Before I go into details of his possible death, a little background on how this could have come to pass. Three years ago Michael Jackson wanted to convert to Nation of Islam but unfortunately he did not have an arrest record and was therefore ineligible to join.
However in November of 2003 he was arrested by the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department on charges of child molestation, which arrest now gave him a rap sheet with which to join the Nation of Islam. As we all know, Michael is more white than most Caucasians, so upon seeing him at the conversion ceremonies, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan shouted out, "Who let that cracker in? Kill the M****F****" After being told that Michael was once black, Louis relented and allowed the first white person to ever become a Nation of Islam member.
Then in 2005, after he escaped future prosecutions by holing up with the Bahrain Royal Family, he converted to Sunni Islam. As is well-known, child molestation is legally permitted in and one of the virtues of Sunnism. Soon after, he decided to build a mosque on land near the palace of the royal family. It was while he was in Bahrain that he reportedly died. The cause?
This has not yet been confirmed. Michael was set to appear today (Nov 15 2006) at the World Music Awards hosted by Lindsey Lohan.

Anyway, Michael is to be presented with the Diamond Award for selling more than 100 million albums. If he is not really dead and shows up, It will mark his second public appearance at an awards show since his trial. He is scheduled to perform "Thriller" with Chris Brown and will also be performing "We Are The World".
I may be the only one in the blogosphere reporting this. We will just have to wait and see.
