Michael Jackson, King of Space?

His Popness wants to moonwalk -- on the moon! President Bush jealous of Bono's shades? Plus: Sarah Jessica Parker throws a Britney fit!

Topics: Celebrity, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears,

One small step for Michael Jackson, one giant leap for freakypopstarkind?

Not content simply to moonwalk, Jacko apparently wants to walk on the moon.

According to Peoplenews.com, Jackson’s been training with Edgar Mitchell, the Apollo 14 astronaut who was the sixth man to step across the lunar landscape, and his spoon-bendin’ good buddy Uri Geller in order to achieve his goal of traveling into space and dancin’ around on the surface of the moon.

Come to think of it, that crotch-grabbing move would look really cool in zero gravity.

Nash gay? Sorry, wrong number

Round two

If you thought Danny Bonaduce looked tough working over Barry Williams in the “Celebrity Boxing” ring the other night, you should have seen him off-camera.

The former “Partridge Family” star apparently mixed it up backstage with Amy Fisher’s former beau Joey Buttafuocco, who was standing by as an alternate fighter, after his match.

Buttafuocco is thought to have made some sort of crack to Bonaduce, who reportedly barked, “You’re not so tough when your girlfriend isn’t shooting anyone, you bitch.”

And Bonaduce wasn’t backing off during a subsequent interview with “Access Hollywood.”

“Buttafuoco is out of his mind,” said Bonaduce. “At the ring, he said something I really didn’t like, and I was a little angered at.”

A little?

U2, W.?

Sex and the shitty behavior



Remember those reports that Britney Spears was going to make an appearance on “Sex and the City”? Remember how they were vehemently denied the very next day?

According to Us Weekly, Spears was indeed slated to be on the show — until Sarah Jessica Parker herself put her foot down.

Parker “threw a fit,” a source tells the magazine.

“When it was announced Britney would appear on the show, Sarah felt it was nothing but a casting gimmick,” the source says.

The pissed-off Parker reportedly hollered, “I worked too damned hard to get this show to where it is today, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to be upstaged by a Mouseketeer.”

Sarah Jessica may have a point, but that’s awful big talk from a woman who got her own start belting out “Tomorrow” in “Annie.”
