During the Michael Jackson documentary which aired on ABC last night in the US, there is a moment from last summer when Jackson and his 6-year-old son are in a Las Vegas elevator with the documentary interviewer Martin Bashir and his cameras. The interviewer notices Jackson's son Prince Michael I is wearing Star Wars shoes and asks him about them. Here's what transpired:
The whole time this transpired, Jackson had a look on his face like he agreed with his son on the issue. At least 27 million households reportedly watched this interview last night and heard that rather unfavorable viewpoint about Attack of the Clones. Obviously this was a minor part of the documentary, but noteworthy here; what did America think of the son's statement and the interviewer's and father's opinions?Bashir: I see you've got the Star Wars shoes.
Prince: Not Part 2.
Bashir: Not Part 2?
Prince: Nuh uh. Dad got these for me.
Bashir: Oh right.
Prince: He got me Spider-Man shoes too.
Bashir: What's he been telling you about not Part 2? Why don't you like Star Wars Part 2?
Prince: Because it's boring and slow.
Bashir: Right. And what makes you think you're qualified to make such a strong judgement?
Prince: (confused look)
Michael Jackson (clarifying to Prince): What makes you think you're right about that. You're sure you're right?
Bashir: He has a good point.
