Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

I´m 27 now and I became a fan when I was just 6 years old - in the beginning of 1988. I´ve just listened to a Michael Jackson song in the radio. I asked: "Who the heck is that phenomenal singer????!!!"
That was the beginning of a big fanship. But I didn´t get a CD for a few years. My first MJ-CD was "Dangerous". Until today this is my favorite album.

Why I´m still a fan?? Because I think that MJ is one of the most talented and amazing popstars in the world. He really means what he sings. This is what I love about him.

I'm 33 (will be 34 in about 2 months) I bcame a fan after the airing of Motown 25 (I think I was actually a fan before then, but that performance sealed the deal). I remain a fan because I stll believe in him, and I love and respect him greatly

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

30 - I have been a fan since I spun BAD on my record player which I stole from my sister! The melodies were infectious - this was shortly followed by a search in my local library for other albums by Michael Jackson where I found Dangerous. I was hooked on "Why You Wanna Trip On Me." The first album I bought on release was HIStory and to date is still my favourite album (DISC 2!).

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

I'm 70. I knew Michael "existed" LOL----but during the 70's/80's, I was raising my family.
In the Dangerous era---I listened to that album via a 13 year old grand--daughter.
I also read Moonwalk around that time---and didn't believe Michael was guilty of any molestation charges, even the first time,
Then in 1996, History Tour came to Brisbane Queensland---and I went to see Michael, at 58 years old-----and he changed my life-----I have learnt so much from Mr Michael Jackson----and here I still am.

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

I'm 30. It really depends on your definition of FAN. I have admired Michael's music for as long as I can remember, but I don't think I really started paying more attention to it till early 90's. My admiration has simply grown over the years, going beyond just his music in recent times and truly appreciating who he is as a person. I would not consider myself a screaming, running, fainting, dying fan. More a person who has a quiet, deep appreciation and respect for who he is and what he does.

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

I'm 31 and I've been a fan since I was in the womb. True story, my mom was 21 when she had me and was at a neighbors card party (1977, back then that's what they did,lol) and they were playing "Show You the Way to Go" by the Jacksons and from what my mom's best friend said, my mom was "trying to dance:dancin: while 9months preggers" and low and behold I wanted to dance too but not in her belly so she went into labor. 8:32pm on Oct. 18th I was born:baby:.. So that is why I tell people that I have been a fan since I was in the womb.. To this day I tell my parents the 2 best bday presents they ever gave me was tickets to the Victory Tour(I went a month before my 7th bday in Philly) and the Bad Tour(the day after my 11th bday in D.C.). So my parents don't even bother to say anything about the fact I am 31 and still have MJ posters,my doll that's still in the box, and other stuff, and how I am "patiently":timer: waiting for him to return to the music scene.

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

I'm 21 and I don't remember ever not being a fan. Even my parents told me that I always liked Michael even when I was really young. I remember being like 4 years old and knowing every word to "Rock With You". I've just always loved him.

SHUT UP!!! :wild::wild: this world is just to damn small.. The first show in Philly got rained out so they did a make up show at the end of September (28th I believe), I know it's sad I remember that..My mom always said that if my memory worked that good during chemistry class as it did remembering MJ's music then I would be a doctor by now..I had 4th row floor seats at the Philly concert, and 2nd row seat at the DC concert..

Re: How old are you and how long have you been a MJ fan?

Im 23
Ive been a fan of his music since I was 8 or so coz mum used to play his and the jacksons music all the time coz she was a fan since the 70's...I was never a 'hardcore' fan back then though...I hardly knew anything about him except for his music and what I had heard about him from the tabloids (which I never believed much anyway)

I didn't become a fan of michael as a person until about 2005 around the time of his trial when the media were doing alot of coverage on him...i decided to do little research on him to find out more about him to see if he was really capable of the things the world was accusing him of...obviously i found out the truth and realised michael was a most humble, caring and generous human being...

around the same time I really got into youtube and through the vast mj family found out more and more about his past and his music and have been a huge fan ever since!!
