The lovely Farrah Fawcett, and the King of Pop Michael Jackson both passed away today. Farrah Fawcett had been battling cancer for some time and today it got the best of her. Starting out with cameos on shows such as “I dream of Jeannie” in the 60’s and the “Six Million Dollar Man” in the seventies, she would get her big break as one of the starring roles in Charlie’s Angels. Aside from acting young, Farrah was also a model, and in about 1977 she created a poster that was extremely provocative at the time, which sold millions of copies. My parents wouldn’t allow me to buy this poster (even with my own money); my arguments fell upon deaf ears as I explained that I wanted it only for her ever so cute smile!!!
Michael Jackson started his career as a juvenile singing sensation in his brothers’ group, The Jackson 5. Michael, clearly recognized as the star of the show, went on to a solo career singing the title song to the sequel film to “Willard”, entitled “Ben”. His biggest accomplishment came in 1983 with the hit album “Thriller”. Michael’s life after was shrouded in bizarreness and scandal and right as there might have been a comeback with his sold out Summer shows this Summer, Michael passed away from what appears to be a fatal heart attack.
Farewell to two more Hollywood legends who have joined Ed McMahon who passed earlier this week.
