Jackson first spoke openly about his childhood abuse in a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey. He said that during his childhood he often cried from loneliness and would sometimes get sick or start to regurgitate upon seeing his father. In Jackson's other high profile interview, Living with Michael Jackson (2003), the singer covered his face with his hand and began crying when talking about his childhood abuse. Jackson recalled that Joseph sat in a chair with a belt in his hand as he and his siblings rehearsed and that "if you didn't do it the right way, he would tear you up, really get you."

Jackson showed musical talent early in his life, performing in front of classmates and others during a Christmas recital at the age of five. In 1964, Jackson and Marlon joined the Jackson Brothers—a band formed by brothers Jackie, Tito and Jermaine—as backup musicians playing congas and tambourine, respectively. Jackson later began performing backup vocals and dancing; at the age of eight, he and Jermaine assumed lead vocals, and the group's name was changed to The Jackson 5. The band toured the Midwest extensively from 1966 to 1968. The band frequently performed at a string of black clubs and venues collectively known as the "chitlin' circuit", where they often opened for stripteases and other adult acts. In 1966, they won a major local talent show with renditions of Motown hits and James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)", led by Michael.
Ok Folks, now I know its not fair to cut this post short like this But this post would become as long as all my past post combined ifI write all that I wanna write, so I'd like to get straight to my personal Thoughts lol.
Where so I start. Umm aight Michael Jackson.... Damn, Where do I start lol. Aight He's gonna hate me for this, but my lil cousin brian used to GET IT IN with his MJ moves, as million other did. Despite all the scandals and controversy that this man has stirred up in his career, One thing you have no choice but to admit is that his music is and always has been AMAZING! Honestly tell me that you have never liked a Michael Jackson song.... Okay, His beats have always been lightyears ahead ofthere time and his voice, storytellin abilities, and dancing have always been the perfect marraige to those beats. I can remember listening to his tape in my first walkman all the time when I was around 6 or 7, singing along and dancing like him and making some of my own moves. When its all said and done, any and everything that can be said about the man has already been said. He's amazing I always have been and still am a fan. So with all that said This one is going out to the King of Pop!
