  7. 7

    haha wow thats awesome



  8. 8

    they do lots of other dances too Look at youtube.



  9. 9

    The prisoners where forced to chance to entertain the head of the prison. He and his wife use the prisoners for their own personal use. If they don't do want is said they are punished. Do some research on the video. Its sad.



  10. 10

    rest in peace MJ



  11. 11

    wow i have never anything like this,this is even more proof that everyone around the world has been impacted by his death somehow.

    May he Rest in Peace



  12. 12

    Mr Major Dude??? Where are you???



  13. 13

    man, up your alley Mario, bunch of men, all stuck in one place, all that buggery! you go boy! and they all bent over for you!
    you'll get pimped out for some smokes in there!



  14. 14

    OMG that made me tear up



  15. 15

    wow thats so cool.,..how did they manage to learn that over two days!!!!



  16. 16

    I like Jackson music because of my own memories attached. Fuck MJ, he abused kids, you fucking know it! No 46 year old man has "sleep overs". You can do good, give to charity, etc….but still be a pedophile. Burn in hell!



  17. 17

    This one made me cry. Damn you Perez! Mmy mascara is running down my face and now I look like Alice Cooper!



  18. 18

    So great. Thanks for the lovely tribute.



  19. 19

    this also brought tears to my eyes!
    R.I.P MJ-people will be thinking of you every second of everyday.
    long live the king of pop



  20. 20

    that was really beautiful, thank you for sharing it



  21. 21

    Wow. That's really cool.



  22. 22

    It's wonderful!



  23. 23

    so gay!!



  24. 24

    Has anyone else noticed that Perez looks an awful lot like Frankenberry?



  25. 25

    We watched him grow up. Enjoyed and cherished his talents. Criticized him for being different. Broke him down because he didn't fit in. Seems like there is a shared guilt over this guy. Put them up high to tear them down. We must evolve.

  33. 33

    Just when i thought i had the tears under control!



  34. 34

    That was great! These prisoners got talent!



  35. 35

    Ben is my favorite song from childhood. I still have my 45, worn as hell, but still have it. This is pretty impressive, to get it all in sync in just a couple of days. Good for them, great job!



  36. 36

    Re: Big Black Dick – Can you not go on one post and not be an ass-hole? THIS is not about fucking Perez, it is about MJ. Have just a little respect and if you can't, move on to the next post, please!



  37. 37

    that was really touching. It brought tears to my eyes.

  43. 43

    Wow that was amaazing. how the hell did they do that? hahah and trust them with all those props.. they must not be maximum security prisoners. Anyways, that was very touching.



  44. 44

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Fuck you. Are you a pedophile, too?



  45. 45

    wow. that was good. but the music brought a tear to my eye. and it was the first one i've ever shed for michael jackson. he might not have been my favorite person, but he was a human being who had many troubles in his life and even in death he deserves respect.



  46. 46

    Whats the first song called??



  47. 47

    nice. but not as good as thriller



  48. 48

    Nice, but i got bummed that they have another video doing the retarded soulja boy dance. Soulja suck can blow nuts.



  49. 49

    Re: Major Dude – I'm good:) Email me! Harry, me, letty, we all talk away from here. Join us!



  50. 50

    amazing :)



  51. 51

    OMG! i love this!



  52. 52

    Yeah its all and very well they they pay tribute,( i say this lightly ) : you only wish it was that they WILLINGLY did so.

    So whos the bigger loss here? Jackson? Aren't we forgetting Farah Faucet?
    Don't get me wrong i loved Jackson,( i still dance to thriller like a queen ) and I must say, He dreamed of dying like Elvis…. Well, close enough, he wasn't on the toilet and he had only taken 8 drugs. at least he got his dying wish…… sort of anyway.

    @ mynameis_elle

    Did you know that those who don't dance get beaten by the prison guards? and on occasion prisoners were killed? I know the dance is adorable darling, but that prison is just a tourist attraction to the country, veiled over by a dark curtain.



  53. 53

    Respecting their icon in death….their warden is a very special person…



  54. 54

    HEY ASSHOLES:

    IF YOU DON'T LIKE PEREZ OR EVEN IF YOU HATE HIM GET THE FUCK OFF THIS SITE YOU FUCKING MORONS. ALL YOU DO IS COME HERE TO BITCH THINKING THAT YOU MATTER OR WHAT YOU SAY IS GOING TO HAVE ANY TYPE OF EFFECT.

    AND BTW LADY GAGA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE SO GET USED TO THE FACT THAT SHE WILL BE HERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

    PROBLEMS? go kill yourself.

    I'm so sick of this shit.



  55. 55

    This made me cry. What a sad loss to music!!



  56. 56

    Of course Mario's gonna like this.These men are nothing more than slaves,who are forced to do this.

    Wow,Mario endorses slavery!



  57. 57

    AMAZING. Made me cry…



  58. 58

    OMG, I cried like a baby throughout the entire video. Job well done. R.I.P. Michael.



  59. 59

    Oh man, the We Are the world part made me cry so hard… Just beautiful. R.I.P King of Pop.



  63. 63

    Oh and one more word on my previous post, if Ryan ONEil wishes to tie the knot he may aswell go down with Farrah Faucet, i never much cared for him.

    @ Armond

    Youuu…Just described PEREZ there, Im no saying I hate him, I in-fact love his Celeb Gossip, and true enugh we are entitled to a bit of fun, as is he, and what i meant before about Perez is that he himself can come up with some pretty venomous goss, I'm sure you wouldnt want that said about you right?

    I Respect you Perez, but there ARE flaws.

    PS: @ Armond, its not like you matter either so were not responding, Ciao xXx



  64. 64

    Re: _Alice_ – done!



  65. 65

    Re: anniegirl – Sweet is not a pedophile. MJ was. Deal with it. Now fuck off:)



  66. 66

    Re: bearmonty – You should be the one to research more about this. The head of the prison does not use these prisoners for their personal use, much more with his wife. His name is Byron F. Garcia, and yes I have visited the prison myself along with a lot of other tourists. It is open to anyone who wants to see the prisoners dance for themselves. Journalists can freely roam and take pictures and interview the prisoners if they want. Didn't it occur to you that these people actually take pride in what they do. I've talked to them and for the 1st time in their lives they feel that with these dances people really saw them as human too and still have hope. With these dances they have something to do and be proud of themselves. A highlight of the visit is when several visitors are asked to join the prisoners in dancing in the courtyard… Watch the documentary on youtube - "Jailhouse Rock - Philippines." These could answer a lot of your questions. And I really do take offense on people just commenting when they themselves haven't really been there and talked to these people. And make it seem that they are the ones who know a lot. To the Cebu inmates, it was a privilege to have seen all of you live. Really a most amazing experience. And thank you so much for this tribute to MJ, it is so touching and beautiful.



  67. 67

    OLD NEWS. THIS CAME OUT A WHILE AGO.



  68. 68


  69. 69

    thats really kl they got that together in like 2 days RIP



  70. 70

    I really can't stop this consuming grief. I hate to say that I had my doubt's about him. And I truely hate myself for judging without knowing the truth. I live my life trying not to judge people for the way they choose to live there lives and I wish I would have done so earlier in my life.



  71. 71

    Its silly, but that brought tears to my eyes more than anything else I've seen in the last 2 days. To think they put that together in such a short time is amazing. That was pretty fun to watch.



  72. 72

    Awesome..



  73. 73

    amazing!



  74. 74

    Amazing



  75. 75

  76. 76

    WOW! THATS HOW WE LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON! HE WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND LOVED BY THIS WHOLE WORLD! HE IS A LEGENDARY!



  77. 77

  78. 78

    RIP.



  79. 79

  80. 80

    What a wonderful tribute to Michael's memory. The dancing is amazing once again.



  81. 81

  83. 83

    Michael Jackson was the most talented man ever lived! RIP!



  84. 84

    AMAZING!

    I WAS MOVED TO TEARS. I CANT STOP CRYING.



  85. 85

    What a lovely tribute! MJ certainly touched many people in the world through his music :D



  86. 86

    Ugh. Poor guys. Their version of Thriller was awesome, but this is just…too bad for words.



  87. 87

    that is strange……….i guess filipinos are good people…..they are just poor and had a hard life that some got into trouble unlike here in america were criminals are really something you should scared off……. nice tribute but i didn't see usa flag. they should have one beside their own.



  88. 88

    Wow, that really touched my heart…it made me cry. What a really cool tribute. It's also something positive that these inmates are doing that they can be proud of. R.I.P. Michael may your music bring people, nations, the world together.



  89. 89

    AMAZING!!



  90. 90

    aww so sweet! brought a tear to my eye!! rip mj



  91. 91

    Touching….



  92. 92

    I think that was amazing!
    ♥RIP MJ♥



  93. 93

    it's quite irritating to see you sudden shift of moods perez. firstly, you accuse Michael with such ignorance and coldness you made yourself look like nothing more than an idiotic and heartless person (actually, you ARE). however, though you made the mistake of falsely and wrongly accusing MJ, instead of apologizing for it, you simply remove the blog and replace it with a countless amount of other ones expressing your "sympathy". if you really want us to feel sorry for you and support you when people go after you, then simply act like a human being who deserves our help. it's extremely shameful that you bash people one minute, then love them the next and then ask for our help when something hits you in the face. the people, and especially MJ deserves an apology from you.



  94. 94

    wow, that was amazing. i wonder what they are in prison for? and for how long? glad they have something to keep them occupied.



  95. 95

    Re: bearmonty – HEY YOU! BEFORE YOU WRITE SOME STUPID COMMENTS MAYBE YOU SHOULD DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST. YOU DONT EVEN KNOW A SINGLE THING ABOUT THE PRISONERS OR THE HEAD OF THE PRISON. YOURE SUCH A DUMB ASS!!!!!



  96. 96

    Re: rachelinala – mostly of the prisoners there are drug related cases like selling drugs.



  97. 97

    i still can't believe he's dead. he's michael jackson, a god of my generation. just wow :(



  98. 98

    nice (: almost make me tear.



  99. 99

    That was awesome.
    RIP Michael Jackson.



  100. 100

    FRAUD……..YOU MADE YOUR READERS BELEIVED YOU ARE GOIN TO DONATE THE MONEY TO THAT FOUNDATION BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE SAID FOUNDATION HAS NO CLUE ABOUT THIS. ANOTHER LIES FROM YOUR VILE SCUMPIG?
