I’M urging all Jacko fans to get on t’internet, or go to a record shop and buy his Off The Wall album.
It would be a fitting tribute for the King of Pop to top the charts tomorrow and I am calling for Bizarre readers’ help.
Given that the media has been reporting that Jackson records have been flying off the shelves for the last 24 hours, this is surely one of the most brazen attempts to take responsibility for something that was happening anyway since Laser 558 ran its "wear something blue to show your support us" campaign.

Chart insiders tell me he is in with a great shout of a stunning chart double this weekend – and it’s our job to ensure he has as many songs as possible in the top ten singles and album charts.
Why, exactly, is it "our job"? Is buying stuff meant to somehow be a tribute?
Retailer HMV also revealed that fans had been flooding their High Street stores to stock up on CDs.
A spokesman said: “We estimate there has been a twenty-fold increase in demand for his recordings.”
A spokesman? A spokesman? Are you failing to give Gennaro his full credit, young Gordon?
