Jackson spotted in Manassas, Virginia

He's recorded hits like "Smooth Criminal," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - and he might have been in Manassas on Thursday.

Multiple employees of New Dimensions Inc. in Manassas said they saw the self-described "King of Pop," Michael Jackson, in the Manassas Borders during their lunch break.

The 48-year-old Jackson has been scouting the Eastern Shore of Maryland for a possible new home, so it is not inconceivable that the pop star would be in the region.

"He was pretty well disguised," said Sarah Larkin, adding that he was wearing a baseball cap and his head was pretty much covered up. He was also wearing all black.

"He was in the kids section and he did buy some books," said Larkin, 29, of Manassas, a marketing coordinator.

But if no one saw his face, was it really Jackson?

A spokesperson for Jackson did not say whether or not Jackson made a stop in Borders.

"He's looking up and down the entire coast for property," said William Marshall, Jackson's spokesperson.

Those who saw the mysterious person are sure it was Jackson.

"It was definitely him, hunched down, looking at videos, trying to keep low-key," said receptionist Doris McCrea, 49, of Manassas. McCrea said she saw him looking through thriller and horror movies before heading over to the kids' section.

Borders district marketing manager Dalia Goldgor said that they were asked to suppress the story.

"No one in the store ever saw the guy's face," Goldgor said. She did not confirm whether Jackson had paid a visit to Manassas.

"I do know it was him because I went up there today and talked to one of the cashiers and I asked her if he was there yesterday and she said, "Yes, he was,' " said McCrea. She added that two bodyguards accompanied Jackson.

"One of his guards had a big bag and they had a lot of stuff in there," said McCrea, adding that she did not see what was purchased.

She also said that one of her coworkers said she saw his distinct nose.

"It was kind of cool to see him there," said McCrea.

Well, as an avid lover of books myself, I can attest...there always seems to be more to get! :P But you know that every slightly inconspicuous person in that region as of late will be suspected to be him..:lol But at the same time, it's quite possible! Just hope he's having fun! :D

OH MY GOD IN HEAVEN!!!!!! This is were I live! NO crap. The high school I graduated from has a Manassas VA address while my home address at the time was Dale City. I could walk from my house to the school in maybe ten minutes. All these little subdivisions all run together. I could give you directions from the place I am sitting right now to this very bookstore, and it would take you about fifteen mins. I am going to be sick!!!!!!!:mf_w00t2: :mf_w00t2:

OK calm down Sheila girl it will be OK

I was in Oxford about a month ago; and I saw this amazing bookstore. Right away my first thought was, "OMG, Michael would go crazy for that bookstore."

You can't really see it from the below pictures, but the bookstore goes halfway along the highstreet and right around the corner...and it's like three storeys high.

I think the first picture shows the queue for the Harry Potter book that just came out ;)

*Tear rolls down her cheek* Three stories high, you say? -- Can you imagine all the books? -- Sorry, I'm crazy over books. I mean, seriously, I volunteer for the public library and have a whole room dedicated to my books... and my friends and I HANG OUT at bookstores (yup, I guess we are a tad bit weird,) a bookstore like that would be my dream!!! Where is this fabulous, incredible, magical place?
