a POP icon falls
As of 3pm Thursday afternoon, pop-star Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest.
( News story , obituary: Michael Jackson: The Talent and the Tragedy )

The thing is, i never really understood the cult following this guy got (black OR white). There is no doubt that he was a massivley popular celebrity in his time. His music has sold over 750 Million records, and quick search of his name in Google brings up over 10 Million search results. His music, IMHO, was just fine. Not super-duper-great, just fine. I will most remember him for catchy tunes such as "Annie" and cool videos like "Thriller." I woudn't say that i was a 'fan' of his, but i definatley appreciated his musical tallent. And then there were the accuasations...
I'm sure that some people will be much more upset about his death than others.

He was 50 years old.

I feel the same way about Elvis...I don't get why people adore him, but I can respect it.
