With the recent passing of Jackson Five family patriarch Joe Jackson, a 1987 interview with Michael Jackson has resurfaced. In it, Michael attempts to answer questions about his odd personal life but is interrupted by his overbearing manager Frank DiLeo.
Nonetheless, the weirdness of then 29-year-old Michael’s disguises, his fascination with children, and other oddities were revealed. Enjoy the quirk.
Not long after Michael Jackson’s 2009 death, Joe Jackson famously noted that the superstar’s son Blanket “can really dance!” – a signal that Joe was ready to start pimping his grandkids. If anything, Ol’ Joe was consistent.
