Mark Ronson - Mark Ronson's 'Wild' Sleepovers With Jackson

Mark Ronson says his sleepovers with Michael Jackson were ''pretty wild''.

The music producer used to be friends with the late singer - who died in June 2009 aged 50 - when he was younger and would often stay over in the same apartment as the 'Thriller' singer, where they would have a lot of fun joking and playing around.

He said: ''I was probably 12. He was super cool. You're 12 years old and he's the world's most famous overgrown kid, who's running around your friend's apartment with you. It was pretty wild.''

Mark - son of writer and socialite Ann Dexter-Jones and former band manager Laurence Ronson - admits his childhood was quite star-studded and was once saved from drowning by Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney.

He told live magazine: ''That sounded like one of my mum's crazy stories. But then I did a song with Paul McCartney a few months ago. After a couple of days in the studio, he came in and said, 'Your mum's Ann, right? Me and Linda (his late wife) would always run into your parents on the beach in Long Island.' I told him about my mum's story that he saved me from drowning one time, and he said he vaguely remembered something like that.

''So maybe he backed up her claim, which means I can't really tease her about it now.''

Again this is a headline which suggests more than it is. It isn't untill you read the whole story, you realize these sleepoveres are exactly what Michael Jackson always said they were: just having fun, joking, watching Disney movies. Why always these suggestive headlines? This is how the media keeps labels sticking to people, even when they weren't correct in the first place. I hope the media will realize they can do so much good with the power they have instead of abusing it just to get ratings. Do the unexpected and don't feed the beast called sensationalism.

Of course he's not going to touch Mark Ronson. His parents are too high profile to take the risk. He's from a well to do family with connections. Even wacko must have known he was a risk not worth taking. Heck Mark's associated with the high brow of the entertainment world. Who is going to lay an abusive hand on him and risk the almighty fallout? Look what happened to Jacko abusings the dysfunctional families and how he couldn't get away with trying it on with them. No way he was going to risk the wrath of the Ronson's lol Fans are so gullible just like wacko was. At least I'm giving them something to rant and be abusive about. It's what they do best. Excuse a disgusting lowlife. You don't have 30 years of bad publicity when you're a good person. There has to be something in it.

You're right kiddo. Mud usually sticks for a reason and the tabliods can't be to blame for every problem he had. They/he blamed them every time he was caught with his hands down some boys pants. The world are also well aware of tabloids and their style to not fall for it. We can make up our own minds without being brainwashed. But I don't like that people excuse or turn a blind eye just because they like the way someone dances. That seems to be an indicaiton to them that to dance means you are above suspicion. And that is scary that people will allow such behaviour and think the rest of the world are wrong because we find digusting behaviouir just that. How can someone so perverted by praised because he can dance? Only by fans. He wasn't that great a singer. Weak voice that had no power.

I went to many sleepovers, with my friends when I was a young girl/teenager. My friends and I were all around the same age but we didn't 'sleep' with each other nor were boys there. We grew out of it and unless you're extremely immature or with a mental disability, everyone grows out of it. An adult male or female (I'm not sexist) sleeping with children who are not their own will always be looked upon as being suspicious. Anyone who doesn't know that is a fool. And thats why sensible adults don't sleep with other people's kids. And if we do, we know what we can expect. Jacko did this KNOWING his reputation, yet still did it then cried when he was called on it. He was an adult but seems he didn't have the good sense that goes with age, maturity and wisdom.

& As for kiddo & Mary Poppins I wouldn't talk if I were you. I think it would be best if you look at the skeletons in your own closets instead of looking for the would be skeletons in Michael's.

Isn't it amazing how a title could spark all sorts of images? Here we have a story of a kid & the wold's most famous overgrown, laughing, joking & goofing off, & the title makes it sound like a pedophilia orgy. Hey editors & writers @ contactmusic, why don't you do your readers a favor & tell the truth for a change instead of pandering to the same old innuendo gossip & bullsh**.
