Jacko Appreciates Fans, By Charging $3,400 a Handshake

3/8/2007 1:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson loves his fans ... and their money.

Three hundred Jacko fanatics shelled out ¥400,000 (roughly $3,400 US) for the chance to meet Michael in Tokyo, getting only a minute each with the retired pop star. Decked out in a hideous black suit covered with little yellow lions, MJ was hands-on with his fans, posing for photos and signing autographs for the frenzied bunch.

As if the steep ticket price weren't enough, the "lucky" fans had to wait an hour in the cold for Michael to arrive. Way to give a little back, Jacko.

where were this black singer's blonde, blue eyed, white children while he was traveling about? they cant be with their mother, they dont have mothers. The 3rd white skinned, blonde haired baby (the Balcony Baby) Jacko brought home and it never had a mother. And no one was screaming for DNA, not even lawyer Debra Ugli. Amazing how much sperm is out there for sale. Dont these sperm donors ever worry that their sperm is going to concoct babies for Wacko Jacko, and weird Lebian couples?? What if a child wants to know his real father, how can you find a Sperm Donor Daddy? Will lawyer Debra Ugli help these children find their Real Fathers???

Are people so blind and dumb that they still can idolize this nut job? The next child that gets molested by Jackson, should have his parents put jail for 25 years. It will be their fault and they should pay the price. This man desperately needs help and is only being enabled by his family and friends. He is not the same talented young man that he once was. He is now just a sad shell of his former self. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Before you shake his hands, ask yourself a question. Do you know where they've been?

I have been listening to the Jackson 5's greatest hits , I am so puzzled as to why Michael Jackson has ended up like this. He had such an incredible talent. What ever happened to get him to this point? I guess this is all he can do, because I realize that he has diehard fans who will pay to spend time with him. But I don't think he can ever perform in concert again. I really doubt that most people would pay to see him.I think he needs to realize his reign as the King of Pop is over. However, I will continue to enjoy his music when he was with his brothers and of course Thriller.

Well, you got to remember that the Japanese, as smart as they are, wasted a lot of money on overpriced real estate, fine art, and movie studios like Columbia...so they have more money than brains!!

These people made the choice to pay that money and wait outside for who knows how long stop trying to blame it on Michael if you could get that much money from people you know you would dont be all holyer than thow,I hope he keeps that money and does'nt give any to charity cause then he'll just get critisized for that. Leave him alone as the song says esspecially if you don't like him.
