The Hulk trains Michael Jackson ahead of London concerts

June 19, 2009

Michael Jackson will need to be supremely fit to perform a series of 50 shows in London starting next month. The dates are fast approaching. Who better to get the so-called Kinmichael-jacksong of Pop into royal shape than bodybuilder and actor Lou Ferrigno, who was known for having fast-growing muscles playing The Incredible Hulk on television in decades past.

Ferrigno’s wife, Carla, on Thursday told Reuters that her husband has been helping Jackson train in advance of the shows.

“He’s known Michael 15 years,” Carla Ferrigno said. “He used to train him a long time ago and now he’s doing it again.”

lou-ferrigno-jason-segelBut Carla Ferrigno would not give details on the workout regimens. A spokesman for Jackson did not return a call.

 The only question is, will the Ferrigno workouts allow Michael Jackson to mimic the Hulk’s ability to turn into a man of brawn within seconds of getting angry? That would be a show ranking right up there with the headlock Ferrigno put on actor Jason Segel in this year’s movie “I Love You, Man.”


I don’t belive a word of this. If you believe that Michael Jackson will take the stage at O2 in London for even one single concert, then you blieve in fairies, but I don’t.There’s not one shred of evidence that these shows are going forward despite all the statements to the contrary. I swear, a whole lot of people are going to be very disappointed and pissed off if their tickets are non-refundable (which most ticket-holders will find to be the case).50 Shows? Give me a break. In one town?Wasn’t it Lincoln who said that you can fool most of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people most of the time?The bigger the lie, the more they will believe it.I’m afraid a whole lot of people believed in the O2 shows, but I’m predicting that Michael will fail to deliver.Sorry suckers – take my advice, don’t book your flights just yet.Just wait – soon they will announce that the entire show has been “postponed” because for one reason or another (e.g., doctor’s note) Michael just isn’t up to it.Michael screws everyone in his path – why should he care about screwing fans as well? He doesn’t.Go figure.

Don’t make Michael angry…you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!I wonder if Michael will show up to a work out wearing a tank top and pajama pants?

Michael Jackson is not the so called “king of pop”, He is the KING OF POP hands down nobody has done what he has done yet. Respect him and stop Haiting on the King.

Wow, your very negative towards this person. Has he screwed you over or one of your cousins? You should really self reflect on why you have such a negative, biased approach towards Mr Jackson. i thought journalism was based on fact, not innuendo and speculation.You were probably one of the writers who said the show was not going to happen, that he would be found guilty, that he would lose Never land and the Beatles catalog. All of those predictions by you “talented” journalist were wrong. It seams like when it comes to Mr Jackson, you should have a wait and see approach before you systematically trash anything that he does,that way your writing will not be full of fallacies and you won’t have to eat crow again.If I were you, I would be full off of crow and would probably want to try something that was a little more satisfying.When you attack, you really just look like a hater and that is how most people view you.You don’t want to be looked at as a hater because they do not get the ladies and they are miserable within their own skin, ask Rush Limbaugh. No disrespect towards anyone, just some real talk minus empty rhetoric.

Say what you want about Michael Jackson, but he’s not a guy with a history of backing out of concerts. That’s not to say it hasn’t happened before, but on the whole he’s been an artist who takes his commitment to his fans seriously and wants to deliver a good performance.And remember, this isn’t a guy who sits on a bar stool and sings ballads — every time he performs it’s the equivalent of running a marathon. So yeah, he should be scared about being able to do 50 concerts, but I’m confident he’ll pull through.

Michael Jackson and I close to the same age. I remember when he first came out when I was eight years old and in the 3rd grade. I would stand up to his and his brothers’ music as if it was the National Anthem. I will always be a fan.T. Corbett,MD


Who is comparable to MJ in the pop history? We’re yet to get one,but I guess not soon.Whats wrong with him doing physical preparations? After all doing what he is about to do at his age(51yrs)ain’t a joke.He has no history of disappointing his fans,then why think of it now? He’s gonna stage a grate performance as usual.Lets wait and see.

Hello every1!I just wanted to say that every1 in the U.k is very fortunate, & I’m just anxiously waiting for him to make a concert again in the U.S, I love him so much, I wish hed know there’s many people here who still support him 100% & would love him to book one here aswell!However about the nasty & pessamisticly RUDE comments, I really do think people who aren’t supportive of him should take their own personal anger elsewhere.He’s the most amazing performer & no1 can or will take that away from such a dedicated person.I wish I had enough money to go to the U.K & get Tickets but I don’t, but for the people who think he’s going to not go through w/these concerts.. I’m just going to let u know,The second he makes a concert around Florida, I will 1 of the 1st getting her ticket!!Michael Jackson Foreverr!! <3

Hello EveryoneI don’t know why some people always want to trash on Michael Jackson. I mean if you don’t like his music well don’t listen to it, nor attack the musician. Let’s all be civilized and show some tolerance towards other people’s preferences and lifestyles. I personally loved his music, it always soothes me, but not really care about his personal life, that’s whay is PERSONAL….Anyway, try not to be too prompt on judging others, especially if we don’t know them personally nor aware of the REAL facts…I would hate to be treated like Michael Jackson gets treated just too many times….HAVE A NICE DAY *_*

So, so sad…this day. First, Farrah and now Michael. At least now they can rest in peace. Farrah’s fight is over and Michael goes to his Neverland. I never believed the pedophile stories about Michael, always thought it was a way of getting money out of him. I hope his music will out weigh the nay sayers and we can rememeber him for “We Are the World, Black & White, and Man in the Mirror.” Thriller was great entertainment but his other works were from the heart. He will be missed.

There seems to be a huge amount of surprise from some people that MJ’s body couldn’t cope with new exercise regimes, especially from JonMaxX.He was almost 51 years old, has been very frail for a long time, and has suffered several bouts of ‘illness’ over recent years. I’d hate to offend anyone by the way I say this but it is true that it’s hardly a surprise.

This news is soo heart breaking. I think that Micheal Jackson’s show which was suppose to be stage in London should still go on. The show should be performed by his most love,true, sincere and influenced musicians as well as his siblings perhaps so that Fan can live his legacy on stage all over again. It might not be the same with him not around but the mind can imagine a lot of things with words of music. This will be the most important tribute musician can give to him as it was his wish to perform for his funs, it was the come back of the King of Pop. But death took him unexpectedly, Performing his music will be the greatest, outmost respect anyone can give to him. Fullfilling his desire to perform on stage after many years. Anyone who can make this happen should PLEASE collaborate this last tribute. I will always remember him. MAX LOVE

It saddens me that the news is full of rehashes of all the scandal and gossip about Michael Jackson. The surgery, bizarre behaviour, etc.etc.etc ad nausea.Just take a moment to stop and think of his life.From a very young age, he was controlled by first his dominant father, then by music moguls and now, it seems, by his personal physicians.His life was never his own.It is no wonder that he was compelled to change his appearance because it was the only thing that truly belonged to him alone.Much like an anorexic or self harmer.It saddens me to think how this boy was exploited right into manhood.Let him be at peace at last.

I would just like to remind all those who criticize Michael Jackson and his life that he was one of the first artists to make significant contributions to social causes as well as a plentitude of financial contributions to various charities and he did this 20 years ago before it became trendy or a public relations requirement. He did it out of the unending generosity of his heart. I respectfully wish that he truly rests in peace away from the clutches of the evil media.
