Creepy Michael Jackson dresses as a woman
While a huge floppy sunhat may have kept Michael Jackson's face hidden, three inch pointed heels, skinny fit women's jeans and fluorescent orange handbag did little to aid his bid for anonymity.
The 48-year-old singer made a typically flamboyant appearance in St Tropez, during his latest trip abroad.
Jackson, who was acquitted on child molestation charges last year, is currently holidaying on the French Riviera, accompanied by his three young children.
The star is understood to be in the South of France as a guest of his friend and benefactor, Prince Alwaleed - a nephew of Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd - on his private yacht, Kingdom 5KR.
After tottering through the backstreets of the exclusive coastal village, a weary-looking Jackson stopped off roadside for a little rest, and to shelter from the 28 degree heat.
Here, accompanied by the girl believed to be his 8-year-old daughter Paris, he petted an aide's dog and fiddled with his bright blue hat.
It is the first time that one of Jackson's children has been spotted out in public without a veil.
But in keeping with Jackson's love of the eccentric, Paris - full name Paris Michael Katherine Jackson - was dressed almost identically to her famous father.
Perhaps wisely, however, the youngster shunned the impracticability of heels, opting instead for far more comfortable flat-soled trainers.
