Product Overview

So much has how been said and written about the life and career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. This book is the fruit of over 30 years of research and hundreds of exclusive interviews with a remarkable level of access to the very closest circles of the Jackson family - including Michael himself. Cutting through tabloid rumours, J. Randy Taraborrelli traces the real story behind Michael Jackson, from his drilling as a child star through the blooming of his talent to his ever-changing personal appearance and bizarre publicity stunts. This major biography includes the behind-the-scenes story to many of the landmarks in Jackson's life: his legal and commercial battles, his marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe, his passions and addictions, his children. Objective and revealing, it carries the hallmarks of all of Taraborrelli's best-sellers: impeccable research, brilliant storytelling and definitive documentation.

"Taraborrelli plays Virgil on the Gloved One's Dantean descent, armed with an enthusiasm for all things Jackson but ill-served by clunky prose."
From the Publisher
Annotation Celebrity journalist and biographer (he's published books about Motown, Diana Ross, and Madonna, to name a few), J. Randy Taraborrelli first met Michael Jackson in 1970, when the pop-music legend was not yet a teenager and the author was only a 13-year-old fan. As Taraborrelli describes it, at that time Michael was confident, optimistic about the future, and happy. Everyone knows that would not last. Privileged with personal interviews and intimate conversations throughout the star's turbulent life--through MJ's ground-breaking successes as an entertainer, through his tabloid-ready marriages, his questionable relationships, his legal battles, and his unique parenting strategies--Taraborrelli was on the front lines. This is as much of an insider's account as readers can expect to find about a star who grew more and more reclusive with every passing year. This edition of Taraborrelli's book--which was first published in 1992 and revised in 2005--was updated at the time of Jackson's death.
