michael jackson dies at 50 2009

I was shocked to see the yahoo home page where there's this featured article about his death on Thursday before 12:30 p.m. PT, according to TMZ, who first broke the news of Jackson's death at 5:20 p.m. Thursday.

To die at such a young age -50 and to have scandals involving those children and financial calamity.

It was said that at the time of his death, our pop star was rehearsing hard for 50 shows at the London's O2 Arena, with the first set for July 1 in his rented home in Holmby Hills.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the UCLA Medical Center which at this point he was in a deep coma, where a team of doctors, including emergency physicians and cardiologists, attempted to resuscitate him for a period of one hour and they were unsuccessful, according to his brother, Jermaine.

He was pronounced dead at 2:26 pm. An autopsy is set for Friday.

Michael's father, Joe Jackson, confirmed to E! News his son had a heart attack.

Fans remember Michael Jackson at the star they believe belongs to pop star Michael Jackson but that belongs to a radio personality of the same name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Thursday June 25, 2009 in Los Angeles.

"As word of his death spread, MTV switched its programming to play videos from Jackson's heyday. Radio stations began playing marathons of his hits. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital. In New York's Times Square, a low groan went up in the crowd when a screen flashed that Jackson had died, and people began relaying the news to friends by cell phone."

I think I'll do the same too, play Thriller and Beat It over and over again today. =)

TMZ reports that his sister LaToya ran in the hospital sobbing after her brother was pronounced dead.

A citizen from the NY city said that his friend, who was among the crowd outside of the hospital, said that it was like when Kennedy was assasinated. Just imagine how much people are fond of him.

"For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words. He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him." said Quincy Jones, producer for Thriller.

His best friend, Uri Geller said, "I'm devastated. I just don't want to believe it". He believes that the pressure of doing the 50 concerts was putting the pop star under pressure, and worse, he was a perfectionist.

Briney Spears, excited to see his show in London, said that they both were were going to be on tour in Europe at the same time and she was going to fly in to see him. "He has been an inspiration throughout my entire life and I'm devastated he's gone!"

Justin Timberlake, who was so influenced by Jackson that he wore a fedora and glove and showed off Jackson-esque dance moves in his "Cry Me a River" video, also is mourning, "He has been an inspiration to multiple generations and I will always cherish the moments I shared with him on stage and all of the things I learned about music from him and the time we spent together. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones."

Awww...this is sad..maybe it's for the best. There's reasons for every happenings, and God loves him more. May God bless his soul, amen.






Shine on,
