    Michael Jackson, 50, Is Dead

    Michael Jackson, 50, Is Dead
    By The New York Times

    June 25, 2009, 5:41 pm

    Joel Ryan/Associated Press

    This post is written by Jon Pareles, Ben Sisario and Brian Stelter in New York and Brooks Barnes in Los Angeles.


    Michael Jackson, the singer, songwriter and dancer who earned the title “King of Pop” in a career that reached unprecedented peaks of sales and attention, died Thursday at 1:07 p.m. Pacific time, a Los Angeles city official confirmed. He was 50.

    The circumstances of Mr. Jackson’s death were not immediately clear. He was unconscious when rushed to UCLA Medical Center on Thursday afternoon by paramedics who performed C.P.R., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

    Mr. Jackson’s 1982 album “Thriller” is the best-selling album of all time, claiming global sales of more than 100 million copies. But Mr. Jackson was a star before and after “Thriller,” from his days as the piping lead singer of the Jackson 5 to his increasingly bitter final albums.

    He was forever a paradox: a precocious child star, a childlike grown-up, a superhumanly skilled performer who always appeared vulnerable, a figure who pursued worldwide fame only to find himself besieged and embittered by media attention.

    In the 1980’s, he was the embodiment of American pop success, with his ubiquitous hits and video clips, his one white glove and his moonwalk, dancing across stages and heard on radio worldwide. But that success could not last forever, and Mr. Jackson struggled in its aftermath.

    I have had 7 different jokes sent to me via text message in the last hour and a half regarding MJ, and they just seem to be getting funnier

    Some world identities die and everyone is relieved. Others are met with greet sadness. I really can't remember anyone before that has had the whole world taking the piss.

    As a huge fan (yes, I admit it) a little devastated however considering he hasn't released anything new in the past 10 years (close enough), its not an overwhelming loss.

    Your man, Action Hardcore who is 12 years old and mourning the passing of the gloved one( obviously your Mum played the Thriller album while you were still invitro) here is a little something to ease the pain.

    With apologies to Neil Young

    Hey hey my my
    Rock and roll can never die
    Theres more to the picture
    That meets the eye
    Hey hey my my

    Out of the blue and into the black
    They give you this but you pay for that
    And once your gone you cant come back
    When your out of the blue and into the black

    The king is gone but hes not forgotten
    This is the story of Michael Jackson
    Its better to burn out than its to rust
    The King is gone but hes not forgotten
