Michael Jackson Dies at the age of 50



Michael Jackson died today of cardiac arrest in a house he was renting outside of Los Angeles. It was reported that he was dead before he made it to the hospital. They tried to revive him for an hour with no luck.

Most people my age grew up listening to his music. I was once a big fan, then after the allegations of molestation, I quickly lost interest and respect. However, he was a very talented singer. While listening to his music on all the radio stations coming home from work today I realized how long he has been around. He was only 8 years older than I am. Life really is too short. Treasure what you have and be thankful on a daily basis. Im sorry that he didnt get the help he needed both physically and mentally. God bless his family and may he rest in peace.

It's such a tradgedy. I am so sadden by the fact that he never got his comeback, and that his incredible musical talents was, and will be shadowed by ugky rumours of vhildmolestation. I hope people, in retrospect, will remember that he was found innocent.

And on the same day as Farah Fawcett. Two icons.. What a loss!
