Octopus, new artists have the Internet to promote their talent, nowadays. They can have their own YT channel. Why would you care what others think of your music tastes. If you like something, listen to it. Just do it in private. Kidding. There's a market for so-called disposable junk music, same with junk food. It sells. People like it.

Let me guess. Does being the "dead guy's" cheerleader put a roof over your head? Does it put food on your table?

Michael died in front of his children and in the years after his acquittal they watched him sink lower and lower into drugs. They watched him turn skin and bones before their innocent little eyes. Nothing about a posthumous album success will erase away those tragic years from their childhood. That is the legacy Michael Jackson gave them.

I agree, that must have been horrible for them to watch their "father" go down like that over the years. I remember seeing a video of MJ being pushed in a wheelchair around the courtyard of his home, because he was too messed up to even walk. What kind of a father is that?

Not only that, but Paris actually came into his room as he was dying, or already dead, and had to see that awful situation. I bet the poor girl will never get that image out of her mind. Pathetic!

Not if you enjoy what you do for a living. I can't think of anything worse than the fake lifestyle celebrities feel they have to live. I guess I should be angry my father didn't beat me and my brothers, and force us into the music industry. Many people don't want to be entertainers. Elvis is dead too and I won't be like him either, or Jimmy Hendrix, or anyone else in the music industry.

It's funny people like Boss Hogg believe attaining wealth turns your life picture perfect. If only he could realize people with incredible wealth invariably are the unhappiest people.

Only if it comes along with milk and story time as MJ said he gives to his special young friends.

Many dead artists put albums on the charts but they do not need excessive promotion to get there. You act as if the dead clown did something special from beyond the grave. He still failed to go number one. Besides, the clown is dead and can not celebrate.

That is why an annoying songs like "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and "Pac Man Fever" can go to number one. There has always been junk on the charts. While true that artists have to basically promote themselves today, the music industry is still doing horrible business. I never cared what people thought of my musical tastes. I liked a variety of different artists but it was the eighties. It seems to me that most everything new I hear today is disposable junk.

Apparently, fame and fortune does not mean that the celebrity is truly happy. Wacko did everything wrong and was never satisfied. He was stuck being a clown that lived in a fantasy world that did not exist.

For those who said you can be happy with being wealthy, Michael was wealthy at one point but he was miserable because he was brought up miserably and instead of seeking help for that misery passed on that miserableness to others, be it children or adults. He was a truly unstable man. No amount of wealth was going to change that.

The only way all of his money could have made him happy would have been to spend some of it, on professional counseling. Then he would have been able to let go of all that baggage and live a happier life.

I don't. But, I do know that I prefer being alive, rather than being dead by a drug overdose, like MJ. Don't you?
