Unmasked Jacko is Backo

Michael Jackson has come out of hiding ... he was all over L.A. yesterday, spending money, working on his skin and buying antiques -- who said there's a recession?

Jackson, who is famously financially-strapped, went to the offices of his long-time dermatologist in Bev Hills, then hit up a cosmetics boutique for a package of Epicuren Discovery, then headed to Melrose Ave. for a little antique shopping.

Jackson bought a a silver model airplane. His bodyguard did the heavy lifting, dragging it to his SUV. Jackson then drove down Sunset Blvd, with more than 40 paparazzi cars following behind.

Maya Rudolph Goes Barack to "SNL"


Since they've had great success with Tina Fey and Will Ferrell, well placed sources tell us "SNL" is once again bringing back a former cast member ... Maya Rudolph will play Michelle Obama this weekend.

Besides playing Mrs. O, we're told Maya -- who left the show last November -- will once again co-star with Amy Poehler in their "Bronx Beat" skit. Oh my gawd!

Tragically, we're told Tina will not be back playing Sarah Palin on Saturday.

Let's See Tina Fey Do This ...

Club Paradise held it's half-naked, Sarah Palin look-alike contest last night -- where some were hot and others were just a hot mess.

Star -- No Fun in Fungus


Star Jones says her dee-luxe apartment in the sky is a big mold trap – and, well, she's a lawyer, so guess what she's doing?

Star claims in a lawsuit she's been forced from her leaky, moldy penthouse triplex because it's an "unhealthy and dangerous" place to live. According to the New York Post, she wants $700K because she hasn't been able to live in the pad since March 2006.

Star's had to suffer the indignity and inconvenience of renting a place ... for $17,000 per month.

I'm.... really gettin' sick and tired of MJ being called Wacko... For a good 20 years, or a lil less, he was worshiped by the media and his fans. Now he'd hit a little bad publicity, and anyone with a hand in the media's taking any plausible shot at him possible. It ain't funny anymore, he's... a human bein' for God's sake. And there's not enough evidence to call him 'crazy,' just very... eccentric and emotionally different, maybe. What does the media get out of taking such low blows at the King of Pop....... is what I don't understand.

To all the "Dave's" in the world. Your racist comment shows the ignorance that still exists in this world. If being white means being a cynical, bigoted, redneck like yourself then I don't think that MJ wants to be "white". And for the people that are white who are embarrassed to be associated with the likes of your kind you might just want to just end it now because soon you will be saying "President Barack Obama". How's that for typical!

just mouthing off    

talking about mj being or wishing he was white. Let us remember who is running for president , everyone is calling african american . Is that possible when you are half white and half black I would think that the blacks would not like him for that . would that be considered a half breed.

uh yeah about yall who are saying MJ wants to be white, he has a freakin skin disease and cannot help that. Furthermore, is it totally wrong for a guy to take care of his skin? Next, who are any of you to judge somebody else? Let the man who is without sin cast the first stone, ok.
