Michael Jackson printing his own money, takes over hotel
Nov 14, 2006, 12:10 GMT
Michael Jackson has taken over two floors of the Hempel Hotel in London at a cost of almost £75,000.
The eccentric singer is accompanied by a 25-strong entourage, including his three children, Paris, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II.
Before moving into the hotel, Jackson, 48, demanded all candles be removed from his children's rooms so not to put them at risk of fire.
Jackson, who is due to perform at the World Music Awards at Earls Court tomorrow night (15.11.06), also insisted that complimentary chocolates are not supplied because his family must not eat any junk food.
Instead, the singer has asked for freshly squeezed fruit juices and smoothies.
Jackson will receive the Diamond Award - which is presented to artists who have sold over 100 million albums during their careers - at the WMAs.
The former King of Pop will recreate his groundbreaking 'Thriller' video at the prestigious ceremony in his first live UK performance since he sang 'Earth Song' at the 1996 BRIT Awards.
