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.
I’ve been having a lively discussion with one of our readers, Kelly, about Prince Michael Jackson and whether or not I think Michael Jackson is his father. If you read the post you will see that I’m tired. Kelly has made some good points and presented her case well. So, today’s friday question is….
Do Prince, Blanket, and Paris share any DNA with Michael Jackson?
Kelly has provided a boat load of pics…here’s a few more.
Prince and Paris
Blanket aka Prince Michael II (with their Nanny)

Update 6/26/09: The King is Dead. Michael Jackson aka “Your favorite artist’s favorite artist” died yesterday, 6/25/09, in Los Angeles, CA. A Legend. An Icon. The KING of Pop. We love you Michael. Never can say goodbye…
Now, that being said…please post kind words and tributes to Michael in the comment box in the future. Let’s end this discussion on his children and pray for them instead.
Update 4/24/09: I almost closed this post because there have been so many comments on it. Damn, you guys have been posting since 2/13/08. Why hasn’t one of you developed a blog around this? I just might have to. I’m sure the Google Ad revenue would be huge. Maybe I’ll call it “Is Michael Black?” Sigh, ok I’m going to leave the comments open for now…I guess. Carry on.
Maybe I was supposed to know this, given the fact that Michael Jackson has been in the news a lot lately with the 25th Anniversary of Thriller…but I’ve been busy living life. I understand that he may face foreclosure on his Neverland Ranch for $23 million secured by Fortress Investments. Lot’s going on in Michael’s world too, huh? If it wasn’t for the Floacist’s Blog, I would never know of MJ’s former Black nanny (Floacist hit me with an update, below), Grace Rwaramba, a Rwandan native.
Allegedy, those 2 white children in the photo are supposed to be MJ’s. I don’t mean to be rude but I don’t think that Vitiligo has an effect on one’s sperm. Continue reading

Michael Jackson won’t be making a comeback at tonight’s Grammys 50th celebration for the tribute to the 25th anniversary of Thriller. He was invited to open the ceremony by singing hits from his record-breaking album, but asked for a special on stage honor in return. The Grammys said no. Dag. I think he should have just asked for cash since he’s rumored to be in debt in the tune of £150million after his 2005 court case. Good lawyers cost.
Instead the Kanye, Wyclef, Akon and Will.i.am will do a medley. Come on MJ, you’ve own tons of awards from the Academy…you need another one?
