Book: Michael Jackson Thought Madonna Was in Love With (and Jealous of) Him
The Michael Jackson afterlife show is just heating up. Since his death, stories after stories have surfaced - some of them are probably true.
In a new book, The Michael Jackson Tapes: A Tragic Icon Reveals His Soul In Intimate Conversation, which is based on a 2001 interview the late singer had with his friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the stories keep coming. Come to think of it, Michael had no friends. Remember the other "friend" who exposed private, intimate conversations she had with Michael? (PS: It's worth a listen.)
Apparently Michael thought Madonna was in love with him, but he didn't find her sexy. He did believe, however, she was jealous of him.
"I think she was sincerely in love with me and I was not in love with her. I think she likes shock value and she knows how to push buttons on people. She did a lot of crazy things. I knew we had nothing in common. She is not sexy at all. I think being sexy comes from the heart in the way you present yourself."
The books says Madonna was jealous of his loyal, adoring, female fans.
"They admire you and know you are wonderful and great because they are jealous, because they wish they were in your shoes. Madonna is one of them. She is jealous. She is a girl, a woman and I think that's what bothers her. I think women don't scream for other women. Men are too cool to scream for women. I get the fainting and adulation and she doesn't."
If you've seen Michael Jackson perdform, then you'd know what he was talk about. People would literally faint when they saw him.
The book also claims he considered dating pal Elizabeth Taylor.
BTW, we still can't get over Jermaine's book in which threw Michael - and the rest of the family - under the bus.
Sidebar: Mariah dedicated her new album, “Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel”, which Tuesday, to Michael.
