Freak and a Half

Just another typical media day in the life of the weirdest man in America:

    Michael Jackson paid a witch doctor to place a curse on DreamWorks partners David Geffen and Steven Spielberg, and wears a prosthetic tip on his nose, claims an article in Vanity Fair magazine.

    Titled “Losing His Grip,” the article also includes an interview with an unnamed California prosecutor who investigated child molestation allegations against the pop star. The prosecutor said Jackson befriended young boys “and as soon as they started sprouting whiskers – whoosh – they were out the door.”

    ….Jackson allegedly paid a witch doctor $150,000 in 2000 to put a hex on several Hollywood figures. Spielberg was allegedly included because he did not allow him to star as Peter Pan in “Hook.” He blamed Geffen for sabotaging his career, the magazine said.

    ….The article also claims that Jackson wears a prothesis for the tip of his nose because of a lack of cartilage due to excessive plastic surgery.

    The magazine appears on newsstands beginning this week. [AP]

Okay, Jackson probably isn’t the weirdest man in America, but he is probably the weirdest man not in prison, a mental institution, or sleeping under a bridge; and if it wasn’t for a few hundred million dollars any of the above caveats might not apply.
