On Thursday June 25th, 2009 2 of America’s icons passed away. Farrah Fawcett, after a long battle with the big C and Michael Jackson from cardiac arrest. The public was prepared for Farrah, as we watched her gorgeous locks fall out during intense chemotherapy, we knew she was losing a battle to cancer.  Michael Jackson however,  we figured has been hiding out in his secret lap of luxury in the Arab emirates and was planning a come back tour in July. Michael was 50.  Their deaths have come as shock  – such a rare thing that Charlie’s angel and the king of pop are gone in the same last spark.

Farewell Farrah
Farewell Farrah

I will never forget Farrah’s gorgeous lioness mane and all her beachy fashion photo shoots that literally reeked of tanning lotion and salty sea air. She was the California sweetheart and Charlie’s Angel who made trendy the “feathered look” at salons all over the world.  Too fierce to be a hippie to casual to be a princess. We will miss you Farrah Fawcett…

Michael’s incredible dance mechanics. I say mechanics because regular people just can’t move like that. A popper and a Disco kid, an incredible singer and one of 5 talented Jacksons. Michael was a little too unique at times with his mysterious veiled children and disturbing rummors of endless plastic surgery and a penchant for young boys. We lost track of the man behind the mask.  A troubled but brilliantly creative soul who grew up too fast.  Micheal’s death was so schocking it was perceived as his final “Thriller”, a media stunt while he prepared for his tour in silence.  May he moonwalk in heaven.
