Katherine Jackson Will Never Heal From Michael's Death

KATHERINE JACKSON, the mother of the late pop star MICHAEL JACKSON, admitted that she will never truly heal from her son's death in an interview with OPRAH WINFREY on Monday (November 8th 2010).
In a frank and personal discussion, Katherine and husband JOE JACKSON spoke about Michael's childhood, the child-molestation trial, and the star's eventual death last year, reports MTV News. The 80-year-old, who is now caring for Jackson's children said, "I don't think I will ever be healed. It will get better, but some days it's like it just happened". Oprah, who had been criticised by members of the Jackson family for conducting the interview, asked Joe about the 'beatings' that he reportedly gave to his children. The 82-year-old replied, "I would punish them by whipping them with a strap when they did something wrong, it would've kept them out of trouble".
Michael died of a heart attack in in June 2009, caused by an overdose of the surgical anaesthetic, Propofol. The singer's new single 'Breaking News' was released on Monday 8th November, and a posthumous album entitled 'Michael' will hit shelves on December 14th 2010.

Mrs. Jackson,You are a strong woman. Michael was my true inspration anytime I was nervous, I would think of Michael singing 'Beat It' or 'Smooth Criminal' and would suddenly become fearless. I grew up in the eighties so Michael has been the soundtrack for my entire life. My favorite memory was of course Motown's 25th Anniversary with Michael performing 'Billie Jean' when I was around 11. He was an amazing entertainer who is loved the world over....he accomplished what he set out to do and that was to become the World's Greatest Entertainer....loved the world over. Even my niece , who is only eight was heartbroken about his passing, and wanted to listen to his music all day long. He was an all around beatiful person. Don't you worry about a thing, you will see him again someday. I comforted myself with Dianne Reeves song, 'Better Days'......"Heaven sent angels down and gave Michael his wings. Now, he's flying' and slidin', & glidin' in Better Days....."

blkgirl007, What you have just said is sooo lovely! Thanks for creating that hope and acknowledging mama Katherine's strength and Michaels qualities. I am so proud of you. I love Michael and I am not sure I will heal any sooner. I understand Katherine Jackson 100% and I understand your feeling very well. I grew up in 80s and MJ is my brother of 10 year age difference. I have always admired him during my childhood and wished someday I could be like him. Iknow him in small details like vocals, the way he walk, talk, dance, dress, smile and I can tell when I see a potrait which doesnt feature some true attributes of Michael Jackson. Rest in Peace MJ. In my heart you forever live!

Well worded of how MICHAEL JACKSON demise came about........If only other people who write would take notice of Amazon selected words.............It is well written............. and I will add........MICHAEL died of a heart attack from anaesthetic of propofol given to him by a cardialogist Dr. Conrad Murray...........Katherine will never heal from MICHAEL'S death, that is her son she gave life to...........
