Now there are two names you don’t often see in a sentence together. But according to TMZ and Gotham Chopra, Michael Jackson was trying to find a way to contact Kim Jung Il! Hmm, seems MJ was thinking if he could teach the Dear Leader to moonwalk or something, he might be able to talk him into pardoning the two American journalists. You remember them, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the reporters who were sentenced to 12 years hard labor after being caught “spying” on the North Korean border. Anywho Michael had contacted Chopra (a few months before his death) to see if he could help in convincing North Korea’s leader to release the reporters. Michael thought Kim Jong Il might be a fan of his because “You know, he wears jackets like mine.” Bless, that would have been bigger than his comeback tour. Geez, they could have recorded a duet together…. imagine, the two “Kings of Pop”. And don’t get me started on the music video!
