With Chris Brown out of the way, the time is rife for Michael Jackson to recapture that young male audience. The King of Pop announced a comeback tour today in London because, as Madonna has proved, who doesn’t love a 50-year-old dancing skeleton? Reuters reports:
“Thank you all…this is it,” said Jackson from behind a pair of dark glasses.
“These will be my final shows … performances in London. When I say this is it, I mean this is it. I’ll be performing the songs my fans want to hear. This is it, this is really it, this is the final curtain call.”
I included the video after the jump which is probably the most bizarre thing I’ve seen in a while. Mostly because Michael Jackson is surprisingly lucid for a man whose face defies every known law of science. No, really, if someone told him the Hadron Collider could make him look exactly like Disney’s Peter Pan, he’d have it embedded in his nostril. True story.
