Michael Jackson passed away today. He was 50. He was a tremendous talent, which goes without saying, and his accomplishments were immense. He inspired a generation of entertainers. Heíll be missed. For more of my thoughts, please see my personal blog.

Various members of the Bad Boy family weighed in on the events of today on Twitter. Here is what they had to say:


Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat. He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him!

Wow,Lets have a moment of silence for my favorite entertainer of all times The Great "Micheal Jackson" , Damn that really hurts!!!

Donnie Klang:

He was so misunderstood. He never had a childhood. He was trained to do one thing and he did it better than anyone else in history.

He paved the way for millions of artists. Worldwide. Rest in peace mj. I'm proud to have been apart of his era.
