Rumor has it that Mr. Thriller here has converted to Islam, and to us that sounds suspect as hell:
MICHAEL JACKSON has become a Muslim – and changed his name to Mikaeel. The skint superstar, 50, donned Islamic garb to pledge allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a pal’s mansion in Los Angeles, The Sun can reveal. Jacko sat on the floor wearing a tiny hat after an Imam was summoned to officiate – days before the singer is due to appear at London’s High Court where he is being sued by an Arab sheik. A source told last night how Jacko, brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness, decided to convert as he used a studio at the home of his chum to record a new album. The star – whose hits include The Way You Make Me Feel – was spotted looking “a bit down” by a producer and a songwriter who had both embraced Islam.
Mike says he can’t fly overseas to deal with that lawsuit and that is why he was looking down. Either that, or the fact that the little boys he is always hunting require him to look down, if you get what we mean.
