Richie Misses Jackson 'Every Day'

LIONEL RICHIE is still struggling to come to terms with the death of MICHAEL JACKSON - the veteran singer misses his pal "every single solitary day".
Richie enjoyed a long friendship with the Thriller hitmaker, who was godfather to his daughter Nicole, and he was devastated when he passed away last year (09).
And more than a year after the tragedy, Richie admits he is still grieving the King of Pop.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I think about Michael every single solitary day. If you have ever lost a parent, you'll know that you'll do something and think, 'Oh I'll ring mum and tell her.' Then you remember you can't ring mum. It's the same with Michael. I think of something I want to tell him and then I remember. How can you even comprehend that? It's just too much. He was a big part of my life..."

Madonna said it all at that awards show shortly after Michael passed. She said "i abandoned him. We abandoned him!" I personally can't even fathom what it must of felt lìke to have the whole world turn against you!If indeed he got involed in too many rx drugs, how can you blame him?

You're right Milenak about some of his so called friends. At least Madonna was honest saying that we did abandon him. I don't know though, I think that Michael probably did let many people in & he did fire Grace. Maybe if Grace was at the house he could have been saved.

i think that NOW and TODAY after Mike died, people are calling themselfs BIG CLOSE FRIENDS of michael, and my question is: THEN WHERE WERE THEY WHEN MIKE WAS LONELY AND SUFFERING? WHY MICHAEL ALWAYS ALWAYSSSSSS COMPLIANED OF BEING LONELY AND OF NOT HAVING FRIENDS? WHY???????????????? i believe that EVERYBODY abandoned mike in life just because he had PROBLEMS. big problems. and nobody wanted a problematic person around. NOBODY WAS THERE PHYSICALLY FOR HIM EVERRRRRRRR. how can they call themselves CLOSE FRIENDS AND "HE WAS A BIG PART OF MY LIFE" yeah, maybe IN YOUR HEAD, but not in REALITY. like that SMOKEY ROBINSON that had the AUDACITY and THE NERVE to say in the MEMORIAL "hes was my little brother and we were really good friends". yeah RITE SMOKE!! sure!! when reporters asked him after that whens the last time he saw and spoke to Mike, he said: "8 YEARS AGO". asshole!!! IS THAT BEING a CLOSE FRIEND????????? i cant stand people like that!! they are ALL FAKE AND FALSE. now because "its cool" to say that u were friends with MJ. but how about WHEN HE WAS ALIVE HAVING PROBLEMS AND STRESS AND SAD? WHO THE HELL WAS THERE WITH HIM?????????????????? same with BROOKE SHIELDS. in the memorial it sounded that they were close friends. and yes, maybe 25 YRS AGO. all the stories she was telling in the memorial are things from 25 YEARS AGO!! and she made them sound they are from like MONTHS before his death. PLEASE!! it REVOLTS ME!!

The media, music industry, and Hollywood were extremely cruel & unfair towards Michael. I believe MOST people who considered themselves "friends" of Michael's were actually JEALOUS of him & WANTED him to take a fall. Now everybody can use his name to be relevant. They didn't want the negativity around Michael to affect THEIR careers or lives so they abandoned him. He was LONELY and completely isolated. NO ONE reached out to him (except for Will.I.Am, Akon, Ne-Yo, and Chris Brown) Record executives discuss the unfair treatment of MJ by the entertainment industry www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzpptd4BBVUwww.youtube.com/watch?v=78nZTqpYvgQ&feature=relatedwww.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu9NPz9xZB0&feature=relatedwww.youtube.com/watch?v=noWE-gTMYXk&feature=relatedwww.youtube.com/watch?v=TeKZYyfpYIk&feature=relatedwww.youtube.com/watch?v=G7GlKZAOcN4&feature=related
