RIP Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson has died in Los Angeles of a suspected cardiac arrest. He was 50. The singer collapsed at his home and was taken to hospital in a coma. He was subsequently pronounced dead. Family members including Latoya Jackson arrived at the hospital; friends including Uri Gellar and Wyclif Jean have released statements expressing their grief.

On Twitter, the trending term #michaeljackson has knocked #tehran off the no. 1 spot for the first time since the election crisis in Iran began.
