Michael Jackson tapes: Madonna ‘is not a nice person

Michael Jackson was one of the most famous people in the world. Yet for all his global notoriety, the man himself was shrouded in mystery.

Now some of that mystery has been peeled away. Jackson recorded about 30 hours of deeply personal thoughts with his friend and spiritual adviser, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, between August 2000 and April 2001.

The results are the basis of a new book, “The Michael Jackson Tapes: A Tragic Icon Reveals His Soul in Intimate Conversation.” Boteach joined CNN’s Larry King in an interview aired Monday night that painted the pop star as a lonely, injured soul who craved adoration and love but was too damaged to find it.

Boteach’s recordings also revealed Jackson’s relationships with various family members and celebrities — some of which were warm, others tense and others painful and dysfunctional.

    Thanks for posting the comment.
    Can we really know what he thought or what he wanted?
    I doubt. I feel we should try and remember what was the best of MJ – the music. RIP in MJ

    Michael wasn’t as mysterious as people think he was. He told people how he felt through his music & public speaking. Michael never would’ve wanted all of the things he said on those tapes released publicly. Some of it, like his feelings toard Madonna, easily could’ve changed in the 8 yrs. since the tapes were recorded. Michael wanted love; not adoration. Michael had a rotten childhood, but he was not the dysfunctional man Boteach portrays him as.
