  • No. I'm just sad.
  • Yes, I did. I've been crying on and off since he died - mostly during tribute shows on the television or when seeing pictures of him as a child.
  • No, I was just 'stunned' like the rest of the world. ;o)
  • NO not at all but i do when our troops are killed in coflict.
  • Just like Elvis, death was a gift for him! I was kind of happy for him.
  • Are you serious?????
  • He is better off than you and I. Honestly, death is a gift for him.
  • Nope it just shocked me and started me thinking how old im getting i was in High School when Thriller hit stores and i remember being about 5yrs old or so watching the jackson 5 cartoon they used to have .no tears but a shocking end of a era for sure.
  • No, but my jaw definitely hit the floor. Didn't see that one coming.
  • I did. It went on for about 15 minutes, and then I was upset for about an hour more. Thank you, Megan.
  • The artists who actually create their own music...when they die...that effects me far more than the performers who die. Him and Elvis were great performers. But that's all they were. They weren't musicians and they weren't lyricists.
  • No, I'm not really that bothered. Death comes to us all. But if I was to be upset, I'd have had to be mega confused too, because they took soooo long before they actually confirmed it that I would probably have been over it by then.
  • No, I didn't. I was more stunned, but I felt like crying later, but didn't. I was saddened though. Anytime an actor, entertainer, or musician passes away and I have enjoyed their work I feel this way. I don't know how people don't feel anything if they have a favorite celebrity they admire because of their work.
  • no,but it did stun me
  • Not one bit and even though I loved The album Thriller when I was a kid, I just can't seem to find that certain emotion I know I should be feeling right now maybe it's because he became more of joke than a serious artists with all the weird shit he was doing and I'm not just talking about the kids but his behavior, his life style, the things he bought, those strange off the wall items he just loved buying, the plastic surgery for crying out loud...He was a great performer and left us some really cool albums to listen to but in the last 15 years or so, he really became something other than the Michael Jackson we all grew up with and that in itself is very sad...
  • i teared up, but i survived.
  • Somehow the surreality of it left me unfazed. It was like hearing the news about the WTC Towers being felled - I knew it was real, but it seemed so distant and fabricated that it had no real emotional impact on me.
  • I did later!
  • no i laughed but i was suprised first
  • No. But I do feel sorry for him.
  • no i didn't but instead i danced to my favorite songs from him! i was trying to remember the good times.
  • No I cried when John Lennon was shot down like a dog. I love him and his music.
  • I certainly did.
  • No, I didn't. And not when Elvis, John Lennon or Jurt Cobain died either. Nor Jimi Hendrix or Roy Orbison. I never knew them personally so how can I weep when they die? Their music lives on so in a way, we still have them with us.
  • No,I did not know him personally.I have my own life to deal with and people I know are allot more important to me than a celebrity,and celebrity.
  • No not at all. I will admit though, a couple days later on our local news they were shoing clips from all over the world where people were dancing to his music in the streets and I got a little choked up but I think it was more of the fact that he really touched so many people with his music rather than his death.
  • No but I was shocked. I almost cried when that's ALL that was on tv though. I'm sorry that he passed away but I was shocked at how that's ALL anybody was talking about, what about Farrah?
  • Yes I cried.
  • No of course not. Michael Jackson was an entertainer, I did not know him personally and neither did most, if not all of you. I certainly don't wish anything bad off on anyone and do not want people to die but if someone cried, did you cry when Ed McMahon died, did you cry when Farrah Fawcett died, what about long time actor Karl Malden, or Billy Mays? It would be the same logic. Frankly and I am going to get slammed for this but it looks like he had a drug problem. If it made him have a heartattack it was more or less self-induced. I don't have a lot of sympathy for that.
