Just found its MJ's birthday today. Happy Birthday to the guy, sadly missed by the world!
oh god here comes the flame war!
but yeah, i miss him
Everyone will have their comments about MJ. I thought he was a legend.
hes a tit and always was.
loving how people can make judgements about a guy they knew through exaggerations in the media.
Strange fella he was but he was a legend still. Media + Press are a bunch of twats! No arguement about that one.
glad someone's on the same lines as me, he's defo not normal, but i cant blame him after having 33 years of media up his arse all the time.
sorry didnt realise he was your mate.
I watched a documentry on him a while back. He has had a bodyguard at his side since he was 4 years old! The media really make me sick, they kill people.
he's not i just dont agree with stupid slating of anything, when no one can accurately judge the situation.
Its always going to be difficult to judge a situation like this, there is an awful lot of media coverage both positive and negative, there have been accusations, none proven, settled of court, what does that actually mean? could be he was admitting his guilt or because he had more money than the sultan of burnai he could afford to make it go away? (we are not talking about Gary Glitter here, who was accussed and has been to prison, for example)
No of us knew the man, no of us knew what happened in his messed up personal life.
So personally, I think focus on the man's music and what he did best, performing it, and lets judge him for that and that alone and for that reason alone, I am genuinely sad he is gone, and did not get a chance to play the 'last' shows and release the new material.
He was surrounded by people telling him he was amazing, special and magnificent - so much so he started to actually believe it.
I find it difficult to imagine how you can think he was not amazing, or magnificent?!
