i liked his music.
i liked his moves (esp when in the J5).
i thought he was way ahead musically and vision wise...
i feel bad for his kids.
may he rip.
holding hands affectionately certainly ain't no crime last time i checked. kiddie fiddler wise i doubt his innocence but his guilt was never proven... and fact is 95% paedophiles were subjected to similar in their childhood, so where does the blame start/stop?
i always found it kind of weird that he got dissed for turning white, but no one ever talked about WHY he might have done that... living in the land of liberty where everyone is colour blind an all that...

Think of this like the end of batman.

Two-face died a monster, but was remembered as a legend and hero.

maybe we should do the same for MJ?

judging by what was said, he did seem to have two sides to him so the comparison isn't far fetched.


and hold it that way at least until people speak out in 20 years saying MJ molested them.

The King is Dead
I hereby nominate Prince as the new King

Thanks MJ for bringing me so much happiness, even to this day.

prince WOULD be the king....if he didn't release every half-assed (albeit well recorded and produced) song that he has laying around.... dont gimme wrong, i LOVE prince, i just thing his album cohesiveness is just WHACK... the latest one has some KILLER SONGS,but overall it sounds like a mixtape of whatever he's got laying around, in any particular order....

rip JACKO...i dont give shit about the freaky personal private life that u had....just yer records.
rip FARRAH....i dont give a shit about all the horrible shows you made...just THAT ASS that LOOK!!!

now, back to making music in LIVE 8 SUITE, which is BAD ASS.....

I don't know about mj but the only people who can describe the presence or absense and the possible location of any mole on my dick are people I've had sex with and people who changed my diapers, not kiddies having a sleep over.

Don't care about the controversy, not interested in whether he did it or not, as if we could really sort through the BS. My guess is he probably did, but it's just a guess. I liked Thriller, the rest of his material didn't match that record IMO.

That said: :twisted:

What's the difference between MJ and Disney Films? Disney films can still touch kids

whats the difference between farrah fawcett and michael jackson?
little boys liked to pin farrah to the wall... not the other way around.

What's the difference Between Michael Jackson and Peter Pan? Peter Pan can still play with little boys in Neverland.

RIP Michael Jackson, born a black man, died a white woman.

This makes no sense whatsoever. Farrah was pinning boys to the wall? Where does Michael Jackson come in? Mega WTF. :?:

Jokes aren't funny if you have to explain them. :?

Every teenage boy had a Farrah poster pinned to his wall in the 70's.
MJ was accused of "pinning boys to the wall", if you get my drift.

Once Jacko handed out the money for the settlements in the various molestation cases, I think that's more than enough to assume that he was doing something he shouldn't have been doing. If you were an insanely successful musician who stood to lose absolutely everything by being labeled a molester, wouldn't you fight that to a better end? Man if I was MJ, I'd at least have the common sense to know that once people found out that I was paying off the child's families that their impression of me would change almost as much as if I was found guilty.

Jacko apologists... lol.

As for his death, I would've preferred it happened in a worse way but hey, heart attacks will get the job done.

My guess is you had no idea that Farrah was a sex symbol with posters in every pubescent boys room in the 70's, that's not the fault of the joke, just makes you really young, or ignorant or both. :wink:
