Michael Jackson passed away 4 years ago today -- you probably forgot ... but MJ's biggest fans definitely did not, leaving massive piles of flowers outside the King of Pop's mausoleum today.

To give you an idea, one MJ fan group -- called "One Rose for Michael Jackson" -- donated more than 10,000 roses to the grave site.

A rep for Forest Lawn cemetery tells TMZ, fans will continue to be allowed to place flowers at MJ's grave throughout the day ... and the flowers will remain on site for the rest of the week.

TMZ broke the story ... Jackson died from a fatal dose of Propofol on June 25th, 2009. His doctor is currently in jail.

I think it's kind of cute that TMZ posted this. They clearly seem to like Michael.  :icon_e_biggrin:

I wonder which one of those roses is mine. I sent one even though he's alive. Lol.

I see this article as TMZ saying "In case you forgot what today was..."

Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

The pic I saw was beautiful and I guess it's a loving tribute...but I can't help but think what a waste of money in reality.  I would think Michael would prefer a campaign to raise money for a childrens camp, shelter or hospital than for flowers that will be wilted and gone pretty quickly.  I guess I'm just the neighborhood practicality scrooge today  :icon_e_confused:.

Love4Michael - you are not alone. I had the same initial reaction. But then I realized that sometimes it's nice to shower the person you love even if they don't ask for it. Those flowers are beautiful - I can't think of any other artist who has such loving and loyal supporters. But then is there any more deserving? Hugs and blessings to you.

Yes, leave it to TMZ to "remind" the world (as if there needs to be a reminder)? Where are the reminders about Farrah Fawcett?

PS Michael - we miss you and still stand behind you. L.O.V.E.

Yep. I'm hearing ya. I think the same way. Nice tribute....but a waste of resources that could be better utilized. JMO though.

Don't worry about the waste of money.  Looks completely shopped to me.  And how weird -and in rather bad taste - is it that they have a MJ 'impersonator' in the center.

Could they not have the roses there for the great show of love, and then have the flowers delivered to hospitals everywhere, in MJ's name. What a thrill for those shut-in and lonely. In fact I'm guessing this is the case.

That would have been a great tribute to MJ, for sure. I wonder if it's possible to suggest that for next year (if MJ's not BACK by then)....

According to their information on their blog they plan on donating the roses but according to the article from TMZ:
"A rep for Forest Lawn cemetery tells TMZ, fans will continue to be allowed to place flowers at MJ's grave throughout the day ... and the flowers will remain on site for the rest of the week"

However, here is what the One Rose For MJ Blog says about the roses:


"Last year, as many of you may recall, #OneRose4MJJ used the roses sent to Michael in a gesture to pay it forward. On June 26th, various buckets of the roses that were sent to Michael were taken to battered women’s shelters, elderly homes, and even to Lullaby Land and Babyland at Forest Lawn. The plan is to do the same this year as well.
 
In addition, #OneRose4MJJ has partnered with the MJJJustice Project and Stop Global Airwave Abuse to further use our gesture of love as a means to pay it forward. For every 1,000 roses purchased, MJJJustice Project and Stop Global Airwave Abuse will donate to our three charities. continuing Michael’s long legacy of humanitarianism!"
