King Of Pop Michael Jackson Hospitalized

According to news reports, pop star Michael Jackson was rushed to a hospital this afternoon by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.

The paramedics who responded to a call at Jackson’s home around 12:26 p.m. He was not breathing when they arrived. The parademics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told The Times. The news comes as Jackson was attempting a comeback after years of tabloid headlines, most notably his trial and acquittal on child molestation charges.

In May, The Times reported that Jackson was living in a Bel-Air mansion and rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London’s O2 Arena. Jackson had won the backing of two billionaires to get the so-called “King of Pop” back on stage.

His backers envision the shows at AEG’s O2 as an audition for a career rebirth that could ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, and even a “Thriller” casino. Such a rebound could wipe out Jackson’s massive debt.

We wish Michael a speedy recovery. Hope he beats it.

    He was a piece of art…a Princess Diana of the pop world. For those of us that have never known a day without his influence grieve for those that will never know a day with him.
