Lisa Marie Presley's Myspace Blog about Michael

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson's former wife recently published a blog entry on her Myspace page called "He Knew". In it she details Michael Jackson's own prediction of his impending fate...

The following is an excerpt from Lisa Marie Presley's Myspace blog:

Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general.

I can't recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my Fathers Death.

At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, "I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did."

I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.

14 years later I am sitting here watching on the news an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home, the big gates, the crowds outside the gates, the coverage, the crowds outside the hospital, the Cause of death and what may have led up to it and the memory of this conversation hit me, as did the unstoppable tears.

A predicted ending by him, by loved ones and by me, but what I didn't predict was how much it was going to hurt when it finally happened.

Michael Jackson was and always will be the best performer of all times.

The world didn't always treat him fair and he had a rough life.

His music is still one of the most played tunes on tv, radio and broadcasting websites.

Now the critics wish they treated him better.
