Subject: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 11/02/07 at 7:52 pm

Hi Everybody!

I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson--12 years strong--and a lifelong beauty pageant participant--almost 16 years. (off and on.)

Please feel free to ask me questions on the two topics. I just beg, please don't ask anything rude about Michael Jackson.
Please feel free to ask anything else about him or beuaty pageants.  ;D

NO FEAR!

I hope to get many questions!

Tiffeny AKA Apollonia1986 ;D

Hi Tiffany, Welcome and glad to see you here.

I've always had a fascination with beauty pageants even though I would never be able to be in one myself.

Are there usually guidelines as to what to wear for each segmant of the pageant?

Hi Guys!

Thanks so much for the all the questions! I'll try to answer then as best I can!

@ Bookmistress:

The fashion guidelines differ from the type of pageants that you do. I am aware of three types of systems that include everyone from babies to senior citizens. There is the high glitz pageants, which you see mostly when they talk about Jonbenet Ramsey on tv where the girls wear really elaborate costumes and make up and big hairdos. (that's the system I've done the most.) then there's low glitz in which the girls wear clothing like you'd probably see in a wedding, dressy, but not adult-like. And then there's natural system. Where you don't wear make up and look age appropriate. And then there's so much other things. Like for swimsuit, some pageants insist that the outfits are age approriate and some don't mind if the girls wear 2 pieces and so on. It depends on the pageant, and the system that you're in because there's so many segements.

@ Whistledog:

That's a cute question. No Michael has never himself competed in a beaty pageant but in 1968, shortly before he and the jackson five moved to Motown Records and got discovered, they performed at the Miss Black America pageant. I think they did a James Brown song. I have it on tape somewhere.  :)

@ Quirk:

My fave Michael Jackson song is "Someone Put Your Hand Out." It's an outtake from his 1991 Dangerous album and available on his "Ultimate Collection" (It can be heard during an interlude in his Live From Bucharest" concert too)

@ SiouxBoi:

My favorite album of all time is the "Bad" album. I love it. ;D Everything from it was awesome, the sound, Michael's look, everything.

@ Howard:

That's not a question. It's a comment.  :o

@ Philip:

Thriller's not very scary to me now. I like it alot and just enjoy the music and dancing and costuming and all. His short film, Ghosts, is much scarier.  ;D

@ Howard:
I can't compare. Michael's done so much work and I like all his work. I have 40 different MJ cds in my collection and there's only three songs out of my entire collection I dilike.

@Brigitte:

I suppose they still have pageants because girls and women like to dress up and win crowns and feel like a princess every now and then. (At least I do!) Yes, I've won several pageants. When I was little, I usually won teddy bears and little gift certificates, but now I win actual titles--because pageants are better than they were in the early 90s when I started--and huge crowns.

@Howard:  I'm not sure. I assume you mean new material and not another dowdy greatest hits album. His first new album is due out Spring '08. And assuming that since Michael will be sixty in 2018, he has the potential to put out at least 3-4 new albums. (I'm ging by the 3-4 years that pass between albums) Or if he starts doing like Prince, he can pop one out every year.  :)

Thanks so much for the questions and I look forward to answering more!

Does Michael and Prince have a close friendship or at least professional admiration for one another?  I think Michael has named his children Prince, is that the reason?


When were you in your first pageant?  What is the biggest prize you've won doing pageants?  What is the most performed song (if you know) in the talent portion of the Miss USA pageant or Miss Universe pageant?

@ Philip:

Before you start digging, he's not in Ghost with Whoopi Goldberg and Demi Moore. He's in Ghosts (also known as "Michael Jackson's Ghosts") Just want to clarify that because a friend of mine bought Ghost thinking Michael was in it and was sorely upset to know she got it wrong.  ::)

@ Bookmistress:

I love this question. Michael Jackson and Prince are neither bitter enimies or best buddies forever. They are however very ammicable to each other every time they meet. (Prince played his guitar very close to Michael at one of his concerts in Las Vegas last year, and Michael has admitted to liking a few of Prince's songs.)

Michael Jackson's two sons are not named after the singer Prince.  Michael's grandfather on his mother's side is names Prince Albert Scruse and Michael named his sons after his grandfather because he admired the man and wanted the name to live on.

I was in my first pageant when I was five years old. It was done as a fundraiser for the school and I came in third. The biggest prize I've won so far was a 1,000 saving bond when I was 13 at a nationals pageant, and my largest crown is almost seven inches high that I won this past February.

I think the most performed song--don't quote me though--is the opera "Habernera" from the Carmen opera.

@ Belle:

Very good question! No, I'm covering two different topics. Michael Jackson is one topic and beauty pageants are the other. I just didn't want to make more than one thread.  ;D And I'm not sure if Michael particularly likes pageants.  :) but, Billie Jean was "more like a beauty queen from a movie scene"

I know that he is not in Ghost, for I saw the film back in the early 90s, several times since, and it was on Channel 4 last night on tv.

Would love to see pictures of some of your crowns. 

Do you have any funny stories of when you've been in pageants?

If you were to have children (or if you already DO have children) would you put them in pageants?

I think it used to be in the Miss USA pageant where when the contestants were first introduced, they made a costume that represented their state...what would your costume look like if you were a contestant in the Miss USA pageant?


Have you ever travelled very far from your home to compete in a pageant?

Can you tell that I like pageants too, especially the gowns and of course, the crowns?  lol

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 11/06/07 at 7:15 pm

@Howard:
I wasn't born until 1986. ;D But the strange thing is, Michael got burned on January 27,1984, which was my father's birthday. I think he was 57. (My father, not Michael. LOL)

@ Bookmistress:

I'll have to hunt down some pics of myself because I don't usually display them in my room. (My crowns are there, and tons of MJ pics. LOL. I'll post a couple pics soon!)

Well, yeah I have one from when I was about 8. I had lost to another little girl and I actually snatched the crown off her head and threw it off stage!  ;D My mom almost had a fit in the audience when I did that, I did get punished for it. I saw the same girl last year and we laughed about it. So there's no hard feeling between us.  8)

I don't have children at the moment, but I hope to be a pageant mom whenever I get blessed with a little bundle of joy. I'll probably wait until my girl is 2 or 3 before I enter her. (though some pageants accept girls as young as a month old.) I love it and even design my own pageant clothing.

My costume. I'm from Texas, but I wouldn't want to do a  typical cowgirl outfit. I think that since Texas has a growing hispanic/mexican community--though I am Black-- I'd try to come up with something that incorporates the American Flag, The Texan Flag and the Mexican flag. I've never had to actually come up with a state costume, thought I have represented my state several times in contests.

I've traveled out of state a few times, I try to keep my pageanteering inside of Texas, cause gas prices are killer! LOL!

And YES I can tell you like pageants.  ;D I wish more people did.

Wow, Top Five, That's kind of hard but here's a rough list:

--Black or White (unedited version)
--Who is it?
--Blood on the Dance Floor (original edit)
--Rock With You
--Another Part of Me (live from Austrailia, 1988)

My least favorite is probably Heal the World, only because Michael does not make an appearance in the video. I love the song though, and usually watch the version of Heal the World he performed at the 1993 Superbowl.

@ Howard:

Yes, I am aware of it. There are already some people in the MJ fan community planning for his party because alot of the look alikes do parties for him and alot of the fans host parties also. I haven't been to one, but my friends and I always party at my house.

And Michael looks about the same now as he did ten years ago. The only thing that's changed is his hair. LOL. :D

I appreciate the questions. Thanks so much! Post more. I love answering them!

@ Howard:

That's a rude question. >:( His nose is still attatched to his face and he has only altered it over the years! And it will not fall off.

@ Bookmistress:

Michael Jackson has been inspired by the likes of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelley and of course, James Brown and Jackie Wilson. Michael has taken steps from them and recreated them and put some of that moonwalker magic on them to make them his own. I've seen Michael tap dance when he was 18 like Fred Astaire on the Jacksons Variety show, and dance like JB in the 80s. Michael's moonwalk his based on the mime act called "walking against the wind" where a mime will open an umberella and act like a strong wind is blowing on him. Michael has taken elements from miming, jazz, tap, and so forth and applied them to his own dancing to create something trademark and unique.  ;D

@ Philip:

Michael's nose is still his. Just like a woman with breast implants, boobs are still her own, just altered. It's not like Michael can open a box and pick noses out like you can pick out a pair of earrings. As far as I know, Michael has had been two and six nose alterations. His nose doesn't concern me. I love his music and his career and everything and his nose is just so trivail. I don't care. Everyone has a nose and what they do to it is there business.

And please no more plastic surgery questions. His nose and chin have only been altered. His lips, eyes, and cheeks are his. His skin lightening has been caused by a skin condition called vitiligo that takes the pigmentation out his skin and he uses make up to even it out. Michael has stated that that skin condition is common on his father's side of the family. I've seen alot of Michael's cousins and they are all pretty fair skinned.
I hope that covers all the MJ body related issues. LOL.

Do fans of MJ have a name for themselves, like for instance, the fans of the rock group Kiss are members of the Kiss Army?

Are you a member of any of his fan clubs?

Have you ever seen him live in concert?


What is your favorite pageant gown that you've put together, describe it for me please?

Do you have a talent that you do in pageants?

Are talent portion of the pageant becoming a thing of the past?

What, if any, have been some of the hardest questions you've had to answer in the interview portion of any pageants you may have been in?

Too many questions?

Hi guys!

@ Bookmistress:

There are several names that MJ fans run under. Many girls call themselves after "Billie Jean" and "Dirty Diana", and just in general, we call ourselves "Michaelers". Certain fanclubs have names according to what they're called. I have a group called The Michael Jackson Mafia and we call ourselves the Mobsters. (Goodfellas is one of my fave films!) And a friend of mine has one called MJ Surfer Babes and they're called The Surfers.

I am a member of so many clubs it's ridiculous. I literally stopped counting after 100. Seriously.  ::)

I haven't had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Jackson in concert just yet...but I'm working on it.

I can do better than describe the gown for you. Here's a skectch of the dress I did myself. (My friends call it the Sprite soda dress)
http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b191/guarinigirl2000/YGdress.jpg  I wore this at a contest I did in February.

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b191/guarinigirl2000/PRoutfit.jpg And this is a sportwear I based off a costume Prince wore on his Purple Rain Tour. (His was white lace)

I usually sing at pageants. You Are Not Alone is sort of my signature song.

Talent is getting bigger in the home grown pageant systems. I've seen girls dance, sing, do gymnastics and everything like a pro. The only thing dying is baton twirling.

Let's see the hardest question I've ever had was a few years ago when some one asked me about foreign policy and at the time I didn't know what it was. So I kind of had to wing it. I lost "spokesmodel" on that one.

@ Howard:

Yes, there should be a new album out by Spring/Summer '08. Michael will on the cover of December's issue of Ebony Magazine, and there is a large article on him in. It's out on Monday.

@ Philip:

Michael is moving around between Ireland, New York and Los Angeles as far as I know. I'm sure he's in California, most of his family lives there. He has one sister in Kentucky though.  :)

Thanks for the questions y'all!

Beautiful gowns, thanks for sharing your sketches.  They were quite lovely.

Have you tried to learn any of Michael's signature dance moves?

Have you ever sang or danced to any of Michael's music while competeing in a pageant?

*edit: Only later did I realize that "You are not alone" was a MJ song, which you said you already sing in pageants.  lol  Sorry for being repetitive in my questions.  ;D


How many pageants would you say you've been in?  Any particular favorites that you are in?  Any especially "unusual" ones, for example... Miss Turnip Queen or some such pageant..  ;)

You live in Ireland? I know that Michael was holed up in some castle over there, doing some recording with Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas.

@Howard:

I haven't been able to find any MJ jackets in my price range, but I actually have a Michael Jackson doll that came out in 1984 and he's in the "Beat It" outfit. (The other one is in the "Billie Jean" video outfit.)

I actually don't want anything that looks exactly what Michael wore. If I wear it to a concert there will be 500 other people with the same thing on. Gimme a black version of the "Beat It" jacket or a green version of the outfit MJ wore to the 84 American Music Awards. Michael rewrote the rules of fashion and I think fans should too.  8)

@ Bookmistress:

Thanks so much for the comments on the sketches. I'm pretty close to aging out of the usual pageant systems, so I'd like to maybe design for people. I have a ton of sketches.  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/09/scream.gif

I've learned a couple of Michael's moves. I can moonwalk, and I know some moves from his videos. I can do some of the "Thriller" dance. I've incorporated some of his moves into modeling routines for pageants.

You're not being repetitive.  ;)

Oh gosh, I know I've done at least 40 contests over the years. Haven't really counted. When I started, I didn't really win anything. LOL. I think that the one with the most unusual name was Miss Rice Festival. (I didn't even place in that!) LOL.

Around these parts we have Miss Pecan Queen, Miss Rice Festival Queen, Miss Mardi Gras, Miss Cajun Queen, and since Texas has a lot of Hispanic citizens, there are some pageants like "Miss Hispanic Heritage". I don't usually do the little local things, because they conflict with the other glitz pageant systems I go to.

@ Hot Stuff:

Thanks for the compliment. I love to sketch. I've drawn alot of inspiration from what I've seen Michael Jackson and Prince and Apollonia Kotero wear. Some of thier stuff looks like pageant clothing ready to go.

@ Brigitte:

Yes. I love "Ben" I actually have two versions of it. The studio one Michael did when he was about 12 years old and a live version he did in 1981 when he was about 23. ( I like the live version better. LOL.)

Once again, thank you for the questions and comments!  ;D

It was recorded in 1973 when Michael was 15 (you can hear his voice is deeper than in earlier J-5 records) but it wasn't realeased until 1984 as an "undicscovered" track.

Hi Guys!

Once again, wonderful questions!

@ Bookmistress:

Okay I love the whole Arsenio Hall thing. First off all, off the bat, Michael was looking pretty hot in all that black and red. Michael initially came out to give Eddie Murphy an award, and then Eddie and Arsenio surprised Michael with an award having to do with Thriller. (I can't remember what the exact award was and PLEASE don't make me go through my archives to look! LOL!) Michael and Eddie were pretty close friends and Eddie even appeared in Michael's "Remember the Time" video.

Michael has worked with a lot of great directors on his videos. John Ladis did direct Thriller and also directed Michael's Black or White video. (I even have footage of Michael and Macauly Culkin smaching him with pies when the video wrapped.)

Some Other videos and directors:

Don't Stop Til You Get Enough--Nick Saxton
Rock With You--Bruce Gowers
Billie Jean--Steve Barron
Beat It--Bob Giraldi (I hear he also directed the Pepsi commercial that Michael got burned filming)
Bad--Martin Scorcese--yes, THE Martin Scorsese!
The Way You Make Me Feel and Dirty Diana--Joe Pytka (I love Dirty Diana!)
Michael also directed his video for the song "In The Closet" that was shot by late famed photographer Herb Ritts and featured supermodel Naomi Capmbell. I don't know if she threw a phone at him or not.  ;D It's a pretty hot vid.  ;)

If I missed any videos--I have about maybe 30 of his vids and clips from Jacksons ones--please give me the video name and I'll find the director's name.

@Howard:

Ok. I think it was called that cause that's when they released trhe song, probably trying to cash in on the Michael Jackson Thriller mania.
Everyone was sticking Michael's face on stuff. I even know a lady with Michael's face on an earrings/necklace set. (She WON'T sell it!) >:(

Thanks for the questions! Keep them coming!

Wow Howard. LOL.

I like Michael's hair the way it is now. It's so long and pretty and lush.  ;D A lot of the fams want him to else curl it or cut it shorter like in his You Are Not Alone video. (I don't want him to cut it like that, cause it'll look too much like Prince's hair and the last thing I want is people to say he's copying him! ::) )

I'd hate to be a judge at a pageant because nowadays, all the contestants are so good, I'd die trying to choose just one winner. I'd rather host, I love to speak.

@Howard: I assume that you mean out of Michael's siblings. At 57 years old, his sister Maureen (Rebbie) is the oldest. The oldest boy is Jackie, who I think is 56.

This is Rebbie:

Hi guys! Thanks for the questions!

@Bookmistress: Thanks alot!  ;D

How many Michael dolls were made...There's the "Beat It" doll--that I'm kissing--the "Thriller" doll, "Billie Jean" (there's one in an outfit like the BJ video and then one like on the Motown 25) "Human Nature" doll. (He comes in a white shirt, yellow sweater vest, bowtie and silver pants. If you look closely, there's a doll box in the background with Michael on it, the doll is based on that outfit.) And there's a Grammy awards Michael (I have the doll outfit) It comes with a shiny blue military jacket, gold pants, glitter socks, loafers, and the glitter glove. And the really rare American Music Awards Michael,, he's in a red and gold militarty jacket, black pants and has a BLACK glove instead of a white one. (he wore a black glove to the awards show)

I actually never had a chance to play the Moonwalker video game, but one of my friends has it--but not the game system to play it on >:(. She has the Sega Genesis version of the game.

@Howard. Thank you.  :) And I try hard to be as good as fan as I can. 12 years strong.  ;)

@Bookmistress:

Hi!

I actually got into Michael Jackson by pure accident. I had seen his "Leave Me Alone" video when I was 3 "Thriller" when I was six, but other than that, I didn't know much about Michael. I happened to catch his 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters with his now ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley. I watched the whole thing and was just captivated and enthralled by the talent bouncing across the screen. (I was nine years old at the time.) And they showed a clip of him singing "Billie Jean" and I was surprised that I knew the words to the song. (And they premiered the You Are Not Alone video.)Michael was so different from the people I had liked when I was younger--MC Hammer and New Kids on the Block. I begged my mom for a week to buy me a Michael album after that. When I got it, I was hooked and the last dozen years of my life have been great!
I just think that Michael is a special person, and I adore him alot.

I've heard "Centipede" a couple of times, it's a nice song.

Michael has produced a few artists. A couple that I know of are SWV (sisters with voices), Brownstone, and 3T (they are actually Tito's three sons, Michael's nephews)

This is 3T:

http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/waeckerlin/3t.jpg

And I found some pics of the dolls in the box, and some of the doll outfits.

http://www.bigreds.com/humNature.gif
Human Nature outfit. (This also appeared on the cover of the "Thriller" song single.)

http://www.bigreds.com/motown.gif
This is the Motown 25th outfit. I dunno where in the Sam Hill they came up with a silver jacket, because Michael has ALWAYS worn a black jacket and white shirt while singing this song. I've seen "Billie Jean" dozens of times over the years, through three different tours and the outfit is ALWAYS the same. But it's still cute.

Why did he want to buy The Elephant Man?

Written By: apollonia1986 on 11/20/07 at 2:58 pm

Hi Howard.

Michael Jackson has never wanted to buy John Merrick's (the Elephant Man's) bones! It's immoral and morbid.
Michael, though does have an admiration for Mr. Merrick and the struggles he over came because of his disorder. The movie based on his life is one of Michael's favorites.  It was all just a rumour.

And in Michael's 1988 "Leave Me Alone" music video, he even poked fun at the rumour by dancing with a clayanimation figure of the Elephant Man.  :D Scared me (bleep)less when I was younger.

Thanks for the question! I look forward to more. I know there's gotta be tons of things people want to know about Michael!!!!

Alright more questions!

@Bookmistress:

Yes, Michael has spoken about his children on numerous occasions. In his recent Ebony Magazine interview, Blanket was in the room for most of the interview.
Michael would like to see his children follow his footsteps in the music biz, but wants them to wait until their adults so they can enjoy thier childhoods.
Michael's little girl is named after the place she was concieved, Michael, and Michael's mother. Her full name is Paris Katherine Michael Jackson. (I swear on a stack of bibles, she has his name in her name!)
I'm not sure who's the godparents of Blanket, but for the older two, Prince and Paris, Macauly Culkin is the godfather and Elizabeth Taylor is the godmother.

@Howard. LOL.

Both Michael's sons are named after Michael's maternal grandfather Prince Albert Scruse. (Prince Michael Jackson, Jr. and Prince Michael Jackson III) And the younger one is called "Blanket" as a nickname. The little boy "blankets" people with affection, hugs...etc, and the name grew out of that. It comes from a saying Michael has used for years, blanketing people. Whenever he meets people, Michael is very sweet and hugs them. Especially fans.

Thanks for the questions.

Keep'em coming!

Hi Y'all!

@Bookmistress:

No, I don't sew my own dresses. My mom's friend, who lives in Oklahoma does them for me. I just email the sketches to her and she does the rest. I was going to learn to sew, but the lady who was going to teach me unfourtunately died. :(

No, I didn't. Those, to me, are nothing but popularity contests and I'd rather do a real pageant where you're judged on  more than if you're head cheerleader and have big boobs.

I like that pageants have given me confidence to go out and talk to people. My public speaking is great because I always get up in front of the crowd at shows and do the interview segment and all. And I like that I get to feel like a star for a day. Like Paris Hilton--except I have underwear on.  ;D

@Howard:

Yeah, I've seen it. I have part of the commercial on tape. It's so cute. I love it. If you notice, I think over a 6 year period, Michael Jackson did about 10 Pepsi Cola spots, he NEVER drank the soda in the commercials. He may have held the can, but he never drank from it. I've seen spots from 1984 and 1988. He never drank the cola. I think he had it written in his contract to not drink it.
I've seen him drink Shasta soda though.  LOL.

Even though he endorsed it, I haven't drank Pepsi or Pepsi products since I was about 12 when I found out that Pepsi fired him in 1993, after the allegations.
The also fired Madonna after her "Like a Prayer" vid came out and Prince was supposed to do a commercial also around 1990-1991 right after he did the "Batman" soundtrack but he got canned too. (Not sure why he got fired, but I think the bottomless trousers had something to do with it. Don't quote me though.)
They fired the "Musical Trinity". Kinda sucks.

Well thanks for the questions and I look forward to more!

HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

@Bookmistress:

If I could ask Michael anything, it would be "Would you move back to Neverland, and give me a tour of it." I've been wanting to go to Neverland since I was a kid. (One of my friends thought he actually charged people to use his amusement park. LOL)

And as far as I know he's close to all of them. They don't get to see each other as much as they like, but they have get togethers throughout the year. (I heard Michael say this in an interview.)

Oh, and Bookmistress. You were asking about Michael's kids performing. On Michael's Invincible album there's a song called The Lost Children and all through out the song and especially at the end, you can hear his oldest son, Prince, singing and speaking in the song. (He was about 3 or 4 when the song was recorded.) It's a sweet song.  ;D

Thanks for all the questions!

Hi Woops!

Yes that really is Michael Jackson's voice you hear on the Simpsons. I'm not sure why he used the pseudonym "John Jay Smith". but it always seems the more Michael tries to hide, the more he sticks out.  ;D

Case in point: Michael shopping a few days ago in California:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062007/various/shopping_la/019.jpg

I dunno who he was trying to fool, but I applaud the effort.  ;D Fans found him anyway. We have MJ-dar and can spot him a mile away. LOL. And besides if it's 180 degrees out and you see a tall thin man in long clothes and a cap and towel, I'll bet anyone a steak dinner it's Michael Jackson!  ;D

As far as the MJ/Simpsons connection, in the end of Michael's "Black or White" video you see Bart dancing to the song and Homer (eating a bananna--not drinking a Duff beer!) tells him to pipe down. Also the song Michael sings, "Happy Birthday Lisa" has been released as a single in some countries.

(This is probably who you saw because if you look at his sunglasses, you see protest poster being reflected in the lenses.)

I just wanted to keep the options open. I know alot of look alikes were there.
(There was also a French look alike, but I can't find a photo of him.)

To be honest, I never really paid attention to the look alikes, just Michael because I was very very unhappy with the trial and focused on Michael, his appearance and his health.

To be honest, I never really paid attention to the look alikes, just Michael because I was very very unhappy with the trial and focused on Michael, his appearance and his health.


Thanks for the question, that really made me think!  ;D



I'll look him up if I have the chance.

I just read recently about the horrible incident of a beauty pageant contestant, Ingrid Marie Rivera....whose makeup and dress were covered in pepper spray, resulting in her breaking out in horrible hives, etc. Thankfully, she didn't give up and ended up winning.

Anyway, do you see this kind of immaturity often in the beauty pageant world.....other ladies/contestants being so jealous/vindictive...that they would pull this kind of prank on someone?

Hi Guys!

@ Philip:

http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/01/balloons.gif That's good news. I hope it's true. Alot of MJ-ers aren't taking Jermaine too seriously though because he talks alot... ;D But I hope it's true. I wanna go see Michael. And I dunno why they keep saying Jackson Five--it's The Jacksons now. (Since it's all six brothers! :) )

@Quirk:

I heard about that. That was so awful, but I can't say I haven't heard of anything like that before. Nothing like that has happened to me, and I've never done anything like that.

I've been extremely picky about the pageants I do since I was about 12. When I was 12 and at a pageant with my mom there was a girl in my age group, and she got terrorized. Whoever targted her broke  the heels off her shoes, and put black paint on her clothing. It was awful. A lot of the pageants I did when I was young, used to have the girls all in one room and you all changed in there and did hair and make-up, but after that incident, my mom and I only chose pageants where I could book a hotel room to myself. And I'm superguared now. At the last pageant I went to, I had about 5 or 6 of my friends with me, and I had one friend walk with me to get my hair and make up done and the rest watchdogged my room and made sure no one messed with my clothes.

That's the ugly side of beauty pageants.

Thanks guys and send more questions!

Did he have any design aspirations?  I mean, did he design the sparkly glove or jacket?  Does he usually wear loafer shoes?

I think he might have helped design a theme park ride at Disney (Florida) awhile ago, I think it was based on his Moonwalker video or something.

You've had tremendous success with your ask me threads!  I had an ask me thread once (about libraries) and I think I might have had 10 questions total.  lol  ;D

Hi Everyone!

@Bookmistress:

I'm not quite sure where Michael gets his design elements from. But another man designed Michael's trademark glove. (The original one had 1,200 rhinestones on it, and he actually started wearing a glove in 1981 on the Triumph tour, two years before the Motown 25) The purpose behind Michael's jacket and glove (and later, white tape on his fingers) was so that everyone no matter where you were in the audience, front row or nosebleed seats, you can see him moving onstage. (I'll look into the name of the man that makes Michael's clothing. The last person I heard of making clothes for him was a man named Michael Bush.)

In 1986, a video and ride debuted at Disneyland called "Captain EO". I've never been on the ride, but I did see the video. It's pretty awesome. It's the only music video Michael did during the transitional phase between Thriller and Bad. (He still has a short Jherri Kurl, but his skin is starting to get lighter.)
I think that Neverland could have been based on Michael's Leave Me Alone video. In it he's making fun of the press who keeps making up wild stories about him,and he made himself into a theme park to kind of show how the press plays on him, and doesn't treat him as a person. I like it.

There was even a line of toys that came out in the late 80s that featured some of the creatures in the movie.

Thanks, I didn't think my threads would get this many hits, but I guess people have alot of questions about Michael and Prince. I don't mind answering nice questions. And I appreciate all the nice ones I've gotten.  ;D

Well for me pageant season is summer vacation, because everyone is out of school and there's lot of festivals and fairs that offer pageants, plus the big pageant systems have thier own contests. (I'd much rather go around in the summer, it's alot more fun!) It;s more fun to be at a pageant with 50 girls than just five. LOL.

@Howard: I like that site. I first met E'Casanova through that site.  ;D

What was Captain Eo based on?

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 12/03/07 at 5:55 pm

Hi Howard:

Captain EO is loosely based on Star Wars. (George Lucas had a hand in the production) Michael is the captain of a space shuttle and they have to save the universe from an evil witch--played by Anjelica Huston I think--and he has a bunch of little creatures that look like Furbies.

It has a big song and dance number in it. It's like Beat It, in space. I like it. There's a website somewhere with it on it, when I find it, I'll let you know.  ;D

Michael worked with alot of big name directors, Lucas, Scorcesse, Landis, etc, but he never actually made a full length film in the 80s. I feel cheated. :\'(  LOL.

Written By: apollonia1986 on 12/04/07 at 3:21 pm

Hi Howard:

Yes, I think that Michael is capable of starring a large production film. He'd just have to be extremely particular in what type of roll he plays. I mean nobody'd beleive him as a gigilo or as a murderer. I see him more as playing a role closer to who he is, like a sweet innocent type of thing. I watch a lot of Jimmy Stewart movies and Jimmy plays alot of nice guys and I'd like to see Michael play something like that.

And Michael played the Scarecrow in the movie version of The Wiz. He has a cute knack for comedy.

But Michael is like Prince, he usually writes and produces his own things as opposed to doing someone else's films. He had a cameo in Men in Black 2 and I barely heard him because everyone started screaming like (bleep)s when he came on the screen. (Good screaming though) And he acted pretty well there.

I just kind of hope that whatever he does, it's A-List all the way. God forbid he makes a flop.

Hi Howard:

There are three ways I can answer this question:

One:

I assume that you're referring to Michael's skin color and complexion. Michael Jackson has a skin disorder called Vitiligo that takes the color out of his skin. (I actually went to school  with a girl with the same disorder. She was very dark-skinned and the white patches it made on her skin were very noticiable.) He is not going to get darker. He will stay light like he is now.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/platinium/014.jpg

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20032005/col/arriving/001.jpg

Two:

You are referring to Michael's hair. I would love to see it shorter, but he's living in the long style now. I doubt he'll ever go back to a Jherri Kurl or an Afro. (He went curly in 2002 and I didn't really like it and he wore an afro for a party in 2001--no comment. ;) ) Most of us fans want a short haircut like he had in 1995 at the MTV Video Music Awards. Hands down one of the best performances he's ever done.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/history/awards/vma/001.jpg

I love this hairdo on him!

Three:

You're referring to Michael's fashion. The 80s are over and I so miss them. In the 80s we say about three different sides to Michael Jackson. In the early 80s he was wearing very elaborate heavy 40-pound jackets. (Increasing his weight from about 120 to 160 pounds) to the late 80s where he was wearing more sort of rock inspired looks with black leather and chains and stuff. Sort of Psuedo-Thug. And off stage, his look was suburban preppie with sweater vests and bow ties. I have seen the military style jackets in recent years, but now he's like a celebrity Emo because he's wearing so much black all the time. Makes me sad. He looks wonderful in color.

Also a shot from 1986, he's hedging off into the look that would become synonomous with the Bad album.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/bad/photoshoots/misc/013.jpg
Photoshoot from 1987. Michael's hair is longer and he's sporting a somewhat tougher image to go along with the Bad vibe. Leather, chains. Like a PG version of Prince. He wore this style of clothing off and on until about 1997 or 1998. (I love Michael's fashion, so I try to keep up with him.  ;D )

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/bad/photoshoots/misc/008.jpg
And even in the late 80s, he's still doing a sort of preppy look.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/history/photoshoots/vibe/008.jpg
He even tried to go for a hip-hop look in 1995 for Vibe magazine. A lot of people like this one. I like it too. I've seen him wear a look like this last year, but I can't locate a pic!

I hope that helped.

Hi Guys!

@Bookmistress:

Michael's glove is more of a fashion statement. Michael's onstage clothing all serves a purpose. He wears the glove so you can see his every hand movement no matter where he is and the white socks so you can see his feet movements. But there was a symbolism in it to Michael. He once said that as long as he had the glove on, he was never offstage. (I have seen  a display of Michael's that had multicolored gloves in it) I like to see him wear a black one.

You're welcome. I'm all the place for photos. I know Michael's fashion so well it's silly. (Alot of my friends say I should be his stylist. LOL)

Hi Everybody!

@Bookmistress:

There are two scenarios as to how Michael Jackson and his brothers got discovered. One was that they went to Motown in Detriot and auditioned on camera and Berry Gordy saw them and got interested in them and the second scenario is that Tommy Chong (of Cheech and Chong) discovered them. I choose to beleive the first story. Suzanne de Passe found them and introdiced them to Berry. So many people claim to have discovered Michael.  ::)

Michael is was born in Gary, Indiana. It was a sort of steel milling town back in the 60s when Michael was a child, but it's now kind of fallen to ruin. I think the Jackson house. (coincidentally on 2300 Jackson Street--it is not named for him, that was thew actual name of the street!) is a historical landmark. A few years ago, Michael went back and toured his childhood home.

Michael likes Mexican Food and Sushi. (I read an interview his personal chef did in 1984 and that Michael liked Quesedillas with hot sauce and apple pie. And he's been eating sushi for like ten years.) And he loves his mother's cooking. His mom is from the south--Alabama I think--and she makes all the good soul food!  :) I have seen Michael on tape eating salads, boiled eggs (from an Easter egg hunt) and sushi. And candy! LOL.

And occasionally I've heard of Michael eating from KFC and Taco Bell. (Even though he's supposed to be a vegetarian! LOL!)

@ Philip: I love Santa Claus is Coming to Town by the Jackson Five. It's so cute.

@Bookmistress:
Michael collects alot of things--Disney Memorobilia,(There is a Dumbo statue in Michael's theatre)  Peter Pan Memoribilia (There is actually a life sized stature of Pan and Hook fighting in the roof of Michaell's living room). He really idolizes James Brown and he has alot of his albums and stuff in his home too.

Some of his animals are still at Neverland, but since he doesn't really stay there anymore, most of them have been donated to zoos. I heard that Tippi Hedren adopted on of his giraffes. (I think he sould keep his elephants though--Liz Taylor gave one to him.)

Michael has several foundtations--Heal the World established in 1992 and Heal the Kids established in 2000. Michael actually holds the Guiness World Record for Contributions to the most charities--close to a hundred different causes I beleive. If he hit the red carpet for every event he did, he'd be on someone's carpet about every 3-5 days. LOL.

Hi Y'all.

Sure I'd like to hear some more of Latoya's music. All I have from her is the scream that opens the Jacksons song "This Place Hotel" (Also known as "Heartbreak Hotel") And she sings backup on PYT on Michael's Thriller album.

@Howard: Those bandages don't bother me. I've seen Michael in far worse. A cast on his foot in 2002 when he fell in his house and broke it, a cast on his wrist in 1998 when he sprained if from falling, in a wheelchair in 1992 when he sprained his ankle. (I guess he falls alot.  :( ) And I've seen him with a bandaged nose plenty of times. After 12 years, I barely notice it. It's another day at the office for me. LOL.

@Robby, he does look healthier now than I've seen him in recent years.  :)

Hi Howard.

That's a rude question.  ::) No Michael Jackson's nose will not fall off. That is his nose--he has just had it altered. It's not like he had a nose transplant or anything. And I could care less about his nose. It's his talent that I'm concerned about and it's that talent that keeps me as a fan.

Ask more questions please.  ;D

Yes, Michael loves classical music. He likes Chopin, Mozart, DeBussy, Beethoven. He used to play alot of that music around his Neverland estate. He loves it. (I like it too. )

Hi Guys!

@Howard:
Michael I'm sure like everyone else on the planet wants to remain youthful, but he does not have a hyperbaric chamber. He was put in one in 1984 when he got burned during that Pepsi commercial and it's supposed to speed the healing process. (I know because about 5 years ago, my mother had to go into the chambers for an injury she had.) The photograph of Michael Jackson that's been circulating for years was actually planted by Michael's camp in 1987-1988. If you notice, Michael is wearing jeans and t-shirt and socks. You cannot go into a real working chamber with that stuff on because you might catch on fire. It'd be WAY more beliveable if Michael had on hospital scrubs. (My mother wore scrubs in the chamber)

@Philip: Thanks for that bit of info.  ;)

@Bookmistess: I think it's strange that no channel will air the actual pageant, but not a reality-show based on the pageant. Talk about hypocrisy.  >:(
I heard that TLC (The Learning Channel) is doing a reality show based on the pageant too.

Thanks for all the questions and I look forward to more!

Hi Howard.  ;)

Apollonia Jackson. See, I really don't see it happening. I mean Michael marrying Apollonia would be like Prince marrying Lisa Marie Presley (Or Debbie Rowe if he was depserate and so drunk he didn't know his own name!)

It seems weird. Like dating your best friend's ex.

If I'm right, Michael and Apollonia have seen each other ONCE at the American Music Awards in 1986. Michael won an award for "We Are The World" and I think Apple made Mr. Blackwell's Worst Dressed list.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/sexshooter/AMA/AMA86_03.jpg
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/sexshooter/138.jpg
This is what Apple wore during the telecast. (oddly enough, it's the same colors as Michael's Grammy Awards jacket from 1984) It's a bit much, even for the 80s.  :D

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/ama_86/arriving/022.jpg
This is what Michael wore. And if you ever notice Michael with a date anywhere, he's more dressed up than his woman.
Nobody'd SEE Michael if he went with Apple, they'd be blinded by her outfit. LOL.

And I think that's the same now because Apollonia really does dress...um, loudly and Michael and WAY more sedate now.

But it may one day happen. Stranger things have.  :D

I'm not so sure about New Year's pageants, but Christmas pageants are pretty common place. (I've never done one because I'd rather spend 500 dollars on a gift--for me lol--instead of an entry fee) One of the most popular ones actually happen in July by a company called Southern Angels and their contest is called "Christmas in July" it's pretty cute. They have a Santa there and all the crowns have little red and green Christmas trees on it.

@Howard:

From what I'm hearing about Mr. Jackson, they're realeasing a 25th anniversary version of the Thriller album. (I don't know if I'll get it because I have an original CD Thriller and bonus tracks one but this one has exclusive remixes... :( I might end up getting it, just because it's Michael LOL.)

I also hear that he's releasing a "new music" cd later in 08 (tracks have already been "leaked" to the web) and planning a tour. And I'm actually skipping pageant season this year because there will always be pageants, but a Michael Jackson tour doesn't come along too often. All the fans are buzzing about it.

That is a cute... unusual crown for the Christmas in July pageant.  It's freakin' HUGE though.  It looks like it weighs a good 10 pounds, put that on the girl's head and she has neck problems or balance problems.  ;D

Has there been any violence directed towards the girls in beauty pageants in the last few years?  It seems the tide of interest has definately swung towards other types of contests (such as so-called reality shows) rather then those based on beauty, talent, and interview.
I used to like the spokesmodel portion of a series called "Star Seach" - which I think was probably before you were born.  ;)

Hi Guys.

@Woops:
Unfortunately, yes, I have been ridiculed for my admiration of Michael Jackson. It was pretty bad. But I'm over it, and I am STILL a Michael Jackson fan and always will be.  I don't like conforming to what people think I should like or things of that nature. (Right now I'm blasting a DeBarge song--that came out three years before I was born!) Michael's music and videos have made me happy since I was a kid and I'm not going to let somebody try to make me stop liking him because they think he's ugly or a homosexuall or a pedophile. I don't find him ugly. I still consider him cute. (But I do like the skinny, pale types--MJ, Prince, etc.) I don't beleive the hype. I just go with my gut and what I beleive in. And I belvieve that Michael is a great, grand artist and I feel bad for people who don't give him or his music a chance. Because they're missing out. Michael Jackson is 49 years old and can still shake it like he did when he was 29.  :D (Though I miss the leather jackets and trousers! LOL!) I mean if Michael conformed to what people think he should do, he'd be inGary, Indiana working a steel mill like his father did back before he got famous!

@Bookmistress:

Beleive it or not, I've actually seen crowns larger than that one. LOL.
And as far as violence in pageants go, I haven't expierienced any myself because I try to keep to myself and stay with my friends at a pageant. You just have to watch your back, because some people go to pageants just win and are ruthless about it. If you see me onstage, beleive me, I have two of my friends hanging around watching my clothing and stuff. I don't worry about make-up because I always use a make up artist at pageants.

It is sad. If I ever do have a daughter, I'd like to share pageants with her. And not all pageants are ugly like that. It's just that some parents get caught up in it. Now parents arguing at kids always happen. My nother never did, but I remember one pageant I did when I was about 10. A little girl had slipped and fell while dancing the macarena (yeah it was back them when that dance was hot) and her mother started screaming at her from the audience.

She was escorted out.  :( The little girl was so embarresed and I felt bad for her. I saw her recently at the mall and she's quit pageants, and told me she was in school to be a veteranerian.

Thanks for the questions guys! I appreciate them! Please ask me!

@Bookmistress:

Yeah I watched Miss America: Reality Check. I don't know how I feel about it. I don't really get it. I think that the Miss America pageant/organization is fine just they way it is and I think all the contestants I saw looked perfectly fine. In my opinion, they don't need a make over. They all looked pretty and intelligent. (And I compete with girls that look just like them and I look just like them as far as make up and hair goes. LOL. A lot of make up and big hair. That's what wins in these parts. You don't mess with a winning combination.  ;) )

I've never really watched the 70s episodes of Best of Soul Train, lol. But I might give a few episodes a look see.  ;D

@Howard:

Michael Jackson was on Soul Train four times. Once in 1972, once in 1973 and twice in 1974, all as part of The Jackson Five.
I actually have a photo of The Jackson Five on Soul Train in a book about him, but I can't locate the book at the moment. I'll scan it it in and post it when I do locate the photo. But I did find a nice one of all the brothers together.

@Howard: I probably missed that 1983 one. Thanks for pointing that out.

@Everyone:

I was hanging out with a friend of mine and we were looking at pics of MJ on one of his websites and I found a pic from an interesting performance.

September 7, 2001 Madison Square Garden, NYC.  ;)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/invincible/msg/twymmf/024.jpg

Michael Jackson and Britney Spears performed MJ's hit "The Way You Make Me Feel" as a duet.

I think that it's just kind of amazing how the conversation beween me and my friends have changed since this performance first aired. When it first aired, my friend and I were making fun of the way Michael performed at the end. (True to the original video, Mike and some men dressed as hoodlums danced around, ending with Michael pulling his shirt open and screaming.) And we copied that scream for years.
Now none of us even watch this performance because of...well you know. The way Ms. Spears is behaving. I personally haven't watched the MJ/BS version in a year and now prefer the version of the song performed on September 10, 2001:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/invincible/msg/twymmf/069.jpg

Michael performed the song as a solo, and I haven't ever seen a duet version of it, outside the version with Britney Spears.

Just kind of wanted to toss an MJ story in there. I have TONS of funny ones if you want to hear those.  ;D

Hi Howard!

Actually, there was a rumour around 1988-1989 near the end of the "Bad" World tour saying that Michael would be retiring from the business. (at the ripe "old" age of 30! :o)

Michael on the "Bad" World Tour in my fave ensemble.   http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/09/scream.gif
(Also my fave MJ tour, period.)

And that "retirement" lasted a good two years until Mr. Jackson released the "Dangerous" album and went on tour again. I personally think Michael "retired" so that he could build Neverland. He bought it in May of 1988 and he seemed convientlely disappear until the amusement park and animal habitat was constructed.  ;D

AND BREAKING MJ NEWS: Michael is going to be honored at the BET Awards next month for the Silver Anniversay of the Thriller Album!   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Aaow!

Please ask more MJ and Beauty Pageant questions.  ;D

Hi Howard.

I love "Bad". Everything about it was awesome, the music, the videos, the tour--especially the tour. I have a few "Bad" tour posters and shots and stuff. 

Mike looked good. I always call "Bad" Michael's era where he was like a "PG" version of Prince.  ;D

Hi Howard!

Michael couldn't change his name to a symbol mainly because I beleive people would say he's trying to copy Prince. 

A lot people are still claiming that Michael ripped off the opening riff of "1999" for the opening of "Thriller".  ::)

Please ask more questions. Make them fun--and funky. ;)

Hi Everyone!

@ Bookmistress: Michael does write and produce alot of his material. For instance, he wrote his hit "Beat It" by himself.  He wrote "Black or White", "Heal the World"--most of his tunes that deal with equality and harmony. And Michael's done a heap of "variety" shows. I never saw the Seasame Street episode because (1) I wasn't born then lol and (2) I never watched Seasame Street as a kid. But it's cool that he did do Seasame Street back in the day. The picture of Michael with Oscar with the afro is just darling. He was so cute as a teen/young adult. And I love the touch of the black socks with the brown loafers!  ;D

@Howard: Thanks for suggesting the afro, I'm glad Bookmistress found that pic!  ;)

@Philip: Thanks for finding the Youtube vid. I guess you can find everything on there. LOL!

And someone mentioned that Michael didn't do the Muppet Show. I'm not sure if Mike did the Muppet Show, but I found a few interesting photos of Michael from the late 70s.

Hi Guys!  ;D

@Howard: What happened to the afro? Well the 70s became the 80s and discovered the Jherri Kurl.  ;D Then when that played out Michael went for the straight locks. (Most of us fans miss the "bad" look: long wispy curls.) ;) It's weird, I can always place a date on a picture (the year) by the looks of Michael's hair.

@Robby: My favorite MJ album cover is the "Bad" album. It was the first album my mother ever bought for me by Michael and it's always been my favorite album. (I actually passed up "Thriller" for "Bad" because at the time I didn't realize that the man on both covers was the same person! I do now and feel silly that I didn't recognize that when I was 10.)

http://www.michaeljacksonforsale.com/picture/CD-Album-Bad.JPG

I also adore the "Blood on the Dance Floor" cover.

http://www.michaeljacksonforsale.com/picture/CD-Album-Blood-On-The-Dance.JPG

The thing I love is that some of the album covers differ by country and it's always interesting to see what the others look like. The above 2  are my fave  USA covers.

Hey Howard.

Why does the picture of Michael and ET freak you out? I find the picture to be very endearing actually. (I also have it on my wall, it appeared on the cover of the December 1982 issue of Ebony Magazine.)

I think the photo of them makes perfect sense. Michael is quite misunderstood like ET was in the movie and both seem not of this earth. (I mean that in the sincerest way possible.)  :)

But I guess I expect the "unusual" from Michael. I like quirky people. I mean Michael has a zoo and amusement park and disney version of the Pirates of the Carribean ride in his backyard. I'd think it would freak me out more if he DIDN'T have a photo of himself with ET.

But, if the photo makes you uncomefortable, maybe one of these'll put you at ease:

Heya Howard,

As far as I know, Bubbles the chimp is living in an animal sanctuary, and no longer with Michael Jackson full time. Bubbles is kinda old for a chimp, he's like 25 years old. I don't know the life expectancy for a chimpanzee, but 25 years is old. I liked Bubbles. I once had a Beanie Baby monkey that I named Suds (after Bubbles) for my MJ doll when I was younger. I have no idea where Suds is now. LOL  ;D I'm silly.

Hi Guys!  ;)

@Philip: Chimps can live to over fifty? Gosh! Can you really imagine a 75 year old Michael still toting Bubbles around?  ??? Good God. Thanks for the info, though. I think at one time Michael actually had a female chimp too, but I can't remember her name. (She wore little earrings and stuff too! ) I'll have to find the tape of Joe Jackson's birthday party because I think he named her too.  :)

@Howard: As cliche as it sounds, Michael's favorite video is Thriller. He likes it because it was so innovative and even 24 years later is still groundbreaking. (Dec 2, 2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the video)

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 01/25/08 at 5:35 pm

Hey Howard,

The Jackson Five left Motown Records in 1976 because Joseph, and the rest of the Jacksons felt that they had no creative control over thier careers or music. The Jackson five moved CBS/Epic records, but Jermaine stayed behind at Motow because at the time, he was married to Berry Gordy's daugher Hazel, and was trying to pursue a solo career. The Jackson Five had to give up thier name because Motown owned the name and rights and logos  and changed thier  name to The Jacksons, replacing Jermaine with Randy. (Also in the late 80s, under the The Jacksons name, Tito, Randy, Jackie and Marlon released an album called 2300 Jackson Street.)

Now they are just called "The Jacksons" whenever they perform whether it's five or all six brothers performing.

Hi Y'all!

@Bookmistress:
--My favorite Jackson 5 song is a toss between Dancing Machine and Cinderella Stay Awhile. I play those songs when I'm in a 70s mood.  ;)
--I have seen clips from the cartoon on Youtube and the variety show on a Michael Jackson video site. I like the variety show better. Mike was so cute.
--Actually, the voices of the Jackson Five cartoon charaters weren't performed by the Jacksons. Other little boys voiced the parts. The only time you hear the actual Jacksons voices is in musical numbers.
--I hope I can remember this correctly, Michael Jackson has known Vincent Price since he was a kid (said Vinny scared him then) but when the time came around for Thriller to be recorded and the "rap" inserted, Michael instantly thought of Vincent. He did have a very scary voice.  :)
--It's Rockwell who did "Somebody's Watching Me." And Rockwell is one of Berry Gordy's sons and for a while he and Michael were semi-related since Jermaine was married to Rockwell's (real name: Kenneth) sister Hazel. And little known fact, both Michael and Jermaine sing backup on "Somebody's Watching Me". I love that song, and the video. I like to think of it as a low budget version of Thriller.


@Howard: Um, I don't know. I guess synthesizers and drum machines and things of the sort provided a "cooler" sound to the music. I like ths sound of nearly all the songs from the 80s I've heard. But I do appreciate hearing a real instrument every now and then. Prince once said that anyone can record and manipulate a sound, but it takes real talent to create it.

Thanks for the questions!
Please send more when you get a chance!

That's cute, but I doubt that Michael will ever work with Pepsi again. (The parted ways in 1993). But I'm sure it'll probably be an ad for the Thriller 25 set or something like that. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

@Bookmistress: She looked nice, but I was rooting for Miss Texas (the home team) and Miss Washington. But I'm happy for the lady that won. The show was nice. (But I do kind of miss the old way the show was conducted.) Feathered hair rocks!

Other interesting Thriller film facts:

All the clothing for the dancing zombies were bought at the Salvation Army and ripped with razor blades and wetted down with water to give an "aged" effect.

Rick Baker, the Thriller make up artist, makes a cameo in the video as a zombie. (During Vincent Price's rap, he's the zombie emerging from the masoleum.

Thriller is insipired by the film An American Werewolf in London.

All of the posters surrounding the theather that Michael and Ola exit in the beginning of the film have a bunch of Vincent Price movie posters on display.

Ola Ray, prior to being in the Thriller film was a model for Playboy Magazine.

At the time of it's release, Thriller was the most expensive music video to date, costing over a million dollars to create.

Hi Guys ! ;)

@Philip: That pic wasn't intended to show it was a double of the pic above it. And yes, both were directed by Mr. Landis. (He also directed Michael's 1991 Black or White film)

@Howard: Thank you, and you made Michael Jackson a wrestler? (For some reason I just got a vision of him and The Rock fighting, LOL!) But I like the name of his finisher. Sounds cool.

@Chatterbox: I like Michael (of course) and Marlon the best. Both were so cute. I like all the Jacksons pretty much, so I don't dislike anyone. Michael has said that some of his cousin's on his father's side have Vitiligo. I'm not sure that Latoya has Vitiligoand I can't say. I can just say that she does bear a striking remblence to Michael.

@Bookmistress: You can try Googling Ola. I don't think there's that much info around.

Thanks for the questions and please post more! Thank you.  ;D

@Howard: I don't mind most MJ parodies as long as they're not viscious. It pisses me off when they're just plain mean about Michael. They don't have to be evil to get laughs.

@Philip: No, as far as I know Michael still owns the estate.  ;D

@Bookmistress: Gosh, I know Mike did a lot of variety shows back in the day, but I don't think he's done any TV spots in decades. Sorry.  :(

@Chatterbox: I've seen this movie many times and I love it. I think it;s the most accurate account of the MJ/Jacksons story because someone was actually smart enough to get the Jacksons involved in the production. (Jermaine's son, Jermaine Jr, played his father as a teen in the movie) Its a good movie. 8)

I have heard that Michael's brother Tito was supposed to get a reality show, but I don't know what the status on it is. Jermaine was on Big Brother in the UK and Latoya was on one about celebs being policemen. It was nice.

@Bill: Gosh Bill, I'll try to answer them for you.

Album: Thriller--because it is his crowning achievement as an artist.

Song: Ben--it was his first solo hit as a jkid when he was 14. (plus he loved seeing his name in the credits at the end of the movie)

Video: Thriller--because it was an innovative and groundbreaking film.

Era: J-5/Jacksons--because he was able to spend time with his brothers and they are close and he loves them.

He said that sometimes he'll look back over tapes of performances *gasp* and say, "Did I really do that?" I like the crotch grab. I don't do it--it's a man's thing--but I like it when Michael tries to be avant garde. LOL. It's his cute little attempt at being sexy. And alot of the fans like it.

Hi Guys!  :)

@Howard: It looked to me like he had to use the bathroom really badly. LOL. (I didn't pick the photo, a friend did.)  ::)

@Philip: I'm not sure as to what the official name of that emsemble is, but us fans just know it as the HIStory tour outfit. It's like a metallic-y, shimmery version of his military style outfits. It's cool. I like it and am trying to create a pageant outfit based on it.

@Philip and Howard: This picture was not taken in 1987. It was taken ten years later in 1997. I know because I've studied Michael's outfits for years. In 1987, Michael was on the Bad World Tour and basically wore black, and leather, and chains and that sort of thing. This is from the HIStory World tour, and I beleive he was mimicing the outfit on the statue of him on the cover of the HIStory album. (Darn good album too!) As far as the hair goes, after a stint of straight hair, and short hair, by 1997, Michael had returned to the long curly locks. (I flipped when I saw it short for the first time) (My friends call it a strange talent I have, because I can look at ANY photo of Michael and tell you what year it's from. Go ahead, try me!) And his hair should be thinner, I mean, Mike is moonwalking close to 50. LOL.  ;)

HIStory Tour Outfit:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/history/tour/scream_tdcau_itc/001.jpg
This is from the opening sequence where Michael does a medley of Scream/They Don't Care About Us.

Bad Tour Outfit:

During the opening number of Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' with his two back up singers/dancers. (Eddie Garcia--just barely on camera and the late Dominic Lucero in the red.)


@Bookmistress: Yes, in the Martin Bashir interview, Michael said that he had wanted to adopt a boy and a girl from each continent. I don't know if he still wants to do that, but he shoudl hurry, because Angelina Jolie is adopting them all! LOL. (Small joke, I love Angie!) But really, all joking aside, I think it would be great. There's tons of space at Neverland, and it would just be great. And Michael's kids are growing up. His oldest, Prince, just turned eleven on the 13th.

Please ask more questions! This is fun! And really, try me on the pictures.

Hi Guys!  ;)

@Philip: I've heard that the outfit for Michael was made from spandex. (ALOT of female fans like the gold pants LOL.) But if the outfit was recreated, it might be reworked for a little girl. (Not for me)  You know, just use the color shceme, things along that line. It's being discussed.  :)

@Howard: I think so. I mean, the older Michael gets, the more potential there is for him to  release new music and things like that. Already in my town, you can't find a Thriller 25 anywhere. Every place is selling out. (I got mine though!) It seems like a good thing that people are still interested in Michael and what he's about even though alot of his fans weren't born in his heyday. Michael has staying power and I'm happy.  :D

@Bill: I don't know how Michael feels about her. I mean Madonna has changed alot since the old days. I mean she's a mother, an authour, into Kaballah, and just a different person than she was then! She doesn't even speak the same! LOL. I think Michael still respects her as a fellow artist, but it's not like they're BFFs Forever. And yes, Madonna is the Mystery Girl on "In the Closet" Why Michael got Naomi Campbell for the video is beyond me, but I like the vid and Mike looks cute in it.

Hi Guys!

@Howard: Michael Jackson is almost 50 years old. (It feels so weird to say that. He's perpetually 30 to me! LOL!) But I'm sure that he does a little maintinence here and there. I can't imagine him with grey hair. It foreign to me to see him with a beard! LOL!

@Philip: It's okay. Don't feel overwhelmed.  :) But just think about it, all that gold and silver would be a bit much on a gril who's a foot shorter and about fifty pounds smaller than Michael Jackson.  ;D

@Howard: Yes! I've heard that Michael likes the chicken from KFC. (That's how he filled out so quick after his trial.  ;D) I know he's supposed to be a vegetarian, but that's Mike, he can change his mind if he wants to.  ;)

@Bill: Yes, Michael released a movie in 1988 called Moonwalker. The movie was a mix of things. It contains the 88 Pepsi commercial did where Michael sings "You're a Whole New Generation" to the Bad song tune. And it has concert footage of him on the Bad World tour, a retrospective of the first 25 years of his career and accomplishments, an all child version of the Bad video--called Badder--and the long form version of the Smooth Criminal video. And a live version of him performing Come Together.
The movie was realsed on VHS (and later DVD) world-wide with a theatrical release in Japan.

http://www.villagevoice.com/blogs/statusainthood/moonwalker.jpg

I've enjoyed this movie since I was twelve and rented it an obscene amount of times. Then I just bought my own copy! LOL! I love it. The Bad Tour is my fave and this is just phenonmenal. Michael even works in a Prince joke!  ;D

Hey Gang!  ;)

@Phil: I had heard that Michael might play O2, but I didn't know it had anything to do with his birthday. I actually don't want him to do it, because people will just say he's copying Prince and unless Michael dons something purple and some 4-inch heels, I don't think he's copying Prince.  >:( But it would be cool to see what he wears on "tour".

@Howard: That's 3T.

They are Tito's three sons. (l-r TJ, Taj and Taryll) I used to be really into them before I got into Prince, and they were a nice boyband. They don't really sing together much anymore but have really strong following. TJ just recently got married, Taj is currently directing a horror film and Taryll is going solo and actually wrote a song for Hilary Duff's last album. (I don't know which one, because I don't listen to Duff Stuff.) I have all two of thier albums. LOL.

@Bill: That's a lot! Yay!

You Rock My World was his last #1 as far as I know and that was WAY back in 2001. (I still remeber hearing it on the radio for the first time.)

If I had to choose, I'd have to say probably You Are Not Alone, it's such a classic, pure song. It's wonderful and I love it.

Wow...sing or dance. I know either way I answer, I'm gonna upset some fans. LOL. I suppose dancing because no one can dance like Michael Jackson--though Chris Brown imitates him ALOT--and it's one of the things that makes him unique. I mean you can't speak of Michael Jackson without talking about the dancing!

Something I'd like to see Michael do. I've been saying this for years--collaborate with Prince! I don't care what they do, sing together, dance in a video, slap box in the street, just something together. I just want to see the purple world collide with the glittery one and see what comes out of it. Michael and Prince are both spectacular, wonderful artists. The only thing that kept Bad from being a duet was that Prince dislkied the first line of the song and Michael refused to change it. I heard the story straight from Prince's little pouty mouth!

Something I saw Michael do before...gosh. I really wish someone could find another "lost" clip of Michael dancing or singing with James Brown. I always loved watching the two of them together and Michael seemed really, really happy. That and for him to make a comeback.

My all time favorite Michael Jackson moment is what us fans call V-DAY (June 13, 2005) when Michael got vindicated on his trial. That was just such a watershed moment. My best friend and I were floating around on a pink cloud of happiness for a week after the trial. It was surreal. For like a month after the verdict, I kept turning to CNN to watch Michael walk into court, and it took the longest for me to realize, it was over. LOL. We still laugh about how we reacted. I was running circles around my house screaming, and she was across town at her house doing the same thing! LOL!

Bubbles is in a pet sanctuary. I keep wondering if Michael will eventually do like Paris Hilton and start toting around a small dog.  ;D

@Phil: Neverland is not going on the auctioning block. Word in the MJ community is a loan is saving it. Besides, I can't imagine Michael living in a house like a...well...like a normal person. I'm used to thinking of a zoo and amusement park in the back yard. LOL. I mean he bought Neverland when I was two, that's all I know, it'll be weird if he just lives in an ordinary house.  :(

This is from a 1977 photo shoot Michael did when he was about 19 years old. He looked so cute.
Rare Fact: A lot of people think that Michael Jackson has had nose surgery done for solely cosmetic reasons, but actually in 1977, Michael had his first nose "job" after falling off stage and breaking his nose.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/invincible/msg/tributes/025.jpg
Michael with his "homeboy" Macauly Culkin. :)  No Michael is not saying the pledge of Alliegance! LOL! If I'm correct, country singer Billy Gillman had just gotten finished singing his rendtion of "Ben" and well, I guess Michael liked it. From 2001. I liked this. (As a side note, does Mac look like Carson Kressly, or is it just me?)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/invincible/msg/tavern/017.jpg
Michael at the Tavern on the Green Restaurant in NYC following the first 30th anniversary concert. I LOVED that jacket on him.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/various/palms_studio/002.jpg
Mr. Jackson at a recording studio in Los Angeles. So he is trying to put together an album.  ;D<--my happy face. Only Michael would go to the studio in a beaded shirt and leather trousers! LOL! I love it.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/invincible/msg/yrmw/020.jpg
Chris Tucker: Shamone man! You ain't bad!
Michael: I am!
(Five minutes later, Chris Tucker's nose had to be extracted from the back of his head after Michael kicked him in the face.)
*I was trying to be funny!  :D*

@Philip: The only way I'd come off of 25 million dollars for anything is if I were dating Prince and he handed me his purple checkbook and said "Let's Go Crazy" and besides, I thought Neverland was worth way more than that. My sources put Neverland in the 8 to 9 figure range.  :)

@Howard: That is kinda funny. Her nose does look like the Scarecrow's (Michael's) I'd hate for my nose to be comapred to a Reeses Cup wrapper! LOL! Poor girl. Hope she straightens up.

Hi Y'all!  :)

@ Howard:  I think that Michael's make up was mostly made of heavy pancake foundation and tinted with greasepaints. But if you look really closely, you'll see his hat is made from an old popcorn box and this his nose (the character's, not Michael's real nose!) is made from the wrapper off a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. (I'd like to smell peanut butter all day!) ;D
It was pretty cool. I heard that it took 4 hours to make Michael up everyday.

@Philip: I've been hearing that rumour for about 2 months. I won't start saving up my money until I see a statement from Michael Jackson confirming his participation. I've been waiting almost thirteen years to see Michael. (I could have seen in 1997, but my mom refused to go to Hawaii to see him!) I want to see him.  ;D And I kinda soubt Michael making a move to the UK. He's holding onto the Neverland Ranch, there is buzzing that he might move back. I don't know. (I'd liek to see him go back.)

Hi Howard!

Yes! Michael celebrates Easter. I'm not sure what he did this year, but I know that at Neverland, there used to be a big egg hunt. I even got an egg hunt from the early 90s on it. (I dunno why I wasn't invited, I was 6 at the time!) It was super cute, Michael with a couple of his nieces and nephews. One of the nephews even broke a raw egg on Michael's head. (And Michael put his hat on over it! LOL!)

I have a very funny story about Neverland. (If it interests anyone). A few years ago, my friend Stacie, and I were in high school together and Stacie loves Michael almost as much as I do. So one day in gym class were hanging on the bleachers and she asked,
"What does it cost to get into Neverland?"
And I was like what?
She asked again.
She thought that since Neverland has it's own amusement park, that Michael would would charge you to go in.
I had to explain that Neverland was a private residence and was free to get into if you were invited. (or snuck past security. LOL)
We still laugh about it now.  :)

Just a little tidbit from my life. LOL.  ;D

What is it about Michael that fascinates you so much?  Do you mind if I ask how old you are?  I think this is such a cool thread, and your enthusiasm about Michael is very cool.  I used to feel the same way about Madonna.  I still love her, but as I've gotten older my fanatic side has kinda faded.  But anyway, back to Michael.  I know he's gotten more bad press than just about anybody on this Earth, and I admittedly tend to have mixed feelings about him from time to time, but deep down he is a big part of my childhood in the 80's because he was just EVERYWHERE and it's cool to see that he still has fans like you.

So that leads me to my question...

What is your favorite Michael moment/song/video/tour/album/picture from the 80's?  Give me an 80's rundown :)

Hi Guys!

@Howard: Depending on the quality of the jacket, and color, it can go anywhere from 200-500+ dollars. (To be honest, I never wanted the red Beat It Jacket, I always wanted the black one!)

@Bill: Wow, you really know how to ask a question man. LOL. What fascinates me about Michael is not only his talent, but the man that he is. Michael Jackson is so incredibly sweet and kind and giving and generous. And in a world like this, you don't ever really see truly nice, caring people. And Michael loves to give. Michael is the Guiness World Record holdier for contributing to the most charirites--sonewhere over a hundred. I mean yes, it's exhilirating to see him moonwalk, or perch so effortlessly on the tips of his toes, but I like who Michael is as a person, not just merely a glittery persona. I love his expression and his way of acting and speaking and dressing. He's so courteous and nice.

I will be 22 in May. (I have been a fan since I was 9)  ;D
And I like Madonna, she's still pretty cool.

Michael 1980's in a Nutshell:

Moment: Sweeping the 1984 Grammy Awards. That was the best and he looked so cute.
Song: State of Shock with Mick Jagger, that song rocks out loud and I HAVE to dance everytime I hear it.
Video: Alot of cats would say "Thriller" but for me, it's all about "Bad". I was so crazy about the album "Bad" when I was a kid. I love how Michael tried to be tougher, like a PG version of Prince. It was great.
Tour/Album: BAD. The costumes were sensational, and the dancing and everything!
Picture: Can I get back to you on that? There's so many to choose from it'll take a while to make a descion. LOL.

Great questions and please ask many more!  ;D

Not sure if this has been asked...Do you think Michael lightened his skin? I have my own opinion. His skin became lighter between "Thriller" an "Bad"...between this time "Prince" became hugely popular...you see where I'm going with this? Anyway, that's always been my opinion. You really can't trust what Michael says after he publicly said he'd only had 2 nose surgery's on the interview with Oprah. Don't get me wrong...There wasn't a bigger MJ fan than I was. I love all his old music up until "Invincible"...that was trash.

Hello Butteball.

Michael Jacskon has a skin condtion called Vitiligo and it destroys the pigmentation in his skin. Michael has been using cosmetics to even his skin out, resullting in it's transluscent, pale color. No, I don't think Michael was trying to compete with Prince. Thriller sold rings around 1999 and Purple Rain. And I like Michael's complexion. It doesn't matter to me really, whether he's darker or fairer skinned, it's his talent I enjoy. And I liked Invincible. LOL.

@Bill: And yeah, I like that pic. Mike is very "skin shy" and very seldom you see him without a top on. (With the exception of a couple of music videos). It's a cool thing. But I like his modesty.

You are right...Doesn't matter what color you are...but if you are asked if you lightened your skin, why lie about it?(I Don't believe the vitiligo crap) I also agree that Thriller sold way more albums than Prince, but by the time Prince hit it big, Thriller was by the way side.

Hi Yall! I see you asked some really interesting questions!

@Butterball: It never actually crossed my mind to be concerned with how much cosmetic surgery Michael has had done. Whether he's had two or twenty nose jobs, I do't care. I accept him as he is, and have moved through his physical changes without batting an eye. I like him just as much in the "Beat It" video as I do the "You Rock My World" video. In my circle of friends, the talk isn't "Did you see how Michael looked?" It's usually, "Did you see what Michael wore?" or "Did you hear that wicked high note he hit?" It doesn't matter. I've been following Michael since 1995. And even as a kid, it didn't bother. I mean if it makes Michael feel better "work" on his appearance, I have no say in it. It's Michael's decision. I'm happy with him. I wouldn't keep buying his albums and posters and tshirt and dolls if I wasn't a pleased fan.

@Howard: That was a rumour. Michael didn't want to freeze himself. Besides at this point in time, it's impossible to freeze a human being and later thaw them them ot and then bring them back to life. If Michael did get cryogenically frozen and thawed, he would be a human Slushies because the composition of his body will have radically changed. (I watch the Discovery Channel alot LOL.) But seriously it's a rumour, and he doesn't own a hyperbaric chamber at his home, either.  ;)

@Bill: In the MJ world, the word is actually "Shamone" LOL. And I say it alot.  (My friends laugh at my MJ impersonation. LOL. But I know alot of look alikes.)

@Butterball: I love that song and the (concert) version of the video. The Bad tour was the stuff!  ;D

@Howard: Michael likes to toss that in there because it shows that's he's feeling the music and what he's singing and he's caught in the moment and it's kind of a like a little chunk of excitement that breaks free and pops onto the record. I like it. The little hiccups and breaths and all. It's neat. (And alot easier to imitate than the screams of Michael violet counterpart.)

Great questions y'all! This was alot of fun! Please feel free to send more! I enjoy this! Ask me some trivia stuff!  :D

Hi Bill!  :)

Gosh, my favorite track from the Dangerous album? They're all so good, it's a really well constructed album, but if I had to choose a favorite track, it would probably be Who Is It. The song is just so sad and haunting and dark and I love it. And the European version of the music video is awesome. (It had a storyline whereas the American version is just a retrospective of Michael's career.) You just don't get to see Michael that deep that often. Alot of the time he's bubbly and happy and jumping around on his toes or Moonwalking, and to see him just slow it down and hear it, it really is amazing.

There's just something special in Michael's voice, he just emotes so well.

Thanks for that question. I love talking about Michael's music.

Hi Guys!

@Bill: I'm glad that you like the song too.  ;) A favorite Michael Jackson lyric. Gosh man. LOL. I have 40 MJ cds to choose from. LOL. But one lyric that immediately popped into my head is from Bad "...If you don't like what I'm saying, then a-won't you slap my face! You know I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone..." I always thought it was funny, because I've never actually seen anyone hit Michael and if the video would have been done as a duet with Prince, I wonder who would have slapped whom?  ;D

@Howard: I love the video. I love all the stars in the video, Eddie Murphy, Iman, Magic Johnson, the guy that played Deebo in the Friday movies. And I really liked Michael's look in the video. Up until I saw the video, I was used to the long curls, and to see it sleeker and straigher was awesome. Plus the video was set in psuedo-Egyptian style palace with "Pharoah Ramses" and I love all things Egyptian (at one time I wanted to be an archeolgist/egyptologist) And I had never really seen anyone do anything like that. It was awesome.  I never get sick of Michael, he's fascinating.

Some stills from the Remember the Time short film:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/dangerous/shortfilms/rtt/007.jpg

I really like how Michael put his own spin on the traditional Egytian ensemble. The only complaint my friends and I have about it is we wonder why Michael wore the golden turtleneck. I mean if he really was in Egypt, during the day, he'd be baking like a Russet Potato. But it does compliment his complexion.  :)

What are the other brothers working on these days or are they just retired?

Hi Howard. (I can always rely on you for an interesting question! LOL!)

None of Michael's brothers are "retired". Mostly all of them at some point in time make money from playing personal engagements.

But from what I hear, Jackie runs his own music label called Jesco Records. His son Siggy (Sigmund Esco, Jr.) is a rapper on the label.

Tito is probabbly most active in music. (After Michael and Janet) In 2003, he released an album and toured around California. I tried extremely hard to get his album, but couldn't get a hold of it. I have both of his son's group 3T's albums. (Pretty good stuff.)

Jermaine has been married five times--even once to his brother Randy's ex-wife!--and has 8 or 9 children. He publicly converted to Islam and is the most vocal in showing his support of Michael. A tasty little tidbit: Jermaine and Randy both have children with the same woman, making their kids cousins and half siblings.

Marlon is the only Jackson to still be married to the same woman. He and his wife Carol have been married almost 33 years. His wife is an ex model and he has done several b-movies since the 1980s including The Counselour. Had a minor hit in 1989 (?) with a song called Baby Tonight. He is CEO of the Black Family Channel and is starting to produce 3D animated films. The man is busy!

For a spell, Randy had his own band that made one album and then split up.  He is now the CEO if Modern Records.

Great question! Please ask more!  ;)

Why did Jermaine leave the group in 1976?  ???

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 04/05/08 at 6:36 pm

Hoo Hoo! Hi Howard!  ;D

Technically, Jermaine did not leave the Jackson Five. They left him. Im 1976, the Jackson Five chose to leave Motown Records in favor of joining CBS/Epic Records because they wanted to have more creative control over thier music. (Most of the J5 music was written by Holland/Dozinger/Holland and 'The Corporation", not the Jacksons) Jermaine, at the time, was married to Berry Gordy's daughter Hazel and stayed with the company under the promise of having a "successful" solo career. And he had a few hits with Daddy's Home, Let's Get Serious and Dynamite. That's basically it in a nutshell.

A little tidbit, as far as I know, Motown Records still owns the name "The Jackson Five" and all the logos too, so if they put together five more guys and called them the Jackson Five, it would turn into a HUGE legal deal. (That's why J5 became The Jacksons)

Please ask more questions.  ;)

Hi Guys!

@Mr. Mister: Be happy I have a sense of humour.  ;) That is my least favorite photograph of Michael Jackson. I hate the "mug" shot. It represents a time in Michael's life that I'm sure all of us fans wished never happened.  But that is a nice touch of them stenciling his face in with large crayons like he's a "color by numbers" drawing.  :) But I've seen Michael without make up, not in photographs, but on tape. In the "Michael Jackson Home Movies" that aired a few years ago, Michael celebrated Christmas with Elizabeth Taylor and he's not wearing make up. (Maybe just eyeliner)  Michael's Vitiligo has left him with quite a bit of discoloration and freckling of his skin, and the make up just evens it out.

@Butterball: I'm not sure as to who does Michael's make up now. About a year after the trial ended he released Karen Faye, and she had been his artist since like 1987.  I mean it's not that much that Michael does. Just a little pancake foundation to even himself out, eyeliner, mascara and maybe some lip balm.  I'm sure he does it up for photo shoots and concerts and things of the lilke, but Michael seems like a low mantinence type of guy. I think perhaps he does his own make up now. I think that the eyeliner is tattooed on, I dunno about the lip liner. I've not seen anything recently of Michael without make up.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/dangerous/various/misc/023.jpg
Michael and Karen, circa 1994.

@Howard: It doesn't frighten me. The only time I was scared of Michael's appearance he had been (alledgely) manhandled by the police and had a baseball sized bruise on his little forearm.  I was just shocked because I had never really seen Michael hurt outside of the Pepsi commercial incident. (But I wasn't born when that happened)

@Bill and Philip:' There is nothing wrong with Michael's face. This is Michael's idea of goin incognito. And the more Michael tries to hide, the more he sticks out.  ;D

Written By: apollonia1986 on 04/08/08 at 7:07 pm

Hi Mr. Mister.

I can't really say when Michael was at his prettiest. Let's examine the eras you mentioned, shall we?

Michael in the Thriller era  (November 20, 1984)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/star/008.jpg
Very cute, but really over done. Michael is wearing alot of blush--alot and wearing a 40 pound embellished jacket. Yes he was a maverick in fashion, but he was also butting heads with Prince who at the same time was styled up like a model in lace and furs and the whole nine. It was a competiton to see who could be whe sparkliest, and who could balance the yin of masculine with the yang of feminine. (But while Prince stripped near naked--you had a good day if you saw MJ's neck! LOL)  He was flossy and glossy, and cute.

Michael in the Bad era (circa 1988)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/bad/photoshoots/misc/003.jpg
Michael had won the record battle with Prince and even by 1988, Prince was tame--I know, shocking--so Michael's look was bit more down played. Yes his skin was fairer and his hair longer, but it took the place that his shiny coats took. While his jackets were still over the top, you could no longer see him from outer space LOL. Michael apearance is softer. Its like he wasn't trying too hard. And I find it wonderful.

Now right now, it looks as though Bad is leading by a mile, but, actually in recent years, Michael has become probably the prettiest I've seen in 10 years or more:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/photoshoots/ebony/001.jpg

Michael Jackson Dember 2007 issue of Ebony magazine. (his 12th cover on the magazine) It was so good, I bought two copies, one to read and one that is framed next to my pageant crowns.

And for Michael Jackson fans, we're defined by the eras that divide us. Almost every fan has an era they love more than the other. (For me it's Bad, my best friend, Dangerous)  And if you want my honest opinion, I think that a true fan goes beyond the flesh and goes for the music and the talent. Sone fans get caught up in the image and forget about the talent, and that's just a pipe dream because the image is as hollow as a rotten tooth. I mean if people went merely on Michael's image, he'd have played out back when he had an afro. Michael's image enhances his talent.  And image is a good thing, but it's not everything, at least not to me.

Wonderful question. Please ask more.  ;)

Yes...I guess it's all about WHEN we first became fans. I keep forgetting you're a touch younger than me.  ;D  I actually went to MJ's concert in Brisbane (in the 90's I think) and was a little dissappointed with the show. He was in great voice and danced well.....some of my favourites were done in a medley and not in their entirety..... :-\\  and I thought the sound engineering was not as good as it should have been also.  But overall...it was still a great experience..  :)

???  Never heard of that one. Wasn't a UK hit.

Possibly THE first record I ever bought for someone else .... was 'The love you save'. Bought that for my 11 year old cousin. Thought I was really cool to get her that, at the time (my choice, was unaware if she like them or not). I had the hots BIG time for her.  No, that's not sick, where in Britain, first cousin marriages are legal. I wanted to marry her one day  ..... she was a stunner (beautiful blue eyed blonde) , and by the time she was 13 ... well developed (not that I would notice  ........  ::)    :-X    :P    ;D ).

Yes ... that Diana Ross UK #1 .... 'I'm still waiting' .... with the lyric 'I remember when, I was 5 and you were 10' ..... had a significant meaning for me ...... as, at 5 years her senior (I was 16  in 1970) ......

Sadly, following a family rift (on my father's side)  in '72 ...... well, I've never seen her since !    :\'(  :\'(

Written By: apollonia1986 on 04/15/08 at 7:02 pm

Hello Woops!

I have several MJ parodies that I like, but I like the ones Weird Al Yankovic did the best because, not only were they side-splittingly hilarious, he actually asked Michael's permission to parody him. Plus, the Fat video was filmed in the same NYC subway as the the original Bad video. Those were really artful and funny.

I also like some of the "In Living Color" parodies too, but my favorite actually isn't an MJ parody per se. It's a play off of Michael Jackson's video "In the Closet" but instead of portraying Michael and Naomi Camplbell like in the video, instead it was "Joe Jackson" trying to beat up "Latoya" I really loive the parody chorus. "There's something about you, La-toya, what makes me want to strangle  y-ou!!" (Instead of "There's something about you baby, that makes me want to give it to you..."  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/03/coolman.gif

One of the best ones I ever saw was on Mad TV and "Michael" gets sent to boot camp for something, but he's in the barracks, holding a stuffed monkey and singing "Ben" I laughed until I almost puked, it was so funny!

I like the purely funny ones. And the tasteful ones.  8)

Did you see the commercials for the Miss USA pageant?  It seemed like they were ridiculing their own contestants - showing where one lady slipped and fell when she was in the Miss Universe pageant and they highlighted the other girl that gave a stupid answer to the interview question.  It was a weird advertising gimmick if you ask me, but I guess they were trying to attract the people that like to see people make fools of themselves so they can ridicule them.

But I can't beleive that they shoed highlights of mishaps. That's not very, um, professional. Yes, accidents do happen, but I'd really hate for it to be replayed over and over!  :-[

Hi again Apollonia. I think Michael hits the ripe old age of 50 this year. That' right  FIVE-ZERO !!!! (along with .... MAD-DONNA !). Makes you feel old, don't it (?) when THESE people are getting up there ....

Do you know if he's got anything special planned? Further, do you think he's got anymore FRESH hits left in him ... or is his day over ?

Hi Guys!

@Mr. Mister: It doesn't really make me feel old. I'm only 21. (I'll be 22 in exactly 3 weeks!) And I don't consider Michael or Madonna or that whole crop old at all. They're just mature and a hell of a lit better than these cookie cutter wannabes coming out of hollywood by the dozen! I suppose that Michael might have a party or something like that. I mean I'm sure he wouldn't let 50 go by with out marking it in someway and yes I'm sure he has a few hits left in him. The remixes from Thriller 25 are selling like hotcakes.  ("I like the way he rock, the way he rock!...")

@Howard: Mike with a fro now? It's like a dog walking on it's hind legs, it'll be unnatural. I like Mikey as is!  ;)

@Butterball: I agree, the fro is behind Mike. I'm sure he gets a fro right before his stylist goes after him with a flat iron.  ;D But like I  said, I like his hair straight. It's more flattering. He's so tall and thin, he'd look like a human Q-Tip with an afro.  ::)

A question about Michael Jackson:  Why doesn't Michael Jackson shave his face closer before putting on foundation?  The stubble/foundation look is nasty. 

Speaking of nasty, how often do Michael and Janet Jackson speak?  Are they very close?


A question about Beauty Pageants:  How many hours per day do you have to practice smiling to get the smile just right?  Not too much teeth, not too much cheek.

Hi Y'all!  ;)

@Howard:  No Michaels' award is not broken! It's made like that on purpose. It kind of makes me think of the Phantom of the Opera mask. I love it.

@Midnite: I don't exactly think that the reason Michael's foundation looks uneven is because of his stubble. I just think that maybe he might be wearing a shade of foundation that isn't quite matched to his skin tone. Between 1987 and maybe 1993, Michael's complexion changed quite drastcally, and I'm sure it was hard to keep up with the change.  :(

Michael and Janet, from what I've heard speak to each other a few times a week. They are extremely close. But they both have demanding schedules and the Jacksons are a working family, so it is hard to get together at each other's house, and you know just hang and watch a ballgame. LOL.  ;) But I've heard Michael say that he and various members of his family set aside time to spend together.

And as far smiling go, to be honest, if you practice it too much, the smile will be really still and unnatural looking, and from what I've learned is that judges like to see girls/women with natural smiles. The way I get my natural smile, and it's really silly, I've been doing it for years. When I look at the judges, I pretend that Michael Jackson is standing right behind them, and just pretend that I'm smiling at him.
And I wouldn't want to come off as fake to Michael, so I appear happy and bubbly to the judges. And I have a couple of little girls (they're my mom's friend's daughters) that I semi-coach, and I tell them the same thing, "Pretend your favorite singer is behind the jusges and smile at him or her."  (They smile at Prince and Zac Efron! LOL!)

Hi Howard!

Michael's age has never interfered with his talent before and there are plenty of singers who are over 50 that still sound great. Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, etc. And I think that Michael will continue to sing well.  ;)

Does Michael have any favorite actors or movies?

Does Michael have any favorite artists or songs?

What are Michael's favorite songs of his own?  favorite videos?

Does he still consider himself very shy?

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Hi Bookmistress!

Excellent questions!

Michael loves the actors of old Hollywood like Fred astaire and Ginger Rogers, Gregory Peck, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren. (many of them are his friends). Michael loves the old musicals like "Road to Utopia", "The Wizard of Oz" If it it hasn't changed, Mike's two favorite movies are ET: The Extraterrestrail and The Elephant Man. (He claims he identifies very much with both characters.) And NO Michael doesn't own the Elephant Man's (John Merrick's) bones! LOL!  ;)

Michael loves great singers in general. Everyone from the late James Brown and late Jackie Wilson to current acts like Beyonce and Chris Brown. (I actually don't really care for Chris myself, but if Mike likes him, he must be okay. LOL.) He just likes people who exude a great amount of talent and charisma. My friends and I are still waiting for one of Michael's children to become an entertainer. (I have my money on Paris.  :) ) But back on topic, I know Michael likes old show tunes (like Up Up and Away) old Beatles songs, and even some of the rap music out today. I've heard talk that Michael can rap, but I've neve rheard him do it. LOL. He came very close to it on one of his songs though!

Mike's favorite songs of himself are "Ben" "Billie Jean" (he owes everything to "Billie Jean!") "Dancing Machine". "The Lost Children", "Childhood"  I think that Michael likes pretty much all of his songs. I know that Michael is quite a perfectionist and he likes for everything to be just right before he releases it. (There is actuaslly a story that the hit song "Thriller" almost didn't get released because Michael didnt' like the arangement of it, and actually left the recording studio in tears. I'm not sure hwo true it is, but I'm glad he made "Thriller!")

And YES, Michael has described himself hudreds of times as being "painfully shy". I really find Michael's shyness very endearing. I like to hear him get on a microphone and speak in that little falsetto. But if you just look at the way Michael dresses, you kind of see that he's trying to appear more confident than he is. I'm not saying that he's not confident, but he is very very introverted. Michael tries to show power by wearing those glitzy military jackets and the glove. I honestly think that it's Michael's personality that has kept me as a fan. I mean Michael is the best entertainer in the world and he does seem real and almost approachable. He could be a total male diva and have a head the size of the Goodyear blimp, but he doesn't. He's very grounded and sweet and generous. I didn't intend for this answer to be so long, but after almost 13 of being a Michael Jackson fan, I have thought about more than "How does he stand on his toes for so long! LOL)

Well great questions!  Thank you!!!  Please ask more!

Has Michael ever said publically whether he is grateful that he started his career so young (not sure how old he was when he started but he was just a little kid.)  Or would he maybe have preferred to have had a somewhat normal childhood and started singing publically later in his mid-late teens?

How does he feel about his kids and showbiz?  Would he like them to take a similar path?  How old are the kids now?  I think you already said, but I'm too lazy to go back and read the other pages.  ;D

Has he ever contacted any of the online fan sites himself?

Had he known (somehow) that Martin Bashire would portray him so badly, do you suppose he wouldn't have been so open about his life?  I really think it was a good documentary up until they started getting nasty about him, then of course, the court drama that ensued.

Is he godfather to any celebrity children?  I think I read something about Liz Taylor being godmother to one of his children.  Who is Michael's godparents (if he has any)?

Hi Y'all!

@Bookmistress: Michael hasn't directly put it in those words. I've heard Michael make dozens of speeches over the years, and yes, he is grateful to have had such a long and successful career, but he does regret that he wasn't able to do the things that normal children are able to do. I remember hearing Michael tell someone that the Mototwn Recording studio was across the street from a park and when he was a child he wanted to so badly to play ewith the other children, but couldn't. And he said he'd cry and cry.  :( (Michael is one of only 2 celebrities that have actually made me cry speaking about his childhood. Belevie it or not, the other is Prince.) Though Michael is sad about missing out on playing with other children as a child, he is thankful for the knowledge and oppourtunites he was presented with as a child in the music business. Michael is so talented, that I think he would have made a hit whether he started at 9 or 19.  :) I just feel bad that he missed out. But I feel for him and understand where he's coming from. Our childhoods are a little similar.  :)

Michael I trhink would like to see his kids get into the music industry, but he wants them to wait until they're in thier late teens at least. He wants them to expierience being kids. Michael's children are.
Prince-Michael--11
Paris--8 (as of April 4)
Blanket--5

His babies are growing up! My friends and I are betting that he'll start to adopt a bunch of kids like Angelina Jolie and Madonna has. And I think he should!

I'm not really sure about online fanpages. I know that his brothers were really active in the groups during the trial--though none of them dropped by my websites!  >:( --but I know back in the day of handwritten letter fanclubs, Michael used to write back and personally autograph items and even invite fans to his house! (Oh, if this were 1988 again!)

Martin Bashir is an x-rated term in the MJ community. Fans just don't have a very nice view about him. (And I'm being very cordial in my reference of him right now.) ::) The thing about the Living With MJ interview is Michael felt that Martin was his friend. He lugged Martin Bashir around for 8 months filming this documentary and he thought that Martin was his friend and he was lulled into thinking that Martin would help him kind of rebuild his image by tearing down the walls that surrounded him. Now yes, it is probably the most in depth interview Michael has ever granted and I'll bet you a steak dinner it'll never happen again. I just hate that Martin in the end kind of twisted Michael's words around and made him look like a freak and a pedophile and just bad. I think I took the trial and things like that pretty well I suppose, I mean I've learned that alot of people try to take advantage of Michael and his wealth and try to hurt him. My best friend was a mess over the trial, but I was mostly the support system for my group of friends. (And during the trial, membership in my MJ club actually spiked rather than fell.) The celebrity not only has to have a thick skin, his fans do too.
I got alot of hell from the trial--pardon the expression--because everyone I knew, knew that I liked Michael, but eventually left me alone because they saw they couldn't bother me.
I just kinda wish Michael could be as tough as some of his fans are. And I know he's a sensetive person. I don't mean to drag on for so long, lol, but the Bashir thing is something that should be spoken about.
Should that kind of offer arise again, I hope that Michael does be more careful and make full use of the term, "NO COMMENT".  :)

I once heard Michael say that he was godfather to Barry Gibb's son--actually named Michael--and he's also Nicole Richie's godfather. (Along with Prince which I'm sure made for an interesting childhood!) Elizabeth Taylor and Macauly Culkin are the godparents to all of Michael's children. (Mac was actually only 17 when he was dubbed Prince-Michael's godfather!)  I don't know who Michael's godparent's are. I'll probably have to go back into my video archives and see if anything is said about that.

@Mr. Mister: I guess it would be kind of cool for Michael to duet with Mr. Mister. But I don't see him dueting anytime soon. I want to see Michael do an album by himself. No duets--not even with Janet--just him. The fans REALLY want that! LOL!

Hey Y'all!

@ Mr. Mister: Karma for that hilarious montage of MJ song titles. I loved it. Really funny. And what exactly do you want me to tell you about the trial? It'll be all day just describing all the funky suits Michael wore to court.  ;D

@Philip: I was really hounding the television during the trial. I had to see what he was wearing everyday, and if he looked healthyor not. (He got really thin during the end of trial) How the fans reacted. Then I was chatting with fans discussing Michael's fashion choice and how it compared with what he wore the day before, and how the defense was working and how underhanded the prosecutuon was. And then I was watching the reenactments every afternoon and spreading the wortd around to the fans who were out of the loop. It was really painful at times to watch, but out of respect and support of Michael, I did, and I was running around the neighborhood when the verdict came in!

@Howard: Michael Jackson? Last in jail? Not trying to be a pessimist, but no. Michael is accustomed to a certain glittery, soft lifestlye and for him to be tossed out of that into jail with criminals, lord help him. Actually in the MJ commnity, there was a sect of fans that were truly, truly afraid that if Michael went to jail, he would commit suicide while incarcerated. I never beleived that bruhaha. I'm just glad everything kind of fell in Michael's favor. I don't know what it would have been like if Michael had gone to jail. A lot of us joked he could be a rapper when he got out, but mostly we hoped they're be no jail. When he got held the first time, they roughed him up something fierce:

http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/1272/brasmjyb4.jpg

Now this came from him just being in holding with handcuffs that were too tight. Michael alleges that while he was in holding, he had to use the restrroom--a normal request of any man--and that the bathroom he was allowed to use had, um, human excrement smeared all over the walls and as Michael used the bathroom, people were outside asking him "Is the smell okay? You like the smell Michael? Hmm? You like that?" I heard him tell this to an interviewer from 60 Minutes. I have it on tape, but refuse to watch it anymore because it's just too sad. I can't prove yey or nay, but if it did happen, poor Michael.  :(

@Philip: No, I wasn't able to go to court. My mother wouldn't give me the 300 dollars to ride the Greyhound bus to see him! And it was fan heaven over there. At any given time there were at least three look alikes there. (And I know five that went!) My friends and I were up in arms because we wanted to go and support Michael and none of us could go!  >:( But it's okay, I'll see him someday.

But most of his dates I know are Brooke Shields--she went to the 84 and 93 Grammy awards--and actually Mike's date for the 88 Grammys were Tatiana (girl in the way you make me feel vid) and mostly the rest are Elizabeth Taylor. And of course I was his date to all of them--sitting on my couch rooting for him.  ;D

Michael set the record in 1984. He won 8 Grammys in one night, I think only Carlos Santana has tied that record. If Mike would have won everything he was nominated for, he'd have gotten 12 awards.  ;) I love the Grammys. It's so cool.  :)

And Michael can swim. I've seen him swimming in his own pool and playing around at waterparks. He can swim. He looks cute in swim shorts too. He doesn't swim too much now because of his skin. But he does swim every now and then.  ;)

@Mr. Mister: I see you've been reading the National Enquirer.  ;D That whole hyperbaric deal was a hoax. It was a staged photograph. My mother was in a hperbaric chanber and she had to put on scrubs. You can't go into it with jeans and t-shirt llike Mike had on. That was staged. And wehenever Michael does go to Heaven, he will be put away ALONE. The elephant man's bones are on display in England and that's where they're going to stay. 

@Howard: Of course that hurt.  :( Michael is a slim man and they just kinda threw him around like a rag doll.

@Phil and Howard: Yes. Mike wore pjs to court because he had hurt his back and couldn't really fit into a regular suit. Poor dear.  :(

I'm glad he's better now.

Wonderful questions guys! Please ask more! I've been reviewing my MJ tapes, please ask more questions! The more the better. LOL!  ;D

I think he took Madonna as a date to some awards show (I forget which) and I think he also took Emmanuel Lewis (who played in an 80s show called "Webster") as a date to somewhere.  I kinda recall some pictures of him and Corey Feldman being taken together (but I don't know if it was at an awards thing or just some charity event.)  (Corey did a pretty cool rendition of Michael's dance moves in the movie "Dream a little dream" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYKmRi0t3Uo and again in "Dream a little dream 2" (the sequel)

Hi Bookmistress:

Michael took Madonna to the Academy Awards in 1991. You had asked about the Grammys sos I didn't think of that.  ;) Michael took Manny to the Grammys in 1984 with Brooke Shields and also the 1984 American Music Awards.  ;D And as for Corey Feldman, I didn't really dig what he did in the late 80s. I know he liked Michael alot, but the dressing like him was a little bit over the top. He's a nice actor though.  :)

A question about Michael Jackson:  Why doesn't Michael Jackson shave his face closer before putting on foundation?  The stubble/foundation look is nasty. 

Speaking of nasty, how often do Michael and Janet Jackson speak?  Are they very close?


A question about Beauty Pageants:  How many hours per day do you have to practice smiling to get the smile just right?  Not too much teeth, not too much cheek.


Can someone assist with these questions?  Thank you in advance for the courtesy.

Hi Everyone!

@Midnite, I'm not quitew sure what you're asking, but I already answered that question. Mike's foundation didn't really match his skin back in the day.  :)

@Mr. Mister: Like I said, be happy I have a sense of humour.  ;)  LOL.

@Howard: Michael with a beard and a goatee will look like this:

http://i32.tinypic.com/e7mcsn.jpg
My theory is if Michael lets a goatee and all that grow in, he'll look like Prince. (Which isn't such a bad thing in my book.  ;D I like'em both.)

@Bookmistress: I like Brooke's outfit in the second pic best.  ;D

Please ask more questions guys! I'm looking forward to asnwering them!  8)

Hey Butterball!

Actually in 1984, Emmanuel was 13 years old. (According to imdb.com, Manny was born in 1971) If I was 13, Michael could tote me around until his arm fell off. If I were 19, I might have to decline. (I'm almost 22!)  ;D

Hi Y'all!

I see plenty of interesting questions:

@Mr. Mister:

I think the only person who knows truly everything about Michael Jackson is Michael Jackson. (and maybe Michael's mother, Miss Katherine.)

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and go with the Number 51 bus. (I'm jiving you, I don't really know! LOL! I don't think Michael had EVER ridden a bus.)

He had a shortstack of pancakes and a cup of pulp free orange juice.  ;D With maple syrup of course. And extra crispy bacon.

I've heard that Michael wears a size 8 shoe. (I'm being serious now.)

I've only seen Michael in white underwear. When he zipped his pants in the Black or White video, his skivvies were white, and when his pants ripped during the song live in New York, they were white. So I'm going with white.  ;)

I don't know if Michael is on this site under an alias, but if he is, I wish the man would PM me!  ;D The closest I've ever gotten to talking to Michael Jackson is conversing with a tribute artist that was his double in one of hios music videos. I'd like to talk to the real man. (not that the tribute artist isn't a nice guy. He is.  :) )

If Mike reads this post, he'll be laughing.  8)

On the night of May 5, 2007, Michael was out buying me a birthday gift. My 21st birthday was May 8th.,  ;D LOL.

That's plenty of questions but I always want MORE.  ;D

@Butterball: I'm not Michael Jackson! My name is Tiffeny and I'm just a normal girl. (with an enthusiasm for MJ.)  ;)

@Howard: Hee-Hee. He is. (The good "bad". Not the bad "bad".)  :)

@Robby: I'm sticking to the pancakes theory.  ;)

@Mr. Mister: Yes, his chimp was named Bubbles. I heard that Bubbles lives in an animal conservatory. Michael's pets are with various owners, as Michael isn't currenty residing at Neverland anymore.
I heard that actress Tippi Hedren bought a couple of his girraffes.  :)

Great questions guys. Please send more. And I like the funny ones.  ;D

Hi Y'all!

@Howard: Hi. Yes Michael can drive. I beleive he learned to drive when he was around 21 years old. His then girlfriend Tatum O'Neal literally pushed him into it. I'm nit quite sure what car he drives now. I've heard it's a Rolls Royce. (He always struck me as a Ferrari man though LOL) It's ot really publicized what car he drives. The paprazzi'd be all over him like ants a picnic if they knew what kind of car he drove. My friends and I flip everytime we see a limo though. (Even though Michael is nowhere near my little town in Texas.  >:( )  We know it's not Prince, he has a purple limo.  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/10/tongue3.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/10/tongue3.gif
Nice to dream!

@Robby: Mike ate those pancakes I'm telling you! They're selling the empty bottle of Mrs. Butterworth's on eBay right now.  ;D (joking) I love the opening to "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" too. I don't know why it's not on the Bad album. I heard it on one of his websites and almost fainted. It's so rare to actually hear Michael speak, and it's so lovely.  ;)

@Butterball: I've seen Michael driving a couple of times. I have a clip of Michael driving a Neverland golf cart. But for the most part, he has a driver. I'm sure I've seen Michael drive a car. I suppose spinning the middle of the Teacup Ride at Disnleylad doesn't count?  :( I'll have to look for a clip or a picture of him driving.

@Howard: Mike waiting in the DMV? That place is so aggravating. If he got the star treeatment, he'd probably be in and out in a Moonwalker flash. But if he has to wait like the gneral populationp--which I'm sure he will--he'll be in tears by the time he gets to the desk.  ::) LOL. Maybe that having a driver thing isn't so bad! LOL!

Wonderful questions! Please ask more!

Hey Guys!

Someone had asked if I'd ever seen Michael Jackson driving. It hit me while I was watching some MJ music videos last night. In the very beginning of the long version of the Thriller film, Michael is driving a white 1956 Chevy that runs out of gas. I have 30 MJ videos and that's the only one he drives in. (Unless you want to count him rididng the motor bike in Speed Demon.)

EDIT: Here's a screencap of MJ behind the wheel!. (Steady-Laughing totally rocks!)

Hi Howard.

No, thankfully, Michael has never had an accident. In 1981, though, his younger broher Randy ran his sportscar into a light post and literally shattered both of his legs. For a while, no one knew if he'd be able to walk, but luckily Randy recovered and is walking around just fine now.  ;) I heard that in the early 80s one of Michael's limos caught on fire. Still not sure how it started, but he and Quincy Jones ran out of it before it got out of control.

Thanks for the interesting questions. Please ask more.  ;D

Hey Howard.  ;D

Do you just sit all day and come up with wld questions? LOL.

I beleive that the Jacksons decided on the name The Jacksons because J6 was just too close to J5 and Motown would have dragged through all types of litigation by thier ears over it. Besides if I went to the record store looking for J6, I might end up with an Apollonia 6 album (A6)  ;D

Besides the Jacksons have gone through many incatationt hrough thier albums, some albums have all six Jacksons, some just have Randy, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon. I think the name just makes it easier for them to release music because there's nothing saying it HAS to be six Jacksons singing.

Case in point, the cover of the 2300 Jackson Street album. Neither Marlon nor Michael are on the cover. (Though they appeareed in the video for the titile track.)

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 05/10/08 at 4:56 pm

Hi Y'all!

@Howard: This will be a whole lot easier than it was to cover Prince.  ;D Okay there's about three or four basic hairstyles that Michael has worn over the course of his career.

We all know that in the beginning, Mike wore an afro, which gave way to a short Jherri Kurl (ala Thriller) and then the long curls (like in Bad). For a short spel in 1992, Michael wore his hair straight before returning to the curls. When he married Lisa Marie Presley, he cut his hair quite short and bounced between curls and straight hair on the shorter 'do. For a very very brief moment in 1997 Michael wore a French braid, before the cirls ruled once more. In latter years, Michael has been wearing long straight hair. (I don't really count the short hair in 2001, I didn't really did that that much.)

I can actually identify what year a photo was taken of Michael just by looking at his hair. (And his clothing.  ;) ) *HINT*

@Butterball: Once the ink on the check dries, and Michael owns the hair, it's his, and I count it as a style. How many hair pieces to other celebs wear? LOL. And I don't mind. If other men can wear toupees why can't Mike?  :)

Wonderful questions guys, please send more.

Hey Y'all!  ;)

@Howard: No, I don't think Michael ever had trouble hitting hte falsetto notes. I mean, it's his trademark. I just couldn't imagine Michael without the high notes. I even have a dictionary--frtom 1986--that lists Michael and says his trademark is the high voic.e  ;D Mike's in the dictionary. (I love it when jerks ask me WHAT Michael is, and I recite the little paragraph that's in the dictionary.)  :)

@Mr. Mister: I suppose so, I think I've only heard the song once. And Mama's Pearl is a J-% song--he didn't write it. But I guess you could say there is some truth to the lyrics.  ;)

And about the lowest note, there's two songs where the man gets REALLY deep. I like "Blood on the Dance Floor" and the movie version of "You Can't Win" (in The Wiz)

Hi Everyone!  :)

@Bookmistress: Michael is more of a morning lark. (I like that term) I usually hear these stories of Michael getting up like crazy early to got hot air ballooning and watch the sunrise which is really cute. But I've also seen him stay up late. (But when it comes to work, he'll sit on the fence and crow and wake up the rooster!) I'd rather Mike be a night owl, because to me, Neverland doesn't really look cool and start jumping until nightfall and it's all lit up.  ;D

@Midnite: Oooh! a pageant question! Yay! I would say that Miss Universe is probably more prestigious mainly because Miss America competes there. (Miss USA competes in Miss World) Miss Universe has been around longer and it's just more prestigious. I mean grab any random pageant girl and ask her which she'd rather be, and I can't almost guarantee she'll say Miss Universe. I just wonder if they every find life forms on other planets, will they be alloved to compete in Miss Universe.  ;D (I'm silly)

@Howard: Nice try, Mike just has a crazy schedule. (I'm still going with morning lark) But I have one of his night owl moments on tape and I love it. On the Bad tour leg in Europe, Michael, in mismatched jammies, signed a bunch of photos and tossed them out his hotel window. There was like a thousand fans in the street and they were FIGTING over the pics. LOL. (But I've also seen him drop signed waterballons in the day)  ::) When Michael is recreational, he does funny things.  ;)

Great questions guys please send more!

Hey y'all!

@Mr. Mister: I just like answering the questions.  :)

Mike has never traveled ot another planet, though I'd love to see him Moonwalk on the Moon. (Or one of the 16 Moons orbiting Jupiter) I heaqr he removes all but one pickle from hiws burger. He leavesit on for  flavor surprise.  :D He has a nose.  ::) And I saw himb low it onfce whille he was in court. Poor dear.

@Butterall: It is impossible for Michael to dissapaear. While he may get lighter, he is a solid human being. Casper, a fictional charater, is a ghost. And most ghosts that manifest themsevles in a visisble form or mostly made of a traslucent susbstande called ectoplasmwhich isw of a totatally different cdompositin than human skin. ((I watch Ghost Hunters alot on TV) So Michaael mqay evetually rsemble3 a glass of milk. but you'll NEVER be able to swee through him.  ;D

@Howard: If he's recording, it could be in the wee hours of the morning. If he's on recreaqtionqal time, probably a more3 wholesome hour.  :) If he's with me.... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I saw a news report where he is definately not losing Neverland Ranch, so that is good.
Do you know any history behind it?  Who owned it before or did Michael do any home improvement while he was there?

Has Michael ever said who he looks up to are?  Both in music and entertainment industry or in regular/non-celebrity life?

Do you think he will ever be married again?

What is Michael favorite snack?  Yeah I'm running out of things to ask...  at least I'm trying.  lol

I would assume that Michael's children are privately tutored.  Are there other celebrities who he gets together with so that they kids can play together?  Has he mentioned any personality traits or talents that he's noticed in his children?

Hi Y'all!

@Howard: His voice will not go out. He trains and warms up all the time with his vocal coacdh Seth Riggs (or Briggs, I can never remember.)

@Bookmistress: I now a few things about the Ranch. I know that Michael purhased the Ranch for 17 million dollars on MKay 2, 1988. It was formerly called the Sycamore Ranch and I think somethibng like cdattle had been raised there. I don't know who the previous owner was. All of the bulding has mostly mbeen Mike's mthing, revamping the Tudor style mansio0n and adding the zoo and theme park . I have one tape where Michale was walking around the property shortly mafter it was bought, I hardly recognised it. Just open fieleds. I'd get lost and starve to deaht out there. (Now if you get lost you can hop on the cell and say you're next to the snake habitat or something.  ;D ) I just thik MJ has the cdoolest house. It even has it's own fire department!

Mike looks up to people like James Brown and Jackie Wilson, Michaelangelo, other great classwicdal musicians. As a child he kinda idolized Diana Ross. And he LOVES Peter Pan. I know it's a fictional character, but he loves it. He hass statues of Pan in his house and has him jackets and the movies ad all. There was actually taqlk back in the day that Michael was to portray him, but it went to Robin williams instead. Its okay, I can't imagine Mike in green tights aqyway. He's so tall and skinny, he'll look like a big string bean.  :)

I dunno. He should just get it over with and ask me.  ;) ;D ;) 

Mike's favorite snack? I've heard he likes quesedillas with hot saUce.  8-P I like'em with salsa.(And you're doing GREAT)

Mike's children are tutored. I heard that his children were friends with Marlon Brando's grandkids, and Rabbi Schumley's children. And mI think they polay with ther kids of his servants.
Before Blanket was born Mike said in an interview that Paris is the "strong" one and that Prince-Michael is more sensitive. But I've heard that his kids are very well  behaved.

Great questions guys. Please ask more! (Aski me mthe silliest questions you can think of.  ;D)

Did you hear about this??

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A foreclosure auction scheduled this week for Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch was canceled after an investment company bought the loan.


An investment company has saved Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch from a foreclosure auction.

Colony Capital LLC spokeswoman Caroline Luz said the loan purchase was recently made by Colony and the auction slated for Wednesday was off, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

In a statement released Sunday by a Jackson spokesman who identified himself as B. Michael, the singer said he was "pleased with recent developments involving Neverland Ranch ... that would allow me to focus on the future."

Jackson had gone into default on the $24.5 million he owes on the 2,500-acre spread in Santa Barbara County. He has struggled to pay his debts in recent years after his financial empire crumbled following his arrest in 2003 on child molestation charges. A jury later acquitted him and he hasn't lived at Neverland for the past two years.

Jackson's attorney, L. Londell McMillan, declined to comment to The Associated Press on Sunday. A call by the AP to Colony Capital was referred to a public relations firm.

Jackson bought the property in 1988 and turned it into a miniature amusement park with rides, including a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel and roller coaster, and a zoo




Also, I must know, do you have the tracklistings and lyrics from all of MJ's albums memorized?  How many times do you think you've listened to them?  Which one do you tend to listen to the most and why?  Which album do you think features the best of the following:  music, lyrics, vocals, style

Hey Y'all!

@Howard and Butterball: I don't think the song was about Janet, but personally I hated it becaue for a month after the song dropped, random people would sing it to me.  8-P

@Sir Billzy: Cool name, I heard of this onb one of the MJ sites I frequent. Don't really know what to say. Glad Michael gets to keep his property of course, but I'm sad that they're making it publie his financial woes. and things of that nature. But he can;t be doing all that bad. He's got great digs staying in world class hotels in Las Vegas and from wht I hear, he and hios siblings are flying to England tomorrow. (And I'm sure it's on a private Lear jet.)  I try to stay away from Michael's financial affairs. It gets kinda messy and turns into alot of bruhaha and I just wait for Michael to open his little glossy pink mouth and make a statement.;  :)

As far as the traclklistings go, I haqve a pretty good knowledge of his albums and what I don't know, I can find.  ;D I don't own ALL of Michael's albums, but I have a good poriton of them. I think it's safe to say that I have listened to them thousands of times in the last 13 years. I probably play the Bad album most often because I am just in love with that album and the tour and all of that sort of stuff. I even have a list of all the tour dates and the setlist from the shows in one of my MJ binders. The beginnings of my fanhood revolved around Bad. It was the first albhum I ever got. And them Moonwalker is based around it...It's wonderful.  But I think that the best album with vocals, style, yadda yadda yadda is Off the Wall. I mean it's constrructed perfectly and I adore it.
And I buy albums as they drop. (You should see me trying to keep up with Prince.) ;)

FYI..."Captain EO" was a 3D movie at Disneyland. I think I first saw it in 1987. Couldn't believe my eyes..the 3D was really good. From the very start, a floating rock in space, comes on the screen and it looks like you could reach out and touch it. Had never seen 3D this real.

Hey Butterball!

I know that Captain EO was a 3d theme ride, but I never got to see it because I've never been to a Disney themepark.  :( I wanted to see it in the ride,but I don
t even know if it's still at Disnetland or not. I caught the vid on an MJ site and it was pretty cool.  ;D  I really liked his costume.

Great question and please ask more.

Hi Y'all!

I know on my Prince thread I've said it a millionm trillion times that Prince could have been a model if he hadn't become a singer.(Sure he's petite, but still...)

But now I'm starting to think the same about Michael Jackson.  ::) Call me crazy, but I think these photos smack of high fashion:

(Photos from Michael's Ebony/Jet photoshoot.)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/photoshoots/ebony/008.jpg

I ALMOST bought a pair of silver metallic jeans when I saw Michael in that.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/photoshoots/ebony/004.jpg

I think this is pretty and simple. He's not trying to hard.  ;)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/photoshoots/ebony/009.jpg

I was really excited when I saw this because it kind of hearkens back to the Michael I grew up with in the 90s. The military look, but not so heavily embellished.

This isn't a photo heavy post, I just wanted to make a statement.  :)

Please ask more questions, or leave comments if you want.  8)

No, it was not a theme ride...it was a 3D movie inside a theatre...you had to wear 3D glasses to see the special effects. It is no longer at Disneyland. They pulled it right after Mikes first child molestation accusations. They replaced it with "Honey, I shrunk the audience".

Hey Butterball.

My mistake. (But one mistake every hundred questions isn't all that bad, huh?  ;) ) I hate they pulled it. That whole ordeal really threw a monkey wrench into Michael's world.  :( but I'm so over it. I have my own beleifs about Michael, and when I think of him, "pedophile" doesn't come to mind. I like "Honey I Shrunk..." movies. Not a bad replacement.

And to all y'all, I found the funnist little tidbit while I was hanging around an MJ site. Apparently there is a chick in te UK who claims that she had 15 children for Michael Jackson...pardon me, my sides just split...and she's trying to get child support from him. (of course the judge threw out the claim) Mike with 15 children. If she wanted to sue a Jackson, Jermaine would have been more beleiveable. He has 10 children.  ;)

See it's people like that who give fans a bad name!  :(

Please send more questions!  ;D

No, that is not the same shirt Michael wore in his 60 Minutes interview. Yes those are the same trousers he wore to James Brown's funeral. (I still think he was bold to wear a leather suit to a funeral, but that's him) Anyhoo, I think Mike looks nice and I'm pleased to see him smile.

Please send more questions. (And I have a talent for recognizingt if Michael has worn a garment more than once. Ex. He wore the same jacket to the 84 Grammys in February that he wore to the White House in May.) ;)

Did Michael like making "The Wiz"?  I thought it was a brilliant film.  I even liked Diana Ross in it, even though she's too much of a primadona for my tastes.  I won't fault her that she did make some great music, but could do a little humility with her attitude IMO.

Written By: apollonia1986 on 05/26/08 at 3:43 pm

Hi Everybody! Happy Memorial Day!  ;)

@Ninny: Yes I do.  ;)

@Mr. Mister: My life growing up as a Michael Jackson fan was pretty unique. I got in early at age 9 so I've been a fan for more tham half my life now--I'm 22. I like to learn and when I got into Michael, I really knew nothing about him except Billie Jean and like Thriller. And for me, when I was little I was competitive. I did beauty pageants, and the competitor in me has always been there. And when I'd see other MJ fans with huge collections and who knew the smallest details about Michael, I dove in head first buying albums and getting pictures and movies and stuff. My mother--God Bless her soul--was very patient with me in going and buying me MJ stuff. Like two and three albums a WEEK for me. I don't mind it because I like to collect memorobilia. I just hate having to explain to my best frined, that NO, I didn't buy everything at once. It was a ten year effort that is still a work in progress. Of course there were the ignorant fools who tried to ridicule me about Michael, but I don't care about them. I know what makes me happy. And it gives me a delisicious thrill when they try to insult me with Michael with the wrong information and I just walk all over them with what I know. I mean, I know WHAT time Michael Jackson was born.  ;D Needless to say, I have too much time on my hands.

Ahh, seeing a new music video.  ;D I love it. I love seeing a new video or a new performance. The lengths I've gone to for videos. The first premire I saw was the night I became a fan. I saw the world premiere of You Are Not Alone, and I loved it. Knew nothing about Michael at the time, but just gravitated towards him. I rembmer just kind of sitting and giggling as Michael sat and sang, semi nude with angel wings sprouting out his back. It's always ab adventure seeing his videos, and I know it's good because Michael is a perfectionist and he won't release anythingif it's not his vision. (Which is why Scream costed 7 million dollars to make.)  And I mean when it's a Michael premeire, and I was in school, I faked sick, faked fevers, faked asthma attacks. LOL. (But I graduated with honors.)  ;)
My favorite video that I watched for the first time was In the Closet that Michael did with Naomi Campbell (I wonder if she tossed a phone at him?)  and it was so incredible., I was about 12 at the time and Michael was wearing a muscle shirt and just being really provactive. I know Michael and provacative in the same sentnece, who knew? Like my jaw hit the ground, and I was gobsmacked. He was really giving Prince a run for his money. LOL. But it's just really fun and exciting.  :D

@Bookmistress: Michael adored making The Wiz. He was particularly fond of wearing the Scarecrow makeup--which took 4 hours to apply--and he often wore the make up home. He liked being in character that much. We all know that Michael kind of has, um, image issues. (I think he's nice looking though. Very cute.) And he likes being in character. The man was bouncing when they put the goo on him to make the Thriller werewolf metamorphasis mask. Man was happy. I was happy too--he wasn't wearing a shirt. Just saran wrap.  :( But back on topic. I liked Diana Ross in the movie too. The firs ttime I saw it, I didn't realize MJ was the Scarecrow until my mom said it was him. And as far as humility for Miss Ross goes, Michael knocked her off her high horse. I heard a story that she was mad at him while they were making the movie because he picked up the dance steps so easily and she was stumbling. That's where the 14 year age diefference between them came up.  ;D

Well, great questions guys! I really enjoyed these. Please ask more.

Have you seen the "Making of Thriller" video?  Way back in the day I rented that thing several times.  It was really fun watching him joke along on the set, and learn the dance moves and be put into his zombie/werewolf makeup.

What kind of stuff does Michael like to read?  Does he pay much attention to the tabloid stuff?
Has he said whether, at first, he was nervous to go solo?  They had such tremendous success and then he just broke free and zowie...his career took off.    I used to collect alot of magazine articles/pictures too back in 84-85.  I ended up giving them to my younger cousin for her birthday.  She liked him too.  Now I wish I'd kept them all.  ;D  I'd much rather have given them to you, who might appreciate it more. 

What are fans in other countries like?

Hi Guys!  ;D

@Bookmistress: Yes, I have it. I taped it off of VH1 a few years ago. I think it's cute. I like when John Landis kept lifting Michael over his head. It was just fun to see Michael casual and more likje himself and not "on" as a performer.

Michael reads all kinds of literature. I've seen the inside of his library at Neverland and the bookshelf outside his bedroom. You don't need a TV at Neverland. Play in the amusement prk all day, then at night curl up with a book, and Mike has classics like Oliver Twist and A Tale of Two Cities. (Are those both Charles Dickens? I can never remember) It's nice to know that he does read. He is a very bright and intelligent man and I find intelligence to be especially attractive. The best example is in the interview Michael did with Oprah in 1993, and the camarea just sweeps all the leather bound books Mike has and I was just happy. He reads and is not just another air-headed star.  ;D

Michael wasn;t really nervous about going solo, he just didn't want for his brothers to be left out. Like they succeeded together and now all this attention was on him and he didn't want them to feel left out. Michael just wanted everyone to be included in the mix.  And thank you for considering me about the vintage MJ stuff. I'm always on the look out for new stuff. The man at the collectibles store in our mall knows me by name. "Hi Tiffeny, nope there's no Michael Jackson or Prince stuff in, try back later" I just try to get out ther eand if there's something I want, I ask for it. (And usually I can buy it off the fan. lol.) (If you have anything you're willing to let go of, let me know.  :) It'll go to a good home.)

Fans in other countries are for the most part nice. I mean we're all nice kids/men/women from all walks of life. I mean I know fans who live in little one bedroom flats and I know fans who live in big mansions. I mean fans are any and everybody. And I mean yeah occasionally you come across the overzealous ones who take it a little too far, but I mean all stars have fans like that. I've seen MJ crazies, I've seen Prince crazies, when I was super little, I saw New Kids on the Block crazies. LOL. I think overseas fans are particilarly enthusuastic. I saw a clip of Michael in I think it was Taiwan and it was literally five thousand people flooding Michael's tour bus, and the bus couldn't more. It was madness. And in Amsterdam, there was this one girl, and I REALLY hope that poor girl got to meet Michael. It was rainging cats, dogs, and cows and she was runnign along outside the bus, in the rain, trying to get a glimpse of Michael. Poor Cookie, I hope she got to meet him. I've seen some good fan moments
I've seen people riding on top of his bus, riding on his limo, it's wild.  :D I love it.

@Mr. Mister: Yes thank you for thinking up that question man!

If an alien came to the planet, I'd probably show him Thriller, and lead him to beleive at night that all humans turned into creatures who could tear him apart. If the alien came on a peace mission, them Heal the World.

And here are some more questions you can "think" up for me:

What would "Bad" have been like if Michael and Prince had done it as a duet?
Do you like any other Jacksons besides Michael?

Please send more questions guys!

Hi Mr. Mister!

Great question! I see you put alot of thought into them. LOL.  ;D

MJ/P Bad: Okay, I could care less about the song as a vocal. We know Michael will have his hee-hees peppered in and Prince will have the occasional shriek. What I focused on was the visual. The video. I jist think that visually it would have been so interesting. At the time--1987--Michael Jackson and Prince Nelson bith resembled each other greatly:

http://www.terra.es/personal/fontbella/sign_o_the_times_2.jpg
Prince circa 1987.

http://www.8notes.com/wiki/images/Mj872.jpg
Michael circa 1987-1988

Both men looked similar, thin, caramel colored, sexy, lurid with long curly hair. And I just see the whole color scheme being wildly different that it was in the video now. Instead of black, I see Michael in something red and shiny, leather, spandex, something, and Prince glittering in purple. They'd square off dancing at each other, trying to prove who is the "baddest"  Michael would win or they end up being friends. (Of course, if it were a real fist fight, Prince would wholly mop the floor with Michael I think.  :( )

Jacksons: Gosh...feels kind of funny to admit it but for a spell, I liked Jermaine Jackson. The feeling waned before I bought anyof his albums. One consequence though--I know the episode of The Facts of Life he guest starred on word for word.  ;D I also think Marlon is kinda cute.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/42411000/jpg/_42411767_bb_jermaine_getty.jpg
Jermaine, recently. I dunno where my mind was at. He's a nice looking man, but not my type.  8) And I think MJ wants his jacket back.  :D

http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20070411/285.jacksons.041107.jpg
Marlon recently--on the far right. I like his mustache! LOL! I'm over him now. LOL.

But my fave rave Jackson was and always will be Michael.

Great questions. Please ask more.

Do you know how many surgeries he's had?  Why did he first start getting nose jobs?  Do you know any of the doctor's names?


If Michael lost all the remainder of his money tomorrow, what do you think he'd do?  Where do you think he'd live?

I liked Michael's backing vocal on Maxwell's "Somebody's watching me", has Michael sung backup on anybody else's songs?

Hi Bookmistress:

Michael has had a few surgeries. I've heard speculation about up to six rhinoplaties on his nose, cheek implants and cleft carved into the chin, but since I don't know for certain, I have to say it's speculation. Michael himself has only admitted to two nose surgeries. He got his first nose job in 1977 when he was 19. He was rehearsing, fell of a stage and broke his nose. I don't know any of the doctor's names. Michael's appearance, or how he may or may not have altered it, doesn't interest me.  I'm about the music. And I think he's cute the way he looks.  ;D

http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/008828206.jpg

No one I like looks "normal". I mean look at Michael. Look at Prince. Man wears more pancake than IHOP and heels higher than most supermodels.  ;) I like quirky people. Makes life interesting.

If Mike lost his money. I don't think it'll happen. Someone would pay him to do something, even if it's just to teach dancing. And he'd live in a nice little cottage.

I love Somebody's Watching Me. That's my jam! I know Mike sang back up on Say Say Say with Paul McCartney. Technically is a co-lead vocal, but I heard much more of Paul than I did Michael. And the video was a little ehhh. Latoya played Mike's love interest. Were there no other women in Hollywood that day or something?  >:( I've never really looked at Michael as a back up vocalist. I'll look into it though.

Great quesitons.

Please ask more.  ;D

Heya Mr. Mister ;D

Don't feel bad about not knowing who Christian Audigier was. I didn't know who he was either until I heard Mike went to his party. I just know he has to be major for Michael to get dressed up and go to his party. If Mike likes them, then pretty much, they have to be okay.

(And please tell me you knew who New Kids on the Block were before just recenlty. I like them. They've got The Right Stuff. Oh-Oh-Oh-OO-Oh!)

And gosh man, you're just a fountain of questions.  ;)

What would Mike's outfits look like? This brings out the artist in me with a question like this. I'm quite certain that people expect Michael to make little copies of his outfits, glitter gloves and sequin jackets. etc. No, Michael wants a broader clientelle, I beleive. You can't really wear rhinestoned socks in daily life. I see Michael making seperate lines for men and women. I just have a feeling that Michael's clothign would have a bit of a hip hop. urban flair to them, like a liot of denim and embelleshed hoodies and embroidered tennis shoes. Somethig that is extremely wearable, but still full of flair and very artsy with that Michael Jackson touch. I just kind of see him making clothes for a slick , sophisticated man. Kind of liek Sean John, ALL THE PANTS FIT MEN AT THE WAIST. I've never seen Michael in saggy trousers and I doubt he'd endorse them for other men. And for women, just nice, pretty things, really sparkly and eye catching. All the women he spends time with are all glmourous (Liz Taylor, Sophia Loren, etc.) and I think he'd be inspired by them.

I told you i had a vision of what Mike would do. (Ask me what I think Prince would design for people.  ;D ;D ;D ) This was fun, I design clothing on the side, and to think of what Mike could do after he's inspired me so much personally is just mind boggling!

Hi Mr. Mister.

Mike is a regular guy when it comes to the unies department. He wears plain white briefs.

Now you're asking how do I know? I've seen the Panther dance sequence form the Black or White film a thousand times and I have a clip of him singing live in Austrailia and his barracks door comes open.  :( 30 thousand people, how embarrassing.

Please, for the love of God, don't ask me about Prince and underwear.  ;D

BREAKING MJ NEWS: TODAY IS JUNE 13,2008. IT HAS BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE MICHAEL JACKSON HAS BEEN EXONERATED!

You know I'm celebrating.

Please send more questions!

Hey Mr. Mister.

You're gonna laugh and think I'm kidding, but Michael was actually singing "Another Part of Me" onstage. He was really cool about it though. He spun around, shook his bottom and fixed his wardrobe. ;D

But still it was funny.

I've seen a few little Michael mishaps. He's fallen onstage and bumped into a teleprompter. He's human, mistakes happen.  ;)

But, on a serious note.

And everybody, I found probably the quintessential picture of Michael form his trial:

http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/6472/48688048gq0.jpg

This was taken 3 years ago as Michael was being escorted out of court. I beleive I missed it because I was running cirles around my house cheering. You can see how frail Michael became over the course of his trial, Michael dropped about 20-25 pounds from a frame that's usually 120 pounds on a normal day. So Michael was around 90-100 pounds in that photo. I'm glad that's back to a healthier weight and looking happier.

Please send mroe questions guys. (Haven't had a pageant question in a while...)

Yeah Tiffeny.  I think Michaels got a mole.  Never noticed before ... but ... well, do you reckon it's real ?


Ahh yes ... don't know if this has all been asked before though. Who are Michael's heroes .... sporting, music etc; ?  Anyone he was thrilled to meet ?

Hi Everyone!

@Mr. Mister: I really don 't think Michael has a mole. (Prince has one on his left cheek though.) If he had one, I'd have noticed. Michael has alot of freckles due to his vitiligo. And he had the scars from a fireworkds burn on his left wrist that he got in Poland in 1997. Michael has a little dent in his cheek that's been there since he was a kid, because he fell into some drums and scrathed his face when he was about 11  or 12.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/earlyyears/solo/photoshoots/photoshoot2/004.jpg
Michael around age 17 with the little dent in his cheek clearly visible.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/earlyyears/solo/photoshoots/photoshoot2/004.jpg <--To see the photo at full size.

And even today, at 49 years old, in certain photos you can see the dent still is there.

@Butterball: Michael was under a great deal of stress and not eaiting properly. But his so-called "crackhead" weight is a thing of the past. He's back at his healthy 120. (He also dropped to 105 during the "Bad" tour.)

Pleasr ak more questiions guys!  ;)

Hi Billzy!

Wonderful questions!  ;D

Alot of MJers are gonna hate me and think I'm a turncoat for this, but I really don't like "Scared of the Moon" It's an outtake from the Thriller album. The message of the song is beautiful, but the vocals on it...great googly moogly! Michael can do a falsetto, but he did it to death. I didn't like the extremely high tome of the song. (I'm sorry Michael.  :( )But I like all the other Thriller Outtakes I've heard. I never really think about my dislikes because I like more than I dislike.

My favorite celeb guest star. Oh gosh. I loved Michael Jordan in the Jam video, where Michael Jackson was tryting to show him how to dance and he was just bumbling around because he was so much bigger than Michael Jackson. I also like how funny Chris Tucker was in You Rock My World.

My favorite MJ interview. Oh gosh. I've seen alot.  ;) Even though I highly dilike the interviewer and it caused Michael all the trouble in the world, The Living With Michael Jackson one stays in high rotation in my home because even though thte interviewer was an elitist, pompous jerk, he did really get down to the nitty-gritty with Michael and got him to open up a bit more. I ust don't really like how Michael started to cry. But I did learn alot about Michael. My best friend can't watch it because she bawls like a baby when Michael talks about being whipped with ironing cords and stuff.  :( I'd really love to interview Michael myself because I wouldn't be coniving and try to twist his workds around anything. (Sure I'd need a medic on hand when I speak to Michael, gosh!) He needs to speak with someone he can trust and not someone who is just maliicious and out to do him harm in the long run.

I also kinda like the interview Michael did with Oprah in 1993.

Two albums: Special Edition of Bad and Invincible and my Beat It Michael Jackson doll.

"Invincible"? You are kidding, right? In my opinion, that was the worst compilation of crap Michael ever put out. Probably the lowest selling album he ever made. You picked that, over "Thriller" and "Off The Wall"? I bought "Invincible" and after listening to it, I almost drop kicked it in to the alley.  8-P

Written By: apollonia1986 on 06/17/08 at 1:52 pm

Hi Butterball:  ;)

You were very vocal about Invincible. If I hadn't wanted it, I'd have chosen a different one. I wanted one classic and one more current album. Invincible isn't bad to me. I think it was wonderfully composed and created and I like the album. It's just not Michael's usual sound. Michael is generally more pop (hence the title King of POP) and this album, to me, seemed more urban with the rapping pieces on it and everything. I beleive that Invincible could have been more successful had it been marketed better. But Michael got tied up in his trial and it all kind of snowballed from there. And at the time Invincible was released, I LIVED on MTV, BET and VH1. I only saw a commercial advertising the album, twice. So that's pitiful for me as a fan. I know when Michael sneezes and who tells him "Bless You" (well, not literally, but I do stay up on Jackson news)  ;)

Please ask more questions.  ;D

**Karma for keeping your cool after that comment from Butterball.

Is it true that MJ is doing a Vegas show?  I just heard that today.

Also, did you ever see the pics of Michael and Madonna at the Academy Awards in 1991?

Hi SirBillzy!

Thank you for the Karma. I'm always cool about things like that. Everyone is entilted to thier own opinion.  :)

The Vegas show hasn't yet been confirmed, just that Michael is in talks with something called The Colony about shows. I just don't want him to turn into a lounge act. Michael in tails and a bowtie?  :o Gosh. I want him to keep his intergrity and individuality. The story has been floating around for a couple of weeks. I lit up my friends phones calling and telling them about it.

And Yes, I saw Mike and Madge at the Oscars. I'm still not sure how that happened. But I liked Michael's outfit.

http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/2029/bad10az6.jpg

The look was really sweet, like a sort of updated 50's throwback. Madonna was done all up and platinum, obviously inspired by Marilyn Monroe, and Michael's jacket was reminiscent of the white cocktail jackets gentlemen used to wear back in that time. I liked it. It was nice.

Great questions. Please ask more!

Stupid question...Have you ever had a dream about Michael?  What happened?

Did Michael ever comment on his feelings about Weird Al's parodies of his songs, like "Eat It" and "Fat"?  I would imagine he would think it was funny because he seems to have a good sense of humor.

Is Liz Taylor still a good friend of Michael's?  Does he visit her?

Have you ever seen video footage of Michael getting burned on the set of his Pepsi commercial? 

Do you have any of Michael's dances, such as the one from the Thriller video, memorized?  If so, do you do them?  Can you moonwalk?  Did Michael invent that dance?

I remember when the History album came out, there was a commerical of a crowd pulling a huge statue of Michael.  Was it really that big or just computer animation?  Where is that statue now?

That's all for now.

Hello Sir Billzy!

Really interesting questions.  ;D

Have I ever dreamt about Michael? Over the last almost 13 years (my thirteenth year anniversary is on the 20th) I've had countless dream about Michael. Most of them are funny. I actually dreamt about Michael last night. It was silly. We went and bought an antique dresser from an old man. I told Mike thank you and kissed his cheek. I was angry because I could feel stubble on his face and I don't really care for him to have stubble or a beard. I  know it's weird. But I like antique furniture and I like Michael Jackson, so...seems okay.  :)

As far as I know, Mike and Liz are still friends and they still visit back and forth.  :) I think it's nice. They seem really sweet together.

Yes, I've seen the commercial. It really was kinda surreal to see Michael with that halo of flames over his head.  :( I'm glad his har grew back.

Hee-hee. I can Moonwalk, and I can do part of the "Thriller" dance. I picked it up from watching the "Making of..." video. And Michael didn't really invent it. He told Oprah that he got it from some inner city kids and just kind opf put his own spin on it. Michael can do it backwards, frontwards, to the side, in a circle, it's cool to watch. I'm not the best dancer, but I have incorporated some of his moves into my past pageant routines. It's fun.

Okay. Here's the story about the HIStory statue. Okay, in the commercial, that was a computer generated image. It's called the "Teaser" video in the MJ circles. But when Michael toured Europe in 96/97, the Sony company made about five or six larger than life stone statues, that looked like Michael--if he were an anorexic drug addict. I really didn't like the statues because if you didn't know it was supposed to be Michael Jackson, you'd be like what the hell is that thing? (Pardon my language) I mean it didn't resemble him at all. I have a 12 inch plastic MJ doll that looks more like him than that disaster in plaster looked.

Great questions! Please ask more.

Ok, I have a question you may not be able to answer, but you may be able to provide some insight.  Every artist has fans, some more "fan"atical than others.  But MJ seems to have a percentage of fans that go totally and completely bonkers when they see him.  They shake, they scream, they faint.  They don't act like rational human beings in any way.  What do you think it is about Michael that elicits such an extreme reaction? 

And a follow up question... if you ever met him, how do you think you would react?  And, if you were able to give him 1 compliment and ask him 1 question, what would it be?  If you were able to spend just 5 minutes with him, what would you want to happen during that 5 minutes?

And lastly for now, and kind of random...what is the rarest MJ collectible?  How much would it be worth?

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 06/19/08 at 3:46 pm

Hi Sir Billzy:

I think that Michael draws some of the most fanantcal fans because he is one of the greatest most enigmatic stars out there. There are things about Michael's being and personality that sets him in a different leauge than most artists. Alot of more stars are more acessacible and Michael isn't. He doesn't reeally date openly, he doesn't go clubbing, etc. And alot of people just love him because he's been around for so long. People get excited and can't really control themselves around Michael. Have you ever seen Michael perform? Not any silly awards show clip or anything like that, I mean a real 90 minute/2 hour set. It's a spectable. The lights, the music, the dancing, the man. Pair that with up to 125,000 people in a standing room only setting and you're gonna have people dropping like flies. I have a tape of a man who worked a series of concerts Michael played in Eurpore during the "Bad" tour and he said at least 5 thousand people fainted a night. Now sone drop just from sheer excitement, but some of these kids camp out in extreme weather conditions and just fall from exhaustion.  So many peopel jsut adore Michael.

If I met Michael. Gosh. I know I'd cry. When I was little I used to wonder why people would cry at him and I'd even try to cry when I saw him. I thought it was the thing to do. But I was a kid and silly and didn't really fully understand the maginitude of Michael Jackson. As I learned, I got hip really quick and my admiration of Michael just grew. I'd cry out of a mixture of happiness and finally being able to meet Michael after 13 years as a fan. (My 13th anniversary is tomorrow) I'd freak out at a concert. Which is really funny because I am an extremely reseved person, but dang, let the bassline to Billie Jean start booming. i'm waiting with bated breath for hte next tour.  ;)

To give Michael one compliment : "You are sexy". I saw a fan tell him this and Michael got red as an apple and started giggling.
One question: "May I hug you please, Michael?" Everyone wants to hug him. And he'll hug people.  ;D
If I could be with Michael for five minutes? I'd talk my way into Neverland or someplace with him as a friend. 

My rarest MJ collectible? Gosh. I'm not really sure. It's a toss up between my vintage Thrller poster and my vintage Michael Jacksons dolls. I got my poster for 12 dollars, but I've seen them go as high as 60 dollars, and the dolls are going for 125 dollars, each. (www.bigreds.com) I don't like to talk about what things cost, it gets embarrassing. LOL.  ;D

This midnite character is in the mood to provoke.  He asked me a stupid question about Madonna too.

In response to your post, I have never seen Michael perform in concert,but I wish I could have in his heyday. 

And Happy Anniversary!  It's funny because I always tell people that my anniversary of being a Madonna fan is August 7, 1991 and they look at me like I'm crazy because I can pinpoint it to a specific day.  It just so happens that I received 2 Madonna albums the day before, on my birthday, and the next day I listened to them, fell in love, and became a fan.  It's really that simple, and it's easy to remember because it's the day after my birthday.  Hard to believe that was almost 17 years ago! Yikes!!

How about you?  What happened on June 20, 1995?

Hi Y'all!

@Midnite: No, Michael doesn't really put the masks on his children any more, they growing up and I bleelvie that Michael is starting to realize that. I don't know if there are any clinical studies that were performed to reveal if there were any adverse after affecdts from wearing masks during your childhood. I dressed up as Wonder Woman as a child and turned out just fine. And no I don't beleive the Jackson children will turn out to be weirdos, as Michael Jackson is not a weirdo. He is just misunderstood.

@Sir Billzy: Thank you. Michael Jackson was the (bleep) is the (bleep). I mean I have concerts that I've watched over and over and each time I discover something new, a note, a specific dance movement, etc. It's just breathetaking.  I know it's not in his heyday, but Michael from Bucharest Romania in 1992 (available at any movie retailer) is an awesome concert. Just wonderful.  ;D

And thank you for the anniversary mention. Isn't Madonna's birthday in August? I think it's like two weeks before Michael's? (Aug. 29)

What happened June 20, 1995? Gosh. Okay short version. On most fridays, I'd watch the  conedy line up on ABC and that night it was cleared so that the Barbara Walkters 20.20 interview with Michael and his then wife Lisa Marie Presley would air. And normally I'd have turned away, but something made me hang and around and watch. And during the show, I heard Michael singing Billie Jean and though I'd never heard it before, I was humming along and the more I watched and the more Michael spoke, the more I began to take a shine to him. And the interview included the world premiere of the "You Are Not Alone"  video and I was just really intrigued. The next day I wore my mother out begging her to buy me a Michael album and it's snowballed from there.  ;D I can't beleive it's been 13 years. Gosh! Some marriages don't last that long!
It feels liek just yesterday I was 9 years old and just over the moon for the Moonwalker and now I''m 22 and still into him!

Incredible!  ;)

Sorry this has taken so long! I'll try to ask a lot of questions to make up for the delay :)

What would be the best possible news you could hear about Michael right now?

What are your Top 5 favorite songs ever?

Do you think Michael will ever marry again?

Are he and Lisa Marie still friends?

What does Michael say in "Black or White" at the end... it goes like this "It's black, it's white, it's ______, yeah yeah yeah".  That's the part in the video where the peoples faces are morphing.

Did you ever see the episode of Golden Girls that was supposed to have MJ in it?  Just a lookalike, obviously.

Do you ever find it hard to figure out what Michael is singing in his songs?  Sometimes I have a hard time understanding.

Do you think Michael will ever have huge commercial success in the US again?  I hope so!

What's Mike's favorite color?  Food?  Movie? 

What do you think it means that he has hired a new publicist?  That he has something big in the works?

Have you ever seen Michael angry?  If so, when and why?

Do you like dance remixes?  What's your favorite remix of a Michael song?

Who would you like to see Michael do a duet with?  (I think this may have been answered already)

What do you think of Michael's acting abilities?

What do you think of the Akon featuring Michael Jackson single?

That's it for now :)

Hi Sir Billzy!

Gosh! That's alot of questions! Here goes:

--The possible news would be that he would be playing the arena in my town and that the tickets would be less than 500 dollars.  ;D

--My top five fave songs:

"Someone Put Your Hand Out"--Michael Jackson
"Somebody's Watching Me"--Rockwell w/MJ backing vocals.
"Bambi"--Prince
"Baby Knows"--The Artist Formerly Known as Prince
"Carousel"--Michael Jackson


--I don't know if Michael will ever marry again, but if he does, I hope it's to somebody sweet who loves him for him.

--I beleive they are. She;'s had nothing but nice thingsd to say about Michael.

--"It's black, it's white, it's tough for you to be, yeah yeah yeah..."

--Yes I saw that episode. It was funny.

--Honey, it's nothng to decipher what Michael is saying. Prince is a nightmare. When he gets all tinny and falsetto-y, I just wanna smack him. I have a concert and he said something, no clue what PRince said. The hardest song I had to learn of Michael's was "Tabloid Junkie" He sang so fast! Sounded like an auction set to music.

--Michael is having commerical success. Thriller 25 has sold two million copies in the states and still selling everyday.  :)

--Red, Sushi and Enchiladas with hot sauce, The Elephant Man.

--I beleive that Michael has alot up his sleeves. He's working on a new album and his clothing line (which I'm dieting to get into lol)  and I just think Michael is doing okay. He's healthier, eating better, getting hisl life together. And I need him to make a comeback. I'm tired of buying Prince stuff! LOL!

--I've seen Michael mad. He got pretty pissed at Martin Bashir when he kept bringing up the subject of plasitc surgeries.  And I've sene Michael give the finger to repprters several times. Kinda funny. Michael Jackson giving the finger to someone. Fist time I saw it, I was like "Oh my God! Mike is really mad!" LOl.

--I love dance remixes. My favorite remixes are Moby's remix of Beat It and the False Fade mix of Bad. I love those. could boogie to those all day!

--I want Michael to duet with Prince. And I'll keep saying that till I die. I want that duet. It's be a smash! Michael and Prince. The King of Pop and His Royal Badness. Perfection. 'Nuff said.  ;)

--I think Michael is a brilliant actor as showed in his musc videos. I don't count The Wiz, because it wasn't Michael's artistic vision. I think only Michael can realize his true capabilities, and when he tried to fit into somene elses vision it kind of gets lost in translation. He is a great speaker, once he kiicks that falsetto, and I think he'd make a wonderful actor if he got the right roles.

---I love the new single. I usually don;t listen to leaked tracks, but it was all over the MJ sites I frequent and I gave in to curiosity! LOL! I love it. He sounds amazing!

Great questions. Please ask more when you get a chance!

Hey there!  Hope you had a nice holiday!  More questions for you:

Have you ever seen Michael ride a bike? Does he know how?

Are there any unreleased songs that you're just dying to hear?  Like a demo from one of his earlier albums that never made the final cut?

If you could chose any 80's sitcom that you would have liked to see MJ make a guest star appearance on, what would it be?

What's your favorite Jackson 5 song?

Do you have a website for the fanclub you operate?

How many total copies of Thriller have been sold since its original release in the early 80's, including the re-release?

Why do you think Thriller is his most popular album?

Which song would you like to have seen a video for that was never released as a single?

Has MJ ever directed any of his own music videos?

Has he ever directed anything else?

What are Michael's children's names and ages?  Does he have full custody of them?

Are you a big fan of any of the other Jacksons?  How about Janet?

When did white glove first appear?  Did it have any symbolism or did MJ just like it?

What's your all-time favorite moment in Michael's entire career?

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Michael Jackson and Beauty Pageants

Written By: apollonia1986 on 07/07/08 at 9:58 pm

Hi Sir Billzy!

Gosh, you're inquisitive! This'll be fun!  :)

I had a nice holiday.

--Yes, Michael can ride a bicycle and yes I've seen pictures of him as a teen riding a bike. He was so cute in little shorts with his skiny legs.  :)

--I keep hearing about this song called "Hot Street"  and I'd love to hear it. Some people have heard it, but most of the fans haven't. I've gotten some previously unreleased material through MJ special releases and things of that sort. And some things have been getting leaked onto Youtube. I'm just glad that Michael doesn't have Prince's temper or the fanbase would be in trouble! LOL!

--The Facts of Life. Hand down, easy. Michael's brother Jermaine was on the show and Kin Field's character Tootie had a cruish on him. But in every episode before that all she ever spoke about was MICHAEL Jackson, not Jermaine. I have three different episodes where she mentioned him and got all googly eyed. But Michael wasn't really doing TV because honestly, he hated doing the Jacksons variety show in the 70s and just doesn;t like to do TV that much.

--Dancing Machine. I mean, it's disco at some of it's funkiest. LOL.

--Yes I do.  :)

--104 million copies world wide last count according to the December 2007 issuse of Ebony Magazine.

--I think Thriller was so wildly successful because at the time, Michael was probably the hottest "everybody" friendly act in music. He was cute so girls and women liked him, but he wasn't vulgar so children could like him too. And since gilrs liked him, guys looked up to him. And since he was performing with his brothers and promoted family, grown ups liked him. And hell, the man was (and is ) talented. No one else looked like him or dressed liked hm and no one can still move like him, though many make an attempt at it. I just know that if this werew 1984, I'd be broke and eating beans cold out of a can because I'd be buying up so much stuff, dolls, concert tickets, etc. I'm still trying to find a Thriller vinyl.  ;D It'll be nice for it to go with my 3 Thriller cds, Thriller poster, and Thriller 25 poster.  ;)

--Tabloid Junkie off the HIStory   album. That song is so heavy with angst and pop culture refrences, it's literally BEGGING to be made into a video. I actually saw an interpretation of the song that a Michael Jackson tribute artist did and it was quite good. There was alot of newspaper shredding.  :)

--Yes, while I'm sure Michael has had a hand in directing everything, he made his "official" directorial debut on his music video for "In the Closet" with Naomi Campbell in 1992. A pretty good vide if I might say so myself.  :) He's also directed the videos for 1997's Blood on the Dancefloor and 1993's Jam co-starring NBA legend Michael Jordan.

--I've looked and asked around, he hasn't directed anything else.

--Woo Hoo! Children. Okay. Oldest to youngest. Prince Michael Jackson, Jr, 10. Paris Katherine Michael Jackson, 8. Prince Michael Jackson III (AKA Blanket) 5. And yes he has full custody of all them. Debbie, Michael's sexond wife gave up custody of Prince and Paris and Blanket's mother is a surrogate that Michael hired, so I think she has no legal right to him. All three of Michael's children are adorable and the boys look just like Michael.  :)

--Um, for a while I was into 3T, a song group that featured Tito's three sons, but I'm kind of over them. (I'm into Prince Nelson now) But I do enjoy Jacksons's music. I have one Janet album. (Rythym Nation) I liek some of Jermaine and Marlon's solo work.

--The gliove first appeared on the 1981 Triumph   tour. The glove is symbolic. Michael adores the feeling he gets onstage and he's often said that with the glove on "I'm never offstage".

--My all time favorite moment. Five seconds after the verdict when Michael was escorted out of court and got into his car and went back to Neverland. I kind of saw a beige blur as Michael went by because I was crying like a punk. It was such a weight lifted off me.  For 18 months I had been wondering if Michael was going to be set free or if he was going to be bunking with a 500 pound man named Big Al. I mean it was a releif. Alot of the fans were worried that Michael went to jail, he'd lose his mind (because since he was a celebrity more than likely he'sd be put into solitary confinement) or worse, commit suicide. So esentially Michael's life got saved.  :)

Wow. wonderful questions! Please ask more! And Billzy, PLEASE ask some quesitons in my Prince/Apollonia thread. PLEASE?

Hi Snoz!

--I'm gonna be calm when adressing the Corey Feldman matter and state only cold hard facts. I'm cursing like a sailor internally mind you, but I'll be placid here.  :) Corey and Michael were ffriends in the late 1980s until Corey's drug use cause Michael to put the brakes on thier friendship until he got clean. Back in 2001 you know the Jacksons did thier reunion concert and Corey was there as az guest of Michael. Of couse the next day 9/11 occoured and Michael got two buses. One to transports his family, the other to transport his friends out. Cory apparently got on the wrong bus--the family bus-- and was politely asked to get on the other bus. Corey became steamed and not too long after, began making faulty accusations. He even went so far as to claim that Macauly Culkin was abused, though Culkin denied and actually testified in Michael's favor. All this absurdity resulted from getting on the wrong bus. I'd be happy just that Michael remembered me and didn't leave me in the first place !
Gosh.  :)

--Wow. An old song. I once heard Michael singing "Moon River" and I always thought it would be a nice little ditty for him to cover. I just can't think of Michael doing another artists work though...but if I had to pick. "Moon River" would be it.  ;D

--Hmm...current song. Probably that song Rhianna  did where she sampled "Wanna Be Startin Somethin'. I think it was something about stopping music or something. I don't really know much about current music actually. LOL.

-You gave me five people for a top four. LOL.

#4 Apollonia
#3--Prince
#2--Christina and Janet (tie)
#1--Michael.

But don't they all end up getting recordsing contracts on that show anyway?  ;D I don't even watch anymore. LOL.

Great questions! Please ask more!

good answer... I actually didn't know about the 9/11 story thanks for that....  and I didn't follow who testified how during the trial so watching that show was really the first time I heard him say anything....and just so you know names were never mentioned...that's what got me thinking.  But I'll leave it alone because I like you...

As for the AI question...sorry I can't count and I don't do ties so  Janet and Christina who gets spots 2 & 3?  Appollonia is now #5 and Prince is #4

Hi Y'all!

@Snoz: I'm glad that my answer helped to straighten things out for you.

@Billzy: During Michael's trial, one moring before going to court, he slipped in the shower and injured his back (that was the day he showed up in pajamas to court) and apparently his back is giving him trouble again. No biggie.
And I don't know who Perez Hilton is trying to call a freak. His hair changes color so much, he looks like Sno-Cone on legs.  ::)

Hi TV.

Yeah, Michael is a fan of Justin Timberlake. They worked together a few times in the early 2000's. Michael made a cameo when N'Sync played the MTV awards in 2001 and they played at Michael's 30'th anniversery concerts.  :) It was okay. I thought N'Sync and the Jacksons singing Dancing Machine together was a big excessive. You kinda lost Michael in a sea of 11 people wearing sparkly costumes. LOL.

I was listening to some Stevie Wonder on youtube tonight, and realized how similar the bass line of MJ's "Leave me alone" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbH04pY7alA is to Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wZ3ZG_Wams

It just sounds in a slightly different key.

Did Michael write the music for the "Leave me alone" song?  Do you think he wrote it as an homage to SW?  Or maybe used a sample of the song (in a different key?)

Or am I just hearing things.  I think they sound remarkable similar.

Hi Boomistress.

Wow, they do sound similar. Lemme break out the liner notes from the Bad album right quick... :)

The notes say that Michael wrote and composed the song. But there is a Michael Jackson/Stevie Wonder duet on the Bad album. Track #5, Just Good Friends is thier song. (And it ROCKS!) Maybe Mike liked the way Stevie's song sounded and borrowed the line. I don't see anything about a sampling of the song, but Stevie is thanked in the Thanks Yous at the end of the album.  ;D

Great question!

@Si Billzy: That Dangerous LP sounds awesome man.  8) I've heard of that alternate video. I heard it got pulled for some reason. Is it true that Stevie is wearing a blue version of Michael's red outfit.  ;) I've also heard that there is a third version of it that's in the vault at Prince's Paisley Park studio. Not too many people know this, but prior to the Bad fiasco, Prince and Michael collabed on a rare Thriller duet (something like The Girl is Mine mike did with Paul McCartney) but Thriller was intended as a duet and the video was shot in the woods surrounding Minneapolis. (its the same woods in Purple Rain) and way, Michael is zombie like in the rleased version and Prince plays a vampire. I've seen one still of Prince from it. He looked pretty funky with the big hair, and his face painted and with faux bloody fangs and all. It was pretty awesome. He had on a purple rhinestoned cape too. Bella Lugosi had nothing on him! LOL!







You know I'm kidding right.  :D LOL.

Apollonia I loved that video and he looked very happy in it, I also think that he was looking great, and it was just before he entered a dark phase and ended up overdoing the cosmetic surgery thingy.

Hey Butterball!


I don't think he's sick. If he was, people would talk, of course. And he's in jammies because that's his thing--wearing pajammas. Man wants to be confortable. And Mike is just thin. I don't think much of it. He got really thin like that during his trial. He's 50, his weight will flucuate.

GOD, it's feels so strange to say Mike is 50. He doesn't seem like it to me! LOL!  :)

Wow. All this time and still no MJ questions? Gosh.

Well, my sources have informed me of a new, exciting piece of Michael Jackson merchandise. (out in December for the holidays.) Feast your eyes on the 2008 MJ Doll!

No, this isn't a picture of Michael Jackson! It's a 12 inch doll!

A close up of mini-Michael's face. Has the sculptor captured Michael or what?

Straight up, this is 100 times better than the Michael Jackson dolls I own. He has more movement, and looks way more lifelike. Plus he has the fedora!  :o

Pretty cute or what?

Hi Billzy!

The doll is also posted on ebay for around 200 dollars, which I would have bought, but there's about a week long bidding period for him, and every Michael fan within a 500 mile radius is bidding on him, so he'll be selling pretty high. I'll just wait until Michael tours and go see him. It HAS to be cheaper.  Pluis the doll comes right AFTER I've gone on an MJ/Prince shopping binge. LOL. :( But still that doll is pretty nice. They even got the little wrinkle that pops up in Michael's nose when he squinches his face up. Even the flip on the back of his fedora! Wonderful.

Hi Butterball!

That's a brilliant idea, but alas, this Michael is silent. But a Michael Jackson doll was released in 1997 from France and there was a little button in his back and when you pressed it, an excerpt of Black or White played, giving the illusion that Michael was "singing".

http://www.michael-jackson-trader.com/items/largeitempics/mj-doll.jpg

I'm not too keen on this rendition of Michael Jackson. It's a semi-applicable likeness of him. But NEVER have I EVER seen Michael wear a half ton of silver eyeshadow on his lids. (Yellow ONCE) And bodily proportions are a little off. I have a friend who owns this particular doll and he says he only bought it because it's a piece of memorobilia, not nessicarily because he likes it. To me, it kinda looks like Barbie doll--without the bust--which is really unfourtunate for a Michael doll. It's depicting a man, Michael is a man, though his appearance might be a little on the fem side, someone has to balance it correctly or you come off with a cockeyed toy.
And never have I ever seen a fan at a Michael show with this doll, you see the vintage ones from the 80s.  ;D

I'm just amazed by the craftsmanship on that  new 2008 doll. I know I'm being monotonous, but it really is an interesting how intricate it is. Soneone took thier time making that. The dolls I have were popping out of a machine at breakneack speed to meet fan demand. Hell, you even see the dolls in a Back to the Future   movie! They were nice, but you had one and Susie down the road also had one and Bobby across the street had one too. It was common. (But I'm glad mommy got them for me.  ;) )
This is uncommon.  >:( And hot dog I wish I could buy it!  >:( LOL.

Please ask more questions!

QUESTION TO EVERYONE: I've been considering going back into competing in pageants. I'm wondering, what do you guys think? Should I try it again? Thanks!  ;D

wow!! So I guess they only made a handful of these, then?  I'm interested to know what it ends up going for.  How much memorabilia do you have?  If you had to guess, how much money do you think you've spent?  I can say at one time I had spent proably $10,000 on Madonna memoribilia...and now, as an adult, I collect other things that probably would total just as much.  :o

Hey Y'all!  ;D

@Sir Billzy: I think it's a limited edition doll, maybe a few hundred are being made. How much memorobilia do I have? Gosh, quite a bit. I have dolls, shirts, Dvds, CDs, tapes, vinyls, some nice stuff. It's really embarrasing to think of what I've spent. It's over there. A few grand.  :-how I know that! LOL!)  And as an adult now, my main thing is wanting to see Michael in concert. I missed two concerts when I was a kid because my mom was scared of the freaking crowd.  :( There are three easy rules for a Michael Jackson concert and every good fand knows them:

1--Don't faint: You faint, you lose how ever much you spent on a ticket because you spend the rest of the show in the medic tent, behind the stadium and out of view. Plus if you fall, people can step on you! I don't care how good Michael looks, I don't care how exhausted you are becaue you've been up for 3 days in line to get into the show, I don't care how how you are, Don't Faint!
2--Watch out for fans with lighters: Lighter go on during the ballads, You Are Not Alone, Heal the World, I Just Can't Stop Loving You...you will get burned if you bang into them. Watch out for the sparkler holders too! Pretty much watch out for anything shiny that NOT on Michael.
3--Do not, I repeat DO NOT try to rush the stage: Michael has more security surrounding him that the President. If you rush the stage or at him you WILL be taken down.


@Philip: I think the doll is madein Hong Kong, but yes, I do think they ship worldwide. And I know with the 1997 doll, they will ship worldwide from ebay.

Great questions guys! Please ask more.

Hi Philip.

Now I'm by no means a market researcher, but the MJ World is abuzz with talk over this toy. As far as MJ meorobilia goes, this will be a best seller. As far as dolls in general go, the boy will get beat by a gilrl because Barbies and Bratz are the most popular--and common--dolls in the market.

Hey Philip!

I don't do eBay because I know I wouldn't be able to control myself there. I'd end up with a 10 thousand dollar tab and be pulling my hair out over it. LOL. Besides, I like to buy from other fans because I know the merchandise is coming from a happy fan home and going into a happy fan home--mine.  ;D

If anyone wants to correspond with me to make a sale, please do!  ;)



are you looking for anything in particular? I know I have an MJ doll he's naked... I bought it at a swap meet because the doll was anatomically correct!  ;D  I know you don't always like the MJ jabs and I appreciate your support- I was a huge fan back in the day but you know...I short of fell aside with all the other stuff.

I will look tho. I don't really want to part with my MJ doll but I may still have the trading cards and stuff.  I don't want to part with my off the wall album because off the wall is my fav album. But the trading cards if I can find them - I will definitely be willing to let go. I already told you I am cleaning out my apt and trying to get rid of the toys I no longer have an attachment to so you may score big if I have that stuff here in Santa Barbara and not at my mom's house in AZ... sorry I should have pm'd this but whatever!

What do you know about MJ owning some of the rights to the Beatles songs?  Does he still have that catalog or did he sell it?  Was that before or after he made the duets with Paul McCartney?  I heard that Paul wasn't especially pleased at how the songs were being used, but I don't know how true that was.

Written By: apollonia1986 on 09/30/08 at 5:50 pm

Hey Y'all!

@Bookmsitess: As far as the catalog goes, Michael still has it. Michael bought it in the late 80s--1987 if I'm correct--for around 48 million dollars. And this was after his duets with Paul McCartmey. The Girl is Mine was cut in 1982 and Say Say Say (on McCartney Pipes of Peace album) in 1983. And no Paul wasn't pleased with the way the songs were used, but there was nothing he could do. Michael owns them and he and Michael haven't spoken to each other in a good 15 years.  :( It's kind of sad, but if Michael sells the catalog, he'll make well overe 1 BILLION dollars, so I don't think he misses Paul all that much.  ;D

@Snoz: I'm a pretty good expert on both topics. I've been a hardcore MJ fan since 1995 and I've been competing in pageants since I was 5. (Please ask me personal pageant questions, not stuff like who was Miss America 1933 or anything? LOL. Like how I got into pageants, why I keep competing, yadda yadda yadda)  :)

Tiffeny-  When was the last time you were in a pageant? How many did you compete in? What was are your talents? Did you win any crowns. Are you still active in the pageant universe....why do they spell the word pageant wrong? Who is your favorite famous pageant winner? Which is your favorite televised pageant show? Well I guess I should ask if you watch them or not?  Did you see Miss Congeniality? How about Beautiful with Minnie Driver (I LOVE THAT MOVIE!) And what about Drop Dead Gorgeous- Did you see that? What did you think about the depiction of kid pageant contestants in Little Miss Sunshine? Why were some of them so scary?  There was a movie (TV movie?) in the late 70's early 80s about a murder back stage of a beauty pageant- did you ever see it? I forgot the title... plus this was a plot of an episode for every crime drama from the same period.... did you watch the crime dramas of the late 70s early 80s (I know you were a kid but there are ways of seeing these things later... what was your favorite?


okay that should keep you busy for a while...

Hi Snoz!  Great selection of questions!

--The last time I was in a pageant was in February of 2007. Since then, I took time off to care for my mother  who had been ill. (she unfortunately passed away thispast April) and to devote time to my writing.

--Typically in a good year, now, it's about four pageants a year, but I used to do one every month.

--My Talent is generally singing. Usually, I sing MJ's You Are Not Alone, but a friend of mine is tryng to find a soft Prince song for me. (Something tasteful) LOL.

--Yes, I have 5 crowns. I had more, but I gave them away to friends.

--Yes, I am still active. I loosely coach the daughters of one of my mother's friends and I sketch pageant clothing for them.
--I don't know why they spell it wrong, seems like a simple word to me.
--My favorite winner is of course Vanessa Williams, the first Black Miss America.
--My favorite televised pageants are Miss America and Miss Universe. Though that Miss America reality show was TERRIBLE!
--Yes I watch them.
--I saw Miss Congeniality
--And Beautiful.
--And Drop Dead Gorgeous--Kirsten Dunst is a riot.
I haven't actually seen Little Miss Sunshine yet, but I'm going to.
--Pageant kids, to me aren't scary. They're just normal kids.
--Do you mean Crowned and Dangerous. I saw that too. I keept getting Yasmine Bleeth and Carmen Electra confused.
--Yeah, I watch some crime drama from the 80s. Miami Vice and In the Heat of the Night.


And Miss America 1933 was a 15 year old girl named Marain Bergeron.  ;D

How many crowns did you win total? And which was your favorite most memorable?

Any faux pas in one of your pageants...like that Miss Universe chick?

Any funny backstage stories?

Have you met any of the more famous miss whatevers? Did you see the pic I took with Vanessa Williams? Are you jealous? Just kidding.

Hi Y'all!  ;D

@Mir. Mister: Yes a pageant is a contest. You can call them beauty contest, but it's so much more than that, you know. It's not just a girl or woman in a pretty dress. You really do have to have poise and grace and intelligence. (Ands I've seen my fair share of knuckleheads in my time!)  :( I guess pageants are more common place here. There's thousands of them around the USA a year.

A degree in Michaelogy. Now there's an idea. Not to toot my own horn, but my friends do come to me with trivia about Michael and Prince.  ;D It's funny because I've had friends swear and be damned that I must personally know Michael or Prince because I seem to know so much. But I know I don't know everything. Only Michael and Prince really know everything.  ;) I just have a weird capacity in my mind to remember things I hear about them. I know silly things like what size underwear Michael wears (32) and how high the heels on Prince's shoes are (4 inches) But my real iunterestis in novel writing. If I studied anything, it'd be creative writing. And finishing school was okay. I made my parents proud, and now I'm working on my book and designing pageant clothes.  ;D

Yes my talent is singing, and actually no, I don't like kareoke. LOL. And thank you for your condolensces. I know my mother is in a better place and watching over me.

@Snoz: Thank you.

I'm considering getting back into pageants again. I have a friend who is constantly sending me pageant forms. There's one on my desk right now. It just takes alot of time and I'd rather do my writing and work on expanding my MJ/Prince collections and working now. Plus I like the freedom to eat what I want when I want. If I hit the route, salads appear in front of me.  ;D
So far, I've won about 60-70 titles/crowms over the years and I gave them away actually to make room for my MJ/Prince collection. LOL. I held on to the bigger crowns though. Most of my crowns were small casue I did alot of smaller pageants. My favorite one is the one I got last february at the Diamond Divaz pageeant. It's red and clear and like 7 inches high and I love it. I won the titles of "Grand Talent" and "Hi-Point" winner.  ;D
A faux pas...gosh. Well when I was first starting out, I was about 6 or 7 at the time, I was doing a school pageant and as I was coming onstage,I didn't notice that the floor was uneven and I tripped a little. I didn't bust my butt liek that other girl though.
I've been plenty of funnyt things happen backstage. One of my favorite happened with I was 12 and starting to compete with the "big" girls. Backstage, you see more fake hair, nails and other applicances than at a plastic surgeons office. One girl I was up against was 14 at the time and had a very low cut dress on. And to make the cleavage peek out, her mother taped her boobs together which was okay, alot of people do that. But it was a screaming, crying night mare when her mother started to pull the dress off and the tape just yanked off. LOL
I've never met any "famous" pageant queens. I'd love to meet Vanessa Williams one day. And you're so lucky to have met her. I know of a couple who were on TV for documentaries, but it's not like we're BFFs or anything. LOL.
That illiterate girl was a shame and gave pageant girls everywhere a bad name. Shameful.
I will when I get a chance to watch it.
I'll have to check around for video., Usually videoing at pageants is forbidden, you know since the whole JonBenet issue got everyone worried that people were filming girls for "the wrong reasons". My friend got his camera taken at a pageant I did a while back.  :( He was pretty miffed.

@Woops: Unfourtunately YES, I've seen that disaster on film. "Whazupwitu" is just something I'd like to forget and it only came about because Eddie was in Michael's Remember the Time video.  I liked Eddie's other song "Party All the Time". I didn't like it and I just kind of wish he'd opened his mouth and changed the concept, or put a thermometer on a light bulb and faked sick to get out of it. LOL.

Great questions. Please ask more.  ;D

I've got a friend, who knew this girl ... that was able to get herself and him ... a backstage pass to say hello to Michael when he was doing his 'Bad' tour back in Sydney (late 80's ? ). He got his photo snapped with him. Anyway, this guy's who's maybe 5 foot 9 ... reckons Michael aint that tall .... and actually stands on his 'tippy toes' ... when having his pic taken ........ to make himself appear taller !

Hi Mr. Mister!  ;D

Michael Jackson is 5'10'' tall. I don't think Michael stands on tip toe, but I do know that he does have lifts built into some of his shoes to make him appear taller. He's not doing a full blwon stilleto like Mr. Prince, but he's getting a little help.  :)  And if he stood near me and tried to pop on his toes, I'd grab his arm and pull him back down to Earth. LOL.

I found a pic of Michael with a group of people:

I don't see a pic.  :( Will you post it? :D Or were you refrencing the pic you quoted. I'm pretty sure it's else "Beat It", because it calls for him and his back  up dancer to do synchronized movements.  :P

And since Ms Ross and Mr Jackson were so close I might as well ask you if you ever saw Lady Sings the Blues and what you thought of that.


And since Michael has other famous friends I will ask

What is your fav Liz movie?
Your fav. Macauly Movie
Your fave ep of Webster (if you ever got to see it)
Your fave Brooke Shields thingy....wait- they hung out in the early 80s right?
Your fav Spielberg movie
& your fave feldman flick

Do you have that MJ/ET record or tape?

Hi Y'all!  ;D

@Philip: Yes, I know Mike was in the movie. It was the only reason I went to see the film. Michael played "Agent M". Can't say I dug his hair cut much, but he looked awfully cute in that black suit. That's the ONLY time I've ever seen Michael Jackson in a "normal" suit.

@Snoz: Wow alot of questions! Here goes:

--I don't beleive you've asked me about The Wiz, before, but it was a descent movie for the era and all. But I do think it was a stretch to have Diana Ross play Dorothy. She was 34 at the time the film was made and in the original story, isn't Dorothy a teenager? I mean really. But other than that, the filmn was funny and the performances were entertaining. I especially loved th aprt where Michael fainted upon meeting the "great and powerful Oz".  ;D

--I saw Lady Sings the Blues too. It was a nice movie, but I didn't know much about Billie Holiday. So it took me a while to really understand it. But it's a descent film. I like Mahogany better, though.  :)

--My favorite Elizabeth Taylor movie is, and I hope I'm calling the name correctly, is "Suddenly Last Summer". I'm not exactly sure of the title, but there was one scene where Liz's husband in the movie took her racehorse and rode off with it. In the woods the horse threw him off and knocked him out. When he came to, there was a naked man stealing the horse! LOL! I loved it. It was hilarious. I also liked "Butterfield 8". I've seen some of her films. (Ask me about Jimmy Stewart and I'll talk your ear off. LOL)

--I adore Macauly Culkin. I really liked him as an adult in the movie "Saved" where he played the handi-capable brother to Mandy Moore's lead character. He really is a cute man.  8)

--I vaguely remember "Webster". I used to watch the reruns when I was home sick from school. LOL. I don't know much about the show. But Emanuel Lewis was a cutie.

--Define "thingy" please.  ;) I've seena few of her movies, "Blue Lagoon", "Pretty Baby" (which just scared the hell outta me as a 10 year old) and I've seen her tv shows. I liked her best in the jeans ads. And when she was on Mike's arm at events.  :)

--WOO! My fave Spieldberg movie? YAY! I love the "Amazing Stories: The Movie" the best. Where he adapted the stories from the series. Man, i could watch that ALL DAY. LOL.

--I don't like Corey Feldman since his falling out with Michael. Sorry.  :) But I have seen "The Goonies".

--Yes, that was his last film appearance because for the next 18 months, he was tied up in litigation.  >:(

@Philip: I didn't like the haircut on Michael. Everything else was nice.

Great questions y'all! Please ask more!

In the original Wiz of Oz (the book) Dorothy is supposed to be about 10. In the Judy Garland flick she is about 16.  I like Diana Ross' Dorothy because she isn't young...she's sheltered. She comes from this hard neighborhood but she hasn't really experienced the world so to jump from the cold city her aunt's protected her from to the wonders of Oz well that's just overwhelming.


--I saw Lady Sings the Blues too. It was a nice movie, but I didn't know much about Billie Holiday. So it took me a while to really understand it. But it's a descent film. I like Mahogany better, though.  :)



Its because of Lady Sings the Blues that I love Billie Holliday. . . Mahogany was alright but I get sick of that song after awhile.

You know it was silly of me to ask because I haven't seen alot of liz's films.  but I was curious.




--I adore Macauly Culkin. I really liked him as an adult in the movie "Saved" where he played the handi-capable brother to Mandy Moore's lead character. He really is a cute man.  8)



He was really good in Saved... I really liked his appearance as a "green" attorney on Will & Grace!

You defined it just fine... she has done movies, ads and TV so I just encompassed her work into the term "thingy"  ;D




--WOO! My fave Spieldberg movie? YAY! I love the "Amazing Stories: The Movie" the best. Where he adapted the stories from the series. Man, i could watch that ALL DAY. LOL.





Hmmm never got around to seeing this... guess I gotta check it out.

This was the 30th anniversary concert from 2001. An d I purposefully found a pic like this. It's not that becoming on him. I mean the color is fine, it's been black since 1958, but the shape there is doing nothing to accentute his facial shape at all. It's making his face too broad across the cheeks and it didn't move natually at all. I have that concert. His hair was moving totally out of tandem with the rest of him. Follically speaking, it was a bad year for him. Musically, it was pretty good. And I was floating when Invincible went to #1.

Hey Y'all!

@Bookmistress: Wow some nice questions:

--Michael's first costume was sewn for him by his mother, for the first talent show he did as a 5 year old in elementery school. It was a simple little suit. (Cause it was like 1963 at the time lol)

--I hope you mean what was his last costume onstage, for performing. The last "real" costume I saw Michael in...was a few years ago when he was on the BET Awards with the late James brown. His outfit that night was the BEST, the BEST. I have ever seen him in.

http://www.fanpix.net/photos/7L/59/5759_large.jpg
I haven't found the exact pic of the outfit, but it's close to this. Heavily embellished jeans and a matchiong white top and rhinesstoned shoes. Why he's putting that girl's shoe on for her, I dunno. WHO wears flip flops to an MJ party anyway? LOL

--Michael is fond of his own personal designer, Michael Bush, and of Calvin Klein.

--Michael is a costume repeater. As metioned above he wrewore his embellished jeans to his 45th b-day party a few years back. Those jeans made a THIRD appearance at a charity benefit Michael atteneded. (he paired it with a black top that time)  8-P

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20032005/col/speech/017.jpg
A better look of said outfit. Not quite sure what he was doing here, but he looks cool.  8)

THIS is my favorite outfit repeat of all time:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/grammy_84/press/023.jpg
February 28, 1984, Michael sported this teal bejewled number to the 26th Annunal Grammy Awards. (Where he won 8 of the 13 awards he was nominated for.)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/whitheouse/award/016.jpg
May 14, 1984. Less than three months later, Michael rewore the Grammys jacket to the  White House where the late President Reagan presented Michael with an award. Mike, it's the President, you kinda coulda put on something  else.  ;D He looked cute though.

--Nothing goes onto Michael's body without his approval. Whether it's a spangles jacket or a pair of size 32 undies, he approves and puts his input into everything. Like for Thriller, he got right in with the tchnicians with razor blades and shredded the jacket for the zombie sequence. Michael is a perfectionist. You hand him an outfit, he'll push it around and hook it the way he wants. Like the Bille Jean outfit (video) it was his idea to wear the red spotted bow tie. He puts in on everything.

@Mr. Mister:
--Mj's middle costume. Well, I dunno.  ;D But I'll take a stab in the dark and say it's the outfit hanging in the abolute center of his closet.  ::) Hee-hee.
--His least favorite designer? He doesn't like designers that use fur. Michael is pro-animal rights and doesn't like fur. He thinks animals shouldn't have to die for the sake of fashion. (It doesnt' stp him from wearing a full snakeskin suit, but I'm not gonna argue the point with him.)
--Um, yes. There's outfits he hasn't repeated. Some I wish he would. Like the red leather trousers he wore the heck out of in the Blood on the Dance floor video. 1997 was a good year.  ::)
--And no, Michael doesn't smoke. The last time he smoked, was when the spark lit him up during the Pspsi-cola commercial.

Great questions guys! Please ask more! This is fun!  8)

Hi Y'all!  ;)

@Butterball: Yes, I have seen the Ghosts short film. It took me six long years to get a hold of it--tape it and see it, but I got it and I LOVE it. Michael was so cute and he almsot had me fooled when he was dressed as the Mayor/ His eyes gave him away. I remeber sitting and watching and being like "Michael?"  :o He almost had me fooled. ALMOST. But I know his eyes. LOL. I also have "The Making of Michael Jackson's Ghosts" and it's hilarious because there are little kids on the set and a little girl asks him, "Are you REALLY Michael Jackson?" and he has to convincer her it's really him. LOL. And yes him dancing as the Mayor was funny. I love in the making of clip, as Michael is dancing, you can hear the director, Stan Winston scream "The Mayor isd getting funky! Oh God! The Mayor can MOONWALK!" I loved it! I hope Michael never gets fat cause that was pretty awkward watching a "250 pound" Michael dancing the moves of a  120 pound Michael.

Hey Snoz.  ;D

--No, there aren't any pictures of Michale Jackson trick or treating. Michael grew up as a Jehovah';s Witness and it's agaisnt thier teachings to celebrate "pagan" holidays. But I know as an adult, before he moved away, Michael would host parties and things of the sort at his Neverland Valley Ranch. Michael's favorite costume is his Charlie Chaplin outfit. I've seen Michael dress as Charlie two times. Once when he was about nineteen and again when he was in his thirties. It was pretty neat.  ;)

--Gosh, my favorite video costume.  :D Gee, if I had to pick I'd pick what Michael "wore" in the You Are Not Alone video.  ;) Can't really post a pic of that here, since Mr. Jackson was in his birthday suit in that video, but another ensemble I have a prticular liking for is this:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/dangerous/shortfilms/itc/001.jpg
Michael in his muscle shirt and clingy black pants in the In The Closet video. Saw this for the firs ttime when I was 11, and I was HAPPY!  ;D Hey look! Michael has a muscle!

--I also took a shine to this look:

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/history/shortfilms/botdf/001.jpg
Michael in red satin AND red leather WITH a French braid ponytail?  :o Life was GOOD!

--My least fave video outfit? Gosh.  :( I'm not really used to pointing out the flaws. *searching through pics*  I really do like all the outfits that Michael has worn in his vides, but if I absolutely HAD to choose, I'd choose his plaid get ups from the Say, Say, Say video.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/shortfilms/say/002.jpg
Is he singing to me, or selling me a used car?  :( And he knwos it's all wrong!

--Remember  The Time: Michael Bush had a major hand in helping Michael Jackson create the look. Origianlly I heard that Michael was only suppsoed to wear the little kilt looking thing, but since he was so shy, Michael added the gold shirt to his outfit. And here's some pics!

Speaking of Say Say Say wasn't it just creepy that Michael was trying to hook up with Latoya in that vid? I mean I know its just acting but there is a limit to how far my imagination can stretch.

Hi Snoz!  ;D

--That's okay. Sometimes I forget about the JW thing too. I don't know what his particular affiliation is at the moment. The only ones I know is that the res tof his family is into it and Jermaine is a Muslim now.

--That really kinda creeped me too. I'm not that fond of Latoya to start with and that just uncurled my hair to see that. Like how many models are running around LA at any given time? Michael could have gotten any one of them to sit and look cute for a while.  Heck, if I had been more than a fetus at the time, I'd have done it!  ;D

--KARMA! I've been waiting for someone to ask me that question! I personally stand on Michael's side. And it's not just form the viewpoint of my being a Michael Jackson fan. That has nothing to do with it. Even if I hated Michael's guts I'd still side with him on that debate. Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono should have kept thier mouths closed. In the 80s, the Beatles catalouge came along and up for sale. At the time, Paul and Yoko were going in together to bid on it so that they could share the royalties from the music. At sone point, Yoko mentioned it to Michael, who was pretty good friends with her son, Sean. (the little brown haired boy in the Moonwalker film) At the time. Michael jokingly said that he'd bid on it. Somewhere along the line, Michael realized just how lucrative an investment that catalouge would be and all hell broke loose, for lack of a better term. The bidding flew back and forth. Paul and Yoko put up 45 million dollars between the two of them.
It fell onto Michael. Paul and Yoko flipped when Michael put in the WINNING bid for 48.5 million. And now if he sold it, he could get as much as a billion dollars for it. And his releationship with Paul and Yoko has been strained ever since then. I don't particularly care. If you want to keep  other people out your business, don't invte them into it to start with, Michael carpe diem-ed and now he's sitting on the pile instead of them.

Great questions. I love when I get to explain things like that! Thank you!  ;D If you have more like that, please send them along!  ;D

Hi Philip! :

Blanket is called Blanket because it's a label of affection. Like you "blanket someone with love". That's what it means. And no, no one knows who his mother is. She was a hired surrogate and would like to keep her identity underwraps.


And before you ask, honey, it AIN'T me.  :)

Please ask more questions!

wait  so what's blanket's real name and is Prince the other kids real name?  Are there two or three kids?

Wasn't the mom revealed in that interview the British guy did? Or did you not see that because it was sort of negative even tho Michael gave that guy so much access into his world?

I may still have a copy of that on VHS but I'm not sure. If you want as I go through my many other projects I have to sift through I will let you know (probably in July  ;D ) when I come across it.

Hey Y'all!

@Philip: Yes, I answered the question. I'm only 22 now, and I was around 16 at the time Blanket was born, so I CAN'T be the surrogate since legally, I was underaged at the time. LOL. I can't beleive I just explained that!  ;D And I can't stand Martin Bashir, he is a pompous, arrogant man and I'd care not to discuss him any further. Thank you.  :)

@Snoz: The children's names are as follows:

Prince Michael Jackson, Jr. (the oldest boy)
Paris Katherine Michael Jackson (the girl)
Prince Michael Jackson III (Blanket)

They said that the mom was a black woman. They revealed her race, not her actual identity. I saw the interview, I have it on tape. I just don't care for the interviewer at all. He's just not the sort of person I beleive that Michael should be consorting with and I just really hate poor Michael discovered that the hard way. But he's lived, learned from the mistake, is wiser and has grown more as individual.
And well Martin Bashir...well you know.  ::)

Michael's two oldest children were mothered by a white woman (I think she was a receptionist at one of his doctor's offices or something.)  They were married for a couple years.

Debbie Rowe (married from 15 November 1996 - 8 October 1999) (divorced)

Sorry, I mistunderstood your question, you were asking about my question, whether Michael had married the kids's nanny...and if a public record in the U.S. was filed?
I don't think there is a public database (especially for places like Las Vegas, which typically has alot of marriages), or at least I don't know of any online anyway.

I don't live anywhere near Las Vegas, or really care that much to go there and look for a certificate in public records (if they are even open to the public.)

Hi Y'all! Gosh, this is gonna be a challenge.

@Butterball: Nothing. As far as know, since her reality show tanked after like 4 episodes, I haven't heard anything from Latoya Jackson. But in all honesty, I don't really keep up with her all that much. I have other interests that hold my attention. (Like her brother Michael.  ::) ) And there is kind of a rift between the more loyal fans and Latoya because of the way she betrayed Michael in the 90s trying to boost up her image and all. Well, it did help her album sell tens of copes. I'm so over it personally, I mean that's her trip and she can do what she wants, but it's not like I'm a fan of her or anything. I just associate her with being Michael Jackson's older sister.

@Snoz: Michael's two oldest are bi-racial and allegedly Blanket's mother is Black. But they never said what Blanket's mother looked like. She could possibly be a lighter skinned Black woman. My best friend is Black and is often mistaken for White because she is so fairskinned. Black women come in various lovely shades.

@Bookmistess: No, he did not wed his nanny. That got debunked 3 months ago in the MJ circle. And I really don't like that photograph of Michael Jackson. It's really not flattering at all. And I SWEAR Debbie looks like the chick that played Cindy Brady on the Brady Bunch!  :o

@Philip: I don't know about marriage things like that. It never occoured to me to search for it.

@Bookmistress: I don't really pay attention to the marriages Michael has. I mean I know about them of course ::) But I mean it's just not high on my prioroty level as to what he does in his personal life. That's his business. It's the same with Prince, he's got a new flavor with him every like 6 months, so many, I don't even waste time learning thier names anymore. There's a name for HIM, but I can't say it.  ;D LOL. He goes through ladies so much, sometimes I wonder if I've dated him and just can't remember it! LOL!

Very interesting questions! Please ask more. I hope I helped.

Hi Snoz:

I've seen pictures of Michael's children. And the only blonde one was Prince. And he was a BOTTLE blonde anyway. His natural color is sandy brown and Paris and Blanket have sandy brown hair. I mean Michael is holding a baby Prince in his arms and the boy has dark hair. His hair is dyed blonde. Look at the Bashir interview, he has dark roots in his hair. I have some recent pics of the children and I'll post them soon so you can see.  ;D And if you feel you have to disagree with me on that, that's okay. It's your personal opinion and I respect it.  :)

Apollonia I heard on the radio this am that the planned Jacksons tour of the UK has been shelved as Michael has decided to back out of it for personal reasons - have you heard anything on this at all?
http://pnogal32.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/michael-jackson3.jpg

also as your a PRINCE fan aswell here's another question,
in the 'GET OFF' video do you know if that is Wendy and Lisa performing with PRINCE?





I wanna guess the period...cuz I don't recall the year.  The suit, the umbrella....was this around the time he was on trial (the second time)?

Tiffeny will give the year if she chooses to admit the event occurred  ;)

Hey Y'all!  ;D

@Mr. Mister: Be glad I have a sense of humour. And Halloween is over.  ;) LOL. Nice photoshop effort though. LOL.

@Gibbo: Thanks! And no, the pic didn't throw me. I think I'd notice if Michael was suddenly sporting size "F" boobs.  ;D I'm very well studied in MJ photos.  ;)

@Andria: Gosh, here we go:  It has been proven in court that the entire "Jesus Juice" scenario was not Michael's invention. It was made up by the porsecution and the alleged victim's mother. Yes, Michael did drink wine out of Coke cans on flights to soothe his nerves because he's a nervous flier, but he NEVER himself called it "Jesus Juice" And I don't percieve Michael Jackson as "weird". He is just a little bit eccentric and often misunderstood.  8) And the drinks were in Coke cans because Michael is shy about having children  or anyone else see him drink. And only he had access to the special cans, you can't just go and get it. Only HE had access to them.  Michael is 50 years old, he can drink until he's stumbling stupid if he so chooses. Nice question Andria.  ;)

@Babooshka: Yes, I have heard a little bit of talk about this. At this time, Michael is currently trying to put a new music cd together and he wants to devote all his time and energy to that project. And I'd really rather a new music CD at the moment becuase the market is flooded with "Greatest Hits" albums. I have five of my own. I want some new mucsic. In the MJ workd, a new album means new videos, prospective concerts and interviews and the whole promotional calvacade. I'd rather that. No offense ot the other Jacksons, but I want some new stuff from Michae. I'm tired of b uying all Prince stuff!  :(

And as far as the Prince question goes, that's not Wendy and Lisa. That's "Diamond and Pearl" They were only around for the "D&P" album and tour. The dancers real names are Lori Elle and Robia LaMorte.  Prince picked them because they resembled each other. He has a real set of Twins performing with him now. Add thier ages together and they're stil younger than him.  ;D

@Snoz: Yeah Snoz, this was one of the outfits he wore to his trial in 2005. And Yes I do acknowledge the trial. June 13th in the MJ world is a "holiday" because it's the anniversay of the day that Michael Jackson was exonerated. It's called "Vindication Day" or "V-Day". It's just a simple MJ day for me and my friends. We watch his videos and play his music and it's just simple. I do more for his birthday. LOL.

Great questions! Please ask more! And send some pics along for me to put dates on!  ;D (Nothing altered Mr. Mister!  ;) )

did I tell you I was working in dispatch that day... .you may (or may not) have come across this little tidbit about me but I am a police dispatcher in Santa Barbara county....you're still talking to me right?  ;)

Anyway- on that day there were deputies working crowd control outside the courthouse and when the verdict was read the crowd went wild 
(you're not alone in your belief - though we will always disagree on this issue)

anyway one of the deputies keyed his mike (opened the radio channel to transmit) and all you could hear in the dispatch center was the crowd going wild it was pretty funny...

Hey Snoz!  :)

I don't mind that you work for the police. I don't have any harsh feelings against the police or anything. Why would I? I have no bitter feelings towards anyone.  :) Especially not you, you're a friend.  :) And that's cooll about the crowd roaring on the mike. I'd have been there myself, but I had to stay and take care of my mom. But I was rooting at home! LOL!  ;D And don't worry about disagreeing about Michael, it's okay. We agree on other things. It'd be boring if we agreed on EVERYthing.  :D

Yeah ..the old " I'm rooting for the team"......I love that term!!  ;D  However, the word 'rooting' is still recognized in it's correct meaning as well here....just not used very often for the reasons Alan has outlined.

If someone is 'rooted' ...they could also mean very tired. We Aussies tend to twist meanings around and it can be very difficult to have a 'non dirty' conversation.... ;)

That's an interesting video. I like it.  ;D I doubt I would have my bridesmadis and groomsmen do that. LOL. I don't think they'd be up to it. LOL.

My first song would probably be "You Are Not Alone" because it's a ncie ballad and I'd like to waltz to it. I'd like a Michael Jackson impersonator, but I have maybe one or two specific men I'd want and unless I could one of them, I'd just dance to Michael's music.  ;D I already know the guys I want and even what thier rates are.  ;)

I don't know if my bridal party would be up to it, if I do get married, but if I do something crazy like that, I'll send you a copy!  ;D I'd much rather do "Bad" like in the video you sent, because I like the choreography a bit better. LOL

That's pretty neat. I haven't had an MJ themed Myspace in a while. I changed it while I'm busy applying for jobs because I heard that some bosses check thier prospectives emplyees Myspace pages and no offense to Michael, but I really don't want him to be my determining characteristic. I'm not solely a Michael Jackson fanatic. I'm a girl who happens to be a Michael Jackson fanantic. After I secured a position, I might put up one. It's no offense to Michael I just hate that some people have a negative opinion of him and let it block out my other attributes that make me a nice and interesting person. (and applicant)

Now if a spot working for Michael Jackson happened to come my way, my page will scream "HEE HEE" everytime you'd go to it. but for now, I'm hanging lowkey.  8)

so Tam posted this in another thread and I thought I'd bring the question to you for her....sorry if she's asked... I didn't feel like reading back over previous posts.





I joined here in January '05. I was looking for the brand name of a pair of jeans from my youth (the 80's) that were very similar to the red and black leather pants Michael Jackson wore in his Thriller video. Nothing ever came of my request, and to this day I am still looking for those jeans! :o ;D




If you or your friends on your MJ board can answer the question I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

Hey Y'all!  ;D

@Woops: No, I haven't had the pleasure of seeing this MJ parody, but I'll give a look-see and tell you what I think of it.  :)

@Philp: At the time, I am not sure of the amouhat Michael paid to the Shiek, but when I learn of it--if the sum is ever relased--I'll pass it along. There is a much doubt that Michael paid the full amount of 7 milion dollars though.  ;) It doesn't nother me so badly. I had friends who was whining about it like they had to pay it out of poclet for him or something.  :( I'm cool with it. Just sitting and paitently waiting for the new album.

@Snoz: I'm not qite sure that the trousers Tam is looking for are from the Thriller music film. In Thriller, Michael wore a pair of striahgt red denim trousers.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/shortfilms/thriller/001.jpg

Now from what I've leanred over the years about the Thriller film was that Michael's usually wore Calvin Klein jeans (so I'm guess sing that those are CK jeans) Ola Ray (the woman) wore Guess jeans--if you watch the video closely, you can see the little triangle shaped guess label on the back of her jeans. Michael's jacket was a custom made piece. And all the zombie's outfits were bought second hand from a local Salvation Army. At the moment I can't recall Michael wearing two-tones trousers while performing Thriller, but I'kl dive into my archives and look around to make sure.  ;)

Great questions and please ask more.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  ;D

I had friends who was whining about it like they had to pay it out of poclet for him or something.  :( I'm cool with it. Just sitting and paitently waiting for the new album.

@Snoz: I'm not qite sure that the trousers Tam is looking for are from the Thriller music film. In Thriller, Michael wore a pair of striahgt red denim trousers.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/shortfilms/thriller/001.jpg

Now from what I've leanred over the years about the Thriller film was that Michael's usually wore Calvin Klein jeans (so I'm guess sing that those are CK jeans) Ola Ray (the woman) wore Guess jeans--if you watch the video closely, you can see the little triangle shaped guess label on the back of her jeans. Michael's jacket was a custom made piece. And all the zombie's outfits were bought second hand from a local Salvation Army. At the moment I can't recall Michael wearing two-tones trousers while performing Thriller, but I'kl dive into my archives and look around to make sure.  ;)

Great questions and please ask more.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  ;D

Hi Mr. Mister ;D

First costume: The simple black suit and bow tie in Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
Last costume: The black suit Michael wore in You Rock My World (looks like the man came full circle)

My favorite costume of the aformentioned two is the DSTYGE   ensemble and I'm quite sute that the YRMW suit was more expensive. It fit Michael a lot better than the previous suit and he didn't look like he should be bussing tables at Koi on LaCiieniga.  ;D

@Snoz: My favorite song is probably "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". I think it was quite funny that the Jackson Five made christmas songs and were singing about Santa, but since they were Jehoavah's Witnesses, they didn't celelbrate it. Just really funny. On a wild note,

And are you serious? There really was a Quantum Leap wher ehe taught a little Michel to dance? You're not yanking my chain are you? I thought i had seen every Quantum Leap. I hate I missed that one!  :( But that's cute. Big bumbling uncoordinated Sam teaching a little, limber, agile Michael Jackson to dance. It's too hilarious!  ;D

It's amazing!  :o And yes, I've seen the Goonies. I used to like it until Corey Feldman did what he did to MJ. I just hate he wore a Purple Rain t-shirt in that movie. You know I have that same Prince and the Revolution poster that Cory Haim's character had. (Mine is still folded and tucked into my Purple Rain vinyl, I have no place to hang it) Thank you for the clip! I appreciate it!  ;)

@Roby: Thank you! and the cake was yummy. Well the half of it my friend and I ate. Wanna hear a weird tale. The day after Michael's birthday, everyone in town was evacuated for Hurrican Gustav I beleive. The uneaten half of the cake was left in the fridge and it spoiled when our ower went out during the storm!  >:( But when I got home and got everything cleaned up, I made a fresh one!  ;D

@Gibbo: Michael is human and he does occasionally perform so I assume that after a show Michael doesn't excactly smell like spring daisies. (although I read a report from a fan who danced onstage withh him and she said even though he was sweaty, he smelled really NICE)  But I do know that he is a very clean man and if you just bumped into him on the street he'd smell like deodorant and expensive colonge.

@Snoz: Honestly, do you think Michael would even want to have a poor souless individual who is so lacking in the mind department and following him so tightly that they'd WANT to do that deed for him? I mean I love Michael Jackson. I do consider myself in the legion of fanatics, but there a fine line between being inspred and liking someone and just being all over the top with it. It's the over the top people that you see getting pulled off of Michael when they tackle him on sight. It's been done before, trust me, I've seen it. I saw a young girl darn near drag him off stage by the collar of his shirt once.

Sure I 'd have stars in my eyes if I ever met Michael but I'd NEVER do anything deameaning around him.  ;D Now trust me, I do know people who will and it's shameful because they make the entire fanbase look like a bunch of looney tunes and I don't appreciate that. I'm smart, I'm educated and I think the bulk of the fanbase is like me.

I must just be used to seeing Michael in unique outfits because this was just another day at the office for me. I saw him inthe blue with the mask on and all and it really had no effect on me. My friends and I were commenting on how pretty his eyes were and were really barely paying attention to the ensemble really. It doesn't bother me. I'm just happy to SEE Michael out doing anything. He's not hiding. Any star can fire and hire a new stylist. I can even rework the outsit he has on if I felt like it.

I don't mind.  :)

Hi Snoz!

Okay, maybe the look is a little over the top, but that's Michael Jackson. I mean you wouldn'y catch him in Levis and Polo shirt. I'm just so used to seeing Michael in unusual attire that, really, this isn't odd to me. LOL.  :o

But to suit your discerning palate, I did manage to track down a recent photo of Michael shopping and wearing more "normal" clothing. Plus it was a nice excuse to go look at Michael.  ;)

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/20062008/various/offthewall/012.jpg

How's that?  :) Michael actually looks like he's posing! LOL! So cute. And if you look really close, you can see he's holding Blanklet's hand.  :) I dig his new haircut; he needed it.

Please send more questions!

Hey Butterball!

Blanket's head wasn't covered the entire time. I saw him *gasp* unmasked in the store and he is a cute little boy. He's got Michael's bone structiure and kind of long brown hair. It might be blown straight or flat ironed because in the pics it was really straight and his hair is naturally curly.

If I can track down the pics, I'll post them. (You know I'm track them down! )  ;)

@Mr. Mister: Thank you...I think. LOL. I like the way Michael looks. I like people with a unique and unconventinal appeance. Michael is very pale with the milky, alabaster complexion. I like that. Prince is tiny with a large Zepplinn head...I like that.  I like people with a special air about them and that don't look like the genenral masses. What's more different than a man in glitter socks? LOL.

As far as Michael's view of Obama's victory, I'm not sure. I'm sure that as a Black American man, Michael is happy for him, of course. And once on an outting one of Michael's sons were wearing an Obama mask to hide his face. I can't say anything for sure because I don't personally know Michael Jackson. I can only speculate. But I will say that Michael beleives in sincerety and fairness and is probably happy for anyone who succeeds in what they set out to do.

I don't think anyone has ever asked me about Michael liking sports before. Well, my sources tell me that Michael isn't too keen on sports in general. (I mean could you see Michael Jackson in the spandex tossing the pigskin around and getting ground into the 50 yard line?) But if  had to guess about a team I'd say that since Michael lives in California, he likes the San Franscico 49ers. And if he was dating me, he'd be into the Dallas Cowboys.  ;) (He looks good in  blue and silver, it'd rock! LOL)

OH MY GOD!! Is this true???

Jacko needs lung swap

MICHAEL JACKSON is battling a genetic disease that has left him half blind and needing a lung transplant, it was claimed last night.
The superstar, 50 — seen in a wheelchair earlier this year — is said to be so frail he can barely speak.

Jacko’s secret was revealed by his biographer Ian Halperin, who declared: “He needs a lung transplant, but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping.

“It’s the bleeding that’s the most problematic part. It could kill him.”

Halperin, an award-winning investigative journalist, said Jacko was stricken with an inherited condition called A1AD — alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency. Sufferers lack a protein which protects the lungs.

Halperin, a Canadian who has written for respected Rolling Stone magazine, said: “He can barely speak. The vision in his left eye is 95 per cent gone.

Advertisement

“For years Michael has been working with his doctors to make sure it doesn’t progress.

“He has been on many medications that have stabilised him.”

Jacko’s brother JERMAINE confirmed: “He’s not doing so well right now. This isn’t a good time.”

Skint Jacko, who was cleared of child abuse three years ago, is being forced to flog off treasures from his Neverland ranch — which he has now abandoned.

And a woman calling herself Billie Jean Jackson — who claims she is the star’s wife — is suing him for £700,000.

She insists she is the mother of his youngest child Prince Michael II and is demanding joint custody.

Hi Sir Billzy!

My aren't you the inquisitive one today.

--No, Michael isn't crazy enough to try to throw his fanbase under the bus like Prince did in 1993. We can deal with the glitter socks and sequined underwear, but he knows to leave his name as "Michael Jackson" and not change it to some  odd squiggle.

--Of course Michael's paren't were proud. They love him and support him in all that he does.

--Do you mean his middle name? Because if you do, it's Joseph.

And  (cursing) NO, that's not true. It's all a bunch of hooey and don't beleive it. Three different MJ sites have debunked this and I had to personally calm three of my MJ fan friends because they were in tears about it. It's not true. The media has "killed" Michael three different times. Besides you know if something were going on it'd be packing the airwaves like a malignant cancer man. And so far I haven't heard anything. Just the usual news fodder--What kind of dog the Obamas are getting and how the nation is in a recession. NOTHING about Michael Jackson.

He is not sick and was not sick. Michael Jackson is 50 years old. He's a mature man. Mature people have to have routine check ups now and then. Michael was gong around for a routine check up. Michael decided to wear PJs. There's no law saying he has to put on a crystal jacket and single glove to see the doctor. He can ride in a wheelchair if wants. Some of it just dramatics and theatrics.

Hey Butterball!

I've read that Michael wears a brand of loafers called "Bass Weejun" and that Michael started wearing them because they resembled the shoes that Michael's idol, James Brown. (I never noticed James shoes though, so I can't clarify this) I also heard that these were the kind of shoes Jackie Wilson wore--he was also an influence on Michael as a child. Michael has been wearing loafters for a very long time.Not to call Michael old, because he's NOT, but he's been wearing those shoes for quite a while. (Well until recently, he's been wearing little brown slippers!  >:( Don't think I didn't notice!) There's alot of times I'v e wanted to go into Michael's closet with a box and throw out the stuff I don't like. (Let's start with that pajama/ garden hat combo a few posts down...)

He's the King of Entertainment, he's gotta watch what he wears. The man is a style icon!

I was going to say, b4 I read your caption under the photo, that it does resemble the Performance on "Motown 25". I see that Randy is blocked out in the photo, can see just one of his legs...not sure what the purple thing is sticking out. Didn't know for the longest, that the boots he was wearing were actually braces for his legs, after a bad car accident.

P.S. After further review, that purple thing must be Jermaine's guitar, or a prop guitar?

A friend of mine found this interesting video of MJ from his History world tour in 1997. A fan was able to dance onstage with Michael, and well, you'll see.  ;D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOUGpKjEcgo


Please ask more questions!


Funny video...looks like she got really personal with MJ...especially when she dropped to her knees.  :o Question tho', where was security? She would have been shot on site.  ;D Must have been set up, you think? I've watched a lot of concert footage of MJ, and you see the girls crying and fainting. Reminds me of a "Priceless commercial...

$200.00 for an MJ concert ticket.
$150.00 for a concert outfit.
$500.00 for a limousine for you and your friends to the concert.
Getting up in the front row and passing out and missing the whole concert...
Priceless.

Hi Y'all!  ;)

@Butterball: Yeah poor Randy was wearing braces o nhis legs. But he looked FINE at the Motown 25. He was always my 3rd fave Jackson brother after Michael and Marlon.  :) He was so cute. He lookedlike Michael back in the day. (Now he looks more like Tito.)  That purple "thing" is Jermaine's guitar and it is a real guitar cause I saw him play it.

http://mjjpictures.free.fr/thriller/awards/motown25/medley/003.jpg

Jermaine is holding it up.

Oh, that girl going on stage with Michael was routine. They do that at every show, bring a girl onstage to be with Michael for a few moments. She got a little too friendly though. LOL. I'd never faint after blowing all that cash to see Michael. OH NO! LOL.

PLease aslk more questions!

Hey Philip!

Gosh, Latoya really is going to be on that show? Oh I hope she doesn't do or say anthing that will sabotage Michael making a comeback. She can make a flaming fool of herself, I don't care. I just hope she doesn't drag Michael through the muck with her.

I got enough of her on that other reality show where she was playing "Flashlight Cop".

Please ask more questions.


Hey that celebs as cop show was really entertaining.

I especially liked when LaToya went out as a decoy prostitute..that was hilariously unbelievable I mean she's LJ for crissake.  who doesn't recognize that face....no matter what she's had done to it!



oh and then when she grabbed that guy's junk when she was patting him down (frisking him) yeah....that's not how it's done  ;D

Well, Michael Jackson had an outing on January 14, 2009 and there's some pics from it that I'd like to share with everybody. It might inspire some questions.

Somewhere under that guise is Michael Jackson. Apparently he stopped the Zorro look and is going for the Invisible Man look now.

Hi Y'all.  :)

@Silver: You're a laugh riot my friend. Has Michael been in a beauty pageant.  ;D No, but in 1968 when he was about 9 or 10, Michael and his brothers performed at the Miss Black America pageant.  ;D So while he wasn't actually competing in the show, he was a part of the entertainment.  ;)  ;D I dunno why I remember stuff like that, but I do. There must be a special place in my brain for MJ facts. LOL.

@Snoz: I'll take a whack at your questions:

--I can't exactly read the label on them, but I could make out chipolte on the bag. It might be Doritos, it might not be. But if it's chipolte its safe to say those are tortilla chips. I guess Michael has a need to burn his tounge.
--I'm quite sure he'll take the mask OFF to eat. He can't eat the chips through osmosis or anything like that. He's wearing a simple 10 cent paper mask. I've worn them before when my mother was in the hospital. I have seen Michael wear custon silk masks, and I suppose he just wanted something different.
--I doubt he's afraid "catching" anything. But he did go into an open medical building and there are sick peole there. He might not have wanted thier germs...also due to Michael's Vitiligo, his skin is especially sensitive to the sun. That's why he looks like a mummy and is all covered and wrapped up. He's protecting himself. It wouldn't help if he got a sunburn and was red and chapped and peeling.  :-\\
--Michael can still breath the air. He's not gonna stick his head in the chip bag and inhale.
--His right eye doesn't look out of wack. Please don't call him "Wacko" thank you. I've seen that expression on his face before--he's scared. But you'd be scared yo iff you had paprazzi all over you like fleas on a dog.

Great questions! Please ask more!  ;D

Why doesn't Michael Jermaine Jackson just release an album and go on tour to prove to everyone that he is still a talented, normal performer?

What's he got up his sleeves?  Shorts?

Does Michael know that wearing a mask might make him seem a bit crazy?  Lunatic?  Freakizoid?

Is Michael still planning on buying Halloween and turning it into a religious holiday?

Does Wacko Jacko know that he's not wearing lipstick?

Hi Billzy.

You really like trying my patience, don't you.

Are you asking why Michael and Jermaine haven't toured together? At this time, Jermaine is currently pursuing a country singing career--he's actually quite good at singing country--and Michael is negotiating a tour.  ;D And please beleive, I'm waiting with bated breath for the chance to snag a ticket.

??? Michael has his little arms under his sleeves and his nether regions under his shorts.  ;)

Michael wears the mask to get a rise out of people and it must work, because you're asking about it.  ;D

You're funny. Michael buying Halloween. And technically Halloween is a religious holiday. It's the eve of All Souls Day, which is a Catholic holiday. So unless Michael declares a new religion, I doubt he'll take Halloween. (And I do spend my doing other things that bopping to Thriller. I do read books (without pictures in them) and am a regular around the History, and Discovery TV channels.)

Please DON'T call him Jacko. His name is JACKSON. Thank you. And how do you know whether he's wearing lipstick or not? You can't see his mouth! I don't mind that Michael wears cosmetics. He's worn it for decades. It's another day at the office for me. Michael so pale he needs it. I've seen him without it once and I like him better with it. I don't mind. Everyone one in show business wears make up. So i don't care.  :)

Please ask more questions! Thank you!

@ Butterball: The man's name is MICHAEL JACKSON. No Jacko no Wacko. Go to the Department of Records and pull up his birth certificare. The name reads clearly as Michael Joseph Jackson. Don't see a "Wacko" anywhere. Sorry. It's not acceptable to call him Wacko.

@ Cautious Lip: (interesting name my friend) Yes, Michael Jackson is planning a comeback. He's putting together an album, a play and working towards a concert tour. And I am working to save up for my ticket. I had to miss the HIStory concerts and the MSG concerts and I flat refuse to miss Michael if he tours again.

Do you believe in him?  Spiritual?  Deeply?

Is he as mystical as the paint on his face and the plastic pieces that make up his nose?

Hi Billzy:

I'm not familiar with this Jacko person you keep mentioning. This thread is about Michael JACKSON. I don't know of any singers named Jacko. Sorry.  :-\\ Now if you're trying to inquire about MICHAEL JACKSON then I'm sure he'll play a mix of the hits and some new material. MICHAEL JACKSON always does that. And I'm sure none of it will be "wacko". If you want "wacko" you can try a Weird Al Yankovich concert. I hear his stage sets are strange.  :)

The hardest thing I've ever had to defend ad a MICHAEL JACKSON fan was Michael's innocence during the trial in 2005. Alor of people just misunderstand Michael and it's very tiresome to keep rehashing the same ideas to the same hard-headed crowd. I just ignore them and don't care. People can listen to R. Kelly and KNOW tha t he whizzed on an underage girl but want to crucify me for likling MICHAEL JACKSON and he was found NOT GUILTY on 14 counts in the biggest media covereage of a trail since the OJ Simpsons murders. And then they want to say he got off cause he was rich. BS. Martha Stewart went to jail and she is rich, so they need to stop playing that card because that hand is spent!

I beleive in MICHAEL'S capabilites as an artiist and performer. Michael is a human. I DON'T WORSHIP HIM! If you slap him, he will bruise. He's a human being and I realize that. Please STOP questioning my sanity, because I am a very sane and intelligent person. Thank you.

Michael's nose is his nose, he just altered it. You're WEARING ME OUT MAN!  >:( And there's nothing mystical about foundation and concealer. Go to the store, it's in the make up aisle. It's not like there's fairies and pixie dust floating out of Michael's make up case. The inside of his case looks like mine--some eyeliners, some powders, some brushes. GOSH.

Michael writes music that has meaning and a message. And some of his music has an urban flair to it now.

Please ask more (NICE) questions.

Jehovah's Witnesses are a religion. It's a set of beleifs. I can't say too much about it because I'm not a JW. I'm a Baptist. Michael is no longer a member of the Witnesses. He quit in 1983. You can ask Prince though. He's one.  ;D

I can't answer that. I just know that I like him and my group of friends like him.  :)

Hi Y'all!

Earlier today, a friend of mine found an old poem I had written, I think 4 or 5 years ago and I wanted to share it with you. During the start of Michael Jackson's trial, I began writing poetry, just a new way to express myself because at the time I wasn't really into my novel writing. Here's my poem and I hope you like it.

Moonlit Figure

The Moon is high in the sky
Glowing Burning like a lit match
Burning like my want for you
I see you in the window Your moonlit figure
I hear the rustle of your clothing Dropping to the carpet
Your white skin seems to glow in the moonlight
Your moonlit figure beckons me
I can feel your warm breath against my face as your moonlit figure draws me closer
I cannot see your eyes,but i can feel them
More than i feel your hands moving across my body
Your moonlit figure is now against mine.
My cool skin warms next to your hot Moonlit figure
The moon has you in its eyes as we "moonwalk" together
We dance in the moonlight Iam at peace and yet tired at the end of this dance
Your moonlit figure is misty with perspiration
The sun is now rearing its sleepy head and the moon has made its
Descent
The Night is over and day has broken
But night will soon return as will your lovely Moonlit figure.

I like it. :) But mods if it is a little over the top, please let me know and I'll kindly remove it.

Thank you!

I REALLY hope you're yanking my chain and joking. Michael Jackson was cleared of all charged almost years ago. And the statue of limitations from the first set of allegations played out in 2000. And Michael has been moving freely throught he country for months now. Nobody has arrested him.  What is he going to be arrested for? Blinding someone when the light bounces off his sparkly socks?

And YES, he is planning a comeback tour. And I plan to see him if he comes to Texas.  ;D

  Guilty as charged..!

  No chain yanking.  Somwhere back in the mists of time the king of pop was charged with a crime involving inappropriate behavior with minors and was hounded by a bitter, vindictive DA from a southern California city.  He fled the country for some Arab state and sold-off all of his assets except for his nifty Beatles collection (smart move).  Maybe that was what, ten years ago or something?  Seems since then he's been moonwalking across the States.  The joke's on me, I guess...

Hello Dave!

I didn't mean to bw as snarky as I came off as. I truly thought you were kidding me.  :-[ I do apologize.

But I can explain what you're talking about and clear up any misconceptions. You are correct about Michael being accused of lewd behavior. The allegations broke in 2003 in November. And yes, you were also correct about Michael being hounded by a bitter DA. That was Tom Sneddon. (known as Sned-ass to the fans) and I honestly don't know what his vendetta against Michael Jackson was. He was all over Michael in 1993 like fleas on a dog and did the same thing again. I don't know if he just hated Michael as a person or didn't like him because he was a powerful and rih Black pop star. I can't say, I just know he seemed to get an almost erotic pleasure from trying to tear Michael azpart.

After Michael's victory in court, he abruptly resigned from his job. I remember because I bought a cake that said "good riddance to bad rubbish" (I'm kidding, but I wanted to) After the end of the triall, Michael went to the Arab country of Bahrain, because I think he's friends with the Shiek over there or something. After he wore out his welcome there, he bounced around to Ireland, Germany and England before coming back to the United States last year.

He has since bought a new French Style chateau in Bel Air and is now in London prepping for his return to the stage.

Please ask more questionns! I love answering things like this!  :)

I believe it was the "History" CD that MJ had a song related to Tom Sneddon. If I remember right, he used profanity in the song (very uncharacteristic, for MJ) and I know the song ended with the sound of a gunshot. MJ must have been really pissed at this dude for that type of violence in a song.

Hey Butterball!

You are right on the money. I completely forgot about the song on the History album. (It's called DS, but you can clearly hear Michael saying Tom Sneddon) I haven't played History in a while. I've been jamming to remixes of Michael's songs lately.
And yes, Michael was rightly pissed at Tom Sneddon. He was on tour in Thailand when the first allegations broke and his World Tour got cancelled (losing him millions) and he lost his endoresements with Pepsi-Cola (which I refuse to drink) and LA Gear (which no one wears anymore) I'd be pretty steamed. I'd just love to leave Michael in a room with Tom for maybe 10 minutes with nothing but a bare lightbulb hanging and a baseball bat in his hands. Loiusvill Slugger, of course.

http://battersboxonline.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/ls.jpg

Just to see what happens.  ::) I've seen Michael really angry one time and it wasn't pretty at all. LOL.

Please ask more questions.

Little known fact--Growing up as kids in  Gary, Indiana, all the Jackson boys played baseball. (which is why I gave Michael the bat). On several tours, you can see Tito in a glittery baseball uniform. And before he got into music, Jermaine was going to go out for the major league.  ;)

What songs will he sing?  What are his costumes?  What songs will he perform?  What will he wear?  What songs make up the playlist for the concert?  Do you know how he'll dress for the occassion?

Hey Y'all!

@Philip: Good luck on getting tickets. And thank you for the dates. My friend told me that Michael has extended his stay into Feb 2010.  >:( Wish he'd moonwalk over to Texas.

@Billzy: I was a little miffed at Michael for moving from Neverland, but I can't control what he does. Michael is a 50 year old grown man and he can make his own decisions and I respect him enough to respect whatever he decides. I'm not going to the shows in London because I can't fly. I'm terrified of heights and can't fly. Not even for Michael.  :-\\ But I will catch him when he plays in the USA. I'm not sure of what songs he'll sing or what he'll wear, but I'm sure we'll know in due time.

And yeah, I saw American Idol. It was okay.

@Snoz: LOL.

@Butterball: I'm used to hearing stuff like that. I don't like Michael just based on his appearance. I like him for his personality and his looks. I'm not superficial about Michael Jackson. But I do like the way he looks. I find beauty in his unconventinal appearance. I have always liked offbeat people. Why would I want another John Doe when I can like someone who's a stand out?

@Butterball: (see above statement)  :) Plus I think that at 50, Michael will do just fine. I mean James Brown kept performing well into his 70s and even Tina Turner is in her 60s and can still move. (some). I think that Michael is in wonderful shape and will do just fine. And I'll just be excited to see him. Michael is extremely talented. I don't doubt his skills. And as far as the walker goes, I've seen him perform in a wheelchair and he stil lBROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN!  ;)

Hi Everyone!

@Billzy: Michael was in a wheelchair because he had sprained his ANKLE not his wrist. He wouldn't need a wheelchair if he had a sprained wrist. And he can't help it if he's a little clumsy and has an accident. People have accidents.

What would happen if he did all 50 shows? Would your head explode from shock if he did?

And I don't think he's too old to grab his crotch. As long as his "parts" aren't dragging across the stage, I say he can do it.  :) I mean Prince still humps pianos, Michael can grab his groin. I don't care.

Apple, I just wanted to know about MJ.  Did he sing on Thriller or was that someone else?  I remember something similar happened with a group in 1990 or 1991 called Milli Vanilla or something like that.  They pretended they could sing and they were later discovered to be a hoax.  Do you think that MJ faces the same fate?  I hope not!! I hope he never gets caught.  :(

And I' wouldn't touch Eric. He's dating Prince's sloppy seconds--his second ex-wife Manuela. I couldn't marry Prince. He's pretty, but what would we talk about? His shoes? His hair? His guitars? His clothing? (notice I keep mentions stuff about HIM and not ME...) He's just like a Koi pond. He's very attractive to look at, but there's not much depth to him that I can see. But his music ia slamming...mildly off topic. LOL. Who is David Justice?

@Billzy: Sure you can call me Apple.  :) I'm glad that you enjoy my posts. I like to be humorous and informative at the same time. Thank you. Did Michael sing Thriller? That's like asking me if Dolly Parton has big boobs. The answer is a loud, resounding, ringing, "YES!"  Please don't ever compare Michael to those guys from Milli Vanilli. . Michael is nothing like Rob and Fab. (YEAH, I know thier names!) You're comparing a giraffe to an ice cube, there's no similarities at all. Unless there's a little teeny tiny mictophone implanted in Michael's throat, he's singing for himself.

Some of MJ's iconic things will go on display at Hard Rock Cafe in NYC soon.

Hi Y'all!

@Bookmistress: The fanbase is kinda spliit about it. some people want him to get rid of the things that remind him of Neverland and others like me, want him to keep the things and Neverland. But the times, they are a changing and Michael has moonwalked on, and so have I. I've seen the catalouge with Michael's stuff in it. It's online. Michael had so much stuff, I'm surprised he didn't keep broken toes and busted shins because he had so MUCH lawn stuff. SO MANY little brass figures and statutes for his yard. I've seen pics of Neverland.I never saw the damn things , I just wondwer where he kept them placed! Like children playing on slides and running and frolicking and little animals and stuff. Very pretty but there were SO MANY of them!

I looked at alot of nice things and a few things I wanted was, and like please don't laugh at me.

--I wanted his gold and red throne. (Yeah he had a throne in his bedroom, I've seen it. DONT ask how I saw the inside of his bedroom!)
--I want his Red velvet and ermine fur robe. And his Golden crown. (I'm not makiing this up! LOL) 
--The Golden Neverland coat of Arms.
--This little glass encased figurine with a  little Michael doll, ET, Peter Pan, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck wearing silver gloves.
--The heavy beaded brocade paisley coat he wore on the 1984 Victory tour. ( I could never afford it)
--The red stoned glove with the three huge stones on it from Moonwalker. (it's lying on his dressing table with a blue one)
--The Blue and Silver diamond peackcock pinn attatched to the rhinestones hat in Moonwalker (also on dressing table)

Actually I wish I could buy ALL the jewelry that Michael had because he wore a lot of broches back in the day and I wear them alot now. That my thing.

--Oh and I want that golf cart with Michael depicted as Peter Pan on it!  ;D  I'd love to take that down to the country club and cut it loose on the golf greens.

(I have no will power when it comes to buying Michael Jackson stuff. I start wanting a button and come hiome with a U-Haul truck full of stuff!)

I showed Dion, my boyfriend, part of the catalouge and he changed colors. He just couldn't really wrap his head around Michael's collection. He asked me, "Bunny, do you think that's normal? At all?"
And I asked in return, "Is it normal that you have a pair of backless trousers like Prince?"  ::)  He never answered. Just walked away and started watching TV. LOL.

Hello Bookmistress!

Whislt I'm not sure if your inquiry was meant as a joke or not, I wil ltake it seriously and give it a serious answer. Prior to his cosmetic prcedures, Michael Jackson bore a great resemblence to his father Joseph.

No, I didn't mean it as a joke.  Some people like to poke fun, but I rarely do.  ;) :)

Did Michael go to public school before he became famous?

Hi Y'all!

@Davestar: I hoesntly have no idea what video you're talking about. But can I take a stab in the dark and say it was a Weird Al Yankovich video? LOL. I tried.  ;D

@Bookmistress. Yes, Michael to public school at Rosevelt Elementarty school in Gary indiana and very briefly in California around 1970-1971. After that, Michael and his brothers were tutored by a woman named Rose Fine. Michael "graduated" in 1976 at the age of 18.

  Hi,

    It's "Even Better than the Real Thing" by U2.  Near the end, if you blink you'll miss it.  Other look-alikes include Johnny Rotten, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna...

Hi Davester

No wonder I didn't know the answer. I don't like U2. I haven't liked them since I found out that "The Joshua Tree" beat out Michael's "Bad" album for Album of the Year at the 1988 Grammys. I think the "Bad" album should have won.  8-P Not because it was Michael Jackson, but because it really was a great, well orchestrated album. It could have come from anyone--it should have won. And I was ticked exspecially sine Michael brought down the house with his performance and even got PRINCE to get off his purple ass and clap. That deserved a Congressional Medal getting Prince up.

Please ask more questions!  :)

Hey Y'all!

:( Um, I knew you meant the girl refrenced in the song. I was trying to be funny. I'd have to be in a coma not to remember that song. I have THREE Thriller albums in my possesion as of right now. I know the song. Y'all making my look lijke a bad fan. Stop it! LOL!
I made it my main business when I 12 to learn the Thriller album. And it took me ten years to track down my Thriller vinyl. I'm probably the most proud of that. I take great pride in my knowledge of Michael because it wasn't an overnight thing to get where I am. It took an extensive amount of my time. Not that I wouldn't change any of it, it just took along time. Alot of reading, alot of watching different forms of media and lot of listening to stuff. I studied Michael as hard as I did my schoolwork ( and maintained a B average  :D )

That's why I'm sucj a well informed, intelligent fan.  ;D Michael doesn't have enough of them and I refuse to be a mush for brains and embarrass him and myself. Nope I'm articulate and cool tempered. there aren't enough fans like that. Too many have hair-trigger temepers and it makes the entire fan base look retarded.  >:( Just trying to improve the image.  :)

Hey Y'all!

LaToya was NOT in "The Girl is Mine". There is no official video for the song. LaToya was in the video for Paul McCartney's song "Say Say Say" in which Michael dueted. The song can be found on Paul's "Pipes of Peace" album.  :) Paul's late wife Linda (and parnter in the duo Wings) was also in the video.

I told you I knew my MJ trivia.  ;)

Is there any scenario or circumstance that youcould see yourself picking Paul over mj?

Hi Y'all!

@ Davester! You're funny.  ;D

@Snoz: You're asking me if I'd ever pick Paul McCartney over Michael Jackson.  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/08/puke.gif
I'd rather slam my hand in the door of my car. I am not attacted to Paul in any way shape or form. (BTW, John was my favorite Beatle) The only thing I have in common with Paul is that we both inhabit Planet Eart and are both left handed. Other than that, I see nothing.

Now if Paul could introduce me to Prince... ::)

Please ask more questions! Thank you!

Hey Billzy:

Whatever it is you're taking, cut the dose in HALF!  ;D

But honestly, Michael and Paul dating? Please. Neither man is a homosexual. In 1983 (When Say Say Say was made) Michael was dating model Brooke Shields and Paul was marry to his wife Linda.

And really Michael was very cute thing in 1983, do you really think he'd accept PAUL MCCARTNEY as a lover if he was a homosexual? He could have done better.  ::)

Please ask more (sensible) questions!  :) :)

Hi Billzy Dear,

What part of "sensible" is going over your head?  :) Michael is NOT A HOMOSEXUAL! I'm being extremely nice in entertaining the notion. I was joking before, but bringing George and Adam into is  a little much don't you think?

Please ask a non-sexual bias question. Thank you.  :)
