The album burst onto Billboard magazine's pop chart at No. 10 during its first week out.

Aligning himself with other political rebels, Republican presidential candidate John McCain today will endorse a California initiative that would dramatically limit the amount that political donors could give to their favorite candidates. Proponents of the measure are gathering signatures to place it on the March 2000 primary ballot, the same one that McCain, a senator from Arizona, hopes will feature his name among his party's contenders.

Moving quickly to capitalize on fans' appetite for anything related to Michael Jackson, administrators for the singer's estate have mapped out elaborate plans for merchandising deals, a tribute concert, a television special and even a traveling exhibition of Jackson memorabilia. In a court filing last week, Jeryll S. Cohen, a lawyer for the administrators, said she expected the deals to generate an amount in the "high eight figures" -- tens of millions of dollars -- for the singer's estate.
