I’m not attempting to break news, I mean, if you don’t know about this you live under the proverbial internet rock. I’m just putting this up for archival purposes.
RIP seems like a controversial statement because if it wasn’t for his gigantic celebrity, would we be saying the same thing? A walking punchline for the last 15 years of his life, 35 years of incredible stardom, fame, success, and creative genius, the iconic figure will be remembered for generations to come, I guess, that is a good enough statement.
Legendary pop singer Michael Jackson was taken to the hospital, where died today, after suffering a heart attack in Los Angeles, California today (June 25).
Paramedics administered CPR on the 50-year-singer, as he was rushed to a local Los Angeles hospital via an ambulance.
Calls from Jackson’s house were placed to 911 around 12:20 PM PT from his Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.
In December of 2008, Jackson’s brother Jermaine made startling claims that the King of Pop was suffering from a rare lung disease and other potentially fatal illnesses, although neither health issues were confirmed.
Jackson was currently in the middle of planning a 50-date concert series at London’s O2 Arena, as well as working on a come back album.
