I was watching the news late last night and I was shocked to hear of the death of a famous celebrity.

Their career started in the mid 60's and through the next couple of decades their fame and fortune knew no bounds. It all started to go sour towards the 90's and nobody has heard or seen much of them in many a year, save for the odd picture in those celebrity dross magazines showing off their latest bout of failed plastic surgery.

Yesterday, they passed away. I'm sure you are all with me in prayer for this fallen idol.

RIP Farrah Fawcett.



Oh, and some dude called Michael Jackson died as well.

Oh dear, I see I need to label this kind of post as "Leo's being a sarky bleeder, just play along"...

I was watching the stream on Sky News last night in utter astonishment, much like I did on the day Princess Diana died and they were interviewing all these people. It was when they got to their correspondent in Los Angeles when she announced it'd been a funny day there, what with Farrah Fawcett dying as well, which was the one and only time it was mentioned while I was watching. My post was akin to the (understandably) skewed reporting, but switching the focus of the people involved. It was supposed to be a joke, in considerably better taste than some of the stuff I've been texted this afternoon.

Farrah Fawcett is famous for three things: Charlie's Angels, being married to Lee Majors (and the subsequent high profile divorce) and the horrendous facelift.

And for the record, I doubt Michael Jackson was guilty of the child abuse accusations either. I don't normally pay much attention to Danny Baker, but he hit the nail on the head when he said Michael's life path went "Baby, toddler, superstar." He never got the chance to grow up like people normally do and I think he'd been locked in that for all but the first 4 years of his life. It's very sad to see that, even in death, people are still asking the questions about the allegations when there are many other far more laudable things he should be remembered for. I think he should be left in peace now, but I suspect, like Diana before him, the crap will hang around much longer than the positive elements.
