[b]MICHAEL JACKSON DROPS BY GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TO COLLECT HIS OFFICIAL RECORD CERTIFICATES[/b] [gallery]82[/gallery] Guinness World Records London Head Quarters today welcomed the worlds biggest superstar through its doors for an honorary record presentation. Michael Jackson, a self confessed Guinness World Records fan since childhood, contacted Guinness World Records ahead of his visit to request that he could collect his multiple Guinness World Record certificates during his trip to London this week. With a staggering eight records mapping career highlights over the last quarter of a century, Michael Jackson is one of Guinness World Records longest standing record holders. The records span from Youngest vocalist to top the US singles chart, (aged 11, fronting The Jackson Five) and First vocalist to enter the US single chart at No.1 (“You Are Not Alone”) to Most weeks at the top of the US album charts (non-soundtrack) (37 weeks for Thriller); Most successful music video (Thriller sold over 1 million units); First entertainer to earn more than $100 million in a year to Highest paid entertainer of all time ($125 million in 1989 Forbes list). His ultimate and latest accolade was also presented to him: Most successful entertainer of all time. Michael arrived at Guinness World Records offices in North West London at 4pm this afternoon with his entourage – a fleet of black and silver people carriers. Wearing his signature black three quarter length dinner jacket and trousers with yellow piping, he arrived amidst an army of fans who had followed him from the hotel. He was greeted by Guinness World Records Editor, Craig Glenday, and given a whirlwind tour of the offices and shown weird and wonderful exhibits from the Guinness World Records Cabinet of Curioddities, including the worlds oldest vomit and tallest man evers shoes. Michael was then presented with his record certificates, a copy of the latest edition of the book and a special edition from the year he was born (1958). Evidently delighted with the accolades he holds in high esteem, Michael said: Ive always been a big fan of the book. Thank you so much its a great honour to visit the Guinness World Records offices.
Jackson’s midnight trip to Topshop lingerie It probably counts as normal in the world of Michael Jackson. Dinner with a billionaire, shopping in the midnight hour then a bizarre encounter between a Jesus lookalike and Superman which resulted in the police being called outside his hotel in the early hours. Jackson and his entourage are making a rare visit to London as he will appear tomorrow night at the World Music Awards in what will be his first performance in the UK in almost a decade. Jackson, 48, is staying at the Hempel Hotel in Bayswater, which he has taken over at the cost of £50,000 a night. He made a brief appearance on his hotel balcony to wave at the cheering crowds. Some wept openly at the sight of Jackson, wearing a sparkling black jacket and dark glasses.
