Celebrity deaths don't usually bother me. Other than watching in a movie or listening to music, they don't have a great presence in my life. I've never been caught up in the whole celebrity (other than collection pictures of baseball players on little cardboard).
But, TMZ is now reporting that Michael Jackson has died. CNN is saying he is in a coma.
He was rushed to the hospital in apparent cardiac arrest. It makes me sick. I don't know why. I was never a big Michael fan, but anytime I heard his music I thought to myself, "Damn, he was so good."
Just two nights ago I played "Beat It" on Guitar Hero and said to my boyfriend, "How can you not love this song?"
He had some serious issues in his life. There were harsh accusations and tough things he had to deal with that I will never understand.
And, yet, I still feel as though I lost something.
What a sad life. What a sad death (if that's the case).
And now, CNN is saying that the LA Times and CBS News are saying he is dead. So there it is.
