2009’s Best- and Worst-Selling Covers: The Jackson 'Five'
Monday, March 8, 2010
Michael Jackson is the Newest Chapter in Sudden Celeb Death Sells Best...
The “king of pop’s” passing on June 25, 2009, from an apparent overdose of prescription drugs fulfilled the A-list-celebrity-who-dies-unexpectedly prerequisite for newsstand immortality. Happened to Princess Diana in 1997 and John F. Kennedy, Jr., in 1999, and like them, Jackson’s post-mortem will be newsstand fodder with the “How did he really die?” curiosity. The involuntary manslaughter indictment of Jackson physician Dr. Conrad Murray (who pled not guilty) should keep the story on the front-burner just as did the inquests that followed the deaths of Diana and Kennedy.
By contrast, the deaths of Farrah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze lacked the shock value, and that of Brittany Murphy lacked the celebrity A-list value.
