    Michael Jackson never wanted a long life but through his music he'll live forever

    The King of Pop wanted immortality without the ugliness of old age

    BY MKE SMALLCOMBE
    20:15, 25 JUN 2019UPDATED20:28, 25 JUN 2019

    Michael Jackson often spoke about a fear of growing old.

    “I don't want a long (life)... I don't,” he once admitted. “I don't want to grow old, I think growing old is the ugliest thing.”


    We never got to see Marilyn Monroe grow old and ugly, he argued, while James Dean will always remain a mystery.

    And if the Beatles were still together, nobody would care because they’d be “funky and old”.


    It broke Jackson’s heart when his hero, singer/dancer Fred Astaire, once confessed late in life that if he attempted a single spin, he'd fall flat on his face.

    In the weeks before his death, Jackson was preparing for a mega comeback tour which was due to kick off with a whopping 50 dates at London’s O2 arena.

    Michael Jackson and why a jury would struggle to convict him of latest allegations

    While he adored his fans, the truth is Jackson didn’t want to be there. He hated touring, and the sleeplessness that it induced. His inability to get some rest in the hours after a rigorous rehearsal was what ultimately killed him ten years ago to the day, on the morning of June 25, 2009.


    We’ll never know if Jackson, crippled by insomnia and an aching body, would ever have forgotten the lyrics to ‘Billie Jean’ in front of 20,000 screaming fans, or slipped on his backside while performing one of those iconic moves in his battered penny loafers.

    In the final decade of his life, Jackson only appeared on stage a handful of times and released a single album, Invincible, which was undeniably average by his standards.

    But while his very best days were in the past, he died with his legacy intact. He never suffered the age-induced decline he so deeply feared, and people never had the chance to get bored.

    In truth it was always difficult to imagine him living into his 70s or 80s.

    But even in death, people continue to talk about Michael Jackson. The headlines this year have been negative, but we’ll continue to debate, and we’ll continue to listen to the music. It seems little can change that.

    Of course, Jackson had no desire to die at the age of 50. He dearly loved bringing up his three young children as a single father, and still harboured dreams of finally cracking the movie industry.

    But he also once spoke of a desire to vanish from Planet Earth.


    “To disappear is very important,” he said. “We are people of change. We need change in our lives. That's why we have winter, spring, summer, fall.”


    And disappear he did. But to escape death, he bound his soul to his work.

    Through the music, Michael Jackson ensured he’ll live forever.


    "If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with" - Michael Jackson

    As much as his fans hate to admit it, MJ appeared to not wanting to live long.

    There are many signs for that, among others:

    If he wanted to live long, he would not have ignored all those advices from his inner circle (family, friends, associates) about getting a proper hospital treatment from proper doctors.

    Instead, he continued his self-destructive way of living during his final years.

    Also, certain of his lyrics which he recorded in the early 2000s (such as, from ‘Heaven Can Wait’, ‘Speechless’, ‘A Place With No Name’) showed his dark, pessimistic approach to his own life.

    Additionally, he said in the Bashir’s documentary (in 2003) that he would like to live forever.

    Reading between the lines, artists who die prematurely are typically the ones who live forever through their art.

    Also, MJ feared a lot the ugliness of old age.

    For him, the negative physical effects of growing old did not fit to the childlike image that he was projecting throughout his life, but also they did not fit at all to the Peter Pan forever young image that he was so obsessed with.

    It appears that, in the 2000s, MJ was gradually giving up life.

    Sorry I don't agree with you!
    Michael didn't want to die so early!
    He want to be with his children he loved more then anything and seeing them grow up!
    He didn't like to get old and not be able to doing the things as he liked them to do!
    But this a compleatly normal thing that everyone share!
    And to critizize MJs decission from the distance is always easy when you never walked in his shoes and know the full picture of everthing what was really going on in MJs life!
    In the end it was the fault of Conrad M. and AEG that we lost him not his!
    We will never know if he was murdered and when in that night MJ stoped to say YES to the things which were given to him and if he maybe said NO to something!
    ( He had no possibilty to call for help cause there were no telphone, personal handy or internet computer in the room and did already fall asleep when Conrad M. left him without knowing what was going on).
    For me its a wonder that he reached 50 by everthing he went trough in his life!
    He died with a broken heart!

    Please stop to generalize MJs fans, cause you are far away to know them all!

    I believe Michael was murder. but when you look at his last pictures etc. he looks so sick. when you look at his early stuff before this is it he look so happy and healthy. so it does make you think. i totally believe Michael was murder. he was also on meds for pain. Michael had trouble sleeping. something was going on. we probably will never know what happen but Michael have to been murder. there's no way he looked good early before this is it to the end of this is it and look sick.

    Michael didn't have an childhood so it kind of make sense way he didn't wanna grow old. he lived his whole life as an child doing adult stuff. never got a chance to be an child. also he already suffer with being bullied by his face as child. so aging would make it difficult for him. i heard that Michael actually was dating someone before he passed. i don't know if that's true.

    I'm torn between thinking that he did not want age and hoped he was not here for that but then I think about him saying he wanted to live forever, it hurts more to think that he went before he wanted to cause that makes the pain more harder to deal with, Im trying to think that he is in a happier place where he has no more pain but I'm still struggling, can anyone tell me some positive thoughts that I can hold on to to make his death not so difficult, people say that time is a great healer but it's been 10 years and it still hurts 😢

    I think the reason why it is still difficult to to deal with his death is that Michael never was treated and honared like he would have deserved it in his life and after his death for what he was and did in his life and that he had suffered so much for doing nothing wrong but giving this world everthing he could til his last breath!
    (After LN, there is nerly no hope anymore, that this will ever changed.)
    He is loved like no other, touched so many hearts and has such a deep impact on people when ever they listen to him and watching him!

    Also the way he had to leave this world was really tragic.

    Yes I will agree with u, the way he died was so very sad, I just hope he didn't feel any pain and knew nothing of what was happening to him, I have stopped reading any news articles about MJ if its negative, there was another one in the news about the oxygen chamber they claimed he slept in years ago, don't know what is was about cause I didn't click on it, more BS no doubt, before I found this site I didn't know so many people still kept his memory alive and its a great comfort to me that we all still feel the same way, even after so many years, Michael will always be king 👑 and always in my thoughts MJ 💖

    You seem to be unaware of many serious, key incidents in which MJ came very close to death because of his intentional use of drugs (during the 2000s).

    All of these well-documented incidents speak for themselves & clearly show that he did not want to have a long life.

    For instance, the incident where he was found unconscious right before his two MSG shows in September (2001).

    Or, the one in Orlando (Florida) where he was found again unconscious in the hallway of his hotel suite at the Walt Disney World Hotel in early 2000s.

    Or, when he was found unconscious after taking excessive amounts of drugs in 2003 (December).

    Or, Uri Geller’s revelations that on many occasions in the 2000s (including the ones during their visits to England back then) he could not wake him up because of his use of drugs.

    There are, of course, many others as well (in the 2000s).

    The incident that took place on June 25th (2009) appeared to be just another one on this series of incidents, with the difference that it was the fatal one.

    Michael didn't not kill himself. he didn't wanna age but he didn't wanna die. only time he said about killing myself was if no kids never exist on this earth. other then that Michael never want it to harm himself. with the meds i agree on. i totally also believe Michael meds was bad for him. he should of got his meds checked if they were okay. the pain meds Michael were taking can be very addicting.i believe Michael were still murder but his meds should of been checked right.

    You can't never get over anyone death. this isn't just for Michael sake. this goes for anyone you are close too. you never get over death. you just learn to get better at living with it. but i get what you are saying. if Michael death was due to natural cause. then it would of been another story. but it wasn't so i get what you mean.

    Michael was 50 years old when he passed. you can kind of say almost 51 because his birthday was in one (two) month(s) away. he was pretty much still young and healthy but he was middle age. a gorgeous middle age man of course.

    Michael said he didn't wanna age. should we be happy he die at 50? well, for Michael opinion i think yes. i mean he didn't grow old i guess he got his wish. BUT it would of been better if he when out natural cause only. not the way he did. i mean, it would of been nice Michael in his 60's 70's looking back at his life etc. before he passed he wanted take a break from music and do movies. so.... i guess for Michael opinion i guess he got what he want it. which really sad how he went though.
