    Thank you Michael for sharing your God given talent with the world. Rest now until our Heavenly Father returns to claim his own. 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11.

  • yep

    That pic is from the “In the closet” video . I watched it on youtube last night . I had totally forgot naomi Campbell was the lady in the video.

  • memei

    RIP MJ love that picture. still cant belive it. Hope he is in peace now.

  • E

    Great picture of the great one. I wonder if there will ever be another one quite like him. Oh, I miss the 70s and 80s for the music alone. Life was so much simpler then too.

  • micheal :(

    he was amazing of all the time..

  • brange fan from greece

    i will definitely buy this.im still crying everytime i saw news about his death.RIP michael.i love you

  • love him

    Love the MJ Pic on the Magazine….
    -
    He was really good looking black and when he turned white he was still kinda cute, wonder what happened after that…
    -
    I pray he made peace with God before he passed for FAME can distract us from the Eternal knowing our life here is not forever…

  • kate

    A great, great picture. It was his best looking, perhaps happiest time. May his soul find peace whereever we go on the oher side.

    @LolaSvelt:

    mike will make so many covers in the coming days and weeks…but i think i will like this one the most!

  • http://teamhudgens.org Naomi

    In a way, I’m happy he’s getting the attention he’s getting now. He completely redefined music and dance and with the best will in the world no one has yet grazed his genius or his achievements in music and I doubt anyone ever will.

    However, I’ve got to say some of these tributes and sudden love by the media and public is getting quite nauseating just because the hypocrisy is outstanding.

    When he needed the love and support and understanding, no one gave it to him. The media and public alike including all these sudden ‘dear old friends’ took pleasure in anticipating his downfall and reporting the next salacious story with glee. Now, he’s suddenly a ‘beloved’ icon.

    I wish he knew he was this ‘beloved’ and that all this people would be ‘deeply affected’ by his death, when he was alive and living a few miles away from many of them.

    oh well, that’s showbiz for you. Exist to tear down the living and pay tributes to the dead.

  • MELODY

    I love you michael and thanks for all!
    Best performer, dancer, singer of all time!

  • http://justjared think +

    I`m still dazed over the whole episode…it just seems sureal. wish it wasn`t true. Wish he`d been given more time to have found peace and happiness here on earth. Wish the world had more compassion for those who are a little different.

    RIP King Michael Jackson

  • Jessica

    This is all just so tragic and sad. I still can’t believe he’s dead. This is all just so sudden! But may he finally rest in peace and find happiness. The contributions and talent he gave to the world shall always be remembered . His music and dancing will live on forever. RIP Michael Jackson. :-(

  • wtf

    Why waste $$$ honoring a pedophile. Sick, sick, sick.

  • marisa

    RIP- a true legend is gone. but he will live on forever.

  • Richard P

    My favourite clip In the closet sexy,black/white,

    King of Pop FOREVER

    Michael jackson thank you all wonderful clips e beautiful songs

  • Halli

    Love MJ!!!
    Ughhh. I’m sad.

  • Christopher

    @wtf:

    Both cases were thrown out becuase they were lies.
    Evan Chandler, the first boy that said this lie about MJ just confessed yesterday that his dad made him lie about him being molested so they can cash in.

    Same thing with that poor Latino family that tried to swindle a lost man who was very wrong to share his bed with kids, but NO DOUBT in my mind he was and is innocent of these liars. The truth will come out more and more now that he is gone.

    RIP Michael Jackson

    Well said Naomi. I have thought the same thing since his death. The world is full of hypocrites and people filled with envy and jealousy when you are at the top. May he rest in peace. Will miss him.

  • uhhh

    He was the most talented man ever lived

    RIP Michael Jackson

  • uhhh

    He was the most talented man ever lived

    RIP Michael Jackson

  • irish girl

    I liked MJ, but this over the top tribute stuff is getting out of hand. There were American politicians who had a moment of silence. Please. That was a bit too much.
    .
    Respect him, but lets not get carried away.

    @Naomi:

    Exist to tear down the living and pay tributes to the dead.

    That is a true quote

  • http://aol susan

    I absolutely, positively do not get this. Yes, I thought MJ was an icon and defintely changed the music industry, but the media is acting like it did when JFK died or MLK. Give me a break. This is absolutely ridiculous.

  • e

    I love MJ. But I sure as hell don’t care to here what Kobe or oscar delhoya have to say about him. yuk. Musicians, yes, ordinary people, yes. but not these dipsh*ts.

  • autumn M

    I loved MJ so much. So sad about his passing. Beautiful cover though. RIP KING OF POP

  • Sarah

    @ susan: ‘but the media is acting like it did when JFK died or MLK. Give me a break. This is absolutely ridiculous.”

    Susan, I know I may be a bit young to completely understand the era of Michael Jackson, but for people about 20 and under this the most tragic major death that has taken place in our lifetimes. We were too young when Princess Diana died so to younger people this death is a big deal. And we also have to realize that Michael was the most famous man in the world, the most famous deserve this kind of coverage with their deaths.
    They’re simply the best, not a normal person on the street.

  • Jill

    Wow, great photo. They should make a poster out of that one.

  • http://www.modavesosyete.com pelin

    wowww a great one. I will get this mag..rest in peace Michael !!

  • Sean

    @irish girl:

    You do realize how much $$$ these magazines can make by putting him on the cover, right?

  • Bastardus Grull

    If you don’t like tribute pages then don’t click on articles about recently deceased stars.

  • Bastardus Grull

    BTW, wtf are you people to tell others how to mourn anyway?

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    no doubt that it will sell
    they interviewed a lot of ppl quickly

  • ashley

    I’m getting sadder about this by the day. Watching VH1′s MJ videos marathon today brings back his genius in a way that makes it all so sad. Thoughts and prayers to the whole Jackson family, who must be in complete shock. Michael you will never be forgotten. You shared your incredible talent with us for many years, but you are gone far too soon. The world will never forget you. May you find peace.

  • meg

    Beautiful pic cover. Very well choosen. A nice way to remember him.

  • brina

    bless my heart feels so haevy i feel like i lost a close friend…like a family member

  • rocky

    Love this cover. Still can’t believe he’s gone!!

  • stickin with a name

    90% of you wouldn’t be showing him this support if he were alive and being accused of molesting another child. So spare me.

    Now that he’s dead we all love him? Right.

  • shoes4life

    There will never be nor is there another entertainer like Michael Jackson. He was definitely one of a kind and the only really, truly creative artist alive who has impacted not just our country but the WORLD!

    He stardom was global and no one has ever accomplished that, no one!

    God bless the Jackson family in this sad but joyous time. I say joyous because Michael may not have had a chance to make a come back (to me he never left) through touring but his name is being praised and acknowledge BIG TIME in his passing, sad but great!

  • FOXY BROWN

    I have always loved Michael Jackson–always have always will!!!

  • Sassy

    I love that the TV Guide and Time covers both show him at a very minimalist time—hair back from his face, plain shirt. Very nice tributes.

  • Sassy

    and p.s. I could not BELIEVE it when I heard “Billie Jean” for the first time. That was a song that everyone busted a move to. And if you deny it, you’re a LIAR! LOL!!

  • R.I.P MJ

    #43 wakeup. this is how society and the media treat huge stars. Build them up to break them down, and when they die… build them back up.

    @LolaSvelt:
