"The thing about Michael is the memories. I'm lucky enough to have memories - actually, physically - with him onstage and off. ...He's created so many cultural photos in people's minds with his music that he was and always will be the King of Pop." Justin Timberlake is still in shock at the sudden death of his idol Michael Jackson, who passed away last week (25Jun09). The pop star shared the stage with the Thriller hitmaker at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards, when Timberlake performed with his former band 'N Sync.
