Mandela: Michael Jackson gives me strength
King of Pop a source of inspiration, former South African president says
Former South African President Nelson Mandela said today that thinking about Michael Jackson gave him strength during the many years he was imprisoned and that the King of Pop continues to be a source of inspiration to him today.
“When you are behind bars with no hope of release, you need to find strength wherever you can,” President Mandela said in an exclusive interview with a Danish magazine. “Personally, I found strength in Michael Jackson.”
The former South African president said that while imprisoned in the 1980’s, he drew emotional sustenance from following Michael Jackson’s recording career.
“It took great courage to leave the Jackson Five and go solo,” President Mandela said. “I thought to myself, if he had the courage to do that, I, too, must have the will to go on.”
Even to this day, President Mandela said, Michael Jackson is “a constant source of inspiration” to him, adding, “When I am not drawing strength from Michael Jackson, I am drawing strength from Martha Stewart.”
Mr. Jackson received kind words from another international icon today, the boxer Muhammad Ali, who today told a Norwegian newspaper today that he, too, draws inspiration from the platinum-selling recording artist.
“When people ask me where I get my strength from, I tell them that I look at the man Michael Jackson looks at when he looks at the man in the mirror,” the former heavyweight champion said.
