Akon shares memories "Michael is a movie goer and he loves movies as well. He’s like, “Yo man, I gotta take you to the theatre, this new technology they got, it’s like 4D, it feels like you’re feel like you’re in the midst of it.” I’m like “Nah, I know 3D…” And he’s like “No, you really gotta check this out.” So he paused for a minute and he’s like, “Okay, let’s do it tomorrow.” And I’m thinking to myself, I don’t know how we gonna expect to go to the movies – this is Michael Jackson! How the hell are we gonna go to the movies?
So next day he calls my room, we’re both staying at the Palm in Las Vegas. He’s like, “Are you ready? I’m ready.” I’m like, “Yeah, let me get dressed.” At the time I thought he was joking, I thought he was probably gonna just rent. I thought we were gonna go to the back, late late night or something. This is broad daylight. So he grabs the kids, they looking normal. Then Mike comes out, he has this disguise on. So I starts laughing, ’cause I didn’t even recognize him. It wasn’t like he even had a fake mustache or a fake wig on, or nothing, he just had a simple hoodie on. He could’ve easily passed to be a Saudi or something, know what I’m saying?
We go to the mall, going on the elevator going down, going to the hotel where they have the IMAX thing. Soon as we get in all these kids start coming running towards us. So I’m like damn, I think they know who he is. And all these kids just start come running up to me asking me for an autograph. So I’m like, should I toss them off before they recognize who he is or should I play it cool? He shakes his head like, you gotta do what you gotta do.
So I’m signing autographs, taking pictures, and I’m looking at these kids faces, and they don’t even know that Mike is standing right next to me! If they only knew this guy was standing right next to me! You know how much havok that would cause?
So we get to the theatre, manager meets us up front, he hands us the tickets. We’re all seated, so as we’re talking I forget that he’s supposed to be in disguise and I keep calling him, “Mike.” I see this girl and she looks over and I think she recognizes him, I really think she does.

"One of the things he always told me was, don't be afraid to be different. In other words, when you have that desire, that drive, people are going to try to pull you away from that, and pull you closer to the pack to be 'normal.' And he was saying, It's O.K. to be that driven; it's O.K. to be obsessed with what you want to do. That's perfectly fine. Don't be afraid to not deviate from that. One of the books that he gave me that helped him communicate with me was "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," which was about that.
Beyond the genius of what he was, he was just a genuinely, genuinely nice person. He got me hooked on movies that I would normally never watch. Fred Astaire movies. All the old classics. I would never, never watch those. I remember my fiancée and I telling him we were getting married, and him just being really excited and actually just offering up the ranch to have our wedding there, because privacy was going to be an issue. We wanted to get married in a church, so that's what we wound up doing. But he made the offer. He was just a genuinely nice person who was exceptionally bright, exceptionally bright, and driven and talented. You mix those things together, man, you have Michael Jackson." - Kobe Bryant #michaeljackson#mj#kingofpop#theking#dance#music#song#shortfilm#musicvideo#black#strangerthings#parisjackson#princejackson#bigijackson#me#justinbieber#beyonce#selenagomez#harrystyles#camilacabello#beatles#arianagrande#art#80s#90s#kyliejenner#makeup
I always say this, but when I made this account I really didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t actually think I’d make friends, or even gain many followers. Of course gaining followers was not/is not what I care about. It was posting pictures of a beautiful human being, who makes my heart happy, makes me feel understood, and safe in how I feel. The first thing I did when I woke up? I’d post on here. I probably posted 7 - 10 times a DAY when I created this account. I just wanted to share my love for this person with everyone, and I still do. Michael has changed my life, changed me as a person. A better person. We have always shared so many values. I’ve never been able to relate to someone so much, and of course we want that. We want someone/something we can relate to. To feel okay when we are not okay. I thought I was weird, and alone in things I’ve been through and feel. It feels amazing to know that I’m not. And who better to relate to? I tried to show that love on other platforms, and got judged for it, and the comments were horrible. So I came here, and was accepted right away. By all of you. I can be pretty bad with starting a conversation at times, but your messages made/make me so happy. I love how much all of you love Michael. I love that you stand by him no matter what, defending him completely, and you never give up. It truly means that much to you. That is beautiful to me. I know that Michael is so proud of all of you. He knows we all miss him, and love him. But he loves all of you more. He always has. I’m so happy to be in this fandom, sharing this love with all of you, and seeing the love you all have for him. This was probably all over the place, but I’m just writing how I feel. Thank you for every single comment, dm, like. All of it. I am grateful. 4K. That’s a huge family. I love you all so much. ❤️
