Carrie Fisher spent last Christmas with Michael Jackson

Carrie Fisher - On the LotEver notice how goofy celebrities seem to gravitate towards each other? Ok, me either, but maybe that's because most celebrities are goofy in one way or another.

Got a note from CBS tonight with a fun little advance tidbit from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Carrie Fisher tells a story about her brush with Michael Jackson, who was laid to rest today.

"They came to me to go on a travel junket for talking about Michael (Jackson), because I was with him on his last Christmas," the actress tells Ferguson. "”It was fantastic. He had a big tree, and I did the Princess Leia monologue for his children. Yeah, I got paid. …No, no, I got paid nothing. But I got a lot of it, and also he got me a cell phone.”"

At this point, Ferguson asks, "For you to call him?" To which Carrie replies, "I never thought of that ... now I feel bad."

I don't know what's weirder about this story -- that Carrie Fisher spent last Christmas with Michael Jackson, that he asked her to do Princess Leia for his kids, or that he gave her a cell phone. Did he think she wouldn't have a cell phone already? Was the phone his way of paying her for the performance? Did he expect her to call him? Or was he just being kind? I guess we'll never know.

Tune in for the full story on tonight’'s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS at 12:37 AM ET/PT.

I don't know what's weirder claiming that anybody who hangs out with him is "weird" or that he's supposed to be alone. Something tells me MJ is resting in a peace a hell of a lot more than other dead stars. No longer does he have to listen to this pathetic judgements from people who never met him let alone even know him.

I must have been the only person who thought Wishful Drinking was actually any good. She's a great writer, and I thought she did a good job describing what her life was like.
