Jackson fights Boyle, Swift from beyond

Michael Jackson’s ghost, although happy for finally having a real reason to be white, must be kind of bummed about the news that “Michael,” the first CD of new Jackson material released since his death, didn’t open at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Michael Jackson’s ghost, although happy for finally having a real reason to be white, must be kind of bummed about the news that “Michael,” the first CD of new Jackson material released since his death, didn’t open at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

It debuted at No. 3 — behind Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” in first place, with Susan Boyle’s “The Gift” at No. 2. However, “Michael” did do well in Europe — hitting the No. 1 slot in Germany, Italy, Austria, Sweden and the Netherlands.

So it just goes to show that there truly are stranger things than Michael Jackson in the world — like the fact that a dowdy, overweight British recluse who became an Internet sensation after going on a tawdry reality TV show can sell more albums than the King of Pop. Who would have thought?
