He lost the ability to be a kid before his 12th birthday. He really was never able to go anywhere without the bodyguard & without the limousine. As a kid, he is not ever to be able to just go out to the park, look up at the sky, & not be able to go to the movies. He has paid a tremendous price for being a famous person. This is the story of a king of pop ‘The great Michael Jackson’.
He born in a working-class family
On 29th August 1958, Michael Joseph Jackson was born in the working-class American-African family living in the house on Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana a part of the Chicago metropolitan area. He was the 8th of ten children in Jackson family. His mother name is Katherine Esther Jackson & father Joseph Walter Jackson was a former boxer and U.S. steel plant worker. Joseph performed on guitar with local rhythm and blues band & the flacon for additional income to support a family.
Michael Jackson joined the band formed by his father in 1964 when he was 6 years old. In 1965 he began sharing lead vocals in the band. Later the group name was changed to ‘Jackson 5’. A band made up his brother and sisters. He was youngest in the group. The Jackson 5 performs at strip club & seedy bar in the earliest days of their career.

A 45-year-old midget
Michael told in an interview that ‘On stage for me was home. I was most comfortable & still on stage. But once I got off on stage I was like very sad. I always used to cry from loneliness. At age of 8-9 years old, there is a lot of wonderment in being famous. You traveled the world, see things. Meet peoples & go places its great but then there is the other side. I would do my schooling which was three hours with the tutor. Then right after that, I go to the recording studio & record for hours and hours till it’s time to go to sleep. I see all the children’s playing & making noise. It makes me sad’.
Michael Jackson was so mature performer in his early day’s people called Michael a 45-year-old midget.
He feels like an animal in the cage
His mother said an interview ‘Michael was quite now’. When he was younger that day he wasn’t that quite. I don’t know, I think the stage might be done that to him. Wherever he goes everybody coming up to see Michael Jackson & look at to him, anybody says he ‘feels like an animal in the cage’.
Michael said ‘I get embarrassed easily. Every day people around me & I fell strange. I most comfortable on the stage’.
My father didn’t allow us to call him daddy
In an interview, Michael told, once my mother caught me, while I was making my bed & I was singing. She said to my father Michael can sing & he didn’t want to hear of it. My mother forced him to listen to me & once he listens to me that’s the moment I was the lead singer.
He uses me as an example he says do as like Michael. In practice, if you miss the steps he holding the belt in his hand, he tears you up if you missed. When we are practicing we are really nervous because he sat in the chair and he had a belt in his hand and if you didn’t do the right he would tear you up. He beat me too much. He loses his temper I remember my mother is screaming Joe you going to kill him stop. He sometimes could catch me my hairs, it was really bad, and it really hurts me.
His presence, just see on him sometimes I get faint and my bodyguard would have to hold me up. When he was beating me I hate him, strong Hate. He didn’t allow us to call him daddy. And I want to call him daddy so badly. He said I am not daddy I am just Joseph to you.
My father teases me a lot about my appearance. He teases me about how I look. I am totally forgiven him for all this did. I don’t love my children call me Michael. I’d say I’m just daddy.
