The Los Angeles Times has confirmed Michael Jackson has died.
The legendary music icon was pronounced dead at 3:15PM PST today after arriving at the UCLA Medical Center in a coma. Jackson was preparing for a sold-out, 50 performance tour beginning next month in London.
Michael Jackson sold more than 750 million records globally in a career that spanned 40 years. His musical genius and style influenced a generation of singers and performers. I always loved the songs “Billy Jean,” “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough,” and “Human Nature.” While the last years of his life were crazy, I choose to remember him for the music.
