The grim reaper has been hard at work. I know that sounds harsh, but sometimes the facts are as such. In the wake of finding out about the death of Michael Jackson, I also came to learn that one of my childhood heroines also passed away today. Farrah Fawcett Majors, the stunning, beauty with the most perfect feathered locks of hair I’ve ever seen passed away from cancer. As a kid, I used to daydream that I would be the black Farrah. I never missed an episode of her in Charlie’s Angels. Jill Munroe kicked some major ass! I was saddened to see her fight her battle with cancer. But she fought a courageous battle, just as Jill Munroe would have done. RIP Farrah!
I guess the best word to describe how I’m feeling right now is speechless. The world lost a musical genius today. Michael Joseph Jackson, the King of Pop, passed away from cardiac arrest. I absolutely looooved MJ as a kid. I remember my friends and I performing dance routines to his songs, with big dreams of winning Star Search. We knew every move to almost every video! My bedroom walls were plastered with Michael Jackson posters and pictures. My mother thought I was crazy when I found out about MJ being burned while filming that Pepsi commercial. I mean I broke down crying and was almost near depression I think. LOL Needless to say, I was a huge fan. Yes, MJ had his share of demons. Just like the rest of us. Who am I to pass judgement. All I know is the world lost another legendary icon today and my heart is a little heavy. RIP MJ!
