Author Quotes

You're a vegetable, you're a vegetable, still they hate you, you're a vegetable, you're just a buffet, you're a vegetable, they eat off you, you're a vegetable.

You know, let's put it this way, if all the people in Hollywood who have had plastic surgery, if they went on vacation, there wouldn't be a person left in town.

You say that workin is what a man's supposed to do. But I say you ain't right if I can't give sweet love to you.

You wanna show them that you're really not scared, you're playing with your life, this ain't no truth or dare, they'll kick you then they'll beat you then they'll tell you it's fair, so beat it.

You'll never make me stay so take your weight off of me. I know your every move so won't you just let me be. I've been here times before but I was too blind to see that you seduce every man. This time you won't seduce me.

Yeah, I think James Brown is a genius you know, when he's with the Famous Flames, unbelievable. I used to watch him on television and I used to get angry at the cameraman because whenever he would really start to dance they would be on a close-up so I couldn't see his feet. I'd shout "show him show him," so I could watch and learn.

Yeah, Wacko Jacko, where did that come from? Some English tabloid. I have a heart and I have feelings. I feel that when you do that to me. It's not nice.

Years ago, I settled with certain individuals because I was concerned about my family and the media scrutiny that would have ensued if I fought the matter in court,

Yes, and I had pimples so badly it used to make me so shy. I used not to look at myself. I'd hide my face in the dark, I wouldn't want to look in the mirror and my father teased me and I just hated it and I cried every day.

You ain't seen nothing yet, and the best is yet to come.

You are not alone.

You are the sun, you make me shine, or more like the stars, that twinkle at night. You are the moon that glows in my heart. You're my daytime, my night-time, my world... you are my life.

You can always dream, and your dreams will come true, but you have to make them come true.

You can't believe it, you can't conceive it, and you can't touch me, 'cause I'm untouchable, and I know you hate it, and you can't take it, you'll break me, 'cause I'm unbreakable.

You can't hurt me, I found peace within myself.

You give me fever from miles around. I?ll pick you up in my car and well paint the town.

With such confusions, don't it make you wanna scream? Your bash abusing victimize within the scheme, you try to cope with every lie they scrutinize, oh, brother, please have mercy, 'cause I just can't take it! Stop pressuring me, just stop pressuring me, stop pressuring me, make me wanna scream.

What I do when I write is that I'll do a raggedy, rough version just to hear the chorus, just to see how much I like the chorus. If it works for me that way when it's raggedy, then I'll know it will just work... Listen to that, that's at home. Janet, Randy, Me... Janet and I are going "Whoo, Whoo... Whoo, Whoo..." I do that same process with every song. It's the melody, it's the melody that's most important, if the melody can sell me, then I'll go to the next step. The idea is to transcribe from what's in your mentality onto tape. If you take a song like "Billie Jean," Where the bass line is the prominent, dominant piece, the protagonist of the song, the main driving riff that you hear, getting the character of the riff to be just the way you want it to be, that takes a lot of time. Listen, you're hearing four basses on there, doing four different personalities, and that's what gives it character, but it takes a lot of work.

When I see children, I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much. That's what I see.

When I step out on stage in front of thousands of people, I don't feel that I'm being brave. It can take much more courage to express true feelings to one person... In spite of the risks, the courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery. It offers what we all want, the promise of love.

When I was a kid, I was denied not only a childhood, but I was denied love. When I reached out to hug my father, he didn't hug me back. When I was scared on an airplane, he didn't put his arm around me and say, "Michael, don't worry. It's going to be OK." When I was scared to go on stage, he said, "get your ass on that stage." ? I will never deny a child love. If it means that I have to be crucified or put in jail for it, then that's just what they're going to have to do.

When they say the sky's the limit to me that's really true.

When you're strong and good, then you're Bad.
