its a very sad day .... i just heard that Michael Jakson passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest...
he was such a big part of many of our childhood...its sad thinking of this world without the king of rock :(
he was SO famous - in both good and bad ways .. i don't think there's anyone alive who doesn't know his name, and for him to be gone....its just too much. :(

I just heard about this a few hours ago! It's true, Michael Jackson is dead.
I can hardly think of a single elementary or junior high school memory without a Michael association. To this day, Thriller is still one of my favorite songs!
He may have been interesting, but he'll be sorely missed.

He was definitely controversial but he was also a music legend that I grew up a lot of my childhood listening to. I agree with mamaluv, he may have been interesting but he will be sorely missed. :o(
|couldn't believe it on Jun 25, 2009 @ 08:57 pm|
We just got home from a BBQ party and one of my friends posted a link on FB. I was shocked!! I mean, he's such a big icon in our time and well...people like that seem to have this invincible glow around them...people like that just Don't Die!!
Anyway, I told my husband and he was like, "No way. Don't believe everything you read on the news." Then he told me to read CNN.
I was reading BBC. **roll eyes** It's just as legit as CNN. But nope, he insisted I check my sources again.
Anyway, I'm still in shock. I am not a fan, but he is so iconic... Wow!! I really can't believe he's dead!!

Very very sad. He's legendary. But I can't help but feel bad for Farrah Fawcett! The world didn't really get a chance to grieve for her and along comes MJ's death!
|I agree on Jun 25, 2009 @ 11:11 pm|
...with Spotty. I hadn't even heard about Farrah and was reading up on Michael when I "stumbled" on Farrah's news. What a crazy day! So sad.

I just keep thinking I can't believe it. Michael Jackson was so HUGE when I was little. I remember my gym teacher in grade 3 teaching us the moon walk. He's one of those celebrities you expect to be around forever. I feel very sad for his family and friends.
And though I'm a but too young for Farrah, she'll always be hair to me.
|where were you when ... on Jun 26, 2009 @ 04:33 am|
I think Michael Jackson's death will be one of those "Where were you when ..." moments. Where were you when Princess Diana died? Where were you when JFK died (though I bet that was before most of our times)? Where were you on 9/11? etc ...
I excpect to see MJ's death in the news for quite some time. Like him or not, he was HUGE in his hay day.

... on the day Diana died? On the Autobahn 99 outside of Munich. We were stuck in a horrific traffic jam (standstill for 3 hours), and of course it was end of August and a zillion degrees on the road. People had gotten out of their cars and were walking around and chatting when I heard the news. Someone was like "did you hear?" I immediately rushed back to the car and turned on the radio. Sure enough...
... on 9/11? We were staying at my Grandmother's house during a visit home from university. I was washing up the breakfast dishes when my husband called from the other room. "In a sec!" I yelled back. I was ticked he wasn't giving me a hand. He insisted I come see, and when I did we just sat there for hours staring at the TV. Crazy thing was, we were scheduled to fly back out a week later. I was seriously freaked out, but of course, other than the increased security it was an uneventful flight.
... yesterday? I was driving back from dropping the kiddies off at an event. Was flipping through the stations when I heard the news. I rushed home and immediately clicked on cnn.com to see if it was true. That's also how I stumbled on the news of Farrah's death.

... on the day Diana died -- in Miami, my 2nd year of undergrad. I saw the news watching TV in my dorm room. While I was sad, I didn't really know/feel the impact until I talked to one of my British friends.
... on 9/11 -- in Indiana during my 2nd year of grad school. I was running late that morning and had Good Morning America on, just like normal. I sat down w/ my bowl of cereal and literally watched, on live TV, the 2nd plane hit the WTC. I was glued to the TV. I had to teach a lab later that morning. I canceled it b/c I knew myself, nor any of my students, would really be able to concentrate.
... on the day MJ died -- stuck in traffic on the DC beltway. I heard the first reports over the radio that paramedics had taken him to the hospital in cardiac arrest, but no reports on his condition. I keep scanning through various radio stations to get an updated report. About 45 mins later the official news of his death had hit the airwaves.

...on the day Diana died, I was at home in Edmonton and saw it on the news with my parents.
...on 9/11, I was at work in Toronto and my boyfriend at the time was on a morning flight to NYC for a business meeting so I was calling to see if he was ok....
...on the day MJ died, working from home in BC finishing up my work day. I though the reports were false and tabloid error but hours later reports started confirming that he had indeed passed away.
