Michael Jackson: Elizabeth Taylor honors her good friend

Screen icon Elizabeth Taylor is speaking out about the death of her longtime friend Michael Jackson. "My heart…my mind… are broken," she said in a statement. "I loved Michael with all my soul and I can't imagine life without him. We had so much in common and we had such loving fun together."

Taylor revealed that she had been packing her bags for London — the location of Jackson's much anticipated comeback concerts — when she heard the tragic news. "I still can't believe it. I don't want to believe it. It can't be so," she said. "He will live in my heart forever but it’s not enough. My life feels so empty. I don't think anyone knew how much we loved each other. The purest most giving love I've ever known."

The obviously distraught star continued: "Oh God! I'm going to miss him. I can’t yet imagine life with out him. But I guess with God’s help… I'll learn. I keep looking at the photo he gave me of himself, which says, 'To my true love Elizabeth, I love you forever.' And, I will love HIM forever."

    It really seems those two were able to form a wonderful and loving relationship. We should all be so lucky to find that in our own lives.

    There is much controversy over Michael Jackson’s lifestyle. We all can speculate forever, but the courts did not charge him with any crimes, so we should just let it all be. We do not really know what Michael went through growing up and the pain he might have endured and how it may have caused to shape him into acting and behaving the way it did. We should remember Michael for what we do know about him and that he was a BRILLIANT MASTER MUSICIAN/ENTERTAINER! This was his gift to us and this is what and how we should remember him. He shared his magic with all of us and in the end, he gave his life to us as a result of it. I thank Michael and appreciate all that he gave us in life for all he ever wanted was to be loved, and I will love him for that. My prayers to his family, friends and fans.

    Melody, the courts DID charge him with a crime. He had a jury trial, remember? Granted, he was acquitted, but he did stand trial.

    Michael truly loved Elizabeth. I remember, that he proposed to her. I think, the only reason why she didn’t marry him was, because of her age. If she was younger, I think they would have married and would have lived happy ever after. I think, that’s also why he didn’t have many relationships. He wasn’t gay. His heart belonged to Elizabeth. It’s really sad. Michael didn’t judge a person by the looks and age. He judged by their heart. When Elizabeth dies one day, I hope she will be put to rest next to him because they belong together.

    Michael truly loved Elizabeth. I remember that he proposed to her. I think, the only reason she refused was, because of her age. If she was younger, I’m sure they would have got married and would have been together happy ever after. I think that’s also the reason, why he didn’t have many relationships. He wasn’t gay and didn’t molest little boys. If people would do their research, they would realize it as well but there are always haters out there, who want him to be the bad and mad wacko Jacko and because they don’t have good hearts, they can’t imagine that anyone else could have one. Michaels heart was as pure as that of a child. It’s really sad. Michael did not judge a person by the looks or age. He judged by their hearts. When Elizabeth dies, I hope she will be put to rest next to him because they belong together.

    Doesn’t matter..Michael is at peace. I watched the Jackson TV again last night and just cry for the little boy who loved and experienced life itself with eagerness….until he was told no candy or candy store. Michael suffered more than Elvis and he was fragile in a society that still was going through racism. All the kids deserve a medal…reach out and use Michael, as an inspiration. Liz, you suffered as you lost your childhood and then condemnation from your affairs to weight. The whole abuse cycle, from family, fans and managers..can absolutely drive a person to despair. Much Love..T

    How sad it is that this fragile person who entertained the masses has left us. For those of us who were alive in his heyday, we can only be thankful to have witnessed and enjoyed such a musical genius who entertained us to the maximum of perfection. His downfall was hard to watch. We will never know if those allegations were true or if in fact, he was taken advantage of and decimation of his character was intentional and cruel. He had deep troubles, but he was also loved in his lifetime and that makes his death a little easier to bear. God Bless MJ, the King of Pop.

    I know Michael must have loved Elizabeth since they had a lot in common regarding their childhood. I only wish that Elizabeth would comment now on the Jackson Family and the news reports regarding how they are fighting among themselves right now. Michael hasn’t even been buried yet the family lost a son, a brother and uncle. Please don’t let them air their Dirty Laundry at this time. Michael would not have wanted this. May He Rest In Peace.
