Went to see him and his brothers and the CNE stadium in the mid 80's...top 3 lifetime concert, if not #1!!! Such a talent, such a loss to so many...his kids, family and friends. I wish he would have found happiness before now...:sad:

I also read this story.

He was definitely a great entertainer but his private life gave me the creeps.

I agree...his personal life gave me the creeps too, but I didn't know the facts...none of us did...just what the media thought would sell air time, but there is usually some truth to start with beofre it is blown out of porportion (sp?)...so talented and so screwed up.

I wonder who is going to take care of his children...I know they have nannies, but I don't know how much of his estate is really left to pay them for long...they always look so sad now that their masks are off...if anyone needed a hug from someone NOT looking for money or fame, it was that little family.

Guess you all knew Farrah Fawcett died today also. Her suffering is finally over, may she rest in peace. I adored this lady.

I got in my car at 5 pm , they said he was in critical condition ,.... but the time I got near home he was dead .... I'm really sorry for him , he had a screwed up life. :rip:

I think it's sad this happened on the same day , everyone is overlooking this because of "bigger" news ..... she was a cool lady. :rip:

Lia12 many people were fans of this lady too and I for one am sooooo happy that all her suffering is over.

I think the difference in reactions is that she has been suffering for several years and all week the reports have been that her death was imminent.

This whole Michael Jackson thing came right out of the blue. If you watched any of the Entertainment news shows (which are taped) they all had tributes to Farrah tonight and no word of MJ. In fact it was difficult to even get confirmations of his death.

Ed McMahon also died this week...so they do come in threes :sad:

RIP Ed McMahon:candle:, you wonderfully delightful, generous human being!

RIP Farrah, you brave soul, thank you for sharing your battle with us, you are the epitomy of courageous :candle:

RIP Michael Jackson, King of Pop :candle:, your music was awesome, I grew up listening to your tunes, dancing to Thriller at my Highschool dances.
It's so unfortunate that your life seemed to become such a huge struggle, legally and financially. May you finally be at peace.

I am totally in shock, I really don't even know what to say. Even though he became a bit (a lot) of a freak these past few years, I still love all of his music. He really was a legend in many ways.

I'm not surprised. Look at how he abused his body with all the surgery and pills. Well according to the news reports anyway about the pills. I don't think anyone will know for sure.

At least the kids won't be required to hide behind masks any more.

He did great music and had some awesome dance moves.

But he must have been hurting inside. Hope he's at peace now.

My King Of Pop,will always be Elvis,not Michael Jackson.
But Michael certainly made a great impact on the world with his huge talent.
To be honest I always expected to hear he had died,he was a tormented sad soul in his later years:sad:
:rip:Michael

Farrahs brave documentary was wonderful,incredibly sad,a brave lady fighting a losing battle.
:angel2:go with the angels Farrah
