Just seen the headline, I'll post a few links but you'll all know the truth by the time you read them.

Jeez, the more headlines I see I start thinking it might be true. Hope it isn't but my first thought was ' sensationalism and publicity'.

Seems that could be it for him. He's someone who's always just been kind of 'ever-present' in popular culture..

Poor guy..

Just edited this post as it now seems that the news is genuine. Poor guy, I don't think he ever knew happiness.

BBC article - 'Web slows after Jackson's death':

"The internet suffered a number of slowdowns as people the world over rushed to verify accounts of Michael Jackson's death.

Search giant Google confirmed to the BBC that when the news first broke it feared it was under attack."

It was such a shock when I heard on the news this morning! So very sad, he was a great performer. He was due to do a series of concerts at the O2 in London next month.
