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.

Does he even realize how ridiculous he looks in that ridiculous suit?

And how ridiculous that anybody would spend that ridiculous amount to shake the hand of somebody as ridiculous as him dressed in such a ridiculous suit.

For $3,400, he didn't even have the decency to remove his sunglasses, how rude.....and ridiculous.

I wish Michael a successful comeback, he has been making music for us to party to for years, videos, even Christmas songs. He deserves better, give him a break.

Kay,

Before posting, please learn English and punctuation. Also, learn how to appreciate good music, not crap from a worthless, has-been mentally ill pedophile.

Thank you.

Worse and very bias reporting I've ever read. Sounds very hateful and envious toward an INNOCENT man ... on all 10 counts. The Beatles & Elvis music catalogs guarantees this man is not broke. STOP THE LIES.

Normal Person    

Interesting how the majority of the "MJ is a god, you are all just jealous" posters could not even begin to understand how to use the English language properly. Anyone with any intelligence would know that MJ was exploiting these people. I could never respect anyone, celebrity or normal person, who would profit huge sums of money to essentially greet folks. That right there should tell those who actually like Michael that he is immoral and a royal jackass (that is unless he uses the money for charity, of course, but who knows what he did with it.) Michael is known for his wild spending sprees and propensity to be in debt.

If Michael wants to earn any respect from me, he would need to start actually working again, record a new CD and start changing his image, which includes staying away from questionable meetings with young children.

It is a total damned idiot who would pay big money (or any money) to meet one of the child molestors from hell. jackson needs to give that money he made back to the children he has molested so they pay for the years of therapy they may need as a result of being fondled, ext by this pervert. i always loved Jackasons music, but on a personal basis I wouldnt want a damned thing to do with him.
