Michael Jackson 1958 - 2009

Warhol's 1974 "Michael Jackson," created as a cover for Time magazine.

Michael Jackson life will still have meaning beyond his passing! This was it!

"Pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead today after paramedics found him in a coma at his Bel-Air mansion, city and law enforcement sources told The Times."

"LAPD opens an investigation into pop star Michael Jackson's death."

"Mr. Jackson’s 1982 album “Thriller!” is the best-selling album of all time, claiming global sales of more than 100 million copies. But Mr. Jackson was a star before and after “Thriller!,” from his days as the piping lead singer of the Jackson 5 to his increasingly bitter final albums. He was forever a paradox: a precocious child star, a childlike grown-up, a superhumanly skilled performer who always appeared vulnerable, a figure who pursued worldwide fame only to find himself besieged and embittered by media attention. In the 1980’s, he was the embodiment of American pop success, with his ubiquitous hits and video clips, his one white glove and his moonwalk, dancing across stages and heard on radio worldwide. But that success could not last forever, and Mr. Jackson struggled in its aftermath."
