Michael Jackson dead of heart attack at 50

Still awaiting official confirmation.


What was his personal physician doing with him when he died? Was he called sooner? Was he there all the time?

He passed a medical just last month - but stranger things have happened.

Was there any other news today?

Rani Shaddler's on teevee now schpeaking about Michael Jackshuns death.

Surely they'd be insured... that would be what his health check prior to the contract signing was all about, wouldn't it?

I don't want to start a rumour but I was walking the dog an hour ago and around the corner came this chap in a long coat with the collars pulled up. As he passed, I glanced and he was whistling something about 'A,B,'s as easy as...', he turned on one ankle and did this shimmy thing on the grass, very impressive.

As I said, I don't want to start a rumour, but what if..

All over the TV here, too. Looks pretty official.

Gissa break, Dylan!
It wasn't official thismorning!

I was mildly amused to hear someone saying that it's not unheard of for Afro-Americans to suffer from heart disease in their 50s... golly! I thought Michael was white now...

Vodkapundit, huh?

Sorry, didn't mean it to be rude. :)

Cable news channel here went more than an hour without a commercial break running footage of helicopter transfers, crying fans, Madonna Twitter updates etc etc. They had commercial breaks during Obama's inauguration, during the Iranian protests and druing the French Presidential elections but not for the death of Jacko - very strange. Even the 'crawling' news bar at the bottom of the screen was only doing Jackson updates - no other news.

Funniest thing was the senior French journalist at the White House who seemed really annoyed that she was being forced to talk about the international reaction to Jackson's death when she's spent the last week giving pretty good analysis of the situation in Iran. The look on her face was...well, imagine Laurie Oakes being forced to report the Logies and you're close! :)

Just read somewhere else an opinion that the autopsy will be very interesting. Hope they perform it well clear of naked flames....

Yeah, been 'vodkablogging' for a couple of months now. Nice to have a little hobby - especially nice that it's a hobby that encourages drinking! :)

Checked the music library: ABBA, Welsh choirs, Traveling Wilburys, etc; no Michael Jackson.
Sorry, not moved.

Let me guess:

He died of plastic poisoning.

He choked on his own nose.

He got crushed by a baby elephant after trying to play with its dick.

You can see some Jackson jokes over at The Shadowlands.
