Okay. You know me. I’ll cover a conspiracy theory. Whenever someone as famous as Michael Jackson dies, you can bet your most prized possession that there will be a Michael Jackson Conspiracy Theory. And I’ll be here to find and post as many as I can!
Michael Jackson died today at the age of 50. He had been living just off the Sunset Strip for the past several months in a $100,000 per month rental house. For weeks he has been rehearsing for his 50-show comeback tour in London’s O2 arena. There was a lot of money tied up in those shows. I’ve seen a few people say that Michael’s death is somehow related to money, but I bet that the sponsor (AEG Live) of his 50-show comeback tour will argue that theory because there is a massive financial headache and potential fallout from Michael’s untimely death.

I, for one, believe Michael Jackson has died. I believe he is dead. TMZ, who broke the news of Michael Jackson’s death earlier today, is reporting that MJ’s autopsy has been expidited. It will take place tomorrow. Hopefully we will all find out the exact cause of his death, so everyone out there can have some closure. However, I’m sure that no matter what the coroner says, conspiracy theories will abound. People will claim that Michael Jackson killed himself, was murdered, faked his death, etc… That’s just the nature of humans these days. When anything happens, we have to create a conspiracy theory. But who knows? Maybe they are right – because it’s also true that nothing is what it seems these days.
Regardless, this was definitely a tragedy. No question about it. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael’s family and friends. May the King of Pop rest in peace.
