Michael Jackson made a rare appearance in Los Angeles on Thursday to perform a little retail therapy.

The King of Pop, dressed in black pants and tuxedo jacket and donning his signature pair of sunglasses, was spotted shopping on the trendy Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard.

Jackson smiled and flashed peace signs to the cameras as he browsed through the antique store Off The Wall (yes, really!), Sculpture Design Inc., the houseware shop Victorian Rose and the cosmetic boutique Alter Ego.

The singer purchased Epicuren Discovery skin treatment, a vintage silver model airplane and dodged questions from the mob of paparazzi waiting outside about his rumored bankruptcy woes and the whereabouts of his old primate pal Bubbles.
