Michael Jackson on Guiness

Guinness World Records London Head Quarters today welcomed the world’s biggest superstar through its doors for an honorary record presentation. Michael Jackson, a self confessed Guinness World Records fan since childhood, contacted Guinness World Records ahead of his visit to request that he could collect his multiple Guinness World Record certificates during his trip to London this week.

With a staggering eight records mapping career highlights over the last quarter of a century, Michael Jackson is one of Guinness World Records longest standing record holders. The records span from Youngest vocalist to top the US singles chart, (aged 11, fronting The Jackson Five) and First vocalist to enter the US single chart at No.1 ("You Are Not Alone") to Most weeks at the top of the US album charts (non-soundtrack) (37 weeks for Thriller); Most successful music video (Thriller sold over 1 million units); First entertainer to earn more than $100 million in a year to Highest paid entertainer of all time ($125 million in 1989 Forbes list). His ultimate and latest accolade was also presented to him: Most successful entertainer of all time.

Michael arrived at Guinness World Records offices in North West London at 4pm this afternoon with his entourage - a fleet of black and silver people carriers. Wearing his signature black three quarter length dinner jacket and trousers with yellow piping, he arrived amidst an army of fans who had followed him from the hotel.

He was greeted by Guinness World Records Editor, Craig Glenday, and given a whirlwind tour of the offices and shown weird and wonderful exhibits from the ‘Guinness World Records Cabinet of Curioddities’, including the world’s oldest vomit and tallest man ever’s shoes. Michael was then presented with his record certificates, a copy of the latest edition of the book and a special edition from the year he was born (1958). Evidently delighted with the accolades he holds in high esteem, Michael said: “I’ve always been a big fan of the book. Thank you so much – it’s a great honour to visit the Guinness World Records offices.”

Michael Jackson is in London for his first UK performance in nine years. He is due to be presented with a Diamond Award at the World Music Awards in Earls Court on Wednesday evening. He will also sing tracks from his Thriller album, bringing it back to life after 25 years. Guinness World Records Editor, Craig Glenday, will also be reuniting with the star on Wednesday evening to present him with his eighth Guinness World Record.

Guinness World Records Editor Craig Glenday said: “We always expect the unexpected here at Guinness World Records. From the world’s tallest man, woman with the longest fingernails and most pierced woman, we’re used to all walks of life stopping by the office, but we haven’t been this excited since we met the Queen last year. Michael is one of the greatest superstars of all time and his unwavering success has kept him at the very top of the record breaking charts throughout his career. We’re absolutely delighted that Michael holds Guinness World Records in such high regard and honoured that he’s taken time out of his busy schedule to stop by and collect them in person.”

Re: Michael Jackson on Guiness

MJ might creep me out, but there is no denying that even if never does any song again will still be the greatest entertainer in recorded history. even he will never again reach those heights.

Re: Michael Jackson on Guiness

What's so impressive his breakthrough came at the age of 11 and topping the US Charts more than once with the Jackson 5. As well he could compete in the 70's. That's what impresses me most of M. Jackson.

Yeah, Michael may look other-worldly, but my goodness, what a talented 'other-worldly' persona he is.

That's what your nails look like after having to claw your way back to success.
Having received such prestigious accolades from Guinness is certainly a start.

Michael doesn't even leave the house on Halloween anymore because he's tired of people asking him, "So.......what the hell are you supposed to be?"
