ITV sits down with Jackson

90-minute revealing special to air next month

LONDON — Pop superstar Michael Jackson will give an exclusive interview to journalist Martin Bashir on commercial broadcaster ITV’s “Tonight” show in a bid to repair his crumbling reputation.

The 90-minute special, “Living With Michael Jackson,” will air next month. It promises to be revealing: The star has agreed not to set limits on the questions Bashir may ask.

Bashir has done exclusive interviews with high-profile people including the late Princess Diana, her former butler Paul Burrell and President George Bush.

Jackson hit the headlines in November after he dangled his son, Prince Michael II, from a hotel balcony in Berlin.
