Miss Universe, Porntip Nakhirunkanok of Thailand, told a news conference in Los Angeles that she would like to meet Michael Jackson because he is "mysterious to me, very peaceful." Nakhirunkanok made her comments in front of Mann's Chinese Theater, her first U.S. public appearance since being crowned the 37th Miss Universe May 23 in Taiwan. "I've always admired Michael Jackson," the 20-year-old college student said. She considers Los Angeles her second home, since she was born in Thailand but grew up in California and attended Pasadena City College.
