Just 24 hours after Michael Jackson's sudden death on June 25, 19-year-old rapper Lil' Mama expressed her sadness to Rap-Up TV while on the red carpet at Rap-Up's 4th Anniversary & Summer Issue Release Party in West Hollywood.

The 'Lip Gloss' rapper, who lost her mom to cancer in 2007, showed her emotional and religious side when she compared the King of Pop's passing to the death of Jesus Christ.

"Jesus Christ touched so many people. The story that they gave of this man. ... He healed people,"the 'Lip Gloss' rapper told Rap-Up TV. "Michael Jackson did the same thing, not only with his music, but with his performance and his personality."
