Two Icons Passed Away Today
Farrah is probably remembered most for her hairstyle from her posters when she was on the show Charlie's Angels. Personally, I thought her best role was playing the battered wife in The Burning Bed. I hope she is at peace after a long bout with cancer.
Michael Jackson, a pop star I remember from childhood on, died suddenly about a half hour ago. I loved the Jackson Five on TV and I really liked his Off the Wall and Thriller albums. He also set the tone for MTV.
According to the LAT, Jackson was working in rehearsals for a 50 sold out shows in London.
And he was only 50 when he died. Stunned about his death.
I wish their families well in a time of shadows.
Update: a really good YT of MJJ at the Motown 25th anniversary. And I saw it live:
Some think JRE may or may not identify with the song, Billie Jean. Regardless, it smacked of Marcel Marceau, the best mime performer ever. I saw MM when I was a teen. Loved Red Skelton who was his contemp as well and loved mime.
