Morreu Michael Jackson

Reports: Michael Jackson Dies at Age 50

On Thursday afternoon, he collapsed in his home near UCLA and was unresponsive when paramedics arrived, the source says. Paramedics performed CPR, and Jackson was seen with an oxygen mask over his face being hauled on a stretcher to an ambulance, which took him to the hospital just minutes away on campus. 

In his 50 years, Jackson went from the cute little singer in his family's group to dazzling headliner and unquestionably the reigning pop star of the '80s to – amid accusations of child molestation – social outcast. The seventh of nine children of Joseph and Katherine Jackson, Michael was born in Gary, Ind., on Aug. 29, 1958, and began his career performing with his brothers. His professional debut with the Jackson 5 came at age 11. 

The group set chart records with its first four singles, including "I Want You Back" and "ABC." As a solo artist, Jackson also recorded four studio albums for Motown Records before moving, with his brothers, to Epic Records, where they continued to record as the Jacksons until 1984. 

Forming a partnership with producer Quincy Jones after working together on the 1978 movie musical The Wiz – Jackson played a rather sheepish Scarecrow to Diana Ross's Dorothy in this urban adaptation of The Wizard of Oz – Jackson released his solo album Off the Wall, which he co-produced with Jones. Released in 1979, the disc spawned hits including "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "Rock With You." His second Epic solo album, 1982's Thriller, is often cited as the best-selling album of all time.

What? Ai meu Deus... O que ele fez a ele mesmo... Tanta Cirurgia Plástica, tanta loucura...
A verdade é que o Thriller foi o meu 1º Vinil e que o vi ao vivo em Alvalade em 1992...
Man, esta foto é o que é o MJ na minha memória... e Aquele video fabuloso do Thriller, o disco mais vendido de sempre....
