I’m so saddened, I refuse to believe it’s true. King of Pop Michael Jackson died yesterday afternoon of cardiac arrest. He was 50.
Everybody knows what a music talent he was, but guess the best way to described a person and to mourn is to hear what other people, those who knew him and those who admired him, say about Jackson.
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.”
I think we’ll mourn his loss as well as the loss of ourselves as children listening to Thriller on the record player. Dazed in the studio. A major strand of our cultural DNA has left us. I truly hope he is memorialized as the ’83 moonwalking, MTV owning, mesmerizing, unstoppable, invincible Michael Jackson. RIP MJ.”
If it were not for Michael Jackson I would not be where or who I am today. His Music and Legacy will live on forever. Prayers to the fam R.I.P.”
Michael Jackson was my inspiration. Love and blessings.”
RIP Michael Jackson. He was the King and the reason I started singing. I will miss him.”
P Diddy Combs:
Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat. He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him!”
Lisa Marie Presley, Michael Jackson’s ex wife:
I am so very sad and confused with every emotion possible. I am heartbroken for his children, who I know were everything to him, and for his family. This is such a massive loss on so many levels, words fail me.”
My heart is overcome with sadness for the devastating loss of my true friend Michael. He was an extraordinary friend, artist and contributor to the world. I join his family and his fans in celebrating his incredible life and mourning his untimely passing.”
Michael’s publicist Mr Clifford:
It is a terrible shock, you wonder if the strain of getting fit for this major tour proved too much.
When he called to speak to Jade he was anxious to visit her, unfortunately she was too ill but they spoke on the phone and his final words to her were that he wanted to see her and wanted her to come to his show. Sadly she is no longer with us and now he is also no longer with us, it is very sad.
He was always someone who seemed to find it difficult to cope with fame. He was a great talent. I was already a superstar when he was in his teens but then he was with four others. Then all of a sudden he was on his own and he did seem to find it difficult to cope.”
Quincy Jones, produced Michael’s Thriller album:
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. 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. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”
Donny Osmond, Michael’s friend and godfather of his three children:
I’ve known Michael since we both were about 13 years old. He once told me that because we went through similar experiences as teenagers, I was the only person who ever understood him. Words can’t express the sadness I feel right now. My prayers go out to his family and his children.”
Michael Jackson was born in 1958 and started his singing career at the age of 11 as a member of the Jackson 5. H launched his solo career in 1971.

Jackson was supposed to kick off his comeback tour on July 13, 2009 in London. The world tour included 50 concerts. Ironically enough, the tour was called This Is It.
This is it, Michael. Rest In Peace. We’ll miss you.
