Revenge;4930929This might be a bigger deal than Elvis... certainly more people bought his records.
BBC News 24 are saying he's in hospital, so perhaps the TMZ report is jumping the gun.
EDIT: Though, the LA Times are now reporting that he is dead. Very confusing.[/QUOTE]COuld eb a cheap copy/paste job.
An old err... politician (?) overhere got reported as "dead" not too long ago by some newspaper. That newspaper actually made an error and mixed up identities (they simply saw a notification in the obituary section of somebody with the same name) and other media copied it without properly checking on their own... like calling the guy at the adress were he has lived for many years now... so said person saw himself being declared death all over the news, newspapers etc. :oI guess that's all a matter of opinion or kids wouldn't watch them if they sucked ass. Or somebody would make a "better" cartoon if the kids "didn't know any better".
Homer Gonerson;4930930Weird? Yes. Crazy? Yes. Human? Possibly. Will he be missed? Yes
One more thing to add to the list of things we can shove in our kids faces though. Not shove in kids faces in the Michael Jackson way though... that would just be weird....
1. Pluto was a planet 2. Cartoons didn't suck nuts3. First Black president of the U.S.
He's half black half white, therefor he can't be the "first black president". I doubt he'd come this far if he was truely black (black as night or very brown in coluor with distinct negroid facial features etc.)
But whatever makes the people feel better about themselves I guess. :rolleyes:
[QUOTE=Warforger;4930953]well still, let's be honest, the only reason he's so famous is because he was a top artist during the 80's who had a bit too much fun with little boys. Thats why people remember him, mostly for that last part.
I'd think they would most remember his influence/popularity in the music sector aswell as him being a bit weird and all (the obession to try and be white). The pedo thing could eb considered the "nail in the coffin" of confirming his weirdness though.
Most of the major outlets are crediting the LA Times, but it seems for the most part that most outlets are confirming it, but others like CNN are sticking to "coma".
I mean the guy really went wacko in the 90s with the pedo and such, but he was very influential to pop culture in the 80s.
No, seriously! He died of cardiac arrest. ""We've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50. Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back. A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest. Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive. We're told one of the staff members at Jackson's home called 911. La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead. Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.(TMZ)"..." Ah, well, atleast he made himself immortal as the king of pop with all his hits, smooth criminal, Thriller, beat it, and to think it all started with the jackson 5.
I'll wait until I hear from his family or from his corpse in the new Thriller music video. They just confirmed that he's dead.

I disagree. What artist's songs do you know the most of? Most people I know, myself included, would say Michael Jackson songs. Ones you sing at karaokes and discos - Thriller, Beat It, etc.
That's what he's known for and why he's loved everywhere, not for being notorious.
Associated Press just confirmed he's dead: http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_OBIT_MICHAEL_JACKSON
I'm fucking shocked. Michael Jackson seemed like one of those people who would be around forever.
The world of music will never be the same.
I was wondering why MTV was playing Thriller.

Watching it on the news as I type this. Through all his rights, and all his wrongs, still sad to see him ago. And right before his potential comeback, too. Very sad.
He was THE pop star on the WORLD.

Everyone knows he didn't deserve all of that media pbulicity, he was an icon of the last century. I mean for gods sakes, he invented the moon walk! He was more then a legend, he was a hero! His music was incredible and you can't deny that, hes next to elvis in music hall of fame. I mean i was expecting him to atleast last till around 70.
