I was at the school dance with my friends, and the DJ who plays requested songs put on horrible modern songs-so I wanted to go up there and request some MJ. I wrote down "Smooth Criminal" and "Don't Stop Till Du Get Enough". Right after i wrote them down, I looked back at the clipboard and saw a beliebt girl I hate looking at what I wrote down. She looked at her Friends and sagte "WTF IS THIS? EW!" She furiously crossed out the songs I wrote down. I got so mad. I went back to the clipboard later and wrote "Rock With You" and "Blame it on The Boogie" A friend of the other girl who I also hate went to the clipboard, looked at the Liste of songs, and when she looked at MJ's songs she sagte "MICHAEL JACKSON? WTF IS THIS? EW" she then takes the ink pen and furiously stabs the paper and crosses the King's songs so hard THAT the paper rips. She walks away as I stare, infuriated.

When I was young, I never even knew oder met Michael Jackson. But, my opinion is that he was a very talented artist and a loving, caring person to everyone. His songs make me dance and sing every time. The media and the false rumors and bad names about him I will never believe. I dislike when people call him Wako Jacko. It's not nice. Also when people say that he was guilty, I watched his trial on Tv and he was innocent. They wanted to use prejudice and stereotype against him because he was different. MJ haters beat it. We do not need that from you. Obviously, everyone can't be the same.That is just the way God made him. He was different and unique in his own special way. When he died, I was shocked. Then, I decided to learn how to dance and sing his songs. The first MJ song I heard on the radio was Beat It. Then, I started practicing the dance moves and learning the lyrics. It feels great paying a special tribute to the King of Pop every once in a while! In 2012 on Halloween, I was MJ for Halloween and performed Billie Jean. Beat It and Smooth Criminal are my two Favorit MJ songs. MJ's legacy will never die. Rest in Peace MJ. We all miss you.

It all started when I was 7 years old. Somewhere in the Monat of June oder July, I got news that Michael Jackson had died. I didn't care much at that time. Life went on as usual for me. Them my dad upgraded his car and one Tag gave me a lift in it. I turned on the Musik player. The first song? Thriller(the song). I fell in Liebe with it...

Then only had I realized who Michael Jackson was. My dad still had Mehr songs. I listened to them all.
As soon as the player struck Little Susie, my dad would change the song. I did not know why. I downloaded Little Susie and listened. After the song was over, my eyes were waterfalls. The song was absolutely gloomy. I researched the story and finally ended up here on this site. Only Fanpop gave me a reasonable explanation for Little Susie.
I created my own account on this site, just to praise him...
He shall live in my herz forever...

So my story began when i was 5/6 years old, i was watching the TV when the Zeigen got interrupted Von a breaking news that sagte "Famous Singer Michael Jackson Died at 50" i didn't think much of it and changed the channel.

Then my mom burst out of the room crying, i asked "what's the matter", she sagte "Michael Jackson died"
I got curious then ask "Who's Michael Jackson?" she told me what an amazing person and fantastic human being he was, and i sagte "How good are his musics, anyway?"
My mom then played my first MJ song, Black oder White, i immediately fell in Liebe with him and started listening to his songs.

My first MJ album was "HIStory", it was filled with awesome songs, my favourite is "HIStory" and "D.S.". i became Mehr in Liebe with him ever since.

At Kindergarten and early primary, i was bullied a lot 'cause i used to listen to MJ all the time, these kids usually call me "Freak" oder "Obsessed with Dead Guy", but that didn't stop me from listening to him.

Was Innocent oder Guilty: The FINAL Verdict
Complete Public Exoneration Way Overdue

It is sad how we've plummeted into a judgmental, tabloid addicted society that formulates weak opinions based on media fed hearsay and propaganda. One of the biggest victims of this media lynch mob was the late .
In addition to a corrupt media that fails to inform people with facts, we also have hordes of people who lack the intelligence, research, oder the proper resources to provide insight on highly publicized cases, but still take it upon themselves to spread fraudulent information on independent, amateur blog sites disguised as reputable news sources.
When searching around the net, it's very easy to find lots of misinformation from both fans, and haters. One person in particular was so unforgivably inept and irresponsible that he published a scathing blog in the summer of 2013 supported entirely Von fictitious FBI files that were already exposed as bogus and non-existent back in 2005. This person obviously still has no clue that all of the information he used was publicly dismissed almost a decade Vor with finality. The blogger still went in head first and released...

Hello there! I'm back to write a new Artikel just for you! This time, we will be exploring the similarities Michael had with the Lord Jesus Christ. Now Du probably already know that as I was learning about Michael, one conclusion became singularly apparent to me: He reminded me of Jesus. Just watch his interviews and his interactions with other people, and you'll see what I mean!

So what do Michael and Jesus have in common?

1. They are both very loving, caring, kind, spiritual, peaceful, faithful, warm-hearted, full of innocence and purity, and have an intense desire to heal the world and make it a better place!

2. They both quoted the Scriptures and used symbolism. Jesus quoted the Scriptures when he was tempted Von the Devil, and He used symbolism when He talked with people and in His parables. Michael did very much the same thing. He incorporated Bible verses into his song lyrics, and he used symbolism in his dancing, album art, short films, concerts, and poems.

Dearest Michael,

First of all, I would like to say a very, very happy birthday to Du my dear angel! How's it going there in Heaven? I know Du are doing fine and alright...Heaven is really a wonderful place, where there is no Mehr pain and suffering. And best of all, Du are with the One whom Du loved very much, and that is the Creator of the Universe...ALMIGHTY GOD!

A lot has happened in the past 7 years. I was in my first Jahr of adolescence when God placed this special Liebe for Du in my heart, which is what made me a Fan of Du and also made me grow a thirst of learning about Du and your life. I also had to overcome some emotional and personal challenges which were new to me at the time. Such as when I had my first menstrual period (Sorry for being vulgar here.), and when my mother had to undergo an operation. It's a good thing that God's Spirit and your spirit were there to help me get through this transit period in my life.

Oh Michael, words cannot describe how much Du mean to me. Du are the sweetest, kindest, friendliest, most humble, most gracious, most gentle, most compassionate, most caring, and most loving man that I have ever...

When I was a young one, I grew up listening to mike's music, watching his Musik videos, watching moonwalker but honestly, I wasn't a big Fan of him (yet). I thought he was great. Absolutely great but I just wasn't a fan. I was a young one. A toddler. I didn't understand yet. My brother use to always play his Musik out loud in the house and we always use to sit down in the living room watching moonwalker all the time. I always wondered why my brother is such a big Fan of mike like I am today. He has a record player with a picture of mike in the thriller era on it and a couple of mike shirts. He even has the T-shirt with the Piano simple on it from Beat it. So a few years have passed and this started about 10 years ago. In 2006. Either 2006 oder 2007. I really don't remember which Jahr it was when I started to become a fan. But anyway, one day, I spotted two tapes on the counter. I picked one up and looked at it. And just out of the blue, I decided to listen to them. So I took it upstairs to my room, put it in my stereo, put my headphones in the jack, put them on and gave the tape a listen. And the first song I heard was "Bad" and I sagte in my thoughts "oh this is Michael jackson" and...

If Du are curious about what was God's mission for Michael, and what the Enemy tried to do to block and/or stop it, you've come to the right place! Here are some FAQ's that I read in an Artikel from a Truth-filled blog. Enjoy! :)

Q: So what did God give Michael to do?
A: Spread a message of love, innocence, family unity, being good stewards of the Earth and the personal gifts God gave us, and a reminder of the messages Jesus gave us in the Bible of returning to child-like innocence in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Q: How did God do this?
A: He gave Michael this exquisite talent to put him out in front of as many millions of people as possible. God gifted Michael with a tool to gather them.

Q: Why did God choose Michael?
A: Because Michael's herz was open to Him, as only a child's could be. The fame that accompanied this great talent of his, despite the trouble it drew, also became his protector. This made him incredibly lonely and isolated, but it also sheltered him from the worldly. It kept him innocent. In his loneliness, he read, he wrote, he studied, he dreamed and he created. And never did he take credit for...

1958-Eternity
Hi everyone. As Du already know, today is the seventh Jahr since Michael left this Earth and passed on to eternal life which many of us, in our limited human perspective, believe that he was gone too soon. Now I understand that there are still some of Du here who are feeling devastated, in denial, oder even depressed over Michael's passing. So I'm Schreiben this Artikel just for you. Let me start Von sharing my own reaction on this Tag seven years ago...What started as an ordinary Tag for me turned out to be a life-changing one upon hearing the awful news from my mother that Michael had died. I also still remember having this numb and shocked feeling that I had while watching the Berichten on TV. Then in the Weiter few days, I had a stuffed mind and I really didn't care on what was really going on at first. Du could say that I was also in denial at that time. It wasn't until I watched his memorial service with my mother when I started to pay Mehr attention, and I still clearly remember that part when the memorial was about to end and then my mother, who is in tears, asked me, "Do Du think Michael is now in Heaven?" In response, I nodded and sagte "Yes, I truly believe so." We even bowed...

I wish I could express just how strong my Liebe for Michael Jackson is. He was such an amazing man and I wish I could've at least hugged him back when he was still alive, but I was too busy dealing with my rough early childhood. He makes me feel like I'm not alone though. I can't explain just how much him and his Musik help me. I want to be like him in so many ways. He was always such a beautiful man and a little boy at heart, keeping this sense of innocence and this imagination that most lose. I promise I'll never lose any of that either. I couldn't if I wanted to. It's such a part of me. Sharing it with Michael makes me so happy and knowing he would've loved me too makes me feel even better. He was very misunderstood and so am I. I wish he'd felt less alone and had Mehr who could see into his soul with love. I Liebe him in all the ways possible and I respect and look up to him so damned much. I can't say it better than that. I Liebe you, Michael.

At 1987, Michael Jackson had an album which is ''Bad''.. If Du all think that Michael did it because he WANTS to be bad, well Du are wrong because Du don't know the story... So in this Article, I will tell Du the story..s

This is the beginning when Darel shouted, ''You ain't bad, Du ain't Nothin!!'' he sagte it, his song started so he proved that he is good but bad,

A little over half a century ago, the angels, just as they always do, were playing with starlight. When Engel play with starlight, it turns into a pure Gold stone that shines all of the colours of the rainbow. Once, and only once, an Angel – Jäger der Finsternis dropped some golden starlight and it fell onto Earth. The precious stone formed into the shape of a human boy who had magical eyes and a smile that made your herz melt. He danced and sang for us and we laughed with joy. As he aged into a man he grew even Mehr beautiful and continued to bring us light and happiness. Like wine, his Musik grew sweeter as time went by. He knew that to make us smile the most all he had to do was to walk on the moon. He lived on Earth but he was the only man who knew how to climb up to the moon and dance on it because he was the only man who was made of starlight. He felt guilty every time he climbed down again so he spent most of his life up there. He knew if he did that he could make us happy. He danced so much his feet began to get tired and he sang so much his lungs began to hurt. The precious stone he was made of began to shine through his skin and people mocked and jaded him because he was different. The world...

Michael's POV

Mehr than 200 women came to auditon for the part as my Liebe interest. And it took hours to watch all of them. Finally I saw the girl that I wanted to be in the video and whan I saw her I knew that I had made the right choice. "I want her. She's perfect and the rest can just be extras." I announced as I pointed to a girl with long brown curly hair and brown eyes. As I was concerned auditons were closed as I had found my girl. I got up and Frank went to thank the ladies for coming but auditons were over.I walked out of the room and bump into Arianna, who was carrying a stack of papers and I helped her picked them up, which took her Von surprise because she had been expecting for me to yell at her. As I handled them to her , I felt a current of electricity the moment that my hand touched hers and I looked at her as I wanted to see if she felt it too. I don't know why but i\I never realized that she had the prettiest eyes that I had ever seen. Her eyes were dark brown with golden flecks. I took that moment to study her Mehr closely. Her long black hair which was usually curly had been straightened. She had a herz shaped face with pouty lips and a swanlike...

Arianna's POV

Going out with Daniel turned out to be just the thing that I needed to unwind after a stressful Tag at work. Daniel took me to see The Conjuring. That was typical of him and this wasn't the only time that I went on a datum with him and it seemed like horror Filme was the only thing that he wanted to take me to. And the fact that it was a drive in movie overlooking LA meant one thing. Yep he wanted to make out instead of watching the movie. My point was proven when he started Küssen me on my neck. I was annoyed and I pushed him away. I was so not in the mood for a make out session. But Daniel didn't get the message so he tried again, figuring that I was playing hard to get. I glared at him.

"Oh come on Arianna why Du Schauspielen like that?" he stated in a annoyed tone. "You didn't have a problem with Küssen me before. So why Du tripping now?"

I looked at him a long moment. He was cute. I could not deny that. He was tall and skinny with low hair cut, brown, karamell complexion, and a stylish dresser. He had swag which I liked. But what I didn't like was the fact that he was being pushy and I hoped that he got the message that his...

Arianna Morales
Arianna's POV I was not having a great Tag and I wanted to go home. I sighed as I stared at the clock. Michael was being his annoying demanding self as usual and he was getting on my last nerve. I did my job to the best of my ability as his assistant. But nothing that I did ever satisfied that man. Du guys are probably confused right? And I haven't even introduced myself yet. My name is Arianna Morales and I am the great Michael Jackson's assistant as I mention before. I have been working for him for a Monat part time because I go to college at UCLA full time. My major is medical and I want to become a doctor. I never expected to get the opportunity to work for Michael. But living with my older sister Yazmine, I had to get a job to help pay bills and living in Los Angeles weren't exactly cheap. So when I saw the ad in the newspaper one Tag I decided to apply, not really expecting to get hired. I was interviewed Von Frank DiLeo, who is Michael's manager and I didn't really expect for the interview to go well because I was inexperienced and very nervous. Frank was about 300 lbs, had medium length brown hair which he wore slicked back into a ponytail and smoked Cuban cigars. But as...

Kasey awoke the Weiter morning and began to get ready for work. As she was stepping out of the dusche her cell phone went off. Kasey quickly dried herself off and grabbed her phone. To her surprise it was a video message from her ex boyfriend Jeff. "Ugh I have a feeling this isn't an apology video." Kasey thought right before pushing the play button. Sure enough she was right, Jeff video taped himself sleeping with another girl and sent it to Kasey. "What a pig!" Kasey exclaimed aloud to herself as she clicked off the video and slammed her phone down and stormed off to finish getting ready. Before she could even begin to get dressed her phone rang, Kasey stormed out of the bedroom and picked up her phone. "Listen Du worthless little pig! Du sending me a video of Du doing some other chick is not cool at all!" Kasey screamed into the phone. "What the hell are Du talking about?" the voice at the other end replied. Kasey then realized it wasn't Jeff it was Michael. "Oh my god Michael I'm so sorry I thought Du were Jeff." Kasey replied upset at what she had just said. "No its fine don't worry about it."

Published in:
Hitkrant (Netherlands)
Date:
October 15, 1988

Although Kim Wilde toured with Michael Jackson for months she just met him twice. 'We didn't have any deep and meaningful conversations oder anything, but he is very sweet. I don't want to hear any bad things about him anymore!'

It's too weird that there were even rumours that we were having an affair. Yes, we respect eachother but that's as far as it goes. I've only talked to him twice!

What were those talks about, then?
He told me that he felt I was doing great, and that he was looking vorwärts-, nach vorn to the successful tour. And he asked whether I was still enjoying it. And I was!

What impression did Du get of him?
He's very normal, very smart, very sweet and very sympathetic. And what's the most important thing: he's got a very sweet smile. Du can tell a lot of things from the way someone smiles.

And what did Du think of his show?

The following morning, Michael woke me up.
"Becky, Becky?" He whispered gently in my ear. The sound of his voice tickled my ear drum and I opened my eyes. Michael was standing above me and it made me jerk back in shock.
"Sorry.. Didn't mean to scare you.." He apologised. I looked down, embarrassed.
"It's ok.. What are we doing today Michael?" I asked.
"Nothing much I'm afraid, just a Neverland Tag today, but yo can pick what we do if Du want to." Michael smiled.
"Sure Michael. That sounds great." I smiled back. Michael took my hand and pulled me up out of bed. I wobbled a little from tiredness but nothing major. I went to get ready, and while I was doing so, I heard Michael talking to himself. I crept over to the room Michael was standing in and listened to what he had to say.
"What can I do for her birthday? My very best friend..? What can I do?!" He panicked. I carried on listening.
"My best friend is turning 15 in a week and I have no idea what to do for her!" he continued. I decided to let it be known I was there. I walked back, stomping my feet as loudly as I could and Michael stopped talking.
