Wow, it sure seems like the cards were stacked against Michael from the start; this book does a great job of portraying his perfectionist nature and how he never seemed to be happy unless he was performing onstage.
I found it surprising how both his late-life odd behaviors and legal issues are included, and respect that Stine wanted the material to paint a complete picture about the complicated person that Michael was by including both his good and bad aspects. The illustrations here are truly i Wow, it sure seems like the cards were stacked against Michael from the start; this book does a great job of portraying his perfectionist nature and how he never seemed to be happy unless he was performing onstage.

Michael Jackson is such a huge name, but my guess is many people don't know anything about his life. I certainly didn't. I had to hurry and read this book so I could help one of my students with their Wax Museum report.
Michael Jackson's life was all about becoming a star. When he was just a young child, his dad pushed his kids to become the famous "Jackson 5. Luckily, they did have a lot of natural talent. MJ had perfect pitch. His dad was abusive, though, and w Michael Jackson is such a huge name, but my guess is many people don't know anything about his life. His dad was abusive, though, and would often hit the children if they weren't doing what they were supposed to.
They first sang for Motown, but MJ broke away so he could have more control. He wanted to write his own songs and even star in movies. He starred in a movie called The Wiz with Diana Ross. After the movie, MJ fired his dad as his manager and started working with Paul Quincy more on his own. It was at this time that he performed Thriller and the other songs he's famous for. He started working harder. He told MTV that he would only appear on their award shows if they called him "the king of pop.
He donated a lot of his money to charities, like a burn unit and helping kids with cancer. He really loved his children and lived all over the world with them. He overspent and wasn't making any new songs so he got into serious debt. It was when he was trying to make a comeback that he died of an accidental drug overdose.
He also bought the rights to the Beatles songs and was kind of a dick to Paul McCartney and refused to give them more of the profits. Not cool. It was interesting learning a little about this American legend. View all 4 comments. Feb 20, Makayla Jacobs rated it it was amazing. Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana.
