Michael Jackson appears to be dead.
It all depends on which newspaper you read.. they say different things.

One of Jackson's biggest hits, Thriller, was out in 1982, two years before I was born. So he's always kinda been, to quote BBC, "an odd-looking middle aged man". And, according to CNN; "the most famous person in the world".
Michael Jackson was one of very few people who were truly huge while I grew up. Someone the whole world knew. And no matter how I personally felt about him... it feels strange to let him go.
How long will people remember that name? Will he become a legend, like Elvis? Or will he simply become "that strange guy"?
I guess I'm just too young to have seen the good times.
And knowing the way the world works... I'll definitely go with the first.
