Michael Jackson is one person in the world who needs no introduction. He was arguably the best entertainers that ever lived. Michael was an extremely creative and talented singer and dancer. Michael was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana; Michael left this world on June 25, 2009. Michael’s early career began with his brothers Tito, Jackie, Jermain, and Marlon in The Jackson 5. Quickly, his talent and charisma outshined his brothers which lead to a successful solo career.
Michael Jackson exemplified true talent through his singing, dancing, and his innovative style. He will be forever remembered for singing songs to inspire change in the world. At Michael’s concerts, there was never a dry eye in the room because he inspired people in so many ways. Michael was a beautiful person and will be missed.
Michael has left the world with so many gifts–his music catalog, which will live on forever.
Condolences go out to Michael’s family, friends, and fans worldwide.

Ed McMahon was March 6, 1923 and he died from complications of bone cancer and pneumonia on June 23, 2009. He was famous for being a television personality, game show host, announcer, and comedian. Many of us remember him as the host of the talent show “Star Search” that gave many celebrities their “big break”. Ed is credited with the famous Johnny Carson introduction “Heeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Johnny” on The Tonight Show. Ed truly brought excitement to The Tonight Show, and he made it the success it is today.
We are deeply saddened and send our condolences to Ed McMahon’s fans, family, and friends.

I am just going over the Celebrity 100 ranking in the June issue of Forbes. The Forbes power rank is based on income and fame, and like many other ranking such as People Most Beautiful list, is not based on scientific scrutiny or analysis but instead it a round table panel discussion amongst editors and staff at the magazine. I definitely would dispute and question half of their rankings but why don’t you try to make sense of it yourself. Here is the top ten ranking celebrities from the Forbes Celebrity 100.
- Angelina Jolie
- Oprah Winfrey
- Beyonce Knowles
- Tiger Woods
- Bruce Springsteen
- Steven Spielberg
- Jennifer Aniston
- Brad Pitt
- Kobe Bryant
