Jackson 'Hid From Staff In Secret Tunnel'

Late superstar MICHAEL JACKSON once hid in a secret underground tunnel at a concert to avoid talking to his staff, according to the King of Pop's voice coach.
Yvie Burnett, who tutored Leona Lewis when she won Britain's The X Factor in 2006, worked with the Thriller hitmaker during a tour - and she was stunned by his "rude" behaviour.
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I remember a long time ago, I was working with Michael Jackson and he had a tunnel built which took him from the stage into the dressing room. He crawled into this big white tunnel so he didn't have to speak to any of us.
"He was probably the rudest (celebrity) because we all went up to meet him and he wouldn't speak to anyone, not even the crew who were beside him."

Michael Jackson, the RUDEST celebrity? Hardly!. What makes this woman think we give a crap what she thinks?? Has she ever thought that maybe Michael was so shy he felt the need to do this, he's even said so himself countless times how shy he was and people have said he didn't like looking people in the eye when talking to them. Michael Jackson was probably the most gracious,humble and kind celebrity of them all, so stop talking bollocks woman :).

MJ is rude?!! Oh, please give me a break! One thing I know is, God gave us different abilities to understand and interprate things. I think we all are trying to interfere with work of God here. This voice coach's ability to think is so narrow and that is how God created this person. There is a name for people like these. Is it "Dumb,dull, thick or cloudy"? May be all suit the purpose. This is a category the coach belong to, so please dont worry too much and waste your time to hurt about these strange interpretations of what MJ did. This is an opportunity for us to see the difference God can make in creation and thank him for making us thinking better than this MJ's ex-coach.... if at all she has ever been. Sorry MS coach, I am not buying your story because Michael is nice and kind. That is a fact. RIP MJ. I love you forever more!

I think I would hide too if I were to know Yvie Burnett was standing where I had to pass after hard work. I think she loves too much attention which no one is willing to give after hard work on stage. MJ might have had his reasons but me, I would hide and really hide because I would have sensed already that Yvie Burnett is not kind and could have said anything to the media about my spoilt make up after stage sweat. She is a big mouth. Isn't she? MJ was too intuitive to sense that I guees. Ha haaaaa

Anyone who believes this nonsense should have their head examined. Even though Micheal was notoriously getting bad press, there has never been anything reported about him being rude to fans or anyone else for that matter (except maybe Tommy Matolla and even that was done in a pretty polite way under the circumstances). This person needs to get a life and let MJ rest in peace now and forever!!!!!

WOW! people are so desperate for attention that they make up LIES!!! That is pretty sad. Its obvious when other people who work so close to Michael say he was the nicest,kindest,generous, full of love, a christian and down to earth guy. This military guy spoke to my nephew at the military base I work for and told him that he use to think Michael was gay but not any more until he meet him personally and he said he was the nice,kind and respecting person. He said that Michael told him not to be nervous that he was an regular person like him. Before this guy joined the military When this guy was down and out (poor) Michael also bought him a house and he said that Michael wouldn't give money unless their was a reason (A NEED!)He also helped Michael Jackson with the Sony situation. So Yvie Burnett stop speaking LIES! It will catch up with you WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND!!! Its all about L.O.V.E RIP MJ

What I would like to know is when she was working with Michael? Her vocal coach was Seth Riggs for 32 years. I did a search on the credits of all tours (since the Jackson Five to This is it) and can not find the name of this woman. For this reason I ask In which tour she worked with Michael? Thank you.

I call BS. More than a year after he passed away and this washed up woman needs her 15 minutes of fame. She makes me sick. Everyone tells of how sweet, kind, and generous he was. And she has to bash him to get into the papers. It is pathetic.

the only rude person here is someone who spews forth accusations about a departed and love friend, who for obvious reasons can not reply! Nor should there be a response necessary!!!
