Never Can Say Goodbye: RIP Michael Jackson

I’m in shock.  Really.  Michael Jackson has died today, so suddenly.  It’s a shame.

I was on the Metro (Red Line…I’m never scared) around 5:45 and I heard someone say “Michael Jackson died”.  Well that just sounded like craziness.  There was a quick rebuttal from another random passenger saying, “NO, he just went into cardiac arrest.”  While losing all function of your heart is no simple matter and from what I hear 90% of the time leads to coma or death…The thought that came to my mind was “OH, that’s all. Mike will be alright”.  I went on to the gym and was greeted by CNN’s coverage.  At the time, they hadn’t confirmed Jackson’s death and were quoting the LA Times and AP Wire.  In an interview on CNN, Brian Osman (Jackson Family spokesperson) basically compared Jackson’s situation to Anna Nicole in terms of drug abuse.  Heavy allegations.  That’s serious.  Shortly after that, the LA coroner’s office confirmed Michael Jackson died today at the age of 50.

Somebody tell me this is just a publicity stunt.  Somebody roll the secret footage.

Damn.  The King is dead.  No comeback album.  No colabo with Prince, or Beyonce, or the Jonas Brothers.  Damn.  This is worse than Luther.   If Stevie Wonder goes anytime soon, I’m not going to make it.

Rest in Peace, Michael.  I never will say goodbye.  “Though I try and try to hide my feelings, they always seem to show…don’t wanna let you go…”

Sidenote: [Updated: In the last 24 hours over 70,000] people have come to this site today and viewed the post on Michael Jackson’s children (one of our most popular posts).  Why?  I have no clue.  Keywords make the world go round I guess.
