British Singer Jarvis Cocker Regrets Michael Jackson Snub

Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has confessed that he regrets trying to sabotage Michael Jackson’s 1996 Brit Awards performance.
Cocker invaded the stage as Jacko sung the Earth Song at the highly publicised ceremony, and had to be removed by the Thriller star’s security.
Three child performers received minor injuries during the fracas, and Cocker was arrested on suspicion of assault, but later released without charge.
Now, 13 years later, the Britpop star says he regrets his bad-mind behaviour: ‘That one action transported me to a kind of tabloid fame, which I couldn’t have imagined,’ he said.
‘My whole set of values had nothing to do with that kind of tabloidy thing. It took me a long time to work through.’
He continued: ‘I just pushed it too far with that thing, because it wasn’t, “Jarvis Cocker played an amazing song at the Brit Awards last night”. It was, “Jarvis Cocker titted about at the Brit Awards last night”.
‘I had been in a band 15 years, and in 15 seconds I became more well known. All that bloody work! Thrown away!’
