Quirky pop star Michael Jackson is the latest star to put his name to a clothing line.

The BAD singer is producing a men's clothing range for WAKITA in Japan.

A spokesman for the company explains, "There is a growing popularity among young men in Japan for dark suits. Jackson, who has a huge following here, fits that rising fashion image."

In recent months the many other stars to add their name to fashion lines include actor John Malkovich, rapper Eve, cartoon character Mickey Mouse, FUGEE star Wyclef Jean, Eminem and his protege 50 CENT, actor Vinnie Jones and deceased rap hero Tupac Shakur.
