R.I.P. Michael Jackson (continued)

Everyone is just so speechless. No one expected this news. I just wanted to add some comments from celebs on Michael Jackson's premature death.

Justin Timberlake on his idol: I can't find the words right now to express how deeply sadden [sic] I am by Michael's passing. We have lost a genius and a true ambassador of not only Pop music, but of all music. He has been an inspiration to multiple generations and I will always cherish the moments I shared with him on stage and all of the things I learned about music from him and the time we spent together. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.

Eddie Van Halen: "I am really shocked; as I'm sure the world is, to hear the news. I had the pleasure of working with Michael on 'Beat It' back in '83 -- one of my fondest memories in my career. Michael will be missed and may he rest in peace."

Madonna: "I can't stop crying over the sad news. I have always admired Michael Jackson. The world has lost one of the greats, but his music will live on forever! My heart goes out to his three children and other members of his family. God bless."

Quincy Jones (produced Thriller): "For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words, he was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him."

See for more details.


  1. Good old Jacko. We'll miss you and your crazyness ... not to mention countless dance floor memories with your music as the back grop.

  2. Just stopping by from sunny Cleveland, OH.

    I too am in shock about MJ. I was literally watching the updates on CNN last night until 3 a.m. May he rest in peace.
