Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson

Shocking news today to hear the news of two icons passing away in entertainment industry. I felt like these two people were a part of our lives in our living rooms on the television while I was growing up.

Farrah Fawcett made a her famous feathered hair which every girl and woman had to have while Charlie's Angels aired. This show was one of my favorite programs growing up. There was something cool about three pretty women that never got hurt on the job as detectives and dressed up in the latest Southern California style that everybody dreamed of. I didn't know about her battling cancer until today, a tough battle that no one wants to deal with.

Michael Jackson made his statement as a boy with the Jackson 5 then solo. He set a trend with his glitter glove, moon walk, and zipper leather jackets. His Thriller album was one of the best. He was on a successful role but his personal life got messy. The media was always hungry to tease Michael.

Both artists will be remembered for their roles in the entertainment industry. Both were a part of our lives in one way or another. They reached to us and we reached back, we grew up with both of them on the television set, we embraced they're talents. So young and so missed.
