We lost Farrah Fawcett (62) and Michael Jackson (50) today. They were two massive icons from my youth. We all knew Farrah was battling cancer so it wasn’t as much as a shock as Michael’s sudden passing.
I was kid when I fell for the golden girl Farrah on Charlie’s Angels. So did the whole world. I had the poster that sold millions and watched her career after the TV series. She made some good TV movies and received critical acclaim but sadly her pinnacle of popularity was on Charlie’s Angels.
Here’s the pilot episode of where it all started
Michael went on to have an incredible solo career becoming known as the king of pop but he also ran into a great deal of controversy with many scandals involving children. He was never convicted of any of the major charges but the cloud of suspicion always remained and sadly forever will.
Here’s a good one for Michael which he sang for Ryan White who died too soon. So did you, Michael.
Here’s another favorite of mine. The Man in the Mirror
