Apparently, and sadly, late this afternoon (June 25th) the King of Pop was rushed to the hospital breathing erratically. Then, according to a credible witness, he passed away. Here is an excerpt from the Associated Press Story:

“LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson, the moonwalking former child star who became known the world over as the “King of Pop” before his life and career deteriorated in a freakish series of scandals, died Thursday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. He was 50. The person said Jackson died in a Los Angeles hospital. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.”

Jackson began his career in Motown as a member of the Family group, The Jackson Five and went on to create one of rock’s most famous and popular albums, Thriller. Amid the scandals and disappearing hue of his ghost-like skin, Jackson has managed to always take a slice of his share of the news be it musically or otherwise. Now, another great member of music history passes to that great band in the sky.
