Friends Cher and Michael Jackson performed together a few times over the years, including a memorable I Want You Back Medley on the Cher Show in 1975. They didn’t stay friends, however. Martin Bashir, a British journalist, created a documentary called Living With Michael Jackson in 2003.
SCROL DOWN TO WATCH MICHAEL JACKSON, 17 YEARS OLD, PERFORMING WITH CHER
Cher stated that she saw Michael one year before backstage at the 50th Anniversary Special of American Bandstand.
She stated that “He had this baby wrapped up in blankets, and I thought: ‘What kinda life?’
I can’t imagine putting my kids through the same thing he did to his children.”
Michael shielded his face while growing up and even covered Blankets as a baby.
Cher has received over 140 awards in her musical career. She said, “I don’t care what he does with my face.”
“He could erase it, as long as I care.”
Cher, who died at 50 years old, paid tribute to him in 2009.
An administered drug overdose caused the singer’s sudden death.
Cher shared the sad news about Michael’s passing with Cher, saying that Michael was “optimistic”, “beautiful” in his youth and “adorable”.
She stated, “God has given you some gifts… The child she chose was extraordinary.
Michael was 10 years younger than the star. The singer called him “great” and added, “He was only a child.”
