Michael Jackson is back in the United States after over a year in self-imposed exile in Bahrain, France and Ireland following his acquittal in a high-profile child molestation trial that ended in June 2005.
The former King of Pop is planning a few "fan appreciation events" in Japan in March, one of which will charge $3,300 for the opportunity to meet him in person.
Dude, I’d pay $3,300 NOT to meet him!
"I can confirm that he is in the United States," spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain said. "We don't give out information regarding our client's whereabouts because of safety, and this is just an ongoing policy."
The funniest part is that Jacko called into his own press conference to read a statement about his plans to visit Japan and allowed only one question. Here is that transcript:
Q: How are you?
A: "I'm fine, thank you."
