Sir Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson apparently thinks he's an 800-year-old British knight.
The eccentric singer reportedly checked into London's Dorchester Hotel as Sir William Marshal - one of the country's most legendary knights from hundreds of years ago.A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: 'Michael likes to use various pseudonyms when he books into hotels. William Marshal appealed to him because he's such a huge fan of British aristocracy. 'He picked the name himself partly as a tribute and partly to divert attention from himself. He thinks that Lords and Ladies stay at the Dorchester all the time.' Meanwhile, the troubled singer was reportedly turned away from a star-studded bash at a London restaurant after he turned up too late. The star - who is in the UK to record a Hurricane Katrina charity single - was told he couldn't enter the Hard Rock Cafe bash because it was too full when he showed up shortly after 11.15pm. A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: 'When he was told the party was a no-go, he didn't kick up a fuss, he just quietly left.' Jackson's publicist added: 'Michael was disappointed he could not attend the party as he likes Hard Rock Cafes. He's like to come down to the restaurant before he leaves the UK.'
