So the king of pop, Michael Jackson sadly died last night at the age of 50. Like many people we were watching the coverage in bed on sky news last night after Yvonne got wind of it from people on facebook.
The really spooky thing is that prior to going to bed and hearing about his death, I was playing with the new music video’s on demand service that has been released for the playstation 3. One of the videos we watched was Thriller of course by Michael Jackson.
Internet forums I go on seem to be split as expected with lots of people focusing on the controversial aspects of his life, making inappropriate jokes about him or complaining because they have not managed to get a refund for his concerts that were due to take place at the O2 later this year before the guy has even had a chance to go cold!
Nevertheless regardless of what people are saying, there is no denying that one of the greatest musicians and entertainers of our time is sadly no longer with us and regardless of the controversial aspects of his life he will be missed by millions not least of all by his three young children, his brothers, sisters and his father. It is also pleasing to see that his music is starting to drift into the mp3 download charts.
RIP Jacko and I hope you find the peace you deserve now that you struggled to find in life
