Pop superstar Michael Jackson has attempted to bring a "bit of normality" to his third child's life - by having him christened in a luxury hotel suite.

PRINCE MICHAEL II - who Jackson infamously dangled off a Berlin balcony last year (02) - was baptised at Las Vegas' plush $1,920 (GBP1,200)-a-night FOUR SEASONS HOTEL last week (ends31OCT03).

A source close to the THRILLER singer says, "It was a non-denominational ceremony and done to bring a bit of normality into the child's life.

"Michael wanted him to feel just as special as his other children."

Jackson's child was born to a mystery surrogate mother last year (02).
