    Not confirmed by anyone but TMZ, but it does look likely...

    Very sad day.

    RIP, Michael.

    They don't make true entertainers like him anymore. He will be greatly missed.

    Wow, I knew there'd be a thread here about this.

    I'm still in a state of shock. I woke up this evening, flipped on the TV while getting dinner and boom.

    Goddamn.

    Since those allegations he's been going to court for he hasn't been the same afterwards. Its torn apart. Plus he was in crazy financial dept. That was the whole point of him doing a tour this year.

    Difficult to grasp this news. The guy was an Icon, Icons are supposed to live forever right? The first tape (yes tape, no cd's yet) I ever received was on Christmas eve, MJ's Dangerous. I played it and played it untill it drove my parents crazy. Hehe such goods times. I could spend hours watching the smooth criminal clip. No matter what people say, he was a musical genius (comming from a guy who walks around in Metallica T-shirts and has loads of records of underground (all kinds of metall) bands.

    I won't make a statement on his private life. Nobody of us "outsiders" knows what has really happened, or how his life became it was. Only the few insiders know his true story. Everybody has a private life, his just got out of control due to the vultures of the media. I hate Gossip Magazines!!!

    Anyway he'll be missed, he was my first idol. It is a very sad day
    To PHP or to Perl, that is the question!

    Okay, it feels more real now. Yesterday it was like a dream.


    Anyways, I was laughing at the differences in news reporting between CNN, BBC and FOX, I don't know if anyone else noticed.

    CNN spent most of the evening getting other people's opinions.

    BBC was all about "the body"... "Where's the body now?" ... "Okay, they've taken the body out of the chopper" ... "The body is being examined" "Here's an instant replay of the body being removed from the chopper" ... "This just in, the body will be examined tomorrow and BBC will be on it !..."

    And FOX News, being FOX News, spent the evening speculating. "And there you have it folks, Michael Jackson died of a drug overdose. Well, yeah nothing came out yet, but it seems likely doesn't it? And it fits in with my view of the world so that's what happened."

    Before going on to compare him to Anna Nicole Smith, as if there is a comparison!


    What's funny is just last week or so my mom and I were talking about MJ and I'd said, what's interesting is that people around my age and older all, almost unianimously, see him as THE Michael Jackson. Sort of like, Michael Jackson!

    But those younger will only have seen him as he is now, haven't grown up listening to the songs, and for them he's just come wacko on TV. Sort of like, "Michael Jackson ?"


    It's sad that he put himself in that situation, but it was his life to live.

    What's even more sad, I think, is that he didn't get to perform that last tour. Not even one concert. At least get to go out feeling like the King of Pop. But such is life.

    No one can replace Michael Jackson, no one can replace him as the Pop star, no one can replace him as he move or dance, how he uniquely sing, how he move his crowd every time he's performing. May he rest in peace, but surely he be will remembered through his songs.

    R.I.P. Michael Jackson

    I read on one news site that so many people where googling about him to get confirmation that google thought that their system was under attack. I think Michael's death could very well be one of those "Where were you when you heard the news about..." moments.

    He must have been under a fair bit of stress with the rehearsals for the London concerts.
