R.I.P. Michael Jackson

In tremendously shocking news, multiple credible news reports state that our 50 year old iconic legend Michael Jackson has died.  He suffered a cardiac arrest this afternoon and was rushed to UCLA medical center.  News reports state that the doctors tried to revive him for 45 minutes and his mother Katherine Jackson and his sister LaToya ran into the hospital crying.  His brothers were there but Janet is not in L.A. yet, neither is his father Joe who gave a statement earlier. There are still no details on what caused the cardiac arrest or supposed heart attack.  He arrived to the hospital in a deep coma. Michael was planning for his 50 sold out shows in London.  I'm literally at a loss for personal words right now.  L.A. Times has the latest credible updates. R.I.P. to the King of Pop. My favorite Michael Jackson song of all time:

Performing "Rock With You" for the Bad tour in '87.

Allen: hypoc RIP Michael.

Allen: hypoc RIP Michael. Simply the best...still really can't believe it. I was saving up for the concert... re the molesting charges, he was acquitted. Everyone who was a true fan knows the man has tried to recapture his childhood since he never had one. Do your research - the mother of the oldest boy who accused Michael had a history of welfare and medicaud fraud, and of abusing her children in other ways. He admitted to sleeping in the same bed together, like a sleepover, which hell, even Macauluy Culkin admitted that. Not the best idea but that is a long way from actually hurting a child. True genius always comes with idiosyncracies... hello, that is why they are genius, they are so far removed from the norm they appear crazy as hell to the regular folks. On the other hand - I bet you are a big R. Kelly fan, aren't you?

Allen: eat a dick…he was a child molester and i’m not sorry he died, would you have been sorry Hitler died. Just because he made good music doesn’t mean he was good person. You idolizing people for the wrong damn reason. Utter foolishness.Are you seriously comparing these 2 individuals? LOL Please don't bother to answer that sarcastic question. I'm pretty sure Hitler didn't raise millions selflessly for charity for one. Wow. Just give it a rest and vent elsewhere-like in therapy. If someone hurt you, I'm sorry, but you're a little too bitter-may God bless you. AND RIP MICHAEL.

Mz_MelloYello: Is glad you’ve finally found peace. Rejoice in a place with music notes for clouds, where moon walking is mandatory and shiny gloves are a must. Go sing among the stars where none sparkles as bright as you do. RIP Michael. 1luv Nicely put. I'm loving that imagery. :)

Wow, I was just listening to

Wow, I was just listening to all his music on the internet, and dare I say, I forgot how many of his songs I loved throughout the years that I just hadn't listened to in a long time. As an adult the lyrics of so many of them take on a whole new meaning. Now that man had REAL undeniable talent. He was an ICON and truly earned that title. The WORLD labeled him as so-or universally concerred with whomever labeled him as such first! I'm so tired of everyone labeling themselves as ICONS nowadays. If you have to tell us that you think you are..well.. that's just some egotistical commercial BS.Back in the days, there were no clothing lines, no internet, nothing . It was based on blood, sweat, tears and plain old talent on the radio and performing on tv. He banked on his own genius period. No one will ever come close Michael. I can't wait for all of his unrealeased music to come out. ITS NOT OVER YET!! Long live the King of pop. I miss you!! We ALL miss you. May God bless you. I hope you have finally found the peace you sought after all these years. :(

Michael Jackson was one of

Michael Jackson was one of the greatest human beings to ever walk this earth...sooo loved by many of us and sooo misunderstood by others. But at this time let's remember he was someone's father, son, brother, and friend, and an inspiration...let's all be respectful...death is never easy esp. when it's sudden...His legacy is undeniable regardless of how you feel about him...Peace, Love, and Blessings!

Im still in shock!! I think it hit me when 106 & park played "Man in the Mirror"... I couldnt help myself, as the tears poured! I began to smile again though. Just thinking how everyone across the globe has a M.J memory. Mine would be when I was like 4 or 5 yrs old. My grandma was home teaching me Jesus Loves Me. Bc I use to burst out in church singing Beat It!! LOL. She had to beat it out of me. (GOOD TIMES) I will forever be grateful for the music he has left each and everyone of us and all the memories!! ***RIP***

There are no words to

There are no words to describe what an influential man he was. Michael Jackson will never die. There will be no one greater than him as an artist. We were all blessed to live in the same era as him. Greatness never dies.

I send my deepest condolences

I send my deepest condolences to the entire Jackson family , fans and friends. I grew up for years listening to Michael and his sisters and brothers. He is truly a legend and a fallen star. He will be sadly missed and never forgotten. To all the haters who have something bad to say at a time like this FCK OFF! Who knows when it will be your family on the front pew in a church.

WTF is wrong with some

WTF is wrong with some people?!?!? We are mourning the death of this man and all certain people can come up with is some stupid ass has-been news about Chris Brown. Regardless of what people may think about Michael Jackson, the man was a musical genius. Keep it 100%, he's the reason why artists like Chris Brown are even relevant today. However, there will never be another Michael. Now is not the time for all the jokes and the bashing of this man. We should be celebrating the great music he brought to all of his fans, and rejoicing that his soul is in a better place. My prayers are with Jackson's family, friends and fans. R.I.P Michael... You will definitely be missed.

I am only in my early 20s but Michael you served as a pioneer to every genere of music! One of the most respected men/artists in the entertainment industry! Im still shocked that you passed! I can remember listening to Off the Wall and Thriller and everything you did after that! I still dont want to believe it because it Michael Jackson! I think many of us would love to believe he is immortal just because of the greatness he his and will always be! I was just talking about him yesterday morning!! About how I loved Off the Wall!!! You will live on through the livelihood of your family and your incredible music!!! Rest in peac sweet king! My aunt mourns for you hard!!! I never had the chance to meet Michael but several of my aunts and my mother, met him and his family a couple times when they were younger! My aunt tried to hop your fence and your security called the cops lol.... she still laughs about that! Love you Mike!!

I had to get myself together

I had to get myself together before I posted. I'm only 21 years old, but I remember my mom playing Thriller..and from that moment on, I loved him. When I was 5 I wanted to marry him. His music helped me cope when my grandma died, and I always play Human Nature whenever I feel things aren't going my way. Like most people, I believed he was gonna be around forever. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that he's gone. But I know he's in a better place now, and we can finally say that he's no longer alone. It kills me that these media outlets are bringing up the negative at this time, even calling him weird. That doesn't matter at this point, because he was a legend, an icon, and I will never forget Michael. He will truly be missed.

It's sad how you never really

It's sad how you never really appreciate someone until they are gone. With everything that had happened with him over the last 15 years, there is still no one who can touch him as far as talent goes. Everyone else is an imitator and they owe him a huge debt. I hope that he gets the respect that he truly deserves even though it is in death. When he was alive, especially in the last decade, he was reduced to a punchline. He should be remembered for the good and not the rumors and scandal.

I'm still in shock. Michael

I'm still in shock. Michael Jackson dead?! This is so unreal. It's like a bad dream or something. He was such an inspiration and influence to so many artists. From his music (New Edition was my generation's Jackson 5) to his dance moves (where do you think Usher, Chris Brown, Omarion, and Marques Houston got their moves from) to his videos (R. Kelly got his mini-movie idea from MJ). He was the first person to do star-studded videos. Remember "Liberian Girl", "We Are The World", and the classic "Remember The Time"? He is truly an icon...RIP to the KING OF POP...

Im simply speechless. I feel

Im simply speechless. I feel like he was my brother or close cousin, like I talked to him everyday or something. There will never be another man to live up to the legacy that MJ has left us. He is the greatest entertainer of my time, no questions.. I still can't believe he is gone, Im too watchin MTV Jams and all his videos and it still hasn't sunk in. His music legacy is simply phenominal. He will be greatly missed. Even worse, is that we just lost 3 fabulous entertainers in a matter of what, 3 days. Ed McMahon, Farrah, and MJ. Farrah and MJ w/in HOURS of each other.. SAD, SAD, DAY. Condolences go out to all 3 of their families. The entertainment world has had a tremendous loss.

Eventhough I am only in my

Eventhough I am only in my teens, I trully feel the impact of Micheal Jackson's death. My moom raised me on old school music, and I remember listening 2 him at a very young age. I think is talent was 1 of a kind. I believe he was very misunderstood, but i know what that feels like. His music outshines all the controversy. I love him 4 all did not only as a musician but as a humanitarian. LONG LIFE THE KING OF POP!

I am truly saddened by this

I am truly saddened by this horrible news. I will miss MJ not only for his musical genius but because he was such a tremendous part of my childhood. I grew up in the 80's listening to his music. At the tender age of 5 I was fascinated by him. I cried when it finally hit me while watching a tribute to him on TV. His music from the Thriller album brings back so many great memories of my childhood with my mother. At that time my mother was alive and she loved Michael as well. Anyways, his music and legacy will live on FOREVER! I love you Michael Jackson, May your soul rest in peace.

I am so sad that MJ had passed. I was hoping that he hadn't, my TV was glued to CNN as they wouldn't confirm it, and i was praying that they didn't. I'm so disturbed by TMZ, because he was pronounced dead at 5:26 EST yet TMZ reported him dead at 5:20, thats 6 WHOLE mins before he was pronounced dead, why couldn't they wait and who was there telling TMZ that he died before being pronounced dead, they have no respect for human life at times. Words can't express how i feel right now, I'm a child of the early 80s and I still sing off of his his. RIP Micheal

It saddens me to know that Michael Jackson has passed! He is a legend in time and will be greatly missed. I pray for his children and family for strength and that God has mercy upon them! He will be missed dearly for he made and impact on lives of many people. Its just sad how the media is so concerned about what he did wrong rather than the accomplishments that he made! Let him rest in peace and let his fans honor him! His music will still live on! A Legend in Time----Michael Jackson!!!! ;)

wow. the comment made by

wow. the comment made by allen was hateful and the devil's talk. how can someone have so much hate towards their fellow human being? If I can only hear what Jesus had to say to that hateful language. This is the very reason mankind is surely doomed to fail because we no longer love and respect each other the way the Lord wants us to. Stop the hate and remember that once you've said something it cannot be taken back and that you can be taken anytime now just as Michael has. Leave the judgement to God and Allen, you will surely be judged for your comments made today.
