I am very shocked and saddened about Micheal Jackson. I've always liked his music and his videos are cleverly done with so much detail. A true legend and great singer and performer who cannot be beaten

Uh I heard on the many documentaries, that he loved Kentucky Fried Chicken, and even got buckets for himself and his children. I used to think he was for years, but definatly not truee from what I know.

It seems that Michael was a strict vegetarian for years until his doctors pressured him into eating chicken and fish for supposed health reasons. However, Michael was a vegetarian at heart. "(...) I go through these serious food crises when I could go weeks without eating. I take stuff to keep weight on. What turns me off is that I don't like eating anything that used to be alive and now it's dead on my plate. I want to be a strict vegetarian, but my doctors keep trying to throw in chicken and fish." (From "The Michael Jackson Tapes" by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, p. 232) He also cared about fish, though. ^^ When his son Prince said he wanted to go fishing, Michael answered, "I'll take you fishing one day as long as we throw the fish back in the water after we catch it." (p. 255) A truly beautiful man. So, Michael was what some might call a semi-vegetarian for a large part of his life but also a strict vegetarian for years. In his Moonwalk biography which was released in 1988 he speaks about his vegetarian diet and states that he does not eat fish or chicken. I hope this answers your questions.

Hi Chikenfluff(cant believe this username here!:) ) Doctors know very little or nothing about nutrition. Especially conventional medicine doctors. Even if they do, its not true that you must eat meat for health reasons/ body type etc. Its a myth that they themselves believe in , unfortunately. I know many doctors in the US who dont think so. Lance Armstrong- the celebrity athlete who came out of cancer recently is a vegan. So, pls reconsider. Thanks.
