PS ???---是完全不知道 ??---是不太确定 ?---就是个问号啦
TIM KASH(MC): Ever since his unexpected passing last Thursday afternoon, music fans, critics and artists have been reflecting on the musical legacy of Michael Jackson. So we decide to dig deep into ???, to get the opinion of the ultimate expert on the subject---the king of pop himself.
We uncover a rarely seen interview with MJ, filmed for 1999 special MTV's 100 greatest videos. Never so much being said of the singer's personal life in the wake of his death is refreshing to hear from the man himself, talking about what he did best: music.
Tim Kash: 自上周四下午MJ令人意想不到的离世后，许多歌迷，评论家，艺术家都在反复回味他留给世人的音乐财富。所以我们决定深入???, 了解最资深的专家，即流行乐之王MJ自己对于音乐的看法。

Michael Jackson's Innovation and Creativity/ MJ的创新力和想象力
MJ: The idea is to take a step forward and to innovate or else why am I doing it. I'm just, I don't wanna just be another canidat???. You know, I want to, you know, create, do something as totally different and unusual.
It's like, I hate to say, but it's like all somewhere?? to say, it's true, it's like you don't write the song, the song writes itself and it's just kind of falls into your lap??, it's like when you say 'gee. When is I do this?'. That sort of thing.
Alex Colletti: Is video the same or is video more...?
MJ: er...kind of. I think so. It's cursive??? of the same creative, you know, intid??? I think. You just let it create itself really, I know I do.
What Makes A Great Music Video/怎样才能做出优秀的MV
MJ: In my opinion, it has to be completely entertaining and have a sense of, a le??? sense of a co???, for as a...I like a beginning, a middle and an ending, so you could follow a story, and not just be illogic images. You know, and sometimes that's great too, it depends on what the director has a visionary, what he sees really.
Alex Colletti: How much do you put, how much faith or trust, how much of dea??? if director decide you 'll help?? him in the concepts?
MJ: Oh I am very much involved in the complete making and creating of the piece, I mean it has to be from, you know, my soul. Usually, you know, it's an interpretation of the music, so I'll think so, yes.
Alex：But you've in your ??radio nextdoor by the voice, you just pick up the wrong time to start to en?? the tune. Did you get that?
Behind The Video For 'Thriller'/Thriller mv幕后花絮
MJ: I love work with John Landis, cuz we laugh a lot, we are never serious on the set. So it's fun working with John, so I can throw water balloons, and stink bombs and everything at him. That's a ritual for me after we rap?? on each video; I throw a lot of stuff at everybody. So that's fun.
Alex: So how did you first meet John?
MJ: I met John right before doing ‘Thriller’. I called him on the phone, I think he was in London, and I told him when I wanted it to do, what the concept was, and we came together and we wrote it, the two of us.
Alex: When you talking concept with him, did you vision it is being a movie or a music video, cuz it seems, it's like more of a film.
MJ: No. My idea was to make a short film, you know, with conversation in the beginning and make that kind of illinier?? and bookin?? the conversation in the end. But John and I, he is such a fun guy, I really love working with him. We just sat together and chemistry started working, you know, he is fun.
Alex: Do you remember...were you a fan of horror movies in particular?
MJ: Believe it or not, I am afraid to watch scary movies. Honesty, I don't quite like to watch them very much. I never thought I'd be involved in making that sort of thing, but I am.
Alex: The two movies, 'Werewolf scenario' and '???night wooden dance', did you see any of those movies?
MJ: No. I did see 'An American Werewolf in London', which I though was really fun. No, I haven't seen the classic Werewolf one.
Alex: What's your last time saw 'Thriller'?
MJ: Gee...I don't know, I though about watching it again, but I don't cuz I don't wanna scare the children.(laughing XD)

Michael Jackson't Favorite Scene From 'Thrillier'/thriller中MJ最喜欢的镜头
MJ: My idea, I always try to be a pioneer, an innovator and whatever I do, and my dream was to always make, you know , short little film cuz I am big fan of 'Three Stooges', and I love watching Curly, who I think was wonderful, and he makes these like 15mins' shorts. And I say 'gee...I would love to do something like that one day.' and, you know, with the linies??? story, so this was my opportunity.
MJ: Rod Temperton, who wrote thriller, that was one of the first rap sec actually, he though of having a rap at the end of it, we called Vincent Price, and he said 'yes, right away'. So Ron was taking the taxi from his hotel, he is a germanfal???, from his hotel to the studio and he wrote it within twenty??, he did a great job.
MJ: Rod Temperton是thriller的词作者，刚才放的是第一段的rap，他当时想在歌曲最后加上一段rap，我们就打电话给Vincent Price（问他怎么样），他说好的没问题，然后Ron就乘出租车从酒店到录音室，???他用了20分钟就写完了，他完成的非常出色。
Alex: Did you ever meet Vincent Price?
MJ: Yeah, I've known Vincent Price since I was 11. And first time I met him, it was at the NBC studios, and he said 'come here' like that and kind of cruesome voice and I started to cry cuz I thought it was serious. Cuz I used to see him by turning the channels and those kind of...I think he was in the 'The Raven' and 'House of wax' or something, so he scared me.
Alex: is there a talk try to blabla???
MJ: No. There was never ant talk about that.
Alex: 你认识Vincent Price么？
Alex:???(听不清 - -)
Alex: Some of the dialogue, we were watching the video earlier, do you remember any of the dialogue from the scenes? Anything with the jumps out of the ... the film with the beginning?
MJ: From Thriller?
Alex: Is there a favorite line or a favorite part?
MJ: Oh...I like the scene when I am looking at the... when the girl... all these zombies are coming toward us, and she thinks she's safe with me, you know, being her boyfriend and she looks over to me and I become one. And we did at scenes pull in and pull out, move in , the Hitchcock move and I love that moment when I become one. It's fun.

The Choregraphy For 'Thriller'/thriller的编舞
MJ: It was a delicate thing to work on, because I remember my original approach was how do you make zombies and monsters dance without it be comical? So I said we have to do just the right kind of movement. So it doesn't become something that you laugh at, but it just has to be, you know, take it to another level. So I got in a room with Michael Peters, and he and I together, kind of matching, how the zombies should move by making faces in the mirror. I used to come to rehearsal sometimes when monster-makeup on and I love doing that. So he and I collaborated and we both choreographed the piece. And I thought start like you know kinda thing, and going to this kind of jazzy step, you know. kinda grow something like that, not too much ballet or whatever.(laughing)
Alex: right. That stiff movement to it..
MJ:编舞是个很费工夫的事，起初我尽量不想让那些鬼怪的舞蹈看起来很滑稽，所以我说要编出那些完全契合鬼怪感觉的舞蹈动作，这些动作不是引人发笑的，所以在动作的编排上要求更高。我当时和Michael Peters一起在房间里研究舞步，怎么一边跳舞一边对着镜子扮恐怖的表情。我很喜欢有几次带妆（鬼怪扮相）的排练。我和Michael Peters合作，最后一起编排了那支舞蹈。我当时想跳这类动作（M摆头~），然后过渡到有点爵士感的舞步，就像这类动作，而不是类似芭蕾或者其他的一些动作。
