    I work right next to the med center and I hear the noisy helicopters overhead. On CNN website, it did not look like they had much to show.

    Wow, this does not sound good. TMZ is reporting he's dead. :(

    MIH, run outside and wave so that I can see you. :biggrin:

    So far there are no reports on CNN that he has died, but his family members did report that the situation is grave.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it is a drug overdose or suicide (attempt). Of all the celebrities out there, he's certainly not high on my list of ones I expected to live a long life.

    I think he'll pull though. Unless he has HealthNet HMO, then he's a goner.

    That wouldn't surprise me: he was being sued, again, and about to let down millions of fans!

    Bummer, I think he was a very talented entertainer and as long as he was still alive I had hoped that he would put together a real comeback --- we all know he had the talent, but that talent was just overwhelmed by personal problems after thriller.

    I really hope MJ is remembered as one of the greats, and doesn't get dragged down by the people who harshly judge his lifestyle and personal choices in his later years.

    I never liked his public image but I was always amazed by his talent. Even as a young child he was truly phenomenal.

    CNN is still refraining from reporting his death. According to Wolf Blitzer, they have not been able to confirm the report with a reliable source.

    Hence why he was about to embark on a 50 date tour!

    I don't know what's wrong with celebrities but seems like too much money makes them crazy.

    I grew up listening to him...as did most people my age. I didn't care much for his later songs though.

    Btw...irony *not* intended.
