A Statement From Quincy Jones

| Filed under: Michael Jackson

"I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words.

Divinity brought our souls together on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the 80's.

To this day, the music we created together on "Off The Wall," "Thriller" and "Bad" is played in every corner of the world and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace, professionalism and dedication.

He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever."

    R.I.P MJ

    I know that you are waiting for these passings to be over with so you can be free to report on yourself and other cretins like Megan Fox and Lady GaGa.

    omg i think i'm going to cry :( :(:(:( his poor children and family

    I remember watching much music when I was a little girl and his video's would be the longest but it would also be a treat because no other artist made long music video's.

    Michael lives on pre-thriller forever in my heart. I use to dance ballet to a couple of his songs.

    PS: Perez you suck ass. Canadians don't really like you. Canadian's don't like rude and annoying people like you to claim an artist faked their death, and then back peddles and removes the text from their blog accusing a music LEGEND of making a ploy for attention.

    You'll get what you deserve….

    "Off The Wall" was Michael's BEST BEST album….I have to say, Quicy…you added to the flavor and the legend that was Michael. Peace in the middle east….give his children and family some space. Losing a loved one so suddenly is never easy…and even the walls that hold your house up become suffocating. There isn't enough space or sorrow in the world to fill the hole that is left in your heart after a loved one dies.

    Peace to his children and family. I'm sure he was a very loving and generous person and I'm very sorry to hear his name being slandered. All people, even those that do wrong…deserve a rightful and peaceful death.

    PEREZ: Did someone touch you as a child? or did NO ONE touch you at all, like not even a hug? Seriously dude, you have issues….get help. Seek therapy….light a candle…pray…go to confession….sleep on a cross…get on your knees for a good purpose for once in your life (prayer)…seek god or spirituality. You are seriously….seriously demented.

    Glad he's gone! Guy molested a bunch of children and the only reason he isn't in jail is because he 1. had a good lawyer and 2. got off on technicalities. Child molesters should all be shot….to take a child's innocence for yhour own sick pleasure is disgusting. His heart just took him out before anyone had to a chance to her their hands on him!

    oxQuincy
    RIP Michael

    I actually want to cry.
    First Ed, then Farrah, now Michael.

    These really are the last days.
    So much talent has left us in less than 72hrs-I can barely cope!

    I am devastated!!!

    Perez is a heartless f a g.

    As I turned up the collar on
    A favorite winter coat
    This wind is blowin' my mind
    I see the kids in the street
    With not enough to eat
    Who am I to be blind
    Pretending not to see their needs

    A summer's disregard
    A broken bottle top
    And a one man's soul
    They follow each other
    On the wind ya' know
    'Cause they got nowhere to go
    That's why I want you to know

    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    And no message could have been any clearer
    If you wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make a change, yey
    Na na na, na na na, na na na na oh ho

    I've been a victim of
    A selfish kinda love
    It's time that I realize
    There are some with no home
    Not a nickel to loan
    Could it be really pretending that they're not alone

    A willow deeply scarred
    Somebody's broken heart
    And a washed out dream
    (Washed out dream)
    They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see
    'Cause they got no place to be
    That's why I'm starting with me

    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    And no message could have been any clearer
    If you wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make a change

    So true Quincy. Despite all the allegations and rumors, he was an amazing entertainer and I am praying 4 his family. Time here on this earth is short and you should take the time out everyday to tell the people in your life how thankful u are of them, because you never know. This news was shocking to us all. RIP MJ.



  17. 17

    It no shock! the guy couldn't even walk more or less try to dance.I think he died from anorexia and drug abuse! I'm sorry to see him die also,but kidney and liner failure come from drug abuse and not eating healthy.RIP Micheal



  18. 18

    Where were all his friends when he was on trial for molesting that kid??? I'm glad that freak is gone, he hasn't been relevant since the mid-eighties. Maybe now his kids have a shot at living a normal life. Good riddance weirdo!!!

    Re: HEIDI FAILED – WHERE DID YOU GO TO MEDICAL SCHOOL SWEETHEART?



  20. 20

    haha. whatever. the guy was a boil on the A$$ of humanity. good riddance.



  21. 21

    Re: Smeishy
    Then why do you log on to his site everyday if he's such a disease of a person?



  22. 22

    It's sad that he was once a great performer and the fact that he has kids. Otherwise, he is…or rather was, a child molesting pedophile. I just have a real hard time feeling bad about this. It's too bad his life turned out the way it did and that some will only remember him as a child predator.



  23. 23

    he will be remembered. he was THE king of pop.
    we love you michael. rest in peace..



  24. 24

    i'm sorry, but i don't understand how anyone can be honoring a child molester? Shame on the media for trying to brush 'his dark past' under the rug and make him into a hero.



  25. 25

    Dead Pedarast - Boo Hoo. What kind of sick society puts a guy who raped children on a pedestal? I'm sure I'll meet this sick bastard in hell.



  26. 26

    Someone should seriously hijack this page to a useful url. Perez may as well pack up and move to the burbs. Stick a fork in Perez, He's done.



  27. 27

    What the hell is that buzzing sound?

    Oh, I know! It's the 15 minute timer going off on Perez. Time is up Mario.

    Time to slide back under the rock you slithered out from under. Your 15 minutes, (that I say never was because all you are is a talentless, dime a dozen, bitch with a keyboard) is OVER!



  28. 28

    Re: lakeacid – You are a sick bastard. Your insulting someone bc of their actions? Have you ever made a mistake. He is a person. He was made with one egg cell and one sperm. And you were too. So you need to shut your fking mouth. It's people like you who make me sick. Get a life. Stop hating on people.



  29. 29

    everyone loved michael i feel devastated too fk all the haters



  30. 30

    It has been reported that Michael has had lupus since 1984, he has been photographed in surgical masks and in wheelchairs. I think he had more medical issues than the press knew.

    Perez? You are turning into a Hater. I am feeling very sorry for you. Not just the actions of the last week but before too. You need to take a break and learn to be a decent human being again.



  31. 31

    J**sus H. Chr*st, somebody dies, and all of a sudden everybody FORGETS! The guy is an fing pervert who slept with children!! It's like OJ for God sake! Somebody is famous and it just does not matter what they do! Sure he was talented, so are MANY others who do not abuse their position by using it to access children for perversion!!!!!! OJ could play football, so who cares if he slashes two people to death. The priorities in this country are about as scary as it gets!!!

    Flashback : "We ae the world" song was an idea of MJ gave to Quincy Jones from the song "State of Independence" by Donna Summer, which MJ was also part of the song chorus of it !

    to anyone saying horrible stuff and making mean jokes at this time, il say this;

    if you care so much about kids then shut your faces and keep your opinions to yourselves, if you really care about those poor children who have just lost their father and others in the family who have lost their uncle, cousin etc…

    here to my online mj friends,can you find me on facebook? asap? my names rachael ferginator (not my real name btw), im totally alone here and im so upset and im trying to decide what to do, and the MJ website has shut down :(



  34. 34

    Like most fo us, I grew up listening to his music. To this day on and off again I find myself popping in one of his CDs. This is so sad. He will never be forgotten.

    P.S. Why are these people still visiting your website if they hate you so much???? Just like what they are urging you to do, they also need to get over it.

    Re: ohjeeeezlauren
    I have made mistakes, I will never claim to be perfect but my mistakes pale in comparison to molesting a child. There is no excuse. It is an unforgiveable "mistake". And Jacko is rotting in hell right now.
    Someone dies and you are supposed to forget all their "mistakes"? Forget that he rape a child (at least one of those allegations was correct because he paid the family off. Innocent people don't settle lawsuits…for ANY reason).
    If you don't hate his actions then you support child rape and child molestation. You are the sick bastard

    Re: angbeep – To all of you out there passing judgment; remember, when you point a finger, three fingers point back at you. We are not there to judge (you all did not witness MJ's life personally), that's for God to do. The guy has passed on, and, if you don't have anything kind, good, compassionate or even humane to share; just shut up, and keep your comments to yourselves. My condolences to Katherine, Joseph, Jackie, Reba, Jermaine, Tito, La Tonya, Marlon, Randy and Janet Jackson (and his children). MJ ("King of Pop") RIP and God speed. May the Holy Father (O.O.O)lead you on in your journey beyond. Amen!
