, Lisa Marie, visited the boy for hours and then pledged funds from Heal the World Foundation to cover all expenses related to the boy’s transplant.

In 1985 he co-wrote the song We are the World with Lionel Richie and helped organize an amazing collaboration of 44 artists to record the song and create the video to raise funds to feed starving children in Africa. The hit single Heal the World and later the Heal the World Tour were such successful fundraising events that it is estimated these projects alone raised in excess of $100 million for the charity USA for Africa. He was involved with Hands across America, a human chain of 7 million people extending across the continental United States. In 2000, the Guinness Book of World Records listed him as the pop star supporting the most charities. He was only 42 years old.

Michael’s professional accomplishments are well documented. His philanthropic works were something for which he kept a relatively low profile. He did it from his heart because he was a kind and loving person who genuinely loved children.

He wrote Gone Too SoonA for Ryan White, a pediatric AIDS patient suffering not just from a new and frightening disease but society’s fear and ignorance of it. Ryan contracted the disease through tainted blood transfusions; Michael welcomed him to his home at Neverland after Ryan was banned from school.

After Michael suffered serious burns from an accident while working on a Pepsi commercial, he donated his $1.5 million insurance settlement to a burn center for children. In 1984 he visited children in the unit for burn victims at Brotman-Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles and also donated funds for a 19-bed unit at Mount Sinai New York Medical Center for leukemia and cancer research. He welcomed sick and dying children to his own home at Neverland Ranch, a fairy-tale land as depicted in the story Peter Pan. A 14-year-old boy suffering from cystic fibrosis was invited to Michael's home as the boy's dying wish. Michael spent time with terminally ill children backstage while on tour, and visited a 12-year-old who was terribly burned by his father in an act of revenge against his former wife. His willingness to help these children was heartwarming.

He created the Michael Jackson UNCF Endowed Scholarship Fund in 1985, a fund for students majoring in performance art and communication, providing money each year to students attending a UNCF member college or university. In February 1986 he heard that one of his biggest fans, a 14-year-old girl, had just undergone open heart surgery, so he called her and invited her to Neverland for dinner and a movie when she was feeling better. She was able to visit on March 8 of that year. The value of her smiles and laughter: priceless. It was simply another act of kindness by this generous man.

He supported the work of the NAACP particularly as it related to prejudice against black artists and donated many personal items for charitable auctions to raise funds for the education of children in developing countries. The proceeds from sales of the record Man in the Mirror were donated to Camp Ronald McDonald, a camp for children who suffer from cancer. In 1988 he presented a $600,000 check to the United Negro College Fund and donated tickets for three concerts in Atlanta, Georgia to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Somehow that year he found the time and energy to visit the Bambini-Gesu Children's Hospital in Rome to sign autographs and give candy to the children and donated 100,000 pounds to the hospital. He visited terminally ill children at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. While visiting a unit for less critical patients he stayed longer than usual and told the children a story. On his 30th birthday he performed a concert in Leeds, England for the charity Give for Life, to help fund the immunization of children, and presented the charity with a check for 65,000 pounds.

In 1989 he made a compassionate visit to Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, California, where a few weeks earlier a 25-year-old madman had fired at the school's playground, killing 5 children and wounding 39 others. A horrible, senseless act of violence followed by a genuine act of kindness. He also invited 200 underprivileged children from the St. Vincent Institute for handicapped children and Big Brothers/Big Sisters to the Circus Vargas in Santa Barbara and then to his home in the Santa Ynez Valley to see his private zoo. Later that year he worked with the Wishes Granted organization to help a 4-year-old boy suffering from leukemia fulfill his wish of meeting Michael, and invited the little boy to a performance of Canadian acrobats.

In support of the Childhelp organization, Michael invited 82 abused and neglected children to Neverland for a barbeque, games, and a movie in 1990. He did the same for Project Dream Street, L.A. to help children with life threatening illnesses. He also hosted an event for 130 children in the YMCA’s summer program of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.

Always sensitive to social issues of poverty, hunger, and homelessness he paid a visit in 1991 to the Youth Sports & Art Foundation in Los Angeles which supports families of gang members dealing with drug-abuse. He talked to the children and presented them with a wide-screen TV and a financial gift. In December his office, MJJ Productions, provided 200 turkey dinners to needy families in Los Angeles.

He spent 11 days in Africa in February, 1992 traveling over 30,000 miles to visit hospitals, orphanages, schools, churches, and institutions for mentally handicapped children. Later that year he held a press conference at New York Radio City Music Hall to announce that he was planning a new world tour to raise funds for his Heal the World Foundation. This Foundation would support the fight against AIDS, Juvenile Diabetes, Camp Ronald McDonald, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

He quietly and compassionately defrayed the funeral expenses for Ramon Sanchez, who was killed during the Los Angeles riots, and the following year announced that he would donate $1.25 million for children who had suffered as a result of the riots.

He made large donations to the poor and needy in Munich, Germany and donated tour earnings of 400,000 pounds to charities in Dublin, Ireland. He visited children at the Sophia Children's Hospital in Rotterdam, presenting them with a check for 100,000 pounds. To the delight of the children at the Queen Elizabeth Children's Hospital in London, he visited with Mickey and Minnie Mouse from Euro-Disney.

In November, 1992, Michael helped supervise the loading of 43 tons of medication, blankets and winter clothes destined for Sarajevo, a war-ravaged country where children were being targeted by snipers. His charity, Heal the World Foundation, collaborated with AmeriCares to deliver supplies and resources totaling $2.1 million to Sarajevo, to be allocated under the supervision of the United Nations. He held a press conference in Tokyo at the American Embassy and presented a check for $100,000 from Pepsi, his tour sponsor, to Heal the World Foundation.

Throughout the 1990s Micheal continued to donate his time and energy to supporting children’s charities all over the world. He invested millions of dollars building a children’s retreat and amusement park with rides and a zoo at Neverland in an effort to “bring people happiness and remind him of the good things in life.”

He continued to support the Boys & Girls Clubs and the DARE program amongst dozens of others. He was instrumental in Pepsi-Cola International. donating new ambulances to the Contacts One Independent Living Center for Children in Moscow and the Hospital de Ninos run by Dr. Ricardo Gutierrez in Buenos Aires. Deeply affected by conditions in impoverished nations, he donated part of his History Tour earnings to the renovation of a hospital in Manila and waved his personal fee for a Bombay appearance, donating $1.1 million to a local charity to help educate children living in slums.

Exclusive photographs of his son Prince were published in British magazine OK! and the 1 million pounds paid by the magazine were donated to charity. In 1998, while at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas, Michael was introduced to a 5-year-old suffering from cancer. He spent the afternoon with the child and went with him to the "Star Trek: The Experience" attraction. In 1999 he presented Nelson Mandela with a check for 1,000,000 South African rand for the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.

Michael expressed his support for our troops in 2002 when he invited more than 200 Team Vandenberg members who had recently returned from overseas deployments, and their families, to Neverland to show his appreciation for the sacrifices of military personnel in his community. He performed at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Apollo Theater in Harlem helping to raise nearly $3 million towards voter registration.

How easy to say we want to change the world. He did. And he worked hard to do it. He brought immeasurable joy to children and sought to alleviate the suffering of thousands of people all over the world. It is this fact that makes the end of the life story of this exemplary humanitarian such a tragedy.

Can one even imagine the heartache it would cause such a good person, who loved children so much, to be falsely accused of hurting a child? It is obvious this man loved children in the most honest and decent way. To label him a pedophile, when he worked so tirelessly to help children and bring joy into their lives, is an unbelievable cruelty. Of all the thousands of lives he touched in such a positive way it is appalling to realize that when the rotten few attempted to extort money from him, the police and Santa Barbara County District Attorney office not only did not protect him, but turned on him and charged him with crimes that must have been the ultimate insult and most hurtful imaginable to him – crimes against children.

In November 2003, over 60 sheriff’s deputies and representatives of the district attorney’s office, in 19 vehicles, descended on Neverland to serve a search warrant. The allegations against Michael had been made by the most unsavory of people clearly in an attempt to extort money. These people had approached him and asked for his help. When he helped them they repaid his kindness by virtually destroying his life and reputation. I read on the Internet yesterday that one of his accusers has now recanted his story. If the others have a shred of decency they will do the same. The false charges filed against Michael Jackson are another form of the police brutality so prevalent in California today.

And here lies the tragedy. We are conditioned to believe that in this great country we are “innocent until proven guilty.” The truth of the matter is you are considered guilty as soon as you are charged, you are considered guilty as soon as you are arrested, you are considered guilty as soon as you enter the jail, you are considered guilty when you go to trial, and you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent.

In Michael’s case, he was innocent, and found not guilty in a court of law of 9 felony charges, yet in the brutal court of public opinion he has somehow been tried and convicted. He experienced the worst character assassination of any celebrity of our generation. He has been ridiculed and scorned. He was made a public spectacle. He was a very private person humiliated by a very public trial. He was called names in the media and by the public and even now as we mourn the loss of this incredible man, the word “molestation” appears in almost every article or story about him. What a disgrace.

For such a sensitive artist and beautiful person with a kind and gentle heart this alone might have been enough to kill him.-Linda Grasse, Santa Ynez

TO: John Jeremiah Sullivan via GQ Magazine – YOU BETTER READ THIS

Airdate: 7/13/2009

He was the star witness at Michael Jackson’s child molestation trial, but the jury didn't buy the accuser's lurid story of sexual abuse.
So why did they reject his testimony?
Lawyer Tom Mesereau defended Jackson during the grueling five month trial in 2005. Speaking with INSIDE EDITION he says he felt the accuser, 13-years-old at the time sheriff's deputies shot the deposition video, was just not believable. “I spoke to the jury foreman after the trial and he told me they looked at that taped interview in the jury room and they discredited everything he was saying – that they had problems with his demeanor, problems with his answers.”
He continues, “I felt like he was prepped for that interview before the cameras started to roll.”
The boy, a cancer survivor, testified at Jackson’s trial as did his mother.
At the trial, Mesereau painted the family as con artists.
Jackson was acquitted of all ten charges.
In a news conference after the verdicts, the jurors were asked if they were persuaded by Mesereau's portrayal of the family as grifters.
In a press conference, a juror spoke up. “Things just didn’t add up. So yes, the thought was there several times.”
Mesereau says that during the trial, the fate of Jackson’s children was uppermost in the singer's mind.
“He was terrified over what would happen to his children if he were convicted. This was a very, very stressful situation for him,” says Mesereau.
And he says Jackson’s mother, Katherine, will be a superb guardian for the children now that their father is gone. “She will be fabulous. She is an absolutely wonderful woman – kind, gentle, very spiritual. She was Michael's strength in that trial. She's a wonderful lady. It's a great choice for a parent.”

Yesterday someone posted a video about a phone call MJ made to someone saying he was afraid of Tohme and then another video of NBC interviewing Tohme....

Tohme was in control of everything about MJ.....MJ didnt' even know how much money he had.......MJ could have been ripped off many times over by this Tohme. MJ sent Tohme a letter dismissing him of his services and in the NBC interview after MJ's death, Tohme still said he was in charge of everything........Scary!

I think Tohme knows more about MJ's affairs than anybody else it seems.......LAPD should be investigating him I hope

It's appalling people like this "Gentleman" John Jeremiah Sullivan are still talking about Michael with no nose. How much does it hurt you sir, if Michael has no noses or two noses?

And who are you to judge him? At the end of the day, you are just nothing better than any tabloid garbage who make a living by throwing mud at other people.

Shame and very inhuman!!

mariau   September 1st, 2009 9:59 am ET

lora- Tohme was introduced by Jermaine., tohme is a millionaire businessman but lots of charges fraud.. i suspected that long time his doing this and he catched big fish.. and that's MIchael ..

i just hope that Jackson will dig deeper about this two man Murray and Tohme because if they found out something.. this is really conspinracy murder.

Murray said to his last speech – i told the truth that he was innocent.. so meaning there's someone behind him..

MaryRM   September 1st, 2009 10:19 am ET

What kind of sad, unresearched, repeat runour without corroboration article is this?

Again I am disappointed in the so-called 'legitimate' press. Guess what, I have eyes too and 2 days before Michael died, he did not weigh 100 pounds, we can see the footage for ourselves – he looked very well and healthy, and very happy. He had gained weight since the trial which was a time when he was actually and understandably thin and drawn.

American journalists all need to go back to school. the quality and content of the writing in the last 30 years has hit the point of ridiculous. Oh, that's right, it's not about accuracy, it's about sales. Too bad Woodward and Bernstein aren't interested in this story, we might actually have some intelligent reporting for a change.

Nancy   September 1st, 2009 10:19 am ET

John Sullivan
We knew him because we did not let prejudices and homophobia and a pedophile witch hunt get in the way of knowing who he really was. The media created a caricature of MJ. If he looked like Brad Pitt, no one would ever have questioned him.

MJ was the most misunderstood, persecuted, ridiculed person on the planet. The man was all about love. He loved everybody. He truly wanted to make the world a better place. He was sweet and shy and loved to have fun.He was magical . MJ loved children exactly the same way Jesus did. Was Jesus a pedophile? The world was unbelievably cruel to this man during his lifetime because it seeks to destroy people who are different or too successful. It breaks my heart that he didn’t know how much he was loved. He had so much left to give.

mariau   September 1st, 2009 10:20 am ET

Hello everyone!

Seems you had a very busy night last night on Joe blog! LOL
I read a bit of it and,,,ouf ! .... a lot of debate! lol

Stu, about Lisa Marie, I believe your strange feelings (that I kind of share) comes from the fact that she is unstable... she change her statement and attitude depending who interviews her... she seems to be easily influenced.....

Brigida, Italy   September 1st, 2009 11:15 am ET

So here we go again? and again? and again....
Just started to read the whole article but I stopped on page 3. Then I came here again to see your comment. Now I believe I don't have to go back to it.

The story of the name Prince I heard it already, the thing with his voice... everyone can train voice with a little discipline like I did also for my job.
I don't want to go back to the trial... he was innocent, the verdict told it and so please don't come to it over and over and over again... last night I left the blogs because of this. I'm just tired.

To Mary A. Fischer... i read about her and she seems to be a serious source for many people. Long time ago I found some piece of her book in the net but don't remember where.

Now, should I go back and start again reading from page 4?

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 11:16 am ET

That people are out there that only live by God .

MaryRM   September 1st, 2009 11:16 am ET

Hey CNN, if Ebony and Jet are the only places where we can read balanced articles about Michael, how about getting permission from them to post?

Just to give you a sample of the ridiculous things in this article, the name Smelly has nothing to do with Michael's nose. I heard Quincy Jones say why he gave Michael the name smelly and it was because he didn't like to use strong language. Michael replaced some words with smelly to describe music (I think it was even a replacement for funky). This is something we older fans know and really it was one of the very endearing qualities he had.

Also, how can liking rainbows be strange? Everyone likes rainbows. The media take the most innocuous things and try to twist it to weirdness. Like Elizabeth Taylor said, Michael Jackson is the most normal person I know.

John Jeremiah Sullivan's article is so TABLOID. The last name of the Jackson Family's ancestors is Scruse, not Screws. This goes to show nothing in that article is credible, and that this tacky journalist has let his personal hatred towards Michael Jackson show. How can you even consider yourself a reporter if your using incorrect information and you can't spell! This is an insult to the readers intelligence, because this jerk didn't think we (the readers) would know any better. This is why you can not beleive everything you read. Especially when it comes to Michael Jackson. After investigating and finding out the family name is SCRUSE NOT SCREWS, that says a lot about the whole article. INACURATE. This guy has a hatred for Michael. His ignorance and mentality, or lack of, shows in his 5th grade level article.There are even some racist comments made. BIG thumbs down to GQ. This man should be fired. Please Respond!

mj shouldve dated tatina but he didnt thy wouldve been really cute 2gether

Pam   September 1st, 2009 11:38 am ET

First......the nose: For what it's worth, Dr. Klein stated on Larry King that he had a nose. Seems like it would look obviously fake in some picture, somewhere; but it always looked real. He had a bandaid on it
As for being gay....Don't you think it would have come out? At least one of these so called lovers would have wanted their 15 minutes of fame a long time ago. Also, since he had so many gay fans he probably would have admitted to it but he said he wasn't. He proclaimed his great love of children...that got him in trouble. He had pornographic pictures and videos of women...not men or children.
Pedophile...see above paragraph...last line. Growing up, he slept with his brothers many times so non-sexual sleeping with family, friends was normal to him. He did so much to help children and was quoted as saying he loved them so because they liked/loved him for himself. That was probably why he cared about animals too.
He wanted to give love and may have felt that children were safe and would not hurt him...unfortunately some of them had parents who saw a way to make some money.
Asexual...He said his favorite song he wrote was Dirty Diana. Maybe he had a Dirty Diana that made him feel that no woman could love him for himself. During his formative years, girls would pull their skirts up in front of him, guys would grab him.On tour, one of his brothers would have sex with a groupie when Michael would pretend to be sleeping and he also saw his father with a woman on each arm.
Events like this during childhood and adolescence can have a profound affect.
I think that most of his energy, creativity and sexual drive was poured into his art and music.
I didn't understand some of his strange antics and in retrospect wonder if they were a cry for help...not just publicity. Given the life he had to live it is small wonder that he would have a unique set of pressures and anxiety.
I do know that his untimely death deeply saddened me and greatly angers me. I hope that everyone who enabled his early demise is punished. It hurts me so much.....I can not imagine how bad it hurts his family and true friends.

pat davis   September 1st, 2009 11:48 am ET

John Sullivan, Welcome to the Michael Jackson Haters Club. Guess what, you are so outnumbered by the Michael Jackson Fan Club. Michael Jackson's legacy will live forever, you tried to cut him to pieces, like many others your attempt is unsuccessful. GQ Magazine should be ashamed to even publish your personal hatred towards Michael and the black race. All that talk about slavery. Who the hell are you? And what the hell do you know about slavery/and or the Jackson Family.? Obviously not much because you spelled the family name wrong! I quarantee you won't be working for GQ in another five years. But guess what Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five legacy will live forever, in their music and their fans. MJ 4 LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mariau: diane sayer she spoke like there’s something wrong with Michael..

It's what I was saying: Lisa is easly influenced, she immediately said she was crack... it's obvious she was ashame.. because of what the other one was saying....

Couldn't believe when she said: " Hey, mom is against it, let's go for it!"
This is the mentality of a 14 years old.. she was 30....
it's obvious she was using him...
It's sad 'cause MJ really loved her.....

Stu   September 1st, 2009 11:54 am ET

Luda,thats what i am talking about.Now i hate that betch Diane Sawyer,and i dont like LMP.She said,she was weird,couse she loved Michael.
Luda,i dont think,she is so inteligent.She talk the vhay like an unadicated person.I think she didnt finish highscoule.Why would she,she got inough money.

Stu   September 1st, 2009 11:56 am ET

Stu   September 1st, 2009 12:07 pm ET

Exactly,that was the next,i was gonna wrighd.How he looked?He lookd very nice and sexy.This Diana would be very lucky,if she would gat a man like Michael.

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 1st, 2009 12:09 pm ET

Hey Diane Sawyer

This is my question to your husband: You married Diane Sawyer, what were you thinking?

mariau   September 1st, 2009 12:09 pm ET

luda – yeah it's sad because i saw those photos LIsa and MJ together i saw MJ's eyes and smile full of love to Lisa.. i know \she used Michael for her personal intentions..

i have pity to Michael, i'm here to blog because i want MJ to know that his fans will always be with him... i couldn't imagine how MJ's suffered on his life.. there's nothing wrong with MIchael there's something wrong to those prejudice people..
when a person was so good the satan will always there to distruct and destroy him..
but MJ was truly God believer, he kept fighting and kept his faith..
ooh MIchael, i just say that you dont deserve this world.. i know you are in a better place and May God bless your soul...

I wonder if any of Lisa's songs were about Michael???

Luda   September 1st, 2009 12:18 pm ET

Stu, she got fame... yes, but the fame comes from her father... if she wouldn't be Elvis dauthger do you tink people would be interested in her???
She didn't make herself... Michael made himself....

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 12:25 pm ET

Hi Everyone:

I think Lisa Marie in that interview sounded like she was ashamed to be married to Michael; like there was somthing wrong–My god Diane Sawyer kept on saying–you married Michael Jackson–Michael Jackson–what about his appearance?–what kind of stupid questions are those–Lisa Marie on that interview did not defend Michael at all

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 12:28 pm ET

Luda–that's right–she was trying to put an album out–who knows why she married Michael–Lisa Marie always seemed troubled to me. Like she was hiding her true self or pretending–she never seemed real to me.

Allure   September 1st, 2009 12:32 pm ET

the interview you're talking about – when was that made?

simba   September 1st, 2009 12:32 pm ET

Back when LMP married Michael Jackson, she was still trying to make it as a rock star. She was looking for musical credibility, and marrying the biggest star in music probably looked like a way for her to get a leg up on her career. It's doubtful that children were ever part of the equation for LMP, especially the children of a black father.

BTW "Prince" is a very common African-American name; the Artist formerly known as, and currently known as Prince was born Prince Nelson.

Obviously the name had great significance for MJ. The most persuasive part of the second love child's claim is the fact that he's named Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson. Back in the day, everybody knew the names of the Jackson brothers, and most knew MJ had sisters named Janet and LaToya. You had to be a real fan to know about Maureen (Rebbie).

But who knew that MJ's grandfather, great grandfather, and great great grandfather were named Prince? It also explains the anomaly in MJ's known sons' names: Michael Jr., called Prince, but not actually named Prince, and Prince Michael II.

mariau   September 1st, 2009 12:34 pm ET

i guess Michael helped Lisa to save them for financial problem as well as the grace land.. that's why Lisa he targeted Michael.

Stu   September 1st, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Thanks for everybody to explaine,how LMP could using MJ,couse i didnt understand.Shame on her!Poor Michael,everything was bad in hes privat life,exept the kids.

Allure   September 1st, 2009 12:49 pm ET

I couldn't find the interview, have you seen it?

Jacquelyn   September 1st, 2009 12:49 pm ET

The media and others did not try to understand Michael.

Tina (Germany)   September 1st, 2009 12:57 pm ET

What made me wonder was the statement that she tried everything to help and became ill etc... after 15 month....I mean 15 month wow, a long time, a long battle, a long quest.....sorry but......what kind of hell must this have been if you are sick after 15 month helping?

That sounds like a story of a woman with a alcohol ill husband that beats her down every day and damages the house every week and nothing there to feed the kids.....

Am I the only one who thinks 15 month are nothing??

Stu   September 1st, 2009 1:01 pm ET

I think so too,15 months is nothing.

lex   September 1st, 2009 1:03 pm ET

wats 15 months im cnfused now lol

Stu   September 1st, 2009 1:05 pm ET

Them marriage.

chris   September 1st, 2009 1:05 pm ET

I don't understand why this writer thinks that "Prince" is a "ridiculous moniker" – to me it's a wonderful & honouable christian name. IMO the writer's rehashing of vicious rumours regarding Michael's looks, nose etc. is extremely OFFENSIVE and IRRELEVENT.

Diane Loser Sawyer's remarks, questions and facial expressions to Lisa Marie were inhumane, hurtful and uncalled for. She deserves a kick in the teeth. Completely unprofessional attacks!

While I have always been hurt and puzzled over Lisa Marie Presley's reaction to Sawyer's questions, I will give LMP the benefit of the doubt by thinking that she, like so many others, was roped in by the media's vilification of Michael. Afterall, the media (& most likely Sony) were powerful enough to do major damage to Michael's career. We fans loved MJ for some of his eccentricities but a lot of people can't handle different & original ways of thinking. Hopefully LMP now feels guilty about being manipulated by the media. Michael was the ultimate gentleman.

Judie   September 1st, 2009 1:06 pm ET

guys don't you think LMP at one time loved him? I do

Tina (Germany)   September 1st, 2009 1:08 pm ET

On her blog she said she tried to safe him, failed the quest to do so, became ill on her own, lost herself, had to flee the situation to become ehalthy again etc. etc. etc and that all within 15 months.

Judie   September 1st, 2009 1:12 pm ET

just remember you are very tense about to be interviewed & DS is saying over & over LM what were u thinking , in a negative way...

mariau   September 1st, 2009 1:17 pm ET

i guess Lisa married Mj for her self interest, like saving greaceland and their financial problem with her mom.. to think that Lisa marie's mom had so much surgeries too..
Lisa used Mj to save them to their financial.. 🙁

JudithL1234   September 1st, 2009 1:27 pm ET

I have delved into the Michael Jackson story, read everthing available, understand MJ's life better now than ever before, and want to say the news media and weird haters have trashed Michael, a sensitive, extremely talented person, for the sake of making money, selling their trashy stories to a public, who undoubtedly has very little time or concern to do actual research on their own. . .therefore they are easily duped into believing garbage about MJ. This entire circus has physically nauseated me, made me ill this summer. After my research I have changed many of my previously held perceptions and now only want MJ to rest in peace, and his children to be left alone so they can grow up somewhat normally, without the media chasing then around. . . .ruining their lives for a buck. I am a retired professional, a mother, a grandmother who loves all of MJ's songs and videos, charities, and listens to his music in my car. Half of the time I feel a tear run down my face as I'm driving because this entire thing is the saddest story I have ever personally researched. Rest in peace Michael.

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 1:39 pm ET

I read Lisa couldn't find Michaels for days... That is no reason for a divorce.... Did she really love him???????????? Lisa Hard to figure out...

MaryRM   September 1st, 2009 1:39 pm ET

The only thing weird about Michael Jackson is the insistence of the media to slander him. The incredible fiction in this and so many (I dare say most) articles, the attempts to insuate oddity in everything is amazing and disturbing. Half of America is probably named after their grandfather, how could anyone claim that is strange? Most of the article is so ridiculously fictitious, one has to wonder what is going on. Is there a media conspiracy? Who owns these media outlets, some kind of ultra-conservative that can't stand the existence of a white black man who is highly gifted, intelligent and lobbies for social justice? Why do they focus so much on his appearance and put him down for it? Would they like to try that with Keith Richards? I thought not.

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 1:42 pm ET

Brook Shields.. What do you think about her????

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Geralda was mad at her Brooke Shields for not being there for Michael in 2005

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 1:47 pm ET

The article at the beginning.. reads Before his weirdness.... What weirdness. Explain this... Did anyone else see anything weird about Michael? .... What are they talking about....

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 1:54 pm ET

the article on CNN about that deadly car crash... Notice the body bag is Blue.... When that DJ was found dead.. his body bag was black.... They took Michael from the Hospital to the helicopter to to Coroner covered him in white... it looked like a sheet....

Roomie   September 1st, 2009 1:56 pm ET

i wrote this back in July, after his memorial. I hope no one minds if I share it here.

Michael Jackson's songs can be recited by generations of people, in different languages, on different continents. Personally rediscovering his less played songs has reminded me what an incredidble artist he was... and how even today, decades after some of these songs were released, their meaning has evolved with maturity.

I grew up in the infancy of the MTV age of Billie Jean and Thriller. I remember watching those videos for the first time (I mean THE first time, squealing with my girlfriends and of course, trying to copy his dance moves.

Captain EO brings back memories for this Californian who took many a trip to Disneyland hoping to see Michael walking around with Mickey Mouse.

Instantly we were interested in MADD because of his song Beat It, especially those in California who knew of the organization long before the rest of the nation because of its origin. We also proudly knew the stories behind the gangs' participation in the video.

President Reagan and Nancy Reagan were suddenly relevant in my generation after seeing Michael being honored at the White House. Sure we knew who our president was, but seeing a young Michael standing there with the president *made* us pay attention.

We were using our father's shaving cream to dot our faces, recreating scenes with Paul McCartney and Michael in front of mirrors singing. We made the famous retort, "I'm a lover not a fighter" from "The Girl Is Mine" on schoolgrounds to end all disputes. We were also suddenly connected to our parents' generation and, back to the Beatles.

Michael firmly cemented our feet in the Pepsi Generation. We watched with anticipation the series of commercials. At restaurants, we began insisting on Pepsi over Coke-Cola. We never swayed because Michael was counting on us to win the Pepsi vs. Coke wars. We rose to the challenge – for him.

I was already a Pepsi fan thanks to my father's need to teach us how to burp the alphabet... much to my mother's horror. This grew to a 3-decade old sibling rivalry as to who was better, and days before my father's passing, we videotaped who would claim the perpetual family title. With undeniable accuracy, clarity, repetition and form, I was honorably crowned by our father himself. (Ok, maybe not so lady-like but hey, Daddy wanted boys.)

Pepsi is a thread in my family history which I remember fondly, and Michael was a part of that.

"We are the World" was on the lips of everyone I knew. We watched as the video played trying to name all the muscians, seeing who could correctly name the most as they flashed on our bulky console TVs. We fought to see who could sing most like our favorite entertainers' parts. Suddenly we understood what charity meant and for many in this generation, it is likely why many of us started giving our money to organizations who vowed to help make the world a different place.

The "Man in the Mirror" kept ringing our ears to constantly reevaluate our own lives. Many of us can say after hearing that song at various times in our lives, we stopped momentarily and said, "I'm going to make a change".

He made us think differently about how we saw the world. In fleeting seconds of time and space he demanded that we "Heal the World" for everyone. Our zip codes expanded from a postal code to reaching out and touching the hand of people in lands across oceans. He united our spirits.

"Earth Song" made us look at what was happening to our world. Children dying, animals killed needlessly for trophy and money, peace spoken but never acted upon, promises made Sundays in churches but never kept. One can not listen to the words of this song and watch the visions that made many turn their heads and say he wasn't trying to force us to focus on change.

He did use his influences to help the world even when we didn't pay attention. Remember him for those things, his undeniable title, self-proclaimed or not, as the "King of Pop" and have compassion on those things which may have been brought upon him by our inaete desire to tear a piece of him away every time we opened our gossip magazines.

May he continue to share his incredible talent among the angels and rest peacefully on puffy clouds while watching over our world

All Rights Reserved.

Michael, may you rest in peace.

Pam   September 1st, 2009 1:58 pm ET

Diane Sawyer should be ashamed of herself...what a disgrace. Disgusting. Lisa Marie is a very disturbed spoiled brat! She was about the same age when she lost her father as MJ's kids are now. Mj was obviously a much better father than Elvis was to have a hand in raising such a self-centered egotistical pathetic person as Lisa Marie.....who now is a fat cow who anyone would say, Lisa Marie Pressly? How could anyone marry that cow?

Sherry   September 1st, 2009 2:01 pm ET

Durig the time ofthe 1st c. mol. case,,,,,,,,,,,,,this kids dad was a dentist,right?!.............if he does this to his own kid,,,,,,,,,,,,wow........

Chandler, it seems, did not follow these guidelines. He had the procedure performed on his son in his office, and he relied on the dental anesthesiologist Mark Torbiner for expertise. (It was Torbiner who'd introduced Chandler and Rothman in 1991, when Rothman needed dental work.)

The nature of Torbiner's practice appears to have made it highly successful. "He boasts that he has $100 a month overhead and $40,000 a month income," says Nylla Jones, a former patient of his.

Torbiner doesn't have an office for seeing patients; rather, he travels to various dental offices around the city, where he administers anesthesia during procedures.

This magazine has learned that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is probing another aspect of Torbiner's business practices: He makes housecalls to administer drugs–mostly morphine and Demerol–not only postoperatively to his dental patients but also, it seems, to those suffering pain whose source has nothing to do with dental work.

He arrives at the homes of his clients–some of them celebrities–carrying a kind of fishing-tackle box that contains drugs and syringes. At one time, the license plate on his Jaguar read "SLPYDOC."

Sherry   September 1st, 2009 2:09 pm ET

A check of Torbiner's credentials with the Board of Dental Examiners indicates that he is restricted by law to administering drugs solely for dental-related procedures. But there is clear evidence that he has not abided by those restrictions. In fact, on at least eight occasions, Torbiner has given a general anesthetic to Barry Rothman, during hair-transplant procedures.

Though normally a local anesthetic would be injected into the scalp, "Barry is so afraid of the pain," says Dr. James De Yarman, the San Diego physician who performed Rothman's transplants, "that [he] wanted to be put out completely." De Yarman said he was "amazed" to learn that Torbiner is a dentist, having assumed all along that he was an M.D.

And to know that there are so many evil vultures preying on his money are the whole world except his fans...

where is the world leading towards? every person does not like to see the success of the other.....needs on money , money money!!

That was equally bad. Priscilla said that she thought Mj married LM because he was the king of pop and her father was king of rock and roll and he used her just for gaining fame.
And LM just sat there not defending MJ and behaving like a little child.

Pren   September 1st, 2009 4:18 pm ET

Hey Stu, I watched this interview on tv a few years ago...but I'll never forget it because I nearly fell for whatever she said. She tried to make it sound almost as if Mj tricked her into marrying him and that she was ashamed to have married him. Truly sad.
I think if MJ was married to someone he truly loved and vice versa, it would have impacted so greatly on his life and helped him cope so much better with all his problems.

stu - MJ was manifpulated long time ago.. there's lot of people around him that their only intentions was to make money for expense of MJ.. if Jermain was involved in this case, well i hope and i guess not..
because Michael truly love Jermain, although they've been separted for long time, but it doesn't mean that they forgot their brotherhood.
Tohme is the strange guy and he should be part of this investigation regarding his estates and all things.
we should consider that this Tohme is the main suspect for all this conspiracy..

Michael didn't need Lisa for fame, he made himself a star!!! Not Lisa!
It's ridiculous!!

MaryRM   September 1st, 2009 4:37 pm ET

It is interesting that Tohme handed over $5 million days/weeks later when the investigation started saying that Michael had GIVEN it to him to keep secured for a house in Vegas. Yeah, I hope they have forensic accountants going over everyone's bank accounts, because that sounds pretty fishy to me. I just keep praying that the truth, whatever it is, comes out.

Pam   September 1st, 2009 5:03 pm ET

I think this article brings up an interesting point. Mj's personal life and stage life blurred together. For all his fame and for being in the public eye for 4 decades, Mj told us hardly anything regarding his personal life. It really is a mystery. His interviews discuss his music and craft but nothing about anything personal. No lovers -male or female- coming forth having had affairs over the years. No pictures of him in restaurants dining with a lover.I think the sad truth is that his personal life was non-existent and empty. His music and public persona was his life. His fans–were his lovers. The world was his stage. The only life he knew was living in a fish bowl. His development was stunted. Everything done in his life was for the "show". He never had a "real" life. He was made of magic and star dust-–but nothing more.

Honestly, all my life i've never seen this kind of disrespect. I 've always known that after someone dies, atleast that's when they get their last respect no matter who they were when alive.MJ's case is one hell of an exception. This man was disrespected and ridiculed in every way possible way one can imagine and he tried to stand still regardless. Now that he is death, why can't people leave him alone?

CNN your choice of articles regarding MJ are just disgusting. Makes my stomach swirl. No respect at all. I'm so upset i think if i keep writing i might get nasty.

Fans i like the fact that even when they post these ridiculous articles concerning MJ, u'all still find a way down the line to change the subject. That's why i keep reading sometimes.

lindafromnewyork   September 1st, 2009 5:49 pm ET

that tohme seemed to control everything–I agree I think that maybe he hired quack Murray-because it doesn't sound to me like Michael had control over anything–i'm not saying that Michael was not a smart businessman but Ithin maybe he gave Tohme too much contol and when he tried to get control back--there was a problem

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 5:58 pm ET

angelswings.... TMZ reported Michael Jackson Cleaning House....Why would he say that...The informer said their will be no burial it is postponed til Sept 3.... which will not be the end because there will be no burial. Have a good night and remember that Michael is pulling the strings to teach the press a lesson.

Gene   September 1st, 2009 6:01 pm ET

The this is it tour... do you really think that is Michael???? Michael doesn't act like that.....on today's....Story on CNN about that deadly accident... there is a body bag over someone that is blue... the DJ died the other day body bag black... Michael was cover in a white sheet.....When do they use white sheets to cover a body... Think about everything that happen to Michael....Listen to all the interviews that he did and what he said and what the media said to him and what he said to the the truth, think about everything that the Media is saying to ruin him and to make us hate him....

Judie   September 1st, 2009 6:12 pm ET

We could never hate him....

Honorine   September 1st, 2009 6:13 pm ET

OMG, just read the article about MJ's charitable work.

It's amazing one single human being will devote that much to help the world. Who knows what he could have done with the earnings from his THIS IS IT tour? Only God at this point.

I miss u always MJ.

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 6:20 pm ET

My kid getting on the computer for awhile.. ..
I am still questioning it but if sept 3 comes and no Burial.. if there is a burial and we have no access to anything...there is something up... every actor.. Major singer we see some sort of coverage on that person... why not Michael...

Brigida, Italy   September 1st, 2009 6:42 pm ET

Sorry, I'm not able to follow all your comments on all blogs. You are too fast! 🙂

Mimi and Gene, I think, a couple of days and you get it all 🙂
But I have the idea that you should go higher than Thome. Don't know why but this man can be as criminal as he seems but something lacks. Think there are others pulling the strings.

Ladies, still with the death hoax? Things has going too far, if Michael is alive and appears now... he would go directly in jail for fraud. Do you have an idea how much police and other investigations are involved since it began? How much tax money has gone? IF Michael is still alive, he never could show his face again.
And what about the fans suicided? I told you, Michael could never live with this fact. Or without having contact with his kids and the family. You know that every step of them is watched and controlled. If they try to reach him, or media or police, they got him.
So please, come down to earth 🙂

Honorine   September 1st, 2009 6:52 pm ET

Guys, till 2day i know it in my heart that MJ was murdered. When i look at the way everything transpired from the day he died, i really don't seem to understand.

Ofcourse the LAPD knew MJ was dead b4 they left his rented home. CPR was done for another 40-45 mins after Murray had tampered with the scene(to begin with, apparently moved the body too). Ok leaving that aside, after they pronounced him death did they not know that an investigation was gonna be on the way? Why didn't they secure MJ's home to prevent tampering with the scene? Coz they probably had ruled his death accidental and wanted to use 'tampering with the scene" as an excuse or something. When things started to heat up and the public demanded answers, they made some gestures. I'm just concerned abou their reluctancy. I think they gave so much room for things to be tampered with which i don't understand why. Usually they are all over issues and on top of things.

B4 i say this i totally don't trust Murray or what he has said as to what we all know by now. He had been administering propofol to MJ for 6 wks and nothing ever happened. What happened on that faithful day other than his attempt to reduce the dosage of propofol MJ was taking. Reports say LETHAL levels were found in his body and we know this medication has a short halflife. What about the quantity that had disappeared in this long time wasted from the time he found MJ not breathing till when the autopsy was conducted? Now he says he only gave him 25miligrams of propofol. Complete bull. Experts say that amount can not be lethal. Ok, maybe the concauction played a role. Didn't murray know what he was doing b4 he did it? CPR on the bed, combination of meds that potentially killed MJ, delayed 911 call in case of emergency, don't know MJ's rented home address(and has been going to this address for the past 6 weeks). Somebody tell me what Murray knew how to do right.Murray was given all the time to schedule a back up plan for himself and cross the t's and dot the i's about it. What he said was what he came up with. Do i believe that's actually what transpired that day? NO.

Now Tohme Tohme is surfacing. Mj was so scared of him and such. I smell something here. They say MJ was so genuine to trust even the wrong persons, now if MJ gets scared of u, then i smell danger. U must be one who could kill him instantly. He faced every lie, media tabloid thrown at him with courage. Propofol which could kill if a little thing goes wrong, MJ wasn't scared to have it administered to him. Then he was scared of tohme tohme. What's up withy that?

Tohme Tohme, whoever he is definitely needs to be investgated. He probably is sitting on the throne to this mistery.

Jackson death certificate reflects homicide ruling
By ANTHONY McCARTNEY (AP) – 36 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson's death certificate has been amended to reflect his cause of death as a homicide, specifying "injection by another" as the fatal injury.

The designation was not a surprise — coroner's officials said last week that they believed Jackson's death on June 25 was a homicide.

Investigators have said a mix of the powerful anesthetic propofol and another sedative killed the pop singer. The new record lists "acute propofol intoxication" as the main cause of death and "benzodiazepine effect" as another significant contributor.

The public copy of Jackson's death certificate has not been changed to reflect his permanent resting place. Jackson is scheduled to be interred on Thursday evening at Forest Lawn Glendale.

The document does not mention Dr. Conrad Murray, who was Jackson's personal physician. He told detectives that he gave the singer a series of sedatives and propofol to try to help him sleep.

The coroner's determination of homicide makes it easier for prosecutors to seek criminal charges, but does not necessarily mean a crime was committed. Authorities investigating the singer's death have served search warrants in at least three states, California, Nevada and Texas.

No criminal charges have been filed over Jackson's death.

Michael Jackson tribute lineup to be unveiled soon
(AP) – 11 hours ago

VIENNA — It's almost as mysterious as Michael Jackson's moon walk.

Fans still don't know who will perform at a major tribute to the late pop star that will be held outside a 17th-century palace in Vienna later this month.

But they will, exactly one week from now: Organizers say Jackson's brother Jermaine will hold a news conference in the Austrian capital next Tuesday to unveil the lineup for the Sept. 26 concert.

Jermaine Jackson has promised that some of the world's top entertainers will perform Michael's greatest hits on a crown-shaped stage being erected outside Vienna's former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace.

He says the event will be broadcast live to 1 billion fans around the world.

Michael Jackson died June 25 in Los Angeles.

MaryRM   September 1st, 2009 8:59 pm ET

Just want to say, as someone who is close to the same age as Michael, I feel I got to know him better over the years than I know many of my coworkers. Although he didn't elaborate on his love-life, he did say he wouldn't talk about it because that is private.

He showed his private home movies to the public, those were lots of fun. Growing up, he and his family were always in some magazine or other talking about their faith and family and lots of other topics. They were on all the variety shows from Ed Sullivan to Sonny & Cher and would usually talk for a minute. There were lots of documentaries and interviews over the years, even short ones. I have been going on youtube and re-watching many of them – they bring back memories – like 'the Making of Thriller" (upside down Michael) and "the Making of We are the World" (when Diana Ross touches his chin and he smiles – he had a crush on her back then). Also friends like Quincy Jones have given us insight about some of his endearing qualities (the real reason he is nicknamed Smelly – he didn't like to use bad language). He was ticklish, loved water fights, Michelangelo and Tudor architecture; loved animals because they, like children, don't judge a person. He was famous but as a Jehovah Witness, he had to (I can't remember the correct term) do a certain number of hours going door to door to give testament. So he would wear a disguise. People have had him in their living rooms and been unaware of it.

I feel we did 'know' him, not completely of course, he has a right to privacy, we are his fans, not his friends. But I think he was a pretty open person, especially in the early years before all the back-stabbing and especially to his fans.

sherry   September 1st, 2009 8:59 pm ET

@@@@@@@@@@@ Anne

what did they say??

Brigida, Italy   September 1st, 2009 9:03 pm ET

And you truely believe, that Police would help Michael Jackson?
Try to think about it: if they where on it so they would have secured immediately the house, had locked some person to make them "sing" and this wouldn't take more than two month! And why the Memorial, all the burial confusion, the ticketing of Tribute (still to come) and so many other things! If it was a trap to get doctors or other criminals... it's gone too far and NEVER Police or the Federals would have done this. Perhaps if there was a big Politician or industrialist... but not for Michael Jackson. You know better than me how big "respect" they had for him in the past.

Please don't think that I wouldn't like to see Michael alive but it's better this way. Imagine only tabloids! If he appears – with all the blessing of the police – they never would forgive him to be cheated by him. Do YOU want him to start all again and worser than before?
Now he is dead and still they go on with garbage, what would it be if...?

Who paid for Michael's Memorial...AEG .... Then AEG charged the Public...Have you ever heard that Elvis memorial service paid charged to view his casket or JFK....or John Lennon Funeral.... AEG sold the This is it's Rehearsal footage to Sony... AEG got there money back... I am putting all this together.... Come on... Really has all this made sense since Michael Died... We don't really have proof that Michael Died... We never seen a body...How come from the first report of drugs change even in weeks later... Why we don't have a hospital report.. why didn't the ER doctor come out with a statement...The Coroner has not made a public statement... The burial keep moving back...

Brigida, Italy   September 1st, 2009 9:36 pm ET

sherry... nothing. But it won't be the first time nor the last. Somebody said it and it will go. Wha'ts about the FBI? Other investigators? Is there nothing more to do? Are they still investigating the case? Why Klein is so afraid and put the kids in again?
Let's hope and pray.

If I was there in LA, I would lock myself outside the policeoffice and go on strike.

I'm very angry now and better go to bed. Even if I'm sure I cannot sleep.
Good night everybody and keep it up! We, outside US, have only you for updates.

Pat Hughes   September 1st, 2009 9:38 pm ET

As a building Code Official in the state of Virginia, I wonder if any complaint had been made regarding the accessory structures constructed on the property without permits. Normally, permits and zoning approval is required for structures such as tents and additions. Were there any complaints made by the neighbors regarding these structures to the city officials and were there any inspections performed? Did the city issue any violation notices issued?

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 9:41 pm ET

And if Michael is alive and came out... I would have more respect for him.... Look how we have protected him from all the Bashing the Media done and said about him since he died... We all stuck together,,, Going back at Martain Bashir... and the others for hurting Michael...This is how much we miss him....

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Do we know for sure if the police aren't getting paid.... This would be no different than bring down other crimes... ..Are you thinking cause it is Michael Jackson... Remember Michael is a Human Being.. a Man no different then us... the only thing sets him apart from us is he is an entertainer....

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Mary U from Ohio – September 1st, 2009 9:35 pm ET

We don’t really have proof that Michael Died… We never seen a body…
Since when is anyone required to give us a visible proof that he is dead?
Think about it: if the body had been exposed (open casket at the memorial), then people (fans and non-fans alike) would have said that this is garish, ghoulish (which would have been perfectly true; I don't think that he would have wanted to have his dead body exposed before thousands of people, plus other millions through TV&net).
And if someone had leaked to the press an autopsy picture or a pic of his body in the casket, you would have been the first to yell: look, the bloody press does anything for money, they don't respect him, how is this possible?
In either case, sceptics won't believe anyway that he is dead and would pretend that the body is a mannequin or the pics are fake. So why bother to "show proofs"?

Sheryl   September 1st, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 10:29 pm ET

Michael person Trainer said in an interview that is on youtube talking on TV interview that Michael had in the pass put Mannequins in Ambulance... So thinking about that the pic we see of Michael in the Ambulance why wasn't he blue... I seen two people that died after an hour even before a hour they were blue... When holding your breath you start to turn blue... explain that one...

I do not want to keep bringing up The Informer's comments again, because I do feel in my heart, that Michael has left this world to go to a better place. However, TI did state that there would be no burial on September 3rd. If they move the burial date again...then I will believe something is going on.

Hi everyone.

My sister heard on the news today that Michaels burial may be delayed again because of the fires. Go figure, how convenient. This whole entire case is a scary and deaply sad carnival ride. Not One piece of proof of anything. All we hear from anyone at all is from media, tabloids and certain family members. It is crazy and frustrating

cc   September 1st, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Man he picked the wrong women. Blessed he soul lisa didnt care much for him she's laughing during interview ashamed that she married him and Diane Sawyer not right either I guess if she married someonelse it be ok. I dont see how he thought she cared for him. wooow. On top of that she didnt even tell her mom it caught her mom by suprise.

Sorry should got a nice sista. She wouldnt been ashamed.

Ronda Wright   September 1st, 2009 10:49 pm ET

I think it's so sad when people feel that they need to make someone else look bad to boost their own ego. Sometimes I think freedom of speech goes too far when so called journalists are allowed to print hurtful words especially when they really DON'T know the truth but they write as if they do. But I say ignorance is still ignorance no matter how some people try to make others believe that they are telling truths just because they are writing a story in a paper or magazine. When these people print these hurtful things now, they are not hurting Michael Jackson anymore. However they ARE hurting a 7 year old child, an 11 year old child and a 12 year old child. Children that are so hurt right now beyond any of our imaginations and would give anything just to be able to see their Daddy and hear him tell them that he loves them again. So to all of you people out there that want to make Michael Jackson look bad and continue to want to try and hurt him you are really just wasting your time because you see to Michael Jackson's creator God [who by the way is also your creator] and the people that really matter, his children, his family, his true friends and his fans you are not achieving anything really so why bother?!

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 11:04 pm ET

angelswings... what would a fire have to do with stopping a Burial.... I sure other people are being buried on that day... I wish there is a way to find out if other people are being buried where ever that fire is... on Sept 3... if they use that for an excuse... then what comes after... another person that is studying this who thing doesn't believe Michael is going to be buried at all.

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 11:11 pm ET

If the Jackson want it private... Why tell the media or the public... We can't be there...

Rhonda, yes an that freaking picture still blows my mind too.

The fires were close to the refuge where Michaels tigers are and they had to evacuate the animals today. I dont know how close it is to Neverland.
My sister had heard that about the burial this afternoon, but I havent watched tv so I havent heard anymore about it. It was something about the air quality or something

the fire I guess is near where he is to be laid to rest go to the blog about dr klien they r talking about it there

Mary U from Ohio   September 1st, 2009 11:24 pm ET

Believe me i was Balling when i first heard of Michael Death... Because.. of him Being such a sweet person.. and how the media ran him down... I felt so much sorrow in my heart.... But as things were developing.. i started questioning.... Watching the "This is it" announcement.... the rehearsal... Things were starting not to add up... Then watching his Home movies, the interviews., Him talking to the people about the Music indusatry... got me thinking... then others started thinking the same way... What did i hate the most media running Michael down...Accusing him of everything under the sun... what if......

angelwings   September 1st, 2009 11:30 pm ET

so true Mary I do agree with you but I think you and I are the only ones on these blogs to believe in TF would be kool if they came back just one more time

This article was reaching. Yes, I had heard from an interview with Michael that his grandfather was named Prince. The problem is since it was not of public knowledge the media slackers took the chance to try to make Michael look like a fool, yet again, by ridiculing the fact that he named his sons, Prince. It was easier to use the reason, that they came up with, that he named them Prince because he thought he was King. That's being a bxtxh for you.

Why the hell was it necessary to speak about his nose? On the picture that a pap snapped and ET keeps showing second by second every night...his nose is on his face...where is always was. mention that he had no hair...What's that got to do with anything? It's been documented that his scalp was badly damaged from the fire on his head...what's wrong with NOT DEALING with getting hair done, if you don't have to. HE WAS A MAN, by the way. Men have bald heads, all the time.

I don't see the problem with him shaving his head...if it was shaved...he could wear his hair HOWEVER he wanted to wear it. Is it all that important to PRINT in magazines and newspapers BS on top of BS trying to be the first to spread a scandalous load of muck to the public?

How do these people sleep at night? Curled up in their Devil's Comforter, I would think.

another stupid article.

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 1:35 am ET

Mary U: There is nothing that the Media could or would say that could make me turn on my Love for Michael. I do not give a D-., what they think or do. No one could make me change but one person and as we all know he is no later here. So, I do not know how the other fans feel but for me the answer is NO WAY........

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 1:51 am ET

Brigida: Why do you think that Michael is ALIVE? Michael would not do this to his kids, he love they everyworld, and especially his MOM. I am not taking to the Hoax's out here that is what they Media's want all his fans to believe, so that WE can dislike him for doin g something like this.

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 1:59 am ET

Honoarine: I've been saying this about Dr Feelgood. He knew exactly what the hell he was doing, and yes he felt that if he was taken to the hospital and he accompany the body, he felt to autospy would be performed on him. Well, it did not work out like he thought it would and now all he keep doing is telling one lie after another.

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 2:06 am ET

Carol K: Pertaining to Michael's estate- he did not leave his sibling anything, it was left to his Mother and Children and Charity, which is 40-40-20 percentage. So, the only way Jermaine had that kind of money is from Tohme, his friend who he introduce to his late brother Michael, may I say more. So if Tohme was stealing from Michael and Michael was unware of what was in his bank accounts where do you think the money was going?

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 2:17 am ET

My thoughts about DA not pressing charges is that IF they allow Dr Feelgood, would cause a BIG problem for them. First, his family is sitting back and wathing the outcome of what is about to go down, and how they handle it. Second- If may start a BIG conterversory around the world, and thirdly, I don't believe Dr Feelgood would be able to practice doctorine anymore and will alway be watching his back, becase one way are another he will pay.

Linda Joyce   September 2nd, 2009 2:33 am ET

According to his doctors and everyone who knew him Michael had his very own nose. Also, people with him at the Staple Center said he was singing like he used to – you can’t do that without a nose.

As for Ian Halperin’s claim that he was gay I don’t care, but can’t believe he could be gay and we haven’t seen books like; “I Was Michael’s Gay Lover #1”, “I Was Michael’s Gay Lover #2”, “I was Michael’s Gay Lover #3”, etc. Actually, Halperin’s book is pure speculation from start to finish, and he predicted Michael would die from a lung disease, not propofol, or any other drug for that matter.

Sullivan was correct about most everything else, especially that Motown 25th Anniversary performance by Michael. It was outrageous. You can find it on YouTube – look for one that ends with the Jacksons and sequences into Michael’s solo performance. That way you get the preamble he does before he performs “Billie Jean”.

Sheletta   September 2nd, 2009 2:43 am ET

Linda Joy: I do not pay that man Ian Halpenn's no attention, especially since he WRITTEN his book Unmask the Man, which I did not buy, out of respect of Mrs Jackson. Her Family lawyer asked use not to buy that unauthorize book that went on sale few day's after Michael death. Beside looking at the review's about the book, he talk about stuff that has already been done or said, and beside who give him the right to call Michael Gay? He states this little bit of info before Michael is not here to defend himself. So F-him, and go to something more postive here.

Alicia from Hawaii   September 2nd, 2009 5:02 am ET

Hi Everyone, being on Hawaiian time, I miss the active blogging, but when I got home from work I read them all. I hate this article so much, that I wrote an email to GQ magazine letting them know what I thought of it. I am glad you all felt the same.

Also, thanks for all the links and videos. I would like to be in the gold pants fan club....WOW!

I noticed that there was another alicia on here tonight, so I changed my name to Alicia from Hawaii.

I love you forever, Michael Joseph Jackson!

akshara   September 2nd, 2009 5:23 am ET

I hope that michael gets justice....the police should get to the core of the case and prove that it was a murder.

My heart goes out to katherine jackson....she has seen it all in her life.
the success of her son, the downfall the love n now the tragic death..

we pray that she survives all the odds and has a lot of strength.

céline FR   September 2nd, 2009 9:31 am ET

Hi mariau
thank u for posting this great article
good choice for the song and nice pictures
TY 🙂

Jescol   September 2nd, 2009 10:31 am ET

I can believe I read what I did.OMG!!you'll never get enough of it but me myself I don't want to hear, read or know anymore of this.Let GOD and only HIM be the judge,that's the way it's supposse to be.Give his family and his kids, especially them, the respect they deserve.The respect you didn't give to MJ.As for me I think I don't need to enter your site to see these stupid articles anymore.Bye-bye and God bless you.

Bobbie   September 2nd, 2009 11:07 am ET

This is such a horrible and disgusting article. The media needs to shut up and stop talking garbage and let this man rest in peace. Did any one of these journalists and reporters stop to think that his kids would read these stupid things? I think if everyone in the world would stop buying tabloids and all of those kinds of magazines that report garbage and lies, eventually there would be no more of them, and I think MJ would be very happy about that. Rest in peace angel !!!!!

sandy   September 2nd, 2009 12:08 pm ET

what trash!
Michael you were , are and will always be loved and respected. Our, my loyalty is yours for eternity.

v   September 2nd, 2009 12:22 pm ET

That was the problem, I think...this culture had to know everything about the boy, about the man...we took as much as we could and now we continue to take with speculative articles like these. I did like that you remembered the genius in the music. No one, no one can take that away...although I am afraid his best years of mentoring young musicians, continuing to be innovative in film and recording and writing music and those very deep thoughts in his poetry...we did lose that with his untimely death at the hands of someone who should have been taking care of him rather than giving into the pleas of someone who could not help themself. Please try to give the man some respect in terms of his children, they lost a Daddy ... leave them alone.

Nancy Endari   September 2nd, 2009 1:07 pm ET

To J.J Sullivan, GQ manazine

save your comment somewhere else and eat it yourself!
You obviously have not done your research on MJ, seriously deep research on him! This comment based on your narrow minded mind/opinion. You have no respect at all! You took your insight from Ian Halperin? Please do more research on this self claimed biographer of MJ! You can not sway all of us who love Michael and believe in him. Some people like you are just ignorant!

Kathe   September 2nd, 2009 1:34 pm ET

This is totally disgusting . . .Larry, what is the matter with you and CNN? I thought that you were good friends with Jermaine . . . obviously not! I really wish that everyone would leave MJ alone. Truly I think that there are many who are jealous of him and everything that he stood for. What a wonderful person . . . if only more of this universe were like him, this world would truly be a better place. You will never convince his TRUE FANS that any negativity about MJ is true. I miss him . . . my days have never been the same since his passing. I feel as though I lost a part of me when he died. Someone like MJ only come along once in a lifetime . . . I am so happy that I got to witness this wonderful person who gave so freely of himself to all of us. His example is one that we can all learn from. Forever in my heart MJ.

Brigida, Italy   September 2nd, 2009 2:11 pm ET

How do you get the idea that I believe MJ is alive? I said nothing like this! Please read my comments again. I never believed TI or others like him/her and IF he is still alive, his life would be the hell much more than before. Now he is out of this crap and trouble, he found peace and nobody can harm him anymore. And this is the only way for me to get over this too.

btw... good afternoon/evening @all 🙂
I'm glad that there are time zones! So, when I go out to do my job. you in US are sleeping and I don't have to read to much to stay behind you ^_______^

Lynda Hansen   September 2nd, 2009 2:15 pm ET

Aaawwwwwwwwww, cC'mon CNN and Larry King,,,,,,,I am very disappointed in this article being put out. That really shows a lack of professionalism Journalism. You just went down a notch for me. A BIG notch!!!

Linda   September 2nd, 2009 2:34 pm ET

Larry what kind of garbage is this? I think I'll stop reading this yellow journalism and stop watching your show if you continue this Fox-like Nancy Grace type of slanderous slop!

STOP......STOP..............Stop and leave his kids alone!

Linda   September 2nd, 2009 2:49 pm ET

JJ SULIVAN Some people will do anything for money. Some people's careers are built on tearing down others. You would think that someone like you could find better things to do with your obvious talents. How little you know about the friends of Michael Jackson.

LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE! You are a truly a vulture, preying on the dead. Preying on someone who cannot defend himself. You are a Savage!

vicky   September 2nd, 2009 2:52 pm ET

WHY would CNN waste the space for a story like this? Are you kidding me? CNN is now part of the paparazzi and all the made-up crap stories that goes along with it.

Triny   September 2nd, 2009 3:33 pm ET

This article is ridiculous! You can't put a person under anesthesia for days! That alone would kill a person! These people need to get their facts straight!

Alicia from Hawaii   September 2nd, 2009 5:20 pm ET

Here is something I got from the HTWF website. To offset this horrible article a bit....

Written by: Jeff Koopersmith (one of the few opinion journalists to defend MJ): I never believed that Michael Jackson did what the publicity-seeking LA Police Dept. and a twisted, fame-grabbing district attorney crammed down the insensitive, sycophatic media's throats. Of course, Jackson was acquitted. Now he is gone, and all I gave him was my courage that he was just as he said: a man who loved children, and a childhood that was robbed from him by us. Michael Jackson was one of the most talented performing artists of the 20th century. Instead of simply celebrating the joy Jackson brought a worldwide audience, dead-tree outlets and cable bobbleheads obsess over the more tawdry and seemingly inexplicable facets of his too-short lifetime. I once claimed that we had lynched Michael Jackson. I stand by that opinion. I will miss him. We will all miss him.

Patty Anderson   September 2nd, 2009 5:26 pm ET

Alicia from Hawaii would you please post that on the other blogs as well for all the fans to see Please

Alicia from Hawaii   September 2nd, 2009 6:15 pm ET

Patty, I posted it on "We killed Michael Jackson". What others should I post on?

Glad you liked it. Go to HTWF website, to member forum, there is a blog started called "People are speaking up for MJ, join them please" it has other nice words from people, including Mathew Semino and others who knew MJ. It's a great forum for people like us : ) lovers of MJ and die hard fans.

Patty Anderson   September 2nd, 2009 6:19 pm ET

Here's something for everyone
Hoax Video Of MJ Creates Online Stir

(1-9-2009) A hoax video purportedly showing Michael Jackson emerging from a coroner's van was an experiment aimed at showing how quickly misinformation and conspiracy theories can race across the Internet, German broadcaster RTL said Tuesday.

The video was posted by RTL on YouTube for a single day a week ago and received 880,000 hits. The broadcaster has since removed the video from YouTube, but it has been picked up by other Web sites around the world.

"We wanted to show how easily users can be manipulated on the Internet with hoax videos," spokesman Heike Schultz of Cologne-based RTL told The Associated Press. "Therefore, we created this video of Michael Jackson being alive, even though everybody knows by now that he is dead – and the response was breathtaking."

The video – posted under an "anonymous source" – shows a coroner's van entering what seems like a parking garage and the King of Pop getting out of the back with another person. The lighting is bad, the sound muffled and the footage appears amateurish.

"Unfortunately, many people believed it was true," Schultz said. "Even though we tried to create the video in a way that every normal user can see right away that it is a fake."

He said the video was shot near Cologne – "definitely not in the U.S." The van in the video had the word "CORONER" printed in English, suggesting it had been recorded in America.

RTL admitted to the hoax in an Aug. 26 report on its daily news show Explosiv.

Hoaxes and rumors commonly spread like wildfire on the Internet. Videos of flying saucers and impossible stunts routinely are among the most-viewed on video-sharing sites, though purported evidence of the deceased being alive is less common than false rumors of someone's death.

The rise of Twitter and its real-time microblogging has quickened the pace. American actor Patrick Swayze, who is battling pancreatic cancer, had to declare that he is still alive this year after thousands of Twitter users spread news that he was dead. Actor Jeff Goldblum had to do the same.

The RTL spokesman said some Jackson fans were upset by the German broadcaster's actions.

"We didn't want to dishonor Michael Jackson, but we needed a strong name to get this experiment going," Schultz said. "Had we used Britney Spears, then the fans of Britney would have complained."

By Alan Duke

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) - A judge Wednesday approved Katherine Jackson's request that Michael Jackson's estate get the bill for the cost of this week's burial of her son.

A private funeral for Michael Jackson, here in 2002, will be held Thursday in Glendale, California, his family says.

More than two months after his death, the pop singer will be interred in a private ceremony Thursday evening at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, the Jackson family said.

A short hearing was held Wednesday morning before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff to consider Katherine Jackson's petition.

The special administrators of his estate - in control of the purse strings until the will is probated - did not object to the Jackson family's request.

The cost of the burial is a secret - kept under court seal by Beckloff's order - but it is believed to include paying Glendale police to handle traffic and security around the cemetery.

The ceremony, which will be closed to the public and news media, is set for 7 p.m. at the cemetery's Holly Terrace in the Great Mausoleum, a family spokesman said.

On July 7, Jackson's family and friends gathered at Forest Lawn's Hollywood Hills cemetery for a short service just before a public tribute to the singer in downtown Los Angeles.

Jackson hoax 'experiment,' broadcaster says
Jackson's death was a homicide, coroner rules
Drugs that killed Jackson for clinical use only, experts say
In Depth: Michael Jackson
There has been widespread speculation about the whereabouts of Jackson's body. It has remained a closely guarded secret.

The pop star's siblings and parents have been divided over where to bury him, several family members have said.

Older brother Jermaine Jackson has said he wanted the singer to be buried at his former Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara County, California, while others have objected.

The burial comes less than a week after the Los Angeles County coroner made public his conclusion that Jackson's June 25 death was a homicide. The coroner ruled that the anesthetic drug propofol and the sedative lorazepam were the primary drugs responsible for the death.

Los Angeles police detectives have not concluded their criminal investigation into the singer's death. No one has been charged

Shelley   September 2nd, 2009 6:42 pm ET

I'm disgusted that an article about not having a nose/etc is on Larry King's blog website- and that man (Larry King) is going to Michael's private burial?
Larry King should be ashamed to have allowed this on his blog website. Seriously

Alicia from Hawaii   September 2nd, 2009 6:45 pm ET

The new Thriller blog or the old one. I posted it on the new one...

Kathy Foster   September 2nd, 2009 7:06 pm ET

Although I am tempted to lash out in defense and protection of Micheal of all the nonsence and mean things being repeated and written about him, I won't. And I won't because that's not who he was. He most always held his tongue even when being attacked. He was certainly raised by a very loving, respectful mother to have taught him such wonderful, loving ways. I do so feel he attempted to be walk in peace and treat others with love and dignity. He managed to follow God's most important commandment of loving one another as God loves us. With that being said, I would like to state no matter what his nose, body, or anything looked like, no matter the rumors, none of them matter. For the very few things people found in attempt to hurt him and pick him apart, his wonderous spirit while here on this earth far supercedes all of the bs. He was all heart, that he was. So that's all that really matters.

Alicia from Hawaii   September 2nd, 2009 7:28 pm ET

Thank you Kathy Foster, that was really nice, and so true

Sheryl   September 2nd, 2009 8:47 pm ET

Kim from MN   September 2nd, 2009 10:45 pm ET

I have been reading the comments from the faithful followers on the LKL blogs for the past two months (way to go MJCSI peeps!) and Michael would be touched at the love that you have extended to him.

I laughed so hard with the expieriment that Rhonda (I believe this is who did it) tried with the picture taking of inside the ambulance and came back that no you can't get a picture! I also took another look at the last picture of Michael when I read the comment that it looked like him from the 80's or 90's – there could be a debate on this and it also doesn't look like the mouth piece isn't covering his mouth all the way that it's hooked up to the oxygen pump.

Do I believe that Michael is stil with us? In my heart he is. Do I wish that Michael was still with us? More than any one will ever know. Do I believe that Michael is still alive? I want to.

Tomorrow our beautiful Michael is to be buried and even with that I don't know if I will ever really believe that he is gone. I cry every day for him, stare at that beautiful smile and yes, shudder when I look at him in those gold pants! HE WAS, IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE HOT AND SEXY!!!

To all the Michael haters of the world – please leave him alone (and shame on you!). Let him be at peace.

And rock on to all of his fans who have united! Michael knows how much we loved him and always will.

spirit   September 3rd, 2009 12:07 am ET

We LOVE u Michael regardless of what media claims even after your death & we KNOW you are at peace... Such a sweet, gentle soul! God will keep you in peace...

& I would be saying only one thing to the gentleman writing this article: " Stop speculating things & leave Michael alone... We don't want you to tell us about autopsy & all... Michael is loved all over the world by his devoted fans...& He'll live forever & be loved forever...God be with him..."

spirit   September 3rd, 2009 12:10 am ET

& look @ the title "How little we knew"...
YES! you actually know nothing... you know nothing of the magnanimity & the beauty of the soul called Michael & you also don't know how much love & respect he still commands even after his death... WE LOVE HIM...

spirit   September 3rd, 2009 12:14 am ET

one more thing... worry about your nose! & stop poking it into the lives of people you know little about...

marianne   September 3rd, 2009 12:52 am ET could you? how could you? put something like this here...i trusted you!!!!!!! i trusted your sources...and this?

i cant believe this.....CNN and LKL are the only ones i rely on.....this is disgusting!!

Veronica   September 3rd, 2009 9:13 am ET

When is all the bs about MJ gonna stop? Is it so hard to understand that he was a better man than probably most of us. He really used his God-given talents. MJ was a musical genius, no doubt there. But why should the world question him as a person. He was mocked for bleaching his skin – well, he really did have vitiligo. Maybe God gave him that to show that it really doesn't matter if you're black or white. MJ was still MJ. And why should people keep mentioning the molestation charges in their articles? He was acquitted. They were only after his money. He opened up his Neverland Ranch to sick, disabled and poor children. He did that out of pure love. How many adults truly care like that. "Jesus said to love the children and be like the children-to be youthful and innocent, and be pure and honorable," MJ truly lived that way, and I strongly believe the world would be a better place if everyone was like that. Everyone who talks MJ down and loves the lies about him should take a look at the man (woman) in the mirror. Thankyou MJ for your undying effort to make the world a better place.

Danielle   September 3rd, 2009 11:25 am ET








Michael Babe, two months without you, is

Laurie   September 3rd, 2009 4:59 pm ET

you know , never talk ill of the dead, and furthermore people should see the good he has done on this earth like all the charities he gave to. NO ONE as ever acknowledged that at the time he was here and he never boasted or talked about it himself. But funny they say when Madonna or Angelina does charity work.

no wonder he went into hiding to give everyone a chance to find out the good he has done.

Hes alive you know , to many strange things around his so called passing

Karissa   September 3rd, 2009 5:06 pm ET

Lynda Hansen   September 3rd, 2009 7:56 pm ET

Boooooooooooooo Hisssssssssssssssss Hissssssssssss Shame on this article and the supposed "Journalist" who wrote it. AND shame on you CNN for putting it out there. What a bunch of Schmuks.

Cali MJ Fan   September 6th, 2009 3:18 am ET

This is a repost of someone's comments– and truly fitting.
Sunset in the Pacific September 4th, 2009 3:53 pm ET

I wish I had to time cross post this on every Michael Jackson Blog on LKL.

September 3rd was a fitting tribute and dignified ceremony honoring one of the most beloved entertainers of all time. The guest list and the attendance spoke of well deserved respect and affection bestowed both on the deceased and for the family. And once again the children made a poignent statement through their love and final gestures.

Not one circumstance, lie, truth or rumor will ever change the finality of last evening. Many virtual friendships and connections seemed to have been made by all the cross-posters who attended these Blogs, as well as creating other opportunities to visit off-line websites.

As a mark of honor and in good taste, Larry King Live & CNN Webmasters, why not close down the Blogs that continue to enflame speculation for no good reason any longer.

To truly allow the family, friends and fans some lasting peace and consideration.
