LL Cool J about MJ

“My feelings about Michael Jackson are simple. I think that he’s a human being like everyone else and that that guy was,you know, trying to make a career out of disrespecting Mike. I’m a huge fan of Michael and nobody’s perfect. And you know what, if he did get plastic surgery or if he didn’t, what does that matter to that interviewer, like why is that his issue? You know plastic surgery doesn’t mean you are a pedophile.”

- LL Cool J, November 22, 2003

”I’m a fan. I support him a hundred zillion percent,” rapper LL Cool J told reporters at the Vibe Awards. ”Until I see evidence, I’m not going to be convinced. I’m not going to be brainwashed.”

L.L. COOL J also said Michael helped him win a Grammy Award. Michael Jackson agreed to let the rapper sample his hit Lady In My Life, which he turned into hip-hop anthem Hey Lover, earning him the Best Rap Solo Performance Grammy back in 1996.

Cool J insists the gesture was extra-special, because Michael Jackson rarely let other artists cover or sample his work.

He says, "I used a piece of Lady In My Life for my song Hey Lover. Michael cleared the sample, and made it possible for me to get a Grammy. Not a lot of people know that because Michael wasn't big on clearing samples.

"It was generous and his success rubbed off."
