From Huffington Post: Michael Jackson Dies

Posted Jun 25th 2009 5:20PM by TMZ Staff

Michael JacksonWe've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive.

We're told one of the staff members at Jackson's home called 911.

La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead.

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

It is very weird, thinking of these two pop icons in one day (Farrah, Jackson)-- imagine the lobby in heaven with them strolling in together! Beyond surreal.

I look for a better life for Jackson's kids. When I learned about his crazy upbringing, it was easy to see how such an individual could get so out of control in so many bizarre ways. (Not to excuse it, but to say it makes for a lot less surprises?) I truly hope he is at peace. If he is it's probably the first time since he was born.

For his kids I hope complete anonymity-- not the same fate imposed on other offspring of the ridiculously famous.

Yep - he's a gonner. He's dead!
Just seen a newsflash on BBC News and Sky television.
He had a cardiac arrest and was unresponsive when paramedics got to him.

There will be a huge global outpouring of grief,mourning and loss for this hugely successfull icon of music but he was also a trajic and somewhat weird character in life.

His influence on music across every spectrum of music is massive.

I just wonder if the mass mourning and media coverage will be equal to and on the same scale as that of JF Kennedy or Marilyn Monroe or more recently, Princess Diana,here in the UK.

It would'nt suprise me if it is. This will be headline news across the planet for quite some time to come.

The shame of it is that the little super star in life had massive debts but in death his music and his legacy will be worth many many times the fortune he amassed and then lost when he was alive.
So some parasitic vultures will be rubbing their hands in glee.

Such a shame.

It would seem from the news on BBC TV some 20 minutes ago Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest. Sad passing for a very troubled performer. Not my personal favourite, but my son was inspired to dance by him. I actually enjoyed quite a bit of his mid eighties music, and I was deep in young love when "I want you back" was charting and the Jackson Five were making it big over here.

Alleged, Amergin. Alleged. There were some wacko people trying to live on the fringe of his strange household who seemed to think that pushing into the court system would still gain them some cash. Did anyone ever charge that strange family with a crime? Extortion?

NYC, go find the TMZ site and unload over there. Guests, use a moniker or your posts can be deleted.

Jackson was very talented. Hopefully that will be his legacy. I agree with Susan, his upbringing was downright strange. I hope his children are raised in anonymous normalcy.

Yes we will see hords of people hugging eachother and crying tomorrow, the next day and until the funeral. People who never knew him will latch onto the public mourning thing. It cannot be ignored that he had a strange interest in young boys and the money to buy his way out of it. That is what I will remember him for.

I always enjoyed the Jackson Five and he was so cute and so talented at such a young age. I enjoyed his dancing and so did my daughters, but then he did get so weird. I think he was as much a victim of his talents, upbringing, etc. as anyone else may have been a victim of his interests. His life seems to have been such a sad dichotomy. Only six years younger than I...I hope he has found some peace. I think he was quite tortured.

Too young to die in this age of longer life expectancy. Not a huge fan myself, but my kids certainly were.
Cardiac arrest is what happens when everyone dies (i.e the heart stops beating): it does not equate with a "heart attack" or coronary artery occlusion. No doubt there will be a full investigation into actual cause of his cardia arresting.

MJ's career is the exact reason I am a renegade "folk singer". It's not that he wasn't talented... he was. It's not that he didn't deserve his success... he did. It's simply the fact that the pop-music machinery left all the side-effects on him that it did, not to mention the fact that he was abused and emotionally troubled as a child.

Whatever else he was, he was God's creation... rest in peace, Michael.

I never liked MJ's music, but I considered him to be an interesting character back in the '80s. At that time, he seemed to be harmlessly eccentric. But, at some point, his eccentricity turned pathological and he stopped being interesting, just sad.
