Oh my god. This beats the rest of them!
Why do I grab my crotch… You know, I think it happens subliminally. When I dance, if you’re a dancer, you know, you’re just interpreting the sounds and the accompaniment of the music. If there’s a driving bass, you become the bass. If there’s a cello or if there’s a string, you become that. So you become the emotion of what that sound is, okay? So if I’m doing a move and I go bam and I grab myself, it’s the music that compels me to do it. It’s not saying that I’m dying to grab down there and it’s not in a great place, you don’t think about it, it just happens. Sometimes, I’ll look back at the footage and I’ll go… and I go, “Did I do that?”
So I’m a slave to the rhythm.

Phoebe, I want to live inside your head. You’ve done it again! lol
The MJ way.
Omg this is great!
YES. This put a huge smile on my face haha
One time we was in the studio and you know, I said, “Mike, you know, in the Smooth Criminal, how did you lean forward like that?”
I was sitting at a baby grand piano, you know, in the chair and he was sitting up on the piano like this [cross legged], you know what I mean?
And he said, “Well you know, we had a Swami come in and you know, we did a special thing, he did a ritual, and he leaned forward and we all leaned forward together.”
I was like “Really?”
“Nooo, silly!” [laughter]
I’ve never told nobody this, and excuse the vulgarity of if, but it’s late, so it’s cool.
One time, we was sitting there in his office and I said, “Mike, Mike, you know, I gotta pass gas”
He said, “What?”
I said, “Mike, I gotta fart.”
“You gotta what?”
I said, “I have to fart.”
He said, “Well, go ahead then.”
I went [farting noise]
He went [laughing hysterically, looking disgusted]
So he gets on phone right, and I say, “Oh man, I would love some ice cream.”
He says, “Really?” He says, “Okay, hold on a second. [dials phone] Hello? Yes, hey. Guess what LL just did? … He ordered some ice cream.” [laughter]
You know - you know, Mike was a trip. You know, let me tell you something. Working with Michael was the most amazing part of my life. I respect him so much, love him so much… He was incredible, incredible."
