    The death of Jackson, Tupac, and Ledger shocking? I don’t think so! “Expected” would be the more appropriate term, or even “Later than expected.”

  2. Frank says:

    Poor, sweet Michael. The article should start off with “World pop idol” and not limit him to the US. He ruled for decades and was the most famous person in the world and will always be the number one entertainer of all time.

    More than him unmatched talent in music and dance, his big heart for helping those in need, particularly the most vulnerable members of society which are children and animals, make him such a beautiful human being.

    The world will always love and miss Michael!

  3. Patrick Henry says:

    Wonder if he is beating it right now in hell for all the bad things that he did to small children….hope so…Now beat it!!!!

    1. Ryan says:

      You must be referring to yourself Patrick Henry and not innocent Michael. Hateful and closed-minded people like you are responsible for the lies against Michael. You must have a problem understanding the words NOT GUILTY as determined in Michael witchhunt trial.

      It is good for you to confess all the bad things you did to small children. People who falsely accuse others expose in themselves the very thing they are accusing!

  4. LU says:

    It’s very unfortunate. Drugs & alcohol is pure evil and I blame both substances for the destruction of our society.

    When I was a child, I didn’t want any part of the “high” game. As I got older, my peers (not true friends) always tried to get me to drink this or take that. HA! Years later, I’m still feeling and looking oh so fab-u-lous.

    For sure, some of them are dead. Those who have been luckier, you bet they look like S——.

    Amy Winehouse was a short timer as messed up on drugs as she was. I guess she had no one to save her from herself?

    Did this REALLY shock anyone?
