Holy shit. TMZ is reporting the King of Pop was rushed to hospital this afternoon. Can Elton John possibly rewrite the lyrics to “Candle in the Wind” a third time?
UPDATE: Following TMZ’s unsourced report (see first comment), and after much anxious refreshing on the part of Ben and I, The LA Fire Department goes on record with the LA Times. He’s dead. It’s sad.
Jonny’s last instructions to Ben and I before leaving for the day were “win the evening!”, but it’s really nice out. We’ll have more to say tomorrow, when we’ve had time to think. It’s more civilized that way.
