Michael Jackson Turns Clothing Designer!

PER/ Fame

Michael Jackson hasn’t had a hit in a while, but instead of working on his next platinum album, he’s turning his eye towards fashion! The King of Pop has teamed up with Ed Hardy designer — and pal — Christian Audigier to launch a new line this fall. Audigier tells PEOPLE of the collaboration, “It’s the merging of the King of Pop with the king of fashion. Something explosive is going to happen.” As for Kitson owner Fraser Ross, who has already committed to carrying the line exclusively at launch, he tells PEOPLE that he has faith in the new line because “Michael Jackson is an international pop icon who has had a huge following throughout his career. I think people will think it’s hip to wear his line. Through all his ups and downs people still love him. He still has a huge fan base.” Tell us: Will you wear Michael Jackson’s new clothing line?

OMG….Why? You know, Mike is really…REALLY weird and I am sorry but I don’t think after he left the country (guiltily) and fell from the grace of the Earth, why in the world should we be forced with a decision to think of Wacko as a designer? Ugh.

All depends on the styles and the cost. No problem in supporting Michael Jackson.

If he has his trade mark white sequence glove and tight leather pants I would totally buy them and so would my husband! We love Micheal Jackson, he is our idol and we wish he would come back. He has the #1 selling album of all time so therefor the rest of you can beat it if you don’t agree that all of his songs are great. You know you dance to them when you hear them and without his clothes in all of those videos they would have been nothing.

Yeah Yolanda! You n yo husband know whats kickin! You must be one PYT!
