Michael Jackson arrives in Japan to party with fans

The King of Pop Michael Jackson was rushed through Narita Airport on Sunday in Tokyo – where he will host an exclusive party for his fans. The event has a $3,500 ticket price which will grant fans 30 seconds to one minute of face time with the music icon.

Jackson, who was decked out in a black leather jacket and sporting his dark shades, was escorted through a crowd of screaming fans – some holding signs declaring their love for the singer and welcoming him to the country.
The singer is also expected to be the judge of an art contest for his fans with three entries winning a brunch and photo opportunity with Jackson. The contest is meant to give fans who can’t afford the $3,500 party ticket price a chance to meet the iconic singer. It is not known if Jackson will be performing at the party or the brunch.

Since his acquittal in the U.S., Jackson, who is 48, has lived abroad with homes in Bahrain, France, and Ireland.

The exclusive party is scheduled to happen on Thursday, and the art contest will be held on Friday. Organizers have not said how much the singer would be paid for the two events.
