      I never cried over a star’s death, but there were a couple that broke my heart and made me feel kind of sad. Bernie Mac & Michael Jackson were probably the only two deaths that made me feel terrible.

      When Bernie Mac passed, I remember feeling sadness in my chest like I known him in real life. He was like the Richard Pryor of my generation, very real, funny, down to earth. My mother loved Bernie Mac and she said it bothered her too when he passed.

      Nearly a year later, we lose MJ and that was a shock too. I remember I was on my way to work one day and “Man in the mirror” comes on the radio. I was alright until that song came on. I started feeling a heavy amount of sadness and by the time I pulled up at the job’s parking lot, I turned my ignition off, sat there and thought about MJ. I was so sad, I didn’t even want to work. But I never cried, just felt a heavy amount of sadness. Both stars dead at 50. It’s sad.

    The Beasties were one of my formative bands, they made me realise music was not made to be taken too seriously, and I love them with all my heart. This news has ripped a part of me open, and I’m nearly in tears.
