an opium den on Elevation Tour?

got this from Page Six from the NY Post so take it with a REALLY BIG grain of salt. Amusing none the less.

October 30, 2001 -- Itís why they call him Wacko

THE only thing "Invincible" about Michael Jackson is his ego. In a Web chat at getmusic.com with hordes of his fans Friday to promote his poorly received new album, the fading superstar suggested that he and his talent are God-like.

Asked about the CDís title, Jackson said: " 'Invincibleí is the proper name . . . I have been the artist with the longest career and I am so proud and honored to be chosen from Heaven to be invincible.

"The songwriting process is difficult to explain because itís very spiritual - youíre in the hands of God and itís as if itís been written already.

"Thatís the real truth. Itís like the songs have been written already in their entirety before you were even born and they just fall into your lap. I feel guilty having to put my name on the songs sometimes because I write them, compose them, score them and itís all really the work of God."

Throughout the half-hour long chat, Jackson rambled on about his life, career, the album and other projects. Among his other comments:

* "When I come to a town I would love to see a childrenís festival and childrenís choirs singing my songs - maybe create a childrenís day! A Holiday! With parades and songs - oh, I would love that!"

* "Mentally, Iím always in Never-Neverland - Hee-hee!"

* "Being on stage and watching cartoons are my favorite things in the entire world. Thatís what inspires me."

* "I always wanted to be in the ĎGuinness Book of World Records,í so when ĎThrillerí was listed as the biggest-selling album of all time, it was the happiest moment of my life."

* When a fan asked about changes in the music industry, Jackson puzzlingly replied, "How does a 1-year-old child know how to dance? Itís biological. The grass, the trees, the flowers - they are all influenced by music. All the planets of the Universe make music - itís called ĎMusic of the Spheresí - and all the planets make a different note, and are making harmony as we speak!"

* "All the hip hop is now getting like aerobics - itís annoying."

* Regarding his "Ghost" video: "I donít want to scare people. Within the laughter there is a tear in there. Itís always been my dream to do something scary and funny. But we did get the fat man, this mayor man, it was justice for coming into my house and on my property - judging me."

At the end of the chat, Jackson noted that for Halloween he "was just going to go trick or treat - knock on some doors and get some candy! I like dressing up like a monster and getting candy!"

Purple haze


MARK Green got a dose of the rock-star lifestyle Saturday as he mingled backstage at the U2 concert at Madison Square Garden. The mayoral hopeful was trying to find the men's room when a giggling reveler sent him into one of the dressing rooms. Green and his escort of two NYPD detectives were immediately engulfed by a cloud of pot smoke, but he forged ahead anyway. Upon leaving, one detective muttered, "It's like an opium den in there!" We're sure it's just coincidence that a mass e-mail Green's people sent out two days later gave the wrong date for Election Day.

Yes, I'm sure God wrote a tune called "You rock my world"

(sorry, it's not relevant to your post but I thought that was much funnier!! )

I think he already had the award for 'least bio-degradable human being'.
