We live in a world without Michael Jackson. Sure we have his music, his art, his legacy but the King of Pop blew the stand exactly 6 years ago today. Suppose Michael is alive and well in an alternate universe? If you think I’m crazy just pose this question to a quantum physicist; the answer might surprise you. Heck, it was enough to get me excited enough to create this hasty painting to honour the great entertainer. I recently had a conversation with Michael on the other side of the galaxy; here’s what he had to say:

F: Hi Michael! So good to have this opportunity to chat with you. Tell me, what’s life like on your end?

MJ: I really love it here. It’s so amazing! I’ve never felt such peace in my life.

F: Do you miss Earth?

MJ: Sometimes. I miss my children most of all and my family and all the people I’ve ever loved. But no, I don’t miss Earth. People can be so mean and cruel. Out here, there’s nothing like that; only love. This atmosphere is so blissful! I wish humans could feel more love for everything around them. That would make the world a better place.

F: Isn’t this the message that you’ve tried to relay through your music?

MJ: Yes, yes of course! I think I made a lot of people happy with my music, especially children. They are the future of planet Earth you know. All I ever wanted to do was bring joy, light and love through my artform. Some people didn’t get it but that’s okay. Maybe one day they will. If it’s not through my music, it will come in a different way.

F: Michael, I’m going to ask you a question that might make you uncomfortable. You don’t have to answer if you don’t want too. Cool?

MJ: Ok.

F: Why did you have so much plastic surgery? Some people say it’s because you hated your African features.

MJ: Well…they don’t know what they’re talking about. First of all, they have no idea what it was like to be me. The real reason why I chose to alter my features has nothing to do with me hating my blackness and everything to do with changing my outer appearance to match my inner identity.

F: Inner identity? Can you explain a little further.

MJ: I used to have these dreams where I would see myself with features like what you drew in your painting. This happened a lot when I was a child and I was confused. I couldn’t understand what it meant because when I looked in the mirror, I saw a black kid. As I got older, I began to realize that those dreams were actually memories of a past life. What a lot of people don’t know is that plastic surgery is not a modern invention. The Atlanteans and Egyptians were altering their features thousands of years ago. There is so much that modern society does not know and those that do keep a lot of it secret.

F: Interesting. But don’t you think you went a bit overboard? For me personally, after Thriller you could have stopped; your face was so beautiful then. And still recognizably Michael to many.

MJ: There were days when I looked in the mirror and cried at what I did to myself. Yes, sometimes I thought I went too far. But there was nothing I could do to reverse the damage. I just had to accept it and keep living, day by day. The one thing I learned from that experience was you can never be physically perfect in this world, no matter how you try. The only perfect thing in this world is pure love that comes from a mother and especially children and animals. They don’t judge you, they don’t expect anything from you except love. And that helped to keep me alive through so many challenges and unbelievable difficulties that I would not wish on my worst enemy.

F: Do you feel that your work on Earth is finished? Do you see yourself coming back here at some point?

MJ: Hmmm…well, I think the Earth is so beautiful. I had so many amazing experiences there and in spite of all the pain, I know I’m truly blessed. I came into this world, knowing what my purpose was, having all this amazing support and opportunities to grow into what I came to be. I’ve been travelling all across the universe as a messenger of love bringing healing to other beings through light, color and sound for a very long time. As much as I love Earth, I shall not be returning. I will continue to spread my message in other worlds, for this universe is so vast. Humans need to learn more about being in their hearts before they can even begin to have friendly relations with extra-terrestrials.

F: How does the Earth situation look from where you are?

MJ: Right now, it’s very serious. Humans are in a lot of trouble, more than they realize. If they continue to hurt each other and pollute the environment, then they are not only endangering other lifeforms on the planet, they are also endangering themselves. Many extra-terrestrials are actually not impressed with humans and don’t want to make contact with them, and there are others that do. So if people want to see change for the better, they have to start with themselves.

F: That’s the whole point of “Man In The Mirror.”

MJ: Exactly. That’s the message I was trying to get across.

F: I think a lot of people got it. So there is still hope for humans after all.

MJ: There is always hope. Keep hope alive.

F: Thanks Michael! I’d love to swing by your hood sometime.

MJ: Frankie, you’re always welcome to drop by!

F: I love you Michael.

MJ: I love you too Frankie.
