On his 52nd Birthday, Michael Jackson has been sighted singing and dancing all around the world.

Today is Michael Jackson’s 52nd birthday and he has been spotted around the world, dressed in his “Smooth Criminal” costume.  He has been seen in Ireland, South Africa, Dubai, Shanghai, Manila, Rome, Barcelona, London, Moscow, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires, Sydney, Miami, New York and Los Angeles.  Michael appears on the street, sings and dances for about thirty seconds then he disappears.

Is he alive, is he a ghost?  There’s rampant speculation all over the internet.

“It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen,” said Roger Farley of London. “He appeared on the street, sang a few short lines of the song, spun around and was gone… It was him. It definitely was him.”

Maria Lenine of Sao Paolo told reporters that she wept for hours after seeing Michael on her street.  “I can’t believe he’s alive.  But, I saw him with my own eyes.  It’s a miracle!”

Michael Jackson reportedly died on June 25, 2009 but there have been numerous Michael sightings since that time.  Recently, some people in Ireland have claimed to have seen Michael Jackson living there.  One woman, Margaret Maloney of Galway, said that she has Michael seven times in the last six months.

It makes some sense. Michael always loved Ireland.  He would often escape there to get away from the media madness elsewhere.  Jackson told reporters: “Ireland has inspired me to make a great album. I have never given up on making music.”  Michael often stayed at the Grouse Lodge or he would relax in County Wicklow.  Michael often said he wanted to move to Ireland permanently, and that he even spent time house-hunting in County Cork.

Are the Irish hiding Michael?   Are there leprechauns helping keep his hiding place a secret?

Others have claimed Michael is living in the South of France, while many have said he they have seen him in a village on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa.

WWN can not yet confirm any of those reports and rumors, but we have had numerous emails from people in Galway, backing up the claim of Margaret Maloney.   “He lives here. It’s a fact. That’s all I’m going to say,” said Aiden Killeen of Galway.

Michael Jackson lives!

Happy Birthday, Michael!

Here’s the King of Pop as the Smooth Criminal:

Could this be his message to the world?
