A shocking yet sad dismiss...May he RIP.

Pop star Michael Jackson has died in Los Angeles, aged 50.

Paramedics were called to the singer's Beverly Hills home at about midday on Thursday after he stopped breathing. He was pronounced dead two hours later at the UCLA medical centre. Jackson's brother, Jermaine, said he was believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest. Jackson, who had a history of health problems, had been due to stage a series of comeback concerts in the UK on 13 July. Speaking on behalf of the Jackson family, Jermaine said doctors had tried to resuscitate the star for more than an hour without success. He added: "The family request that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time." "And Allah be with you Michael always. I love you."

TV footage showed the star's body flown from UCLA to the LA County Coroner's office where a post-mortem is expected to take place on Friday. Concerns were raised last month when four of Jackson's planned comeback concerts were postponed, but organisers insisted the dates had been moved due to the complexity of staging the show. A spokeswoman for The Outside Organisation, which was organising the publicity for the shows, said she had no comment at this time. Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini said: "I always doubted that he would have been able to go through that schedule, those concerts. It seemed to be too much of a demand on the unhealthy body of a 50 year old. "I'm wondering that, as we find out details of his death, if perhaps the stress of preparing for those dates was a factor in his collapse. "It was wishful thinking that at this stage of his life he could be Michael Jackson again." Uri Gellar, a close friend of the star, told BBC News it was "very, very sad". Speaking outside New York's historic Apollo theatre, civil rights activist Rev Al Sharpton paid tribute to his friend. "I knew him 35 years. When he had problems he would call me," he said. "I feel like he was not treated fairly. I hope history will be more kind to him than some of the contemporary media." Melanie Bromley, west coast bureau chief of Us Weekly magazine, told the BBC the scene in Los Angeles was one of "pandemonium". "At the moment there is a period of disbelief. There are hundreds of people outside UCLA waiting for news. "He was buying a home in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles and the scene outside the house is one of fans, reporters and TV cameras - it's absolute craziness. "I feel this is the biggest celebrity story in a long time and has the potential to be the Princess Diana of popular culture."

Paramedics were called to the singer's house in Bel Air at 1221 (1921GMT) following an emergency phone call. They performed CPR on Jackson and rushed him to the UCLA medical centre. A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department said the robbery and homicide team was investigating Jackson's death because of its "high profile", but there was no suggestion of foul play. Jackson began his career as a child in family group The Jackson 5. He then went on to achieve global fame as a solo artist with smash hits such as Billie Jean and Bad. Thriller, released in 1982, is the biggest-selling album of all time, shifting 65m copies, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. He scored seven UK number ones as a solo artist and won a total of 13 Grammy awards.

"For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words," said Quincy Jones, who produced Thriller, Bad and Off The Wall.

"He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him."

The singer had been dogged by controversy and money trouble in recent years, becoming a virtual recluse. He was arrested in 2003 on charges of molesting a 14-year-old boy, but was found not guilty following a five-month trial. The star had three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II. He is survived by his mother, Katherine, father, Joseph and eight siblings - including Janet, Randy, Jermaine and La Toya Jackson.

I still cannot believe Michael is gone.

Through the years i never really liked him, why? i don't know. everytime someone would say they liked him i would stare at them like they were crazy. But the last two years or so i started liking his music, more particularly the song human nature, its so true and beautiful. and a few songs he sang as a child.

yesterday when my cousin got a call from his friend, who told him around three. he told us as we were on our way back from the hospital. i rolled my eyes and thought thats not possible, michael is fine, farrah fawcett passed away earlier yesterday morning. maybe the name was mixed up. butttt when i got home i heard it and i couldnt believe it. i still cant believe it. his music was pure, his voice was brilliant, his dance moves unbeatable. im just shocked, with his death everything clicked.

my life hasnt been so perfect for the last few days and i personally have created my own hole, that i only hurt myself in. and yesterday with the realization that life can end any moment, despite knowing this before, it really clicked with mj's death.

rest in peace michael! rest in peace. i'll always remember you as the legend who sang his heart out for fourty years. rest in peace, you'll be missed.

yeah even i read that
also they said that michael jackson is worth more dead than alive

i just hope n pray that by selling his secret songs, tunes n those dvd's, the family gets some money as insurance for his children :sad:

he died at a young age..really sad..
i actually wanted him to regain all his reputation after the london shows..

i guess this is the life! 'sigh'

hmmm true. its pretty sad, i couldnt believe it when they said that. and then i went onto itunes website and the top selling albums at this moment are all his albums. they rang from 10 to 17 dollars. anddd, at this rate with his rehearsal dvd being sold, and the songs. he'll be out of bankruptcy, and his children will live a life full of security just without the comfort he provided them...

i feel terrible for his kids, not only did they loose their father at once but their mother too. he was their everything, a hero, mother, father, best friend....all of that, gone in moments Sad

ahhh michael jackson's funeral was on today. damn did i cry lol, i cried when brooke and michael's daughter spoke. right when she said i love you daddy, and since i was four....my heart broke. i tried to console myself thinking they will be fine they are with his family but the minute she said that, i knew nothing would ever be the same for them. im sorry for them, and i hope for happiness for them, but without michael. its worth nothing....

rip michael. we miss you and love you.
