Infelizmente ele era doidinho, muita gente odiava ele, mas eu era fa das musicas dele desde minha adolescencia. 😦
Ele morreu hoje a tarde, sofreu um ataque do coracao. 😦
Fiquei muito triste ao ouvir a noticia no Radio, eu estava esperando ele voltar a cantar esse ano, mas ele teve alguns problemas com cancer de pele e teve que adiar para o ano que vem. 😦
E pelo jeito vou ter que me contentar com as velhas musicas. 😦
Quero deixar claro que de maniera nenhuma eu aprovava os atos de loucura dele, mas eu sempre gostei do jeito dele de dancar e das musicas dele, que de alguma forma marcou algumas coisas na minha adolescencia. 😦
MICHAEL Jackson has died after suffering a heart attack, reports from the United States have said. KING of pop Michael Jackson is dead. The singer, 50, was prounced dead soon after he arrived at an LA hospital suffering an apparent heart attack, according to US media reports. Jackson, who had been preparing for his comeback tour, was rushed to the UCLA Medical Centre shortly before 12.30pm local time. Paramedics received a 911 call directing them to the Bel Air home, off Sunset Boulevard, which Jackson rented for $100,000 a month. Fire Department Captain Steve Ruda told US media Jackson was not breathing when they arrived. Mr Ruda said they received the call about 12.21pm. When they arrived, they performed CPR and rushed Jackson to the medical centre, about a six-minute drive away. Brian Oxman, a Jackson family attorney, said he was told by brother Randy Jackson that Michael Jackson had collapsed at his home in west Los Angeles Thursday morning. Family members were told of the situation and were either at the hospital or en route, Oxman said. His sister La Toya was seen rushing to the medical centre in tears. The Los Angeles Times and CBS reported that Jackson arrived in a deep coma and was pronounced dead soon afterwards. His dad Joe Jackson was shocked and confused after learning his son had been hospitalised. “His mother is on her way to the hospital now to check in on him,” Joe Jackson said. Police officers cordoned off the road outside Jackson’s Bel Air home yesterday as fans swamped the UCLA Medical Centre. Michael is survived by three children – Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II. The seventh of nine children, Jackson was born in Indiana before moving to LA with his family where he became the star of the Jackson 5. The artist behind the biggest-selling album of all time, Thriller, Jackson was attempting a comeback after years of headlines about his child molestation charges (he was acquitted) to his plastic surgery and his habit of wearing face masks. He had been scheduled to perform 50 sell-out concerts at London’s 02 arena from next week to March 2010. Jackson started in the music business at the age of 11 as a member of the Jackson 5 with his brothers. The group had a number of hits on Motown in the 1970s. Five of his solo albums are some of the top-selling albums of all time: “Off the Wall,” 1982’s “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Dangerous” and “HISstory.” He was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and had 13 Grammy awards and 13 number one singles. He has sold over 750 million albums worldwide. His total earnings have been estimated at $500 million dollars. His music videos on MTV, such as “Beat It,” “Billie Jean” and “Thriller” were some of the most influential early music videos, and his sound influenced numerous hip hop and R&B artists. He was tried and acquitted of sexual abuse allegations in 2005. He married nurse Deborah Jeanne Rowe, with whom he fathered a son, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr, also known as Prince, and a daughter, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. After they divorced in 1999, he retained full custody of the children. In the early 1990s, he was briefly married to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley. He lived at Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara from 1988 to 2005. It was sold to Colony Capital, although he still owns a stake in the property. To celebrate his 50th birthday, Sony BMG released a compilation album, “King of Pop,” in various countries, but it was not released in the US.
