  3. Michael Jackson was never really a part of my childhood so I never understood the fascination with him, but I've always felt sorry for so much of stuff that was written about him in the media! Thanks for hosting:) Enjoy your weekend!

  7. There's so much that was written and speculated about MJ that it's often hard to know what was true. Hopefully this book helps to clarify some of that. There was a lot of sadness to his life, which really is too bad.
