  • I agree with oxymoron. I can’t begin to be interested. I look forward to missing another pop culture moment. I look forward to not knowing most Trivial Pursuit answers. I need a brain break and missing MJ tributes could qualify as just that.

  • I am definitely not going to see this. It’s over-kill. I’m sick of everyone trying to make a buck off of his way-over-publicized death.

  • Well, I’m just going to be totally wild and crazy here – I will be seeing this film, I’ve been looking forward to it since news of it first came out.
    Whether you care about his death or not, it is, essentially, the death of an icon, someone who was loved all around the world and was a true inspiration to many. Why shouldn’t we celebrate his life?

  • I’d rather sit through a 5 year olds violin recital than have to watch one fucking minute of a bleached out pedophile dancing his final steps just before he moonwalked straight into the gates of hell. I only hope that satan shoved that glitter glove straight up his scrawny ass the minute he arrived.

    • Fucking hilarious! I just wish I hadn’t taken a large sip of water right before I read the glitter glove remark.

  • I just don’t celebrate by watching tv. Nonetheless, I don’t feel the need to celebrate MJ. Plenty of others will take care of that for me. :-)

    Enjoy the show! Not trying to bash on you or who you like or what you enjoy. Just commenting my ‘must see’ list doesn’t include the MJ special.

  • I never knew they were going to collaborate on “Bad”! Sad to see it didn’t happen. I’m so excited about the upcoming concert film coming out, and the film’s album debut. The “This Is It” song is so terrific… I’m so glad they released it early online.
