Pop star Michael Jackson’s diary revealed that he was determined to become “the first multi-billionaire actor, artist and director” shortly before his death.
A new book by investigative journalist Dylan Howard stated that Jackson was obsessed with the idea of ”eternity”.
In excerpts from “Bad: An unprecedented coverage of Michael Jackson,” obtained by the Mirror website, notes by King of Pop revealed that he is grappling with how to become “immortal” like Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney.
He also seemed to focus on becoming the ‘first multi-billionaire director and actor’, as his secret memoirs listed that he thought about how to achieve this, by earning $ 20 million a week.
When it comes to raising a lot of money, Michael writes about Cirque du Soleil parties and deals with companies like Nike.
Michael is said to have had plans to reproduce films such as the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Sinbad’s seventh voyage, and was also keen to hire a ‘marketing man’.
And in the pages of the diary from his reflections that appear in the book, he wrote: “If I do not focus on a movie, there is no eternity.”
In a darker tone, Jackson’s diary recounts that he wrote about his fear of someone wanting to kill him, as he felt that someone was planning to “destroy” him. He wrote, “Bad guys are everywhere. They want to destroy me and take my company.”
Howard revealed that he is set to “give the book an insight into the star’s mind as he prepares to make a final attempt to relaunch his career and pay off his growing debts.”
The world star died in 2009 at the age of 50, while preparing for his tour This Is It, as a result of an overdose of propofol and benzodiazepine, which was given to him by his own doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray.
Before and after his death, Michael was charged with child sexual abuse, with the latest allegations made in the 2019 series: Leaving Neverland.
