Michael Jackson and the "Potential Flesh-Eating Infection"

Posted by andreaitis on February 13, 2009

I know it sounds like I’m making this one up, but I’m not.    It’s being reported by Fox.  Which is reporting it based on reporting from The Sun.

Report: Michael Jackson Has Potential Flesh-Eating Infection

Now, what I wonder is this:  Did he just get this potential flesh-eating infection?  Because I’m thinking it could explain the morphing and melting of his face.   Let’s take a look at the facialization:

I can’t get over it, not with the Oscars coming up.  And the Grammys, because wouldn’t Mickey “The Wrestler” Rourke show up at the Grammys?  I wonder if he carries his Golden Globe around with him.  That would be the Mickey Rourke I know and….well, there’s the problem.  I’m not sure how I feel about Mickey Rourke these days, except fascinated by his face.  His whole look, actually.

At least he has a smart manager:

Model Sues Google Over Snarky Blogger Remarks

Canadian model Liskula Cohen has sued Google for a number of snarky remarks that were made by a blogger using the company’s Blogger service. The NY Daily News reports that the former Vogue cover girl has been called ‘skanky’ and ‘an old hag’ by an anonymous blogger on a website called Skanks in NYC (could be deemed NSFW).

The defamation suit, filed in Manhattan, seeks a court order compelling Google and its Blogger service to identify the anonymous blogger. Google declined to discuss any specifics, only responding to the claim by saying they sympathize with victims of cyberbullying but “take great care to respect privacy concerns and will only provide information about a user in response to a subpoena or other court order”, so we’ll leave you with a quote from Cohen instead:

“I’m tall, I’m blond, I’ve been modeling for many years, and people get jealous,” she said. “If I had to deal with everyone who is jealous, I wouldn’t have time to do anything else.”

Jay Mohr Cox.  I think he’s just showing off.  Hrmph.

The star of “Gary Unmarried,” a sitcom about troublemaking man suffering through a dysfunctional divorce, is honoring his blissful real-life marriage by adding his wife’s surname to his own.

Jay Mohr filed a petition last week to legally add his wife’s last name — Cox — to his, according to E! Online.

Mohr? Cox?

Before you start worrying whether the Jerry Maguire star’s new name won’t be safe for TV, he says he’s changing his handle to Jay Cox Mohr, according to E!

Mohr married actress Nikki Cox on Dec. 29, 2006.

Madonna and A-Rod Head to Mexico City

Coincidence?

Madonna and Alex Rodriguez were both spotted in Mexico City last weekend.

The two have not confirmed their romance. But they reportedly had their public “coming out” Nov. 26, when, according to E, the Yankees third baseman handed Madonna a water bottle during her Miami concert.

They also apparently met up on Thanksgiving, after Rodriguez fulfilled his family obligations.

When asked what he thought about being in the capital city the same time as his rumored paramour, the baseball star would only say it was “very good,” the Associated Press reports.
