Jackson between Hitler and Madonna
Michael Jackson admired Adolf Hitler and describes it as “a brilliant speaker” with some “bad things in his life.”
The singer, who died of heart failure in June aged 50, was also convinced that he could have cured the Nazi leader’s evil, had he been alive to speak to him.
He said that the dictator – responsible for the murder of 6 million Jews – needed “help” and “therapy”.
Jackson made the claims during interviews with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, with whom he became close friends. The conversations were recorded with Jackson’s approval and have been published in a new book – The Michael Jackson Tapes – which goes on sale in the US and online on Friday.
Jackson also states that “Madonna was madly in love” with him.
However, Michael himself explained in the recorded statements that he never felt attracted to Madonna because he considered her “absolutely not sexy.”
When Boteach asked whether there was a lot of jealousy in Jackson’s profession, he answered, “Absolutely. And M is one of them. Madonna.”
