There's a headline I didn't expect to be writing!
Well, attention grabbing headlines apart, it seems that Adam Ant (ex pop star from the 80's) allegedly swore at Michael Jackson twice over the phone because he thought that it was one of his friends pretending to be Jackson.
However, when Jackson's record producer Quincy Jones called Adam Ant (real name Stuart Goddard) that he realised that in fact Jackson had called him.
"We spoke on the phone a bit. The first time he called me I thought it was one of my bandmates taking the piss.
I told him to fuck off twice.
It was only when Quincy Jones rang me up later that I realised it really was Michael!
He eventually invited me to his place near LA for the day. He was just a very charming and gracious host, but very shy.
He showed me around his animals - there was no monkey at the time - and we watched the movie White Heat in his private cinema. That was before it went all crazy for him..."
Ant has subsequently had mental issues of his own.
Quite why this story is now only surfacing, some 23 years or so after the alleged event, I have no idea.
I can only assume that someone needs some publicity for a book, or career relaunch.
