I think the media is giving this way too much attention. You had Farah Fawcett and Ed McMahon die today as well, but they aren't getting extended coverage.

I hate to say this, but if Obama was assassinated right now, would they still be covering Jackson's death over that?

How do you know its bed time at Michael Jackson's house?

Spoiler: Show
When the big hand touches the little hand.

He was once a good performer with some classic songs, but the molestation allegations and his transformation from black to white (even "his" children are white) and just weird lifestyle were his downfall. We heard this "news" at work and the second they announced it I heard 3-4 people (including myself) start laughing and then the slew of Jacko jokes started, good stuff.

086goinfast;4930972Its a damn shame when someone passes way before there time. He will be missed by many. R.I.P. Michael[/QUOTE] Doesnt everyone "pass away before their time"? When has someone died and you say "well its his time".

He was young, and I honestly thought suicide at first. But cardiac failure at 50 isnt at all uncommon.

Well it comes down to who the bigger celebrity is. And internationally it is jackson.

Split-screen.

Well I wonder if it will be an open casket funeral, with the rate of pre-death deterioration being so extensive.

I just can't get over how weird he ended up looking.

before or after death?

The only reason I was so interested in his death for a few seconds was because of how sudden it was. As far as I know he wasnt sick or anything at all.

What if he is faking his death and still shows up on his first concert night?

Well, my grandfather lived to be 92 (91.8)... while I'll still say I wished it didn't happen and he was still alive. I can't say it was before his time. His wife(my grandmother) died 8 years earlier. 2 of his children already died (in the 60 age range). One is 70(that is alive) right now. He already had great great grandchildren. Which in the last 2 months since he died he had another great grandchild(my daughter) and another great great grandchild( my nephew's son).
