Jacko is 'normal'
Guess what, everybody? Michael Jackson is normal! So sayeth the powers that be at Ebony magazine, which put him on the cover of their upcoming December issue to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Thriller. “He’s 49. He’s a grown-up,” Harriette Cole, creative director of the magazine, told the Today show, according to Reuters. “If you learn from your challenges, then you become stronger. He certainly seemed like that. Honestly ... he was normal.” Jackson could use the good press. Word is he still owes more than $23-million on his Neverland ranch property, and he could lose the home sometime soon.
