Yes, we know he went weird, but Michael Jackson’s Thriller is still one of our favourites and we remember him as he was – not as he became.

It looks like he had a heart attack in Los Angeles.

    Michael Jackson has not officially been declared “Dead”. Just because he was not breathing at the time paramedics arrived, does not mean he can not be revived. However, having said that only 2% of all true cardiac arrests are brought back. Depending on how long he was VSA, he and his family may wish he, in fact, had died rather than possible brain damage.

    RIP Michael…

    Hi PP,

    Reports are now that he is gone. Multiple sources. CNN on satellite

    Haven’t seen a press conference at the hospital but that will be happening if the reports are correct.

  4. PiedPiper

    You are correct BFP. It is now official. Michael Jackson dead. This is not ghoulishness on my part but I would love to read the autopsy results. Fifty is relatively young to die of a heart attack.

    Hollywood lost 2 more popular entertainers besides Michael Jackson (Being the iconic pop star) this week alone.

    This is a sad week in Hollywood.

    Michael Jackson’s last words: “At last I’ll be white”

    While Michael Jackson may have been a pop icon, let us remember that he was also a child predator.
    Furthermore, while police blocked off the enterance to the UCLA Emergency Room because of a deceased pop star, where did all the other emergency patients go…did they have to be transported across town to Cedars-Sinai in traffic? If so, was their care (or lives) compromised because of this delay in care?

    A heart attack and cardiac arrest are not the same thing. in a cardiac arrest, the heart stops working completely and most people do not ever survive. in a heart attack, the heart is still working but in a compromise state and many people do survive heart attacks with some people having a minor heart attack and not aware of it.

    Well, i guess he wasn’t allwhite

    Was Michael ever convicted of being a predator? God knows what did or didn’t take place. Let Him be the judge. Anyway I don’t think this is the time to be dwelling on such. Lots of people are in grief right now across the world. Why is it that people can never focus on the good that others did, the lives they would have touched. I’m not making excuses for him, but neither am I throwing stones at him for I don’t know that he was guilty as you are saying. I think his family would appreciate some kind words at this time. My regret is that he didn’t use his gift to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  13. I think you are crazy, jackson wasn’t in good health. why did he take all those idiotic operations. DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT WAS GOOD FOR HIM?
    Best wishes to the jackson family btw.
    RIP Jackson

    To see a soul who transends the politics and hatred, is truly uplifting and in of itself contributes more to world unity and understanding than any other action can.

    Fare thee well, Gunslinger.

    Any of you hear MacFingal talking about MJ on LOVE FM today?

    I was with a couple of tourists (one Jamaican, one Brit) doing an island tour, and they couldn’t stop laughing as we listened to him being interviewed by Gaynelle – but not in a good way. They couldn’t believe how foolish, rambling and incoherent Mac was. And he did sound terrible in truth, mispronouncing words constantly.

    And then he mentioned that he’s a teacher and they just went WHAAT?? I laughed it off, but I was really ashamed.

    What a role-model for our youth.


    RIP Michael.

    The only impression I have had of Mac Fingall was when he “buse” me on a football field between Lodge & another school.

    The ball had gone off the field, and instinctively, I kicked a spare ball on, not knowing that the ball that went off had been recovered, so there was 2 balls on the field, which was against the rules.

    Mac saw me do this and nearly tore off my head, yelling if I was “stupid” and “what I do that for.”

    To be quite honest, I was so shocked at having a teacher say this that I just walked off without answering.

    This was my only impression of him. I have never met him under any other circumstance.
