I get it. MJ was (is?) essentially the most iconic figure in music ever… I realize he made Thriller. But honestly, attempting suicide over the dude’s death?! I find it so incredibly strange that somewhere on this planet prior to his death, people were sitting in their houses blasting Off The Wall 24/7 while worshiping a hair doll of Jacko. Do these people realize that he hasn’t made a socially relevant record since 95′s History? Do they forget the dude was a drug addict and happened to get into a shit-ton of law suites involving touching little boy’s pee-pees? I understand the man is well above iconic status, but to some degree M.J. died over a decade ago. Ehh, it’s all the same in the end… here’s what E! had to say.
Up to 12 heartbroken followers of the star have taken their lives – including one Brit â€” said the MJJcommunity website.
The startling claim came as it was revealed a Jackson lookalike in Russia cut his wrists after the star’s death was announced.
Gary Taylor, who runs MJJcommunity.com, said: “I know there has been an increase, I now believe the figure is 12. I believe there may have been one Briton who has taken their life.
“It is a serious situation that these people are going through but Michael Jackson would never want this. He would want them to live.”
Russian fan PÃ¡vel TalalÃ¡yev was found bleeding heavily at his home in Moscow just hours after it was announced that Jackson had died.
But an ambulance crew found him in time on Friday and managed to save his life.
One of the ambulance men said: “He was in a terrible state and kept on saying: ‘It’s all the same to me. I’m going to kill myself. It’s the worst tragedy of my life and I don’t want to live any more. I don’t know why you saved my life, I want to be with him’.”
