R.I.P Michael Jackson June 25th 2009, Dead at 50

Beat it he did.

In all seriousness, I really hope that this is not true. Although MJ turned out to be somewhat of a freak, the man could get down like no one else. His role in modern music changed everything and the majority of pop musicians would most likely be playing in the Mall of America on a Tuesday had he not paved the road for them.
