Fans around the world react to the death of singer Michael Jackson, who collapsed at his Los Angeles, California, home on Thursday and died at UCLA Medical Center. He was 50.
Some say the death of the music icon is like losing a relative. "It's like my generation's Elvis passing away," says one man.
Mothers recall passing on his dances such as "The Moonwalk" to their children, and one fan says Jackson's name was one of the first celebrity names she learned as a child.
