Michael Jackson says he wants to live in Britain
LONDON (AFP) - US pop icon Michael Jackson has told a newspaper here that he wants to live in Britain because he loves the country.
Speaking to the tabloid Daily Mirror in an interview published Thursday, Jackson also said he was working on a new album, his first since "Invincible" in 2001.
"I'm here in London on business for a couple of days. I love it here," said the singer, speaking as he visited the offices of the luxury department store, Harrods, where he was due to meet the owner, his good friend Mohamed Al Fayed.
"I'm looking for a place to live. I've always liked the UK and I just love the fans here," said Jackson, 47, who was photographed by the tabloid with a big grin on his face behind a pair of dark sun-glasses.
The Daily Mirror said Jackson would be looking at luxury properties in and around the British capital.
He also plans to look in Scotland and Ireland in a bid to re-create the funfair style ranch he built in California, it said.
Asked about his health, the singer told the tabloid: "I'm fine -- very well thanks. I'm feeling good."
In March, Jackson's spokeswoman denied a report in another British newspaper that the pop singer was looking for a new home in Britain.
