The details are somewhat scarce and sure to be filled in to minute detail in the coming hours, but all that really matters is this sad fact: TMZ and LA Times report that Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest. He was 50. Holy shit. R.I.P.
RIP. Get ready for the “glad he’s dead” posts. Sanctimonious hypocrisy: it’s so hot right now.
Well I wouldn’t go as far to say I’m glad he’s dead, but to be honest, as shocking as this is, it seems strangely fitting that this is how he went out
Can you really imagine a 70 year old Michael Jackson?
You’re blowing my mind, Frank.
Jakco, We will miss you?
Well fuckin’ shit. How about that? RIP
Thriller will always be a classic…
this is really sad. like I said, his music was a huge part of my childhood. I’ve learned the thriller dance on three separate occasions. RIP Michael. :-( oh boy today is crazy.
Good riddance you overrated multi millionaire.
You’re a fucking monster.
I have no sympathy for child molesters who managed to avoid jail time because of their money and fame.
What a way to cover your expenditures.
No, I’m the fucking monster
Come here little boy. Want some Jesus Juice?
and on the eighth post, there was a douche….
I’m guessing you’ve released a better album than Thriller?
being a child molester makes him looks so overrated? don’ make sense to me
Its nice to know that envious talentless hacks can make comments on musical forces like michael jackson. Just remember that what comes around goes around
maybe the beatles will finally get their publishing rights back
You mean the Beatle?
I lol’d. But yeah, I was thinking the same thing. :| He had no purpose in buying the publishing rights to those songs.
Keith Olbermann said that MJ is giving McCartney 50% of the rights to the Beatles catalog with the other half going to Sony.
What were you doing when Michael Jackson died?
Dear A Fan,
I was watching the movie Jumper and twittering about it. Duh.
I knew someone would bring that up. I like Shaq’s coping tactic tho.
3:05: “is it true about michael”
3:06: “This is the cavs new hot cheerleader,wow smokin. @THE_REAL_SHAQ http://twitpic.com/67l1u – new Cavaliers’ Girl! Ain’t she peerrty?
i think he left them to macaulay culkin.
and the dandy warhols will cover blackbird?
Everyone is reporting this like it’s a big surprise, because they think that’s how they can be respectful. Well I’m not surprised. He’s looked like 90 pounds for years…ah, correction – the news just said 5’10”, 125lbs. They keep saying ‘frail’.
He was probably addicted to painkillers after all those surgeries. Sounds eerily similar to all the pro-wrestlers who die in their 30’s and 40’s of exactly the same thing.
He was a great pop artist. WAS. He hasn’t been relevant for over 15 years. Let’s all go play Off The Wall and Thriller and Bad, and remember the time, pun intended.
nice job spreading inaccurate information
so typical of the idiocy in our society
Nice job being an idiot. So typical of the idiots in our society.
A sad end to what must have been a very very strange life. “Ben” is one of my favorite songs of all time. Definitely underplayed. RIP.
that’s the one about the rat, right?
On a scale of 1 to 10–I’m 0 sad.
LA Times says he’s in a coma. TMZ is the only one saying he’s dead.
yeah. not dead. hold your horses stereogum. lay off the tmz.
Washington Post is posting it too, using TMZ as a source.
la times confirms he’s dead. he’s dead.
TMZ is not a hard news source. Come on.
yeah, but they’re barely ever wrong about this sort of stuff. the mainstream media can’t report until they get confirmation from the hospital – federal privacy laws.
i dont wanna believe it either man…………
………….were gonna be just fine youll see
