    First Guy Ritchie turns from Kabbalah and divorces Madonna, now Jackson turns from Jehovah's Witness and embraces Islam. Wild whacky stuff. I wonder if Katie Holmes will make another escape attempt from Xenu.

    Nothing like celebrities and religion! I hope Michael finds some peace in this move. He really comes across like a tortured soul to me.

    Yeah, you're confusing Michael Jackson with Will Smith. Easy to do. Smith doesn't mind getting jiggy with Xenu, but he apparently keeps his options wide open. Like his marriage.

    Either that or joining some other celebrities with Kabbalah.

    Give MJ some time... he can still convert. He can still fly into the volcano of Xenu, with a pit stop in Salt Lake City.

    Well, the man likes to transform. From black man to white woman, from Christian to Muslim, anything to get away from himself. He would be the most tragic millionaire who ever existed, if it wasn't for Howard Hughes...

    Could this be to do with a lawsuit filed against him by a Sheik in the UK?

    Brother Jermaine has been a Muslim since he too converted in 1989.

    Why is this even news? Seriously. Is it because he's a former megastar? Because of the religion he's chosen? A mix of the two?

    that and to distract people from the continuing financial problems.

    Also my first thought, but if so what's he trying to achieve? The Sheikh will still want his millions back.

    Yeah, it won't help him in any way.

    But then again he seems insane to me, so perhaps he thought it would save a few million!

    When is this guy just going to disappear already? He should take a cue from Axk Rose and disappear for the next 14 years to go make an album.

    Yikes. Did I say millionaire? I meant billionaire. MJ used to be one.

    Is Amy even a millionaire anymore? I wouldn't bet on it. She entered the UK music millionaire list in April, but I think she's been snorting and injecting at a higher rate than the money keeps coming in.

    From the latest pictures and stories it seems she's recently been pulling herself together. Over the summer she performed at many festivals, always putting on a good show, and even the press photographers are commenting on how much better behaved she now is in public.

    She's got a long way to go yet, but I think she's finally kicked one or two habits.

    I think we are forgetting Bestival.

    As far as MJ is concerned I don't care what religion he chooses to follow.

    Because the Matrix has you, and the Architect felt reading this thread would prove the world was demonstrably imperfect. :D

    If he ever claimed being a JW, it was only by the name of it. His life certainly is/was not anything like what would be required to remain an active Jehovah's Witness.
