LONDON, England -- Pop superstar Michael Jackson is following his appearance at the Oxford Union with more ceremonial duties.

The singer, who gave a lecture on child care, was due to appear as best man at a service marking the renewal of psychic spoon bender Uri Geller's wedding vows.

Jackson, 42, who is on a short visit to Britain, has been friends for many years with Geller, who is renewing his vows to his wife Hannah at their home in Sonning, Berkshire.

Jackson, who is on crutches after breaking his foot, was expected to pass Geller a gold wedding ring in a blessing ritual performed by his mentor, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

More than 130 guests were due to attend Wednesday's "low-key" private service, including broadcaster David Frost, Bee Gee Barry Gibb, Eurythmics star Dave Stewart and U.S. magician David Blaine.

Note that one of Geller's guests is magician David Blaine.  What the heck is Geller, a noted mentalist and actual real-life psychic doing associating himself with a magician of noted skill but thankfully non-supernatural abilities?  Somehow, I doubt he'll tell us.

Also, the title of our entry refers only to the Jackson (a bona fide freak) and not Geller (who we don't want to sue us).
