Michael Jackson makes bid to rule the world

Having saved the survivors of both the September 11th 2001 attacks and the poor response to the flooding following Hurricane Katrina, Michael Jackson is now turning his attention to the rest of us. He intends to take over the world with edgy street sounds.

How do we know? Erm... the Uncle of someone who once worked Eminem says so:

According to the uncle of Ron "Neff U" Feemster, former producer with Eminem, 50 Cent, and Ne-Yo, Jacko has brought in some production big-hitters for the proposed album.

Feemster's uncle, Charles "Big Chuck" Stanton, told the Los Angeles Times that he'd been to the embattled star's new home to discuss the project and met "a musically focused and creatively fired-up Jackson."

Stanton said he is "ready to take over the world. He's got some hot records. Will.I.Am did one, Teddy Riley [did one]. We're giving Michael a lot of edgy street records. He's putting melodies to some hard party records."

We're not even entirely sure what this means, apart from Michael giving up on the mass-market. It's not clear who exactly is going to release all this streety-edgeness.
