Michael Jackson seems to be settling in to the Persian Gulf.
He has shopped for real estate here, been spotted in glitzy malls _ and now it appears that Jackson is interviewing for a job.
The singer, his reputation in tatters at home after winning a grueling molestation trial in California last year, is negotiating a position as a consultant with a Bahrain-based company that plans to set up theme parks and music academies in the Middle East, according to a press release.
AAJ Holdings Ltd., owned by Bahraini businessman Ahmed Abu Bakr Janahi, said it wanted to hire the 47-year-old Jackson to give advice on setting up &to=http://english.pravda.ru/culture/2001/08/28/13564.html' target=_blank>entertainment businesses.
AAJ, which focuses mainly on urban development projects, played a key role in designing Bahrain's ongoing Financial Harbor development and Oman's Blue City, a multibillion-dollar tourist resort with golf courses, hotels, and several dozen kilometers (miles) of sandy beaches.
According to the statement, Janahi believes Jackson could play an important role in the company.
