Pop superstar Michael Jackson has slammed reports he is desperate to meet an alien. The THRILLER hitmaker allegedly appealed to extraterrestrial researcher Mike Luckman to help in his quest, when the pair met in a magic store early last year (05). Luckman, author of ALIEN ROCK: THE ROCK 'N' ROLL EXTRATERRESTRIAL CONNECTION, says of their 15 minute conversation, "Michael indicated to me that he is open to making contact with otherworldly beings." But the singer's publicist Raymone Bain has blasted the reports as "pure bull". She tells the New York Daily News, "I wouldn't doubt that he was in the store but if he talked to Luckman he was only being polite."
