"Michael Jackson was the King of Pop and a noted entertainer, humanitarian, and philanthropist. In the 1960s, Michael began singing and dancing with his brothers as part of the Jackson 5. Michael Jackson was always under the scrutiny of the media when in public. On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson was pronounced dead from cardiac arrest at approximately 2:26 pm MST at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center. Michael Jackson died owing more than $400 million in debt to creditors including lawsuits and outstanding loans. There is so much conflicting information concerning whether Michael was a drug addict or not. The media has followed Michael for the past four decades, yet they were not aware of the extent of Michael’s supposed drug addiction. Michael Jackson had many trials and tribulations over the past twenty years which have caused him much heartache and pain. The media has ostracized and ridiculed the entertainer whenever possible.
Michael often used impersonators and decoys to take his place at events when he was unable to. He was an entertainer that loved to develop illusions for his stage presentations and videos which “fooled” his audiences. Michael always wanted to have a normal life for him and his children in which they could enjoy the simple things in life without the scrutiny of the public and media. In July 2009, Michael was scheduled to start a series of performances in cities around the world. Michael had tired of the entertainment life and was only performing the “This is It” concert tour because he was over $400 million in debt. Michael indicated the concert tour would be his “Last Curtain Call”. Unfortunately, he died before performing the concert tour. However, Michael has proven to be worth more in death than in life. With all the publicity for his death, there is still no real physical evidence Michael Jackson is really deceased. Therefore, there is the possibility Michael inadvertently created the “illusion” of his own death.
