"With all due to respect to Terrence Malick - he is one of my favorite directors - he is quiet and almost shy. As is Michael. So [the day in 1998 they met at the Fox studio] I stood with the two of them trying to have them make conversation with each other, the fabulous director and the global super star. Both were slightly awkward and I was kind of `Hey, how about the Dodgers!’ trying to get a conversation going.” The most memorable part of that afternoon [when Lurham met Jackson and his youngest son, Prince, at the Beverly Hills Hotel] was, at one point, Prince sneezed. And Michael turned to Prince and said to him very beautifully and paternally `We cover our noses when we sneeze.’ And you know, in any other meeting it would be something you forget, but when it’s Michael Jackson and the 2-and-a-half or 3-year-old Prince and Baz Luhrmann, I just say I was so glad to be a fly on the wall."-Robert Kraft #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson

“Michael was not a musician but he had the ears of a musician, there was nothing that he didn’t hear,” recalls Kevin Dorsey, a backing singer for Jackson for over 20 years. “Always in the show, if someone made a mistake, he’d turn around and smile and point at them. He could hear through everything.” He recalls his first rehearsals with Jackson, for the Bad tour in 1988. “We were two hours and twenty minutes into the show, and there was a lighting error, and Michael said ‘all right, let’s go to the top.’ I thought, ‘OK , go to the top of the song, get it over with and take a break’. I thought I had six minutes left. And the other guys looked at me, they laughed, and said, ‘wait and watch.’ He didn’t mean the top of the song, he meant the top of the show. I had to do another two hours and 26 minutes. I said right there, this is going to be quite a run.” (Michael Jackson remembered by his band) #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson

"I love and adore my children. They mean everything to me. When they’re in public, though, I conceal their faces, 'cause I want my children protected. At home, they have a normal life, they play with other kids and they have a good time, they’re laughing a lot. They run around, they even go to school. It’s a normal life for them. But in public, I must protect them. I love my children very much, and I’m proud to be their dad."-MJ #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson
"Lisa, kept calling me. Constantly calling me. And she wanted to get together with Michael more." Lisa met with Brett a few times to talk about it, remarking that she had a few things in common with the Jacksons and maybe she should pursue a friendship with Michael. "I always talked about him as a passionate man who was extremely loving…and that attracted Lisa, that loving part, and loving children." (...) "By mid 1993, Lisa Marie was deeply in love with Michael – and she made sure they got together regularly. I realize now that she was pursuing Michael – and that she was determined to make him her husband." (...) "I think it was the passion of a woman who fell in love. And Michael wasn’t even interested at all. And he is a gentleman; he wouldn’t have wanted to pull her away from her marriage to Danny. And she pursued him." - Brett Strong || "One of the things that Michael told me was, “Man, I didn’t know that Lisa was going to divorce her husband for me.” – Teddy Riley #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson
Michael: Lisa was great with going to the hospitals with me, and she was so sweet about that. They would tie the babies to the bed of chain children down. We’d go unchain…we’d go free all these babies. I hated that and she discovered a lot of that injustice with me. Countries like Romania and Prague, Czech and all that, Russia. Lisa Marie was good about at least visiting. So she had no problem going and doing some of the compassionate things of giving these children love and making them feel special. She had no problem doing that but her and I had several big arguments because she’s very territorial with her children. Her children were [her major concern]….and I said “No, all children are our concern,” and she never liked that coming from me. She was very angry about that. Plus she a had fight with me one time when two little boys in London killed this other kid and I was going to visit them cause the Queen gave them adult sentencing of life. These were like 11 and 10 year old boys and I was going to the prison and visiting them. She said, “You idiot. You’re just rewarding them for what they did.” I said, “How dare you say that.” I bet if you trace their lives you can find they didn’t have parents around, they didn’t have any love, nobody there to hold them look in their eyes and say “I love you,.” They deserve that even if they are going to get life, I just want to say I love you and hold them. “She said, “Well you’re wrong.” I said “No, you’re wrong.” The information came out they came from broken families, were never watched as little kids, attended to. Their pacifier was those Chucky movies with the stabbings and the killings. And that’s how they became conditioned to that.

Ed Bradley: But tell me why you developed Neverland. -Michael Jackson: Because I wanted to have a place that I could create everything that I that I never had as a child. So, you see rides. You see animals. There's a movie theater. I was always on tour, traveling. You know? And — I never got a chance to do those things. So, I compensated for the loss by — I have a good — I mean, I can't go into a park. I can't go to Disneyland, as myself. I can't go out and walk down the street. There's crowds, and bumper to bumper cars. And so, I create my world behind my gates. Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And — and we have bus loads of kids, who don't get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it. They enjoy it in a pure, loving, fun way. It's people with the dirty mind that think like that. I don't think that way. That's not me. #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson
"Lisa celebrated her twenty-fifth birthday with a huge party, planned by Priscilla, at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Prince was among the guests, along with a sprinkling of celebrity Scientologists such as Kirstie Alley, Nicole Kidman, and Juliette Lewis. Lisa invited Michael Jackson as her special guest, “and he would have loved to have gone,” said Brett, “but he had other things.” Brett suggested to Michael that he should at least send Lisa a birthday gift, “so he told me, ‘Well you go get it!’ ” Brett selected, as Michael’s gift to Lisa, an art book on Michelangelo and a silver picture frame in which he placed a photograph of Michael and Lisa’s original meeting in his living room. Brett, attempting to be gallant on Michael’s behalf, wrote sweet birthday inscriptions in the art book and on the birthday card, making them appear to be from Michael. “I was just trying to be a good friend for him,” said Brett. “I went to the party with my son Jason, and when I got there, Lisa was like, ‘Oh! Where’s Michael? I hope it’s all right that Prince is here.’ I said, ‘Michael just couldn’t make it, but here is a gift from him.’ And I didn’t say anything [else].” Lisa, he recalled, “latched onto the gifts excitedly and immediately opened them to check them out.” He later figured out, said Brett, that he had inadvertently played matchmaker to Michael and Lisa by buying the birthday gifts, for Lisa, seeing the card and the inscription in the art book, both of which she believed to have been written by Michael, misinterpreted Brett’s affectionate words as an indication that Michael Jackson had feelings for her. “I wasn’t trying to bring two people together to get married." #MichaelJackson #MichaelJosephJackson #MichaelJoeJackson #Mike #MJJ #Applehead #GreatestEntertainerOfAllTimes #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfPopRockAndSoul #GodOfMusic #KingOfMusic #GodOfPop #KingOfPop #GodOfDance #KingOfDance #GodOfStyle #KingOfStyle #KOP #King #TheKing #Best #TheBest #KingOfEntertainment #KingOfOurHearts #KingOfEverything #GreatestManOnEarth #Follow => @MichaelJackson
