Michael LOVED to Fish ;)
Fish: code word for attractive women in Michael Jackson’s vicinity.
Fishing: the act of catching fish in your vicinity.
Angel: seemingly a very attractive type of fish
LaToya’s Autiobiography on Mike as a teen,
Back then, Michael was extremely outgoing, and a flirt too, probably from always being around older mucicians. We’d pass a pretty girl, and my brother would remark, “Boy, did you see the pair of cakes on her!” Or he’d steal peeks under dresses, then ask me with a giggle, “Guess what color panties she has on?”
“Michael!” I was hardly shocked, we’d come to expect that kind of thing from him.
Michael Lovesmith, former fellow Motown recording artist, 70s
“Don’t believe the nonsense about Michael being gay and stuff. When there were girls around he’d talk about them to the guys and run around pinching their asses and then run away. He was a real funky street dude, know what I mean?”
Pete Bennett, Promoter, 1974/5
“He had an eye for pretty girls. Often when I would be in his company, Michael would point a girl out and admire her looks or figure.”
Interview with the Michael and the Jacksons, 19th February 1979,
Q: What do you like most, things you like?
MJ: I like fish. (brothers laugh)
Tim Whitehead 80s,
“He’s not gay; I really feel certain of that.” said his first cousin Tim whitehead, who has toured with Michael as a roadie, ” Many times a good-looking girl would walk by and Mike would whisper, ‘ Hey, what do you think of her? She’s somethin else, isn’t she?”
Dr Hoefflin, 1984
“We would also spend time together over the years going through books and magazines. Michael would always look at magazines of pretty girls, never boys.
Dr Hoefflin, 63, said: “Michael loved beautiful women.
“After Thriller came out he asked me to take him to the Playboy mansion to see the stunning girls.
“I was friends with Hugh Heffner, made those arrangments and was with him when he decribed how beautiful and desirable all the women were.
“All the time I was ever with him – whether it was on tour or off tour – he would always comment to me and others about pretty girls he would see.”
Bad Tour Security Guard 1987-9,
When we were riding around in a car in Berlin, Michael would look at the women in miniskirts and high heels …”Look at her hips!” and “Look at her ass!” Michael would say.
However, when we passed the girl in question he realized she was a 50 year old woman.
It is needless to say that Michael and I had a good laugh about that. It goes without saying that Michael is pro ass?
WAMO Pittsburg Radio Station, January 16 1998
“You know something? Mike done changed after he started gettin’ some…” Then he went into a story of how he met MJ once during the Victory Tour in D.C. and he was shy and timid. Then he met him just recently at a gathering with Teddy Riley or someone and MJ was completely different. Open, funny, not shy and most of all checking out the women with Teddy and this DJ and some more guys. Someone asked him what he found most attractive in a lady and he said light eyes and long legs and then pointed out some chick that fit that description and all the guys agreed she was “da bomb.” In the words of this DJ, “Mike is a true brother who has gotten a bad rap and as long as he was in radio he would support the brother.”
Mark Lester, 2000
‘We’d go out for dinner or a coffee and he would notice women walking past and say, ‘She’s so cute, she’s got a nice tush,’ but then he would be very apologetic.
Rabbi Schmuley on Howard Stern, 6th April 2001
Howard: “We’re here with Rabbi Shmulock. Is Michael gay?”
Rabbi: “Michael is firmly heterosexual.”
Howard: “How do you know?”
Rabbi: “Because he’s always saying to me that there are beautiful woman.”
Schmuley Tapes, 2000/1
SB: If a woman walks round with all her cleavage showing….
MJ:Frank loves it.
(Michael gestured to Frank Cascio, who was sitting right next to us. We all laughed.)
MJ: Of course you want to look.
@9:30 Invincible Signing Part 1 November 2001,
An older woman approaches the table to have her CD signed and MJ says “hi” to her than as she leaves he says, “elderly fish.”
(girl wearing a crop top and wearing a navel ring approaches Michael, Michael gestures and asks to bring her closer, he studies her belly button)
MJ: How does that work? Does it hurt?
After Michael gives the girl a hug, the man wearing grey next to Michael says: Do I see something sticking out?
MJ: You naaasty!
The “Angel” in the tight white top approaches the table to have her CD signed and the security guard grins at MJ and raises his eyebrows at him and says “I’ll say no more.”
The girl says “Hi” then after she’s had her CD signed she leaves and MJ starts laughing and one of the security guards says “You dirty dog!”
Cross talk, security guards: “Angel”
Security Guard 1: “Got an angel *inaudible* a little away”
Security Guard 2: “The one with the white top, oh yeah *inaudible*.”
Michael: “Is she hot?”
Guy having his CD signed by MJ swivels his head to look around for the same girl
Security Guard 1: “Oh yeah, she looks amazing.”
Security guard: “Angel?” (having spotted another one)
Other security guard: “Yeah!”
Michael visiting Gary Indiana, June 11 2003
Fans follow the limo and a female fan with large breasts presses up against the glass of the limo as it leaves
MJ: “There’s some GOOD fish!”
MJ: (looking back at the crowd) “There’s some gooooood fish back there! Ooh! That one right there!”
Karen Faye: (laughing) “Oh look at that one right there! Look at her! Look!”
MJ: “Look at her titties! (laughing) Her titties are going… (makes bouncing motion)”
MJ: (watching people still following the limo) “Tell the police to be gentle with those girls, do not be mean – (points at girl) I like that one right there.”
Cousin: “Me too.”
Aaron Carter, 2003
However, Carter insisted that he thought Jackson liked women.
“He’ll see a girl and comment on her,” Carter said, “or want to touch her [bottom]. He likes girls.”
MJ’s Bodyguards, 2007-2009
MJ admired the way women styled their hair and the way they dressed. He commented about diffent women just walking by. He would ask us what did we think about sertain women, he liked talking.
Make Up Artists and Costume Designers that have worked with him since the early 80s (Karen Faye since 82):
ABC: Was Michael Jackson gay?
KF: Absolutely not.
ABC: I mean, you say that with conviction
KF: He would always, like, wherever we were, he would always kind of (mimicking him, slyly eyes around herself) – he called it fishing. He looked around for all the hot girls. And he’d – “Turkle, Turkle, that ones really hot. Ooh, look how -ugh- look how her hair just swirls!”
ABC: So you don’t think that was an act?
Bush: (shaking head) No.
KF: What? That he was doing it for me?
KF: No (shaking head) no, absolutely not.
ABC: Did he ever comment on young men?
KF & Bush: No, no.
ABC: So you don’t think he was just in hiding by his sexuality?
KF: No (all shake heads)
Michael’s Armenian Driver Gokor (you can see a license plate for “Gok” in Who Is It), July 2010
He said that when they were in London and a hot woman would pass by them Michael would use some Armenian words to talk about the woman with Gokor so that if his children were near him they couldn’t understand what they were talking about. He would say “lavna che Gokor,” which in English means “isn’t she hot Gokor” or he would call those hot women “pretty fish.” They spoke about the fact that Michael had a woman he loved very much and had been near him for many years. It wasn’t a secret but her identity was kept a secret.
