LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Michael Jackson is talking.

CBS' ``60 Minutes'' will air an interview with the pop superstar on Sunday, marking Jackson's first public comments since his Nov. 20 arrest on suspicion of child molestation.

Ed Bradley interviewed Jackson for about 30 minutes Thursday at a hotel in Los Angeles, CBS spokesman Kevin Tedesco said Friday.

Jackson, 45, is charged with seven counts of performing lewd or lascivious acts upon a child under 14 and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent. He remains free on $3 million bail.
