Two of the entertainment industry's legendary performers passed away today; Farrah Fawcett finally lost her long battle with cancer, and Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest this afternoon.  The sheer improbability of such an unexpected death of a music icon with that of an expected passing of one of Hollywood's most beautiful women of all time on the same day merits a quick tribute to each performer.

healthThe King of Pop collapsed this afternoon in his Beverly Hills home and was pronounced dead on scene by paramedics.  He was 50 years old.  It seems only appropriate to take a moment to honor the long and incredible career of such a music legend, breaking the mold in 1982 with his album release, Thriller, Jackson was to forever be an icon and legend in the business.  Even before his solo career, Jackson was famous for being the baby of The Jackson 5, stealing the hearts of Americans with his charm and charisma.  Despite falling from grace later in his life, Michael Jackson has been and will always remain one of the greatest musical performers of all time.

healthFarrah Fawcett is best known for her role on the 1970s show Charlie's Angels, which was one of my favorite growing up, I even had my hair cut and styled to mimic hers—she was everything I idolized as a little girl.  And who could forget the iconic photo of her in a red swimsuit on a blanket?  She was the next sex icon to follow Marilyn Monroe.  Her battle with cancer started in 2006 and was highly publicized by the media.  In May of this year, NBC made a primetime documentary focusing on her battle with cancer called, Farrah's Story that drew over 9 million viewers.  She was the epitome of an all-American girl; her luminous smile and waves of golden hair will be sorely missed.
