Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson appears to be dead.

It all depends on which newspaper you read.. they say different things.

One of Jackson's biggest hits, Thriller, was out in 1982, two years before I was born. So he's always kinda been, to quote BBC, "an odd-looking middle aged man". And, according to CNN; "the most famous person in the world".

Michael Jackson was one of very few people who were truly huge while I grew up. Someone the whole world knew. And no matter how I personally felt about him... it feels strange to let him go.

"Michael Jackson".

How long will people remember that name? Will he become a legend, like Elvis? Or will he simply become "that strange guy"?

I guess I'm just too young to have seen the good times.

And knowing the way the world works... I'll definitely go with the first.

    MJ was a huge star in my childhood in the 80's. I grew up with his music. Loved it!! He will become a legend just as Elvis, if not bigger. Rest in peace, Michael Jackson:(

    I couldn't care less. Okay, he was a musical genius, but he wasn't exactly... how to say it, in his right mind. Better people die every day, and i'm not sad at all for MJ. Atleast now the children can sleep a little safer :P

    Even if people have something against MJ, they could just shut up for one day, and let the people who will miss him have this moments today/tonight.
    I am not a big fan of MJ, but i grew up with his music and the "smooth" mooves, so i have respect for him even tho!

    R.I.P. Michael.

    dette er svært svært trist! jeg håper mannen som har skapt glede for så mange blir tatt vel i mot av GUD og at han som har gitt håp til så utrolige mange barn og unge verden over som lever i fattigdom og elendighet at HAN "King of Pop" vil leve for alltid i våre hjerter gjennom musikken hans og gjennom hans beskjed til hele verden: Make this world a better place!
    Michael, I sincerely believe you have made a difference! WE LOVE YOU, REST IN PEACE AND MAY YOUR SOUL BE IN THE HANDS OF OUR GOD!

    Arrangert død.

    Et utrolig Jippo, rett før konserten i London.

    Well, let's see what happens.
