    When are we going to talk about some of the REAL issues Michael has to deal with? I simply love Michael Jackson and so does my daughter. It is often sweep under the rugs and not talked about, but Michael had one of the most debilitating skin disorders in the world “Vitiligo”. Does anyone understand what that does to one mentally? Does anyone understand what it is like NOT being comfortable in your own skin – Yes, I am sure a lot do? But, to have your body start changing right before your eyes and become a circus for others, what must one do? Many can do nothing – Mike opted for one color – the one with no pigment. Where did the gloves come in? Vitiligo affects the joints, most times affecting the fingers and toes!
    This skin disorder has caused many to check out of life, but they were unknowns. It has limited many individuals from reaching their goals in life. When will the news talk about the source of the change in Michaels life? As the mother of a daughter with Vitiligo, you can best believe it affect this guy to the core!
    Love you Mike!

    The reason why the Government Legalized Medical Marijuana is to make sure they get their cut, and then later buy those companies stocks out to so they OWN it. They will make it legal in every state. JMO

    Michael Jackson, was ours, and to this modern generation, he eclipsed all others as the a true American Pop legend. What he has done for the music community, charities worlwide, and black people across the globe, is amazing! Anyone watching the BET interviews with Mr. Lemon can easly see the impace this star had on stars! Sadly Mr. Joe Jackson took the microphone and gave us all an glimpse as to why Michael may have suffered in childhood. Anyone that loves their children, wouldn't be self promoting a new record label in the first interview the father has given. That should give all a glimpse as to why Michael had some issues in life. Still, it's a time to celebrate his music and genius.

    Micheal Jackson was spirituality demonstrated threw the life of a

    hi anderson
    I am writing about micheals religious beliefs, i was part of jehovah's witness and he was to. so a lot of things people are talking about is not true. he had so things he needed to sort out in his life but deeming him as a lost soul is so far fetched. people need to talk to the people that knew him best, like his mother. when she has finished greiving i pray that she comes out and tell the world about the real micheal jackson. remember a mother knows her child better then all the critics in the world
