Michael Jackson Quotes
Quotes both by Michael Jackson himself or by others about Michael Jackson.
This Christmas I came back from [touring in]
Japan and Elizabeth had decorated the whole house. It
was wonderful. I'd never celebrated birthdays or Christmases
before. Not one. It was always, Work! That's why I believe in Neverland.
You know that Michael Jackson video we did ["Whatzupwitu"]?
I'm sitting there watching it with Bria [his daughter],
and she goes "Fass fowad" [fast forward]
to Michael! Fass fowad to Michael!"
It's amazing to know that 5 years ago I was writing
songs in a basement in the ghetto and now I'm writing
for Michael Jackson. I'd be a fool not to say it's a
dream come true.
He cares about animals and nature, and he believes that
with a positive attitude, we can have whatever we want.
He would like to produce and direct, and I believe he
will have those opportunities. Whatever else he does,
I hope he never stops making his beautiful music.
I wouldn't say I was sexy! But I guess that's fine if
that's what they say. I like that in concert. That's
is a true artist in every facet of its nature - extremely
aesthetic and very, very romantic. This is who he truly
is despite degrading comments made in the past by certain
larva. Michael, as well as myself, have been severely
underestimated and misunderstood as human beings. I
can't wait for the day when all the snakes who have
tried to take him out get to eat their own lunch and
crawl back in the holes from which they came. We know
who they are and their bluff is about to be called.
I am committed to my art. I believe that all art has
as its ultimate goal the union between the material
and the spiritual, the human and the divine. I believe
that to be the reason for the very existence of art.
of loving our children more, we install metal detectors
in our schools.
children of my own, I know what it means to balance
the demands of family and career - and let's not even
talk about finding a date for myself. Rabbi Shmuley
keeps telling me he'll find me the perfect woman. My
response is, 'As long as she's not a journalist'.
is instinctual and emotional, like a child's. If any
artist loses that childlike innocence, you lose a lot
of creative juice. So Michael creates around himself
a world that protects that creativity.
the walls of my room are pictures of Peter Pan. I've
read everything that Barrie wrote. I totally identify
with Peter Pan, the lost boy from Never Neverland.
But if you don't have that memory
of being loved, you are condemned to search the world
for something to fill you up. But no matter how much
money you make or how famous you become, you will still
feel empty. What you are really searching for is unconditional
love, unqualified acceptance. And that was the one thing
that was denied to you at birth.
a collector of cartoons. All the Disney stuff, Bugs
Bunny, the old MGM ones. It's real escapism, it's like
everything's alright. It's like the world is happening
now in a far away city. Everything's fine.
not gonna marry somebody for any reason other than the
fact that I've fallen in love with them. Period! Period!
And they can eat it, if they wanna think any differently!!
I am guilty of anything it is of believing what God
said about children: 'Suffer little children to come
unto me and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom
of Heaven.' In no way do I think that I am God, but
I try to be God-like in my heart.
is the single most awarded entertainer the world has
ever known. As you listen to and enjoy his music, I'm
sure you'll agree that we, his fans, are the ones who
are the most rewarded.
Before he won 12 Grammy awards, before he dazzled billions
of fans around the world with his amazing talent as
a performer, before he impacted on millions of lives
with his ongoing humanitarian efforts, before all of
that, he was one other thing, he was my brother.
I love Switzerland. It's so clean and cool. We don't
get much snow where I live so I get real excited in
Lausanne and Geneva. I'd like to buy a house there when
I'm older and settle down. It's all so cute that it
looks like a movie set.
the greatest artist that ever walked the face of the
earth. You think so? [asked by 'The Face' magazine] Know So. Put it like this: no artist has had more men
and women faint over them, ever. Am I right?
World' and 'Stranger In Moscow' from the 'HIStory'
record are, like, the makeup of Michael. I think he's
taken on the responsibility to make changes in the world.
He's the only real superhero. Think about it.
Lisa's sweet. I like her very much, and we are friends.
And who knows what tomorrow brings? I have no idea how
she feels today. I'll just say that. She comes to my
house and sees the children, and we talk on the phone,
that sort of thing.
a fucking brilliant entertainer, a complete natural.
He's the only guy I've ever met that's real - for that
kind of music. I grew up listening to the Jackson 5.
I used to love 'Dancing Machine'.
do disguises for different reasons. I like to study
people - be like the fly on the wall. Even if it's two
old ladies sitting on a bench or some kids on a swing.
Because I don't know what it's like to fit in an everyday
magic, the wonder, the mystery, and the innocence of
a child's heart, are the seeds of creativity that will
heal the world. I really believe that!
happen to be colorblind. I don't hire color, I hire
competence! ... Racism is not my motto. One day, I strongly
expect every color to love as one family.
knows what the people are saying. That will make all
this greater. He wants to shock people. When his music
comes out, it will shut everyone down. You think Michael
has forgotten how to sing? How to dance? It hasn't been THAT long!
Michael comes back with the right record it will blaze
am sorry cannot be here in person, as I am currently
in Japan for my HIStory World Tour and am hosting
a holiday party for the employees of STAR magazine tonight.
Thank you very much for this award, and I wish all of
you a very happy holiday season. I love you.
love the fans and they are the reason for my professional
existence. When I'm out there doing a show and I see
the fans dancing and singing, that's what I love the
most. It's just the greatest feeling in the world.
want to do something to help those who lost their parents,
who lost their mothers and their fathers. Those are
our people. Those are our children. Those are our parents.
must wave our banners even higher and belt out our voices
even stronger and be unified as people. We're going
to make it through this!
when you're treated unfairly it makes you stronger and
more determined. I admire that kind of strength. People
who have it take a stand and put their blood and soul
into what they believe.
one man who has taken the whole world on an electrifying,
joyous, thrilling journey. 30 years at the top proves
you truly are invincible.
Astaire told me things I will never forget. Gene Kelly
also said he liked my dancing. It was a fantastic experience
because I felt I had been inducted into an informal
fraternity of dancers, and I felt so honored because
these were the people I most admired in the world.

and in our prayers.

that, write the lyrics, or cause the kind of excitement
that he does.
So you have
to deal with this jealousy. They think they're hurting
you. Nothing could hurt me. The bigger the star, the
larger the target. At least they're talking. When they
stop talking, you have to worry.

at all sure that he could make it on his own. And me

wasn't ever really interested in money. I'd give him
his share of the night's earnings and the next day he'd
buy ice cream or candy for all the kids in the neighbourhood.
know how he feels right now. I had the same experience
with Sony Music in the past. Shakira's, Britney's are
now top priority for labels. That's not good, but what
can you do about it?
don't know what I could do besides sing but I'm not
worried because I figure I've got the rest of my life

many people Michael Jackson seems an elusive personality,
but to those who work with him, he is not. This talented
artist is a sensitive man, warm, funny and full of insight.

head in an all out war.
I started breaking sales records, I broke Elvis Presley's
record, I broke the Beatles' record - once I started
doing that, overnight they called me a freak, a homosexual,
a child molester... They said I bleached my skin. They
did everything they could to turn the public against
me. It's a conspiracy.
So I'm leaving Sony, a free agent,
owning half of Sony. I own half of Sony's Publishing.
I'm leaving them, and they're very angry at me, because
I just did good business, you know.

stand here and say he's a really nice guy!!!
I feel more betrayed than perhaps ever before, that
someone who had got to know my children, my staff and
me, whom I let into my heart and told the truth, could
then sacrifice the trust I placed in him and produce
this terrible and unfair program.
to be clear, is it fair to say that in private you were
doing all the things that married people do: kissing,
going to bed together, having sex? "Yeah. That
was part of it, for a while. And then it became the
Def Con 2. It just got really ugly at the end."
Did you and
Michael discuss having kids? Yes. I got out of that
one. 'I just don't think if is a good idea right
now'. But I knew that's what he wanted. And I knew
Debbie Rowe was offering to do it for him while we were
married, according to him. She was a nurse who had a
crush on him and offered to have his babies.

Is The DA smiling? It's not funny. This is someone's

He's far more than that.

I grew up with him and I've spent a lot of time at Neverland
and nothing has ever happened with me in any way. You
have to look at both sides. I do think it is very convenient
that his album came out and all this stuff is happening.
I definitely do think that's very convenient. It really
hurts me to see that his whole life is ruined.
we first went to Switzerland, I almost started crying.
I really did. What touched you about that trip to
bring about that emotional response? The beauty.
It's like, oh, God, it's crying out in the sky. It's
an incredible country and it inspires me to see these
things - the mountains. The pictures don't do justice
hope this puts to rest, I hope this finally puts to
