That Might Have Been Weird

Apparently Michael Jackson, you know the late King of Pop, wanted to make a musical based upon the Harry Potter books. There is no argument saying this would have been an entertaining, cash cow, piece of entertainment...but I think it did raise some questions as to what the King of Pop's motives were...J.K. Rowling may or may not have thought the same thing when she turned down the offer. Were his motives to produce and create what would have undoubtedly been one of the greatest (in my Harry Potter loving/huge respect for MJ as an artist opinion) entertainment pieces of all time...or were his motives to simply lure young ones into his proximity. I guess no matter how incredible the musical would've always had that shadow behind it...somewhat unfortunate because it would have been a collaboration of 2 of the most creative minds of our time in a synergy of music, moonwalking and fantasy that would've blown Glee out of the water (even the highest rated to-date Brittany/Britney episode). Too bad MJ made a few too many of his fantasies a reality.
