April Fool? It seems not …

It may be approaching the two-year anniversary of his death from cardiac arrest in Los Angeles, but as of this weekend there will be a corner of suburban south-west London that is forever Michael Jackson. On Saturday, to a chorus of outrage from supporters and disquiet even from Jackson loyalists, a six-foot high golden statue of the King of Pop will be unveiled at Fulham football club, creating an incongruous permanent shrine to a pop culture icon of the 80s and 90s.

The statue is at the behest of the Fulham chairman and owner Mohamed Al Fayed, a close friend of the singer. “Michael Jackson was truly a legend, a term used too often in this modern world,” Fayed told Fulham’s website, when news emerged of the unveiling. “I hope that Fulham fans will appreciate seeing the finest performer in the world in and among them.”
