Michael Jackson seriously ill

2009-06-25 by Iai EMERITUS | 52 Comments
News has just broken that Michael Jackson, the maker of the world's biggest selling album, has been rushed to hospital and is in critical condition, having suffered a cardiac arrest.

Celebrity gossip website TMZ.com has gone as far as to reveal the singer's passing as an exclusive story, although these reports have been denied by the singer's father Joe, who states that he is 'in a bad way'. CNN have since reported that Jackson remains alive - other sources remain completely conflicted on the issue, with many, including the LA Times, proclaiming him dead. The BBC in particular seem conflicted, with the headline changing from 'Michael Jackon rushed to hospital', to 'Michael Jackson dead at 50', back to 'Gravely ill Jackson in hospital'.

Crowds have begun to gather outside the UCLA hospital where Jackson has been taken, and a police blockade has already been set up to protect both Jackson and other patients - the hospital is, according to the BBC, now effectively on lockdown.

Jackson has suffered many health problems, and has not toured successfully for 12 years. He was scheduled to play a number of high-profile gigs at London's O2 arena next month, with a view to a world tour.

Our thoughts are with the Jacksons, whatever the outcome of this story.

Holy crap.. He's dead!
RIP!

I'm surprisingly moved by this, the media surely has been hard on this genius.

You will be missed.

It's widely reported that he is dead. For all your ills, they do not even compare to all the good you've done.

Sleep well Thriller.

Yeah supposedly he's been pronounced dead. Not a big fan of pop but he was definitely revolutionary. Sad.

Everyone except CNN is confirming he's dead: The Associated Press, NBC, CBS, and the LA Times.

CNN has changed their headline to read that he is dead:

Nevermind, they're just saying that others are saying he's dead but that they can't confirm.

I hope people remember him as one of the most important figures in music history in terms of influence and inmpact, instead of concentrating on the bunk cases against him

i'm really saddened by this. i remember getting "history" on double cassette back when i was about 10, and loving every second of it. i'll have to dig it out and give it a few listens in his memory. "leave me alone" was a fucking solid single, and possibly the best pop video ever. i really hope the news sources have jumped the gun and he's okay.
