The Last Words Of Some Legendary Celebrities
#3 Elizabeth Taylor – “All you can do in this world is help others…”
Elizabeth Taylor had a life that rivals some of the best dramatic movies. She was an icon. Her piercing violet eyes, dark hair, and most importantly, acting talent, landed her huge movie roles. She went on to become one of the greatest actresses ever and was the first celebrity to have created her own fragrances (a trend that is all too common today among celebrities). Despite being born in the 1930s, Taylor kept up with the times. She was an active Twitter user! Her last Tweet mentioned someone who is also no stranger to the spotlight—Kim Kardashian. What could she have possibly said about Kim K? Well, the Tweet reads, “My interview in Bazaar with Kim Kardashian came out!!!” But, just for the fun of it, let’s look back at the Tweets before this one. They were actually quite profound. On July 22, 2010, Taylor Tweeted 10 times in one day. She wrote, “Hold your horses world. I’ve been hearing all kinds of rumors about someone being cast to play me in a film about Richard and myself.” That was followed by, “No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself” and “Not at least until I’m dead, and at the moment I’m having too much fun being alive…and I plan on staying that way. Happiness to all.” Then she wrote, “I would like to add something to my earlier tweet. Always keep love and humility in your heart” along with, “Never let yourself think beyond your means… mental, emotional or any otherwise,” and “You are who you are. All you can do in this world is help others to be who they are and better themselves and those around them.”
#4 Michael Jackson – “Please give me some more.”
Michael Jackson is another music legend whose life ended unexpectedly. In 2009, he passed away from acute propofol (used to treat his insomnia) and benzodiazepine (a tranquilizer) intoxication. He had been preparing for a massive comeback performance. There was a lot of controversy surrounding his death. People wondered whether or not he was addicted to the drugs, if it was a suicide, or if his doctor was to blame. What were the music icon’s last words? He said to his doctor, “I’d like to have some milk. Please, please give me some more.” No, he wasn’t referring to regular milk; rather it was his nickname for propofol. In 2011, his doctor was sentenced to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter (but was released after two years).
