Yes, there will always be hate. When Princess Diana died I had never seen such hateful remarks about this woman. I didn't understand because I couldn't figure out what this woman did to get that kind of hatred.

Don't know if anyone has brought this up. But what's with Joe Jackson - promoting a record company by capitalizing on the publicity of his son's death.

A shallow or juvenile culture is heavily influenced by looks.

Was he right in doing what he did to his appearance in order for his work and his celebrity to succeed?
Good question. But I don't think the pigment changing in his face, helped him more. Because Thriller came out when he was still black. And That is the best selling album of all-time. He BROKE the color barrier when that album came out. And he did it with the previous album Off The Wall. Now the plastic surgery question, I'm not sure if that helped him. I highly doubt it.

Default Michael Jackson died?

What???? I guess I need to get out more....Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and now Billy Mays, yes, it's been a very sad couple of weeks. Bet the sham-wow guy isn't as sad though.

Because people suck.

I am truly amazed how easy it is for some people to harshly judge a man whose life was truly extraordinary. As human beings we are not meant to endure the type of fame - and the stress that comes with it - for the length of time that MJ did from such a young age. How can anyone condemn a person for not handling it well (in terms of his self destructive behavior) is beyond me.

As far as MJ being a pedophile... I don't believe that he was at all. I would think that by now, if his accusers really were molested, that one of them would have come out and told their story like the girl who was molested by Roman Polanski did. No one knows for sure though what happened and it annoys me that anyone would pretend like they know the truth for certain. What a tragedy it would be if Michael was falsely accused and endured the wrath of so many people unjustifiably? Michael's not even cold and in his grave yet... and there's people saying some really nasty and hateful things about him. I'm truly disgusted by this type of behavior (and you know who you are) but I guess some people don't give a second thought about speaking ill of the dead.

To all the fellow MJ fans. - thanks for being fair.
Somebody posted this story out of GQ that goes back a few years. I have not had a chance to read it in its entirety yet, but it makes me sick to my stomach to think that MJ was set up and how it must have haunted and sickened him to be thought of as a pedophile. As depressing as it would be to think how cruely he was treated by some, I hope the truth comes to light for Michael's sake and to finally shut the ugly mouths of the people that have condemned him. I watched him grow up and I am so saddened.

Was Michael Jackson Framed?

That would seem to be very much in character for the whole Jackson clan.

They are the type of people who are best avoided. Fortunately, at least one member is no longer sucking up oxygen and engaging in absurd imitations of life.

I'd find this funny if it wasn't so absurd.

She got pregnant with a Muslim - the Queen's Prop Machine went into full overdrive.
