Michael Jackson reaches his 'final resting place'

Posted: 07:37 AM ET

Michael Jackson's family and about 200 of their closest friends gathered on a hill Thursday evening for their final farewell to the pop singer, who died 10 weeks ago.

Jackson's burial may lay to rest some of the mystery and controversy that erupted with his sudden death on June 25.

His large family was divided over where the superstar's final resting place should be, but matriarch Katherine Jackson settled on a crypt inside the well-guarded and ornate Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California.

Thursday's service began 90 minutes past the announced start time, leaving dozens of celebrities - including Elizabeth Taylor - waiting in their seats for the 26 cars carrying the Jackson clan to arrive.

It began with Jackson's five brothers - each wearing a single sequined glove - carrying his flower-covered bronze casket onto the outdoor stage among six large bouquets of white lilies and white roses, along with green topiaries.

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 8:21 am ET

No Media... Jermaine wasn't looking at you for a long time because it was all finally sinking in that it was real cause you were there... He looked at you for the long time.... absorbing you Media gathered there are the ones who did this to him.

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 8:30 am ET

Michael.... all we have is you memories..

mariau   September 4th, 2009 8:38 am ET

If I could have just one wish,
I would wish to wake up everyday
to the sound of your music in my heart,
the warmth of your voice on my soul,
the touch of your lyrics on my spirit,
and the feel of your endless love to the world...
Knowing that I could never find that feeling
with anyone other than you.

Michael Jackson you are truly sweet, and kind.. your words, your music, your action, and everything what you've done in this world.
Thank you God for giving us Michael Jackson he was truly inspirational in his words, music and his legacy always remind us that. It doesn’t matter what your Age, Gender, race, education, income, Religion he broke down barriers of every nation to feel us “We are One”.. “We are the world”. To unite and give peace on Earth.

Michael always remind us in his Music that God promises to stand by you, He will protect you, He will guide you, He will support you, He will heal you, He will teach you, And He will love you. Michael believed that it’s possible to heal the world if we should share love and act together.

By our awareness to be part of healing the world by giving your effort of Humanitarian and charity
feed the hungry care for the sick offer rest for the weary comfort the oppressed strengthen the weak
strikes down the wicked reward Hard work and determination praise the faithful No child of God will leave behind.

He know sometimes life are difficult and harsh but the choices offered seems so soft, Michael always believed that if you do one thing to God all He asks is that you try your best and in return you will be blessed.. and the blessing we received from God should share to those people needs help.

Michael reminds us that God promises you to be there to give a helping hand. God hears you, He always listen no matter what, where or when He understands you, Just leave everything to God….He spoke this words of love in his music. Michael believed that “We are the world” and “ We can heal the world.” For better future.

Thank you Michael, you will forever live in our hearts.. May God bless your soul our King of Pop. We love you always.

I agree with your comment on Jermaine and the media.

very hard watching last night

katara   September 4th, 2009 8:51 am ET

Rest in peace, Michael.

You will always be in my prayers.

Maureen (UK)   September 4th, 2009 9:01 am ET

May the heavens open to greet you Michael, RIP.

Celeste Hardy   September 4th, 2009 9:01 am ET

Michael, an ocean of tears cried for you, sleepless nights; your death has impacted each of us in so many levels of grief. We look to the Heavens and we know God put you in such a special place, fit only for the King of Pop, the King of Music, the King of Dance, the King of Creativity, the King of Humility! Now, when I need an angel to watch over me, I shall call out your name and I know you will be there to surround me in your angel wings of love and peace.
I will forever be a fan; forever heartbroken. StarCeleste

SuzieCanada   September 4th, 2009 9:10 am ET

Au Revoir Michael, the sweetest and most talented person to ever grace this earth. The day I see you again will be a happy one. In the meantime, Rest in Peace Your Majesty.

Patty Anderson   September 4th, 2009 9:18 am ET

Good Morning everyone.

Mariau so beautifully said. That is very wonderful.... Thank you.

Very difficult night and day yesterday.
They said this morning Katherine had a very difficult time and had to be helped to the car after the ceremony.
I pray for God to help her heal,
Now the time comes for us fans to pick up and keep Michaels legacy alive. We must never let his memory and his purpose here on earth die.
I layed awake most of the night thinking of things I could do to follow Michaels wishes. To make the worl a better place...

lindafromnewyork   September 4th, 2009 9:19 am ET

Hi Patty

Patty Anderson   September 4th, 2009 9:24 am ET

SuzieCanada   September 4th, 2009 9:28 am ET

Hi Patty, Linda, everyone,

Lori, thank you for the beautiful poem on the welovemichaeljosephjackson website. These are exactly my feelings you put into such beautiful words. Glad I'm not working today because I can't stop crying ...

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 9:34 am ET

Hope that someone from the family was at the crypt site to make sure they put the casket in without it being tampered with! So sad!

The effect of his death with go on for quite a while!

As to Lisa Marie being there and being so emotional.....I think she truly loved him! If only you can turn back the clock!

lindafromnewyork   September 4th, 2009 9:36 am ET

I was surprised to hear that Lisa Marie was there-I think she really did love him too.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:41 am ET

Lat night watching it just killed me to see his childeren and his mother....I could not sleep.......I will be on later


Maryg   September 4th, 2009 9:45 am ET

How would I get on the welovemichaeljackson website. Is that on facebook? I can google it but I am not understanding how to get on the blog. Can anyone help.
Ps: mariau: beautiful words. I am feeling more sad today. So final. So wrong.

lindafromnewyork   September 4th, 2009 9:53 am ET


It is welovemichaeljosephjackson dot com

lindafromnewyork   September 4th, 2009 9:54 am ET

I typed it like that so that it doesn't get taken out

Maryg   September 4th, 2009 9:59 am ET

Thanks linda. But when I open the page the last comments are of august 27th. At the bottom of the page, it says 'older articles"How do I get to the current discussion.

pat davis   September 4th, 2009 10:02 am ET

How sad was last night? Michael Jackson has truley been laid to rest. Now the negativity will really begin! There will be stories coming out of the woodwork. I have a few of my own that I would love to share. I grew up with the Jackson 5. I've been a Michael Jackson fan since I was 10 years old. I had ALL their records/albums. I Want You Back, A B C, Never Can Say Goodbye. I bought Right On magazines just for the articles and the posters of Michael and the Jackson 5. My room was covered with them. In the 70's I saw the Jackson 5 in concert at the Springfield Civic Center, in Springfield, MA. In 1988 I stood in line for at least 3 hours for tickets to the Bad Tour, in Hartford, Conn. About 7/8 months later I was lucky enough to land tickets AGAIN to the Bad Tour, at the Meadowlands Arena, in New Jersey. Today I feel so fortunate that I had the priviledge of see Michael live! Those are moments in my life that I will treasure forever. It's unfortunate that we will never have the priviledge of seeing Michael perform live again. I made a promise to myself that I would honor Michael's legacy by listening to a Michael Jackson/or Jackson song everyday for the rest of my life! So far I have. Usually I am listening to one of his CD's in my car, if I don't go out I'll watch his video's on TV or on my computer. I have listened to Michael everyday since he's been gone, and I will continue to do so. That is how Michael Jackson will continue to live on in my life. I have one more story I would like to share, August 1st. I was driving home from running errands listening to Another Part Of Me. I turned down this winding road that leads to my house, it was just before dark and all of a sudden I saw the biggest, brightest shooting star ever! I actually saw a star with all five points, it was bright and shinny, with steaks of light behind it. It was amazing! I've seen shooting stars before but never like this. A few days later I got on my computer to watch and listen to one of my favorite Jackson songs, Can You Feel It, and to my suprise the video starts off with a scene of a shooting star! I was speechless! I felt as if I saw Michael Jackson, in the Heavens, in the image of a Shooting Star. A Big, Bright, Shinny Star. I really beleive that, and no one can convince me otherwise! God Bless Michael Jackson, and his Beautiful Soul. God Bless His Family, and His Children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket. GOD BLESS THEM ALL! MJ4LIFE!

How are you guys

Anne   September 4th, 2009 10:33 am ET

Was the part of the funeral service that we did not get to see filmed for commercial purposes?

lindafromnewyork   September 4th, 2009 10:36 am ET

I think maybe–it might be part of the Movie

Anne   September 4th, 2009 10:40 am ET

Has everybody already read this? I really think MJ was backed into a corner with no way out. Randy Phillips called it a "do or die moment". No wonder he could not sleep.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:43 am ET

Hi everybody,
Linda in that site in which blog you are?

Pam   September 4th, 2009 10:49 am ET

I wish I could have known him. He sounds like he was a terrific friend in addition to being a wonderful entertainer. I am surprised at how much his passing saddens and angers me. It wasn't until his death that they have shown so much of the charitable and wonderful things about him. Why didn't the media emphasize that more when he was alive? Instead we just saw the things we did not understand and heard about the bad things and false accusations.

Deb Looney   September 4th, 2009 10:51 am ET

To See You once Again

I see you in the Heavens dear
Can you see me, standing oh, so near?
Smiling widely, take my hand
We will skip along, to Neverland

Playing, jumping up, and down
Spinning quickly, round, and round
Clap your hands, now stomp your feet
Imagine swaying, to the beat

I see you with your eye's of laughter
Go wih me now, to Ever After
Your beuatiful voice, how I love your face
You were filled with, ever lasting Grace

I strain to see your smile once more
Peeking out from Heavens door
I'm sure your face, again I'll see
When we finally meet, in eternity

Until then, your love is safe with me
Your memory will, forever be
We miss you now, but not for long
Just can't believe you're gone.

Gone from our presence, but not from our hearts. RIP Michael....our Angel. Never can say goodbye!!!

We Love you More!!!

Though you're far away...we are here to stay

Brigida, Italy   September 4th, 2009 10:52 am ET

Rest in peace sweet angel...

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:53 am ET

Good Morning and thank you Katherine for sharing a part of the funeral with us. It was a challenging night, emotionally draining but I really appreciate that we as the public were able to watch some of it.
RIP Michael you will forever be missed and loved something fierce.

Lora Ottawa Canada

I'm with you, I hope someone from the family stayed behind to make sure of that.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 10:53 am ET

I still cant beleive this is so I hope he was still here........but after last night seeing his childeren and now knows he is really gone I loved Micheal for over 35 years and I will still love you till my time is done here on earth.............

Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:02 am ET


Just got done reading it thank you and yes it does seem that way doesn't it? Bless his heart. We love you MJ.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 11:05 am ET

sorry guys – today is very taugh day for all of us.. and some of us still can't help to cry.. words coulcn't explain how deeply sad of losing a great man.
we should stick and stand together at least to find out what is the truth about his death.
our prayers and hope is the best to show how much we love him.
we should keep his legacy and pass it on to the next generation and let them know how great was Michael Jackson.
His name will never fade away in this earth. we should pass it on ...
i think thats the best gift we give to Michael..

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   September 4th, 2009 11:12 am ET

My G-d, I really cried.

I was so impressed of the children. Paris is really a smart girl. I also saw a photo with both Prince and Blanket with tears in their eyes. It really breaks your heart they must miss their father at such a young age. I was happy the family let us see more than I had expected. It was emotional to see the casket coming again.

Lisa Marie apparently in tears, Elisabeth Taylor as the last one in line touching the coffin in her wheelchair, and Diana Ross again absent.

I really need a break this weekend. It was hard for the people overseas to keep awake until so late and on top of it CNN International switched off LKL and changed into CNN Hong Kong. Fortunately the BBC continued the airing, with an outstanding program and very inetersting guests.

Hi mariau

Yes tough day for us all... After getting over the initial shock of his death 2 months ago, then trying to work through who will be held responsible for this, and finally witnessing his final resting stage I'd say it's been a hell of a 2 months. I just pray that justice will be served.

Samantha - South Africa   September 4th, 2009 11:30 am ET

"They say that some of the stars that you see overhead aren’t really there. Their light takes millions of years to reach us, and all we are doing is looking into the past, into a bygone moment when those stars could still shine. "So what does a star do after it quits shining?" I ask myself. "Maybe it dies." "Oh, no," a voice in my head says. "A star can never die. It just turns into a smile...." – Michael Jackson

Michael,you have achieved eternity and will forever remain alive in each of our hearts............I love you.

"I'll never let you part
For you're always in my heart."

Kara   September 4th, 2009 11:32 am ET

I was very pleased to see that the family made this a very private and wonderful tribute to the brother, son and FATHER. There are many sad strings to the death of such a wonderful person, but the saddest is the fact that you have seen the children quickly “grow up”. I think that as much as everyone wants them to do just as Michael wanted, and that was be children… with the passing of their father, it is human nature for them to grow up sooner than they should and you have seen this especially in Prince and Paris and they tend to, care for and comfort blanket through this time. I just pray they hold Michaels love and lessons close as they find a way to carry on in life.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 11:41 am ET

hi mara – i agree with you.. just pray and hope Justice for Michael..

Mara   September 4th, 2009 12:15 pm ET

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 12:16 pm ET

HI stu – how are you today?

Mara – i'm still here with you.. yes i hope Larry p\ut Miko..

Lori   September 4th, 2009 1:00 pm ET

I am praying for the Jackson Family and sending them positive energy. This has truly been a summer of mourning. There are no words to describe life without Michael. My heart breaks for his parents, siblings, children, nieces, nephews, his extended family, and cherished friends. May they find resolution and closure.

As one of his legion of fans, I can only say a final thank you for all the joy Michael’s music brought to my life. I have attempted over the past weeks to put my feelings into words. I cannot believe that he is gone, though the evidence that he is has been before my eyes, and my tears fell continously during both the Staples Center Memorial and the Forest Lawn Funeral. I know that he will be remembered for the uncomparable genius, perfectionist entertainer, humanitarian, and unique person that he truly was.

This final service was beatiful and perfect for him. Last night's ceremony was the ultimate closing moment of an unique life.

He was loved. He will be greatly missed. His legend will live forever.

Blessings and peace. I love you, Michael.


Stu   September 4th, 2009 1:04 pm ET

I am in every blog.
Hi Mariau!

marilou   September 4th, 2009 1:06 pm ET

@SuzieCanada September 4th, 2009 9:28 am ET

Lori, thank you for the beautiful poem on the welovemichaeljosephjackson website. These are exactly my feelings you put into such beautiful words. Glad I’m not working today because I can’t stop crying
Thank you Suzie. It was hard to write it through the tears. It is my gift to Michael and to all of you that I have met on the LKL blogs during this summer of mourning. It helps to share this grief and anger with all of you. Love and Peace.

Lori 🙂

mariau   September 4th, 2009 1:13 pm ET

hi Lori – how are you? 🙂

Lori   September 4th, 2009 1:20 pm ET

@MarieU and everyone...

I am teary eyed and bleary eyed. 🙁 And everytime I read the poem I wrote I cry more so maybe I need to quite doing that. Now that it is posted, on Jacquelyn's site, I still want to make revisions. I guess I am like Michael in that respect. (Thanks Jacquelyn 🙂 for posting it)

Even though we all knew that this day would eventually come, it was still much harder than I thought it would be.

Don't let thoughts of the Informer bring false hope which will lead to more prolonged grieving. I do not think we will ever hear from The Informer again. Now is the time for acceptance and resignation. Trying to believe it myself. The world is not as bright without Michael in it.

Allure   September 4th, 2009 1:30 pm ET

Hi guys
I feel like a bird with broken wings today.........

Rest in Peace, sweet Michael

Dirty Diana   September 4th, 2009 1:32 pm ET

Beautiful and dignified ceremony last night. Michael would be proud, especially of his children.
I love the photos chosen for the invitation and the stage. He looks beautiful and happy; just how he would want to be remembered.

Allure   September 4th, 2009 1:33 pm ET


Crying helps a lot.......
I do it almost every time I watch Michael's videos, why not

mariau   September 4th, 2009 1:34 pm ET

lori – allure - we know this is hard day for all of us.. since last night..
it's like the clouds turns into gray.. even we try not but still we can't ..
i cried out loud for the lost of our King of Pop.. and really hard to imagine.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 1:37 pm ET

wait i saw that Cnn put MJ's gold pants photo last night in anderson cooper while they were reporting the breaking news.. i think they got it from here in this blog..
at least they are not using 2 photos only..

mariau   September 4th, 2009 1:39 pm ET

allure – yes used to cry everynight.. when i'm watching him.. especially the videos about his case and he was found not guilty.. i cry and i cry..

Lynn-IL   September 4th, 2009 1:59 pm ET

That is interesting. I figured that the informer was gone for good because he/she had said that the funeral would not happen. . .and then sadly it did. I have searched all of the blogs for a post from the informer but found nothing. I wonder if we will ever hear from the informer again?

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:02 pm ET

Lynn-IL – i guess that informer just a joke for us..

Mara   September 4th, 2009 2:05 pm ET


Who was the lady to the left of Janet with the long black curly hair? Was that Tatiana. I'm just curious.

Mara   September 4th, 2009 2:07 pm ET

A few isles to the back left.

Mara   September 4th, 2009 2:29 pm ET

Lora Ottawa

Thanks yes now I remember her interview on CNN. I wonder who designed/approved the list of those who attended.

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 2:29 pm ET


The casket was not open at the ceremony and I doubt it was open inside the mausoleum

Hope a witness for the family was there to see the body interred without it being violated or robbled by the people putting him in the crypt!

Liz Taylor is 77!

Katherine couldn't go into the Mausoleum....dont blame her....hope her health holds up........and that her children help her out!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 2:32 pm ET


Was she there didnt notice! Hope they show a list of people who attended!

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:32 pm ET

lora – so the guest didn't see the open casket?

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:34 pm ET

Does anyone remember the name of the other guest that was on LKL with Leonard Rowe last night? Steve something?

Stu   September 4th, 2009 2:35 pm ET

The open cascet is fake i think

Mara   September 4th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

Who Nisha? Mariau said that was her to the left couple rows back from where Janet was sitting. The camera went to her alot last night. One of the ushers/dancers were talking with her for a minute.

Stu   September 4th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

I mean,at the funeral the gests could see Michael,so The Informer is makeing stupid out of us.Its no way,Michael is a life.
But the video on youtube about the autophsy is a fake.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:39 pm ET

Danny gest was there .. i like this man he was rel friend of MJ..

Mara   September 4th, 2009 2:39 pm ET

I never communicated with TI but for a minute there I fell a little into his trap...but not TOO far..

Stu   September 4th, 2009 2:40 pm ET

Ohh,i just read Lora comment,that thay didnt open the cascet?

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:43 pm ET

When you post Miko's blog for tonight please keep all MJ's blogs together so that it is easier for us to manuever around. Thank you.

Judie   September 4th, 2009 2:52 pm ET

Hi everyone just checking in.

Debbie   September 4th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

Dearest Michael,
I will never forget you and I still 2.5 months after your passing am still crying every day.I miss you and don't think I will ever get past this .Maybe now that your body is laid to rest and your soul is in Heaven, the people of the press will leave you alone.You are and always will be remembered , with all my heart , may you finally rest .Love you so much .

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

stu – is that new video or old one death hoax??

Lynn-IL   September 4th, 2009 2:54 pm ET

The burn victim on LKL last night was named dave dave, although I do not remember seeing his name written at the bottom of the screen as the guests usually are. I tried googling his name and the first three sites had a virus and would not open. Thank God for my security settings or my computer would have been infected!

pat davis   September 4th, 2009 2:54 pm ET


mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

hey guys did you read the letter of samantha from south africa about dDiane Dimond?

mariau   September 4th, 2009 2:56 pm ET

pat davis - Michael please come back, please come back

Stu   September 4th, 2009 2:56 pm ET

Mariau,i dont know what are you talking about now.Hoax?
Are you talking about TI and hoax?I dont know...But its bullsheit anyway...

Lynn-IL   September 4th, 2009 2:59 pm ET

@ mara
when you are on the LKL blogs main page scroll down to the bottom and on the right hand side there will be a heading that says top blogs or something to that effect; under it you should see Michael Jackson. If you click on that it will only show you MJ blogs. They are in order with the most recent appearing first. It makes it much easier to navigate around!!

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

stu – the video you said in the autopsy.. where is that video in youtube?

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:03 pm ET


Thank you. yes but once you click into one it will take you to that day and the rest of the blogs that were posted for that day.

It won't kick you back to the MJ blog list. =(

Mila   September 4th, 2009 3:09 pm ET

How are you guys able to think about anything today ?
My heart is so broken today – I've hardly said a word to anyone since last night when they wrote the ceremony was over.
I was waiting till the last moment for him to come out of somewhere ...
How can he be gone ...
Love should have been able to bring people back

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:10 pm ET

Mara – maybe this can help did you the this photo of Larry king
then place your mouse there and right click and open in the new tab or open in the new window..

so when you open this LKL blog did you the comment rightclick then open in new tab or open in new window.. so it;s easy for you.. any time you want to go to other blog it's open already.

Lynn-IL   September 4th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

mara- I'm not sure then. I have been able to click around quite a bit and it always stays in the MJ blog section. I will have to try again to see if it still works. Sorry if I gave you bad info=(

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:16 pm ET


OMG I'm so ashamed! I never thought to do that because of the "leave your comment" section.

Duh! You are a GENIUS! Thanks for taking the time to help me. =)

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:16 pm ET

let's all cry.. for the lost of our Great King of Pop

We love you Michael.. we love you

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:17 pm ET

Lynn IL

No problem, thank you for trying to help me. I appreciate it.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

Mara – it's help???

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

stu – thank for showing that video..

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:21 pm ET


Being on the blog today with you all helps. Last night I was devasted as if it were June 25th all over again I couldn't come here – only went to leave a comment for Miko.

I hope you feel better – take care.

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:25 pm ET


YES it did mariau – thank you!

Stu   September 4th, 2009 3:25 pm ET

David   September 4th, 2009 3:26 pm ET

I can't weght to see the video of the coverage of the burial.

Naza Ragimova   September 4th, 2009 3:28 pm ET

It becomes harder and harder to feel that Michael gone too soon!

Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

Anyone have knowledge of the deal with the release of the Beatles album on 9.09.09? Does that have anything to do with Michael's catalog?

Mila   September 4th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

Thank you Mara

Lori   September 4th, 2009 3:32 pm ET

I wonder how long it will be before the tears stop? I guess we need to concentrate on the next phase – getting


Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 3:40 pm ET


What,s up with that...does Michael make all the profits from the release since he owns the Beatles catalogue?


Did not see casket open last night
All video clips of Michael in open casket are fake they superimposed MJ onto James Brown The King of soul's body

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

Lori – yes i guess you're .. this day is like June 25, 2009 again..
it's really difficult .. now he's gone.. im sure this time they will give justice to MIchael.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:43 pm ET

gus any news about Murray and investigation

Luda   September 4th, 2009 3:46 pm ET

Hi, everyone....

I still can't accept... so confusing... so hard to realize...

But I did notice the man who was at the memorial with the smooth criminal hat he was there yesterday but looked younger...... the family camera showed him very well like if they were trying to say: "see, it's not Michael" they must have heard about the hoax for sure... I felt they showed him on purpose...

don't know about you...

Lori   September 4th, 2009 3:48 pm ET

@MariaU –there probably won't be anything happening until after the end of the long weekend now....


Mara   September 4th, 2009 3:48 pm ET


I don't know but I'd like to. Crooks.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 3:48 pm ET

Please don't post fake pictures of Michael with the open casket...

it's obvious it's a fake... I think we don't need that. today it's already so hard ....

Sorry I don't want to be rude but...

Stu   September 4th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

I was just woch this video,that somebody was put on other blog,and the guy said,there are no evedances.Pffff......

Saturday, July 25, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators have begun an inquiry into whether coroner's employees illegally leaked or sold private information related to the investigation of Michael Jackson's death.
Investigators spoke to the coroner's office Friday and will handle the inquiry with the district attorney's office, according to sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore. The department was asked to conduct the probe by county supervisors, he said.
"It's an inquiry, not an investigation, and it is very preliminary," Whitmore said. "We've just made a couple of calls. We want to find out if we need to proceed, if this requires an investigation."
On Wednesday the coroner's office said Jackson's death certificate was improperly viewed by at least a half-dozen employees who had no role in investigating the cause of his death.
Improper views of the certificate, which is stored in a state-supervised computer system, is a violation of internal rules, not any laws, Harvey said.Harvey has said the employees were warned and that no further investigation was needed.
Within two weeks of the entertainer's June 25 death, the certificate had been viewed more than 300 times, according to Harvey. The electronic death registration system can be accessed by anyone with a state-issued password, including employees at coroner's offices, funeral homes, hospitals and county and state registrar's offices.

Marmoura   September 4th, 2009 3:52 pm ET

I know this may sound strange...but I couldn't help but think as i saw the motorcade preparing to leave at the Encino home that Michael provided all of this – all of it – for his entire family. It is because of him and his God-given talent that they live the way they do. That they can go and celebrate his life. He provided it all for them. It was a moment that I had to put my head down because i just don't understand it. Why take him now?

Stu   September 4th, 2009 3:53 pm ET

Luda,i was just post for Mariau,couse she usked for it,but i finde a one,that shows,its fake.

Lori   September 4th, 2009 3:54 pm ET

@Luda– I know. I saw him too and my heart skipped....and he was in a lot of camera shots! But too continue again down the path of The Informer 🙂 is to invite heartbreak and insanity. We all just need to hold hands, blog and grieve together now. And continue the work of the MJCSI and Gene's Columbo School for Tieing Up Loose Ends...LOL


Lori   September 4th, 2009 3:57 pm ET

@Marmoura - he wasn't "taken" his life was "stolen".


mariau   September 4th, 2009 3:58 pm ET

see maybe one this inquiries was Diane Dimond.. improperly investigated Michael Jackson case.. sounds aweful with this unathourized people who could give unreliable stories..

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:00 pm ET


That's fine... I'm not angry... It is just so hard today...
when I woke up this morning it's like if I had been hit by a truck!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:01 pm ET


Those Chopra's I dont trust....if they were such good friends why were they NOT invited to burial...instead had to be on tv

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   September 4th, 2009 4:02 pm ET

Correction: Chopra says he could have sworn Michael told him that.

Stu   September 4th, 2009 4:02 pm ET

I know,same here.My son came home from scoul,and told me,he olmost cryd at scoul,and it was so dificolt for hem.

Marmoura   September 4th, 2009 4:02 pm ET

@Lori – well said.

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   September 4th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

Lora, read the article, Chopra gives an explanation. Very cynical though.

I am tucking in, good night!

Lori   September 4th, 2009 4:04 pm ET

@Luda - I feel like Gene had run over me in his power chair!


mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

Lora – i saw that man last night interviewed with anderson cooper take not he was wearing red shirt..

sarah   September 4th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

hi everyone .......

Yesterday was a sad day, its soo heart breaking, finally Michael is buried and will Rest in peace forever ****** we miss u Michael so much, can't believe you are gone ........ 🙁


Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:05 pm ET


Especially when he uses that word about Michael's soul that irritates me.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

Lori, I know, I don't want to go back on the path of the Informer... but it really looked like they did it on purpose...

By the way, did you watch it on CNN, because when the family camera turned off...the image became black and suddenly I saw the name of Michael and something else was written... but the image moved so fast I didn't had the time to read....

Did someone noticed it???

Stu   September 4th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

Mariau,did you see Jacquelyn webpage?There is a good blog,we can post there links and videos.Not the one on yahoo,the other one.Very nice.

Stu   September 4th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

I have a thoughd,who is the Informer.

Zee   September 4th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

This brings tear to my eyes....May he Rest in Peace!

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:09 pm ET

stu – which one tell me the link i dont know

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:11 pm ET


Lori   September 4th, 2009 4:11 pm ET

@ Stu and Luda - the poem I wrote is on Jacquelyn's webpage. It was so nice of her to include it there with all the amazing content she has on her site.

Stu – who do you think is The Informer? B)


Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:14 pm ET


Did you listen to Chopra when Larry asked him where he thinks MJ' soul is.....he answered doesn't know bcse in his religion they are cremated after 2 days and since MJ has been lying for 2 weeks in limbo therefore his consciousness is altered.....

Poor Michaeal surrounded himself with what he thought was a legitimate holy man?

And Dr. Etok....didn't see her there either.....supposed to be such a great and close friend! OMG!

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 4:14 pm ET

Your poem is wonderful, congatulations!!
Do you have any new about TI?

sherry   September 4th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

How's everyone holding up?

Stu   September 4th, 2009 4:19 pm ET

Yes Lory,it was very nice.
I dont whant to say here,but on Jacquelin page i all ready said it.I will wrighd there.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:19 pm ET

Lori, I just saw the poem, It's beautiful!

I'm sure MJ would have been touched...

Lori   September 4th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

@Tatiana – thank you.
I wish I knew something about The Informer. I would like to have a few words with him/her. But it was my own fault for being taken advantage of. I really wanted to believe that the impossible was possible.


angelwings   September 4th, 2009 4:23 pm ET

LUDA TI had me fooled too sp bad I did look so hard just to see Micheal.......TI had every one fooled yes they did say things that were so true but I saw the guy with thwe hat on hoping it was Micheal but it was not last night I finally let my heart grow heavy and tears flow like a river and I said good bye to him I truley beleive MICHEAL THE ANGEL IS GONE

Lori   September 4th, 2009 4:24 pm ET

@Luda–thanks. I just hope he wouldn't be offended by the language in the 5th stanza. LOL. Anyway, I was just trying to get some sense of prespective for the last few weeks. Not that it is really possible. I so totally Want Him Back.


Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:25 pm ET


Tortured Soul that's it – that's what he repeated over and over – he is a straight idiot. And yes I heard some of his interview on LKL but I had to mute the button because he gets on my last nerve – his son also.

sarah   September 4th, 2009 4:28 pm ET

i think when the Jackson family footage ended it was written like END video, i also mention it yesterday when guest were arriving there was the same man sitting who TI said was MJ at the memorial, TI was way OFF on that, the camera focus on him and the other guest it clearly show no way it was MJ in disguise .......... TI shouldn't have said all those things i know whatever TI was saying wasn't true but for a mint. i believed WHAT IF but now the reality is Michael left us forever 🙁 TI should come & explain, i am soo heart broken , Michael rest in peace .... we miss u sooo much !!!! :*(


tatiana   September 4th, 2009 4:29 pm ET

Lori, me too. But it was the end, sorry so much, my hopes were until the very last moment, when the family was still inside of the house last night

sherry   September 4th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Anne@ read the article,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I cant imagine the pressure that was on Michael after reading this

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:35 pm ET


I broke down and am watching your videos.....breaking my heart!

Cant imagine what his mother and children are going through if it affects us, the fans, like this! We only knew the entertainer not the real MAN that he was!

est videos about MJ I've seen so far!

Lori   September 4th, 2009 4:36 pm ET

@tatiana - yes. mine too. My mind was creating all sorts of possible scenarios. Yes it was. I love "what ifs" and magic and illusion...but I think it is time to face facts now. Maybe if we had some it would be easier. LOL. Last night was about saying goodbye. And today is about celebrating his life–well it will be once I stop thinking about the funeral.


mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:37 pm ET

Lora – the Chopra's was out of Michael's life 7 years ago.. and they were just one of MJ's "so called friends".
chopras wrote his book long time ago and revised it again and again until he finished his book and published it after MJ's death..
how horrible this person.

Michael was really surrounded by "so called friends"
Chopra couldn't show some new photos with Michael because there's nothing to show.. He used this one old photo with Michael over and over again i think that photo was taken 1998.

ii've heard that tortured life again and again with Larry.. i'm not on denial that Mj wasn't used drugs.. Yes Mj used drugs for pain and ailments. not other kind of drugs..

Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:40 pm ET


Of all the sh*t he went thru he still always carried himself with such grace and dignity. That's what I loved the most about him. On stage he was fierce off stage such a gentleman. Class act.

dani   September 4th, 2009 4:41 pm ET

"I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart."

Now you R.I.P Michael, but you're still gone too soon 🙁

I love you.

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:42 pm ET


Larry must have been desperate to have guests on his far as I am concerned he could have just shown the people arriving and forget the "so called" friends!

and tonight what does he have the Manson family what the H*** is that?

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:44 pm ET

Lora – Michael was just a human being sometimes he made mistakes in his life.. like us.. like anybody in this world.. Michael wasn't perfect but he tried to fight and be strong. he strugled lots of pain from Media and critics. but still he go on.. He just beleived in one that the world could be a better place.. but it doesn't mean that in one mistake Mj's made.. we should forget him.. of course not..
Michael was a wonderful human being and sometimes fell down on the ground and stood up again and again.. He should be remembered in his great works not his mistakes..

sarah   September 4th, 2009 4:45 pm ET

i agree LORA , and are they going to arrest that Dr. pretty soon ?????


Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:45 pm ET


You got that right. He should have put some of MJ's fans on his show last night.

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:46 pm ET


I did not mean anything negative about not knowing the man that he was....I means just like you....just didnt express myself correctly!

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:48 pm ET

mara – yes because as i believe Michael was truly a genius, fighter and most eloquent man and mannered.

lora – sometimes i dont understand Larry, why he is guesting this man.

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:49 pm ET

lora – i know i understand.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:49 pm ET

I found the family looked better the me... 🙁
I wonder how they do....

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:51 pm ET


In one picture of Katherine he expression looks very deeply in mourning!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:52 pm ET

LOL I cant seem to right correctly today... a lot of errors

mariau   September 4th, 2009 4:52 pm ET

girls – i need to say goodnight and see you tomorrow..
i hope theres some progress about MJ's death investigation.

Michael we love you so much..

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:53 pm ET

I believe TI should have come to explain himself ...
I think he OWE us an explanation.

Why did he do that.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:55 pm ET

Goodnight Mariau

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:55 pm ET

Goodnight Mariau

I am off soon as well stayed up late last night and up very early this morning

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:55 pm ET


I think I just can't let him go.... snif....

Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:56 pm ET

TMZ is reporting that some of the footage from the Funeral as well as the dinner at the Italian restaurant will be part of this A&E special. Not to include the Parents or children or Liz T because they didn't attend.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:57 pm ET

I'll comback later, after watching Miko's report tonight on LKL...

see you later all!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 4:57 pm ET


I's as if I am obsessed with him.....feel sad....think of him....listen to his music all the one since John Lennon as a person affected me so much! Time will heal!

Mimi   September 4th, 2009 4:58 pm ET


Mara   September 4th, 2009 4:58 pm ET

Luda   September 4th, 2009 4:58 pm ET

They didn't go to the diner???

Luda   September 4th, 2009 5:00 pm ET


Yes, time is a great healer!

Now we must concentrate on the investigation! 🙂

Lori   September 4th, 2009 5:03 pm ET

Night all - see you later. 🙂

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 5:04 pm ET

the childeren didnt go ?? or his mother?? poor kids must realy be hard.......may be the casket was open its so hard on all of them

Helen Sanders   September 4th, 2009 5:05 pm ET

Michael is still on the mountain top.Mrs.Katherine can go in spend time with her son privately. Michael deserve the best because he gave his best.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 5:07 pm ET

Tmz report:
Sources tell TMZ footage from inside the party - as well as the funeral itself - will be used for an A&E special, plus a DVD at a later date.

Don't expect to see Joe or Katherine Jackson, Michael's three children or Elizabeth Taylor in the footage though - we're told none of them went to the restaurant after the burial.

A few other random tidbits about the affair: Rat Pack music played all night, "Casablanca" was projected onto the walls, the brothers talked about a reunion tour - and Janet seemed the most grief stricken of the group.

sherry   September 4th, 2009 5:09 pm ET

someone blogged they didnt gotodinner after??? is that true?

Luda   September 4th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

There was an MJ inpersonator at the party... I can see the rumour coming again....OG!

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

I will be back in a couple of hours or so I really need a nap didnt sleep at all last night

Luda   September 4th, 2009 5:13 pm ET

night Lori!

Lori   September 4th, 2009 5:13 pm ET

Maybe it was just too late for them to go to the diner, Michael's parents are both nearly 80 after all, and his children are still young. It has been a devasting 70 days for them. They must be reaching the end of their strength and endurance. They need some peace to recover. The Jackson's have lost their brightest star. My heart just keeps breaking for them during this tragedy. I will continue to remember them all in my prayers.


Mara   September 4th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

It was probably way past the children's bedtime since they had a late start and school in the morning so maybe that was the reason why.

Yeah I saw that about the "impersonator" – wonder who it was.

sherry   September 4th, 2009 5:17 pm ET

im glad actually glad his parents and the children didnt go to "the dinner"afterwards,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,peace thats whatthey needed,,,,,,,,,not a bunch of upheavel. The children and parents need time to recover

Lori   September 4th, 2009 5:17 pm ET

@Mara...well you know what The Informer will say...

sherry   September 4th, 2009 5:18 pm ET

@ Mara
what inpersonator?????

marisa   September 4th, 2009 5:21 pm ET


Mara   September 4th, 2009 5:23 pm ET


Yeah I know LOL and then keep ears and eyes open or something like that.


Read Luda's post above or go to tmz website

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 4th, 2009 5:24 pm ET

Corey Feldman was impersonator for 5 seconds before he got in his car to go home

sarah   September 4th, 2009 5:24 pm ET

sorry i missed something about the impersonator ???? whats the story on that ?????


Judie   September 4th, 2009 5:26 pm ET

Hi everyone............ a funeral fit for a king

sherry   September 4th, 2009 5:26 pm ET

k, i will checkout tmz ty

Mara   September 4th, 2009 5:27 pm ET


Yeah I saw that – it was cute. He had the pony tail going.

Niura Schwartz   September 4th, 2009 5:28 pm ET

Hello , every body: I drove 3 days to be here in LA. I went to the Glendale cemetery at 9 am , trying to get as close as possible , but the police was very bad! You cound't see many fans and the international media was asking "Where are the fans?" It was very hot. Around 8:00 Pm the family came and someone told me that Michael arrived at 4:00 pm from the other entrance. It was vey sad to see just a few fans there. I am sure Michael would love to know that the fans were there. When we saw the Rolls Royces coming everybody started to scream 'Michael we love you" and at that moment I cryed at the same time the full red moon was up and the heat was intense around a 100 degrees and now I know that even the guests had to go to the same waiting that I had for Michael.I also think that in death Michael belongs to the family is interesting . I will go back to the cemetery tomorrow and at least be close to The Grand Mausoleum and be able to pray a little bit. But I am glad I was there. This morning I drove to Encino to Havenhurst I am staying very close and I play the dancing songs I don't know why but is like I feel Michael young again. Well my friends that is all from LA.

Sarah, he was at the diner!

Mila   September 4th, 2009 5:32 pm ET

I think Corey Feldman's stunt posing as MJ in front of a crowd of hopeful fans was kind of distasteful

Mila   September 4th, 2009 5:39 pm ET

Did you notice how beautiful was the full moon last night ?
Michael loved the moon – it was magical to him. I think his Mom might have decided to have the funeral on that day and in the night specifically so he could have that moon too.

Judie   September 4th, 2009 5:41 pm ET

anyone hear anything on Omer? did they get any pic of Lisa Marie ?

Mara   September 4th, 2009 5:44 pm ET

Gotta bounce – be back later...

Luda   September 4th, 2009 5:44 pm ET

They said a cinema camera was there and some scenes would probably been shown in the "This is it" movie....

Stu   September 4th, 2009 5:48 pm ET

Luda,are you serious?Do you think,a guy,who make stupid out of many peaples gonna come,and say,yes i was make idiot out of all of you?

Lori   September 4th, 2009 6:53 pm ET

We all choose to get caught up in The Informer thing by our ownselves. I don't know if we can say The Informer was "the fool" because we were the fools. We all should have known that there was no way anything the Informer said could have been true. But who knows, maybe he/she will come back and talks to us. 🙂

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 6:55 pm ET

Hi Lori:
I read this and I think that is what happen

Grief expert David Kessler talks to ET about Michael Jackson's private interment and how he perceives the King of Pop's three children are handling the loss of their father.

"Interestingly enough, I think as long as his body was still in movement between the tests, the autopsy and where he was going to be buried, you almost have a sense that he is still with us," Kessler says. "When someone is finally laid to rest, you do have a sense of completion, a closure to that chapter of his life."

Lori   September 4th, 2009 7:00 pm ET

@Tatiana that is in a sense true. But we didn't see the actual interment-so it still feels a little incomplete. I am hoping with time it will be easier.

“Interestingly enough, I think as long as his body was still in movement between the tests, the autopsy and where he was going to be buried, you almost have a sense that he is still with us,” Kessler says. “When someone is finally laid to rest, you do have a sense of completion, a closure to that chapter of his life.”

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 7:08 pm ET

ty tatiana I will download it
Lori so true..yes in time we shall feel abit better I do feel like an ass lol I was hoping and wishing till the end he was still here

sherry   September 4th, 2009 7:23 pm ET

Niura Schwartz thanks so much for your update

Janice   September 4th, 2009 7:25 pm ET

I'm so glad that the world got to see Michael's beautiful resting place...the Great Mausoleum! It is unbelievable the kind of place Diane Dimond tried to make it out to be...she is so brazen, irresponsible and an outright liar! So glad the cameras were there to shed a little light on her unethical twisted reporting, not only about his resting place but everything she has said about him for the last 18 years! Mr. Jackson is in a beautiful splendid place but Ms. Dimond will not be with the likes of him.

Ms. Dimond will be six feet under and thank God for we can all go piss on her grave!

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 7:28 pm ET

Titania oh my god ty for the link Iam going to print it...its so I dont have the words to say.I cant type to see.he is really gone........its so beutful writtin ..........i cant stop the tears.gee I cant spell lol ty




tatiana   September 4th, 2009 7:31 pm ET

Yes angelwings, I think we can print and keep, I understand you, I feel so bad, i can`t stop to think why he?

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 7:32 pm ET

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 7:43 pm ET

titiana I did print it off........god he is so loved by his family reading it it just kills me now I can add this to everything eles I have of him thank you again


sherry   September 4th, 2009 7:48 pm ET

hello? is anyone on?

Lori   September 4th, 2009 8:10 pm ET

It has been so surreal. Even with all the media coverage, I didn't want to believe that you were really gone. Now after your funeral, I suppose it is true, that you have left this world. Though you are no longer with us in the flesh, you will live in our hearts forever. I never can say goodbye...only, until the day we meet face to face in the presence of our Lord. Love you most, Michael...God Bless.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 8:15 pm ET

did everyone leave you sherry

Lori   September 4th, 2009 8:19 pm ET

I am here – sort between doing the laundy...but I will be ready for a blog fest tonight...happy thoughts would be good

chris   September 4th, 2009 8:21 pm ET

sherry   September 4th, 2009 8:24 pm ET

I think so angelwings

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 8:24 pm ET

Lori god I hope so

Mila   September 4th, 2009 8:34 pm ET

Girls, did you see Gerald's posts on the blog about Miko ? You just have to read that.
OMG, I can't believe it – he actually cares about MJ and he even apologized about the things he said earlier.

sherry   September 4th, 2009 8:34 pm ET

This might be a little silly ,but my husbans and I were talking today about where Michael is buried.They said Sammy Davis Jr. is there too,,,,,,,,,,,,,My husband says wow, When GOd has the raputure and Michael andSammy wake up andsee each other there gonna totallybe like Hey boy let me show you how its done, tap tap tap,and Michael says hey I can top that,,, spin moonwalk. weeehoo!~ After that I smiled for the 1st time in days

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

we can talk about the golden pants again, maybe

sherry   September 4th, 2009 8:36 pm ET

sorry my space bar is sticking,,,,and typo,,,opps

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 8:38 pm ET

Yes Mila, I read, and I always thought that he loves Michael, even I was angry sometimes with his comments

Lori   September 4th, 2009 8:40 pm ET

@Mila – I am not sure if I do believe GJ transformation. I am usually very skeptical. Well except for The Informer. TIme will tell, I guess.


angelwings   September 4th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

Sherry thats so kool I can realy see that and james brown Micheal loved him

ok this may sound so weird ok here I go The Informer didnt realy lied he did say Micheal will not be buried and you guessed he was not so hmmmmmmmmm

sherry   September 4th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

angelwings,mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yeah,,,kinda true
I eould like tosee TI come back to see what he can do to explain himself

JEAN   September 4th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

Thank you CNN, and special thanks to Larry King and Randi Cane for the care and dignity compassion they showed when reporting on Mr. M. Jackson sudden death. The majority of the world felt shock and a great sadness, but nothing compared to what his mother Mrs. Jackson must be expericing. As a mother myself I can't even imagine loosing a child that I gave birth to and nurtured throughout his life. God bless Mrs Jackson and Family.
Keep up the excellent reporting CNN Staff.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

yes sherry that would be nice but Iam not counting on it

sherry   September 4th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Me either,,,,,,,,darn space bar!~

Where is everyone? I hope they dont stop bloggin,,,,,,,,,,

gab   September 4th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

We still feel the pain. But life goes on. We smile even though our hearts are aching. Rest in peace Mike. God bless to your family.

Alicia from Hawaii   September 4th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

I feel so lost. Thank you all for making me feel somewhat "normal" in my grieving for Michael. It is so hard, and no one in my life understands. I cry a lot.

Does anyone remember TI saying something about December? Something will happen in December? I know it's bad, but I almost feel like I need TI to come and tell us he/she didn't mean any of that stuff, in order to fully get closure. I know the family couldn't fake grief like that (or could they?) but I can't let it go yet. HELP!!

sherry   September 4th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

well,,,,,,,,,,,,plz you all,,,,,,,,,,,,,,dont give up bloggin. I feel if we as fans are steadfast,and keep applying pressure on the media. maybe justice will be served. Im going to bed, its eerie quiet tonight.
hugs to all

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

iam still here and on youtube

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:24 pm ET


Debbie was not invited...
Here :

Contrary to the reports, sources confirm to ET that Rowe was not invited to Thursday night's service at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.

Rowe, who has been grieving privately, had requested the opportunity to say goodbye to Michael in private on Wednesday night. However, she was denied that opportunity and is heartbroken over it.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

youtube Micheal new song just came out its called bad girl

Alicia from Hawaii   September 4th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Sherry, what article did you mention to Anne? I'd like to read it, too.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

If the Jackson family wanted MJ's funeral to be private from the fans and media last night, why will it be part of the reality show A&E is putting on and why a DVD? I don't get it????

Do you think TMZ meant the part of the funeral that was blacked out or do they mean the footage that we already saw of everyone's arrival?

Lucero (Mexico)   September 4th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Finally, Rest in peace sweet angel. 🙂
May your legacy live forever Michael. I hope the best for your kids.
God bless you and your kids always and forever.
You’ll be forever in my heart.

You’ll be forever in my heart.

Leave him and his kids alone.



tatiana   September 4th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Some people in youtube says is not Michael, is Massari, I heard it and it doesn`t sound like Michael

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

luda really wow

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

oooo ok ty tiiana

Laura   September 4th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

angelwings...that's not Michael, it's Massari.

Bella   September 4th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I am so lost. I am still searching for him, I look up in the sky every night and talk to him, only if I could see him in a good place then my mind can be at rest.

I can't stop crying.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:42 pm ET


why a DVD of the funeral....
doesn't it sound strange... kind of out of place???
I continue to think something strange about that passing....

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

ok Iam old lol who the hell is massari??

marianne   September 4th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

i will never stop adoring, praising and loving you was so painful to see you "buried"..can never take that...but you have to was time....and im going to miss you terribly....i love you very much..
May God meet you with his angels and bring you to paradise.....where you will find eternal rest and peace.....i love you...

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

don't worry! I don't know either who is Massari! LOL
Too old!

Judith   September 4th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Our hearts go out to Michael's three children.So young to lose a parent.

Terri   September 4th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Good Evening everyone

Lynette   September 4th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

I wrote a poem in remembrence of Micheal Jakcson:

My heart breaks with the thought that you are no longer with us
As we listen to your songs today
The memories we had of you keep flooding back
The feeling of loss is overwhelming
And ever consuming

You did what no one else could do
You inspired a world of fans who loved you until the end
Michael, may you finally find the peace
You spent your lifetime searching for

The heart breaking reality of life without you
Is sometimes too hard to bear
And I find myself drowned with sorrow
As I think of your unfortunate demise

You were a performer of unprecendented intelligence
And the memory of you will live on in our hearts
For generations beyond our time
You will live on for infinity

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Alicia asked something TI said about December, do you know about it?

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:47 pm ET


TMZ say it's also the party!
here :

Sources tell TMZ footage from inside the party - as well as the funeral itself - will be used for an A&E special, plus a DVD at a later date.

Terri   September 4th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Hi angel.Lori, Mara I hope your feeling a tiny bit better today?

Maria   September 4th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Alicia from Hawaii – September 4th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

I know it’s bad, but I almost feel like I need TI to come and tell us he/she didn’t mean any of that stuff, in order to fully get closure.
If you allow yourself to depend on a deluded troll to fully get closure, then you won't fully get closure at all. Because these characters won't stop! They will pretend that there was no interment, only because WE weren't allowed to see the body. And if the family had shown us the body (which would have been wrong and ghoulish anyway, as Katherine Jackson realized very well before the Staples Center memorial), then the hoax theorists would have pretended that in fact we saw only a wax puppet with make-up or something like that. And so on.
So if you are tempted to rely on the words of a troll, BEAT IT!

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

what do you mean Luda??

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:54 pm ET


About December, TI said the big surprise of Michael's come back would be revealed in december... he said: until then don't believe any claim of burial...

he said: "I understand it's a long time to wait but..."

He didn't said what would happen in december exactly but the waiting would end there... he said plenty of things would happen during fall, stay ears and eyes open...

That's about it

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Tom Massari was the attorney that represented MJ during the last child molestation case. Massari is one of the top attorneys in the U.S.

TI mentioned December....leading us to believe that is when MJ might reveal himself (if he was alive). That is how I interpreted the December statement by TI.

Luda: Do you think TMZ means we will see the actual funeral of the people speaking at the funeral.....the part that was blacked out to the media last night? TMZ made such a generalized statement so I can't figure out what part of the funeral will be on A&E.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

angelswings: about what??

which of my comment do you talk about?

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Hi everyone!


You have your opinion, I really wouldn't be calling the Informer a troll!


The Informer said that would be the time Michael returned.

Maria   September 4th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Susan62509: Could be only speculation. I don't think that the family or any company would agree to make a DVD with footage of the funeral. I think they either want to include a little footage on the "This Is It" documentary, or to use some sequences on their reality show. But I don't think anyone will dare to sell the "hidden" part of the funeral.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Thanks Luda

Luda   September 4th, 2009 9:57 pm ET


Massari I think is a singer....

The attorney is Tom Mesereau!

Linda Joyce   September 4th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

I still think it's a mistake to bury him away from his fans. He won't generate any money for his estate at Forest Lawn and I believe he would have wanted to generate money for his kids.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 9:59 pm ET


I would also like to add to your comment. TI said in the very beginning about illusion and magic. Now that I look back, TI was telling us from the start that you see and believe only what you want to see and believe. Some fell for TI, others didn't. I was one who did for a long time. I don't feel like a fool though. TI warned us since the beginning.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Thanks Heidi, and I don`t care what people think, I `ll wait and see what could happen in december

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:02 pm ET


Why were the dancer dressed like cadets?

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:03 pm ET


I don't know exactly what part of the funeral they mean would be used...
But is TMZ, reliable??

I find that strange... the way it happen.... don't you think there is a kind of lack of respect for who MJ was...
A DVD of the funeral????
Nobody does that!

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Hi Heidi – Terri – Susan62509 – everybody

angelwings – I didn't know who Massari was either but I googled him and he is worth googling let me tell you..(wink)

I think they will use respectful funeral footage in the reality show or so I hope. I think TMZ also said that they will be using footage from the dinner afterwards.

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Michael liked the military style clothing

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:05 pm ET


You are correct about Mesereau. Sorry. When you spelled out Tom's name is when I realized I was wrong. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Hi Rhonda!

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:06 pm ET


If I remember well it was the costumes of the show...not sure... but the military style it's Michael's style.. maybe it was just to make a wink!

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Hi Heidi

Katie   September 4th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

He did so much for us. His work is done. It’s time for us to do the work now: clear his name and protect his legacy.
Cnn (Larry King) and the Media please do a show on Michael Jackson for all the good things he has done for people in the World, such as the burnt boy Dave Dave, and the lung transplant he paid for – for a sick kid, instead of the negative things about him.
Please clear his name and protect his legacy, the Media owe this to Michael.
Rest in peace MJ, we love you!!

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Luda I saw what you ment about TI

Susan I fell hook line and sinker with TI

and TI said Micheal will not be bureid I know sounds reall crazy even to me But Micheal was not buried hmmmmm.....I know Iam just wishing and hoping but last night when I saw the news amd Micheals family and childeren I knew then it was so true he really is gone

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Hi Lucero

How are you today? September 12th – Luis Miguel will be here and September 15th Alejandro Fernandez...I'm not spanish but I love their music!!!

Maria   September 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Susan: Yes, he was always coherent, I can't deny that 🙂
Unfortunately, when someone dies, it's not a matter of wish and opinion... it's not like we say "beauty/ugliness is in the eye of the believer"....

ps: I left you a response on the "Jackson’s Final Resting Place ‘Stranger Than Thriller Video’" (you know, Taj...)

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Where is everyone tonight?

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Hi Rhonda

You okay?

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET


well in december there will be the Michael's OPUS (the book)

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

Thank you all that helped me figure out what TMZ meant. I flipped when I first read the article. I've never heard of someone making a DVD of a person's funeral to sell to the public. Strange!!!!

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:13 pm ET


I don't to make it worst but, tonight, I was watching the reports about the burial and they showed the programme and the picture of Michael on it was the one of the Liberian Girl video,,, the one TI was saying was sign at the end of the memorial.... you know the one where he is behind the camera.....

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:13 pm ET


I read your Taj response right now. BRB.

angelwings   September 4th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

well ladies I will be back in a half hour going to get a coffee for the long night of blogging hhahahaha

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

Linda Joyce

Where else would they bury him to keep him safe?

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:16 pm ET


Another clue! Wait till we see the whole thing.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

yes I know Luda, but anyway december is no so far, I can wait for the book or whatever, just 3 months

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:19 pm ET


well at the end of september there will be the tribute show and end of october the Movie.... should help to wait! LOL

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:19 pm ET


Elvis is buried at his home I’ve been there people are very respectful. I don’t understand why he is locked away from his fans. Only family & friends we will visit him.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:21 pm ET


Bring me one!! LOL

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

yes, I think that will help, in my life I had had to wait for other things, and at the end I felt happy, so now I can wait (sorry my english is not so good)

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I truly wish the Informer would come back, I know he/she was there last night.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I just read Christian Audigier bought Neverland.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:26 pm ET


TI was there last night ????

Are you sure it was him???
or an impostor...

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

I think he bought the house where Michael was living untill June, some media are a litle confused,

Lori Quebec Canada   September 4th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

seeing Michael's casket again lastnight and knowing he was inside of it wasn't any easier then it was the first time I saw it for the memorial..... it just broke my heart to see his kids lastnight and knowing the pain they are going is just so hard to believe that he is gone I watch his videos and I still cry .........a beautiful person is gone from this earth all for the sake of money........

Lucero (Mexico)   September 4th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Hi Mara 🙂
Already I said this: You are A nice person!!
I' m fine. I hope that you are fine too. Do you live in Las Vegas?

Hola Tatiana,
Como estas?



Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

No, not doing so good

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:30 pm ET


I meant to say – He probably was there last night ...sorry!

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

I don`t know what happen, I am trying to say hello to Lucero but my comments disapperared

Patty Anderson   September 4th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:37 pm ET


I don't know I think Tennessee is alot different from CALI. I do wish that he were somewhere that we could go and visit him though, that would be nice.

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Hi Patty!! How are you tonight....

Hi Patty, Rhonda!

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:40 pm ET


Yes I'm in Vegas aka Sin City! Luis and Alejandro come out here at least once or twice a year! Great show and beautiful voices! I've also seen Mana before!

Did you get a chance to see the funeral last night?

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Who is Christian Audigier?

Lori   September 4th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Hello everyone

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Jackson just released a scathing statement condemning those who violated the no-fly zone over Forest Lawn last night - asking all media organizations to refrain from airing any more footage of the event.

Here's Randy's full statement:

"As a family, we are all aware of how Michael's life, and his death, touched so many around the world. It is why we held a public memorial in my brother's honor.

And it is the reason we chose to release a small amount of footage leading up to yesterday's ceremony at Forest Lawn.

I was dismayed last night and again today at the coverage I saw on television of our ceremony for Michael. We had asked the media to respect the privacy and the sanctity of this event; to give us one moment of privacy to mourn as a family out of the public spotlight.

Unfortunately, despite a no-fly zone around Forest Lawn, many media organizations decided to ignore our wishes. They employed helicopters that not only surreptitiously recorded our private family ceremony, but also severely disrupted it.

Sorry Randy.....the helicopter was a police helicopter brought in by the city of Glendale. It was to protect the air space. Susan62509

Lori   September 4th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

@Heidi - he is the Ed Hardy designer

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:44 pm ET


How do you know it was a police helicopter?

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

He bought Michael's home in Holmby Hills .

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 10:46 pm ET


What !!!!!!!!!!
They had camera's there until they cut the feed. They just want to be able to either sell it or whatever.

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Right now the home is still owned by Hardy, but Christian is suppose to get the keys to it when Michael's lease is up in December

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

What I read about Audigier is that he bought Neverland and will open it each June 25 in souvenir of Michael for the fans....

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Luda September 4th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I just read Christian Audigier bought Neverland

Hi Luda: I read an article today that Christian Audigier moved into the Holmby Hills house that MJ passed away in.

No court papers have been filed to purchase Neverland. I think the executors would not sell Neverland as it is worth a lot of money as the years go on. MJ still owns a small portion, just like the music catalogs, which are huge future assets for MJ's children.

Christian Audigier will not transform Michael Jackson's former home into a public space.

Michele Elyzabeth, a spokeswoman for the Ed Hardy clothing founder, said Audigier would move into the sprawling Holmby Hills mansion at the end of Jackson's lease on Dec. 15.

He also said that Audigier had no plans to turn the rental property where the King of Pop collapsed and later died into a public space.

The estate is owned by Ed Hardy CEO Hubert Guez.

Jackson was entombed Thursday night at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.

Good evening everyone

Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:52 pm ET


What about the Beatles album coming out on 9.9.09 do you know if the proceeds will go to Michael's catalog if he is the owner? Generate more funds for the children?

Lucero (Mexico)   September 4th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Mara :-),
Las Vegas is a great city. The nightlife is exciting!!
And last night I saw the funeral by CNN.

Tatiana :-),
Big trouble, you know (no escribo bien en ingles, solo leo).



Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

I am guessing part of the monies will go to the estate

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

also i like on the Michael’s Private Home Movie.. when His Cousins are pushing him towards the pool… Michael’s saids” I’m a nice Person…I just took a Shower.and wash my hair…. and they still push him in… he screams….Like that was going to stop them..not…. I love it…
Michael jumps on the Trampoline jumping he starts to jump to high and he screams… He’s so funny…

Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

The Beatles catalogue belongs to Michael. He owns the copyrights.

Patty Anderson   September 4th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

Ok ladies you are not letting me catch up here I keep trying to rread and you keep right on typing. heee....heee... LOL

sarah   September 4th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

HI every1

No TI tonite, it figures....... MJ is really gone 🙁 miss him sooooooo much, yesterday burial for definitely fit for a king of PoP


Luda   September 4th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

Mary U,

Yes, I saw it, when he says I' m a nice person... putting a little bit of resistance to make it fun for the kids...


Mara   September 4th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Hi jaqueline


Very sad night last night for all of us – today is a little better. Anymore celebrations in Mexico for Michael Jackson?

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

I watched the funeral last night on CNN. There were a couple of overhead shots, but those were from the media cranes. I've been reading all week and in the L.A. Times newspaper, the city official in charge of of the street traffic, etc. said the funeral was a no-fly zone and the police would be protecting the no-fly zone in a helicopter. If footage from the funeral was filmed from a helicopter, wouldn't the film be shakey from vibration?

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

Quiet on the blogs, yes/ Probably everyone is off enjoying the beginning of the long weekend.


Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

Good Evening all 😉

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:03 pm ET

What a very sad event last night...I could not stay up with you guys to type, it was just too much emotion. I quietly listened to his music and watched the burial service that was shown. The angels are now singing with MJ in the lead 😉

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Hi Lori, jacqueline & Lois!!!

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

I live in Mexico too

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

This is not an album, it is for the x-box 360 and PS3 gaming systems.
But since Michael has controlling interest in Sony, he will get most of the profit from it

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Hi Lois! 🙂

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

Hi Jacqueline!

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:08 pm ET


I understand, I left the blog too because it was too painfull...

jacqueline   September 4th, 2009 11:08 pm ET

Hi Lois..Mara..Heidi

jacqueline   September 4th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

good evening Luda

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

Hey , Dileo or Tohme were not there last night??

They both claim they are his manager...

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

Let us all hope that the rest of the things that come to us will be better. Maybe there will be some charges filed? I do not think I will have complete closure until we hear something more official regarding the investigation and hopefully some arrests or something.


Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

@Luda and supposedly DiLeo had been one of Michael's friends for a long time....

Patty Anderson   September 4th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

You said it all Lois. He is now dancing , singing and smiling. He's been relieved of all his pain and sadness. Nothing but joy, peace and happiness for our Michael now.

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

Me too Lori – but I found it very strange that they were going to do a private burial, no media and suddenly next thing you know, there is a stream in from CNN only and the Jackson's stream. You know you talk about 7's....well there were 7 sets of flowers around his casket. They were beautiful flowers and a very beautiful setting.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

They said yesterday LAPD would take care of Murray and the D.A. of the other doctors....

Dianne   September 4th, 2009 11:15 pm ET

I cried so hard and so much I looked like ET.
My husband laughed at me and I cried harder.

I LOVE YOU MJ......MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:15 pm ET

– Michael Jackson signed his will on 7/7/02.
– Michael Jackson's memorial was on 7/7/09 … exactly 7 years after the will was signed.
– Michael Jackson's two biggest hits — “Black & White” and “Billie Jean” — were each #1 for 7

– Michael Jackson's three biggest albums — “Thriller,” “Bad” and “Dangerous” — each produced 7

top 40 hits.
– Michael Jackson was the 7th pregnancy of Katherine.
– Michael Jackson was born in 1958 … 19 + 58 = 77
– Michael Jackson died on the 25th … 2 + 5 = 7
– Michael Jackson has 7 letters in his first and last name.
– his last tour with the Jacksons started on 7/7

Maria   September 4th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

I watched it online on MyfoxLA and they showed indeed some random aerial views, after the hearse was brought in and the main live feed was cut. By then, nobody in the studio was there anymore and it was no sound, it was as if they forgot to switch off the recording. It was so random, that after a while they started all of a sudden to show a police pursuit in LA (aerial view too). I wonder whose helicopter it was.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

I would like to take this time to share my appreciate and gratitude to CNN for blocking John & jdf from entering the Michael Jackson blogs. I've been monitoring the past few days and noticed John has disappeared and jdf from Holland has now entered. The "from Holland" part wasn't reported by error. jdf from holland isn't attacking us any longer with the personal slander and identity theft.

THANK YOU CNN for responding so quickly. You have made our blogging a much nicer place.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

"share my appreciation".

Sorry. Won't I ever learn to proof read first. LOL

Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:17 pm ET


Thanks – I thought I heard them say album but I may have been delirious...if the money is going to MJ then I'll get a couple of those.

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

@Susan - do you think they are really gone? Maybe they are just gone for the weekend?

Lucero (Mexico)   September 4th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

Mara 🙂

Sorry, I can't answer your question (I don't speak english very well)
But, I would like to tell you, that I really enjoyed reading your messages, but I just connect to the blog once in a while. I will continue studying my English lessons. You are a very nice person!!

God bless you!!

Tatiana 🙂
I will continue studying my English lessons.

Judie   September 4th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

Jusr checkin tonight Hi eveyone

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:20 pm ET

Still, there is alot of unanswered questions regarding his death and we should continue to find the answers. I guess the Informer will not be around now...guess he has run out of ideas now that the burial is done.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:21 pm ET


That is unreal regarding the "7's". Wow

Dileo, Tohme.......the funeral was by invitation only. They obviously weren't invited. I didn't hear about Brooke Shields. Maybe she couldn't make it.

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

goodnight lucero

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Well if I am recalling correctly, The Informer showed up the first time about a month after the Staples Center Memorial....


Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Hi Judie – good evening 🙂

jacqueline   September 4th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

Hi Judie

sarah   September 4th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

i agree LOIS, TI said lots of things, for a mint i believed WHAT IF, but reality hit really hard yesterday Michael is really gone and that quack doc. is still not arrested 🙁


Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

Lori, yes, the 7th of august he said...

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

@Luda...another 7. LOL

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

Hi Judie!

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

I have never heard of a burial going that late or even starting that late...usually they are in the afternoon or morning and then the family can gather for the day and support each other.....I have never heard of someone being buried that late at night.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:26 pm ET


exactly! LOL

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

So maybe The Informer may make a visit here on the 7th?


Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:26 pm ET


Well I think we owe you a special "thank you" for contacting CNN and putting in that complaint. You're right it is more enjoyable!

Hi Lois*


Goodnight and sweet dreams! Keep up the good work! I will also study my "spanish" as well. See you on Sabado. =)

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

hmmm another 7, eeekk...weird eh

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

Hi Mara 😉 how are u

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:27 pm ET


me neither Lois, but in that story nothing is normal! LOL

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

I think he will be around.

sarah   September 4th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

didn't they also buried Ted Kennedy at night, maybe coz of the LA heat condition ...


Judie   September 4th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Hi Lois
I see everyone is busy tonight so much to talk about .
I have been gone most of the night .... I thought I saw Rhonda's name

Rhonda if youre there I hope u r doing ok. I didn't see u on last night.

couple of questions did they get any pictures of LM ?

Was Omer there.

And I would love to see some gold pants for Friday girls night out.

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

well that could very well be Lori lol....Monday is a holiday so who knows!

Dianne   September 4th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

A beautiful rose
A cute innocent smile
You danced on your toes
It was your unique style

You were a bright star
with so much to give
But your life was cut short
Now in our hearts you will live

Memories are all that we have
to remember you by
I can't believe your gone and
I constantly cry

Rest in peace sweet angel above
and please know that you will
always be loved.

(please don't anyone laugh at me) thank you.

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

@:Lois–I have heard of twilight burials before - but Michael's was very late... but what I saw of it was beautiful. The purple sky and the red moon. Beautiful, but sad since it was from the smoke from that horrible fire.


Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

Very nice Dianne – so sweet 😉 ty for sharing it with us.

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

Maybe! I hope the Informer comes before that.

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

I hope the Informer comes before that.

Thank you, it's true tho, and I wish I could stop crying.
In time I guess, it just doesn't seem real.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:31 pm ET


the burial was late and they were very late! 1 hour 30....

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

on TMZ Randy is mad that it was air.. what the Helicopter caught... Why was it announced...???... at the end of Larry king someone said that who ever was buried tonight.. was not Michael...if at all their was a body.... Watch showbiz tonight... on right now.. did Michael fake his death.

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

"They haven't bloggd since last Tuesday night". Cnn Comment.....

Where is Gene?

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Hey! The Opus will be release on december 7!
another one....

Barbara   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Not that I want to get into The Informer shenanigans again, but I read that he/she was on again last night. Can someone fill me in on what was written and/or direct me to the blog. Thanks!

Dianne   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Not to barge in anyones conversation but I read that it was so late because Katherine didn't want to go, she was having a very hard time, but they convinced her. I hope nothing happens to her. So sad

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

I think it is wonderful so many of us were inspired to write poetry for Michael. Everyone has done a beautiful job. Maybe we should all get together and compile all of our poems into a book?


Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:33 pm ET


My friend thank you for the update. I hope you can get up close and take pictures even if just from the outside. Drive safe and hello to your son.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:34 pm ET


what are you saying???
who said that?????

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:34 pm ET


Do not thank me, please. I believe Nichole S. was taking some action also.

Farah   September 4th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

Michael u will live on forever. We will never forget you. Rest in eternal peace.

Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:34 pm ET


I'm good TODAY but last night was a different story as with all of us.

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

They said LMP was there, but the cameras did not pan in on her; at least not what I saw. I don't know about Omer...but that man with the fedora was there with a cane, as was a man with the hat at the memorial service; it almost mirrored the memorial service, except they changed the colour of the flowers....what were MJ's favourite colours?? Was it red/gold/black something like that? Diana Ross was a no show I believe, which I find very strange.

jacqueline   September 4th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

Yes... Thank -you Dianne for sharing it was great

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

The Informer wasn't here last night???

Mara   September 4th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

Okay, thank you Nicole S!

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:36 pm ET


No TI was not here... Heidi meant TI must have been at the burial as he seems to know Mike well...

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 11:38 pm ET

I don't think it's on... someone told me it on..

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:39 pm ET

No, there was no appearance by The Informer or any of his/her imitators.

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:39 pm ET

Really Mary – what do they mean, it was not MJ that was buried? Who did they bury then? Or was this all staged for the movie??

Yes, Mara – it was hard on all of us.

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:40 pm ET

Heidi, you told me he came and when I asked what he said you said you were talking about the funerals...
I'm confused...

anyway I looked on the other blogs and didn't see him...

Judie   September 4th, 2009 11:41 pm ET

My heart was just broken last night when the kids put the crown on top of the flowers on the casket..... & Prince & Blanket with black arm bands on like their Daddy.

Lori   September 4th, 2009 11:42 pm ET

It was truly a funeral fit for a King or a head of state. I have never cried so much as I have over the last couple of months.


Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:43 pm ET

Good lord!

As sad I was last night, as confused I'm tonight....

who was buried....what's going on...:,

Lois   September 4th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

Wow – I wonder what other news agencies were around that aired it? I thought CNN was the only one that was able to stream it until the actual starting of the ceremony.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Lucero, mi inglès tampoco es muy bueno ( aver si esto no desaparece) tu tambièn eres muy amable, muchos saludos

Mary U from Ohio   September 4th, 2009 11:46 pm ET was a friend of the family

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

In you tube there is "a movie theory"

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:48 pm ET

The family?
you mean the Jackson family?

is he really a friend...

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:49 pm ET

movie theory????

Rhonda   September 4th, 2009 11:49 pm ET

Michael's favorite colors are: Red, Black, Yellow and Gold

Heidi   September 4th, 2009 11:50 pm ET

September 4th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I truly wish the Informer would come back, I know he/she was there last night.

I felt he was at the funeral. Sorry for the confusion.

Judie   September 4th, 2009 11:50 pm ET

ok 2 more questions that need to be answered......Where are the missing tapes & Why nobody in the family helped him I just don't get it.

Last night one of news guys said they beleive Michael was trying to wean himself off of some of the drugs because he had a hard time at some of the rehersals, so he was tring to get stronger.

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:51 pm ET

Yes Luda, you can serach in you tube and watch, I saw it I think may be twoo weeks ago

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:54 pm ET

Thakns Heidi, I can´t explain it to Luda, I understand very good and read in english, but writting for me is more difficult

sarah   September 4th, 2009 11:54 pm ET

are they really going to discuss on showbiz about that MJ fake his own death ????????????? it can't be .........................


Maria   September 4th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

CNN used the aerial live feed of KABC and KTLA. Bot had cranes, if I'm not wrong, not helicopters. And they stopped shortly after the hearse was brought in.

Judie   September 4th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

are they really going to discuss on showbiz about that MJ fake his own death ????????????? it can’t be …………………….



Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:56 pm ET

Thanks Tatiana!

Luda   September 4th, 2009 11:57 pm ET


Thanks for the link !

tatiana   September 4th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

You are wellcome, Luda, I wish I could write more

Susan62509   September 4th, 2009 11:59 pm ET


Good questions. What I don't understand is the tapes. I've never read anything on any site about security cameras/tapes in the Holmby residence. The only thing I've heard about missing tapes has been from the CNN MJ blogs that we've been on. I must be missing something regarding this item.

Luda   September 5th, 2009 12:00 am ET

When I think I woke up this morning sad... never thought I would end the day so confused....

No one buried.... They always say their source is a friend, no name...

Luda   September 5th, 2009 12:02 am ET


It's ok, don't worry, english is not my mother tongue either!

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:04 am ET

Hey Patty you still on?

Susan62509   September 5th, 2009 12:05 am ET

MJ was buried. I really don't think Katherine would be crying at the funeral over a stranger. She appeared very tired, no make-up on, and sincerely grieving.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:08 am ET

I am not really who all gets on hear... but ... Who knows if they want this out... ..There was a man with a white cream color hat on.... That same man was at the Memorial service... right behind the Jacksons... with a black glove on..... the man had dark sunglasses on.... remember when Michael did Ghost and dressed as the old man well the man at the Memorial looked like that old man...closely to it... Last night at the Funeral that same man was there.. on the left side when the kids sat down right before all cameras went off... that man was sitting right behind the kids....... Now this is might be the reason Randy is upset and wants it to be kept off the air so no one will figure it out...

Susan62509   September 5th, 2009 12:13 am ET

Mary U:

I saw the hat man also. In the beginning of the funeral he was approached by a woman and they hugged. It was a good enough shot from the camera so I watched his face very closely. The skin on his face wrinkled just like a normal persons would when smiling. To me, his skin looked like a typical old man. He was mingling in the crowd early on also. I don't feel he was an imposter.

sarah   September 5th, 2009 12:14 am ET

i saw that Mary U, but on CNN they showed it and focused it closely i think two three times and it was definitely not Michael in disguise i far i saw TI was way OFF on that ..............


sarah   September 5th, 2009 12:15 am ET

as far I saw i meant

Luda   September 5th, 2009 12:15 am ET

I suppose we will learn what happened in the reality show! LOL

Good night! everyone!

dream of angels!!

Lori   September 5th, 2009 12:16 am ET

As hard as it is, we need to accept that Michael is gone.


Lois   September 5th, 2009 12:17 am ET

The article really makes u think twice could it be?

Lois   September 5th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Hi angelwings

Lori   September 5th, 2009 12:27 am ET

@angelwings, someone posted the article about Michael and the number 7....Heidi I think it was..

Anyway it was kind of interesting..


Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:28 am ET


Could it be:)

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:32 am ET

MJ's 7's:
– Michael Jackson signed his will on 7/7/02.
– Michael Jackson's memorial was on 7/7/09 … exactly 7 years after the will was signed.
– Michael Jackson's two biggest hits — “Black & White” and “Billie Jean” — were each #1 for 7 weeks.
– Michael Jackson's three biggest albums — “Thriller,” “Bad” and “Dangerous” — each produce
7 top 40 hits.
– Michael Jackson was the 7th pregnancy of Katherine.
– Michael Jackson was born in 1958 … 19 + 58 = 77
– Michael Jackson died on the 25th … 2 + 5 = 7
– Michael Jackson has 7 letters in his first and last name.
– his last tour with the Jacksons started on 7/7
– Look at the date of the letter of MJ's Doc (staged IMO) they had found in MJ's house: July 21, 2002.
July=7, 2+1+2+0+0+2=7. So another 7/7, coincidence?


Hey! The Opus will be release on december 7!
another one….

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:33 am ET

Mary U from Ohio,

Are you still on?

Judie   September 5th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Did anyone hear this when they took Michael to the heicopter the {forgive me} body bags are always black Michaels was white.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 12:35 am ET

@Judie – ok did I miss something? What article? Apparently I should quit doing the laundry so I can focus on what is going on in the bloggy!


angelwings   September 5th, 2009 12:37 am ET

yes I just had to read it lol omg it makes you really think wow I dont know what to say about??????????its so weird can any one make any sence out of it???

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:38 am ET

this is the man on the left he looks light back with a mustache.... he was 4 seats in them two seats in then on the outside seat... then behind the kids... That man never left his seat.... he stood up to hug someone and you can see that it was hard to move his arms...his head movements was Michael's....

the letter that someone had up .. from a Jackson.... at the end of the letter... he said... This is it...this is Michael's Final Curtain Call.. This is the end of his career... the end of his life.... Where did we hear those words... This is it.. This is my Final Curtain Call... These will be my last performances.. He said Theses...... Why announce it....

I think Michael wanted out of Preforming... With everything that had happen he was done... He wanted to end it... What better way to end it... an end to his chapter... And Celebrating His new Life.... That he can live now.... Remember there are Michael's doubles out there... People will be seeing them... the real Michael could be standing right in front of them... all they have to say I'm his double... or he would say...

Mara   September 5th, 2009 12:39 am ET


Now that makes sense. I thought why would they wrap him in a sheet?

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:40 am ET

We Have to remember.. This is about Michael... His life and everything that had happen to him....

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:41 am ET


Made me cry & laugh....thank you so much!

Mara   September 5th, 2009 12:42 am ET


But how will he live his new life without his family and children? I can see him doing without the rest of the world but not them.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 12:42 am ET

More sevens

the funeral was 7 weeks from the day of his death...

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:44 am ET


So you think think he fake his death to be normal live with his kids?

Make me understand I'm very interested.

jacqueline   September 5th, 2009 12:44 am ET

Thanks Linda...Michael was Simply The BEST!!!!

Judie   September 5th, 2009 12:46 am ET

Lori read the above link in sarah's post

Maria   September 5th, 2009 12:49 am ET

Mary U
To say there was anything strange about that old man (who was at the memorial and at the burial, like many others who were invited by the family to attend both events) is to say that we already know the names and faces of all the people who were invited. I mean, like there are 10 or 100 people invited, we know all of them and wonder who's the stranger. But can anyone recognize Dominick Cascio, Martin Bander, Rolf Schmidt Holz, Scott Schaeffer, Joe Marcus, David Rothenberg, Wolfgang Schleiter, Anton Schleiter when they see that video? Of course not! All these people were at the memorial. What is so unusual about an old man with a hat?? And by the way, he wasn't wearing any black glove.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 12:49 am ET

@Mary U of Ohio

Can you say fraud? Mrs. Katherine asked for a million dollars from the estate to pay for the funeral and the probate judge granted it. I think there would be a problem here. Why would anyone risk all that trouble? As hard as it is to deal with, Michael is gone.


Judie   September 5th, 2009 12:51 am ET

also no doctor has ever come out & gave a press conference on his death only Jermaine usually the standing doctor does that....

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:54 am ET

Watch on Michael Jackson's Death: Media Hoax Part 3 Trailer
youtube .....Jonell Star TV...... this guys one...1 through 11 or 12 he has up..look for his... With what i said keep it in mind..... this guy thinks the same thing... go to his page.....

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 12:54 am ET

Good evening, all.

jacqueline   September 5th, 2009 12:55 am ET

Hello Nicole...How are you doing?

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:56 am ET

I sure the Jackson are going after people...and Michael for what they did. They ruined his life....

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:56 am ET

Hi Nicole!

Judie   September 5th, 2009 12:56 am ET

Hi Nicole how are u tonight?

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 12:57 am ET

Do you think Michael has passed?

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 12:57 am ET

this thing is so confusing lol the 7 the story said he could really be gone but.............

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Michael said Ilove You... I Really Do... From The Bottom Of My Heart... He said this to us.. His Fans... before he left .... the announcement..for the tour... This is how he ended it...

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:01 am ET

Maria ............ at the Memorial he wore the black glove

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:02 am ET

See you in July....But I don't think that was Michael.

Maria   September 5th, 2009 1:02 am ET

Why announce This is it/my final curtain call? Because many artists announce "farewell tours" to make sure that people will understand that this is a unique occasion, the last occasion to see them performing live, and they will buy tickets. It's common marketing, not a suggestion that they will die. Cher and Tina Turner did it, then returned and announced another "farewell tour" and so on. I'm not saying that MJ wanted to do it like Cher and then return. But this is the explanation.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 1:02 am ET

Hi Jacqueline - I'm well, and yourself?

Hi Heidi and Judie.


jacqueline   September 5th, 2009 1:04 am ET

doing a little better than last night. but still Heartbroken

Judie   September 5th, 2009 1:05 am ET

I'm totaly confused also the article said no one has produced a ticket for the sold out concerts

Mara   September 5th, 2009 1:05 am ET

Cher announces every year that it's her final show.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 1:05 am ET

Hi Nicole


tatiana   September 5th, 2009 1:07 am ET

What article? Could you tell me please?

Rhonda   September 5th, 2009 1:10 am ET

Mary U,
So where do you think Michael is at.
There are a lot of things unanswered here.
Please enlighten

Maria   September 5th, 2009 1:10 am ET

No, he didn't wear any glove. It was the shadow, and other people's hands were darkened too by the shadow. But anyway it's irrelevant.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:10 am ET

There is no Fraud.... No ones dollars was spent... only the Jacksons... Michael's estate Paid for it... AEG Paid back the fans that got tickets.... People Paid to see a Memorial... They did... It is really the end of Michael Life... The life we Knew... The life he did Had... Nothing was lost there... We won't see him preform anymore...
The Police are going after people and Doctors for harming Michael...The Media Michael's Biggest Nightmare...

Lois   September 5th, 2009 1:10 am ET

There are alot of things that are strange regarding MJ's death....too many inconsistencies in various levels.

Judie   September 5th, 2009 1:11 am ET

tatiana go up to sarah's post @ 12:39 click on the link & read the article MJ death hoax

Mila   September 5th, 2009 1:11 am ET

Did any of you talk to TI or remember his first post from 7th Aug ?
I searches the blogs around this date but I didn't find any posts from 'The Informer'.
I only found a couple of comments from a guy with the alias 'CC' talking about the death hoax website and urging everyone to go to that website.
However, that guy was clearly noone close to MJ – just someone investigating the inconsistencies around his death.

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:12 am ET

hahaha if we are talking about the number 7 ok here I go as off last night Micheal passed away 70 days ago ok haha and last night was it not to start at 7 or 7:30?? now if you look at the pic on this blog you will 7 flower arrangment not including the ones on Micheals casket lol hmmmmmmmm

tatiana   September 5th, 2009 1:13 am ET

Thanks Judie

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:16 am ET

He will live his life with his Kids and Family... Remember Everyone thinks he's dead... Who is going to be looking for him... Maybe... at some point he will come out... maybe the Movie will explain it...
I will Have respect for him... Why he did this...
He didn't do it to hurt anyone... He was Hurt... By everyone... not his Fans or Family... everyone else...

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:16 am ET

oh I for got one more the invite book for last night from front to back isssssssss 7 pages long lol

Judie   September 5th, 2009 1:17 am ET

I would love to think this is true

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:19 am ET

I agree with you! I want him to be healthy & happy. I just wish he would come back.

sarah   September 5th, 2009 1:19 am ET

ok i read the whole thing, the thing i don't understand that we all know that Michael was a perfectionist he wanted everything to be perfect without any mistake ok so why would he leave all those clues/hints behind i mean so does MJ wanted people to guess or make up the all those hoax stories.......... ok im totally confused :s


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 1:19 am ET

Hey Lori. How are you tonight?


Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:20 am ET

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:21 am ET


He is leaving clues for his fans.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 1:22 am ET

Michael *is* dead, and he is now buried. Let him rest in peace, minus the theories.


angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:23 am ET

funny Heidi is it not and today I did print last nights book and it was 7 pages and did you count the flowers on this blog?? and 70 days as of last night

joanne   September 5th, 2009 1:23 am ET

Goodbye Michael, When I think of your final resting place, I know you are finally at peace.. The beautiful surroundings, it is so serene. And When certain music of yours play, I cant help but smile because I know your mother picked the perfect place for you.

Love J

Maria   September 5th, 2009 1:24 am ET

Mila, if you google "michael jackson death hoax the informer folks", you will find the content of his first post from LKL on other sites, because he posted there the same nonsense (copy-paste).

Mimi Castellanos   September 5th, 2009 1:24 am ET

To linda from newyork:
This is a beautiful video. It make me feel sad because He´s not here, because He pass away, because He was unhappy but...
He rest in Peace now and He´s at the right of GOD.

The Informer August 29th, 2009 12:25 am ET

Hello everyone, it is really me this time. I am extremely upset about the constant imposters that have appeared here. How dare someone place Michael’s A capella Heal The World recording as proof? It is silly and offensive. Michael is very hurt. The “Michael coroner van video” is a fake and has discredited what Michael initiated. Propofol, as those of you who may work in the medical profession know, disappears from the bloodstream after several hours and can not cause intoxication. Michael has taken several combinations of prescription drugs in the past to alleviate him and it has never hindered his abilities let alone caused his demise. You will soon understand why all of this has been orchestrated the way you have all read. Michael has the heart of a lion.
Blessings and keep your eyes and hears open,
-The Informer

This was one of his/her posts that day.

Mila   September 5th, 2009 1:41 am ET

I couldn't find it – did he sound like a person who's in touch with MJ and knows what he knows for sure or did he sound like a hoax investigator ?

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:42 am ET

Look He planned it well.. but some figure it out sooner... then he expected.... That Coroner van leaked out.... They had to cover it... just like..Six Sense... there were Clues but we missed them... only when we seen the end... then playing it again... oh yeah... it was right of me and i missed it...
Michael is a Genius... well planed out... a perfectionist...

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:43 am ET

sorry guys this 7 thing is is helping not to thnk about last night...........but if you count june to dec its 7 months

Lori I agree with you 100%

sarah   September 5th, 2009 1:46 am ET

has anyone notice that when Jermain Jackson was on LKL last time when he talked about his Vienna tribute larry king wife was on that show too and in the very end Jermaine said something about his voice and recording/ rehearsal and larry said yah MJ was a real kidder and yesterday when that Jim murray from INSIDE edition was talking with GUTTUM CHOPRA (they were talking about fun times ) and Jim said that yah MJ WAS A REAL PRANKSTER ......... hmmm


Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:46 am ET

Look He planned it well.. but some figure it out sooner… then he expected…. That Coroner van leaked out…. They had to cover it… just like..Six Sense… there were Clues but we missed them… only when we seen the end… then playing it again… oh yeah… it was right infront of me and i missed it…
Michael is a Genius… well planed out… a perfectionist

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:48 am ET

I am sad... cause we won't see him preform anymore...

Lois   September 5th, 2009 1:48 am ET

Mary U – yes he was a perfectionist...could it be when he said See you in July, he meant the memorial service?

Lori   September 5th, 2009 1:49 am ET

@Mary U of Ohio

Please, just give it a rest. Michael is dead. The hoax thing just hurts everyone by prolonging the grieving process.


Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:49 am ET


I love it.....MORE

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:50 am ET

wow Lori I remeber that but after the 29 was it prven on Aug 31 that it was a fake van??

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 1:52 am ET


What book are you talking about with 7 pages?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 1:53 am ET

Sarah, are you referring to Jim Moret and Gotham Chopra?


sarah   September 5th, 2009 1:54 am ET

yah JIM MORET said it sorry abt the spelling mistakes

Mila   September 5th, 2009 1:56 am ET

Girls, don't give yourself false hope only to get hurt by the inevitable obviousness of the reality.
There's no prank – MJ is gone

And btw last night I read a little about P.T.Barnum and I found put that he did really say that line "A sucker is born every minute" – it was his competitor who said that and stuck it on P.T.Barnum later.
I'm sure Michael would have known that and if The Informer was such a thick pal with MJ he'd known it too.
It was quite a relief for me to find out P.T.Barnum didn't say this line because I was wondering how MJ could have liked someone who'd refer to his audience as suckers.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 1:57 am ET

I am totally going to keep my "hears" open. LOL


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 1:57 am ET

In March, when Michael said he'd see us in July, he meant that he would see his fans in London. Nothing more, nothing less.

He was tragically murdered before he was able to fulfill that promise. He's gone, and his murderers need to be arrested, tried, convicted and jailed for a very long time.


angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:57 am ET

Mary my mistake I remeber that post on the blog I do belive it was some one namedMary to prove a point that any one can be aTHE INFORMER and if you look at it keep your eyes open and ears THE INFORMER NEVER MADE A SPELLING MISTAKE OK BUT LOOK AT WHAT YOU POSTED NOT KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND HEARS


Maria   September 5th, 2009 1:57 am ET

Hi, Nicole!
I feel that everything is very unreal. Like in a very bad dream. I didn't felt like this on July 7. It was sad, tragic... but guess I got my closure then. I thought things would be different and the "peace" we talk about will come. I couldn't imagine that everything would get so worse and weird – the doctors, the investigation, the burial, the fight for money, SO many accusations thrown by everyone, SO much nonsense told again and again.

sarah   September 5th, 2009 1:58 am ET

ok I Have to go now Takecare all Bloggers,

Michael we love you and miss you, I Hope you are happy where ever you are 😀



Mila   September 5th, 2009 1:58 am ET

And btw last night I read a little about P.T.Barnum and I found out that he DIDN'T really say that line “A sucker is born every minute” – it was his competitor who said that and stuck it on P.T.Barnum later.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 2:00 am ET

I can only be on for now to all let you know of my earlier post.

Barbara, it will soon be concluded….The 5 day surprise was more of the extraordinary details you have all seen including the postponement of Michael’s “burial” until the 3rd of September…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.

-The Informer

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 2:02 am ET

Yes I did angelwings:)

What book are you talking about with 7 pages?

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 2:04 am ET

Lois... Never thought of that... that could be what he meant..

tatiana   September 5th, 2009 2:05 am ET

On ET page there is the funeral programm in pdf, I put today the link, but I can`t find it, disapeared,

tatiana   September 5th, 2009 2:06 am ET

This is the book Angelwings is talking about, i think,

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:06 am ET

@Mary U from Ohio

There was a burial. It happened last night. Denial is a stage of grief. But now it is time to move along. Ok? For your own sake. 🙂


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 2:07 am ET

I know, Maria. The tragic circumstances have seemingly grown "legs" and are running amok and out of control. It is ridiculous. The family has not received the respect and closure they deserve.

Unfortunately, the investigation remains, and more nonsense will be ongoing. I pray that the perpetrators are swiftly punished. They cannot be allowed to remain free. Not after what they did to Michael.


Maria   September 5th, 2009 2:09 am ET

Mary U, the coroner video was a hoax made by the German network RTL. It was not "leaked"!

Mila – no, it was only a damn list of youtube videos to "prove" that Janet and the others looked at the old man with the hat when they were on the stage or that they happened to speak in present tense about MJ. Nonsense.
And you have a good point about PT Barnum: you can find for every artist a lot of symbols, lyrics, favorite themes, quotes, books or movies that can prove absolute anything. TI thinks that MJ made it by the rules of PT Barnum. The other loser thinks that MJ wanted to make a movie. This is the advantage of hoax theories, that they are simple and coherent. Reality is different.

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 2:11 am ET

Thank tatiana I'll go find it maybe.

tatiana   September 5th, 2009 2:13 am ET

Heidi, I can send you the pdf if you don`t find it, just tell me
Bye people

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 2:14 am ET

Good night, Tatiana.


Lois   September 5th, 2009 2:14 am ET

Maria – the "other loser" – this is someone who is human with their own opinions....maybe just leave it at that, but don't be calling them losers for expressing their opinions.

Lois   September 5th, 2009 2:15 am ET

Nite Tatiana, sweet dreams.

tatiana   September 5th, 2009 2:16 am ET

Thanks Nicole, Lois, the same to you

Maria   September 5th, 2009 2:17 am ET

@ angelwings: it was me who said that anyone can pose as an "informer", but I think that anyone who spends enough time online knows that the net is full of people who have fun or try to seek attention by posing as something they aren't. Or who steal identities – look at John-the-banned, who pretended he was Gene.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:18 am ET

Night tatiana – see you soon


angelwings   September 5th, 2009 2:20 am ET

if you count june to dec is 7 months........

but it is after 2 am and this old doll needs sleep I will see you all later today

happy blogging all

Mila   September 5th, 2009 2:20 am ET

There were several reasons why I believed The Informer as much as I did:
– he claimed he was in touch with Michael;
– he denied some popular rumors which others used to prove the hoax:
1) he denied that O2 press conference was not MJ – TI said this was indeed MJ while he could have easily said it wasn't this to support his story;
2) he denied the coroner van rumor – this video was as fake as it gets to me but most deathhoaxers embraced this clue right away;
– he somehow knew there would be no funeral on 29th;

Unfortunately that's all – everything else was quite shallow:
– the death certificate was not signed by LaToya – I don't know where they came up with that – it was properly signed and stamped from the beginning – LaToya's name there was probably for family member to confirm his identity;
– the old man at the memorial didn't wear any glove;
– the helicopter video was very vague;

Maria   September 5th, 2009 2:20 am ET

OK, sorry about "the loser". You're right.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 2:27 am ET

I wish i Knew who the informer is... But it could be Michael..... ..It all does make sense.......That wasn't Michael making the This is it tour announce.. You can tell it ain't Michael... Have you ever known Michael to move around that much in his speakings... He almost slipped up" This is why he started smiling.. am turned to that guy.... and went to him....
That Mary is me... I started listening to everything being said... I listened to Michael... all the interviews.. Him saying... No face surgeries,, Maybe his nose twice but nothing else... The Has a Heart... People ignored it...Michael had to defend himself..... The Truth.... ... He kept saying the Truth... No one listen..... Michael would never let anyone harm him... and he would not bring any harm to himself... He was not a Drug user.. This is trusting in him... With all the good that he did for Humanity.. til the end... That is someone who cares for life and himself... I trust Him...
When someone called him a name... Never once did we hear him call a name back...

Heidi   September 5th, 2009 2:29 am ET

Very well said Mila:)

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:30 am ET

@Mary U of Ohio

Explain the body, the autopsy? This dog don't hunt. It really is it. He's gone.


Maria   September 5th, 2009 2:35 am ET

He denied that at the O2 press conference was not MJ – this is maybe the only thing I am grateful to him for. Seriously.

But about the coroner van – he denied this on Aug 29, but RTL assumed the paternity of the video on Aug 26. And remeber he told us that he's a kind of a moderator on MJDH – but on Aug 29, the latest post on the site was about the video, described as the ultimate proof that MJ is alive.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 2:38 am ET

The first announcement made was Michael... for ..."This Is It " Tour The Second announcement wasn't... There were Two separate announcements made..
They kept saying Michael looks kept changing... No they Didn't... all concerts he looked the same... In Bashir interview... He said he didn't change... you get older... he only did his nose... no cheek bones... Now knowing there are Michael doubles out there .. They had surgeries to look like Michael... When they see Michael thinking it is him... What are they seeing... Wider cheeks.. Lighter skin... Hair different... . Then the Media comes back saying Michael Changed...

Mila   September 5th, 2009 2:41 am ET

I don't know if it was or it wasn't Michael at O2 announcement and it really doesn't matter in relation to the death hoax. The point I was making was that The Informer could have taken advantage of this rumor to add it to his arguments like all the other death-hoaxers were doing. It was probably their most believable speculation because MJ really acted so different there.
When he denied this rumor it made his more credible for me – that's all I was saying.

As for the O2 announcement – my personal belief is that this was MJ even though I was also suprised by some of the things he did.

I watched that video about a thousand times, looked at the photos trying to see the eyes behind the sunglasses and compared the hands – the lines on the hands and the shape of the hands looked exactly the same to me. So I think it was MJ.

jacqueline   September 5th, 2009 2:43 am ET

Good Night Everyone

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:43 am ET

I only remember one announcment. When was the other one?


Jacquelyn   September 5th, 2009 2:45 am ET

Michael is dead. He is gone. You just have to face facts before it will destroy you. I love Michael more than anything. Just like his family and everyone else who loves him. Anyone of us would do anything we can to bring him back. BUT WE CANT. He is dead. Stop grasping at straws. Stop looking at things that are not there. You are only seeing this because you want to. Hey if I am wrong and it is a prank then and only then I will apologize. But its not one. Let it go. Michael is at a better place.

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 2:45 am ET

If they are trying to bring down people... The Van video could of ruined it.... so they had to cover it saying it's a fake video... it would blow the case...

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 2:46 am ET

This is crazy. Michael is gone. He is not alive. His family is in pain. Just leave it alone. Please.


Heidi   September 5th, 2009 2:47 am ET


That wasn't Michael hands are different everything.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 2:49 am ET

Good night, Jacqueline.

Hey Jacquelyn. How are you tonight?

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:52 am ET

@Mary U of Ohio

Honey, you need some grief counseling. Please do yourself a favor and talk to someone about these delusions. I am really worried about you. You seem stuck in the denial phase.


Jacquelyn   September 5th, 2009 2:53 am ET

Hi Nicole.

I am fine and you?

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:53 am ET

Good night Jacquline and hello Jacquelyn

Mila   September 5th, 2009 2:55 am ET

If anyone needs a fantastical idea to help them through their grief I can offer this one – how about time travel. It's just fiction today but so were airplanes and spaceships a few centuries ago.
Some day people will build a time machine – the current scientific theories say that time travel may be possible.
All we need to do today is carry on MJ's legacy and the dream that someone from the future will come back to save him and maybe some day it will happen and the present for all of us will change 🙂

Well, I said it was fantastical 🙂
But it does give me hope sometimes.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 2:57 am ET

@Mila – that is a creative theory!


Jacquelyn   September 5th, 2009 2:57 am ET

Hi Lori, How are you?

Kim from MN   September 5th, 2009 2:59 am ET

This informer sure has stirred things up, huh?

I would love to believe that Michael is alive and this is some ploy for him to disappear and finally have a life without all of the scrutiny, but I'm not sure. We can always come up with explanation of things to make it fit what we want to believe. If this is a hoax Michael sure has some explaining to do, but I wouldn't love him any less! Way to go Michael! I was thinking of all of the 7's that have been involved and I thought when the tickets were going to be going on sale for This Is It – September 27th – theres another 7 to add to the list. Also, in the last pic of Michael in the ambulance it looks like his mouth isn't covered all the way with the oxygen mouth piece – how can you pump oxygen into someone's mouth if it isn't going into the mouth? Again the eyes can play tricks.

I thought the 02 announcement was a bit odd at times too. Michael is usually nervous, but there were movements even odd for Michael. Can't say I was convinced with the voice either – sometimes it sounded like him and then again not. I've been comparing pictures too!

Oh well, it's bed time.

Love and miss you Michael.

Mila   September 5th, 2009 3:03 am ET

I have to confess that the first thing I've been doing every morning (and then all through the day) for the last 2 months is to check all news sites – hoping to see only one headline "MJ is alive"

But when sanity gets its grip back on me I know he's gone – if for no other reason then at least for the simple fact that it's just wrong to stage one's own death. He wouldn't have done that

Lori   September 5th, 2009 3:05 am ET

I am ok Jacquelyn. Today is better than yesterday.


Alicia from Hawaii   September 5th, 2009 3:12 am ET

Hey Everyone, is the Randy Taraborrelli book worth reading? The Magic and the Madness, The Whole Story? I heard that this biographer always believed he did molest those children. Anybody have any other information?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 3:12 am ET

Jacquelyn - I'm well. Tired though.


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 3:18 am ET

Michael did not molest anyone. I am so tired of hearing this junk.


jacqueline from holland   September 5th, 2009 3:36 am ET

hi there how are you all doiing?
lois 11.26 i think its dark no one will see something any more when family and friends are gone on one nows now were the place is exept foer the famely now they bougt a lot of plots there

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 5th, 2009 3:40 am ET

Hi, Jacqueline from Holland. How are you? What time is it over in Holland?


Nancy Endari   September 5th, 2009 3:42 am ET

It's really beautiful. I'm very touched.
Rest in peace, Michael. You'll surely be missed in my heart forever.
I have to say this, I am saddened by the fact that media could get coverage on his private burial service. What does it mean by private? who arranged this? Michael's whole life was in public eye, now his burial too? I feel heartfelt for his family. Their grief exposed on TV.

Maggie   September 5th, 2009 3:45 am ET

Why his beloved brothers, sisters and parents can not even pay for his burial? They say they cared for him. Taking care of your loved ones is something beyond speaking good things about them.

Where was this family when he doctors prescribed him drugs? Nobody takes presciption drugs unless doctors prescibe them & unless doctors tell you that you have to take it. Where was family when he was not well?

The media also wrote wrong stories & humiliated him just to sell their magazines & channels & Paparazzi . Its all about money !!!

Why Lisa marie and elizabeth taylor had to come and help him when he had so many family members? Its all about money!!!

The legal cases against him were again for money.

When useless people like these who cannot earn money in a respectful manner because of the plain fact that they have got no skill, expertise & they try to cash on someone else's money!!!

Look at the tabloids, media, so called TV interviewers, Paparazzi & it reminds me of Michael's song Money......Lie it, spy, kill, die for money....They'll sell their soul to devils for money...

I love you Michael !!! Rest in Peace !!!! LOVE YOU BABY !!!!

jacqueline from holland   September 5th, 2009 4:00 am ET

hi Nicole the time here is 10.00 et

Irina , Europe   September 5th, 2009 4:05 am ET

September 4th, 2009 5:22 am ET

Michael will be forever a Messenger of GOD.
He will be the Protector of the earth , of the sick childrens , the drugs victims , the tabloids victims.
Good people will study and will spread his legacy in the world. there are so many people in the earth who don’t speak english and understant very very litle or nothing from his lyrics and and messages , and even then , they love , and adore , and respect Micheal . WHY? Because Michael always sang and spoke from his heart , trought a secret vibrations who touched the souls.
Peoples loved him , not only his music . He was much more than an enterteiner.
I hope we can learn the lesson of love , pain and faith Michael give us trough his music and mostly trough his special life.
God bless you Michael and your wonderful childrens!

jacqueline from holland   September 5th, 2009 4:06 am ET

you know i realy realy wish this was a hoax
but i dont think so
i wish there is something we can do for MichaeL
So he have justice and peace he"s done so much in his live for all the fans and all over the world

sabrina   September 5th, 2009 4:09 am ET

RIP my angel

Maria   September 5th, 2009 5:02 am ET

I wish other things were untrue too. His drug abuse and all the people who claim now that they haven't seen anything wrong. The "friends" who give interviews or plant stories about his kids and his sexuality. Tohme Tohme. His biographers who lack the humility to admit that they weren't so close to him as they pretend. Diane Dimond lying to Susan Etok about her change of mind on the child molestation issue. Grace's confessions to Daphne Barak. His former lawyers, doctors and employees who appear today as "friends of the family". The hate towards Katherine Jackson, Lisa Marie or Debbie Rowe, coming from people who know them only from youtube. And I'm afraid the list will grow longer.

Jessica   September 5th, 2009 5:03 am ET

Irina, You are soo right. People all over the world felt his heart, even if they didn't know the words.The most loved entertainer around the world, as well known and respected as the Pope. That says it, doesn't it? He was a gift sent from God, he spread his message for God through his talent. We were so fortunate to be alive for this. Rest with the angels Michael. We will carry on your message now.

Susan62509   September 5th, 2009 5:09 am ET

Hi Maria:

It sounds like you are getting as fed up as I am. Everyone re-hashing the same old things all over again 100 times.

Alicia from Hawaii   September 5th, 2009 5:10 am ET

I know Michael didn't molest anyone, I was just wondering if the book was worth reading.

I wrote an email to Diane Dimond, not a very nice one, and she wrote back to say she just told the truth, sorry if it hurts me. Can you believe that? Either she is in complete denial and actually believes herself, or she is a chronic liar. maybe both,

I love you Michael. I wish you were still alive. MaryU, I wish you were right, maybe you are, but the grief on Katherine's face at funeral seemed real.

Michael, a true light, a gift. I hope I can keep the light on by myself now. Love you forever.

Jessica   September 5th, 2009 5:10 am ET

Maria, I for one choose to ignore the negative reports etc. It does no good to dwell on them. Michael did his best to ignore them and live the best life he could. It is better to put all our energy and thoughts into the beautiful thoughts of all Michael did and to carry on in his path. Be kind to all people and animals, help the needy and take care of our Earth. Honour they creator, give thanks and just do good everyday. Thank you Michael for you love and inspiration, your gifts and your heart. We will always remember you. Your spirit lives on through your music,, in all our hearts.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 5:14 am ET

Hi everyone – I thought everyone had gone to bed for the night!


Emmy Lalonde. BELGIUM.   September 5th, 2009 5:32 am ET

Michael, now that you found a final place to have rest, we know where you are and hope to be able to visit you somedy to pay our respect to you by the permission of your mother and family. Our thanks that they did a great FUNERAL for you, without any accident, as we followed it.
Your MOM looks rather tired than before, perhaps she had nigth long to let you really gone. AND we ourself could never explain why you're impacted our life so much deeply, even more after your death, which none of words could find, excepted our strongest POWER of LOVE to you that we could not descriped enough how big really it is to say, till the end of our time. We beleive on you, and know better who you are than those bad people who tried to disturb our union of LOVE to you. You're really special to us, an exceptional human being we love more than NONE of other ONE could ever replace you. You're really a great
ONE while staying always humble, well also on dressing, amazing on each show, real great performer and entertainer, having always a nice hair styling style, full of beauty on your body as also inside your heart that we could never compare you with others however and the MOST sexiest man that we ever knew. WELL, MICHAEL, don't worry, as we will watching you, over and over again and be always with you forever. May JUSTICE be done quickly to whom envolved and did something dirt and very wrong to you, to let you really GONE. WE love you MORE MICHAEL, have a nice resting place in peace. GBU

Just think about it!

Stu,Hungary   September 5th, 2009 6:05 am ET

Hi Lori,here is 10 oclock in the morning.

Emmy Lalonde. BELGIUM.   September 5th, 2009 7:05 am ET

cherubijne, The Netherlands   September 5th, 2009 7:23 am ET


thank you.

With love

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   September 5th, 2009 7:24 am ET

Please!!!!!!!!!!! Stop giving the Informer attention, Ignore him or her completely. This is so distrespectful to the family. Look at those beautiful children. Give them their opportuinity to mourn and make closure.

STOP THIS NONSENSE!!! You are feeding the Informer, he or she loves it. It is a scik person!

Then, I see they took away my link to Gotham Chopra's blog in Huffington post. if you like to see the reasons he gave for not being at the funeral, go there!

Kathe   September 5th, 2009 8:35 am ET

Michael, I will never forget you. You are and always will be a star that shown so brightly to the world. You are truly missed and loved more than you know. I will love you forever!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 5th, 2009 8:42 am ET

Just read an article about the funeral and for God's sake they are referring to Michael as JACKO!

Michael did not like the term....he said so to Oprah in his 1993 interview with her.

Why dont they hurst the family and his fans.

Patty Anderson   September 5th, 2009 9:56 am ET

Good Morning everyone

chris   September 5th, 2009 10:16 am ET

Michael was buried exactly 10 weeks from when he passed, not 7.

Something I like about 7 is that it rhymes with heaven. MJ always tried to bring heaven-like qualities to this earth. Now he is watching over his children from heaven.

Judie   September 5th, 2009 10:28 am ET

Good morning Patty Anderson & everyone......... alot going on but fear not the truth will come & Michaels family will be in our prayers.

Patty Anderson   September 5th, 2009 10:33 am ET

Good Morning Judie. There is alot going on. It bothers me though that we are not hearing anymore about the investigation... I hope the police don't think this will all just blow over and everyone will forget. If they don't bring justice for Michael. There will be such an out cry from all over the world.
I have been praying for the family everyday. Katerine looked so distraught at the funeral.

Judie   September 5th, 2009 10:39 am ET

Did anyone read the TMZ article with Randy Jackson........

The Media needs to stop this crap........ did they not learn anything from Princess Diana? Just leave these people alone and let them grieve.

boomeranddalejr   September 5th, 2009 11:02 am ET

its about time they put him to rest – wonder what is thought about the whole 70 day hanging around?? Too bad his fans cant get into the place – guess they can just put flowers out side the door

sherry   September 5th, 2009 11:17 am ET

Good Moring all,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hey ? here............I was laying in bed thinking,and I dont remember seeing Michaels oldest sister at the funeral??

Patty Anderson   September 5th, 2009 11:18 am ET

Sherry are you referring to Rebbie?

Patty Anderson   September 5th, 2009 11:18 am ET

Sherry everyone is on the Janet blog

sherry   September 5th, 2009 11:25 am ET

ok,,,,,,,,,,ty yes i was

Sheletta   September 5th, 2009 11:40 am ET

From what I understood, the graves site where Mihael was laid to rest, does let tourist come to the place but in certain hours. You can find out more by calling. The said that in the newspaper that they close it down for tourist that thursday just for the private service.

NINA YIRDAW   September 5th, 2009 11:59 am ET

Claire : What a beautiful poem!

Michael Joeseph Jackson R.I.P dear. There will not be one soul who is beautiful inside and out as you were. I will always LOVE you. I will continue to collect your musics and videos. I and the rest of the world will remember you FOREVER. MJ FOREVER!!!

NINA YIRDAW   September 5th, 2009 12:37 pm ET

Deb looney, Emmy lalonde, Mariau, ......and all of MJ's fans what a beautfiul peom and way of expressing your feeling. I Love you all. My heart filled with joy that we are so many of us with the same feeling to share. What a blessing Michael. This shows to the world that you were a blessed one. Love you MJ

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:38 pm ET

Lori.....You are calling Michael a Drug Addict... You are watching his video and commenting on him..... Who is the sick one....

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

At least I believe in Michael... I am his real Fan

Samantha - South Africa   September 5th, 2009 12:49 pm ET

@ Mary

I also believe in Michael and I think this whole thing about him being a 'drug addict' is being 'blown out' of proportion by the media who only have one thing in mind and that's to 'trash' him!This is the very reason why I decided to take a stand and sent Diane Dimond(she called Michael a 'drug addict' in her recent article)an email voicing my opinion but as always when confronted with how bias she truly she is,she finds some other way to bring Michael down!!!

Luda   September 5th, 2009 12:50 pm ET

Mary U: People Paid to see a Memorial…

Hi everyone!
Just to say people did NOT pay to see the memorial...they just had to show a number they received by email to prove they were the winners!

It was free.....

I'll come back later!

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 12:57 pm ET

Who do you believe the Media ...or Michael... When Michael spoke the Truth.... .. The Media said reacently.. ... Michael nose fell off.. This wig came off. His Dad Kicked him in the N-ts.... Michael only called his dad ..Joe....

Media Lies...

Michael home Movies... Mcculkin Pushes Michael off the Diving Board... ..When Michael comes to the top his hair is intact to his head... He dives again it is still on... He brushes his hair back with his hand... Hair still there.. and his nose...

Joe kick Michael there... Doctors and Hospital... would of notice something...
Joe Jackson Day... Michael alot of times... says " My Father".....using Father in good terms...

Luda   September 5th, 2009 1:05 pm ET

Luda,The Informer didnt said,that Liberian girl gonna be the ond of the funeral

@ STU,

I never said that! You didn't read me well. I said the informer told us at the july memorial the picture of Leberian girl at the end was a sign... and I just noticed it was the same picture at the funeral... I never said he told us the same picture would be at the funeral. It's me who noticed it was the same picture on the programme of the funeral then at the memorial.

Just to set the record straight.... 🙂

Luda   September 5th, 2009 1:12 pm ET

@ Stu,

I didn't say I believe the Informer.... don't worry I know Micheal is dead.

We were just noticing things that were strange at the funeral and since the beginning of this strory... because someone last night said on CNN they said there was no body that had been buried...
That's how the convesation about informer started...

don't worry. He is dead. 🙂

Luda   September 5th, 2009 1:15 pm ET


I woke up with the same thought!
I didn't remember seeing Rebbie!

Samantha - South Africa   September 5th, 2009 1:19 pm ET

Hey Guys

Anyone heard of Shana Mangatal?She dated Michael for a few years up until he married Lisa Marie.

Barbara   September 5th, 2009 1:23 pm ET

I wish The Informer had never come on!

I have to admit, it has been a rollercoaster ride for me these past two and a half months. I feel in the depths of my heart, that Michael Jackson has passed on. The family could never look the way they did at the burial, if this was all false.

Jacquelyn   September 5th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

Luda and Sherry

Rebbie was there. They showed her before showing Janet

angelwings   September 5th, 2009 1:29 pm ET

Hey Mariau

Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 1:37 pm ET

Luda....That is right...

Judie   September 5th, 2009 1:39 pm ET

I think they are working on the investigation but I also think they want to let the Jacksons settle in alittle bit and re-group.

Sheryl   September 5th, 2009 1:39 pm ET

Rest in peace; we forever love you and miss you here on earth.

mariau   September 5th, 2009 1:40 pm ET

samantha- i like your letter addressed to Diane Dimond.. what a wonderful letter. 🙂 how are you?

mariau   September 5th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

i'm having a hang over about last night still couldn't stop crying...

Jame   September 5th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

They don't need to re-group, they need to start lighting some fire under some as*es and get things rolling before investigators try to put it on the back burner.

Samantha - South Africa   September 5th, 2009 1:46 pm ET

@ Mariau

Thanks,I just couldn't take anymore of Demon's BS and took the initiative to tell her like it is once and for all!

Anyways,its 7:46pm in my part of the world so I'm just chilling and listening to Michael.

What are you up to?

Judie   September 5th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

Jame well said

mariau   September 5th, 2009 1:48 pm ET

Samantha – South Africa – did you ever heard Mariau she's girlfriend of Michael, i think they had a loving relationship.. in mariau's dream. 🙂 🙂
hahahaha... 🙂 oooh samantha we really miss Mj... i remembered in his Martin Bashir interview MJ said i am married to my fans...

Samantha - South Africa   September 5th, 2009 1:57 pm ET

@ Mariau

Lol,a girl can just dream............

Michael really loved & embraced his fans,come to think of it,there is actually no other celeb I know of that cared about their fans like he did!

mariau   September 5th, 2009 2:00 pm ET

samantha- you are right.. he is the only celeb down to earth. that's why he was loved by many people.

mariau   September 5th, 2009 2:03 pm ET

samanthat – you're smart about that letter.. i've praise for that...
any news about Mj investigation?

Judie   September 5th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

I was watching youtube Geraldo interview re: Eminen making fun of Michaels hair on fire he did not trash him back all he said why would another artist make fun of another artist....... He{Michael} would never do that.

Samantha - South Africa   September 5th, 2009 2:11 pm ET

@ Judie

If there is anyone in the music industry who had 'real' integrity,it was Michael!He never once raised his voice or expressed his anger and even when he appeared on 60 minutes about being a victim of police brutality and was in so much pain,he maintained his calm composure throughout.As for Eminem,he's a 'write off' in my books so no comment!

Judie   September 5th, 2009 2:13 pm ET

mariau, making fun of someone is one thing ....but getting burned by a fire that is not funny at all that is just sick

Judie   September 5th, 2009 2:16 pm ET

Samantha, right u are

mariau   September 5th, 2009 2:16 pm ET

Samantha – South Africa- i agree with you to emenem make fun with his own mother.... his just a peace of sh- in music industry

mariau   September 5th, 2009 2:18 pm ET

i don't remember any kind of song by emenem.. never heard

denise   September 5th, 2009 2:59 pm ET

mariau - Thanks so much...

rosegarden   September 5th, 2009 3:07 pm ET

Hi ladies, do be upset with a Eminem, he acted like a clown by making fun with MJ, the world laughed at him not MJ. Ironically, when I found out MJ owns his catalogue, I laugh harder....

Lori   September 5th, 2009 3:10 pm ET

@Stu and Luda

I think the family chose the photograph of Michael from the Liberian Girl video shot for both the Staples Memorial and the Forest Hills Funeral program because he was just so beautiful in it. I do not think that it was supposed to be any type of message either secret or intentional. It was, simply, a picture of Michael in his prime.


mariau   September 5th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

rosegarden really emenem catalogue .. hahahaha for emenem 🙂

Emmy Lalonde. BELGIUM.   September 5th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

Hay Cherubijne, thanks and love from Belgium as well. GBU.

Lori   September 5th, 2009 3:17 pm ET


I guess Michael got the last laugh on Mr. Emenem after all. Word to Emenem – do not bite the hand that owns your catalog.


Mary U from Ohio   September 5th, 2009 3:43 pm ET

Lori..... I am Mary U then change it to Mary U from Ohio cause there is another Mary out there...

I am here to protect Michael....
Who are the Media... What make the media.... People... Martin Bashir was asking Michael questions that people wanted the answers to... some or alot of these were his fans... Michael Answered Them... Michael say... The Truth... Before you condemn me...
This is what Michael said at the award.. Time and time again Michael had to explain himself... cause people have a problem believing him...WHY??????
Michael Jackson is honored at the 35th Annual Grammy Awards by his sister, Janet. 1993

What ever the Media saids... I am here to Defend Michael... This is how much i Believed in him.....I see others here Questioning what the Media says..... Wondering if it is true about what they say about Michael.....
You think ... Why would Michael hurt his Fans... If it is a Media Hoax......
This is about Michael... His fans even turned on him...

rosegarden   September 5th, 2009 3:47 pm ET

Well say, Lori!

mariau   September 5th, 2009 3:58 pm ET

Mary u – well said..

Maria   September 5th, 2009 4:54 pm ET

Who are the Media… What make the media…. People… Martin Bashir was asking Michael questions that people wanted the answers to… some or alot of these were his fans…
Exactly. People are curious and intolerant to anything that contradicts their standards of behavior and their beliefs. Many are so quick to blame the media for not respecting his privacy or for telling lies, but they don't admit their appetite for gossiping, spreading the most stupid rumors and mixing rumors with facts.

One example that is getting on my nerves is about Joe "kicking MJ in the nuts" and then about the "painful" surgery for infertility. The "kick in the nuts" rumor has a long history and many variants, one of them being that Joe did that on purpose, to castrate MJ and preserve his high voice. Of course, it's BS. It's not BS because it's offensive to MJ; it's BS because is BS. Now some ignorants associate this old rumor with the inexcusable indiscretion of Paul Gohranson, the ex-boyfriend of Arnold Klein. This Gohranson told the press about the alleged surgery that MJ had for infertility. And this gossip serves very well his pal Klein, who can have another argument to say that Prince and Paris are his kids. This is how it works.

Maria   September 5th, 2009 4:57 pm ET

Susan62509 – September 5th, 2009 5:09 am ET

Hi, Susan! Yes, indeed!!

MaryRM   September 5th, 2009 5:35 pm ET

@Maria – I agree completely about the ridiculous rumours and the appetite that many people have for gossip. Just remember please people – this gossip hurt Michael and if you bought it or believed it, you were the one hurting him. Remember the words of Tabloid Junkie: "To buy it is to feed it." Here are more:

It's slander
With the words you use
You're a parasite in black and white
Do anything for news
And you don't go and buy it, buy it
And they won't glorify it, 'fy it
To read it sanctifies it

I have never bought a tabloid and so did not hear many of the silly rumours until after Michael died and mainstream media talked about them. It appears that it was the media that was constantly trying to castrate Michael. the stories are so ridiculous, I can't understand anyone reading, let alone believing such nonsense.

And how would Klein know anything about this issue? He is a dermatologist, a skin doctor.

Hi what is it abour Eminem? what did he do? And also is there any channel transmitting right now presenting about Michael in USA?

Alicia from Hawaii   September 5th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

Hi Everyone, I know you all are saying he is in a better place, and at peace, etc. But I cant' help feel the pain for the pain he felt while here on this earth. My heart breaks for that. Here is something nice for you Patty Anderson and all MJ fans; I love him more every day:

Here's another article about MJ. The author found a very touching note of MJ and this really makes me cry:

by Aberjhani
co-author of Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance
and ELEMENTAL The Power of Illuminated Love

June 26, 2009, 12:56 pm (excerpts)
Michael Jackson giving it his all in concert around 1995. (photographer unknown)
You probably can't read the words in the note next to the accompanying photo of Michael Jackson, but they were handwritten by the singer himself during the mid 1990s when he was constantly on tour and just as constantly a subject of much public ridicule and condemnation. This note was composed on hotel stationery and, complete with original spellings, grammar, and format, reads as follows:

"like the old Indian proverb says do not judge a man until you've walked 2 moons in his moccasins.

Most people don't know me, that is why they write such things in wich most is not true

I cry very very often because it hurts and I worry about the children all my children all over the world, I live for them.

If a man could say nothing against a character but what he can prove, history could not be written.

Animals strike, not from malice, but because they want to live, it is the same with those who criticize, they desire our blood, not our pain. But still I must achieve I must seek truth in all things. I must endure for the power I was sent forth, for the world for the children.

But have mercy, for I've been bleeding a long time now."

M.J. (circa 1995)

A lot of tabloids, magazines, websites, radio stations, entertainment personalities, and retail chains made tons of good hard cash peddling before the world what they presented as Michael Jackson's eccentricities and possible moral failings. Perhaps now that he has left the stage for the last time, they can pay a bit of that forward by leaning in the opposite direction and honoring the brilliance of his dynamic artistry, the beauty of his dazzling creative passion, and the simple sincerity–however wounded it may have been–of his love for his fellow human beings.

sorry but this wasn't a private ceremony, this was a funeral staged for the upcomming TV show about MJ. There were flashes going off every minute. Why did they invite 200 people??? A funeral is not a wedding!!!
And how come his family didn't have 1 milion $ to pay for it??? Janet made the Forbe's list, she couldn't pich in a buck for her brother. Poor Michael, had to pay for his own funeral.

hi everyone

Sandy-Houston   September 5th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Good evening all,

I don't get on this blog as often as I would like due to my schedule(nurses work crazy hours). But I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for helping me get through the day of Michael's burial with your beautiful words, poems, etc. I tried to keep up throught the day and night, but am still reading some of them.
Just a few to mention...
LORI- Yes, Michael is definitely at peace with his God.
GERALD- Your kind words about Michael mean so much. It is a clear example of what Michael wanted the world to do.
PATTY ANDERSON-Beautiful poem. Michael knows how he's affected the world...I believe God has already shown him.
MARIAU- for your touching words. Yes, God does promise to stand by all of us.
SUSAN 62509- for "My First Day in Heaven"...beautiful.
ELI-ISRAEL- what a privelege to take your written prayer concerning Michael to the Wailing Wall. From your hand to God's ear. PEACE.
SPIRIT-for reprinting the Oxford speech which reminds me what an eloquent and well spoken man Michael was.
KARLA- for your wise words. The one we all love and miss is no longer physically with us on Earth, but we have his spirit, his soul. He is in the presence of God and knows more love than he ever imagined.We can still fill his spirit here everyday in many ways, but I will feel it most when I listen to beautiful music...Michael loved all kinds of beautiful music.
GLORIA-for link to funeral program. He was truly loved when he was born and when he left this world.... and he did DEAL with all the inbetween.
JANICE- I am grateful, too that I lived in the same era as this remarkable man.
SYU-To love like Jesus did and does. Yes, that's what Michael did.
STACY G & IRINA, EUROPE- He is the diamond glint on snow!
PAULINE, GERMANY- What a gift he was indeed!!

I know I have forgotten some, but you all have donea great job at keeping the info going about all that is going on.

And last but not least, thank you all ........for the GOLD PANTS!!! 🙂 🙂

I know the coming days with the charges, trial etc. whatever may happen, will not be easy and will most likely get ugly. I for one, will try to remember how Michael lived his life and not try to get caught up in all the negativity and false information. But it will be darn hard!! 🙂

Let's all remember to SMILE...though our hearts are breaking.

I'll "see" you all when I can on this blog.

Jacquelyn   September 5th, 2009 10:09 pm ET


It a huge family plus Michael had alot of friends. It was private enough since you didnt see the actual funeral. Now alot of people pay for their own funeral. If you buy insurance that is basically what you are doing.

spirit   September 5th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

& Lori
I agree with you regarding the selection of Michael's picture for the memorial service... I thnk there wasn't any intentional or hidden msg... Its just that Michael is looking so beautiful in that picture of his... Genuine, Beautiful and Innocent... Which I think he looked till the time of his death... God! he looks so gorgeous in his final rehearsals... My heart goes out to him... God Bless!

Brigida, Italy   September 5th, 2009 11:43 pm ET

Hi @all!
First of all, I hope you are all well doing. I can't stay that long time here because I startet again with my 12-hour-tours every day, so I come home and need only to sleep. Last two month I didn't much.
But I try to read all your comments here on every blog (just have to read another 300 plus the new blogs, hope I can).

So, you are still with TI and the hoax thing... well, I saw the making of the van-video. RTL showed exactly how they prepared the van, the young actress transformed in "Michael" and the actor who was the driver. Believe me, it IS a hoax!

About the time machine. I thought about it from the first day Michael died. BUT! If it could be true in the future, where would you go? In his childhood to stop his father? Without him Michael perhaps was not the perfectionist he became. To the Pepsi-burning that made him first time victim of prescription drugs? That I would liked to have done. But then there would have been no burning center he donated and do you know how many people he saved with it? Do you know these people? Perhaps someone of them did a great thing for other people or family and so the circle of good goes around. He did so many good things and charity because he went through a rough life and pains and wanted to help others. If he had a simple life perhaps it all changed and we have had a "normal" performer with great talent but we loose this angel and great help to thousands of persons?

The day he died... perhaps we could stop Murray but do we know the real health conditions of Michael that day? Perhaps voices were true he could not do the 50 concerts and he collapsed on stage with a heart attack. Who knows.

The only thing that I think... time machine can bring someone to the times, Michael was married with Lisa. Then go to be best friend to HER, giving her strongth to help his husband and go ahead with the marriage without being influenced by her mother (I remember that Priscilla did a bad job on her on that time) or others. Only this moment could have been the right one to change Michaels life in a better way.
I'm too old for this but maybe some of your children could be able to invent this timemachine and use it 😉

My only doubt is on the announcement. I looked very closely to a picture comparing Michaels hand and a older one. Seems to me that the lines are different. So maybe it was really a double? And then he did a movement at the end.... italian body language say that this is like saying: You got it, now what do you want from me. Never saw this before, Michael never moved his head like this in combination with this face expression. I can't explain it better but perhaps anyone of you has a italian friend. Show it to him/her and they will understand it immediately.

If you could check my old comments you would see that my first one was a message to TI to stop him. And I wrote it several times, I never believed him. But if it is true and Michael returns I will apologize and forgive Michael, I can understand the reasons. BUT I don't believe this and so please do you! He is in a better place, nobody can harm him anymore. And I prefer so! If he was alive, he would have another hell to go through without his family and friends and first of all his children.
Do you want him to live like that? No way.
So, please let him go and make your closure too. I'm already crying but I love him and wish he is happy and at peace now.

Ok now, if I'm not writing that much from now on, I will read you and wish you the best! 🙂

I understand ur words...We all love him and miss him sooo much...

Alicia from Hawaii   September 6th, 2009 12:14 am ET

Spirit, I cried so much reading what you wrote, too, a couple posts up. So beautiful and so true.

And I have that book, or a book, by Kahlil Jibran. maybe I should read it now, it might help me. What he is saying, is that pain comes with love, you can't have one without the other, right? Michael had so much of both, that explains it. You are right, I never ever, saw him get bitter or say a mean word about anyone (except Tommy Mattola from Sony who he called a demon or something, but in 40 years of persecution, that is the only one, that's amazing, he could have blasted a lot of people but he never did.

What a pure, lovely soul he was. Is. He is still in our hearts, forever.

Thank you so much, Michael, for showing us how to love.

I love you so much, I hope you know, you did do what God wanted you to. You did it. You succeeded. And we, your dedicated fans, will continue your legacy.

spirit   September 6th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Alicia from Hawaii

Thanx Alicia for understanding...Yea pain comes with love, you can’t have one without the other... this is exactly what that quote meant... & what I meant was that Michael understood what love actually means... & He in loving the world (the way he did it) showed all of us how to love...
However I don't see that post of mine here... Wonder why they deleted that?

Alicia from Hawaii   September 6th, 2009 1:08 am ET

Spirit, I get some of them emailed to me, so I got it, but I do see they deleted it. How was so beautiful..

spirit   September 6th, 2009 1:13 am ET

& yea he never showed resentment or bitterness towards anyone...

We LOVE you Michael & we'll be there for you always no matter what!!!
You taught us how to love, how to show grace under pressure, how to forgive, how to stay good, how to never get bitter, how to give your all to the word....

We can never thank you enough for all that you did for us... You'll always be there in our thoughts & we'll always be there for you coz we remember the pact:

"You and I can make a pact
We can bring salvation back
Where there is love
I'll be there..."
Love you always...

You ruled the world when you were alive, you ruled the hearts in death...

spirit   September 6th, 2009 1:22 am ET

It was from the chapter LOVE frm the prophet by kahlil jibran... As you said you hav the book so do read it... you wud feel comforted reading that... I did when I read that and then I cud understand all that pain Michael had to bear at the expense of being misunderstood... & the price that he payed for being the extraordinary soul that he was...

Alicia from Hawaii   September 6th, 2009 1:38 am ET

Spirit, I think I will read it. It was a gift from a friend. A book that helped me was called "Good Grief". If you are interested and want the author I'll get it : )
It helped with the grieving, and talks a lot about the same thing, that pain comes with loving, it's a package deal. Shows how much we loved Michael, and how much he loved.
Miss his presence on this earth...

Kim from MN   September 6th, 2009 1:48 am ET

What does everybody think about the theory that Michael staged his own death and he is making a movie and we are all part of it?

Have you wondered about all of the discrepancies and confusions since June 25th?

I would love for it to be true.

Cali MJ Fan   September 6th, 2009 2:05 am ET

The best post ever written!
Reposting for
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

Alicia from Hawaii   September 6th, 2009 2:22 am ET

Kim, I want it to be true, too. So, so much. I just can't imagine him going this far for a movie. But, I guess you never know.

FYI, don't bother watching the CNN presents The Man in the Mirror, at 8:00. It's not very nice, more sensationalism, focusing on the trash rather than Michael, the amazing man that he is....was. oops.

spirit   September 6th, 2009 7:04 am ET


I would LOVE to read that book that you mentioned, "Good Grief"... Do give me the name of the author plz...
& yea Michael will always be missed by all of us forever...

Kim from MN
O how I wish it could be true... but sadly it isn't 🙁

spirit   September 6th, 2009 7:17 am ET

Thanx... All of us will remember Michael for the beautiful soul that he was...And as you said we'll try to SMILE though our hearts are breaking...
SMILE while listening to his beautiful songs while tears roll down our cheeks...SMILE while watching him dazzle the world in his concerts though our hearts are bursting with pain...SMILE listening to his magical words though our hearts ache with a longing to see him once again... We'll SMILE coz he would love to see us smile with tears in our eyes... He brought the gift of joy to all of us... We owe him a lot...
May his soul rest in peace! Ameen!

Lora Ottawa Canada   September 6th, 2009 8:17 am ET


When any "regular" person dies....we pay for our own funeral.......not one else does!

Thanks for sharing the news about your friends visit to the Mausoleum. When I visit California it is a must on my list as well as Neverland!

Alicia from Hawaii   September 6th, 2009 6:55 pm ET

Spirit, the book is "Good Grief, Healing Through the Shadow of Loss" by Deborah Morris Coryell; Healing Arts Press.

Hope you like it. It helped me.

Love Michael forever.

Bella   September 7th, 2009 2:12 am ET

Now that the memorial is over, the burial is over, can we please concentrate on some vital issue, the INVESTIGATION.

Someone here is worried that the worst is yet to come. I fear the same, although to me nothing can be worse than Michael's passing on 25 June.

spirit   September 7th, 2009 5:08 am ET

thnx Alicia
wud definitely read that... : )

rest in peace beloved mike jackson

Emmy Lalonde. BELGIUM.   September 7th, 2009 7:57 am ET

WE didn't see photos but heard that Lisa Presley was attending the FUNERALS's service of Michael Jackson. That's really great on her behalf to have a very kindness great attenton to MIchael and family, that she actually never forget Michael as well, anyhow. At LEAST she told us then she love Michael dearly and showed all the WORLD that she loved sincerely Michael, very very much, however she was not staying much longer on being married to Michael, much more longer than she did, WHICH perhaps could save life of Michael from being so lonely, sad, distress, scare or even from death, when she had her, to have someone he loved like her, to stay, talked and shared all what he needs during all the that time. Well, they have been a very beautiful couple, they could have SOME wonderful kids together FOR Michael, who certainly very beautiful kids as well, to become the gratiest Mom and DAD for Michael's kids, that we could imagine. But anyhow, time told different story for their life and no one could ever turned back this loosing time to make differently for Michael to get his real happiness. That was really bad destiny of Michael final journey of loosing TIME to survive and it is very pity and sad moment to all of us to weak up each day to know that Michael is the fact dead, really gone, by that funeral. While, he will STAY in our heart FOREVER, without ending, till the end of our time, to continue our life to remember all his kindness and love .
Thanks Lisa for being so kind, for loving Michael Jacskon sincerely.
Thanks to attend on his FUNERAL to pay respect to Michael you love
and left some unforgetable memories with you during his LIVINGtime.
Hope you'll also be STRONG as your presence I beleive could be very helpful to Michael's family, mostly for his Mom, to continue his WiLL. GBU.

Emmy Lalonde. BELGIUM.   September 7th, 2009 10:03 am ET

MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON could be remembered as :

MASTER of peaces and love.
In OUR life that we ever HAD.
Chancelor we most needed.
How can our life without him.
An ANGEL that GOD sent US.
Equaly as missioner of GOD.
LIVING better life, wish, places.

JOY n his LOVE for everyONE.
ON his actions n contributions.
SO amazing, kind, forgiveness.
EVEN to one who's bad 2HIM.
Persistent on his will and act.
Humanity tribute of mankind.

JOURNEYS that he'll not end.
A great man, father of 3KIDS.
Chances that we'd big LOST.
KIND of man we LOVE really.
Someone else isn't the same.
ON his love n all what he did.
NOONE else replacing HIM.

Thank you Michael and we love you very much, more, forever.

mari   September 8th, 2009 6:55 pm ET

Can anyone confirm that this is a permanent burial for Michael?
Michael loved children and he loved nature, he would be miserable with the idea of being buried at Forest Lawn, surrounded by walls and adults.

Has anyone considered that the Jacksons should just buy back Neverland and turn it into a non-profit? if they could return Neverland to Michael's original dream and bring back the children this would not only bring back his dream, but would take away the power of the destruction Tom Sneddon caused to ruin Neverland for Michael.

I believe giving Michael back his dream, would change eveything.
I do believe Michael would want this. What he did with Neverland should not be overcome by what Tom Sneddon did.

Mimi from GUATEMALA   September 8th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

To Mari:
I think the same of you. Michael loves nature, children and ... His fans.
I disagree with where he is resting now.

I hope someday change your mind family and see the love the world he gives and will give Michael and let him decide closer to what He loved.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   September 9th, 2009 10:19 am ET

Mari –
I read somewhere, that this may or may not be a permanent burial for Michael.
Deb Looney-
Your poem "To See You Once Again" is so amazing and beautiful, it made me want to cry.
Elizabeth Taylor looking quite frail at the funeral – must be a big blow to her, as she and Michael were very close.
Was Liza Minnelli there also I wonder, as she was another of his close friends.

margaret   September 9th, 2009 12:52 pm ET


i still wanted to see you dance so badly this time...but i do have have all the wonderful memories of your performances and your music will be with me forever...May you rest in peace.

Love – Margaret
