'Michael's hair'?? It's already happened! Only the story is even STRANGER! The producer from the Pepsi commercial when MJ was burned, kept some of his hair that fell out onto the floor after they put out the fire(what a winner, huh?!) & saved it all these years(1986). This freak-producer had it made into diamonds(from the carbon in the hair strands) & sold it!! Opportunistic b@stard or what?!! True story. LOL

there is no way you can make an industrial diamond with that amount of carbon taken from strands of hair,,what did they do ,,shave his head before they took him in the ambulance,,okay wacko jacko fanatic,,lets see some some proof of this supposid story..like a website or reference page that we can check out,,bet you cant produce one hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..welllllllllllllll snicker snicker cough cough

janalal4, you are right. i also read it on the Sun site. i was so disgusted. instead of the producer to help put out the fire, he was busy collecting burnt hair.

visit www.thesun.co.uk. there were two separate stories. the first one was a diamond company claiming they were making diamonds out of a sample of Mj's hair. the 2nd which is quite recent, talks about the producer who busied himself snatching MJ's hair instead of helping put out the fire.

Who has money to waste on a dead person's HAIR?! If you have $15,000 to spend, how about giving it to a CHARITY?!

That's disgusting. You know the old saying..."blood, poop, piss, dead skin, and hair shouldn't be sold at auction." haha

Wow.... I sure envy his barber.

And just think of all the Elvis DNA samples at the palm on the auction winner's hand.

Hmmm....In a few years, the DNA from Elvis's hair could potentially provide us with another Elvis! Now if we could just clone his mama and the colonel...LOL.
