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?

Fopgive and forget. He was exonerated by a group of american citizens remember they had all the facts and evidence layed out in front of them and they did not see any evidence of guilt on his part. Innocent until proven guilty remember. Give the man the benefit of the doubt. Stop being jeoulous of his fame and fortune.

Hey – I admire Michael’s musical cannon. I am not too proud to admit to owning a Thriller jacket back in 1984. However, I’d be much more apt to re-purchase Thriller the album than any type of clothing “designed” by MJ. His fashion tastes leave little to be desired. Poor KITSON, they seem to get snookered by any so-called “celeb” hawking a clothing line. Can this be KITSON’s answer to their “well selling” line of denim “designed” by Posh Spice? MJ hasn’t had a hit in years – what makes us think he can score one with a fashion line?

OJ was exonerated too — and then bankrupted by civil court because the different rules and standards there allowed them to see more evidence. Don’t think for a second that ALL the evidence is ever alowed into a criminal case in the US.

As for Wacko Jacko’s clothes? Oh my God, NO. Not a chance. Ewwwwwwwww.

this could be interesting… it will definitely be a very different and creative collection… but honestly i don’t think that many ppl will want to buy clothes designed by a pedophile.

For sure!! He’s got a cool style I admire, so I’d definitely be checking out his clothes line. I believe it’ll be great. The only thing I’m concerned about is why he’s decided to do this, and I hope he’s not going the route of all the other music artists and actors who are making perfumes, having clothing lines, etc. It’s okay to dabble in different things, but I’m concerned that he stay true to himself and not follow a fad.
I’ll say what us fans REALLY would love is a new album!

Kate on

Yeah. Definately

TA on

FOR SURE!! he is the king
