Michael Jackson

VH1 Interview

4 Apr, 1993

Jackson talks about his obsession with perfection when it comes to creating music, the premiere of Ghosts and the creation of A Stranger in Moscow, the disgust he feels with tabloid media. He also talks about the real Billie Jean and what inspired the song when he was younger while on tour with his brothers.

Some of the songs I remember getting upset with the songwriters because I wanted to sing it one way and they wanted me to sing it another way and I would call Berry Gordy who is the chairman and owner of the company. He would say “Look let Michael do what he wants, I’m sure he’s right.” So that happened several times.
