We Knew Farrah was dying.
We were basically just waiting for THAT 'breaking news' clip. So it wasn't really a long-lasting big-money/rating/ect story.
But MJ Dying, SUDDENLY, and RIGHT Before a Tour?
That's more 'Shocking' because we -weren't- expecting it. Nobody -knew- it was going to happen. So of course, loads of people across the universe were glued to their TV sets. Now. Don't get me wrong. I was REALLY Pissed that I missed Keith and Rachel last night. But I don't expect most TV Stations to stop paying tribute until after the autopsy, burial, and a week after he's 6 ft under. Or, well, whatever their doing to him.
Mate no offense, but his death did not surprise me at all. I am actually surprised that his body held out for as long as it did with his abuse of prescription medication.
When I heard he had died, I honestly had no physical sensation of shock or surprise at all, like I have had with other people.
