    The media here are reporting that Michael Jackson has died this morning of a heart attack. Paramedics were called but were unable to revive him. Have you guys heard this?

    On the news now, though not that he died, but just reported he was not breathing when medics got there about 12:20 pm in CA. Cardiac arrest.

    Nothing I see says anything about being dead. He had stopped breathing, but had CPR and is in the hospital now.

    Our 10pm news has just been on & there was a mention that he had to be rushed to Hospital today - no further details have been issued to the BBC at this time.

    It's all over the news here that he was unable to be revived.

    Just as a total aside... isn't it freaky how quickly news (and rumours) get around the world these days. I remember reading of someone in the twin towers who didn't know what was going on but was called by a family member in another country who told them a plane had hit the tower.

    News here is confirming his death - heart problems, cardiac arrest, but too soon to know what caused it.

    Yeah... that's sad. Farrah Fawcett was one of "Charlie's Angels". She's been battling cancer for a while, it's a cruel disease.

    Now only they have started making a fuss about Michael Jackson's issue. They are not sure if he is really dead or not, here. I might be the very first to know the truth in Japan through this board. LOL

    It's all over CNN now. The next few days will be so hard for his family, friends, and fans. The picking over of his life will be hard to take.

    On NBC they reported that he died at 10 am and paramedics were not called until 12:20pm. They gathered all the family first before calling for help.

    Strange.

    Yessss I've been crying my eyes out since hearing this. He had a heart attack. He was just 2 yrs older then me and so I pretty much grew up with him. He'll be missed :cry: :cry:

    Yes, there will be a media blitz about Michael. You'd think they could focus on the more positive side...he was truly an artist!

    I'm a huge MJ fan, I'm so sad right now.
    I don't care how many people say he is a nut case, he will always be a formidable artist and entertainer. I would have LOVED to have been able to see him in concert.

    :(

    Very sad to lose two such talents...they seem so young, but I guess that's because I'm heading toward 50 at a gallop. I worked out at the gymn to Michael's music and avidly watched Charlie's Angels when I was younger (along with the Bionic Woman), it was great to see "girl power" in action...seems like today I'm in a reminiscing mood...I'm heading off after my coffee to the CWA Op shop...saw some cool retro cotton curtains that are calling out to be made into a quilt.

    I hope they both find peace and happiness wherever they may be now....

    I am also a MJ fan. Yes he had some problems but he was and will remain one of the greatest artists in the music industry. I'm sure al lot of his antics were just publicity stunts anyway.

    I just heard that they are doing an autopsy to determine the cause of death, his family at the hospital did not know that he was dead while they were giving an update to the press about his condition, and that no one knew anything about a pre-existing condition.
    The family is supposed to be making an official statement soon. :(
