    That was beautiful. We miss you MJ :(

    SPIKE did it. Quite beautiful.

    Sorry but anyone who actually followed the facts in both cases against Mr.
    Jackson and not the media fueled propaganda would know that he was innocent. The FBI releasing the files was a God send to those that knew Mr. Jackson was innocent. In those files it states that the US Attorneys even passed on the case because there was not valid evidence in their eyes to bring charges against Mr. Jackson. But again there was a vendetta against him by the Santa Barbara prosecutors and police. RIP Mr. Jackson.

    Re: BlackGaySocialite
    I agree and this is a beautifully produce video.



  34. 34

    Q: How can you tell if Michael Jackson had a date?

    A: There was a big wheel parked outside his house.



  35. 35

    Nobody gave a crap until he died…



  36. 36

    What exactly did Spike Lee 'direct' in this little viddie ?!?



  37. 37

    Re: BlackGaySocialite – Very well said ;)



  38. 38

    "Heartwarming" Perez? Really you would say such a thing related to a man who dogged out so many times?? Give it a rest and while your at it do something good in your life for once by apologizing.
    R.I.P Michael

    RIP Michael J



  50. 50

    This is a lovely tribute and even a decent song. His voice may have been raspy and his mezzo soprano range was history, but it was still Mike. It's not something I need to play on repeat or anything, though.



  51. 51

    Re: Your S-M Girlfriend – You and bongo should meet up, fall in love, and live an ignorantly blissful life. Also at some point during your lifetime together you should have a study session everyday on the truth about Michael Joseph Jackson b/c what you 2 just said is sooo far from the truth.

    Re: MJ fan59 – I just like to get everyone riled up. No harm



  54. 54

    I watched this earlier but I forgot to comment. This is the cutest video….its like a tribute!! Spike Lee did an amazing job with it, it kinda has a dream state feel to it. I love the part where Michael has all the guards behind him and he climbs the fence thing that all the fans are standing behind. Its amazing….and the house in Gary, I'm reading Moonwalk by Michael Jackson right now and he wrote how growing up, the house didn't seem small but when he went back when he was older, you walked three steps in and you were already out the back. Its an amazing video!!!



  55. 55

    Wow. Beautiful! Great Job Spike. Thanks Perez



  56. 56

    Spike Lee did a fantastic job. Very heartwarming tribute



  57. 57

    Oh my god i got a little teary eyed at the end when it showed his childhood house and the lights on with his hat and gloves outside :(
    and then the paper where he wrote "my name is Michael Jackson" awww.
    I always sticked up for Michael Jackson when he was alive everytime someone made a dumb comment about him i always corrected them idk i always stood up for him like i really knew him because he was such a beautiful person and its really stupid when people say stupid things about him. Well anyways like i was saying i always stood by him when he was alive and will continue on doing so .Noone will ever ever ever be the next King of Pop you cant replace Michael with noone.



  58. 58

    Makes me cry! :(



  59. 59

    Re: Your S-M Girlfriend – Oh really?child molester?
    i forgot about the time they said he was guilty for molesting a child !i wonder why i forgot ?…hmmmpp ..because IT NEVER HAPPEND! he's innocent untill proven guilty you dumbass!



  60. 60

    Re: BlackGaySocialite – I know, if you read the press crap than your not getting the facts….what was being said in magazines, the "facts" were ALL lies, he didn't even pay $20 million, his insurance company did (against Michaels wishes) and it wasn't $20 million, it was less than $15 million. If you actually read the official stuff, you'll see the only thing Michael was guilty of was being too nice to people who didn't deserve it!!!! And this isn't (Really) it, the new Black Eyed Peas albums is going to have a new Michael Jackson song on it thats never been heard before. Plus theres over a 100 demos that the Jackson family collected from Michaels house after he died!!



  61. 61

    Re: prim&proper – His smile was amazing….even when other things changed, his smile and his eyes always stayed the same. I think he had one of the best smiles in the buisness!! =)

    Not a big fan of Spike Lee but this is beautiful.

  65. 65

    Re: bongo Re: KillerBunniesRe: Your S-M GirlfriendRe: pepperkitty – he was certainley not a child molester he was never found guilty they had no proof get it? nooooo proof at all and to the people who say "who cares" me and alot of people do ALOT . look at the video and youll see how many people care you idiots . im sure if noone cared people would have never been talking about him in the first place . if noone cares then why does he have more fans than anyone? .say you dont care but dont say "noone cares" or "who cares" because alot of people do and im sure weather you like him or not you care and you give a damn because you sure cared enough to spend a couple minutes of your lives commenting on this post . the first family who accused him of molesting their son settled out of court , do you guys really think if he really molested that boy they would have took the money? im sure if he really molested that boy they would have wanted him locked up forever but yes they took the money because the money was all they wanted in the first place ,thats why they lied.and michael didnt pay off the other family thats why they took him to court . they had macauly caulkin and these other boys go to court and testify they said michael never molested them , the police searched everything they couldnt find anything they had no proof .michaels innocent he will always be innocent now shut up.



  66. 66

    Great job spike. Miss you, MJ.



  67. 67

    Re: bongo – "I just like to get everyone riled up. No harm"

    We all know that but my question to you is why in the world would you ever admit to that??



  68. 68

    Re: la poopsiekins – "His voice may have been raspy and his mezzo soprano range was history, but it was still Mike. It's not something I need to play on repeat or anything, though"

    I just wanted to comment on this b/c it sounds as if you thought this was a fairly new song. Michael worked on this song along time ago. If you saw "This is It" you could see that Michael's range was still there. No harm meant just wanted to point that out b/c I would have hoped that someone would have done the same for me ;)



  69. 69

    @bongo..fuck off =D
    FYI: The video was awesome.

    That was beautiful. Spike did a good job (:
    LONG LIVE THE KING.



  75. 75

    Re: bongo
    "spike left out the fondle scene"

    -maybe those types of things get U all excited….MJ never did that (the verdict from the trial proved it!) U have a sick mind! Get a life!



  76. 76

    I don't know, Perez, I'm actually kind of surprised at Spike Lee…
    .
    Sentamentalizing a tragic life and the twisted degree of idol worship his "fans" projected onto him, doesn't seem like Spike's style. Maybe he's getting mushy in his sold age.
    .
    The scenes of Michael's kid bicycle and the swingset in teh back yard were particularly poigannt since he, by his own account, had no childhood, nor did the smiles and cute kid dancing show the beatings and brutality of money-grubbing stage struck father and ineffectual mother.
    .
    All in all, the vid is not the truthful look that Michael Jackson deserves.



  77. 77

    Re: bongo – While your quip about the alleged "fondling" was probably meant as a clever one-liner, it is a good example of the crass ignorance held by a lot of people about the charges against Michael Jackson.
    .
    He was a child in aman's body and needed so desperately to nurture and be nurtured. The guy was a-sexual, which makes the sexualization of his attempts to have nurturing friendship with boys that were his age emotionally so absurd and so tragic. I have no doubt that he walked very close to a line that shouldn't be crossed but I also believe he was naive, innocent and desperately seeking gebuine. non-sexual love. To suggest he was a pedophile with prurient lust for boys is horrendously wrong.



  78. 78

    WOW, NICE TO SPIKE LEE DOING SOMETHING CREDIBLE AND KEEPING HIS DAMN RACIST MOUTH SHUT FOR A CHANGE. WUT A WEASEL AND SHORTY!!!



  79. 79

    THIS GUY WAS WAY FUCKED UP. HE TRIED TO BLAME EVERYBODY( HIS DAD HIS CHILDHOOD OR LACK THERE OF) TO GET AWAY WITH ABUSING KARMA. AND THAT'S WHAT HE DID. MAYBE HIS LIFE WAS BAD FOR A REASON????? JUST ASKING????? HE WAS HIS WORST ENEMY AND A TERRIBLE MORAL ROLE MODEL.



  80. 80

    "Take a peek at the heartwarming vid"

    With all due respect Perez, your comments about MJ now are very different than what U wrote of him when he was alive. Using the term "wacko jacko" constantly… Seems like U grow a new found respect for people when they pass away. Doesn't do much good now, does it?



  81. 81

    Michael will continue to bring joy and happiness to people through his music even though he is gone. That's all that matters. I'm pretty sure he doesn't care what haters and gossip mongers think of him now. He's at peace now, and the maliciousness of others can no longer hurt him. R.I.P. MJ, you will NEVER be forgotten.



  82. 82

    Michael sounds beautiful. He was a perfectionist, and I'm glad that the video wasn't half-assed. Actually, the vid is pretty well done.

    Props.
    :)
    R.I.P. MJ

    Re: superawesomedave – You want to talk about Karma.. Where is Evan Chandler?? More then likely burning in hell from committing suicide after years of not being able to live w/ the fact that he was a big liar who hurt the person who was only trying to help, be loved and accepted by a somewhat "normal" family that he rarely got the oppurtunity to encounter b/c people looked at him as a Mega Star and not as a human being. I wish Michael's car would have never broken down that day which caused his path to cross paths w/ the Chandlers. Hey "Bongo" you've found yourself another soulmate.



  84. 84

    no life idiots that try to say he is a molester because there was like so much evidence right???hmm really guess thats why the FBI went through all his computer files he ever went on a found absoulutly nothing no kid porno no evidence what so ever the cases against mike was bullshit and it shouldnt even went to trial with 0% evidence everything was comletly he said she said bullshit.and for the people who are so tired of hearing about him WHY THE FUCK DO YOU COME TO SITES ABOUT HIM AND THEN SPEND MORE OF YOUR PATHETIC LIFE COMMENTING ABOUT YOUR DISSAPROVAL who gives a shit besides the fact that MJ was the biggest most popular celeb to walk this fuckin earth and the general public is still interested in him this video is for his fans and here is a little secret that you must not know YOU DONT HAVE TO WATCH you could have actually just scrolled down so you wouldnt even have to read the story OMG you people are so fuckin stupid



  85. 85

    any way the video was pretty good i wasnt so much into the music as i was into the video i mean i love mj but "this is it"aint my favorite song btw i dont know why people get sad whent they see this he looks happy in all these pics and clips



  86. 86

    I thought that with Tiger Woods knocking him out of the news, we had FINALLY come to the end of hearing about this weird, perverted fuck. Sure he was talented but, hes been DEAD for SIX MONTHS. Enough!



  87. 87

    Ppl leaving all the hateful comments…learn something from all the sadness the world has experienced this year..not just MJ's death…for those that arn't fans..anyone else you have lost or the natural disasters that have hurt so many…This is it…STOP HATING.



  88. 88

    i luv MJ
    sooo muchh
    hes my angell



  89. 89

    may god bless him.
    we will never know for sure what happened behind closed doors but we will always know he genuinely cared for his fans and the happiness of others.
    rest in peace angel.

    Re: DukeSteele – OMG! What other language can it be said in for U to understand?! If you don't like MJ, skip over the articles!! Why are U wasting your time commenting about him if it annoys U so much??! It's so funny how haters still manage to throw in their 2 cents…it just goes to show that MJ was the best!



  91. 91

    Re: AriLove13
    omg! i know! michael's smile was so amazing! Michael had the most beautiful ear to ear smile. and I totally thought the same about his eyes and smile remaining the same throughout surgeries….although towards the end of his life I did notice that it was difficult for him to smile as broadly as he used to. :(
    p.s. Janet also has *that* beautiful smile too….



  92. 92

    Re: DukeSteele – "hes been DEAD for SIX MONTHS. Enough"

    I guess you thought that was some really much needed information that we all didn't already know. Why are you posting a comment on a Michael Jackson post if you have had enough?? That makes absolutely no sense… He was not weird nor was he perverted and please get used to hearing about him b/c Michael will be talked about even yrs. after you and I have left this earth. Have you not realized how much the world has been mourning over Michael?? Obviously you have b/c you have come to Perez Hilton's site to whine about it. Here's another friend for you "bongo." Boy all you haters should really all migrate together on a deserted island and do nothing but study. Study the facts and study Michael's lyrics b/c you all sound very ignorant.



  93. 93

    Re: DukeSteele – lol then why did you just spend your time not only clicking on this site but also leaving a comment i mean NORMAL logical people just ignore shit they dont care about or dont want to hear about you think just because your NOBODY ASS dont want to hear about something the whole world is suppose to stop get the fuck out of here and get a damn life if you dont like hearing about him stay the fuck off his sites you dumb shit…problem solved ; )



  94. 94

    spike's a little behind the curve… this jackson worship crap is OVER. the man was a freakish drug addict and the archetypal child molester. the final shot in this commercial should have been of a bottle of 'jesus juice', a jar of nose putty, and a syringe.

    95

    Love the ending!! :)



  96. 96

    Obviously his insurance company paid off the kid in 1993 for a REASON. They had no choice. He wanted to fight it because he has no idea about business. Insurance companies do. They don't want to pay off people unless they are backed into a corner. Sorry, it comes from years working in the insurance industry. I will say that he was a great performer and I loved his music. But if he didn't die, he would still be a freak to all of you or you just wouldn't bother speaking about him. I think his best bet was to not have children sleeping in his bed. He admitted he did that and if he did nothing else, fine, but stopping that behavior would have helped him be out of trouble in the future. He knew he could get away with everything. Even taking any drug he wanted all the time. His fault. All of it, his fault. An adult takes some blame.



  97. 97

    Michael Really loved what he was doing and I thk we share somethings in common. He enjoys life.



  98. 98

    Re: ScaryLisa – Why should Michael need to change himself just because people got the wrong idea about him? One thing that people loved most about Michael is no matter what people accused him of, he didn't change himself because he knew he did nothing wrong. People who do bad things usually try to hide what it is that they are doing wrong. Michael never once made excuses for his decisions regarding liking to spend time w/ kids over adults. It's not that he disliked adults he just had more in common w/ kids b/c he allowed himself to have a child's heart and kids tended to not stab him in the back. He said many times that him being around kids was out of innocence. People looking at that negatively are the one's that need to change their mind set not. It's a shame that people took his so called "eccentricities" and targeted him as being something that was totally out of his character. He was more misunderstood then he was eccentric. I've used this analogy before.. If someone accused me of stealing from a particular store and I know I didn't and in return I frequent this same store w/o thinking nothing of it am I wrong for going back? I'm not the one at fault.. Michael was not wrong for continuing to pass love onto children b/c it was all out of innocence. Had he totally cut out children from being around him then he would have been giving all those who accused him validation.



  99. 99

    Re: ScaryLisa – "He wanted to fight it because he has no idea about business."

    He wanted to fight it b/c he wanted to prove his innocence. On the other hand, his insurance company and any other people on his payroll at the time profited more from him not going to trial. Michael has always been successful but at the time of the first allegations he was on another high point career wise. Had he gone to court it would have drug on for awhile, he would have more then likely loss endorsements/oppurtunities, and his insurance company would have been looked at as a company w/ a client who was more then likely guilty of a criminal act (which wasn't the case.) In their eyes sometimes it's just best to give the person what they asked for and Evan Chandler was the one who did ask for it. Why he would ask for money over the so called justice for his child is the question though.. He wanted to fight for his innocence and he didn't want to be labeled as what alot of people label him now as obviously being guilty b/c he didn't go to trial.



  100. 100

    The talent, the persona and the person are magical. The magic is the perfection and combination of talent and work ethic he brought to his craft. To watch MJ is to watch an artist at his peak. I only hope he didn't suffer TOO much. His art and message, if you take him seriously, has raised the bar for human responsibility. Lets not let his death be in vain. Lets learn from his message!!!
