Taking a break from a shopping excursion on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive, Michael Jackson exclusively revealed to E! News that he’s “constantly” working on new songs, some of which he might debut on his in-the-works world tour.
The erstwhile King of Pop said he bought “many nice things” while shopping Friday with pal Christian Audiger, founder of Ed Hardy, for about 45 minutes at high-end boutique Dior, after which the two beat it over to Dolce & Gabana for another spree.
Jackson, who has recently taken up residence in Beverly Hills, said he had “all kinds of titles” in the works, but did not elaborate.
The Gloved One’s rep said Jackson is preparing “both a world tour and a series of specials and appearances”—his first live public performances since his 20th anniversary solo show at New York’s Madison Square Garden in 2001 and his last tour in 1996.
The former hitmaker has also sealed a deal with the Nederlander to stage a Broadway musical based on Thriller.
