Yes, it's true! Michael Jackson, aka the King of Pop, has died at the age of 50!!
Michael collapsed in his LA home after not being able to breathe properly, where paramedics had to perform CPR on him. He suffered a cardiac arrest where he slipped into a coma and died today, June 25th 2009. He was pronouced dead at 21:26PM GMT time.
TMZ.com was the first to report the moonwalker's death, but it wasn't confirmed by the Press Association till about an hour after.
Michael's 'This Is It!' Tour was meant to begin July 13th, which is in 2 weeks time, and he sadly didn't even get to do a least one last show in the 02. There was loads of speculation that he wasn't going to be able to do the shows due to his health, and this speculation has been confirmed by his death.
One of the most successful stars in the world, this outstanding, talented black man inspired and paved the way for a huge amount of musicians. We all grew up watching and listening to Michael, and it's going to be sad to know that he'll no longer be around.
There will NEVER be another Michael Jackson!! Nobody will EVER be able to take his place, he's made his place in history and his legacy will be remembered FOREVER!!!
Social Writer's condolences and prayers go out to the Jackson family! We still can't believe he's gone!!
God bless his soul, in Jesus name amen!
