Barely-aging child star Macaulay Culkin took the stand this morning for the defense in the child molestation trial of fallen pop-idol Michael Jackson. Wearing an open-collared suit and a face of angelic resignation, Culkin testified that the charges against Jackson are "absolutely ridiculous." A witness for the prosecution had testified earlier in the trial to having seen Jackson touch a 10-year-old Culkin, um, where his bathing suit covers. But according to the Home Alone star, those allegations are not only untrue, but the prosecution never approached him in regards to them, and he only learned that he was mentioned in the trial from watching TV. "Somebody told me you should probably check out CNN because they're saying something about you," he said. "It was amazing to me that nobody even approached me and asked if these allegations were true."
