Michael Jackson Funeral - Live
Michael Jackson, called the King of Pop, has died suddenly in Los Angeles at the age of 50. The singer was rushed to hospital Thursday, where doctors pronounced him dead. There are reports ... Michael Jackson may have died after getting a Demerol injection.
The call went out to paramedics shortly after noon that Jackson had suffered apparent cardiac arrest. Lieutenant Gregg Strenk of the Los Angeles Police Department said the singer was pronounced dead about two hours later at the University of California, Los Angeles medical center. "Currently, the LA County coroner's office is taking possession of Jackson's body. They will handle any other inquiries into the type of death or anything that relates to that," he said.
As news leaked out, hundreds of fans converged on the medical center. Others gathered on Hollywood Boulevard at the singer's star on the Walk of Fame.
Michael Jackson was born in 1958, the seventh of nine children, and he first found fame as a singer and dancer in the family pop group The Jackson 5. He outshone his siblings and by age eight, was the star of the group, thrilling audiences with favorites like ABC. In his later solo career, Jackson became a superstar. His 1982 album "Thriller," with its blockbuster hits "Beat It" and ''Billie Jean" was the biggest-selling album of all time. That year, he first performed his trademark moonwalk dance, gliding backwards while appearing to walk forward. The singer pioneered the music video genre, and arguably became the world's top musical performer.
But Jackson was plagued by controversy as the years went by. He had multiple plastic surgeries and critics raised questions about his close friendships with children. Accused of molesting a 13-year-old cancer survivor in 2003, he was acquitted of charges two years later. His reputation in tatters, he struggled with financial problems.
He was scheduled to begin a series of 50 comeback concerts in London. The first was set for July 13th, and they were to continue until next March. Tickets for the shows, offered in March, sold out in minutes.
Jackson was married twice. In 1993, he married Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of the late pop star Elvis Presley. The couple divorced in 1996. That year, he married Debbie Rowe and they divorced three years later. Jackson had three children, two born to Debbie Rowe and one to a surrogate mother
Speculation is building that Michael Jackson was targeted by members of the mafia in Los Angeles in what was believed an attempt by various disgruntled creditors to recover millions of dollars of money owed on failed business ventures.
Sources in Los Angeles believe various "high-ranking" members of the underworld had been given orders to approach Michael Jackson in an attempt to recover money given the stars apparent rise in fortunes.
The star is believed in an act of desperation may have overdosed on sleeping pills in a desperate last ditch attempt to avoid a grueling 50 date tour in London and confrontations with the underworld.
An autopsy of Michael Jackson is likely to take place in the next few days, with funeral arrangement yet to be confirmed.
Michael Jackson's health has long been the subject of speculation. During his trial on charges of molestation in 2005, proceedings had to be postponed several times when he had to go to hospital. On one occasion he arrived straight from casualty in his pyjamas.
Jackson's poor health at the time was said to be related to the stress of the court appearances and hostile publicity over his relationships with young boys. But the strain of his lifestyle has always been apparent in his gaunt appearance as well as the rumours of addiction to prescription drugs.
The singer died of a cardiac arrest. He had been under pressure to get fit for a gruelling run of 50 shows at London's O2 Arena beginning next month.
We will know more about the causes of his death after a postmortem examination is carried out later today. There is speculation that his use of painkillers may have caused his death and there are unconfimed reports suggesting he may have collapsed after an injection of Demerol, a powerful painkiller similar to morphine that can in certain circumstances increase the risk of cardiac arrest.
A cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating. It occurs without warning, sometimes with no apparent reason, and is not the same as a heart attack.
It can be caused by a heart attack usually precipitated by heart disease but also by anything from drowning to an overdose of drugs or electrocution. All of these can disturb the heart rhythm, causing it to overwork and then stop.
Serious damage takes place quickly. "If you don't start the heart within eight minutes, the chances of survival are rare," said Ellen Mason, a cardiac nurse with the British Heart Foundation.
Reports say that Jackson had a physician with him at the time so it is assumed he had prompt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) where somebody presses the patient's chest and breathes in to their mouth. CPR is unlikely to cause the heart to start beating again, but its purpose is to maintain the flow of blood to the brain and heart, delaying tissue death. It doubles the chances of the patient surviving.
The heart can only be
restarted using a defibrillator, which administers an electric shock. If
paramedics reach the victim within eight minutes they can usually get the
heart beating again. But in some cases of cardiac arrest, not even a defibrillator

People think they know me, but they don't. Not really. Actually, I am one of the loneliest people on this earth. I cry sometimes, because it hurts. It does. To be honest, I guess you could say that it hurts to be me.

in a magazine or see it on a TV screen doesn't make it factual. To buy

Words can't come close to describing what Michael Jackson meant to a lot of us young minds and able bodies.
He stood on a pedestal so high no one could touch him up to this very day. For me all other dance acts like usher, Omarion.etc were influencers in my music and style but Michael Jackson was my role model.
One can't imagine the sacrifices and hard work he put into his career. He is a true definition of devotion and dedication to self art and music.
He defined everything in entertainment from the songs, lyrics, choreography and oh yes! videos. I'm speechless, I am devastated, and I'm breathless.
I feel I have lost a father, teacher and mentor. Even in our very own Nigerian Industry, he's influence is evident. There is only one true king of Pop.
He was an inspiration not only on stage but in character as well. Besides the alleged scandals he was a true symbol of how artists, role models and entertainers ought to behave. We grew with Michael.
He shared his life with us. There isn't a soul that doesn't know or wasn't affected by the great one. The king of falsettos and master of the stage.
His passion for music was astounding and unbelievable. Letting us know that we are masters of our destiny.
I owe him all my abilities and much more, because he showed me how to sing, dance, create and most of all how to DREAM! WE LOVE MICHEAL!!
