It's a shame he ruined his reputation for the last decade+...
i just read this on another website. i can't believe he's dead. he was amazing in his hayday...agreed on too bad he ruined it in the past years
I fucked up on the thread title, dammit!
This is the Michael Jackson that should be remembered:
If only this had happened in 1995...
what are you people talking about? Sources: Michael Jackson taken to hospital after cardiac arrest - CNN.com
from what i have read hes not dead and sudden cardiac arrest+revival means the pt. is still alive and kicking.
Right after Bad would have been clutch for his reputation. Now he'll have to be remembered like Elvis; selective memory. :/
Yeah, he's not dead yet. Just at the hospital....
lol anything from TMZ should be taken with a grain of salt imo
Yup. Dead as a doornail. He was found with no heartbeat, and they were unable to start it beating again. He just no longer beat it...
You gotta be kidding me...News sites are reporting his death.
I'm heartbroken. I love this man's collection. Goddamnit...
LOL, but how do you really feel?
Am I the only one who doesn't care?
Want me to change the thread title? Heh... I didn't know if it was meant to give suspense, but I know there will be a few reposts with this one.
Drudge reports he's dead, FOX reports he's in a coma, L.A. Times says coma, CNN reports death.................who knows and who cares?
He makes number 3 though.......Ed Mcmahon, Farrah Fawcett and now, The Pedophile.
Yeah, if you want to throw MJ's name in there that'd be appreciated. Oops?
Ed will be missed. Farrah... meh. I hope she didn't suffer at the end, at least. Jackson, I don't care for however. At best he was insane. I feel sorry for those poor kids, having to wear those stupid freaking veils everywhere...
Think about the reaction this would have caused in 1985, 1990, 1995... There would have been mourning on a global level, candle lit vigils, people committing suicide, etc. There will still be a little of that, but it's just a sad life and legacy wasted.
But I'll just throw out there that even though I thought he was a creep, I wasn't at all convinced he had touched / hurt a child. Crossed the line for sure, but to be honest I'm still on the fence about the whole thing.
I work right by UCLA and there are tons of helicopters and people starting to gather.
I agree. I don't think he was mentally capable of molesting young boys. By the time those allegations came about, he had regressed to what could only be described as a 10 year old in a 40 year old's body. Anything that happened was purely innocent.
ok so hes dead....meanwhile back at the bat cave
Shit, Scrubbin_Bubbles, I wasn't aware you knew MJ so well.
Isn't it widely known that he was rundown a lot by his father?
A lot of artists, especially the greats, have done stupid shit in their personal life. Why is this any different?
Kids everywhere rejoice!
Thank god he's dead. Useless as far as I was concerned.
I'd love to see him dug up in 10 years or so to see what his face looks like then. My guess? The same.
