Michael Jackson is inarguably a legend who had outrageous and bizarre aspects to his life. However, there is more things about him than you could ever think possible, and if you have the curiosity, keep reading. You wouldn’t want other Jackson fans to have more knowledge than you, would you?
Though most people’s favorite superhero was someone like Superman or Spiderman, Michael Jackson’s was Morph from the X-Men. Morph is the friend of the more popular Wolverine. He’s a the mutant with the power to “morph” his appearance and can appear like any object or individual of his choosing.
Also, with so many newer Disney movie characters to be fans of, Jackson’s favorite was always Pinocchio. Some may speculate that his love for this character who’s dream was becoming a real boy, might be due to the childhood he lost while being an international sensation.
He often talked about reclaiming his childhood in adulthood, which can be seen in his amusement park style house called Neverland. Neverland of course being the land of Peter Pan where little boys never had to grow up.
Jackson was known for popularizing the robot, the moonwalk dance steps, and some Hollywood step and repeat breakdance moves. You may even remember him as the scarecrow in the move “The Wiz” (an adaptation of the Wizard of Oz with Diana Ross), but do you know what he did for his first public performance? He was 5 years old and he performed “Climb Every Mountain” from the Sound of Music. This was even before his Jackson Five days.
Michael Jackson is a known animal lover, and of course, some of his animals are more famous than others. Many people know about his pet chimp named Bubbles, who was his constant companion during the latter part of the 80′s. They actually shared a two bedroom suite through his world tour. Some of his less famous pets are pair of llamas whom he named Lola and Louis, and he a ram named Mr. Tibbs.
Jackson’s life has been full of ups and downs, both successes and pitfalls, wins and loses. He was charged and acquitted of child molestation, and yet still had fans all over the world who hailed him as the “King of Pop”. Despite all of the sensationalism, he was a pioneer in the music and entertainment industry, and that is a fact that even his detractors cannot ignore.
