TIL Michael Jackson tried to hang out casually at a club and people watch but was surprised when he heard the DJ play remixes of his songs and said “Wow, I didn’t know that they still played my music” in 2008(r/todayilearned)
My fav. chapter in Corey’s biography is when Corey is around 15 and he has nowhere to live, so he calls Michael and gets to hang out at his place. Then Michael says “Let’s go to Disneyland” and Corey goes “Just us? What about security?” and MJ goes “Don’t worry. We’ll sneak out. I’ll wear a disguise.” And so they go and they have a great time at Disneyland. Then, by the arcades, there is a place where you can dance so Corey goes “Let’s join in and dance!” and MJ says “If I dance, everybody will know who I am” and Corey goes “Come on man, you don’t have to dance like Michael Jackson, just dance like regular people” and then MJ gives him a look that is “When I dance – I dance like Michael Jackson” and so they left. ;D
On a serious note. Corey talks a lot about Michael Jackson and how they were hanging out during the 80’s. It seems like a really chill friendship. Corey describes him as the older brother he never had and Michael was at one point on the phone with Coreys father, trying to help him with some career advice since the father was also managing Coreys career and was making a lot of poor choices. A great read if you have time.
