    Please no more Says:

    Yes, he died. I am sorry that he did . . .BUT ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!
    These people who are honoring him, did not give a crap about him when he was alive, and made fun of him. . .making him to the person he became, which is sad and horrible. So to me these so called celebs that are saddened by his death, are full of crap themselves. Only the true fans are saddened. I am not fan, but I am sorry he passed, but please I am so sick of hearing about it.

    I should think so. It’s not what Michael would have wanted. He was so fiercely private and to put his body on public display would have been a travesty.

    @sigh: Yeh because all this public viewing would have done is turned him into the sideshow attraction people always saw him to be…People staring at his nose and crap. It was the dumbest idea… I love you Michael. PLEASE leat MJ rest in Peace.

    mm i think they need to just let this man REST IN PEACE. like i agree with the fact that now he’s died all these people that said bad words about him are now acting as if they are truly saddened by his death. theyre turning it into a charade & tbh it’s quite embarassing. he will be greatly missed & will always be the king of pop

    @Christina:
    completely agree with what you said.
    A funeral should be for his loved ones the people that really knew him. To us he was just an icon, a figure, the king of pop. But his family and his friends truly knew who he was, so i think it’s only appropriate that there would be no public viewing.

    ENOUGH of the rumor mill. Maybe the family did say this, but it was never official. Now it is.

    Imagine when Elvis died,what it would have been like with 24 hour news and the net.

    MJ was world reknown entertainer.Hismusic will live forever.

    He had many personal problems likeElvis. Interesting.

    Macho Man Says:

    thanks God that there won’t be any public viewing. he needs PEACE now.
    and I agree with some of you about people who are acting like “omg, Michael you’re king of pop”, etc etc and if he needed help no one wasn’t with him…all these “friends” who are mourning now or even his family. His father is a monster, that’s all I can say.
    Oh and all these “Fake” fans who became his fans after the death, only knew/know 1 or 2 songs and yeah, they’re the “BIGGEST FANS”. Plus these people who bashed him all over again, now they’re fans. HYPOCRITICAL

    rest in peace, Mike <3

    Giving the utmost love and respect – RIP

    I really don’t think MJ would have appreciated a public showing!

    For years he has been hiding under masks, covering his face…etc….!

    I say…..just keep it simple and give him the respect he always wanted….despite his unusual ways. He still had a heart..

    Thank God, it was hard enough to look at him when he was alive. Now that he’s gone I sure want to see his dead corpse. You couldn’t pay me enough for that!

    YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FATHER, YOUR ”FRIENDS”, YOUR EX-WIFES… all those people are eating from your name, your fame.. especially your dad..
    ONLY YOUR CHILDREN ARE THE ONES WHO ARE GETTING HURT..!! NOT ANYONE ELSE.. THEIR FATHER IS DEAD AND NO-ONE CARES ABOUT THEM, ONLY ABOUT THE MONEY THEY CARE ABOUT….
    SO TELL ME IF IT’S REALLY TRUE THAT MICHEAL DID MOLEST THOSE CHILDREN?? i dont think so
    THAN WHY WOULD HE DO ALL THOSE NICE THINGS FOR CHILDREN AAAALLL OVER THE WORLD??? because every child molester does that? no.. because he actually cared about them..
    like no-one cared about him, when he was a child
    EVEN IN HOLLAND, WHERE I LIVE, HE CAME TO A CHILDRENS HOSPITAL AND GAVE ALL THE SICK CHILDREN SO MANY GIFTS THEY COULDN’T BELIEVE THEIR EYES.. it’s true he did that every where around the world..
    IT’S TRUE THAT THOSE PARENTS WANTED TO GET RICH, SO THEY USED THEIR CHILD AND HIM, TO GET TO HIS MONEY..
    AND THEY DID, BECAUSE MICHEAL WAS SO HURT BY EVERY THING THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD HAD SAID TO HIM THAT HE JUST WANTED TO HAVE SOME REST.. and now he’s found it… poor thing
    with all the stress and pills, no-one could live a normal life like that
    every one who says he’s crazy must look at themselve… IF YOU WERE IN HIS PLACE FOR 40 YEARS? WOULDN’T YOU GO CRAZY??
    the whole world is talking about your crazy things and habbits.. and most of them are not true..
    HE’S NOT WACKO OR ANYTHING.. HE JUST WANTED TO LIVE HIS LIVE..
    HE MADE MONEY FOR IS FAMILY, HIS FATHER, AND THE ONLY THING HIS FATHER WOULD DO IS CALL HIM NAMES AND LOOK DOWN ON HIM AND HIS BROTHERS…
    he gave his family money, food, shelter… everything they needed and did you know what micheal wanted back from his dad when he made a millions dollars a year? some candy! how sweet is that….
    he was afraid to go into an airplane one day, and you know what his dad said?
    i can’t believe you’re my son, with your dirty spots on your face.. you’re discusting and ugly..
    OFCOURSE WOULD SOMEONE WHO’S JUST A CHILD THINK HE WAS TRUELY AND UGLY PERSON AND WOULD GO TO THE SURGEON A MILLION TIMES, BECAUSE HE HAS THE MONEY TO DO EVERYTHING..
    most of you guys are so hypocrit..
    every bad thing that happens to a person, ya’ll love it

    I HOPE HE’S IN HEAVEN NOW, WITH IS GUARDIAN ANGELS AND ALL THE PEOPLE HE LOST OVER THE YEARS….. i hope he’s happy now where he can rest and look at his children growing up….

    MY HEART IS IN A DIFFERENT PLACE, SINCE THE DAY HE WENT… I JUST ADORE HIM EVEN MORE THAN I DID BACK IN THE DAYS…..

    ***********ALL THE LOVE AND RESPECT TO THE ONE AND ONLY MUSIC MAKING TALENTED LOVING SWEETEST ARTIST ON THE WORLD**********

    Teena Says:

    Even though I would want to pay my last respects, I think it would be against his wishes to have a public viewing. What purpose would that serve? It would only make him into a sideshow for everyone. I think the respectful thing to do is let this wonderful magical manchild rest in peace with his family holding a private service.

    edna Says:

    That is a good decision because people are so crazy blogging about everything that they would probably put pics of MJ in his coffin and make a circus of everything. I am disappointed about MJ, sometimes is best not to know much about people.

    silly putty Says:

    I am sure his creepy father- Joe Jackson wanted a viewing at Neverland just to charge admission and rake in the bucks.

    I hope MJ did not include his father in his will.

    miss m Says:

    no he did not include him, he hates joe

    SUBsub Says:

    Keep it Private! Real fans respect his privacy. We have his legacy and music to hold on to. Let his family do this without the media frenzy! If it were up to the media, MJ would be a traveling circus display like Jesse James. Media tore the man apart while he was alive, allow him his peace once and for all.

    The rep is propbably Ken Sunshine. Ken reps Leo Dicaprio among other A listers. Larry King just mentioned that it was him. Only he could bring some kind of order to this madness.
