Michael Jackson Is MTV’s Artist Of The Millennium… NOT

was given the ‘Artist of the Millennium Award’ at Thursday’s MTV Video Music Awards by Britney Spears, a day that also was the King of Pop’s 44th birthday. Jackson said, “Wow. God bless you. I love you, too. Thank you very much. Britney spears, you look wonderful. If — when I was a little boy in Indiana if someone had told me — if someone had told me that one day I would be getting as a musician the Artist of the Millennium Award, I wouldn’t have believed it. This is really amazing. I can’t believe it. Thank you so very much. There’s a couple of people I have to thank who made this possible. First of all, I’d like to thank God who makes all things possible. My mother, Joseph Jackson, Katherine Jackson, Triewdy Green, Howard Kauffman, the genius of John McLean. Diana Ross, Gladys Knight. Quincy Jones I love you. David Blaine your magic is real and I believe in you. I would like to thank — I think James Brown is a genius. All the fans around the world, I love you. God bless you, thank you.”

Update: The Artist Of The Millennium wasn’t the award Michael got… it was just a birthday present, as Jacko misunderstood when Britney said something about being the artist of the millennium.

    MTV set the entire thing up. They told Michael that he would be getting a special award, and then they scripted Brittany’s speech to include the words” Artist of the Millennium”. As you will see when MJ is speaking he has a piece of paper in his hands, obviously notes to remember who he should thank. He would clearly have not taken it with him, if he had not told he was getting an award.
    I think it was a cruel joke to play, and one of the lowest of the low a TV program can actually stoop to. MTV is DISGUSTING. Don’t watch them.
    Please re watch the video and you will see.

    Well, R.I.P. and congratulations you child molesting, race changing, blanket beating, crazy motherfu**er, Lol. No, but for real… 110 million units moved for ‘Thriller’. I think that speaks for itself.

  6. Evan says:

    Silverback what the fu** was funny about what you said?

  7. Michael says:

    It’s not Jacko, it’s JackSON. He hated being called Jacko, that’s not his name, it’s Jackson. And seriously, every celebrity in the world has made mistakes, and when MJ makes one, it’s a huge event and a good opportunity for him to be ridiculed for it. People need to learn how to respect, and it’s sad how it takes him dying for people to realize what a genius he was and apologize for making fun of him. How sad.

    I am deeply touched by Michael Jackson’s love for God his creator!! When receiving his award of Artist of the Century, FIRST AND FOREMOST HE THANKED GOD «WHO MAKES EVERYTHING POSSIBLE» His fame did not make him forget his creator! This a great lesson for all us. And I believe is already with God in eternal happiness.

  9. Christopher says:

    I honestly do not understand why people read this if they are just going to make fun of him. I mean he was human just like everyone else is and he had a pretty sh***y life in the 2000 because of you guys who keep calling him a pedophile get a life and find a post that you can write good things about the people who are in it. R.I.P
