I'm an emotional person, so it does take much these days to move me to tears. Today, when I heard of Michael Jackson's death, it was so unexpected that I felt I was hit by a wall. I began to sob for a few mins. cause this was a person that had been apart of my life since as long as I can remember. In fact. Wanna Be Startin' Something was the first song I remember learning the words to.

I'm fine now however.

I also shed a tear for Aaliyah, Lefteye and John Ritter. Got choked up about JFK Jr.

What about you?

Yeah, I cried when I heard the news about Michael Jackson. At first I was so shocked. About 2 minutes or so, I pretty much was sobbing in the bathroom. He was one of my biggest influences.

I also cried when Heath Ledger, and a little with Anna Nicole Smith.

I have very heavy feelings in this cases, and wish I could cry. It may happen later, when some other straw will break the camel's back.

I cried a little over John Ritter's death. It really made me sad. I loved him.

I was also sad about Anna Nicole. Not even really sure why. I was a huge fan or anything but I always thought she was a beauty but very messed up. Plus I felt so bad for her losing her son.

I've gotten choked up over several- including Michael Jackson today.

The only ones that I can remember that I've really cried over were Princess Diana, Bea Arthur, and Elliot Smith.

The only celeb that I cried over was Walter Payton. I cried at his Hall Of Fame Induction ceremony as well.

I cried when Selina died - not in real life but in the movie. I got a little misty eyed watching Golden Girls after Estelle Getty died.

I cried when John Lennon died. I also shed a few tears for Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, and probably several others whom I can't think of at the moment.
