Celebrity Deaths

Wow..Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died yesterday. Farrah Fawcett of "Charlie's Angels" fame. She also made guest appearances on other shows and had some movie roles. In the 70's she was what people today call a "hottie."

Michael Jackson passed away yesterday at the age of 50. Details were a little vague but he was in cardiac arrest. I know many entertainers have died younger, but 50 sounds real young to pass away in these times. (Perhaps it is because I am getting closer to 50) Michael's star shined brightly from the get go reaching fame in the Jackson5 and then becoming the King of Pop. Yes he may have been strange at times, there were rumors, but Michael Jackson was a heck of an entertainer. The moon walk will always be associated with Michael Jackson. His song "Beat It" was turned into "Eat it" by Weird Al. He had one of the top selling albums of all-time(Thriller).

The world lost two very recognizable entertainers yesterday...
