'Inside The Mind: Michael Jackson' Documentary On Netflix. 14-10-'21

On November 1st, Netflix will release a 2 part documentary 'Inside The Mind'. The first part is on Freddie Mercury and the second on Michael Jackson.

In this series renowned psychiatrist, Dr Bob Johnson, will explore the incredibly complex and unusual lives of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson. He’ll reveal the forces and experiences that shaped their unique personalities – from childhood traumas and family life to relationships and their music careers, this will be a complete picture of the private men behind the public masks.

Inside The Mind: Michael Jackson' DocumentaryNetflix is at it again with new documentary “Inside the Mind: Michael Jackson.

Black or white? Man or Child? Extrovert or Introvert? Gay or straight? Michael Jackson is a man who leaves so many questions unanswered; his baffling choice of decisions from relationships, marriages, children, spending and drug dependency. So who was this man, and why did he operate in such strange ways with such bizarre consequences? His story is one of the great riddles of popular culture.

In this programme psychiatrist Dr Bob Johnson, will unpick a childhood of abuse, being one of many children, incredible early superstardom, untold riches, accusation and exile, to stitch together the man behind the mask of plastic surgery, misinformation and mystery. What led this man to behave the way he did with children and did he realise how that would lead to his own self-destruction? Did his childhood (and adulthood) as a global star where boundaries never existed, make him believe he was untouchable, or delude him that his own moral compass was in fact right? How did his experiences of childhood shape his own disturbed reality? We go inside the complex and controversial mind of Michael Jackson.

Despite having interviews with some of Michael Jackson collaborators and friends, it seems that this documentary is also based on pure speculations from director Zoran Trajkovic.

Dangerous Tour (Tenerife) (26-09-1993)Today In History: A Sad King Who Made History In Tenerife. 26-09-'93

Michael Jackson presented his Dangerous World Tour at the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Canary Islands at 10pm sharp on September 26th, 1993 where around 44,000 people witnessed what is still known today as the biggest event. musical of all times in the history of the Spanish archipelago.

But unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold: under the Chandler family's false harassment charges, the 'King of Pop' no longer looked — understandably — the same Michael Jackson from the first leg of the tour.

Some of his most famous performances were affected: a 'Jam' in which he "walks" more than dances (which is quite common in shows from '93); 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' and even 'Human Nature' and almost breathlessly performed.

Obviously, we notice these differences now, in the Internet age and with today's awareness; but, at the time, the whole spectacle was the most emotional for the people of Santa Cruz, as the photographer, Nacho Gonzalez, testified:

"As soon as he got off the plane, wearing the mask, he gave me the impression that he was physically weak. But when I saw him on that stage, I was mesmerized by his dance moves and the set design of the show, full of impressive special effects. There he showed how great he is as an artist."

Despite the infamous accusations, the blackmail of unscrupulous characters and the malice that would always leave a shadow on his person, Michael Jackson never stopped in his mission to surprise the world.

Before The Cursed Child, Michael Wanted To Stage A Harry Potter Musical. 06-10-'21

Harry Potter And The Cursed ChildThe Harry Potter franchise has branched into many forms of media, and one pop icon even wanted to turn it into a musical: Michael Jackson.

Ever since the first installment hit shelves back in 1997, the Harry Potter franchise has been a staple of pop culture. The book series, which follows the titular character as he learns magic at a boarding school for witches and wizards, has spawned many adaptations, spin-offs and theme park attractions. However, there are still a few mediums that the series has yet to tackle. One such medium is the stage musical. While there have been multiple fan-made musicals in the past based on the character, there has yet to be an official music-based play within the growing catalog of Harry Potter media.

As it turns out, there was one celebrity that did have his eye on turning the book series into a musical. During a 2010 interview with Oprah, J.K. Rowling revealed an interesting piece of trivia. After being asked if she was ever reluctant to "increase the empire," the author mentioned that she was once approached by Michael Jackson, who presented her with a rather unusual pitch.

He wanted to develop a musical based on the adventures of Harry Potter. However, she ultimately turned the pitch down, citing her carefulness about saying yes to things, and how she agreed to certain projects, such as 'The Wizarding World of Harry Potter' at Universal Studios, because she knew they would turn out "incredible."

While there are no other details about this hypothetical stage play beyond this interview, it does leave fans to wonder what a musical based around Harry Potter would have been like, especially with Michael Jackson at the helm. Such an undertaking likely could have found plenty of financial success, especially since both the franchise and the music artist were popular, but there could have been many good reasons to be wary of the idea.

For instance, the concept of turning such a popular franchise into a musical could have ended in disaster no matter who was attached to it. It's not an easy task to turn seven books into one feature-length musical without entirely changing the source material. There was also the fact that, despite being one of the most iconic musicians of all time, Michael Jackson did not have prior experience with stage musicals. This is not to say that he couldn't have done a good job with it, but it certainly would've made it harder to pull off. Whether or not this might've influenced the quality of the product, unfortunately, will never be known, but it is interesting to think about what could have been.
