Wow, this is the first site that’s I’ve seen no talk of Farrah Fawcett, or especially Michael Jackson.
It wasn’t so much of a shock when it came to Farrah Fawcett, she was battling cancer, but Michael Jackson? I thought it was some sick rumor for a minute there. Unbelievable, and just so sad.
I didn’t like that he was changing his appearance so much, he ruined his good looks. He made himself look scarey. My Emily would scream every time she saw his picture, in a joking way, but she would say that he looked scarey.
I was going through some online pictures of him yesterday, just thinking about “back in the day“, and I couldn’t help but break down.  My favorite song was always PYT.  

Him passing made me start thinking of all the actors who have died, that just made me completely burst out crying:
John F. Kennedy, Jr., Heath Ledger, and the unbelievable Princess Diana.

I was just watching a show on Bravo today, about the Paparazzi’s “side” of what happened the night Princess Diana died.  I, personally, feel that THEY were the cause of her death.  

Well, just had to get it out of my head.....

    • I think it is sad especially since it was so sudden. And I did like his music back in the day.....
      But I think we should be talking about Farrah and her sickness, how she discovered it and her battle with it. We as women tend to put aside how we feel for everyone else and we need to pay more attention!

    • He was a cute, talented kid.
      His father deserves all the bad that happens to him for the way he treated him.
      He brought joy to alot of people through his music.
      Other than “We Are the World” and maybe “Man in the Mirror“, he did nothing else to contribute to the good of society. Maybe he contributed to charities, I don’t really know.
      It was horrible when he hung his child over a balcony, endangering his life.
      He was a pedophile and therefore, a liar by marrying Lisa Marie.
      He did not deserve a moment of silence in Congress, mostly because it is not their JOB to do such a thing.
      He was infamous, which is completely different from being famous.

    • Wow, he got a moment of silence in Congress? I missed that.
      I felt so sad when I first heard that Farrah had passed after her long, painful battle with cancer; then the first thing that came to mind was, now He’s going to OverShadow HER passing.
      I was glad to see that whole Barbara Walter’s thing on TV. She was so beautiful all the way up to where the cancer really took over, it was sad to watch.  How she needed that miracle, and hearing her SAY that she didn’t want to die.

      I remember all the stupid, and silly, things that Michael Jackson has done over the years, but I couldn’t help but just Remember when he was Younger. I couldn’t really look at him as he’s changed over the years.

      My main Heartbreak was Princess Diana........It was so strange how Mother Theresa passed away so soon after Princess Diana.

    • This is in response to Debj’s comments. I have a huge problem with people passing judgement on Michael Jackson by saying he was a pedophile. He was acquitted of all charges. If there was any proof or relevance to those charges he’d have gone to prison. No one has any proof that he molested those children. I believe it all to be a scam to get millions of dollars out of him...and it worked.

      I have loved Michael from the time I first set eyes on him when I was a young girl and I have followed his career through the years. He has done so much for people around the world and to say that he hasn’t contributed anything to society is a huge crock! He had a very compassionate soul. I won’t argue that he had some issues and serious mental breakdowns in recent years and my heart breaks for what he went through. I don’t agree with some of the things he did...but Michael had some serious and deep things going on with him mentally that none of us knew about...so who are we to sit in judgement of him? It was sad to see his physical and mental transformation over the years and I like so many others have no idea why he did it but one thing you can’t do is deny the effect he’s had on millions of people around the world...he touched so many hearts and lives and he will be missed by so many. It was a tragic ending to his life. Perhaps take some time and really listen to the words of some of his songs...they just may touch your heart and then maybe you will realize what effect he had on people.

    • We have suffered two great losses.
      At this point, it is not for us to judge.
      MJ was a wonderful soul and had great talents that we will probably never see the likes of again. This is a true example of judging a book by it’s cover. It is not my place to judge anyone.
      Let him rest in peace.  

      Farrah was a beautiful lady inside and out. It breaks my heart to know that she fought so hard and really believed that she would get better. She was a true inspiration and will be missed terribly.

    • Actually Deb, MJ holds the world record for contributing to many, many charities.
      It’s very unfortunate that you have not heard any more of his music.
      He made some mistakes but no more than any of us.
      He was found NOT GUILTY and aquitted of all those charges. Therefore, how can you say he was a pedifile? Only God can judge us, it is not OUR place to judge anyone.
      He was very FAMOUS , there are just a handful of people who refuse to see what a great artist MJ truly was. I am so sorry that these folks missed out on a Great, Famous, unbelievable soul.

      To each his own though, I just thank God everyday that he is the one charged with judging me. I would hate to know I would have to be judged by folks who really don’t know me at all.

    • Regardless of what MJ did or did not do...I choose not to say anything out of respect...
      Honestly speaking I never got into MJ at all...I grew up on country music and old rock n roll...so I cannot say that I dislike his music...I have listened to some of it and there are some songs that I do like...and some that I don’t...

      i feel sorry for the kids of michael jackson!!! they will be shuffled around now and pulled from here to there probably!!!

    • I am Saddened by both Michael Jackson’s and Farrah Fawcett’s passing away. I will miss both of them dearly. I watched every episode of Charlie’s Angels and tried to get my hair just like Farrahs. I listened to MJ’s music when I was younger and thought he was cute. I admit that when he started all that plastic surgery and all the stuff going on with him and kids I was kind of skeptic and not sure what I was feeling about that exactly, But I still loved his music and still loved watching him on stage dancing when he was on tv at an awards show or some entertainment show. I would be right there In front of the Tube as I am sure most everyone was, Because no matter what kind of trouble he was In or what other people thought of him, You know you were there watching him. He had that kind of power and Talent. MJ was a legend and still Is. Farrah Fawcett was beautiful Inside and out, was an Angel and always will be an Angel, Shes God’s Angel now and we were lucky to have her as our Angel for awhile.

    • I am saddened by farrah’s, mj’s and ed’s deaths. A loss is a loss and all are so sad.
      Farrah battled a disease that many do not talk about. Her type of cancer was always hush hush. I think she was so very courageous in sharing her story. It brought a new awareness.

      Ed McMahon was just a cool icon. He was a good man and left a long legacy.

      As for MJ, who know the real story. Personally, it was all about money for the families. If my child was honestly abused, it would go all the way to the highest court, no pay off would ever suffice. The families took pay offs. nuff said. He was an awesome talent and deserves to be remembered for all that. He gave much of his money to charities. Yes he was different, but who has the right to judge.

      Godspeed to all who have passed!

    • I personally will miss MJ’s entertaining. IMHO he was the MASTER. It is not our place to judge him, the man, and what was going on in his personal life... that is GOD’s job. I don’t believe for a minute, though, that he was guilty of the things that he was accused of. I simply think that being robbed of a childhood himself, he tried to see to it that other children were given the oppotunity to have one and be loved. Like most geniuses, and I feel he was a genius, he cracked. There was just so much going on is his head and he strived so hard all his life for perfection, that he just simply could not keep up anymore. He hid in his own imaginary world that apparently included drugs and that warped his sense of reality. People like that don’t harm other people, though, they merely self destruct... which unfortunately, he did. May he rest in peace.

      As for Farrah, she was the perfect example to women everywhere of strength and perseverence. She faced her disease head on and met her death with grace and dignity. She will be sorely missed by all and I will continue to pray for her family and friends for peace and comfort. R.I.P. Farrah

    • Thank God for mj, farrah fawcett and ed mcmahon.  They all brought wonder and imagination to our rather ordinary and dull world.  

      MJ was a person of sensitivity and great talent.  He had no outlet for his childhood feelings as that was taken away from him at an early age.  None of us would know how we would respond under the same circumstances.

      Most of his brothers had more of a solid base from which they grew from as they were older when the group started.  Also, they did not quite have the sensitive and artistic nature that Michael had.

      I understand him completely, because I have that same love for children.  Being a teacher you would have to if you want to be effective.  His love was more pronounced because he was under the scrutiny of society constantly.

      Add his sensitivity, lack of childhood and him having to escape from society to the regular pressures of his life, and ask yourself if we would be able to deal with what he had to deal with.

      Michael Jackson and the J5 were such an inspiration to me.  As a young black girl growing up in the inner city, they gave me a reason to dream and hope.  I recall being overjoyed just to read about their lives and see their successes.  It inspired me to want to do something with my life.

      Also, probably as every young girl of my generation, I was “in love” with Michael Jackson and the J5.  They fueled my childhood fantasies and dreams.  I was terribly saddened by his parting and feel like a big chunk of my life has been taken away.  I have spent the last couple of days watching their videos and listening to their music to bring me solace.

      Another thing, this world is slowing loosing it’s “goodness and innocence” and to see several icons who were blessings to this world leave, saddens me even more.  It seems like the ugly is closing in on us.

      Many blessings and condolences to all of their families.

      Rest in peace lovely ones:  MJ, Farrah and Ed—let God be your judge.

      Luv you all,

      Renee

    • Also an fyi for Debj...Michael Jackson is in the Guiness Book of World Records as being the most charitable pop star in history. Just thought I’d let you know that since you weren’t sure whether or not he gave to charities. That’s a pretty special person in my eyes and someone with a truly maginificent heart. happy

    • What is going on? Now Billy Mays had died! He may not be famous in the same right as the other three, but he was still on television. He invented those oxy things right?
      This has turned out to be a cursed month.
      Actually Year, because we also lost Natasha Richardson in March....

      Well, when it comes to that Award show that usually shows the passing of all in 2009 is going to exceed last years list, and we‘re only halfway through the year.

    • You know after watching a video that was posted on fab40 I really feel bad for the bad press MJ got.
      I really believe that he was not a pediphile. I think that its sick to think that no one trusts themselves to sleep on a bed with a kid in fear that they might have sex with the poor little guy. No matter how MJ tried to explain that, it got lost. He felt sorry for kids. They have no control of their lives- whether they get abused by a horrible father, mother whatever- they have no voice and that is what hurt him so bad when he was a kid.
      Everyone turned on him like he was a pedi but it is our wickedness that turned having a sleepover into a bad/ cruel thing.
      anyway- I get it- I think he was truelly a tortured soul.
