michael jackson: plagiarist?

13 06 2008

Ever wonder where Michael got his moves? Dig this clip of Bob Fosse in The Little Prince and you’ll find plenty of “signature” elements of MJ’s style  – the poses, the moves, the costumes, the pelvic thrusts at small children – the guy even named his kid “Prince.”

This movie (1974) predates Michael’s dancing debut on Motown 25 by almost a decade (1983). Draw your own conclusions. Thanks to j. saKiya sandifer at The Think Movement for first bringing this clip to my attention.
