He's mad, he's mad, shamon

Yet another twist in the saga of Michael Jackson's residency at the O2 Arena in London. According to The Sun the king of pop, who has been stricken with skin cancer, spoke to fans in LA after running through the routine for the shows at Burbank studios and let rip at the promoters for booking 40 dates more than he wanted behind his back and not putting the tour on around the world.

'I'm really angry with them booking me up to do 50 shows,' he said, in a rare moment of candour. 'I only wanted to do 10, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place.

'Thank you for your love and support, I want you guys to know I love you very much. I don't know how I'm going to do these shows. I'm not a big eater - I need to put some weight on.

'I went to bed knowing I sold 10 dates, and woke up to the news I was booked to do 50.'
