Michael Jackson Looking for Work in UAE

Tuesday, January 17, 2006

He's been living there for months. Now, it looks like Michael Jackson is ready to start working in the United Arab Emirates.

The pop star is said to be looking into a position as a consultant with a company in Bahrain. The firm – AAJ Holdings – says it wants to hire Jackson to give advice on how to set up entertainment businesses.

The company plans to set up theme parks and music academies in the Middle East. And apparently officials feel a pop star who used to live at an estate that actually includes an amusement park would be a good fit for their company.

Since being acquitted on child molestation charges, Jackson has been living in Bahrain and has indicated that he plans to stay there.
