Default Michael Jackson dead!?

A sad ending to a mostly sad life.

Pop Star Reportedly Suffered Cardiac Arrest, Was Rushed To UCLA Medical Center

King of Pop Michael Jackson died Thursday at a Los Angeles hospital where he was rushed around 1 p.m. PT by paramedics, according to celebrity Web site TMZ.

Jackson had reportedly suffered cardiac arrest.

Heh, not breathing, who knows, could be anything.


The worst part, supposedly he was working on a new dance move to one up the moonwalk, and the guy helping was sworn to secrecy.

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT WAS

For a minute, I was worried that you meant Michael Jackson the famous brewmaster. Michael Jackson the pop star died in late 1983. Old news.

Well said sir! Of course, I think you'll find it was 1989.

If he hadnt turned into a freak, Im sure he would still be super popular. His early stuff is awesome.

CNN is reporting that the LATimes is saying MJ is dead.

**** you joe, he dropped off the wall in 79, and thriller in 82.


4 number one hits, and 8 Grammies off one album respectively....

It's started to do the rounds online......

The LA Times have confirmed that it was not the sunshine or the city smog and not the moonlight, and their blaming it on the boogie....

More roumors comfern that his last words included "when i die i want to be melted into an action man so i can play with kids for years to come".

Rumors are, the defibullators when used popped off his nose.

Childline commented "Indeed - the children of the world can sleep easy tonight".



Gawd, this is going to go on and on and on.....

I thought (i.e. from wikipedia?) BAD was 87, hence my 89 claim. Around 89 he must have been starting on Dangerous.... Which was a bit of a stretch. I always saw three people. Thriller/bad is one, up-to-and-including off the wall is another, and Dangerous-on-up is a third.

Personally, I like the first two.
