Jackson Statue Erected Outside Soccer Stadium

4/3/2011 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

English Premier League soccer and Michael Jackson are synonymous with each other (just go with it) so it should come as no surprise that a statute in his honor was unveiled outside a stadium in London today.

Turns out the owner of the Fulham FC, Mohamed Al Fayed, was close friends with Jackson. He had originally planned to put the statue outside of Harrods in London, but he sold the store last year.

So now it is displayed outside of a soccer stadium in London. Perfect match.

You bunch of jerks leaving all those nasty comments. Why don't you spend your time doing something meaningful? You will be forgotten the day you leave this earth. Unlike Mr Jackson who made record-breaking contributions to charities all over the world. Spend your time learning the facts about his man's life before you start repeating media-generated lies. I'm so sick of this nonsense!!

London knows they're dead ass wrong for that statue! Thanks for the laugh London. And it's sad because that statue of him is not even the real Micheal Jackson. The real Micheal Jackson was the one who had the big afro (remember the time?) and that big wide nose. The real Michael Jackson died a very long time ago.

What I Think    

Too bad they didn't run a gas line so that flames could be seen leaping from the top of his head. LOL.

jamine, he danced THAT WAS IT. Amazing is like a doctor or Mother Teresa. You are pathetic if that's what you think is amazing.

That was it NOT. Contributing more than 300 Dollars and 20% of a highly profitable legacy to charity might at least correspond a little bit with what you'd call amazing.

I think it is great that Al Fayed is honoring his friend with the statue. Even though whomever created it could have done a little better job of it, it is great to see him being honored. And also to see the other statues and memorials that have been going up around the world.
