Michael Jackson was a great performer and obviously the "King of Pop". He had a great impact on the whole world and a very big influence to many of the artists our children look up to today. BUT it's such a sickening sorry shame that people start back recognising him AFTER he passed away. Let's face it, many of you have dragged this man through mud FACE DOWN, dawging the shit out of him, if you will. None of you even understood that this mans life. The biggest challenge for him was just to be accepted as he was and NOT for what lies people made up of him. Yes I was a bit sad because he passed away, and even cried at one point through the memorial service. He had no influence on me personally because I am not a performer. I loved his music and the way he performed and every single one of his music videos, but all of a sudden when it was announced that he passed away, everyone ran to the stores to buy his music, posters etc. Why didn't you purchase that stuff when he was alive? And that goes for anyone who passed away. You all only realise how wonderful a person WAS when they EXPIRE!!! Then all of a sudden you love him. Someone responded to me on twitter and asked how could I be so cold hearted and that they were only remembering him and don't I laugh and talk about good times when a family member passes away. Well Duh that's someone that shared the same blood as me HELLO I actually knew that person and spent QUALITY time with them. You don't actually know Michael Jackson.Yea you spent Quality time trying to do the moon walk and singing his songs and tearing him down. You just know that he was an all around great performer who influenced music stars today. Everyone is all of a sudden exploiting him and trying to tell what THEY think what happened. The proof is in the pudding, he had an addiction to something that made him feel better. Its sad to say but that's the conclusion. Now people want to keep his music alive. His music was alive when he was alive you just didn't acknowledge it. He was a great man and probably sweet as pie. Then to top it all off, his own father falls in the same category as most of you who contributed to the rumors. He can't even get a break six feet under.
