A recent GQ article spoofing Michael Jackson has the singer demanding the magazine apologize and pull the issue from circulation
The King of Pop is mad. Michael Jackson is "furious" over a series of photos featuring his impersonator in the GQ magazine's May issue.
The photos accompany an article titled "Where's Michael?" which documents writer Devin Friedman's quest to find Jackson in Bahrain, the Middle Eastern country where he lives.
One of the photos shows a Jackson look-alike sits in a darkened movie theater amid a row of children. Meanwhile, another photo shows him standing in the desert draped in a black cloak and headscarf, with his trademark glittery white glove.
Saying it was responding to "numerous inquiries," Michael has on Friday through representative Raymone K. Bain, said "(He) is furious that his image has been used in such a misleading way, and is demanding an apology from the editors of GQ, and its publisher, Conde Nast. Mr. Jackson is also demanding that the magazines be pulled from newsstands."
