Michael Jackson announced that his 10-night stint at London’s O2 arena in July will be the last time he puts on concerts in that city, the Times Online is reporting.

Dressed in a military-style black-sequined jacket, the reclusive entertainer made his announcement in front a screaming throng of fans at the arena.


“These will be my final show performances in London,” he said. “This is it.”

However, it was not clear whether he meant he’s done with London or with performing altogether.

Leave it to Michael Jackson to be able to announce his comeback and possible full retirement in a single sentence.

You know, Michael looked good for a homeless, underweight, destitute, 50-year-old hypochondriac with a Peter Pan complex and a plastic surgery fetish.  He looked real good.
