    Michael Jackson it appeared made a speech and released things near his death that he never did before, did he have a feeling that he was going to die?, was someone threatening him?, was he murdered? and is he worth more since his death than when he was alive?

      Wait, Michael had a speech made?  You might mean a will? 

      Lots of people write their own wills, even if they aren't dying, Its not uncommon.

        I don't believe he knew he was going to die, it appears he hired a doctor to make sure he wouldn't die, so he thought, but it appears that was his mistake in his death trying to stay alive, raise his children, help others, build a hospital for young disabled children, he had all these dreams, no he didn't think he was going to die.  What's really sad about the whole thing is 3 children are left fatherless.

        @apoldear, to clarify what I meant was his last speech when he stated "This is It, for real", at first I thought he made this speech because he felt something but now, after watching the reports and hearing it is clear to me that as listed above:

          Ah, that speech.  I thought that was the last time he was going to tour for concerts.  Like he was going to retire from performing or music records.

            Yes, it was his last tour that he was going to do, I have been watching the coverage of the doctor that's on trial and the entire issue is so sad, they tell about how the kids saw him laying on the bed die, his little girl at the time was so young she cried on the floor, yelling Daddy, daddy, it really is sad.  Then on the other hand it seems the doctor was so close to him that he neglected to do his job, his background seems to be good he just made the wrong judgment, it really is a situation where know one really wins or loose even if they find the doctor guilty. All have lost the kids, the doctor, and of course Michael Jackson and his family.

    just because he used to take cocktail of medicines it doesn't mean he knew eventually he will die...!

    Considering his choice of sleep aids; I would think it was safe to assume he had a good idea that death was a strong possibility.

      @Retron, you're absolutely right because when you think of it, as any parent 1. who would want to leave their child with out a parent, since he was the only one his 3 siblings knew. 2. He sought out a doctor to make sure he was safe paying him $150 thousand a month, if he had that kind of money to spare, he could have afford the drugs some other way and treated himself if he was going to take the chance on his life.  3. He was very concerned about his daily intake of food although he had a cocktail of medications to sleep, he wasn't on street drugs all these drugs were prescribed by doctors, therefore if he could have fallen to sleep like most of us does I don't believe he would have had this cocktail of drugs, just my opinion of it all

        @Emily, I understand where you are coming from, but he didn't use street drugs he obtain them through his treating physicians, there are many street drugs he could have afford and possibly would have aid him in sleeping much better. But because he was concerned about sleeping in order that he could take care of his responsibilities he got the prescriptions from treating physicians, I think  he put to much faith in them, thinking they would take care of him and protect him from death, just my personal opinion, but we never know

          There was nothing legal about what Michael Jackson was doing. Simply because he was incredibly rich and could afford a physician to administer his drugs doesn't mean he wasn't on illegal drugs.

          I always felt for him. What a waste. Yes, he was a great musician; but his life tumbled into madness. Looking at pictures of the young man and then the end result of all of that bizarre and unnecessary plastic surgery; he would have been happier and been money ahead if he had only invested in a good shrink. imo.

        @Yasir Hasan, I didn't word it right he didn't make a speech of his death, just the concert that he was going to do for the last time, he said "This is It", I am serious, I guess meaning he would never perform again after that tour which he didn't live to do, such ashame

    @Emile R, Have you read his childhood life story, unless we are in shoes of an individual we don't know how we will, or what we will do, Michael never had a child hood, he had a skin disease he did what he did what he thought was right for himself, but he gave millions to charities which are not publicized it's always easier to trigger the negative in the news because that's what simply sells, positive don't sell as quick or easy as negativity and drama, therefore all the money he put into different charities wasn't exposed, neither was his dream to build the Children hospital for disabled children, which was one of his dreams.  Investment he invested into people lives and charities that needed it not into the stock market where he would get returns Michael was into helping people which is not exposed because it's not enough drama when you talk about putting other people needs at the end of ones pocket, unselfishness doesn't mean much to the world so it's not broadcast.

      I don't know his whole life story, but I do know he had many childhood experiences that should not have happened. I liked the man, on many levels. Respected him on many. But, the plastic surgery goes a little farther than the claimed skin disease; don't you think? The bizarre public behavior can't be attributed to surface problems either. I would never deny his love of people or his many contributions.

      I am so very sorry that such a gifted man did not live a full and happy life. But, I think; had someone within his circle of confidantes been honest with him and attempted to help him understand himself and avert the strange path he seemed bent to embark on; he might still be with us today.

        @Emily R, you are so right, it really is a sad situation, just wish he could have gotten the mental help he needed, because clearly there was know one like you said in the circle of confidantes been honest he would have been here today, you are absolutely right.
