Farrah dying is sad, but Michael Jackson molested how many kids exactly?

I agree with Battlemonkey on this, let's please try to keep any of the celebrities' controversies out of this thread and just offer them some respect.

There's a plenty of priests running around both hands filthy with the lost innocence of children. Give Michael a break, c'mon. I loved Farrah but really don't know who Mcmahon was.

I say we delay the MJ jokes and naysaying until he's six feet under, this coming from a guy who LOVED his work but hated what he is now REALLY known for

fair enough?

anyway, Farrah Fawcett, boy what a way to go out with the kind of cancer she had, she was before my time though, so I'm not terribly familiar with her, but I knew who she was, Charlie's Angels, that ridiculously popular poster, her and The Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors

on the McMahon front, at least he went out on a high with Cash4Gold

On a related note, I've had Billie Jean stuck in my head since hearing the news about Michael for some reason.

But, I hope all three of them at least went peacefully, like in their sleep.

I've had a MJ megamix of his tunes in my mind since the announcement was made myself

I'm old enough to remember when I was little kid how big a deal he was, I remember when his album Dangerous was released, all the little cameos he did when he was promoting the album

I can't remember what age I was, couldn't have been more than four or five, but I do remember was when I first saw the videos for "Beat It" and "Smooth Criminal" (yeah kids, Alien Ant Farm wasn't the orignator of Smooth Criminal, Michael Jackson was, so :nya:) and I saw his greatness

my dad in particular was a huge fan, he had loved The Jackson Five and MJ, he loved him even more when he released Thriller, he lost nearly all respect for him around 1993 for obvious reasons

his songs had been popping up on random play recently before he died, it's been difficult to even like a guy who even if he never did anything illegal but was, just, super weird, almost how I feel about Prince

RIP MJ, hope you got right with God

Very sad. I grew up with MJ's music and have always loved his 80s output; it's simply pop at its best. I always hoped he would make some kind of a comeback but, alas, it simply wasn't to be. RIP to them all. :sniffle:

Farrah's death is proof that you can't underestimate cancer. And yet she was battling it for nearly 3 years. I can't believe someone with so much spunk and energy could go so suddenly. :/

And MJ, too. He did so much for the music industry. He was up and ready for a comeback, and this happens. I can't believe he's gone, either. On a brighter note, though, his music is going to be selling like crazy now. My heart goes out to the Jackson family; I'm sure they are the most devastated of us all.

I never really knew Ed McMahon, tbh. So I can't honestly say that I'm going to miss him.

The "Smooth Criminal" video is awesome. It is impossible to prove otherwise.

Although I can't understand a single word of the actual song.
