People mess up all the time. Michael Vick, he made some mistakes. He surrounded himself around the wrong people. And you’ve got to be careful with that. But he’s redeemed himself and came back.
Being on a Michael Bay set is… well, it’s the only set I’ve ever been on. But I would imagine there’s no set that’s run quite like it. It’s big, it’s loud, it’s powerful, it’s intense, it’s dirty, it’s hot, it’s sweaty – and it’s really exciting. There’s never a dull moment; there’s never a quiet moment.
My first-ever job in the movie business, I was an art student at Carnegie Mellon, and they were shooting the movie ‘Gung Ho’ in Pittsburgh, and I worked as an extra for a few days. Michael Keaton bumped into me in one scene, and it’s in the movie. And I worshipped him.
I love heavy-metal music more than anything in the world, but I’m equally drawn to Michael Buble or Michael Feinstein.
I have the highest goals for myself. That’s going out there and being the best player on the floor every time. That’s my mentality. If it’s Michael Jordan, you know, that’s the mentality I take to the court.
Bob Altman got nothing from the TV series ‘M*A*S*H,’ and the royalties for the theme song went to his oldest son, Michael, who wrote it as a 15-year-old poet!

Michael Caine, Tom Courtenay and Al Pacino made me want to act. I’ve always been interested in men with a vulnerable side.
‘Up in the Air’ is not a political movie. It won’t be mistaken for either a Michael Moore or Any Rand polemic on capitalism.
I have a gut instinctive feeling that I will be as massive as Madonna, as massive as Michael Jackson… Whitney Houston, sure.
The protests and pain over the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown had me wondering if we can ever experience the world as others do. For no matter how disputed the circumstances of both cases, many people see what happened in black and white.
I love Agassi – I really followed him a lot when I was a teenager and remember when guys like him and Michael Chang were just unstoppable. He was really inspiring. Every match was so dramatic and exciting. The guy played with a lot of heart.
For example, Michael Jordan earns $100million a year but continues to play basketball and remains a modest human being.
I’ve done movies with Oliver Stone and Michael Mann. And I’ve done quite a few dramas in my time, from the theatre to film work. I just think the audience is used to seeing me on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and ‘K-9,’ and ‘Curly Sue’ and of course, ‘According to Jim.’ I think that my comedies have been the most popular.
I never have crushes, apart from my husband Michael, I guess, because I was obsessed with him, and I didn’t speak to him for nearly a year. I kept going into the restaurant where he worked to look at him.
At the end of the day, what would be a Canadian sensibility? Is it Michael Ondaatje? Alice Munro? Is Margaret Atwood more Canadian than Neil Bissoondath?
Speak slowly, Michael. He is an honourable man.
Instead of the Beatles and the Stones, my mum and dad were listening to Michael Jackson, Barry White.

Why on earth do we keep sending bozos like Michael Bennet back to Washington when they fail to get anything done?
I think that Michael Jackson, just as an entertainer, as a figure who embodies the contradictions of black identity and the possibilities of R&B music in the ’70s and ’80s, will continue to be one of the most recognized and formidable human beings that we’ve ever produced in our tradition.
An English journalist called Michael Viney told me when I was 25, that I would write well if I cared a lot what I was writing about. That worked. I went home that day and wrote about parents not understanding their children as well as we teachers did, and it was published the very next week.
I have a very eclectic iPod. So I’ve got my cardio people – so it’s anything from Beyonce to some Jay-Z to Janelle Monae, her song ‘Tightrope,’ that’s a good cardio song. And then I’ve got Sting. I’ve got Mary J. Blige. I’ve got The Beatles. I’ve got Michael Jackson. I try to pick the songs that I personally love.
Michael Jackson carried urban America and eventually American society on his vocal cords for a good 25 to 30 years before even hip-hop became the vox populi of America, and then as an adult he shattered racial barriers.
Michael and Alex, I love you. And we’re going to have the biggest celebration when you get home.
We should fight to preserve a country where people such as Michael Moore get to miss the point as badly as he misses it. Michael Moore represents everything I detest in a human being.
When I was growing up, the brands that were most powerful were people brands, like Michael Jackson or Madonna. They stood for something that, perhaps, wasn’t wholly who they were, which then became an image that they sold. That’s still a brand to me.
Philadelphia‘s a good science-fiction town. There are many professional writers here, like Michael Swanwick, Tom Purdom, Gregory Frost, Victoria McManus and others. There are professional artists such as Bob Walters and Tess Kissinger and Susan McAninley.
Everything that Michael Fassbender touches is elevated.
I relate to Michael Keaton’s character in ‘Birdman’ so much, how he has that voice being so mean and then another boosting his confidence.

Where was the closure for Michael Brown’s parents?
Michael Bloomberg has yet to get his due for engineering the New York entrepreneurial ecosystem.
I did the voice of Cyclops on ‘Shrek the Third’. I don’t know how I got that. They said they wanted a Michael Chiklis type, and apparently it came down to me and Michael Chiklis, so how they gave it to me, I don’t know.
I want to work very hard on music, put out a lot of nice product – good quality product – and then just help people out, like a Gucci Mane, like a Future… like a Prince, like a Michael Jackson.
I’ve thought from the start that a parallel federal investigation into the death of Michael Brown is important. I also believe that our state and local elected officials have been given a responsibility by the people who they work for to get to the bottom of this tragedy.
That’s the thing about Michael Moore, when you read his stuff, he’s so sure he’s right about everything; even when he’s wrong, he’s entertaining.
Satan understands the power of men and women united in righteousness. He is still stinging from his banishment into eternal exile after Michael led the hosts of heaven, comprised of valiant men and women united in the cause of Christ, against him.
Michael Brown’s death and the suffocation of Eric Garner in New York for selling untaxed cigarettes indicate something is wrong with criminal justice in America.
I leave the hip thrusts to Michael Jackson.
I only have disdain for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He raised taxes and has increased regulations. What else is new? He’s a bully who wants to micro-manage people’s lives by mandate, not persuasion.
In two years, I’ll be making more than Michael Schumacher.
I try to limit my time with Michael Davies to as little as possible per week, and he is pretty good with that, since he has a bazillion things to do. When I do see him, I try not to talk about dental work or anything like that because I know the Brits get very sensitive.
My friends were the class clowns, but I was the one in class doing Michael Jordan or teachers for no reason. I’ve always been amazing at impersonating real people, too, rather than celebrities.
I always say, to this day, that the Air Jordan guy was great and God bless him. But I’ll always just remember Michael, the guy.
Michael Fassbender is phenomenal in ’12 Years a Slave.’
I’m really into tall boots. I just got some new ones from Michael Kors that have these little gold studs. I have Valentino ones that I really love. Real, real tall boots!
I can’t imagine bringing in somebody else to direct my show. Wouldn’t that be funny, if next season I had, like, Michael Bay come in and direct ‘Better Things‘? I wonder what that would be like?
In 2007, Michael Grimm, former Marine, former FBI agent, accountant and attorney, was poised for success as a small business owner. Instead, as alleged, Grimm made the choice to go from upholding the law to breaking it. In so doing, he turned his back on every oath he had ever taken.
Playing with Michael Jordan would be a great opportunity for me. I would have someone around I could learn a lot from. I look up to him as a player and as a person, and that would make me a better player and person.
For example, Michael Mann’s film Collateral – there is certain kinds of stories that lend themselves to digital photography. Some things are very raw stories that digital photography kind of lends itself to.
Your voice is like a very serious instrument that you have to tame if you want to be an amazing singer – Marvin Gaye or Michael Jackson.
I was blown away watching Michael Keaton act because he was such a maniacal, evil person on set. He takes on a totally different life, and it was so amazing to watch him work.
Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to play the game.
I’ve always had great respect for Paddington because he is amusingly English and eccentric. He is a great British institution and my generation grew up with the books and then Michael Horden’s animations.
I feel like nowadays it’s almost become a corny thing to say that you want to be a role model or do something good for the world, but the artists I’ve looked up to – like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Prince – were about something.
Michael is not only my friend, he’s my family.
I remember liking ‘A Cinderella Story’ with Hilary Duff a lot when I was younger. I loved that movie, but maybe it was because of Chad Michael Murray. It was a really sweet movie, and I always liked Hilary Duff.
Early inspirations included Michael Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie… Those were the people I actually wound up studying just to hone my craft.
‘Man In The Mirror’ by Michael Jackson – I used to have my very first dance parties with my kids to this song when they were little, even carried them around to it. It just makes you want to be a better person and be inspired.
In Halloween, I viewed the characters as simply normal teenagers. Laurie, Jamie Lee’s character, was shy and somewhat repressed. And Michael Myers, the killer, is definitely repressed. They have certain similarities.
I could not see myself going back into the studio without Tommy Dowd, our beloved producer who passed away in 2002. Then in 2009, Michael Lehman, my manager, really pushed me to meet with T Bone Burnett. I ended up meeting with T Bone in Memphis, and we hit it off right away; I knew he was a guy I could work with.
A Republican in my state of Arkansas feels about as out of place as Michael Vick at the West Minister dog show.
Sometimes a producer and an artist get together and they make magic like Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson. As far as my own music career – you could liken my chemistry with Timbaland to Marty Scorsese and Robert De Niro.
I’ve been performing since I was very little, about three years old. I was inspired at first by the MTV artists of the ’80s and started putting on ‘shows‘ in the apartment, most of them set to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ album. In my mind, there was a full lighting rig behind me… but it was just a couch.
My favorite artist in the world is Michael Jackson, and he revolutionized the music video aspect of music.
My first super-worn-out tapes were Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ and the soundtrack to ‘Dirty Dancing.’ The soundtrack to ‘Dirty Dancing’ is actually really phenomenal.
Me, personally, Michael Rooker – I’m not a good victim.
MTV was such a great training for me. I did live interviews with everyone from Michael Jackson to Madonna.
Jason Voorhees was a kid who was picked on at summer camp, and Michael Myers was someone vilified by his own family. I think that’s why gay people like horror movies, because it’s seeking revenge on the privileged.
You’re never going to improve on a Michael Jackson song if you cover it.
I’ve raised Michael. I changed his diapers when he was little.
I’m a big Bulls fan, Michael Jordan fan, LeBron fan.
I had one day with him, and he was asleep in the scene, but I told my entire family that I was in a scene with Michael Caine.
One of the books we read a few years ago that had a big effect on us was Repeated Takes by Michael Chanan.
Michael Jordan and Michael Phelps are the greatest to ever do what they did, and I’m not. But if you believe that you are, then you’re almost as good as being that.
The experiences that I’ve had growing up with music, you know, I couldn’t trade them for any money in the world. Dancing in the living room to enjoy myself. ‘Enjoy Yourself,’ Michael Jackson.
At the ‘L.A. Times,’ I always wanted to write about artists I thought were meaningful. So I interviewed Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Eminem, White Stripes. And I could understand how almost everybody I interviewed had a sense of artistry.
For ‘Regulate,’ I was at home, and I came up with it. I was listening to Michael McDonald’s ‘I Keep Forgettin’.’ It was a record that I always loved, from being a kid and my parents playing it when they had their company of friends over. It was a record that just stuck in my head, and it just felt good.
I liked Michael Jackson and used to practice his steps. I enjoy dancing!
A lot of the guys that work for Warners and make these big films there all come from the same film school. Like Michael Bay, Zack Snyder, Tarsem Singh – they all went to Art Center in the College of Design. And there’s a certain expectation when these guys graduate.
I’m a Michael Jordan fan just like everyone else. I just don’t think he’s the greatest player ever.
Growing up, I was surrounded by music by the Stones, Carole King, and the Beach Boys. I didn’t know who Michael Jackson was till I was about 13.
When I was growing up in L.A. in the late ’70s and early ’80s, Michael Jackson’s was the first face on TV that looked like mine.
I like having black hair. When I was really young, I wanted to be Asian – Asian hair is beautiful. I also wanted to look like the girl in George Michael’s ‘Father Figure‘ video.
With one man, there was a freedom and liberation. That was with Michael Hutchence, my partner in life.
Kate Middleton has no blue blood coursing through her veins. Her father, Michael, is self-made, and he and his wife have been very successful with their party business, but they are and always will be strictly middle class.
Michael left because of the Bulls’ management, not because he’d lost his love of playing the game.
Michael Jackson asked me to sign a Playboy. I was more than happy to.
I want to be the Denzel of acting and the Michael Jackson of music.
If you got every single artist in the world in one room, and you put Miles on one side and Prince on the other side, those are the two people that everybody would be trying to get a glimpse of. And Michael Jackson would be the other one.
Michael Jordan brings millions of dollars when he shows up in an arena. Since money is how we judge people, he’s very valuable. But while that’s happening, Rome is burning within the black community.
It’s an issue that we need to have a national discussion about, the militarization of local police forces, and then when they are used to quell peaceful demonstration. Then we have a problem, and especially around this entire case of the murder of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson police officer.
What a blast it is to be here with Michael Moore.
Michael Jackson dominates my heart forever.
Perhaps the most satisfying thing occurred when Michael Jordan became a team owner and said to me, ‘I owe you a lot of apologies. It’s a lot harder to run a team than I thought.’
Minister and writer Barbara Kaufmann has addressed the subject of guerrilla decontextualization on both the ‘Voices Compassionate Education’ website and on ‘Inner Michael’, where she offers the kind of insights into the spiritual aspects of Michael Jackson’s creative artistry that mainstream media mostly ignores.
I’d do entire music videos in my bedroom, where I used to stand in front of my television memorizing the moves to Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It.’
My parents listened to a lot of music when I was really little. They used to listen to people like Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder and I used to be really into that.
Between ‘Futurama’ and ‘Simpsons,’ I’m able to work with the voices of Michael Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, and the cast of ‘Star Trek.’ It’s great, you know; it’s great to work with such talented people.
I’m obsessed with Michael Fassbender. He’s unbelievable. I think he’s a modern day Brando. Every movie that he’s done in the past couple years, I just died for him. He’s extremely fascinating.
The press seemed to take some delight that I previously had a ‘straight audience,’ and set about trying to destroy that. And I think some men were frustrated that their girlfriends wouldn’t let go of the idea that George Michael just hadn’t found the ‘right girl.’
But that was my very first time on a set and they said, you know, you have to stand on a mark. That little piece of tape that you stand on is called a mark. I kept correcting them and telling them that my name was Michael and not Mark. They said, ‘No, no honey.’ I was a little green.
I got to play with ZZ Top and introduce Bryan Adams and George Michael. And to have it all topped off by me winning ‘American Idol?!’ It’s pretty absurd.
I always wanted to work with Michael Jackson. His music will live forever and with technology nowadays… maybe I could.
When I first started doing comedy years ago, I used to be the biggest Michael Richards fan. I used to love this dude. He was on a TV show called ‘Fridays,’ and man, he was tall and lanky – and I was tall and lanky. I love physical comedy, and he was a physical comedian, and I said, ‘Man, I love this guy.’
If you were the greatest, you were the Michael Jordan of whatever business you were in.
I have known Michael Richards for something like 20 years. We’re friends.
Where ever the Mavericks are today, we owe it to Michael Finley. He was the one guy who stayed when we were a terrible team. He stayed and fought the fight.
I like Michael Bay a whole lot. And Jerry Bruckheimer. But I love Ben Affleck as a person, as a director, as an actor.
Justin Vernon is one of the collaborators Kanye will always go to. He doesn’t fit in with any genres – you never know if he’s gonna sing, like, the Bee Gees or some crazy, distorted thing. And you don’t know what he’s saying half the time. He’s kind of like Michael McDonald, like he’s got marbles in his mouth.
When I fought with Michael Johnson, when I took his arm for the kimura, I can break it, but I go very slowly, be careful, because I don’t want to give him injury.
Michael Jordan was like basketball Jesus.
I was in California the first time I heard Michael Jackson wanted to record with me. I was, like, ‘Nah, no way, he’s too big, it can’t be true.’ Then I got a call from Michael’s people at my hotel telling me he was interested. But I still wasn’t believing it – I thought they were setting me up for a TV practical jokes show.
Several years ago, I was asked by a songwriter‘s association to go to Nashville – I think it involved some kind of award – and be part of the showcase. It was myself and Stevie Winwood and Michael McDonald and then some country people that I didn’t know. The whole community was just so welcoming to me.
I know everything about Michael Jordan.
There’s something really amazing about watching an actor like Michael C. Hall or Jennifer Carpenter, who are completely professional and do everything so brilliantly, but yet can have a really great time on set.
I love Michael Keaton. I think he’s awesome – he’s such an awesome actor – like the ‘Beetlejuice’ films. I just love that Tim Burton stuff.
I loved Michael Jackson and Madonna. I styled my hair like Whitney Houston.
Michael and I had great role models. Though his father has passed away, his parents had an amazingly strong marriage, as do mine. Both weathered really tough times. For us it has been normal to stay together through difficulties. We grew up witnessing that firsthand.
I grew up a Michael Jordan fan; that was my first idol. But my true sports idol was Deion Sanders: he was the person I always wanted to be. I wanted to play two sports professionally, which would never happen, but to me, that was every kid’s dream.
I grew up playing sports, so I think of what it would be like to be in the NBA if you were a great player when Michael Jordan was playing. You could’ve been a phenomenal player, but you’re in the Jordan era. That’s the unfortunate thing about the competitive nature of entertainment. But we know what we signed up for.
I don’t want to be a Michael Moore-style artist, which is not to disparage Michael Moore. But he seems rather unsuccessful at winning people over who don’t already agree with him.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had John Michael Higgins in my brain in the funny department.
Michael Jackson loved epic symbols. In his shows and his videos, he always destroyed or salvaged worlds; he was the hero of parables about street violence, sexual combat, war and natural disaster. It was always apocalypse or apotheosis now.
This is the problem with the leaking. This is actually a terrible thing. Let’s say I’m firing Michael Short today. The fact that you guys know about it before he does really upsets me as a human being and as a Roman Catholic.
In Taiwan, I’d be like Michael Jordan walking down the street.
Senator Michael Bennet and members of the permanent political class have empowered President Obama‘s policies and their own agendas rather than the needs of constituents.
Michael Jackson has some contact with his mother. I know she is involved with the children.
Beyonce is very special. I think the super-pop thing that supposedly died with Michael Jackson is still there with her.
See, I have to do my best because I am not as glamorous or as well-equipped like a Beyonce Knowles or Michael Jackson, where their band members are close to 100-150 people. They even have great equipment which is flown along with the artists. They have a budget of around $5 million pumped in to make their concerts a hit.
When I was 4 years old, I thought that I wanted to be a dancer like Michael Jackson.
There came a point in time when Michael was under a great deal of pressure to alter the film in a way that was just disturbing to him. I had not seen the movie, yet. He phoned me in July of ’92 to look at his version.
I’m not afraid to tell the world who I am. I’m Michael Sam: I’m a college graduate. I’m African American, and I’m gay. I’m comfortable in my skin.
There are thousands of great artists that wouldn’t be doing the same kind of work if there were no music business machine. The ones who are popular would be doing much different work, too. Michael Bolton would be pumping gas.
I’m a huge Michael Lewis fan.
From Michael Jackson to Peggy Lee, I like it all.
To me, that’s the brilliance of Michael Jordan. He was an incredible, amazing individual player who matched his talents to the team, matched the team’s talents to him, and he lived in the middle of those extremes. I don’t know how you do that.
Michael Caine is a movie star, but he’s also a great actor. I can’t say that about every movie star. It’s the concentration he has.
Matthew Williamson has always been a favourite of mine, and I am definitely also rooting for up-and-coming designers like Michael van der Ham.
I was 14-15 when I first saw Michael Jackson dance, and I thought, ‘How can he move like that?’ I started following him. We didn’t have TV in those days, and could access videos on VCR. But who in Gujarat would keep a MJ tape? After a year or so, I knew somebody from Mumbai who got that tape for me.
‘Halloween’ is classic Michael Myers.
I really want to work with Rufus Wainwright. Michael Stipe from R.E.M. I would love to work with Kanye West.
Michael Phelps is a sporting god among men. It is hard to say if anyone will ever match his accomplishments, but it has been an honor to see him become a legend. He makes me proud of the American sports institution and proud of the sports that get mass attention only every four years.
No one beat Michael Jordan. No one. You could say a lot of different things, but the man was unstoppable. He was unstoppable. And I will continue to say that.
My name is Michael Pennington, and I am not a comic character.
We have been shaken by the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice – shaken, but not sufficiently unsettled. We must contextualize those losses, force our neighbors to become so deeply disturbed by what has occurred that they, too, are inspired to act to change the system.
‘Infernal Affairs’ uses a vibrating terseness usually found in the writer and director Michael Mann’s work. Thematically, this film deploys the techniques Mr. Mann brought to bear on ‘Heat,’ right down to using a similar cold-blooded electronic score.
In the old days, when a star left a still-thriving hit show, they’d celebrate by killing him or her off. But ‘The Office’ dispatched Michael Scott in a crueler and more final way: they made him normal. Since we’re talking about Michael Scott, ‘normal’ might be stretching it, obviously.
I began writing with a Michael Buble mentality. I think he’s fantastic, and it’s the perfect music for any date night, ever.
At a party in L.A., I met this middle-aged gentleman who I was talking to for ages when I asked, ‘So, what do you do?’ Turns out I was speaking to legendary music producer Quincy Jones, who worked on Michael Jackson’s hits. And there was little old me rattling on – I was so embarrassed.
I couldn’t believe I was working with Michael Jackson. I thought, growing up as a kid, I thought Michael was a cartoon.
At an incredibly divisive point in pop history, Donna Summer managed to create an undeniable across-the-board experience of mass pleasure – after ‘Bad Girls,’ nobody ever tried claiming disco sucked again. It set the template for what Michael Jackson would do a few months later with ‘Off The Wall.’
I was a big Damon Hill fan, and I loved Michael Schumacher.
When I started working on ‘Michael And Michael,’ it was my life for three to four months, and then suddenly it’s gone.
And Michael likes to read a lot. People don’t realize that about him but he reads a number of books per week and he’s fascinated just about every subject.
I was just totally taken by Michael Jackson when I was a little kid, like everyone else.
Loomis has always felt himself responsible for the fact that he did not stop Michael when he first murdered his sister, and so he’s got that guilt to live with.
I had been cut from the basketball team every year. But I was like, ‘I can turn it around! Michael Jordan made it!’ You see it a lot of times – you’ll have an athlete that you love, and then they’ll be like, ‘I also want to rap,’ and you’re like, ‘Don’t do that.’ I was that kid.
You can never entirely rest comfortably with Michael Black or Michael Paynes.
I’ve been caught in parachute pants. And on my high school yearbook, they used the wrong picture. They were supposed to use the picture of me with a nice suit on. They used me with my collar flipped up, in a fuchsia and white striped shirt. I blame Prince and Michael Jackson in the Eighties for that.
Michael had Neverland. It was his mission before Michael passed away to create a theme park, and we are taking over that mission.
I’ve sort of come to accept the fact that when I’m 80, people will ask about Michael Alig. I’ve had to realize that this is part of who I am.
I wrote a fan e-mail to Michael Chabon.
I’m not a fan of the Michael Keaton ‘Batman,’ which came out in 1989.
I couldn’t be ‘Johnny’ in front of a camera in acting jobs and behind the camera I like to be ‘Michael.’ With directing, you can’t do it by halves. There’s a lot of reflection, and I have found that I, as ‘Michael,’ thrive on it. It’s lovely coming home and feeling that stuff from a day’s work as myself.
To me, acting is like tennis. You’re only as good as the person you’re playing with, so if you’re playing with Michael C. Hall, what do you have to worry about?
I’m developing a little crush on Michael Fassbender. Really unoriginal.
I always have considered Michael Keaton to be a phenomenal actor because he navigates drama and comedy.
I grew up in Chicago, and I understand what Michael Jordan symbolizes.
When I was singing Jamie’s Cryin’, people were going out of their mind because it was the first time they got to see Eddie, Michael and Alex play those songs. That was a thrill.
Michael Chertoff and the Department of Homeland Security, they have the primary responsibility of ensuring that our ports are secure.
In college, I was teetering on the edge: Do I want to be an actor? Do I not want to be an actor? And then I saw Michael Caine in ‘Alfie,’ and I thought, ‘Wow, that’s what I want to do with my life,’ even if I knew I’d never reach that level of proficiency.
My producer, Michael Knox, he’s kind of my eyes and ears on Music Row. While I’m out on the road, he’s looking for songs, and then he and I will get together and go over songs.
Nicole Richie invited me to her birthday party, and it was at Michael Jackson’s Neverland!
The fire in the belly is essential, otherwise you become Michael Buble – famous and meaningless.
I’ve loved Michael Jackson since the minute I was born. He’s probably the most talented person ever. He was able to create such an amazing career and be probably the biggest star we’ve ever had.
I explained to the president that I’ve been pleased with my conversations with the Attorney General and Civil Rights Division regarding their helpful understanding that they aren’t taking over this investigation, but are conducting a parallel review of the events that led to Michael Brown’s death.
Huge props to Brian Michael Bendis for sort of shaking up the Marvel universe and just saying ‘there need to be people of colour in these comics otherwise it’s not representing the true world the way it should be.’
Michael and I talk at least every two weeks. He understands why I’ve done the things I have.
Although I get so much fan mail from Great Britain, tell me, am I more famous there than Michael Madsen?
Michael Emerson is just a prince. There’s something about him. He’s so sweet. I don’t know how to describe it. There’s something about him that’s a bit royal.
It’s terrible. How can we tell the world who the real Michael Jackson is?
Michael has a connection with children, just like Mickey Mouse does, and he brings happiness to them, and joy.
Any Michael Jackson song will make any dancer go nuts.
I have been able to have a family and to dedicate quality time to my two sets of twins and my husband, as well as to serve on the boards of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson‘s Research and Montefiore Medical Center.
I attended Amherst College from 1951 to 1955. The first two years were a revelation. There were innumerable exchanges with brilliant classmates, among them the playwright Ralph Allen, the classics scholar Robert Fagles, and the composer Michael Sahl.
I’m not a natural. I had to teach myself – or be taught – everything I do. I just spent hours and hours in the mirror mimicking Michael Jackson.
I can remember me and my cousin always fighting. He was a big Bulls and Michael Jordan guy.
Anyone who still supports George Bush would still let Michael Jackson babysit their kids.
I would love to work with Jack Nicholson, Saoirse Ronan, Michael Shannon and James Franco in the future. I think those actors are amazing, and they are my favourite actors by far.
Growing up, my parents always played artists like Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith and Michael Jackson, so I just grew to love their music. And I just love so many diverse artists for different reasons; some for their instruments, some for their edge, some for their vocals.
If we all had a little bit of Michael Jackson in us, I think it would make the world a better place.
I don’t walk around the street thinking, ‘I’m Michael Madsen,’ but then again, I am that guy, and sometimes people do take notice of me. Sometimes it’s really not comfortable.
When you start making a movie, people want to know: Who’s the star power? And very early, I realized there’s not a lot of 26-year-old black actors who have been given the opportunity to be the lead of a film. It’s, like, Michael B. Jordan, and then we’re done.
Michael Vick is my favorite player.
I thought that I was going to be Mrs. Michael Jackson, but I was ready at 20 and 21 to get married, and he was not even close to getting married or having a girlfriend at that time, but yes, we dated. We dated for a while.
I watched ‘Free Willy’ probably 100 times. I nearly wore out the VHS tape. That movie was my introduction to Michael Madsen. When I finally saw ‘Reservoir Dogs‘, I was like, ‘That’s the guy from ‘Free Willy’!’ – which is probably the wrong way around.
I want my movies to be audience experiences. As much as I like Michael Haneke, I’m not going to make a Haneke film. That’s just not in my DNA.
The end of the trial and the ‘not guilty‘ verdicts on all counts, clearing Michael of all charges, mean that he can now concentrate on the future and his art.
At 7, I was shooting 3s with so much ease that the guys at the neighborhood park were impressed. Michael Jordan was one of the best humans to walk the earth in my eyes, third only to Jesus and my mother.
Michael Coleman, now that was a boy that taught me some stuff too.
I like Michael Buble.
What I like about Elvis is the same thing I like about James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince. These guys, back in the day, there was no smoke and mirrors. It was just raw talent. They would step out onstage and command an audience. Talk about awesome.
I’m not a big crime reader, but I’m reading Michael Connelly’s ‘The Reversal.’ I’m going back to his novels. I’m also reading Keith Richards’ ‘Life.’ I’m always fascinated by the transition from the innocent late ’60s and early ’70s and the youth culture becoming an industry.
When I was six, right before I started swimming, we went to a national competition here in Maryland and watched Michael Phelps swim, and I got to meet him afterwards, and I got his autograph. Fast forward nine years, and I’m at the Olympics with him, and it’s like: ‘Woah.’
I go back to things that are nostalgic for me – Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Britney Spears, Stevie Wonder.
Who says a center can’t make the pass into the post? Michael Jordan, effectively, was a post player and you saw with the championship teams players able to do multiple things.
As brilliant an individual that Michael Jordan was, he was not successful until he got with a good team unit.
All true artists in the world from all countries and all genres are influenced by Michael Jackson. There were music videos before Michael Jackson, and there were music videos after Michael Jackson. He brought such a huge change in the marketing and positioning of the music video.
I hope my fans will grow with me. I want to be like Michael Jackson: 5-year-olds love his music, and 75-year-olds love his music.
Michael Schultz’s ‘Cooley High’ is a classic. Oftentimes, we don’t get to see films about coming of age, especially for young African Americans.
When that Twitter account came out, @HopperDancingTo, and they put me to all these different songs, I thought that’s pretty much one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. I watched that for a couple hours straight, him dancing to George Michael and all these stupid songs.
Michael Giles the first drummer of King Crimson, never agreed to the name King Crimson. But then, if you’d knew Michael, you would know he didn’t agree to the album cover either. So maybe Michael didn’t agree to the point of definition with many things.
Working with Michael Chiklis is a lesson in professionalism and staying focused. That’s what Chiklis brings all day long.
You can talk about Michael Jackson all you want, but John Hughes was the soundtrack to my 1980s life.
When I was 17, my producer Rodney Jerkins was working with Michael Jackson at the time. He knew how much I wanted to meet Michael Jackson, so he says, ‘Would you like to come and meet him?’ I’m like, ‘Are you serious? Of course I want to meet Michael Jackson! Where do I meet you? Where do we come?’
I’m a mash-up of everyone. My influences would be Michael Jackson, Brandy, Aaliyah – those types of people. So if you can imagine them – and with me taking them, and then putting my own twist and the influence on it – that’s musically what I would sound like.
If you don’t think it’s possible to win five golds, go talk to Michael Phelps.
I think even before I knew I wanted to be a rapper, I wanted to be an entertainer. I was really into Michael Jackson as a kid.
I used to think of George Michael as being mechanical, like a scientist in a white coat, working in a laboratory, creating perfect harmonies, and all the while I was secretly admiring him.
I was brought to Hollywood by Gene Roddenberry and Michael Eisner, chosen from 600 hopefuls to star in the original ‘Star Trek’ motion picture. The success of the film, coupled with the allure that I had shaved my head for the role, put a spotlight on me.
The biggest thing I’m seeing – and I have to be careful what I say here – is that people are tired of the old guard and the familiar brands. They’re looking for more individuality and creativity, and that’s coming out of this whole new wave of younger brands: Thom Browne, Michael Bastian, Robert Geller, myself.
You know how you either grow up in a Michael Jackson house or a Prince house? For me it was Michael Jackson. I could never decide whether I wanted to be Michael Jackson or marry him.
Obama was 200 percent advertising. I promote myself to sell my brands. Because now I am a kind of celeb. I am in a different world than the fashion industry. I am with Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Madonna. I build me as a celebrity.
I am in love with old school funk and soul music. That’s what I grew up listening to, and I want to bring that style back with my music. I love artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and more!
Michael Moore, whether you like him or hate him, has done something very important.
I’d love to do a film with Michael Fassbender. He’s one of my heroes. I think he’s absolutely amazing and I would love to do a project with him.
I vividly remember my mom would put on this VHS of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits music videos. I’d watch that all the time.
The guy that made me wanna make movies… and this is off the wall-is a guy named Michael Pal, the British director.
I was in love with Michael Keaton. He was very funny.
I wish Michael Schumacher would come try NASCAR. That’d be cool.
A lot of my friends were a lot into theatre a lot earlier than I was. A lot of my friends were kids who were in The Broadway Kids and the kids auditioning for Gavroche in ‘Les Miz.’ I was never that kid. I was weaned on Michael Jackson. Not literally, because that would have been odd.
I listened to the radio, so I was influenced by everyone from Michael Jackson to Milli Vanilli. But thankfully my dad had a collection of Cat Stevens albums while my mom was listening to jazz.
I don’t want to go all Michael Jackson on you, but I never really had a childhood.
I remember, in school, writing Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson and asking them to come get me out of class. I would imagine them running down the hall and asking my teacher, ‘Ms. Daniels, can we get Missy out of class? We’re here to see Missy.’
Nothing is better than the moment you have Michael Bolton dressed as Forrest Gump and you see it in action.
The man that got me into collecting sneakers in the first place was the man they call Michael Jordan. He was the one who kind of exposed me to the sneaker world – he was my favorite basketball player, and he had the best shoes.
I think Michael Moore is a hero.
One of my favorite memories was one time Prince picked me up and said we were going to Michael Jordan’s birthday party.
To be honored by your peers is incredibly gratifying and I am so thankful to my colleagues across the league for this recognition. I’m also grateful to the talented and dedicated coaching staff I work with every day in Toronto. To be recognized with an award that bears Michael H. Goldberg’s name is very special.
To describe the world Michael Jackson has created around himself as a childhood fantasy isn’t quite accurate. Thanks to wealth and celebrity, he has been able to live as a superannuated child. With the help of plastic surgery and dramatic affectation, he has made himself look and sound pre-pubescent.
Growing up, you’d see Michael Jordan on everything from Gatorade to shoes – everything. Obviously, that’s something pretty cool for an athlete to aspire to.
As African-Americans, that’s what’s being played fast and loose with, our citizenship. When you have the Trayvon Martins and the Michael Browns being shot and killed, it’s because, on a certain level, there is a kind of mutability in the understanding of citizenship around the black body.
Michael Brown – when he lost his life, there was more focus on what he had done sometimes than what was done to him.
Part of Michael’s uniqueness, I think, comes from the fact that he worked with music. He had a tape which he gave me with many different compositions, really eclectic. These pieces of music were sources of inspiration.
To me, Wonderlust is all about living life with a sense of adventure. I’m so honoured; I love being a Michael Kors woman.
Michael was very specific during rehearsals. When he was pleased, he always had this charming grin.
I think there’s a lot of different ways to win. You’ve seen teams that win championships with a super-duper star like Kobe Bryant. Those championship teams with Michael Jordan certainly had a great, great player.
This is a very big victory for Michael and we are all very proud that he has been completely and totally vindicated in court, as we were certain he would be.
Scottie’s game changed with where he was at physically. He wasn’t the same player at 21 as he was at 30. Both he and Michael aged gracefully in this league and that’s the beauty of being a professional player. You continue to grow and continue to change your game, but you do it to be just as effective.
Liberace was a miracle. You talk about who he was and what he did, and then you look at who he inspired, from Elton John to Cher to Michael Jackson to Bette Midler. There are so many people that came to see him. Elvis was there, watching his shows.
I did not choose necessarily on the basis of significance. If you have a vote for the most significant athlete, then you have Ali, then you have Babe Ruth, then you have Michael Jordan.
Girls slightly younger tended to be Donny Osmond girls or Michael Jackson girls, but for my generation, it tended to be David Cassidy.
I’d love to work with Michael Buble, with Tony Bennett, with Damian Marley, with Andrea Bocelli.
When I was three years old, one of the first albums I ever heard was Michael Jackson’s ‘Off the Wall.’
Michael Jordan was that guy – he was Michael Jordan. So whatever he did, we followed.
While my friends were outside practising to be Tony Hawk or Michael Jordan, I was inside playing Mozart, increasingly disillusioned and bored.
If you look up the definition of greatness in the dictionary, it will say Michael Jordan.
For all that Michael Jordan could run, jump and entertain, he is best known for one thing: He won. If you want to be a great player in this league, you have to focus on one thing – the bottom line, which is winning.
I can tell you categorically that we at 60 Minutes did not pay Michael Jackson one cent.
I thought I was going to do some cult, cool, late-night interviewing thing on BBC2. But everyone kept saying: ‘No, Michael, you’re teatime, you’re not cool.’
When I think of musical geniuses, I think of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and Prince. That’s who comes to mind.
Michael Anthony is the Diplomat of Rock N Roll. He is the regular guy.
Obviously dunking on Horace Grant and Michael, in those circumstances, is just an incredible thing to happen. I’m happy I was able to make that play, and I’m fortunate I was in that position where I could make that happen for my team.
We are not interested in cloning the Michael Jordans and the Michael Jacksons of this world. The rich and the famous don’t participate in this.
I really wanted Michael Jackson to be in the first Men in Black, but he didn’t want to be considered as an alien!
Michael Fassbender is just a creative force: he finds authenticity in singularity with what he brings, and it’s always authentic. He doesn’t try to be creative and different for the sake of it.
It might sound odd, but I want to thank Michael Bay because he’s been saying how important it is to show 3D with the right luminescence. And that’s very important for this film, a lot of which was shot at night or with very low illumination.
Michael Bisping is a really tough competitor and a hard worker.
For years, I kept the two separate: Michael Horse the artist and Michael Horse the actor. I like the acting, but I’m an artist; that’s my identity.
Michael Jordan was the greatest practice player I’ve ever seen.
The guy that I worked on ‘Thriller ‘ was a genius and he was 20 years old, but it was like working with a gifted 10-year-old. The guy who I worked on with ‘Black Or White‘ was crazy. Michael had gone mad.
There is no question that Darren Wilson caused the death of Michael Brown by shooting him, but the inquiry does not end there. The law authorizes a law enforcement officer to use deadly force in certain situations. The law allows all people to use deadly force to defend themselves in certain situations.
I’ve worked with all sorts of random people – everybody from Metallica to Britney Spears to Ozzy Osbourne to Michael Jackson to the Beastie Boys. I’ve got a really strange CV. It’s interesting – I work with a lot of these disparate, different people to learn what it’s like to work with random people.
There is a strong demand for Michael Jackson’s music and merchandise, and that will only increase as more material surfaces in the years following his death.
Michael’s the ultimate entertainer. After Michael Jackson, it’s Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Bruce Lee.
I’ve become friends with Michael Mann and Oliver Stone; I’ve seen those guys work and that was great to see.
