    Default Johnny Depp to make Michael Jackson musical from perspective of his glove

    I'd have put this in the 'chuckle' thread, but it's too good to be hidden away like that.

    The full title? For the Love of Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson, as Told by His Glove. Opening January 25th in Los Angeles, the show will “look into the strange forces that shaped Michael and the scandals that bedevilled his reputation.” Those forces apparently include the singer’s favourite glove, which as Nitzberg writes it, is an alien being questing for the blood of youths. That’s one way to put a spin on Jackson’s nonce inclinations.

    It gets crazier, as the play’s real-life actors will perform alongside life-size puppets representing a number of figures from Jackson’s life. The Jackson 5, Donny Osmond, Emmanuel Lewis, Corey Feldman, and even Bubbles the Chimp will all be represented in felt.

    Nitzberg told Page Six that the idea actually manifested 17 years ago while he was in meetings with “a major TV network” for a true Jackson biopic. “…The question came up [about] how to deal with the child-abuse allegations,” Nitzberg recalled. “I said, how’s this? Everything MJ has been accused of has actually been caused by his glove, which is actually an alien from outer space [and] feeds on virgin boy blood. They laughed and said, ‘Can you do the normal version?’”

    I'm assuming it's 'fake news', but I honestly have no idea.

    Huh. That's pretty weird. Probably the weirdest music news since this?
