Michael Jackson was a Vegetarian

Michael Jackson, the enigmatic pop icon known by all, was a vegetarian who appeared to have been in good health.

Promotion company AEG had been searching for insurance companies to cover Jackson on his upcoming tour. After rigorous testing, Jackson was found to be in excellent health. AEG’s Chief Executive Randy Phillips was quoted as saying, “He’s a vegetarian; he’s in great shape.”

In his 1988 book, Moonwalk, Jackson says, “I'm a vegetarian now and I'm so much thinner. I've been on a strict diet for years. I feel better than I ever have, healthier and more energetic.”

Michael Jackson’s father Joe and sister LaToya are believed to be vegetarians as well.

Sadly, Jackson collapsed from cardiac arrest in his home in Los Angeles, California, and was pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center today. An autopsy will be performed Friday, June 26th with results expected in the afternoon.

Family lawyer Brian Oxman stated he had expressed grave concerns about Jackson’s “extensive” use of prescription drugs prior to his passing.

The Los Angeles Robbery and Homicide Division are currently investigating his untimely death.

Rest in peace, Michael Jackson.
