Michael Joseph Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009. The international media went bezerk!
Never since September 11, 2001, the American and international junk food media interrupt programming to discuss an event that no one expected would ever happen.
I can tell you that I was at my job that day when I got the word that Farrah Fawcett had just passed away that morning. Everyone was talking her death and the hit 70s action/drama Charlie's Angels.
But all of sudden, here comes the biggest thing to happen. Michael Jackson was being admitted to the hospital. At first I was hearing that his heart stopped and he's being rushed to the hospital. Somehow that gave me a feeling that he's on the verge of death.
Jackson was being admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Hospital. They did all they could to save him. But to no avail. Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication after suffering cardiac arrest at his home on North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles.
On the eve of Jackson's 51st birthday, the Los Angeles County Coroner concluded that his death was a homicide.

His personal physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and had served a two-year prison sentence.
When Michael Jackson died, the junk food media went "LIVE". That meant that every news channel, every music channel and radio was interrupted to cover the death of a legend.
My question to those reading?
Where were you when Michael Jackson died?
