    I only copied MJ part here from Eddie's recent interview with The Guardian

    You recently told Rolling Stone: “I can’t make a wack track because I know what wack is.” But most people panned your 1993 single with Michael Jackson, Whatzupwitu.

    You know, I was dancing around in the clouds with Michael Jackson. However wack anyone thought Whatzupwitu was, there’s not a lot of people that have footage of themselves dancing around in the clouds with Michael Jackson. I do have that for ever.

    And obviously you’d known Michael, and imitated him in your standup about a decade before collaborating.

    Yeah, I knew Michael for years and years before that track came out. What’s interesting, when you watch that routine from Delirious when I’m doing Michael Jackson jokes, that was actually the first time anybody even did a joke about him. It’s not mean-spirited at all, it’s just all about how he was so sensitive. And then I sang. Michael loved Delirious, it was playful and fun.

    How’d that compare to Saturday Night Live, where you imitated Stevie Wonder while stood right beside him?

    Michael and Stevie were people that I knew, and they were part of my social circle. I was able to play around and poke fun – they would never get mad. If you look at it, and compare it to the stuff that people are doing now, it’s totally not mean-spirited. And going back to what I was saying, people are allowed to not like something. And maybe a lot of people did think Whatzupwitu was wack, and that’s what’s cool about music: you have a visceral response to it, and you either like it or you don’t, as soon as you hear it. The good thing about that is that if you come with a hot track, they’re gonna like it. So just because somebody didn’t like a track I put out, that never stopped me. I’ve always written, recorded and produced – I never stopped doing it. I stopped putting music out, but I didn’t stop making it. Then it got to now where if you listen to Whatzupwitu and then you listen to Oh Jah Jah, you can tell that I’ve been in the studio working at this.

    I like Eddie's MJ parodies.



    And this is the Stevie Wonder one.



    And one other I loves was the James Brown parody.

    Verse 1: Eddie Murphy]
    Sun is gonna shine
    Flowers gonna grow
    The clouds will sprinkle showers
    Rivers gonna flow
    Man ain't got the power
    To kill nothing but himself
    Man is a creation
    Man is nothing else

    [Chorus: Michael Jackson]
    Whatzup, whatzup, whatzupwitu?
    Whatzup, whatzupwitu?
    Whatzupwitu? (x2)

    [Verse 2: Eddie Murphy (& Michael Jackson)]
    Always is the mountain, always is the trees
    Always is the ocean, always is the seas
    (Whatzupwitu?!)
    We can't stop this world, 'cause it's not our world
    We can just jack each other up
    Heavenly Father been mighty patient
    He got your number
    Peeped your disease
    (He knows you're falling', you're falling', you're falling')
    Mmm... falling'
    Man is a creation
    Man is nothing else



    I am a child of the Moon , Being raised by the Sun, In an earth filled with Pain , With a sky full of Hope.

    Yes! This! I always feel like everyone (both male and female) always sort of fell in love with Michael if that makes sense. He was just so loveable and charming. All. The. Time.

    My same thoughts and honestly can't blame them! Michael's aura is... pure magic <3

    I can enjoy this video(Whatzupwitu)...it's easy to digest. It has a similar feel to Blue's Clues to me and I always thought Steve Burns was so fun doing stuff like these two are doing among the animation and such. I kept waiting for Mailbox to show up or Side Table Drawer...lol. Blue's Clues entered the scene about 3 years after this video in 1996.

    Thanks for posting the Eddie interview and the video.

    Oh, also, that James Brown segment from Delirious is hilarious. hahaha.
