Michael Jackson is crawling out of the hole he dug in the sands of Bahrain to perform his signature song "Thriller" later this month at the World Music Awards in London, his first major public appearance since being acquitted of chilld molestation charges in June 2005. Jackson will also receive a Diamond Award, which goes to artists who sell more than 100 million records worldwide and beat more than one child molestation rap. (Just kidding about the molestation thing, though Jackson is the first singer in pop history to do both.) Jackson reportedly is moving to Europe in order to mount a career comeback, and a new album is supposed to be released in 2007. Pity he already used the title Bad.
