The world has lost one of the greats, but his music will live on forever!" Spears said in a statement: "I was so excited to see his show in London.

We were going to be on tour in Europe at the same time and I was going to fly in to see him.

He has been an inspiration throughout my entire life and I'm devastated he's gone!" The star's first wife Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, said his death had left her speechless.

"I am so very sad and confused with every emotion possible.

I am heartbroken for his children, who I know were everything to him, and for his family," Presley told MTV News in a statement.

Martin Scorsese, the film director, who worked with the singer on the Bad video, described Jackson as "extraordinary".

"Michael Jackson was extraordinary.

When we worked together on Bad, I was in awe of his absolute mastery of movement on the one hand, and of the music on the other," he said.

"Every step he took was absolutely precise and fluid at the same time.

It was like watching quicksilver in motion.

"He was wonderful to work with, an absolute professional at all times, and - it really goes without saying - a true artist.

It will be a while before I can get used to the idea that he's no longer with us." Jackson had been rehearsing hard for what was to be his comeback tour.

He had been scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at London's O2 arena, with the first date set for July 13.
