Michael Jackson passes away suddenly

June 26, 2009

Michael JacksonThe undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away on Thursday, 25 June.

It was reported by the LA Times that he might have suffered a heart attack, thereafter falling into a coma before admitted to the UCLA Medical Centre. He passed away not long after his admission.

He was only 50 years old at the time of his passing.

Michael Jackson lived his entire life in the spotlight, being a part of the Jackson 5, and making popular music all through the 70’s and 80’s. He became a central point of controversy in the 90’s as a result of his extreme physical change, serious sexual abuse allegations, and accusations that his marriages were a hoax.

He has been ostracised and ridiculed, and now his death is also untimely.

He was scheduled to perform a series of already sold-out concerts at London’s O2 Arena – these would have run all the way up until March next year.

The world should take the time to honour a great artist, whose contribution to the music industry was unchangeable and will never be forgotten.

RIP Michael Jackson.
