Michael Jackson, 50, has died.
The iconic entertainer was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital from his west Los Angeles residence, suffering from cardiac arrest, in the afternoon of Thursday, June 26. Paramedics performed CPR in route. Family members were notified and arrived at the hospital after Jackson slipped into a coma. Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center. Entrance to the hospital was carefully monitored with security guards even refusing entrance to some hospital staffers.
In the time immediately leading up to his death, Jackson suffered from fatigue bouts and was prone to fad dieting.
Jackson was preparing for his world tour, which, some say, would have helped with his mounting financial problems.

Justin Timberlake may want to take a page from the book of illustrious Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman when it comes to promoting liquor in Las Vegas. While Goodman occasionally makes appearances with showgirls and gin, Timberlake now likes to dance and sing his way through Las Vegas appearances with his new 901 tequila buddy. He’s been spotted at XS at Encore, the Playboy Club at the Palms, and elsewhere swigging on the yummy brew.
901 is the area code of Memphis where Timberlake grew up and according to Timberlake, “It’s also the time that the evening stops and the night officially begins.”
901 tequila will be available in May, sold exclusively in Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles.
