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

I forgot if I've already have written here but oh well - I'm 28 and been a Michael fan since I was 10-11. He is the one thing that has never changed in my life, he is the one thing that I haven't gotten over. You know how you have idols, and like boys and so on, Michael - except God and my family - is the only thing that has been part of my life for this long and he will always be a part too.

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

I was aware of MJ when i was very little and remember the Thriller premiere on MTV. It wasn't until i was around 10 though that i became a big fan....used to go to bed with my walkman and listen to old J5 stuff for hours. Thriller album was the first album i ever bought. Going to see MJ Live on the Bad tour really sealed the deal for me though. After that i was totally obsessed......

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

I'm 25 and I am a fan since I saw a broadcast of the Bucarest Concert in 1992.
So I was just 6 back then. Took me years til I figured out the Moonwalk :)
Better times.

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

I'm over 40 and started listening to his music when Beat it became a hit. I had already listened to several of his songs, but didn't connect the person to the song. Ben, Music and Me, One Day in Your Life are some example of songs, I listened to a lot, without knowing whose was the voice singing it.

Also, What made you become a fan?, and why are you still a fan today?

I like his music basically and continue to enjoy his music.

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

I'm 49 and will turn 50 on Oct 2, opening night for The Immortal tour (yes I'll be there). I became a fan when I saw TII in the theatre. My life completely changed when I saw that film, it was the artistic experience of my life. I am more obsessed with Michael than any teenager! Believe me! It's Michael morning, noon and night. Why didn't I see it sooner???

Very interesting thread, it's fascinating to see these responses.

I am just turned 25 and became a fan around like 1993 or something. An aunt gave me a Best of Michael Jackson tape and that was it! He suddenly became my favourite artist and hero :)

That is amazing. I could not imagine Michael could new fans these days. Its just makes me feel good :)

I am sorry you did not "find him" earlier - but make the most of it because today is all we´ve got!

I've been a fan since I was around 16 years old. I am 33 now. My aunt bought me a copy of the Dangerous album and I was hooked ever since.

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

I'm 30 years old now and I can't remember how long I've been a fan. My parents say I loved the Thriller album since I was 3 and always wanted to hear it. I would ask for Mihal Jason as I couldn't say his name correctly hahaha. He's always been in my life and always will be.

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

I met Michael for the first time when I was 5.
He was coming to Brazil for the Dangerous Tour and I watched a tv commercial with him performing Will You be There and Smooth Criminal. A dream, but unfortunately I couldn't attend one of those concerts because of my youth, money and my family live SOOOO far from the ground he performed, like 9 hours by car.
The first short film I watched was Black Or White, then Smooth Criminal and Billie Jean music video afterwards. I watched his concert in Munich on Christmas 1997, but I can't remember why we didn't record it. Now, this broadcast is something really rare(if it even exists).
I became a real fan when he jumped up to the stage with 'N Sync on VMA 2001. I remember clearly that I almost had a heart attack lol.
That's my fan history with Michael. :D

I'm 20 and I've been a fan for 10 years and counting. I became a fan after seeing Mj's 30th Anniversary Celebration in 2001 when it was broadcast. I was amazed at Michael dancing ability as well as his singing ability.
