Kia Ora. In Stick News today, Michael Jackson has visited Japan.

Michael Jackson is an American pop singer. He started singing with his brothers when he was a little boy. When he got older, he sang by himself.
This week Michael came to Japan. He played pachinko.
He also went to a party. 100 people came to the party including the Kano sisters. The Kano sisters are two women who are famous for their large breasts.
Michael told all the guests he loved them. Then went into a private room with the Kano sisters for a chat.

The details of the “chat” between Michael and the Kano sisters are private. However, it has been suggested that they were swapping stories about their plastic surgery.
And that was Stick News for Thursday the 1st of June.
Kia Ora.
