    That funny. i loved the BAD era but i don't like the dangerous era. maybe Michael didn't sell a lot in the USA in the BAD era because skin changes etc. that was stupid. more fans around the world loved this era. it's usa. that why Michael didn't do much for this country.

    Does anyone know how the 1993 Oprah Winfrey interview with Michael Jackson came about? Was it Oprah's idea, or was it the Jackson camp's idea?

    That's not what I said. Him being on both was exposure to a massive, new audience.

    It was Sandy Gallin's idea to humanize Michael and to make him reconnect to the American public.That was the point of the Oprah Interview, The Super Bowl and the Grammy awards appearance.

    The Oprah interview in 1993 was actually Bob Jones’ (his chief publicist at the time) idea, not Sandy Gallin’s.

    Months before that interview, Michael Jackson was becoming ready to publicly acknowledge his skin disease (vitiligo) so as to finally put an end to those stories about him hating to be a black man.

    He knew also that these stories cost him already less sales of his ‘BAD’ album because many black people believed these stories and, in turn, they did not buy that album.

    Michael Jackson and Bob Jones during that period (prior to the Oprah interview) had several, very serious, and behind-closed-doors meetings about how Michael Jackson was going to publicly reveal that.

    In those meetings, Michael Jackson would become so emotional that he was even crying his heart out.

    As Bob Jones wrote, after many months of soul searching Michael Jackson felt eventually ready for that public admission of his skin disease.

    The Oprah Winfrey Show looked like the perfect vehicle for that due to the program’s huge success and coverage at the time.

    But the Oprah Winfrey Show served also another purpose for Michael Jackson.

    It was also a way for him to boost sales of his newly released ‘Dangerous’ album (hence, his a cappella rendition of the ‘Who Is It’ song during that interview).

    I was born in 1978 and became a fan in 1991. Old enough to remember very well the Dnagerous years as I was in high school I can without any doubt say that (at least in Europe) Michael was gigantic in the Dangerous era. The Opra interview had extremely big exposure, he had done several tv performances and together with the Dangerous tour and the numerous high quality top notch videos from the album he was a regular on the charts.

    I wouldn't really limit his undoubted peak to 1993 as he was huge throughout the nineties, no matter the Chandler disaster.
    Got to find a way somehow,
    nothing's gonna stop me now,
    got to find a way somehow,
    even though you're gone.
    Things don't seem as bad as they did
    yesterday,
    every minute I get stronger,
    somehow someway.

    Dangerous era is special for me. I was 6 at the time and it was the only time I could enjoy Michael in his prime. The album itself is wonderful, his best in my opinion. He was on fire on stage (until 1993 of course) and the Dangerous tour was something else. I've enjoyed a lot of MTV Michael Jackson weekends, specials en concert footage.

    If 1993 didn't happen, he would set the world on fire with a short film of "Dangerous", shock the world with "Ghost" and we would get an official Dangerous Tour release in the highest quality available.
