Breaking News… Pop star Michael Jackson has died. He was 50 years old.
The NY Times sent out a news alert a short time ago that he had been rushed to the hospital. Shortly after that I recieved a call from a friend who said that WBCN in Boston was already stating him dead.
TMZ also broke the news early on that Jackson had passed away.
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. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest.
MSNBC has a slide show of Jackson’s career (already). Sad news… Very sad news. I liked Jackson’s music years ago…
Farah Fawcett also died today. More on both later.
UPDATE: There’s more at Bohemian Women.
