Michael Jackson dies in LA hospital

By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY and DERRIK J. LANG, Associated Press Writers.

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted "King of Pop" who emerged from childhood superstardom to become the entertainment world's most influential singer and dancer before his life and career deteriorated in a freakish series of scandals, died Thursday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. He was 50.

The person said Jackson died in a Los Angeles hospital. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.

Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

In New York's Times Square, a low groan went up in the crowd when a screen flashed that Jackson had died, and people began relaying the news to friends by cell phone.

"No joke. King of Pop is no more. Wow," Michael Harris, 36, of New York City, read from a text message a friend sent to his telephone. "It's like when Kennedy was assassinated. I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died."

: Saya dengar beliau telah memeluk Islam. Semoga Ruhnya dirahmati Allah... Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raaji'uun.

Utusan Malaysia ada menulis;Jackson pernah dilapor sudah memeluk Islam dan menukar namanya kepada Mikaeel yang bermaksud ‘rezeki”.

Jackson dilaporkan oleh akhbar The Sun pada tahun lepas telah mengadakan majlis memeluk Islam di rumah seorang rakannya yang juga penggubah muzik untuk album Thriller, Steve Porcaro di Los Angeles.

Turut hadir pada majlis itu ialah penyanyi Yusuf Islam, pencipta lagu David Wharnsby dan penerbit album Philip Bubal.

Biarpun status agamanya itu masih tidak diketahui namun abangnya, Jermaine memberitahu yang adiknya itu memang telah menunjukkan kecenderungan terhadap agama suci itu sejak awal 90-an lagi.

Jackson mula tertarik dengan ajaran agama suci ini apabila Jermaine memeluk Islam pada 1989 menggunakan nama Muhammad Abdul Aziz.

“Saya menghadiahkan banyak buku tentang keindahan Islam kepadanya selepas saya kembali dari menunaikan haji.

“Beliau banyak bertanya tentang Islam dan saya menceritakan keindahan dan ketenangan yang saya lalui selepas bergelar penganut agama ini kepadanya,” kata Jermaine yang dipetik oleh akhbar Daily Telegraph tahun lepas.
