I agree with you but at the same time, "He's the King of Pop." Statistically he's had the greatest influence on the world through his music.

But I can name three to four other groups/artists that were more influential.

I like his music, but this memorial just went too far.

Actually, this past week of coverage went too far.

I'm sorry people, but i'm getting sick and tired of all the news broadcasts talking about MJ. he's been dead for what, like 2 weeks now, and he's still getting more attention than anyone (or anything for that matter) out there.

It was sad, it sucks he's gone. But the media needs to fucking drop it. I know he was the king of pop, but they need to let the guy rest in peace.

He was by all means an Icon, Legend you can say. There are very few people alive today you can call an Iconic Symbol in this life. When one dies its gonna be as if a King died. It should be expected.

Anyway, I watched his memorial service. I got a little tear eyed. When his daughter made a statement, that was indeed a very sad moment.


Everythings gonna cool down after today really.

Not at all. He's not being buried with his brain and the location of where he is gonna be buried has yet to be disclosed. We'll get more coverage until he gets buried.

well now i don't see how the memorial went too far,
but everyone is well aware that the news coverage
kinda overdid what should have been shorter, as
compared to bigger news around the world. A lot of
ppl around the world are mourning for him, so it's not
a wonder as to why his memorial would be so huge.
I'm pretty sure that many musicians who died were
influential, but if they were more influential, then they'd
either receive the fair amount of treatment, or more and
unfortunately that's hasn't been the case. I think, just
like everyone else, that the news on him needs rest, so
that MJ can finally be in peace. If i were one of his loved
one's, i'd be tired of seeing him on TV and ppl talking about
him good, or bad.

I think that just as the news is going too far on their coverage of
him, the ppl are going too far with their remarks about him as well.

Discuss. No flaming about him, either. I must say i got teary at most parts, but the thing that really almost got me was when paris went up. Poor girl.

Oh leave it alone already.
He's dead. Huge loss to the music industry.

Let it stay that way.
The whole memorial BS is starting to get annoying.

He'll be missed. I just hope this epidemic will end within the next week or so.
There are more important things to worry about.

If Prince ends up dying, I think I'll go a little bit insane, however.

I agree with you, even though I like MJ's music as well.
Yeah, he was the King of Pop and he was a big icon, but there's more important stuff out there than his death. Really, whenever I turn on the news, it's all I see.

Anyway, as for the funeral itself, I didn't cry since I don't really know him, but I was really close to crying when I saw his daughter up there, and started crying before she made a statement.

Finally.

I wish we can stop talking about MJ when there's people being massacred in Iran but that doesn't seem to be focused upon as much

What made it go too far? i loved it. and who was more influential than him (not trying be like "up in your face" or anything.

A two hour televised memorial after all the news coverage he was already getting? I mean it was an okay memorial, but the fact that they even had one that was so widely televised bothered me.

The Beatles, basically.

True, al the media has been talking about was him. THATS what is annyoring. The memorial, however, i thought was just fine. I mean, they said 1 billion+ people watched it, not to mention the 20,000 there. He was a really important guy, but i think the media is getting a bit out of hand, not the memorial. The only people that performed and talked there were all either really good friends of him or his family. There's a reason why they called him "The Black Elvis."

the man was (accused, but almost definitely) a pedophile!

The funny thing is that no one ever seems to drop the pedophile card.
People can be so strongly adamant on the negative side of a person
as compared to their good side. Now i know for certain that Michael Jackson
has made some questionable decisions in his life (who hasn't), but it doesn't make
him any less human. He was eccentric and the outcome of his questionable lifestyle
can be considered through his past. Here you had a man who was forced to
grow up so early in his childhood, that he didn't have one of his own. People
tend to forget that ppl are innocent unless proven guilty, and their never was
evidence, besides the fact that he gave kids wine. If you've ever met or
understood someone who is of old age, and still has a child mentality to them,
then you can surely understand why he acted the way he did. In essence he was
a child, and kids identified with that, I mean he had an amusement park in his
backyard. Now adults can considerably see an opening for lawsuit because of
his lifestyle, only because it was so easy. Ppl do it almost everyday. If they have
the chance to file a lawsuit against a company or a celebrity etc. they will do it,
because it's money in their pockets. The kid with cancer is the perfect example.
MJ simply payed off for his treatment, any further with the trial and the media
would just escalate things even further (also noted that none of the other kids
witnessed any of the accusations given in that trial). Negating is something the media
can feed on because the public so strongly resides on the negative (you only come to
realize, that he who accuses a sin is merely a sinner themselves). It happens to
everybody who is strongly open to the public: Jon & Kate, Britney Spears, Lindsey
Lohan, Octomom, although for Jon & Kate, and Octomom, it's practically the only
way to care for all those damn kids, disregarding the way the economy is. People
tend to forget that sure there are celebrities who have an influence to the world,
but MJ had an influence in places even a small amount of ppl in America, Europe,
etc. would never dare set foot on. He provided charity to a mass amount of ppl
around the world, before live-aide, farm-aide, and far before Bono himself. Now
that might not make him an important person to everyone necessarily, but he did
his part in this world, and it was a lot more than the majority will ever achieve. His
memorial was very well deserved, maybe not his news coverage, but his memorial
was a well put last moment for MJ to be praised by the masses once more. Their wasn't
even a riot for all the ppl that were there(even the people from across the streets didn't
bother to pass through the borders of his Memorial). It was that well done. So if theirs
shit else people would like to negate, why don't you get your head out of your
asses and find out all the good things he has done, instead of strongly adhering to
the media's negative cesspool of shit faced accusations.

Unless you knew MJ, Jon and Kate, or Octomom personally, you have no reason to flame me (which, unless you didnt read the first post, you'd know is the only rule of this thread).

So, where should I start: how about how he dangled his child from a balcony and fed them wine (which you stated; a contradiction to your own argument). Also, you seem to miss the part when I wrote accused and almost definitely. I never said he did it, I said I believed he did it.

Also, you said he 'paid off' the kid with cancer. I wonder why that was? To keep his mouth shut, perhaps? People don't drop the pedophile card because it's kind of a big thing.

And all of this amounts to NOTHING when you realize that I DON'T hate MJ, and I'm NOT following the popular belief. What happened happened, and there's no amount of arguing that can change that.

wow, i didn't flame :/
i specifically pulled out your post because it seemed
to be the only one standing firm on his pedo side. Now
i could just say Atticus is an idiot, but i didn't did I? How
you correlated this between the mention of having a
personal relationship of the celebrities given in my previous
post doesn't make much sense. The idea or the post wasn't
about personally knowing the celebrity.

So, where should I start: how about how he dangled his child from a balcony and fed them wine (which you stated; a contradiction to your own argument). Also, you seem to miss the part when I wrote accused and almost definitely. I never said he did it, I said I believed he did it.
contradiction...? to what?!
my post was about focusing from the negative
and looking into the positive. As i said before, his
choices in life where questionable, and he was eccentric,
but it doesn't make him less human. What exactly were
you getting at...?

Also, you said he 'paid off' the kid with cancer. I wonder why that was? To keep his mouth shut, perhaps?

another person so adamant on the negative side.....
I think you're the one who seems to make it out as if
you have a more personal relationship with MJ. Care to
give any more reasons as to why he would pay off those
families besides the one you gave...

And all of this amounts to NOTHING when you realize that I DON'T hate MJ, and I'm NOT following the popular belief. What happened happened, and there's no amount of arguing that can change that.

you just said you believed he did it? Isn't that the more
popular belief besides "maybe he did it, or maybe he didn't"
You largely missed the point, and i think it best if you didn't
respond any further :/

NOT FUCKING SPIRA, THATS FOR SURE!
It reminded me when Princess Diana died when I was little and I couldn't watch some of my cartoons cause the news kept talking about her. The media coverage does bother me a bit but I expect it, when someone that big and controversial dies the media just goes crazy for a while, would like to know what's happening in Iran though...

same here, the hostility in Iran is so dangerous.
People are killing their own people, and the problem
is only gettiing worse. It is good that the people are
standiing up for themselves, but everything turned
out chaotic. I'd be happy to get the news on the rest
of the world ASAP, because even though MJ's death
is tragic, it happened so suddenly, it just sucks that
it happened around this time, where bigger things are
happening.
