What a sad, sad day for me and a whole lot of other people ....

Michael Jackson has died at the age of only 50. MJ was such a huge part of my growing up. After all he did nearly spend 45 years in the music business. I don't think there is a person alive today who doesn't know who MJ is, either love him or hate him. I was able to go his Bad concert in Cork, Ireland and then his Dangerous concert in Dublin. I LOVED his music, his energy, his imagination, etc For most of my teens and early twenties I was defending him against family and friends who called him a freak, I used to get really wound up .....

I used to have my bedroom wall covered with his posters, I had 4 scrapbooks (the old children's ones) full of his pictures, wrote his song words in there, decorated the edges with the usual teenage doodles. I have headbands, tee-shirts, badges, Cd's, books etc

I heard it last night on a news channel and I am still waiting to hear that it was just a horrible, horrible rumour some mean spirited person put about. I am in deep, deep shock.

I feel for his family and his young family!!!

RIP MJ you will never be forgotten ........
