Michael Jackson was shooting a promotional video for his upcoming tour a few days ago in Los Angeles, and there were images taken of the event. TMZ obtained the photos, which we’ve got here. As you can see, just a few days ago, Michael looked great and like he was having a great time. As we reported earlier, Michael Jackson has died at age 50 of cardiac arrest.
You can see two more photos after the break.
We’ve just learned that Michael Jackson, the iconic pop singer, has died at 50 years old.
Earlier this afternoon, Michael was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest, and paramedics were, unfortunately, unable to revive him. According to TMZ, when paramedics arrived, Michael had no pulse, and they were never able to get a pulse back.
Michael leaves behind his three children, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II.
Michael Jackson was set for a residency of 50 concerts at London’s O2 Arena, set to start next month. Michael Jackson will obviously be mourned by many, the world over.
It has now been confirmed by the LA Times and CBS News that Michael Jackson has died.
TLC has been offering tantalizing teasers, but unfortunately the cable network’s biggest reality secret has already been scooped…by everybody. Kate Gosselin reportedly filed for divorce from her co-star and ten-year husband, Jon, in Bucks County, PA on Monday.
Meanwhile, a “major announcement” will be revealed on the show this evening - if it hasn’t already been found out by the press, and current public opinion believes this is the case. Jon and Kate’s rocky relationship has made a multitude of headlines over the past few weeks, fueled by rumors of infidelity on both sides. The couple spoke openly about their marital troubles at the beginning of the season.
Which, it is believed, will be the show’s last. TLC can hardly keep showing us Jon and Kate Plus 8 when Jon and Kate are no more.

UPDATE: TMZ now has some video of the argument that preceded the assault.
Forget Miss California. Perez Hilton’s got himself in a new feud that’s probably going to last a lot longer than 5 minutes.
Since the blogger’s stream of tweets about an alleged assault by Will.i.am and his security guards, both parties have taken to the internet to share their sides of the stories. We now have a musician accusing the “Queen of All Media” of being an attention-starved liar and an internet celebrity calling the Black Eyed Peas’ performer of being a “f**king coward.”
UPDATE: Click here to read what both Perez and Will.i.am have since said about the matter.
UPDATE: After thanking fans for their concern, Hilton claimed he would not be talking about the matter any further. “It is in the hands of the authorities,” he wrote.
UPDATE: Perez says the Toronto police are with him now and has asked his followers to “please stop calling them.”
Perez Hilton may be used to reporting on celebrity fights, but it appears he may have been the victim of one tonight.
Although the details are still sketchy at this point, the blogger has been sending out messages late this evening through his Twitter account. According to his most recent tweets, he was injured by security guards and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas:
-I’m in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please.
-I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.
-Still waiting for the police. The bleeding has stopped. I need to document this. Please, can the police come to the SoHo Met Hotel.
-I spoke to my lawyer. I really need to talk to the authorities. Please come to the SoHo Met Hotel. Have called the police. Need them here.
Stay tuned for further developments….

Okay, by now you’ve already heard Susan Boyle’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent. (If you haven’t, I pray someone pulls you out from under that rock.) But have you heard her cover the blues?
A recording the 48-year-old made ten years ago recently surfaced and is now making its way through the internet. The song, titled “Cry Me a River” (not the Justin Timberlake version), was done a for a charity album. After listening to the track, I believe it’s an even better performance than her cover of Les Miserables’ “I Dream a Dream.” (You can watch that clip for the millionth time here.)
Note to Samantha Ronson: You’re a fool. Lindsay’s a keeper!
If Lindsay Lohan’s recent split has you worried about the actress, this should make you feel better. Not only is she talking openly about the matter (hello Us Weekly!), she’s putting herself back out on the market.

UPDATE: Prosecutors have not yet filed any charges. Da Silva will be released while the investigation continues.
This FOX scandal might just top anything ever connected to American Idol.
Over the weekend, So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva was taken in by police on suspicion of sexual assault. The arrest stemmed from alleged incidents involving four different women.
Although the 41-year-old salsa dancer had been previously accused of sexual assault in 2003, 2004 and 2005, charges were never filed by the prosecutors office. After a new complaint on March 28, the LAPD went back and reinterviewed Alex’s previous accusers. Similar stories filed by all four women - all unknown to each other - led to Saturday’s arrest.
“The victims allege that he lured them to his homes in North Hollywood and Van Nuys,” a statement from the police department read. “He then used a ruse to get them into his bedroom, where he raped them.”
