Brett Ratner Michael Jackson

Shooter Series interview 1

1 Feb, 2003

Jackson is interviewed by his friend Ratner. They talk about how Jackson would be inspired by the pioneer dancers such as Jackie Wilson and James Brown at the Apollo, his love of the sixties era. He also leaves a very profound message for all emerging artists to believe in theirselves as they pursue their dreams.

James Brown and Jackie Wilson made me cry. I never seen nothing like that. That kind of fever feeling, it was like on another higher spiritual plain. They were like in a trance and they had the audience in the palm of their hand. I just love how they could control them like that.
