Jermaine Jackson says of Ireland, brother Michael 'loved it here very much, and I love it here too'

Posted: 07:45 PM ET

By Katrina-Kasey Wheeler

In a new interview with Ryan Tubridy of the 'Late Late Show' Jermaine Jackson discussed the love that he and his brother Michael Jackson had for Ireland saying that 'Michael loved it here very much, and I love it here too, and that it was MJ's 'getaway.' Jermaine continued, 'It's just so peaceful. It's green and beautiful. This is why we come.'

Michael Jackson recorded in Ireland with of the Black Eyed Peas, and in 2006 Billy Bush interviewed MJ on location. MJ said at that time, '

Thank you LKL- for a new blog.

Jermaine, it's obvious that your pain for Michael's absence is genuine. We miss Michael more than ever. As dedicated beloved Michael Jackson fans, we will continue to advocate justice for Michael and your greiving family. Michael will forever remain the most brillant, talented artist and human to ever touch our souls.

Jermaine really hurts inside. I believe he really misses his brother. We feel your pain Jermaine. We love and miss him sooo much.
No one will ever come close to the beautiful genius he was.

Maureen (UK)   September 27th, 2009 8:10 pm ET

I'm pleased Jermaine got the chance to speak about his grief & about the cunning ways of some people in the music industry towards his brother Michael.

Thank you for this exerpt CNN.

Jermain your brother was loved by most all people but we shouldnt be sad about his death but instead rejoyce his life and his legend for we all have an appointment with our final destination and then our new life begains.

Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

Hey Everyone,
There's a big write up in our Houston Chronicle about Conrad Murray. Go to and it's in the frontt page section. Things are brewing because of course the article tries to point out the positives.

SuzieCanada   September 27th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

This is a very touching interview with Jermaine. It's obvious he's still hurting. I'm glad he's speaking about the conspiracies against Michael.

VINCENT MANN   September 27th, 2009 9:10 pm ET


Barbara   September 27th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Very good interview.
Jermaine, the world cries with you.

Love you Michael

gigi   September 27th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I just love hearing Jermaine, Janet and Michael's nephew talk about that family gather they had back in May.

@SuzieCanada – agree this is a very touching interview. I found it very interesting how someone had posted an article in the other blog, about how the Neverland raid was planned on the same day Michael's album was released. I had just read that article, and I had no idea that it was actually planned. Then to hear Jermaine mention it during the interview. I really do feel that are conspiracies against Michael.

Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Michael Armstrong Sr-
AMEN! A new life indeed.

Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

This guy Conrad really got around!

denise   September 27th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

MJ we miss you dearly, your legacy will live forever.

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Hi everyone.

Hi Nicole - I bet you are happy to see ablog with Jermaine 🙂


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 27th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Hey Lori - I most certainly am. 🙂

Thanks a million, Larry. You just made my weekend. 🙂


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Has anyone seen Gene?? That would make my weekend. Gene–come back.


Anne   September 27th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

Larry please do a show on the bigotry behind the way Michael Jackson was treated in 2003. I cannot live in a country that allows this to happen to such a vulnerable human being.

Behind the headlines on Michael Jackson

On Nov. 19, 2003–the day Epic Records released a collection of Jackson's greatest-musical hits–police armed with a search warrant carried out a 12-hour raid on Jackson's ranch and amusement park. The next day, Jackson turned himself in to authorities, was booked on felony charges of sexual abuse of a 13-year-old, and was released after posting bail.

The facts about the case have not yet been fully revealed. Nevertheless, Jackson has already been virtually tried and convicted by the media.

The 45-year-old African American, a child star as the lead singer of the Jackson Five, is a legendary, internationally renowned pop star. Since the late 1980s, he has been the brunt of public ridicule in the media for having an increasingly "womanly" appearance and complex gender expression.

The singer was reportedly stripped naked and photographed as part of the investigation." (AFP, Nov. 21)

The perception of a vendetta by the district attorney and demonstrable media bias have led Jackson's family, many prominent African American entertainers and political leaders, and fans of all nationalities to voice their outrage.

The civil rights leader described the raid of the Neverland ranch by more than 70 police–some in flak jackets–accompanied by doctors and an ambulance as "overkill."

Jermaine Jackson said his family supports his brother Michael. "This is nothing but a modern-day lynching."

Odious campaign

Media coverage of Michael Jackson, both before and after these formal charges, has been damning, lurid and seemingly unending. Television stations pre-empted normal broadcasts for live coverage.

After Jackson voluntarily turned himself in to authorities at the Santa Barbara airport, media helicopters hovered in the air as a convoy of police cars and other vehicles escorted him to the county jail. More than one pundit referred to the procession as reminiscent of the slow-speed car chase that preceded O.J. Simpson's 1994 arrest on murder charges.

Over 100 reporters and photographers thronged outside the county jail as sheriffs brought in the 120-pound singer with his hands manacled behind his back.

A Nov. 22 New York Times editorial judged that "there is no doubt that Mr. Jackson is guilty of trying too hard to protect his innocence," which it defined as a child-like "infantilism."

An inordinate amount of prejudicial coverage focused on Jackson's appearance.

Reporting by the New York Daily News was characteristic of tabloid treatment of the case. A four-page feature on the "Jackson sex scandal" on Nov. 21 taunted Jackson for a mug shot "that showed him wearing more makeup than a prom queen." A caption under a photo of Jackson flashing a "peace" sign outside the jail said the singer was doing "his best Richard Nixon impersonation." And an article described Jackson's bedroom as his "creepy lair."

Perhaps the adjective the media use most frequently about Michael Jackson is the word "freak." That epithet needs to be confronted head-on. It lifts a rock on this odious and right-wing campaign and shines light on it.

How is it possible for such a dehumanizing slur to be so widely used against internationally acclaimed and popular Black stars in entertainment and sports? Because even with celebrated skills, money and prominence, they are African Americans in an economic and social system permeated with racism.

spirit   September 27th, 2009 11:01 pm ET


Thnx for the info... Would definitely look into that article... Something positive should happen on that front... They are taking ages regarding this case... Murray should have been behind bars by now...

Jacquelyn   September 27th, 2009 11:02 pm ET

Now watch people come on here saying that is where Michael is hiding.

Jacquelyn   September 27th, 2009 11:06 pm ET

Thank you, Jermaine for keeping Michael's legacy alive. May the Jackson Family continue to receive blessings.

spirit   September 27th, 2009 11:06 pm ET

That was such a painful article that you posted regarding Michael... It really hurts to think of the things that he had to go through only coz he was way too honest, courageous & good a human being...

Anne   September 27th, 2009 11:06 pm ET

I wish he was hiding there. I wish he never left there.

spirit   September 27th, 2009 11:10 pm ET

& Jermain
we know that Michael loved Ireland... I watched that clip when MJ recorded in Ireland with of the Black Eyed Peas, and Billy Bush interviewed him on location... Gosh! he looked so good & relaxed after going through that tremendous ordeal...
I wish he should have stayed there longer & kept working on his new plans... The place suited his temperament-sedate, tranquil & most importantly beautiful-
Miss you Michael sooooooo much...
God bless!

spirit   September 27th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

Same here Anne...I wish he never left Ireland...

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 11:14 pm ET

@Jacquelyn - why did you spill the beans on the hiding spot? 🙂 Now we have to move him...


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 27th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

LOL Lori...please don't encourage the conspiracy theorists. 🙂


Sandy-Houston   September 27th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

Then CM article was originally from The New York Times...just an FYI.

Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

I had my doubts about Jermaine for awhile, sadly I was hearing negative comments about him on these blogs and they had inflluenced my thinking. When Jermaine first did that interview with Larry , I felt he was genuine. It is so obvious from this interview, that Jermaine is the best ambassador and protector of Michael's true character and spirit. I support Jermaine all the way. His love , adoration and understanding of Michael shines through here. I hope he keeps on doing interviews forever. Wish and his family would eventually write a book, then the mainstream public will get to read about Michael's real purpose.. Thanks Jermaine

Jacquelyn   September 27th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

Lol. 🙂

Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

Gigi–Where does Michael's nephew and Janet speak. Is there an interview on here somewhere?

pat davis   September 27th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Michael and Jermaine always had a bond. They were the lead singers when the group originated as The Jackson Five. Michael was of course the #1 lead singer, but Jermaine would come in also as a lead in most of their early songs.

To see his pain just brought those sad feelings back all over again. They really had it out to destroy Michael and they did. Michael's pain was so severe. What a cruel, cruel world we live in.

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 27th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

@Nicole, sorry. I will now deny the previous statement, by explaining that it was a hoax and that no one is to believe it. (wink) (wink) . In the meantime, I will be checking out Stockholm.


Victoria J   September 27th, 2009 11:39 pm ET

@anne, where was this article published and who was the author? It is sickening what they did to Michael. But even worse to me was how the media locked in on this the first few days after his death. All the media outlets brought up the charges as if that would be his legacy, even questioning what his legacy would be. What? Have you heard his music, have you seen him dance, have you seen him perform, have you looked at the percentage of his earnings that go to charitable causes and his fans could continue the list? Good grief..and by the way, is there some way one of you computer experts on these blogs can get up a list to send these outlets to stop calling Michael Jacko. I cannot stand that. It seems to me the media helps to teach our children how to name call and bully and they actually get away with it!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 27th, 2009 11:41 pm ET

Lori - Oh my goodness...LOL...not Stockholm, and definitely not Dublin.


Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:42 pm ET

Sandy-Houston–Thank-you for the link to the Houston article. Just because he was a capable doctor, doesn't mean he was a decent person. I have no respect for an adulterer ( he's a dr. shouldn't he know about safe sex?), who doesn't support his children, and owes money for his business and house. I think all of his problems and lack of morals, affected his ability. He screwed up big time and will pay the price.!

Jessica   September 27th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

Michael's music is still theBEST. I was at a dance club last night. Request ed any MJ music. Billie Jean came on and the dance floor was full, everyone having a blast. Then on came the newer hip/hop stuff and rap, and way fewer people danced.

Barbara   September 27th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

That's true Jessica-Michael's music fills the dance floor every single time!

Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 12:04 am ET

Agreed. And maybe so, maybe not, if he was a capable doctor. They haven't talked to everyone!

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 12:13 am ET

@Nicole - how about Reykjavik?


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:16 am ET

Once again the media is painting a false picture to continue to make Michael Jackson look bad. By praising Conrad Murray they are trying to portray him as the victim instead of Michael. They are using reversed psychology. Instead of attacking Michael they commend Murray as if he's this respected doctor among his piers. It's all still a bunch of crap! He's responsible for the death of Michael Jackson!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 28th, 2009 12:25 am ET

Lori - Now you lost me there...Elvis has left the room. Never heard of it...LOL...


Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Good night all. It's 11:30pm here. Wish we could all sit together in the theater to watch Michael!

Victoria J   September 28th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Pat, I agree. The doctor/s have to pay. They are ultimately the ones who are responsible for having given Michael the drugs. They could have walked away, said no...Dr. Murray administered a drug that should only be given in a hospital, controlled setting and he left the patient alone. He is morally corrupt and his personal life only corroborates this. I am praying that this investigation will be thorough and will bring justice to Michael.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 28th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Good night, Sandy.


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 1:02 am ET

GENE!! Where are you? Come back!

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 1:38 am ET

I just wish someone would find him...


Toni   September 28th, 2009 1:58 am ET

Emmy Lalonde, Belgium.   September 28th, 2009 2:07 am ET

Jessica   September 28th, 2009 2:59 am ET

You all need to see this interview. Go to youtube and type in Michael Jackson changes history rare interview 1995. It's when Scream was nominated for 11 mtv awards and HIStory was just released . Bill Bellamy is the interview.

Letta   September 28th, 2009 3:44 am ET

,JERMAINE, may be in ireland, but it would be better if Michael was there himself. Jermaine, is trying find something not sure what it is.

Mila   September 28th, 2009 3:46 am ET

hmm – last week The Informer said he had a TV interview coming the next week and Jermaine's had an interview this week .... this could be more than a coincidence.

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 3:57 am ET

I think The Informer said that he/she had a TV interview the next week when The Informer was here on September 10th, making the interview around the middle of the month...if The Informer is to be believed.


Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 4:20 am ET

Lori,this is not the next wick.

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 4:24 am ET

This is 2 and half wick later.Qestion,whenn thay made the interview.It was lost night?

Mila   September 28th, 2009 4:44 am ET

Lori, you're right – his post was on 10th.

It seems that the interview with Ryan Tubridy was on 11th Sept – found an article in the Evening Herald from 9/12 which had the full content of the interview.
The show was aired on 25th Sept.

mariau   September 28th, 2009 5:29 am ET

Good Morning Everyone 🙂 🙂

Dearest Larry King,
i want to thank you for giving us new blog, Larry You're the best and we will continue to support your show.
May God bless you always.


Brigida, Italy   September 28th, 2009 6:18 am ET

Why do I see this only now when I have to leave for work...
Will read and watch the video in the evening (here) but I think, Jermain is the one who feels more pain because of some action in the past we know damaging his brother. Hope, he really could clear this with him in time.
See you later my friends 🙂

spirit   September 28th, 2009 6:38 am ET

Hi mariau!
Are you there?

mariau   September 28th, 2009 6:44 am ET

Michael Jackson was a vulnerable man because of he was surrounded by vulnerable Morons and vultures media... He was used and betrayed by desperate friends who wants to earn his fame and popularity.. His life became vulnerable because he was a victim of extortion.. Michael had been fooled by his extortionist friends.. His life became vulnerable because of Filthy media and monster friends..

Michael Jackson his life was a tragic.. because of those monsters friends.. a self- interest friends hanging around with him to seek fame and popularity.. He was used.. He was framed up and He was set up.

Michael Jackson was a human being.. with human nature.. committed sins, mistakes, failure and strugle life.. He was like us.. sometimes his weak, strong, confused, desperate, anxious... a Human nature when we called it.. He had moods, attitude and secrets like anyone of us.. He was angry, happy, upset and lonely.. like anyone us. He was a Human being...

Michael had been judged by his appearance, by his child like and being innocent, they ridiculed him as a Peter Pan like...

what's wrong with you people??? Look at yourself on the mirror before you judge and ridicule Michael.. Maybe you're worst than him, Maybe you're worst the way you judge him...

Look at you.. look at your life...

Did you ever give a penny to those homeless people outside your door???

Did you ever give your hand to those childrens needs help?

Did you ever say I love you to your children or your family???

Did you not ever made mistakes in your life???

Before you judge Michael for any wrong doings, judge yourself... look around ...

spirit   September 28th, 2009 6:46 am ET

that was so touching... & so true!

mariau   September 28th, 2009 6:48 am ET

hi spirit – how are you today? 🙂 🙂 hope everythings fine 🙂 🙂

mariau   September 28th, 2009 7:06 am ET

Jermain, thank you for your words and we want you to know that we are always here for your brother.. we love him as a family.. he will live foreever in our hearts.

Jermain- just open your eyes widely to those people who never stops destroying your brother. you must do something to stop those morons and vultures friends of your brother..

MaryRM   September 28th, 2009 7:38 am ET

mariau 6:44 am ET

You are absolutely right – what have any of those vultures done for anyone except themselves? Nothing. Nothing Nothing Nothing. Nothing

mariau   September 28th, 2009 8:01 am ET

Hi Mariau,

Your words spoke volumes! It's so true, who has the right to judge when we are all human beings that experience the same ups and downs in life. Michael was this mega superstar, but still a human being with feelings just like the rest of us. Your words made me cry. Very well spoken!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 28th, 2009 10:23 am ET

Good morning, everyone. Just dropping in briefly.
An interesting article from USA Today.

New books (even paper dolls) will mirror Michael Jackson
By Deirdre Donahue, USA TODAY

The King of Pop lives on in the hearts of publishers who are releasing a batch of new Michael Jackson books this fall.

Just out with a 400,000 first printing: The Michael Jackson Tapes: A Tragic Icon Reveals His Soul in Intimate Conversation by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Vanguard Press, $25.95). Boteach hosts the TLC show Shalom in the Home.

The New Jersey rabbi met Jackson in March 1999 through entertainer Uri Geller. The book is an annotated collection of Boteach's 30 hours of taped interviews with Jackson conducted from August 2000 to April 2001.

Topics include God, Jackson's unhappy childhood and Boteach's belief that although Jackson was heterosexual, his attitudes toward women were warped by his early exposure to strippers at clubs where the Jackson 5 performed.

Boteach writes that he and Jackson planned to write a book together but became estranged in 2001 after Jackson rejected the rabbi's advice to normalize his lifestyle — the odd hours, the drugs, the isolation.

The young and vibrant star is on display in Michael Jackson: Before He Was King by Todd Gray (Chronicle Books, $29.95), in stores Nov. 6 with a first printing of 50,000. Now a professor of art and photography at California State University-Long Beach, Gray began shooting Jackson in 1974 and worked as his personal photographer from 1979 through 1983. The book presents more than 100 photos.

Back then, Gray says, "he (Jackson) was a really joyful person, full of life and so creative. This was a period before all the affectation started. It's poignant."

Also coming up Michael Jackson: Paper Dolls, from Dover Publications, that is for adult collectors, not children, says company president Chris Kuppig.

Since the singer's death in June, Jackson book sales have not been stellar.

• Ian Halperin's exposéUnmasked, about Jackson's last years, did best. It peaked at No. 29 on USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list, spending four weeks in the top 150.

• Triumph Books' photo tribute Michael Jackson hit No. 39 and spent three weeks in the top 150.

• J. Randy Taraborrelli's updated bio Michael Jackson peaked at No. 118.

"What does it take for someone to say, 'I've got to look at this book'?" asks Carol Fitzgerald, president of She says publishers are struggling to figure out how to create compelling material for readers who have instant access to news.

Jackson's best-selling 1988 autobiography Moonwalk is being reissued by Crown on Oct. 13 with a new introduction by Berry Gordy, who describes Jackson as The Greatest Entertainer That Ever Lived, and an afterword by Shaye Areheart. It has a 100,000 first printing.

The 1988 edition sold almost half a million copies. Now publisher of Harmony Books, Areheart worked closely with Jackson and his original editor, Jacqueline Onassis.



Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 10:27 am ET

Hi Nicole how are you doing/ Feeling Better?
Thanks for the post very interesting.
Every one is trying to make a buck off Michael

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 10:35 am ET

Hi Nicole-you check out Jacquelyn's blog-tonight

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 28th, 2009 10:36 am ET

Hey Patty - I agree, unfortunatel, folks are using Michael as a money-making tool, even post-mortem.

Oh, and yes, I'm feeling 100% better. Thanks for asking! 🙂

Back just in time for one of my favorite topics (Jermaine, next to Michael, of course). I know, I'm hopeless, but I'm quite fond of Jermaine. :D)

Well, anyhoo...I'm off to another busy Monday. Will blog more later this evening. Take care!


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   September 28th, 2009 10:39 am ET

Hey Linda, long time, no chat! I'll try my best. 🙂

Until then, take care!!


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 10:46 am ET

Have a good day Nicole.

Linda I responded back to you earlier. I'm just glad we finally have a response. Must have sent the other emails to the wrong people but that's ok we have an answer now.

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 10:53 am ET

Jermaine said something in this interview that brilliantly sums up a mantra for the twisted – make-a-buck industry folks and media. He said:


THis should be everyone's slogan response to Dimond, Halperin, Boteach, Tiborelli, wacko jacko tabloids, etc., etc. If ever you write in or comment on these kinds of postings and stories, sign it with " YOU CAN'T FOOL THE FANS " under your name. Imagine the impact if they see this regularly. Perhaps a massive united campaign will send the message.

Well said Jermaine! PEACE.

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 11:03 am ET

Hi Diane,

Mariau–did you get my emails re: Las Vegas Event

I love it Diane. How are you today?


lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 11:05 am ET

I love it


Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 11:06 am ET

Hi Patty and Linda – I'm great!

Linda – I'll have to check. I just got on. Will let you know.

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 11:09 am ET

I think one of the best tributes to Michael would be another "We Are The World" collaboration like the first one. I believe he would want proceeds and honors go to children of the world rather than his own legacy. JMO.

Luda   September 28th, 2009 11:09 am ET

Hello everyone!

I found this comment on another site, didn't someone here said a bodyguard said Michael had a secret girlfriend?? Could this lady be?
here's the comment:

" I saw Michael Jackson in Crescent Shopping Center in Limerick, Ireland. That was a the end of 2006. He was with his mask on face, he was grabbing by the hand very tall lady and four of his bodyguards was around them. I'm sure that it was Michael. Lot of people thought the same. People was walking after them. Talking to each other about that. He was in many places in Ireland travelling, visiting, shopping."

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 11:14 am ET

Linda –

Didn't get anythiong from you. When did you send it? From Jax chat or where?

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 11:15 am ET

Luda and All –

Uh oh. Now I am busted! That was ME with MJ in Ireland. LOL

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:17 am ET

LOL Diane. Busted!


Luda   September 28th, 2009 11:20 am ET


Lucky girl!! LOL

Anne   September 28th, 2009 11:20 am ET

MJ was a sweet, innocent, childlike, fragile, sensitive man who was totally vulnerable to exploitation by everyone around him.

I think the message in the Rabbi's book was trying to say that MJ was horribly depressed over being abused/exploited by his father and the false accusations in 1993. This emotional pain lead to prescription drug use.

I would like Jermaine to develop a stronger and more coherent defense of his brother against those accusations. He needs a list of talking points that he should make sure to say at every single interview he conducts.He needs to expose the lies every chance he gets. He has the greatest chance to help get Michael's message out there.

Luda   September 28th, 2009 11:23 am ET

According to the "Mirror UK", the girlfriend would be the nanny... but the bodyguard seems to say she was very controlling.....


She is said to have wielded so much power in the Jackson household that she controlled all access to the singer – even deciding which family members could speak to him.

Three years ago she reportedly barred Michael’s dad Joe from the family mansion.

A year later it was rumoured the couple had secretly married but this was denied by Grace, who is still legally married to first husband Stacey Adair.

Luda   September 28th, 2009 11:25 am ET

Forgot to say, they said Grace was introduced to Mike by Tohme Tohme....


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 11:25 am ET


Good Stuff. I've been searching bookstores for Moonwalk since Michael passed away and haven't had any success. I purchased the book in the 1988 when first released. In 1998 it was destroyed in a fire along with ALL of my Michael Jackson souveniers (t-shirts, programs, buttons, even ticket stubs) that I purchased from concerts I attended. So this (Moonwalk) is really good news.

I advise everyone do not purchase these other so called biography's of Michael Jackson. Moonwalk is HIS autobiography, written in HIS own words! It an excellent reading, and the pictures are FABULOUS! This book will definately be worth the wait!

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:28 am ET

Pat you can pre order the book on as well

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:31 am ET

Linda I just sent you something. Looks interesting

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 11:31 am ET


I agree, Jermaine has had several interviews since Michael's death and although he expresses his mourning openly, he seems to get lost for words when he's asked, what really happened to Michael. I think he's afraid of saying something incriminating, but at the same time if he had a list of things that he specifically wanted to comment on he would be more prepared to answer the questions presented.

I definitely Agree-I am waitng for My copy of Moonwalker--not buying any of that garbage.

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 11:38 am ET

Thank you Patty!

Does any know anything about Michael's movie Moonwalker. I've been seaching for that to, which was also lost in the fire.

I've been told that Moonwalker no longer exist to the public because of something that has to do with Michael not owning the rights. Does anyone have any information about that?

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 11:39 am ET

It is welovemichaeljosephjackson dot com

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:40 am ET

Pat I just purchase moonwalker the DVD off of ebay. I love it. There are a couple people still selling copies of it but I don't know for how long

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 11:41 am ET

Snuggy-we usually get on jax site around 8PM in the evening

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 11:42 am ET

Linda and Pat I am not buying any of that junk. Boycotting it all I am..
I am also waiting for my copy of Moonwalker.

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 11:52 am ET

Linda & Pat,

I'll probably end up purchasing these items at a store, I had a bad experience purchasing online! But please continue to keep us informed on anything new that has to do with Michael. Just out of curiosity Patty, what is Moonwalker's cost on ebay and is it brand new?

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 11:52 am ET

Hi All!
I finaly could woch the video.Its so heartbrakeing.I realy dont think,Jermaine is acting...

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 11:54 am ET

Pat,try to finde on torrents!

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

Hi Stu–how are you doing

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 12:10 pm ET


I don't think Jermaine is acting either-His heartbreak is real-you can't fake something like that unless you are a professiona actor-and Jermaine is not an actor-It's not that easy to fake that kind of emotion even if ou are a professional actor and I speak for experience.

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 12:11 pm ET

Hello Everyone-

It's refreshing and reassuring that our endless dedication to Michael is still going strong- and certainly will get stronger in the future.

@Letta: 3:44 a.m. comment-
Jermaine is looking for peace. And forgiveness.


lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 12:12 pm ET

Hi mourningmj

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 12:17 pm ET

@Lindafromnewyork 12:10 comment

I completely agree with you, Linda. Jermaine, like all of us who loved MJ, is incapable of staging the grief and anguish he has suffered and will continue to remain wounded until he is with Michael once again. Jermaine was a bully to Michael for a long time, but eventually, they both relented and each forgave one another, however, I'm not quite convinced Jermaine forgave himself for the way he treated Michael after the trial. I think we should let Jermaine off the hook; well, I think Jermaine should let himself off the hook. Michael would have wanted it that way. MLJ always has, always will xoxo

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 12:17 pm ET


Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 12:18 pm ET

What is Torrents?

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

Jermaine is not The Informer. Last I saw, The Informer and *mj* are trying to lead people down the path that MJ is still alive. Disrespectful.

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

MourningMJ,you cant teas me.I know,what it is.Yoh H Michael Jackson. 😀

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 12:24 pm ET

Pat,you never download?I dont know,what torrents you use in you contry.I have hungarian torrents.Any torrent where you can got movies.

Lisa S   September 28th, 2009 12:25 pm ET

Jermaine has lost a lot of weight. These brothers have gone through so much, since childhood.

I wished he hadnt have to come on national tv at this stage. If Tv respects him and his family they should give the family all the time they need. How disrespectful to dig into Jermaniens mourning with all those questions. I find this disguisting. I know Larry King is a close friend of Jermaine but still, he was much more respectful.

I hope this family gets all professional support they need. They have gone though so much. Whatever Michael went through in his childhood the brothers did as well. Every human being has their own story and I think the Jackson brothers have a heavy backpacker. Things that happened in their childhood affected them a lot and the passing of one brother surely opens up to a lot of memory and emotions.

I just think many of the questions were to private to ask in a live show.

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 12:25 pm ET

Stu –

It is because MourningMJ is a Severe HAG. She needs to be put in her place.

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 12:28 pm ET

Yes Diane,TI and ***mj*** is the same for sure.And this person is lier,couse whet TI said about the future,its didnt came trough.Thats why now he dont say nothing,but come up with this next idea,that Michael come here hem self,and TI was so supriced to see...I dont understand,why this is good for this person.

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:30 pm ET

I agree with you MMJ on Jermaine. I think he feels alot of quilt as well.

You are funny as hell. Love your posts

Pat yes it was still sealed. My cost was 12.49. Took 2 weeks to get here.
I have an account with ebay if you have any trouble let me know I can get it for you and send it to you.

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 12:31 pm ET

I see you didn't take your medicine today?

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 12:32 pm ET

Lisa,i agree with you.I think,this questions was so unrespectfull.Just fore money.If Jermaine crying,more peaples will woch the show...

And olso i agree,that this braders and sisters ben trough on many things togeather,and i am sure,thay love each other,even,if thay had problems.Nobody is liveing without problems.

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 12:33 pm ET

The only books I will buy are Moonwalker and the Conspiracy book by Jones Messereau. All of the others get my standard line:


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:34 pm ET

I don't understand why Jermaine is in the public eye so much lately. The whole family is still in shock, just as we are. It's only been three months, and we've seen him everywhere. Maybe his mission is to put out the word about what a great human being Michael was along with his (Michaels) many contributions.

Jermaine is doing a good job honoring Michael's name. It's just so painful to see how torn he is over his loss. It's as if he's on a mission and he's not going to stop untill someone is held accountable for Michaels death. So maybe its a good thing.

mariau   September 28th, 2009 12:36 pm ET

Helloooo Everyone to Linda/Patty/stu/Dianne/ miss you all.. sorry too busy today just drop by here to say Hi 🙂 🙂 🙂
linda- yes..
Patty- thanks.. my heart spoke so much for Michael 🙂
stu- how are you?

keep moving guys.. love you all and God bless 🙂 🙂 🙂

Diane in Minneapolis   September 28th, 2009 12:37 pm ET

Linda – LOL

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 12:37 pm ET

@**Diane (Art Van Delay)- you are a riot! Poor, Stu- probably doesn't even know what a hag is! Stu- Diane and I are major MJ hags. Come into the chatroom tonight, you will see what we are speaking of! #$79)((09849028

@**Stu- Jermaine is NOT the informer. He would never disrespect Michael that way, coming into blog rooms dropping ridiculous inuendos and speculation. Besides- the Informer is a female.
Also Su- you are kind of getting closer, but not there yet. Keep working on IHMJ XOXO HLMM!

@**Lisa- I agree and support your comment, Lisa. Jermaine has lost alot of weight and sounded grief stricken. I actually am convinced that as time goes on, it is getting more difficult for Jermaine. Now, he can take a step back and say "wait, Michael really ISN'T here". I also would cosign to the idea that Jermaine enjoys interviews because they help him heal. It's no secret that many journalists globally often use manipulation tactics to gain a more interesting interview; I was never satisfied in believing that Jermaine would fold under the pressure to sell Michael out. I believe he is strongly try to recapture the relationship they once had; it's almost sad in a way to think Jermaine is stuck and having a hard time letting go- but... then again- aren't we all? IHMJ xoxo HLMM

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 12:38 pm ET

Good morning ladies 🙂

Still no sign of our main man Gene? Gene come on back now, ya'hear!! 🙂

Stu – I do not think that **mj** and The Informer are one and the same. But I think they are both some kind of marketing ploy.

My girls, IHYA and of course ILYM and don't forget the code of the day.


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:38 pm ET

Mariau your heart speaks very loud for Michael. I see you recieved the letter from Pepper.
I also posted a new petition yesterday

Hi Mariau!Have a good work girl!

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:39 pm ET


Thank You So Much! I will keep that in mind! I Love This Blog!

Michael has bought us all together, and it just a beautiful thing!

lindafromnewyork   September 28th, 2009 12:39 pm ET

I think you are right on with your observation. I agree

Jermaine needs to keep with his mission. It is not hurting Michael in anyway, as a matter of fact it might give people a new insight into Michael and the wonderful human being that he was and how he did not deserve to be treated the way he was.

Lisa S   September 28th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

Stu,Hungary September 28th, 2009 12:32 pm ET

Yes, that is very important to remember. I mean, we all talk about what Michael went through in his childhood but the rest of the borthers and sisters went through it as well. Whether is was abuse, parents fights, hard work riviality, etc, we will never know but it has affected them all in different ways, that is very visible. It was interesting to hear Jermaine saying that if he knew what he knows today, he would never have gone into show buisness. "Never".

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

@Patty A.- thank you!

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

For sure Pat keep me posted. If you are on FB please add me. Can keep in touch there as well.

This is Michaels love spreading all around.... His spirit is strong!!!

Lori LOL Yoda's cool me too off and on all day I AM heehee

Lisa S   September 28th, 2009 12:44 pm ET

Also, do reporters not do any research these days? I mean, with internet and you tube it seems wasting time asking the same questions as reporters and tv-show hosts asked months ago. He more or less asked exactly the same questions as Larry King and Smokey asked in july/august. People are using internet and people are capable of tuning in Larry King Live. It would have been a better use of the time, asking new questions or other type of questions. If they couldnt think of any more questions or have anything aditional to ask,I dont see the point with inviting Jeremaine to the show in the first place. :-S

what's up with lex?

Patty – im just upset because they said This is it movie will be shown all around the glove... and looking all over net to find out..

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 12:57 pm ET


Those were chilling words from Jermaine. Just think if they never became famous Michael Jackson would never had to endure the torture that these evil beings put him through. He would have never suffered....he would still be alive today. It's so heartbreaking, and yes the other siblings were also subject to the abuse of Joe Jackson.

Think about Mrs. Jackson, if Joe was touring with Michael and his brothers and they were performing in night clubs and strip clubs think about the infedility they must of witnessed in their own father! Michael admitted being in hotel rooms while his brothers had girls in bed right next to him. Can you imagine what Joe Jackson was doing while away from his wife! When you see them together this women looks as if she HATES him! She hardly even acknowledges him! I think the entire Jackson family suffered severely by the dominance of Joe Jackson.

FYI The email address of the Sun is

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 2:02 pm ET

sarah... No ... What is going on with sun... Don't tell me... more bad stuff about Michael... I notice that the Tabloids ain't talking about Michael hardly anymore.... all the work we did paid off..

Maria G   September 28th, 2009 2:03 pm ET

I know that all this has been settled and done. But I have to say that hearing Michael's tapes, he stated that he wanted to be buried around children that he needed their spirit. I don't think he meant buried along side children but surrounded by children like when Neverland was so full of children and laughter. I do understand the families choice because of security purposes but it sounded like he did not want to be alone. I just wish he was somewhere where there is still laughter and innocence. But I am also glad that he is at peace.


kiki   September 28th, 2009 2:14 pm ET

Thank you sarah. I will check about the site.

VICKI   September 28th, 2009 2:22 pm ET

This will come up as Vicki, but I am the Victoria from yesterday...I had asked the question yesterday where to go to get these people to stop calling him Jacko. Thanks to those that are addressing this. Also go to the nydailynews which originally ran the article on Michael's This Is It found below on LKL blog and tell them you do not like that they used Jacko in their article, too. He's least respect the man and the fact that he did not want to be called this.

sarah   September 28th, 2009 2:23 pm ET

@ mary u from Ohio its was last week, when those tapes story came out, obviously tabloids (The Sun) twisted the story coz that what they do ..(only if so called friends of Mike should keep their mouth shut ) .i know its really is heart breaking to us fans ....but in the end tabloids are tabloids , nothing more....

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 2:27 pm ET


I already sent The Sun an email about their reporters and that Jacko crap. I don't think they want to hear from me again!

Stu,Hungary   September 28th, 2009 2:33 pm ET

Mariau,here olso no promotion fo the movie.I think,peaples dont even know about it.

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 2:40 pm ET

figures..... He is the only one i know that they like to twist his words & meaning.....Today i was thinking about the Tapes.. what he said.... Rabbi wanted his feeling... Michael telling him the public... .To me he was just telling what he felt... he laugh to at different answers telling what he felt.... His feelings from deep inside.......He did it then... I wonder if he would tell his deep feeling to the world again???
.... the way the world is today./....MJ think about it first....
Michael is the only one the Media. and so called friends, Tabloids.. Make more gossip out of his words and twist then....
Michael could say the truth... the Sky is Blue.... & Cause Michael said it .... Media would deny it.. or... twist it some how... saying he's colored blind.... anything....

I do wonder if it is because he is a successful Black Man

Larry King is on the other Blog... Larry himself......

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 2:52 pm ET

Mary U,

That's exactly why they treated Michael the way they did because he was a successful black man.

And your right if Michael said the sky was blue the media would say No it's not it's Gray! I despise them!

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

I heard that Michael colasped on stage... so is that true????

mariau   September 28th, 2009 3:09 pm ET

Sarah/ Patty – yes i'm very lucky to meet MJ, he was the most humble man you could ever imagined.. He was down to earth person and never act like he was a superstar or big celebrity.. His smile and his eyes if you saw him it's like his speaking to my soul.. i feel mesmerized .. you just want to look at him and stare him continously..
i couldn't believe the lies.. the media lies.. He was very kind and generous.. Patty you're right a memories that i can treasure forever.. to meet the most humble and generous man on Earth..

He came here and Honored .. He was love by so many people around the world.. and noone could take that from Him.. no matter what they say.. He will always loved by billion of fans..

Brigida, Italy   September 28th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

Diane in Minneapolis
I think one of the best tributes to Michael would be another "We Are The World"
do you remember the "what more can I give"? Again all his friends singing for charity but the song was not released by Sony..
Perhaps now is the moment?

During the fashion-week in Milan Versace dedicated a new bags collection for spring/summer 2010 each with a famous song of Michael written on.
Tributes from all countries and sites are still going on, hopefully never stop! So perhaps also the media get it that Michael will be always in our hearts and minds... whatever they try to avoid this.
We, all together with love, will win this "war" and in the end I bet we will see better news and even some apologizing ^___^

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

Something is definately wrong with Diane Demond. That woman needs some counsiling. I wonder what happended in her childhood thats got her so messed up? Hey, maybe SHE was molested that would explain why she was so determined to accuse Michael of it! Something turned her into a cold hearted #$%@&!

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 3:26 pm ET

Did Michael collapse onstage? If he did when and where?

I know quite a few years ago Janet collapsed of stage. It was from exhaustion and dehydration. She was hospitalized, she took a few days off and then continued with her tour.

mariau   September 28th, 2009 3:27 pm ET

Pat Davis- I absolutely agree with you... she need Psychiatrist.. urgent..
i remember here during JUNE 13, 2005 when Michael was vindicated prove not guilty on all accounts.. the way she said it.. not guilty, not guilty, 10 times not guilty.. she looks like she wanted to cry so loud.. and disappeared.. she was excited that she herself 100% think that Michael would go to jail...
she said "I need to finish my unfinished job" what do you think about that?
she sounds very obsessed to Michael.. she need a Doctor..

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 3:41 pm ET

I was reading some of your posts- you're a riot! Regarding Diane Demon, she needs a brain transplant and a personality transplant and since neither one of those are possible, I'm under the impression that not only myself but all MJ fans and even non-MJ fans identify her as a huge void; she a big blank space: __________.
Michael did faint on stage in December of 1995 while rehearsing for an HBO special (was suppose to be the biggest in HBO history), however, it eventually was cancelled because MJ's doctors restricted him from continued rehearsals and physical activitiy. The "official" medical diagnosis was in the nature of deydration and some defect with his ribs. He complained of shortness of breath and chest pains. But, Lisa P. (whom he was married at the time) went on to say after their divorce that it was a massive anxiety attack due to post pressure from the 1993 allegations in conjunction with major "family problems" with his parents and siblings (but she did not disclose what the nature of the family problems were, but I'm sure we can all take a guess). Of course we all know that Michael was innocent of everything, however, Diane Demon is certainly guilty without a reasonable doubt in driving Michael into a perpetual state of anguish and misery. I wonder how she sleeps at night knowing the blood of Michael Jackson is on her hands? IHMJ xoxo HLMM

"A lot of celebrities have noticed the success of Muhamed, including Michael Jackson.

Sheikh: I am proud to call him my friend. He is a very humble person.

Answering Muhamed's invitation, Michael attended the 2005 Desert Challenge Awards.

Sheikh: He never said no. Sometimes i meet celebrities, who far not as famous as he is, and they immediately say no, or ask how much I'd pay if they come. But not Michael. He just said, yes Muhamed, this is a sport, and i trust in you.

Muhamed's rich family is involved in the biggest building constructions in Dubai. The most fascinating is the one which is 4km far from the shores. A set of artificial islands, called 'The World'. From above, it looks like the map of the Earth. The price of an island is around 10 to 40 million us dollars. Rumors say, Rod Stuart payed 25 million for 'England'. Muhamend wants to sell more Islands to other celebrities.

Sheikh: Yes, I try to convience Michael Jackson a while ago, to buy one. And I won't leave him alone, until he says yes."

Maria G   September 28th, 2009 4:09 pm ET

Did you know that Michael was also known as "Prince Michael Jackson Amalaman Anoh" He was crowned as "King In Waiting" in a village in Krindjabo. They were to name a successor to Prince Michael Jackson Amalaman Anoh after his passing . So the name The King of Pop, is his title but he was really Royality !!

Allure   September 28th, 2009 4:09 pm ET

u think so? I'm not that convinced because asking for forgiveness means to admit that she was wrong. We gonna see snow in summer before that happens 🙂

Mariau I don't understand it either. It's unreal how he was treated here.

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 4:50 pm ET


I reviewed the interview again in its entirety; both pieces. Jermaine doesn't know how Michael died? Should we tell him? (because we all know). Jermaine's adoration for Michael is so genuine and he misses Michael incredibly. Denial is ugly, Jermaine. It gets many people in trouble- (like your little brother). Jermaine would heal faster if he accepted what he knew all along; his heart just won't let his soul confirm it.

@ Lex- I like your idea of hanging out in front of Demon's house signing MJ songs; that's brilliant. We should also forward all Michael Jackson fan mail to her house too.

Patty Anderson, I think Michael was treated unfairly in the U.S. because a lot of people take tabloids as truth. And the worst the story was the worst Michael was treated. I never bought into the tabloid fodder and now that his tapes were released people will see how wrong the tabloids represented him.

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 5:01 pm ET

I hope you are right MariaG or turn it into something else as they always did/do.

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 5:08 pm ET

I haven't heard the tapes, but is there any chance Michael was being recorded without being aware ? The tapes could have been edited afterwards to make it sound more like an interview.

lex   September 28th, 2009 5:16 pm ET

@Nicole – again – you are on the blog on the daytime...are you on vacation?? 🙂


MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 5:20 pm ET

@ PATTY ANDERSON- Thank you....

@ Diane, my #1 h-a-g in Minn: I just read that article and you make a great point about Michael's privacy. Why did the Rabbi release these tapes? Maybe Dateline had the highest bid? Maybe the good Rabbi was in desperate need of a gravy train. If it was indeed, Michael's intentions to have the world listen in on some very personal intimate conversations, then I will remove my guilt from listening to them, because I did. However, if the relationship was severed in 2000 (or around that time) with the good rabbi, then I am puzzled why Micahel did not revoke his consent to "release the tapes"? More questions than answers: Tapes were released 10 years after they were recorded but more importantly, three months to the day of his demise? Michael did not revoke his consent to release the tapes after they severed their "spiritual relationship?" Michael has everyone in the world sign confidentiality agreeements, including his siblings when he described his Dangerous tour to them. And the $$ from the proceeds are going "Charity"? Yep, the ink won't even have a chance to dry before that profit check hits the ground running. Privacy? I wish the one time that Michael wasn't allowed any privacy was on 6/25/09- Don't worry Mr. Murray- you don't have to keep Mr. Jackson's secret anymore. You gave him all the privacy in the world, didn't you? I hope they give you enough privacy in prison, Dr. Conman, when you wake up with a big you-know-what in your you-know-what. IHMJ XOXO HLMM

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 5:23 pm ET

I'm suspicious because the tapes would have been released sooner if michael had wanted to use them in any way.

Hope it's not too far to travel to Germany. Is it not on in Switzerland ?

pat davis   September 28th, 2009 5:36 pm ET

Mourning MJ,

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 5:38 pm ET

Mourning MJ
Do we know for definite that there is a signed confidentiality agreement & if there is one could it be fake ?

I read about a meeting between Michael & ?(name) & the agreement drawn up by Michael's team before the interview was rediculous. It said that Michael had to be referred to as The King as well as many other odd requests which i'm sure Michael didn't know about.

The team were obviously playing a joke behind Michael's back. To me, paperwork & agreements were not in safe hands & I have a picture of Michael being in the hands of some unscrupulous people.

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 5:52 pm ET

Lori- Pepsi commercial. Again, released when Michael's not here to argue about it.

Judie & Mary
When are you going to see T I I ?

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 5:53 pm ET

My understanding was that Michael received control of the Pepsi footage as part of the settlement after the accident, and that he never wanted in released. And then it mysteriously appears shortly after his death....... I just think that the timing of that, and of other bits of information that appears to be leaked to the media is interesting...
It all seems to contrived to be merely random coincidence

I wish Gene would come back and get this all sorted out for us. 🙂
Miss you Gene.


pat davis   September 28th, 2009 5:55 pm ET

As far as the tapes, if Michael wanted them published why wasn't that said on the tapes. Everything esle was discussed, the beatings, dating, Madonna....If there were really plans to have those recordings published it would have been spoken of on tape.

Michael was a business man, he was very smart. Those recorded conversations were supposed to be confidential, or else Michael would have stated that in the recordings.

The rabbi doesn't have Michael saying anything about a book because their was no book discussed! Those recordings were private conversations.

The rabbi, Sneddon, Diane Demon, Nancy Disgrace and all the other vultures are all going to hell! And when they do Michael's going to be looking down on them laughing from the Heavens, with his BEAUTIFUL smile saying, "Whose got the last laugh now"!

Allure   September 28th, 2009 5:55 pm ET

MourningMJ   September 28th, 2009 5:56 pm ET

@PATTY ANDERSON- You are a riot with a very serious side, too. Yes, I definately concur we share the same views.

@LORI– Yes, I will be in Jax tonight. I've been there everynight since I joined last week- Most times, I don't know if I should laugh or cry!

@JUDIE- You must get the tickets- it's only "scheduled" for 2 weeks- we will be yappin' in Jax all about it and you know we won't keep our mouths closed! (unless you-know-who may be talking- but you may not know-who but I know who so if you observe you'll see when I stay quiet).

@LORI again- No one can confirm the release of the Pepsi tape- Someone who is now a Switzerland bank account richer though.

Judie   September 28th, 2009 6:19 pm ET

Allure thank you thank you for that article here is the best part...

Michael Jackson was the most real, honest, loving human being I've ever met. He wasn't a monster, wasn't a freak, didn't look that weird, had the gentlest of souls and cared about his fellow man. When you read the transcripts or listen to the raw audio you'll hear a man that wants to change to world and make it a better place but what he doesn't realize is, he already has and that comes to proof in death more than life.

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 6:24 pm ET

Yes it is and honestly I thought the same like u – Michael didn't know about such agreements, that's not him, he's not arrogant

chris   September 28th, 2009 6:25 pm ET

I glad that MJ found some peace and happiness in Ireland. It must be the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people. I've heard that the hospitality of the Irish has been compared to the hospitality of Newfoundlanders in Canada. You just can't beat it!

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 6:31 pm ET

Hey guys, I think that the Chuck Dakota interview was a fake. Michael's last authorized interview was with Ebony in 2007. If Dakota has proof of the interview, I am surprised he hasn't released the audio. Or sold the audio to one of the tabloid TV shows, because it would certainly be worth big bucks now–but yet no sign of it. I know that the argument will be that it is not being heard is because it is "pro" Michael...but, really who is Chuck Dakota?? If Michael were giving interviews....don't you think he'd go with someone legit?
Google for information and decide for your self.


Allure   September 28th, 2009 6:32 pm ET


yesssssss! And these words are written from a male, I mean when written from a female you could think she wrote so because she's probably interested in MJ.

Judie   September 28th, 2009 7:13 pm ET


Thanks for checking on me 🙂

I have never once thought Michael is alive.

I look at his mother & his kids faces and that says it all. 😦

Maureen (UK)   September 28th, 2009 7:15 pm ET

Well it's an awful shame if chuck Dakota is a fake cos his article was so nice !

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 7:20 pm ET

I started reading the Daniel D’Addario.... half way down i stopped.....
Like I said before... Michael couldn't say anything with the idiots picking out anything that he said.... that don't fit in to there life style....
I think Michael knew how to make Media tick...... anything he said would get them going.... Michael's smart.... he knew they would talk.... Michael is a prophet... and he probably could make Hitler look at things in a different way....... But the Media... thinks... What is wrong with this man... Give Michael credit.... at least Michael has Hope.....What do you have Media... oh ya.... Negativity

Hi everyone,

If you're interested you can watch the Michael Jackson Tribute, that Londell McMillan gave on Saturday at the Congressional Black on youtube. I just got finished watching it, it's about 2 hrs long. I found it very interesting and informative. There were several different speakers on the panel. If you would like to watch the video you can go to the Congressional Black Caucus website and click on the ALC'09 link and on the right hand side there is a sub menu. Click on ALC 09 Video it will take you to the CBCF youtube channel, and the video is called Michael Jackson Tribute.

Congress Woman Watson from LA, California made a very important announcement in regards to the death investigation. I tried my best to transcribe what she said about the investigation, but you can watch for yourselves on the CBCF Youtube channel.

"I want you to know that that the L.A. community, the state of California and the nation are all concerned about Michael Jackson's death. In contact with meet with the family and the people who handle his career, we've all meet. I assured them that anything untoward about Michael will come out into the open. Because, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is involved in this lengthy investigation. So just know that you might be sitting there and saying what is taking so long? They are studying every intricate detail about his life and his death and what happened afterward. So just know that in a short while justice will out and justice will be done. Have Faith."

They discussed Michael's charity work, personal experience they had with Michael, the pain that Michael endured, the Media, Michael's business sense, Michael's creative work, Michael's family, the Sony Catalogue was mentioned several times. Jesse Jackson mentioned that "No artist ever in the history of music amassed the a catalog of Michael Jackson, and Michael ran his catalog. The pressure to take his catalog was immense..."

At the end a the video where was a question and answered period. A young 20 year old kid at the end of the clip asked McMillan a very very intelligent and observant question about Michael's Sony Catalogue, Tommy Mottolla his contract with Sony and the connection between that and the trumped up false charges against Michael. McMillan was very impressed by that question that young man asked. Because of the confidentiality of things McMillan tried to answer on some of the things that is already publicly known. I don't know if McMillan was still answering that question, because that was the end of the video, I would definitely like to hear what else he said in regards to that question.

Shawn Robertson anchor from Access Hollywood was on the panel spoke as well. She asked everyone to do something after she spoke. Shawn mentioned so often especially in the entertainment business, that people are now talking about is philanthropy, and people are say Michael wrote the soundtrack to our lives, and how much he meant to us. And she said that this is something we've should have been talking about before. And she said the reason that we don't talk about it, and she herself will have debates with management all the time saying let's not focus on that let's focus on this. And Shawn said that the management tells her that this is what the public wants. That's what's going to sell magazines and if it's a choice between a cover of the horrible things a person is going through or a cover that is showing the good things about a person, people are going to buy the one that has the horrible cover. And Shawn said the media is feeding off of what "They" think we the public want to hear. And she said that the more we voice how we don't want to hear that stuff, you want to hear more positive stories, you want to hear what makes a person great. The more we start saying that, the more we will start to see a reflection of that when we turn on the television. Shawn said that they think that all the public wants to hear is the bad stuff and that we're interested in nothing else. Shawn wished that Michael had heard about all the wonderful things when he was still here. She wished that Michael was still here when people started to talk about all of his philanthropy, and wished he knew how much we miss him. Shawn asked that we start letting our voices be heard, and start calling CNN, Access Hollywood, NBC, MSNBC, start calling all of our shows and say "I don't want to hear that, I'm going to turn you off if you're reporting this, or I'm not going to buy that magazine cover if your reporting that, start letting your voices be heard, so the next time people will know how much you care are about them before they're gone."

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 7:30 pm ET

Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

Go to Andrae Crouch's Facebook. There are two entries for Michael.
Andrae is an amazing Christian singer/writer and was working with Michael on some songs . Sorry I can't give the link...I'm working from my iPhone until my computer is fixed. What a pain!

MaryRM   September 28th, 2009 8:58 pm ET

chris 6:25 pm ET – I glad that MJ found some peace and happiness in Ireland. It must be the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people. I’ve heard that the hospitality of the Irish has been compared to the hospitality of Newfoundlanders in Canada. You just can’t beat it!

Interesting – The Newfoundland people are largely of Irish descent

Since the singer’s death in June, Jackson book sales have not been stellar.
• Ian Halperin’s exposé Unmasked
• J. Randy Taraborrelli’s updated bio

yes, these books are not big sellers! That is because we vote with our wallets – if we buy only positive Michael material, that is what they will publish

I love the lyrics to Privacy. one of the best lines:
‘cause you cameras can’t control, the minds of those who know
That you’ll even sell your soul just to get a story sold

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

@Californian Dweller
1) the Arvizios were Michael's PERSECUTORS not prosecuters, the prosecuter would the DA.
2)How would any of us know how they are feeling?


Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

What's that sherry the This is It Cd. You can pre order it on Amazon. I already did

Patty Anderson   September 28th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

This is a letter I’ve been emailing to several networks. I’ve also wrote to Dateline expressing my disappointment in them and Shmuley airing private conversations of Michael Jackson.

Sent this to CNN and wrote an email to Geraldo at Large. It’s basically a show idea and me voicing that I will not stand for the bias coverage against Michael. And if they continue I will not be watch their network again.

A panel discussion with Tom Mesearu, Aphrodite Jones, Geraldine Hughes, and Mary Fisher. The REAL COMPLETE TRUTH BEHIND Michael Jackson cases, exposing the CONSPIRATORS & THE EXTORTIONISTS that surrounded Michael in life and death. It is time the Media start telling the TRUTH. I will not stand for the continued bias coverage against Michael Jackson. If this continues I WILL NOT watch your network again.

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

I am disapointed that there is no new cryptic message from **mj** today. Maybe we will get a visit from The Informer to make the bloggy lively this evening.


sarah   September 28th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

i agree Lori Justice For Michael....TI , **mj** come join us ....

Californian dweller   September 28th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

they Even questioning Michael feeling on Madonna……. Michael said Shes not a nice person…. .. Michael is a Gentleman… and he wants his girl to be a lady… i guess Madonna is to forward…. So Michael’s a Gentleman and wants a Lady… Michael old fashion… He probably Holds The Car Door Open for his girl…My Kind Of Man….

Barbara   September 28th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Good evening.How are you?Thanks for the info on copyrighting. I appreciate it!


mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

Sandy-Houston.... It is good to send it to Washington... the minute they receive it..... it is protected... I write song Lyrics, Ghost hunt... send pictures... Screenwriter.. ,Disney Characters... i copyright every work i do... and it pays off.
Do it as soon A.S.P.A..

MaryRM   September 28th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

gigi – I have emailed several newspapers and tv shows to say that if they print these negative sensationalist lies i will boycott. Look at what we've already done – I am sure that with the word going out to fans not to buy or watch negative Michael propaganda has resulted in lower sales and viewers.

they only care about the money the make. show them that positive pays!

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 28th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Sandy Houston – you are welcome. You only need to be registered if you plan to bring suit for infringement.


mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Sandy-Houston.... Believe me the Media will try to steal it.....

Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

Mary U-
Thanks for the info. I will work on this tomorrow.
Did you all read the info from the Congressional Black caucus MJ tribute?Interesting info about the case.

mary u from ohio   September 28th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

The Man wearing the fedora the memorial & funeral.... On the Home Movies.....Michael said that he wears disguises so he could see what people really do and talk about...
Still no one knows who that man was....could he have desguised himself to see how people felt about him....

Maria G   September 28th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Anne, I wonder if they are. I know if they do sell it I can bet that everyone that downloaded a picture to the poster would buy one. LOL

Sandy-Houston   September 28th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Mary U-
At the funeral either Larry or Anderson Cooper said who this man with the fedora hat was but I can't remember.

jacqueline   September 28th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Hello everyone

Anne   September 29th, 2009 12:24 am ET

The movie poster is on amazon.
Something I posted on a blog called we can decide how we remember MJ. The initial poster said she would only remember him as a child.

True Believer

I will remember Michael Jackson at all phases of his life and career with equal affection and admiration. I am very proud of him and all his philanthropic works. I know that this sweet caring soul was totally innocent of those charges and was instead a child advocate who not only loved children but also animals and the planet Earth. He gave $300,000,000 to charity during his lifetime and fought AIDS, racism, social injustice, abuse of the earth etc.

Michael was an entertainer. He changed his appearance as he changed his style of music and performing. He was always beautiful. People were bigoted against him for how he dressed or looked because he was different. He had a lot of courage. He was sensitive to all the pain of the world which was too much for one human being. He was a workaholic perfectionist who gave his fans all he had to give.

vanessa   October 19th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

First who cares about the arvizos........I hope they rot....for their greed, lies, cruelty to Michael. Who cares I can only wish the worst on the family If its said that the boy is estranged from his family, should we care. Have you ever seen pictures of Michael during these times, just how sad. THE arvizos are in part reponsible for what happened. May they rot............

I love the interviews with Jermaine, how honest and caring he always is with his brother. Thats wonderful to see and also how good friends they were. Jermaine seems to be just as quiet and shy as Micheal, with such a honest soul. He's the one who cares for Michael's fans. Knowing how much his fans meant to him.
