Michael Jackson is dead


Recommended Posts

So what do you think? He died of a heart attack today.

I never really liked any of his music except for "Thriller" when i was a kid. He's always been kind of weird. The moon walk was pretty revolutionary also.

almost forgot::

Farrah Fawcett died today also.. thats who i really mourn for! :-(

Yeah, it blew my mind when I heard about both of them. While I have to say I of course did not personally approve of Mike's outlook on life, You have to admit he was a pioneer in the music he made.

But ya know, I really dont remember what farrah was in...

So I guess my original Michael Jackson vinyl albums are now collecters items. I wish I never threw away those jackets I had in 1984. I was 10 then, when I went to see him on tour with his brothers for the Victory Tour. I had the Thriller and Beat It jackets from the videos too. I still have Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad and that horrible Jackson 5 album from the tour in 84, all on vinyl.

Sony Comments on the Passing of Michael Jackson

NEW YORK, NY – June 25, 2009 – Michael Jackson, one of the most widely beloved entertainers and profoundly influential artists of all-time, leaves an indelible imprint on popular music and culture.

Commenting on his passing, Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President, Sony Corporation, said: “Michael Jackson was a brilliant troubadour for his generation, a genius whose music reflected the passion and creativity of an era. His artistry and magnetism changed the music landscape forever. We have been profoundly affected by his originality, creativity and amazing body of work. The entire Sony family extends our deepest condolences to his family and to the millions of fans around the world who loved him.”

Rolf Schmidt-Holtz, CEO, Sony Music Entertainment, said: “Michael Jackson’s unsurpassed artistry and beloved music brought joy to every corner of the world. We join today with his millions of fans in expressing our profound sadness and we offer our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. It was a true privilege for all of us in the Sony Music family to work with one of the most talented superstars in the history of music. We will miss him greatly.”

Martin Bandier, Chairman & CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, said: “Michael was the kind of amazing talent that comes along once in a lifetime. He was an incredible recording artist, an insightful businessman, an unmatched performer, and a true icon. To all of us at Sony/ATV Music Publishing, he was also a trusted and passionate partner, who was very proud of our accomplishments. He will be dearly missed. We wish his children and entire family our deepest condolences.”

Five of Jackson’s solo albums – “Off the Wall,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Dangerous” and “HIStory,” all with Epic Records, a Sony Music label – are among the top-sellers of all time. During his extraordinary career, he sold an estimated 750 million records worldwide, released 13 No.1 singles and became one of a handful of artists to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Guinness Book of World Records recognized Jackson as the Most Successful Entertainer of All Time and “Thriller” as the Biggest Selling Album of All Time. Jackson won 13 Grammy Awards and received the American Music Award’s Artist of the Century Award.

Michael Jackson started in the music business at the age of 11 with his brothers as a member of the Jackson 5. In the early 1980s, he defined the art form of music video with such ground-breaking videos as “Billie Jean,” “Beat It” and the epic “Thriller.” Jackson’s sound, style and dance moves inspired subsequent generations of pop, soul, R&B and hip-hop artists.

Its been constant jokes today. I even contributed some. I never liked him, and always feel the trial against him over his "discrepancies" were just for show, and that he would never be convicted.

My Jokes Include (MJ Fans look away):

I guess his heart forgot to beat it

He was remaking "Heartbreaker"

He was cured instantly as they took him to the UCLA Children's Hospital.

(those were from before his death was confirmed, just his cardiac arrest was confirmed at the time)

Michael Jackson is more that 80% Plastic, due to Government Legislation he will have to be recycled.

He is going to appear as a zombie in Left4Dead 2

Never did like him (Micheal)...

Jokes

He's probably drinking Jesus Juice with Jesus right now. (from a gizmodo thread)

Farrah Fawcett wished all the children would be saved, St Peter granted her wish Micheal Jackson died the same day.

Awww these are so horrible :P

He did have an awesome voice back in his day. And Farrah is absolutely gorgeous. A lovely Charlie's Angel. I'm sorry to see them both go.
