Michael Jackson Tribute: Gone Too Soon


Words are not even good enough to describe Michael Jackson. For 80's babies like myself, we were born into the era of Michael Jackson when he was already becoming legendary. All we know as it relates to pop icon status is Michael and he has been with us our entire lives.

"Thriller" came out the year I was born, and I remember being barely 6 years old running to the tv to sneak and watch the video/mini-movie each and every time they showed it on tv. I was scared out of my mind and had nightmares each and every time I watched it. But I couldn't stop watching it. It took me a few years to realize Michael himself wasn't really a zombie vampire--you couldn't tell me he wasn't. That's how compelling he was. It's an almost impossible pill to swallow when an era of your life has ended and especially so abruptly.

I am a huge advocate of true talent and having a purpose when one has such influential power. MJ was one of the very few who embodied those things. Michael IS the music video era and he IS the definitive example of a pop culture humanitarian icon who has single handedly influenced the entire world. But even though Michael's gone, we still can remember his sacrifices as a child to give us the music we love and the talent that not one person can or ever will replace.

This post will remain the top story today with a few posts on other news posted beneath it. But for now, we're posting our favorite videos, favorite pictures, and favorite memories of the King himself. All positive and fabulous energy here:

Random MJ Trivia:

 

    Favorite superhero: Morph from X-Men

    Reason he wore the black arm bands: Symbolizes the suffering of children around the world.

    First music video by a black artist on MTV: MJ's "Billie Jean"

    Records sold worldwide: Approx. 750 million (this record number is pretty much untouchable). Thriller alone has sold over 55 million.

    Jackson owned a patent for a stage show device that allows him to lean forward and appear to defy gravity.

    Favorite fairy tale is Peter Pan as he said he never wanted to grow up.

    Despite his limited academic achievements--through benefit concerts and other activities--he donated millions to the United Negro College Fund and founded the Michael Jackson Scholars program.

Thank you for such a

Thank you for such a fabulously well put expression of loss and appreciation for the greatest entertainer to ever walk the earth. He will always be with us as long as we continue to sing his praises and allow his music to provide the soundtrack to our lives. I'm so ridiculously sad and can't stop crying these past few days, but it's definitely helped to share the grief with other fans and know that we're all togteher in our love and absolute admiration for MJ. Let's keep his music relevant and in the ears of our children and our children's children! Viva Michael!!!! We love you and may your music live on forever!!!

Thank you Tasha, like you I

Thank you Tasha, like you I am also an advocate for true talent and michael was it for me no matter what people say about his personal life no one can deny he was a true artist,from the dancing performances the songs I mean who else is going to sell 750 million records! not the nonsense stars we have 2day, I was born in 81 and my first memory of michael was the song bad I am from london and was so excited for his come back tour it wasn't meant to be, I hope he finds peace because the media demonised him in the past 15 years, the last time I remember this kind of public outcry was when princess diana died, he touched so many people RIP mj

Michael Jackson really did

Michael Jackson really did have the Midas touch!!! Everything he did was a hit and turn gold. A true icon indeed because NO ONE will ever have touch his status and legacy, he deserve every bit of this trubute and love from the fans. His music is true part of American Hisotry and he touch most of our lives from childhood to adulthood. He single handly influence every artist today, no one can say that. Michael, boy you will always be bad!!!!!

As per MSNBC: Police

As per MSNBC: Police investigating Michael Jackson’s death looked into his medical treatment Friday, seeking to interview one of the pop king’s doctors and seizing a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. As medical examiners began an autopsy for Jackson, police towed a BMW from Jackson’s rented home “because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death,” police spokeswoman Karen Rayner said. She said the car belongs to one of Jackson’s doctors whom police wanted to interview. Rayner stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation. The Los Angeles Times has identified the physician as Dr. Conrad Murray, 51, a Las Vegas cardiologist, and reports that Murray was administering CPR to Jackson when paramedics arrived. The manhunt has begun! Trust he will be dead before Michael's wake!

Veritas: I am still hoping

Veritas: I am still hoping that is the night of the 24th I am still asleep and maybe this is a nightmare soon enough it is going to be the 25th of June and Michael will still be alive.I mean what can I say about Michael? I heard someone saying that MICHAEL IS MUSIC and I thought that was the best description of him. And the people who say he is one of the best artists- NO he is not one of, HE IS THE BEST EVER!! There is nobody compared to him, nobody as far as I am concerned will ever get to that level in my life time. Whether one likes it or not I say they will never be an Icon like him, someone who is loved and idolized by so many people through out the world. I didn’t grow up in America but still I learnt about Michael Jackson from listening to my parents LP’s -OFF THE WALL I will never forget that. I really never understood what the lyrics meant or how they were pronounced because I didn’t speak English; but I would still sing out loud in gibberish. It really didn’t matter whether I understood the lyrics or not, the songs just made me happy and excited.I fell even more in love with Michael after watching Thriller. I have to admit at such a young age the video scared the hell out of me but I would still watch it over and over again and sleep with the lights on. After thriller I convinced my young self that If I prayed enough I would one day get married to Michael Jackson-he was idol and I absolutely adored him. I would watch his videos in a trance.And I grew to admire him more from watching the “Making of We are the World” after seeing that I truly believed that this guy really wanted to heal the world-he was an angel.The black or white video was also another one of my favorite-I was really impressed by the vision and artistry of his videos, they were beyond and still are way above anything I have seen. Michael created Music videos as we know them today but still not to his standards.My greatest dream of mine was to see Michael in concert, I was hoping that after he is done with the London shows , he will change his mind and hold more concerts in the US. But well that dream will never be realized but his music still lives on in my heart.Regarding the negative comments that you see popping here and there just ignore them CHANGE THE CHANNEL don’t watch it. That is how the media survives especially in the USA - it operates on the negativity, rumors and half truths. Nobody except for those few who are hoping to make a buck really cares about listening to his legal troubles. With all the achievements in his life and the lives he has touched who would one want to focus on the negative, we have all heard them before so you are not telling us something new so It is time to zip it and give due respect to this great icon.And fans brace yourselves prepare to be even more upset when all kind of books about him are going to come out of the woodworks. Tell all from from people who were around him. There will be book deals TV shows movies, music covers. Michael has been one of the most exploited artists out there -you wanna make a back , sue Michael and he will still be the most exploited after his death. I SAY BOYCOTT ALL TELL ALL PUBLICATIONS, APPEARANCES, TV SPECIALS E.T.C. YOU ALREADY HAVE YOUR AUTHENTIC GREAT MEMORIES OF MICHAEL WHY TARNISH THEM BY LISTENING, READING TO ALL THAT GARBAGE ABOUT HIM.You know I think it is sad how the American way is to build people up and then tear them down. When you appreciate someone show it do not be half assed about it; yesterday you couldn’t wait to crack up a joke about him and today he is dead and you suddenly realized how precious each single day is-the days you spent ridiculing him.So now you have all these other incredible artists left nobody like him though so think twice before you start bad mouthing them on things that have nothing to do with their talent and artistry.I think the Japanese were the best fans Michael has ever had, they stuck with him through thickness and thin. I can’t say that much about the American fans.I really feel sad but I can’t cry, maybe if I did I will feel better. It is hard losing someone that you have never met, touched it is almost like he was a fig of your imagination. So how do you get over that?It is sad that this man despite of all the love people had for him, all the positive energies that were directed towards him, he died a lonely man; a man with no true friends. Many said they were his friends but where where they when he was hurting? When my friend is going trough tough times- I am there in a second. This makes me very sad, I wish I was his friend,I wish I could have been there for him but well these are now just wishes. THERE ARE TOO MANY MICHAEL SONGS THAT I LOVE IT IS HARD TO PICK A FEW BUT HERE WE GO: Heal the World, The Way You Make Me Feel, Keep it in the Closet, Ben, Heart Break Hotel, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, P.Y.T. Can’t Stop Till Yo Get Enough, You are Not Alone, Billie Jean….So Michael thank you for the great memories and the music and I will always strive to keep your memories and your music alive. YOU ARE HOME NOW, REST IN PEACE AND SLEEP WITH THE ANGELS-YOUR TRUE FRIENDS. You are so right!! Black folks think we was Michael's #1 fans...baybayyyy...oh hellll naw!! The Japanese do NOT play when it come to MJ!! You might can name 20-30 songs... They could probably tell you how many ounces of urine he pumped out per day... :lol:

I still cant believe that man

I still cant believe that man is gone :-( LOVE YOU ALWAYS MIKE! KING of MUSIC! Today is a sad day for many and those who are sad knows what true artists and entertainment is: Elvis is a theif.. How can you be great if you have to steal your dance moves and songs from others? Elvis was always stealing underground black music. To what degree i dont know because it was all hush hush but to date his greatest songs have been said to come from our people. I just watched Cadilac records the other day they made a small reference to him stealing dance moves. Elvis had many fans mostly blue eyed ones. MJ was loved by All!!! he’s the kind of all that was is and will continue to be music….. THANK YOU!..no disrespect to Elvis but "KING" my ass..that man was a racist, and he stole music from BLACK people (like you said) ^ smh!

Today is a sad day for many

Today is a sad day for many and those who are sad knows what true artists and entertainment is: Even the haters still loved Jay to and had an obsession. Nothing they say do can hever hurt his fan base or stop his music. He was the shit his alnbums sales speak for itself!.. not to mention he owns a share in the beatles, M&M’s and other great investment. The man aint no fool… Let them keep talking most of them are crackers that are just mad because none of their people can ever ever do what he did even Elvis the king of stealing music and moves. Elvis was a big time racist and most of his die hard fans are white. Jackson was loved by all. They cant handle that.. like i said Even jesus had a hater and he only had 12 friends.. The great people in life always are hated upon First off - lemme show you how Elvis & MJ DON'T COMPARE! Name 10 Elvis songs off the top of the dome..........(tick, tick, tick) can't right? You know we can name more than 10 MJ songs that are our favorites! Cuz we can't pick just 1 favorite.

Ms. REaL: Not trying to

Ms. REaL: Not trying to sound or be negative but I was just wondering what did Micheal do for the black community? I am 22 so I didn’t really grow up in the micheal era. I was looking through a slide show with all of his pictures from when he was a kid to now and I just see him striving to be a white person all of his life. Again i’m not trying to be negative I just want a better understanding. I mean alot of ppl replied but basically Michael contribution for the black community wasnt just in his charity work and donations. It was simply about being him; the barriers that he broke and the doors that we can open so we can see all these rubbish artistes on MTV...MJ was the first black guy on MTV..Michael inspired everybody..even BIG when he was young with his mom who was jamaican and used to play alot of MJ songs an stuff. MJ touched everybody...mad posers looking for attention. Talking about his case and all that is irrelevant. It happened; jury of his peers made a decision and thats that. Surprised that MJ even got haters but they fake cause all yall tried to moonwalk at some point or do that anti gravity lean from Smooth Criminal..quit hatin on the greatest entertainer of all time..if you aint got nun good to say be quiet

There are no words to describe what an influential man he was. Michael Jackson will never die. There will be no one greater than him as an artist. We were all blessed to live in the same era as him. Greatness never dies.

LSU GYRL: I actually like

LSU GYRL: I actually like the Beatles. I have a few of their cds but they werent from “my” time. Half of them were dead by the time I knew their music. If Prince kicks the bucket…who do we have left? And dont yall DARE say Beyonce! I’m fighting today behind that shit for real… Ohh Lawd...please don't say Prince - I would be done for if we lost him too, I'm barely holding on as it is... And a big 'ol NIGGA PLEASE on Beyonce - she needs to put in about 20 more years and sell at least half of the 750 mili albums that MJ sold before she even comes close...real talk.

Hey everyone...go to YouTube and search for "Michael Jackson - Billie Jean - 30th Anniversary Special". It made me smile!! That was a true performance, not this BS that we see nowadays. That's the Michael I remember!

Today is a sad day for many

Today is a sad day for many and those who are sad knows what true artists and entertainment is: Elvis is a theif.. How can you be great if you have to steal your dance moves and songs from others? Elvis was always stealing underground black music. To what degree i dont know because it was all hush hush but to date his greatest songs have been said to come from our people. I just watched Cadilac records the other day they made a small reference to him stealing dance moves. Elvis had many fans mostly blue eyed ones. MJ was loved by All!!! he’s the kind of all that was is and will continue to be music….. King*
