Michael Jackson has spoken for the first time since his child sex abuse trial and claims he is "good."
The eccentric star, who was acquitted of all charges against him, admitted the trial was "the hardest thing I have ever done in my life" but insists he is now well after the traumatic experience.
Jackson, who has been residing in Bahrain with his three children since the court case finished, claims he now plans to stay in the Arab state to continue "resting and recovering."
The 'Billie Jean' singer also confirmed he is working on a charity record to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and claims the project is moving "full speed ahead."
Jackson is rumoured to be lining up a galaxy of stars for the project. Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, R Kelly and James Brown are among the names being touted to perform on the single 'From The Bottom Of My Heart'.
Jackson is set to return to the US to record the single and is hoping to recruit even more stars for the project.
His spokeswoman Raymone Bain said: "Mr. Jackson is continuing to reach out to artists who would like to work with him on this project, which he humbly hopes will make a tremendous difference to all individuals who have been affected by this tragedy."
