Nick Cannon Borrows Michael Jackson’s Look For “Famous” Teaser Feat. Akon [Video]

Nick Cannon is taking time off from baby-making, beefing with Eminem and acting to do what we all love him for the most…music?

In what may be a tribute that comes off more like a spoof, Mariah Carey’s man has donned garbs similar to that of the legendary Michael Jackson in his “Rock With You” video for his own vid entitled “Famous” which features Akon.

In this teaser we see Nick with a curly wig mimicking the moves of the late pop king. Nick states, “I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, so to be in that ‘Rock With You’ costume and have it look exactly like the video was crazy.”

Crazy indeed, maybe it was even delusional to think that this would be an acceptable recreation to pull off.  Or maybe this was just good fun comedy since Cannon will take on the images of  MC Hammer, Antoine Dodson, Gene Simmons and other performers in teasers that are on the way.

Although we can’t wait, this one may rub some folks the wrong way. You tell us what you think and if you’re not in the know about Mike’s visual, keep scrolling down and see how it’s really done.
