Jacko Tells 40 Kids -- "Start Givin'"

11/16/2006 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Call him the King of Flop.

Michael Jackson made his much-hyped return to the stage last night, and it turned out to be anything but thrilling. The singer appeared at the World Music Awards in London to accept the Diamond Award for selling more than 100 million albums worldwide -- but based on this evidence, he might be lucky to sell even one more from this point. The world's most squirm-inducing human being was rumored to be performing "Thriller" with British pop star Chris Brown, but ended up coming out for just a few perfunctory (and not terribly in-tune) bars of "We Are The World." With his ghostly complexion and voice even reedier and shriller than usual, Jacko strolled down the stage with a swarm of children, and then just stopped singing completely, so he could hug the young ones.

Jacko's one moment of total abandon came when he threw his jacket into the crowd. No word on whether members of the crowd successfully avoided it.

Can his family do the world a favor and have this guy committed so we aren't exposed to his, er, spectacles any more? It's obvious he's been struggling since Thriller over 20 years ago. Do us all a favor and pass the thorazine.

I'm so happy this child molesting freak is out of America. I remember watching him on Wonderama with the Jackson Five in the "70's". He was a very talented and not bad looking black kid. What the f**k happened? He looks like a manikin that overdosed on plastic surgery. What a waste, he could of been known as the greatest entertainer ever but now he's just the biggest side show freak ever.

What was the point of this article? Was it just to bash him pointlessly? Nothing odd or eventful happened. So you have to reach don't you? Lokk I'm not a big jacko fanatic but this is just a waste of time.

Excuse me Sam, but he is the greatest entertainer ever. Not too many so called great entertainers can sell 100 million albuns. It hasn't been done since and I doubt it will ever be done again!

he is the way he is because of his upbringing... just think of all your insecurities you might have about your hair or clothes or looks and now imagine the whole world watching you and commenting on it... some celebrities can take it well and some celebrities cant... hes not one of them.

Bad in more than one sense. I cannot understand for the life of me how child molesters seem to be forgiven in the music world. There is no way on earth that the man is not guilty. American law is a farce for allowing him to walk free. Both him and his music are no longer relevant and it seems that the only people who are fans of his are obsessive freaks rather than lovers of good music.

Please, stop giving this evil man any further attention.

BTW, hasn't Jonathon King got a new single out

Grrr

While I dont exactly agree with what Michael has done, I think Karma has already visited him to punish him-his latest plaintiff was a fraud and all his housekeeping staff are exploiting him or extorting him for money. He appears to be really vulnerable, I dont think he has many people he can trust. Wont do much good for his self esteem.
When he REALLY runs outta money he can always sell back the Beatles copywrights to Paul McCartney-and do the right thing. Right a wrong he committed a long time ago.
