The sad, unexpected and untimely death of Michael Jackson has left a void at the top of the pop tree, which has created a rush of applicants for the position of 'King Of Pop.'
Early frontrunners include Adam Lambert, Justin Timberlake and citing equal opportunities, Miley Cyrus.
Miley was quoted in many unreliable down market publications as saying, 'Until Madonna forgets to pack her anti-malaria mosquito tent on one of her many trips to Malawi collecting children, the chances of the 'Queen of Pop' job coming up are slim to none.'
Not gay Adam has been quoted in the same publications as saying, 'Although I may not have the talent, presence, dancing skills, voice, and fan base I could easily equal Michael in being publicly ridiculed and the relentless negative press aspect of the job.
Justin said 'sha-moe!' Grabbed his crotch, spun around and moonwalked to McDonald's for a free big mac.
Simon Cowell and Sir Phillip Green are considering doing an X factor style TV programme to let the public decide who the 'King of Pop' will be, to kick-start their 'entertainment company bigger than Disney' project, with all profits going to their 'entertainment company bigger than Disney' project.
Bets are off on which Jackson sibling will rush to profit from the singers death in a Puff Daddy style cover version of a sting song, with this morning, Latoya Jackson writing, recording and releasing 'I love my brother deeply even though he hates me, and we haven't spoke for years EP.' which features seven cover versions of Puff Daddy's 'missing you' and one of Elton Johns 'candle in the wind.'
