Good Morning America: Untouchable Review
Randall Sullivan, an editor at Rolling Stone, has just published his new book Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson.
The book dives into the life of Michael Jackson, from the absurdities to the normalities. Mostly the absurdities though. Sullivan details the King of Pop and reveals some astounding facts that many seem to have been glossed over in other books and accounts of the pop star’s life. Like Jackson’s hatred of credit cards and seemingly the financial system we all abide by.
Jackson only had one credit card and would often ask people to bring him large sums of money, one time asking for half a million dollars to be brought to his house. He would then hide the cash all around the house. A running joke of the incident was how much money could be brought to the house at one time.
Good Morning America: The Actor, Michael Jackson
Sullivan said Jackson wanted off the stage that he had occupied since his days as a child. He did not want to be a singer and a dancer any longer, going as far back at 1995.
Good Morning America: Michael Jackson True Friends
Sullivan argues that Jackson just wanted some true friends. He wanted to be friends with Princess Diana very badly, although the feeling was not mutual.
But Jackson did obtain one friend, at least in retrospect. Sullivan said after three years of research he developed a deep affection for the pop star.
