Weird Deaths of Famous Celebrities

In this post, I listed several Weird Deaths of Famous Celebrities.

In the movie industry, many of us have our own favorite actors and actresses. Some follow their lifestyles–like their sense of style. We probably have imitated them once. Some of the well loved celebrities who passed away are Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and John Lennon (I actually can go on and on, but I’ll keep the list short). All of them will forever be remembered and we will always look back with all the contribution they have shared to the world and the lesson we have learned from them. As fans, we always assume that famous celebrities live a happy luxurious life. However, our assumptions were proven incorrect in many instances. Who would’ve guess that behind these famous celebrities’ sweet smile is a feeling of emptiness.

  1. I understand the painting of Kurt Cobain’s body is someone’s art, but the truth is that his head was intact, and this is just gross. He didn’t “blow his face off”.

  2. I couldn’t believe that all of them died. It’s so sad that all of them died so young!

  3. The opening paragraph mentions The Beatles but John Lennon isn’t even on this.

  4. @Darby, thanks for noticing I’ll create another post with John Lennon :)

  5. Actually, Farrah Fawcett died of rectal cancer, not anal canal cancer. Anal canal cancer is SOMETIMES caused by HPV. The way this article reads, it looks like Farrah’s cancer was caused by having an STD.

  6. Thanks for your input, Cindy. Yes, our author has mentioned that Farrah Fawcett “might have been exposed to HPV.” The death of Farrah Fawcett was caused by anal cancer NOT rectal cancer; here are some links that can back up our claims. What Farrah Fawcett can teach us about anal cancer? and FFarrah Fawcett: Anal Cancer

    Again, thanks for your input; if you have a reliable source that contradicts our article, Newsweek’s and Chicago Tribune’s we’d like to know about it.
