Footballer Rio Ferdinand
Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he has arranged an interview with 50-year-old popstar Michael Jackson.
The England and Manchester United footballer was called by Jackson and invited to one of his summer concerts at London’s O2.
Ferdinand recently launched a digital lifestyle magazine called No.5. Rapper 50 Cent appeared in the first issue.
“I was shaking when I got off the phone. It was a real surprise,” the footballer told the BBC.
“I’m hoping to interview him for a later edition and he’s invited me to one of his concerts to come backstage and speak to him about it.
“The first album I ever owned was [Jackson’s] Bad, so that says it all. I got the album when I was living on the Friary estate in Peckham – who’d have thought that one day I might be meeting the guy?”
A meeting of minds…
I actually like Rio so congratulations.
Now let me go and check out his new online venture.
