Javon Beard: He’d planned a special gift for Prince: a seven-week-old chocolate Labrador puppy. But the people that Feldman arranged to get the dog from had arrived too early on Christmas Eve. Mr. Jackson didn’t want Prince to see the dog, and there was nobody else to step up, so I said, “I’ll take him for the night.” 

I took the dog home, kept him at my house. Cute dog. Did not shut up. Whined and whimpered all damn night. I’d barely slept a couple hours when my phone started ringing off the hook. It was only six a.m., but somehow Prince had gotten wind of the surprise and wanted the puppy as soon as possible. So, I dragged my ass out of bed, put the puppy in the car, and drove it over. Little guy was whimpering and whining the whole way.

But the second I brought him inside Mr. Jackson’s house? He shut right up. He was suddenly as sweet and lovable as he could be, like he knew he was finally home. Prince went crazy. He loved that dog. Named it Kenya.

Perfect breakdown of the 1988 Grammy performance:

“This is not the Grammys. This is church.”
"He’s like a magical faun with a curl. Very rare."
“This might be the most beautiful performance of our most beautiful song.”
"Mike just Eastside Stomped all over the Grammy stage. He is the chosen one."
"If you aren’t moved by this, you don’t have a soul."
“Few people have ever “left it on the field,” like Michael Jackson at the 1988 Grammys. No one’s ever done anything like this.”
"I just don’t get it. I don’t know how you remain glued to your seat as new religions are being formed onstage."
"Michael is shouting ad-libs at the audience, which is important, because if there’s one thing this performance is, it’s a sermon. He’s just up on that stage, converting lost souls.”
"In our eighth minute, we finally reach the filthiest breakdown in a live performance that I’ve ever heard. It’s just disgusting how good this is. And that’s only aided by the fact that Michael is writhing on the floor."
"Respect this mythical creature and his hops."
"I think Michael has blacked out. I don’t think he has any idea where he is."
"And now he’s deep-voice scatting and screaming. Yep, definitely blacked out. One hundred percent thinks he’s in Gary. So pleased with him."
"Look how frizzy his little curl mullet is. That’s what hard work looks like."


I love this review, so true and fun

“I respect the secrets and magic of nature. That’s why it makes me so angry when I see these things that are happening, that every second, I hear, the size of a football field is torn down in the Amazon. I mean, that kind of stuff really bothers me. That’s why I write these kinds of songs, you know. It gives some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people. I love the planet, I love the trees. I have this thing for trees - the colors and changing of leaves. I love it. I respect those kind of things.

I really think that nature is trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet. Because the planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now, it would be a point of no return. This is our last chance to fix the problem that we have. It’s like a runaway train. When the time comes, then this is it. People are always saying: ‘They’ll take care of it - The government’ll… - Don’t worry, they’ll -’ ‘They’ who? It starts with us. It’s us. Or else it’ll never be done… We have four years to get it right. After that it would be irreversible. Let’s take care of the planet.”
