Jackson Fans Demand Refund

Disappointed MICHAEL JACKSON fans are demanding a refund after he failed to perform his hit THRILLER at the World Music Awards in London this week (15NOV06). Thousands paid up to $180 (GBP100) for tickets to the show, expecting the pop superstar to perform a duet of the track with R+B star CHRIS BROWN - singing live in London for the first time in nine years. But Jackson left Brown to sing Thriller alone, and only managed a few lines of WE ARE THE WORLD, with the backing of a gospel choir. Londoner ZAREEN IQBAL says, "It was a huge anti-climax. I just walked off." ABDO BINMADHI adds, "People were expecting something significant but he didn't perform at all. "When the lights went on I saw people's faces and they were like: 'Is that it?' "I should have just stayed at home and watched it on TV... We should definitely get a refund."

I agree with you, JJ - Jackson is a legend - IN HIS OWN MIND! Basically, you are saying that it is ok for Jacko to screw people over - that makes you just as sick of an individual as that idiot you admire. What did these "fans" do to deserve getting ripped off? The Beatles and Elvis NEVER did something this selfish! So please don't compare the "weird" one with these true legends!

All u idiots dont really know anything. There must have been something behind it all! Bloody hell. N plus his big comeback is not going to be at some crappy music award! think bout it guys! his big comeback will be HIS OWN COMEBACK! A tour! not a bloody 5 minute performance! Michael is known to have huge performances. look at his 1996 mtv music awards performance! almost half an hour of it was all his! and it was the only good part of it! seriously guys, get over urselves and start thinking. he knows what hes doing! His tour is what you should really look foward to, not some crappy awards that has people like beyonce and justin timberlake performing. They are good, no offence to ther fans, but come on! MJ is up in the Elvis and beatles level! and they arent ther anymore so hes up in the top level alone! hes the greatest on earth. what he has surpassed, no1 has. GO MJ ur a legend!

Evko - bite me! Like I'm going to take your ranting seriously? You have racked up a total of TWO comments on this forum - when you can speak intelligently, try a third! What does all the "gloved" ones awards have to do with him being selfish and ripping off his "fans"? Nothing! He's self-centered and a freak! There's a reason for the glove, you know, and it's NOT just because he likes the way it looks! Figure it out! I've known MJ since he was 6 yrs old - he was not raised to screw people over - and that includes his fans!

WACKO JACKO IS SUCH A LOSER! Everything he touches ends up disappointing and hurting people, often financially. Will he EVER learn to keep his promises, to pay his bills, to keep his hands off boys?! .

Deadrose53…. go knock your selfish hateful head on the wall. Michael Jackson is one of Guinness World Records longest standing record holders. The records span from Youngest vocalist to top the US singles chart, (aged 11, fronting The Jackson Five) and First vocalist to enter the US single chart at No.1 ("You Are Not Alone") to Most weeks at the top of the US album charts (non-soundtrack) (37 weeks for Thriller); Most successful music video (Thriller sold over 1 million units); First entertainer to earn more than $100 million in a year to Highest paid entertainer of all time ($125 million in 1989 Forbes list). His ultimate and latest accolade was also presented to him this time: Most successful entertainer of all time. That’s a staggering eight records mapping career highlights over the last quarter of a century!!!!That’s a legend you idiots whether you like it or not!!!Go drown yourselves in your own jealous poison!!!!
