michael jackson rip Celebrities Honor The Passing Of A Legend: Michael Jackson!

I am absolutely at a lost for words! The worst part about this is that it was so unexpected with no time to prepare for his departure! At 50 years old it seems he died much too young. Here is a few tweets and blog posts celebs have written.

Usher: “May God cover you Michael. We all lift your name up in prayer. I pray for the entire JACKSON family particularly Michael’s mother, children and all his fans that loved him so much. I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael. I have great admiration and respect for Him and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to meet and perform with such a great entertainer, who in so many ways, transcended the culture. He broke barriers, he changed radio formats! With music, he made it possible for people like Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to impact the mainstream world. His legacy is unparalleled. Michael Jackson will never be forgotten.”

Beyonce: “The incomparable Michael Jackson has made a bigger impact on music than any other artist in the history of music. He was magic. He was what we all strive to be. He will always be the King of Pop! Life is not about how many breaths you take, but about how many moments in life that take your breath away. For anyone who has ever seen, felt, or heard his  art, we are all honored to have been alive in this generation to experience the magic of Michael Jackson. I love you Michael.”

Diddy: Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat. He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him!

Vanessa Simmons: The death of Michael Jackson came as such a surprise to me. At first I felt incredibly saddened, but as I sat and thought of Michael Jackson, the greatest entertainer of our time, it put a smile on my face. He was such a dynamic person who touched tonssssssssssssss of people with his talent! That’s incredible! A round of applause for Micheal

Madonna: “I can’t stop crying over the sad news. I have always admired Michael Jackson. The world has lost one of the greats, but his music will live on forever! My heart goes out to his three children and other members of his family. God bless.”

Russell Simmons
: Michael Jackson was my generation’s most iconic cultural hero. Courageous, unique and incredibly talented. He’ll be missed greatly.

Mariah Carey: I am heartbroken. My prayers go out to the Jackson family,and my heart goes out to his children. Let us remember him…

Brandy: It hasn’t hit me YET!!! I know when it does I will be a f**kin WRECK!!!!! I loved and still LOVE Michael Jackson!!!

Quincy Jones
: “I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words. Divinity brought our souls together on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the 80’s. To this day, the music we created together on “Off The Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” is played in every corner of the world and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace, professionalism and dedication. He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”

Erykah Badu: Thank you Michael for your hard work , dedication ,philanthropy,& the sacrifice of your young spirit . Your vision and imagination live thru us. I don’t know what to say.

Old School Friday: R.I.P Michael Jackson

Posted by on Jun 25, 2009 in Celebrity:Michael Jackson, Old School Friday, Videos | 9 comments

I missed my Old School Family so much. Y’all are the most progressive and genuine bloggers I know.  Celebrity bloggers (Perez Hilton) can be very vicious and mean spirited, and I’m glad I have a network of people like you.

I have not been a fan of Michael Jackson in recent years, but my childhood is filled with wonderful memories of the most complex individual of my time. We joked about him so much, and took his talents for granted and like an old friend said, “Death adds value to life. (Thanks J Kristopher).

But today we celebrate our best memories of Micahel Jackson, and so I’m going way back to when I was a little girl listening to Thriller on my blue jean record player. Hands down Thriller is the best, some may say Bad, but sorry it’s Thriller. I have always had an old soul when it comes to music, and so my first choice is not the most popular Michael Jackson song:

This second song is probably the saddest song in the world,  next to Man In the Mirror. I love this song because it’s so simple, yet cheesy, but oh so good.

Michael was great at fusing styles and this funk, pop rock combination, is one of his best songs. I forgot about this song until today.

Last, but not least.

Confirmed: Michael Jackson Died Of Heart Attack June 25, 2009 – Dead At Age 50

Posted by on Jun 25, 2009 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos | 17 comments

UPDATE: Michael Jackson was officially pronounced dead at 5:26 PM (Central) 2:26 PM (Pacific).

UPDATE: Confirmed by LA Times! *I’m sad!*

UPDATE: No other news outlet is confirming his death, but according to TMZ his death is confirmed. We do not know definitely the condition of Michael Jackson, so let’s keep praying that TMZ is just misinformed, just this once.

I was trying to get here to check on his status, because I got a text he had a heart attack, and as I started typing this I found out he has died. Wow, the King of Pop is dead. I knew he was sick, and I just told my brother-n-law something was seriously wrong, but I was not expecting this on my day off. According to TMZ:

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back. [Source]

This is what CNN is reporting:

Paramedics revived Jackson before taking him to the hospital.

Fire Capt. Steve Ruda told CNN a 911 call came in from a west Los Angeles residence at 12:21 p.m.

Ruda said Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center.

Asked specifics of the patient’s condition, the spokesman said he could not discuss them because of federal privacy laws.

Tameka Foster’s BFF Comes To Her Defense!

Posted by on Jun 25, 2009 in Celebrity Exes, Rumor Control | Comments Off

tameka raymond Tameka Fosters BFF Comes To Her Defense!

Usher’s soon to be ex-wife’s BFF is coming to her defense. Friends for nearly two decades, Nyeisha Dewitt couldn’t sit back and let rumors circulate about her friend, Tameka Foster. Rumors, that she insist, aren’t true.

NYEISHA DEWITT: Let me first say that I hope Tameka and Usher can salvage things as a couple. I’ve known Tameka since I was in middle school and she was in high school, and we’ve been friends since. It’s not that I have to defend her or speak on her behalf as if she’s done something wrong, but I simply want people to know everything they read about her isn’t true. It hurts me to read the lies that people write and say about her.

ESSENCE.COM: Is it true she first learned that Usher filed for divorce after reading about it?
DEWITT: She didn’t know that he was going to file. Of course, she knew that there were challenges in their relationship and had been some discord since March and was aware there were some things that needed to be worked through. But did she know that divorce was imminent? No. It was a total surprise.

ESSENCE.COM: Was Tameka also caught off guard by the images of Usher and Def Jam’s Grace Miguel?
DEWITT: I don’t know what it is or isn’t. What I admire about Tameka is that, despite all the gossip, she isn’t bitter or hardened by it. I don’t know how she does it especially with children [from a previous relationship] old enough to read the lies that are written. It’s like having to keep your hands at your side while someone repeatedly punches you in your face.

Gotta give it to her, she has a good friend. One that definitely has her back. Unfortunately, idk, how this interview will make things any easier for Tameka. It will only keep people talking just the same.
