The Face of Jacko -- It's Bad!

12/17/2007 2:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Looking like a character from "Star Wars," a wrapped and bandaged Michael Jackson haunted a Las Vegas bookstore over the weekend. The funk of 40,000 years!

The mummyish 49-year-old former King of Pop hit up a Barnes & Noble with his three kids -- and it seems The Plastics -- click to launchhe may have come fresh from a surgeon's office -- in Iraq! Leave me alone! Jacko's disintegrating face made headlines a few years ago, when he was seen in court -- with a nose that appeared to be falling off. Makes me want to scream!

TMZ is awaiting a response from Jackson's rep regarding the bandages. It's unknown if Michael was able to speak.



Donda West -- The 911 Call

Bill Clinton's Secret Service: Screw You!


Bill Clinton: Click to watchAn autograph hound outside of Nobu in NYC just happened to have a copy of former President Clinton's book, and repeatedly begged the dapper ex prez to sign it as he left the fish house.

Watch the footage -- Bill finally tells one of his Secret Service dudes to grab the book -- the autograph hound says, "Is he gonna sign it?" The edgy Secret Service dude says, "No."

Listen to the ink seeker's reaction. Priceless. We're told Clinton did sign the book.

It's unfortunate for someone's parent to die. So it really doesn't matter how you feel about Kanye West, this was a sad tragedy and we all should be respectful of it. Because it could've happened to anyone of us or our loved ones.

THere was no need to release this 911 tape. But yourself in Kenya place, what if that was your mother! And that Jeremy person, you beeter watch out God hears and sees all, will say a pray for your mother! Mr. Kenya, may God continue to bless you in your time of loss! And I'm sure the people there with your mother did the best they could at the time.

My heart and prayers go out to the family. Regardless of what happened when the call was made, Ms. West did not make it. I learned from this 911 call to stay as calm as possible to that you can help the way that needs the assistance. When you have too many people in the room you can not help but have confussion. Let us learn from this, if we have to make a call like this oneday, listen and follow instructions to the one that is trained and not to the one that saw how to revive someone on TV

hey katherine, are you really that much of a conspiracy theorist? It makes me laugh just to think that people like you really believe that anybody even cares enough about kanye west's opinion to make such a comment about our government. If you think its that bad in our own country "THEN GET THE HELL OUT IDIOT"

Very sad. I do think the benefit of listening is to understand how important it is to remain calm AND LISTEN when one seeks help from emergency operators. I work for an emergency road service company. Callers just do not listen. They yap on and on and on without giving helpful information. This occurs while claiming they're lost, and don't have any idea where they are!! In those cases, I blame arrogance not terror. These 3 women were clearly terrified. But terror doesn't excuse their behavior. Not 1 out of 3 had the good sense to shut up. The woman calling is beyond ignorant. She's listening to the women in the room and not the 911 operator. I'm familiar with that behavior in my job too. The caller is seeking my assistance. The passenger is giving the caller instructions that contradict every question, or instruction I give that might help the caller. People, when you call an emergency operator for medical, or road side emergencies, let the call receiver HELP you. That's what we're here for. And that's why listening to this call is helpful. Last, everyone should take a CPR course. Amazing to think how many people are duplicitous in her death. A doctor that performs unnecessary surgeries multiplied x how many we still don't know. The victim who went home and not to a hospital. These people could have had a nurse standing by, a body guard who knew CPR. It's a shame, pure and simple. A waste of life. And praise belongs to that 911 operator. He got stern. He was insistent. The caller just wouldn't shut up and listen.

Whose stupid idea was it to release 9-1-1 tapes? It seems to have become an ugly trend these past several years. I can imagine few things more horrible than to hear someone I love begging for help or the dying words of a loved one on the evening news.

Why do we feel we have the right to hear this? What is there to gain. If the content is important, why not use a transcript? Surely it would be less traumatic to those who were left behind.....

Alas, we have become boorish and insensitive in our "right" to know everything about everybody.

This call took over 7 minutes. Mrs West would have had brain damage by the time the idiots who were caring for her got around to helping her.It is very important after ANY surgery to have a competant person with medical knowledge for aftercare. It is possible she would have survived with that. Someone had to administrate her meds also. I wouldn't be surprised if they did that wrong with the way they all sounded. So sad.

After reading these comments all I could do is pray. A lot of the comments are very insensitive, judgmental, and lack sympathy for the West Family. For someone to say that Donda West was a victim of her own government because of comments that her son made was just ignorant. Jeremy should examine himself to try to find out why he has such hatred for an individual he doesn't even know personally. I pray that God will forgive you (Jeremy) for the feelings you have toward Kanye West - you should honestly check into why you are so angry with him. I really pray everyone else would show more respect, empathy, and sensitivity for what the West Family has gone through in their loss and time of grief - remember the shoe could very well be on the other foot!!!

As an ER nurse, that 911 call was so frustrating and sad for Mrs. West. CPR needs to be started immediately to improve the chance of survival. There were many minutes of talking and not listening and confusion before anything was done, and I don't think they ever got to compressions, which is what she needed most of all. The operator might have been more aggressive to get her attention onto his voice and he needed to help get them moving toward starting compressions instead of messing around with trying to move her, which side to turn her onto, getting stuff out of her mouth, etc. since he knew EMS was on their way and these ladies weren't cooperating or understanding him very well. I know they were stressed, but what a shame.
