R.I.P. Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson, one of the most widely beloved entertainers and artists passed away yesterday. Michael Jackson was born in Gary Indiana in 1958. Michael Jackson started in the music business at the age of 11 with his brothers as a member of the Jackson 5.

Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President, Sony Corporation, commented on his passing: "Michael Jackson was a brilliant troubadour for his generation, a genius whose music reflected the passion and creativity of an era. His artistry and magnetism changed the music landscape forever. We have been profoundly affected by his originality, creativity and amazing body of work. The entire Sony family extends our deepest condolences to his family and to the millions of fans around the world who loved him."

I'm a Gary Indiana native myself so the news of MJ's death really hit home for me. I give my respects to his family and to all of his fans.

Kanye West:Thank You and You're Welcome

Kanye West, who is known for his musical abilities and his various other ventures, has teamed up with philosopher/author J. Sakiya Sandifer to release "Thank You and You're Welcome." Kanye says that Sandifer was the inspiration behind the book.

He told MTV that; "He inspired the format of the book, because he wrote a book called 'Think, Think, Think and Think Again.' [He did] bullet points in bold graphics, and he expounded upon them ... whereas books hide the main points chapters in. You have to read so much to get so much out of it. We wanted to make it simple for people who are non-readers, who don't feel like doing all that, and still get the point across"

The book can currently be picked up on Kanye's site for only ten dollars. The book will hit store shelves July 7.
