Michael Jackson Dead?


Can anyone tell me if this is true? Only the first picture in this photoset says that. The remaining ones say he was only rushed to the hospital when he stopped breathing. I've seen nothing else that'll confirm it. Apparently, the news just came out about 20 minutes ago.

TMZ, the website that broke the news, is only saying that "it's looking bad."

Update: TMZ just confirmed it. Michael Jackson is dead.

According to Rush Limpballs, who said today that Obama made Sanford cheat on his wife, he is also responsible for the deaths of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Ed McMahon. (RIP, all)

RT from Sinfonian: Fox News: "Michael Jackson (D) Rushed To Hospital" Jesus, that's viciously funny.

He is dead.

My brain simply can not conceive of this notion that M. Jackson has died.

Did he do this just to upstage Farrah Fawcett...

I had been hoping he'd transform himself back into a black man before he died...

comrade, was that back to "black" or "man"? just curious.

I meant both:

Comedian George Wallace made a joke a decade ago about Michael Jackson's plastic surgery.

"If he keeps going, even his own family won't recognize him.

"Ding, Dong.

"Honey! There's a white women outside that says she's our son."

Children, children, please show some respect for the dead.

Actually I am quite moved. The second I saw that headline I was stunned for about 15 seconds. Then I wandered around the house for about 5 minutes in a daze. As I said in my first comment, my brain simply could not wrap around the concept.

I didn't believe it at all, I thought it was one of those "reports of my death are premature" slips where someone sends out the 'just in case' obit they've pre-written by accident. Only after I saw the AP version, in addition to the Raw Story and HuffPo articles did I actually start believing it.

I am sure surprised...

I guess he decided to finally just....Beat it.

What, no jokes about the doctors trying to save his life by transfusing him with white blood cells?

You guys disappoint me...

Actually, I am sad for Farrah Fawcett. This should have been her night for tributes. INstead they tossed her aside... She would probably laugh if she knew. I was much more touched by her death than Michael Jackson's.

Is it fair to say Michael Jackson is HIStory?

Thank you all for the comments and JP for just a NY minute I thought you went soft. The human known as MJ was talented but belonged in jail.
So long Ed and Farrah may their souls find rest.

There is nothing shocking about Michael Jackson's death.

Walking around with a cane, looking like a spaced-out anorexic androgenous, used-up man-child? This guy has been getting worse by six month periods for as far back as I can remember which dates back to the eighties.

Somehow this emaciated, guilt-ridden, soul-destroyed, man-child managed to live until 50. That's what is shocking. Who in the hell manages these kind of victims of fame and who in the hell manages their victims? Guilty fuckers.

I'll bet the farm that his body is filled with pharmaceiticals galore. Gotta love those "personal physicians" that are always omnipresent at this kind of long public suicide. And that's exactly what it is.

Michael Jackson died a long time ago.

Sadly he took a lot of boys down with him.

Every victim of childhood sexual abuse has the potential to create hundreds of new victims even if he/she victimizes but a few themselves. Like a virus, learned behaviour spreads.

Sad, but true.

I'm sorry he's dead and all, but once informed of that fact, how much more news about it does anyone need? It's the only thing on CNN or MSNBC, and ABC canceled its programming for a special with Barbara Walters and some guy with a British accent.

Who cares that much? Do these people not have lives?

It ought to e noted that on Twitter, the #IranElections forum, which has been hovering at around #1 or 2 for a week or so, has slipped to 6th place while there were at last count five different forums devoted to Wacko Jacko in the top ten alone.

So I see your point, Marla, but I think it would've looked a little isolationist of me if I hadn't at least briefly mentioned it considering his enormous stature in the entertainment industry.

JP--I didn't mean you. You had one post about it. You didn't turn your blog into All Jacko All the Time, like some MSM outlets I could name.

I can't wait for this news cycle to be over.

"Every victim of childhood sexual abuse has the potential to create hundreds of new victims"

And not every one does it, not by a long shot - despite what Law & Order-SVU says.

I was molested when I was 12 years old, and I can not even imagine doing the same thing. Blech! It took me a long time to get over the damage done to my sexuality (ie: blow jobs did nothing for me until I was 22). I can clearly remember what I went through, I could never inflict that on another person.

I like my sex to be between consenting adults, thank you very much...
