I really felt for her after watching her story on tv. I work with alot of oncology patients and she has character. She endured alot and kept love in her heart despite the pain. I’m truly sad she’s gone..and wish she had been able to finally marry her partner since he announced he wanted them to marry just a few days ago…so sad.
MJ? I feel sorry for him. Different. He had so much talent. I was a kid in the 80’s, in grade school when "Beat It" and all his other hits came out. I thought he was awesome. I was a dancer (took 20 years) and thought him so talented and to see what happened..how the unraveling came about over the last decade, was sad also.
It’s just wierd that two huge icons of two different decades (70’s and 80’s) would pass away on the SAME day.

🙁 I know, it’s sad. Did you know Ed McMann (Publisher’s Clearinghouse guy) died earlier this week too?

So sad. I always (well, recently) thought MJ was such a freak show but now I feel incredibly sad for him. And FF’s story is just heartbreaking.

I couldn’t believe it either!
Earlier today I was like , "what? farrah fawcett died? wasn’t she young?"
and now the king of pop?
Isn’t there supposed to be a 3rd celebrity who’s dead, now, too? I heard they "die in 3’s"…

^ Ed McMahon passed away recently too. There’s the three 🙁
I still can’t believe Michael Jackson died. I’m watching CNN now and they’re talking about him constantly and they even showed the BODY BAG being taken out of the helicopter and put into an ambulance at the coroner’s for an autopsy. BODY BAG. Then they showed an earlier picture of paramedics trying to resuscitate him. I’m just… seriously… it’s… yeah :'(

Yep rule of 3’s. My grandma always said that bad things happen in 3’s.
I feel for the kids of MJ. He was an incredible talent. I’m originally from Memphis and my family knew Elvis..I feel sorta that he had so much fame that almost the same thing happened to him. Sequestered lifestyle (although Elvis would have never hurt any child ever and was a very good person), uuber fame, and people surrounding them who might not have had their best interest at heart.
I also feel for Farrah. Did anybody watch her show "Farrah’s story"? It was heart wrenching.

I know, how tragic! I was in my sign language class last night, and we ended up starting almost 45 minutes late because everyone was so focused on this topic.
My FI said that they sent his brother home from work in San Diego and a lot of places in CA were closing up shop early because of MJ’s death. Such a huge impact that people closed down. Crazy.

It is a huge shock, but neither Farrah nor MJ were a big part of my generation – besides the freak circus and everything that followed Michael around. I clearly remember him hanging his baby over the edge of that balcony! Lol.
When I said to my fiance that he wasn’t part of my generation, he clearly feels that Michael was part of his. He said he had the Michael guitar and jacket … he had all the music … lol.
It is weird though, I mean, he was young. I am shocked b/c he was young. I don’t know anything about him or his health, but it seems so weird that he did die … I think there’s something "they’re" covering up surrounding his death…

MJ’s life, the last decade or so, is really tragic. He was a very gifted artist but made some very bizarre choices and acted very strangley…personally, I think he must have been in a lot of pain or very unhappy. Normal, happy people don’t behave the way he did. He was on the cusp of a comeback too, there were supposed to be like big 50th tours or something.

Hyman~How old are you? MJ was a part of everybody’s generation. He was pop music. His influence can be felt everywhere from rap music to Justin Timberlake.
