Madonna: Crying Over Michael Jackson

Madonna: Crying Over Michael Jackson

Celebrities are releasing statements via their reps regarding Michael Jackson‘s shocking death.

“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.” — Madonna

“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.” — Lisa Marie Presley, who was married to Michael in the mid-1990s

“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.” — Brooke Shields, who briefly dated Michael

“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. Divinity brought our souls together on ‘The Wiz’ and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the ’80s. 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.” — Quincy Jones, who produced Michael’s Thriller album

“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.” — Donny Osmond

“I can’t find the words right now to express how deeply sadden [sic] I am by Michael’s passing. We have lost a genius and a true ambassador of not only Pop music, but of all music. He has been an inspiration to multiple generations and I will always cherish the moments I shared with him on stage and all of the things I learned about music from him and the time we spent together. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.” — Justin Timberlake

“This is such a tragic loss and a terrible day. The incomparable Michael Jackson has made a bigger impact on music than any other artist in the history of music. He was magic. He was what we all strive to be. He will always be the king of pop!” — Beyonce Knowles

    The UK newspaper the Sun says that he stopped breathing after getting injected with Demerol, a morphine like drug for pain. Other said his personal doctor was there. I suspect this will become a legal mess. Another “star” hooked, probably, on prescription painkillers. We shall see.

    I am so deeply saddened…regardless of what anyone thinks about him and his life, you cannot deny his impact on the music world…he was an icon…many of my wonderful childhood memories surround the music I grew up hearing and MJ was a favorite in my house…I feel very nostalgic tonight and hope that MJ will be remembered for his musical contributions…he inspired so many future artists…I am just shocked and saddened!!

    ((P.S. I really want to avoid cynicism here, but I admit I chuckled a bit when I read Madonna’s comment…didn’t they have a public feud not too many years back? I am not sure I find her comment authentic…when was even the last time they probably spoke or communicated?))

    Re: the celeb comments – what a bunch of fakes. They did’nt have anything supportive or nice to say in the last 10 years of his life and now they cant stop crying and are devasted.

    Dee Says:

    Don’t know about others, but Madonna said very supportive things about him in a not so distant past:
    “I haven’t seen that documentary [Living With Michael Jackson], but it sounds disgusting, like he [Martin Bashir] exploited a friendship. Publicly humiliating someone for your own gain will only come and haunt you. I can assure you, all these people will be sorry. God’s going to have his revenge.”

    cam Says:

    these artists have said it all & the kindness and respect they have for Michael shows what an amazing person he was. It is not for us to judge him – I respect him as an artist & person – love and prayers to his children & family. RIP

    nat Says:

    My heart goes to his family, specially the 2 children he left behind that’s the biggest tragedy here. These kids will grow up without a father and to me that’s the biggest tragedy of all. I hope that his family can find the comfort and peace they need.

    H. Says:

    If he had been living next to you and you had children you probably wouldn’t have a hard time judging him, cam. I am with everyone in the fact that he was an iconic entertainer and I can see that people would find his passing sad in that regard. But as far as the personal stuff I can’t believe how much everyone is praising what a ‘ wonderful person’ he was. Sorry, he paid off enough children’s parents that I’m not just buying that one.
