This morning I was in the bank and saw Farrah Fawcett's death being announced. It was not surprising as I knew she was losing her battle with cancer. This evening I turned on the television to see the shocking news that Michael Jackson had died.

MJ made beautiful music and was one of the most talented entertainers ever. From Ben to We are the World, Beat it, Billie Jean, Man in the Mirror he was really the Thriller. With his glove and magical foot work MJ was a man that loomed larger than life. Despite all his fame and the world at his feet he was a tortured soul. We watched him experiment with plastic surgery until his face became a caricature of the young handsome face we saw in his youth.

We watched with confusion as his behaviour became bizarre-walking with a veil on his face,turning himself into Peter Pan and the infamous sleepovers. We got angry with our Prince for hating his black skin and some forgave(even though they weren't sure if it was true) when the news reported he suffered from a skin disease. We made jokes on him but we always respected the music and gloried in the the chart topping feats.

It just doesn't feel right that MJ is no longer with us. I feel bad and I am not even the person who gets bent out of shape by celebrities. I am just shocked. Finally, some peace though for the King of Pop. RIP MJ, the music will live on.

you are not alone, i am there with you,

Change the world,
Make it a better place...

For you and for me and the entire human race.

Wow. so sad.
The saddest thing about his life and death is that he never had any privacy. Look what stardom and publicity did to Britneys Spears in just a few short years, now imagine being followed, your every move scrutinized for 45 years, its no wonder he did some of the things he did. Even now after his death the media still won't leave him alone speculating where his children will go? etc etc... I was not a huge fan but I did love some of songs. I hope he is finally able to rest, Angie
@Angie.It is obvious MJ waged an inner war. You don't do all this drastic surgery without some underlying reason.He came-he did what he had to do and now he's gone to finally be at rest.
