    Default Eddie Murphy talks about Whatzupwitu and Remember the Time

    http://nypost.com/2015/02/07/eddie-m...chael-jackson/

    Q: What about the later music you put out?
    A: A lot of critics also s–t all over “Whatzupwitu,” which I recorded [in 1993] withMichael Jackson. But 20 years later, Michael Jackson is gone, and not a lot of people have footage of them dancing around in the clouds with him [as in the video for “Whatzupwitu”]. That’s part of my history, now.
    Q: How did you get him to be on that song?
    A: I asked, and he did it! I knew Michael since he was 19. The whole Jackson family was really warm to me. I was just hanging out with Jermaine a couple of months ago.



    Michael wasn’t “***** *****” when he was with me. He was a real person with his family and kids, but he could turn on the persona of Michael Jackson instantly.
    I remember being three feet away from him on the video for “Remember the Time” [which starred Murphy]. When someone yelled “action” and he started dancing and doing all that s–t, it was like he plugged into a wall.

    Whatzupwitu is only embarrassing in the fact that Michael completely steals the show.

    Other than that, pretty fun song.

    Nice words from Eddie Murphy. I don't think he's talked about Michael since he passed has he? Love Whatzupwitu. Michael's so adorable in it

    I love this video too yes Michael did steal the show as always i like the part at the end too when Eddie cover Michael mouth that was so cute as if to say stop sing Michael. Eddie and Michael both had fun doing this video and that was nice to see. Eddie was a true friend to Michael he never that i know of say anything negative about Michael.

    I sometimes forget about this song.
    Forget Lost Children and Little Susie.
    Whatzupwithu is definitely the worst Michael Jackson song ever. Fortunately, it's not really HIS song, though.
    Eddie never topped his classic "Party All The Time"

    But if you guys like it, great!

    Whatzupwitu has a good beat and Eddie's singing is actually pretty good. The video I always thought was neat too.

    Also, just me personally, when I first saw the video it seemed like Murphy was kinda flirting with Jackson. Maybe I'm reading into it a bit much but he was touching up on the guy quite a bit! I guess anybody would be excited to be in a Michael Jackson video.
