    Re: Michael Jackson -- Cardiac Arrest

    I think the family's reaction was natural. How could it not be? Though I did hear that Papa Joe was smiling in the front row. I wear my shades to funerals. If it's someone I'm particularly close to, I really don't want to take them off indoors. My eyes swell from crying, and I'm light sensitive anyway.

    I'll snark on a myriad of things, and I found that whole MJ was the greatest entertainer of all time vomit inducing. But I just can't question a family's grief at a funeral.

    Re: Michael Jackson -- Cardiac Arrest

    It was a very movining memorial and I cried a lot during the whole thing. Somethings are bothering me. While Paris tears and words touched me? It bugged me that it appeared as if Janet pushed that girl up to the mic.

    Another thing that has been bugging me is this that I thought Michael converted to Islam a few years ago and this whole memorial had a Christian church feel to it. Why no talk of Allah? I am prettty sure that in the public death announcement that Jermaine made outside the hospital he said something like you are now with Allah or something like that. Anybody else hear that?

    And why would the insurance company pay out 20 million dollars (perhaps twice) if there was no proof he molested anyone?
    Same reason that he had doctors willing to dose out whatever he wanted? He IS Michael Jackson and that is that!?

    First of all the children should not have been revealed because while living Michael went to great lengths to keep their faces hidden so that they could live a normal life. Now that ship has sailed because the stupid grandparents released pictures and crap. The children should be hidden from the public eye, that is best for them and what Jackson wanted. He was a little odd, but he loved his kids.

    I don't know about the Islam thing. I think the memorial was more of a open to the public circus than anything. Even the reporters there said that it had more of a feeling of a big concert rather than a memorial service. One reporter even compared it to the grammies. I am glad that Jackson got some recognition, but they should have made it less about the performers and more about Jackson. Usher did not even know Jackson, who cares what he did. I do not need to know what a bunch of famous celebrities think about a man who may be their idol, but they do not know personally.

    Strange because most of the newsfolks I heard speaking about it said it felt like more of a church type service rather than a concert. Most went on about how classy and well done it was. Agree with em cause that was a memorial fit for the King of Pop

    Re: Michael Jackson -- Cardiac Arrest

    This whole thing makes me shudder at the thought of our next big celebrity death. When Brad Pitt dies people will be spelling his name out with candles in the desert.

    The American obsession with media stars is twisted and sick as well as a telling commentary on the weakening of our moral and intellectual fiber.
