On this day in 2009, Farrah Fawcett died in the morning from the cancer she could not beat. They had already shaved her beautiful hair to do brain surgery because the cancer was everywhere.
As if it wasn't enough to lose an "Angel", Michael Jackson died around noon from an overdose of propofol, also known as anesthesia, which has no business being administered outside of a hospital, and by someone other than a licensed anesthesiologist.

This commercial for Noxema shave cream with Joe Namath is where I first remember seeing Farrah.

And Farrah's death, which we knew was coming.. Was totally and completely overshadowed by MJ's unexpected death.

MJ made front page news, Farrah was relegated to the Entertainment sections in most papers.

Always thought that was rather sad.

You know I always wondered what she saw in ryan o neal and after I met him on a flight from ca to ny . I saw what she saw in him . Heck of a nice guy very personable . Yes it was sad that she got moved to the back pages of the paper she deserved better than that . I will always wonder why lee majors never went to her service ?

9 years already......Wow. What is sad is that the generation now couldn't care less about either of them. And they were both very high profile celebrities "back in the day".

Thank you for posting this information. Why, I don't know. Just that they were both part of my growing up and adulthood, so they both are memorable to me.

Just finished bio of MJ not long ago....we knew he was special from a young age, but the book details just what a singular artist he was. It was a fascinating read. He bought the rights to many Beatles songs, an impressive move...wonder what will happen there, selling off for his children? They should hang on to them...what a gold mine!

I think every teen boy and young man had that famous poster of Farrah hanging on their wall. It was everywhere! There were even Charlie's Angels action figures. Remember them?

And MJ? I cannot even begin to adequately describe his contribution. Enormous!

One of the toughest things about growing older is saying goodbye to so many people who have meant something to us, or made a mark on our lives in some way. It's inevitable, but still tough.

He was immensely talented. From the other thread about Jackson:

Joe Jackson, patriarch of musical family of pop stars, dies at 89
