TMZ was the first to report that Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

The King of Pop suffered a cardiac arrest earlier today at his home in Bel Air and was rushed to UCLA hospital. Sources tell TMZ that Jackson was not breathing at the scene and, once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but was unsuccessful.

He is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

My heart goes out to the family. This has been a rough day in Hollywood with Farrah Fawcett's passing as well.

He was one of the most kindness men on earth.. even though I never met him, just watching his movie on tv and all his songs he wrote and what they meant. He was a sweetheart that didn't believe in color and wanted to help all kinds of people, sick, old, young, poor and he even cared about the animals and our environment. He set the example that we all should love each other no matter what the race is, we show love towards the animals, we take care of our environment. He will be missed very much, its so sad that he died this young with pain  from people who had bad intentions dragged this man down. He even tried to do concerts to get money together for his children's future. But it was too much for this man to take, with all he has been through. Now Michael Jackson can RIP and hopefully his children are put into good hands.


im sorry

Wow. They say that death  happens in threes. Ed Mcmahon, Farah Fawcett and the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Al Sharpton gave a speech in front of the Apollo with headlines on it of Michael. They were dancing to his music and of course Cher is telling stories about him. Its all good even the bad and sad stories. He was a legend. No matter what you thought , he was a legend.Case closed.

I was in the kitchen, and my husband was on the computer.  Suddenly, I heard him say, "Michael Jackson is dead."  I could not believe it.  This is one of those celebrity deaths that just feels surreal; like it is simply not possible.  Say what you will about his seemingly odd lifestyle choices....he will go down in history as one of the greatest performers who ever lived.

Don't forget Ed McMahon.....Johnny Carson's sidekick for many years in Hollywood.


So sad. Three people in less then a week. Ed, Farrah Fawcett today and Michael.


I too will miss Michael Jackson. YES he was quirky, and I'm not sure of the allegations against him as I. Was. Not. There. , so I cannot Judge. Did not know him. His music will live on as it has for over 30 years.


But regardless will always be a fan, being  the same age, I grew up with the Jackson Five. I hope his kids lives will be better with their mother(s) and Michael finds peace.


We truly lost the KING OF POP. No one has yet to top him.


May he moonwalk in heaven forever.


May God rest his soul.

I'M DEVASTATED AND CRYING WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD, I WAS IN SHOCK AND DISBELIEF.  I GREW UP WITH HIS WONDERFUL MUSIC AND WILL FOREVER KEEP MY ALUBMS.  IT IS SO HARD TO BELIEVE HE IS NOW GONE.  MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIS CHILDREN AND HIS FAMILY.  NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT HIM AND THE CRAZY THINGS HE DID, I STILL LOVE MJ AND MAY HE NOW REST IN ETERNAL PEACE.

I've been a fan of his since I was 13 and he is a year older then me. I have to  eat better and this made me see the light I have 2 diseaes and I have a 14 year old son who also liked Michael. You all should seen his face when I told him . I can 't imagine listing to ABC and knowing that cute little boy is now gone or listening to him do Beat It and no more dancing. Ask me this harder then Elvis. Elvis I liked him but Michael was different in away. The man in my book was misunderstood.


The music stopped today when lost a awesome entertainer
