The King of Pop died today of cardiac arrest in a Los Angeles Hospital. According to his brother Randy Jackson, he was admitted to the hospital on Thursday after collapsing in his West Los Angeles Home. Michael Jackson had a long and illustrious career spanning over four decades. We will update you with further news as it comes.
Now a few words from Venkman:
There has been a lot of confusion over the last hour on whether or not Michael Jackson is dead or not. I wanted to wait for a confirmation before I posted anything, but that confirmation has now hit the web via The LA Times that Michael Jackson has in fact died.
Pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead by doctors this afternoon after arriving at a hospital in a deep coma, city and law enforcement sources told The Times.
He leaves behind three young children.
This has been an incredibly sad last couple of days with both Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett passing away as well.
I am a product of the 80's I used to listen to Michael Jackson all the time growing up. I loved the guys music and how can you forget his classic films such as Disney's 'Captain EO' and 'Moonwalker'. The guy truly was an icon of the 80's generation. It is really sad to see his life end like this in a downward spiral.
This is shocking news and I admit that I am sad. And out of all the days in the year, it had to happen on my birthday.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.
