Michael  Jackson
“How many victims must that be? Slaughtered in vain across the land,
And how many strugles must that be?
Before we choose to live the profits plan
Everybody sing-
Every day create your History,
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty.”
Michael Jackson

Michael  Jackson
“Say Say Say
What you want
But don't play games
With my affection
Take take take
What you need
But don't leave me
With no direction”
Michael Jackson

Jermaine Jackson
“Michael applied himself better than I did at school. His thirst for knowledge was far greater than any of the rest of us. He was that curious kid who asked, 'Why? Why? Why?' and he listened to and logged every detail. I'm sure his head had an in-built recording chip for data, facts, figures, lyrics and dance moves.”
Jermaine Jackson, You are Not Alone: Michael: Through a Brother's Eyes

Katharine Hepburn
“He's worked his entire life and he's never lived a single moment, I mean not a moment, in the real world.”
Katharine Hepburn

Toni Jordan
“And if I was Lisa Marie Presley and I'd told you I was going to marry Michael Jackson because I liked the shape of his nose, or rather, noses, and he's just a sweet boy who loves children, I mean really loves children, and his dramatic change in appearance was undoubtedly a result of a genuine bona fide skin disease, would you have said anything?”
Toni Jordan, Addition

“Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel.”
Michael J. Jackson

“It was Frankie Lymon all over again," Marvin said. "Only this kid had mastered James Brown's moves. Michael was like Stevie. From the very beginning, he worried me.”
David Ritz, Divided Soul: The Life Of Marvin Gaye

Chris Hedges
“Chris Hedges said that Michael Jackson's memorial service was a variety show with a coffin, that MJ transformed himself through surgery and perhaps female hormones from a brown-skinned African American male to a chalk-faced androgynous ghoul with no clear sexual identity.”
Chris Hedges

Michael  Jackson
“The bigger the star, the bigger the target.”
Michael Jackson

Dan Ahearn
“Veeva squirmed up and down the length of me, vibrating like a coin operated motel bed. When she stopped kissing my mouth, I said, "It sounds so great, Veeva. Just you and me with our brand new plastic surgery noses, running for our lives, hating each other’s guts... Both of us getting to look more and more like Michael Jackson every day.”
Dan Ahearn, Shoot the Moon

“But Jackson was experienced enough to know that the scale of the challenge ahead was totally unrealistic, yet the alternative probably meant utter and complete ruination for him. The whole entire enterprise was delusional. Michael surely knew it, but likely hoped that at some point an exit strategy would magically appear. He was a frail, deeply insecure, vulnerable, unfit, 50-year-old with a chronic addiction to a wide variety of prescription medicines, and the whole tour would have seemed just what it was: an impossible mountain for him to climb.”
Matt Richards, 83 Minutes: The Doctor, the Damage and the Shocking Death of Michael Jackson

“We know how you all want us to cancel black people when they do something bad, but you keep making excuses for people you revere. People say, “can’t we just draw the line at rapists and murderers?” But for us history is rife with horrible men and then we’ve learned that we have to sing praises to those horrible men, and we see them on our money and their names on our schools and our bridges. So horrible man is not a disqualifier. Our lives are imbued with them. When they ask us about Michael Jackson (how can you sing those songs?) and R Kelly; it’s complicated. I will get rid of Michael Jackson when you get rid of Andrew Jackson. At least you can dance to Beat It. But our stories are so full of irredeemably horrible people that it’s something we can compartmentalize. Literally, if Bill Cosby was a priest, he wouldn’t be in prison.”
D.L. Hughley, Surrender, White People!: Our Unconditional Terms for Peace

Claire North
“Michael fucking Jackson to you too.”
Claire North, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

Andrew Durbin
“Forgoing outright atrocity, of which there is so much—too much—right now, aren’t the ‘life,’‘body,’ and ‘face’ of Michael Jackson in the running for some of the most abstract events of the last century?”
Andrew Durbin, Mature Themes

Saul Bellow
“I have always had a weakness for footnotes. For me a clever or a wicked footnote has redeemed many a text. And I see that I am now using a long footnote to open a serious subject - shifting in a quick move to Paris, to a penthouse in the Hotel Crillon. Early June. Breakfast time. The host is my good friend Professor Ravelstein, Abe Ravelstein. My wife and I, also staying at the Crillon, have a room below, on the sixth floor. She is still asleep. The entire floor below ours (this is not absolutely relevant but somehow I can't avoid mentioning it) is occupied just now by Michael Jackson and his entourage. He performs nightly in some vast Parisian auditorium. Very soon his French fans will arrive and a crowd of faces will be turned upward, shouting in unison, 'Miekell Jack-sown'. A police barrier holds the fans back. Inside, from the sixth floor, when you look down the marble stairwell you see Michael's bodyguards. One of them is doing the crossword puzzle in the 'Paris Herald'.”
Saul Bellow, Ravelstein

“Whatever I'm doing,
Wherever I am,
I have to stop,
Whenever I hear the music from

“A little bit of Michael Jackson music everyday keeps me dancing ,smiling and inspired.
He's bad, he's off the wall, he's dangerous,he's immortal, but most of all he's invincible.
"His music is intended to heal the world" MJJ”
Charmaine J. Forde

“Meanwhile, I was kind of detached, despite the terrible pain. I was watching all the drama unfold. Later they told me I was in shock, but I remember enjoying the ride to the hospital because I never thought I’d ride in an ambulance with the sirens wailing. It was one of those things I had always wanted to do when I was growing up. When we got there, they told me there were news crews outside, so I asked for my glove. There’s a famous shot of me waving from the stretcher with my glove on.”
Michael Jackson

“SEEING VOICES by Michael Jackson

This song makes me want to dance with a brollie in an open field, in a Julie Andrews kind of way.”
Charmaine J. Forde
