Michael Jackson, who had been rehearsing in a nondescript building near Bob Hope Airport in preparation for an upcoming sold-out 50-show tour, was pronounced dead Thursday afternoon. The singer arrived at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in a deep coma, city and law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times. Paramedics were called to a home in the 100 block of Carolwood Drive off Sunset Boulevard and rushed Jackson to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. News of his death comes as Jackson, 50, was attempting a comeback after receiving the backing of two billionaires.

BURBANK – Hoards of fans surrounded the perimeter of the Forest Lawn Memorial Park and Mortuary in the Hollywood Hills this morning, waiting for a caravan of SUVs and limousines carrying the family of Michael Jackson. The California Highway Patrol temporarily closed parts of the 405, 101, and 134 freeways for the procession. The eastbound Riverside Drive was also closed, as was both directions of the Forest Lawn Drive ramp. Crowds outside Forest Lawn, which began gathering late last week, meandered around the sprawling facility in search of access.

Media from across the world packed into tents Thursday facing the entrance of Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park, beaming reports to Russia, Brazil and Japan in an effort to sate the voracious appetite for information about the slain pop star. ?For me it?s a mixed experience,? said Jessica Maldonado, a reporter whose Univision dispatches on the life and times of Michael Jackson have informed the Spanish-language audience for years. ?It doesn?t matter where you are in the world, to the smallest town in Mexico, he was the king of pop. With him, the language never mattered.

Perhaps you've heard of the Troubadour Theater Co. and its irreverent song-based holiday spoofs like "It's a Stevie Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Carol King." Well, there's a new one in town, at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank, to be exact, called "JACKson FROST." Which Jackson did you think of first? The Jackson Five? Jackson Browne? Joe Jackson? They're all in this one, plus a few more. "JACKson FROST" is this reviewer's first foray into the crazy world of the Troubies and now I get what all the buzz is about.

Stark white walls brought out the brightly colored art of Nelson De La Nuez on Thursday at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank. With signs welcoming visitors to "Pop Land," the opening reception for De La Nuez's exhibit and book signing drew crowds to familiar pop-culture images with unique twists — Dorothy left behind by the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, and Alice in Wonderland chatting with Humpty Dumpty and Mr. Peanut. De La Nuez, a Hoover High School graduate originally from Havana, Cuba, has taken all the iconic pop images from his youth and splattered them on canvases in his Pop Americana series.

Michael Jackson’s funeral Thursday at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park was, for all its anticipation, a relatively subdued affair — absent of the chaos that poured into streets for his Los Angeles memorial in July. The crowd that amassed outside the cemetery’s South Glendale Avenue wrought-iron gates was largely made up of local and international media, who were confined to the perimeter. The funeral service started an hour late, with the 26-vehicle Jackson motorcade arriving about 8:30 p.m. Dozens of fans carried signs and cheered as the motorcade passed Los Feliz Road and Glendale Avenue as Jackson’s music played in the background.

Hordes of spectators surrounded the perimeter of Forest Lawn Memorial Park and Mortuary in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday morning as they strained to catch a glimpse of Michael Jackson’s coffin and private funeral caravan. Fans engulfed a grassy area across the Los Angeles River as the late pop star’s motorcade — a chain of 30 cars led by five Rolls-Royces followed by more than two dozen California Highway Patrol vehicles — entered into the tightly controlled cemetery.
