The song Billie Jean is linked to Michael’s relationship with Theresa Gonsalves who had been a big fan of him for years. She was such a big fan that she started writing him letters, hundreds of letters in which she described her everyday life. At school, she would write on the chalkboard "I love Michael Jackson". Born in Boston on November 1958, she became ...

This isn't a question with an easy or unambiguous answer. On the one hand, we have the following: 1) Jackson seemingly wasn't a fan of his own personal appearance. Over the course of his adult life, his appearance steadily grew more Caucasian, presumably because of the deliberate use of plastic surgery and other techniques. 2) Jackson seemingly wasn't ...

Partial answer. I assume the rap portion you're referring to is part: Please, no, keep back, I can't take it / You're drivin' me wild / I might not make it / You got me lookin' like buckwheat, oh / Hair pulled every which way but me / Far from Medusa, but your looks are deadly / You're walkin' soft, still I hear the medley / Uh, shiver my ...

The biggest similarity I note is that Beyoncé, like Michael before her (and James Brown before him) is a consummate professional, who views entertainment as a job, and works at it tirelessly. Beyoncé, like Michael, is a perfectionist, and a bit of a control freak, who expects nothing but excellence from her many collaborators. There's also ...

Yes, very much so. I don't think that the previous answer is totally correct. The statement posted is valid enough, but it only extends to Jackson's own royalties due to him as a songwriter. It does not cover Lionel Richie's rights as co-writer, nor the record company' publishing rights. It's not clear whether this legal directive was binding on the 2010 ...

As the line preceding the sound is They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side I'd imagine it's intended to be the sound of a demon or multiple demons.
