Michael Jacksons Birthday party

"Several thousand dancers packed themselves close together on the muddy Prospect Park grass facing a huge stage. Deejays played Jackson's music spanning his whole career - from his childhood with the Jackson Five to his final tracks.

There was a giant white birthday cake that read "Happy Birthday Michael Jackson" in red frosting. Balloons dotted the sky.

The biggest cheers came late in the day when the deejay played one of Jackson's best known hits, "Beat It."

"I've been into Michael Jackson since I was 1 year old," said Tariq Shade, 39, of Crown Heights, who wore a silver sequin glove on one hand. "I've always, always celebrated his birthday."

"I don't even remember life without him," actor Tracy Morgan said at Saturday's party. "Michael Jackson was everything."

"Happy birthday, Michael!" yelled Purcell Nurse, 28, of Crown Heights. "I wasn't able to go to one of his concerts, but I'll always remember this concert."" [NY Daily News]

I'm posting a bunch of pictures from Saturday's event in Prospect Park, so I split it into two posts. Check out Part One HERE. And the rest below...

I love MJ. But according to these to pics, so do a lot of other douchebags and half-wits. So tragic.

"so do a lot of other douchebags and half-wits. " So you included yourself in this statement 1:29? Kudos. Let's be human together.
The internet is fucking weird man.

this is the most black folks i've EVER seen on BV. and who said BV was only about things white people like?

I'm embarrassed for these people.

This guy has not been musically relevant for 20+ years and was never acquitted of child molestation charges. Would there be some freaky parade/birthday for Gary Glitter? No...but the idea is as big a weird, pointless, cash-in as this crap.

Agree with previous poster.

MJ would have been nothing without Phish. My wife knows more about MJ than any of you. Did Crystal Castles play at this?

Thanks for sharing your pictures. All we needed was the music and we would have been there too.

Pretty lame that a guy brought a picture of him with MJ and held it on his shoulder so people could see and take pictures of it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2009 9:30 AM

the best part of the day was when Peter Murphy arrived and dueted on Billie Jean..I almost cried.

Brooklyn vegan readers are racist and "lame" (see, I speak white people).

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2009 10:53 AM

Why does that guy carrying the picture of himself and MJ also have a parrot in a cage? Am I missing the significance there?

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2009 11:26 AM
