1)To begin with, can you introduce yourself (age,job,
My name is Tess, I'm 23 years old and I live in Sweden.
Dancing and music has always been a passion of mine,
and I think it is something I will always continue
to do.... and maybe one day I will do this professionally..
but for now I work as a Lotus Notes programmer.
2)What is Michael to you?
First and foremost, an incredible inspiration. He
is the visualisation of the pure dance and the music
to me ... when his body moves it tells a story based
on the melody and the different instruments in the
song... and as Michael himself puts it: "When
you're dancing, you know you are just interpreting
the music and the sounds and the accompaniment if
there's a driving base - you become the base, if there's
a cello, if there's a string you become that, so you
become the emotion of what that sound is"
3)Do you follow his ideas, like to heal the world,
protect the children
I agree with his ideas that we should aim for healing
the world and stop the wars and we should definetly
protect our children. But I really don't have any
fundings to actively give money to organisations and
foundations ... to be able to perform and give the
money raised to sharity I would gladly do however..
if I ever had the chance... :)
4)Have you ever met Michael?
No I haven't ...I'm still waiting to be blessed with
that experience... my ultimate dream/goal is to dance
with Michael ... :)
6)Have you also ever met Debbie or Lisa Marie?
7)For how long have you been a fan?
8)For how long have you been dancing like Michael?
Well I guess I started back in 1992, but it took
on a more serious tone 1997, then I really began to
study his dance routine and learn and go out to the
public and perform.. =)
9)Have you ever been to one of Michaels
Yep, the HIStory concert back in 1997, Gothenburg,
10)Do you love another star than Michael?
Not like I love Michael .. :) I enjoy a lot of different
music but no one even comes close to the way I love
11)Havent you ever wanted to create your
Yes I have, but I don't know.... seems like I don't
have that certain gift to write music... I've tried
but it just won't come to me the way I've heard Michael
describe it for example.
12)Whats your favorite game?
Umm.... well I enjoy playing the Nintendo and especially
the game MarioCart.. =)
13)Whats you favorite colour?
Well ... depends if we're talking colours on clothes
or anything.. but I've always like the colour of green
... not on my clothes though ... :)
14)Whats your astrology sign?
15)Tell me, do you have any Michael Jackson collectors
Umm..... I have a Michael Jackson doll... and lots
of videomaterial with him.
16)Can you also tell us what albums of Michael
Umm.. let's see.. Off the wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous,
HIStory and Invincible.
17) All albums included, whats you favorite
That's a tricky question... it depends on what mood
I'm in really... but one song that I will never get
tired of ... is a song that doesn't lack anything
.. it's perfect ... and it will never get "out
of date" ... I think you all know what song I'm
talking about ... BILLIE JEAN of course!
18)What to you think of "Invincible"?
Well ... to be honest ... I don't think it's one
of his best albums... it does have some potential
hits in it (You Rock My World, Butterflies, Speechless,
Whatever Happens.. ) ... but most of the songs you
need to listen three times.... four times... five
times even... to begin to enjoy and understand ...
so it's a bit harder to digest then Dangerous for
example.. Dangerous contains more easily digested
songs and most of those songs became number 1 hits
I do feel that Invincible hasn't gotten a chance
to make itself justice however... the singles released
from it hasn't gotten any airplay in the radio ..
which I think is a shame...
19)And whats you favorite song from "Invincible"?
Humz.... good question ... it also depends what mood
I'm in... but say Butterflies =)
20)What do you think of Sony and the promotion?
I feel it has been poorly promoted...
21)Have you been to demonstrations for the promotion
I would have loved to join in on the demonstrations
in London, but I didn't have the money to do it...
22)Have met impersonators?
I've seen impersonators perform but never really
had a private conversation with them ..
23)If you have can you tell their names?
24)Have you any friends who are fans of Michael
Yes I do =)
25)And finally do you have a good sense of humor
I think that is a question of defintion... and personal
taste ... we are all different and find different
things more or less funny ... =)
26)Can you tell me a good joke?
I'm not really someone that tells jokes ... it happens
rarely .. and if I do all of them are in swedish anyway
27)What made you want to imitate Michael Jackson??
Well I like to be on stage... and I love to dance
... and I love Michael Jackson .. seemed like a good
combination to me =)
Best regards, Tess
