Rest in peace, MJ.

I still can't believe Michael Jackson is dead. He died from a heart attack but speculation is rife. It must be all the preparations for his concert tour next month in London. Concerts are so exhausting physically, hence performers train every day so that their stamina and strength will be at an all-time high. Just look at Madonna, Fergie, Gwen Stefani, the Pussycat Dolls... even Britney shed the weight fast when she started her Circus tour.

Reports say that Michael, after years of inactivity and ill health, had been training for the tour. Maybe he overdid it? He was not a healthy 50 years old. And he was also allegedly taking prescription drugs for back pain. Maybe drugs and a suddenly active body just don't mix. We'll know soon since the autopsy is scheduled tomorrow. For updates, go to TMZ.

I feel so sad. He was reportedly going to debut a new dance move! And I was looking forward to his comeback (see my post here where Britney and Michael drive an audience crazy--amazing performance!).

His poor kids, too. Recently, paparazzi got a photo of his kids without their masks. We were going to run it in OK! but--since it's such a rare photo--it was incredibly expensive. Anyway, just look for it online and you'll find it.

Today is a sad day. For Michael's fans, music history and the entertainment world. What's even sadder is I can already imagine the distasteful circus and battle that will most definitely happen over Michael's property and kids as soon as he's laid to rest.


  1. I'm devastated I love Michael Jackson - he was, is and always will be the greatest.
    Since before I can remember I have loved both the man and the music...
    I feel like a little part of me has died today, MJ has inspired generation after generation and the world is a colder place without him.
    R.I.P Michael

  2. Though I haven't been much of a fan of Michael Jackson this past decade, I grew up listening to his classic songs and even the Jackson 5. He was such an icon that I too am saddened by the whole thing.

    He definitely changed the world of music.

  3. RIP to Michael Jackson. This was really a shock. I really wasn't expecting this. That's sad. What a great loss. He was one talented artist.

  4. I'm a big Michael Jackson fan. I just feel so sad. :( Such a big lost to the entertainment scene.

  5. Do you plan to feature MJ on the future issue of OK?

  6. Bucca, ya, I still can't wrap my head around it. Some people just never die--like Diana. They've become almost mythical.

    Maris, ChinkyGirlMel and TaniV, he's the only artist to have numerous #1 hits in the 70s, the 80s and the 90s. He is GREATNESS!

    Glaiza, of course! You didn't need to ask that!
