Some reports say he's in hospital, some reports say he's dead.

Nope, I just caught the end of ITV News at 10 saying he was in hospital, then another forum said Sky News say he's died.

It's a publicity stunt.

Spool up the rumour mill.  Auto-erotic asphyxiation again?   
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

I'm sure lots of people died today.
I don't actually know them, but I don't know Michael Jackson either.

One bystander at the hospital said he looked quite pale.

So will the O2 concerts be cancelled or will they get someone else to wear his plastic face?  :demon:

He'd probably just heard that he's been booked to do about 50 dates at the 02

So have Michael Jackson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That is ghoulishly quick off the mark. You can just imagine some twat sitting at his computer somewhere saying, "Yes! I was the one who updated Wikipedia with news of Jacko's death! Get me, I'm fucking great!"

But has he really died or is he just walking in a funny way that makes it look like he's died?
