    Default Michael Jackson Dead at 50

    UPDATE: Michael Jackson is dead at 50. Read the rest of the thread for further details.

    Doesn't look too good for the King of Pop...

    L.A. Times: Michael Jackson is in a coma


    Looks like we're going to have two big celebrity news stories today.

    Neither are good.

    In a breaking news alert, The Los Angeles Times just reported that troubled pop star Michael Jackson has been rushed to the hospital.

    Jackson, 50, was not breathing when paramedics arrived at his home about 12:26 p.m.

    Celebrity news site TMZ reports that Jackson suffered a heart attack and is posting a series of updates from Los Angeles, including a note that Michael's father says "he is not doing well."

    Updates to come.

    2:33 p.m. -- CNN is now also reporting on its home page that Jackson had a heart attack, sourcing affiliate KTLA. Here's the KTLA report.

    2:38 p.m. -- The news is taking off on microblogging site Twitter, where many are stunned by the coincidence with Fawcett's death ...

    guinnytastic: Dude, if Michael Jackson dies the same day as Farah Fawcett, I'm gonna lose it.


    ... and others are recalling the fervent fandom that followed him through the peak of his career in the 80s:

    JessicaDHughes: omg if michael jackson dies i'll die.

    2:56 p.m. -- As rumors swirl and the world waits to hear what's really going on, hits to Jackson's music videos on YouTube are skyrocketing -- as are the comments. Here's the official Michael Jackson YouTube channel.

    3:06 -- The Los Angeles Times is now reporting that Jackson is in a coma and family are arriving at his bedside.

    Celebrity icons are dropping left and right!! I'm blaming Chinese Triads...

    Feel free to throw updates in this thread (or remembrances/flames).


    Thread merger...


    (CNN) -- Entertainer Michael Jackson was taken to a hospital on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest, sources briefed on the situation told CNN.

    Paramedics revived Jackson before taking him to the hospital.

    Fire Capt. Steve Ruda told CNN a 911 call came in from a west Los Angeles residence at 12:21 p.m.

    Ruda said Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center.

    Asked specifics of the patient's condition, the spokesman said he could not discuss them because of federal privacy laws.

    The music icon from Gary, Indiana, was known as the "King of Pop."

    Jackson was the seventh of nine children in a well-known musical family.

    According to TMZ, he is dead, but I don't see that on other news sites.

    TMZ reports that Michael Jackson has died.

    The gossip site says that King of Pop Michael Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest early in the afternoon with EMTs working furiously to revive him.

    They also report that when the paramedics arrived, Jackson reportedly had no pulse.

    The singer is survived by his three children -- Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.
    Wow, that's nuts! I never would have thought a heart attack at such a relatively young age

    Shep Smith just called it too.

    Irony:

    Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina) was overheard to say during her "I got my bikini bod back after baby birth" photoshoot that she hoped Farrah Fawcett didn't die and push her off the cover of People.

    Then Jacko dies the same day as Fawcett........
