Lionel Richie: Michael Jackson was silly

Beitragvon Remember MJ » 19. Mär 2012, 14:31

Lionel Richie thinks Michael Jackson was the "silliest guy" he's ever met.

The 62-year-old singer will always remember the late singer - who died from acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 in June 2009 - as someone who was "funny and silly" because he often used to make the 'Dancing on the Ceiling' hitmaker laugh at "inappropriate times".

He said: "Michael Jackson was the silliest guy I ever met. He liked to trigger attacks of laughter at inappropriate times.

"I remember watching a dignitary giving a speech, and he looked over and started giggling ... that just set me off. That to me was who he really was.

"What we say later was a product of failure of the rest of his life. The guy was just funny and silly."

As well as finding Michael comical, Lionel was surprised to discover shopkeepers in Iraq welcomed American troops to their country by playing his 1983 hit single 'All Night Long' when the war started.

He added to The Observer Magazine: "I'm adored in the Arab world these days. The Sunnis and the Shi'ites can't agree on anything, but they're all getting married and partying to my songs.

"When the war in Iraq broke out, shopkeepers in Baghdad wanted to let the Americans know they were welcoming them in, so they played 'All Night Long' and the Iraqi battle song was 'Dancing on the Ceiling'. Go figure."

Lionel Richie says he and MJ agreed not going down the troubled road

In an interview with Access Hollywood Lional Richie talked about Michael. Lionel said Whitney’s death brought back memories of another of his friends.

“I watched it happen with my dear friend, Michael, and Michael and I had talked about this forever in our career – ‘This will never that happen to us…’” Lionel told Shaun Robinson. Richie told Shaun that he and Michael actually spoke about not going down the troubled road when they were breaking out as big solo stars in the 1980s.

“We saw so many other artists go through it, and we just made a promise to ourselves back in the early ‘80s, we would never let that happen to us, and then it just takes one little thing — in his case — it was just the burning of the scalp, just a little bit during the Pepsi commercial that changed what we now know was the big slippery slope,” Lionel said.

Lionel Richie im Vorprogramm der Jackson 5 - Erinnerungen

Lionel Richie berichtete während der „Late Show With David Letterman“ von seinen Anfängen mit der Band „The Commodores“. Sein Vater habe ihn erst bei seinen musikalischen Plänen unterstütz, als sie mit den Jackson 5 durch das Land touren konnten und so nach und nach mehr Aufmerksamkeit erhielten. Lionel Richie erinnert sich an eine lustige Zeit, während der sie mit den Jackson 5 tourten. Sie machten Kissenschlachten und spielten Basketball. Die Jackson 5 hätten jeweils ihre jüngsten Mitglieder – Michael und Marlon – vorne aufgestellt, da sie wussten, dass Richie und seine Jungs dann nicht so hart eisnteigen würden. Hier (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/2 ... 84453.html) ein Videozusammenschnitt auf huffingtonpost.com (Richie zeigt ein Foto mit den J5).
