2 pop culture icons die within 24 hours

26 06 2009

First there was the expected yet tragic death of former Charlie’s Angel Farrah Fawcett. She died 62 years old of anal cancer, something she was diagnosed with 3 years ago. She fought like a lion and tried all kinds of medical treatment in the U.S. as well as in Germany to get better. Unfortunately she did not succeed. She will probably always be remembered for her fabulous hair and great mega-watt smile, a true icon of the 70’s.

And then Michael Jackson,pop icon of the 80’s, who died at 50 from a cardiac arrest. Just while he was preparing for his big comeback in the London Arena. I had my doubts that he would be able to make that, but certainly nobody expected this. While I was never a fan, he truly was a great entertainer but also a very troubled spirit. I feel saddened for his children, but hope they can lead a more normal life now. Lots of stars have already passed their condolences, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Brooke Shields, Van Halen and more.
