i'm so sick of the Michael Jackson drama. he was a great musician, but not such a great person. i'm glad his children will have the chance to attempt a normal life and maybe even get to meet other children or go to a normal (even if rich private) school rather than having tutors brought in. i'm sick of all the hype saying how much he changed the world and how great a man he was. does no one remember what a freak and accused child molester he is? does no one realize that he probably overdosed and will now join the countless other musicians who died? what did he do charity wise? how did he give back? what is your opinion? i'm not denying his influence on music, please dont tell me about the moonwalk or jackson 5..

Unfortunately we're still going to be hearing about him for some time to come...they'll probably bombard us with more news about his autopsy results, his doctors, the medications he used....blah, blah, blah. Yup--I'm fed up with it all as well

If you do some research you will find that Michael Jackson actually did do a fair bit of charity work to "give something back", but that kind of thing was always overshadowed by the bad stuff and the accusations of child molestation. I think it was very sad that he passed and i was a fan of his music but i think there are far more relevant stories that should now be in the news, there are some tragic things going on in the world at the moment that i feel deserve the airtime that Michael Jackson is now taking up.

I'm really sick and tired of the Michael Jackson drama as well. This whole situation has been on the news for so long. It's just getting a little old and tiring. I completely agree with you. ENOUGH already.
