Well Joe made me laugh
because it just shows how he handles things. Basically he has been in PR for many years and he managed to get himself a quick £5000 for an 'appearance' rather than an interview but turn it into something where he is actually bringing attention to himself and marketing his acts...!!!!
Majestik clearly works for Joes benefit as they were also together on one of the american chat shows (forgot the name of it but the one where Geraldine Hughes joined them).
It all seemed like 'tactics' to me but they are business tactics and Joe knows how to earn his money - I mean, Louis got to be in the presence of a 'JACKSON' and the famous patriac after all what else does he want for his money.
It does show you how things work doesnt it?
Also noted was the fact that it was mentioned that besides Bashir , David Frost and Louis were in the running to do that 2003 interview with Michael but Bashir got in obviously because of Uri who was very regretful how it turned out. Clearly.
I initially thought that Louis would have been a great choice for Michael but I know that Louis is invasive in a 'tricky' kind of way and in all fairness Im not sure he would have been a good choice for Michael as Louis spins questions and naivety for 'answers' and you can bet what questions he would have been 'clever with'.
David Frost might have been more respectful with questions but to be honest I think anyone asking questions of Michael would still compromise Michaels privacy and likely why he did,nt do anything like this before.
Unfortunately any interview with Michael in an intimate setting would be like laying traps for him as Michael is different from many people and he thinks differently so unless you can really get to understand Michaels youthful mind then it would be extremely easy to miscontrue situations and turn it into something else sensational which is what Bashir did.
Michael, you gotta keep away from INTERVIEWS.
