It's so weird...

that Michael Jackson is dead.

I know the media is eating up every minute of it, but it is a big deal.

I was and am a huge MJ fan. I grew up listening to "Beat It", "Thriller" and "Bad". My mom and I used to have dance parties in my living room to Off the Wall. I remember watching his concerts on TV and wishing I could be there, but also wondering why so many people kept passing out? People don't pass out anymore like they used to.

I remember dancing to his music at weddings and parties. Even though I didn't actually know him, I feel like I did. I know that may sound weird, but I don't care. I really do miss him.

I wish people would move on concerning all of his bad press. Don't dwell on things you'll never know, and frankly isn't your business. Yes, he grew up in the spot light and God only knows how that scarred him, but as a performer- no one will ever compare. God gave him an amazing talent and I am so grateful he was able to share it with me.

I completely agree and I know what you mean about feeling like you knew him. I think he just had a way of making his fans feel so connected to him. It really is hard to believe he is gone.

I agree 100%. I watched the memorial and cried through the entire thing. I was devastated. I was running and Man in the Mirror came on and I teared up again! Who knew he meant so much to me and everyone else?!
