Cops carry out welfare check on Janet Jackson's infant son

Lemmy stated, "I wanted to do a version of 'Black Cat' with her, but Sony wouldn't let me. You could tell from the video that she was having a good time, that this loud rock music is what she really wanted to be doing. I love that fuckin' song.. Great fuckin' song that but the record company wouldn't let it be possible. It also contains elements of dance-rock , punk and arena rock throughout its production.

Chuck Campbell of The News Journal called it her "most intriguing track," saying "Miss Jackson relishes the role of a rocker with unexpected fervor. Stratton praised its "thundering bass. Modern Drummer called it a "guitar-fed workout," considered a "bristly rock song. Six weeks later, it reached number one on the chart. It was the third number one hit from Rhythm Nation and the sixth of the historic seven singles from the album to enter the top five.

It made Jackson the first solo artist to achieve two number one hits in the nineties. It peaked at number eleven in Ireland and fifteen in the United Kingdom, also reaching number sixteen in Sweden, eighteen in the Netherlands, twenty-five in New Zealand, and within the top thirty-five of Belgium and Germany. The song was ranked the ninth most successful single of the fall quarter in the United Kingdom, United States, and Germany by Hitparade.

The music video for "Black Cat" was directed by Wayne Isham. In addition to the audience for the sold-out show, the filming reportedly drew an additional 3, fans. The video uses an "in concert" theme, in a similar concept to other hard rock and heavy metal music videos of the era, being a departure from her heavily choreographed videos with various settings.

Spliced footage of a black panther is shown throughout the video. Jackson explained, "Black panthers fascinate me. They've become an obsession. During filming, we used a black panther who actually attacked his trainer. Don't ask me why, but I was never fearful. I feel a strange rapport with panthers. They've become an inner symbol. Maybe it's their beauty, maybe their danger, maybe the poetry of their movement. It's as though their strength protects me. Los Angeles Times called it "elaborately staged" and "meticulously detailed," considered among several "great showcases for Jackson's willingness to stretch beyond her public's conceptions of her.

And we can blame Janet Jackson for that. She's all the rage.. She's sexy , and you want to be sexy, too. That means lace-up boots, tight clothes, and killer dance moves. Jackson performed the song at the opening of the MTV Video Music Awards as her debut performance on the ceremony. During the performance, the singer ripped open her top to expose a black bra underneath, and became highly controversial in the media for its provocative nature, considered to usher in "a new age of sexual spontaneity.

MTV News explained halfway through her performance, Jackson "Although this was no wardrobe malfunction , it was a nonetheless shocking move.

So when I undid it - the whole thing went! It was performed on the Rhythm Nation World Tour , in a "pyrotechnic interpretation" which ends using illusionary magic of Jackson transforming into a panther in a cage. When they pulled it off, a real, live panther was prowling inside. The song was performed on all of Jackson's subsequent tours. Jackson's rendition on the Janet World Tour was praised for maintaining "familiar elements" such as its "feline choreography," endeavoring to "bring her MTV videos to life.

It was rock and roll. And I am all of those things. I think it hit me as a kid really hard, because I love to experience a fusion of musical genres. I can't even count how many times Selena and I listened to that single. So they were instilling and pouring into my soul the whole time. Stratton 's novel, Boxing Shadows. It was also used as the theme for the mascot of the Indiana Pacers.

Baby One More Time Tour. Sally Yeh also covered the song in Cantonese. Select releases include "The Megamix " as its B-side. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Imitating his moves, with my leather jacket and white glove. I just wish that I would have gotten the chance to have met him personally. My mother on the other hand has been a MJ fan forever. She listens to his music and videos on a daily basis. She babysits for a living and there isn't one of those kids that doesn't know every single MJ song ever written.

If there was ever anything negative said about Michael Jackson she would defend him to the end. He was her Idol and she cared greatly about this man. He has been a great role model and still will be forever. I have three kids and I can't wait to show them the most talented and loving person that ever lived. I send out my condolences to his family and friends. RIP Michael and hopefully one day I will finally have the honor to meet you!

Since the beginning of man kind, we have been blessed to have angels walk amongst us; Jesus, Mozart, Rembrant, Michael Angelo and Michael Jackson to name a few. As human beings we need to take a hard look at how we treat God's angels.

Why is it we ridicule what we don't understand. Michael Jackson was unique. He had a heart of gold filled with love and compassion for those that were less fortunate. There is not a human that has walked this earth that hasn't had or doesn't have flaws. Each and everyone of us could stand to be more like Michael — instead of ridicule we should be reaching out to those who need a helping hand. I loved and will always love MJ. Only in US people believed the money hungry monsters, outside US we all know it was an opportunity for them to get rich.

Thank you Miko for telling us about your friendship with Michael. It's nice to hear some positive information about him and his life outside the media stupidity.

I pray for your pain as well as the pain for his kids and family. My prayers are with all of you. I adore Michael and I know that he is looking down with a smile and saying to us in Heaven I will miss you Michael, and I know that your legacy will never die.

Thank you for the gift of music you left for all of us and our kids, our kids kids too. Those of us that really LOVE you will make sure of that!! For anybody that ever said any negative things about Michael Karma always comes back in some form or another!!!!!! Billy Mays did NOT have something hit him on the head when an airplane had a hard landing,go home and tell his wife he had a headache and was feeling groggy and go to go to bed only to die and have doctors say the cause of death was his HEART.

The cause of death was the same thing Liiam Neeson's wife died from when she visited Quebec to go skiing. Why the cover up? My nephew got married about a year and a half ago,the DJ played some Michael Jackson music and my sister and afew other girls. We danced like the monsters and while the music played , i noticed all the catering staff were watching us dance from around the corner ot the buffet room.

When we were done they all cheered and clapped. It was so much fun and we would like to thank Michael for giving us such fond memories wherever we were throughout the years when his music was playing.

Thank you Michael for the wonderfull memories. I Love Michael I will miss him dearly I wish me and my family had gotten a chance to see him I do not believe that Michael would ever hurt anyone people need to leave him alone and let him finally have peace that he muchly deservers I grew up with his music he was is and will always be the greatest he will always be in my heart I'll never forget how much of a kind caring giving loving person he was and I will always try to live like his heart for people and life that he lived Iam sorry that Michael will never know how much he really was loved by people I know heaven opened up the doors for him so maybe he does know and is smiling down upon us all My thoughts and prayers go out to his children and family people now need to think of what they say when it comes to his children please think of them now.

Thank you Mr King. Thank you, Miko for sharing your life and times with Michael Jackson with the world. Everyone should have a friend to speak canidly with, have a good belly laugh, cry a good cry, or just sit in silence.

A friend you can call anytime for anything and vice versa. I extend my condolences to you as well as his lovely family, All of his fans are grieving too, as we have grown up with him and loved MJ through his concerts, music, videos, interviews, and morsel that would come our way.

This is still something that seems so unbelievable to me. Ed Chernoff said that Dr. Murray knew how to do CPR. So why didn't he do it properly?? On the floor, not the bed. I agree with Sharon He doesn't even deserve their love.

I really hope Miko that you can do something about that. I'm sure her mom will be great, but this guy will still be around He is all business He loved her and the rest of his family, but pain and only pain came from the mention of his father's name Sad, I hope Michael will finally be in peace!

Thank you sharing your thoughts and experiences of your close friend Michael Jackson. I've been a fan of MJ for a long time However, what fascinated me most about him, more than his brilliance and tremendous talent, was his incredible kindness.

Even though I obvioulsy never got to know the person Michael Jackson, I always felt that he was a truly warm-hearted, kind and caring person My heart and prayers go out to his family, his children and to his true friends. It is a comfort to know that Michael had friends like you, and your father, Miko.

You have confirmed what people all over the world have always "known" about Michael. Bless you both for standing up for Michael, the man he chose to be, and the man he was — a shining star without equal here on Earth.

Michael was magic, and I'll take magic over normal every time. I hope that those who have persecuted and harassed this most gifted, loving man reap the malice they have sown and continue to spew like poison against Michael.

They can't touch Michael now or ever again. Michael probably forgives them; I never will. Where there is love. You're the man, Michael, and you always will be. Keep dancing and singing, Michael.

We're watching and listening. We love you, Michael. This is a very sad time for the entire Jackson family. It would be nice if all, but especially the press, be mindful of those three children, those babies, who have just lost their father. I'm sure the family is helping them cope with their grief and at the same, trying to shield them from all the press, both positive and negative, about their father.

I understand the press has a job to do, but I just hope that the family's feelings, especially his children, are taken into consideration during this time of mourning. Thank you Miko for being on Larry 's show. I am soo glad michael had a friend like you and i can tell that you are sincere when you speak of your friendship with Michael I pray that God will give you peace in your heart and comfort you in your loss of such a good friend.

I loved Michael and his music and i never believed those allegations! Michael had soo much love! Rest in peace Michael you will live forever in my heart and through your awesome music! I love Michael Jackson and I always will. I hope someday he can rest in peace and people will stop focusing on all the negativity and focus on all the talent this young man shared with all of the world. There will never be anoher Michael Jackson. I will keep his children in my prayers and pray that whoever takes care of them will think only of their welfare and treat them the same way their father did, with kindness and love.

Michael was and always will be a musical genius. We love you Michael and may you rest in peace. God Bless your children, family and your memory. You will never be forgotten. May you finally find your eternal happiness. Thank you micheal for all the beautiful songs. Thanks for letting us into your life and shareing it with us, the world has lost an amazing and talented man he gave everything he had to his craftand we thank you for that.

Let us not forget everything you did to help the worlds childrens from their pain and let also not forget how much of you time and money you gave away, you did'nt have to do that you could of just turn your back and look away like so many of us do but you did and i will like to thank you. When i listen to some of your songs like heal the world and the earth song i hear how much you truly care about what happen to this plant. Micheal i hope where ever you are tonight i hope you find peace i hope you get the respect in death that you could'nt get in life, may God bless and keep you safe until we meet again.

S to the girl angela how dare you said that if he loved his kids you would have stayed alive that is so wrong my mom loved me and she died even thou she wanted to stay alive for me but when it is your time to go you do not have a say.

That man single handidly is responsible for the way MJ ended up. He tortured that child and man and physically, psychologically and emotionally destroyed him. MJ has said since he was a small child with the Jackson 5 how he hated and feared his father.

He talked about how lonely he was and said numerous times that he wanted to die. He said in several interviews that his father made him vomit just by being in the same room with him.

Then the media tortures him and brings up his horrible memories and feelings and experiences by asking him the same painful questions over and over, and even after MJ asks them not too or starts crying they continue to talk about things that really upset him. The media is a bunch of PIGS too. Then MJ has everyone under the sun suing him for everything and anything.

Of course those kids made up the story about being molested by MJ. As a survivor of sexual abuse, I can tell you sexual predators do NOT molest two kids when they spend their entire life surrounded by kids.

There would have been hundreds of kids from all over the world with those claims and not just two. I would not be surprise if they made up having cancer too. I am sure their parents are slip and fall types and sue everyone for everything. MJ's two oldest kids can speak for themselves. They would tell if they saw or experienced anything like that. I doubt MJ ever let anyone see his body period.

I would not be surprised if the man died a virgin. You have to know what Vitaligo and Lupus does to your body to understand, but anyone who has suffered from an eating disorder or an OCD condition will tell you, you do NOT show our body to people. I do not think MJ ran around in the sun and on the beach covered from head to toe just to be weird and different. I truly believe he had conditions that made him feel it so necessary to hide his body.

His love of animals. Well that came from not wanting to be judged or criticized. Animals love unconditionally and as for him wanting to be around kids and stay a kid. I bet he never emotionally developed past about 10 years old. If MJ was anyone but who he was, he would have been receiving counseling and possibly taking medications to keep him chemically balanced and he would have gotten the help and intervention he so desperately needed. I wish he could have known me and some of his other fans personally cause I doubt we would have let his life spiral out of control the way the music industry leaches he was around did.

He spent his entire life being exploited and being used. His father called all the shots, and even with all the hell Joe Jackson put him through, MJ up to the very end strived for his love and acceptance.

The PIG was promoting his new record company and did not show a lick of humanity or grief toward his son. MJ was nothing more than a cash cow to him, and I am sure he is already trying to figure out how to get money with MJ's two sons now.

Joe Jackson wears sunglasses to hide the dollar signs in his eyes. Secondly, MJ really did suffer from Vitaligo, and some say he suffered from Lupus too which is a horribly debilitating disease. Both are triggered by traumatic events and I think this is just my opinion and I am no medical expert that when Jackson was burned during the Pepsi commercial that triggered the Vitiligo.

If you look back, you can probably notice that most of his changes and the time that he withdrew and started to appear and act different was after that accident. He also always hated how he looked not nly cause his father constantly told him how ugly he was when he was actually drop dead GORGEOUS but when he was young, black was not seen as beautiful in our society and so I am sure he was teased and taunted and he participated in what a lot of young blacks participated in which was straitening their hair, and lightening their skin and trying to make their facial features more European.

After he was burned, and had scars I am sure his eating disorder and BDD went out of control. Then he was in pain with both the burns and the Vitaligo and so he started using drugs to fight the pain and still be able to dance and then one thing led to the next and before you know it, he was no longer capable of making decisions or managing any aspect of his life.

The people who PUT themselves around him he was not choosing these people with a rational, or logical mind were determined to keep him as high as a kite so they could get him to sign checks and give them money.

Third, and finally, in my opinion, MJ decided to end it all. He was completely fed up and had nothing left in him to fight anymore. Anyone who says that he was in shape and healthy and all that are lying through their teeth.

The man was emaciated and weighed like pounds or something which is small even for MJ. The man was like 5 8 or 5 9. My son is 11 and weighs , and he has an athletic build. Then he was in a lot and I mean a lot of pain. He was not eating and had said many times he wanted to be dead. He was tired of Joe Jackson pulling his strings and he was tired of smiling on the outside while dying on the inside, and I think he went home from practice and took some pills, and laid down and went to sleep and for the first time in his almost 51 years finally got some peace, quite and rest.

I think that is one of the reasons he has allowed the media to take pictures of his kids lately. He knew he was no longer going to be around to protect and sheild them and so he wanted to get them used to being photographed by the media.

He himself, quit covering his nose and mouth. He no longer cared if he contracted something, cause he knew he was going home to God. I also hope that when the time comes for Paraside to return to earth, MJ is front and center doing his moon walk and his 50 degree lean and all his fans can walk up and hug him and tell him how much we love him and how worthy he is, First off thanks, Larry King for continuing to cover Michael Jackson's story and legacy; and not just simply forgetting him.

Miko, thank you for sharing with us in your own words; your private relationship which you had with your good friend MIchael. So sorry, for your loss as well; you are very fortunate more so than the rest of his fans to have known such a great performer, muscian, and human being. The way in which you described the relationship you and Michael had; suggests that the two of you were like brothers.

Listening to you Miko describe how great and kind a person Michael was; confirms the truth none of the media nonsense. You knew him better than many of his family members it seems. Thank you for sharing with us once again I am going to save this article; because, I beleive that you have the most honest definition of who Michael really was thankyou!!! Why was the doctor doing compressions on the bed? I'm not even a doctor and I know from a simple babysitting class that doing compressions for CPR on a bed is ineffective.

I have not heard anything about this blatant error in the news. MJ's doctor should get in trouble for malpractice. Thank you Miko for speaking to Larry's listeners about Michael. I am happy to know Michael had such a friend. I love you for telling the truth. I wish you peace of mind. Am sitting hear thinking about my childhood i lived with my grandmother and she did not have cable one day she came home with a copy of the jackson 5 album and she put it on to play me and my cousin sat on the front step and listen to his album it was wonderful to hear i fell in love from that moment with micheal eveything he did was great i dance to his music i make love to his music but most of all i cry to his music, when my mom past away it was his music that help me to grave with my lost so for that i say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

Time seems to slow down at first, like it's a dream, and — or — a nightmare. I am very aware of the mourning process, because of all the family that have Passed ON, in my life.

It seems like I have had to deal with a lot of loss. First, as a 7 year old kid, I lost my parents, then my great — grandmother passed, a few years later, my grandmother passed when I was a young mother. Then in , my son was shot and died, and finally, 3 weeks after my son passed on, my grandfather passed. So, you see I have had lots of time to mourn, and would like to try to help others at this time.

I think the family should have a private funeral. Have their time to mourn. Then make plans for a public memorial. The kids need peace right now. WE all share loss together, and hold each other up, at times like this. These are the things Michael would sing about. Michael Jackson is a living example of the Love and Life that God intends for us to have. He was one of the most giving and caring people that I myself have ever known anything about.

I have never heard of MJ being disrespectful towards anyone, I have only seen him give love and be persecuted. The media cares about no one. The paparazzi cares about no one or their own personal right to have privacy. And who gave Angela the right to judge anyone? You have no proof that Michael Jackson did anything harmful to anyone or himself. The post that you left is a prime example of the hatred and persecution that drives people in any famous position to doing harmful things to themselves, and hurting others while doing it.

You have no God given right to say that he did not deserve to have children. If he had no right to children, they would not be here on this earth breathing. God has once again called home on of his beautiful Angels sent here to do his work to rest. Regardless of what we may every know, God knows all and if it were not Michael's time, he would be here today.

Its refreshing to see someone be a true friend, and not try to damage their reputation just for 15 minutes of fame. It is my pleasure to post a comment!! Michael Jackson, if he died at the hands of drugs he was a victim of years of giving to everyone and not taking from them. I can say that all the lyrics in HIS songs have never promoted drugs or sexual mischief.

And not for his discretions he showed in his songs that he presented to our children. Judge not for one day you to will be judged. Miko's Blog and comments sound sincere Michael Jackson was obviously awe struck by Marlon Brando. Brando's children Miko included are products of the Hollywood dysfunctional family trees Remember Brando's other son, may he rest in peace, who shot their sister's lover-followed by the very public trial, incarceration and untimely death?

I'm sure Jackson felt some of the similarities in his friendship with the Brando family and Miko. I was also taken aback, but not surprised that Miko was and continues to be on Jackson's Payroll?

Michael certainly had extravagant tastes for spending May the "King of Pop" rest in peace This was the most beautiful letter written, you couldn't have said it any better. I never met him or ever attempted to meet him but I have been profoundly affected by his music and his family for all of my childhood and adulthood. His songs were my santuary. I always knew that he was about spreading LOVE to the people.

His illumination was also my shining example, this is why I try to tell people to love each other everyday because tomorrow is not promised to us all. Thank you for your letter and thank you to Larry King as well as Anderson Cooper for always bringing to us viewers such a shining and enlghtening coverage of the Jackson family and Michael Jackson's death, I really appreciate it and I hope other newscasters would follow his example. Also, I wish people would stop turning their noses up in the air as if they lead a seamless and perfectly error free life, do some introspection please people.

And if you are such a perfect human being then please take a look at your family tree, there you will see that you are related to people who are different or abnormal according to society's standards and you will see that they too hold different values than your own. Instead of being critical of another human being, I would work on myself first.

I had hope that Michael would someday be received well again with love and open arms especially by the American public prior to his death, still I am happy that he is receiving is due in death and hopefully the horrible scars left on his named will be removed in time with just PURE LOVE and adoration.

As far as everyone criticizing Joe's Jackson behavior, please leave the family alone. Everyone grieves very differently and some of us do not grieve the same for every death that occurs in the family. Please stop putting people in a box and let them handle situations as is.

Stop using professional theories to define people all the time. He was different like many geniuses of the past not abnormal or eccentric and he was a very special human being. He loved humanity wholeheartedly but their reception was not as he had hope or expected, therefore, the outcome could have created his embattlement which was exascerbated and and still is exaggerated by the media.

This could have led to what was considered by some to be so called bizarre behaviors and created his distrust which is okay under any circumstances generally in life. Many of us will never live the type of life he had lead, EVER, so who are we to scrutinize him for being himself. HE LED the life of a genius with a tortured soul which is typical of them all. It will probably take me the rest of my life to get over his untimely and tragic death.

I am glad to have been apart of this generation that was able to witness his life's body of work. I will have stories to hopefully tell my own children and grandchildren. His legacy speaks for itself.

His legend will live on for many generations. With what, the constitution? Shove your phony war on terror. They'll keep doing this crap as long as there's idiots out there that buy anything the G tells them. When you read these, and if you do more research, you will actually wonder how the man lived as long as he did. WOW did he suffer!! Individuals with very obvious and immediately-noticeable defects should not be diagnosed with BDD, however culture and clinician bias may play a significant part in the subjectivity behind determining what physical appearance is considered 'normal' and in whom the disorder is diagnosed.

The exact cause or causes of BDD is unknown, but most clinicians believe it to be a complex combination of biological, psychological and sociological factors. Onset of symptoms generally occurs in adolescence or early adulthood, although cases of BDD onset in children and older adults is not unknown. BDD is often misunderstood to affect mostly women, however research shows that it affects men and women equally.

The disorder is linked to significantly diminished quality of life and co-morbid major depressive disorder and social phobia. A person with the disorder may be treated with psychotherapy, medication, or both. BDD is a chronic illness and symptoms are likely to persist, or worsen, if left untreated.

Vitiligo is a relatively common chronic disorder that causes depigmentation in patches of skin. It occurs when the melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigmentation which are derived from the neural crest, die or are unable to function.

The precise pathogenesis, or cause, of vitiligo is complex and not yet fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors.

Non-segmental vitiligo has a greater prevalence than the disorder's other form s. The most notable symptom of Vitiligo is depigmentation of patches of skin that occurs on the extremities. Although patches are initially small in size, they can often start to enlarge and change shape.

When skin lesions occur, they are most prominent on the face, hands and wrists. Depigmentation is particularly noticeable around body orifices, such as the mouth, eyes, nostrils, genitalia and umbilicus. Some lesions have a tendency to hyperpigment around the edges. In a more general sense, vitiligo is similar in appearance to leprosy, and as such in countries where leprosy is prevalent , individuals with vitiligo can be stigmatized for the similarities in appearance.

Patients who are stigmatised for their condition may experience depression and similar mood disorders. New patches also appear over time, and can be generalised over large portions of the body, or localised to a particular area. Vitiligo where little pigmented skin remains is referred to as vitiligo universalis.

NSV can come about at any age, unlike segmental vitiligo which is far more prevalent in teenage years. Its treatment is also different to that of NSV. It tends to affect areas of skin that are associated with dorsal roots from the spine.

It spreads much more rapidly than NSV and, without treatment, patches of depigmented skin remain throughout life Lupus is an autoimmune disorder and it effects organ systems, skin, joints, and internal organs.

Lupus can effect both men and women, but it is eight times as likely in women. It can also occur at any age, but the typical age range for someone to get Lupus is ten to fifty. It is normally more common in African American people as well as Asian people. This is a disease that is usually hereditary, but in some cases there is no family history of Lupus. Lupus occurs when antibodies attack the healthy cells in the body. Certain drugs can cause Lupus as well.

Most cases have some family background to them, but in a few cases there is no apparent cause for the disease. The disease has been heavily researched and has been linked to other disorders, but only in theory, nothing is definitely stated for fact. Symptoms of this can vary in a wide variety of areas in the body. In the muscloskeletal area it affects the joints and causes mild to severe joint pain. Lupus is known to cause athritis in the hands. The skin is affected by rashes, skin lesions, and painful nodules that appear to be raised bruises.

Kidneys produce protein deposits and can have renal failure, leading to dialysis. The Nervous System can cause mental dysfunction, seizures, psychosis, and severe headaches. Blood clots can occur as well as pulmonary embolism. The heart could produce chest pain, endocraditis, and myocarditis. Which the symptoms in the heart could also have something to do with the effects Lupus has in the blood, with the clotting that can occur.

Shortness of breath and even pleurisy can occur within the lungs due to Lupus. Because we are paying respect to Michael Jackson, doesn't mean that we have forgotten the women, men, Iraqi civilians, reporters and those in Afganistan, etc who have lost their lives!

My suggestion, if the coverage and conversations about Michael are too uncomfortable for you, turn the channel. I agree with your mindset.

TOO Bad for their lonely existence. It will take a long time before we fully understand his colossal impact on the modern art and culture today. Anderson just asked MJ's pass lawyer what he think happened I am not sure why, since we all see the negative media pushed him to his death through all the stress I know Anderson have done a lot of charity work and he is an extremely kind person, but there is other media outlets out there that are only interested in the negative..

I hope as a spiritual woman, she stays away from the media and grieve for her some with the help of her other kids I was never a true MJ"s fan Michael seemed to be such a kind, gentle soul and such a giver, always trying to heal the universe through music. Giving his all — his heart and soul in his music -with the hopes of changing the world for the better To find someone to compare Michael's kindness and gentleness of spirit, the one person that comes to mind is Mother Theresa, for her years of undeniable giving of herself unselfishly; that to me describes Micheal, giving his ALL, for most of his life So few left in our society, in our world with those unselfish qualities.

I'm very familiar with grief. My plan was to see him in the United States because I have always missed his concerts. I've loved him since Miko, thank you for sharing your intimate memories with us.

I know it is hardest for his family aand friends I believe that God sent us this beautiful, caring, angel, Michael, to help us learn to accept each other We are all grieving right now because we will miss the physical Michael, but I take solace in knowing that he is not in any pain physcially or mentally and that he is with GOD.

I understand the medias job to report everything Now as a mother of 2 young children Michael is at peace now and his children will be loved and cared for whomever they are with, because the world will be watching. Miko, I'm sad for you to lose your best friend. I too have suffered a loss of a loved one due to cancer. Your loss will never subside or go away.. As time passes it becomes a bit softer and does not hurt as much as it does today, We all loved and respected Michael especially for his immense talent and integerity.

May we always remember the power of this bright star and entertainer. God Bless you Michael, we shall miss you, but never forget you. Miko, I pray these following days, weeks and months you will remember the good times you shared with Michael and know you will be together again.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say "GoodBye" You were gone before I knew it. My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you- No one can ever know. But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more: To remember all the happy times, life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today- A hollowed place within my heart is where your'll always stay. I've been going on just about everyones blog and reading the good and bad about Michael Jackson. I don't have the words to express how sadden i'm to know that his man Michael Jackson has gone to the angels. Michael Jackson song "Gone to soon" should be played in remembering him cause he wrote it and he's gone to soon.

Michael Jackson what a wonderful performer and dancer what a shame that we couldn't show him how much he was loved when he was alive. Michael Jackson is that shining comet light going across the sky making music up in heaven and having concerts up in heaven.

Miko, i'm sorry for the loss of your dearest friend,brother Michael Jackson will never be forgotten he'll live on forever,forever.

My prayers go out to Miko and his family. Michael Jackson their was only one superstar like him and know other star who could dance like Michael Jackson. Last night Gerlado Rivera had a panel of experts on with the four possible causes of death. The forth was murder by the concert promoters who realized Jackson could not perform the concerts. Allegedly they had insurance that covered his life. I am a regular CNN viewer. Why have I heard zero from CNN on murder as a possible cause of death?

God bless you Michael Jackson, the world as a whole finally knows your worth, I love you Michael. Hi Miko, Thank you very much for taking the time to write that, especially at a time when you must be so full of shock and grief. I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences go out to you and the rest of Michael Jackson's friends and all of his family.

I have many childhood memories of Michael Jackson.
