MICHAEL JACKSON for Artist Of The Millennium

During an MTV Video Music Award ceremony on August 29, 2002, which also happened to be Michael's birthday, Brittany Spears introduced Michael as the artist of the millennium, to present him with a birthday cake.  Michael was under the impression that he was receiving an award for Artist of the Millennium from MTV. It is unclear to fans around the world when MTV decided that this award, that was earlier mentioned on their own website ceased to exist. I believe its time for MTV to do what is right and produce such an award for Michael's contribution to the music industry.  An award that should have been given to him in 2000, not only for his inspirational lyrics and amazing video productions, but also for making MTV what it is today.  For those who are not aware of Michael's lifelong humanitarian efforts, below is a list of charities and links to some of those charities he supported.  R.I.P. Till We Meet, Michael.  We love you more!

Would like for Michael Jackson to receive recognition, for his lifelong efforts to the music video industry and for making MTV what it is today. A pioneer in his own right and one of the greatest humanitarian this world has ever known. I believe that if such an award does not exist, one should be created for Michael.  Please help make this happen for him, his family and his fans.  Thank you for your time.
