Michael Jackson gives one last concert

Posted: 08:21 PM ET

By David Gordon News Editor via The Hoftra Chronicle

Michael-Jackson-concertThere are certain things you’ll remember for your entire life. For me, Michael Jackson’s death is one of them. I was in Times Square when the news was flashed across the signs on ABC’s studio. The world stopped. Everybody stared. Mouths dropped open. Men and women cried. The King of Pop was as dead as a door-nail, weeks before he began a concert engagement that was supposed to yet again rejuvenate his career.

Kenny Ortega, the mastermind behind the “High School Musical” franchise, poured over hours of rehearsal footage and other materials to create “Michael Jackson’s This is It,” a concert documentary that now serves as a memorial to the fallen icon, who, in his last days, according to the media, couldn’t move and looked like death warmed over.

Except that, if videos prove anything at all, he didn’t. Okay, he was a little skinny and his voice was thin in certain places, but beyond that, the man on screen was as energetic and fierce as in the days of yore. Only once does he look tired, during “Thriller,” where he also visibly lip-syncs.

Such comments make my heart beats 100 times faster (((
I saw TII 6 times, and each one was special because
Michael is the sole and unique!
I do not want to talk about death, I want to talk about life!
Michael suffered a lot, and deserves universal love!
Life of Michael deserves his imitation!
Sorry for the pathos, but this is exactly what I feel in my heart!

Kindness   November 9th, 2009 8:41 pm ET

Michael you are still with us I know))
Larry thank you for loving Michael so much! I remember in details June 25 too.. where I was, with whome I was, what I wore, what I did, how I reacted... everything... every single detail

helen   November 9th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

True, he has given his last concert but Michael is ALIVE! There is a lot more to come from Mike including another movie!

Kindness   November 9th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

agree! nice to hear that:)

Raychil   November 9th, 2009 8:49 pm ET

Great review. I am glad that folks are seeing the real Michael and not the caricature the media created or some invalid like some misguided followers have concocted.

Michael always King of Pop!

Anne   November 9th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

We are still crying 4 1/2 months later. I am very grateful for the movie This Is It. MJ was so awesome and his concerts would have been the most spectacular the world has ever seen. He was so brilliant a true musical genius and such an exciting performer. His death is a huge loss because he had so much left to give the world. He was all about love for people, animals and the planet. Michael Jackson will be in my heart forever.

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   November 9th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

His death is a blessing in disguise for his world-wide fans.
The whole world gets to see his This Is It movie.
If not Thia Is It will be his last hurrah for England only.

Love~Lives~Forever~   November 9th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

@ Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
Did you just say his death was a blessing in disguise? Please tell me you did not say that?

Michael Jackson was planning on taking this tour around the world after he was done in London. If all went well.

I take great offense to your comment, I am sorry.

Brittani   November 9th, 2009 9:04 pm ET


I left you a comment on the blog you were just on.

Rebeka Davis - Recife - Brasil   November 9th, 2009 9:06 pm ET

I remember exactly everything that day, cried a lot and spent the months of July to believe that he really had died, but now things have changed, I believe that Michael had reason to do everything, I do not know the truth but believe and trust in everything Michael was necessary.

Michael i love you forever

Brooklyn1959   November 9th, 2009 9:06 pm ET

@LLF, I second that–I would rather know for sure he was still alive & with us, but I would never see have to see him again–as long as he was happy. Having the movie is but a poor replacement for having HIM.

death will never be good (((( forgive me please
no, no, no .... maybe I'm not a strong man
because I can not talk about the death (about this death)

Patty Anderson   November 9th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

what a lovely article. So why did Michael have to suffer with such rotten articles when he was with us..... It's a da** shame it took his passing to wake people up.

Love~Lives~Forever~ I back you 100% This really isn't the place to make a comment such as that.... A blessing in disguise for his world wide fans....... SAY WHAT?????

MaryRM   November 9th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

Yes, I remember where I was when I heard Michael died, just as I remember where I was when I heard about John Lennon and Elvis.

The big difference is Michael suffered ridicule and hatred at the hands of the media for years. Suffered a virtual lynching even though he was acquitted. The media used him as a sideshow, dehumanizing without any effort at compassion or even an effort at truth.

All 3 were incredible talents who died needlessly before their time. John Lennon and Michael Jackson were both great humanitarians. But at least Lennon and Elvis were allowed dignity while they were alive, unlike Michael. if the media has any soul, perhaps they would like to do some reflection now. Or pehaps they have none. We will wait and see.

This is It – is beyond amazing. I have seen it multiple times and it just keeps getting better and better. The IMAX experience is so thrilling. It it heartbreaking to realize that Michael did not have the opportunity to perform in London, or to continue to bring his incredible musical genius and dancing to us. I miss you Michael.

I was saying that I sent you an article about "How To Save The Planet With Your Home Decor". I found it very interesting and something that everyone can do to help save the planet. 'Green' furniture may cost a little more than regular furniture but I think it will and can help us ALL in the long run.

MaryRM   November 9th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

I especially like this quote from Rob Hoffman on the mjupbeat memories page:
Once, while we were taking a break, I think we were actually watching the OJ chase on TV, there was a news program talking about him being in Europe with some little boy. I was sitting next to the guy while the news is making this crap up. He just looked at me and said "this is what I have to deal with."

MourningMJ   November 9th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Dearest Michael-

This may have been your last concert on Earth but certainly not your last. You saved your grandest performances for your Creator, without doubt. Although 50 concerts would have been nothing but pithy observations for us here on Earth and would not have left a dry eye in the house, everyone you have joined up in Heaven will have a front row seat to your aptitude as what we know is entertainment. I'm confident that all of the bells and whistles that decorated your This is It comeback will never hold a candle to the wings and trumpets of your new life. Rest in peace Sweet One, we will take it from here...

IHMJ xoxo

Hello Tinkerbell

@ Holland,
There is NO news on the investigation, as far as I know they could be gathering clues with thier handy dandy notebooks, just like Steve on Blues Clues, because there is anything going on!

Maybe we need Steve and Blue on the case, they can figure things out in 15 minutes!

Or maybe there really is not much to investigate.

Hi, Holland, no news on the investigation; this may be a good thing. There is an old expression that goes "No news is good news". This is the one and only time that Michael needs absolute perfection; there is no margin for error. Although Conrad Murray was seen walking around with one of his attorneys with a book in his hand. It's too bad no one grabbed it from his grip and hit him over the head with it. You can check out the pics on TMZ. Take care.

Ozzie   November 9th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I think Michael looked great in the movie. I would have liked to see more.
The concert's would have been phenomenal I'm sure. But he already rocked the world. Whatever he chooses to do needs to be what is best for him and his family. My only hope is that he can find peace.

I see you are here now, where's Karat?

Lori - Justice For Michael   November 9th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Harvey on TMZ (if you can believe him) said that the LA PD was still investigating, the case had not yet made it to the DA or the Grand Jury and that the DEA was also investigating... so just the same old same old that we have heard for months.

sorry, I don't believe in everything happening for a reason. I believe God gives us free will and gifts and opportunities.

Because I believe God offers us gifts and opportunities, I also believe in cause and effect. I cannot begin to conceive the disappointment God must feel for the way society treated his gift of Michael. I believe God is ever ready to forgive anyone who regrets their sins – hence the request for the media to reflect. And I have to ask forgiveness and help for my inability to forgive the media.

Can we hope for things going on positively with the investigation? There must be something for Latoya to be so confident when she said "the LAPD is doing a good job", or was that just a way to encourage the LAPD/ or a threat that they'd better do a good job with the investigation?

Patty Anderson   November 9th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

@ Mila hope this helps
his Is It' DVD Not Being Released Until February

(23-10-2009) Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” opens worldwide in theaters on October 28th. But according to Roger Friedman, you won’t be seeing in on DVD until February 2010.

That’s because the movie studios have a deal with DVD companies. There has to be a 90-day window after the movie has played in theaters before it’s available in stores.

“This Is It” is set to play for two weeks, from October 28th through November 13th. Sony won’t admit it, but if it does well, the documentary could get a one or two week extension in theaters.

Either way, count 90 days from the end of its theater run before you can buy it as a DVD. That means no Michael Jackson Christmas. The earliest it would turn up is February 13, 2010.

That nugget of info should create even more demand for tickets to the theater run. Even this reporter assumed “This Is It” would be the stocking stuffer of all time. But sources inside say no, and that’s it. Fans will have to rely on the collector’s item soundtrack CD featuring the songs from the movie in their original recorded versions.

Source: MJFC /

So 90 days from the very last day the film airs, we will have the dvd.
You are able to pre order the dvd at this time.

MaryRM, you are only human, as we all are. What the media did was despicable, and it will take a lot to forgive their mistakes, because they, in essence, destroyed a very meaningful life. Not that I'm meaning to compare MIchael to God, but he was certainly crucified, in a figurative sense anyway.

I don't think the media knows what having a soul means. Watching some of the videos of Michael out and about and the media right there on him. I just observed how sad and sick the media is, chasing him and grabbing and pushing for one picture. Total disregard for Michael and his children....just got to get that picture. And there is Michael, never a cross word, smiling and cooperative. Sad. The media will never have a subject like Michael again.

but I did hear that he was looking GREAT!!!! and there is NO way that he could have been on those medications at the time of those rehearsals! Murray couldn't have been administering propofol the nights before any of those rehearsals! 🙂

...and yes, I heard the way his mind works.. is just pure genius! but we knew that already!! 🙂

MaryRM   November 9th, 2009 9:47 pm ET


It is natural that Mrs. Jackson wouldn't be ready to see the film. My husband could not watch simple family movies of his mother for years after she died in a car accident, it was simply too painful. I think Tito also said he couldn't watch it yet, he wasn't ready.

Regarding the will – The lawyers will all be able to retire after all the nonsense with Michael's estate/money. some things even death doesn't change.

Oh, Mary. What control and patience God has given me when those names "Conrad Murray" and "Arnold Klein" surface. They contributed to his problem, not offer a solution. Some people really lack critical thinking but when your own medical doctor that you literally place your life into their hands betrays you over and over again, they become just as sick as the patient.

IMO – Michael was clean during the rehearsals, the tolerance was from previous issues. I believe he ready for the shows – as I've said before my hubby cycles and runs several times a week and he is 55 years old. It is all about having a planned schedule to build endurance. A marathon runner does not run the marathon once, but many times over many months during training. Michael looked all trained up and ready to conquer – too skinny but most people in showbiz are looking too skinny these days.

I don't know if there was a conspiracy, I personally have no idea and am waiting for the investigations to complete.

Then the Achilles heel was Michael's inability to sleep and Kenny and crew admit they were after him to get rest.

Determination can do wondrous and terrible things. Looks like Michael turned to propofol, it worked in the past, but couldn't find an anesthetist and, in desperation or pig-headedness, shopped and found someone corrupt enough to give him what he wanted.

Anyway, I'm going over what we've all discussed so many times and I'll probably get slammed by people. I respect everyone else's, opinion but those are mine – he looks really good, especially in the later rehearsals, and was ready for the shows. I feel happy watching TII and for about 24 hours after. Then the sadness returns.

Hi Tinkerbell–
How are you? Hope you are doing well. No, I am not a believer at all. I will never change my position, but as you know, I do support the believers, just not the mockers. Why do you ask? Was it something I said? lol. Of course I'm not offended at all. We only gain information when we ask questions....

Oh no I just wanted to ask you, Thanks for supporting us that is very sweet of you. No it was nothing that you said. I'm doing great thanks for asking, How are you?

With Much love


MourningMJ   November 9th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

@MARYRM- 10:01

Mary, of course you are entitled to your opinions. And I think they are more than opinions, I think they are brillant illustrations of Michael's struggles and accomplishments. Of course we all continue to speculate until the investigation is concluded and hard evidence could be presented. Much anxiety is building over this as many people try to make sense why an arrest has not been made, analyzing videos, photos, TII clues, etc. I will support anyone's opinion as well. Except those who are suffering from identity crisises and are mocking MJ. I hope the truth comes out. Or a least of part of it. I always remember these wise words: If it doesn't make sense, then it's not true. If it makes sense, you can sign it in your blood. It's been working for me at least.

MaryRM   November 9th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

For my Canadian compatriots: – I emailed cineplex to ask why they weren't extending TII when it was announced – I didn't see any shows past Thursday – here is their reply:

Thank you for contacting Cineplex Entertainment. “This is it” will have an extended release however; the film release schedule comes out in a week by week basis. Please check our website every Wednesday for updates.

Well, since I don't trust, I'm going with a friend Thursday anyway, and if there are more shows, then good, I'll start bringing others. Convert one at a time.

Great article. I like it.

MourningMJ   November 9th, 2009 10:10 pm ET


Well, Tinkerbell, I wish I could be better. Today was an okay day, as I measure them with very small meaningless words. I'm gaining alot of anxiety to see what happens with the investigation. Keep up the love flow for Michael! Where ever he may be, he loves us all. A Brillant man once said "Heal the world, make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race".... Let us heal each other in this time of mystery, Tinkerbell.

You know, I think some Michael's brothers and sisters still don't know what had happened.
He said: family knows... but I don't know whom he considers his family?

Laurel Gray   November 9th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

It seems strange to write news like this today. "This is it" almost two weeks on screens all over the world. Where they have been all this time?

Brooklyn1959   November 9th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Ah, Kindness, be careful what you wish for! It looks like They Don't Care is sometimes asked to do the impossible by those with unreasonable expectations.
MaryRM, that was a very sound and logical post. Someone in Michael's position can always find a person willing to bend the rules, and I know if I couldn't ever get sleep, I'd be pretty desperate.

The whole world gets to see his This Is It movie.
If not Thia Is It will be his last hurrah for England only.
A blessing?????? how can anyone think Michael dieing is a blessing it is no blessing very far from it.......if he had of lived and only did england that would of been ok at least he would still be alive.....

Stacey   November 9th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

I have a horrible memory and most of the time can't remember what someone told me five minutes ago.... But I remember where and what I was doing when I found out Michael passed..... I was with my sister's friend leaving Target and her sister called her to tell her... But when she told me I blew it off, I didn't really believe it.. Thought it was just another rumor, so I continue with my day.... Then I got home and seen it on every news station and realized it was no rumor it was fact.... I then started to get upset for blowing it off earlier, because regardless of not knowing him personally it was still a loss. Another human being dead.. Regardless of someone liking him or not it still should feel sad... I may not be as old as most people that love or comment here about Michael, I am only 20 and I don't remember much of my childhood, but I do remember loving Michael Jackson.... I had to be no older than 6 or 7 maybe even younger, but I do know how much I was in love with him... Beat It was my favorite song... I use to drive my mother crazy playing his music over and over again... But I didn't care nobody was going to get in between me and my Michael... Then as I got older I learned more about who his was as a person and his celebrity is not why I loved him... I learned that him being "The King Of Pop" was just a layer of who his was as a person... He was a kind, caring, down to earth, loving human being.. He was thrown into the spotlight at such a young age, but I don't think that ever went to his head.... He used his celebrity status to do good in this world and to help others... And for that is why I love him now...

We can never let Michael's memory fade... We need to continue to let people of my generation and generations to come to know who and what the legacy is of Micheal Jackson... We as people that love Michael owe him that...

I hope that where ever you are Michael you are at peace..... Although we all miss you I do know that everything happens for a reason... So we all shall see you again.... Sooner or later, thats why there are no good-byes just a see you later.... Love You Michael

MourningMJ   November 9th, 2009 11:29 pm ET


Found it interesting enough to read if you any of you were "inKliened" to watch TMZ last week with the "good doctor", (Arnie Klien)

Dr. Arnold Klein is a lawbreaker, says Dr. Steven Hoefflin!

The two medical professionals fame-whores have been warring with each since the death of their most famous client, Michael Jackson.

After watching Klein badmouth him last week, Hoefflin came out accusing Klein of violating federal controlled substance and trafficking laws, since "…he knew Michael was a narcotic addict yet he repeatedly injected him, probably with others in his office assisting him, 51 times over three months with a minimum of 100mg of Demerol and charged him a large amount of money."

Yeah, that sounds pretty unethical to us! Hoefflin continued to point out the obvious by also accusing Klein of violating the Federal HIPPA laws "by disclosing health care information on Michael Jackson without permission."

So while Klein is suing Hoefflin for defamation of character (even though if he should sue anyone, it's himself), Hoefflin is now going after Klein for being a big, fat liar.

But the big question is: Is anyone going to have the blame offically placed on them for giving MJ all these drugs? Or are we just going to skirt around the issue for another five months?

Sometimes when I read stories like the one you posted about single people making so much difference I just wish I could toss away my life and go do something completely different – something that has a meaning for a change.

These poacher are so cruel. I hope Africa will be able to solve that problem some day for the sake of their precious animals.
It's just heartbreaking to think what these people do. But I think the fault lies just as much with the people who buy the products of this horrible business – like ivory ornaments and furs – I will never know why they need these knowing what it takes ...

You know I've watched the Earth Song video only once – I just can't bear to see it again because of the scenes of the elephant with the cut tusks.

I agree; the tabloid journalists should really sew their mouths shuts, however, I prefer stapeling myself, I think the result would be more effective. Or glue them shut; it's a shame Billy Mays isn't around anymore, I'm sure he would have a fabulous product that could get the job done right- Irnonically, he died three days after MJ. That was a horrible week. Didn't Ed McMahon pass that Monday, then Thursday was Farrah and Michael then Sunday was Billy Mays? I would like to erase June, 2009 altogether. The only way possible that these "doctors' could possibly grasp a glimpse of pain that MJ was suffering was to injec themselves with the same medication over and over again for months and then stop it all together, throw them in a room and let the suffer the excrutiating pains of withdrawal. Perhaps then they will catch a brief glimpse of what Michael had to endure both physically, mentally and emotionally.

kiki   November 9th, 2009 11:53 pm ET

Hi, did you read the interview with Michael Jackson’s musical director, Michael Bearden on It is very nice interview. It's pretty long, but I show you some.

Q: Was he not planning to do Bad?

MB: See, here’s the thing. The set list, if MJ did every hit that he ever had, he would be on stage for 24 hours or at least a week. One of my earliest meetings with MJ, he actually went on line and, by going on line, I mean his older son, Prince Michael, probably got on line and he asked the fans what they wanted to hear. So he had a computer printout of a list from 1 to maybe 50 or 100 and he really wanted to give the fans and serve them what they wanted. He really loved the fans so much – more than any other artist I’ve ever worked with. I’ve never seen this before ever. One day we were having a meeting – he and I and maybe one of his young sons – and he showed me the printout, then he showed me his personal handwritten list. He’d take out his reading glasses which I thought was great and he showed it to me and said “What do you think, Bearden?” And I said, “You know, MJ, this is cool, but you have no J5 and you have no Off The Wall.” He says, “I don’t?” And he looked at it and went “Ahhh.” It was an angst ridden thing for us because he had so much material and so much great stuff and we really wanted to serve the fans but he also wanted to do his message pieces of Heal the World and We Are the World. That’s a big thing for him and to rescue this planet and help heal how we treat each other on the planet. So we couldn’t take those songs out. Remember the Time, there as Bad. There was so many things I wanted to do and he wanted to do them as well but we just… I said, “You know, if we do this MJ, we’ll be on stage for 3, 4, 5 hours. We can’t do that every night. You’ve got 50 days. He says, “Oh yeah, I don’t want to do that.”

Q: In that scene in the movie between you and him where you’re talking back, Michael doesn’t come across as a diva. How did you see Michael and what did you discover about him after you really got to know him?

MB: I discovered that he was not a diva and he was not a perfectionist in the dictatorial sense where “You must do what I say” kind of thing. He was very collaborative and a lot of people, including me, didn’t really know. I worked with a lotta, lotta stars, big artists, and Michael just had a mystique about him that you didn’t think you could touch him. He was quite the opposite. He was quite probably the kindest, the most generous, the most gracious, the most approachable artist that I every worked with in my life, and you wouldn’t think he would be. We would say “God bless you” and then “I love you” every day. Now how many bosses tell you they love you? Okay? So that’s what it was to work with him. He knew what he wanted and he wasn’t afraid to tell you. But he was also not afraid of change if you could make something better, make his idea better. He was open to that and he didn’t mind being vulnerable in front of you and if you made something better, he would go “Oh no, that’s better. That’s better. I like that better.”

As a person who believes that mj is alive, I am looking forward to seeing more of mj. For, right now I pray that mj and his family is doing very well and happy with his children beside him.
Love you michael forever, and whatever decisions he makes I will be behind him 1,000,000,000 always.

HOW was that claiming I am MICHAEL?

I also saw the Bad Tour 3 times in 1988...So yes, I guess I MUST be Michael jackson.

You people are nuts!

MourningMJ   November 10th, 2009 12:11 am ET


Brillantly said. There is really nothing more than I can add to your last post. It's also quite heart wrenching that we could not save him from self destruction, either...

@SANDY-HOUSTON- re: 12:01-

Oh yes of course. RN's, LPN's, MD's, PA's and other registered medical professionals maintain the same standard of care and code of ethics law and must uphold this practice to protect the ingetrity of the patient's care. If the "office nurse" or any other witness to these dangerous practices, medications to a known addict, is ethically responsible to report any behaviors that are endangering the life of the patient to their state medical board. You know how many phone calls were placed on behalf of Michael Jackson: I'm sure zero. And it was said that "one is the lonliest number".

I caught it however, there was movie on TV Guide Network...that ran for a month solid. The Jacksons brothers performed at MSG and they finished at 12:01 on Sept. 11th. Yes, they were in NY the day the towers fell.

Nope, No backstage passes for me. In fact I was nowhere evern near the stage.

But, whatever. I am not even going to address these people anymore. Why is it only you two are the ones accusing me of such things?

Letta   November 10th, 2009 12:16 am ET


Yes it is, if she say that she is not CS, why can't you let it go. Insisting that LLF, is the same as CS is funny, because they both said that they are individuals, and you keep stating that they are the same. So to me that is funny, not sad.

Mila   November 10th, 2009 12:17 am ET

Chad, Maggie,
I can't believe what you're saying – one can't even say they attended a concert any more ?

And since when is Michael famous for praising his own photographs ?
Everyone knows Michael would never say in public "I know, this is a great pic" for one of his own photos – so if he was pretending to be one I'm sure he's skip that one.

chad   November 10th, 2009 12:17 am ET

silent observer,

There is no conspiracy. I just hate it when people come on here playing games.

Love~Lives~Forever~   November 10th, 2009 12:17 am ET

@ Maggie,
What your doing is sad. Spreading lies about people. Are you even a Michael Jackson fan? Because you sure do not act like you are, because telling people things like they are facts when they are lies is just wrong. Because you are dead wrong.

Stop spreading your lies. Not sure what you think you are proving.

@LLF You can't be Citing Sources tonight, OK? It's my turn. 🙂

You have to be Michael though, because at the 30th anniversary show, it was only him & the brothers performing to an empty building, right? So, if you were there, you have to be him. Well, or Jermaine. You wanna be Jermaine? 🙂

Mila   November 10th, 2009 12:21 am ET

LLF is not Rhiannon.

He is a very nice person who cares about discussing topics that matter when you give them a break from having to defend himself and explain again and again that he is NOT Michael Jackson.

I for one enjoy my conversations with him. Something I can't say about the conversation right now.

And I did go back and read every comment he ever made like I promised you I'd do and I didn't find anything saying "Hey, I'm MJ you know"

Laurel Gray   November 10th, 2009 12:21 am ET

Love~Lives~Forever~   November 10th, 2009 12:22 am ET

you are the one playing games!

And yes, Michael would never say his photo was good...get real!

So me saying I went to the show there means I am trying to tell people I am Michael? Thats insane.

Why is it YOU are the only one who even picked up off of my comment? That seems odd to me. No One else got that vibe, just you.

has anything I have ever said made you think I am trying to convince you I am Michael Jackson? Please be honest.

silent observer   November 10th, 2009 12:22 am ET


Understand not liking games. But honestly, everything that LLF has no game or hidden agenda in it. In fact, if I remember correctly- has stated multiple times that they are not Michael, do not pretend to be Michael, etc. We shouldn't assume anything about anyone- especially since reading a blog on the internet is so easy to misconstrue. Please try to give LLF the benefit of the doubt.

LLF made some very good contributions today- and people skipped right over it. Mila and LLF found some common ground. Let's focus on Michael's message-

Anyone interested in learning more ways you can help save the Planet?

If all that comment that Cs and LLF are not the same person, then have thought that just maybe you made a mistake by saying this. So, seen to me you are the one misjudging who a person may be.

Mila   November 10th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I'll be honest with you and everyone else here.
Recently I have been far less bothered by the presence of the imposters than the endless meaningless one-line conversations between some bloggers.
These kind of conversations belong in a chat-room or messenger – not here in the blog.
Not to mention the topics of some of these conversations – it's just apalling.

@ Mila AGREE!

ibelieve   November 10th, 2009 12:26 am ET

After our conversation at the R ranch, while I know Citing was out on a shopping spree, you never once said anything to me about being Michael. As a matter of fact, didn't we discuss MJ fans behaving in a manner that would break his heart? So you see Maggie, while Rhi was out buying a new purse, LLF and I were in deep conversation.

Thanks so much for posting part of the Michael Bearden interview. I went to the website and read the rest of it. His insight into Michael'a thinking and creativity is comforting and heartbreaking at the same time. And it shows how, unlike any other entertainer, Michael truly loved his fans. He always wanted to please them. What could have been...

What exactly are you trying to prove, because you look childish right now. Stop throwing another one of your tantrums.

Okay, I'm done...with much love, Tinkerbell.

Citing Sources   November 10th, 2009 12:40 am ET

*Maybe* just maybe because LLF & myself are two totally different people. And Maggie's unhealthy obsession with following me around is NOT cool. And there she hides behind this nice little security blanket of "I'll pray for you" as if that one little phrase makes it okay to say and or accuse someone of anything.

Love~Lives~Forever~   November 10th, 2009 12:40 am ET

Please, let them be.

You know what – even if you choose to stay firm in your belief that these two bloggers are the same person there's nothing wrong with that either.
No one has said that each blogger should use only one signature – it's up to them if they want to discuss one topic under one name and another under a different name.

I don't find either of these 2 blog names posting anything offensive or disturbing or even slightly wrong.
As I said before I enjoy talking to LLF and CS is just so wonderfully funny while at the same time being intelligent and insightful that I can't believe you don't like her just as much as we all do.

Tinkerbell   November 10th, 2009 12:44 am ET


I have it now, I'm all straight on things. Sometimes people like Maggie like to come and get everyone all confused. It's classic diversion so that everyone will pay attention to them. I like to call the shine stealers.

I was accused of being someone else too, so I understand. Don't worry about it. You know who you are and my blogger homie Citing knows who she is. I'm done with it all. I like you both, so I'm cool.

Don't blame it on the boogie, blame it on the haters.

We're going to have to take up a collection to put LLF in therapy if we keep messing with his identity. So we really need to back it up. Cause therapy's expensive these days. 🙂

LLF's input here has been quite a contribution in the last couple of days. Hate to see him throw it all because we STILL can't accept people for themselves. But, hey, that's just ME.

@ ibelieve:

Sorry to hear that he has been absent, but I can only imagine that Michael has been busy.

Ana   November 10th, 2009 1:47 am ET

Hi carebear:

Michael L.O.V.E was last night for awhile in the blog:

Michael Jackson – This Is It – Epic Film for an Epic Man

elly   November 10th, 2009 2:33 am ET

This part really made me cry:

"The world stopped. Everybody stared. Mouths dropped open. Men and women cried. The King of Pop was as dead "

elly   November 10th, 2009 3:07 am ET

on june 25 I was seating in my room and I was so bored I decided to listen to the radio which I never do at home. I turned on the radio and they were playing Michael's song. I don't remember which one it was. I said to my self finally a great song on the radio, but the song ended and the guy said: michael jackon dead at 50 due to...... I was shocked. I ran into the living room and turned the TV on, and there it was on CNN. It was a horrible day that I will never forget. I cried a river.when they showed his body being transfered from the helicopter to the hospital I just could not take it anymore. I felt like a huge part of my childhood was gone instantly.

Emmy Lalonde, Belgium.   November 10th, 2009 5:05 am ET

Since I was young child is only the death of Michael Jackson making me really very sad, feeling of loosing something arround me without ending,
however each time I remind myself that he is really gone. Michael having such powerful of love to everyone arround the world and he got it then in return that we could never been enough day to day to describe how great really our love to him and his love to all of us. Michael is magic magician in all kind of the ways, that he will live and life with us forever. We LOVE you Michael, without ending, till the end of our time. GBU.

S.M.I.L.E   November 10th, 2009 5:08 am ET

she need an expensive heart surgery. We are collecting the money for that!
I would give her mine If I could, I would really do that ! The chances to survive that surgery are 70 %.
If she dies, a part of me will go with her!
Please keep her in your prayers!

Ozzie   November 10th, 2009 5:12 am ET


I don't understand why these things have to happen to sweet innocent children. There should be more help for them. What is wrong with this world.

Mary   November 10th, 2009 5:14 am ET

Susan62509   November 10th, 2009 6:56 am ET

What About Us........

Many companies/business have an IT Department that monitor employees emails and block employees from going into non-work related internet sites. That would be my guess of what is happening to you. Just a guess though. You can ask someone in your IT Department that handles all the computers in your place of work.

Susan62509   November 10th, 2009 7:04 am ET


The punctuation and capitolization do not match between LLF and CS.


Please, next time you make an accusation against someone you need to prove it. Copy and paste them in your comment. This may help bloggers better understand what in the heck you are talking about. LLF is a man and CS is a woman. Go back and read where LLF identifies himself as male when someone asks. Go to CS's website and look at her picture. Hopefully, this will give you peace of mind.

What About Us   November 10th, 2009 7:28 am ET

@ Susan......we dont have an It dept. Its just me and 2 other people. I used the name Elisabeth (capital E) before at work and it worked just fine. I cant post on other websites, just not this one...from work. I was messin around with my email alerts so maybe I screwed something up...

What About Us   November 10th, 2009 7:30 am ET

Sorry....typo...I CAN post on other blogs from work..but not this one.
I have tried to change my screen name a few times so maybe my pc is confused!!!

Maria   November 10th, 2009 7:42 am ET

@ Maggie – at 9:39, LLF says only he was at the MSG concert, nothing more. If I said I was at that concert, would you say I claim to be Michael Jackson too?

Please, don't base your judgements on punctuation and other such things. Based on that, I can say as well that you are one of the **mj**s, because he/she doesn't leave a blank after the comma, right?
As for appearing out of the blue, like CS, you have appeared too out of the blue when Chad (or "chad") started to comment.

I have always appreciate your comments on these blogs, but this time I guess you're wrong. CS obviously isn't the kind of person who can feel the need to pose as someone else.

(ooops, not awake yet 🙂 )

Re: my post about nurse responsibility,you are exactly right and I did know the answer but just wanted to put the thought/question out there. (Doing what I can to keep people focused on the case and facts). It will be interesting to see when the backstabbing starts between physician and former employer....if it hasn't already started. They will all try to save themselves.
I know it will be bad, but I am so ready for this investigation to be done, and moving towards arrests, trial, convictions, etc.
Hope you have a great Tuesday, MMJ!

Sandy-Houston   November 10th, 2009 8:28 am ET

I hope today is a better day for you. You were having a tough time yesterday. It's okay as long as we don't all have a bad Michael day at the same time! 🙂

Susan62509   November 10th, 2009 8:56 am ET

What About Us.......

The only thing I can think of at this point is.....the screen name you used for CNN from work has to be the same screen name you used for CNN from home. The email address has to be the same also from work and home.

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   November 10th, 2009 9:06 am ET

Love Lives Foever
They don't care about us.
Lori of Quebec Canada
and everyone

I am sorry for offendiing you all in my comments of Mj's death being a blessing in disguise.
I guess it's a wrong choice of words.
What iI'm trying to say that if not for his death, the world including Malaysia will not get to see hiim anymore.
That's what ran though my mind when I watch the movie This Is it.
At the same time I was teary-eyed at the cinema.
I remember MJ's agent saying England will be his last hurrah. That's it.
I was thinking if he is still alive, we will not be seeing him anymore as he has given up performing.
I am happy he chose England because Britons and us except America (maybe) valued MJ more.
I am also happy because I have the memory of seeing MJ performed in Kuala Lumpur in 1997..
Once again my apologies.

Victoria J   November 10th, 2009 9:56 am ET


Good Morning, Sunshine! Yesterday was not horrible, but it was not the best and today started out well on the blog about Michael's fashion sense, but plummeted when I read this article. It bothers me when people call themselves writers and use such terminology to describe Michael in death as "dead as a door nail." I am really tired of the inhumanity of man towards each other and showing no civility or decorum in writing about another man's demise. Michael is the perfect example. However, it may be that Mr. Gordon is just a bad writer full of too many cliches and has no arsenal of orginal ideas to describe not only the death of a man, but of a legend as well. Overall, a positive article, but my radar is just zoning in on the negativity. The weather does not help either, rainy and gray, but I am overlooking a very pretty little scene this morning with my stone patio wet and sprinkled with the most gorgeous red and yellow leaves fallling from the crepe myrtles. When I see these kinds of vignettes, I do think of Michael and how he was inspired by the tiniest details from which to gather his musical material. The man's life inspires me and I am going to tuck that in the briefcase of my heart as I head out the door to work! Have a lovely day, Sandy, and keep spreading the sunshine.

(Oh, I did read exchanges btw. you and MourningMJ. Ya'll's friendship is such a blessing and your knowledge in the medical/drug addiction arena is helping me to grasp what our dear Michael was up against. So, here's a little shout out to MMJ, too...You have a great day as well.)

Citing Sources   November 10th, 2009 11:51 am ET

@ Susan

You are totally free to share that here if you wish. I think I'm ruffling too many feathers, so I'd prefer if you shared that way I don't look like a self-serving promoter. You know? (PS... thank you for making sense.)

@ Maria

Thank you for saying what you said in your post. It is funny that when people tend to go on a rampage against someone else, they're usually trying to avert attention from whatever they're hiding themselves.

And as for popping up out of blue as has been pointed out, what... so I'm supposed to post here 24/7 or not post at all? Nice. Don't we all pop up out of the blue? Or is there some shift set for posters that I'm not adhering to? *snerk*

Well, my VP caught me in the hallway this morning to tell me that she saw TII and she found it amazing. I knew all it would take was for people to see Michael just being Michael (amazing talent, sweetest man on is hearth). Word of mouth for this film will restore Michael's reputation, it is sad that it took his death for people to see him as he really was.

Regarding your comment on the weather...even on those gray, rainy days there are glimpses of light and beauty. You received that gift this morning with the sprinkling of fall leaves. I'm reminded how Michael always admired everything about nature. In fact he spoke so eloquently about it in This Is It.
Inhumanity among man towards each other - it is sad and disturbing. But as you and I know, a "sign" of the times that we have been told and you know what I mean.

Sandy-Houston   November 10th, 2009 2:35 pm ET

Just a litttle trivia regarding Michael's song Wanna Be Startin' Something. The phrase "Makossa" from the song is from a 1972 song called Soul Makossa which means "I Will Dance" in the African language of Duoala from Duola, Cameroon. You all may already know this. Michael didn't just write or perform songs. He became that song.

@SANDY- Re: 8:26 a.m.

Hi, how are you! I figured your question last night was to get the nonthinkers to start becomming focused and serious as to why we are all really here. Apparently, the kiddies were up past their bedtime and someone was getting drunk and wanted to get their low self-esteem fueled by some broken hearted fans and your message was lost in the blog. Although, I am very quick to identify intelligent posts but these days they are becoming far and few between. Well, I think "something" must be happening because it looks like two of the enablers already drew their guns. Well, I know Arnie was an enabler, just by his verbal testimony alone, however, I'm indifferent to Steven Hoefflin right now. I do not know much about him except that it was him who treated MJ's burns right after the Pepsi incident, that same night, and that he continued to provide "medical services" to MJ for sometime there after. He doesn't seem to be the target of the investigation and Hoefflin was very very admiment that MJ was addicted to narcotics and even stated himself that he had planned a few interventions for him. I'm still indifferent to Hoefflin. I am very suspicious of the "nurse" without mentioning any names. I find it awfully paculiar that she claims that Michael begged for propofol from her on June 21st, however, Murray had been fueling MJ with propofol for six weeks before this. So why did MJ need the "nurse"? Again, 2+2 does not equal 3; there is a piece missing. I'm also still not sure why Arnie did not report MJ's self destructive behavior to the proper authorities like social services, when he knew he was taking propofol. It's his ethical duty to report improper medication dispension and Arnie knew of the doctors that were fueling MJ with this garbage, not only the propofol but the diluadid too. These are words out of Arnie's mouth! It's a puzzle. The border seems to be outlined as its edges are very straight and narrow and fit together without dispute; it is the middle pieces that are difficult; too many inconsistencies, too many pieces, different shapes, sizes, colors, some pieces seemed to have disappeared, some almost fit but the picture doesn't make sense, etc. I could go on an on.

@VICTORIA- Hi Vic!! How are you today? I see you have sunshine, here in this city, none at all. It's gray overcast but the sun is begging to come out. I agree with your posts, when MJ first passed away, it seemed that many media "journalists" even tabloids (most, but not all) really respected his name carefully when using "death" and MJ in the same sentence. I still myself say "passed away" or deceased when describing Michael Jackson as "dead" to me seems so cold and humanless. I did probably say it maybe five or six times, but that was either repeating someone or I just slipped and said it but recanted that word. Thanks for the shout out, Vic. lol. When I first came to this world of addiction in my job field, believe me when I tell you it is a much different world. I am saddened by individuals who approach me on the street right outside my clinic and try to hussle me for a dollar until I have to remind them who I am- because these individuals are my clients. They forget. Because when you are desperate and seeking, everything around you becomes invisible; faces, names, people, events, your children, God and of course your money, your pride, and your self-esteem. Things tend to disappear as well: your family, your future, your career. It took me a very long time to understand the cycle of addiction and insanity; because the clear definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again expecting different results. Things don't change because we want them to. We have to make them happen. What really pisses me off is that MJ had so many resources available to him as well and performed his way out of this as well. He gave his whole family a little kiss on the cheek and sent them on their merry way when they tried to confront him. The greatest entertainer is the one who can fool everybody but themselves.
I guess today is an angry day.

I didn't even finish a sentence up there, see how unfocused I am? I was trying to say that the media was respectful at first in regarding to Mj's passing, but over the past few months they have become very tasteless and disrespectful in their commentary. Some jerk even sent me list of MJ jokes that I replied back to him (friend of a friend) with a big f.u. and a little taste of my mind. I never thought death jokes were funny or entertaining at all, and when the trial is over I'm sure late night will be all over it begging for rating boosts. As usual.

Mary RM – I tried to answer you earlier on the other blog but it got lost. I am delighted that your VP went to see the movie and told you she found it amazing.

Sandy-Houston   November 10th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

Since you're in your angry mode today, I have a few physicians you could straighten out for me. 🙂 Why are they the hardest to get to follow the rules?! You are so right about Michael having resources that he chose not to use. To me that is the part that is such a waste. But as you said an addict doesn't see anything else when they're searching and once Michael got that part of his life (by hiring CM), he thought he was okay. Michael had a way of compartmentalizing in his life.
I also have uneasy feelings about the "office nurse." Maybe I'm getting paranoid but as you said.... it's those middle pieces of the puzzle that are not fitting. And that may be what's taking so long with this case. God, I hope LAPD gets this right.

Sandy-Houston   November 10th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

Katherine Jackson withdrew her objections to the appointment of the two executors of Michael's the best interest of her son's children.
Good for you, Katherine. The children are what matters.
This move shows much class on her part.

Dreamer girl   November 10th, 2009 4:13 pm ET

I saw the film ... I can not describe the feelings ... This ... Amazing! It is the fairy-tale, realy fairy tale. Michael gave us a fairy tale. I admire this man. And I always will admire. Michael extraordinary man. He is the magician. 🙂 Michael, I love you so much.

Believe in you... I believe you.

Anne   November 10th, 2009 4:21 pm ET

I think it may come down to the DA or a grand jury's decision as to whether or not it is reckless for an MD to give someone IV propofol in his home for insomnia and to give it and then leave the room. Their medical experts should all be saying it was reckless. If they decide it is not reckless, then it is malpractice. I would like to see a murder #2 charge and have him plead guilty to manslaughter to avoid a trial where MJ is dragged through the mud.

@MAKEA- Hi Makea- yes, it is an angry day; well, it's been an angry five months. Anyone see any closure up ahead? Point me in the right direction please!

@SANDY-HOUSTON- I agree, I hope the LAPD is taking their sweet time getting it together- the RIGHT way. They owe Michael more than justice. He was majorly screwed over by mulitple California law enforcement authorities throughout his life; at least NOW they can give him a fair trial. With him on the other side of the courtroom; even if it is in spirit.

@LORA- Oh, thank you! I cannot chat during the day, big no-no at my job, only blog, lol. I will check to see if anyone is on the bloggy chat tonight. Good thing you posted in here- there is actually intellectual conversation being exchanged; the kiddies and the drunks cannot identify with such. Thank you, Lora!!

If I could I would do it........

Victoria J   November 10th, 2009 6:10 pm ET

@MourningMJ, Sandy-H, Anne

It's almost the end of the day, my friends, and I am delighted to see thought provoking, although spine tingling comments being posted. Did I say delighted? Only because here we are dealing with reality. I will never be delighted at how or why Michael passed away (for you MMJ). I accept his passing, but I, too, like Anne (at a post on another blog, I beieve) would like to be able to understand what happened to Michael to cause so much pain that he turned to such a dangerous drug of choice (propofol) for insomnia. We can speculate to a certain degree especially during the time we began to know him, but what about that part of his life that we do not know.

And MMJ, truly I felt the rush of my nerve endings run throughout my body with this: "when you are desperate and seeking, everything around you becomes invisible; faces, names, people, events, your children, God and of course your money, your pride, and your self-esteem. Things tend to disappear as well: your family, your future, your career." I am reminded of that quote: There is no greater poverty than being alone. How can Michael be held responsible at this point? How does brilliance choose this over sanity?

And Sandy-H the investigation by the LAPD is actually on my prayer list, I swear, and has been since they went back to his home so many days after Michael's passing. You and MMJ have piqued my interest with the nurse angle. I am giving that some thought. But I am feeling like Anne in regards to a trial – I don't want to see Michael have to suffer anymore and I really do not want his children to have to live with this in their adulthood trying to get things figured out with their Daddy, the why's and the wherefore's. My heart breaks for them in all of this, because this is who is left of Michael here to ultimately deal with all this mess. They are a part of him and there is no separation on that basis and so I know what is said about him, they will one day know it all and have to process it. They cannot be protected forever from this cruelty, so Anne, I understand your position on this from this vantage point we have.

And this is where I get angry, and I know you all do as well. I get angry with everybody, including Michael (I am sorry, but I do) and then quickly it turns into this gut wrenching feeling of helplessness. And of course, we could have done nothing, but I still have a difficult time grasping that no one, NO ONE, could help this desperate man? Was he really that good at manipulation, playing the role? And then I realize he probably was because he had been having to be something maybe he never wanted to be his entire life, always jumping through hoops full of expectation, with no love waiting on the other side. No wonder he escaped, but did he really want out of the game?

Let us brace ourselves for the coming days as we embrace one another.

MourningMJ   November 10th, 2009 8:39 pm ET


Wow, Victoria, you have really moved me to a feeling I have never felt before. After I read your words of heartbreak, anger, frustration, confusion and determination, I am now more perplexed than ever. I feel very similarly; I no longer want Michael to suffer as well. However, my interest is more than starving for this information as to what drove Michael to his death- and the propofol and insomnia were just the side affects to the bigger picture. What the hell was really going on with the This is It tour and other issues? (I'm sorry, anger speaking). As I said before and I'm confident I will say it again, Michael needed his ass kicked and a reality check to leave him speechless. This could have saved him. I don't care if he would have cried and pouted, TOUGH. That's just too bad. Michael would never, ever allow this conduct with this children. Ever. He would have moved Heaven and Earth to save any one of those children from self-destruction, so why the hell didn't Joseph and Katherine do more than just relent to one of Michael's temper tantrums- since when did parenting stop because your child is 50? Parenting does not discriminate. But they are the ones who lost a child, not me. I would never be able to measure in words or feelings what they could possibly be feeling right now, yes and even Joe. Again, I have to keep reminding myself that God chose Joe to be Michael's father for a reason unknown to me- perhaps Joe DID give Michael some gifts that is naked to OUR eyes. Who knows? I would love to think that Michael would want to join both if his parents when God calls them home; so I hope, for Joe's sake, that Joe gets right with God (all of us need to, not just Joe of course) before he and Michael can enjoy their first embrace in their new life together. There are so many feelings surfacing just like back in June- You are so right, Victoria, let's get ready to {{{ Embrace each other }}}}}

Victoria J   November 10th, 2009 9:08 pm ET


I am not really ready, MMJ. I don't want to go through this again. I am afraid we will have to and I am glad God gave me you to stand through the tears in the duration of another time of sadness and what if's. (((((Embrace each other)))))

Sandy-Houston   November 10th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Victoria J & Mourning MJ –
I have sat here at my computer for almost two hours after reading your end of the day post, Victoria. Not knowing where to start. But you have said it all. And I am in tears.
Is this ever going to get better? Indeed, what happened to Michael to cause such unimaginable pain in his life that he resorted to an anesthetic drug for insomnia? This lifelong battle with insomnia was only a symptom of a much bigger trauma in his childhood. A trauma that he could not deal with because Michael never learned to live off stage.

Something happened, yes. Being in the medical field and having friends throughout the country in the same field, I always heard rumors. This is one truth I don't think I want to find out. anger with Michael and his family and his HIS CHILDREN. I know Michael loved his children more than anything. But this man we all love and admire was an addict living and taking care of his children. And NO ONE stepped up to Michael and said enough is enough....get your life straight for your sake and your children's. No one called social services, no one stepped in to threaten him with taking the children away until he got better. WHY?! A friend was discussing this and made the statement that is so true. She said, "Sandy, those people out in the Hollywood world live a whole different lifestyle than you and I. They don't even know what reality is because of the nature of their fame. They become victims. " In our world, someone would be calling social services, the police, doing something. I know I would. As you said, MMJ, someone to kick his ass back into reality.

]I know I will hear bashing from some, but this is going to be heartwrenching for his children when they find out everything and then have to deal with it. Victoria & MMJ, this is a mess. And they are the ones left to live with it for the rest of their lives.

I love Michael with all my heart. I only wish he or someone else would have helped him.
