I haven't commented on the death of Michael Jackson, but I got a chance to watch some of his memorial service today, and I was really touched.
It was sad to see such a mix of genius and sadness. I was particularly struck by Brooke Shields' tribute and Jermaine Jackson's rendition of the song "Smile."
Of course, the most heartbreaking moment was when Michael's daughter Paris expressed her love for her father.
He was indeed an strange man, but his music was awesome and a huge part of my life when I was growing up.
I hope he has found the peace and happiness eluded him in his life.
