Happy Monday MMT Fam! We have a very timely giveaway today – the 58th birthday of the late “King of Pop” Michael Jackson. In his honor, and in anticipation of the August 30 release date, we are giving away a copy of ELIZABETH and MICHAEL: THE QUEEN OF HOLLYWOOD, THE KING OF POP, A LOVE STORY by acclaimed author/biographer Donald Bogle (Dorothy Dandridge: A Biography, Heat Wave: The Life and Career of Ethel Waters).
“Elizabeth and Michael” chronicles the lives of the two iconic artists, while drawing parallels that would ultimately attract them and solidify their friendship – such as being born into households with strict religious practices, experiencing fame in early childhood, problematic interpersonal relationships, and addiction to pain killers as young adults. Bogle builds a case to support Taylor’s belief that she could save Michael from himself, and Michael’s willingness to confide in Taylor as someone who could truly relate, as the basis for their unbreakable bond.
