America’s Top 10 interview

8 Aug, 1987

Jackson is interviewed by Kasem, who asks him about his origins in Gary, Indiana, his obsession with the word “magic”, the film’s that inspire him to create his work. They also ask Jackson about alternative career choices if he was not doing music.

When I see magic, I mean wonderment, that excitement, escapism, another world. There are other people that do that sort of thing like Steven Spielberg, Walt Disney. For the spectator it’s exciting, it’s entertaining, it’s joy, it’s love. I like to create magic, myself, I love magic.
