    Poor MJ didn’t have any real friends. He should have stopped the surgery RIGHT THERE. Tom was so fine back then–who knew?!

    Very good interview, Tom. It seems like he was comfortable, though still guarded, with you. He had trouble on that friend question you asked. It’s interesting that he said he went to sleep listening to classical music. I wonder when that changed for him and why he felt he needed drugs to sleep?

    FIRST WOW TOM nice look in the’80’s and HAIR! But the other thing that struck me is how lonely and isolated Michael seemed…he seemed more like someone who should have been pitied and not evied or despised.

  4. I remember when I was 7 years old, I wanted to marry him soooooo badly! I, and my sisters, put together a mock wedding in the backyard under the lemon tree….lol
    By the way, Tom, you are so handsome in that interview!!!! Just sayin 🙂

    All Michael’s Moments are my Favourite…except for when i woke up on Thursday 26th June in Sydney Australia and heard that Michael had died…so bothers me still to this DAY….

  6. Michael was such a handsome guy before his transformation IDK why he put that crap in his hair & reshaped his nose. Had he sang gospel maybe he would have lived longer..just saying..why waste all that talent on secular music..glorifying yourself..for year & years & years. His voice was angelic that’s 4 sure.

      There is absolutely no correlation between singing gospel exclusively and singing secular music exclusively. It’s silly to even consider the idea. It’s even sillier to suggest MJ “wasted” his talent on secular music. Actually, his music brought more people together–and brought more people joy and bliss and contentment–than organized religion could ever hope to do.

        WRONG. MJ loved black women. He really had a love for Diana Ross and you can tell he really wanted her. He dated Stephanie Mills for a while. MJ liked other black women but they were not famous but he was not going to get some hoodrat acting chicks. Anyway. MJ looked good and had big heart and too many people took advantage of it.

      Terrific throw-back, I do appreciate your time and talents Tom. When I was younger at slumber parties we would play MJ’s “Off The Wall” (vinyl record album). I then wanted him to be my boyfriend. I will always love MJ. I 🙏🏾 pray his fam, friends, and fans be a blessing & may God be with y’all until we meet again….
