you guys can call him a retarded child molester all you want, but admit it. that man did more for music in general than any of you could ever do. just because you dont like someone as a person doesnt mean that their music is horrible. a few bad deeds are no reason to condemn a man to endless ridicule when he is one of the most recognized musicians ever to walk the face of the earth. what have you done for the global pop music scene lately? how many albums have you sold? this isnt about honoring what the man did outside of his musical career, or about parading a child molester. he had a family and friends who saw through his faults and loved him just like the rest of us do. and millions of fans to boot. its about honoring his accomplishments in the field of music and performance

A "few bad deeds?" he hung a child from a window and possibly molested and or sexually abused some kids. That's pretty bad in my book. A bunch of Hitler's art just sold for a **** ton of money, does that mean I forgive him because he was a successful artist?

celebrating the LIFE of a ****ed up individual like him shows what is wrong with people's priorities. his career is one thing, but this ****ing circus that we see right now is a waste of time, money and effort
You're a ****ing idiot.

Yes, let's just ignore the fact that everyone was making fun of this guy non-stop for the past 18 years and he became the biggest punchline ever. He MADE some great music, good for him. It wasn't that relevant until he died. Most people will remember him as the ****ed up individual that he was. The surgeries, the lawsuits, the horrible parenting, etc have become what Michael Jackson is about. People just like to romanticize people when they die, the truth is too hard to deal with, so lets focus on his quality music that was made over 20 years ago.

Stop comparing him to Hitler, its not the same situation.

I enjoy seeing everyone get a massive hard on for Jackson all of a sudden, shows how ****ing stupid most people are.

Actually last time I checked, 750 million was right between a billion and 500 million.

popularity=/= quality

and records sold is a reflection of population numbers as well. Does how much money a movie makes make it a better movie? Is the Hannah Montana movie better than The Godfather?

You people are flat out retarded for arguing about how many cds he's sold. It is completely irrelevant.

Next to the Michael Jackson is Dead video on the first page. I enjoyed it.
But that's not a statement, that was a video, but they are both good highlights.
