MICHAEL JACKSON...DEAD AT 50


If I think of Michael Jackson I like to remember him as the youngest of the Jackson Five. Before he turned white and weird. What a day for loses.
(CNN) -- Michael Jackson, the show-stopping singer whose best-selling albums -- including "Off the Wall," "Thriller" and "Bad" -- and electrifying stage presence made him one of the most popular artists of all time, died Thursday, CNN has confirmed.
Michael Jackson, shown in 2008, was one of the biggest pop stars in history.
He was 50.
He collapsed at his residence in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles, California, about noon Pacific time, suffering cardiac arrest, according to brother Randy Jackson. He died at UCLA Medical Center.

You should post a black wreath on your blog today.

Yes, I want to remember Michael as a little boy with such a tremendous talent.

That's three icons in just a short time. Can we stop at three?

It's like my childhood is disappearing.

The man was massively creative but a very much tormented soul. His is an example of that trite saying, "money doesn't buy happiness."

RIP MJ
