Michael Jackson goes green to save planet earth

Michael Jackson has gone green to help save the earth. The eccentric star, who frequently charters private planes and has been accused of having a large carbon footprint, has splashed out around $20,000 on an environment-friendly Toyota Prius car. Michael, 49, was seen leaving Beverly Hills’ Sharper Image electrical shop before climbing into the back seat of his super-green vehicle with his driver recently.

The Prius, which is powered by electricity and petrol, has emerged as Hollywood’s hybrid car of choice. Leonardo DiCaprio was one of the first celebrities to purchase a Prius in 2001, and other stars were quick to follow. Celebrity owners now include Cameron Diaz, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Harrison Ford and Susan Sarandon.
