Michael’s Dish

Category: Family,Photos,Quotes About MJSeven @ 10:35 pm


The people at Pepsi might not have liked this. When Michael was asked to do Pepsi commercials, there was a problem: Michael didn’t drink Pepsi because he didn’t like it. When Pepsi execs explained that he didn’t actually have to drink it or be filmed drinking it, Michael compromised.

The story that goes with the above photo comes from Jermaine Jackson:

During the tour there was a funny moment which would have given the Pepsi executives a heart attack had they witnessed it. Michael was in his dressing room one day when he decided to grind a can into a plate of food, poured Pepsi all over it like gravy, and then posed for a photo: a close up of his sequined glove presenting his ‘dish’. If ever there was an image that summed up both his devilish humour and the difference between Brand Michael and the real Michael, that might have been it.

Speaking of Pepsi, we learned today that Pepsi are working with Michael’s estate to create a limited-edition package featuring the Michael. The package coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the β€œBad” album, which was released on Aug. 31, 1987.

The package will be a 16 oz. can available in convenience stores and grocery stores around Memorial Day, according to Beverage Digest. The can, said to have a blue background with an image of Michael dancing, is expected to cost 99 cents.

    Dearest seven, this amazing site of yours is a blessing to all of us! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful work you do to contribute in keeping the glorious legacy of our beloved King and Angel shinning so brightly! πŸ™‚

    Through the various stories, incidents, experiences shared by people who were blessed to know and be with Michael we get to see not only the the extraordinary spiritual, intelligent, artistic side of this most extraordinary genius, but also the truly compassionate, loving, caring and (very!)cute and fun-loving side of him! As so many have confessed in the past-Michael has always had a great sense of humour! This story is just something I needed to hear! πŸ˜€ Hahaha!!! It had me laughing so loud and so hard! He is just sooo adorable!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Let me give you a good news from India! I’ve just been watching the most popular,successful and respectable dance reality show in India-its called Dance India Dance! Its running its 3rd season and the judges, anchors, choreographers and contestants are all HUGE Michael Jackson fans! Master Remo D’souza-one of the three judges (and the most loved one!)calls the King of Pop his ‘god’ and wears an arm band with MJ written on it! He gives away the band to those contestants only who are extremely hard working AND do exceptionally well in all different dance styles! The receivers go crazy with joy when they get it! They weep, fall on their knees, jump with joy! πŸ™‚ Yeah! Its considered THAT precious! Today, one of the dancers received an MJ band and another did an MJ medley all decked up in a Thriller jacket, black pants and fedora! It was a treat to watch! I was overjoyed watching him, and through the tears and the smile, I kept saying, “Michael, you live on!”
    We will never never let him go!

    L.O.V.E and God bless!
