I read an interesting article over at Beautiful Without Consquence this weekend which raised the question of whether or not anorexia played a role in Michael Jackson’s untimely death.
While he always looked painfully skinny to me, I hadn’t heard much about that suspicion until now.
But then today on the Huffington Post, I found a second article that brought up the very same suspicion.
I’m no expert, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the autopsy/toxicology reports will show a combination of malnutrition, various illnesses and over-medication/over-reliance on prescription drugs contributed to his death.
If he was, indeed, starving himself … coupled with the cocktail of drugs he was supposedly on, it’s no wonder his heart gave out.
What I think is saddest of all is that an intervention could have probably helped save his life. Unfortunately, the world has lost yet another iconic figure.
Love him or loathe him for his wacky, crazy and controversial personal life, it’s hard to deny that he was a creative genuis … or that he will be missed.
How about you? What were your thoughts of MJ’s passing? Did you grow up listening to him?
