Michael Jackson's albums went diamond and now he is about to become diamonds. A U.S. company says it is in negotiations to turn a lock of Michael's hair singed off during his ill-fated Pepsi shoot into diamonds. The process would involve extracting carbon from the lock of hair then heating it to more than 4000 degrees Farenheit under extremely high pressure to make approximately 10 diamonds weighing at least a 1/2 carat each. Those diamonds would be the rarest and most sought-after diamonds in the world.
Note: Some of you have asked for that Pepsi footage. I refuse to post it because it is too disturbing. Television news showed the footage in an endless loop when the newly discovered tapes were released earlier this month. I prefer to remember Michael as he was in the good times, not when he was in agony.
