Rest in Peace King of Pop... 1958-2009

This morning at 7:45am Philippine time, I just arrived from work and as I entered our living room and my father is watching the local news, I gasped for air and was in shock because what is on the news is unbelievable, really! The news anchor just said that Michael Jackson is found dead at his residence in Los Angeles, California. I was stunned and starring at the television screen with wide eyes and all ears. It said that he had cardiac arrest and they said that he died at the UCLA Medical Center. At the age of 50 he died and I hope he may rest in peace.

I grew up watching him dance and listening to his music. I was still a kid back then. I remembered I was imitating his hairstyle when I was I think 5 or 7 years old same with the way he dress during those days. I learned dancing by just watching him move and groove on television. I know there are a lot of negative things that he had done in the late 90's, but to me he is still the one and only King of Pop. I heard last month or April I think that he will be doing a last curtain call concert in Europe this July. How sad that he didn't make it. He must have gone through a lot of stress and pressure these past few days that lead to his death. I hope the media will not make a circus out of his death.
My condolences to his family and friends.

Now two of my top icons and idols in the entertainment industry had passed away this year. First it was Francis "Kiko" Magalona and now Michael Jackson. It's really sad for me. Two icons, two idols, left this earth. It's another loss in the entertainment industry but I hope their legacy will live on... Rest in peace my idols. May God Bless you both.
