We all know that Michael Jackson died a couple weeks ago. I don't intend to offend Michael or his fans, but in my opinion we need to get over his death. Every channel I go to on TV it talks about him and it's been many weeks since his death. They're always saying, "Rest in peace Michael Jackson." and such. I respect Michael and his fans, but seriously...I think we all know now that we want michael to rest in peace and we hope he does.

I hope all you guys out there won't think i'm being rude or offensive! I just want to make a point! He's gone and he won't be coming back...

i think michael jackson is way overrated. even though its been a year people are still obsessing over him. I wont deny that he was talented but there are way way better musicians out there.

I completely agree! There has been too much talk about his death...and I get it, he was a legend, and I was a semi-fan too, but yeah. Wherever I go, people were always talking about it, so yeah, they needed to stop.

Michael Jackson is a legend, some people still can't believe he died. People do talk alot about his death though. Im not really sure if i agree or disagree.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

anyone that "committed suicide for michael jackson" already had major issues and probably would have offed themself for some other silly reason anyway, without michael's death.

My personal favorite quote would have to be; "Don't judge a book by its cover."

I believe that it is perfectly ok for people to still talk about Micheal Jackson. He was a LEGEND! He was the king of pop! I loved his songs and everything. If you have watched his "testimony" at the court, he is only guilty of being hot. He is and was hot. Sure, he did a few surgeries, but that is no reason to look down on someone. Dolly Parton is another example. A lot of people do wierd things, but who knows why!! So I say, who cares!!!

I agree. I love MJ and all his music, but come on. Lets be reasonable. He was just a man. It was ok the first couple of weeks, but after that, it was just too much.
