Celebs Respond To Michael Jackon's Death

Justin Timberlake released a statement via his official website:
I can’t find the words right now to express how deeply saddened I am by Michael’s passing. We have lost a genius and a true ambassador of not only Pop music but of all music. He has been an inspiration to multiple generations and I will always cherish the moments I shared with him on stage and all of the things I learned about music from him and the time we spent together. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.
- Justin
“This is such a tragic loss and a terrible day. The incomparable Michael Jackson has made a bigger impact on music than any other artist in the history of music. He was magic. He was what we all strive to be. He will always be the king of pop!” — Beyonce Knowles

“I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words. Divinity brought our souls together on ‘The Wiz’ and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the ’80s. To this day, the music we created together on Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad is played in every corner of the world and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace, professionalism and dedication. He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.” — Quincy Jones, who produced Michael’s Thriller album

Most of the celebrities updated their thoughts using Twitter.

Taylor Swift: "It just doesn't feel real.. Everyone is walking around backstage saying "Have you heard?".

Ashley Tisdale: "I have to say, the 6 of us from HSM were very lucky to have met such an amazing man. I will remember that moment forever. RIP Michael"

Jessie James: "Why is it our icons die so young?"

Esmee Denters: "Is this really true??? i can not believe that Michael Jackson died...."

John Mayer: "Michael Jackson, like James Brown and Prince, are nearly uncoverable. The tunes were about his innate talent and can't really be replicated."

Alicia Keys: "Today is so sad........"

Pink: "Michael Jackson was one of the best that ever did it. RIP"

The list can go on and on. Michael touched so many people in the world.
