Michael Jackson graces the cover and pages of Time commemorative issue, which the publication hasn’t done since 9/11’s special issue. The MJ issue includes interviews and thoughts from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner and Nancy Reagan.
The Time commemorative issue hits newsstands on Monday, June 29. I miss you [Michael] but your legacy shall live on. And here are some more remembrances –
Bette Midler: I loved Michael Jackson from the first moment laid eyes on him as a young performer and over all the years of his career. I never wavered for a moment in my belief in his talent and creativity. He was head and shoulders above every performer of his generation. I personally intend to only remember the best of him, his kindness, his charm, his superb musicianship, his magical dancing and his beautiful voice. He was a showman without equal. May he finally rest in peace.
Mariah Carey: I am heart broken. My prayers go out to the Jackson family, and my heart goes out to his children. Let us remember him for his unparalleled contribution to the world of music, his generosity of spirit in his quest to heal the world, and the joy he brought to his millions of devoted fans throughout the world. I feel blessed to have performed with him several times and to call him my friend. No artist will ever take his place. His star will shine forever.
Elizabeth Taylor: My heart…my mind… are broken. 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. I was packing up my clothes to go to London for his opening when I heard the news. I still can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it. It can’t be so. 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. 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.var addthis_pub=”reserveresult”;
