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

I am *coughs* 48 *coughs* But please don't tell anyone ok.

I have been a fan since I was about 7........ that just made me cry and I don't know why.

Anyway I have spent most of my adult life bringing up various children, my own by birth and others and am still doing so, my youngest is 7. Surprise, surprise all my children are MJ fans.

I'm 25 and probably always heard and liked MJ's music. The first song I clearly remember being from him was Earth Song, I bought the single when I was 9.

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

I'm 16 and I've been a fan since the beginning of middle school which was in 2007 so since the age of 11 :) thanks to a music teacher showing us a video of Thriller, We Are The World, Beat It and Smooth Criminal

I remember there was a tv special in 2008 with Michael working in the studio and I was there excited for a comeback

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

I am 31 and I have been a fan since I first saw the Thriller video during the 80's but it was during the HIStory era that I became a hardcore fan that when the name Michael Jackson is mentioned people I know always remember me. hahaha...

The first Michael Jackson album I got was Dangerous and it's also the first album I have ever owned. It's my favorite album well that and Bad. Kinda torn between the two.

I am still fan until now. And I think that no one can replace him.

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

I'm 24 and I've been a fan for 10+ years. That is, a devoted fan because I've been listening to his music since I was a child and I loved it, I first fell in love with Moonwalker at around 9 or so and then when I had the consciousness to devote to the music I did. I'm still a fan of his because through the years I've realized he was not only a super talented man unlike any other I've seen, but because he was an exceptional human being and had a wonderful soul and love for what he did and what he stood for, so that's why. He just inspires me to become a better person and to never give up on my beliefs. I just love the man, no one will ever fill his shoes, NO ONE.

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

I'm 25 and have been a fan pretty much my whole life. When I was really little I used to stare at the bad album cover. I was mesmerized by it. My mum put the album on for me and I fell in love. I will always have a soft spot for that album. :)

I've been a fan and advocate since 1969 and I'm close to Michael, in terms of age.

I'm both surprised and pleased to see such a high percentage of under-25s and 25-40s here at MJJC.
Michael's legacy is strong and in good hands for many, many years to come!

I was 31 , the first time that i remember listened Michael was in my 6 , the first time I heard michael was on the TV, my parents and their friends were eating and the TV was on and michael came out on the news, they put a piece of the thriller videoclip and I remember being stuck watching TV. I loved that handsome guy playing zombie ... He was in my head many days and suddenly i heard his songs everywhere. A few days later put the movie the jackson on television and we saw it whole ... I was small but I remember that I felt very bad for michael because the movie ended with a famous but sad and lonely michael.
A few days later a report came out talking about his childhood with pictures of a child and an adult, i was fascinated, his music started playing in my head without stopping. Suddenly dangerous tour in Spain was announced.
his images came out in concert and my eyes followed every step he took when dancing ... they broadcast several videos of michael in hospitals with children and I heard him speak for the first time, I did not understand any English but he seemed kind, polite and shy, I loved her smile, I felt identified because I was also a shy girl and there I fell in love platonically for the first time, in my fantasy as a girl of six or seven years.

since then I listened to each song, I watched each report with great enthusiasm. I always filled their songs with energy and that is still happening today.
I was never a fan of screaming or going crazy, but I followed him for the rest of my life until today, thrilling with each appearance, each new song, each step he took and having a deep respect and admiration for him. I could never go to any of his concerts, this makes me very sad but I was very young and they did not take me and when I was older I did not have money to pay for it, however I watched all their concerts from the television and later from the internet. Over the years I was loving and respecting michel a lot more because of his way of being, for his kindness, I loved him for his spiritual and peaceful thoughts, for his charitable soul, for his depth, I love him for his sweetness and shyness, for his humility , for your desire to have fun and your inner child since I also feel an adult child, I loved him for his kindness and generosity, and grew listening to him, watching him dance, grew supporting and respecting him from a distance, was part of my life, his songs encouraged me in sad days and still do, I also felt a lot of pain when he suffered, and I faced my whole environment when they criticized him and I still do it at 31 years old.
I grew up with the feeling as a part of my childhood and it broke up when he died

to this day I keep listening to his music every day, he brings me energy and I still look spectacular every time I see his videos dancing and acting, he fills me with peace of energy and love with his songs.
I personally was fascinated much more his facet as a person, the humanitarian michael, kind amusing ... I feel a deep respect for him, he was able to cross borders and I personally reached my heart all his energy.
